Used to be fun playing
by Chris Nilson69 on 2017/05/22 09:29
Used to be fun playing but not now! It's ridiculous now MZ puts out new stuff every day and you have to spend 100 to 500 bucks just to keep up which is total bs. And if you don't spend money on the game you will never catch up at all! Waste of time playing this game! Played this game for 3 years now and when I first started playing it was so much fun playing but now it's completely worthless and way to many glitches and the lag is horrible. Don't waste your time playing this
It's an amazing game but...
by kittiee on 2017/05/22 04:24
I loved playing it and played it for a whole year. Played every waking moment and it took over my life but I had no qualms with it because I simply loved the game. There are a few problems with it though as many others have written.... 1. you simply cannot keep up without either spending every waking moment playing (i used to wake up in the middle of the night to play casino to make extra money or buffs) or spend thousands of dollars which my guild members did on person spend 10k a month. 2. before all the updates fighting was impossible unless you had the latest and greatest iphone/ipad so that you make sure you don't lag otherwise you'll die instantly and then it takes you months again to catch up. 3. i wish it was an easy game to play, and pick up without having to shield all day long and worry that you'll be hit and scavenged for food. 4. i loved the game just wished it was more stupid proof and made so that we all can play it more casually. it's definitely a great game nonetheless.

The ads
by Wewweddfhfghnhkkngdxvdgs on 2017/05/22 02:26
We're so annoying that I just downloaded the game just to stop seeing the ad it sucked
Expensive
by wrj57 on 2017/05/22 02:12
Stay away from this game. It was a good game once but has now just turned into a money grab. What you do this week is outdated 3-4 days later and the only way to stay competitive is to spend money on their $99.00 packs. It's a never ending money grab, with poor customer service.
Decent

Overleveled people storm your base and It takes away all the fun but it is still good
To expensive
by vrshroomy on 2017/05/21 23:00
It may be free to download but to really be competitive you have to spend thousands of dollars at the game. To get to my next VIP level I would have to spend over $3400.
Frustrated
by jillamb on 2017/05/21 22:41
I have played over 2 1/2 years. It is getting to the point where packs are high (can't get far in game without them), they release new things to close together. You can't get used to something before they release something else.
Expensive Game
by Moemab on 2017/05/21 22:40
Dear reviewers, I have been playing this game for four years now and have made a tremendous amount of friends. With that said I cannot cannot afford to play this game. It is beyond ridiculous players having not only to shell out thousands of dollars but to shell out twenty dollars just to stay ahead of the curve. If we aren't constantly being forced to put money into a war game we are bombarded with lags, freezes or just being booted from the game all together. If it weren't for the simple reason that I made friends I wouldn't have stayed to play this game. I would have just wasted my time with the Kardashian game. It's beyond frustrating that I would rather spend my time on a a social app like FB to stay connected to people I have met thru your app. I will not ever waste my time or money on a pointless game or Machine Zone until these issues are handled directly and promptly. I don't need another generic MZ automated reply back I need and want to play a game that was once so enjoyable.
Great game

Deep Black Hole
by Kick-AssLV on 2017/05/21 18:38
I've been playing for over a year. Throwing money into it getting to the top - just to start all over again when new items/levels/gears/etc come along. Okay, that's the game. But, recently (since Christmas 2016), their rollout of new stuff has been in high gear. Every week there are new cores, new gear, new VIP, etc. There are the spenders who can afford $500-$1000 a week to be the 1st in their kingdom to have it all and burn everything in sight. Send you back to the Stone Age, so you have to spend hundreds of dollars to rebuild. A majority of us just want to have fun. Play with strategy. Form strong alliances. Off my soapbox. Get it if you want. Just be sure it is worth a mortgage payment/car payment and your utilities to keep up.
Ads are everywhere!
by Joe. Dude on 2017/05/21 17:39
I've been seeing ads for this everywhere, for years. A year ago, I downloaded it to see if it was actually as cool as it insinuated, but it turns out it wasn't it was nothing like the ads, and it was a complete money grabber. After I deleted it, ads continued showing up until this day. (And they will continue showing up until this stupid company goes bankrupt.)
Was a great game, no longer
by Bikerronl on 2017/05/21 17:06
I've been playing a long time, but I would not start new now. Way too expensive, no MZ support, the game shuts down by itself at the worst times, changes too fast, no consistency. It almost feels like MZ is trying to drive players away in order to shut it down.
Ridiculous
by SkylarMaR78 on 2017/05/21 16:51
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 maybe against your best interest to play. I have joined the GoW union effort to put a 30 day shield on and stop buying until MZ improves the game and makes it playable again.
Fun but costly
by Warrior N on 2017/05/21 15:37
It is an amazing game but have to spend a lot of money to keep up with your alliance and be alright at the game
Not as fun anymore
by AAllen71 on 2017/05/21 15:08
Need to slow down the updates and let the game flow come back. Invest some of that money we players spend to fix the glitches and improve the servers.
They don't tell you that can load packs
by We will see 84 on 2017/05/21 14:36
Just find a pack loader Mz doesn't care if you use a pack loader as long as they are getting paid smh spent so much and wondering why I could keep up with the rest of the kingdom I buy a 100 pack and they get them for 70-75 dollars a pack
Don't start playing - Not Free
by Training Wheels on 2017/05/21 09:59
The account you spend thousands of dollars monthly to create will never really be yours. Please read all the terms of play before you even start. Worst investment ever.

OH WOW GEEZ AWFUL!
by job1866 on 2017/05/21 04:20
Wow! If they had made this into that mini game we all get stuck playing but now really enjoy we would've had a great game! Hell I would've paid a buck or two and It probably would've been one of the few games if not the only game I would've never gotten rid of, Would've should've, could've, didn't!!! This is not that. This is awful. Can anyone fathom that people would pay this kind of money, I mean real cash, the kind you hold in your real hand, thats green and is part cloth, with that special ink, all dirty etc, that you use to buy real food in the real world, to feed you rreal family with, to pay your rent for the real world apt you live in. Ya see where Im going with this? Yeah, find another game. I don't care if 50 zillion people downloaded it, that dont mean you should. Think for yourself, be a leader, not a follower. Hell I even did, for all of 90 seconds........GONE! So in parting, this game is Not fun, nor is long term freebasing. Just dont bother!

Stop Now
by Zero 23 @.@ on 2017/05/20 16:45
You cannot play this game without spending money. If you don't spend money then you won't stand a chance. I made a mistake thinking if I spend around 25$ i would probably be able to hold my own but not even close. There's features in this game that you HAVE to purchase you can't unlock by playing. Regret everything and getting my refund on my money in a couple days. It's a fun game but it's literally a pay-to-win game.

Glitchy & expensive game with horrible customer support
by Xs104 on 2017/05/20 03:36
Adding to what was posted by many others: It would be a great game if it wasn't for MZ's crappy programming and horrible or non existent customer support. They made the game so complex that it will not run stable no matter what device or what internet connection you have. Getting kicked from game every 5 min is standard. And yet mz insists on replying to any complaints that all you have to do is reboot and the issue will be fixed. It's not. 100 people from 8 different countries, 4 continents and 15 different carriers have the same issue at the same time and Mz still insists the problem is with my device, not their servers. Don't waste your money on this
GOW.
by Jimi tona on 2017/05/20 03:23
Fun game. Especially if u got2much time on ur hands. Carefull not to indulge in the Sloth of it. All things in proportion. I wud be more inclined to purchase more of the packages if they were cheaper. Like different kinds of $5. & $10. & $15. & $20. Packages..
MZ paralyzed with stupidity
by RonnieG1120 on 2017/05/20 00:12
As people are reading, MZ has destroyed the games with their many off setting releases, beyond belief RSS requirements for research/training and rally leads. Each release costs 1200 to 3500 dollars per release, and they do this a minimum of 6 times a month now. This game is not fun, unless you spend 50,000 dollars upto a 100,000 dollars. Even then there is no strategy. The highest paying player wins. Even then, not always.....with the server glitches, a 5 dollar player with no hero can defeat a 100,000 dollar player in full gear and max march with full maxed research and the best gems. Pathetic is MZ. If you have now played, don't. This game has gone under and it will shut down soon. They are simply making as much as they can before the inevitable happens and they are forced to shut down. My game name is Puma out of Kingdom 856. I am one of the addictive personally disorders and i spent 87 thousand dollars on this game. And yet, i walked away because i lost too much being a rally leader. It is up to us to not feed the pig. MZ will not quit until we quit. Leave this game alone.
Game of war
by Mccrocksinsocks on 2017/05/19 23:44
Game of war is a good game if you have money without money you can't get anywhere it isn't fun and you can't grow
Mz too greedy ?
by HOLY DOMO on 2017/05/19 22:25
Every 2 weeks has a new expensive upgrade. You have to spend hundreds in order to be competitive in this game every 2 weeks. I think it's wrong to put out new upgrades before players have a chance to get the last upgrade done. Now the big spenders are able to smash everything even the best traps in the game. SLOW DOWN MZ. You're losing a lot of players that would have been ok the spend smaller amounts and still maintain competitiveness.
5 Star?
by Rayou1944126 on 2017/05/19 21:24
No, I'm good.
Free to play is a joke
by JimijeffGOW on 2017/05/19 19:09
If you want to play and not be a zeroed account immediately plan on spending and continuing to spend until you are sick of it. The rate of releases are insane. It used to be a fun game and still can be if you want to drop hundreds of dollars a month on it. In my opinion save your money and time and do something with friends and family. The only truly good part of the game anymore is the friends you can make while cursing at MZ. It's laggy and flakey as hell and it will always be blamed on your device and or network connection.
Forcing People to Play? Pathetic.
by Urgame Isbad on 2017/05/19 16:48
Forcing people to play your game is a good sign that your game is complete trash and people don't want to play it. -10/10 never want to see again Pls uninstall Valve pls fix
It's no fun
by Sockrat on 2017/05/19 16:45
The game used to be a lot of fun, but they no longer give you a chance to play with what you have before adding new updates. Too money hungry.
Not free
by ShaunaStegall on 2017/05/19 15:36
This game takes thousands of dollars to play. I take that back. Even if you've put thousands of dollars into your account you are probably considered irrelevant now. This is a rich persons game. The constant updates are ridiculous and I've actually lost friends I've met playing because they can't keep up. Our kingdom is dead because the people that can max out have and everyone else is shielded. So there's no one to attack so you just sit there with your giant money pit doing nothing. Thanks Mz for ruining a once great game
Awful
by DerpSong on 2017/05/19 13:55
The game is lacking in content and full of false advertisement, you run out of supplies almost all the time unless you spend tons of money for things that won't last for a day. AND STOP ADVERTISING CAN'T PLAY AN APP WITH OUT GETTING AN AD OR EVEN WATCH YOUTUBE.
Money pit
by Rob33406 on 2017/05/19 11:35
You will never be competitive unless you spend a couple hundred per week. Constant releases making what you already bought useless.
4+ years on game and $100k+ later
by Mozzimo on 2017/05/19 05:10
Monthly spend required to play this game is $2500 usd just to stay current on new features and the ability to compete. Game primarily caters / preys on players with highly addictive personalities that have deep pockets and use the game for therapeutical purposes. The game crashes and lags non-stop. One would think that a developer that has revenues over 600B would invest more in the stability of game vs selling $100 usd packs with obsolete gear and items that will never be used. All and all is a fun game, with a great social concept. But lacks the ability to scale. If I had one word to describe MZ (the game developers) in their approach to maintain and scale the game it would be - Greed
Great game gone bad
by Tkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk on 2017/05/19 04:58
Used to be best game out there. MZ greed is phenomenal as new items are constantly being designed that warrant spending $$$$ if one wishes to actually fight. There are infrequent kvk battle events which afford actual fighting - 1 battle event every 2-3 weeks and in the meantime new items and 'packs' become available for one to spend $$. Furthermore, with all the available statistics and high range statistically powerful items that are created there is no statistical analysis available via battle report after fighting. For example you won't know what your 100,000% defense item actually did for you after you've spent £££ to get that item to use. Lastly, mz can't be bothered to upgrade the other aspects of the game .... oh .... wait .... that wouldn't make them any money. Stay away unless you want to spend as much money as you would spend buying a car in order to be relevant in .... a game.
Worst game ever.
by BarBQerz on 2017/05/18 23:15
I had high hopes for this game, but unfortunately they let me down. This game is convoluted, and hard to navigate, it is literally pay-to-win, meaning that the only way you'll be able to advance farther in the game and feel like you are doing well, you need to pay for a chest. On top of that, the game and the company has scummy business practices, promising in game currency, but then not following through when you actually fulfill the agreed upon terms set. Screw this game, and screw the people that run it. If I could I'd give them 0/5 stars, and I will be recommending that no one should play this game.
Was fun at one time
by Hgsbhjhg on 2017/05/18 21:03
I joined this game pretty much when it first came out. It was so much fun and addicting. Now it's all about how much money you have. I just received an email from game of war to come back and receive 1 million free gold. Dam I wonder how much gold those high ballers have.
Ad Crazy App
by ericflys on 2017/05/18 19:08
Every time you log in, you get a pop up add and in game there are constant flashing adds on the screen. I'd pay to have them go away... and no way to succeed at this game unless you pay.

