Too much

Everything revolves around cash. Who spent the most is the strongest.
This game is a scam
by willcasp on 2019/04/24 22:58
You invest time and money, and then a new “upgrade” comes out that nullifies all the time and money you have spent. Check out the reddit threads on this game and company! Stay away. I am a bit shocked that Apple keeps these products in their App Store.
Game is a joke
by SRFire12 on 2019/04/24 21:08
Nothing works. They have updated the game and broke half of it and they do not care. They don’t fix anything but they want everyone to keep buying. I will not buy a thing until these issues are fixed. If they are not, I’ll find a new game to play. Do not download this game it’s a rip off.
Scam
by Mariiissaaaa on 2019/04/24 20:28
They offer packs for you to purchase. Next day they release something new which completely devalues what you purchased the day before. Customer service doesn’t help at all either.
Sad way to handle business
by KrackerJackKat on 2019/04/24 17:06
The developers of this game have no respect for the people who pay to play this game. You can spend money to get ahead in the game but within weeks those items are free to non players. The developers take away abilities and change statistics on a regular basis. When contacting developers about missing items or stats, you receive a standard form letter, but nothing is returned or changed. The prizes obtained during play are completely outdated for the age of the realm. This game is a lawsuit waiting to happen. It had potential, but it needed someone more than a child as a developer to manage the business.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD
by Alisgravenil on 2019/04/24 16:55
This game is a rip off. Do not get sucked in (because you will). They gave select players a free pack with massive content and have done nothing to fix it. But honestly at this point there is no fixing what has been done. Any money spent in the game was a waste. Even if they give to everyone it will be like starting at the beginning and any paid content for an advantage is gone.
Don’t Fall Into the MZ/Epic Trap
by MommaSmarg on 2019/04/24 16:09
Never again will I ever play a game released by this company. While there are some great aspects to this game (great people you get to know being top of the list), the negatives just outweigh all the good. My guildmates and I have decided to move our entire guild to another game by another developer because we like each other but have lost all interest in playing this game. The devs have set you up for failure if you are not independently wealthy. I know many people who have spent thousands (yes thousands) of dollars on game packs only to have their empires still fall behind when the devs pull an “oops” and release unlimited resources to a few select players and not to the general player population. Today a select few players received so many free items (yep free. No request for said items. No pack purchased.) they were able to skyrocket their power and become completely unstoppable, creating the biggest gameplay disadvantage I have ever seen. The devs refuse to respond to most messages and give canned auto responses 90% of the time they do bother to respond. The few who did receive a response to today’s latest incident were basically told. “Whoopsie! Didn’t mean to send out all that stuff. Sorry but not really going to do anything to make it better.” If you have unlimited resources to invest (both time & money) then this is the game for you. If not, look elsewhere. This game is a class action lawsuit waiting to happen.
If I could give them less than 1 star I would
by SnowyDear on 2019/04/24 15:59
I have been playing this game for over one year now. And until recently I have enjoyed it. However, recent developments have turned me off of this game, and I am not alone. The developers of Final Fantasy XV, in the last 24 hours have made it impossible to play this game. A select few were given a huge advantage by the developers. This advantage has all but destroyed the balance in the game and many players are quitting. Save your time and money. Do not bother downloading this game. It will be a huge disappointment
Waste of time and money!
by Kareyann on 2019/04/24 14:34
It's a fun game to waste time. After investing hundreds of dollars in this game to buy upgrade pack. The game was reset last week to include a dark world which after working hard to progress and get a maximum citadel level my account is now useless.
Horrible CS , pay to win , pay to keep up.
by Billy TCAM driver on 2019/04/24 08:25
You will quickly realize that if you don’t get an in app purchase you will be destroyed every day. You make some friends and buy the $4.99 pack turns out your still getting destroyed. You get the $19.99 pack still not strong enough. If your lucky you quit at this point. If your hooked and get the $99.99 pack you’ll find it was misleading, and you need another one to achieve anything. CS will reply with a script. You will need one of these packs weekly to be anything more than fodder. Then they will release things constantly that will obsolete your entire investment. When these releases come out 3 or more packs will be needed to compete($300) This is a cycle that never ends. Then just recently they reset the entire game . Every $ spent was for nothing . Quit or start over ? They don’t care.
Not worth the $$$
by NotSatisfied2019 on 2019/04/24 04:23
I’ve spent over $5k on this game and every time I think I’m making gains the devs move the goalpost and only more $$$ gets you ahead... unless you have $10k to $20k to throw away... It’s your call...
Worst Game EVER!!!
by BoomBoom831 on 2019/04/24 03:31
Don’t even think of starting!!! Any money you put in to this game will be a waste!!! They will scam you with deceptive advertising!!! If you think you bought that amazing pack you are wrong!!! They will just take back that great item and say it was a typo and they didn’t really mean to have that much inside the pack!!! 😂😂😂 if you think they will refund your money guess again... they don’t EVER give you back!!! And the final draw is when they reset the game and say they want to rebalance the game... all that money you put in and all the work you out into your account just went poof!!! This is the same Method of Scam they did with GoW and MS!!! Don’t ever play any games made by this Developer!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
Worst scam game over
by BUD L0VE on 2019/04/24 01:36
This game is a scam people spent thousands of dollars on this game and they reset the game and make you have to buy there new dark troops and everything you spent money on before is useless now cause they over powered these new troops this in the most wasted money on game and scam the developers are evil gold digging people
oof it’s a pay to play
by Koji.ren on 2019/04/24 01:13
If you want to grow, you have to pay. This could be a great game but it $100.00 for each pack.🤦🏼‍♀️
Game updates and changes
by So Icy Icyss on 2019/04/23 22:23
Honestly I’ve been playing for about 2 years now and every thing has changed. Spend money to be stronger and it makes more stronger troops that no one can build or figure out how to build. And now all the money you did spend to be great is now. A waste because even a level 99 is weak
Dark world
by muertos187 on 2019/04/23 17:19
They just did an update and all players are at same level. The customer service is very very bad. The game is only good if you don’t spend money on it.
Game was great. Now the developers have ruined it.
by TheCHAMPizHERE on 2019/04/23 06:43
The developers of the game are modern morons. They have created a great game I’ll give them that. But they’re marketing schemes and support team is filled with people who don’t give a care in the world for the players that foot there bills. This is a pay to play game. Don’t be fooled and think you can skate by without spending. You can’t. To be competitive you have to spend consistently and constantly. As a player I’m ok with that. What I’m not ok with is the money grab we just experienced in the game. The developers sped up and gave us tons of content at a high cost and we all bought into it. Every day every week every month whatever it was we bought it. Now this game is just another version of game of war. Just a different skin. MZ is the company behind the game. After we bought all this content the developers took all our money and threw it in the garbage by doing a complete game reset. They basically created troops that you must buy to survive and made none of our current boosts applicable to the new troops. This is the kind of bs that we players have to deal with. In many other similar games the developers don’t engage in this kind of thievery. Only MZ is known to do this. They did in GOW and now FFXV. It’s disgusting how they rushed out material and then made that same material worthless in less than a couple short months. My advise to you is DO NOT PLAY this game. Find something else to sink your teeth into. This game is nothing but an endless money grab And the developers are full blown idiots. They don’t hold themselves accountable or even think about the players at all. We are just dollar signs to them. Now if you look at some of these reviews we as players truly believe the developers have people that bury negative reviews with positive ones because every server is mostly dead due to the fact they screw us over so much. So please pick another game. These developers are worthless and will stop at nothing to get the last dollar out of your wallet. -theCHAMPizHERE
Rip off
by Dr Lecter73 on 2019/04/23 02:06
This game used to be fun. Expensive to play but that is part of this type of game. This company has made millions off of the people and because they couldn’t fix a balancing issue, they have basically reset the game. Which means that all the money that people have spent, myself included, has been a waste. My empire is useless. Everything I have purchased to build my empire is useless. Troops, monsters etc. useless. Not good business practice to take advantage of loyal customers, who have spent the money they have worked hard to earn, on your game. I don’t recommend this game to anyone.
Not one more penny
by Wiinniii on 2019/04/22 10:02
Do not play this game unless money is no object. The developers have gotten many people in and spent some money. Every week is a new gimmick. Game is now only pay to play. I refuse to put one more cent in!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bait and switch
by Harps465 on 2019/04/22 07:47
If you’re going to play this game be warned. You need to make purchases often to be competitive. If you’re looking at being a top dog it’s going to cost you in excess of $10,000. Not a joke or exaggeration but with that being said it is a complete bait and switch in my opinion. Been playing for over a year and finally got competitive and they just started a new game over the old one. All the time spent can now be done with one purchase and everything done before January 2019 is now useless. This change is horrible and most of the players are quitting the game because of it.
Wishing I could get back my last 10 months
by Bball4586 on 2019/04/22 03:55
So I’ve been playing this game for about 10 months. I’m currently a citadel level 72. So obviously I spend. Yes, this is a pay to play game. So if you wanna stay competitive, get ready to spend. $100 a pack. The spending I was ok with. I set a budget. And no I was never the strongest in my realm, but I was up there. And being in the top guild, made it more fun. The people I’ve met and friendships made has made the money worth it. Because honestly, it can be fun. This issue I have and the reason I gave this game 1 star is about 1 week ago they opened up levels 71-80. Until that time we had been capped at cit70. Well a few days later they offered an “instant pack” to only a select few. (I didn’t get the offer to buy that pack as did many others) This pack shot people to c80 with all research done. All heroes unlocked and leveled to 200 (even tho the levels were only unlocked to 150 for everyone else), all legendary gear, top gems for gear, and god knows what else. And all of a sudden, I go from being a top 10 player to not even in the top 20. And people who don’t even come close to spending what I spent have 10 bil more power than me with one $50 pack. It’s a slap in the face. And customer support does nothing to help but send you generic copy and pasted replies to your mails. I never got the offer for that pack. The game offers you different stuff than others. There’s no fair play if you can get the same stuff others are offered. The only reason I am still playing the game is because of the friendships I’ve made. But I’m close to hitting the delete button. The devs screwed me out of a ton of money and if I could I would demand a refund. But.. I’m convinced the game support line is an automated response system. And MZ just cares about money.

Game is fun until you start it and have to spend tons of money to even get past lvl 10 citadel Also. It takes forever to get on the game now. I have to turn it off and restart 15 to 16 times just to get on the stupid thing. What a waste of time and money
Very bad customer support and packs

Not good at all, need to update customer support and packs

Censorship and Unfair Business Practices
by jwklin on 2019/04/20 23:35
Do not download this game. Like many games like this it is free to download but to be effective in the game you need to pay. That is not why I gave it 1 star though. Play to win isn’t on heard of. I knew what I was getting into. I gave it 1 star because of the way they design the pay to win and because they censor the players chats. The game has gotten so greedy and aggressive with new features and items that you have to buy that you can be a top 10 player in your realm after spending a ton of money and time but the next day a new item can come out and you’ll be weak. It creates a system where you have to spend $100 a week to stay relevant. As players began to protest this behavior we noticed that posts that say “censorship” or “protest” for example will not go through. You have to put an extra space somewhere between the word. Furthermore the packs are designed to be misleading. An example of this would be selling a boost “x2” but the boost only applying once because they can’t be doubled. This developer is shady. Do not support them.
The developers are greedy
by TheGrimReaps on 2019/04/20 23:28
So I've been playing for almost a year and although it can be expensive to play at times...at time I spent to get stuff. Just recently...they released a pack offer that allowed people to get to my level in an instant...without having to do the work or put in the time. It was an absolute slap in the face for everyone who has been in the game for a while. They get more and more greedy ever week it seems. Don't waste your time with downloading this game. If you can't devote 8 hours per day to playing you'll never get anywhere.

Content was satisfactory...was
by Lump of FSF on 2019/04/20 22:34
The game is enjoyable and the community can make the game great, but this company has absolutely awful customer service and consistently sends copy/paste responses to any contact. The entire interaction with customer service is about as productive as playing the song that never ends...its always just the same ok song and dance with them. Lately customer service and sales seem to have ignited the passion behind players that put this game upon a platform, and by igniting passion it’s for all the wrong reasons. The questionable item sales, without consistent quality content rollout has the ability to make the game stale. When the game has been contacted...customer service copy and pasted the same response but hey! They appreciate their customers because they wrote it in their emails.

Scam
by mhah03 on 2019/04/20 17:47
$100 for every pack til citadel 70 then they offer certain players one $100 pack and they can go from a citadel 50 to citadel 80. Total scam and a waste of time and money.DO MZ CARE ABOUT LOYAL PLAYERS NO Because they offer instant gratification packs to a limited few which give those players instant upgrades to everything the rest of us have worked for and paid for, Not only that, these packs give a lucky few instant access to high level heroes and items that are capped or not even available for all other players in the game! So those who were top in leaderboard are now over shadowed by players with billions in power. Is this fair? NO. Is this good customer service? NO Is the rote response from their Customer service team helpful? NO Do they care? NO MZ management, look at your complaints go up, while your sales go down as frustrated players boycott until you resolve this. It’s not a hard ask, just make the instant gratification pack available to all. After all your rote email responses say ‘we value your relationship with us’. SO NOW PROVE IT!
Absolute scam
by Dimkaetgd on 2019/04/20 17:08
I have been playing over a year. If you ready that the developers make your money spent in 0 value next day go for it. Learned my lesson hard way and quit. You will not have fun without spending. Spending will give you fun for a few days and soon they give away for free what you bought. Enjoy
Problem
by litcat59 on 2019/04/20 15:30
Fix: build speed can be researched at level 8 academy (or whatever) but requires 3 level six upgrades. Those upgrades require academy level 10 to even get to the 5th upgrade of them plz lower so I can properly research the build speed upgrade. Thanks!
Game is bs
by jfj jdkxksic on 2019/04/20 15:25
You don’t get rewarded from the events. I win third place and was entitled to a bunch of awards, gear, chests and 15,000 gold. None of which I got for slaying an event out of hundreds of thousands of players. Plus it kills your battery really fast on your phone whether you’re playing the game or not. I am deleting the game!
It doesn’t cater to people with big pockets
by Killer cjb on 2019/04/20 10:16
Hey you can spend like a couple hundred dollars and they will sell something amazing to someone who has very little later in the game so that you even if you don’t have money and someone else who spend thousands or millions you can beat. I would spend no more than 500 hundred dollars a year on this game if you want to spend that.
Pay to play and vast difference in rewards for same work
by Grimnr lil odin on 2019/04/19 19:44
The game play is wonderful but customer service is abysmal. It takes a week or so to receive responses for issues and when they do respond it’s a copy and paste message saying they received your complaint yet will do absolutely nothing to fix it or compensate you for the issue. However the game is definitely geared to the pay tons to play gamers. For the free to play people, be aware that there are vast differences in the rewards for doing quests. The customer support people will try to tell you it’s because the events are bracketed. None of them seem capable of comprehending that the reward differences are amongst people within the same tier brackets. For example, a guildmate and I do the same event. Both require the same amount of work to achieve the same tier 3 rewards. His tier 3 rewards were 14000 hero medals. Mine was 300 hero medals. CUSTOMER SUPPORT SENDS COPY AND PASTE MESSAGES KINDLY TELLING YOU THEY DONT CARE AND WILL NOT ADJUST THE REWARDS RECEIVED TO BE EQUAL. this is done in order to be “fair”. How does that make sense? we did the same amount of work taking about three hours and to achieve the same amount of points to receive vast differences in rewards. How apple allows this game to continue these practices is beyond me.
Fun Game, but Hard to Progress
by GabzyLizard on 2019/04/19 15:50
This game has wonderful graphics, a fun concept, and enjoyable empire building. However, attacks from other players are very frequent and can destroy just about everything you’ve built up. There is no barrier between new players and people who’ve had the game for months/years and likely spent a lot of money to get extra power. If there weren’t raids, I would love it. Unfortunately there is no option to be a peaceful empire. I know a lot of people like the warring concept, but again, it’s hard when all your attackers are so high up in level. Even when my defenses were maxed out (which could take days to achieve) I would get attacked and all my soldiers were killed. And then somehow my hero got captured while I was harmlessly collecting food from a resource tile! I thought heroes could only be captured when you were the one doing the raiding on another empire, but that was wrong. At that point I deleted the game, it just wasn’t fun anymore.
Glitchy software that developers won’t address.
by Capt. Harris on 2019/04/19 08:18
We had a “Realm Boss” event that had prizes and a title of “Monster Hunter Gold Medalist” that came with several great bonuses. Many players competed and many players paid real money for in-game items to help them win the title and prizes. At the end of the event no prizes or titles were issued. Many players including myself opened trouble tickets (12482619). The developers refuse to acknowledge any problems, and will not fix many known issues with its glitchy software. Total refusal to admit any problems so that they can close all trouble tickets without fixing a thing. Very sad, many good people playing this game and no support from the developers making all the money. They just collect the money and laugh at the players who spend hard earned dollars on their glitch filled app.
Support is pathetic
by Doooonnnne on 2019/04/17 23:48
Tons of glitches, false advertising with their sales packs, game regularly crashes and chat messages go undelivered on a regular basis. And did I mention that support is pathetic. When issues occur and support is contacted players are treated completely different. Some receive assistance and others don’t. Very frustrating when an error in the game costs you money and they refuse to assist you, when your guild mates have encountered identical situation and have been fully compensated.
Stay Away
by Cbkr1047 on 2019/04/17 18:31
This game can be fun for a short amount of time, but you either have to spend money to stay competitive or be eliminated and quit by those that do spend money. Their service support is the absolute worst. Please stay away at all costs.
Don’t waste your time
by inta_TOG on 2019/04/17 14:31
This game is an absolute waste of time. Unless you are constantly buying packs, you will never get far. In the “Wealthy World” Realm, if you’re not in DLY or VH8 guilds you are a constant target. In the beginning you’re offered a $5 pack to get you going. If you buy the $20 pack, you’ll never see a pack under $50 again. The packs are absolute trash too! For a $99 they offer a person who’s played for months they’ll offer a new player almost the exact same thing for $5. They also do not offer all of the same packs to people giving select players HUGE boosts and it utterly throws off any type of fair playing field. If you have a dedicated CC to this game with a $100k spending limit you’ll keep up but if you’re free to play or even spend a few bucks here or there, and not in one of the guilds mentioned above, you’ll just be their farm. The games plus side is meeting a lot of nice ppl but for the time and energy put into it, it’s really just not worth it.
This Game was so great
by King of Boom on 2019/04/16 14:49
They completely ruined it by putting out new pay to play updates every three days. Like all of these games to be at the top you have to pay which most people who play these games already know. For a long while there were updates maybe once a month a new merc maybe some new gear but the devs have become greedy. Most of the people have stepped away from the game because it’s just too much too fast. In January they came out with new gear which was just a weapon the destiny sword. A lot of the big players spent between 800-1200 to get this weapon and level it up. A couple weeks later they started dropping the other pieces the helmet boots and so on. People wound up spending a ton of cash on all this gear especially when primal version of it came out and to upgrade the gear set. After people have blown through thousands getting this gear leveled they turn around and drop gear sets that make the gear irrelevant for the low price of 200. With the purchase of two packs my stats went from 4 mil attack to 26 mil. This was just a slap in the face and even the biggest whales started to quit the game. Not to mention the constant hero level upgrading realm boss and moogle multipliers which are only good for a week or so new buildings new research new asteral levels new oracle boosts.... the list keeps going. To put it simply there are plenty of 100k accounts in this game that are sitting empty and are completely useless. The devs are predatory and have no desire to have your account hold any value. Like I said there are 100k accounts that I wouldn’t buy for 100 dollars. It’s sad because I have made a lot of friends playing this game and the community is great but I can not waste anymore money on this game it’s a black hole for my bank account and it will be for you too.

Don’t bother
by Playermama1 on 2019/04/15 23:08
Keep playing console Final Fantasy. Developers are horrible. The customer service is disgusting. They won’t fix anything they are clearly in wrong for. Will switch packs up on you and not give you items you paid for. Don’t waste your time or money with it. Not worth the investment.
All they want to do is sell stuff
by memgal on 2019/04/14 19:27
This could have been such a great game..everything and I mean everything has been monetized...you will have to fork over BIG dollars to play. Starts at 4.99 ..not bad but then goes tom49.99 and them 99.99 US..all new features have to be bought or you will just be food for bigger players. Developers dont work on content..just new items buildings and features to sell..the original games were outstanding..this...well. You’ve been warned
Better have deep pockets
by 1736372728 on 2019/04/14 14:33
The game is fun, and when you start out they give you a few items to help you out. The game revolves around upgrading your empire and in order to protect it and become powerful you will need to spend real money. The first few pay upgrades are reasonable I think the first is $30 and the second is around $50, but after that everything else you purchase is $100. You can maybe make it to level 25-30 without a purchase but you will need to find a good guild that has members with deep pockets. There are constantly people quitting the game who have spent upwards of $3000 from my guild because they just get slaughtered by people with unlimited cash flow. You can protect your empire with bubbles but the game only gives you a small amount, the rest come from purchasing upgrades or competing in events, but you need to be powerful to compete in most of them. The first thing that happens whenever you open the game before you can do anything is a screen with “special offers” all at the low price of $100. This game could be fun, and most people stick around for the guild chats, but the developers are so ridiculously greedy that all they want you to do is hit the pay button and you need to pay if you want to stand your ground.
Playing for 12 months now
by BigDCuz on 2019/04/14 13:47
The game itself is fun, the detail is amazing and the app itself runs semi smoothly depending on what’s going on. The main reason for 1 star is because of the greed of the developer. The terrible customer service, and the overall lack of care from the developer itself. If something goes wrong/glitches don’t even bother to contact them, they will give you a canned response with no actual answer to your question. Even if things relevant to the game they give poor answers on. The game is fun if you get friends in it and can depend on them to help you grow, the defense/offense is a fun portion to learn, and the gear can really change the game, with all that being said, it costs a lot of money to stay current/keep up with the rest of the realm you’re in. Every realm has mega spenders and unless you have “30k is petty cash to me” mentality, it will certainly be painful to grow. In general this game is okay, it could be better, with a better support platform and a “let’s stop being so greedy” attitude would be nice. Other games don’t expect you to max out a credit card or spend your savings, this one does. Btw nothing advertised in the pictures actually happen on the game.
This game is garbage and a giant scam. Beware
by oRoBoTo on 2019/04/13 14:03
Watch out for this one. First of all it will cost you hundreds to thousands to play and receive any enjoyment out of it. This is a blatant rip of of another crap app named empires. Basically they just too the game and re skinned it with final fantasy esque graphics and names. The devs don’t give a crap about screwing you and your game over for anyway they can squeeze out another 100 bucks. If you contact support they usually will only send you a non canned response if you make their spending requirement for their “Platinum service and support” To acquire this you must spend a bunch of money weekly. Thousands. Their loot boxes and percentages in the game are never correct. When questioned you will be told that “The math used in the game is very advanced and you might not understand the end results.” That heavily includes the things you bought not giving the stats you payed for. But wait there’s more! After playing for two years they’ll just release a pack for $49.00 to catch people up to the level you spent so much for. Devaluing all your work and money. Just trying to get you and other to plow twice as much in because the game is slowly dying. Also look at the positive reviews that don’t make any sense. This is definitely the developer trying to out rate their negative reviews.
Awful game

These people are the greediest if the greedy. I’d spit speaking their name, but This cottonmouth won’t let me. Epically the worst direction a seasoned brand could ever take: Straight down.
So glitchy
by Jason Allen Edwards on 2019/04/11 00:31
It says I need to update it but it has no options (fix your game then I'll play again)
Single worst game I have ever played
by corbo46 on 2019/04/10 13:04
I have played a few of these “build your empire games” and there are ones that I was playing 4 years ago that looked and played 1000 times better than this one.
HUGE SCAM
by VegasBoi011 on 2019/04/09 13:41
This game is a huge scam PLEASE BE AWARE !!!! Developers throwing events that are impossible to finish without buying packs ($99.99). Once you buy items needed for your empire to grow,next day they will release new items that will make your purchase worthless, so in order to attack or defend yourself you need to buy more packs!! Costumer service is simply HORRIBLE!!!! Automated answers from bots, it takes days and days to hear respond and issues are NEVER resolved! DO NOT FOOL YOURSELF to even try this game! It’s a huge scam that will only ask for your money!!!

