Too many notifications, boring, scams.
by Nobody I'm Trolling Ha Ha on 2018/04/20 21:10
At first it was fun and exciting, but after awhile it was just bland and horrible. It was the same stuff over and over again. Sure there are “updates” but they always do minor bug fixes and small changes. I turned my notifications off for this game because of the crazy notifications. My castle was building so I wanted my another game called War Dragons and I was in the middle of a very important battle that determined if my team won or not and as usual Game Of War gives me three notifications of the exact thing back to back to back. Sometimes it even gives you four notifications. I even paid 12 dollars on this game. What a waste. The transaction didn’t even work, it didn’t give me the stuff I PAID FOR. Do not buy this game, you will hate it. Trust me. Scams everywhere.
No longer a good game
by Momdinger on 2018/04/20 12:40
This used to be the best game out there and at one time I would have given it 5plus stars. It is really the only game I have ever spent money on and thought it was well worth it. I enjoyed loyal friends from all over the world and had great conversations while taking on other alliances. It was so much fun! But there is never a point where the money spent was enough for the developers. MZ made the game bigger and bulkier with this stupid “god” thing and quite frankly annoying. It takes forever to load. The costs of things moved from comprehensible to a confusing, annoying, not worth the time and effort to figure out monstrosity. It is a nightmare mess. Longtime Alliance members and friends left in droves. Even those who had spent thousands of dollars on the game. If you are new, do not waste your time or money on this current monstrosity. It is truly awful. What a shame.
Greedy
by machine no on 2018/04/20 09:29
If it is made by MZ machine zone don’t even try it. Bad servers and do not care for their customers. Will change the game so no matter what you are zeroed and have to start over. Take your car drive down the highway and throw it out the window far better reward. If could give no zeroes I would.
$$$
by AudaciouslyMe on 2018/04/19 00:26
When I first started playing in 2013 it was a great game. You could pay for an edge but you didn’t have to use money to stay competitive. Now it’s basically impossible to play without paying. There’s no point now unless you’re willing to sink thousands of dollars into the game. And it’s not worth that.
Not worth the money loss
by MZ does not care about you on 2018/04/17 16:38
Great concept. MZ got way to greedy and has made the game unattractive
MZ totally destroyed the game
by Galsitan on 2018/04/16 03:58
There are insane updates every week that makes it crazy and really hard to keep up unless you spend a lot of money. It use to be a great and fun game.
To big, to slow and no help
by McBuce on 2018/04/14 15:03
The game used to be fun, it’s gotten to big and to slow. Only the people who are willing to spend money advance and are strong enough to win battles. I can’t restore wall defenses and get VIP help on my research. Know body from the developer offered help to fix it when I sent a message.
Money pit
by purpleraven87 on 2018/04/13 14:57
You can’t do anything without paying for things. And they just charge me $100 when I didn’t even want anything. It was fun at first but know it 2 much. You buy $100 packages to level up your buildings.
Money pit
by Jsew222 on 2018/04/13 05:20
Such a sucky game. Especially now. They have a cool concept but they’re greedy and completely ruined it almost a year ago.

Can’t believe I wasted my money and time.
Takes $$ to be productive
by JoCray32988 on 2018/04/11 01:09
If you can do about $1000 a month into the game, and have several hours to upgrade. An also enjoy 12 hours of actually game play a week. This is the game for you, if not...I suggest keep looking. Even a $1000 a month is cutting it short with this game.

Machine Zone ruined this game through pure greed ! Shame on them ! Waste of time and money.

by Tommy2gunZz on 2018/04/10 15:20
I loved this game when I first started a few years back. It was fun and had meaning. Yeah you spent a little money, but it was worth the fun to build up your army and stronghold and make friends in your alliance. Now the game is all about the Company’s greed and not the gamer. They took a fun challenging game and turned it into a pay to play game that requires no skill if you have $$$$. Sad.
I would give it no stars if I could
by JermG79 on 2018/04/09 01:03
Used to be great. Everything’s $100 now. Even the people seem to have gotten more annoying. Also no support from MZ to correct game flaws.
Don't waste your money
by nabori19 on 2018/04/08 11:54
This game used to be fun and exciting but the developers greed and craziness have made this game an expensive one and crazy. They keep adding stuff so people are forced to buy (well, stupid people) and honestly, I go to my account and I don't get it anymore. Game of War is sort of like a ghost town where not even the kingdom chat is very active because people got disappointed and have move on to other games. Lots of people complained to the developers when they firsts started with their madness but they didn't listen and this is why a lot of people quit playing. Too bad MZ got so greedy cause I missed the game...the old game! 😥
Used to be:
by Vegas Bobbie on 2018/04/08 04:51
This game was fun when I got started. Now..... Unless you invest large sums of money to keep up with those that can wipe out your entire army. The game is no longer fun or challenging. Also when you meet all the requirements or upgrades. The developer adds more levels to achieve at a $$$$$.
Waste of time and money
by Veeri on 2018/04/08 00:58
This game is no good. All the mini app purchase packs are expensive and do not get you anywhere. 3 months into the game your kingdom will be ported to ancient kingdoms and then you are purchasing pack after pack just to keep up. But the power up is meaningless. Few years ago it was a good game. But not anymore. Apple should monitor the tactics of MZ. They do not give what they promise in the packs and they alwAys keep changing their top most level.