This game is a money pit. MZ puts out new updates every few days that cost hundreds of dollars to keep up with. Watch your bank account when you buy "discounted" packs; I caught them on more than one occasion charging me full price. When I challenged it with my bank, I found myself kicked off the App Store (App Store was disabled). I don't recommend this game and encourage you to drop the game from your library if you already play!
Spend your money elsewhere
by MrTahpHayt on 2017/05/17 15:10
Aha, look, It's that game with the Legend27 meme. Let's give it a shot... Oh. *Oh.* This is baaaaaaaaaaaad. As many people have pointed out, Game of War requires money to win. And unlike other games such as Clash of Clans, whose one star ratings are nothing more than salty children whose parents will not let them spend money on precious gems which merely help speed up gameplay, this is not hyperbole. YOU WILL NEED TO SPEND MONEY TO POSSIBLY STAND A CHANCE, LET ALONE WIN. Right from the start you can tell the developers are already massively money hungry. Upon startup you are brought to a map where roughly 50% of the screen is special offers, ads, and bonus deals. (I'm not exaggerating, look for yourself.) You are offered tons of great offers and deals for "reasonable" prices, which the game will constantly shove down your throat every 10 seconds. Oh sure, you don't *have* to buy them, but the game will not hesitate to constantly remind you about all the great bonuses and rewards you're missing out on. And then there's the gameplay. OH GOD, THE GAMEPLAY. First off, the wait times for research and building gets atrocious at later levels, but I'll elaborate more on that once I get into the meat of the whole "pay to win" thing. As I mentioned earlier the ui is a bloody cluttered mess and nowhere is it explained what button does what or where you can go to find a specific menu. You do not actually participate in defense or offense battles, as the annoying ads the game features would have you believe. Instead you sit around and wait, which in case you couldn't tell is something you do a lot in this game. All you do is sit on your a** waiting for something to happen, but alas, it never does. Before I get into my overall argument about how this game is a huge waste of your time and money, I'd like to get back to CoC, specifically the matchmaking system. In Clash, if you wanted to raid someone's village, the game would search through the playerbase and then pull up another player of a similar skill level for you. This is fair for the attacker in that it ensures that while they won't be raiding particularly easy villages, they won't be forced to raid a high-level player base they'd probably have no chance of beating, and it's fair to the defender in that it softens the blow if they get raided, and allows them a fair chance to fight back. And on top of that, the game also compensates for player resources, too. If you constantly search the playerbase till you find a village with very few defenses compared to your own, sure you can raid it for easy resources, but you will reap much fewer benefits and the opponent will lose much fewer trophies because they were at a distinct disadvantage. On the other hand, If you try your luck at a village with significantly stronger defenses than your own, you run a higher chance of losing, but if you do in fact succeed, your rewards will be greater. Why do I bring all this up? Because Game of War has none of it. Yes, you heard me right. If you're playing this game, you are constantly at risk of being raided by a player with a much higher skill level, meaning they can take you out with ease, while at the same time they recieve no repurcussions for doing so. They get all your resouces with no penalty. It's not like you can fight back, you're way to underleveled, and levelling up is nigh impossible due to being constantly raided. And the developers know this. Which is why they made the wait times for research and building unreasonably absurd. I'm talking thousands of hours for one upgrade. And of course you can be raided at any time, making any upgrade you started pointless. Sure, you can use speedups, but those require gold, which require money. Like I said, you will need to spend money to stand a fighting chance. Not an option, a neccesity. You will need to regularly devote your funds to this game, because the game is updating every other day, which not only makes any actual reviews not paid for by the developer dissapear, but also adds new stuff for you to spend your hard earned cash on, making the last new new new tier of vip you just purchased worthless. Fun! Tl:dr Game of War and its inbred child Mobile Strike are nothing more than apps meant for you to pay money to, disguised as games. Save your money. Don't touch this one eith a ten foot long pole. In fact, don't do that, not even a ten foot long pole would enjoy this garbage.
Way Too Expensive!!!
by Ldyoung0728 on 2017/05/17 15:07
Don't even start with this game - that is my recommendation! And if you are playing and spending, do yourself a favor and stop cold turkey like I did. It's hard to leave friends and alliances, but not putting anymore money into MZ's pocket is well worth it. Buy a car, go on a trip, spend time with family and not with this worthless game devised by a greedy company. This game costs BIG BUCKS if you want to compete. Just don't....

Veteran player here. This game has gone seriously downhill. Be prepared to shell out $300-1000 per month if you want to keep up and have fun with the updates. The thresholds for attack/defense/etc become obsolete every week and you're required to spend hundreds of dollars to keep playing.
Bad...just bad attempt to steal your money
by Buletz4brekfest on 2017/05/17 12:39
I have seen well over a dozen games exactly like this except the only way to actually get good is to spend your money on this useless money grab .... You can play for free at the beginning but later the game becomes bull. It's absolutely horrible, and as another person said, reminds me of illegal drug dealers. Would give 0 stars if I could
Too expensive
by mistress VI on 2017/05/17 12:28
Just don't do it. Don't download game. It's way too expensive to stay competitive in the game. Mz keeps dropping huge DAILY releases that cost at minimum $100 to get (rarely will it just be $100). If you can't afford that you will sit with a shield and click buttons all day. I've been playing 5 years now and every day they are losing 10-20 players I know because of this. Yeah I know 5 years and I am still playing. Why? Because I am one of the fools that invested huge money in the game to get screwed daily with another Mz release.
Pay A LOT for Little Play
by Purple II on 2017/05/17 12:17
This games constantly asks me for a review so here it is. This game is pay to play. You won't get anywhere if you don't pay at least something. I don't mean a little money. I mean A LOT. If you want to be a top player, you'll spend thousands. I'm not joking. A good Xbox or PlayStation game brand new costs around $60 or $120 if you purchase the entire DLC pack. This game...$100 will barely get you anywhere 😂😂 It was fun at first, but all of these $99 packs that get released almost daily ruins the fun. I don't have a few grand every few months to throw away on a mobile game. Otherwise, it's great. MZ really screwed the pooch when it comes to how much this game costs. Bye MZ. It was fun for a few months.
All about money
by Shodorowski on 2017/05/17 10:15
Only way to win is to buy. They change things so often that no one can keep up. Every day something new you need but can only procure by purchase.

by Nate the pimp on 2017/05/17 06:23
Have been playing this game for a year and finally quit when for the third time a peace shield failed WELL before time was up. I set an external timer the last time so I'm sure. Had a little over 22 hours left. Also, this is the greediest game I've ever played. The in game purchases are NECESSARY to achieve any level of play. The farming you do is of NO consequence. Oh, and I was at level 30, the highest you can go, currently. I hope these programmers lose everything they have and end up on the u employment line. Pathetic! Avoid this game like the plague if you've got any sense at all.
Game should be shutdown by the Govt
by Todsrile12 on 2017/05/17 04:08
Seriously...this game completely targets unwitting people to spend thousands of dollars with nothing to show for it. This game is worse than gambling and It is unhealthy for the player. This is exactly the type of game that will cause the government to enact some safety boundaries.
Money Pit
by bassman61 on 2017/05/17 03:43
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.
Expensive
by Harwood95 on 2017/05/17 01:40
This developer is responsive but unwilling to correct purchase errors, which are way too easy to make. I didn't even know I had made a purchase of $100! They were completely unwilling or unable to work with me. Luckily Apple was completely helpful and refunded the charge. Thank you Apple! I'm deleting this account and App!
Terrible
by arbles on 2017/05/17 01:18
They release new items way too fast and it costs $100 to keep up with everything per week. Just a big scam.

False advertising
by Savage:(((((($)()-)4!:94!;! on 2017/05/16 22:32
The game was "entertaining" but way to expensive. The reason I purchased the game is because like most of us we played the mini games expecting for the game to be something like this. This is false advertising because I watched many advertisement and the game was very different. The game should either be taken down or fix its advertising!!

Not worth the $$$
by Sstormwatch on 2017/05/16 18:39
It was the game in the ad I enjoyed playing, and this is not that game. This game is ok, for using up time setting up your little city-state. But it is clearly designed for heavy purchasing of all sorts of things, and for combatting your neighbors once you've spent time and lots of money equipping your hero/city-state. Like the other reviewers said, expect to spend a lot of money, hundreds of $$$, if not lots more, to play among the big league. I got to level 22 with only paying $5 for their first pack, and was in a large busy guild that helped, but I could not actually unshield long enough to get anywhere, or claim much of anything, before a bigger fish took the prize. And then after you slog through lvl 21 to advance, and max out a hero at L60 (unless you pay to unlock higher levels), the whole time frame of how long it takes to build your city exploded into 15000 days and longer, all to force you to spend real money for speed ups to advance. It really is a money maker for them, and you will get little in return, since you are in constant need of more speed ups. Not worth it.
Gone to crap
by MZtheGreedy on 2017/05/16 18:30
Ever since mz started rolling out this money grabbing updates they have broken the game, getting rid of traps and essentially everyone now has to shield
Very Sad
by Jessa31188 on 2017/05/16 18:22
Use to be such a great game, costly but fun nonetheless. Over the last 6 months, MZ has gone off the deep end. Little by little increasing the rate of new releases until it hit 7 releases in 5 days about 2 weeks ago. Dedicated players are dropping left and right unless you are one of the GOW "celebrities" your opinion and feedback means nothing to MZ. They do not care about their customer base. They do not care that the game is so full of glitches that it makes it almost impossible to play at times. Their greed is becoming the downfall of what use to be an amazing game. What's heartbreaking is the fact that so many people have played together for so long, creating solid friendships, and they are all forced to quit because MZ releases faster than people can keep up. They are burning people out. Hopefully they open their eyes and pull their heads out of their asses to see the long term potential the game has.

I've been playing this game for 3 1/2 years. It use to be great till Mz got greedy and made it so even people spending on their app can't even keep up anymore.
Was fun once upon a time...
by Yolo_75 on 2017/05/16 17:53
Game was GREAT when it first came out. Used to have a blast playing it. Now it's become to expensive to be competitive. I refuse to pay hundreds of real dollars to buy fake gold. Only reason I still open the app is to clear the notifications.
Way to expensive
by KB239 on 2017/05/16 17:38
MZ has killed the game to a point where I'm no long interest in the game. To many updates and to much$$$$. With the money I have spent on this game, I could've paid off my home. I'm done, R.I.P Game of War!
Exprensive " Free Game "
by Ccmoya on 2017/05/16 16:57
The game was Fun up until MZ started getting greedy adding new research and Gear where you can only get through Packs with a 40 Mill income and still they continue releasing new stuff as for the packs they will not help you complete anything you have to purchase various packs to complete a research tree and the consumption of rss to have enough troops is outrageous and if you dont pay attention all that money gets lost if you get hit and are not on hundreds of dollars down the drain in order to stay on track with game Dont let the FREE logo catch you the only thing free is the download after that be ready to spend hundreds !!!!

