Sort of... with a bit of tower defense thrown in.

Basic format is a 5v5 match against other players. You start on opposite ends of a symmetrical map with a series of barriers between the bases. These barriers are automated defense towers that attack any enemies players or mobs that come near them. From your base, waves of npc mobs (called creeps) spawn and start marching towards the enemy base. They'll meet the opposing creeps somewhere near the middle of the map, or closer to one of the bases depending on how the match is going and how many towers have been destroyed.

Players control one of a 50+ heroes that each have unique abilities but can generally be classed as strength, intel, or agility. This is the part that is like the standard RPG. Your hero gains levels by being nearby when enemy players or creeps are killed. As you level up you gain new abilities. You also have to be aware of what gear to buy for your hero as it all has an impact, much the same way your build order would have an impact on whether you win or lose starcraft or command & conquer type games.

There isn't really a single player campaign or anything. A practice mode yes - but the game is multi-player.

Be aware that there is a learning curve to the game. Controlling your hero, knowing what to get, and knowing wtf is about to happen to you when an enemy shows up - all that takes time and repetition to learn. As a solo player, the game can get frustrating if you end up in a streak of crappy games with bad teams. Having just 1 or 2 people playing with you makes it a ton better, especially once everyone gets to know what they're doing and 2 or 3 people can turn a match.

If you are still reading at this point and want a better introduction/explanation, I suggest watching some of the tutorial videos on Youtube.

It's a nice looking game. Looks like it could really suck your free time pretty good.

What is Dota?
