    The best thing, since toilet paper.

    One thing you need to understand about this amazing sport (it is a sport, you can not deny it) is that if you do not have a highly competitive personality you will most likely fail. But sense of satisfaction of winning a... Read Full Review

    A game that is good no doubt, but still leaves something to be desired.

    I've been playing the Dota 2 beta since mid last year, and introduced a few of my friends to it, which they have come to love this game. Valve has nailed basically all game play elements nearly perfectly, graphics ar... Read Full Review

    Not rewarding enough to play.

    Aside from critical acclaim, I will tell you, this game is not as great as it's cracked up to be. In case you're unfamiliar with this title, or how it plays, I'll give you a brief description; You, and a team of a few ... Read Full Review

    Free to play, but with highly balanced set of heroes and items, the game is simply the best MOBA ever created.

    The best MOBA by far, even if compared to HoN and LoL; the heroes and items are more balanced and thus the gameplay is more versatile and balanced. Dota2 is based upon Defense of the Ancients from Warcraft III, but adds... Read Full Review

    Very hard to get into at first but once you are in, you'll play it for a decade. When the fun begins it never ends!

    First i should mention this, this game is probably the hardest game you will ever play. Because skill cap is so high, even after playing it for years you'll realize how little you actually can play the game. There is no ... Read Full Review

    Defenders of The Ancients 2 is a great game coming from one of the best mods available.

    Valve made a great choice by making a modable standalone version of DOTA. It raised the bar for making the modding community stronger with having the game to run on the source engine and also made it "stand-alone" in one... Read Full Review

    Coming from League dota 2 can be a a shock to the system, Couriers, buybacks, death penalty oh my. It can be a lot to take in for a league player that is more familiar to the simpler ways of Riot game but once you put s... Read Full Review