Too many notifications!!
by Superapp rater on 2017/05/16 14:20
The game itself is alright, but it takes forever to upgrade to higher levels. It will also send you a ton of notifications during the day that may run down your battery and are just flat out ANNOYING. But if you turn off the notifications, you miss that someone attacked your city and took everything you have... It definitely needs to cut down on the notifications

If you don't plan on spending hundreds of dollars on a monthly basis just to keep up with updates in this game, then don't waste your time. You'll need to take out a loan just to keep up with this game. Not worth it.

GOW FOR LIFE !!!!!
by dwells829 on 2015/10/13 04:33
The thing that needs to be made aware about GOW, is the separation of two different categories here giving reviews. The ones who don't want to spend a dime or very little (farmvillers) and the ones that will sell there house and kid for packs.... Two completely different worlds of game play. For the farmvillers it isn't a fun game. All it takes is one slip of your shield to drop and all your months of hard farmvilling is toast, zeroed... Before you even know what happened. Most farmvillers last a few months tops before they are cursing the game and give up. The other side to this game is where the actual game play happens. .."The spenders" they have all the fun, joining rally's and conquering wonders, once your big enough to enter the forest and join rally's your having a blast with this game, with new packs now you can get t4 troops with a few $100 packs.... Pretty cheap fun, considering it takes about $8k to max research. And that's a whole world of its own game play also.. Battling at the Super wonder with Stay 😍😍... Every power level is like buying a ps4 game with all the new things you are able to do. Don't listen to the Farmvillers bash on GOW when they have never actually played GOW. It truly is a masterpiece and so much more than just a phone app... It will consume you and your new family will be your alliance and your kingdom members... Nothing else matters ☺️.... Except your job to keep buying packs 😂
Good game
by Gsrev on 2014/01/26 04:55
A lot of grinding in this game. The game is fun but as you level up higher, each buildings takes longer to upgrade. You will go from 5 mn wait time to hours and finally days. Let's not mention you risked getting attacked by other players making you restart all over again. The best choice is to join an alliance, and ask them to help you upgrade. Alliance also offer protection since higher ranked alliance won't get attacked often. Sometimes other alliances will join forces to control a section of the kingdom which is pretty huge. The game is very detailed and there's a lot of politics in the game. People take it a bit too seriously. I gave it 4 star on how detailed and addictive it is. It could've been 5 stars if weren't for the fact that you got to pay money in order to be at the top. Nothing would be wrong but everything is expensive in this game. $100 for a couple of in-game gold? Not really worth it if you ask me. No wonder people take this game seriously after investing so much it only makes sense. On the plus side if you join an alliance with a leader that do spend money, you get extra gifts that you wouldn't have had you been a regular player. In conclusion joining an alliance is a must and actually make the game much more fun. The way people interact in the game really make the game for me. It's worth a download and you spend a lot of time in it. Very good and detailed game
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fun at first, then pointless
by LV1220 on 2013/08/03 05:18
Like everyone else, I thought this game was incredible when it was released. More strategic than Clash of Clans and more detailed. The build rate and upgrades were exciting and I couldn't put down my phone for two days. Then, like every game of this type, it slowed down once I became too high-leveled. Worse though is that the rest of the game doesn't provide enough motivation to deal with the slow pace. Here's a secret: You will NOT become the top player unless you drop some serious real money. Even worse, you will get consistently steam-rolled by stronger players and alliances that were beta-testers and have 20 days of playing behind them. Also frustrating to some is that there aren't any serious consequences to being defeated. Your city and buildings cannot be destroyed. All that happens is you lose your supply of resources, whatever city defenses you have, troops, and maybe your hero. The only real consequence is that it takes a while to restock all your supplies and rebuild your army. Then it's back to Groundhog Day. If you want a social experience, then this game will still satisfy. The Alliance structure encourages people to work together. For strategy game enthusiasts though, it's too simplistic. The game doesn't really seem to go anywhere or accomplish anything more than being a game-oriented chat room. Some may still find it fun months from now, but after over a week of playing, I'm too bored to continue.
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!!!
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
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!
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.
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.
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
Horribly one sided game
by Momo2203467 on 2014/12/30 13:09
This is the first review I've ever written on any game period. I would like to start off by saying this game is addicting. It has fun mechanics that would make for some awesome gameplay. To say it's one sided is completely an understatement. I played this game for months about a year ago. Took a long time to progress to SH 17 with just a little money spending. Even back then there were big spenders who took the fun out of the game. Having the capability of a single player being able to wipe out an entire alliance of SH 15 and up is utterly ridiculous. Higher level players in larger alliances farm the smaller ones constantly. There is no room to grow unless you hide and buy peace shield after peace shield. I quit almost a year ago because of alliances just farming all the lower players constantly. Decided to give it another run a day ago. BIG MISTAKE. I activated my old level 17 SH account and used all speed boosts to get my researching up and heal all my troops back. It literally took 1 day for a max level player with 3 billion power to teleport in and farm the entire alliance I joined. No resources, no troops, no traps, and a hero in yet another prison. Don't waste your time with this game unless you're willing to spend ALOT of money to be competitive. The developers know the big spenders will keep spending and have tailored the game to keep them around instead of making any progress toward bringing in new players and keeping them.
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.
My experience
by Ebonywarriorcats on 2014/02/23 00:12
I've been playing this game for over 100 days. At first I loved the game I made it all the way to lvl 15 with the lvl cap being 21. But then I started experiencing harassment from other players users with superiority complexes that think its funny to pick on people and abuse the game, they mailed me constantly, probably at least 20 members of one group, most of it was just random BS but some of it was personal and hurtful, this has gone on for days I can't chat in kingdom chat I get told to just go play something else if I don't like it, when I log in to play my mail box is going off constantly I changed my player name but they figured out who I was and continue to bomb my mail box my whole game experience has been so tarnished I don't think I even want to play anymore and certainly will not recommend any one I know subject themselves to such relentless bulling. Also when ever I have written in to support it takes weeks for them to respond and nothing ever gets done about any of it I usually get a generic response that doesn't resolve anything at al, no compensation, no real info that's useful and no penalty to the "problem" users that abuse the game. And this also applies to glitch issues nothing has ever been done, I get " sorry for the inconvenience we will look into it" or " you have to collect the Athena's gift before it expires" when the issue was that the thing never appeared until after it was expired. :( not impressed at all
False advertising and a terrible game.
by Carsegna on 2014/10/29 03:51
Alright so I saw this games ad for awhile now and finally decided to se its worth. All I can say Is that I was disappointed by everything. First off, the advertising for this game was completely misleading. What they use for the previews aren't even in the game. It's simply to make it look better. Second, the actual quality of the game can compare to that of something that would run on one of the old original iOS devices. I'm talking original iPod graphics and engine. I will admit that it kinda looked interesting at first. However once you get farther into the game. It is extremely boring and would more closely represent a social network for ten year old boys than an actual iOS game, Even for a free game. But what really put the nail in the coffin for me personally was the fact that when you go to attack another player, its more of if you have more numbers than the opposing player than actual strategy. When they were marketing this game they promised strategy. Which there is a significant lack of in this game. It doesn't mater where you place your structures because if the attacking player has more numbers it is considered an automatic win. If you coming from games like clash you'll also be disappointed to hear that their is no troop placement or command. Just numbers. So in my honest opinion this is disgrace to your purchases tab. I hope you'll take my advice and find some other mobile game to play.
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!!
Worst customer service..huge scam
by Horrible scam on 2014/08/24 03:47
I have 2 t4 accts in this game which cost thousands of dollars to build. 4 days ago I received a message stating "server under maintenance. Please try again after a while". Since this game always has server issues I figured it would be fixed within the hour. I still do not have access to my acct and it has been attacked and I've lost everything. I've mailed MZ at least 100 times asking them to fix the issue , tried everything they have asked me to do and obviously it's an issue on their side. When I asked them to shield my account so I wouldn't lose everything they ignored me then that night it was hit. My last message I received from them 2 days ago said that they would be forwarding my issue to the developers to fix the issue. I can not get anyone from mz to reply to me or give me even an update on the issue. I would advise everyone to not spend any more money in this game because this could happen to anyone. you will lose everything and Mz will not do anything to help you, they don't even have the decency to respond to you. they will do anything to get your money but will not do anything to help you when they screw up. I'm still waiting for my reply of what they plan on doing to go forward in reimbursing me but sadly I hVe a strong feeling I will not be getting any kind of reply from them. Do not play the game do not spend your money. It's the worst kind of scam.
Ridiculous
by Annabear_ on 2015/07/07 05:02
First off I like this game. I really do it's neat and well organize with certain things. However, the developers have develop a game that they could feed off from people's wallet. The packs that they provide not only cost good amount of money, but every time you purchase, it doubles up the price until you hit a hundred. Yeah they design this pretty well so they could make money. I understand business is all about money, but this is ridiculous. Not only that, the options in the game with building, researching or training, especially digging takes 100 days until you complete it. Wow. I have contacted MZ and they have said it is on how player plays the game. Now tell me this, the only way a player will be able to speed up in those areas will be to spend more cash from their pocket. This is a game for your customers to enjoy. But the only customers you guys will have later on are those who are willing to spend thousands of dollars in this game. You will loose customers if this continue. Everything about this game cost money no matter how much you guys explain this to anyone. It's design well. The developers sure are smart and greedy. But that's just my personal opinion. So anyone who is not planning to spend thousands and hundreds or dollars don't even bother. Cause those who have will just annihilate you with their great power!!!
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.
Waste of time
by Slivermonger on 2014/09/16 22:56
This game is engineered to make you pay thousands to compete. Waste of time and the developers always force 100 dollar packages on you upon login. Developers are too greedy. However, since some spendthrifts threw 10s of thousands of dollars to build up their city, they figured intelligence in the world population is declining. This game was created for profit vs user entertainment so should not be around much longer due to declining user interest. Ppl still join only to realize there is no point. Clash of clans is as fun and way cheaper and you don't NEED to buy where this game you will go nowhere unless you clear your bank account. This game is nowhere near free. Game was created to milk as much money as possible. Even with all of the money they made being a top grosser b4, game still has glitches. 9 months of daily log ins and 75 dollars later, I am still one of the weakest cities. Smh. It gets boring the stronger you get cause you either have to wait 30+ days for research or pay. Game has a serious imbalance favoring rich people or people with stolen credit cards cause too expensive. And times where I sent feedback, sometimes not positive, all of a sudden my prizes decline. Not sure if that is a coincidence. Do not play for fun either because the game is ran by the strongest person per kingdom. This game is not really about strategy. It's about size
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.
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.
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.
This game is broken
by HavocK62 on 2015/02/25 16:27
The developer is aware and has ignored several game breaking mechanics, most recently and egregiously the embassy cheat which completely takes any fair play and competitive aspect away from the games "kingdom vs kingdom" kill events and tourneys. This game is not worth downloading at this time. Shame after playing for almost 2 years it has come to this point. Greed over quality by the developers. The T1 traps have made events boring and tedious. Embassy cheat in kill events is by far the most outlandish thing I have ever encountered in a game. Kill events state "Kill one outlander t3 troop - 40 points, kill one outlander t4 troop - 100 points." No where in this does it state "Kill your own t4 troop - 100 points." However, that's all some of these kingdoms are doing to win in kingdom vs kingdom kill events. Many kingdoms have cut off spending due to this and the lack of action by MachineZone. We have submitted many helpspot tickets and they simply just give us an automated reply, the best one was "This is part of military strategy, you should unite with your alliance members and think of ways to overcome this strategy!" Absurd, you would think they would want to fix a cheat to at least provide a level of fairness to the players. Until they fix this embassy cheat, many players will not spend another dime and will not participate in any events at all including myself, my alliance, and my kingdom.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There's a lot of commercials
by Windyboy413 on 2015/03/06 04:29
