So, I picked this up with a friend a while back(before it went free to play) and it wasn't anywhere near as good as the videos led me to believe. You can be the dungeon master and torture your friends! Except you have to use one of the 3 maps that you've probably already beat 4 times and have VERY little influence and anything you do is anounced to everyone.
As for the different characters. There's a wizard, assassin and warrior. Each character has 3 versions. The wizard sucks, especialy the ice version (version 2) version 3 is kinda utility/damage but if you compare it's damage to an assassin, it's pathetic. He has a sort of shield ability to help an ally out, which is pretty helpfull if one of your team mates is down, so the other can pick him up safely. The warrior is basically the same in each stage, but one of his versions has temp invulnerability and taunt so if you have that you can stall a huge mob to let an assassin leisurely ♥♥♥♥ everything. Assassin get's most DPS best missile speed, can insta kill pretty much every enemy if he gets behind them. If solo, second stage assassin OP, if you have a taunty warrior you can try assassin version 3 (charge ups and penetration shots).
You are forced to have 3 heroes and they share lives, so if you want to play alone, you're forced to have 2 bots who will die at the drop of a hat and waste your lives and when you run out of lives you lose. You can still be running around winning, but if a bot wastes enough lives you lose regardless.
If you're bored as hell you can go a few rounds, but it just doesn't have any real replay value after the first 10 minuts.
