Prepare to defend Middle Earth.
Guardians of Middle Earth takes place in the heart of J.R.R. Tolken’s fantasy universe of Middle Earth. The game is shown from a top down perspective to give you the best view of the action on the screen. I am normally not a fan of this perspective, but for a multiplayer online battle arena game this works. Normally the perspective is used in a attempt to hide low quality graphics, but Guardians of Middle Earth delivers in that regard as well. Every spell, monster, and arrow are created with pretty impressive detail considering the genre. While the presentation of the spell and upgrade menus take a while to get used to, anyone familiar with MOBA or even MMO will feel right at home.