When I try to play my game peacefully the commercial of this game keeps on popping out of no where!! I just want to destroy this game because it's commercials!! Can the people who made the game please stop with the commercials I think everybody is tried of it too. I just want to report this game if anyone else is tried of the commercials please write #triedofcommercial for the title of the review. Please take off the commercials the more there are commercials the more people get tried of it and stop playing are will never start playing this game. I just downloaded this game for this report that's how mad I am. If you stop with a lot of commercials I think you can have more people playing because you can a have some commercials but not on all the game like really people. I'm just trying to say just get rid of all the commercials and put them on some games not all games the commercials are even on kids game and the lady in the commercial is showing some of her breast like really. Your going to make a child horrified!!! if I see a lot of commercials I will report you a million times please stop!! I bet when you stop you will get even more people and I would even start playing too!! PLEASE STOP! That all and thank you for reading. I'm giving a 1 star sorry I could give a 5 star in the future maybe if you stop with the commercials. That's all
An ILAnd of stupidity in a sea of greed.
by Amused time killers on 2014/08/16 08:44
I have been playing since last November when it WAS a really cool strategy and fighting game. Sure the guys willing to pay real money got built up a little faster but with patience and a good alliance you could do well. Now they make so many POINTLESS events that don't do anything but make the developer money. Organized good alliances cannot win gold anymore or win a tiny amount so that if you want to grow you almost HAVE to purchase with real money. Simple war game with kill events each weekend has morphed into who can build the most troops wearing the color green on a Tuesday if the month has an even number of days. (Sure a slight embellishment for effect, but not far from the truth). Events are poorly thought out. Game has added so many superfluous features that it takes forever to load and finally when you play it is many times slow and glitchy. Original game was a simple fast corvette. fun to play, quick and easy to maneuver. Now it's a Rube Goldberg invention taking 150 moving parts to make your morning toast. Please save yourself the time and aggravation of playing this game and don't download unless you have about 3,000 dollars to waste just to play a game that has become lame even if you have a good city to fight with. Everything they have done to "enhance" the game is only ways to enhance the size of their bank account.
Nothing nice to say so say nothing at all :)
by Addicted gameaholic on 2014/09/27 19:28
I've always been told if you can't say nothing nice say nothing at all, however this time I'm going to back up the nothing nice and explain why. About a week ago I was logging in to an account and kept getting "password can't be empty" error so I asked three other ppl to log in to the account and they got the same error. When I mailed mz the response was that it was the Internet connection. Ironically all 4 ppl that tried in 3 different countries were having internet connection issues at the exact same time. I let this go knowing machine zones lack of decency to make it right. The account was zeroed and hero executed. Then on Thursday 9/25 I wasn't able to get into my own account from around 8pm-2am due to an "emergency maintenance" that machine zone claimed a server blew. Imagine my surprise when I was able to log in again that not only had my city been hit at 9:30, when no one was supposedly on but that my hero is captured waiting to be executed, troops are now dead/hospitalized and what is machine zone doing about it? I would love to tell you but they haven't responded to my mails and probably won't. I haven't spent enough to pay their mortgage but I have paid my them enough to keep up their internet so they can respond but I can't afford the buy them the decency to do so. Hope this helps with your decision of the game. Not recommended, xAngelEyesx
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!!!
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!!
Used to be good
by Zachhh77 on 2014/12/27 21:43
I have been playing this game almost since the beginning. It started out great plenty of wars and while spenders have an advantage they could be beat with superior game play. Now spenders hit 3 billion power in two weeks when people who played for a year had not even hit a billion. It is impossible to compete with the spenders as MZ continues to create more and more advantages for them. There are almost know wars now as competitions have become based on research and troop growth. No surprise who wins that. When the one kill event a month happens the spenders are so far ahead that you can't compete at all. While I have spent some on the game it has become outrageous at what they want people to spend. As far as starting new. If you don't spend don't spend don't bother. You will have people on a new world at a1/2 a billion to a billion power inside of two weeks. This basically eliminates any real gameplay and strategy regarding in world battles as you simply can't compete. Used to be a great game. While I am at almost a billion power myself it took a year and a lot of strategy and learning game mechanics. Now it takes a push of a button and $100. New players stand no chance and most will quit inside of two weeks. There are now researches that over 1000 days to complete. The researches give huge advantages. So if you don't spend find a different game.
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.
Disappointed
by ⛄️⛄️--😠😠😠 on 2014/08/29 10:14
That day MZ was working on their maintenance I had a problem before they started. I've been playing this game for over a year and I've never had an issue with notifications. I have notifications turned on, on the game as well as on my phone and throughout that whole time I never got a single notification that my peace shield was going to expire soon or that I was getting attacked, as well as other notifications from the game. I emailed MZ and notified them of what was going on. MZ emailed me back telling me that maybe I wasn't paying attention, or that it was a connection issue on my side, or that my notifications on the game wasn't on. First of all my significant other plays this game as well, we're in the same alliance and they were receiving notifications from the game. I got hit 22 times and I didn't get a single notification. As soon as they were done with their maintenance I started getting notifications once again, but it was too late. I lost troops, walls, hero, and rss. So far MZ hasn't replied back to me to see if they're going to reimburse me, when obviously it was a mistake on their side. By reading some of the reviews on here I doubt they will reimburse me. Therefore I don't recommend this game just for the simple fact that MZ is bad at reimbursing people as well as they seem to blame the player when the game is messing up on their side.
Buy to play
by That one guy that plays games on 2015/05/01 00:55
Game of War is a pretty addicting game. When I started, my kingdom was 0 days old. Now it is almost 5 months old and I'm still playing. There are awesome and funny people in this game and fighting with your alliance and friends is awesome. However, for you to advance in this game and actually become powerful, you need to either spend loads of money on packs or get in an alliance that spends a lot and you just get the gifts. Theses alliances will not accept small people like me and most of the GOW players since they are made up of spenders. If you do not shield or become powerful, you will constantly be farmed and attacked. You won't be able to have a lot of fun since you will only be able to attack small people and most of the time, they call in their 1 billion power friend who will zero you easily. All these reviews that are saying "Best Game Ever!" Or "Love It!" were made by people in MZ or who were paid by them. This game is fun if you do become powerful but if you don't, you'll just become a farm and one day you'll just quit. I had befriended many people in GOW and about 90% of them have quit. The other 10% are spenders who protect me and help me out. Get this game if you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars. Maybe one day I'll become powerful even though I've only spent $10 :)
Time and money pit
by Sik Rik on 2015/06/10 12:44
Very unbalanced game where the beginner players are at the mercy of players of any level. If you do not have money or ridiculous amounts of time to spend then don't bother playing this game. To become even remotely powerful in this game you must invest months of time and or hundreds of dollars. Research at the mid to upper end of game takes months if not years to complete. Therefore you must spend money to buy speedups to get anything done. Also there is so much you must upgrade that even if you do spend money on upgrade packs you barely scratch the surface of the amount of research necessary to get anything anywhere in this game. At first packs cost anywhere from $5 to $20 dollars which isn't bad. But after 3 or so purchases at any of those prices only $100 packs are available for you to purchase. Even after contacting the support department about this issue you are told it's the sales department that handles that. Basically just giving you the run around blame game. This game revolves around money plain and simple. If you are not willing to spend hundreds of not thousands and countless hours of your time hoping and praying you don't get attacked and lose what can cost you months to build from a single attack from a player then don't bother. Plenty of better games to have fun without breaking the bank or taking up your time.
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.
Excellent! But..
by Jakealake44 on 2014/12/26 17:25
This game is the most addictive and fun game I have ever played in my life... But you have to spend money for it to be fun. I have been playing the game for 32 days and have spent $130 and I am SH 15 and have all tier 3 troops. I am smart with my gold and mainly only use it to upgrade my prison, altar, etc. with the help if the people in my alliance. This game is not like Clash of Clans and you will stay loyal to your alliance because they seem like family to you. Also, in the kingdoms everyone knows each other and there are the people that are rivals and allies. I like this game because you can actually join up with your allies to create a massive hive and protect each other from rival alliances. It is not like Clash of Clans because you actually have a location (coordinates) to where you are and you can change that. But the down side to that is people can find you who have spent more money than you and burn you, but you can change your name, empire name, profile image and more and teleport away from their to escape enemies. Remember though, you need to spend money for this game to be fun and addicting!
BE AWARE Lost Potential
by iXi CoMp iXi on 2015/08/07 00:58
The game was designed great at first. There are still a few things to point out in which I personally didn't like about the game. Machine Zone has a horrible customer service dept. they don't respond when you tell them about technical difficulties with their software. During kill events lots of defense players get rallied and try to put a shield up but it says you have an active March out so you can't, nor can you teleport away. They tell you to restart the game and that if that doesn't solve it then it must just be the lag from your bad connections. They blame our connection for their incapable game server that they use to make hundreds of thousands of dollars.. With all that money couldn't they come out with something a little more dependable? After all, it's WE the consumers who provide you a cash flow profit. Mz doesn't care about the game nor do they care about the players in it. They only care for money. They know how to make a good game, the money, thousands of fans, yet can they invest into something? That's where dedication is needed so I'd go with NO! 😂😂 that's all.. Just thought I'd give a report since their stupid pop up was so eager to find out what I think of this game. 😘☝🏻️👆🏻👌🏻
The "Red Ferrari" of mmo games...lol
by This game "RULES" on 2014/12/09 03:18
Don't waste your time or money on this junk. The dynamics of the game are not set up for any new players to ever win. Unless you get into a new kingdom and have vast amounts of money to spend on fake power, it's really not worth your time. If you get into the Zeno kingdom, quit immediately. The idiots that "rule" the wonder (lol), have no clue. The wonder is on "rotation" by the 5 largest alliances. SMALL minds & even SMALLER appendages, make for a COMPLETE waste of time; which to me is more valuable than any fake power or gold. Lol The larger groups only feed on the smaller ones, so there's no opportunity to grow or ever win. The amount of time these people put into this junk, is beyond my realm of understanding. They play for hours daily, have voice chat set up to keep in constant "control", and there are no limits to the stupidity they won't pull. People are starving in the world & these morons are spending real money on fake food? Get real geniuses! MZ is a joke too. Got a problem? Write to the pope. You'd be more apt to get a response. Customer service is horrible, as it's the same old run around. Spend money on it, then they clam up. No one ever really replies, they just send messages saying they've forwarded it to the proper department..? Well guess what? I'm reporting MZ to the Better Buisness Bureau, for fraud. Seriously...DON'T BOTHER!
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
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.
Addicted
by Beau & Jay on 2014/07/17 18:06
I have been playing for about 7 or 8 months now. I just happened to be browsing the App Store for a game that was more inter-active and stumbled on Game of War. Wow!!! I was playing some of the other games I had down loaded and not check this one out yet. When I finally got around to checking out GoW that was it. I deleted most of the other games and started on my quest to conquer the world. I'm still new if you ask me but I finally got accepted into a great alliance and I'm growing. My alliance members are from all over the world and great people to be aligned with both men and women, young and old. I don't know them all yet but the ones that I do are just good people and making friends with them has been great. If you are looking for a game to play and grow and meet new friends this is it. I probably play about 12 hours a day. Addicted is an understatement. You play as much or as little as you want. Give it a try we may become alliance members or even friends. It is a blast. Go ahead, down load it we are all waiting for you. Millions are playing. Why not you? I hope to see you soon.
Worlds Most Corrupted Game of War
by Xzey the vinylknight on 2015/08/29 21:50
I've been playing this game for very very long time. At first this was the most fun game because of so many task to do. It is mostly time consuming, I met tons of friends along the way. I wanted to approve this game a 5 star, but there were severe red flags to me and you should hear this. Tier 4 units is usually the maximum you can get to be the most powerful attacker. Problem is in order to get that, you need to max out all your buildings to 21 and three remaining buildings require "loads of money". Yes, if you want tier 4, you are force to pocket money out over ridiculous requirement. This also brings the sale bundle that cost $100. The bundle is insane ridiculous that a rich person would likely to buy it. Time goes on, another special $100 would have more bundle than before, making you waste your money previously. Chaining to this cause, this also bring insanely overpowered castle. You will likely to see Castle with over more than just a billion power. Best part of all? Kingdom event. You will likely to have enemies from another kingdom who will mostly teleport close to you and attack you without giving a chance to act, causing you to lose your hero capture and be executed by the time the enemy kingdom teleports away with your hero. This game has become the most unfair and money grabbing I have ever met.
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...