Crap
by swimmer08 on 2018/04/06 21:16
Game crashes a lot and requires lots of money for nothing. Don’t bother downloading this crap app.
Addictive lol 👎 update 😁
by Pshtr on 2018/04/05 16:51
Like the game a lot. Gets expensive though. But game play is really good, hard to get bored. Stay shielded 😄 UPDATE: quit months ago 😂. They changed gameplay so much. It’s not even fun anymore, always having to upgrade this, train that. Hardly time to actually play because they added stuff so fast to get you to spend more faster. huge money grab now, even more so than before. There’s no strategy anymore, spend the most the fastest you’re good. PLZ save your money.
Shut this app down
by GREEDY GOW on 2018/04/05 02:17
Played the first week it came out. Played for 4 years and eventually realized I had spent thousands of dollars on a it. I was addicted. I loved the people I played with and even was in the top tier alliance in my kingdom, the original Ninjas of Gladdi. So save money I trapped instead of attacking which worked for about a week before they upped troop march, strength, and gear. So I bought again and again just to keep up at bare minimum. 2 days later I was so below the bottom line I almost got zeroed out in 1 hit. I quit not long after that and it looks like it’s just gotten worse. Sad I lost friends and contacts. Machine zone company doesn’t give a flying fuk about their customer base. Most of the time the only reason they made player motivated changes was because we boycotted. It’s sad to see the manipulation and addiction tactics they use against their players
Review
by XxValiant316 on 2018/04/04 16:52
I been playing this game for a few years now I first started in kingdom 304 tiki but I think this game is getting to complicated harder to play with all the new stuff that keep coming. I like game that are simple and that don't break your wallet it's to late for me to stop playing cause I invested a lot of time and money in this game so I'm just going to keep playing cause I meet a lot of friends in this game but most of them already left the game. I think they should slow down on bringing in the new stuff and slow down on the new updates they should bring the prices down or have different catogory of prices not just 100.00 dollars packs. Most players already mentioned this to mz but I don't think there will be any slow down.
Ridiculous
by Dem12644 on 2018/04/04 06:14
This is no longer a “strategy” game, because you can’t even make any progress unless you are willing to spend $$$. I only log into this to see how ridiculous this game has become with their 1,100+ stonghold levels.
I used to love GoW
by TorrieJ. on 2018/04/03 00:54
GoW was fun and exciting; now I'm only going on to the game to make sure my shields are up! I can't compete with people that spend a grand a month on upgrades. I don't even know why I keep the game on my phone.
Great revenue model.
by TwoSherpaz on 2018/04/02 01:42
I am completely ashamed I wasted so much time and money on this terribly addictive game. Psychologists and behavioral scientists developed a game that bleeds you of cash. This is maybe the worst thing I’ve ever experienced on the Internet.
Used to be fun
by MommyofD on 2018/04/02 00:58
A few years ago, this game was really fun and exciting. Now, they’ve added soooo much stuff that it masked it hard to even play the game anymore. So many people have left. Bring it back to the basics like it used to be without all of this extra crap that you’ve brought in, and it’ll be great again 👍🏼
Pay to Play is a SCAM
by Rob San Miguel on 2018/04/02 00:41
I wonder how many ppl go BROKE trying to play this game. These people are the devil himself. I hope you choke on the money you scam people out of.
Money hungry
by Gejgfg on 2018/03/31 15:33
This game just wants you to spend money
Sad 😪
by mightyalbert5 on 2018/03/31 06:44
This game is really fun but...all the game wants you to do is spend $$$ and buy "MORE PACKS" the longer you play the more upgrades you need and there in some cases where the building time can take over 5 months to build and unless you buy a speed pack with $$$ you will have to wait that long.☹️ this game was really fun before the did a pay to win game and i used to play it days on end I got to level 500 yesterday but other people are level 1000 because they bought packs I haven't bought 1 pack yet and I'm that level but I've been playing for 3 years now... what I'm trying to say is Don't get this game unless you want to lost a lot of $$$ listen to me ok?? Peace ✌️
The average person spends over 500$ on this game
by Matt man05 on 2018/03/31 00:28
Am a fair grader this game deserves this rate. If your free to play my math calculations says you would never get everything in the game without money by the time you did you would be dead. Just make good again it used to be but not any more.
Mixed emotions
by LT806 on 2018/03/30 21:58
I enjoy the game, but I can say it was a lot more fun a couple of years back when the amount it cost to be a viable competitor was a lot lower. Now if you want to stay competitive it’s several hundred dollars a month and a significant investment of time as well. I still play and absolutely LOVE the camaraderie of friends around the world! I’ve not encountered a game that integrates worldwide access and translation like this does. The friends are what keeps me coming back now...the game has kinda lost its overall allure otherwise.
Most expensive app
by Free? No. on 2018/03/30 14:09
Prepare to pay to play.
Don’t download it
by Phantom739 on 2018/03/30 08:54
It been many years I’ve played this game and I want to say is these people are right. Do not download this game unless you’re planning to spend over a hundred dollars to win. It’s a pay to win game and everyone that is 10x higher level then you will most likely attack for research. They show now mercy once your shield is down. I been activating my shield for 24/7, until I don’t have it anymore. I stopped playing this game because of pay to win, it used to be fun until they screw it up. So that’s my review, Don’t download it. Goodbye and sorry my old guilds, I wish you luck.
