"This game is like a nightmare that is actually a good dream."
I've been playing this game my whole life but only the part where the game was out. This is Riot Games game.
Gameplay-The game plays fairly well but it's really 50/50. Sometimes you will pull off sweet combos that wreck your enemies and other times the game will reject your commands and get you killed and cause you to lose. This is very frustrating and nobody likes a broken game. Luckily Riot is working on the bugs that infest this game. But right now its really luck whether you enjoy the game or not. 5/10.
Story-The game uses "lore" to give information about it's world. It was good with the Journal of Justice system, pumping out fun and engrossing information about the world of the League. In fact I would spend hours each day thinking of what would happen in the next installment of the JoJ. Eventually it was canceled because Riot just wants money and JoJ didn't pull any income in. This crushed them and made the game basically mindless gaming leading to nowhere. 3/10
Graphics/Sound-The graphics are a hit or miss for most. Only the people with the highest breed of computers will be able to play this game on high details while maintaining a high FPS. Most people these days don't have that luxury, and are forced to play this game on low quality in order to maintain a working FPS. IF they dare try to play on high, they will suffer with unplayable FPS. The sound is unnoticeable and hardly memorable. 2/10
Community-LOL the games community is utter garbage. You will find crybabies, jerks, and trolls in every single match. There is no avoiding it. They also plague the forums and everything there.
Playtime-This is different for everybody. Either you will find your first few games enjoyable or infuriating. It will determine if you will continue playing or not. First impressions are everything. If they get hooked it'll be pretty hard to drop. Once you hate it though, you hate it and won't turn back because this is a game that won't really change what it is. It will always be the same but with different champions/items. 5/10
Final Recommendation-This game is worth giving a try. There is nothing to lose since it's free. Since this game was recently named the most popular PC game, you should give it a whirl to see what all the hub-bub is about. You will either like it and love it, or hate it and despise it.
Final Score 5/10
Reviewer's Rating: 2.5 - Playable