This is nothing but fraud. Do not waste your time or money. All of their content be removed from app store and never allowed back.
Pay to win extreme
by Ssf720 on 2019/04/07 17:52
So I have been playing this game for a while and I realized that they purposely make cash cows spend a bunch so that they can strike down others and bully them. This game is entirely a pay to win and I have spent of $300 in hopes to catch up, but I just couldn’t. This game I recommend u stay away from if you want to keep your wallet and not waste a bunch of time Frustrated Player MeltedCookie
Worst game ever
by ann0yed12 on 2019/04/07 17:17
1 star in honor of all the people playing free-to-play app games that are forced to sit through your horrible ads on every game.
Deceitful
by Skettiboy on 2019/04/07 15:25
Not clear with explanation on some purchases. I bought a pack unaware that a boost would not stack and it was not mentioned in description. Contacted team member for assistance with no reimbursement in game or otherwise. Keep in mind I am paying for fake game gold.
So, so, so, so bad, I can’t believe it!!!
by dhxejx on 2019/04/07 01:47
This game is so bad and it keep ask for money, this is a pice of garbage, I don’t even want to gave one star!!!
Fun but time consuming
by Nono1253 on 2019/04/06 19:57
Fun game but more time consuming than it seems at first look. You’ll enjoy it if you like base builder games.
Not worth it
by kismoody on 2019/04/06 16:01
I love the people I’ve met in this game but the customer service leaves much to be desired. They never listen to their players on things that need changed. They claim it’s free but to keep up many expensive packs will be required or lots of protection barriers while you wait for the items to be devalued enough to be free. Don’t waste your money. Go play one of the cheaper versions of this game.
Just a money grab
by Xryceas on 2019/04/06 14:04
It’s awesome at first because of all the people and family you meet and make but then the developers just make it so that you can’t survive without spending a couple thousand a month just to survive.
Fun if P2W or expected to be bullied.
by Msdio on 2019/04/05 02:17
Lots of things to build and grow on. Addictive since you can really see results from growth, even though growth can take hours, and days at a time. This game encourages spending and bullying other players. There is pop-up ad for game packages every time you open the game. 1) Paying unlocks capabilities that are unmatched, in addition to resources. While the game tilts in favor of defense, due to limit on march size, one needs literally millions of troops to defend. And building aN army of millions take quite a bit of resources and time. Upper tier can kill lower tier easily, but doesn’t win if significantly outnumbered. If bullies are squatting near you, you basically can stop gathering or hunting for good. 2) Resource capacities are limited, yet research and building demand much more (>4x of capacities). One can’t grow resources beyond capacities. So other than paying, one would then have to a) have guild members supply resources, b) create farms (multiple accounts) to supply, or c) raid others regularly, in order to keep growing. If you don’t want to get raided regularly when you first start building, and don’t want to pay much, the way to deter (not prevent) is to join an aggressive strong guild, since the guild would regularly raid others for fun or resources. This game encourages players, unless they pay up, to raid and bully others on a regular basis to keep growing. If you are reading to see if you want to start, I’d recommend you first get a proper expectation of how much you are ok to spend ($5, $20, $100, $1000, etc.; packages start with $5 and $20 for the first 2, then stay at $50, $100 a pop), and how ok you will feel after getting raided, perhaps regularly. Otherwise, you will be upset, and disappointed. Think about what you may get for $500. It can empower you to be somewhat competitive in the game (you will still be harassed from time to time). It can also be your monthly grocery, rent, card debt, loan or car payment, iPhone, Apple Watch, PS4 Pro + games, Xbox One, gym membership for the year, or gas money. Which would you rather have?
Scam
by cannaliving on 2019/04/04 12:30
I purchased an instant 80 all building pack. Developers falsely advertised game packages that did not contain what was promised. I’m filing a complaint and suit. Even with a receipt and proof of purchase including SCREENSHOTS! Be ware they are liars and thieves. The staff that works there do not speak English and cannot help you
Nice
by MoodyJeex on 2019/04/04 00:11
Real good game I like it
Don’t waste your time
by moose5780 on 2019/04/03 01:27
Pure pay to play. Event are rigged and don’t give honest prizes. App doesn’t offer fairly priced packs once you purchase one, price keeps going up and doesn’t offer you anything else. Someone spending 5$ can get the same pack as someone spending 100$ as long as you never spend top dollar. Don’t waste your time I’m sure there are plenty of games out there more worth your time and money. This is the exact same game, as the game of war that was around a few years ago. This game wants money for absolutely everything thing, YOU CANNOT COMPETE IF YoU DO NOT SPEND THOUSANDS!!!!! BEWARE!!!!!!!!
Game is an enormous money sink, crashes all the time.
by Lowfyr Darkpaws on 2019/04/02 18:29
This game is consummate pay to win. The only way to win is not to play.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD GAME FOR A REWARD
by ReturnOfRamfan on 2019/04/02 12:11
I downloaded this game to receive a reward in another game. Had to make a purchase to complete offer. Never got reward and Apple won’t refund purchase because they are fine with you being defrauded. Choose at your own risk
Nothing has changed
by Gidva04 on 2019/04/01 13:57
First I'll say this really is a great game if you enjoy meeting people from different walks of life. However, the game fosters a pay to play environment. If you have a bottomless credit card then you'll be at the top of the heap, many of whom terrorize those with limited funds because they can afford to do so. The rest either stay because they're in a guild that they enjoy or they leave due to total frustration of having to rebuild their empires after the bully attacks. The in app purchases discription below is very misleading. The only time a pack is $1.99 is when you make your first purchase. After that, the price goes up til it bottoms out $99.99/tax per pack! I'm sure this isn't gonna change since the money bags players keep buying those $100 packs, making this a multi billion dollar cash cow for the developers. So just be warned, if you're rich then you're golden but if not....well.....good luck!
Went downhill
by ImaSpiderTara on 2019/03/31 23:30
When this game started out it was so much fun, now even on iOS 12 the game takes forever to load images once logged in. The gameplay is not there and clearly most of the of guilds have disbanded and moved on. World chat is dead too. Please update this game to where it actually runs. It’s not fun anymore which is a shame because I made many friends here and now they moved on.

Too much to keep paying
by Shamaka on 2019/03/29 02:38
To continue to play this game they want you to pay your rent but can’t really advance and won’t even give you the exact items you purchase and yes I provided screenshots to Bubba on of the people that answers why didn’t I get what I paid for and takes more than 5 days to reply and only answers during the midnight hours don’t get addicted to this game you’ll lose your shirt just trying to level up
Predatory

This game is predatory and feeds on addictions. Stay away from it or you may find yourself bankrupt.
Inflation
by Sosolow on 2019/03/28 20:40
The game was good until the huge increases in attack power trying to cater to all the big spenders in game if you don’t plan on spending thousands of dollars to keep up don’t waste your time. They have totally cut out the casual players but only after they gave people fails hopes that gave any chance of defending 100 million troops from 1 million of someone willing to spend thousands no skill or strategy involved in this game anymore Best wishes to all that fall to there greed and unfair numbers
0% FF, 100% begging for money. Not fun!
by 5toneMan on 2019/03/28 19:16
I tried it. I gave it a shot. I spent $30 trying to enjoy this game and they NEVER give you anything for your money. And it’s not fun and if you loved the Final Fantasy series like I do you’ll wonder when we’ll around to seeing anything related to Final Fantasy. This is awful garbage created by people who never played Final Fantasy. Worse than one star
Not the game I was advertised
by Mrglfrgl on 2019/03/28 18:25
Why do games advertise as something completely different? Their advertisement set the expectation of a tower defense game. If you’re going to put a game out there, why not advertise it for what it really is?
Pay to glitch
by Sab1Bow on 2019/03/28 13:50
I have been playing this game a while, if you find a good guild you can enjoy the team. However, you WILL need to spend a few hundred dollars to even successfully attack bot tiles and that’s with doing hourly tasks. Forget attacking lower empires, their higher guild mates will level you in seconds. My guild mates and I have spent hundreds each and when the game glitches, customer service used to respond and help but now we’re now told from people like Leila “basic troubleshooting steps were not able to fix the issues you are having” and that it must be an error on your device. It’s probably old, the iOS not updated, memory or even an app update. After proving all these are not an issue, it then becomes a “delay on your device” They refuse to fix game glitches or compensate you in anyway.
Absolute Scam
by Briar511 on 2019/03/27 03:02
ETA: I’ve seen mention of VIP levels that will become available “soon” beyond the ten currently available. I still feel scammed since these only exist on one server, it seems, and the official site only lists the ten VIP I’m at now. Don’t advertise a pack on servers that can’t use it, that’s just bad business. I have no problem dropping some cash on a cell phone game I enjoy, so when I first saw the reviews about this costing money to play I shrugged it off. However, the first packs I bought were designed to let me bring up my VIP level quickly, as I wanted the perks. Max VIP level costs 2,000,000 points, it turns out. After buying that pack I have 88 items worth 1,000,000 VIP points each sitting in my inventory that I can’t use even to unlock VIP time because using two of them put me at max VIP level. They’ll sell you a pack that looks like a good deal but is garbage because you don’t need anywhere near all the items before you reach max and then there’s nothing you can do with them anymore. I made it to a citadel level 12 before I started getting hit by the bullies that have power levels in the millions compared to my 60k at the time. No wonder there are so many seeming abandoned low level structures. This game is a joke. I spent $60 on it and I’m strongly considering trying a charge back through PayPal since they sold me a bunch of items I actually can’t even use in obvious false advertisement that I needed all this to max out VIP.
Devs like to cheat
by Espresso96 on 2019/03/26 21:38
This game started off great until our realms first boss came around. After that event, random people were given millions of gold, including those who did not participate in said event, while those of us who did participate were screwed out of it, leaving us very far behind. The devs completely ignored two tickets I opened up in an attempt to contact them and were rude all the way through. It doesn’t matter if you’re pay to win, you won’t unless you’re favored by the devs. Don’t give this game any money!
Pay for play scam, obviously rigged
by CodeMonkey6981 on 2019/03/26 16:19
What a joke? I was starting to like this game, but everything has a ridiculous cost for everything. If you can’t pay to get more powerful, then you loose. They obviously employ people to build large guilds like “emperors of hell” and so forth to terrorize those without funds just so they will spend more money just to survive an attack or maybe win (not). Its bull. Not worth spending any more on this game. What crooks! I can see loosing a battle with small loss of spoils, but not in this game. You are screwed unless you spend money. Not fun at all. You just lost my business. 🖕🖕
Do NOT Spend money on this game!
by MikeyUchiha on 2019/03/26 16:16
I unfortunately made the investment of spending over $10,000 on this game to stay ahead and then they capped the level at 60. And people are able to catch up by spending about $400-$500 because they capped the level and on top of that they dramatically increase the drop rates of materials during events. Please don’t make the same mistake that I did.