Money Grubbing Programmers
by Achilz on 2018/03/29 12:18
I agree with the reviews that complain about the expense of playing this game. It can be fun to play but when you have to buy $99 gold packs just to stay in the game it is not worth it.
Loved it until I spent over $2000 to level up!
by Fore54ss on 2018/03/29 02:48
First off. I quit this game about a year ago. After realizing that, in order to keep up with the other guys I had to spend money. Lots of money! There were a few people that kept it simple and just built up, but keeping up with my team began to take a toll....on my wallet! A few drinks on a Friday night and I would purchase stuff that I “needed” and the next day I’d swear off buying. If you have great willpower then you might enjoy this game. I did, until I spent a mortgage payment and bounced a freaking check. I’m an idiot, no doubt. If you aren’t sure that you won’t be, then think twice. Honest review. Game was fun until it made me realize that I couldn’t control my spending on things that I “needed”. In a GAME!
Dont get it
by Vending lady 81 on 2018/03/28 13:27
This game is addicting its also highly expensive to pay for pacs you need... good packs that have everything cost $100 each time...you can get other packs for less but normally $20 and they are not enough to keep you up in up in the game... This game also is high on glitches and when you talk to support its the same generic response reboot... and i hope you like game crashes... you should expect these on the daily. So if you want to play go for it but expect lots of glitches and no help from support. Also, I hope you have deep pockets
Big spenders only
by Arya Artemis on 2018/03/27 00:16
If you are ready to spend hundreds of dollars every month to buy the virtual items needed to be relevant in this game, then please, sign up. If you are smarter than that I suggest you play elsewhere.
I used to love this game 😔
by Cspete on 2018/03/27 00:02
I have played this game since the very beginning. Took forever to build and grow but I loved logging on and chatting with my alliance friends and battling. But things are very different now.....A lot of people have already noticed that the game is not the same anymore. It really is all about the money. Before, you could gain items from battling or attacking monsters that would enable you to take the next step but now you can’t get any new buildings unless you spend at least $100 bucks everytime. I was good for two years..didn’t spend any real money....now I spent more than I would like to say 😒 all my friends have left the game already and I feel like I’m holding on because I invested....it’s time to leave....it’s not worth it anymore...
Waste now.
by Hondaeagles on 2018/03/26 19:47
Game used to be fun long time ago. Now everyday they want you to spend $99 dollars to get the newest thing.
Not for New Players
by WinterMagnolia on 2018/03/25 05:48
This game has been changed and made vastly harder in the last year. There is simple no way a new player could enter the game and compete unless an older player gives them an established “kingdom/castle”. Level 21 was as high as a gamer could achieve for the first several years which kept players able to compete on a more or less even level but now the highest level is over 151! Unless you have $1000 to spend in the first month of play you could never hope to be anything but a benchwarmer. There so many new troops and monsters etc that have been added to the game and vast amounts of research to pay for to be able to use these troops etc that it would take months to complete them. Huge quantities of players have left this game due to it becoming ridiculously out of control. All of the many gamers I knew and enjoyed, and who played this game for years are now gone. Bottom line... Skip this game and find one you’ll be able to compete in and enjoy. This isn’t it.
SoSo
by Guamanian sensation on 2018/03/24 21:22
This game use to be exciting!!! Now it’s more of a money dumping game that never ends. And for myself to continue to be vested from what I’ve spent it’s unfortunate 😬hopefully MZ can reconsider bringing the fun back...
Not as glorious as it used to be
by Andrewquartz on 2018/03/24 18:30
The game used to be not pay to win, I remember 9000 gold was A LOT back then now there are packs selling 99999999999999999999 gold that doesn't even do much besides let you buy a couple things, bsck then your lucky if you even had passed 1 million power, and had a level 21 stronghold, it was about grinding back then, now it's to see who spends the most money. Each pack each day costs more and more money, you miss a deal for 20 dollars? Now it's 50. Do not get it, it isn't worth it what so ever, I remember when this game was the top of the charts but MZ is entirely pay to win now, MZ if you'd like to contact the players and do a entire data base wipe you probably will return to formal glory
MONEY TRAP!!!
by Kevin Clay on 2018/03/24 10:19
Takes too much money to stay competitive. They are catering to the very, very wealthy. If you can't spend at least $3000 a month you won't win. 😡😡😡😡
Believe The Bad Reviews!
by JoeyBeets on 2018/03/23 19:58
Don’t download, don’t play. Too bad there aren’t any enterprising developers out there who could redevelop it the way it was back in the early “Kate as Athena” days when the game peaked.
Terrible money waster
by Drunstick on 2018/03/23 17:26
This game is THE definition of pay-to-win. Seriously. If you aren’t dumping $1000+ a month into it, you have no chance of being competitive. None. Find a different game.
You’re the one being played
by joeboy05 on 2018/03/22 06:47
Make no mistake, this is no “game.” It is an insidious system of extortion. It is morally bankrupt. It is not worthy of a single star. It is not worthy of your money. It is not worthy of the time it inevitably steals from your life. It is not worthy of you.
