There are many MOBAs out there. However, Smite sets itself apart thanks to its third person display. This is a refreshing take on the genre that typically favors a top down look. As a result players feel a greater sense of immersion in the game.
All of the standard tropes of this game type are present. They include clearly defined team roles, character build creation and ultimate abilities. However, these mechanics are set within a narrative that appeals to a wide range of people. Mythology is a very popular theme. It has continued to find greater appeal thanks to blockbuster hits such as God of War and Assassins Creed. Smite players can take control of their favorite Gods and learn about new ones.
