Hearthstone is the latest game that Blizzard has started to produce and has this week become open beta so as me and my mates have started playing it I thought it would be a good time to give my initial impressions.
Having played a bit of Magic the Gathering mainly online I have to admit, I wasn’t really expecting much from this game because card games aren’t really me. I just find them a bit slow and boring at times unless its something like poker where your putting money on the game to make it a little more exciting. However I have found myself thinking just one more game, along with a group of friends picking up the game it allows for a bit of competition.
I have know where near got to the bottom of the game or have a great understanding of it but so far, I have really enjoyed it and can see this game being my go to game when I want to do something but just don’t have enough time to play League. What is also great the tie in with World of Warcraft and the way it uses the advantages of the different classes to influence the way you play the game and construct your Decks. As a newcomer to these types of games, don’t panic although there is a lot of strategy and learning needed to compose the best deck possible. As you can see from the video above it does a very good job of suggesting what cards to put into a deck.
Overall I think its a very promising start to the game I wouldn’t necessarily improve anything but as it’s still in beta it will be interesting to see what changes they do make and how it develops. I would give this game a solid 8/10 with the daily goals or objectives they give you it’ll get you coming back for games, along with being one of these games you can put down and come back to.
How have you found it and have you got any tips? Let me know in a comment below.
