It's easy to get started with and addictive.” 5/5 “This is the best MMO and game ever. I have played other MMO games but this is the best one yet!

Game of War

Engrossing...it grows on you. Aliances become 'families' as like minded gamers ban together strategically. You pace the game to your play style. Lots going on to keep you interested. Great game.
Money pit to the extreme
by CountryRoad101 on 2017/09/21 19:21
I've devoted a lot of time and money in this game. But every week something new comes out that completely screws you everything you did the week before is worth nothing. You can't even solo attack anyone anymore everything is rally only. Stay away this game is made by very very greedy people who don't care one bit about the gamer.
Asewome game
by MuchZaPunane on 2017/09/21 18:25
I really like the game since I started playing it's addicting and helps me get rid of stress you should try it out:)
This game is way too expensive.
by Johnson McDoe on 2017/09/21 13:47
Only get this game if you have unlimited funds!! You'll need to spend at least $200.00 per week to even keep up!! Everything costs a fortune. It's crazy!! Machine Zone has priced this game out of reach for the all but the richest players.
Fun and simple game

Is time consuming but it's an never ending game.

It isn't fun anymore
Fun addictive game
by Jenotb on 2017/09/21 01:58
Really like this game
This game got worse and worse
by Mircea B on 2017/09/20 23:01
Not recommended unless you have a lot of money to spend. Even when you spend some money you're zeroes very fast by a play are that's just a little over your level. After you spend weeks to build your troops and resources in one attack you're back to zero. No army no resources. In order to rebuild you need double the time and money to get back at your previous level. Healing your troops it takes a lot of resources that triple or quadruple your time and money spent. My advice: stay away from this game. It's not a game anymore. It's a way to force you to spend money!
Waste of time unless you're rich
by sircaedynf on 2017/09/20 22:14
I used to love this game when it first came out. You didn't have to drop loads of money into it to grow. Now, unless you have tons of money to waste you can't upgrade or grow. I understand making money. But guys, come on. You'll always have people who pay to play. Make your money there. Let the rest of us check to check players grow too. Sideways game. Wouldn't recommend to anyone unless you've got lots of money to waste to grow.
You burn either way. Either it's your money or your kingdom
by London gentlemen on 2017/09/19 21:53
Fun game if you can afford to pay $100+ every other day.
It's all about the MONEY
by That one stranger on 2017/09/19 10:25
This game used to be exciting but that's not the case anymore. Either you pay up or shield and do nothing. Deep pockets rule this game. It's not free.
War!
by H-TownZombieHunter on 2017/09/19 09:22
Awesome and highly addictive, would recommend to my friends and family!
Not worth your mortgage.
by Eknight2020 on 2017/09/19 00:49
The game is no longer fun or affordable for people who can't keep up with new updates. At this moment the only people playing are big spenders. If you can spend a average $500 a week then this game of for you. Other wise it's not. Every week more people leave it. So do your self a favor and don't hit the download. Because I didn't Believe the reviews when they said this company is greedy for money. They can't even fix all the glitches.
Waste of money
by Who????!! on 2017/09/18 15:21
This is a pay to play game and you have to pay about 400 to 600 a month to stay in an playing level game has gone down the drain!

Greed
by Hendsco on 2017/09/17 18:04
Few years ago game was a lay to play. It has since been ruined due to the greed of the app developers and the weekly to daily updates. If you don't care to spend any money playing a game, don't wast your time with this one.
False advertisers coupled with bad support
by VixInc on 2017/09/17 17:54
Not sure how Apple and Machine Zone don't get sued over this game. That said, if you have plenty to spend and don't mind getting stolen from, it can be fun about once a month when they have kill events vs. other kingdoms.
Seriously?
by Disgruntled in Des Moines on 2017/09/17 15:20

Don't Play
by Tessa590 on 2017/09/17 04:20
This game used to be so much fun. Now it's just a game of who has the most money. You have to be willing to spend thousands of dollars just to keep up with all the new stuff they keep coming out with. Now you can lose everything you've worked on in one single attack. It's depressing. Bottom line- don't play this game. It's not worth it. I wouldn't give it any stars if I could.

by Pop zombie on 2017/09/17 03:13
Was a great game, 2 years playing it. The last few months there are too many updates, I think MZ is doing this so they can run everyone off and cut the servers

Game of War
by PaPa G Bear on 2017/09/16 23:28
Well what use to be fun has now turned into a rich man's game. MZ is going power hungry for money and unless you want to spend thousands of dollars to keep up it is best to walk away. The fun in this game has been lost.
Expensive
by Kickstart119 on 2017/09/16 19:19
If you like to spend a lot of money to be on top just to have it become outdated a day later so you can spend more money, then this is the game to play!
Fun, but too expensive to keep playing
by hawksnbroncs on 2017/09/16 18:12
Can't play very long for free. Packs are way overpriced!!!!
Can't succeed at this game without going broke.
by :()$&@ on 2017/09/16 17:45
I used to play years ago and did great and belong to a top team. I was a level four and enjoyed playing. Than my IPad broke. I recently got a new one and downloaded the game and my profile. I had thousands of chests and upgrades from my city just hanging out. Everything was gone so I put up a week long shield and used all the stuff that had accumulated to build and upgrade for the week. Right when my shield expired I was attacked, destroyed and my hero taken. There are just to many massive players who spend tons of money, to accomplish anything in this game. You work all hard at it and ultimately become a farm for bigger fish. There should be some kind of levels or something, how do you defend when you're a level 18 city and a level 80 comes along and wipes the floor with you? No fun, not worth the time...
Oh Yeah

Game of War personal view
by Dragonhubter on 2017/04/07 16:56
Hi, in the time I have been playing Game of War, I have realized that it can become very addictive really fast. At the same time you have the opportunity to join other alliances, meat New and great people from alliances, and over all just have a tun of fun. The only thinking I would want to see different that would personally help me out, and a lot of smaller players also is if like for one 48 hour time a month, they have the opportunity to buy the biggest, best, and most current packs for 50 % off. If they could do that it would majorly help, and I believe that a lot more people that start out and end up quoting at a small level because they can't build up fast enough, would stay and have a better chance to grow, and then even more fun in the game. So I hope that you can consider what I have said and hopefully find a way to make the highest packs available for a short time once a month for 50% off, it would help every one and in the long run you would as a company would benefit by a lot more sales. You would in the long run be making a little more money at the same time as helping us. Thanks for the fun gaming opportunity and I hope if you are reading this trying to decide if you want to get it, do. You will love it, and enjoy it all. Happy gaming. Sincerely Dragonhubter.
Meh😒
by NaSims1 on 2017/09/02 02:29
Few years ago when I started playing the game, it was fun and exciting. The game gave you a purpose for logging on and staying up late. No matter what your power level was or your alliance ranking, you wanted to log on so you can build, grow and train your army to trod the battlefield field, attack your enemies and watch them Burn. Now, it's all about money. It is no longer a strategic game. It more about who can spend the most money to upgrade their "Stronghold" then brag about it. When you joined a good alliance you were able to work together and grow. NOW, the game forces you and the alliance to spend money to upgrade and the packages are expensive. Sometimes it give you nice discount on the packages, but who wants to spend their waking moments chasing down a deal for upgrades. While I do understand that you have to spend a little money and I was aware of that when I decided to play the game, but come on guys it's getting a little excessive. I find that more people are deciding to leave the game some of which are the founding members of there alliance and this is sad. Even though we write about the issues we have with the game, it seems that it will never change. Game of Wars will continue to do what is best for them and not their loyal gamers. It's sad to say but If you are new to the game and are thinking about starting to play, I would recommend spending your money on something else
A total divestment! Nothing free about it!
by Oneupmike/G'Clan on 2017/07/15 06:11
I started a little over 3 years ago. Enjoyed it but spent more than I should have on an app...thousands! It was still fun because it moved slow enough to play, pay, and contemplate. The social aspect is great also. I miss those days of GoW gaming. As many of the single star reviews state...this is a money pit. There's NO WAY to play WITHOUT paying. The game changes so fast you are going to have to spend constantly to just be a person who can donate troops to a rally. The requirements to advance in levels change all the time also. So you accumulate items, gear, resources, etc that end up rotting in your inventory...waste. There were some aspects in the early GoW days that you could at least spend a minimal amount a year and have fun...for those that played then...it was called "trapping". You can't even do that without spending a ton. It really is sad to see what this game has turned into. Please don't waste your money (or go into debt!!!) on this game. Just a word of wisdom...if you see an app in top grossing section of your App Store, and it's listed as "free"...it ISN'T. There have been plenty who have spent on this game and regret it to keep it in the top for awhile. It is slowly declining because of MZ's greed. Just don't play. I gave it 2 stars because of the social aspect...I have met some great people here. Avoid MOBILE STRIKE, also...same maker!
Beware! Addicting yet developer greed
by Twocastles on 2016/11/08 22:42
The game was fun to play, and I found myself buying pack after pack in my desire to grow. Then it finally dawned on me. I'm dropping hundreds on a pointless game that I'll never be "the best" at and can't keep up with. MZ makes changes so often. Every time I was on the cusp of being competitive they released something stronger. It's never ending and the cost to grow higher and higher is astounding. People are spending thousands on this game, in many cases they don't have that kind of disposable income. And I feel horrible for spending a couple hundred. Anyhow. It's addicting. To start out is annoying. They literally charge you for everything. You want to go to the dungeon? You have to buy a one time use key. So every time you want to go to the dungeon, you have to pay. It used to have nice drops in the dungeon. Now the drops are weak until you get beyond level 6. But to make it that far you need good gear. Of. Purse you have to pay for a CHANCE to get those. There hasn't been prospector chests in well over a month, so if you don't have that set, you can't get it until the next time they deem it worthy. Arrrghh! It's frustrating. Leave! Leave now! Do NOT play this game or any other pay to play. Better off buying a PS3 or XBOX or PC and get games for those. Don't fret about spending $50 on a game either. Because if you play these types of pay to play games, you'll drop $50 a day easy.
Great Game but VERY TRICKY too!!!
by Mitch000000 on 2016/05/20 11:38
I love playing this game. It's very interesting, challenging and competitive. HOWEVER, this game is about money; getting money from the people who is playing. My bad experiences: This happened to me more than one time, and I'm starting to believe the game is setup to do this to us so we can spend more money to rebuild of city. It takes a lot speedups and resources to train troops especially if they are high power troops. To protect your troops while you are not on the game, you will have to use a shield on your city. When I had low power troops, I put a shield on my city for 3 days. When I woke up, my troops were attacked, killed and hospitalized; but I wonder how when I had a shield. Recently, I had millions of high power troops that I spent billions of resources on and 100's of hours of speedups on. I then activated a 3 day shield on my city to protect them. I logged off the game. When I returned, all my troops were attached and killed. I contacted the help center and they insulted me by crediting with some things that I could have got on my own. These actions make me believe that this game gets you attacked purposely, so you can spend more money to rebuild after being attacked badly by power players. My advice to you if you are interested in playing is: DO NOT SOEND ANY MONEY because it will make you emotional after being wrongly attacked.