Used to be fun
by appleseeds11 on 2018/03/21 23:29
This used to be a fun game, but don't even bother trying it unless you're willing to LITERALLY spend at least $1k. Play at your own risk.
Just stop
by Lexib228 on 2018/03/21 12:58
This game was fun to play when I first started over two years ago. I had great online friends and we dominated in our kingdom. Then all the glitches began during the events and the insane costs for packs began to add up. Everyone began to slowly drop out of the game, empty accounts everywhere, and hardly anyone plays anymore. The upgrades just don't make sense at this point and the game is just plain garbage. Don't waste your time or money. There are better things you could be doing with your time.
Endless pit
by Sol€€€ on 2018/03/20 20:58
I agree with the comment about how fun it was. I’ve been playing for over 3 years now of straight login time. You can’t seem to go anywhere with out buying things. I would like to see the fun come back. Great game not enough fun anymore. Still playing because I’ve spent a lot on the game. And it still barely scratches the surface of play. Even at 1bttttt power I’m still well below others. Just don’t have the money to keep up. One of the only original players in my kingdom.
Ads
by RiZe JameZ on 2018/03/20 14:40
I would give the game a five star easily. If it wasn’t for the constant barrage of ads that has crashed my game multiple times in the past.
It's never enough
by Supergohan16 on 2018/03/19 23:25
God this game is so much fun. Only when your in an alliance though. Having all the people help you in you quest for domination. Though it's never enough i need to destroy more kingdoms.😈😈😈 mwahahaha! 😆
It’s time for games like this to die
by Kevins6n on 2018/03/19 12:54
I’ve play GOW for 18 months and the developers have turned it into a complete money grab. It’s an interesting marketing test to see how much a small group of people will pay to play a game and “beat” everyone else. You will spend at least $1000 a year if you truly want to win something, much more if you want to be the best. I play on and off, not everyday, and use 30 day peace shields to prevent midnight raids. But after setting my shield on 3 March, I was completely annihilated on the 4th?!? I’m done with glitches; that complete loss cost me hundreds of $$. Trillions of troops gone. My hero can’t be revived because the other player used ultimate execution and my player can’t be resurrected when that happens. That was the last straw, I’m contacting Apple for a refund and filing a complaint against Machine Zone and the seller. Stay away from this game, far away.
Horrible People

Seriously

Login daily (4-5x), and casino hasn’t allowed me access for almost a week now.
Latest update is the worst
by LucidHarbor on 2018/03/18 04:20
The latest round of updates are the world. Forcing them retroactively on existing kingdoms has increased discrepancies in play among players. Only those capable and desiring to spend hundreds of dollars can be even remotely decent now.
Awesome game
by Tbarr1 on 2018/03/17 23:01
Very,very addictive
Run far away
by Umzy32 on 2018/03/17 16:41
Unless you have an extra $400-$500 a month to spend, run far away from this quagmire. Everyone who started in this game has left. The greed is strong with MZ.
heavy heavy P2W
by RaptorRTK on 2018/03/16 21:11
Don’t even bother to play this game anymore.
Game has lost the fun
by I am Rue on 2018/03/14 22:28
Daily handouts instead of earning rewards & upgrades. Remain shielded 100% because big money players will crush you. Less monsters. Too many dead kingdoms and inactive players cluttering up the game. It’s turned into pure boredom.
Game of War
by Milodebb on 2018/03/14 20:42
You have to spend a lot of money to grow big enough to not get wiped out. Bigger players literally break smaller players who leave the game. I spent over $1,000 in just 5 months trying to get strong enough to defend myself. But the rules change constantly and unless you are playing 20 hours out of 24, and spending several hundred dollars every week or so, you will get burned and lose your hero. Not worth the time or $$$$$.
So much fun!
by Amyrj1 on 2018/03/14 09:24
I enjoy this game greatly. Yes sometimes money is spent but there are small packs at a nice price.
Not to bad.
by Zolkorrs on 2018/03/12 19:10

Never free
by Salesrep273 on 2018/03/11 23:25
This game was never free but several years ago you could play and be competitive spending $100 a month. Not any more.
Used to be so much fun
by N0t4g33k on 2018/03/11 20:21
There was stuff to learn, building to do... now it’s about how much spending you can do. Bummer.
Money pit
by sirdougie on 2018/03/11 02:50
I just recently quit playing this game after three years. No other game kept me playing as long as this one did. Mz pretty much killed all enjoyment to be had from this game. Kvk s were originally weekly, they recently had one which was the first kill event they had outside of their mega wonder kingdoms in many months. Anything u buy in a pack becomes obsolete almost immediately after u buy it. It used to be lower level players could score points in kill events by slaying monsters. Now nearly all of the monsters are super behemoth level and nearly impossible for a low level player to kill. Other players are not kidding when they say u can be instantly zeroed in one hit. Nowadays it don’t even take a rally. I’ve never before seen a game as immensely addictive as game of war become utterly boring. Mz has completely ruined this game. What finally did it in for me was the recent additions of demigods. They rigged it to where u must pay a hundred dollars to get your stronghold to 1101, just for the right to even research for the troops. Every hour they would send u free demigod resources , too bad u can’t actually use those without paying for the upgrade. My stronghold was at level 1100, my heroes are all at level 550, I had a troop count of 79.6 btttt troops with 2 mt monsters. Any empire with a star rating on their power could kill all those troops with a single hit. I spent a while just going around capping a few heroes I could find. None but millionaires could ever capture the wonder. This game is dead and I’ve finally moved on. I’ll never again play it. If you’ve never tried it, save your money. Don’t.
