A solid console adaptation of an intricate and rewarding competitive experience, but not without rough edges.

One of the best MOBAs on any console and a good introduction to the genre in general, thanks to its more console-friendly controls and fun premise.

SMITE is a fine game and a great choice for folks who may not spend a lot of time on their PC, but there are a number of shortcomings present in both editions that prevent me from playing it as much as some of its competitors. Still, it's a perfect starting point if you're looking to get into the genre, especially with the intuitive controller scheme.

Smite is an enjoyable experience and fun to dip into. It was also useful when I wanted to scratch a MOBA itch (which sounds like some horrible ailment) and didn't have the level of concentration I still need for Dota. There's a refreshing exhilaration which comes from being down on the board instead of up in the sky and it might catch an audience who bounced off other MOBAs or found them dull or frustratingly complex.

Hi Rez studios has a game changer on their hands here. SMITE is an incredibly fun and addicting MOBA that is perfect for those who are looking from a change of pace from your typical MOBA. It features a great cast of characters, great gameplay, fun game modes and plenty of incentive to keep playing. It's free to play but it isn't pay to win. It has been an absolute joy seeing SMITE grow over the last 8 months and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for the game.
