Occasionally here at Player2.net.au we will play something that deserves your attention but probably doesn’t need a full review written for it. Be it DLC for the latest AAA title, a little indie game or even an Android/iOS title. We play these titles for the same length as the average blockbuster movie (about 2 hours) and report back to you the reader on what we found. So grab your popcorn and settle in for the latest episode of Blockbuster Gaming.
Blockbuster Gaming – The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot
Free-to-play games are becoming more and more common, despite the (often deservedly) bad press they receive. Pay to win, wait times for actions and very limited non-paying playtime are just some of the curses of F2P formula. Luckily some companies are attempting to fix these problems and find the perfect balance between creating an enjoyable game for everyone and the necessary evil of making money. The Might Quest for Epic Loot is Ubisoft’s attempt at perfecting the formula and from the time I spent with it, they are getting pretty close.
The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is an interesting game, one part Diablo and one part Dungeon Keeper, it tasked me with looting other player’s castles all the while building up the defences in my own keep. Individually these two gameplay elements are a little below what you would expect from the titles they imitate. The looting castles component is not as competent as other ARPGS and the castle protection is not as involved as other like titles. But together these two styles created a game that is both unique and entertaining. The two modes complement each other nicely. I found it a nice break to head back to my castle and change the layout after the intense action sections.
The free to play system is quite lenient. There is a lot that can be done without having to pay a cent and the rest of the items could be purchased with in game currency if I had the time to earn it. I actually enjoyed my time so much that I purchase the “infinite pack” which gave me all four heroes and a wide selection of unique traps and weapons. I felt it was worth the $20 investment to have everything open to me but I still could have gotten plenty out of the game without it.
Really there is no reason not to download and give this one a go. Plenty there for everyone to like and there is no loss if you don’t enjoy your time apart from the small 800mb download. The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot can be downloaded from both Steam and Uplay so what are you waiting for, there is free fun to be had.