Honestly, They should give an option of less than a star or none at all for games like GoW. Don't get me wrong, this game started off great: I enjoyed building my city, making friends, I invested my money and time to support my alliance and NOW it seems that it was for nothing. GoW is no longer playable with the flood of weekly new upgrades, the increased glitches and lag times, the devaluing of my account, useless items, and increased expense. Unless you are willing to spend hundreds a week and thousands a month, it may be against your best interest to play. If I could change the fact that I ever invested a penny in this game, I would. The people you meet in game are great, but I stopped spending/playing back in December, and wish I had made that decision sooner. As someone who invested thousands into this game, the numerous updates became impossible to keep up with. My account that was one of the best in the Kingdom, based on power and size, and it became obsolete just like that. I would not recommend this game, and if you've taken time to read this and the numerous other honest reviews, you should head warning and stay away - unless you have an indispensable cash flow because you'll need it to keep up with the 1% of players that are still willing to pay; everyone else is packing their bags and calling quits. Less activity, more dead accounts.. not so fun. Good job, MZ! You've really outdone yourselves this time. 👏 .. 👏 .. 👏
Love the Game But Needs Imporvement
by SpellMaestro on 2016/12/02 01:54
This is a great game in so many ways. Fun people, and all kinds of way to build a monster of an avatar. I have a few issues that bother me: 1) Almost impossible to play without WiFi. I'm a Rank 4 in my Alliance - which means I have to make sure the Alliance Help is being supported and also manage resource deliveries along with coordinate attacks among other things. The chat never loads up without WiFi and the Alliance section doesn't load up with updates, even my bonus gifts can't Open without wifi. This needs to be improved ASAP. I can't even put up a Peace Shield without WiFi. This is a Flaw until fixed. This game requires hundreds of dollars just to be competitive, yet they can't fix this issue? People are going to revolt until this issue is fixed. 2) I feel sorry for the players who don't have the hundreds to sink into this game just to protect themselves from the bigger players AND grow. I have no problem sinking money into a game, but I see a lot of folks in the Alliance struggling to build their Power high enough to contribute to coordinated attacks and also defend themselves and the Alliance. You can't even open up vital buildings unless you purchase enough gold using real money. I'm hoping the Devs find solutions to these obvious and growing problems with Game of War
Not Buying Any More Packs!!!
by GodChaser1988 on 2017/07/15 13:55
I have been playing GoW for about a year, and I only stay for the contacts I've made in my alliance. Otherwise, this game is only nice for the people who can spend $1000 / month or more to build their empire and their alliance. The really big players in the game spend as much as $20,000 in a week. The problem is that those really big players are allowed to hit the much smaller players who can't afford to spend much on the game, and of course MZ is going to cater to the spenders. If you can't afford to spend at least $200 / month, you won't get anywhere in this game, and it's a waste of time and money. Update 7/17: 2 years now, and MZ continues to get worse and worse. If you spend the money to buy a pack today, the items you bought are useless tomorrow because MZ is releasing new things so fast, even a lot of the bigger spenders are quitting because people can't keep up with the changes. Yes you can play for free but all you have is a social FarmVille if you don't spend. At this point, MZ is releasing new stuff so fast that if you can't spend at least $1000 per month, you really can't keep up. I've finally decided to set a 30-day shield & stop buying packs. Makes me sick when I think about the fact that I've spent enough money on this game to buy a house & it means nothing now!! It's a total waste & MZ absolutely DOES NOT CARE about anything but taking your $$$!
Packs
by ALANMILLER12000000 on 2017/07/23 14:27
So as I know everyone knows the only way to get good is to spend money. Nothing wrong with that you don't want to spend money play a different game. But I am one of those money spenders and I have a complaint. I just spend $200 about. And got a few packs that guarantees t8 troops so I go to the ultimate combat and forgot I needed t6 troops to continue only problem is I don't have any water shards. So I am unable to get to t8 which is a bummer because I have all t7 and 8 materials. Not much of a guarantee t8 if you can't get to them. I also contacted them and they won't even give me water shards. How money hungry are y'all seriously there are no packs with water shards how am I supposed to get them? Also to get my SH to higher levels I need my academy higher... the only way to get that is to upgrade my gear workshop and I can due to missing items. Funny thing is when I Bought the pack with the gear workshop in it it came with nothing to upgrade with. So I didn't mind it and bought a few more packs. Once I needed to upgrade my SH a few more levels and couldn't due to missing materials I got upset. Thing was the very next day a new pack came out with the items need to upgrade this building. I'm not going to spend money over and over again. PUT THE RIGHT CORRISPONDING THINGS IN PACKS.
game ruined by daily updates & MZ greed
by saltfork squatch on 2017/08/27 14:22
this used to be an incredibly fun game, but has taken a serious turn for the worse in the last few months...it is not a "FREE" game...sure, you can download it for free, but don't expect to be able to play...the math used makes absolutely zero sense...they don't even use real numbers to calculate anything...what exactly is 1KTT...lol...they use these unreal numbers to complete fuse and bait people to spend money...they put stuff in their packs, and never deliver the goods...it's always "bait & switch"...advertising things in packs that you never receive...I have been playing for almost 4 years and remember when they had their "GUARANTEED last VIP level ever at VIP 20"...that was a huge lie & marketing ploy...you can now obtain VIP 200...there have to be several laws that this company is violating by fraudulent advertising...the better business bureau & fair trade commission should be contacted by anyone who ever spent money, because MZ has robbed us all & continue to lie in their advertising...also, if you have an issue, don't expect any customer service to help...they do t actually have customer service...everything is an automated response & they never address the issues brought to their attention...I used to tell everyone to play this game, but now, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone...stay away from this game & anything else MachineZone has their name on
Pay to be surrounded by jerks
by Gamer4Life0713 on 2017/03/23 03:15
I started playing this game about a month ago with the intention of spending no money as I was led to believe from other positive reviews. But with the constant advertising thrown in your face you start to think "just this one time" which of course is not the end of the story. You will be constantly attacked by other players with power levels in the trillions (it takes a full, strong alliance to rally against a single player with power levels that high), so you contemplate how helpful buying a pack would be to progressing your city even after a massive defeat. You can put up a peace shield around your city but don't forget what time it expires. I had been attacked literally one minute after my shield expired and I was not there babysitting my IPad. Playing the "free" game, you'd be lucky to get your power level into the high thousands, but up against players in the hundred millions and trillions, you're just feeder fish to piranhas. Don't bother gathering resources unless you intend on losing your troops to resource stalkers that would love nothing more than to boost their kill numbers. Do yourself a favor and read the most critical reviews, they are not exaggerated! Anybody who has written a positive review must either work for MZ, or have been compensated in other forms. My advice, don't get started with this "pay to play" game. You will regret investing your time and your money.
Absolutely NOT a free game
by Madman Fury on 2016/11/20 22:49
Don't get me wrong, I will pitch in a little money to fund developers to create awesome. Games, but here is a letter I wrote to the developers. I played for over three years. I came back to see if anything had changed. Yup! They want more money... Well, I tried to come back. But there are no two ways around this game. You must pay to play. To unlock basic features you have to buy a pack. I was ok with buying a $5 pack. But then it didn't come with all you stated it would. O gift mode. No garrison plot unlock. Still can't buy a DBC, even though I go to the sales every time it comes on. I even wrote to you about it. You couldn't even answer the problem. First you put in a standard cut and paste response that did. To address my question. When I wrote back I got a simpl,e...I don't know. Then why are these people allowed to help at the help desk. So, why continue to call yourself a free to play game. There is no way to play for free and succeed. This will be my review as well... I saw that y'all were the number one free to play revenue game last year. That's a shame. I got 50,000 of 2 different chests. All I could craft out of those 100k chests, a head piece for each armor...that really blows chunks! Good luck! These are typical reviews and rants that I hear daily on line in the game. Don't even begin to play unless you have a few extra 10's of thousanfpds of dollars wasting away. Or you WILL NOT SUCCEED!!! DEFINITELY A BUYER OR PLAYER BEWARE GAME!!
Fun but just way too expensive
by kfkhlf4 on 2017/04/29 15:09
It's a fun game and all but you have to spend hundreds of dollars to keep up in it. I've spent very little and am in an alliance with some big spenders but I can't help them much unless I'm willing to fork up a few hundred bucks. One of my alliance members told me he spent over $500 on one research tree. I am having fun playing it but I can't recommend it to anyone I know since it's not worth the cash. Oh and the packs that you spend money on get more expensive the more of them you buy so the first is $5 and then it only offers $10 and $20 and then it keeps getting more expensive so also keep that in mind. Edit: I caved and bought the $20 pack and now the game offers$50-$100 packs. That $20 pack did make me grow about 10 times in power but I'm still orders of magnitude below most other active players. There is a confusingly structured inferno event which makes it look like you can just buy $20 in gold and get the trillions in resources you need at the higher levels but you won't get anything until you spend at least $100. So the game is just getting more expensive. I can't recommend this game unless you're ok with spending thousands. Oh and the most common purchases list here in the App Store is definitely wrong because buying gold on its own doesn't do anything for you.
Fun
by Islandblue mountain on fire on 2015/11/23 00:09
This game is a lot of fun but it is very time consuming. It does lag a lot sometimes and crashes quite a bit. It is a very addicting game so be warned lol. I wished they would have an open all button for the treasure chests it takes up a lot of time to just open each one and if you have multiple chests it can take forever. Hoping they can add a solution for this. You can buy an account from someone who is selling the account could already be ready to go. The time for research is a bit extensive and long... And takes loads of RSS aka resources to build, train troops, and research. I think the merging of kingdoms is a really bad idea I have experienced one and it is the worst. They give you the options to buy packs but that is like a huge hole in your pocket. You can join the game and if you learn it and learn to strategize correctly you can build up your account without spending money. Gain power and join a good alliance that has a high gift level you can get a lot of gifts and help yourself grow. Do not allow this game to take priority over your life that's the best advice I can give you! Overall it is a very fun game to play in your down time. You can meet some great people of all ages the chatting is really awesome. Have fun with this game if you play it just remember that it is after all only a game don't get wrapped up in it like most people do. Have fun! Rose
Gow & mobile strike
by Iamdjp on 2017/05/30 05:33
MZ creates games for a single reason - to make money. Their actual business is big data analytics and create these games as their sole revenue source to support their developers working on their true biz strategy which is data crunching analytics (I know I live in Silicon Valley and see their job postings). I spent over $50,000 on GOW in early 2014. Today if I spent $500 I would have the same "game benefits" because of super inflation. Don't waste your time on any game by MZ. This include their Arnold "mobile strike game". They are seriously after your money. I learned the hard way which many have as well. If you download a game that has a commercial on TV and says "free to play" you must understand it's not at all free to play. They are advertising on tv - this takes money. Think for a moment before you play. And if you don't mind spending more than $100 a day to play a game, realize any dollar you spend today will be worth 1/10th in a few months. The devs need new players to join and play which means they'll inflate packs so that new players who join (which they need to keep you involved) will be able to spend $100 to compete with what you spent $1k on less than a few months earlier. And the cycle will continue indefinitely until the game gets a bad reputation. Which is why Game of War has now become mobile strike.
Game of War- Review
by Cool ouzo on 2015/08/17 08:48
Game of War is a very unique, strategic-based app that requires the best of patience in people and usually results in having good rewards for that; granted that this app has a total pay-to-win system, it's still possible to play this app without paying a penny. Seemingly enough, the app works well (occasional crashes) but never has any major "bugs" or "viruses". The game is graphically not too bad, for an app, it's considered mediocre. If you're biased on Clash of Clans or Boom Beach or any birds-eye view app, then you'll surely enjoy this app as it passes off time rather than other apps that take time- this app, can be an entertainment user. To get to the cons of this app, I'll start off by saying that the pay-to-win is incredibly advertised throughout the app- you'll never be able to get rid of it (even when you buy a pack) and it'll stick with you till you delete it. This is something I can't really get into, and I don't see why it's a MUST to continue advertising; the final con I have is that there's a lot of time to be put into this app. A LOT of time. You're going to have to pay lots of attention to focusing on your quests and journeys if you're looking to get far. Waiting to become better will not make you better. PLAYING IS WINNING! In all, Game of War: Fire Age, is a 4.5/5 for me and I recommend it to anyone who's serious about these games and needs some serious time burners.
Pay to win & game breaking glitches
by Mauler Jr. on 2016/11/27 04:50
This "free to play" game is definitely a pay to win; I paid for the $5 pack to get started and it did make the game more enjoyable for me, then I started realizing that although I was increasing my power at a decent rate, there are a handful of "alpha" clans who have trillions or billions of power per player and the only way to do this is by spending more and more money. Some of these people have dropped hundreds upon hundreds of dollars on this game and it's made them unbeatable. They get to do whatever they want and basically "bully" the little guys into staying shielded all the time, taking away from gameplay for everyone else. The biggest problem for me however, is the game breaking glitches that exist; one of my alliance members sent troops for a rally, they were all killed but his upkeep is still high and he can't put a peace shield up because it says he has troops out on offensive marches. So he just keeps getting hit over and over by those "big fish" I mentioned above, losing his hero and he can no longer play the game. He's STILL waiting on a response from MZ. It's a fun game, to a point. I just wouldn't recommend putting too much into it unless you're willing to put EVERYTHING into it and potentially be left glitched out at the end of the day.
Needs Improvement
by Nightsong66 on 2016/11/30 13:30
I like the game well enough. I've been playing it since I got my smartphone about a year ago, and it's relatively enjoyable. But there's a few things that irk me: 1) Research time. It starts out small, a couple hours maybe, but then it grows to over 1000 DAYS??? I mean seriously, I thank you for the free speed-ups in the Athena's Chests, but I am not waiting practically TWO YEARS for my research to finish. 2)Teleportation. I have a love/hate relationship with this feature. I like being able to jump around and use my treasure maps, but when people attack me as soon as my shield drops (though many have given me a couple hours between the shield dropping and their first attack) and attempt to zero out my resources, and then teleport away like a coward before ANYONE in my alliance can retaliate? That's when I hate it. I have a couple other complaints, but those are two of my biggest ones. I do like the game, and for the most part, I try to play daily. It's fun, a decent city-builder, and you get to wage all-out war on (other than your alliance) a kingdom full of players. You help your alliance members with construction and research, healing their troops, and sometimes you find friends among the other players.
Pay to Play
by xXD4RK1Xx on 2017/03/16 00:30
Terrible game design makes this game practically pay to play. You'll literally be one of the weakest players in any kingdom unless you pay to play. And to keep at the top you'll have to spend 100's of dollars MONTHLY. While updates are usually good, in this game they're basically just more upgrade options for players who pay for it. Past around level 21? You'll basically be stuck in a rut and won't be able to upgrade anything unless you pay. This is because you simply won't be able to get the amount of resources that are available to everyone because you simply can't farm them quick enough or in large enough amounts. Furthermore you'll reach a point where you can't upgrade because of the requirement of exclusive resources that are only available to player who pay because there is literally no way to obtain these resources except by paying for them. This includes things like brass rods, hammers, heroic medals, fire shards, and the list keeps going on and on. They've also greatly reduced milestone chest drop rates which means some resources are even more difficult to obtain now, like gold. So just avoid this game like the plague unless you're looking for something to empty your wallet on, but you might as well just play something like MTG because at least you have a chance of making a profit from that.
The fun is Gone
by WinterMagnolia on 2017/02/13 00:07
I've been playing Game of War since just after it was offered. Originally it was a lot of fun because you weren't attacked constantly but allowed to grow. Now you MUST be shielded at all times and shields cost real money. If you aren't shielded against attacks your own alliance will attack you so no one else can take your resources or Hero. To be able to attack enemies or just protect yourself is expensive. I've read reviews of people who say they don't spend money. They might not, but they also can't protect themselves or grow (meaning completing higher & higher levels of research to enable upgrading buildings and training decent troops.) You cannot compete without spending $500 - $1000 minimum. Many of the people still playing are hard core and won't even talk to you if the haven't achieved levels of one billion plus. It was fun originally but now it's only fun for the people who have and will continue to spend serious money. If you aren't willing to do that, find another game. This is the reality and to those who'll try to call BS & say that I'm still playing so I must enjoy it and that I'm only mentioning the problems; I haven't mentioned ALL the problems like horrible customer service & having spent quite a lot playing, I'm hesitant to just dumping my investment.
GOW
by Locke645 on 2015/07/16 05:09
Game of War, in my opinion, is a pretty addicting game. I've been playing it for a few months now and haven't found any other game that I enjoy playing as much as I enjoy GOW. Unlike all the other games, those similar to GOW, that I've played, they have only taken your troops as your power. In GOW, however, it is quite different. Not only do your troops add to your power, but so does doing research and upgrading buildings. In this game, doing research is absolute key, I've found. It not only leads to massive amounts of power, but boosts all your things like troop health, attack, and defense. Resource production is increased, march speeds and many other things can also be greatly improved with research. I tell all new people to the game, focus on research. You want an army, yes, but you need the boosts from research and cores if you don't want to be slaughtered when you attack or you are attacked. It also helps if you keep all your buildings at the same level as you upgrade your stronghold to the next level because it makes it much easier the more you progress through the game, I know that from experience. Also, they provide some awesome packs. Even the $5 you can buy when you first start off can be very useful. But be warned, when you buy a pack, it is really hard to stop yourself from wanting to buy another one!!!
The GAME you love to hate
by BigWhiteVan on 2016/12/28 02:41
This is the most addicting game around. I have played many years and you won't be top player unless you spend money. Real money. Lots of money. And it is so popular that the system needs upgrading all the time and old devices can't keep up. So they crash. BUT!!!! It is still the BEST game out there. It has levels to achieve even in small non spending players. It teaches you to protect what you build. It can be destroyed. But that is a lesson everyone should learn. It is so much easier now to play than when it started. And many still play. The best part of the game maybe the chat system. Being able to live chat with people around the world to collaborate and achieve goals makes this game emotionally addictive as well as personally addictive. The translator is not perfect but ironically provides much comic relief. You can easily achieve a large city with a $20-$40 a month investment. Or 2-3 lunches at fast food. Think about it. A console game costs $60 and it never changes. Not to mention the $300 it takes to buy the console. And the $240 it takes to play online. Try GoW and see why people love to HATE it!!
Game of Wallet
by bassman61 on 2017/06/16 11:10
The game itself is relatively mundane and lacks excitement. The game graphics are reminiscent of something from 10 years ago and are rudimentary. There is really no battles to view, and the strategy is to spend the most money to have the latest equipment, biggest towns, most troops, etc. While advertised as a war and strategy game, this truly is neither. This is a game about spending thousands or dollars. The game is riddled with defects that MZ has no interest in addressing, instead they blame your device, the game version or your wireless connection. When there is a big battle, MZ's infrastructure is not equipped to handle it and the latency and lag time make the game unplayable and leave you vulnerable. The overall stability of the game would be classified as unreliable. Most players will experience at least 1-2 crashes over as many hours. I personally have experience as many as a dozen crashes in a 3 hour period. MZ makes no apologies for these issues, it instead actually told me in an email, the game is getting expense and buying packs is part of the game. And this means spending $100+ per week. The game is dying and the better players are leaving and either selling or abandoning the game due to MZ's sole interest of greedily grabbing money and little interest in developing a game and game community.
Dissapointed
by KingdomLaw on 2017/04/01 13:51
I have been playing this games for months, spent a couple hundred dollars. Everything was OK until I got my last pack. System glitched and I lost a reduction boost, wasting half of what I paid without boost. MZ didn't even answer and neither did Apple. This qualification is for both companies. I would have expected this from MZ but not from Apple. No answer given by either of both. Game is good, you have to pay to have fun honestly. If you have the bucks, go for it. If you're planning on not spending, probably isn't going to be very fun. It's easy to get hooked and you're forced to keep spending money constantly or your account gets devaluated. There's a new update every week or two weeks that make previous updates irrelevant. Also the packs offer tons of things every new week, so if you spend today 100$, next week you'll get 25% more, at least, in a new pack. The devaluation should be controlled given that they are intentionally devaluating accounts to make you keep buying. With 100$ today you can research what a month ago was 4000$ - 5000$. And the attributes that today cost 5000$ in a month will be 100$. Three years ago gold packs game with 26,000 gold. They started devaluating them and currently we are standing at 275,000,000 million gold for the same money, and also housands of trilions of resources.
Poor customer service, no way to advance without HUGE $$$ investment, STOP BEFORE YOU START
by Han-Shoots-First on 2017/08/12 20:36
I spend all my game funds just keeping peace shield up, without active powerful allies there's little chance of enjoying this game. Player interest is at an steadily declining low, because of lack of new content. Since 2016 there's been few useful modifications in the updates most to put more money grubbing buttons on the screen. You can hardly see your kingdom home screen for the sales icons. I've been playing for years and even spending money there's no guarantee you will get a package that contains want you need to progress m. Also it's near impossible to catch up with older players. If you started with Kate Upton you're likely bored with the lack of new content (they used to put out seasonal events at least). If you started with Mariah Carey's Athena you'll just spend all you CASH & gold on shields to keep from getting squashed all the time. It is ridiculous how hard it is to play without accidentally purchasing deals of the hour, seriously they will not forgive this blunders because they designed it with this tactic in mind. NO REFUNDS & Poor customer service & no way to advance without HUGE money investment, no point even as a time waster it's fun ratio is out weighted by its flaws.
Pros and Cons
by 466Augustus on 2015/09/16 09:36
This game is extremely addictive. Alliance/kingdom chats give you a opportunity to converse and connect with everyone you're playing with. It's very complex, unlike most apps which is great. However there are a couple downsides. I play on a iPhone 5s and while I don't experience too many problems, the ones I do notice could be devastating to anyone that has a lot of time/money into this game. This mainly revolves around shielding. A few times now I've had to reboot the game in the middle of a KVK KE as it hasn't allowed me to apply a shield. This tends to happen as my marches sometimes get stuck at their location. I've also purchased a pack in the past and was not given the bonus gold from it. I messaged MZ but they were not helpful at all. My biggest issue however is the fact that they fail to put out a decent Silver pack. Silver is the hardest rss to find and the tiles you gather from offer next to nothing. I'd also like to see them merge a few kingdoms together. A lot of them have a low population and there's not much action going on, which becomes boring. Please stop making new kingdoms so regularly and focus a little attention to the low population kingdoms please MZ! Over all...a great game with a few bugs to work out. I play constantly and have dumped in over $1000 but it's been a lot of fun and I've made some great friends doing so.
Horrible support team.. Never Ending glitches.. And a lot of money needed to spend
by Itzzsisibabiie on 2016/08/14 12:25
The game is nice. I hate how everything with this game is all money and they're packs are expensive too. If you want to get anywhere in this game you need to buy packs. When ever I have an issue with the game I have to email them and straight away they either belittle me like I don't know what I'm talking about or they say I'm lying; which I than have to send them a whole other email stating the issue AGAIN. Personally you shouldn't handle your services like this your Motto should be the customers always right. If I could attach some of the stuff these people have said to me in their emails it's just extremely rude and customer service shouldn't be saying those things. There's ALWAYS an issue with the game, never fails. I think they think that they can't have glitches with their game because every time you bring up a glitch they sound so appalled that you would bring something like that up. Another issue was my items going missing that mind you I paid for and I told them this and they said to me if I didn't know the name of said item that it couldn't be fixed; which surprise surprise I didn't know the name so they did absolutely nothing. For the most part the game is fun and you meet great people but, if you're going to take my money and a lot of it at that then you need to step it up.
What the real story is
by Sir smelly 124 on 2017/01/07 07:47
The story starts on a cold winter day in a small kingdom ruled by sir smelly first of his name this was the one true king of his kingdom but then one day he noticed something was off he sent an army out to scout the did not return from their long voyage it seemed the king was worried he could not tell where his soldiers had been any thought they could only be one person who could do such damage to one army he mind was racing he thought it was impossible he stopped fell to his knees and wept "why lord why would you curse me with this" the kingdom stoped to see their king on his knee they knew one thing could bring a kind to his knees like this they ran for shelter... BANG! A boulder the size of a cow comes flying threw the kingdom walls the kings face changed fear struck his body as he looked through the broken stone wall there was no catapult he knew what he was up against... silence around the towns centre the king shaking in fear as a shadow cast on the stone wall behind him he cries out "spare me for I am not born from fire I am not worthy" and shadow pulls an iron sword... the king cries "No I am not ready" then in one swift move.....WHAM.... the king is dead. The phone notification goes off to show the king was killed by he first game of war player..... TheLegend27
1st Bank of Machine Zone
by SerraZ on 2017/07/21 21:41
Do not download the game, it will become a major time sap and then be a complete waste unless you are willing to spend serious money. download is free but if you want to do anything in the game, it becomes pay to play. New features are released 3-4 times a week, making your account non-competive, and now players that spend in top 1% are allowed to update beyond what is currently available destroying other accounts that may not have spent nearly as much. You can easily spend $4-500 dollars a week just to be out dated the very next day! Further, with each update some new glitch allows non-maxed players to be zeroed, gear to disappear, or not even engage. And to add insult to all this, MZ now make players pay to boost during the kingdom kill events, those who can not afford to purchase the boost tokens run the risk of being zeroed if they participate. Any issues you may have will not be addressed, and if you find yourself zeroed because of an error of MZ part it will still be your fault. Do not expect any response or customer support, even those who spend hundreds of dollars a week still do not spend enough! Stay far, far away from all Machine Zone Games.. play FarmVille, its cheaper then updating just to buy shields in GOW - Serra
Great if you're smart about it.