Used to be fun playing
by Chris Nilson69 on 2017/05/22 09:29
Used to be fun playing but not now! It's ridiculous now MZ puts out new stuff every day and you have to spend 100 to 500 bucks just to keep up which is total bs. And if you don't spend money on the game you will never catch up at all! Waste of time playing this game! Played this game for 3 years now and when I first started playing it was so much fun playing but now it's completely worthless and way to many glitches and the lag is horrible. Don't waste your time playing this
It's an amazing game but...
by kittiee on 2017/05/22 04:24
I loved playing it and played it for a whole year. Played every waking moment and it took over my life but I had no qualms with it because I simply loved the game. There are a few problems with it though as many others have written.... 1. you simply cannot keep up without either spending every waking moment playing (i used to wake up in the middle of the night to play casino to make extra money or buffs) or spend thousands of dollars which my guild members did on person spend 10k a month. 2. before all the updates fighting was impossible unless you had the latest and greatest iphone/ipad so that you make sure you don't lag otherwise you'll die instantly and then it takes you months again to catch up. 3. i wish it was an easy game to play, and pick up without having to shield all day long and worry that you'll be hit and scavenged for food. 4. i loved the game just wished it was more stupid proof and made so that we all can play it more casually. it's definitely a great game nonetheless.
Trash

The ads
by Wewweddfhfghnhkkngdxvdgs on 2017/05/22 02:26
We're so annoying that I just downloaded the game just to stop seeing the ad it sucked
Expensive
by wrj57 on 2017/05/22 02:12
Stay away from this game. It was a good game once but has now just turned into a money grab. What you do this week is outdated 3-4 days later and the only way to stay competitive is to spend money on their $99.00 packs. It's a never ending money grab, with poor customer service.
Decent
by XXX Snipez XXX on 2017/05/22 00:05
Overleveled people storm your base and It takes away all the fun but it is still good
To expensive
by vrshroomy on 2017/05/21 23:00
It may be free to download but to really be competitive you have to spend thousands of dollars at the game. To get to my next VIP level I would have to spend over $3400.
Frustrated
by jillamb on 2017/05/21 22:41
I have played over 2 1/2 years. It is getting to the point where packs are high (can't get far in game without them), they release new things to close together. You can't get used to something before they release something else.
Expensive Game
by Moemab on 2017/05/21 22:40
Dear reviewers, I have been playing this game for four years now and have made a tremendous amount of friends. With that said I cannot cannot afford to play this game. It is beyond ridiculous players having not only to shell out thousands of dollars but to shell out twenty dollars just to stay ahead of the curve. If we aren't constantly being forced to put money into a war game we are bombarded with lags, freezes or just being booted from the game all together. If it weren't for the simple reason that I made friends I wouldn't have stayed to play this game. I would have just wasted my time with the Kardashian game. It's beyond frustrating that I would rather spend my time on a a social app like FB to stay connected to people I have met thru your app. I will not ever waste my time or money on a pointless game or Machine Zone until these issues are handled directly and promptly. I don't need another generic MZ automated reply back I need and want to play a game that was once so enjoyable.
Great game

Deep Black Hole
by Kick-AssLV on 2017/05/21 18:38
I've been playing for over a year. Throwing money into it getting to the top - just to start all over again when new items/levels/gears/etc come along. Okay, that's the game. But, recently (since Christmas 2016), their rollout of new stuff has been in high gear. Every week there are new cores, new gear, new VIP, etc. There are the spenders who can afford $500-$1000 a week to be the 1st in their kingdom to have it all and burn everything in sight. Send you back to the Stone Age, so you have to spend hundreds of dollars to rebuild. A majority of us just want to have fun. Play with strategy. Form strong alliances. Off my soapbox. Get it if you want. Just be sure it is worth a mortgage payment/car payment and your utilities to keep up.
Ads are everywhere!
by Joe. Dude on 2017/05/21 17:39
I've been seeing ads for this everywhere, for years. A year ago, I downloaded it to see if it was actually as cool as it insinuated, but it turns out it wasn't it was nothing like the ads, and it was a complete money grabber. After I deleted it, ads continued showing up until this day. (And they will continue showing up until this stupid company goes bankrupt.)
Was a great game, no longer
by Bikerronl on 2017/05/21 17:06
I've been playing a long time, but I would not start new now. Way too expensive, no MZ support, the game shuts down by itself at the worst times, changes too fast, no consistency. It almost feels like MZ is trying to drive players away in order to shut it down.
Ridiculous
by SkylarMaR78 on 2017/05/21 16:51
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 maybe against your best interest to play. I have joined the GoW union effort to put a 30 day shield on and stop buying until MZ improves the game and makes it playable again.
Fun but costly
by Warrior N on 2017/05/21 15:37
It is an amazing game but have to spend a lot of money to keep up with your alliance and be alright at the game
Not as fun anymore
by AAllen71 on 2017/05/21 15:08
Need to slow down the updates and let the game flow come back. Invest some of that money we players spend to fix the glitches and improve the servers.
They don't tell you that can load packs
by We will see 84 on 2017/05/21 14:36
Just find a pack loader Mz doesn't care if you use a pack loader as long as they are getting paid smh spent so much and wondering why I could keep up with the rest of the kingdom I buy a 100 pack and they get them for 70-75 dollars a pack
Don't start playing - Not Free
by Training Wheels on 2017/05/21 09:59
The account you spend thousands of dollars monthly to create will never really be yours. Please read all the terms of play before you even start. Worst investment ever.
Better than Pokémon Go

OH WOW GEEZ AWFUL!
by job1866 on 2017/05/21 04:20
Wow! If they had made this into that mini game we all get stuck playing but now really enjoy we would've had a great game! Hell I would've paid a buck or two and It probably would've been one of the few games if not the only game I would've never gotten rid of, Would've should've, could've, didn't!!! This is not that. This is awful. Can anyone fathom that people would pay this kind of money, I mean real cash, the kind you hold in your real hand, thats green and is part cloth, with that special ink, all dirty etc, that you use to buy real food in the real world, to feed you rreal family with, to pay your rent for the real world apt you live in. Ya see where Im going with this? Yeah, find another game. I don't care if 50 zillion people downloaded it, that dont mean you should. Think for yourself, be a leader, not a follower. Hell I even did, for all of 90 seconds........GONE! So in parting, this game is Not fun, nor is long term freebasing. Just dont bother!
Warning!

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 maybe against your best interest to play. I have joined the GoW union effort to put a 30 day shield on and stop buying until MZ improves the game and makes it playable again.

You cannot play this game without spending money. If you don't spend money then you won't stand a chance. I made a mistake thinking if I spend around 25$ i would probably be able to hold my own but not even close. There's features in this game that you HAVE to purchase you can't unlock by playing. Regret everything and getting my refund on my money in a couple days. It's a fun game but it's literally a pay-to-win game.

Glitchy & expensive game with horrible customer support
by Xs104 on 2017/05/20 03:36
Adding to what was posted by many others: It would be a great game if it wasn't for MZ's crappy programming and horrible or non existent customer support. They made the game so complex that it will not run stable no matter what device or what internet connection you have. Getting kicked from game every 5 min is standard. And yet mz insists on replying to any complaints that all you have to do is reboot and the issue will be fixed. It's not. 100 people from 8 different countries, 4 continents and 15 different carriers have the same issue at the same time and Mz still insists the problem is with my device, not their servers. Don't waste your money on this

MZ paralyzed with stupidity
by RonnieG1120 on 2017/05/20 00:12
As people are reading, MZ has destroyed the games with their many off setting releases, beyond belief RSS requirements for research/training and rally leads. Each release costs 1200 to 3500 dollars per release, and they do this a minimum of 6 times a month now. This game is not fun, unless you spend 50,000 dollars upto a 100,000 dollars. Even then there is no strategy. The highest paying player wins. Even then, not always.....with the server glitches, a 5 dollar player with no hero can defeat a 100,000 dollar player in full gear and max march with full maxed research and the best gems. Pathetic is MZ. If you have now played, don't. This game has gone under and it will shut down soon. They are simply making as much as they can before the inevitable happens and they are forced to shut down. My game name is Puma out of Kingdom 856. I am one of the addictive personally disorders and i spent 87 thousand dollars on this game. And yet, i walked away because i lost too much being a rally leader. It is up to us to not feed the pig. MZ will not quit until we quit. Leave this game alone.

Mz too greedy ?
by HOLY DOMO on 2017/05/19 22:25
Every 2 weeks has a new expensive upgrade. You have to spend hundreds in order to be competitive in this game every 2 weeks. I think it's wrong to put out new upgrades before players have a chance to get the last upgrade done. Now the big spenders are able to smash everything even the best traps in the game. SLOW DOWN MZ. You're losing a lot of players that would have been ok the spend smaller amounts and still maintain competitiveness.

by JimijeffGOW on 2017/05/19 19:09
If you want to play and not be a zeroed account immediately plan on spending and continuing to spend until you are sick of it. The rate of releases are insane. It used to be a fun game and still can be if you want to drop hundreds of dollars a month on it. In my opinion save your money and time and do something with friends and family. The only truly good part of the game anymore is the friends you can make while cursing at MZ. It's laggy and flakey as hell and it will always be blamed on your device and or network connection.
Forcing People to Play? Pathetic.

Not free
by ShaunaStegall on 2017/05/19 15:36
This game takes thousands of dollars to play. I take that back. Even if you've put thousands of dollars into your account you are probably considered irrelevant now. This is a rich persons game. The constant updates are ridiculous and I've actually lost friends I've met playing because they can't keep up. Our kingdom is dead because the people that can max out have and everyone else is shielded. So there's no one to attack so you just sit there with your giant money pit doing nothing. Thanks Mz for ruining a once great game
Awful
by DerpSong on 2017/05/19 13:55
The game is lacking in content and full of false advertisement, you run out of supplies almost all the time unless you spend tons of money for things that won't last for a day. AND STOP ADVERTISING CAN'T PLAY AN APP WITH OUT GETTING AN AD OR EVEN WATCH YOUTUBE.

