There aren’t many card games available to be played by PC users, to be honest. Being an avid RPG and card fan in real life, I couldn’t cope with the fast dropping amount of people that I could play with. It wasn’t long before I had barely 10 people to enjoy DnD (Dungeons and Dragons) or MTG with – that was a problem. Then, Blizzard came with the perfect solution. Excellently coded, fairly balanced and addicting online card game that was something else than Magic: The Gathering – Hearthstone.
When I got invited into the closed beta, I was beyond happiness. I soon found myself downloading the game through their launcher and anticipating the moment I’ll be able to fight the tavern manager on my way to true PvP. There are enough players out there for me to challenge that my queue time never goes over 20 seconds – that’s the main reason why HS (the shortcut from Hearthstone) is, in my opinion, the perfect online card game. Due to being made by Blizzard, it will never run out of fans, therefore you should be able to play it at any time of the day.
The second reason I love Hearthstone is because the rules are simple – I never had to read up on the game online to make my way up to the 5+ ranks on the ranked ladder. The mechanics of the game are written on the cards and presented to you during the tutorial – the only thing that could use some upgrading is the crafting system – I feel it lacks some additional words here and there to make it fully explained. Even my sister, who has never played card games before (ah, the kids nowadays) made the game enjoyable – that’s something huge to say!
All in all, it is my belief that Hearthstone is worth trying out by every gamer out there, doesn’t matter if you’re hardcore or you play few hours every Sunday – due to it being free and available on Windows, Mac, Linux AND iPad, you can enjoy it whenever you are. Android client has already been announced, so that’s it – go check the game out here.Read More »