When you first get in the game find an alliance with a high gift level and join. Make friends and be kind and you will grow fast for basically free. I've spent 5$ on the game and probably didn't need to. In my alliance the gift level is very high and the people who do spend money are generous and gift me and other smaller players so that our alliance is strong and not just a few players in it. I went from 400k power to 126m power in a hour, and then from that to 500m power the next day, and the day after that I'm now in the billions and have leveled up all my buildings fairly high. You don't have to spend a lot you just have to be nice and others will be nice to you. Have fun and don't get too upset if you get attacked because you can rebuild in literally 10 minutes if you ask your Big players for a blessing and some help. The only bad thing about it is that the MZ customer service is cruddy and never helps you out. They just say they're sorry and give you some reason they can't do anything, can't even type out the email they send you. Just Copy and Paste.
Buy something nice instead-
by Jetsam Rook on 2017/02/05 16:59
MZ built an app that is buggy, crashes, lags, and costs as much as a used car to be competitive in. On the backend, it's basically just a spreadsheet: your army + boosts - enemy troops + boosts. Feel like spending $100 on an app like that? How about 200? 1000? More? What if I told you the moment you do, and catch up in power after weeks or months, they'll roll out the next levels and upgrades just to make sure you *have* to spend more in order to capitalize on your investment. The chat system is the best part of the game - and it should be, because your interactions with people are the only good part of the game after a while and will keep you playing. It's NOTHING like advertisements, where you actually interact in battles. You just click "attack" here and wait. It's a pointless and pointlessly expensive game. And the hundreds or thousands you spend (everyone does after a while) won't even buy you quick and helpful support staff, just emails that are cut/paste and take days to receive. There's no way around spending, btw - eventually upgrades will take hundreds of years (literally) unless you purchase speed-up items. Save your wallet, download Dawn of Titans (a beautiful ripoff in 3D with interactive battle), and buy a flatscreen TV or a car instead.
Very Fun!