Veterans will remember
by bran g on 2018/03/08 06:53
I’ve been a MachineZone, inc. fan since the glory days of Jet Fighters, Original Gangsterz, and iMob. It’s sad to see that the simple, good ‘ol days are gone. I miss that old style of simple game play. Plus, the micro transactions have gone off the roof lately. It ruins the gameplay and team dynamic. Even if the old games were just “clicker games,” they had substance and a good player base. At least remaster one of those classic games and let the love for Machine Zone, inc. comeback.
Scam

Used to be a good game, now they make troops that ignore hospitals and will just be killed it ignored the design of the game! And what took YEARS TO ACHIEVE. ALSO I SPEND HI DREDS LITERALLY TO HAVE A SKULL DESIGN ON MY BASE AND THEY THEY TOOK IT ALL AWAY WHEN I LEVELED IT UP AGAIN.
Stay away!

This “game” is easily the worst game that I have ever tried to play. I say”tried” because you rarely get to actually play it. This is because if you aren’t strong you will get decimated and lose everything...so you stay under a shield until you get “stronger” or “caught up” right? WRONG! The problem is, you will never be “caught up” because they release new levels weekly and therefore you need to buy a “pack” every week just to keep caught up! EXPENSIVE! And if you buy one, you will regret it almost immediately. Another problem, and there are MANY, is that there are just way too many items in the game. Every new monster and new building requires some type of new item in order to unlock it, and different new items to upgrade it. The game is extremely bogged down with items into the thousands. Oh, and I must mention that resources are worthless, even though they give you some free ones often. Can you imagine having 1TTTTTT (yes, those “T’s” stand for Trillion) food but nothing worthwhile to spend it on? Thats the reality. It also takes a PhD to figure out how to play it, as there are so many different buildings and things to tap and hidden upgrades. Also, the game has many bugs that i wont get into because I am getting tired of wasting my time on this game. If this review keeps at least one person from downloading the game, it will have been worth it. Seriously folks, there are so many games that are more fun, less frustrating and cost less. Go look elsewhere. This is not what you want, I am sure of it.
Terrible
by I Hate Game Of War: Fire Age on 2018/03/06 01:25
I got the game, and it seemed so confusing!!! Clash of clans is a much better alternative. Well, there is the ‘cleverish’ coach, Athena, the goddess of wisdom, but she look modern-day, not Greek!! Anyways, she is not the goddess of wisdom anymore because she has the game. Plus, after 5 minutes, I couldn’t bear the thought of this stupid app wasting my storage, so I deleted it. If your wondering, it look like five minutes to install and I still found bugs. The coaching is so short that it doesn’t really teach the game to someone kinda young like me.

Greed
by Bbbgj on 2018/03/05 16:03
MZ greed had destroyed this game. I recently had an issue and contacted them they did absolutely nothing to help me. Unfortunately this game seems like it’s on its way out, almost like they are trying to drive people to quit.
Spent thousands

Don’t play this game
by Forever Addicted DGW on 2018/03/02 02:25
This game used to be tops, but now they are greedy. Updates everyday requiring you to buy packs at $99.00 USD. The $19.00 packs are filled with garbage that you already have...not worth it!
Fun.
by Aoadon on 2018/03/01 14:12
Really fun and addicting game. It got my super hooked into the game and doesn’t require you to spend money. A lot of fun while I’m bored at work or have nothing to do I play it. Kills the time really well and lots of fun.
Game of war
by Poppi1234 on 2018/03/01 05:52
I love this game, it takes a lot of time but it iOS Is fun watching your city grow as you do All the quests. You don't have to spend Any money unless you want to. The Members in your alliance are generous With helping you grow. My alliance is Wieland Revolutioners it is a great Group of people from Germany to New Zealand and many places in between. Ok, it is a year later and I have seen my alliance go to another kingdom due to a merge and now it is all about the money. $99 bucks for a bunch of stuff you will never use, resources that you used to have to farm for and try not to get attacked while doing it are now measured with million trillion trillion numbers that are ridicules. You have to click or poke till your fingers bleed. There is so much going on with reasearch trees and other kingdoms, new monsters, that if you don’t have a life you could just live here poking and training troops that can be wiped out in two seconds if you let your guard down by a guy who spends 5 grand a week. So I put on a 30 day shield and come back in 30 days to do it again, just to check out if anything has changed for the better, so far not.
Don't waste your time or your money
by Kaderith on 2018/02/28 22:46
This game has great potential however, the developers left a fatal flaw in their design programming. Unless you have the money to spend on extras in-game, you will be bullied relentlessly by high lvl players who have spent large sums of money on this game. Such much so, you will find you can't play the game! I've been relentlessly attacked over and over and over again, loosing all troops and resources so that I can't play the game. Don't waste your time. Games should be fun. And this game is just not fun. Mostly dead accounts, no active alliances or players anywhere to be found. The only active players are those who have spent thousands in this game and you will NEVER have a chance against them.

