What is Celtic Heroes?

Celtic Heroes is a MMORPG that is free to play on Android. It features a lot of questing, some multiplayer features, and pretty decent graphics. It’s based around Celtic mythology so many of the quests, story lines, and characters revolve around that premise.

The game play is fairly straightforward. You use the left thumb to move the character and the right thumb to move the screen. It’s admittedly a little clumsy feeling at first but you get used to it pretty quickly. Celtic Heroes takes place in a pretty big world that you can explore and play around at your leisure. It’s actually pretty impressive for a mobile game in terms of size and scope.

In terms of multiplayer, you can communicate with others via in game chat or through a built-in set of actions like waving, jumping, or giving someone a thumbs down. You can also add friends, join clans, and travel in groups to go questing together. There is even a trade system where you can trade equipment and items. There was a huge opportunity here for Google Play Games services that we felt Celtic Heroes missed out on but the multiplayer experience was still solid.

During my playthrough, the quests seemed fairly straight forward. You go places to do things or kill things to earn stuff. There wasn’t all that much imagination in the setting up of quests and the story line is pretty bare bones. It’s pretty clear that the big pull of this game is playing with friends and dueling PvP style. The story line or quests aren’t unpleasant but like many MMORPGs, you just get kinda tired of them after a while.

Better than average but not without issues.

Pros

The graphics are actually fairly decent.
There is a lot of content for a free game.
One of the better multiplayer experiences available.
If you have a mid to high end device, the game should play pretty smoothly.

Cons

If you don't have a mid or high end phone, avoid this game.
If you have a bad internet connection or dislike 'always connected' games, avoid this game.
Could use a better story.
Some bugs have been reported depending on device and internet speeds that may prevent you from downloading or playing the game.

Bottom Line

Overall, this is an above average experience on Android. Of course, your mileage may vary based on what kind of device you own and the speed of your internet connection. It’s free to play so there’s no harm in trying it out. If you’re into MMOs and the game works for you as well as it worked for me then you’ll likely enjoy playing this at least for a little while.