Awesome potential with deplorable support and glitches
by Famfrenzy on 2019/03/26 07:40
This game originally has a great social and mobile war gaming aspect where guilds and individuals can work together and bond across countries throughout the world. Unfortunately, the many glitches in rewards; inaccurate descriptions of events and associated titles; extremely poor deployment order compared to older realms/servers; and frustrating, dispassionate, inept and condescending support personnel, causes too many people to quit and others to slowly taper off until they eventually seldom play. So many have invested great amounts of time, and most more money than others can imagine spending on a mobile game, that it is demoralizing to then be faced with those challenges listed above that could so easily be fixed and handled differently. As a guild leader in the game, it is unfortunate and frustrating to lose friends to these issues, and to experience the same decline myself. Many other reviews list the issues about the costs of the pay to play game, but while that is definitely an issue, being in the game having accepted that piece and competitively played for so long within it, just to be months and many $$ later constantly faced with glitches, support personnel issues, and deployments ordered in a way to make the game unplayable (due to it being too weighted for defense, and previously offense, to the point there is no war and RvRs are non-competitive), is infuriating. This game had such a potential to be fun, competitive, and rewarding for so many people. It’s unfortunate it has bombed after so many months of accepting the initial troubles and expenses, just to see it get so bad people cut losses, including $1000s, and lose a forum for friendships and competitive play.
Do not get trapped
by Littleleisl on 2019/03/26 07:08
This game teases you with a $4.99 pack. I thought ok that’s reasonable but next pack is $19.99 and then ready $99.99 and you really have to spend upwards of $5000. A week and at times just a couple days. Every time you get a building maxed they then decide to make you have to upgrade again now here is an example you’re merc pit could be maxed at 8 but then they make it so you have to upgrade or you can’t use it so you have to buy, and they’ll sell you a $99.99 pack that has 1500 prints to upgrade when it takes 300,000 prints, how many times $99.99 to actually upgrade one level. They do not give you what you pay for and they find a way to squeeze literally at least 10 things a day to make you spend on very rare occasions they offer a $49.99 packs. (I’ve seen 2 only recent) When you get to levels that you need certain things they give you bare minimum I’m level 86 I require “grandiose prints” they don’t offer packs with those prints. I’ve seriously spent in 1 yrs of playing over $15,000 at least. I can no longer afford anything they continue to add on it was level 80 was as high as you could go now it’s 100 every building has to be re maxed. The developers will never refund you and they treat you like garbage. I’m trying to find an entity to go to report them they take your money and don’t even deliver the goods. It is fun in social aspect but trust me if you don’t have the money don’t play the game. It’s become a pay to win game I spend my time in a barrier they used to give us one of those every 2 was or so they no longer give us anything we need. I can’t finish my economics research and sadly apple seems to be allowing this. I’d love to add an article that states in Nov alone they made 2 million real dollars per day. If you have any issues they do not help you at all in fact they actually call you liar etc. Play at your own financial peril and you’ll have to pay out the nose because most players are citadel 80 and you’re not safe even at high levels, it’s a war game
Clunky Pay to win game
by SadPettyOfficer on 2019/03/25 21:07
Too limited, people waste thousands of dollars to get ahead, ads are shoved down your throat every few seconds and every time you open the app, game burns your battery, slow army movement, and you can’t even play the minigames more than once a day.
Trash
by fluorescentbulbasaur on 2019/03/25 12:21
This game is garbage and Square Enix should compensate the true believers who spent money here assuming the FF XV brand meant something to them. Full screen in-app purchase ads (sometimes missing the close button for a few seconds) appear on launch (every single time) and ramp up to $99.99 after two purchases. Those $99.99 packs won’t even get you very far if you choose to spend—you’ll need to buy a couple a week if you wanna keep up.
Pay to win
by 00000000-000000p--0--oo---op-- on 2019/03/24 15:55
This is strictly a pay to win game for people who can spend thousands of dollars on playing. I would suggest you not get this game if you are not ready to spend a lot of money.
Scam
by Dfxfedd on 2019/03/23 16:19
This game is a scam. Packs are 100 dollars. You need like 10,000 dollars just to reach level 30 citadel. The players that wastes the most monry controls the realm. All other guilds will dissapear. Run away before you loose lots and lots of money.
Complete TRASH/GARBAGE
by Poop crap absolute trash b on 2019/03/23 14:34
I can literally see that you didn’t put ANY effort in this game, bad quality, nothing to do with the story. I am no judgements piece of CRAP but this is the worst game I’ve EVER played. SCAM and a WASTE OF TIME. This should be BANNED.
Purchase of Packs
by Jfowler71 on 2019/03/23 14:11
Be careful when purchasing packs. I’m still fighting with the developers and iTunes on a purchase I made within the last 2 weeks . Purchased a $99 pack and was charged for a $99 pack and a $19.99 pack. Received the $99 pack but not the $19.99 pack. Both are saying contact each other. After sending receipt of purchase ( both on same receipt) I’ve been told they are unable to find that purchase. So basically I’m out the $19.99 and the pack I was charged for. If it weren’t for the people that I play with I would have deleted this game.
Most expensive free to play game yet.
by KDramaQueen1 on 2019/03/23 12:54
Like most people I started playing to earn credits for another game that I played more actively. Reaching the required goal took a bit of time and I actually enjoyed building up my empire and became easily hooked. It’s been almost 2 years now and I am still playing but I’m about to retire from the game. It has become a money pit. I don’t mind spending money. I have actually dropped a lot more on this game than I would care to admit 😅 and for the most part have been satisfied with my progress but unfortunately this game and its excessive releases of pay to play content has sucked me dry. This game is no longer a battle of wits and strategy. This game has become a battle of the wallets and credit cards. This has taken all the fun out of the game. If this continues dedicated veteran players like myself will continue to leave the game... UPDATE: a ton of new content was released since I first wrote this review. The greedy developers won’t stop flooding the game with new content available for purchase only. Their constant grab for money is killing the game.
Don’t buy everything overpriced and still loose
by Classytinaa on 2019/03/23 05:25
Game that is just looking for what’s in your wallet, the developers don’t care and take away items you purchase. The only positive thing about the game is that you meet people. Stay far away or play but don’t buy.
Don’t play this
by JamesTaylorBlues on 2019/03/22 23:08
Addicting and fun at first but you need money to play and you can never pay enough. This game constantly asks for money and you will reach a point when you can’t progress without spending money. Once that happens you either get crushed everyday and have to rebuild or give in and start paying. The bundles first start at $5 (one time only) then $20 for your second time then $100 for the 3rd purchased and will never go back down below $100
RUNAWAY!!! Stop reading and run!!!!
by Strong24 on 2019/03/22 22:37
This game is great. And I mean great. When it first came out. And you could buy a pack or two here and there and stay competitive and relevant. Now they add in new stuff every single day. Not to mention if you do buy something they might say to hell with it and take away what you purchased. With zero recourse on them. Why should they care when they have that fortnite money. Here’s what I suggest. Play any other game that isn’t owned by mz or epic action.
Pay to play
by Cattlieysmommy on 2019/03/22 20:42
This is a pay to play game. The defense to offense ratio is very uneven and is just getting worse by the day. DON’T EVEN BOTHER PLAYING
Not paying to play... packs prices are consistently changing
by Baby1on1 on 2019/03/22 17:39
Was fun at first then the packs started ranging higher. No variety of different prices packs. When you get prompto hero you can’t us him if the hero is captured or banished so there is no point in having him. Don’t waste your time on the game
The game is awful
by playstrongplayhappy on 2019/03/22 15:46
The game used to be fun and competitive. Unfortunately the greed of Epic to squeeze very little dime out of players has made the game a waste of time. It is 100% pay to win. It is Not a strategy game, it is not a roll playing game it is a spend money to beat other players type game. Would not recommend to my worst enemy to get and play this game!
Money
by QUEENBEEBOOKER1 on 2019/03/21 16:24
My husband spends 400 to 700 a month on game every month. Well last week purchased 1 game pack and they charged him for two game packs and only got 1 and refused to give money back for one of them.
Worst money pit
by Pink723 on 2019/03/21 16:00
Free to download, continuous PAY to keep up. Worst SCAM game. Costs thousands to become functional, most spend thousands WEEKLY to stay relevant. New content is released daily now, no one can keep up. Power players are ripped off by buying packs that are bait and switch scams then quitting the game and selling their accounts. Multiple lawsuits filed in my own realm, I’m sure it’s happening on a multi realm level. Identical in gameplay and money pit scam as Game of War. Read most recent reviews, they are all identical and there are hundreds warning of same scam.
dont play
by rayhammond86 on 2019/03/21 08:03
the money you have to spend on game $5 $20 $50 $75 $100 packs with monthly $5 pack they allow racist and sexist players to play bcause they pay there bills to get to cit 30 you need to pay at least $1000 from cit 20 and new gems tyat give 2000% attack and 2000% defense make it so high lv players can hit lower destrot 509k to 1 million troops in 1 battle they just want your money
Could be great...
by Hollywood_Taz on 2017/11/19 20:01
To the developers of Final Fantasy: A New Empire and to all the future players, this game could be a great game to be a member of. Many of the players bond together to create guilds are filled with a great mix of players from around the world. These guilds work together to create an atmosphere of team work and camaraderie. The developers have done great work with providing excitement and challenges to keep the game relevant. There is one big problem with this game. The developers have created and fostered an a pay to play game that caters to those with an bottomless credit card. Where those with unlimited funds can purchase their way to be the most powerful of players. This gives those players the ability to terrorize those that do not have unlimited funds. When it takes a player a month or more to just gather the required material to upgrade one item in their empire to then lose it all each time just before they can complete the process, it can be very frustrating. Many players choose to leave the game at this point. The lower paying players have no recourse but to accept the fact that they will never get ahead in the game. If you are lucky enough get into a guild that fosters team work and fun you will find it more enjoyable. If you are a gamer with a endless supply of funds and wish to be a bully, you will go far in this game. Signed - Myst Warrior - player that has a little extra cash to spare.
Deceptive Marketing Ploy
by TasteMyAwesomeSauce on 2017/07/28 23:45
So being an FF fan I had to play this. Since it was a fresh game, it offered and once in a lifetime deal for $5. Played a little more, found interested players, so still on. I've never played MS or GoW but everyone in the game says it's the same. Because I don't play these games the experience is new and fun, but I can see how this can get old fast. Already having issues building because of bullies. Most players are cool. But there are a lot who are not. The main things tho, this game has very little to do with FF. Besides the Main character and the 5 Chocobos and 3 baby Chocobos that run around on your farm, there is nothing else related to FF. So kind of a double whammy there, little to do with FF and quick repetitiveness. If I didn't spend that $5 I probably would not still be playing...Oh well, just a little longer till it gets really boring I guess. UPDATE: I hate this game and the P2W players in it! After playing since the start, this game is extremely P2W! You get a couple people who spends a thousand on the game and that's it. They run the entire Realm. You can try to rally, but they will always just throw more cash at it during fights and that's it. There's no way to win, making the game utterly pointless as soon as they started playing. Plus getting merged ruined our Clan, we went from #9 to #50 overnight, without so much as a warning it was coming. Bottom line: if it's not made by SquareSoft, it's not really Final Fantasy!
Not that great
by Tia00 on 2017/10/03 16:49
Compared to base games like clash of queens and clash of clans , this game is literally trash. They give you one advanced teleport and a few name changers at the beginning and they leave you literally on your own. Resources are hard to come by at the beginning it seems you have to be mining for your life. The tax rate for your allies to send you resources is so high that you can't even get help from them or you both would be losing. Tax rates for sending resources starts from 50% and that's an utter disaster. Map Is confusing, you can teleport out of a hoard of noobs to only have more noobs teleporting around you, it's literally a disaster. You can't get anywhere in this game without investing money in it. You can't even view the strongest players or guild because they don't even have a ranking system and board as yet. I understand this game is fairly new but with this type of marketing they're doing you have to at least come a little clutch or lit before marketing like that. You're marketing is at 95% and then the product is at 10%. It actually feels like we are the beta testers. I've seen many games start out a little bad but this is the worst I've seen. The sad part is you guys don't even have a support button where you can take feedback from the players who know a thing or two about these type of games. Anyways I don't mind playing but come on. Handle your stuff guys. Could be a great game you guys gotta plan out the stuff a bit better and you'll be fine.
Pay To Win
by AllN1cknamesRTak3n on 2018/05/05 11:06
This game has a pretty simple set up. Build up buildings. Research different areas to increase all around stats. Hunt people or monsters. Join guilds and help each other out. Simple enough. Once you have this down, things can change quickly with a little money. This game allows you to increase buildings, build defenses, or research to better yourself, but at the cost of resources and real time. You can lower these by spending real money and purchasing “packs” that lower things by a specific percent. Unfortunately, eventhough you can reach 100%, it doesn’t actually give you it for free. An example would be if a building requires 24 hours to build, at 100%, it will still take around 7 hours to build. At which point you can purchase speed ups, to finish off this 7 hours. There are people who have spent well over $10,000 into this game, so unless you have the money, you will never catch up. I have spent $25 into this and am stuck at level 41 unless I buy packs that have what I need to continue upgrading. Packs- 1st pack $5. 2nd pack $20. 3rd pack and beyond are $99. They will have random ones pop up for $50 and $80, but they are random. My recommendation is to play the game to understand how it works, and if you do plan on spending money, buy someone’s account. There are plenty for sale that already have what you need and are high enough in level to prevent you from waiting to much to still lose, but feel like you can catch up.
Don't play unless you have money
by Shadowkaera on 2017/09/15 15:32
I started playing this game thinking it wasn't that bad. Building my empire was going smoothly, I found a nice guild to call home, and my power was going up at a decent pace. Soon after I realized that the only way to get anywhere in this game is to spend money. The time you need to wait for buildings to finish, troops to train, as well as time to research all increase exponentially. So unless your willing to spend money you'll be idleing for days or weeks. Also at some point during your time in this game someone in your realm, who probably spent hundreds if not thousands on this game, will continuously attack you and probably take on your entire guild. If you complain the devs will probably tell you that they know it's frustrating to continually be attacked my a stronger player and that there are strategies to beat even the strongest player. That strategy is to spend more money than the other. It takes 6-10 people at level 35+ to beat a single level 32. Most of the lower level people in my guild have quit playing because it's impossible to take on a single person that high if he keeps spending money to rebuild while getting attacked. The player that are stronger than can't fight back either unless they group together and keep attacking for hours to see who has the deeper pockets. So, all in all, unless it have to money to make yourself strong enough to not be bullied or harassed I do not recommend playing this game
I personally like it but it needs work
by caycay22222 on 2017/07/27 04:27
The realm merge completely screwed everyone up. Now a lot of stronger players completely obliterate weaker guilds. I'm on the strongest guild so I'm safe but it's easy to admit that this is a game where the richest people win. The amount of time and resources it takes to build becomes ridiculous after level ten. I'm talking weeks of real time waiting for a virtual building to construct. So what ends up happening is a bunch of people spend hundreds on packs and upgrade their empires and troops. I spend hours on this games and I'm only at 300k power. Another guy in my guild who started after me is at 22million power just because he spends money. There is no way anybody can beat someone with that amount, and with the time and resources it takes to build there is no way for people to catch up or even keep up. Just another money guzzling square Enix spinoff. And on top of that it glitches and has trouble loading with wifi, even though all my other apps and game systems can work just fine with out wifi. Sometimes I'll login and randomly be missing thousands of stats, or my guild mates will be marked as enemies, or my construction time won't load. Little things keep it from being a good game. I like the game a lot. But once I hit week long construction times I'll probably get board and move on to something better.
Absolute Scam
by Briar511 on 2019/03/27 03:02
ETA: I’ve seen mention of VIP levels that will become available “soon” beyond the ten currently available. I still feel scammed since these only exist on one server, it seems, and the official site only lists the ten VIP I’m at now. Don’t advertise a pack on servers that can’t use it, that’s just bad business. I have no problem dropping some cash on a cell phone game I enjoy, so when I first saw the reviews about this costing money to play I shrugged it off. However, the first packs I bought were designed to let me bring up my VIP level quickly, as I wanted the perks. Max VIP level costs 2,000,000 points, it turns out. After buying that pack I have 88 items worth 1,000,000 VIP points each sitting in my inventory that I can’t use even to unlock VIP time because using two of them put me at max VIP level. They’ll sell you a pack that looks like a good deal but is garbage because you don’t need anywhere near all the items before you reach max and then there’s nothing you can do with them anymore. I made it to a citadel level 12 before I started getting hit by the bullies that have power levels in the millions compared to my 60k at the time. No wonder there are so many seeming abandoned low level structures. This game is a joke. I spent $60 on it and I’m strongly considering trying a charge back through PayPal since they sold me a bunch of items I actually can’t even use in obvious false advertisement that I needed all this to max out VIP.
No matching system = lopsided battles
by airlik on 2017/12/31 06:43
It was fun until I hit citadel level 10 or 11... suddenly people starting attacking me with level 4+ troops (you only have level 1 at my level), heroes at least 10 levels higher, and troop numbers 10x mine. I messaged one such person and said - is this how this works? You just crush people far weaker? Is that fun? The response was pretty typical... so I deleted the game. Could be fun, but really needs a matching system to make it so. Otherwise you get high enough to draw notice, then get stomped by losers who find easy battles amusing. That aside, the game would get 3 stars. It’s pretty involved and fun, if you like city building and tech advance mechanics. They have a pretty generous amount of speed-ups, in my experience, and it was just really getting interesting when I apparently got a target pasted on my city. What knocks it from 4 stars down to three in gameplay would be the heavy purchase pushing. Heavy, heavy pushing of in-app purchases. Like every time you launch the game there’s a splash screen for some $5 offer or other with a forced delay before being able to close it, and the whole time you play there’s a banner ad to buy gold. I understand these things take money to maintain, and I’ve spent accordingly on games I enjoy, but this was over-the-top, in-your-face pushing that detracted from gameplay and cost it a star.
Working as intended! Hahahahaha
by Nvmrukidding on 2019/01/11 00:21
Whether it is a problem with the purchase or a problem with an aspect of the game you will never get any sort of actual compensation from the company. The best they will ever do is make things about 25% right. They can implement a hot fix that takes away hundreds of dollars worth of your resources and they will never replace them. You can have gameplay issues that destroy substantial amounts of paid for merchandise and they will never help you. This is coming from someone that has played this game for a long time and spent a substantial amount of money playing it. If you ask him about a problem is they tell you everything is working as intended and never do anything to fix any of it. Every hour on the hour when the mini event changes The game crashes and it has been doing it for three or four months now. The March presets are terrible and you can’t customize them to actually do you any good. Half of the new things that they implement do not work right but if you mention it they don’t provide any sort of compensation they just tell you everything is working as intended. You can work for weeks on an event and half the realms get the prizes and the other half note. That was three weeks ago and they still haven’t given out what they were supposed to. This is the most awful dirt bag company of developers ever. I’m surprised square ENIX doesn’t pull their license
Disappointment
by Holly0127 on 2019/02/18 20:17
I’ve played this game since the beginning, loved it and supported it by buying the packs, but the longer i play the more disappointed i get. It’s a pretty much buy to play game, which I’ve known that from the beginning, but what you buy and thought was special, turns into a joke the next day or week. The things you work so hard for and bought is instantly gone the next moment with some ridiculous updates. Level 85 empire, you’d though your defenses were great with lots of mercenary guardians, millions of troops, high level heroes and lifetime boosts bought to defend your empire, but just from one hit, everything is gone. What is the point of me buying and playing if everything is lost in one hit. Makes me think it’s all a scam. The defenses and offenses in this game is so out of proportion, it hards to keep up. The only thing that i enjoyed all together was the chat functions, meeting new people and working together on events. The customer support initially were good, but then as the game progresses it has been a let down. Seem to be automated responds and no help in whatsoever. Sadly this will be my last time playing this game. So disappointed with it that I’ve given my account away. Forget about all the money I’ve spent for it to enjoy the game, it’s just not worth it anymore.
Fun when you can play for sure...
by Ambrai on 2017/12/08 11:10
As many of the other reviews state, this game encourages bottomless spending. You must join a guild to pass level 5 with your empire (you can leave again, but you will find others smooth the way a great deal). The game is geared to make it almost impossible to get by with a single account/empire. The initial players had to have waited years or paid hundreds of dollars trying to gain the resources to level skills (and the speed ups to hurry along the timers associated with building and researching). Monster Tactics 4 research was 64+ days and millions upon millions of resources. Without purchased speed ups and looted speed ups, the research would be ongoing still. Such is much of their tactics. Their math works oddly - a 50% off boost isn’t really 50% off (working as intended, not as advertised), so beware what you purchase or craft, and their bundles/packages are determinedly obscure in their descriptions of certain items, leaving you to guess or assume at their meaning. But, like so many games, the hope that the devs will hear and listen to the outcry instead of the cha-ching, has yet to happen. It can be fun. Just don’t expect that money grubbing aspect not to edge in sometime and spoil your view. Or the totally weird math if you can add, multiply, divide, or subtract, and have anyone else’s account to compare your numbers to.
Theives
by Dolle1L3 on 2018/07/05 12:13
This game has a lot of potential, but the developers are definitely in it for ALL the money. They gift you item unlocks, but then you have to spend real money for the item to do anything/upgrade. Resource and research/building requirements are on an hundreds of millions scale, sometimes venturing into the billions. After you reach about level 15, after they’ve suckered you in, thinking everything you need was available for free somewhere throughout the map, it becomes a world for the pay to players. And now that I have idiotically sunk hundreds of real, hard earned money into this game, they think they can get away with false advertising. They offer their packs (that *only* sell for 100$, and usually only offer one or 2 items of real consequence), then leave off items, and hope you don’t catch it. When confronted with screenshots or evidence that the item is missing, they claim there is nothing they can do, and cannot complete a refund because the package was delivered. I do not recommend this game unless you have A LOT of money to burn, and even then, I wish you wouldn’t just so they don’t get to keep raking in money they aren’t earning, but stealing... I would hope they’d see this and at least feel bad, but they don’t care, and it’s obvious by their shoddy, unorganized, non-functioning events and event items, among other things.. Yours Truly, Empire Leader, LisaPetey
Terrible developer support
by Kenny Price on 2018/05/17 12:47
The game is really fun and engaging at first. Then you get to a wall where progressing is extremely difficult and will literally take a year but wait! There is a $5 purchase that will take you to the next level! This is the early sign of how pay to win this game is. There is next to no strategy or competition if you play against another player who is spending money constantly. There are a lot of games that people say are pay to win but I assure you they have not yet played this game. To top it all of the developers will change game mechanics of certain troops after you have purchased a pack and they will do so without alerting anyone of game changes. This game has some of the worst tutorials or explanation I have seen in any game. After the first minor tutorial you are completely on your own to figure out how everything works. This can be fun as it’s like a puzzle. Only issue is as stated above the developers will change the mechanics of troops without any type of notification leaving you frustrated having wasted your precious resources on these useless troops. If you bring this to the developers attention don’t anticipate any type of help or explanation. They will basically tell you to screw off. To summarize this is the biggest pay to win game on the market with the greediest and least helpful developer support you will encounter
Potentially great
by Kaderin the Coldhearted on 2017/12/07 22:36
I love the people that play this game. Friendships have been fostered because of this game. I detest the way the developers made a great game that the only way you can “win” is to pay ridiculous sums of money. It’s disheartening. They’ve actually created a world that throws aside all the wonderful ness that the FF franchise has created and makes you bow to the almighty dollar. Players that spend ridiculous amounts are trapped in a realm where lower level players are and they have no choice but to attack people several (million) power levels less than them just to play and not be in FarmVille. I get tired of the “relax, it’s a war game mentality”. I’m a power player and even I can see the bullying that goes on in this game. It’s ridiculous. I’ve even had the “pleasure” of being told by some of these power players to sext them or burn. Well I can block their messages but I cannot escape their ganging up on me to destroy me. I just have to take the video game “gang bang” then rebuild with the help of my guild. Some people might wonder why I’m still playing after these comments. The truth is my guild is the only reason. I won’t leave them to burn or be harassed alone. I am a strong person IRL. A game will not break me. Hopefully the developers will actually start looking into the NUMEROUS emails they get about bullying and sexual harassment. I personally doubt it, but one can still hope.
Someone call the BBB
by Sephirah on 2018/05/13 23:36
This game is atrocious and the devs are the worst kind of people. Please heed the immense 1 star reviews and stay away from this game! Reading some of the 5 star reviews, I'm positive fake reviews are being posted because there is no way anyone who plays this game wouldnt call it a pay to play. You can't open the game without constant ads about "sales" where the package is 99 dollars. Do you know another game where the base price is 99 dollars? These people are criminals. How this game can possibly rate 4.2 is beyond me with all the one star reviews. It's shady at best. You start out in a new realm and quickly realize who the big spenders are because they already have 1 mil power and are terrorizing everyone. Then they merge your realm into an older one where there's huge fish in the pond and now there's nothing for you to do but roll over and die because if you happen to be smart and realize the game isn't worth 99 dollars let alone 10,000 dollars, you won't spend more than the 20 dollar deal they gave you after the 5 dollar deal. You'll hope they let the price come down again so you can try and compete but they won't, because it's not about the game, it's purely about the money. The big spenders rest on the delusion that their money had somehow made them important, completely unaware that they have been conned. It's sickening.
The cost of this game is daunting
by Windredone on 2018/02/21 15:13
The reason I rated this game so low is the cost of play. Sure you can get to level 15 without to much of a slow pace but from there on out it takes a lot of time or money to build a better empire and by a lot I mean $$$$. It starts low on cost oooh a $5 pack, once purchased those cheap little packs disappear and are replaced by $20. Ok, not great but you can swing that. Then those packs are nowhere to be seen once you purchase one. Then the packs increase again and again up to the final cost of $100 for a pack and trust me you will need them just for the ability to speed your knowledge and build which can once you get to a level 22+ can take not just days but weeks and even months to progress. And you will get stomped all over by those that have deep pockets and have no problem dropping a grand or more to be the best. Some areas of progress in the game require two to three $100 packs to get a select building in your empire to its top level. If you can’t at least drop $500 don’t even down load you will get extremely frustrated spend what you can on it then quit. The realms are a veritable wasteland of abandoned empires of frustrated players. So is the game free? Only the download!!!
If only I could give this app Zero Stars
by Wizdow on 2018/11/12 07:13
So this week Apple the Billionaires started a promotion for people to rank best applications so this company does the unthinkable they literally make up a sale 1.9 Trillion Platinum for $100 which is great in many people’s eyes then two days later they shrink their packages down too 16 Billion platinum making it impossible for those who didn’t have the spare cash on hand too catch up and if you happen to take two days off then you’ll be stuck with $25,000 bill too catch up and compete boycott this game until they treat everybody fair not just when they want positive ratings Realm Merges just like the very beginning erasing all stats and giving you not even 10% back on monster food saying that they encountered a glitch the list goes on and on that’s why many millionaires are leaving this application for good they see it for what it is now there hard earned money down the drain this company deserves bankruptcy mobile strike went down game of war went down this one will too because they scheming players constantly and expecting people to invest more money enough is enough your 16 Billion platinum packs isn’t worth 2 penny’s BOYCOTT seriously don’t waste money save the money for better game that actually treats all customers fairly and doesn’t try to rip people off constantly!
Better have deep pockets
by 1736372728 on 2019/04/14 14:33
The game is fun, and when you start out they give you a few items to help you out. The game revolves around upgrading your empire and in order to protect it and become powerful you will need to spend real money. The first few pay upgrades are reasonable I think the first is $30 and the second is around $50, but after that everything else you purchase is $100. You can maybe make it to level 25-30 without a purchase but you will need to find a good guild that has members with deep pockets. There are constantly people quitting the game who have spent upwards of $3000 from my guild because they just get slaughtered by people with unlimited cash flow. You can protect your empire with bubbles but the game only gives you a small amount, the rest come from purchasing upgrades or competing in events, but you need to be powerful to compete in most of them. The first thing that happens whenever you open the game before you can do anything is a screen with “special offers” all at the low price of $100. This game could be fun, and most people stick around for the guild chats, but the developers are so ridiculously greedy that all they want you to do is hit the pay button and you need to pay if you want to stand your ground.
All about the $$$
by >Mr.Jinx< on 2017/09/23 16:25
This game is fun and can be very addicting, but is a very simple pay to win game. I've seen other games like this one, but this puts the toppings on the cake. The realm vs realm event is literally only for people spend money on the game. About 80% of the events that go on you have to spend money, otherwise you won't get any rewards. The in-game loyalty purchases are a joke. The amount of time to wait to build and train is ridiculous. The only people who can control the crystal are the big money spenders and top players. Can you believe there are people who spent almost over a $1,000 on this game? Some high level players farm other players all day, if not, all week. It's quite frustrating for people who want to play, but simply can't due to big money spenders. There is no balanced realms or guilds during a guild kill event. The biggest guilds take on the lowest guilds of the realm and get all the goodies while the low level players get to watch and almost have no fun. Most players during the RVR event or guild kill event use their shield barriers because they have absolutely no chance against high level players. There is no material trading or gem trading. This game likes to take your money! Money hungry company that likes to take your money and obviously doesn't care about their players unless you pay to play.
Don’t waste your time and money on this app
by wish this game was better on 2018/05/21 13:29
The game itself like many empire building games is designed for you to build an empire but at each level you build up to they make it harder and harder to reach without spending huge amounts of money. Moreover, the amount you spend is dependent on what continent you live on apparently...where some people can spend what equals to $10 to $20 to get a package and others have to spend almost $100...doesn’t seem fair...then they encourage people to attack each other and take their resources and reduce their soldiers number forcing them to rebuild what they lost. Furthermore, as you move further up in level everything requires crazy amount of time to build or restructure for instance it took me 2,000 days to upgrade my capital to level 40. I had to use an astronomical number of speed ups to get my capital upgraded...my farms can never keep up with the food I need for my soldiers so my soldier numbers are too low to be competitive....and then they added scrolls and other crap you have to buy in order to upgrade and added new buildings you have to buy packages for before you can even use them and they love giving you locked chests that you cannot use unless you buy keys....don’t waste your time and money if you haven’t already added this app
They missed the mark
by Pharmerjon on 2018/01/14 17:04
I truly enjoy games like this. The issue I have with many of these types of games is they offer those with lots of extra money to spend on the game ways to dominate that regular players can’t match. Now, I have no problem with a game incentivizing those that can pay for extra power ups, but the games that really are meant for the players and not just for the profit of the designers, are those where you can get all of the big power ups eventually even if you don’t have a bottomless credit card. The real problem with this game in particular is that the increase the price of the offers each time you make a purchase. Then, they keep making new options that you must now pay through the nose to have access to. At $99 for each pack, the average player can’t compete. I enjoyed this game for the time I played. I got in with a great group that made the game fun...for a time. Eventually, if you can’t pay, you just can’t keep up and you become a liability for your team. I deleted the game today with sadness after I was asked to leave my group to make room for more powerful players. If you don’t have the extra $$, don’t bother with this game.
Love/hate
by wont let me submit on 2018/08/25 23:46
Did you love game of war? Well, you will hate this game. Upon appearance they are very similar. You’d think you were in the same game. Well then comes currency. Know how you could buy a gold pack and you could buy shields and ports and anti scout and VIP points. Now all based on Loyalty points. I know what you’re thinking, I had millions upon millions of loyalty in GOW. Well that’s because you could buy ports with gold and it didn’t cost you 150k loyalty for one. I mean, they offer ports in a $100 pack. You might get 10, but keep in mind those are for only in realm. You’ll have to purchase a whole separate pack for RVR ports of you wanna go over and participate. A friend of mine quit because she WANTED to buy rvr port packs but they wouldn’t come up for her. The point ratio is 5:1 for power destroyed if you’re in the opposing realm. She couldn’t get to it to play. Oh and then there is a troop limit. You can only build so many troops based on your citadel level. No more trapping, basically. I mean you could if you buy special packs that unlock certain troops etc. basically it’s a money pit and I never had a problem paying to play, but they really take it to you in this one. Please developers if you’re reading, let us purchase more than speeds and rss with gold.
Same s@&t, different game
by TheRailfan on 2017/12/27 05:26
When I first started seeing commercials for this game, it seemed a little familiar to me. I thought I’d try it out because it looked pretty awesome, and I’m always looking for new fun games. The developer name threw up another red flag however, so I did a little bit of research on Epic Action LLC. It didn’t take long to find that this was a reskinned Mobile Strike/Game of War. Epic War, Epic Action, MachineZone. All the same developers, just trying to mask their true identity to lure in unsuspecting customers. They even used the same ad format. It will only end like mobile strike did. For those unfamiliar with mobile strike, it starts out fun, but soon you can’t let go because of the investment of time, energy, and undoubtedly money. In a few months, you will either ruin your life, go bankrupt, or your state will die, as you spend days using 3MTTTTT day speed ups to research tier 50 troops and build a level 632 HQ. The joke was always “if it’s so bad, go play candy crush”, and quite frankly, you’re better off doing that, or anything else. Both I personally and others I know have nearly bankrupted themselves playing games made by MachineZone. Save yourself the trouble and money, and maybe a divorce, and go play a better game. The less they make, the sooner we can shut games like these down.
Stop the whining this game is great
by Watchman5773 on 2017/11/01 15:03
Been playing this game for a good month now. I’ve read how people say this game is a scam. It’s the furthest thing from it, however if you don’t like math, thinking or waiting and don’t want to spend to avoid that this game is not for you. Many have complained about stronger players stealing RSS they have bought with real money, those who lost that did that on their own. The game gives you a RSS page where items you buy are 100% safe unless you use more than you need and bring the resources into your empire for consumption. This game has a solid RPG character build system that makes it fun to grind that’s teamed with a flawless social interface. For those of us who spend money it takes simple reading, communication with advanced players and a bit of research to know how to get the best bang for your buck, if your into this type a game your here to do just that so jump in get your strategic mind set and have fun. Warning this game is not for the weak at heart, it’s a war game so expect ups and downs. Play smart and you can’t go wrong here.
No one rates this 5 stars- Devs need to get a clue
by CloudClimber on 2018/01/24 03:38
The biggest complaint everyone has with this game is the outrageous pay to win structure - $99 packs that you WILL NOT advance without buying after you purchase 1 $5 pack and one $20 pack. New packs and more powerful gear than the last gear you bought last week. EVERY SINGLE WEEK. New Item! $500 to upgrade said item. $100 to purchase it doesn’t cut it. We are in a realm where the largest player is 200,000,000 power above nearly all the rest in the realm- he has spent $20,000 on this game. There’s another guy nearly his size in the same guild and the whole guild is bigger than the rest of the realm combined. Read the rest of these reviews- any positive ones are paid reviewers, people enjoy so many aspects of this game but eventually quit because they can not play. Devs don’t get the concept of micro transactions and lose 100 players for every player that can afford to spend $200-$300 a week. That being said, I have spent over $3,000 on this game since September and I should be able to compete with that and would not be able to in any realm that I have seen so far. Each realm has multiple whales that can’t be beat even if the whole realm rallied them (quite seriously).
Fun at first, then a shameless money pit

