Intro & Summary
A quick paced, fast-thinking strategic board game, Hero Academy can be a bit of a mixed bag due to poor marketing/DLC practices, but because of its unique nature and cheap price, it's still a diamond in the rough.

Highlights
Deep strategy and competitive leaderboards are available, but it's also very accessible to casual players. It's very solid and concise on the whole.

* Options to Start games with your Steam friends, Twitter Friends/Followers and more are very useful and notifications of your game progress work well
* Great looking assets and themes, though marketing these as DLC is going too far
* Good Tutorial

Mistakes
There's a real problem with the time it can take to play a match, since the fast pace is sometimes half of the fun in Hero Academy. It plays like chess via traditional mail, in that you can wait hours or even days for your opponent to return a move (there's even an achievement to take 24 hours+ to take a turn), which isn't in itself a bad thing because it helps keep it casual enough that you can have 10+ games open at the same time and not have to worry about committing to each, but it would've been so simple to add options to set time-limits and game-closing options to enforce quicker games, which many people want from a game like this.

The DLC offers extra teams with avatars, and some include items for TF2 and while the extra content is fairly good, it's still a jarring way to use DLC for most people, especially when it affects people who are not willing to buy the DLC negatively, essentially creating a pay-to-win feel, albeit not entirely in your face.

* Selling cosmetics and styling as DLC is fine, but selling teams which affect global gameplay leaves a sour taste for most
* No options to play only faster paced games
* Annoying Robot Entertainment DRM

Recommendations
Priced at between £5.59/7.99€/$7.99 and £12.99/16.99€/$16.99 at the time of review. The nature of this game makes it one of the most replayable games around, and you'll likely continually find yourself coming back to old games.

However, it's also available on iOS, and feels a lot more casual on there due to the more immediate nature of PC gamers. It's also much cheaper on mobile and so is probably the better option for many.

The DLC offers extra teams with avatars, and some include items for TF2. While the extra content is fairly good and adds a lot if you know your playstyle, it's still a jarring way to use DLC for most people, especially when it affects people who are not willing to buy the DLC negatively, essentially creating a pay-to-win feel.
You will probably never use some of the Teams, so if you've never played before, buy the base game only and find out which paid teams you like, if any.

I would not buy this game - I think i got it from a humble bundle? - the game is very buggy and states that the turn has not been submitted ( you then need to click off on to another game ) for the turn to submit, there does not appear to be any dev support.

update - I would also add that in the limited time that I have played the game I have had to quit out 2 times as the background has turned white, and the game has crashed.

I have over 900 hours in this game and it is a fun game, but the game gets repetitive after a while and waiting for the other players to take their turns gets boring. Furthermore, it is hard to find people to play against for more than a single game. What makes it worse is that this game has not qualms about its freemium design.

With a ridiculous amount of hours on record this is the most addictive game in my library. It is NOT pay to win as another reviewer has written. Strategy is key to victory here, not cash. If you think this game is pay to win then you obviously haven't put in the patience required to learn each team's strengths and weaknesses and adjust your strategy accordingly. There are additional teams that one CAN purchase if they wish, it doesn't matter if you choose not to though, as all of the teams (although quite unique) are exceptionally well balanced.

The game can be a bit buggy.. eg. Sometimes you're greeted with a blank board and it's neccessary to refresh the game state before the pieces appear. This is probably one of the unfortunate side effects of being a cross-platform game. The strategy involved is on par with chess, perhaps not as rich as some players would like (It's no Magic The Gathering). Some people complain that players are not forced to move within a time limit. I happen to like this feature of the game as I can leave the game minimized while I am working and take my turn when I am ready.

In spite of it's minor short comings, Hero Academy succeeds in providing interesting and engaging turn-based strategy game play, which if you're a fan of such games you know there are far too few of them on the market.
