An objective look at the early access of Armello along with some personal thoughts. "I was first impressed by the presentation of the game, mainly from the opening intro. After getting into the gameplay though, it didn’t take me long to feel bored. The amount of luck involved in the gameplay, along with having to sit for long periods of time where you’re doing nothing except for watching other characters move make it feel like your individual skill doesn’t matter and that you don’t do much playing yourself. There was one match that I played where I was clearly doing worse than the other three characters, but I still won since I somehow accumulated enough prestige to win the game. Except for the luck and balance issues, it’s not a bad game if you want to play something that doesn’t always need your attention and doesn’t rely on a lot of skill."
