seems obvious from the gamespot and boomtown review that they actually havent played the game.

gamestop makes some decent remarks about promised content and steep learning curve, but their big gripe seems to be that its not a good value and you are paying for future content.... well you dont have to buy it, you can play it for free so that pretty much negates all their arguments about value...

overall i would say this game is 8.8 or so. implementing voip and fixing it so the icons on the left accurately reflect your teammates health and level (not just when u are looking at them) would easily bump that up to a 9. i think riot has done an excellent job, and im still playing the game. they just need to poll the community and see what things they should prioritize.

also events like the showdown snowdown will help gather a base. or maybe like a half priced champions or half priced runes day (or maybe just double experience/ip weekend)

guild wars does a lot of stuff like double xp and monthly events that might be worth looking into. maybe riot could even add in little quests or achievements that would give xp/ip rewards. (like kill 10 master yi - 100 bonus xp, or get 3 aces - 200xp/200 ip, etc)

Good job Riot you deserve every word of the praises. I think everyone here knows that youll continue to support/improve the game so who cares about the scores given - they can only go up in time.

i think a big point of theese reviews is that alot of the testers/reviewers somtimes dont even play the game they just look at the game and read other reviews 'n' mix em togeather to get something in on deadline, even if its not true.

Everything about them is complete G A R B A G E, honestly i have not seen any realistic results or review from them unless it was a copy/paste job.....dont ever think about gamespot and life would be easier i promise

I'm really annoyed by people *****ing about how inaccessible this game is. If you took 5 seconds to play HoN or DoTA, you'd realize Riot has done FAR, FAR more to make the game newb-friendly & intuitive. It may not be ideal, but look at the competition :X

Also, I read the entire boomtown review; but after reading "Glorified Tower Defense", I knew it was going to be a horrible review. That is the WORST genre definition I have ever seen given to MOBAs. It doesn't play ANYTHING like a tower defense game.

I agree that it was released too early. It still seems like it;s in beta but it's getting better and I have bought some things. Still disappointing though. At least release twisted treeline from beta...

7.5

This statement is so true:

This competitive strategy game is fun, though it offers only a fraction of what you should expect from a retail product. - Gamespot
