Gigantic is off to a good start, but it'll need a little variety in the future if it wants me to stick around.
Though its changes to the MOBA standard are creative, the multi-round structure leads to drawn-out matches
In some ways, Gigantic is a jack of all trades, pulling influences from half a dozen different disparate games and genres. That mixture might sound messy on paper, but in practice developer Motiga pulls it all together to create matches that feel tense, challenging and hugely rewarding.
Traditional MOBA gameplay with an impressive cast of characters and a great setting help Gigantic breathe fresh air into an old genre.
Gigantic is a game that looks and plays great. The cast of characters is colorful and lively, with each playing very differently. The core gameplay mode is fast, while still retaining a strong strategic layer. The problem is Gigantic is a shallow experience: one gameplay mode on three maps. The game may become broader eventually, but right now it needs more. That said, being free-to-play means it's still worth your time to try it.
Motiga have created a fast paced and intense game that MOBA and shooter fans will both be able to sink their teeth into. An Incredible art style mixed with fantastic hero designs makes Gigantic stand out from the crowd and offers limitless possibilities. The few problems the Gigantic has are eclipsed by the sheer fun that that it is to play and I don't see myself dropping this game anytime soon.
The final game turned out really well, with tight gameplay and a great selection of characters.
Each guardian feels so unique and fleshed out. None of them feel like carbon copies of other characters ripped straight from different video games.
Gigantic is an entertaining combination of a MOBA and a team based shooter, and what it lacks in originality it makes up for in charm and polished controls.
The combat and pacing by itself is enough to interest players, but without recognizing the game's potential hardcore MOBA audience, Gigantic will have a hard time keeping them around.