4+ years on game and $100k+ later
by Mozzimo on 2017/05/19 05:10
Monthly spend required to play this game is $2500 usd just to stay current on new features and the ability to compete. Game primarily caters / preys on players with highly addictive personalities that have deep pockets and use the game for therapeutical purposes. The game crashes and lags non-stop. One would think that a developer that has revenues over 600B would invest more in the stability of game vs selling $100 usd packs with obsolete gear and items that will never be used. All and all is a fun game, with a great social concept. But lacks the ability to scale. If I had one word to describe MZ (the game developers) in their approach to maintain and scale the game it would be - Greed
Great game gone bad
by Tkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk on 2017/05/19 04:58
Used to be best game out there. MZ greed is phenomenal as new items are constantly being designed that warrant spending $$$$ if one wishes to actually fight. There are infrequent kvk battle events which afford actual fighting - 1 battle event every 2-3 weeks and in the meantime new items and 'packs' become available for one to spend $$. Furthermore, with all the available statistics and high range statistically powerful items that are created there is no statistical analysis available via battle report after fighting. For example you won't know what your 100,000% defense item actually did for you after you've spent £££ to get that item to use. Lastly, mz can't be bothered to upgrade the other aspects of the game .... oh .... wait .... that wouldn't make them any money. Stay away unless you want to spend as much money as you would spend buying a car in order to be relevant in .... a game.
Worst game ever.
by BarBQerz on 2017/05/18 23:15
I had high hopes for this game, but unfortunately they let me down. This game is convoluted, and hard to navigate, it is literally pay-to-win, meaning that the only way you'll be able to advance farther in the game and feel like you are doing well, you need to pay for a chest. On top of that, the game and the company has scummy business practices, promising in game currency, but then not following through when you actually fulfill the agreed upon terms set. Screw this game, and screw the people that run it. If I could I'd give them 0/5 stars, and I will be recommending that no one should play this game.
Was fun at one time
by Hgsbhjhg on 2017/05/18 21:03
I joined this game pretty much when it first came out. It was so much fun and addicting. Now it's all about how much money you have. I just received an email from game of war to come back and receive 1 million free gold. Dam I wonder how much gold those high ballers have.

This game is a money pit. MZ puts out new updates every few days that cost hundreds of dollars to keep up with. Watch your bank account when you buy "discounted" packs; I caught them on more than one occasion charging me full price. When I challenged it with my bank, I found myself kicked off the App Store (App Store was disabled). I don't recommend this game and encourage you to drop the game from your library if you already play!
Spend your money elsewhere
by MrTahpHayt on 2017/05/17 15:10
Aha, look, It's that game with the Legend27 meme. Let's give it a shot... Oh. *Oh.* This is baaaaaaaaaaaad. As many people have pointed out, Game of War requires money to win. And unlike other games such as Clash of Clans, whose one star ratings are nothing more than salty children whose parents will not let them spend money on precious gems which merely help speed up gameplay, this is not hyperbole. YOU WILL NEED TO SPEND MONEY TO POSSIBLY STAND A CHANCE, LET ALONE WIN. Right from the start you can tell the developers are already massively money hungry. Upon startup you are brought to a map where roughly 50% of the screen is special offers, ads, and bonus deals. (I'm not exaggerating, look for yourself.) You are offered tons of great offers and deals for "reasonable" prices, which the game will constantly shove down your throat every 10 seconds. Oh sure, you don't *have* to buy them, but the game will not hesitate to constantly remind you about all the great bonuses and rewards you're missing out on. And then there's the gameplay. OH GOD, THE GAMEPLAY. First off, the wait times for research and building gets atrocious at later levels, but I'll elaborate more on that once I get into the meat of the whole "pay to win" thing. As I mentioned earlier the ui is a bloody cluttered mess and nowhere is it explained what button does what or where you can go to find a specific menu. You do not actually participate in defense or offense battles, as the annoying ads the game features would have you believe. Instead you sit around and wait, which in case you couldn't tell is something you do a lot in this game. All you do is sit on your a** waiting for something to happen, but alas, it never does. Before I get into my overall argument about how this game is a huge waste of your time and money, I'd like to get back to CoC, specifically the matchmaking system. In Clash, if you wanted to raid someone's village, the game would search through the playerbase and then pull up another player of a similar skill level for you. This is fair for the attacker in that it ensures that while they won't be raiding particularly easy villages, they won't be forced to raid a high-level player base they'd probably have no chance of beating, and it's fair to the defender in that it softens the blow if they get raided, and allows them a fair chance to fight back. And on top of that, the game also compensates for player resources, too. If you constantly search the playerbase till you find a village with very few defenses compared to your own, sure you can raid it for easy resources, but you will reap much fewer benefits and the opponent will lose much fewer trophies because they were at a distinct disadvantage. On the other hand, If you try your luck at a village with significantly stronger defenses than your own, you run a higher chance of losing, but if you do in fact succeed, your rewards will be greater. Why do I bring all this up? Because Game of War has none of it. Yes, you heard me right. If you're playing this game, you are constantly at risk of being raided by a player with a much higher skill level, meaning they can take you out with ease, while at the same time they recieve no repurcussions for doing so. They get all your resouces with no penalty. It's not like you can fight back, you're way to underleveled, and levelling up is nigh impossible due to being constantly raided. And the developers know this. Which is why they made the wait times for research and building unreasonably absurd. I'm talking thousands of hours for one upgrade. And of course you can be raided at any time, making any upgrade you started pointless. Sure, you can use speedups, but those require gold, which require money. Like I said, you will need to spend money to stand a fighting chance. Not an option, a neccesity. You will need to regularly devote your funds to this game, because the game is updating every other day, which not only makes any actual reviews not paid for by the developer dissapear, but also adds new stuff for you to spend your hard earned cash on, making the last new new new tier of vip you just purchased worthless. Fun! Tl:dr Game of War and its inbred child Mobile Strike are nothing more than apps meant for you to pay money to, disguised as games. Save your money. Don't touch this one eith a ten foot long pole. In fact, don't do that, not even a ten foot long pole would enjoy this garbage.
Way Too Expensive!!!
by Ldyoung0728 on 2017/05/17 15:07
Don't even start with this game - that is my recommendation! And if you are playing and spending, do yourself a favor and stop cold turkey like I did. It's hard to leave friends and alliances, but not putting anymore money into MZ's pocket is well worth it. Buy a car, go on a trip, spend time with family and not with this worthless game devised by a greedy company. This game costs BIG BUCKS if you want to compete. Just don't....

by Embyr2232 on 2017/05/17 12:49
Veteran player here. This game has gone seriously downhill. Be prepared to shell out $300-1000 per month if you want to keep up and have fun with the updates. The thresholds for attack/defense/etc become obsolete every week and you're required to spend hundreds of dollars to keep playing.
Bad...just bad attempt to steal your money
by Buletz4brekfest on 2017/05/17 12:39
I have seen well over a dozen games exactly like this except the only way to actually get good is to spend your money on this useless money grab .... You can play for free at the beginning but later the game becomes bull. It's absolutely horrible, and as another person said, reminds me of illegal drug dealers. Would give 0 stars if I could
Too expensive
by mistress VI on 2017/05/17 12:28
Just don't do it. Don't download game. It's way too expensive to stay competitive in the game. Mz keeps dropping huge DAILY releases that cost at minimum $100 to get (rarely will it just be $100). If you can't afford that you will sit with a shield and click buttons all day. I've been playing 5 years now and every day they are losing 10-20 players I know because of this. Yeah I know 5 years and I am still playing. Why? Because I am one of the fools that invested huge money in the game to get screwed daily with another Mz release.
Pay A LOT for Little Play
by Purple II on 2017/05/17 12:17
This games constantly asks me for a review so here it is. This game is pay to play. You won't get anywhere if you don't pay at least something. I don't mean a little money. I mean A LOT. If you want to be a top player, you'll spend thousands. I'm not joking. A good Xbox or PlayStation game brand new costs around $60 or $120 if you purchase the entire DLC pack. This game...$100 will barely get you anywhere 😂😂 It was fun at first, but all of these $99 packs that get released almost daily ruins the fun. I don't have a few grand every few months to throw away on a mobile game. Otherwise, it's great. MZ really screwed the pooch when it comes to how much this game costs. Bye MZ. It was fun for a few months.

by Shodorowski on 2017/05/17 10:15

by Nate the pimp on 2017/05/17 06:23
Have been playing this game for a year and finally quit when for the third time a peace shield failed WELL before time was up. I set an external timer the last time so I'm sure. Had a little over 22 hours left. Also, this is the greediest game I've ever played. The in game purchases are NECESSARY to achieve any level of play. The farming you do is of NO consequence. Oh, and I was at level 30, the highest you can go, currently. I hope these programmers lose everything they have and end up on the u employment line. Pathetic! Avoid this game like the plague if you've got any sense at all.
Game should be shutdown by the Govt
by Todsrile12 on 2017/05/17 04:08

Money Pit
by bassman61 on 2017/05/17 03:43
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.
Expensive
by Harwood95 on 2017/05/17 01:40
This developer is responsive but unwilling to correct purchase errors, which are way too easy to make. I didn't even know I had made a purchase of $100! They were completely unwilling or unable to work with me. Luckily Apple was completely helpful and refunded the charge. Thank you Apple! I'm deleting this account and App!

The game was "entertaining" but way to expensive. The reason I purchased the game is because like most of us we played the mini games expecting for the game to be something like this. This is false advertising because I watched many advertisement and the game was very different. The game should either be taken down or fix its advertising!!

Not worth the $$$
by Sstormwatch on 2017/05/16 18:39
It was the game in the ad I enjoyed playing, and this is not that game. This game is ok, for using up time setting up your little city-state. But it is clearly designed for heavy purchasing of all sorts of things, and for combatting your neighbors once you've spent time and lots of money equipping your hero/city-state. Like the other reviewers said, expect to spend a lot of money, hundreds of $$$, if not lots more, to play among the big league. I got to level 22 with only paying $5 for their first pack, and was in a large busy guild that helped, but I could not actually unshield long enough to get anywhere, or claim much of anything, before a bigger fish took the prize. And then after you slog through lvl 21 to advance, and max out a hero at L60 (unless you pay to unlock higher levels), the whole time frame of how long it takes to build your city exploded into 15000 days and longer, all to force you to spend real money for speed ups to advance. It really is a money maker for them, and you will get little in return, since you are in constant need of more speed ups. Not worth it.

by Jessa31188 on 2017/05/16 18:22
Use to be such a great game, costly but fun nonetheless. Over the last 6 months, MZ has gone off the deep end. Little by little increasing the rate of new releases until it hit 7 releases in 5 days about 2 weeks ago. Dedicated players are dropping left and right unless you are one of the GOW "celebrities" your opinion and feedback means nothing to MZ. They do not care about their customer base. They do not care that the game is so full of glitches that it makes it almost impossible to play at times. Their greed is becoming the downfall of what use to be an amazing game. What's heartbreaking is the fact that so many people have played together for so long, creating solid friendships, and they are all forced to quit because MZ releases faster than people can keep up. They are burning people out. Hopefully they open their eyes and pull their heads out of their asses to see the long term potential the game has.

by Ccmoya on 2017/05/16 16:57
The game was Fun up until MZ started getting greedy adding new research and Gear where you can only get through Packs with a 40 Mill income and still they continue releasing new stuff as for the packs they will not help you complete anything you have to purchase various packs to complete a research tree and the consumption of rss to have enough troops is outrageous and if you dont pay attention all that money gets lost if you get hit and are not on hundreds of dollars down the drain in order to stay on track with game Dont let the FREE logo catch you the only thing free is the download after that be ready to spend hundreds !!!!

It will also send you a ton of notifications during the day that may run down your battery and are just flat out ANNOYING. But if you turn off the notifications, you miss that someone attacked your city and took everything you have... It definitely needs to cut down on the notifications

-I'm supposed to be playing Game of War but this one update keeps kicking my a s s -Was it these previous updates? -Yeah, the updates. -I've heard that these updates rose out of greed, born from developers who don't care about their customers/ players. -I've heard that these new updates hurled players out of the competitive ring, forcing them to spend thousands. -Aww, you guys... It couldn't be that bad... •>>ACTUALLY IT IS<<•
Zero Stars If I Could
by VAsFynest1 on 2017/05/16 02:02
If you don't plan on spending hundreds of dollars on a monthly basis just to keep up with updates in this game, then don't waste your time. You'll need to take out a loan just to keep up with this game. Not worth it.
App keeps closing

The game is fun, but I keep having issues with the app randomly freezing than shutting down and I never have this issue on my Samsung note 5.. Just my iPad 2. Any thoughts?

