Welcome to another great review by G2G and this time we are happy to pray to the mighty gods for a peaceful death.
SMITE is a battle ground for all gods to express their might, powers, show their good looks and flex a few muscles along the way.
The game officially released on the 19th of August, but I've been playing it way before with Xbox One Preview Program.
"Players can choose their god from five differnt fighting types and use their unique powers to triumph over the opposition in 5v5 team matches. SMITE changes the MOBA genre; rather than observing from above the action, the game’s third person perspective puts players into the thick of combat."
The game features many different game modes to choose from, with the most popular mode being Conquest. This let's Players split into two teams, with three to five players to each team. When the game launches, all players begin on their own sides of a map, with the team's 'fountain'. When the game starts, you will see one to three continuous 'lanes' running from one side of the map to the other. Each lane is defended by a 'Phoenix' which is protected by a pair of defensive towers. The phoenixes and towers deal a large amount of damage to any god or AI that comes too close to it. The goal is to destroy the opposing team's Phoenixes and the Titan, a giant warrior, who must be defeated to win the game.
In every game mode, you must choose a god to play with. Currently, you can choose between 68 playable gods on SMITE.
Each god has a basic attack and four spells with differnt effects, such as area of effect damage, crowd control, buffs. These spells are acquired and upgraded when your god levels up by gaining experience from being in range of Enemies when killed, taking down towers or phoenixes and killing enemy players. The maximum level you can reach is 20.
There are several game types which divide into five main groups.
Practice which contains the main tutorial, solo/co-op versions of Joust, Arena,
Conquest Map Roam, Assault, and Siege, along with a practice exclusive, Jungle Practice, that allows you to test characters and builds.
Co-Op contains cooperative versions of Joust (3v3), Arena, and Assault.
Normal contains Arena, Conquest, Assault, Joust (3v3), Siege and Match of the Day.
League is the ranked versions of Conquest and Joust (1v1).
Custom contains the Challenge versions of Arena, Conquest, Assault, Joust, and Siege.
The graphics within the game are remarkable and look great on the Xbox One and they run at a solid 30 frames per second.
I personally love playing Smite and enjoy it very much. I just don't know how people get so many kills online.
Overal this game is worth downloading for free and trying out, with the option of downloading extra God's and skins.
