Dota began as a user-made modification for Warcraft 3 and has grown into one of the most played online games in the world. Following in the tradition of Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat, Team Fortress, Portal, and Alien Swarm, Dota 2 is the result of Valve hiring the community developers who built the mod and giving them the chance to finally build a full product out of their idea with the help of a professional team of developers and artists at Valve.

Simply irresistible and addictive as hell.

Unforgiving from the get-go, but a landmark in competitive multiplayer design. [Oct 2013, p.68]

There's a steep, daunting learning curve, but DOTA 2 offers one of the most rewarding game experiences you can find on PC today. [Sept 2013, p.80]

The most refined take on the genre yet. [Issue#138, p.98]

One could resort to cliché that DOTA 2 is a game born Bookmarking time, if it were not already done. They get many great titles over the years, but few are those who are not only excellent but also make the lives of their players, making it a special place to meet friends, regardless of distance or problems life. A title can be extraordinary for days or weeks, but to be for more than a decade has to be something very special and that is the legacy that DOTA 2 honors with honors. A server has spent the last months of his life stuck with their formula. Well, me and four friends, each night we tried, so carefree, new combinations and strategies to defeat the opposing teams. We sometimes work and sometimes not, but the basis on which we play is so perfect and gives us many possibilities to experience that after each game we always want to start over to see what we can after having learned from our successes and mistakes . My friend is a fucking kamikaze. Take advantage of every opportunity to embark on the enemy without worrying about anything else. But now I'm learning to support you, to heal and protect Abaddon, and the thing we start to work better. No we are not we will never be professional players, but had fun. And after all, that's what matters in a videogame. No one had ever before given us so much for so little. And what is left to give. Of course, a classic . Whoever you are, thanks IceFrog.

Superb: A hallmark of excellence. There may be flaws, but they are negligible and won't cause massive damage to what is a supreme title.

You’ll never be able to play enough Dota 2 to totally master it, and although it’s an F2P game it can be too cruel and unusual for some. But persist through the tough start and accept the idiosyncrasies, and you’ll start to understand why so many have stuck with it for more than a decade. Why would they need something new when they’ve got this incredibly deep, rewarding multiplayer experience? Why would they need to play anything else when they’ve got Dota?

Dota 2 is an excellent game, complex and filled with surprises and rewards for all those patient enough to endure its very steep learning curve.

Right now it’s the only game that I want to come back to even after a solid beating. It offers a dynamic and balanced gameplay based solely on player skills. If you haven’t tried Dota 2 yet, you need to. [CD-Action 09/2013, p.54]