Getting too expensive

Lots of fun, but if you don't have the money to keep buying packs, you get left behind. Starting to get old MZ.
GOW FOR LIFE !!!!!
by dwells829 on 2015/10/13 04:33
The thing that needs to be made aware about GOW, is the separation of two different categories here giving reviews. The ones who don't want to spend a dime or very little (farmvillers) and the ones that will sell there house and kid for packs.... Two completely different worlds of game play. For the farmvillers it isn't a fun game. All it takes is one slip of your shield to drop and all your months of hard farmvilling is toast, zeroed... Before you even know what happened. Most farmvillers last a few months tops before they are cursing the game and give up. The other side to this game is where the actual game play happens. .."The spenders" they have all the fun, joining rally's and conquering wonders, once your big enough to enter the forest and join rally's your having a blast with this game, with new packs now you can get t4 troops with a few $100 packs.... Pretty cheap fun, considering it takes about $8k to max research. And that's a whole world of its own game play also.. Battling at the Super wonder with Stay 😍😍... Every power level is like buying a ps4 game with all the new things you are able to do. Don't listen to the Farmvillers bash on GOW when they have never actually played GOW. It truly is a masterpiece and so much more than just a phone app... It will consume you and your new family will be your alliance and your kingdom members... Nothing else matters ☺️.... Except your job to keep buying packs 😂
Good game
by Gsrev on 2014/01/26 04:55
A lot of grinding in this game. The game is fun but as you level up higher, each buildings takes longer to upgrade. You will go from 5 mn wait time to hours and finally days. Let's not mention you risked getting attacked by other players making you restart all over again. The best choice is to join an alliance, and ask them to help you upgrade. Alliance also offer protection since higher ranked alliance won't get attacked often. Sometimes other alliances will join forces to control a section of the kingdom which is pretty huge. The game is very detailed and there's a lot of politics in the game. People take it a bit too seriously. I gave it 4 star on how detailed and addictive it is. It could've been 5 stars if weren't for the fact that you got to pay money in order to be at the top. Nothing would be wrong but everything is expensive in this game. $100 for a couple of in-game gold? Not really worth it if you ask me. No wonder people take this game seriously after investing so much it only makes sense. On the plus side if you join an alliance with a leader that do spend money, you get extra gifts that you wouldn't have had you been a regular player. In conclusion joining an alliance is a must and actually make the game much more fun. The way people interact in the game really make the game for me. It's worth a download and you spend a lot of time in it. Very good and detailed game
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fun at first, then pointless
by LV1220 on 2013/08/03 05:18
Like everyone else, I thought this game was incredible when it was released. More strategic than Clash of Clans and more detailed. The build rate and upgrades were exciting and I couldn't put down my phone for two days. Then, like every game of this type, it slowed down once I became too high-leveled. Worse though is that the rest of the game doesn't provide enough motivation to deal with the slow pace. Here's a secret: You will NOT become the top player unless you drop some serious real money. Even worse, you will get consistently steam-rolled by stronger players and alliances that were beta-testers and have 20 days of playing behind them. Also frustrating to some is that there aren't any serious consequences to being defeated. Your city and buildings cannot be destroyed. All that happens is you lose your supply of resources, whatever city defenses you have, troops, and maybe your hero. The only real consequence is that it takes a while to restock all your supplies and rebuild your army. Then it's back to Groundhog Day. If you want a social experience, then this game will still satisfy. The Alliance structure encourages people to work together. For strategy game enthusiasts though, it's too simplistic. The game doesn't really seem to go anywhere or accomplish anything more than being a game-oriented chat room. Some may still find it fun months from now, but after over a week of playing, I'm too bored to continue.
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!!!
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
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!
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.
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.
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
Horribly one sided game
by Momo2203467 on 2014/12/30 13:09
This is the first review I've ever written on any game period. I would like to start off by saying this game is addicting. It has fun mechanics that would make for some awesome gameplay. To say it's one sided is completely an understatement. I played this game for months about a year ago. Took a long time to progress to SH 17 with just a little money spending. Even back then there were big spenders who took the fun out of the game. Having the capability of a single player being able to wipe out an entire alliance of SH 15 and up is utterly ridiculous. Higher level players in larger alliances farm the smaller ones constantly. There is no room to grow unless you hide and buy peace shield after peace shield. I quit almost a year ago because of alliances just farming all the lower players constantly. Decided to give it another run a day ago. BIG MISTAKE. I activated my old level 17 SH account and used all speed boosts to get my researching up and heal all my troops back. It literally took 1 day for a max level player with 3 billion power to teleport in and farm the entire alliance I joined. No resources, no troops, no traps, and a hero in yet another prison. Don't waste your time with this game unless you're willing to spend ALOT of money to be competitive. The developers know the big spenders will keep spending and have tailored the game to keep them around instead of making any progress toward bringing in new players and keeping them.
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.
My experience
by Ebonywarriorcats on 2014/02/23 00:12
I've been playing this game for over 100 days. At first I loved the game I made it all the way to lvl 15 with the lvl cap being 21. But then I started experiencing harassment from other players users with superiority complexes that think its funny to pick on people and abuse the game, they mailed me constantly, probably at least 20 members of one group, most of it was just random BS but some of it was personal and hurtful, this has gone on for days I can't chat in kingdom chat I get told to just go play something else if I don't like it, when I log in to play my mail box is going off constantly I changed my player name but they figured out who I was and continue to bomb my mail box my whole game experience has been so tarnished I don't think I even want to play anymore and certainly will not recommend any one I know subject themselves to such relentless bulling. Also when ever I have written in to support it takes weeks for them to respond and nothing ever gets done about any of it I usually get a generic response that doesn't resolve anything at al, no compensation, no real info that's useful and no penalty to the "problem" users that abuse the game. And this also applies to glitch issues nothing has ever been done, I get " sorry for the inconvenience we will look into it" or " you have to collect the Athena's gift before it expires" when the issue was that the thing never appeared until after it was expired. :( not impressed at all
False advertising and a terrible game.
by Carsegna on 2014/10/29 03:51
Alright so I saw this games ad for awhile now and finally decided to se its worth. All I can say Is that I was disappointed by everything. First off, the advertising for this game was completely misleading. What they use for the previews aren't even in the game. It's simply to make it look better. Second, the actual quality of the game can compare to that of something that would run on one of the old original iOS devices. I'm talking original iPod graphics and engine. I will admit that it kinda looked interesting at first. However once you get farther into the game. It is extremely boring and would more closely represent a social network for ten year old boys than an actual iOS game, Even for a free game. But what really put the nail in the coffin for me personally was the fact that when you go to attack another player, its more of if you have more numbers than the opposing player than actual strategy. When they were marketing this game they promised strategy. Which there is a significant lack of in this game. It doesn't mater where you place your structures because if the attacking player has more numbers it is considered an automatic win. If you coming from games like clash you'll also be disappointed to hear that their is no troop placement or command. Just numbers. So in my honest opinion this is disgrace to your purchases tab. I hope you'll take my advice and find some other mobile game to play.
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!!
Worst customer service..huge scam
by Horrible scam on 2014/08/24 03:47
I have 2 t4 accts in this game which cost thousands of dollars to build. 4 days ago I received a message stating "server under maintenance. Please try again after a while". Since this game always has server issues I figured it would be fixed within the hour. I still do not have access to my acct and it has been attacked and I've lost everything. I've mailed MZ at least 100 times asking them to fix the issue , tried everything they have asked me to do and obviously it's an issue on their side. When I asked them to shield my account so I wouldn't lose everything they ignored me then that night it was hit. My last message I received from them 2 days ago said that they would be forwarding my issue to the developers to fix the issue. I can not get anyone from mz to reply to me or give me even an update on the issue. I would advise everyone to not spend any more money in this game because this could happen to anyone. you will lose everything and Mz will not do anything to help you, they don't even have the decency to respond to you. they will do anything to get your money but will not do anything to help you when they screw up. I'm still waiting for my reply of what they plan on doing to go forward in reimbursing me but sadly I hVe a strong feeling I will not be getting any kind of reply from them. Do not play the game do not spend your money. It's the worst kind of scam.
Ridiculous
by Annabear_ on 2015/07/07 05:02
First off I like this game. I really do it's neat and well organize with certain things. However, the developers have develop a game that they could feed off from people's wallet. The packs that they provide not only cost good amount of money, but every time you purchase, it doubles up the price until you hit a hundred. Yeah they design this pretty well so they could make money. I understand business is all about money, but this is ridiculous. Not only that, the options in the game with building, researching or training, especially digging takes 100 days until you complete it. Wow. I have contacted MZ and they have said it is on how player plays the game. Now tell me this, the only way a player will be able to speed up in those areas will be to spend more cash from their pocket. This is a game for your customers to enjoy. But the only customers you guys will have later on are those who are willing to spend thousands of dollars in this game. You will loose customers if this continue. Everything about this game cost money no matter how much you guys explain this to anyone. It's design well. The developers sure are smart and greedy. But that's just my personal opinion. So anyone who is not planning to spend thousands and hundreds or dollars don't even bother. Cause those who have will just annihilate you with their great power!!!
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.
Waste of time
by Slivermonger on 2014/09/16 22:56
This game is engineered to make you pay thousands to compete. Waste of time and the developers always force 100 dollar packages on you upon login. Developers are too greedy. However, since some spendthrifts threw 10s of thousands of dollars to build up their city, they figured intelligence in the world population is declining. This game was created for profit vs user entertainment so should not be around much longer due to declining user interest. Ppl still join only to realize there is no point. Clash of clans is as fun and way cheaper and you don't NEED to buy where this game you will go nowhere unless you clear your bank account. This game is nowhere near free. Game was created to milk as much money as possible. Even with all of the money they made being a top grosser b4, game still has glitches. 9 months of daily log ins and 75 dollars later, I am still one of the weakest cities. Smh. It gets boring the stronger you get cause you either have to wait 30+ days for research or pay. Game has a serious imbalance favoring rich people or people with stolen credit cards cause too expensive. And times where I sent feedback, sometimes not positive, all of a sudden my prizes decline. Not sure if that is a coincidence. Do not play for fun either because the game is ran by the strongest person per kingdom. This game is not really about strategy. It's about size
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.
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.
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.
This game is broken
by HavocK62 on 2015/02/25 16:27
The developer is aware and has ignored several game breaking mechanics, most recently and egregiously the embassy cheat which completely takes any fair play and competitive aspect away from the games "kingdom vs kingdom" kill events and tourneys. This game is not worth downloading at this time. Shame after playing for almost 2 years it has come to this point. Greed over quality by the developers. The T1 traps have made events boring and tedious. Embassy cheat in kill events is by far the most outlandish thing I have ever encountered in a game. Kill events state "Kill one outlander t3 troop - 40 points, kill one outlander t4 troop - 100 points." No where in this does it state "Kill your own t4 troop - 100 points." However, that's all some of these kingdoms are doing to win in kingdom vs kingdom kill events. Many kingdoms have cut off spending due to this and the lack of action by MachineZone. We have submitted many helpspot tickets and they simply just give us an automated reply, the best one was "This is part of military strategy, you should unite with your alliance members and think of ways to overcome this strategy!" Absurd, you would think they would want to fix a cheat to at least provide a level of fairness to the players. Until they fix this embassy cheat, many players will not spend another dime and will not participate in any events at all including myself, my alliance, and my kingdom.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There's a lot of commercials
by Windyboy413 on 2015/03/06 04:29
When I try to play my game peacefully the commercial of this game keeps on popping out of no where!! I just want to destroy this game because it's commercials!! Can the people who made the game please stop with the commercials I think everybody is tried of it too. I just want to report this game if anyone else is tried of the commercials please write #triedofcommercial for the title of the review. Please take off the commercials the more there are commercials the more people get tried of it and stop playing are will never start playing this game. I just downloaded this game for this report that's how mad I am. If you stop with a lot of commercials I think you can have more people playing because you can a have some commercials but not on all the game like really people. I'm just trying to say just get rid of all the commercials and put them on some games not all games the commercials are even on kids game and the lady in the commercial is showing some of her breast like really. Your going to make a child horrified!!! if I see a lot of commercials I will report you a million times please stop!! I bet when you stop you will get even more people and I would even start playing too!! PLEASE STOP! That all and thank you for reading. I'm giving a 1 star sorry I could give a 5 star in the future maybe if you stop with the commercials. That's all
An ILAnd of stupidity in a sea of greed.
by Amused time killers on 2014/08/16 08:44
I have been playing since last November when it WAS a really cool strategy and fighting game. Sure the guys willing to pay real money got built up a little faster but with patience and a good alliance you could do well. Now they make so many POINTLESS events that don't do anything but make the developer money. Organized good alliances cannot win gold anymore or win a tiny amount so that if you want to grow you almost HAVE to purchase with real money. Simple war game with kill events each weekend has morphed into who can build the most troops wearing the color green on a Tuesday if the month has an even number of days. (Sure a slight embellishment for effect, but not far from the truth). Events are poorly thought out. Game has added so many superfluous features that it takes forever to load and finally when you play it is many times slow and glitchy. Original game was a simple fast corvette. fun to play, quick and easy to maneuver. Now it's a Rube Goldberg invention taking 150 moving parts to make your morning toast. Please save yourself the time and aggravation of playing this game and don't download unless you have about 3,000 dollars to waste just to play a game that has become lame even if you have a good city to fight with. Everything they have done to "enhance" the game is only ways to enhance the size of their bank account.
Nothing nice to say so say nothing at all :)
by Addicted gameaholic on 2014/09/27 19:28
I've always been told if you can't say nothing nice say nothing at all, however this time I'm going to back up the nothing nice and explain why. About a week ago I was logging in to an account and kept getting "password can't be empty" error so I asked three other ppl to log in to the account and they got the same error. When I mailed mz the response was that it was the Internet connection. Ironically all 4 ppl that tried in 3 different countries were having internet connection issues at the exact same time. I let this go knowing machine zones lack of decency to make it right. The account was zeroed and hero executed. Then on Thursday 9/25 I wasn't able to get into my own account from around 8pm-2am due to an "emergency maintenance" that machine zone claimed a server blew. Imagine my surprise when I was able to log in again that not only had my city been hit at 9:30, when no one was supposedly on but that my hero is captured waiting to be executed, troops are now dead/hospitalized and what is machine zone doing about it? I would love to tell you but they haven't responded to my mails and probably won't. I haven't spent enough to pay their mortgage but I have paid my them enough to keep up their internet so they can respond but I can't afford the buy them the decency to do so. Hope this helps with your decision of the game. Not recommended, xAngelEyesx
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!!!
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!!
Used to be good
by Zachhh77 on 2014/12/27 21:43
I have been playing this game almost since the beginning. It started out great plenty of wars and while spenders have an advantage they could be beat with superior game play. Now spenders hit 3 billion power in two weeks when people who played for a year had not even hit a billion. It is impossible to compete with the spenders as MZ continues to create more and more advantages for them. There are almost know wars now as competitions have become based on research and troop growth. No surprise who wins that. When the one kill event a month happens the spenders are so far ahead that you can't compete at all. While I have spent some on the game it has become outrageous at what they want people to spend. As far as starting new. If you don't spend don't spend don't bother. You will have people on a new world at a1/2 a billion to a billion power inside of two weeks. This basically eliminates any real gameplay and strategy regarding in world battles as you simply can't compete. Used to be a great game. While I am at almost a billion power myself it took a year and a lot of strategy and learning game mechanics. Now it takes a push of a button and $100. New players stand no chance and most will quit inside of two weeks. There are now researches that over 1000 days to complete. The researches give huge advantages. So if you don't spend find a different game.
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.
Disappointed
by ⛄️⛄️--😠😠😠 on 2014/08/29 10:14
That day MZ was working on their maintenance I had a problem before they started. I've been playing this game for over a year and I've never had an issue with notifications. I have notifications turned on, on the game as well as on my phone and throughout that whole time I never got a single notification that my peace shield was going to expire soon or that I was getting attacked, as well as other notifications from the game. I emailed MZ and notified them of what was going on. MZ emailed me back telling me that maybe I wasn't paying attention, or that it was a connection issue on my side, or that my notifications on the game wasn't on. First of all my significant other plays this game as well, we're in the same alliance and they were receiving notifications from the game. I got hit 22 times and I didn't get a single notification. As soon as they were done with their maintenance I started getting notifications once again, but it was too late. I lost troops, walls, hero, and rss. So far MZ hasn't replied back to me to see if they're going to reimburse me, when obviously it was a mistake on their side. By reading some of the reviews on here I doubt they will reimburse me. Therefore I don't recommend this game just for the simple fact that MZ is bad at reimbursing people as well as they seem to blame the player when the game is messing up on their side.
Buy to play
by That one guy that plays games on 2015/05/01 00:55
Game of War is a pretty addicting game. When I started, my kingdom was 0 days old. Now it is almost 5 months old and I'm still playing. There are awesome and funny people in this game and fighting with your alliance and friends is awesome. However, for you to advance in this game and actually become powerful, you need to either spend loads of money on packs or get in an alliance that spends a lot and you just get the gifts. Theses alliances will not accept small people like me and most of the GOW players since they are made up of spenders. If you do not shield or become powerful, you will constantly be farmed and attacked. You won't be able to have a lot of fun since you will only be able to attack small people and most of the time, they call in their 1 billion power friend who will zero you easily. All these reviews that are saying "Best Game Ever!" Or "Love It!" were made by people in MZ or who were paid by them. This game is fun if you do become powerful but if you don't, you'll just become a farm and one day you'll just quit. I had befriended many people in GOW and about 90% of them have quit. The other 10% are spenders who protect me and help me out. Get this game if you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars. Maybe one day I'll become powerful even though I've only spent $10 :)
Time and money pit
by Sik Rik on 2015/06/10 12:44
Very unbalanced game where the beginner players are at the mercy of players of any level. If you do not have money or ridiculous amounts of time to spend then don't bother playing this game. To become even remotely powerful in this game you must invest months of time and or hundreds of dollars. Research at the mid to upper end of game takes months if not years to complete. Therefore you must spend money to buy speedups to get anything done. Also there is so much you must upgrade that even if you do spend money on upgrade packs you barely scratch the surface of the amount of research necessary to get anything anywhere in this game. At first packs cost anywhere from $5 to $20 dollars which isn't bad. But after 3 or so purchases at any of those prices only $100 packs are available for you to purchase. Even after contacting the support department about this issue you are told it's the sales department that handles that. Basically just giving you the run around blame game. This game revolves around money plain and simple. If you are not willing to spend hundreds of not thousands and countless hours of your time hoping and praying you don't get attacked and lose what can cost you months to build from a single attack from a player then don't bother. Plenty of better games to have fun without breaking the bank or taking up your time.
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.
Excellent! But..
by Jakealake44 on 2014/12/26 17:25
This game is the most addictive and fun game I have ever played in my life... But you have to spend money for it to be fun. I have been playing the game for 32 days and have spent $130 and I am SH 15 and have all tier 3 troops. I am smart with my gold and mainly only use it to upgrade my prison, altar, etc. with the help if the people in my alliance. This game is not like Clash of Clans and you will stay loyal to your alliance because they seem like family to you. Also, in the kingdoms everyone knows each other and there are the people that are rivals and allies. I like this game because you can actually join up with your allies to create a massive hive and protect each other from rival alliances. It is not like Clash of Clans because you actually have a location (coordinates) to where you are and you can change that. But the down side to that is people can find you who have spent more money than you and burn you, but you can change your name, empire name, profile image and more and teleport away from their to escape enemies. Remember though, you need to spend money for this game to be fun and addicting!
BE AWARE Lost Potential
by iXi CoMp iXi on 2015/08/07 00:58
The game was designed great at first. There are still a few things to point out in which I personally didn't like about the game. Machine Zone has a horrible customer service dept. they don't respond when you tell them about technical difficulties with their software. During kill events lots of defense players get rallied and try to put a shield up but it says you have an active March out so you can't, nor can you teleport away. They tell you to restart the game and that if that doesn't solve it then it must just be the lag from your bad connections. They blame our connection for their incapable game server that they use to make hundreds of thousands of dollars.. With all that money couldn't they come out with something a little more dependable? After all, it's WE the consumers who provide you a cash flow profit. Mz doesn't care about the game nor do they care about the players in it. They only care for money. They know how to make a good game, the money, thousands of fans, yet can they invest into something? That's where dedication is needed so I'd go with NO! 😂😂 that's all.. Just thought I'd give a report since their stupid pop up was so eager to find out what I think of this game. 😘☝🏻️👆🏻👌🏻
The "Red Ferrari" of mmo games...lol
by This game "RULES" on 2014/12/09 03:18
Don't waste your time or money on this junk. The dynamics of the game are not set up for any new players to ever win. Unless you get into a new kingdom and have vast amounts of money to spend on fake power, it's really not worth your time. If you get into the Zeno kingdom, quit immediately. The idiots that "rule" the wonder (lol), have no clue. The wonder is on "rotation" by the 5 largest alliances. SMALL minds & even SMALLER appendages, make for a COMPLETE waste of time; which to me is more valuable than any fake power or gold. Lol The larger groups only feed on the smaller ones, so there's no opportunity to grow or ever win. The amount of time these people put into this junk, is beyond my realm of understanding. They play for hours daily, have voice chat set up to keep in constant "control", and there are no limits to the stupidity they won't pull. People are starving in the world & these morons are spending real money on fake food? Get real geniuses! MZ is a joke too. Got a problem? Write to the pope. You'd be more apt to get a response. Customer service is horrible, as it's the same old run around. Spend money on it, then they clam up. No one ever really replies, they just send messages saying they've forwarded it to the proper department..? Well guess what? I'm reporting MZ to the Better Buisness Bureau, for fraud. Seriously...DON'T BOTHER!
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.

