„I love how it adds more RTS sensibilities to the mix, and even if the Early Access state is a little rough (there's placeholder art, and some pathfinding issues) I can see the potential.“

"Dropzone Preview – A Twist in the MOBA Formula", cgmagonline.com

„All in all, the whole package sits on a good engine with a large amount of challenge, meaning that it won't get old anytime soon.“

„Orcs Must Die!: Unchained feels promising. It’s lighter – more slapsticky – than some of the other games in the genre. [Read]“

Orcs Must Die! Unchained Closed Beta Impressions - Rock Paper Shotgun

„But just looking through my starting hand it instantly became very clear that Hex is like nothing we’ve seen, especially as far as digital TCG’s go. Each ability and description had me more interested than the last. The cards in Hex are limited only by the creativity of the team making them. Which means there are no limits for Hex. It’s a new game with entirely new and unique cards made specially for the game.“

„The title is still a work in progress, but on its current trajectory, Robot Entertainment has the potential to make a splash in the crowded MOBA space.“

2010

„Grown ups, though, should be prepared for that sceptical look when they start a quick game of Elsword during their lunch-break. But it might also happen, that their colleagues turn out to be secret teammates who would love to join. It’s tons of fun, playing together with others!“

Martin Deppe, GameStar.de
