Google Play has published its comprehensive list of best games of 2015 that are available in its store. There are 55 games on the list including Candy Crush Soda Saga, Forge of Empires, Angry Birds 2 and agar.io. It is no surprise to see Hearthstone among them, and with a high rating. The breakdown of user votes however follows a different pattern to other games of similar rating.


Hearthstone has an average user rating of 4.3 (4.34 to be more precise) which is up there with the highest rated games. However, although most games do have a larger number of 1-star votes compared to 2 and 3 star, Hearthstone scores 1-star 9.9% of the time which is significantly more than most games of similar average.


The breakdown of user ratings at time of writing is as follows:

  • 5: 519,820 (72.9%)
  • 4: 72,486   (10.2%)
  • 3: 31,681   (4.4%)
  • 2: 18,292   (2.6%)
  • 1: 70,318   (9.9%)

A read through the comments reveals that the bad ratings are not in general because of the random elements of the game, or the cost, but mainly about the size of the client. This sentiment has also been echoed in a long Reddit thread over the last couple of days, with iPhone users finding it only takes up 1.4GB of memory but Android users finding it uses over 3GB.


The good news is that with 72.9% of people rating it five stars, it seems that Blizzard are keeping the vast majority of people very happy.

      Jump into Hearthstone's tenth expansion!
      The last expansion of the Year of the Raven is now live in all regions and we have compiled everything you need to know about it!
      Rastakhan's Rumble introduces the new Overkill keyword and two different types of class cards - Spirits (Rare) and Loa (Legendary). As usual, each class will have two Legendaries: a Loa and the class Champion. The whole thematic of the expansion is that each class is a team of their own, so most class cards synergise well with each other. You can find all of the 135 cards revealed in our dedicated expansion hub.

      Upon logging in, you will receive a bunch of free stuff. You will get one of the nine Legendary Loa, as well as two Spirits from the same class. You will also get 6 Rastakhan's Rumble packs for free - and an additional one if you participated in the voting that took place on the official site. These rewards won't be around forever, so grab them during the expansion's launch period!
      The Rumble Run is the single-player adventure mode that accompanies this expansion. It will be released in 9 days from today, on December 13.
      Don't forget to share your best pack openings, as well as some week 1 crazy decks that you like!