GoW is a very fun game to play. I always wondered what the attraction is for one of these MMORPGs. Now I know. I have all but forgotten my other games and apps on my phone. I rarely even watch TV anymore because I would rather spend my time playing this game. It isn't just the game itself that is fun, it is the people you meet in this virtual world who are the true entertainment. You gain significant benefits for being part of an alliance, and choosing one with other active players is very important as they will help you and look out for your "empire" as you grow. If I love the game so much, why four stars? Although you can play the game for free, you will find, after the first couple of weeks, that you need to spend to grow faster. I have no problem with that, as the developers have to be compensated for the time they spent making the game. I would have spent more buying a console and games than what it takes here. There are people in my alliance who have been playing for months without spending huge sums of money. But to grow into the higher ranks of power in this game requires very large investments. So if you are looking for a social game and enjoy the interactions, you will enjoy this game immensely. If you want to be a major player and love being the biggest and baddest, this requires more than skill, it requires vast amounts of time and money. Try it and enjoy!
Bad business
by K McCain on 2016/04/07 00:33
I love playing this game. However, recently I had written contact support asking if they would exchange speeds if I purchased a pack. I received a reply saying they would do that for me. I purchased a pack and sent a request to have them exchanged. I was told to please tell them exact denominations so I broke down every speed up. I received an email saying they would get the conversion done as quickly as possible. Two days later I asked how the conversion was going. I got a reply saying this was no longer available. I wrote a couple more times asking why they would tell me yes, then have me break down each speed up, then tell me no. I got a reply saying it's no longer available and that they will no longer discuss this topic. If I had another concern to make a new request. I was extremely disappointed as I've spend a lot of money on this game. So I contacted apple and without questions, they refunded my money. I can't thank Apple enough. They took one look at my emails from mz and refunded my money in less than 24 hours. Be very careful what their support tells you, as they will say whatever you want to get you to buy then never fulfill their commitment. I'm very disappointed and will never purchase from them again. It's a great game but very poor customer service.
Laggy / Poor Customer Service
by Fire K34 on 2015/12/03 21:12
I have been playing this game for a few years now, since it was released. Initially is was a great game, addictive but however that has changed in the past year. The game has become very laggy, slow and unresponsive leading to losses in the game that may take either a lot of time to repair or a lot of money. I have dealt with this numerous times and have put in multiple complaints regarding how bad it has become. I have lost items in my inventory, have suffered losses due to game lag, marches not returning, getting booted while in a war, those are just a few examples but the list goes on. What makes matters worse is the customer service.... It is extremely horrible. They don't respond 80% of the time and when they do, the response is generic regardless of the problem. They ask for screen shots of a lot of issues but when provided they don't respond leaving a lot of issues unresolved. Recently MZ has made announcements of the game being revamped and being fixed, DONT believe them!!! The game is slower than ever, still boots me off, all they changed was offers in the packages they sell..... They have their priorities screwed up and are just wanting people to pump more money rather than actually fixing the game issues. I don't recommend this game, if you are still a player I recommend getting together and boycotting until they make a true effort to fixing the issues and make this game fun to play again.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD! NOT WORTH THE HEADACHE!
by ROOTzROCkREGGAE on 2017/07/26 23:07
Ridiculously priced packs that you need to buy to keep up with the game. New updates almost daily that make last purchase completely worthless forcing you to buy packs again. Greedy, greedy, greedy company. Horrible lagging and glitches, making gameplay frustrating. Wish I would've never spent that first $5. That's the only time the game is that cheap...after that it's $20-$100 per pack! This is insane. And even crazier for those who've already spent so much that they can't stop playing. No strategy is involved. Players who spend the most are the ones who dominate. Any veteran player will say the same. Lousy layout and graphics along with the constant annoyance of being bombarded by ads to buy packs. Was fun at first but now I just feel obligated to play since I've spent so much though not nearly enough as most. Also have been double charged a handful of times so have to go through the hassle of getting refunded. Save yourself the trouble and your hard-earned money by staying far away from this game. Trust me, it will be natural to want to spend in order to grow and advance in the game but then you'll get stuck and have to spend again. Don't...just don't. Not worth it.
Downhill slide
by DaeVol14 on 2017/04/18 15:44
This game can be highly addictive. The interactive social platform allows you to connect with cool people from all over the world. That being said, the game development has always focused on enticing players to spend money. Many issues effecting game play have been advertised as "fixed" but continue to occur rampantly to players as the developers focus is on releasing half-conceived and incomplete updates players must pay cash for. Customer service is a joke MZ created in order to avoid taking responsibility for their development and game issues-they will pretend they don't understand the question most of the time. And, if they do manage to understand the question, they blame the issues on everything from Internet connection to iTunes to avoid compensating players for their own server issues or bugs. The game used to require some skill, and advertises that money is not necessary to succeed. This is a lie. Many features of the game cost $5-$100 to unlock ($120 if you live in Canada!!!) and without these pay-to-play features, you cannot successfully participate in in-game events or battles against other players. Several of the game events only offer prizes for spending real money, and many of the other event prizes are not attainable without spending money.
STOP PAYING MZ!!!
by ToP_NoTcH_PLaYaZ on 2017/06/30 15:21
They know this game is coming to an end and losing lots of players everyday!! This game had lots of spenders at one point and now it's taking it out on the few idiots left willing to spend $100's a week!! They merged us to make it seem like there's a lot of players but look how many kingdoms there are now compared to before. Most of the dead accounts have disappeared. They are milking you idiots for everything they can. New Economic research ain't got nothing to do with the economics of the game? It's a trap!! You spend to reach the highest level and boom... another update. Spend $500 for your hero to reach level 110. I don't wanna know how much money you gotta spend to hit VIP70 right now. I've spent tons... got lots of resources that I can't even use anymore because they changed all the resources to something else. I will shield for one month and when I check back in I bet I see Stronghold 50's. Hero level 200, VIP 200, and probably 5 new tiers of research!! Stop paying these greedy game developers. Your all fools!! I'm a fool for staying and paying as long as I did!! I regret the thousands of dollars I've wasted on a stupid app. It's not even cool really. There are better graphics on an Atari (if you remember what those are).
Dont do it! RUN THE OTHER WAY!
by Bluesgirl32 on 2017/07/19 14:31
I have played this game since the beginning. It WAS a Great game, compelling strategy with updates every month or two, as well as meeting loads of good people made for a very addicting PAY TO PLAY game (nothing is free to actually compete). But since Dec 2016 Machine Zone decided that it was time to get way richer than they were already getting by dropping advancements in the game every 1-3 days, which of course meant that you had to buy to stay active in the game. Then last Thursday they released an "upgrade" for the extremely wealthy that took hundreds out of the game in less than 3 seconds by allowing those that could afford it to go past the normal upgrades to wipe out everyone else that wasn't under a "protective shield". I'm not talking about the person that spends $10-$20 a month, Nope Im talking about the people that spend several hundred (stupid i know) per month! Take my advice and NEVER DOWNLOAD THIS APP!! And i'd like to share the response i got from MZ Customer Support when i ask why they would allow this to happen, and I Quote "Some players wanted to achieve more in our game, SO ONLY FOR THEM we have released additional features." As i said before...just DON'T download this app for your sake.
What a great game
by dreamerkoh on 2015/01/11 08:43
You'll need to form alliances within Game of War, teaming up with other countries and sharing resources and supplies. These aren't always the most trustworthy agreements - sometimes their king will attempt to overtake yours in the name of leadership. However, a good Alliance is nice to have, especially when you're crushing a rogue country under your boot, making them pay for dastardly deeds and displaying true power. With Game of War, though, it takes a while to get there. Like the best MMOs, or "grind-fests," it takes time and perhaps money to build a nation. Don't expect to jump in and have your ideal kingdom in minutes. Thankfully, the investment is worth it. Machine Zone has a great gameplay system where it's relatively easy to select your resources and take your kingdom and soldier to new heights. Crafting new weapons is a delight, as you can see how they take effect in the game's real-time battles. The scope of these battles is impressive, especially if you're a fan of epic fights. Some more intimate one-on-one encounters for leadership would've been nice, but the game does fine without them. Game of War looks good. You can see how your kingdom's growth is coming along, while keeping an eye open for neighboring allies - or enemies - with ease. However, this game is best played on an iPad, as it may be too hard to navigate on a tinier iPhone screen.
Free-misleading***CASH COW
by Kiwistraw1 on 2017/06/30 19:31
Like a lot of free apps this is free to begin with. You can continue to play free but it is very limited. The only way to really grow is by putting out money & it continues to ask for more & more money. If you don't spend cash you will take a long time to advance....^^^^update on review of game...as others have mentioned there are ridiculous amounts of resources needed to build, research or train troops but those are only part of issues, MZ requires time periods for each item to complete & some of those will take literally over a million years to complete; unless you buy speed ups to shorten the time. I reached the max level on my city for about a month. The game had top level of 30 on cities then upgraded to 35 now it's higher & doesn't look to have an end & I've only been playing for about 11 months....I believe MZ will continue to make it bigger & more expensive as long as people spend...I heard someone spent 1.4 million & they embezzled that, and that money was spent before the new improved upgrades!! SO WATCH OUT.. right now I play & REFUSE to spend any more, I spend my time staying shielded, collecting resources, killing monsters & most of it chatting with friends. Why pay for that?
MZ are crooks
by S8bites on 2017/07/17 22:49
Please don't download or start this game. Not only is it ridiculously expensive to play, but MZ puts staff and beta testers in the game just to burn the cities of others to promote more pack buying. There is an alliance called One, lead by Ctesse who has like 7-15 accounts and the people who play that account reported they get packs that cost players $99 USD for $5. Ctesse continues to have updates before other players and very obvious it's MZ related account. Even if upgrades are out, it takes time to click all the buttons, especially on your research treees; but the One alliance miraculously have it all upgraded fully in minutes. 3 days ago this account tore through several kingdoms that btw cost $100 for every kingdom teleport and was zeroing people's cities ($1000's of troops) with just one hit due that the upgrades ctesse had that non mz players did not. Also mz does give away stuff in hand to help you, but the amount and items do not help in any manner. One building or research can cost you 800 billion days and over a trillions of resources to complete, but you might get a million or couple of million resources to complete a quest. There are better and cheaper games out there. THIS GAME IS A LAWSUIT JUST WAITING TO HAPPEN.
A Money-Hungry, Dying Game
by DSDNGR on 2016/05/02 21:56
I have been playing for 2 years now and have seen the game through many changes and advances. I've spent loads of money trying to keep up with the game's updates but it's nearly impossible to do without a thick wallet. Once sales started popping up for days that weren't even holidays or weekends, I knew that MZ (developers) was getting desperate. They are now advertising a "May Day" sale. Last week they had a "Hump Day" sale; they are probably losing loyal players because power is so unachievable these days. Strategy used to be of value and now anyone can come in and outgrow you if he's got enough money, killing the strategy aspect of the game. For those that moderately spend, they thriftily become rally traps and you spend a good amount of the kill event just looking for a target that you won't be point-deficit in hitting. I've watched numerous loyal players leave after years because the sales have caused such an imbalance amongst players and they are tired of paying to keep playing at their current level. I am tired too and will be selling a bundle of six accounts in hopes of getting some of my money back. Time to spend it on something worth the investment. The game is just not fun anymore. Don't waste your money (and you will) or time on something you'll just have to keep upgrading every month at the cost of 3x $100 gold packs. Goodbye GOW!!!
It's like throwing your money in a hole.
by Just don't play this game on 2017/06/21 02:02
I played for over a year as a free user. I started to purchase packages, roughly $200 all together. I was in a great alliance. I was a very powerful player for pretty much doing it all for free. I started to noticed as the game grew in popularity they started pumping it with "new" in-game features, making to many items, making it nearly impossible to complete anything without having to spend a lot of money. I stopped playing for a little bit and came back recently to chat with some old friends and now the game is just trash. If you can even get it to go past 70% loading then I applaud you. I have a brand new iPhone 6s+ 4g service and on wifi and the game just does not run like it use to. It's probably because of to much garbage they are filling it up with. One thing that may speed up the in-game play is allowing users to disable all the freaking "purchase gold" ads/pop ups. I would not install this game it is a waste of time, space on your phone, and money. Anyone who has stupid money to spend then this game is for you. However remember this is just a video game. Why don't you spend your money on something real and that actually has a purpose.
Good game
by Evansapple123 on 2017/02/04 15:13
This game is fun. It takes a lot of time and money to do well. I'm one of those players who doesn't spend any money. The game will give you enough overtime to keep you going. I will never be a top player. When you play like me you need to find a good easy going alliance which doesn't expect a lot out of you. My alliance is great for my purposes. We hunt monsters. We don't spend a lot time fighting wars. Also, as a younger castle you need to keep watch out for bully castles who attack when unshielded. This is especially important when you reach level 15 because you will lose your hero in the attack. Without a hero you can't do much of anything because you lack most boosts. You can buy shields for gold but it gets expensive so you have keep an eye out for when you need it. The game early on takes a lot of time. Before level 21 plan on spending minimally 1-2 hours per day. At the higher levels, you only need to log in 10 minutes a day to maintain your castle. Also if you are not going to spend money, make sure to conserve your gold. Only use it to resurrect your hero. You will need it later for research. Enjoy!
Don't waste your time or money !!
by Allnicksaretakenblah on 2017/07/29 00:50
It's unfortunate to see this game go down like this. Unless you spend $100 or more a month just to maintain your account it's not worth it. Then when you do spend money everything you bought gets outdated in a week or two at max. They pay people to play with super accounts that just go around killing your city so you spend more. They don't listen to their players or care for that matter anymore. Spending $200 only makes you a top player for two weeks. New updates come just about every two weeks so if you aren't paying attention you will lose it all then need to spend $200 to get you back to where you were then $200 to get you ahead again for two weeks. Don't waste your money it's just not worth it anymore. MZ is a very greedy company that is only exploiting its few remaining loyal players and is not looking for new ones. They have practices that if everyone knew they did no one would even play. With as many bad reviews as they have how would they have 4 stars still. Sounds like someone is paying off Apple/App store. If everyone quit the game for a month or stopped buying they would change their tune. Boycott Game Of War!!
Why not correct price
by Ikea4 on 2016/01/07 13:08
The game cost a lot of money if you want to play competitively. It can be a boat load of fun though once you get hooked. There are glitches that do happen to some and actually happened to me. That cost me a few hundred dollars and actually the fault was on MZ. They did finally manage to respond and of course did nothing to really help except give me a couple of peace shields. It should've been an insult but after two weeks when I did hear back from them, they actually sounded concerned. The point is they are improving. They aren't perfect but they care enough to keep trying do I will stick with them. They variation in the price or tax paid on the gold packs is an issue since it really does add up. Prices are the same on game but billed over $8 for a 4.99 purchase. Wife spent a lot of money and there are over $200 in these extra charges. I'm going to raise the rating I gave initially because MZ is raising the level of service. Keep up the good work guys. Update: lately they have promised events and not delivered. There have been very few kvk kill events and the events that have happened require spending to participate in. That's not fun.
MZ is too GREEDY
by No More $ for MZ on 2016/01/28 22:29
This is a amazing game. The features and the style of play set it apart from all of the other downloadable apps. I've been playing for a year and am totally hooked. Aside from the actual game itself, it has a social component that truly enhances the game. I have met some really great people on GOW in the past year. Unfortunately, Machine Zone (MZ) had to ruin it with their never ending greed. Despite all the ads on TV, this is not a "play for free" game. It costs money. Lots of money. I am embarrassed to tell you how many thousands of dollars I have spent on this game; but I was okay with that. Like I said, the game is awesome and a lot of fun. What has finally gotten me to the point of quitting is MZ's insatiable lust for money. It is one thing to put a price on the game and spend to achieve that level play. Quite another to do what MZ has done: constantly raising the bar to make a high level of play untenable unless you spend 10 to 20 thousand dollars. Shame on MZ for their greed. My advice to those thinking about downloading this app: DON'T DO IT!!! Even though the game itself is so much fun and you will meet some awesome people, at the end of the day you will be left with considerably less money then you started with and never achieve that level of play you were searching for and deserve.
Great game/worst customer service
by Kimster112 on 2015/09/20 23:40
I love this game when it actually works or let's you log on, and the people you meet on here are the best. If you're looking for a stable platform, reliable game play, any sort of customer service or tech support then this is not the game for you. MZ by far has the worst customer service I've ever had the misfortune of dealing with. They don't care how much time or money you put into the game. The only thing they care about is how much more money they can squeeze out of you. Nothing that happens in the game is ever their fault: like being kicked during a rally, shields dropping early, lags that are so bad you don't know you're being attacked until it's to late, people porting in but not showing up on your screen, cores not activating when you use presets, etc. There are so many issues with this game and no matter how many people complain about them MZ does nothing to rectify them or compensate people who lose literally hundreds of dollars because of them. They just keep add more stuff to make more money. When you send a ticket in because of an issue, you'll get the same canned response they send everyone telling you it's your device, Internet connection anything except for their programming. It's sad to see how many dead cities are littering kingdoms because of MZ. Unless you're willing to spend thousands of dollars on a game, you won't last that long. The download may be free but that's about it.
Bottomless pit
by Jaminneb on 2016/07/23 22:52
I've been playing the game for a couple years now. The game is pretty complex with lots options to build up your city and interact with your alliance. This game has been available for a few years now, so there would be many players in your kingdom already playing the game for a long time, and their cities would be well developed and accumulated with exceptional power. It's a war game, and it's hard to grow power without putting your bank on it. There's not much protection against a more powerful player other than buying shields. The game constantly being updated and recent update puts almost anything you do requires you to pay for it, so the more you invest in the game to more you have to continue to pay to maintain or catch up to your opponents...it's pretty much an endless pit. The evil part of MZ is that they make the kingdom events (last a day long) that one can use to push to build up and obtain a reward when completing the tasks, they make it in such a way that you almost can reach the goal, and the last bit, you have to pay to finish. Anyway, this game is built for people with heavy wallets. If you haven't start, forget it, use your money for a new car payment...otherwise, you will always be the under dog, even with as much as you can dump into it...MZ greed...