This is a game that begins quickly and can pull you in because it is fun and allows you to become involved with other players in your guild, allowing you to work together develop attack strategies and to become successful. Mildly attractive, it soon turns into a game where the richest people win and compete to get power ups that make them that much stronger. At $100 for an 'item back/boost,' the game gets super expensive, super quick. Anyone who wants to compete at the highest level is given no option but to pay the outrageous costs. If you don't pay, make no mistake, you will be left in the dust and your empire will be destroyed relentlessly by other guilds who have no problem paying. The game would be a lot more fun if they offered the random specials like 'Clash of Clans' or offered a chance for people who don't pay to earn powerful items and the power ups needed to win. It gets even worse when you begin to compete against other worlds. Be warned, it will be hard but fun at first but if you want to be competitive, you'll have to pay. The novelty of this game will wear off quickly if the developers do not do something about the outrageous expenses and give people who can't afford them the opportunity to earn items over time.
Have to purchase items weekly to advance!!
by Ryline on 2017/08/26 15:27
They force you to have to buy a "pack" with real money as it contains items that are not available anywhere else in the game. Once you make your purchase it seems that within a couple days to a week they roll out new required items, again only available in these "packs". Unfortunately this game is a 100% pay to play trap and you cannot earn most items by old fashioned hard/smart gaming. If they copy the same setup as in their previous games "Game of War" & "Mobile Strike" which appears they are identically doing so far. Then once you buy 1 or 2 $5 packs those disappear and then the next packs are $20 & $50. After you buy 1 or 2 of those you are then forced to have to purchase their $100 packs. If you don't then you are unable to keep up with the daily/weekly updates and cannot get new gear, level your buildings/troops, etc... Spending real money on games is fine, but they release so much new content so fast that you in turn have to financially commit to this game weekly. Once your forced to buy the $100 packs, then that turns into a nightmare leaving you with a dead outdated account if you don't keep spending. I love the Final Fantasy games & this company completely ruined it with greed. Good Luck everyone!!!
Worst money pit ever
by maxlightz on 2019/02/25 22:45
At every turn the game expects you to pay $100 for packs to continue normal gameplay and progress your empire. After 4 months your $100 purchase will not even advance you 1 level. Many players spend over $500 in a short time on this game. The developers have no shame in forcing the pay to win model on you. It’s not even pay to win. After level 30 it’s pay to play. You literally can’t advance without buying a pack. But be careful not to buy a pack by mistake. They won’t refund you. Which is hard to do because you get a forced popup ad for a pack literally every time you open the game. And the “buy” button on the pack is located in the same place as most of the in-game menu buttons. So it’s easy to click “buy” on accident. This happened to me the other day and I was careful to keep my thumb away from the home button so that it would not authorize. But the app was unresponsive. After several minutes I went to double click the home button to force quit the app. But at this exact moment the app responded and authorized my purchase. Total baloney! I am now forced to dispute this with my credit card company. In summary, never play this game. It will consume your life, your money, and leave you with nothing for your trouble.
Realm Merge ruined the game and wasted time and money
by p00nski on 2017/08/03 18:32
I started this game in a fresh realm and grew to become to strongest guild in our realm in 2 days. I was one of the top ranked people in the realm and decided to spend 5 dollars and then 20. Everyone else on the guild also followed that way we can stay ahead in the realm and everything was fine and dandy. We are making plans on getting the crystal when BAM. We are all merged into a new server. To put it into perspective, we were the top realm at 5million power just to be thrown into a realm next to a guy who single handedly had 4 times the power of our entire guild combined. Safe to say all of us got destroyed and there is no way to come back into the game. If we knew that we would be randomly merged into a server without warning then NONE of us would have spent a dime on this game. It's a ploy to make new people feel like they can get a head and then they dump you into a server to die and uninstall. Initially I enjoyed the game, but the server merge completed made our entire guild of around 80 people uninstall and quit. A good game should encourage long term stability and play, not random realm changes that literally ruin everything. It seems the developers don't care for their players and are just trying to make a quick buck. What a shame.
Pay to win then pay more
by IhateRovio on 2018/02/20 06:29
So I thought this game would be different than most others of its style. You build up your city someone comes along and is able to destroy it. That is not the case but it is. What they do is they have you buy a bunch of resources for five dollars. Then the next one is $20 you get a choice it’s $20. Then the next one is $100. People who spend $125 or more are very quickly four or more times larger than a free player. Once those players Who can afford to financially crush their opposition band together they then merge the rounds without prior warning so that he will have to spend more money to catch up with the new people in your room. Not only on do they receive the benefits of that wallet but they also receive benefits once they take the Crystal in the middle because they can give you negative bonus while giving themselves a positive bonus on top of spending their money. If you do not spend money you will never be able to compete with them even with a guild. I would highly recommend this game if you can afford to spend money like it is fair and do not have a family. Otherwise I would stay very far away from this business model.
Pay to win, devs don’t care
by Lethann on 2017/11/07 13:58
This game is Pay to Win. Period. All it takes is one person on your realm spending hundreds of dollars to get so far ahead then stomp over everyone else. There is even a title they can place on other players that makes their attack something like 5-10% lower and resource generation 10% lower. Our guild watched someone go from 16 to 20 in hours and the only possible way is spending major cash. They pay packages make it obvious that this is nothing but a cash grab game. No 99¢ packages. You get a single $5 package but once you buy it you only have $20 or more available. This game is obviously not developed by Square and was licensed by third party developers who just want a cash grab not a sustainable fun game for all players. If the pay packages didn’t exist or were smaller and less game breaking it would be balanced, but with them you might as not bother unless you have hundreds to spend. Maybe you get lucky and don’t have a “bully” on your server but that’s unlikely. There are even certain crafting things you only get if you buy the $100 packages. Totally broken!! Avoid this game at all costs. Don’t spend money on it. Complain to square. This is such a disappointment and a blight on the Final Fantasy name.
Too many glitches and problems for what it costs to play
by Raging Ravus on 2018/10/05 17:35
This game is nearly impossible to play for free and be able to compete against players that spend. I am one of the players who has spent a lot of money. I have played this game for over a year, and there has always been minor errors and glitches in the game. Three weeks ago, our realm was forced to merge with another realm of players. Since then, MZ has been unable to let me and other players use their expansion building content that we purchased for hundreds of dollars in multiple pack offers. We have been robbed of in-game boosts, important rare resources produced by these expansion buildings, and thousands of real world money spent for these expansions. After weeks of unanswered messages to customer support, nothing has been done to fix this problem. The developers continue to add new expansion content that requires more money to unlock, but yet they cannot apparently take any time to figure out why we cannot delete and rebuild our previously purchased expansion building content. The developers of this game and its customer support only care about lining their pockets with people’s money. They don’t care much for the actual gameplay or their customers playing the game.
Money Pit
by Forsaken13fox on 2018/05/26 06:35
This is a fun game when you first start. after you level up and progress further in the game it is impossible to keep growing unless you are willing to spend thousands of dollars. The available options to purchase for this game are $100 packages and nothing below that once you spend $5 once and $20 once. To be able to be competitive and not have your empire destroyed over and over is to spend a TON of money. All the new updates just keep the need to spend mass amounts of money going. The game has become a place to chat with friends more then it is to play with the issue of not being able to do anything. For example to upgrade one building your wait time will literally be 600 days which means you’ll have to wait almost 2 years for ONE building to upgrade oh unless you spend $100 to get speed ups and reduce the time and that’s just 1 out of around 30 buildings you can do the math. Same goes for leveling up characters, gear, research and so on. The game has become very repetitive and the developers don’t really fix any issues unless they see your a big spender you just get reply’s to your issue that are generic and not even on the same subject.
Dear developer.
by Szr101 on 2017/09/25 02:54
I have been playing this game and it's a joke. This is coming from a player that has ranked in multiple of your money scamming world events. The game is great, I have not bought a 100 dollar package yet. So it is possible to be good but after a while you hit a brick wall. In sorry to tell you that this game is not worth $100 dollars. When I can buy and play two platform games, or even four mobile games. I love the game, but come on I see a potential huge drop off of players within the coming months maybe even weeks. I know I'm getting frustrated that I have to spend a week to get enough resources to just research one item that I want. You charge us for stuff that is already given in other games. Most of them you can unlock a second build que for free if you work hard enough and save enough gold. Then one top of that your resource capacity is equal to only one day and 4 hours of resources. Sorry but most games have it at least at 24 hours of resources. I really enjoy this game so please do something or else I will just go to another affordable and player friendly mobile game.
The rate of progression is too slow
by Schmoopicus on 2019/02/12 13:59
I was tricked into playing this game for longer than I needed to. I started it through a Tapjoy offer, and tried to start 2 other offers on it considering the developers said nowhere you could stack offers. After playing more than I wanted to and being denied my rewards for the multiple offers, here’s what I think of the game itself: if you want to wait for outrageous amounts of time, this is the game for you! The resource gathering is so slow it’s painful. Specifically gathering stone. I had more quarry’s than any other buildings, and they were all upgraded. It was still my slowest resource, which is annoying considering you need it for pretty much EVERYTHING. There’s not enough actual gameplay with how much and how long you need to wait around for anything to happen. I forget what the area is called where you need ether, but it’s a useless mechanic of the game that should be trashed. It’s just there to grab cash. You can use it like twice at most a day unless you pay. This game is trash. Please don’t waste your time or money when there are games you c an actually play. This is a disgrace to the Final Fantasy series. Just go play one of the real games in the series instead of this pile.
Fun when it started, then reality set in
by CaseyHome2 on 2018/06/03 21:02
I enjoyed the game at the start. Even agreed to spend $5 and then $20 to ramp up my game quickly.. then I quickly realized that the game is nothing but a money grab, pay to play.. those willing to spend real cash money get all the resources, those without an unlimited wallet just get smashed. There’s no way to get ahead in the game if you don’t buy the $100 packs that they pop up in your face EVERY TIME you open the game. Ads for $100 packs are in every screen. They no longer offer reasonable prices if I would be willing to spend $20 to get another set of resources/speedups, etc.. no I have to spend $100, and if I don’t, I get destroyed by the other players that do spend the money.. last night I got invaded 26 times by a player 200 times stronger than me, just apparently because he enjoyed destroying/stealing all my resources, and killing every soldier I had. I was absolutely defenseless against him, and nothing I could do but take invasion after invasion setting my city on fire, because I’m unwilling to give the game developers $100 cash to try and get enough resources to defend myself.. what would be the point if I did? Someone else would just spend $100 more than me and destroy me anyway
Could be better
by 1MaMaVee ONLY on 2018/07/02 05:14
I love the people I have met in my guild and in the game itself. However, it has become frustrating. I’ve been playing since November 2017 and I’m ONLY citadel 31 (yes, I just ascended 🙄). Someone like me who is a stay at home mom can’t afford to buy packs at $100 every 30 minutes because a level 50 player has destroyed my empire continuously and sits in a hive for over a week hitting the same people daily. It’s hard to build and takes a massive mount of speed ups to do so. If packs were more affordable maybe it would be a little easier to purchase at times and cater to those who CANT afford to dish out $100 for every pack. Other than the money issue maybe they can do better with the amount of points required to reach tiers for rewards in events. Example: (specific)monster hunt tier 1- reach 10,500 points. I mean really. You’d have to purchase packs to upgrade hero just to keep hitting monsters to reach tier 1. Other than that. It’s a decent game to meet new people and have some fun, kill some time.

Overall good but..
by MimiHightopp on 2017/11/01 20:56
Overall this is a good game but there's a few things I'm not fond of. I wish there was a way for friends to be in the same realm without having to make their account for them for starters. There's also an abundance of people that clearly start the game and don't come back to it. I wish there was some way to get rid of the non active people as they just take up space. It's definitely a game you CAN play without paying, but it's easier to play if you pay. I wish there was a way to make collecting resources within the realm a bit faster. I also don't like that other empires can swoop in and get that last hit or two it takes to kill a monster when you've been working on it, because it takes a super long time for energy to build back up. I've pulled a few people into playing the game and they seem to like it, but have some of the same issues I do. The things I dislike are pretty common for these types of games, hence the four stars. They are all small in comparison to the good things.
A lot of fun for deep pockets.
by Spraggnasty on 2017/10/10 16:40
This game is almost worthless if you don't pay to play. I'm at citadel 27. I have 9million power. I have spent hundreds to get there, only to have the Realm versus Realm event come out and I can't even participate because I have to spend 100 dollars for the special teleports you need. At this point in the game the resource I need to progress can only be gained by spending more money. I've sent multiple tickets to the developers only to get cookie cutter responses, in which they basically tell me to spend more money. Then they come out with new events that you can only participate in by SPENDING MORE MONEY. It doesn't do any good to complain because for every complaint there is ten others spending money. This is a complete cash grab game. You have players that have spent thousands and they are the ones making the "rules" and have the power to completely ruin your empire and your experiences. Don't waste your time with this one. Go spend 10 bucks on the Final Fantasy 7 remake in the App Store and have a blast for days and days. Do not believe the ratings you see here. They have made fake accounts to give it five stars. It is not a five star game. Go and actually look at what people are saying.
Futile and Expensive
by Audio Purist on 2018/02/05 15:55
I’ve been playing this game for quite some time with two main and a large number of farm accounts. After spending a couple hundred dollars, I’m about ready to throw in the towel. Everything in this game is designed to cost major money. The first boost pack is $5. The next is $20. From then on, they’re $100. Once you spend $20 on one pack, that’s it...I think I’ve been offered one thing at $80, but that’s an aberration...The rest are $100. (I think it goes to $140 next!). Every new feature costs $100. If you want the more powerful troops, it’s $100. The new monsters are $100. Extra casino tokens are $100. Access to the new weapons forge costs $100. You want to be able to hit L4 monsters? Without speed-ups, it’s a 53 day waiting period AFTER paying roughly 500 million in resources. That many resources and speed ups will cost you...you guessed it...$100. And don’t even ask about getting L5 troops The top players spend many thousands on this game. If you’re independently wealthy and haven’t anything better to do, this game, like a heroin addiction, is a great way to fix your problem. If you’re a normal person, don’t bother. Go adopt a puppy instead. Personally, I’m through...
My review
by MajorQT1 on 2018/09/14 03:22
Pros - Great gaming community. The people mostly come for the love of FF but some were duped into playing for credits in other games.. (haha🙋🏼‍♀️) There are 6 servers so far and all are aged differently, my Realm for example has been around for a year this month. Lots of things to do and keeps you entertained while playing with other enthusiasts. Ever changing and capable of being Free2Play for awhile. Cons- Pay2Play kicks in. It costs a lot to play(and advance) after awhile. It can become addictive and time consuming. Customer support can be a joke most of the time. Many times you get Robo answers that don't answer your questions at all. If I could get my money back completely I probably would. But it's impossible. Devs (developers) only tend to reply real answers when you send screenshots of your problems. Glitches and force closes happen pretty regularly and you have to keep minimum contacts and empty mails, reports, and such notifications regularly. Above all a good game but be careful of the financial costs. Some people could have bought a new or used car with such investments.
Playing for 12 months now
by BigDCuz on 2019/04/14 13:47
The game itself is fun, the detail is amazing and the app itself runs semi smoothly depending on what’s going on. The main reason for 1 star is because of the greed of the developer. The terrible customer service, and the overall lack of care from the developer itself. If something goes wrong/glitches don’t even bother to contact them, they will give you a canned response with no actual answer to your question. Even if things relevant to the game they give poor answers on. The game is fun if you get friends in it and can depend on them to help you grow, the defense/offense is a fun portion to learn, and the gear can really change the game, with all that being said, it costs a lot of money to stay current/keep up with the rest of the realm you’re in. Every realm has mega spenders and unless you have “30k is petty cash to me” mentality, it will certainly be painful to grow. In general this game is okay, it could be better, with a better support platform and a “let’s stop being so greedy” attitude would be nice. Other games don’t expect you to max out a credit card or spend your savings, this one does. Btw nothing advertised in the pictures actually happen on the game.
A game full of trolls
by Done with Trolls on 2019/01/07 23:20
Unless you've got unlimited funds, DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! Game caters to the high roller spenders. Purchases start out innocent enough at $5, after you do that it's $20, then a whopping $100 every time you get anything of any importance. The game looks and acts NOTHING like they portray it to be. You will lose troops that you've paid cash for when they are supposed to go to the hospital first. Support is a joke and your supposed to take "trust us the game is fair" as a legitimate answer. Once you hit lvl 20 kiss your hero goodbye because you'll get attacked on nearly a daily basis by players 30+ levels above you looking to steal your hero for a temporary boost, then they will come back a few days later and do it all over again. Just an all around horrible game that does nothing to foster any growth in the community. This game will die, the only solace I have is that there are people on it that will have wasted thousands of dollars for nothing when it does. Mind you I am a player that has played for a year plus and have given them multiple ideas/ways to level the playing field only to fall on deaf ears. The developers don't care and are laughing all the way to the bank at the expense of their user base.
Requires money to make progress after a week
by Doc Walt on 2018/01/19 09:55
This game may seem fun initially as your empires grows from nothing, but then it becomes apparent that you cannot advance without money. However, what the money buys you is often less than what the offer suggests, so it forces you to spend more money so that your prior expenditures don't become wasted money. Eventually you will learn that the game is dominated by high level players who spent thousands to get where they are. You essentially become their fodder where they use your empire to harvest resources by attacking you. At that point, you will realize that all your efforts and/or all the money you spent advancing, is essentially just for the benefit of those high level players. You will spend weeks recovering from the damage your empire took from these high level players. It will not be worth it. It's also very glitchy. Recently, there was an incorrectly programmed pack, that when purchased, gave you free upgrades - saving those players a thousand dollars. Also, do not play this on an older 3rd gen iPad. The touch interface oddly stops working on some screens when the number of items on the screen is reduced exactly to four.
Disappointing
by TFamilyCircus on 2017/08/31 18:24
If you're a fan of the Final Fantasy game series, and expect this to have any similarities, you will be sorely disappointed. I was lured in by the nice cinematic advertisements. I've yet to see a storyline like I've been expecting. The other players really ruin the game. Expect a constant barrage of requests to share nude photos, or sex talk & bullying in the messages & chat system, punctuated by a few people asking for help that go ignored. In actual game play, I don't know how a new player is expected to get anywhere, without spending money. Strong, established guilds mercilessly go after others, laying waste to your little empire faster than you can train troops & research upgrades. Bullies abound- one in particular demanded that I join his guild within 24 hours or he'd destroy me, and attacked 30 seconds later, with 2 more attacks in the next 2 minutes, and attacked 5 times additionally while I was asleep! Repeat attacks should have a timer, and higher levels should be limited as to how far beneath levels they can attack. In short, if you're not already an established player, don't bother. Much of this game needs to be fixed to make it feasible for a new player to join in.
Don’t waste your time!
by Super Scientist 6 on 2018/03/29 17:41
Do not waste your time on what they should be calling Final Fantasy XV Taps and Timers. I would rate this app 0 out 5 stars if I was able. Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire is trademarked by Square Enix but licensed to Epic Action LLC. If your new to Final Fantasy or an epic fan you will NOT enjoy this Final Fantasy “Simulation”. There’s very little fun to be had in this app. Epic Action LLC has taken everything fun and entertaining about a Final Fantasy game and removed it. They have seemingly replaced fun mechanics with the most monotonous Tap and Timer systems that start out small but then go on to take days, weeks, and even months to complete. There’s no way to sustain and/or grow your empire without buying resources and using speed up consumables. This game is purely pay to win. The packs of consumables start out at $5 and then shoot up to $100. This is how Epic Action LLC fools gamers into overpaying for a game that’s not worth $1. Not only have they badly ported over the Final Fantasy XV 3D models and animations in a poor effort to reuse content already created but they fool gamers by advertising a tower defense mini game that really has nothing to do with Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire and can only be played with no rewards once a day.
It’s Like I’m Looking At An Abstract Painting In Game Form
by Golden Griffin on 2018/07/01 14:56
The UI is awful. I downloaded the game for a reward in a different one thinking, “It’s by a big name company and has a ton of good reviews and players. It’s going to be just fine.” Good gosh was I wrong. You know how when kids start being creative with characters and stories and they just throw in everything they like to make it seem cool? “This monster is going to be covered in spikes! My character is going to have every super power and is going to be immortal! MORE SHARP EDGES!” This is exactly how I see this game. There are so many unnecessary aspects and they are introduced horribly. I went through the process of just leveling things to level four and I already had no idea what anything did because it explained next to nothing and just shoved me into the next level up quest. It was all just there at once like they were saying, “Our game is cool! Look how cool RIGHT NOW!” The rest of the game may be fine and it may have been amazing once I learned it all, but it actually made me mad how repetitive, boring, and annoying is was. Introduce the game. Don’t throw up on my eyes with everything all at once. I was trying to like it and I just couldn’t.
$$$
by 386269 on 2018/05/29 11:28
I’m personally not a FF fan but I don’t hate the series. However, since my friend plays FF, we started playing this game together. At first we joined a smaller guild and we both spent $5. It was really fun at first. However things began to move really slow. It took me a month to get to 20k. Not bad and that was with many tests for school so the game wasn’t my main focus. My plan was that for summer I was gonna go all out and get into a top guild. By the end of the summer I was at 80k. By the end of October I was at 100k. I was happy! I could join a bigger guild. My friend had quit by then so I just went by myself. I joined this guild while it was in the middle of being attacked by big group of people who had probably spent thousands on the game. I and 2 other people who were under 150k, were pushed all the way down to 8.9k. After working from May to October I reached 100k and it was ripped away in an instant. I urge you to not play this game because you are supporting developers who are not only tainting FF, but are showing the industry that this is OK. That making Pay-to-Win is a functional business practice when it’s not. We as players should not have to live with this and just accept it.
Worst example of pay to win I have ever played
by Nomnom101 on 2018/02/09 18:56
If you have a few hundred dollars lying around and want to win this game is for you! Resource/unlock packs for this game start at $5 then once you buy one the price increases to $20 if you buy that packs are then $100 and stay there. Packs will typically only unlock one function: merc pits, monster farm, etc. but that is all they do. Unlock them. You then need to spend several hundred more on packs to upgrade them to a point that they are useful. Pack descriptions are deceptive at best and the devs know that. I’ve done the math and their is no way to be a player anywhere near the top dogs without spending hundreds if not over $1000 to unlock everything you need. Everything useful in this game is locked behind a paywall. Once you get above level 10 it becomes impossible to have enough resource to upgrade (because the resource cap is too low) anything without buying packs. Even if you use tiles to go above the resource cap your vault will only protect a small amount if you are attacked. Which you will if you are weak, and you will be unless you spend money. I hate that this game was licensed to use FF assets. This is a disgrace to the series.