by Easy money 68 on 2018/02/28 07:48
The game is a joke now they took all the fun out of it completely. I played for over 4 years and put will over 4 thousand in it . My friends have put more then over 10 grand . As soon as you buy a pack to get caught up the next day they come out with something new again . You can’t keep up at all . Trust me don’t start playing it it’s a wast of your money now .
Game Of War. (CatLee)
by CathyLee21 on 2018/02/27 22:48
I love this game! It's so much fun to chat and become friends with people from all over the world! And the battles are awesome, along with killing monsters! It can cost you money if your not patient, but you can get by with spending little or none like me :) You have to try this game! This is a game of strategy, you actually have to think to play it unlike some others that have you just sit like a zombie with no mind at all! Just an update to my first review...I had played this game for a very, very long time! However I had to leave it due to all the money I had to spend in order to keep up with everyone else upgrading! It was a good game to meet great people on! But unless you have lots of money to throw away and lots of time to spend on this game I suggest you look somewhere else for entertainment!
Game Over
by Rstevers on 2018/02/27 15:26
The game has reached the end of its life. The days of FUN are over, now it’s only a game of SPENDING. Save your money, there are better ways, and cheaper, to enjoy yourself...
Prepare to spend $$$$$
by flipflopkc on 2018/02/26 20:13
I have played this game from the beginning. If you have deep pockets you’ll be fine, but be prepared to spend, and spend a lot if you want to be a top player. Otherwise find some other way to spend your money and have fun. I’m done wasting my time with this game and MZ.
over it
by Saryax0 on 2018/02/26 02:54
I’ve been playing this game for almost 6 years now. In the beginning it was fun but now I’m over it. There’s too much going on, it’s not about building and growing anymore, it’s all about pay to play. For the last almost 3 years, I haven’t let my shield down because its so easy to get smushed under the paying players. That really killed it for me because what’s the point in playing if you’re not really playing? Anyways it’s become quite boring despite MZ adding all these knew things... it just over complicated the game. I’m looking for something else to play. It’s sad because I see a lot of people leaving this game that have been there for years but they won’t change anything for us. It’s all about the money. Oh well. It’s just so boring now. I spent all this money on a game for “gold” for it to be obsolete. How disappointing. I finally get billions in gold and I can’t even use it. Deleting the app. Save yourself the trouble, play literally anything else.
Too expensive to play and keep up
by BRHutch76 on 2018/02/25 12:56
It was fun and may be fun for the people with deep pockets but not for the average person
To Expensive
by Doris1957 on 2018/02/25 02:10
When I started this game was fun. Now it’s all about the money..you can’t grow without spending. I have given up and decided to no longer play until MZ brings back the fun!!
Law Suit Pending..?

WARNING!!
by Bmyhousekey on 2018/02/24 03:11
Unfortunately, the company that owns this game, Machine Zone, has failed to listen to its loyal gamers and continues to excessively upgrade. They have made so many adjustments and paid changes that it has become near impossible to actively play without spending almost $100 a month. Please do not support this game.

Waste of money
by Don7777 on 2018/02/22 19:20
Have played for over four years. It was a game you couldn’t put down. Playing at all hours of the night or day. It was very addictive. Now the developer lost his mind and destroyed the basic concept of the game. It was a game of strategy with a focus on growing and fighting wars. Today it is a buy this, buy that every day. If you don’t spend money you can’t play. Other games of strategy have a basic game that never changes. You can play at any level and if you wanted to buy occasionally to speed up the process of growing so be it. Not with The Game of War. The game is buying to keep pace not playing the game to keep pace. They totally blew it. Have erased the game both from my tablet and phone.
No support
by Jarett H on 2018/02/22 16:48
Read all the 1 star reviews they are correct...game lag is horrible when it counts....get kicked all time when it counts....when mz has a problem it's the players fault and useless emails....support never ever has resolved an issue prepare to spend at least $50 a week just to play...and bump that to another $100 or $200 a month to actually attack someone.
Defects, lag & too many updates
by PJWSpanda on 2018/02/22 00:52
Feb 2018 Game of Wallets cause money and a credit card is required to click click click for hours to play for minutes. Free to those who have forever to click or just like the cat feature. 11 months gone and I think it’s time to spend on something useful or fun. MZ, updates and $100 packs is the cause of fewer players. But hey, I’m sure the other game developers appreciate it very much. Dec 2017 Updates are fast and furious but don’t resolve any issues even as simple as kingdom name on profile. No time to enjoy the game whether you pay to update or not. Those that pay destroy others which may be fun for some with a power complex but then the chance for ongoing play and competition were destroyed as well. Right now it’s about the people I’ve met, not the game.
MZ lies and steals
by Idontwantanickname4234 on 2018/02/21 02:10
MZ is very dishonest. You have to pay hundreds of dollars for packs just to stay ahead. However, the pack descriptions are very vague and you will not receive what you paid for. If you do pay for packs, use caution. Once you unpack and start training, your 30 day shield will drop 16 days early and you will get attacked, losing all the rss and troops you just trained. MZ has even resorted to requiring “screen shots to prove what it said. When you provide the screen shots backing your claims, they then talk down to you and tell you that they “understand how packs can be confusing to people who don't understand.” Very dishonest and money grabbing company.