Game of War
by Vedrigan on 2017/09/21 21:12
Engrossing...it grows on you. Aliances become 'families' as like minded gamers ban together strategically. You pace the game to your play style. Lots going on to keep you interested. Great game.
Money pit to the extreme
by CountryRoad101 on 2017/09/21 19:21
I've devoted a lot of time and money in this game. But every week something new comes out that completely screws you everything you did the week before is worth nothing. You can't even solo attack anyone anymore everything is rally only. Stay away this game is made by very very greedy people who don't care one bit about the gamer.
Asewome game
by MuchZaPunane on 2017/09/21 18:25
I really like the game since I started playing it's addicting and helps me get rid of stress you should try it out:)
This game is way too expensive.
by Johnson McDoe on 2017/09/21 13:47
Only get this game if you have unlimited funds!! You'll need to spend at least $200.00 per week to even keep up!! Everything costs a fortune. It's crazy!! Machine Zone has priced this game out of reach for the all but the richest players.
Fun and simple game
by Fv55678ddcvvhj on 2017/09/21 10:14
Is time consuming but it's an never ending game.

Fun addictive game

Really like this game
This game got worse and worse
by Mircea B on 2017/09/20 23:01
Not recommended unless you have a lot of money to spend. Even when you spend some money you're zeroes very fast by a play are that's just a little over your level. After you spend weeks to build your troops and resources in one attack you're back to zero. No army no resources. In order to rebuild you need double the time and money to get back at your previous level. Healing your troops it takes a lot of resources that triple or quadruple your time and money spent. My advice: stay away from this game. It's not a game anymore. It's a way to force you to spend money!
Waste of time unless you're rich
by sircaedynf on 2017/09/20 22:14
I used to love this game when it first came out. You didn't have to drop loads of money into it to grow. Now, unless you have tons of money to waste you can't upgrade or grow. I understand making money. But guys, come on. You'll always have people who pay to play. Make your money there. Let the rest of us check to check players grow too. Sideways game. Wouldn't recommend to anyone unless you've got lots of money to waste to grow.
You burn either way. Either it's your money or your kingdom

Fun game if you can afford to pay $100+ every other day.
It's all about the MONEY

This game used to be exciting but that's not the case anymore. Either you pay up or shield and do nothing. Deep pockets rule this game. It's not free.

Not worth your mortgage.
by Eknight2020 on 2017/09/19 00:49
The game is no longer fun or affordable for people who can't keep up with new updates. At this moment the only people playing are big spenders. If you can spend a average $500 a week then this game of for you. Other wise it's not. Every week more people leave it. So do your self a favor and don't hit the download. Because I didn't Believe the reviews when they said this company is greedy for money. They can't even fix all the glitches.
Waste of money

Greed
by Hendsco on 2017/09/17 18:04
Few years ago game was a lay to play. It has since been ruined due to the greed of the app developers and the weekly to daily updates. If you don't care to spend any money playing a game, don't wast your time with this one.
False advertisers coupled with bad support
by VixInc on 2017/09/17 17:54
Not sure how Apple and Machine Zone don't get sued over this game. That said, if you have plenty to spend and don't mind getting stolen from, it can be fun about once a month when they have kill events vs. other kingdoms.
Seriously?

Don't Play
by Tessa590 on 2017/09/17 04:20
This game used to be so much fun. Now it's just a game of who has the most money. You have to be willing to spend thousands of dollars just to keep up with all the new stuff they keep coming out with. Now you can lose everything you've worked on in one single attack. It's depressing. Bottom line- don't play this game. It's not worth it. I wouldn't give it any stars if I could.

Well what use to be fun has now turned into a rich man's game. MZ is going power hungry for money and unless you want to spend thousands of dollars to keep up it is best to walk away. The fun in this game has been lost.
Expensive
by Kickstart119 on 2017/09/16 19:19
If you like to spend a lot of money to be on top just to have it become outdated a day later so you can spend more money, then this is the game to play!
Fun, but too expensive to keep playing
by hawksnbroncs on 2017/09/16 18:12
Can't play very long for free. Packs are way overpriced!!!!
Can't succeed at this game without going broke.
by :()$&@ on 2017/09/16 17:45
I used to play years ago and did great and belong to a top team. I was a level four and enjoyed playing. Than my IPad broke. I recently got a new one and downloaded the game and my profile. I had thousands of chests and upgrades from my city just hanging out. Everything was gone so I put up a week long shield and used all the stuff that had accumulated to build and upgrade for the week. Right when my shield expired I was attacked, destroyed and my hero taken. There are just to many massive players who spend tons of money, to accomplish anything in this game. You work all hard at it and ultimately become a farm for bigger fish. There should be some kind of levels or something, how do you defend when you're a level 18 city and a level 80 comes along and wipes the floor with you? No fun, not worth the time...
Oh Yeah

Game of War personal view
by Dragonhubter on 2017/04/07 16:56
Hi, in the time I have been playing Game of War, I have realized that it can become very addictive really fast. At the same time you have the opportunity to join other alliances, meat New and great people from alliances, and over all just have a tun of fun. The only thinking I would want to see different that would personally help me out, and a lot of smaller players also is if like for one 48 hour time a month, they have the opportunity to buy the biggest, best, and most current packs for 50 % off. If they could do that it would majorly help, and I believe that a lot more people that start out and end up quoting at a small level because they can't build up fast enough, would stay and have a better chance to grow, and then even more fun in the game. So I hope that you can consider what I have said and hopefully find a way to make the highest packs available for a short time once a month for 50% off, it would help every one and in the long run you would as a company would benefit by a lot more sales. You would in the long run be making a little more money at the same time as helping us. Thanks for the fun gaming opportunity and I hope if you are reading this trying to decide if you want to get it, do. You will love it, and enjoy it all. Happy gaming. Sincerely Dragonhubter.
Meh😒
by NaSims1 on 2017/09/02 02:29
Few years ago when I started playing the game, it was fun and exciting. The game gave you a purpose for logging on and staying up late. No matter what your power level was or your alliance ranking, you wanted to log on so you can build, grow and train your army to trod the battlefield field, attack your enemies and watch them Burn. Now, it's all about money. It is no longer a strategic game. It more about who can spend the most money to upgrade their "Stronghold" then brag about it. When you joined a good alliance you were able to work together and grow. NOW, the game forces you and the alliance to spend money to upgrade and the packages are expensive. Sometimes it give you nice discount on the packages, but who wants to spend their waking moments chasing down a deal for upgrades. While I do understand that you have to spend a little money and I was aware of that when I decided to play the game, but come on guys it's getting a little excessive. I find that more people are deciding to leave the game some of which are the founding members of there alliance and this is sad. Even though we write about the issues we have with the game, it seems that it will never change. Game of Wars will continue to do what is best for them and not their loyal gamers. It's sad to say but If you are new to the game and are thinking about starting to play, I would recommend spending your money on something else
A total divestment! Nothing free about it!
by Oneupmike/G'Clan on 2017/07/15 06:11
I started a little over 3 years ago. Enjoyed it but spent more than I should have on an app...thousands! It was still fun because it moved slow enough to play, pay, and contemplate. The social aspect is great also. I miss those days of GoW gaming. As many of the single star reviews state...this is a money pit. There's NO WAY to play WITHOUT paying. The game changes so fast you are going to have to spend constantly to just be a person who can donate troops to a rally. The requirements to advance in levels change all the time also. So you accumulate items, gear, resources, etc that end up rotting in your inventory...waste. There were some aspects in the early GoW days that you could at least spend a minimal amount a year and have fun...for those that played then...it was called "trapping". You can't even do that without spending a ton. It really is sad to see what this game has turned into. Please don't waste your money (or go into debt!!!) on this game. Just a word of wisdom...if you see an app in top grossing section of your App Store, and it's listed as "free"...it ISN'T. There have been plenty who have spent on this game and regret it to keep it in the top for awhile. It is slowly declining because of MZ's greed. Just don't play. I gave it 2 stars because of the social aspect...I have met some great people here. Avoid MOBILE STRIKE, also...same maker!
Beware! Addicting yet developer greed
by Twocastles on 2016/11/08 22:42
The game was fun to play, and I found myself buying pack after pack in my desire to grow. Then it finally dawned on me. I'm dropping hundreds on a pointless game that I'll never be "the best" at and can't keep up with. MZ makes changes so often. Every time I was on the cusp of being competitive they released something stronger. It's never ending and the cost to grow higher and higher is astounding. People are spending thousands on this game, in many cases they don't have that kind of disposable income. And I feel horrible for spending a couple hundred. Anyhow. It's addicting. To start out is annoying. They literally charge you for everything. You want to go to the dungeon? You have to buy a one time use key. So every time you want to go to the dungeon, you have to pay. It used to have nice drops in the dungeon. Now the drops are weak until you get beyond level 6. But to make it that far you need good gear. Of. Purse you have to pay for a CHANCE to get those. There hasn't been prospector chests in well over a month, so if you don't have that set, you can't get it until the next time they deem it worthy. Arrrghh! It's frustrating. Leave! Leave now! Do NOT play this game or any other pay to play. Better off buying a PS3 or XBOX or PC and get games for those. Don't fret about spending $50 on a game either. Because if you play these types of pay to play games, you'll drop $50 a day easy.
Great Game but VERY TRICKY too!!!
by Mitch000000 on 2016/05/20 11:38
I love playing this game. It's very interesting, challenging and competitive. HOWEVER, this game is about money; getting money from the people who is playing. My bad experiences: This happened to me more than one time, and I'm starting to believe the game is setup to do this to us so we can spend more money to rebuild of city. It takes a lot speedups and resources to train troops especially if they are high power troops. To protect your troops while you are not on the game, you will have to use a shield on your city. When I had low power troops, I put a shield on my city for 3 days. When I woke up, my troops were attacked, killed and hospitalized; but I wonder how when I had a shield. Recently, I had millions of high power troops that I spent billions of resources on and 100's of hours of speedups on. I then activated a 3 day shield on my city to protect them. I logged off the game. When I returned, all my troops were attached and killed. I contacted the help center and they insulted me by crediting with some things that I could have got on my own. These actions make me believe that this game gets you attacked purposely, so you can spend more money to rebuild after being attacked badly by power players. My advice to you if you are interested in playing is: DO NOT SOEND ANY MONEY because it will make you emotional after being wrongly attacked.