Too much
by Ethanmrobo on 2019/04/24 23:02
Everything revolves around cash. Who spent the most is the strongest.
This game is a scam
by willcasp on 2019/04/24 22:58
You invest time and money, and then a new “upgrade” comes out that nullifies all the time and money you have spent. Check out the reddit threads on this game and company! Stay away. I am a bit shocked that Apple keeps these products in their App Store.
Game is a joke
by SRFire12 on 2019/04/24 21:08
Nothing works. They have updated the game and broke half of it and they do not care. They don’t fix anything but they want everyone to keep buying. I will not buy a thing until these issues are fixed. If they are not, I’ll find a new game to play. Do not download this game it’s a rip off.
Scam
by Mariiissaaaa on 2019/04/24 20:28
They offer packs for you to purchase. Next day they release something new which completely devalues what you purchased the day before. Customer service doesn’t help at all either.
Sad way to handle business
by KrackerJackKat on 2019/04/24 17:06
The developers of this game have no respect for the people who pay to play this game. You can spend money to get ahead in the game but within weeks those items are free to non players. The developers take away abilities and change statistics on a regular basis. When contacting developers about missing items or stats, you receive a standard form letter, but nothing is returned or changed. The prizes obtained during play are completely outdated for the age of the realm. This game is a lawsuit waiting to happen. It had potential, but it needed someone more than a child as a developer to manage the business.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD
by Alisgravenil on 2019/04/24 16:55
This game is a rip off. Do not get sucked in (because you will). They gave select players a free pack with massive content and have done nothing to fix it. But honestly at this point there is no fixing what has been done. Any money spent in the game was a waste. Even if they give to everyone it will be like starting at the beginning and any paid content for an advantage is gone.
Don’t Fall Into the MZ/Epic Trap
by MommaSmarg on 2019/04/24 16:09
Never again will I ever play a game released by this company. While there are some great aspects to this game (great people you get to know being top of the list), the negatives just outweigh all the good. My guildmates and I have decided to move our entire guild to another game by another developer because we like each other but have lost all interest in playing this game. The devs have set you up for failure if you are not independently wealthy. I know many people who have spent thousands (yes thousands) of dollars on game packs only to have their empires still fall behind when the devs pull an “oops” and release unlimited resources to a few select players and not to the general player population. Today a select few players received so many free items (yep free. No request for said items. No pack purchased.) they were able to skyrocket their power and become completely unstoppable, creating the biggest gameplay disadvantage I have ever seen. The devs refuse to respond to most messages and give canned auto responses 90% of the time they do bother to respond. The few who did receive a response to today’s latest incident were basically told. “Whoopsie! Didn’t mean to send out all that stuff. Sorry but not really going to do anything to make it better.” If you have unlimited resources to invest (both time & money) then this is the game for you. If not, look elsewhere. This game is a class action lawsuit waiting to happen.
If I could give them less than 1 star I would
by SnowyDear on 2019/04/24 15:59
I have been playing this game for over one year now. And until recently I have enjoyed it. However, recent developments have turned me off of this game, and I am not alone. The developers of Final Fantasy XV, in the last 24 hours have made it impossible to play this game. A select few were given a huge advantage by the developers. This advantage has all but destroyed the balance in the game and many players are quitting. Save your time and money. Do not bother downloading this game. It will be a huge disappointment
Waste of time and money!
by Kareyann on 2019/04/24 14:34
It's a fun game to waste time. After investing hundreds of dollars in this game to buy upgrade pack. The game was reset last week to include a dark world which after working hard to progress and get a maximum citadel level my account is now useless.
Horrible CS , pay to win , pay to keep up.
by Billy TCAM driver on 2019/04/24 08:25
You will quickly realize that if you don’t get an in app purchase you will be destroyed every day. You make some friends and buy the $4.99 pack turns out your still getting destroyed. You get the $19.99 pack still not strong enough. If your lucky you quit at this point. If your hooked and get the $99.99 pack you’ll find it was misleading, and you need another one to achieve anything. CS will reply with a script. You will need one of these packs weekly to be anything more than fodder. Then they will release things constantly that will obsolete your entire investment. When these releases come out 3 or more packs will be needed to compete($300) This is a cycle that never ends. Then just recently they reset the entire game . Every $ spent was for nothing . Quit or start over ? They don’t care.
Not worth the $$$
by NotSatisfied2019 on 2019/04/24 04:23
I’ve spent over $5k on this game and every time I think I’m making gains the devs move the goalpost and only more $$$ gets you ahead... unless you have $10k to $20k to throw away... It’s your call...
Worst Game EVER!!!
by BoomBoom831 on 2019/04/24 03:31
Don’t even think of starting!!! Any money you put in to this game will be a waste!!! They will scam you with deceptive advertising!!! If you think you bought that amazing pack you are wrong!!! They will just take back that great item and say it was a typo and they didn’t really mean to have that much inside the pack!!! 😂😂😂 if you think they will refund your money guess again... they don’t EVER give you back!!! And the final draw is when they reset the game and say they want to rebalance the game... all that money you put in and all the work you out into your account just went poof!!! This is the same Method of Scam they did with GoW and MS!!! Don’t ever play any games made by this Developer!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
Worst scam game over
by BUD L0VE on 2019/04/24 01:36
This game is a scam people spent thousands of dollars on this game and they reset the game and make you have to buy there new dark troops and everything you spent money on before is useless now cause they over powered these new troops this in the most wasted money on game and scam the developers are evil gold digging people
oof it’s a pay to play
by Koji.ren on 2019/04/24 01:13
If you want to grow, you have to pay. This could be a great game but it $100.00 for each pack.🤦🏼‍♀️
Game updates and changes
by So Icy Icyss on 2019/04/23 22:23
Honestly I’ve been playing for about 2 years now and every thing has changed. Spend money to be stronger and it makes more stronger troops that no one can build or figure out how to build. And now all the money you did spend to be great is now. A waste because even a level 99 is weak
Dark world
by muertos187 on 2019/04/23 17:19
They just did an update and all players are at same level. The customer service is very very bad. The game is only good if you don’t spend money on it.
Game was great. Now the developers have ruined it.
by TheCHAMPizHERE on 2019/04/23 06:43
The developers of the game are modern morons. They have created a great game I’ll give them that. But they’re marketing schemes and support team is filled with people who don’t give a care in the world for the players that foot there bills. This is a pay to play game. Don’t be fooled and think you can skate by without spending. You can’t. To be competitive you have to spend consistently and constantly. As a player I’m ok with that. What I’m not ok with is the money grab we just experienced in the game. The developers sped up and gave us tons of content at a high cost and we all bought into it. Every day every week every month whatever it was we bought it. Now this game is just another version of game of war. Just a different skin. MZ is the company behind the game. After we bought all this content the developers took all our money and threw it in the garbage by doing a complete game reset. They basically created troops that you must buy to survive and made none of our current boosts applicable to the new troops. This is the kind of bs that we players have to deal with. In many other similar games the developers don’t engage in this kind of thievery. Only MZ is known to do this. They did in GOW and now FFXV. It’s disgusting how they rushed out material and then made that same material worthless in less than a couple short months. My advise to you is DO NOT PLAY this game. Find something else to sink your teeth into. This game is nothing but an endless money grab And the developers are full blown idiots. They don’t hold themselves accountable or even think about the players at all. We are just dollar signs to them. Now if you look at some of these reviews we as players truly believe the developers have people that bury negative reviews with positive ones because every server is mostly dead due to the fact they screw us over so much. So please pick another game. These developers are worthless and will stop at nothing to get the last dollar out of your wallet. -theCHAMPizHERE
Rip off
by Dr Lecter73 on 2019/04/23 02:06
This game used to be fun. Expensive to play but that is part of this type of game. This company has made millions off of the people and because they couldn’t fix a balancing issue, they have basically reset the game. Which means that all the money that people have spent, myself included, has been a waste. My empire is useless. Everything I have purchased to build my empire is useless. Troops, monsters etc. useless. Not good business practice to take advantage of loyal customers, who have spent the money they have worked hard to earn, on your game. I don’t recommend this game to anyone.
Not one more penny
by Wiinniii on 2019/04/22 10:02
Do not play this game unless money is no object. The developers have gotten many people in and spent some money. Every week is a new gimmick. Game is now only pay to play. I refuse to put one more cent in!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bait and switch
by Harps465 on 2019/04/22 07:47
If you’re going to play this game be warned. You need to make purchases often to be competitive. If you’re looking at being a top dog it’s going to cost you in excess of $10,000. Not a joke or exaggeration but with that being said it is a complete bait and switch in my opinion. Been playing for over a year and finally got competitive and they just started a new game over the old one. All the time spent can now be done with one purchase and everything done before January 2019 is now useless. This change is horrible and most of the players are quitting the game because of it.
Wishing I could get back my last 10 months
by Bball4586 on 2019/04/22 03:55
So I’ve been playing this game for about 10 months. I’m currently a citadel level 72. So obviously I spend. Yes, this is a pay to play game. So if you wanna stay competitive, get ready to spend. $100 a pack. The spending I was ok with. I set a budget. And no I was never the strongest in my realm, but I was up there. And being in the top guild, made it more fun. The people I’ve met and friendships made has made the money worth it. Because honestly, it can be fun. This issue I have and the reason I gave this game 1 star is about 1 week ago they opened up levels 71-80. Until that time we had been capped at cit70. Well a few days later they offered an “instant pack” to only a select few. (I didn’t get the offer to buy that pack as did many others) This pack shot people to c80 with all research done. All heroes unlocked and leveled to 200 (even tho the levels were only unlocked to 150 for everyone else), all legendary gear, top gems for gear, and god knows what else. And all of a sudden, I go from being a top 10 player to not even in the top 20. And people who don’t even come close to spending what I spent have 10 bil more power than me with one $50 pack. It’s a slap in the face. And customer support does nothing to help but send you generic copy and pasted replies to your mails. I never got the offer for that pack. The game offers you different stuff than others. There’s no fair play if you can get the same stuff others are offered. The only reason I am still playing the game is because of the friendships I’ve made. But I’m close to hitting the delete button. The devs screwed me out of a ton of money and if I could I would demand a refund. But.. I’m convinced the game support line is an automated response system. And MZ just cares about money.

Censorship and Unfair Business Practices
by jwklin on 2019/04/20 23:35
Do not download this game. Like many games like this it is free to download but to be effective in the game you need to pay. That is not why I gave it 1 star though. Play to win isn’t on heard of. I knew what I was getting into. I gave it 1 star because of the way they design the pay to win and because they censor the players chats. The game has gotten so greedy and aggressive with new features and items that you have to buy that you can be a top 10 player in your realm after spending a ton of money and time but the next day a new item can come out and you’ll be weak. It creates a system where you have to spend $100 a week to stay relevant. As players began to protest this behavior we noticed that posts that say “censorship” or “protest” for example will not go through. You have to put an extra space somewhere between the word. Furthermore the packs are designed to be misleading. An example of this would be selling a boost “x2” but the boost only applying once because they can’t be doubled. This developer is shady. Do not support them.
The developers are greedy
by TheGrimReaps on 2019/04/20 23:28
So I've been playing for almost a year and although it can be expensive to play at times...at time I spent to get stuff. Just recently...they released a pack offer that allowed people to get to my level in an instant...without having to do the work or put in the time. It was an absolute slap in the face for everyone who has been in the game for a while. They get more and more greedy ever week it seems. Don't waste your time with downloading this game. If you can't devote 8 hours per day to playing you'll never get anywhere.

by Lump of FSF on 2019/04/20 22:34
The game is enjoyable and the community can make the game great, but this company has absolutely awful customer service and consistently sends copy/paste responses to any contact. The entire interaction with customer service is about as productive as playing the song that never ends...its always just the same ok song and dance with them. Lately customer service and sales seem to have ignited the passion behind players that put this game upon a platform, and by igniting passion it’s for all the wrong reasons. The questionable item sales, without consistent quality content rollout has the ability to make the game stale. When the game has been contacted...customer service copy and pasted the same response but hey! They appreciate their customers because they wrote it in their emails.

by mhah03 on 2019/04/20 17:47
$100 for every pack til citadel 70 then they offer certain players one $100 pack and they can go from a citadel 50 to citadel 80. Total scam and a waste of time and money.DO MZ CARE ABOUT LOYAL PLAYERS NO Because they offer instant gratification packs to a limited few which give those players instant upgrades to everything the rest of us have worked for and paid for, Not only that, these packs give a lucky few instant access to high level heroes and items that are capped or not even available for all other players in the game! So those who were top in leaderboard are now over shadowed by players with billions in power. Is this fair? NO. Is this good customer service? NO Is the rote response from their Customer service team helpful? NO Do they care? NO MZ management, look at your complaints go up, while your sales go down as frustrated players boycott until you resolve this. It’s not a hard ask, just make the instant gratification pack available to all. After all your rote email responses say ‘we value your relationship with us’. SO NOW PROVE IT!
Absolute scam
by Dimkaetgd on 2019/04/20 17:08
I have been playing over a year. If you ready that the developers make your money spent in 0 value next day go for it. Learned my lesson hard way and quit. You will not have fun without spending. Spending will give you fun for a few days and soon they give away for free what you bought. Enjoy
Problem
by litcat59 on 2019/04/20 15:30
Fix: build speed can be researched at level 8 academy (or whatever) but requires 3 level six upgrades. Those upgrades require academy level 10 to even get to the 5th upgrade of them plz lower so I can properly research the build speed upgrade. Thanks!
Game is bs
by jfj jdkxksic on 2019/04/20 15:25
You don’t get rewarded from the events. I win third place and was entitled to a bunch of awards, gear, chests and 15,000 gold. None of which I got for slaying an event out of hundreds of thousands of players. Plus it kills your battery really fast on your phone whether you’re playing the game or not. I am deleting the game!
It doesn’t cater to people with big pockets
by Killer cjb on 2019/04/20 10:16
Hey you can spend like a couple hundred dollars and they will sell something amazing to someone who has very little later in the game so that you even if you don’t have money and someone else who spend thousands or millions you can beat. I would spend no more than 500 hundred dollars a year on this game if you want to spend that.
Pay to play and vast difference in rewards for same work
by Grimnr lil odin on 2019/04/19 19:44
The game play is wonderful but customer service is abysmal. It takes a week or so to receive responses for issues and when they do respond it’s a copy and paste message saying they received your complaint yet will do absolutely nothing to fix it or compensate you for the issue. However the game is definitely geared to the pay tons to play gamers. For the free to play people, be aware that there are vast differences in the rewards for doing quests. The customer support people will try to tell you it’s because the events are bracketed. None of them seem capable of comprehending that the reward differences are amongst people within the same tier brackets. For example, a guildmate and I do the same event. Both require the same amount of work to achieve the same tier 3 rewards. His tier 3 rewards were 14000 hero medals. Mine was 300 hero medals. CUSTOMER SUPPORT SENDS COPY AND PASTE MESSAGES KINDLY TELLING YOU THEY DONT CARE AND WILL NOT ADJUST THE REWARDS RECEIVED TO BE EQUAL. this is done in order to be “fair”. How does that make sense? we did the same amount of work taking about three hours and to achieve the same amount of points to receive vast differences in rewards. How apple allows this game to continue these practices is beyond me.
Fun Game, but Hard to Progress
by GabzyLizard on 2019/04/19 15:50
This game has wonderful graphics, a fun concept, and enjoyable empire building. However, attacks from other players are very frequent and can destroy just about everything you’ve built up. There is no barrier between new players and people who’ve had the game for months/years and likely spent a lot of money to get extra power. If there weren’t raids, I would love it. Unfortunately there is no option to be a peaceful empire. I know a lot of people like the warring concept, but again, it’s hard when all your attackers are so high up in level. Even when my defenses were maxed out (which could take days to achieve) I would get attacked and all my soldiers were killed. And then somehow my hero got captured while I was harmlessly collecting food from a resource tile! I thought heroes could only be captured when you were the one doing the raiding on another empire, but that was wrong. At that point I deleted the game, it just wasn’t fun anymore.
Glitchy software that developers won’t address.
by Capt. Harris on 2019/04/19 08:18
We had a “Realm Boss” event that had prizes and a title of “Monster Hunter Gold Medalist” that came with several great bonuses. Many players competed and many players paid real money for in-game items to help them win the title and prizes. At the end of the event no prizes or titles were issued. Many players including myself opened trouble tickets (12482619). The developers refuse to acknowledge any problems, and will not fix many known issues with its glitchy software. Total refusal to admit any problems so that they can close all trouble tickets without fixing a thing. Very sad, many good people playing this game and no support from the developers making all the money. They just collect the money and laugh at the players who spend hard earned dollars on their glitch filled app.
Support is pathetic
by Doooonnnne on 2019/04/17 23:48
Tons of glitches, false advertising with their sales packs, game regularly crashes and chat messages go undelivered on a regular basis. And did I mention that support is pathetic. When issues occur and support is contacted players are treated completely different. Some receive assistance and others don’t. Very frustrating when an error in the game costs you money and they refuse to assist you, when your guild mates have encountered identical situation and have been fully compensated.
Stay Away
by Cbkr1047 on 2019/04/17 18:31
This game can be fun for a short amount of time, but you either have to spend money to stay competitive or be eliminated and quit by those that do spend money. Their service support is the absolute worst. Please stay away at all costs.
Don’t waste your time
by inta_TOG on 2019/04/17 14:31
This game is an absolute waste of time. Unless you are constantly buying packs, you will never get far. In the “Wealthy World” Realm, if you’re not in DLY or VH8 guilds you are a constant target. In the beginning you’re offered a $5 pack to get you going. If you buy the $20 pack, you’ll never see a pack under $50 again. The packs are absolute trash too! For a $99 they offer a person who’s played for months they’ll offer a new player almost the exact same thing for $5. They also do not offer all of the same packs to people giving select players HUGE boosts and it utterly throws off any type of fair playing field. If you have a dedicated CC to this game with a $100k spending limit you’ll keep up but if you’re free to play or even spend a few bucks here or there, and not in one of the guilds mentioned above, you’ll just be their farm. The games plus side is meeting a lot of nice ppl but for the time and energy put into it, it’s really just not worth it.
This Game was so great
by King of Boom on 2019/04/16 14:49
They completely ruined it by putting out new pay to play updates every three days. Like all of these games to be at the top you have to pay which most people who play these games already know. For a long while there were updates maybe once a month a new merc maybe some new gear but the devs have become greedy. Most of the people have stepped away from the game because it’s just too much too fast. In January they came out with new gear which was just a weapon the destiny sword. A lot of the big players spent between 800-1200 to get this weapon and level it up. A couple weeks later they started dropping the other pieces the helmet boots and so on. People wound up spending a ton of cash on all this gear especially when primal version of it came out and to upgrade the gear set. After people have blown through thousands getting this gear leveled they turn around and drop gear sets that make the gear irrelevant for the low price of 200. With the purchase of two packs my stats went from 4 mil attack to 26 mil. This was just a slap in the face and even the biggest whales started to quit the game. Not to mention the constant hero level upgrading realm boss and moogle multipliers which are only good for a week or so new buildings new research new asteral levels new oracle boosts.... the list keeps going. To put it simply there are plenty of 100k accounts in this game that are sitting empty and are completely useless. The devs are predatory and have no desire to have your account hold any value. Like I said there are 100k accounts that I wouldn’t buy for 100 dollars. It’s sad because I have made a lot of friends playing this game and the community is great but I can not waste anymore money on this game it’s a black hole for my bank account and it will be for you too.

by Playermama1 on 2019/04/15 23:08
Keep playing console Final Fantasy. Developers are horrible. The customer service is disgusting. They won’t fix anything they are clearly in wrong for. Will switch packs up on you and not give you items you paid for. Don’t waste your time or money with it. Not worth the investment.
All they want to do is sell stuff
by memgal on 2019/04/14 19:27
This could have been such a great game..everything and I mean everything has been monetized...you will have to fork over BIG dollars to play. Starts at 4.99 ..not bad but then goes tom49.99 and them 99.99 US..all new features have to be bought or you will just be food for bigger players. Developers dont work on content..just new items buildings and features to sell..the original games were outstanding..this...well. You’ve been warned
Better have deep pockets
by 1736372728 on 2019/04/14 14:33
The game is fun, and when you start out they give you a few items to help you out. The game revolves around upgrading your empire and in order to protect it and become powerful you will need to spend real money. The first few pay upgrades are reasonable I think the first is $30 and the second is around $50, but after that everything else you purchase is $100. You can maybe make it to level 25-30 without a purchase but you will need to find a good guild that has members with deep pockets. There are constantly people quitting the game who have spent upwards of $3000 from my guild because they just get slaughtered by people with unlimited cash flow. You can protect your empire with bubbles but the game only gives you a small amount, the rest come from purchasing upgrades or competing in events, but you need to be powerful to compete in most of them. The first thing that happens whenever you open the game before you can do anything is a screen with “special offers” all at the low price of $100. This game could be fun, and most people stick around for the guild chats, but the developers are so ridiculously greedy that all they want you to do is hit the pay button and you need to pay if you want to stand your ground.
Playing for 12 months now
by BigDCuz on 2019/04/14 13:47
The game itself is fun, the detail is amazing and the app itself runs semi smoothly depending on what’s going on. The main reason for 1 star is because of the greed of the developer. The terrible customer service, and the overall lack of care from the developer itself. If something goes wrong/glitches don’t even bother to contact them, they will give you a canned response with no actual answer to your question. Even if things relevant to the game they give poor answers on. The game is fun if you get friends in it and can depend on them to help you grow, the defense/offense is a fun portion to learn, and the gear can really change the game, with all that being said, it costs a lot of money to stay current/keep up with the rest of the realm you’re in. Every realm has mega spenders and unless you have “30k is petty cash to me” mentality, it will certainly be painful to grow. In general this game is okay, it could be better, with a better support platform and a “let’s stop being so greedy” attitude would be nice. Other games don’t expect you to max out a credit card or spend your savings, this one does. Btw nothing advertised in the pictures actually happen on the game.
This game is garbage and a giant scam. Beware
by oRoBoTo on 2019/04/13 14:03
Watch out for this one. First of all it will cost you hundreds to thousands to play and receive any enjoyment out of it. This is a blatant rip of of another crap app named empires. Basically they just too the game and re skinned it with final fantasy esque graphics and names. The devs don’t give a crap about screwing you and your game over for anyway they can squeeze out another 100 bucks. If you contact support they usually will only send you a non canned response if you make their spending requirement for their “Platinum service and support” To acquire this you must spend a bunch of money weekly. Thousands. Their loot boxes and percentages in the game are never correct. When questioned you will be told that “The math used in the game is very advanced and you might not understand the end results.” That heavily includes the things you bought not giving the stats you payed for. But wait there’s more! After playing for two years they’ll just release a pack for $49.00 to catch people up to the level you spent so much for. Devaluing all your work and money. Just trying to get you and other to plow twice as much in because the game is slowly dying. Also look at the positive reviews that don’t make any sense. This is definitely the developer trying to out rate their negative reviews.
Awful game

I’ve had a better experience getting kicked in the nuts

These people are the greediest if the greedy. I’d spit speaking their name, but This cottonmouth won’t let me. Epically the worst direction a seasoned brand could ever take: Straight down.
So glitchy
by Jason Allen Edwards on 2019/04/11 00:31
It says I need to update it but it has no options (fix your game then I'll play again)
Single worst game I have ever played
by corbo46 on 2019/04/10 13:04
I have played a few of these “build your empire games” and there are ones that I was playing 4 years ago that looked and played 1000 times better than this one.
HUGE SCAM
by VegasBoi011 on 2019/04/09 13:41
This game is a huge scam PLEASE BE AWARE !!!! Developers throwing events that are impossible to finish without buying packs ($99.99). Once you buy items needed for your empire to grow,next day they will release new items that will make your purchase worthless, so in order to attack or defend yourself you need to buy more packs!! Costumer service is simply HORRIBLE!!!! Automated answers from bots, it takes days and days to hear respond and issues are NEVER resolved! DO NOT FOOL YOURSELF to even try this game! It’s a huge scam that will only ask for your money!!!