Good to be rich.
by Larricus on 2018/02/20 23:02
My view is a lot like others'. If you have the money to play you'll find this game fun but even for someone like me who played for a year and a half it gets tiring to be continuously walked on by people with deeper pockets and bigger wallets then me. Oh and Machine Zone (the developers) won't care about you if you aren't a big spender. Just an FYI. I had an issue about a glitch id found that messes me up and they blew me off and sent me an email intended for someone else. I was really embarrassed for them.
Meh😒
by NaSims1 on 2017/09/02 02:29
Few years ago when I started playing the game, it was fun and exciting. The game gave you a purpose for logging on and staying up late. No matter what your power level was or your alliance ranking, you wanted to log on so you can build, grow and train your army to trod the battlefield field, attack your enemies and watch them Burn. Now, it's all about money. It is no longer a strategic game. It more about who can spend the most money to upgrade their "Stronghold" then brag about it. When you joined a good alliance you were able to work together and grow. NOW, the game forces you and the alliance to spend money to upgrade and the packages are expensive. Sometimes it give you nice discount on the packages, but who wants to spend their waking moments chasing down a deal for upgrades. While I do understand that you have to spend a little money and I was aware of that when I decided to play the game, but come on guys it's getting a little excessive. I find that more people are deciding to leave the game some of which are the founding members of there alliance and this is sad. Even though we write about the issues we have with the game, it seems that it will never change. Game of Wars will continue to do what is best for them and not their loyal gamers. It's sad to say but If you are new to the game and are thinking about starting to play, I would recommend spending your money on something else
game ruined by daily updates & MZ greed
by saltfork squatch on 2017/08/27 14:22
this used to be an incredibly fun game, but has taken a serious turn for the worse in the last few months...it is not a "FREE" game...sure, you can download it for free, but don't expect to be able to play...the math used makes absolutely zero sense...they don't even use real numbers to calculate anything...what exactly is 1KTT...lol...they use these unreal numbers to complete fuse and bait people to spend money...they put stuff in their packs, and never deliver the goods...it's always "bait & switch"...advertising things in packs that you never receive...I have been playing for almost 4 years and remember when they had their "GUARANTEED last VIP level ever at VIP 20"...that was a huge lie & marketing ploy...you can now obtain VIP 200...there have to be several laws that this company is violating by fraudulent advertising...the better business bureau & fair trade commission should be contacted by anyone who ever spent money, because MZ has robbed us all & continue to lie in their advertising...also, if you have an issue, don't expect any customer service to help...they do t actually have customer service...everything is an automated response & they never address the issues brought to their attention...I used to tell everyone to play this game, but now, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone...stay away from this game & anything else MachineZone has their name on
Don’t download!
by AlwaysLion Kingdon 366 on 2018/01/28 03:10
Two 1/2 years ago I downloaded this app. I was addicted right off the bat by the social aspect. It was fun and events gave you purpose each player had roles to fill. Slowly over time I realized that I could never catch up cause I could never afford it. The gap between competitive/active game play and those who had to farm for their progress widened quickly. I ended up spending $$$$ to keep up. I quit finally realizing that the amount of fun I was getting per $ was depleting. Well I popped in recently to look around and realized I can’t come back if I waned too without spending cash just to be able to fill a rally. That’s not even relevant anymore. Don’t waste time dead accounts everywhere and if you find yourself miraculously in a very active kingdom it’s gonna be full of mean spenders. Even when I played the game is the equivalent of taking a baseball bat to your neighbors brand new car and then telling them oh well get a new one. Cause these accounts represent REAL MONEY! Some cost the same price as a new house. The whole point of them game when played correctly is to attack, burn, capture the opponents hero and execute it. To do that you kill troops. Troops cost money to make and so when a player is zeroed that means all troops killed .... you have effectively destroyed thousands of dollars of property. FOR REAL!!
Ok, but...
by Bev BV on 2017/10/22 06:53
It’s a visually stunning and complex game, I’ll give Machine Zone that. Still, you cannot play this game and make any real progress without paying a LOT of money. There is no end to the amount of spending you will have to do in order to keep up with the game as the engineers continually add more things that you will feel compelled to obtain/achieve to maintain relevance and a sense of accomplishment. This is how they hook you. The constant gaming evolution would otherwise be a gamer’s dream-come-true, save for the fact that these things are NOT attainable for free or by “waiting it out.” You MUST spend money. And not just $20 here or there... I’m talking about hundreds or even thousands of dollars. To top of it all off, despite the exorbitant amount of revenue this game generates, there is still an inexcusable amount of glitches and lag within the game, as well as slow & incompetent customer service when problems arise. Bottom line, DON’T download this game unless you are prepared to drop loads of cash to “enjoy yourself.” Otherwise, don’t even bother. Take it from me; I have played this game for several years now, and I can attest to all of this from very personal (and financial) experience.