Honestly, They should give an option of less than a star or none at all for games like GoW. Don't get me wrong, this game started off great: I enjoyed building my city, making friends, I invested my money and time to support my alliance and NOW it seems that it was for nothing. GoW is no longer playable with the flood of weekly new upgrades, the increased glitches and lag times, the devaluing of my account, useless items, and increased expense. Unless you are willing to spend hundreds a week and thousands a month, it may be against your best interest to play. If I could change the fact that I ever invested a penny in this game, I would. The people you meet in game are great, but I stopped spending/playing back in December, and wish I had made that decision sooner. As someone who invested thousands into this game, the numerous updates became impossible to keep up with. My account that was one of the best in the Kingdom, based on power and size, and it became obsolete just like that. I would not recommend this game, and if you've taken time to read this and the numerous other honest reviews, you should head warning and stay away - unless you have an indispensable cash flow because you'll need it to keep up with the 1% of players that are still willing to pay; everyone else is packing their bags and calling quits. Less activity, more dead accounts.. not so fun. Good job, MZ! You've really outdone yourselves this time. 👏 .. 👏 .. 👏
Love the Game But Needs Imporvement
by SpellMaestro on 2016/12/02 01:54
This is a great game in so many ways. Fun people, and all kinds of way to build a monster of an avatar. I have a few issues that bother me: 1) Almost impossible to play without WiFi. I'm a Rank 4 in my Alliance - which means I have to make sure the Alliance Help is being supported and also manage resource deliveries along with coordinate attacks among other things. The chat never loads up without WiFi and the Alliance section doesn't load up with updates, even my bonus gifts can't Open without wifi. This needs to be improved ASAP. I can't even put up a Peace Shield without WiFi. This is a Flaw until fixed. This game requires hundreds of dollars just to be competitive, yet they can't fix this issue? People are going to revolt until this issue is fixed. 2) I feel sorry for the players who don't have the hundreds to sink into this game just to protect themselves from the bigger players AND grow. I have no problem sinking money into a game, but I see a lot of folks in the Alliance struggling to build their Power high enough to contribute to coordinated attacks and also defend themselves and the Alliance. You can't even open up vital buildings unless you purchase enough gold using real money. I'm hoping the Devs find solutions to these obvious and growing problems with Game of War
Not Buying Any More Packs!!!
by GodChaser1988 on 2017/07/15 13:55
I have been playing GoW for about a year, and I only stay for the contacts I've made in my alliance. Otherwise, this game is only nice for the people who can spend $1000 / month or more to build their empire and their alliance. The really big players in the game spend as much as $20,000 in a week. The problem is that those really big players are allowed to hit the much smaller players who can't afford to spend much on the game, and of course MZ is going to cater to the spenders. If you can't afford to spend at least $200 / month, you won't get anywhere in this game, and it's a waste of time and money. Update 7/17: 2 years now, and MZ continues to get worse and worse. If you spend the money to buy a pack today, the items you bought are useless tomorrow because MZ is releasing new things so fast, even a lot of the bigger spenders are quitting because people can't keep up with the changes. Yes you can play for free but all you have is a social FarmVille if you don't spend. At this point, MZ is releasing new stuff so fast that if you can't spend at least $1000 per month, you really can't keep up. I've finally decided to set a 30-day shield & stop buying packs. Makes me sick when I think about the fact that I've spent enough money on this game to buy a house & it means nothing now!! It's a total waste & MZ absolutely DOES NOT CARE about anything but taking your $$$!
Packs
by ALANMILLER12000000 on 2017/07/23 14:27
So as I know everyone knows the only way to get good is to spend money. Nothing wrong with that you don't want to spend money play a different game. But I am one of those money spenders and I have a complaint. I just spend $200 about. And got a few packs that guarantees t8 troops so I go to the ultimate combat and forgot I needed t6 troops to continue only problem is I don't have any water shards. So I am unable to get to t8 which is a bummer because I have all t7 and 8 materials. Not much of a guarantee t8 if you can't get to them. I also contacted them and they won't even give me water shards. How money hungry are y'all seriously there are no packs with water shards how am I supposed to get them? Also to get my SH to higher levels I need my academy higher... the only way to get that is to upgrade my gear workshop and I can due to missing items. Funny thing is when I Bought the pack with the gear workshop in it it came with nothing to upgrade with. So I didn't mind it and bought a few more packs. Once I needed to upgrade my SH a few more levels and couldn't due to missing materials I got upset. Thing was the very next day a new pack came out with the items need to upgrade this building. I'm not going to spend money over and over again. PUT THE RIGHT CORRISPONDING THINGS IN PACKS.
game ruined by daily updates & MZ greed
by saltfork squatch on 2017/08/27 14:22
this used to be an incredibly fun game, but has taken a serious turn for the worse in the last few months...it is not a "FREE" game...sure, you can download it for free, but don't expect to be able to play...the math used makes absolutely zero sense...they don't even use real numbers to calculate anything...what exactly is 1KTT...lol...they use these unreal numbers to complete fuse and bait people to spend money...they put stuff in their packs, and never deliver the goods...it's always "bait & switch"...advertising things in packs that you never receive...I have been playing for almost 4 years and remember when they had their "GUARANTEED last VIP level ever at VIP 20"...that was a huge lie & marketing ploy...you can now obtain VIP 200...there have to be several laws that this company is violating by fraudulent advertising...the better business bureau & fair trade commission should be contacted by anyone who ever spent money, because MZ has robbed us all & continue to lie in their advertising...also, if you have an issue, don't expect any customer service to help...they do t actually have customer service...everything is an automated response & they never address the issues brought to their attention...I used to tell everyone to play this game, but now, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone...stay away from this game & anything else MachineZone has their name on
Pay to be surrounded by jerks
by Gamer4Life0713 on 2017/03/23 03:15
I started playing this game about a month ago with the intention of spending no money as I was led to believe from other positive reviews. But with the constant advertising thrown in your face you start to think "just this one time" which of course is not the end of the story. You will be constantly attacked by other players with power levels in the trillions (it takes a full, strong alliance to rally against a single player with power levels that high), so you contemplate how helpful buying a pack would be to progressing your city even after a massive defeat. You can put up a peace shield around your city but don't forget what time it expires. I had been attacked literally one minute after my shield expired and I was not there babysitting my IPad. Playing the "free" game, you'd be lucky to get your power level into the high thousands, but up against players in the hundred millions and trillions, you're just feeder fish to piranhas. Don't bother gathering resources unless you intend on losing your troops to resource stalkers that would love nothing more than to boost their kill numbers. Do yourself a favor and read the most critical reviews, they are not exaggerated! Anybody who has written a positive review must either work for MZ, or have been compensated in other forms. My advice, don't get started with this "pay to play" game. You will regret investing your time and your money.
Absolutely NOT a free game
by Madman Fury on 2016/11/20 22:49
Don't get me wrong, I will pitch in a little money to fund developers to create awesome. Games, but here is a letter I wrote to the developers. I played for over three years. I came back to see if anything had changed. Yup! They want more money... Well, I tried to come back. But there are no two ways around this game. You must pay to play. To unlock basic features you have to buy a pack. I was ok with buying a $5 pack. But then it didn't come with all you stated it would. O gift mode. No garrison plot unlock. Still can't buy a DBC, even though I go to the sales every time it comes on. I even wrote to you about it. You couldn't even answer the problem. First you put in a standard cut and paste response that did. To address my question. When I wrote back I got a simpl,e...I don't know. Then why are these people allowed to help at the help desk. So, why continue to call yourself a free to play game. There is no way to play for free and succeed. This will be my review as well... I saw that y'all were the number one free to play revenue game last year. That's a shame. I got 50,000 of 2 different chests. All I could craft out of those 100k chests, a head piece for each armor...that really blows chunks! Good luck! These are typical reviews and rants that I hear daily on line in the game. Don't even begin to play unless you have a few extra 10's of thousanfpds of dollars wasting away. Or you WILL NOT SUCCEED!!! DEFINITELY A BUYER OR PLAYER BEWARE GAME!!
Fun but just way too expensive
by kfkhlf4 on 2017/04/29 15:09
It's a fun game and all but you have to spend hundreds of dollars to keep up in it. I've spent very little and am in an alliance with some big spenders but I can't help them much unless I'm willing to fork up a few hundred bucks. One of my alliance members told me he spent over $500 on one research tree. I am having fun playing it but I can't recommend it to anyone I know since it's not worth the cash. Oh and the packs that you spend money on get more expensive the more of them you buy so the first is $5 and then it only offers $10 and $20 and then it keeps getting more expensive so also keep that in mind. Edit: I caved and bought the $20 pack and now the game offers$50-$100 packs. That $20 pack did make me grow about 10 times in power but I'm still orders of magnitude below most other active players. There is a confusingly structured inferno event which makes it look like you can just buy $20 in gold and get the trillions in resources you need at the higher levels but you won't get anything until you spend at least $100. So the game is just getting more expensive. I can't recommend this game unless you're ok with spending thousands. Oh and the most common purchases list here in the App Store is definitely wrong because buying gold on its own doesn't do anything for you.
Fun
by Islandblue mountain on fire on 2015/11/23 00:09
This game is a lot of fun but it is very time consuming. It does lag a lot sometimes and crashes quite a bit. It is a very addicting game so be warned lol. I wished they would have an open all button for the treasure chests it takes up a lot of time to just open each one and if you have multiple chests it can take forever. Hoping they can add a solution for this. You can buy an account from someone who is selling the account could already be ready to go. The time for research is a bit extensive and long... And takes loads of RSS aka resources to build, train troops, and research. I think the merging of kingdoms is a really bad idea I have experienced one and it is the worst. They give you the options to buy packs but that is like a huge hole in your pocket. You can join the game and if you learn it and learn to strategize correctly you can build up your account without spending money. Gain power and join a good alliance that has a high gift level you can get a lot of gifts and help yourself grow. Do not allow this game to take priority over your life that's the best advice I can give you! Overall it is a very fun game to play in your down time. You can meet some great people of all ages the chatting is really awesome. Have fun with this game if you play it just remember that it is after all only a game don't get wrapped up in it like most people do. Have fun! Rose
Gow & mobile strike
by Iamdjp on 2017/05/30 05:33
MZ creates games for a single reason - to make money. Their actual business is big data analytics and create these games as their sole revenue source to support their developers working on their true biz strategy which is data crunching analytics (I know I live in Silicon Valley and see their job postings). I spent over $50,000 on GOW in early 2014. Today if I spent $500 I would have the same "game benefits" because of super inflation. Don't waste your time on any game by MZ. This include their Arnold "mobile strike game". They are seriously after your money. I learned the hard way which many have as well. If you download a game that has a commercial on TV and says "free to play" you must understand it's not at all free to play. They are advertising on tv - this takes money. Think for a moment before you play. And if you don't mind spending more than $100 a day to play a game, realize any dollar you spend today will be worth 1/10th in a few months. The devs need new players to join and play which means they'll inflate packs so that new players who join (which they need to keep you involved) will be able to spend $100 to compete with what you spent $1k on less than a few months earlier. And the cycle will continue indefinitely until the game gets a bad reputation. Which is why Game of War has now become mobile strike.
Game of War- Review
by Cool ouzo on 2015/08/17 08:48
Game of War is a very unique, strategic-based app that requires the best of patience in people and usually results in having good rewards for that; granted that this app has a total pay-to-win system, it's still possible to play this app without paying a penny. Seemingly enough, the app works well (occasional crashes) but never has any major "bugs" or "viruses". The game is graphically not too bad, for an app, it's considered mediocre. If you're biased on Clash of Clans or Boom Beach or any birds-eye view app, then you'll surely enjoy this app as it passes off time rather than other apps that take time- this app, can be an entertainment user. To get to the cons of this app, I'll start off by saying that the pay-to-win is incredibly advertised throughout the app- you'll never be able to get rid of it (even when you buy a pack) and it'll stick with you till you delete it. This is something I can't really get into, and I don't see why it's a MUST to continue advertising; the final con I have is that there's a lot of time to be put into this app. A LOT of time. You're going to have to pay lots of attention to focusing on your quests and journeys if you're looking to get far. Waiting to become better will not make you better. PLAYING IS WINNING! In all, Game of War: Fire Age, is a 4.5/5 for me and I recommend it to anyone who's serious about these games and needs some serious time burners.
Pay to win & game breaking glitches
by Mauler Jr. on 2016/11/27 04:50
This "free to play" game is definitely a pay to win; I paid for the $5 pack to get started and it did make the game more enjoyable for me, then I started realizing that although I was increasing my power at a decent rate, there are a handful of "alpha" clans who have trillions or billions of power per player and the only way to do this is by spending more and more money. Some of these people have dropped hundreds upon hundreds of dollars on this game and it's made them unbeatable. They get to do whatever they want and basically "bully" the little guys into staying shielded all the time, taking away from gameplay for everyone else. The biggest problem for me however, is the game breaking glitches that exist; one of my alliance members sent troops for a rally, they were all killed but his upkeep is still high and he can't put a peace shield up because it says he has troops out on offensive marches. So he just keeps getting hit over and over by those "big fish" I mentioned above, losing his hero and he can no longer play the game. He's STILL waiting on a response from MZ. It's a fun game, to a point. I just wouldn't recommend putting too much into it unless you're willing to put EVERYTHING into it and potentially be left glitched out at the end of the day.
Needs Improvement
by Nightsong66 on 2016/11/30 13:30
I like the game well enough. I've been playing it since I got my smartphone about a year ago, and it's relatively enjoyable. But there's a few things that irk me: 1) Research time. It starts out small, a couple hours maybe, but then it grows to over 1000 DAYS??? I mean seriously, I thank you for the free speed-ups in the Athena's Chests, but I am not waiting practically TWO YEARS for my research to finish. 2)Teleportation. I have a love/hate relationship with this feature. I like being able to jump around and use my treasure maps, but when people attack me as soon as my shield drops (though many have given me a couple hours between the shield dropping and their first attack) and attempt to zero out my resources, and then teleport away like a coward before ANYONE in my alliance can retaliate? That's when I hate it. I have a couple other complaints, but those are two of my biggest ones. I do like the game, and for the most part, I try to play daily. It's fun, a decent city-builder, and you get to wage all-out war on (other than your alliance) a kingdom full of players. You help your alliance members with construction and research, healing their troops, and sometimes you find friends among the other players.
Pay to Play
by xXD4RK1Xx on 2017/03/16 00:30
Terrible game design makes this game practically pay to play. You'll literally be one of the weakest players in any kingdom unless you pay to play. And to keep at the top you'll have to spend 100's of dollars MONTHLY. While updates are usually good, in this game they're basically just more upgrade options for players who pay for it. Past around level 21? You'll basically be stuck in a rut and won't be able to upgrade anything unless you pay. This is because you simply won't be able to get the amount of resources that are available to everyone because you simply can't farm them quick enough or in large enough amounts. Furthermore you'll reach a point where you can't upgrade because of the requirement of exclusive resources that are only available to player who pay because there is literally no way to obtain these resources except by paying for them. This includes things like brass rods, hammers, heroic medals, fire shards, and the list keeps going on and on. They've also greatly reduced milestone chest drop rates which means some resources are even more difficult to obtain now, like gold. So just avoid this game like the plague unless you're looking for something to empty your wallet on, but you might as well just play something like MTG because at least you have a chance of making a profit from that.
The fun is Gone
by WinterMagnolia on 2017/02/13 00:07