This is nothing but fraud. Do not waste your time or money. All of their content be removed from app store and never allowed back.
Pay to win extreme
by Ssf720 on 2019/04/07 17:52
So I have been playing this game for a while and I realized that they purposely make cash cows spend a bunch so that they can strike down others and bully them. This game is entirely a pay to win and I have spent of $300 in hopes to catch up, but I just couldn’t. This game I recommend u stay away from if you want to keep your wallet and not waste a bunch of time Frustrated Player MeltedCookie
Worst game ever
by ann0yed12 on 2019/04/07 17:17
1 star in honor of all the people playing free-to-play app games that are forced to sit through your horrible ads on every game.
Deceitful
by Skettiboy on 2019/04/07 15:25
Not clear with explanation on some purchases. I bought a pack unaware that a boost would not stack and it was not mentioned in description. Contacted team member for assistance with no reimbursement in game or otherwise. Keep in mind I am paying for fake game gold.
So, so, so, so bad, I can’t believe it!!!
by dhxejx on 2019/04/07 01:47
This game is so bad and it keep ask for money, this is a pice of garbage, I don’t even want to gave one star!!!
Fun but time consuming
by Nono1253 on 2019/04/06 19:57
Fun game but more time consuming than it seems at first look. You’ll enjoy it if you like base builder games.
Not worth it
by kismoody on 2019/04/06 16:01
I love the people I’ve met in this game but the customer service leaves much to be desired. They never listen to their players on things that need changed. They claim it’s free but to keep up many expensive packs will be required or lots of protection barriers while you wait for the items to be devalued enough to be free. Don’t waste your money. Go play one of the cheaper versions of this game.
Just a money grab
by Xryceas on 2019/04/06 14:04
It’s awesome at first because of all the people and family you meet and make but then the developers just make it so that you can’t survive without spending a couple thousand a month just to survive.
Fun if P2W or expected to be bullied.
by Msdio on 2019/04/05 02:17
Lots of things to build and grow on. Addictive since you can really see results from growth, even though growth can take hours, and days at a time. This game encourages spending and bullying other players. There is pop-up ad for game packages every time you open the game. 1) Paying unlocks capabilities that are unmatched, in addition to resources. While the game tilts in favor of defense, due to limit on march size, one needs literally millions of troops to defend. And building aN army of millions take quite a bit of resources and time. Upper tier can kill lower tier easily, but doesn’t win if significantly outnumbered. If bullies are squatting near you, you basically can stop gathering or hunting for good. 2) Resource capacities are limited, yet research and building demand much more (>4x of capacities). One can’t grow resources beyond capacities. So other than paying, one would then have to a) have guild members supply resources, b) create farms (multiple accounts) to supply, or c) raid others regularly, in order to keep growing. If you don’t want to get raided regularly when you first start building, and don’t want to pay much, the way to deter (not prevent) is to join an aggressive strong guild, since the guild would regularly raid others for fun or resources. This game encourages players, unless they pay up, to raid and bully others on a regular basis to keep growing. If you are reading to see if you want to start, I’d recommend you first get a proper expectation of how much you are ok to spend ($5, $20, $100, $1000, etc.; packages start with $5 and $20 for the first 2, then stay at $50, $100 a pop), and how ok you will feel after getting raided, perhaps regularly. Otherwise, you will be upset, and disappointed. Think about what you may get for $500. It can empower you to be somewhat competitive in the game (you will still be harassed from time to time). It can also be your monthly grocery, rent, card debt, loan or car payment, iPhone, Apple Watch, PS4 Pro + games, Xbox One, gym membership for the year, or gas money. Which would you rather have?
Scam
by cannaliving on 2019/04/04 12:30
I purchased an instant 80 all building pack. Developers falsely advertised game packages that did not contain what was promised. I’m filing a complaint and suit. Even with a receipt and proof of purchase including SCREENSHOTS! Be ware they are liars and thieves. The staff that works there do not speak English and cannot help you
Nice
by MoodyJeex on 2019/04/04 00:11
Real good game I like it
Don’t waste your time
by moose5780 on 2019/04/03 01:27
Pure pay to play. Event are rigged and don’t give honest prizes. App doesn’t offer fairly priced packs once you purchase one, price keeps going up and doesn’t offer you anything else. Someone spending 5$ can get the same pack as someone spending 100$ as long as you never spend top dollar. Don’t waste your time I’m sure there are plenty of games out there more worth your time and money. This is the exact same game, as the game of war that was around a few years ago. This game wants money for absolutely everything thing, YOU CANNOT COMPETE IF YoU DO NOT SPEND THOUSANDS!!!!! BEWARE!!!!!!!!
Game is an enormous money sink, crashes all the time.
by Lowfyr Darkpaws on 2019/04/02 18:29
This game is consummate pay to win. The only way to win is not to play.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD GAME FOR A REWARD
by ReturnOfRamfan on 2019/04/02 12:11
I downloaded this game to receive a reward in another game. Had to make a purchase to complete offer. Never got reward and Apple won’t refund purchase because they are fine with you being defrauded. Choose at your own risk
Nothing has changed
by Gidva04 on 2019/04/01 13:57
First I'll say this really is a great game if you enjoy meeting people from different walks of life. However, the game fosters a pay to play environment. If you have a bottomless credit card then you'll be at the top of the heap, many of whom terrorize those with limited funds because they can afford to do so. The rest either stay because they're in a guild that they enjoy or they leave due to total frustration of having to rebuild their empires after the bully attacks. The in app purchases discription below is very misleading. The only time a pack is $1.99 is when you make your first purchase. After that, the price goes up til it bottoms out $99.99/tax per pack! I'm sure this isn't gonna change since the money bags players keep buying those $100 packs, making this a multi billion dollar cash cow for the developers. So just be warned, if you're rich then you're golden but if not....well.....good luck!
Went downhill
by ImaSpiderTara on 2019/03/31 23:30
When this game started out it was so much fun, now even on iOS 12 the game takes forever to load images once logged in. The gameplay is not there and clearly most of the of guilds have disbanded and moved on. World chat is dead too. Please update this game to where it actually runs. It’s not fun anymore which is a shame because I made many friends here and now they moved on.

Too much to keep paying
by Shamaka on 2019/03/29 02:38
To continue to play this game they want you to pay your rent but can’t really advance and won’t even give you the exact items you purchase and yes I provided screenshots to Bubba on of the people that answers why didn’t I get what I paid for and takes more than 5 days to reply and only answers during the midnight hours don’t get addicted to this game you’ll lose your shirt just trying to level up
Predatory

This game is predatory and feeds on addictions. Stay away from it or you may find yourself bankrupt.
Inflation
by Sosolow on 2019/03/28 20:40
The game was good until the huge increases in attack power trying to cater to all the big spenders in game if you don’t plan on spending thousands of dollars to keep up don’t waste your time. They have totally cut out the casual players but only after they gave people fails hopes that gave any chance of defending 100 million troops from 1 million of someone willing to spend thousands no skill or strategy involved in this game anymore Best wishes to all that fall to there greed and unfair numbers
0% FF, 100% begging for money. Not fun!
by 5toneMan on 2019/03/28 19:16
I tried it. I gave it a shot. I spent $30 trying to enjoy this game and they NEVER give you anything for your money. And it’s not fun and if you loved the Final Fantasy series like I do you’ll wonder when we’ll around to seeing anything related to Final Fantasy. This is awful garbage created by people who never played Final Fantasy. Worse than one star
Not the game I was advertised
by Mrglfrgl on 2019/03/28 18:25
Why do games advertise as something completely different? Their advertisement set the expectation of a tower defense game. If you’re going to put a game out there, why not advertise it for what it really is?
Pay to glitch
by Sab1Bow on 2019/03/28 13:50
I have been playing this game a while, if you find a good guild you can enjoy the team. However, you WILL need to spend a few hundred dollars to even successfully attack bot tiles and that’s with doing hourly tasks. Forget attacking lower empires, their higher guild mates will level you in seconds. My guild mates and I have spent hundreds each and when the game glitches, customer service used to respond and help but now we’re now told from people like Leila “basic troubleshooting steps were not able to fix the issues you are having” and that it must be an error on your device. It’s probably old, the iOS not updated, memory or even an app update. After proving all these are not an issue, it then becomes a “delay on your device” They refuse to fix game glitches or compensate you in anyway.
Absolute Scam
by Briar511 on 2019/03/27 03:02
ETA: I’ve seen mention of VIP levels that will become available “soon” beyond the ten currently available. I still feel scammed since these only exist on one server, it seems, and the official site only lists the ten VIP I’m at now. Don’t advertise a pack on servers that can’t use it, that’s just bad business. I have no problem dropping some cash on a cell phone game I enjoy, so when I first saw the reviews about this costing money to play I shrugged it off. However, the first packs I bought were designed to let me bring up my VIP level quickly, as I wanted the perks. Max VIP level costs 2,000,000 points, it turns out. After buying that pack I have 88 items worth 1,000,000 VIP points each sitting in my inventory that I can’t use even to unlock VIP time because using two of them put me at max VIP level. They’ll sell you a pack that looks like a good deal but is garbage because you don’t need anywhere near all the items before you reach max and then there’s nothing you can do with them anymore. I made it to a citadel level 12 before I started getting hit by the bullies that have power levels in the millions compared to my 60k at the time. No wonder there are so many seeming abandoned low level structures. This game is a joke. I spent $60 on it and I’m strongly considering trying a charge back through PayPal since they sold me a bunch of items I actually can’t even use in obvious false advertisement that I needed all this to max out VIP.
Devs like to cheat
by Espresso96 on 2019/03/26 21:38
This game started off great until our realms first boss came around. After that event, random people were given millions of gold, including those who did not participate in said event, while those of us who did participate were screwed out of it, leaving us very far behind. The devs completely ignored two tickets I opened up in an attempt to contact them and were rude all the way through. It doesn’t matter if you’re pay to win, you won’t unless you’re favored by the devs. Don’t give this game any money!
Pay for play scam, obviously rigged
by CodeMonkey6981 on 2019/03/26 16:19
What a joke? I was starting to like this game, but everything has a ridiculous cost for everything. If you can’t pay to get more powerful, then you loose. They obviously employ people to build large guilds like “emperors of hell” and so forth to terrorize those without funds just so they will spend more money just to survive an attack or maybe win (not). Its bull. Not worth spending any more on this game. What crooks! I can see loosing a battle with small loss of spoils, but not in this game. You are screwed unless you spend money. Not fun at all. You just lost my business. 🖕🖕
Do NOT Spend money on this game!
by MikeyUchiha on 2019/03/26 16:16
I unfortunately made the investment of spending over $10,000 on this game to stay ahead and then they capped the level at 60. And people are able to catch up by spending about $400-$500 because they capped the level and on top of that they dramatically increase the drop rates of materials during events. Please don’t make the same mistake that I did.

