League of Legends

5 01 2011

So I’ve been lucky enough to be able to play League of Legends the past few days and I must say that I am thoroughly impressed.

For those of you who don’t know about League of Legends and haven’t played the Warcraft 3 mod DOTA let me fill you in a bit. It is a free to play online multiplayer game where you and your team of champions fight against another team and try to destroy their home base. League of Legends was created by Riot Games and it’s development team actually consists of original creators of DOTA (Defense of the Ancients).

The gameplay is pretty fun, and you can learn how to play rather quickly. It also forces you to work as a team trying to make your way into the enemy base. This can be both a good and a bad thing, if you have a team that can all get together and talk in say Ventrilo or Skype then it’s great and you guys have no issue working together. However, if you play with a group of randoms then things can get pretty tough. Especially if you’re playing against a team who is communicating together!

As for the graphics, they are kind of cartoony but they are still really good. Considering it is a free game and the style it is in doesn’t allow for tons of realism the way they chose to design the graphics was a great idea.

Overall I really enjoyed this game, I wish I had a PC desktop so I could actually play it! Make sure to check it out at www.LeagueofLegends.com there is also an extensive Wiki page for it that you can find here.

Just as a little treat here is the video that Riot Games put together to promote LoL (That’s right it’s called LoL! How awesome is that?) The video is pretty sick and gets you all stoked to play!
