This is How to Battle Right – Battlerite Review [PC-Steam]

Screw that point and click noise, take control and control the fight – Battlerite Review

I am not a fan of League of Legends. I do not see the appeal. This is nothing against the players or anything like that, but I am not a fan of point and click to move your character, then click and wait to attack. I do not mind it in real-time strategy games because it feels like chess or like calling plays. But there’s something about being a character and not having fluid control that I cannot get into. And I know I’m not the only one, because the great people at Sunblock Studios made a game that’s like a MOBA, but controls like a top-down beat-em-up. That game is Battlerite.

Battlerite is a team arena brawler that focuses on PvP. Pretty much like a MOBA, but with more engaging controls. Imagine being able to aim your shoot and determine the exact moment to release the attack. Some of you may argue you can do this in LoL or DOTA to which I say, MALARKY. You click your target then press the skill button, and sometimes if there’s nothing in your AoE the attack waits until something gets there. The situations I’m complaining about aren’t the main components of the game, they’re just why I don’t enjoy them.

In Battlerite, you’re basically a gladiator and fight to win the battle. Each character seems to have a bit of a back story, and you get to hear about it as you play through. It’s a multi-play online game, so Story isn’t a huge part of it. However, gameplay is where it is at!

What I do enjoy about LoL, and other MOBAs, are the intense skirmishes that break out. Getting a kill is hard earned, and getting multiple is almost godly. Battlerite is able to emulate those intense skirmishes in its own unique way, that plays very differently, but requires the same strategic mindset and has all of the same intensity. It is AWESOME! I now get to enjoy those huge hours of time lost playing what is essentially the same game and level over and over again. I know that sounds negative, but if you are involved in it, you get it.

Lastly what really ties the game together, the controls. This is what makes the game, having control of your character. It doesn’t matter if you suck, you know why you die, and how to avoid it. It’s not going to be a mistaken click that is slightly off pixel. It’s on you. The graphics and sound are of the same level of any major MOBA, and the characters are becoming just as intriguing, but the control setup is way more engaging than the other MOBAs.

Battlerite is the action gaming version of a MOBA that many have been waiting for. It has all of the elements of other great MOBAs, but the control and fluidity of Gauntlet. The only downside is the very shallow story. Also. this might not be the game for you if you are accustomed to, and prefer, point and click game play. I would equate traditional point and click MOBAs to playing Madden and Battlerite to playing a pick-up game. The game may seem much less grand from an outside perspective, but nothing is ever going to match the experience of actually playing in the game. My Battlerite review, 8.5/10.
