The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story Reviews
The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story is fairly straightforward, but it nails the feeling of playing as Sylas. The story goes to some interesting places and is accompanied by some great bosses and a momentous finale.
A revolutionary tale told with memorable characters, excellent combat, and surprisingly forthright politics.
A potent combat system and thrilling story are slightly held back by a slow start and rudimentary level design.
There are a few typos in the game’s UI, like the status effect ‘inmune’, or receiving a blessing with an extra S. But despite a few small issues, I otherwise found this Riot Forge title to be another smooth ride through League’s increasingly complex canon. The Mageseeker makes the smart move of setting up some truly hateable villains, and then lets me smash their hopes and dreams — what more could I want from a game about toppling the elite?
Solid and definitely has an audience. There could be some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.
The Mageseeker A League of Legends Story fulfills its goal and gives us an ambitious, lovingly crafted story that Riot Games MOBA fans will love. We only regret that his proposal is somewhat tarnished by a combat with a lot of potential, but repetitive and by a level design too flat.

Mageseeker is perhaps my favorite thing to come out of Riot Forge publishing yet. Digital Sun has already proven that they have a good grasp of what makes an action-RPG fun, but they put their chops to great work here, bending a highly interesting corner of League of Legends lore to their style. Sylas fits them well, and they make his story sing in turn. Between compelling ability-stealing combat, chain-flinging traversal, an ever-expanding and upgradeable arsenal, and a beautiful musical score guiding another awesome visual and narrative interpretation of League of Legends, Mageseeker is an incredible time. Whether you’re a fan of League of Legends or not, this is a journey worth seeing through to the end.
The Mageseeker is another reason to be excited about where Riot are going to take League of Legends in the future.
The Mageseekers certainly has an audience, especially with LoL having over 152 million monthly players. And while I wasn’t aware of Sylas before this game, I did find his story interesting but for as much as I liked him, I loved all the cameos. Being able to see Shyvana in her full-size dragon form was a treat and I could really appreciate the size and majesty of her in that form. Something that just isn’t possible with the top-down perspective of matches in Summoners Rift. Which is why I am all for these games starring the champs from LoL; it allows those personalities to really shine and garner some new fans of the series and its deep lore. While I didn’t love The Mageseekers mainly due to my issues with the overly fast combat and my difficulty keeping track of Sylas when things really got going. However, as a fan of the lore, I enjoyed his heartbreaking story of revenge and redemption.
The Mageseeker is an enjoyable ARPG with some interesting insights. Unfortunately, a mission design not up to the standards and some technical issues prevent it from aspiring to the Olympus of the genre.

The Mageseeker is an enjoyable, expressive action RPG that stops just shy of outstaying its welcome.
The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story successfully delves further into the lore of the franchise while offering a new experience that will appeal to newcomers. The high-tempo combat and engaging narrative, make this an enthralling action RPG that will keep you hooked throughout. Although the side missions and some of the hub world extras feel a little unnecessary, the slick gameplay will keep you coming back for more.
Adapting a monument like League of Legends is not an easy task. The small studio Digital Sun manages to deliver a good game but not one without its flaws. The story takes a while to get going, as does the hero's power growth. LoL fans will find The Mageseeker A League of Legends Story an honest but imperfect adaptation.

The Mageseeker is a concentrate of speed and action, penalized only by a monotony of the stages and a lack of variety of content offered in the exploration.

If you can get past the bugs and performance issues at launch, The Mageseeker proves itself to be yet another strong addition to Riot's growing catalogue of intriguing spin-off games. Sylas's bittersweet quest supplies a compelling story that nicely complements the fast-paced combat and magic-stealing action, providing fans with an enjoyable action experience that fans of 2D action games will want to take note of. We'd give The Mageseeker a high recommendation to anyone looking for another good retro hack 'n' slash for their collection-this one is deeper than it may appear on the surface, and it stands up well next to peers such as Unsighted or Hyper Light Drifter.
The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story is an exhilarating action title that you don't need to be a League fan to enjoy.
Mageseeker's gorgeous pixel art aesthetic and exciting action combat, paired with interesting mechanics, make this a game that even non-League of Legends fans should check out.
Mageseeker is a slog that even die-hard League of Legends fans will have trouble getting through.
Yet another great game that expands the LoL universe. Mageseeker has some issues, but they are easy to ignore – the gameplay and the story are so much fun!
