At the end of the day, Ruined King: A League of Legends story is great RPG for two sets of fans. League players (and those from other Riot games) get the opportunity to explore worlds they may have heard about, but never visited. For those unfamiliar with League, you get the opportunity to explore a land of pirates in an accessible story-driven RPG and expose yourself to Runeterra's universe. The story is compelling and beautifully told, and the lands of Bilgewater and Shadow Isles are full of secrets. While it's great you need not grind, the combat system feels like it was changed for the sake of change. Airship Syndicate knocked it out of the park in most ways (be it soundtrack, world design, storytelling, and gameplay), and I'm so excited to see more!

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is one of the best games of 2021 although its similarities with the previous game of the studio, "Battle Chasers: Nightwar". If you were of the ones that enjoyed the 2017's Battle Chasers, you will enjoy this game with an enhanced version of the combat system and also an interesting story well developed over the League Of Legends lore.

Ruined King is a fun romp through gorgeous environments with a team of likable misfits. Airship Syndicate doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it didn’t need to — Ruined King still manages to serve as a great on-ramp to both League of Legends lore and RPGs in general.

Ruined King is a very fun turn-based game that's enjoyable for both experienced and new comers, the story seems to be more enjoyable by LOL fans even though it's a good introduction for some of this fictional universe most famous characters, however, it might still get boring with some too stretched quests and not very good design to move around its world, and more importantly, there are some annoying tech issues that sometimes make the game unplayable.

By masterfully evolving a winning formula, adding the Riot touch to that of Madureira, Airship Syndicate proves once more that passion always makes the difference and that, sometimes, it helps to overcome some flaws.
