Product Description

After an age of warfare, the superpowers of the land of Valoran have come together to form a governing body that will settle all disputes behind the closed doors of the Institute of War. Their task is a noble one — to lift the impossible weight of bloody war off the shoulders of the world and place it upon a select few — The League of Legends. On the Fields of Justice, legendary Champions forge alliances and resolve their differences in battle arenas. In the League there is one rule that reigns over all else: Winner rules all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Endless Unique Gameplay in a Tiny Package November 17, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Summary:
---Having played this game for several months during the closed beta, I can only state that the game keeps getting better. At first impression, gameplay was already an amazing experience.
---The game consists of a matching system, where you are matched with other players to form a team. You each select a hero and are placed against another team of heroes to invade the enemy base while defending your own.
---By purchasing the collector pack, you are giving yourself a head start into the world of LoL. You will not regret the purchase and even if you do, the Riot staff has superior customer service and will complete your satisfaction.

Pros:
---The characters are very lively and fun to play. Each has their own fun attitude and great sound clips. While the graphics felt a bit childish at first and too bright, I've grown quite fond of them as they are quite personal. Animations are great.
---The gameplay is always changing, meaning each match always feels like a new game. The re-playability of the game is amazing, all things considered. You can make excellent come backs and really get great satisfaction from playing a match or two.
---The game rewards talented players with excellent tactics. There is little luck involved in the game and your skill can determine the success if your entire team. Each player has a key role in victory.
---No cost of entry. While you do not have to purchase the game to play, having the collectors pack aids in future development of the game while giving you a head start on hero selection. The 20 heroes included are very well balanced and give you tons of playing styles to choose from. There are 3 ranged DPS champions, 5 melee DPS champions, 2 support champions, 5 tank champions, and 5 mage champions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, but no need to pay the price for retail February 15, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, League of Legends is free. That means FREE, every character is unlockable through points you earn in-game. Of course you can just pay for them, but since acquiring new characters to play as is kind of the metagame that ties each session of League together, that spoils your fun. You DO need to shell out money to buy alternate skins for your toons, but not having those won't hurt your enjoyment of the game any. Buying the retail box gets you some unlocked characters and free skins off the bat, as well as credit to buy more, but now that it's a semi-rare product it isn't worth the prices sellers are asking. I wouldn't buy it used either; since all the unlocks are probably already claimed.

Now to the game. League of Legends is a standalone successor to the Warcraft 3 mod Defense of the Ancients- essentially an arena deathmatch action RPG. Think Dawn of War 2 without the units, or for us oldsters, Nox multiplayer (that alone should get you interested). Players choose an avatar with unique abilities then head out to one of 3 unique killing fields to assault capture-able points, destroy enemy towers, fight streams of minions, and assassinate enemy players. Throughout the battle your hero will level up gaining new abilities; you can also buy them equipment to further customize how they play. This all resets after every fight, but winning increases your "summoner" level, and allows you to buy new champions and persistent upgrades that you take into each fight. Combat is hectic and fun, and the short match times of LoL (about an hour at the most for a tense match on the largest map) help keep frustration low.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beta tested, Gamer approved. November 19, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been beta testing League Of Legends since early July of 2009. What can I say, I loved Defense of the Ancients (WC3 Custom Map), and I had to see how well this game related. It really is a beautiful game, the graphics will please you regardless of what system you run (as long as you meet required specs). Best way to categorize this game? Session based RTS/RPG hero team fights and continual summoner progession.

This is a fast paced game that will always keep you on your toes. The summoner progression and character progression will literally keep you striving to better yourself for as long as you see fit. You could literally play this game for 5 years, and not get bored. For example, I played DOTA since the Reign of Chaos DOTA maps came out, and continued to play the game for about 6 years. I replaced DOTA with League of Legends, and I do not regret my decision one bit. This game is so good, I even got my wife to play it! She never plays computer games, and she loves LoL (best acronym ever for a game?).

Another thing that puts this game "leagues" above other free games, Riot Games will not SELL gamers advantages over others! I love this, I've played too many games where you can simple buy your "power" or items, and stomp on players who do not have the money to compete. The only thing Riot Games sells in alternate character skins and other things that don't really give other players unequal advantage.

I encourage everyone to try this game for free, and if you really like it, please, PLEASE, support the developers and buy the game guys, they're doing really great things, and come on, they built the engine from scratch! Hook 'em up!

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Game - but the Match Making System is just Terrible
Hi

I have played this game for over a year now.

The teams are never balanced when I play solo ranked 5v5.

Their match making system is very poor.

The game, League of Legends is a FREE game you can download it on their website. If you buy this, you are purchasing a SCAM. I can't believe Amazon hasn't removed this!
