Guardians of Middle Earth is a surprisingly good MOBA on consoles, suited well for veterans and newcomers to the genre alike. The Lord of the Rings franchise is a match made in heaven for online battle arena games, and fans will get their fill of iconic characters to choose from. While the game does have its shortcomings, it’ll keep you coming back for more with its deep progression system and balanced gameplay.
After spending a fair amount of time in the game, I can safely say that it came across without a hiccup and what we were given was a well executed and fun experience. The abilities fit each character’s play style to perfection and playing against AI Guardians doesn’t diminish the fun. The game can be purchased retail or digital and, with a season pass available, you can expect plenty of reasons to come back for more.
It's too bad, because when you manage to get (and stay) in a game, it really is a shining example of a pure MOBA being brought over to the console space. And between the simplified controls, easy to understand Guardian Belt system, and the optional timer for matches, it's also one of the best ways to get into the genre. All while not losing a single bit of the intensity that MOBA players have come to expect. It's just too bad such a solid game can be made occasionally unplayable by technical issues.
