Playing Smite for the First Time

Last night Tony and I recorded an episode of our podcast and decided afterword we should play some co-op. After a brief accounting of our co-op games we decided on Smite on the PS4.

Neither of us had played Smite or any game like it really. I could tell that it worked similar to League of Legends, another game I have little-to-no experience with. As we booted up the game and played through the tutorial, I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. The tutorial did not thrill me. However, to my pleasant surprise, I found myself really enjoying it!

Our first real game solidified my interest. For our first match we played arena mode and I chose Thanatos. As a member of the assassin class I used him to rain death upon our enemies. His skills set is geared toward killing other players. I found a exhilaration when a player would run from me to only die by one of my long distance skills.

One of the things I quickly realized was the amount of depth this game has. Through the store players can customize their characters strengths by equipping and upgrading their items,  purchasing relics, and  getting consumable items. There are many paths to take, and many characters to choose from. This allows for the game to have longevity for me. I can’t wait to play the other characters and learn which are my favorites.

Now I know many of you are probably thinking,  So what? League of Legends is the same thing but better, and you may be right. I should probably play league one of these days.Regardless, Smite is a fun game which takes advantage of many different mythologies to create a fun and unique game! I look forward to playing this game more!

Here’s our replay of that night!