Awesome potential with deplorable support and glitches
by Famfrenzy on 2019/03/26 07:40
This game originally has a great social and mobile war gaming aspect where guilds and individuals can work together and bond across countries throughout the world. Unfortunately, the many glitches in rewards; inaccurate descriptions of events and associated titles; extremely poor deployment order compared to older realms/servers; and frustrating, dispassionate, inept and condescending support personnel, causes too many people to quit and others to slowly taper off until they eventually seldom play. So many have invested great amounts of time, and most more money than others can imagine spending on a mobile game, that it is demoralizing to then be faced with those challenges listed above that could so easily be fixed and handled differently. As a guild leader in the game, it is unfortunate and frustrating to lose friends to these issues, and to experience the same decline myself. Many other reviews list the issues about the costs of the pay to play game, but while that is definitely an issue, being in the game having accepted that piece and competitively played for so long within it, just to be months and many $$ later constantly faced with glitches, support personnel issues, and deployments ordered in a way to make the game unplayable (due to it being too weighted for defense, and previously offense, to the point there is no war and RvRs are non-competitive), is infuriating. This game had such a potential to be fun, competitive, and rewarding for so many people. It’s unfortunate it has bombed after so many months of accepting the initial troubles and expenses, just to see it get so bad people cut losses, including $1000s, and lose a forum for friendships and competitive play.
Do not get trapped
by Littleleisl on 2019/03/26 07:08
This game teases you with a $4.99 pack. I thought ok that’s reasonable but next pack is $19.99 and then ready $99.99 and you really have to spend upwards of $5000. A week and at times just a couple days. Every time you get a building maxed they then decide to make you have to upgrade again now here is an example you’re merc pit could be maxed at 8 but then they make it so you have to upgrade or you can’t use it so you have to buy, and they’ll sell you a $99.99 pack that has 1500 prints to upgrade when it takes 300,000 prints, how many times $99.99 to actually upgrade one level. They do not give you what you pay for and they find a way to squeeze literally at least 10 things a day to make you spend on very rare occasions they offer a $49.99 packs. (I’ve seen 2 only recent) When you get to levels that you need certain things they give you bare minimum I’m level 86 I require “grandiose prints” they don’t offer packs with those prints. I’ve seriously spent in 1 yrs of playing over $15,000 at least. I can no longer afford anything they continue to add on it was level 80 was as high as you could go now it’s 100 every building has to be re maxed. The developers will never refund you and they treat you like garbage. I’m trying to find an entity to go to report them they take your money and don’t even deliver the goods. It is fun in social aspect but trust me if you don’t have the money don’t play the game. It’s become a pay to win game I spend my time in a barrier they used to give us one of those every 2 was or so they no longer give us anything we need. I can’t finish my economics research and sadly apple seems to be allowing this. I’d love to add an article that states in Nov alone they made 2 million real dollars per day. If you have any issues they do not help you at all in fact they actually call you liar etc. Play at your own financial peril and you’ll have to pay out the nose because most players are citadel 80 and you’re not safe even at high levels, it’s a war game
Clunky Pay to win game
by SadPettyOfficer on 2019/03/25 21:07
Too limited, people waste thousands of dollars to get ahead, ads are shoved down your throat every few seconds and every time you open the app, game burns your battery, slow army movement, and you can’t even play the minigames more than once a day.
Trash
by fluorescentbulbasaur on 2019/03/25 12:21
This game is garbage and Square Enix should compensate the true believers who spent money here assuming the FF XV brand meant something to them. Full screen in-app purchase ads (sometimes missing the close button for a few seconds) appear on launch (every single time) and ramp up to $99.99 after two purchases. Those $99.99 packs won’t even get you very far if you choose to spend—you’ll need to buy a couple a week if you wanna keep up.
Pay to win
by 00000000-000000p--0--oo---op-- on 2019/03/24 15:55
This is strictly a pay to win game for people who can spend thousands of dollars on playing. I would suggest you not get this game if you are not ready to spend a lot of money.
Scam
by Dfxfedd on 2019/03/23 16:19
This game is a scam. Packs are 100 dollars. You need like 10,000 dollars just to reach level 30 citadel. The players that wastes the most monry controls the realm. All other guilds will dissapear. Run away before you loose lots and lots of money.
Complete TRASH/GARBAGE
by Poop crap absolute trash b on 2019/03/23 14:34
I can literally see that you didn’t put ANY effort in this game, bad quality, nothing to do with the story. I am no judgements piece of CRAP but this is the worst game I’ve EVER played. SCAM and a WASTE OF TIME. This should be BANNED.
Purchase of Packs
by Jfowler71 on 2019/03/23 14:11
Be careful when purchasing packs. I’m still fighting with the developers and iTunes on a purchase I made within the last 2 weeks . Purchased a $99 pack and was charged for a $99 pack and a $19.99 pack. Received the $99 pack but not the $19.99 pack. Both are saying contact each other. After sending receipt of purchase ( both on same receipt) I’ve been told they are unable to find that purchase. So basically I’m out the $19.99 and the pack I was charged for. If it weren’t for the people that I play with I would have deleted this game.
Most expensive free to play game yet.
by KDramaQueen1 on 2019/03/23 12:54
Like most people I started playing to earn credits for another game that I played more actively. Reaching the required goal took a bit of time and I actually enjoyed building up my empire and became easily hooked. It’s been almost 2 years now and I am still playing but I’m about to retire from the game. It has become a money pit. I don’t mind spending money. I have actually dropped a lot more on this game than I would care to admit 😅 and for the most part have been satisfied with my progress but unfortunately this game and its excessive releases of pay to play content has sucked me dry. This game is no longer a battle of wits and strategy. This game has become a battle of the wallets and credit cards. This has taken all the fun out of the game. If this continues dedicated veteran players like myself will continue to leave the game... UPDATE: a ton of new content was released since I first wrote this review. The greedy developers won’t stop flooding the game with new content available for purchase only. Their constant grab for money is killing the game.
Don’t buy everything overpriced and still loose
by Classytinaa on 2019/03/23 05:25
Game that is just looking for what’s in your wallet, the developers don’t care and take away items you purchase. The only positive thing about the game is that you meet people. Stay far away or play but don’t buy.
Don’t play this
by JamesTaylorBlues on 2019/03/22 23:08
Addicting and fun at first but you need money to play and you can never pay enough. This game constantly asks for money and you will reach a point when you can’t progress without spending money. Once that happens you either get crushed everyday and have to rebuild or give in and start paying. The bundles first start at $5 (one time only) then $20 for your second time then $100 for the 3rd purchased and will never go back down below $100
RUNAWAY!!! Stop reading and run!!!!
by Strong24 on 2019/03/22 22:37
This game is great. And I mean great. When it first came out. And you could buy a pack or two here and there and stay competitive and relevant. Now they add in new stuff every single day. Not to mention if you do buy something they might say to hell with it and take away what you purchased. With zero recourse on them. Why should they care when they have that fortnite money. Here’s what I suggest. Play any other game that isn’t owned by mz or epic action.
Pay to play
by Cattlieysmommy on 2019/03/22 20:42
This is a pay to play game. The defense to offense ratio is very uneven and is just getting worse by the day. DON’T EVEN BOTHER PLAYING
Not paying to play... packs prices are consistently changing
by Baby1on1 on 2019/03/22 17:39
Was fun at first then the packs started ranging higher. No variety of different prices packs. When you get prompto hero you can’t us him if the hero is captured or banished so there is no point in having him. Don’t waste your time on the game
The game is awful
by playstrongplayhappy on 2019/03/22 15:46
The game used to be fun and competitive. Unfortunately the greed of Epic to squeeze very little dime out of players has made the game a waste of time. It is 100% pay to win. It is Not a strategy game, it is not a roll playing game it is a spend money to beat other players type game. Would not recommend to my worst enemy to get and play this game!
Money
by QUEENBEEBOOKER1 on 2019/03/21 16:24
My husband spends 400 to 700 a month on game every month. Well last week purchased 1 game pack and they charged him for two game packs and only got 1 and refused to give money back for one of them.
Worst money pit
by Pink723 on 2019/03/21 16:00
Free to download, continuous PAY to keep up. Worst SCAM game. Costs thousands to become functional, most spend thousands WEEKLY to stay relevant. New content is released daily now, no one can keep up. Power players are ripped off by buying packs that are bait and switch scams then quitting the game and selling their accounts. Multiple lawsuits filed in my own realm, I’m sure it’s happening on a multi realm level. Identical in gameplay and money pit scam as Game of War. Read most recent reviews, they are all identical and there are hundreds warning of same scam.
dont play
by rayhammond86 on 2019/03/21 08:03
the money you have to spend on game $5 $20 $50 $75 $100 packs with monthly $5 pack they allow racist and sexist players to play bcause they pay there bills to get to cit 30 you need to pay at least $1000 from cit 20 and new gems tyat give 2000% attack and 2000% defense make it so high lv players can hit lower destrot 509k to 1 million troops in 1 battle they just want your money
Could be great...
by Hollywood_Taz on 2017/11/19 20:01
To the developers of Final Fantasy: A New Empire and to all the future players, this game could be a great game to be a member of. Many of the players bond together to create guilds are filled with a great mix of players from around the world. These guilds work together to create an atmosphere of team work and camaraderie. The developers have done great work with providing excitement and challenges to keep the game relevant. There is one big problem with this game. The developers have created and fostered an a pay to play game that caters to those with an bottomless credit card. Where those with unlimited funds can purchase their way to be the most powerful of players. This gives those players the ability to terrorize those that do not have unlimited funds. When it takes a player a month or more to just gather the required material to upgrade one item in their empire to then lose it all each time just before they can complete the process, it can be very frustrating. Many players choose to leave the game at this point. The lower paying players have no recourse but to accept the fact that they will never get ahead in the game. If you are lucky enough get into a guild that fosters team work and fun you will find it more enjoyable. If you are a gamer with a endless supply of funds and wish to be a bully, you will go far in this game. Signed - Myst Warrior - player that has a little extra cash to spare.
Deceptive Marketing Ploy
by TasteMyAwesomeSauce on 2017/07/28 23:45
So being an FF fan I had to play this. Since it was a fresh game, it offered and once in a lifetime deal for $5. Played a little more, found interested players, so still on. I've never played MS or GoW but everyone in the game says it's the same. Because I don't play these games the experience is new and fun, but I can see how this can get old fast. Already having issues building because of bullies. Most players are cool. But there are a lot who are not. The main things tho, this game has very little to do with FF. Besides the Main character and the 5 Chocobos and 3 baby Chocobos that run around on your farm, there is nothing else related to FF. So kind of a double whammy there, little to do with FF and quick repetitiveness. If I didn't spend that $5 I probably would not still be playing...Oh well, just a little longer till it gets really boring I guess. UPDATE: I hate this game and the P2W players in it! After playing since the start, this game is extremely P2W! You get a couple people who spends a thousand on the game and that's it. They run the entire Realm. You can try to rally, but they will always just throw more cash at it during fights and that's it. There's no way to win, making the game utterly pointless as soon as they started playing. Plus getting merged ruined our Clan, we went from #9 to #50 overnight, without so much as a warning it was coming. Bottom line: if it's not made by SquareSoft, it's not really Final Fantasy!
Not that great
by Tia00 on 2017/10/03 16:49
Compared to base games like clash of queens and clash of clans , this game is literally trash. They give you one advanced teleport and a few name changers at the beginning and they leave you literally on your own. Resources are hard to come by at the beginning it seems you have to be mining for your life. The tax rate for your allies to send you resources is so high that you can't even get help from them or you both would be losing. Tax rates for sending resources starts from 50% and that's an utter disaster. Map Is confusing, you can teleport out of a hoard of noobs to only have more noobs teleporting around you, it's literally a disaster. You can't get anywhere in this game without investing money in it. You can't even view the strongest players or guild because they don't even have a ranking system and board as yet. I understand this game is fairly new but with this type of marketing they're doing you have to at least come a little clutch or lit before marketing like that. You're marketing is at 95% and then the product is at 10%. It actually feels like we are the beta testers. I've seen many games start out a little bad but this is the worst I've seen. The sad part is you guys don't even have a support button where you can take feedback from the players who know a thing or two about these type of games. Anyways I don't mind playing but come on. Handle your stuff guys. Could be a great game you guys gotta plan out the stuff a bit better and you'll be fine.
Pay To Win
by AllN1cknamesRTak3n on 2018/05/05 11:06
This game has a pretty simple set up. Build up buildings. Research different areas to increase all around stats. Hunt people or monsters. Join guilds and help each other out. Simple enough. Once you have this down, things can change quickly with a little money. This game allows you to increase buildings, build defenses, or research to better yourself, but at the cost of resources and real time. You can lower these by spending real money and purchasing “packs” that lower things by a specific percent. Unfortunately, eventhough you can reach 100%, it doesn’t actually give you it for free. An example would be if a building requires 24 hours to build, at 100%, it will still take around 7 hours to build. At which point you can purchase speed ups, to finish off this 7 hours. There are people who have spent well over $10,000 into this game, so unless you have the money, you will never catch up. I have spent $25 into this and am stuck at level 41 unless I buy packs that have what I need to continue upgrading. Packs- 1st pack $5. 2nd pack $20. 3rd pack and beyond are $99. They will have random ones pop up for $50 and $80, but they are random. My recommendation is to play the game to understand how it works, and if you do plan on spending money, buy someone’s account. There are plenty for sale that already have what you need and are high enough in level to prevent you from waiting to much to still lose, but feel like you can catch up.
Don't play unless you have money
by Shadowkaera on 2017/09/15 15:32
I started playing this game thinking it wasn't that bad. Building my empire was going smoothly, I found a nice guild to call home, and my power was going up at a decent pace. Soon after I realized that the only way to get anywhere in this game is to spend money. The time you need to wait for buildings to finish, troops to train, as well as time to research all increase exponentially. So unless your willing to spend money you'll be idleing for days or weeks. Also at some point during your time in this game someone in your realm, who probably spent hundreds if not thousands on this game, will continuously attack you and probably take on your entire guild. If you complain the devs will probably tell you that they know it's frustrating to continually be attacked my a stronger player and that there are strategies to beat even the strongest player. That strategy is to spend more money than the other. It takes 6-10 people at level 35+ to beat a single level 32. Most of the lower level people in my guild have quit playing because it's impossible to take on a single person that high if he keeps spending money to rebuild while getting attacked. The player that are stronger than can't fight back either unless they group together and keep attacking for hours to see who has the deeper pockets. So, all in all, unless it have to money to make yourself strong enough to not be bullied or harassed I do not recommend playing this game
I personally like it but it needs work
by caycay22222 on 2017/07/27 04:27
The realm merge completely screwed everyone up. Now a lot of stronger players completely obliterate weaker guilds. I'm on the strongest guild so I'm safe but it's easy to admit that this is a game where the richest people win. The amount of time and resources it takes to build becomes ridiculous after level ten. I'm talking weeks of real time waiting for a virtual building to construct. So what ends up happening is a bunch of people spend hundreds on packs and upgrade their empires and troops. I spend hours on this games and I'm only at 300k power. Another guy in my guild who started after me is at 22million power just because he spends money. There is no way anybody can beat someone with that amount, and with the time and resources it takes to build there is no way for people to catch up or even keep up. Just another money guzzling square Enix spinoff. And on top of that it glitches and has trouble loading with wifi, even though all my other apps and game systems can work just fine with out wifi. Sometimes I'll login and randomly be missing thousands of stats, or my guild mates will be marked as enemies, or my construction time won't load. Little things keep it from being a good game. I like the game a lot. But once I hit week long construction times I'll probably get board and move on to something better.
Absolute Scam
by Briar511 on 2019/03/27 03:02
ETA: I’ve seen mention of VIP levels that will become available “soon” beyond the ten currently available. I still feel scammed since these only exist on one server, it seems, and the official site only lists the ten VIP I’m at now. Don’t advertise a pack on servers that can’t use it, that’s just bad business. I have no problem dropping some cash on a cell phone game I enjoy, so when I first saw the reviews about this costing money to play I shrugged it off. However, the first packs I bought were designed to let me bring up my VIP level quickly, as I wanted the perks. Max VIP level costs 2,000,000 points, it turns out. After buying that pack I have 88 items worth 1,000,000 VIP points each sitting in my inventory that I can’t use even to unlock VIP time because using two of them put me at max VIP level. They’ll sell you a pack that looks like a good deal but is garbage because you don’t need anywhere near all the items before you reach max and then there’s nothing you can do with them anymore. I made it to a citadel level 12 before I started getting hit by the bullies that have power levels in the millions compared to my 60k at the time. No wonder there are so many seeming abandoned low level structures. This game is a joke. I spent $60 on it and I’m strongly considering trying a charge back through PayPal since they sold me a bunch of items I actually can’t even use in obvious false advertisement that I needed all this to max out VIP.
No matching system = lopsided battles
by airlik on 2017/12/31 06:43
It was fun until I hit citadel level 10 or 11... suddenly people starting attacking me with level 4+ troops (you only have level 1 at my level), heroes at least 10 levels higher, and troop numbers 10x mine. I messaged one such person and said - is this how this works? You just crush people far weaker? Is that fun? The response was pretty typical... so I deleted the game. Could be fun, but really needs a matching system to make it so. Otherwise you get high enough to draw notice, then get stomped by losers who find easy battles amusing. That aside, the game would get 3 stars. It’s pretty involved and fun, if you like city building and tech advance mechanics. They have a pretty generous amount of speed-ups, in my experience, and it was just really getting interesting when I apparently got a target pasted on my city. What knocks it from 4 stars down to three in gameplay would be the heavy purchase pushing. Heavy, heavy pushing of in-app purchases. Like every time you launch the game there’s a splash screen for some $5 offer or other with a forced delay before being able to close it, and the whole time you play there’s a banner ad to buy gold. I understand these things take money to maintain, and I’ve spent accordingly on games I enjoy, but this was over-the-top, in-your-face pushing that detracted from gameplay and cost it a star.
Working as intended! Hahahahaha
by Nvmrukidding on 2019/01/11 00:21
Whether it is a problem with the purchase or a problem with an aspect of the game you will never get any sort of actual compensation from the company. The best they will ever do is make things about 25% right. They can implement a hot fix that takes away hundreds of dollars worth of your resources and they will never replace them. You can have gameplay issues that destroy substantial amounts of paid for merchandise and they will never help you. This is coming from someone that has played this game for a long time and spent a substantial amount of money playing it. If you ask him about a problem is they tell you everything is working as intended and never do anything to fix any of it. Every hour on the hour when the mini event changes The game crashes and it has been doing it for three or four months now. The March presets are terrible and you can’t customize them to actually do you any good. Half of the new things that they implement do not work right but if you mention it they don’t provide any sort of compensation they just tell you everything is working as intended. You can work for weeks on an event and half the realms get the prizes and the other half note. That was three weeks ago and they still haven’t given out what they were supposed to. This is the most awful dirt bag company of developers ever. I’m surprised square ENIX doesn’t pull their license
Disappointment
by Holly0127 on 2019/02/18 20:17
I’ve played this game since the beginning, loved it and supported it by buying the packs, but the longer i play the more disappointed i get. It’s a pretty much buy to play game, which I’ve known that from the beginning, but what you buy and thought was special, turns into a joke the next day or week. The things you work so hard for and bought is instantly gone the next moment with some ridiculous updates. Level 85 empire, you’d though your defenses were great with lots of mercenary guardians, millions of troops, high level heroes and lifetime boosts bought to defend your empire, but just from one hit, everything is gone. What is the point of me buying and playing if everything is lost in one hit. Makes me think it’s all a scam. The defenses and offenses in this game is so out of proportion, it hards to keep up. The only thing that i enjoyed all together was the chat functions, meeting new people and working together on events. The customer support initially were good, but then as the game progresses it has been a let down. Seem to be automated responds and no help in whatsoever. Sadly this will be my last time playing this game. So disappointed with it that I’ve given my account away. Forget about all the money I’ve spent for it to enjoy the game, it’s just not worth it anymore.
Fun when you can play for sure...
by Ambrai on 2017/12/08 11:10
As many of the other reviews state, this game encourages bottomless spending. You must join a guild to pass level 5 with your empire (you can leave again, but you will find others smooth the way a great deal). The game is geared to make it almost impossible to get by with a single account/empire. The initial players had to have waited years or paid hundreds of dollars trying to gain the resources to level skills (and the speed ups to hurry along the timers associated with building and researching). Monster Tactics 4 research was 64+ days and millions upon millions of resources. Without purchased speed ups and looted speed ups, the research would be ongoing still. Such is much of their tactics. Their math works oddly - a 50% off boost isn’t really 50% off (working as intended, not as advertised), so beware what you purchase or craft, and their bundles/packages are determinedly obscure in their descriptions of certain items, leaving you to guess or assume at their meaning. But, like so many games, the hope that the devs will hear and listen to the outcry instead of the cha-ching, has yet to happen. It can be fun. Just don’t expect that money grubbing aspect not to edge in sometime and spoil your view. Or the totally weird math if you can add, multiply, divide, or subtract, and have anyone else’s account to compare your numbers to.
Theives
by Dolle1L3 on 2018/07/05 12:13
This game has a lot of potential, but the developers are definitely in it for ALL the money. They gift you item unlocks, but then you have to spend real money for the item to do anything/upgrade. Resource and research/building requirements are on an hundreds of millions scale, sometimes venturing into the billions. After you reach about level 15, after they’ve suckered you in, thinking everything you need was available for free somewhere throughout the map, it becomes a world for the pay to players. And now that I have idiotically sunk hundreds of real, hard earned money into this game, they think they can get away with false advertising. They offer their packs (that *only* sell for 100$, and usually only offer one or 2 items of real consequence), then leave off items, and hope you don’t catch it. When confronted with screenshots or evidence that the item is missing, they claim there is nothing they can do, and cannot complete a refund because the package was delivered. I do not recommend this game unless you have A LOT of money to burn, and even then, I wish you wouldn’t just so they don’t get to keep raking in money they aren’t earning, but stealing... I would hope they’d see this and at least feel bad, but they don’t care, and it’s obvious by their shoddy, unorganized, non-functioning events and event items, among other things.. Yours Truly, Empire Leader, LisaPetey
Terrible developer support
by Kenny Price on 2018/05/17 12:47
The game is really fun and engaging at first. Then you get to a wall where progressing is extremely difficult and will literally take a year but wait! There is a $5 purchase that will take you to the next level! This is the early sign of how pay to win this game is. There is next to no strategy or competition if you play against another player who is spending money constantly. There are a lot of games that people say are pay to win but I assure you they have not yet played this game. To top it all of the developers will change game mechanics of certain troops after you have purchased a pack and they will do so without alerting anyone of game changes. This game has some of the worst tutorials or explanation I have seen in any game. After the first minor tutorial you are completely on your own to figure out how everything works. This can be fun as it’s like a puzzle. Only issue is as stated above the developers will change the mechanics of troops without any type of notification leaving you frustrated having wasted your precious resources on these useless troops. If you bring this to the developers attention don’t anticipate any type of help or explanation. They will basically tell you to screw off. To summarize this is the biggest pay to win game on the market with the greediest and least helpful developer support you will encounter
Potentially great
by Kaderin the Coldhearted on 2017/12/07 22:36
I love the people that play this game. Friendships have been fostered because of this game. I detest the way the developers made a great game that the only way you can “win” is to pay ridiculous sums of money. It’s disheartening. They’ve actually created a world that throws aside all the wonderful ness that the FF franchise has created and makes you bow to the almighty dollar. Players that spend ridiculous amounts are trapped in a realm where lower level players are and they have no choice but to attack people several (million) power levels less than them just to play and not be in FarmVille. I get tired of the “relax, it’s a war game mentality”. I’m a power player and even I can see the bullying that goes on in this game. It’s ridiculous. I’ve even had the “pleasure” of being told by some of these power players to sext them or burn. Well I can block their messages but I cannot escape their ganging up on me to destroy me. I just have to take the video game “gang bang” then rebuild with the help of my guild. Some people might wonder why I’m still playing after these comments. The truth is my guild is the only reason. I won’t leave them to burn or be harassed alone. I am a strong person IRL. A game will not break me. Hopefully the developers will actually start looking into the NUMEROUS emails they get about bullying and sexual harassment. I personally doubt it, but one can still hope.
Someone call the BBB
by Sephirah on 2018/05/13 23:36
This game is atrocious and the devs are the worst kind of people. Please heed the immense 1 star reviews and stay away from this game! Reading some of the 5 star reviews, I'm positive fake reviews are being posted because there is no way anyone who plays this game wouldnt call it a pay to play. You can't open the game without constant ads about "sales" where the package is 99 dollars. Do you know another game where the base price is 99 dollars? These people are criminals. How this game can possibly rate 4.2 is beyond me with all the one star reviews. It's shady at best. You start out in a new realm and quickly realize who the big spenders are because they already have 1 mil power and are terrorizing everyone. Then they merge your realm into an older one where there's huge fish in the pond and now there's nothing for you to do but roll over and die because if you happen to be smart and realize the game isn't worth 99 dollars let alone 10,000 dollars, you won't spend more than the 20 dollar deal they gave you after the 5 dollar deal. You'll hope they let the price come down again so you can try and compete but they won't, because it's not about the game, it's purely about the money. The big spenders rest on the delusion that their money had somehow made them important, completely unaware that they have been conned. It's sickening.
The cost of this game is daunting
by Windredone on 2018/02/21 15:13
The reason I rated this game so low is the cost of play. Sure you can get to level 15 without to much of a slow pace but from there on out it takes a lot of time or money to build a better empire and by a lot I mean $$$$. It starts low on cost oooh a $5 pack, once purchased those cheap little packs disappear and are replaced by $20. Ok, not great but you can swing that. Then those packs are nowhere to be seen once you purchase one. Then the packs increase again and again up to the final cost of $100 for a pack and trust me you will need them just for the ability to speed your knowledge and build which can once you get to a level 22+ can take not just days but weeks and even months to progress. And you will get stomped all over by those that have deep pockets and have no problem dropping a grand or more to be the best. Some areas of progress in the game require two to three $100 packs to get a select building in your empire to its top level. If you can’t at least drop $500 don’t even down load you will get extremely frustrated spend what you can on it then quit. The realms are a veritable wasteland of abandoned empires of frustrated players. So is the game free? Only the download!!!
If only I could give this app Zero Stars
by Wizdow on 2018/11/12 07:13
So this week Apple the Billionaires started a promotion for people to rank best applications so this company does the unthinkable they literally make up a sale 1.9 Trillion Platinum for $100 which is great in many people’s eyes then two days later they shrink their packages down too 16 Billion platinum making it impossible for those who didn’t have the spare cash on hand too catch up and if you happen to take two days off then you’ll be stuck with $25,000 bill too catch up and compete boycott this game until they treat everybody fair not just when they want positive ratings Realm Merges just like the very beginning erasing all stats and giving you not even 10% back on monster food saying that they encountered a glitch the list goes on and on that’s why many millionaires are leaving this application for good they see it for what it is now there hard earned money down the drain this company deserves bankruptcy mobile strike went down game of war went down this one will too because they scheming players constantly and expecting people to invest more money enough is enough your 16 Billion platinum packs isn’t worth 2 penny’s BOYCOTT seriously don’t waste money save the money for better game that actually treats all customers fairly and doesn’t try to rip people off constantly!
Better have deep pockets
by 1736372728 on 2019/04/14 14:33
The game is fun, and when you start out they give you a few items to help you out. The game revolves around upgrading your empire and in order to protect it and become powerful you will need to spend real money. The first few pay upgrades are reasonable I think the first is $30 and the second is around $50, but after that everything else you purchase is $100. You can maybe make it to level 25-30 without a purchase but you will need to find a good guild that has members with deep pockets. There are constantly people quitting the game who have spent upwards of $3000 from my guild because they just get slaughtered by people with unlimited cash flow. You can protect your empire with bubbles but the game only gives you a small amount, the rest come from purchasing upgrades or competing in events, but you need to be powerful to compete in most of them. The first thing that happens whenever you open the game before you can do anything is a screen with “special offers” all at the low price of $100. This game could be fun, and most people stick around for the guild chats, but the developers are so ridiculously greedy that all they want you to do is hit the pay button and you need to pay if you want to stand your ground.
All about the $$$
by >Mr.Jinx< on 2017/09/23 16:25
This game is fun and can be very addicting, but is a very simple pay to win game. I've seen other games like this one, but this puts the toppings on the cake. The realm vs realm event is literally only for people spend money on the game. About 80% of the events that go on you have to spend money, otherwise you won't get any rewards. The in-game loyalty purchases are a joke. The amount of time to wait to build and train is ridiculous. The only people who can control the crystal are the big money spenders and top players. Can you believe there are people who spent almost over a $1,000 on this game? Some high level players farm other players all day, if not, all week. It's quite frustrating for people who want to play, but simply can't due to big money spenders. There is no balanced realms or guilds during a guild kill event. The biggest guilds take on the lowest guilds of the realm and get all the goodies while the low level players get to watch and almost have no fun. Most players during the RVR event or guild kill event use their shield barriers because they have absolutely no chance against high level players. There is no material trading or gem trading. This game likes to take your money! Money hungry company that likes to take your money and obviously doesn't care about their players unless you pay to play.
Don’t waste your time and money on this app
by wish this game was better on 2018/05/21 13:29
The game itself like many empire building games is designed for you to build an empire but at each level you build up to they make it harder and harder to reach without spending huge amounts of money. Moreover, the amount you spend is dependent on what continent you live on apparently...where some people can spend what equals to $10 to $20 to get a package and others have to spend almost $100...doesn’t seem fair...then they encourage people to attack each other and take their resources and reduce their soldiers number forcing them to rebuild what they lost. Furthermore, as you move further up in level everything requires crazy amount of time to build or restructure for instance it took me 2,000 days to upgrade my capital to level 40. I had to use an astronomical number of speed ups to get my capital upgraded...my farms can never keep up with the food I need for my soldiers so my soldier numbers are too low to be competitive....and then they added scrolls and other crap you have to buy in order to upgrade and added new buildings you have to buy packages for before you can even use them and they love giving you locked chests that you cannot use unless you buy keys....don’t waste your time and money if you haven’t already added this app
They missed the mark
by Pharmerjon on 2018/01/14 17:04
I truly enjoy games like this. The issue I have with many of these types of games is they offer those with lots of extra money to spend on the game ways to dominate that regular players can’t match. Now, I have no problem with a game incentivizing those that can pay for extra power ups, but the games that really are meant for the players and not just for the profit of the designers, are those where you can get all of the big power ups eventually even if you don’t have a bottomless credit card. The real problem with this game in particular is that the increase the price of the offers each time you make a purchase. Then, they keep making new options that you must now pay through the nose to have access to. At $99 for each pack, the average player can’t compete. I enjoyed this game for the time I played. I got in with a great group that made the game fun...for a time. Eventually, if you can’t pay, you just can’t keep up and you become a liability for your team. I deleted the game today with sadness after I was asked to leave my group to make room for more powerful players. If you don’t have the extra $$, don’t bother with this game.
Love/hate
by wont let me submit on 2018/08/25 23:46
Did you love game of war? Well, you will hate this game. Upon appearance they are very similar. You’d think you were in the same game. Well then comes currency. Know how you could buy a gold pack and you could buy shields and ports and anti scout and VIP points. Now all based on Loyalty points. I know what you’re thinking, I had millions upon millions of loyalty in GOW. Well that’s because you could buy ports with gold and it didn’t cost you 150k loyalty for one. I mean, they offer ports in a $100 pack. You might get 10, but keep in mind those are for only in realm. You’ll have to purchase a whole separate pack for RVR ports of you wanna go over and participate. A friend of mine quit because she WANTED to buy rvr port packs but they wouldn’t come up for her. The point ratio is 5:1 for power destroyed if you’re in the opposing realm. She couldn’t get to it to play. Oh and then there is a troop limit. You can only build so many troops based on your citadel level. No more trapping, basically. I mean you could if you buy special packs that unlock certain troops etc. basically it’s a money pit and I never had a problem paying to play, but they really take it to you in this one. Please developers if you’re reading, let us purchase more than speeds and rss with gold.
Same s@&t, different game
by TheRailfan on 2017/12/27 05:26
When I first started seeing commercials for this game, it seemed a little familiar to me. I thought I’d try it out because it looked pretty awesome, and I’m always looking for new fun games. The developer name threw up another red flag however, so I did a little bit of research on Epic Action LLC. It didn’t take long to find that this was a reskinned Mobile Strike/Game of War. Epic War, Epic Action, MachineZone. All the same developers, just trying to mask their true identity to lure in unsuspecting customers. They even used the same ad format. It will only end like mobile strike did. For those unfamiliar with mobile strike, it starts out fun, but soon you can’t let go because of the investment of time, energy, and undoubtedly money. In a few months, you will either ruin your life, go bankrupt, or your state will die, as you spend days using 3MTTTTT day speed ups to research tier 50 troops and build a level 632 HQ. The joke was always “if it’s so bad, go play candy crush”, and quite frankly, you’re better off doing that, or anything else. Both I personally and others I know have nearly bankrupted themselves playing games made by MachineZone. Save yourself the trouble and money, and maybe a divorce, and go play a better game. The less they make, the sooner we can shut games like these down.
Stop the whining this game is great
by Watchman5773 on 2017/11/01 15:03
Been playing this game for a good month now. I’ve read how people say this game is a scam. It’s the furthest thing from it, however if you don’t like math, thinking or waiting and don’t want to spend to avoid that this game is not for you. Many have complained about stronger players stealing RSS they have bought with real money, those who lost that did that on their own. The game gives you a RSS page where items you buy are 100% safe unless you use more than you need and bring the resources into your empire for consumption. This game has a solid RPG character build system that makes it fun to grind that’s teamed with a flawless social interface. For those of us who spend money it takes simple reading, communication with advanced players and a bit of research to know how to get the best bang for your buck, if your into this type a game your here to do just that so jump in get your strategic mind set and have fun. Warning this game is not for the weak at heart, it’s a war game so expect ups and downs. Play smart and you can’t go wrong here.
No one rates this 5 stars- Devs need to get a clue
by CloudClimber on 2018/01/24 03:38
The biggest complaint everyone has with this game is the outrageous pay to win structure - $99 packs that you WILL NOT advance without buying after you purchase 1 $5 pack and one $20 pack. New packs and more powerful gear than the last gear you bought last week. EVERY SINGLE WEEK. New Item! $500 to upgrade said item. $100 to purchase it doesn’t cut it. We are in a realm where the largest player is 200,000,000 power above nearly all the rest in the realm- he has spent $20,000 on this game. There’s another guy nearly his size in the same guild and the whole guild is bigger than the rest of the realm combined. Read the rest of these reviews- any positive ones are paid reviewers, people enjoy so many aspects of this game but eventually quit because they can not play. Devs don’t get the concept of micro transactions and lose 100 players for every player that can afford to spend $200-$300 a week. That being said, I have spent over $3,000 on this game since September and I should be able to compete with that and would not be able to in any realm that I have seen so far. Each realm has multiple whales that can’t be beat even if the whole realm rallied them (quite seriously).
Fun at first, then a shameless money pit
by Silentkestrel on 2017/09/03 20:09
This is a game that begins quickly and can pull you in because it is fun and allows you to become involved with other players in your guild, allowing you to work together develop attack strategies and to become successful. Mildly attractive, it soon turns into a game where the richest people win and compete to get power ups that make them that much stronger. At $100 for an 'item back/boost,' the game gets super expensive, super quick. Anyone who wants to compete at the highest level is given no option but to pay the outrageous costs. If you don't pay, make no mistake, you will be left in the dust and your empire will be destroyed relentlessly by other guilds who have no problem paying. The game would be a lot more fun if they offered the random specials like 'Clash of Clans' or offered a chance for people who don't pay to earn powerful items and the power ups needed to win. It gets even worse when you begin to compete against other worlds. Be warned, it will be hard but fun at first but if you want to be competitive, you'll have to pay. The novelty of this game will wear off quickly if the developers do not do something about the outrageous expenses and give people who can't afford them the opportunity to earn items over time.
Have to purchase items weekly to advance!!
by Ryline on 2017/08/26 15:27
They force you to have to buy a "pack" with real money as it contains items that are not available anywhere else in the game. Once you make your purchase it seems that within a couple days to a week they roll out new required items, again only available in these "packs". Unfortunately this game is a 100% pay to play trap and you cannot earn most items by old fashioned hard/smart gaming. If they copy the same setup as in their previous games "Game of War" & "Mobile Strike" which appears they are identically doing so far. Then once you buy 1 or 2 $5 packs those disappear and then the next packs are $20 & $50. After you buy 1 or 2 of those you are then forced to have to purchase their $100 packs. If you don't then you are unable to keep up with the daily/weekly updates and cannot get new gear, level your buildings/troops, etc... Spending real money on games is fine, but they release so much new content so fast that you in turn have to financially commit to this game weekly. Once your forced to buy the $100 packs, then that turns into a nightmare leaving you with a dead outdated account if you don't keep spending. I love the Final Fantasy games & this company completely ruined it with greed. Good Luck everyone!!!
Worst money pit ever
by maxlightz on 2019/02/25 22:45
At every turn the game expects you to pay $100 for packs to continue normal gameplay and progress your empire. After 4 months your $100 purchase will not even advance you 1 level. Many players spend over $500 in a short time on this game. The developers have no shame in forcing the pay to win model on you. It’s not even pay to win. After level 30 it’s pay to play. You literally can’t advance without buying a pack. But be careful not to buy a pack by mistake. They won’t refund you. Which is hard to do because you get a forced popup ad for a pack literally every time you open the game. And the “buy” button on the pack is located in the same place as most of the in-game menu buttons. So it’s easy to click “buy” on accident. This happened to me the other day and I was careful to keep my thumb away from the home button so that it would not authorize. But the app was unresponsive. After several minutes I went to double click the home button to force quit the app. But at this exact moment the app responded and authorized my purchase. Total baloney! I am now forced to dispute this with my credit card company. In summary, never play this game. It will consume your life, your money, and leave you with nothing for your trouble.
Realm Merge ruined the game and wasted time and money
by p00nski on 2017/08/03 18:32
I started this game in a fresh realm and grew to become to strongest guild in our realm in 2 days. I was one of the top ranked people in the realm and decided to spend 5 dollars and then 20. Everyone else on the guild also followed that way we can stay ahead in the realm and everything was fine and dandy. We are making plans on getting the crystal when BAM. We are all merged into a new server. To put it into perspective, we were the top realm at 5million power just to be thrown into a realm next to a guy who single handedly had 4 times the power of our entire guild combined. Safe to say all of us got destroyed and there is no way to come back into the game. If we knew that we would be randomly merged into a server without warning then NONE of us would have spent a dime on this game. It's a ploy to make new people feel like they can get a head and then they dump you into a server to die and uninstall. Initially I enjoyed the game, but the server merge completed made our entire guild of around 80 people uninstall and quit. A good game should encourage long term stability and play, not random realm changes that literally ruin everything. It seems the developers don't care for their players and are just trying to make a quick buck. What a shame.
Pay to win then pay more
by IhateRovio on 2018/02/20 06:29
So I thought this game would be different than most others of its style. You build up your city someone comes along and is able to destroy it. That is not the case but it is. What they do is they have you buy a bunch of resources for five dollars. Then the next one is $20 you get a choice it’s $20. Then the next one is $100. People who spend $125 or more are very quickly four or more times larger than a free player. Once those players Who can afford to financially crush their opposition band together they then merge the rounds without prior warning so that he will have to spend more money to catch up with the new people in your room. Not only on do they receive the benefits of that wallet but they also receive benefits once they take the Crystal in the middle because they can give you negative bonus while giving themselves a positive bonus on top of spending their money. If you do not spend money you will never be able to compete with them even with a guild. I would highly recommend this game if you can afford to spend money like it is fair and do not have a family. Otherwise I would stay very far away from this business model.
Pay to win, devs don’t care
by Lethann on 2017/11/07 13:58
This game is Pay to Win. Period. All it takes is one person on your realm spending hundreds of dollars to get so far ahead then stomp over everyone else. There is even a title they can place on other players that makes their attack something like 5-10% lower and resource generation 10% lower. Our guild watched someone go from 16 to 20 in hours and the only possible way is spending major cash. They pay packages make it obvious that this is nothing but a cash grab game. No 99¢ packages. You get a single $5 package but once you buy it you only have $20 or more available. This game is obviously not developed by Square and was licensed by third party developers who just want a cash grab not a sustainable fun game for all players. If the pay packages didn’t exist or were smaller and less game breaking it would be balanced, but with them you might as not bother unless you have hundreds to spend. Maybe you get lucky and don’t have a “bully” on your server but that’s unlikely. There are even certain crafting things you only get if you buy the $100 packages. Totally broken!! Avoid this game at all costs. Don’t spend money on it. Complain to square. This is such a disappointment and a blight on the Final Fantasy name.
Too many glitches and problems for what it costs to play
by Raging Ravus on 2018/10/05 17:35
This game is nearly impossible to play for free and be able to compete against players that spend. I am one of the players who has spent a lot of money. I have played this game for over a year, and there has always been minor errors and glitches in the game. Three weeks ago, our realm was forced to merge with another realm of players. Since then, MZ has been unable to let me and other players use their expansion building content that we purchased for hundreds of dollars in multiple pack offers. We have been robbed of in-game boosts, important rare resources produced by these expansion buildings, and thousands of real world money spent for these expansions. After weeks of unanswered messages to customer support, nothing has been done to fix this problem. The developers continue to add new expansion content that requires more money to unlock, but yet they cannot apparently take any time to figure out why we cannot delete and rebuild our previously purchased expansion building content. The developers of this game and its customer support only care about lining their pockets with people’s money. They don’t care much for the actual gameplay or their customers playing the game.
Money Pit
by Forsaken13fox on 2018/05/26 06:35
This is a fun game when you first start. after you level up and progress further in the game it is impossible to keep growing unless you are willing to spend thousands of dollars. The available options to purchase for this game are $100 packages and nothing below that once you spend $5 once and $20 once. To be able to be competitive and not have your empire destroyed over and over is to spend a TON of money. All the new updates just keep the need to spend mass amounts of money going. The game has become a place to chat with friends more then it is to play with the issue of not being able to do anything. For example to upgrade one building your wait time will literally be 600 days which means you’ll have to wait almost 2 years for ONE building to upgrade oh unless you spend $100 to get speed ups and reduce the time and that’s just 1 out of around 30 buildings you can do the math. Same goes for leveling up characters, gear, research and so on. The game has become very repetitive and the developers don’t really fix any issues unless they see your a big spender you just get reply’s to your issue that are generic and not even on the same subject.
Dear developer.
by Szr101 on 2017/09/25 02:54
I have been playing this game and it's a joke. This is coming from a player that has ranked in multiple of your money scamming world events. The game is great, I have not bought a 100 dollar package yet. So it is possible to be good but after a while you hit a brick wall. In sorry to tell you that this game is not worth $100 dollars. When I can buy and play two platform games, or even four mobile games. I love the game, but come on I see a potential huge drop off of players within the coming months maybe even weeks. I know I'm getting frustrated that I have to spend a week to get enough resources to just research one item that I want. You charge us for stuff that is already given in other games. Most of them you can unlock a second build que for free if you work hard enough and save enough gold. Then one top of that your resource capacity is equal to only one day and 4 hours of resources. Sorry but most games have it at least at 24 hours of resources. I really enjoy this game so please do something or else I will just go to another affordable and player friendly mobile game.
The rate of progression is too slow
by Schmoopicus on 2019/02/12 13:59
I was tricked into playing this game for longer than I needed to. I started it through a Tapjoy offer, and tried to start 2 other offers on it considering the developers said nowhere you could stack offers. After playing more than I wanted to and being denied my rewards for the multiple offers, here’s what I think of the game itself: if you want to wait for outrageous amounts of time, this is the game for you! The resource gathering is so slow it’s painful. Specifically gathering stone. I had more quarry’s than any other buildings, and they were all upgraded. It was still my slowest resource, which is annoying considering you need it for pretty much EVERYTHING. There’s not enough actual gameplay with how much and how long you need to wait around for anything to happen. I forget what the area is called where you need ether, but it’s a useless mechanic of the game that should be trashed. It’s just there to grab cash. You can use it like twice at most a day unless you pay. This game is trash. Please don’t waste your time or money when there are games you c an actually play. This is a disgrace to the Final Fantasy series. Just go play one of the real games in the series instead of this pile.
Fun when it started, then reality set in
by CaseyHome2 on 2018/06/03 21:02
I enjoyed the game at the start. Even agreed to spend $5 and then $20 to ramp up my game quickly.. then I quickly realized that the game is nothing but a money grab, pay to play.. those willing to spend real cash money get all the resources, those without an unlimited wallet just get smashed. There’s no way to get ahead in the game if you don’t buy the $100 packs that they pop up in your face EVERY TIME you open the game. Ads for $100 packs are in every screen. They no longer offer reasonable prices if I would be willing to spend $20 to get another set of resources/speedups, etc.. no I have to spend $100, and if I don’t, I get destroyed by the other players that do spend the money.. last night I got invaded 26 times by a player 200 times stronger than me, just apparently because he enjoyed destroying/stealing all my resources, and killing every soldier I had. I was absolutely defenseless against him, and nothing I could do but take invasion after invasion setting my city on fire, because I’m unwilling to give the game developers $100 cash to try and get enough resources to defend myself.. what would be the point if I did? Someone else would just spend $100 more than me and destroy me anyway
Could be better
by 1MaMaVee ONLY on 2018/07/02 05:14
I love the people I have met in my guild and in the game itself. However, it has become frustrating. I’ve been playing since November 2017 and I’m ONLY citadel 31 (yes, I just ascended 🙄). Someone like me who is a stay at home mom can’t afford to buy packs at $100 every 30 minutes because a level 50 player has destroyed my empire continuously and sits in a hive for over a week hitting the same people daily. It’s hard to build and takes a massive mount of speed ups to do so. If packs were more affordable maybe it would be a little easier to purchase at times and cater to those who CANT afford to dish out $100 for every pack. Other than the money issue maybe they can do better with the amount of points required to reach tiers for rewards in events. Example: (specific)monster hunt tier 1- reach 10,500 points. I mean really. You’d have to purchase packs to upgrade hero just to keep hitting monsters to reach tier 1. Other than that. It’s a decent game to meet new people and have some fun, kill some time.