I've been playing Game of War since just after it was offered. Originally it was a lot of fun because you weren't attacked constantly but allowed to grow. Now you MUST be shielded at all times and shields cost real money. If you aren't shielded against attacks your own alliance will attack you so no one else can take your resources or Hero. To be able to attack enemies or just protect yourself is expensive. I've read reviews of people who say they don't spend money. They might not, but they also can't protect themselves or grow (meaning completing higher & higher levels of research to enable upgrading buildings and training decent troops.) You cannot compete without spending $500 - $1000 minimum. Many of the people still playing are hard core and won't even talk to you if the haven't achieved levels of one billion plus. It was fun originally but now it's only fun for the people who have and will continue to spend serious money. If you aren't willing to do that, find another game. This is the reality and to those who'll try to call BS & say that I'm still playing so I must enjoy it and that I'm only mentioning the problems; I haven't mentioned ALL the problems like horrible customer service & having spent quite a lot playing, I'm hesitant to just dumping my investment.
GOW
by Locke645 on 2015/07/16 05:09
Game of War, in my opinion, is a pretty addicting game. I've been playing it for a few months now and haven't found any other game that I enjoy playing as much as I enjoy GOW. Unlike all the other games, those similar to GOW, that I've played, they have only taken your troops as your power. In GOW, however, it is quite different. Not only do your troops add to your power, but so does doing research and upgrading buildings. In this game, doing research is absolute key, I've found. It not only leads to massive amounts of power, but boosts all your things like troop health, attack, and defense. Resource production is increased, march speeds and many other things can also be greatly improved with research. I tell all new people to the game, focus on research. You want an army, yes, but you need the boosts from research and cores if you don't want to be slaughtered when you attack or you are attacked. It also helps if you keep all your buildings at the same level as you upgrade your stronghold to the next level because it makes it much easier the more you progress through the game, I know that from experience. Also, they provide some awesome packs. Even the $5 you can buy when you first start off can be very useful. But be warned, when you buy a pack, it is really hard to stop yourself from wanting to buy another one!!!
The GAME you love to hate
by BigWhiteVan on 2016/12/28 02:41
This is the most addicting game around. I have played many years and you won't be top player unless you spend money. Real money. Lots of money. And it is so popular that the system needs upgrading all the time and old devices can't keep up. So they crash. BUT!!!! It is still the BEST game out there. It has levels to achieve even in small non spending players. It teaches you to protect what you build. It can be destroyed. But that is a lesson everyone should learn. It is so much easier now to play than when it started. And many still play. The best part of the game maybe the chat system. Being able to live chat with people around the world to collaborate and achieve goals makes this game emotionally addictive as well as personally addictive. The translator is not perfect but ironically provides much comic relief. You can easily achieve a large city with a $20-$40 a month investment. Or 2-3 lunches at fast food. Think about it. A console game costs $60 and it never changes. Not to mention the $300 it takes to buy the console. And the $240 it takes to play online. Try GoW and see why people love to HATE it!!
Game of Wallet
by bassman61 on 2017/06/16 11:10
The game itself is relatively mundane and lacks excitement. The game graphics are reminiscent of something from 10 years ago and are rudimentary. There is really no battles to view, and the strategy is to spend the most money to have the latest equipment, biggest towns, most troops, etc. While advertised as a war and strategy game, this truly is neither. This is a game about spending thousands or dollars. The game is riddled with defects that MZ has no interest in addressing, instead they blame your device, the game version or your wireless connection. When there is a big battle, MZ's infrastructure is not equipped to handle it and the latency and lag time make the game unplayable and leave you vulnerable. The overall stability of the game would be classified as unreliable. Most players will experience at least 1-2 crashes over as many hours. I personally have experience as many as a dozen crashes in a 3 hour period. MZ makes no apologies for these issues, it instead actually told me in an email, the game is getting expense and buying packs is part of the game. And this means spending $100+ per week. The game is dying and the better players are leaving and either selling or abandoning the game due to MZ's sole interest of greedily grabbing money and little interest in developing a game and game community.
Dissapointed
by KingdomLaw on 2017/04/01 13:51
I have been playing this games for months, spent a couple hundred dollars. Everything was OK until I got my last pack. System glitched and I lost a reduction boost, wasting half of what I paid without boost. MZ didn't even answer and neither did Apple. This qualification is for both companies. I would have expected this from MZ but not from Apple. No answer given by either of both. Game is good, you have to pay to have fun honestly. If you have the bucks, go for it. If you're planning on not spending, probably isn't going to be very fun. It's easy to get hooked and you're forced to keep spending money constantly or your account gets devaluated. There's a new update every week or two weeks that make previous updates irrelevant. Also the packs offer tons of things every new week, so if you spend today 100$, next week you'll get 25% more, at least, in a new pack. The devaluation should be controlled given that they are intentionally devaluating accounts to make you keep buying. With 100$ today you can research what a month ago was 4000$ - 5000$. And the attributes that today cost 5000$ in a month will be 100$. Three years ago gold packs game with 26,000 gold. They started devaluating them and currently we are standing at 275,000,000 million gold for the same money, and also housands of trilions of resources.
Poor customer service, no way to advance without HUGE $$$ investment, STOP BEFORE YOU START
by Han-Shoots-First on 2017/08/12 20:36
I spend all my game funds just keeping peace shield up, without active powerful allies there's little chance of enjoying this game. Player interest is at an steadily declining low, because of lack of new content. Since 2016 there's been few useful modifications in the updates most to put more money grubbing buttons on the screen. You can hardly see your kingdom home screen for the sales icons. I've been playing for years and even spending money there's no guarantee you will get a package that contains want you need to progress m. Also it's near impossible to catch up with older players. If you started with Kate Upton you're likely bored with the lack of new content (they used to put out seasonal events at least). If you started with Mariah Carey's Athena you'll just spend all you CASH & gold on shields to keep from getting squashed all the time. It is ridiculous how hard it is to play without accidentally purchasing deals of the hour, seriously they will not forgive this blunders because they designed it with this tactic in mind. NO REFUNDS & Poor customer service & no way to advance without HUGE money investment, no point even as a time waster it's fun ratio is out weighted by its flaws.
Pros and Cons
by 466Augustus on 2015/09/16 09:36
This game is extremely addictive. Alliance/kingdom chats give you a opportunity to converse and connect with everyone you're playing with. It's very complex, unlike most apps which is great. However there are a couple downsides. I play on a iPhone 5s and while I don't experience too many problems, the ones I do notice could be devastating to anyone that has a lot of time/money into this game. This mainly revolves around shielding. A few times now I've had to reboot the game in the middle of a KVK KE as it hasn't allowed me to apply a shield. This tends to happen as my marches sometimes get stuck at their location. I've also purchased a pack in the past and was not given the bonus gold from it. I messaged MZ but they were not helpful at all. My biggest issue however is the fact that they fail to put out a decent Silver pack. Silver is the hardest rss to find and the tiles you gather from offer next to nothing. I'd also like to see them merge a few kingdoms together. A lot of them have a low population and there's not much action going on, which becomes boring. Please stop making new kingdoms so regularly and focus a little attention to the low population kingdoms please MZ! Over all...a great game with a few bugs to work out. I play constantly and have dumped in over $1000 but it's been a lot of fun and I've made some great friends doing so.
Horrible support team.. Never Ending glitches.. And a lot of money needed to spend
by Itzzsisibabiie on 2016/08/14 12:25
The game is nice. I hate how everything with this game is all money and they're packs are expensive too. If you want to get anywhere in this game you need to buy packs. When ever I have an issue with the game I have to email them and straight away they either belittle me like I don't know what I'm talking about or they say I'm lying; which I than have to send them a whole other email stating the issue AGAIN. Personally you shouldn't handle your services like this your Motto should be the customers always right. If I could attach some of the stuff these people have said to me in their emails it's just extremely rude and customer service shouldn't be saying those things. There's ALWAYS an issue with the game, never fails. I think they think that they can't have glitches with their game because every time you bring up a glitch they sound so appalled that you would bring something like that up. Another issue was my items going missing that mind you I paid for and I told them this and they said to me if I didn't know the name of said item that it couldn't be fixed; which surprise surprise I didn't know the name so they did absolutely nothing. For the most part the game is fun and you meet great people but, if you're going to take my money and a lot of it at that then you need to step it up.
What the real story is
by Sir smelly 124 on 2017/01/07 07:47
The story starts on a cold winter day in a small kingdom ruled by sir smelly first of his name this was the one true king of his kingdom but then one day he noticed something was off he sent an army out to scout the did not return from their long voyage it seemed the king was worried he could not tell where his soldiers had been any thought they could only be one person who could do such damage to one army he mind was racing he thought it was impossible he stopped fell to his knees and wept "why lord why would you curse me with this" the kingdom stoped to see their king on his knee they knew one thing could bring a kind to his knees like this they ran for shelter... BANG! A boulder the size of a cow comes flying threw the kingdom walls the kings face changed fear struck his body as he looked through the broken stone wall there was no catapult he knew what he was up against... silence around the towns centre the king shaking in fear as a shadow cast on the stone wall behind him he cries out "spare me for I am not born from fire I am not worthy" and shadow pulls an iron sword... the king cries "No I am not ready" then in one swift move.....WHAM.... the king is dead. The phone notification goes off to show the king was killed by he first game of war player..... TheLegend27
1st Bank of Machine Zone
by SerraZ on 2017/07/21 21:41
Do not download the game, it will become a major time sap and then be a complete waste unless you are willing to spend serious money. download is free but if you want to do anything in the game, it becomes pay to play. New features are released 3-4 times a week, making your account non-competive, and now players that spend in top 1% are allowed to update beyond what is currently available destroying other accounts that may not have spent nearly as much. You can easily spend $4-500 dollars a week just to be out dated the very next day! Further, with each update some new glitch allows non-maxed players to be zeroed, gear to disappear, or not even engage. And to add insult to all this, MZ now make players pay to boost during the kingdom kill events, those who can not afford to purchase the boost tokens run the risk of being zeroed if they participate. Any issues you may have will not be addressed, and if you find yourself zeroed because of an error of MZ part it will still be your fault. Do not expect any response or customer support, even those who spend hundreds of dollars a week still do not spend enough! Stay far, far away from all Machine Zone Games.. play FarmVille, its cheaper then updating just to buy shields in GOW - Serra
Great if you're smart about it.
by Kenyg1234 on 2017/03/28 11:01
When you first get in the game find an alliance with a high gift level and join. Make friends and be kind and you will grow fast for basically free. I've spent 5$ on the game and probably didn't need to. In my alliance the gift level is very high and the people who do spend money are generous and gift me and other smaller players so that our alliance is strong and not just a few players in it. I went from 400k power to 126m power in a hour, and then from that to 500m power the next day, and the day after that I'm now in the billions and have leveled up all my buildings fairly high. You don't have to spend a lot you just have to be nice and others will be nice to you. Have fun and don't get too upset if you get attacked because you can rebuild in literally 10 minutes if you ask your Big players for a blessing and some help. The only bad thing about it is that the MZ customer service is cruddy and never helps you out. They just say they're sorry and give you some reason they can't do anything, can't even type out the email they send you. Just Copy and Paste.
Buy something nice instead-
by Jetsam Rook on 2017/02/05 16:59
MZ built an app that is buggy, crashes, lags, and costs as much as a used car to be competitive in. On the backend, it's basically just a spreadsheet: your army + boosts - enemy troops + boosts. Feel like spending $100 on an app like that? How about 200? 1000? More? What if I told you the moment you do, and catch up in power after weeks or months, they'll roll out the next levels and upgrades just to make sure you *have* to spend more in order to capitalize on your investment. The chat system is the best part of the game - and it should be, because your interactions with people are the only good part of the game after a while and will keep you playing. It's NOTHING like advertisements, where you actually interact in battles. You just click "attack" here and wait. It's a pointless and pointlessly expensive game. And the hundreds or thousands you spend (everyone does after a while) won't even buy you quick and helpful support staff, just emails that are cut/paste and take days to receive. There's no way around spending, btw - eventually upgrades will take hundreds of years (literally) unless you purchase speed-up items. Save your wallet, download Dawn of Titans (a beautiful ripoff in 3D with interactive battle), and buy a flatscreen TV or a car instead.
Very Fun!
by BrJePe on 2015/05/15 10:56
GoW is a very fun game to play. I always wondered what the attraction is for one of these MMORPGs. Now I know. I have all but forgotten my other games and apps on my phone. I rarely even watch TV anymore because I would rather spend my time playing this game. It isn't just the game itself that is fun, it is the people you meet in this virtual world who are the true entertainment. You gain significant benefits for being part of an alliance, and choosing one with other active players is very important as they will help you and look out for your "empire" as you grow. If I love the game so much, why four stars? Although you can play the game for free, you will find, after the first couple of weeks, that you need to spend to grow faster. I have no problem with that, as the developers have to be compensated for the time they spent making the game. I would have spent more buying a console and games than what it takes here. There are people in my alliance who have been playing for months without spending huge sums of money. But to grow into the higher ranks of power in this game requires very large investments. So if you are looking for a social game and enjoy the interactions, you will enjoy this game immensely. If you want to be a major player and love being the biggest and baddest, this requires more than skill, it requires vast amounts of time and money. Try it and enjoy!
Bad business
by K McCain on 2016/04/07 00:33
I love playing this game. However, recently I had written contact support asking if they would exchange speeds if I purchased a pack. I received a reply saying they would do that for me. I purchased a pack and sent a request to have them exchanged. I was told to please tell them exact denominations so I broke down every speed up. I received an email saying they would get the conversion done as quickly as possible. Two days later I asked how the conversion was going. I got a reply saying this was no longer available. I wrote a couple more times asking why they would tell me yes, then have me break down each speed up, then tell me no. I got a reply saying it's no longer available and that they will no longer discuss this topic. If I had another concern to make a new request. I was extremely disappointed as I've spend a lot of money on this game. So I contacted apple and without questions, they refunded my money. I can't thank Apple enough. They took one look at my emails from mz and refunded my money in less than 24 hours. Be very careful what their support tells you, as they will say whatever you want to get you to buy then never fulfill their commitment. I'm very disappointed and will never purchase from them again. It's a great game but very poor customer service.
Laggy / Poor Customer Service
by Fire K34 on 2015/12/03 21:12
I have been playing this game for a few years now, since it was released. Initially is was a great game, addictive but however that has changed in the past year. The game has become very laggy, slow and unresponsive leading to losses in the game that may take either a lot of time to repair or a lot of money. I have dealt with this numerous times and have put in multiple complaints regarding how bad it has become. I have lost items in my inventory, have suffered losses due to game lag, marches not returning, getting booted while in a war, those are just a few examples but the list goes on. What makes matters worse is the customer service.... It is extremely horrible. They don't respond 80% of the time and when they do, the response is generic regardless of the problem. They ask for screen shots of a lot of issues but when provided they don't respond leaving a lot of issues unresolved. Recently MZ has made announcements of the game being revamped and being fixed, DONT believe them!!! The game is slower than ever, still boots me off, all they changed was offers in the packages they sell..... They have their priorities screwed up and are just wanting people to pump more money rather than actually fixing the game issues. I don't recommend this game, if you are still a player I recommend getting together and boycotting until they make a true effort to fixing the issues and make this game fun to play again.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD! NOT WORTH THE HEADACHE!