Dissapointed

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.
Addicted

I have been playing for about 7 or 8 months now. I just happened to be browsing the App Store for a game that was more inter-active and stumbled on Game of War. Wow!!! I was playing some of the other games I had down loaded and not check this one out yet. When I finally got around to checking out GoW that was it. I deleted most of the other games and started on my quest to conquer the world. I'm still new if you ask me but I finally got accepted into a great alliance and I'm growing. My alliance members are from all over the world and great people to be aligned with both men and women, young and old. I don't know them all yet but the ones that I do are just good people and making friends with them has been great. If you are looking for a game to play and grow and meet new friends this is it. I probably play about 12 hours a day. Addicted is an understatement. You play as much or as little as you want. Give it a try we may become alliance members or even friends. It is a blast. Go ahead, down load it we are all waiting for you. Millions are playing. Why not you? I hope to see you soon.
Worlds Most Corrupted Game of War

I've been playing this game for very very long time. At first this was the most fun game because of so many task to do. It is mostly time consuming, I met tons of friends along the way. I wanted to approve this game a 5 star, but there were severe red flags to me and you should hear this. Tier 4 units is usually the maximum you can get to be the most powerful attacker. Problem is in order to get that, you need to max out all your buildings to 21 and three remaining buildings require "loads of money". Yes, if you want tier 4, you are force to pocket money out over ridiculous requirement. This also brings the sale bundle that cost $100. The bundle is insane ridiculous that a rich person would likely to buy it. Time goes on, another special $100 would have more bundle than before, making you waste your money previously. Chaining to this cause, this also bring insanely overpowered castle. You will likely to see Castle with over more than just a billion power. Best part of all? Kingdom event. You will likely to have enemies from another kingdom who will mostly teleport close to you and attack you without giving a chance to act, causing you to lose your hero capture and be executed by the time the enemy kingdom teleports away with your hero. This game has become the most unfair and money grabbing I have ever met.
Bottomless pit

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...
