Dota 2, or Defense of the Ancients 2, is the sequel to the originator of the MOBA Genre. Like all MOBA games, in Dota 2 you will control your hero along with 4 allies to take out the enemy team on the opposite end of the map. Dota 2 is a bit more simplified in that there is only 1 map and 2 game modes, but that does make it easier to understand for the new player. The graphics in Dota 2 are probably the best of the entire genre, with a great attention to detail in both the scenery and the sounds. The champions in Dota 2 are all very unique and none play like the next. The most difficult about the game is learning what each and every hero does so that you can not only know how to play yours, but play against the enemy. Dota 2 is a difficult game to get in to as there is no tutorial, you learn as you go or against bots in private matches. Dota 2 seems to be in perpetual beta state, and you’ll need a key to play it, but there are plenty of sites around the web that offer free keys at any given time.