by ROOTzROCkREGGAE on 2017/07/26 23:07
Ridiculously priced packs that you need to buy to keep up with the game. New updates almost daily that make last purchase completely worthless forcing you to buy packs again. Greedy, greedy, greedy company. Horrible lagging and glitches, making gameplay frustrating. Wish I would've never spent that first $5. That's the only time the game is that cheap...after that it's $20-$100 per pack! This is insane. And even crazier for those who've already spent so much that they can't stop playing. No strategy is involved. Players who spend the most are the ones who dominate. Any veteran player will say the same. Lousy layout and graphics along with the constant annoyance of being bombarded by ads to buy packs. Was fun at first but now I just feel obligated to play since I've spent so much though not nearly enough as most. Also have been double charged a handful of times so have to go through the hassle of getting refunded. Save yourself the trouble and your hard-earned money by staying far away from this game. Trust me, it will be natural to want to spend in order to grow and advance in the game but then you'll get stuck and have to spend again. Don't...just don't. Not worth it.
Downhill slide
by DaeVol14 on 2017/04/18 15:44
This game can be highly addictive. The interactive social platform allows you to connect with cool people from all over the world. That being said, the game development has always focused on enticing players to spend money. Many issues effecting game play have been advertised as "fixed" but continue to occur rampantly to players as the developers focus is on releasing half-conceived and incomplete updates players must pay cash for. Customer service is a joke MZ created in order to avoid taking responsibility for their development and game issues-they will pretend they don't understand the question most of the time. And, if they do manage to understand the question, they blame the issues on everything from Internet connection to iTunes to avoid compensating players for their own server issues or bugs. The game used to require some skill, and advertises that money is not necessary to succeed. This is a lie. Many features of the game cost $5-$100 to unlock ($120 if you live in Canada!!!) and without these pay-to-play features, you cannot successfully participate in in-game events or battles against other players. Several of the game events only offer prizes for spending real money, and many of the other event prizes are not attainable without spending money.
STOP PAYING MZ!!!
by ToP_NoTcH_PLaYaZ on 2017/06/30 15:21
They know this game is coming to an end and losing lots of players everyday!! This game had lots of spenders at one point and now it's taking it out on the few idiots left willing to spend $100's a week!! They merged us to make it seem like there's a lot of players but look how many kingdoms there are now compared to before. Most of the dead accounts have disappeared. They are milking you idiots for everything they can. New Economic research ain't got nothing to do with the economics of the game? It's a trap!! You spend to reach the highest level and boom... another update. Spend $500 for your hero to reach level 110. I don't wanna know how much money you gotta spend to hit VIP70 right now. I've spent tons... got lots of resources that I can't even use anymore because they changed all the resources to something else. I will shield for one month and when I check back in I bet I see Stronghold 50's. Hero level 200, VIP 200, and probably 5 new tiers of research!! Stop paying these greedy game developers. Your all fools!! I'm a fool for staying and paying as long as I did!! I regret the thousands of dollars I've wasted on a stupid app. It's not even cool really. There are better graphics on an Atari (if you remember what those are).
Dont do it! RUN THE OTHER WAY!
by Bluesgirl32 on 2017/07/19 14:31
I have played this game since the beginning. It WAS a Great game, compelling strategy with updates every month or two, as well as meeting loads of good people made for a very addicting PAY TO PLAY game (nothing is free to actually compete). But since Dec 2016 Machine Zone decided that it was time to get way richer than they were already getting by dropping advancements in the game every 1-3 days, which of course meant that you had to buy to stay active in the game. Then last Thursday they released an "upgrade" for the extremely wealthy that took hundreds out of the game in less than 3 seconds by allowing those that could afford it to go past the normal upgrades to wipe out everyone else that wasn't under a "protective shield". I'm not talking about the person that spends $10-$20 a month, Nope Im talking about the people that spend several hundred (stupid i know) per month! Take my advice and NEVER DOWNLOAD THIS APP!! And i'd like to share the response i got from MZ Customer Support when i ask why they would allow this to happen, and I Quote "Some players wanted to achieve more in our game, SO ONLY FOR THEM we have released additional features." As i said before...just DON'T download this app for your sake.
What a great game
by dreamerkoh on 2015/01/11 08:43
You'll need to form alliances within Game of War, teaming up with other countries and sharing resources and supplies. These aren't always the most trustworthy agreements - sometimes their king will attempt to overtake yours in the name of leadership. However, a good Alliance is nice to have, especially when you're crushing a rogue country under your boot, making them pay for dastardly deeds and displaying true power. With Game of War, though, it takes a while to get there. Like the best MMOs, or "grind-fests," it takes time and perhaps money to build a nation. Don't expect to jump in and have your ideal kingdom in minutes. Thankfully, the investment is worth it. Machine Zone has a great gameplay system where it's relatively easy to select your resources and take your kingdom and soldier to new heights. Crafting new weapons is a delight, as you can see how they take effect in the game's real-time battles. The scope of these battles is impressive, especially if you're a fan of epic fights. Some more intimate one-on-one encounters for leadership would've been nice, but the game does fine without them. Game of War looks good. You can see how your kingdom's growth is coming along, while keeping an eye open for neighboring allies - or enemies - with ease. However, this game is best played on an iPad, as it may be too hard to navigate on a tinier iPhone screen.
Free-misleading***CASH COW
by Kiwistraw1 on 2017/06/30 19:31
Like a lot of free apps this is free to begin with. You can continue to play free but it is very limited. The only way to really grow is by putting out money & it continues to ask for more & more money. If you don't spend cash you will take a long time to advance....^^^^update on review of game...as others have mentioned there are ridiculous amounts of resources needed to build, research or train troops but those are only part of issues, MZ requires time periods for each item to complete & some of those will take literally over a million years to complete; unless you buy speed ups to shorten the time. I reached the max level on my city for about a month. The game had top level of 30 on cities then upgraded to 35 now it's higher & doesn't look to have an end & I've only been playing for about 11 months....I believe MZ will continue to make it bigger & more expensive as long as people spend...I heard someone spent 1.4 million & they embezzled that, and that money was spent before the new improved upgrades!! SO WATCH OUT.. right now I play & REFUSE to spend any more, I spend my time staying shielded, collecting resources, killing monsters & most of it chatting with friends. Why pay for that?
MZ are crooks
by S8bites on 2017/07/17 22:49
Please don't download or start this game. Not only is it ridiculously expensive to play, but MZ puts staff and beta testers in the game just to burn the cities of others to promote more pack buying. There is an alliance called One, lead by Ctesse who has like 7-15 accounts and the people who play that account reported they get packs that cost players $99 USD for $5. Ctesse continues to have updates before other players and very obvious it's MZ related account. Even if upgrades are out, it takes time to click all the buttons, especially on your research treees; but the One alliance miraculously have it all upgraded fully in minutes. 3 days ago this account tore through several kingdoms that btw cost $100 for every kingdom teleport and was zeroing people's cities ($1000's of troops) with just one hit due that the upgrades ctesse had that non mz players did not. Also mz does give away stuff in hand to help you, but the amount and items do not help in any manner. One building or research can cost you 800 billion days and over a trillions of resources to complete, but you might get a million or couple of million resources to complete a quest. There are better and cheaper games out there. THIS GAME IS A LAWSUIT JUST WAITING TO HAPPEN.
A Money-Hungry, Dying Game
by DSDNGR on 2016/05/02 21:56
I have been playing for 2 years now and have seen the game through many changes and advances. I've spent loads of money trying to keep up with the game's updates but it's nearly impossible to do without a thick wallet. Once sales started popping up for days that weren't even holidays or weekends, I knew that MZ (developers) was getting desperate. They are now advertising a "May Day" sale. Last week they had a "Hump Day" sale; they are probably losing loyal players because power is so unachievable these days. Strategy used to be of value and now anyone can come in and outgrow you if he's got enough money, killing the strategy aspect of the game. For those that moderately spend, they thriftily become rally traps and you spend a good amount of the kill event just looking for a target that you won't be point-deficit in hitting. I've watched numerous loyal players leave after years because the sales have caused such an imbalance amongst players and they are tired of paying to keep playing at their current level. I am tired too and will be selling a bundle of six accounts in hopes of getting some of my money back. Time to spend it on something worth the investment. The game is just not fun anymore. Don't waste your money (and you will) or time on something you'll just have to keep upgrading every month at the cost of 3x $100 gold packs. Goodbye GOW!!!
It's like throwing your money in a hole.
by Just don't play this game on 2017/06/21 02:02
I played for over a year as a free user. I started to purchase packages, roughly $200 all together. I was in a great alliance. I was a very powerful player for pretty much doing it all for free. I started to noticed as the game grew in popularity they started pumping it with "new" in-game features, making to many items, making it nearly impossible to complete anything without having to spend a lot of money. I stopped playing for a little bit and came back recently to chat with some old friends and now the game is just trash. If you can even get it to go past 70% loading then I applaud you. I have a brand new iPhone 6s+ 4g service and on wifi and the game just does not run like it use to. It's probably because of to much garbage they are filling it up with. One thing that may speed up the in-game play is allowing users to disable all the freaking "purchase gold" ads/pop ups. I would not install this game it is a waste of time, space on your phone, and money. Anyone who has stupid money to spend then this game is for you. However remember this is just a video game. Why don't you spend your money on something real and that actually has a purpose.
Good game
by Evansapple123 on 2017/02/04 15:13
This game is fun. It takes a lot of time and money to do well. I'm one of those players who doesn't spend any money. The game will give you enough overtime to keep you going. I will never be a top player. When you play like me you need to find a good easy going alliance which doesn't expect a lot out of you. My alliance is great for my purposes. We hunt monsters. We don't spend a lot time fighting wars. Also, as a younger castle you need to keep watch out for bully castles who attack when unshielded. This is especially important when you reach level 15 because you will lose your hero in the attack. Without a hero you can't do much of anything because you lack most boosts. You can buy shields for gold but it gets expensive so you have keep an eye out for when you need it. The game early on takes a lot of time. Before level 21 plan on spending minimally 1-2 hours per day. At the higher levels, you only need to log in 10 minutes a day to maintain your castle. Also if you are not going to spend money, make sure to conserve your gold. Only use it to resurrect your hero. You will need it later for research. Enjoy!
Don't waste your time or money !!
by Allnicksaretakenblah on 2017/07/29 00:50
It's unfortunate to see this game go down like this. Unless you spend $100 or more a month just to maintain your account it's not worth it. Then when you do spend money everything you bought gets outdated in a week or two at max. They pay people to play with super accounts that just go around killing your city so you spend more. They don't listen to their players or care for that matter anymore. Spending $200 only makes you a top player for two weeks. New updates come just about every two weeks so if you aren't paying attention you will lose it all then need to spend $200 to get you back to where you were then $200 to get you ahead again for two weeks. Don't waste your money it's just not worth it anymore. MZ is a very greedy company that is only exploiting its few remaining loyal players and is not looking for new ones. They have practices that if everyone knew they did no one would even play. With as many bad reviews as they have how would they have 4 stars still. Sounds like someone is paying off Apple/App store. If everyone quit the game for a month or stopped buying they would change their tune. Boycott Game Of War!!
Why not correct price
by Ikea4 on 2016/01/07 13:08
The game cost a lot of money if you want to play competitively. It can be a boat load of fun though once you get hooked. There are glitches that do happen to some and actually happened to me. That cost me a few hundred dollars and actually the fault was on MZ. They did finally manage to respond and of course did nothing to really help except give me a couple of peace shields. It should've been an insult but after two weeks when I did hear back from them, they actually sounded concerned. The point is they are improving. They aren't perfect but they care enough to keep trying do I will stick with them. They variation in the price or tax paid on the gold packs is an issue since it really does add up. Prices are the same on game but billed over $8 for a 4.99 purchase. Wife spent a lot of money and there are over $200 in these extra charges. I'm going to raise the rating I gave initially because MZ is raising the level of service. Keep up the good work guys. Update: lately they have promised events and not delivered. There have been very few kvk kill events and the events that have happened require spending to participate in. That's not fun.
MZ is too GREEDY
by No More $ for MZ on 2016/01/28 22:29
This is a amazing game. The features and the style of play set it apart from all of the other downloadable apps. I've been playing for a year and am totally hooked. Aside from the actual game itself, it has a social component that truly enhances the game. I have met some really great people on GOW in the past year. Unfortunately, Machine Zone (MZ) had to ruin it with their never ending greed. Despite all the ads on TV, this is not a "play for free" game. It costs money. Lots of money. I am embarrassed to tell you how many thousands of dollars I have spent on this game; but I was okay with that. Like I said, the game is awesome and a lot of fun. What has finally gotten me to the point of quitting is MZ's insatiable lust for money. It is one thing to put a price on the game and spend to achieve that level play. Quite another to do what MZ has done: constantly raising the bar to make a high level of play untenable unless you spend 10 to 20 thousand dollars. Shame on MZ for their greed. My advice to those thinking about downloading this app: DON'T DO IT!!! Even though the game itself is so much fun and you will meet some awesome people, at the end of the day you will be left with considerably less money then you started with and never achieve that level of play you were searching for and deserve.
Great game/worst customer service
by Kimster112 on 2015/09/20 23:40
I love this game when it actually works or let's you log on, and the people you meet on here are the best. If you're looking for a stable platform, reliable game play, any sort of customer service or tech support then this is not the game for you. MZ by far has the worst customer service I've ever had the misfortune of dealing with. They don't care how much time or money you put into the game. The only thing they care about is how much more money they can squeeze out of you. Nothing that happens in the game is ever their fault: like being kicked during a rally, shields dropping early, lags that are so bad you don't know you're being attacked until it's to late, people porting in but not showing up on your screen, cores not activating when you use presets, etc. There are so many issues with this game and no matter how many people complain about them MZ does nothing to rectify them or compensate people who lose literally hundreds of dollars because of them. They just keep add more stuff to make more money. When you send a ticket in because of an issue, you'll get the same canned response they send everyone telling you it's your device, Internet connection anything except for their programming. It's sad to see how many dead cities are littering kingdoms because of MZ. Unless you're willing to spend thousands of dollars on a game, you won't last that long. The download may be free but that's about it.
Bottomless pit
by Jaminneb on 2016/07/23 22:52
I've been playing the game for a couple years now. The game is pretty complex with lots options to build up your city and interact with your alliance. This game has been available for a few years now, so there would be many players in your kingdom already playing the game for a long time, and their cities would be well developed and accumulated with exceptional power. It's a war game, and it's hard to grow power without putting your bank on it. There's not much protection against a more powerful player other than buying shields. The game constantly being updated and recent update puts almost anything you do requires you to pay for it, so the more you invest in the game to more you have to continue to pay to maintain or catch up to your opponents...it's pretty much an endless pit. The evil part of MZ is that they make the kingdom events (last a day long) that one can use to push to build up and obtain a reward when completing the tasks, they make it in such a way that you almost can reach the goal, and the last bit, you have to pay to finish. Anyway, this game is built for people with heavy wallets. If you haven't start, forget it, use your money for a new car payment...otherwise, you will always be the under dog, even with as much as you can dump into it...MZ greed...
