Strife is an action-packed multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) developed by S2 Games. Though Strife is a MOBA where two teams of five choose their characters, pick a path or lane to fight in, and try to destroy each other’s bases using their abilities and with some help A.I.-controlled creatures, it simply feels different.
S2 Games calls Strife the second generation of MOBA. I think they have the right to do so. What separates Strife from the pack is an extensive background story and overall gameplay changes. For example in Strife you can craft items or train a pet (Pokémon Style!) that you can bring to battle.
Though the game utilizes the same old graphic engine as Heroes of Newerth it has done some great improvements to lighting, physics and overall graphics.
Strife is a breath of fresh air in the ever growing field of MOBA’s.
Yet another MOBA to join the ranks of the ever growing genre. If you are familiar with the S2 legacy you will feel right at home in this Multiplayer Online Battle Arena.
