    One of the best digital card games ever released, with the caveat that even with so many great selling points, it's also an incredible investment in time and brain power to get to a point of competency.

    Artifact pulls a ton of flavor from Dota 2, but it’s not necessarily a game for Dota 2 players. Artifact is instead a highly cerebral card game of push and pull, with intense resource allocation and randomization management. Artifact is absolutely not for everyone, but it excels at creating a crazy strategy cocktail pulling from every bottle on the shelf. For card game fans, Artifact is not to be missed.

    Once you manage to overcome this impressive rock, however, the game experience becomes satisfying, fascinating and satisfying. Valve, in short, has embarked with knowledge of a difficult road, tortuous and uphill compared to competitors, now we must see if the community will be on his side. Artifact, we repeat, proposes a challenge that is not suitable for everyone.

    Artifact is as hard-core as Dota2 and you might feel exhausted when you finish a single round which usually would last half an hour. The greedy economy system is lacking in long-term reward and it gives players no choice but to spend more and more money. But despite all those flaws, Artifact is also an innovative game which fuses basic MOBA mechanics and TCG rules together, and those elements actually work well. It's still full of potential.

    Artifact is one of the most polished digital card games available. The game’s multi-lane mechanics bring MOBA elements into card game form, providing challenging strategic gameplay. Valve still has a way to go to prove Artifact’s long-term viability though due to its lack of a progression system and ranked modes.

    Artifact feels like the MOBA of card games, in more ways than one. There's just as much strategy, just as much variety, just as many resources to manage, and it's just as challenging.

    There are no reasons why you should buy this game, unless you are the biggest Dota 2 fan in the world.

    Core gameplay is good, cards on the market are cheap, could use an expansion to flesh out some of the deck archetypes but that'll comeCore gameplay is good, cards on the market are cheap, could use an expansion to flesh out some of the deck archetypes but that'll come eventually. About to get colourblind support which is a godsend.

    New update made it even better btw.

    At this moment i don´t recommend this game to any friend, there is a LOT to improve in the game to be worth your time.
    The game need casual and expert rank
    Need some way to encourage you to keep playing, quests, skins, cards, tickets, gold, sleeves, sprays...anything!
    Chat ¬¬ (c´mon that´s basic and should be in the game day one)
    Balancing (cards like axe or drow are pure bullcrap)
    TOO MUCH RNG!!! The rng in this game goes to increase your damage, to double your cards to even cheat death...RLY?!...RLY!!! ¬¬

    Don´t get me wrong the game is good and has potential, but it has too many flaws right now...So just wait.
