Guardians of Middle-Earth Review | Gaming Examiner

PC gamers have had a long history of MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) titles to experiment with, console owners however are relatively new to the genre. Despite their simple structure and first-glance appearance, the games are popular do to their strategic player combat, tactical gameplay and complex PVP mechanics.

Getting a MOBA title that provides both diverse and well-balanced characters can be a very difficult task for a developer. Taking on the task of building a MOBA title for the console audience is Monolith Productions, you may know them from the FEAR franchise, who crafted a unique MOBA title with some very strong PC elements built into the game. The developers face a very large and very protective fan base, both in the MOBA community and the licensed ‘Lord of the Rings’ franchise. Those two groups can be a threatening mob to please, both of which are very dedicated to their genre and to their franchise as a whole. (Guardians of Middle-earth, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.0/10
