Is It Any Good?

Our review:

In some ways, this entry in the popular adventure series is an improvement on previous installments, but it also falls short across some of its other game modes. The single-player story mode is very fun and offers an admittedly typical "good versus evil" narrative with a dose of quirky, self-aware humor. The graphics and sound are nice, and the controls are simple, and should you choose to use it, there's an autoplay button that lets you sit back and win without even trying. Better still, the energy rewards are extremely generous, and you can double your rewards by watching 30-second ads. It's entirely possible to play a good long time without spending a dime, and that's fortunate, because progression could take longer than you expect.

The multiplayer modes (Arena and 5v5) must be unlocked, so don't expect to download the app and jump right into combat against other players. And when those modes are available, don't expect them to handle versus play the way other MOBAs (multiplayer online battle arenas) do. For one thing, all hero growth and upgrades happen before the match. For another, there's no in-match shop or skill upgrades to buy. These nontraditional multiplayer tweaks you can get used to; what's bothersome are the menu problems that prevent you from knowing if invited friends are entering the match, while other menu issues keep you from receiving post-match rewards. Certainly problems like these could be addressed in the future, but the attempt to synthesize single-player RPGs and online battle arenas could be more than hard-core MOBA fans are willing to swallow.