Overall good but..
by MimiHightopp on 2017/11/01 20:56
Overall this is a good game but there's a few things I'm not fond of. I wish there was a way for friends to be in the same realm without having to make their account for them for starters. There's also an abundance of people that clearly start the game and don't come back to it. I wish there was some way to get rid of the non active people as they just take up space. It's definitely a game you CAN play without paying, but it's easier to play if you pay. I wish there was a way to make collecting resources within the realm a bit faster. I also don't like that other empires can swoop in and get that last hit or two it takes to kill a monster when you've been working on it, because it takes a super long time for energy to build back up. I've pulled a few people into playing the game and they seem to like it, but have some of the same issues I do. The things I dislike are pretty common for these types of games, hence the four stars. They are all small in comparison to the good things.
A lot of fun for deep pockets.
by Spraggnasty on 2017/10/10 16:40
This game is almost worthless if you don't pay to play. I'm at citadel 27. I have 9million power. I have spent hundreds to get there, only to have the Realm versus Realm event come out and I can't even participate because I have to spend 100 dollars for the special teleports you need. At this point in the game the resource I need to progress can only be gained by spending more money. I've sent multiple tickets to the developers only to get cookie cutter responses, in which they basically tell me to spend more money. Then they come out with new events that you can only participate in by SPENDING MORE MONEY. It doesn't do any good to complain because for every complaint there is ten others spending money. This is a complete cash grab game. You have players that have spent thousands and they are the ones making the "rules" and have the power to completely ruin your empire and your experiences. Don't waste your time with this one. Go spend 10 bucks on the Final Fantasy 7 remake in the App Store and have a blast for days and days. Do not believe the ratings you see here. They have made fake accounts to give it five stars. It is not a five star game. Go and actually look at what people are saying.
Futile and Expensive
by Audio Purist on 2018/02/05 15:55
I’ve been playing this game for quite some time with two main and a large number of farm accounts. After spending a couple hundred dollars, I’m about ready to throw in the towel. Everything in this game is designed to cost major money. The first boost pack is $5. The next is $20. From then on, they’re $100. Once you spend $20 on one pack, that’s it...I think I’ve been offered one thing at $80, but that’s an aberration...The rest are $100. (I think it goes to $140 next!). Every new feature costs $100. If you want the more powerful troops, it’s $100. The new monsters are $100. Extra casino tokens are $100. Access to the new weapons forge costs $100. You want to be able to hit L4 monsters? Without speed-ups, it’s a 53 day waiting period AFTER paying roughly 500 million in resources. That many resources and speed ups will cost you...you guessed it...$100. And don’t even ask about getting L5 troops The top players spend many thousands on this game. If you’re independently wealthy and haven’t anything better to do, this game, like a heroin addiction, is a great way to fix your problem. If you’re a normal person, don’t bother. Go adopt a puppy instead. Personally, I’m through...
My review
by MajorQT1 on 2018/09/14 03:22
Pros - Great gaming community. The people mostly come for the love of FF but some were duped into playing for credits in other games.. (haha🙋🏼‍♀️) There are 6 servers so far and all are aged differently, my Realm for example has been around for a year this month. Lots of things to do and keeps you entertained while playing with other enthusiasts. Ever changing and capable of being Free2Play for awhile. Cons- Pay2Play kicks in. It costs a lot to play(and advance) after awhile. It can become addictive and time consuming. Customer support can be a joke most of the time. Many times you get Robo answers that don't answer your questions at all. If I could get my money back completely I probably would. But it's impossible. Devs (developers) only tend to reply real answers when you send screenshots of your problems. Glitches and force closes happen pretty regularly and you have to keep minimum contacts and empty mails, reports, and such notifications regularly. Above all a good game but be careful of the financial costs. Some people could have bought a new or used car with such investments.
Playing for 12 months now
by BigDCuz on 2019/04/14 13:47
The game itself is fun, the detail is amazing and the app itself runs semi smoothly depending on what’s going on. The main reason for 1 star is because of the greed of the developer. The terrible customer service, and the overall lack of care from the developer itself. If something goes wrong/glitches don’t even bother to contact them, they will give you a canned response with no actual answer to your question. Even if things relevant to the game they give poor answers on. The game is fun if you get friends in it and can depend on them to help you grow, the defense/offense is a fun portion to learn, and the gear can really change the game, with all that being said, it costs a lot of money to stay current/keep up with the rest of the realm you’re in. Every realm has mega spenders and unless you have “30k is petty cash to me” mentality, it will certainly be painful to grow. In general this game is okay, it could be better, with a better support platform and a “let’s stop being so greedy” attitude would be nice. Other games don’t expect you to max out a credit card or spend your savings, this one does. Btw nothing advertised in the pictures actually happen on the game.
A game full of trolls
by Done with Trolls on 2019/01/07 23:20
Unless you've got unlimited funds, DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! Game caters to the high roller spenders. Purchases start out innocent enough at $5, after you do that it's $20, then a whopping $100 every time you get anything of any importance. The game looks and acts NOTHING like they portray it to be. You will lose troops that you've paid cash for when they are supposed to go to the hospital first. Support is a joke and your supposed to take "trust us the game is fair" as a legitimate answer. Once you hit lvl 20 kiss your hero goodbye because you'll get attacked on nearly a daily basis by players 30+ levels above you looking to steal your hero for a temporary boost, then they will come back a few days later and do it all over again. Just an all around horrible game that does nothing to foster any growth in the community. This game will die, the only solace I have is that there are people on it that will have wasted thousands of dollars for nothing when it does. Mind you I am a player that has played for a year plus and have given them multiple ideas/ways to level the playing field only to fall on deaf ears. The developers don't care and are laughing all the way to the bank at the expense of their user base.
Requires money to make progress after a week
by Doc Walt on 2018/01/19 09:55
This game may seem fun initially as your empires grows from nothing, but then it becomes apparent that you cannot advance without money. However, what the money buys you is often less than what the offer suggests, so it forces you to spend more money so that your prior expenditures don't become wasted money. Eventually you will learn that the game is dominated by high level players who spent thousands to get where they are. You essentially become their fodder where they use your empire to harvest resources by attacking you. At that point, you will realize that all your efforts and/or all the money you spent advancing, is essentially just for the benefit of those high level players. You will spend weeks recovering from the damage your empire took from these high level players. It will not be worth it. It's also very glitchy. Recently, there was an incorrectly programmed pack, that when purchased, gave you free upgrades - saving those players a thousand dollars. Also, do not play this on an older 3rd gen iPad. The touch interface oddly stops working on some screens when the number of items on the screen is reduced exactly to four.
Disappointing
by TFamilyCircus on 2017/08/31 18:24
If you're a fan of the Final Fantasy game series, and expect this to have any similarities, you will be sorely disappointed. I was lured in by the nice cinematic advertisements. I've yet to see a storyline like I've been expecting. The other players really ruin the game. Expect a constant barrage of requests to share nude photos, or sex talk & bullying in the messages & chat system, punctuated by a few people asking for help that go ignored. In actual game play, I don't know how a new player is expected to get anywhere, without spending money. Strong, established guilds mercilessly go after others, laying waste to your little empire faster than you can train troops & research upgrades. Bullies abound- one in particular demanded that I join his guild within 24 hours or he'd destroy me, and attacked 30 seconds later, with 2 more attacks in the next 2 minutes, and attacked 5 times additionally while I was asleep! Repeat attacks should have a timer, and higher levels should be limited as to how far beneath levels they can attack. In short, if you're not already an established player, don't bother. Much of this game needs to be fixed to make it feasible for a new player to join in.
Don’t waste your time!
by Super Scientist 6 on 2018/03/29 17:41
Do not waste your time on what they should be calling Final Fantasy XV Taps and Timers. I would rate this app 0 out 5 stars if I was able. Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire is trademarked by Square Enix but licensed to Epic Action LLC. If your new to Final Fantasy or an epic fan you will NOT enjoy this Final Fantasy “Simulation”. There’s very little fun to be had in this app. Epic Action LLC has taken everything fun and entertaining about a Final Fantasy game and removed it. They have seemingly replaced fun mechanics with the most monotonous Tap and Timer systems that start out small but then go on to take days, weeks, and even months to complete. There’s no way to sustain and/or grow your empire without buying resources and using speed up consumables. This game is purely pay to win. The packs of consumables start out at $5 and then shoot up to $100. This is how Epic Action LLC fools gamers into overpaying for a game that’s not worth $1. Not only have they badly ported over the Final Fantasy XV 3D models and animations in a poor effort to reuse content already created but they fool gamers by advertising a tower defense mini game that really has nothing to do with Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire and can only be played with no rewards once a day.
It’s Like I’m Looking At An Abstract Painting In Game Form
by Golden Griffin on 2018/07/01 14:56
The UI is awful. I downloaded the game for a reward in a different one thinking, “It’s by a big name company and has a ton of good reviews and players. It’s going to be just fine.” Good gosh was I wrong. You know how when kids start being creative with characters and stories and they just throw in everything they like to make it seem cool? “This monster is going to be covered in spikes! My character is going to have every super power and is going to be immortal! MORE SHARP EDGES!” This is exactly how I see this game. There are so many unnecessary aspects and they are introduced horribly. I went through the process of just leveling things to level four and I already had no idea what anything did because it explained next to nothing and just shoved me into the next level up quest. It was all just there at once like they were saying, “Our game is cool! Look how cool RIGHT NOW!” The rest of the game may be fine and it may have been amazing once I learned it all, but it actually made me mad how repetitive, boring, and annoying is was. Introduce the game. Don’t throw up on my eyes with everything all at once. I was trying to like it and I just couldn’t.
$$$
by 386269 on 2018/05/29 11:28
I’m personally not a FF fan but I don’t hate the series. However, since my friend plays FF, we started playing this game together. At first we joined a smaller guild and we both spent $5. It was really fun at first. However things began to move really slow. It took me a month to get to 20k. Not bad and that was with many tests for school so the game wasn’t my main focus. My plan was that for summer I was gonna go all out and get into a top guild. By the end of the summer I was at 80k. By the end of October I was at 100k. I was happy! I could join a bigger guild. My friend had quit by then so I just went by myself. I joined this guild while it was in the middle of being attacked by big group of people who had probably spent thousands on the game. I and 2 other people who were under 150k, were pushed all the way down to 8.9k. After working from May to October I reached 100k and it was ripped away in an instant. I urge you to not play this game because you are supporting developers who are not only tainting FF, but are showing the industry that this is OK. That making Pay-to-Win is a functional business practice when it’s not. We as players should not have to live with this and just accept it.
Worst example of pay to win I have ever played
by Nomnom101 on 2018/02/09 18:56
If you have a few hundred dollars lying around and want to win this game is for you! Resource/unlock packs for this game start at $5 then once you buy one the price increases to $20 if you buy that packs are then $100 and stay there. Packs will typically only unlock one function: merc pits, monster farm, etc. but that is all they do. Unlock them. You then need to spend several hundred more on packs to upgrade them to a point that they are useful. Pack descriptions are deceptive at best and the devs know that. I’ve done the math and their is no way to be a player anywhere near the top dogs without spending hundreds if not over $1000 to unlock everything you need. Everything useful in this game is locked behind a paywall. Once you get above level 10 it becomes impossible to have enough resource to upgrade (because the resource cap is too low) anything without buying packs. Even if you use tiles to go above the resource cap your vault will only protect a small amount if you are attacked. Which you will if you are weak, and you will be unless you spend money. I hate that this game was licensed to use FF assets. This is a disgrace to the series.
