Heroes of the Storm is a multiplayer online battle arena game. It’s basically a fun, team brawler game that will have your blood pumping and your friends shouting for joy. According to its creators, this game falls under the “hero brawler” genre. But formalities aside, is it really worth spending your time on?
It’s not what you’d call a lag or a bug, but the game seemingly doesn’t know that the worst has come. To be exact, when you play the game and you (and your teammates) are not doing well or have already lost, the game instead eggs you on and tells you not to give up. Now, reassurance is a good thing but it seems that the game doesn’t know that you just lost. So all that’s left to do is to wander around the map and think about the game that you just lost. But yes, the game itself doesn’t know you were already defeated and there’s nothing left for you to do.
The game is sleek and good looking. The characters are well-fleshed out and the games are not boring at all. There’s a ton of things happening all at the same time and the game really engages the senses. And did we mention the characters? Okay, we did. But the characters in this game really make this worth playing. So you really have to make sure you build a team that knows how to work together. After all, a team in HotS is designed to work together in unison and accumulate experience at the same time.
For fans of DOTA 2 and similar games, HotS is a fun game that’s well-crafted and will have you spending a lot of your time on. It’s not perfect, by any means, and a lot of non-fans of the game can be quick to point out some of its negative points instead of the good stuff. There’s a lot going on, for sure, but for some players this is actually a great thing for a game to have.
