Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Another installment in the Warcraft Universe has been released earlier this month. I was lucky enough to get into the beta but sadly, didn’t have too much time to play it. Now that it has been fully released I sat down and played a little bit.

If you enjoyed any of the Magic the Gathering games, then you will enjoy Hearthstone. You start out picking your heroes which defines your deck’s potentials as well as your special abilities.  You can pick about every class there is in World of Warcraft right now, and you are then a famous person from that class. Personally, Mage decks, Jaina Proudmoore, are fairly powerful when they get the right cards. Hunter decks over power you easily if you don’t concentrate on the correct cards.

The game play is fairly simple.. You start off, like with any card game, drawing your hand and deciding if you like the hand or not. Most of the time, you just skip your turns and you only start out with one Mana gem. You gain a gem every turn so you can summon more powerful monsters.  There are a few cards that have very special abilities.  Guardians, for example, have to be attacked first, and they normally have a lot of armor, similar to a tank.

The goal is to, defeat your opponent. Simple enough when you look at the big picture. You win new cards as you progress further up the ranking, making your deck better. The PvP aspect of this game, seems to be working at a fair level. When you que up to find a player, it will most likely give you someone who is a worthy opponent, which is someone around your level, as they don’t look at decks.

Currently, there is incentive to play Hearthstone.  If you play and defeats 3 people, you are awarded with a mount. The Hearthsteed, as well as given an achievement for this accomplishment.

This  game is very simple to learn and keep up with, it is just a luck of the draw. The real complaint I have is that I had to do the tutorials again. They were a bit long, and excessive in my opinion. You can’t even play against other people if you haven’t finished them either. Instead of the 5 different tutorials they have you do, it really should be just  the one that tells you the basics.

All in all, this game is fun iif you have free time between killing Horde or raid bosses. It’s a great time killer and it is free. There is talk of it being released to mobile phones, so keep an eye out!! I give this game 6/10!