Spenders are leaving game
by ahalia on 2018/01/18 14:29
Do not let your kid on this game it’s very expensive, vulgar, violent, mean and cruel environment. Shame on Mz and Apple for Posting this game as good for for 9 year olds and up. It should be 18+ with deep pockets and hours a day to waste. Latest updates aren’t fun at all. you buy today, setup is tedious takes a few hours all so that tomorrow your obsolete due to a new feature release that you must buy. This Flash pace of new features required to advance in game make it a game you can’t enjoy unless you spending $300 min a week plus many hours daily. You could Spend $20 a week, at that point you pay to build but can’t really play. Spend $100 a week you can play but not much you can do after a day or two. So it’s spend deep, play same day or stay shielded. This used to be the best game ever! Most players stay in game out of addiction and hope game will be as fun as it once was. For many biggest draw and why they still play is the friends made on game. There is not a single kingdom with full full alliance not even enormous gg to fill a rally. More than half of accounts are abandoned. It’s a dead game with just a few super addicted players or Mz players. Money Zapped, time wasted. Some players lost their jobs , their marriage and even their homes over this game. Be safe, stay away
Wasted days
by FredBoeheim on 2017/12/29 02:57
Update- left the game! Never again will I play a game such as GOW! Apple should be ashamed for allowing this type of model to continue to exploit their customers. This game is addictive and a horrible waste of cash and time. The only way to progress to a point where you are victorious is to expend ridiculous amounts of cash. The game freezes, crashes at the most in opportune times and customer service is worthless. It's all about the Benjamin's. The game has so much potential, but through the greed of the developers and the domination of a few players with extremely deep pockets, what once was an excellent war game has devolved into an expensive version of FarmVille. Watching the timers click off as you wait patiently for skills that take upwards on 50 days to complete, unless you purchase gold to purchase speed ups, is as much fun as mowing the yard. I expect to join the cadre exiting the game and sell my acct soon. Excellent at first, blows now. 2017 update -things have gotten entirely out of control and impossible to follow. Items gifted or purchased are measured in TTTT, what the heck is a TTTT? How long is TTTT DAYS? High priced packs, the hundred dollar packs, typically go on sale within the week, to be replaced by a new and improved $99 pack. Truly sad. Seems like more and more players are bailing.
Getting worse by the day..
by C and K on 2017/12/28 17:08
Don’t waste your time. It’s all about the money now. This game used to be fun and I actually wanted to log in to play and chat with my alliance, but now new upgrades and crap Every. Other. Day. No joke...every other day you need to buy a pack of stuff just to keep up. It’s absolutely crazy. The first year I played I never even had to buy a pack to play and enjoy, but now if you don’t then you might as well not play because you will get ruined in minutes. 90% (over 100 people) of the people I used to play with have quit the game because no one can keep up with the amount of money needed keep buying upgrades. And then let’s say you do buy a pack...the next day the same pack is cheaper and it has all the same stuff. Why would I want to buy something when I can just wait and get it cheaper? But PLEASE...If you change NOTHING else...FIX THE INVENTORY/ITEMS LISTS!!!! EVERY time I click something it puts me back at the top of the list. When you have to scroll through hundreds of items that gets really old really fast. I hate doing anything because it takes so long. And it’s only in the past couple months it’s done that. Fix the crap that’s wrong with the game and chill on the the updates and maybe people would play again. 🙄😒
Just Nasty
by Fun... But... 😔 on 2017/10/22 21:20
MZ, just stop. Your advertisements are annoying, especially when you make us not only watch a video, but actually play the "game". The game you show does not even have good graphics, and it was probably copied from a primitive tower defense game. Needless to say, this "video" advertisement is nothing like GOW at all. However, I would argue that this tower defense game is more fun than the sht MZ gives us. I haven't even gotten into the real gameplay yet! We have people here, downloading the game because they like tower defense games, only to find that it is a game like Goodgame Empires. This is not okay. And the biggest problem is is that you might want to spend your life savings on this game, but not only do the packs come late (sometimes a week later), one hit from another player and boom! Your SH is gone. This game is an absolute disgrace and is only fun if you spend thousands (trust me, people have). This game was ruined by greedy developers. Edit: If I could, I would rate it 0 stars. I thought it was bad in December of 2016 but I was wrong. MZ comes out with new updates every day and you literally have to spend hundreds of dollars a week to catch up to not even the top players, but just the medium sized players. I am just done, and I am quitting forever.
Not a game at all
by Student of health on 2018/01/24 21:47
I played at high level at one point. Had 20K+ into my account. When I leveled my spending off to enjoy my killing spree, everyone seemed to catch me very quickly. Maybe 2 months later I went from the top castle in the realm to middle of the pack. Mind you spending still but at a reasonable level. Stopped playing because the additions came so fast and often it boggles the mind to keep up. Now after several years, I went back in the game for laughs not expecting my account to still be active. It actually was though. Now I log in and look at the packs and low and behold if MZ doesn’t give me all kinds of freebies each time. After a few months of this my account is middle road competitive with zero spending. I could even buy a pack for $15 and max out all attributes if I wanted to. Imagine if you had a castle worth tens of thousands and I could come along and burn you with $15!! Bottom line.. if you want to play, think again because MZ will screw you eventually and there are literally unbelievable amounts of stuff to the game and they will never stop adding cuz it’s only way to make money. That’s all it’s about not a game but MZ’s money Machine.
Over 2 years playing GOW
by Jaydomina on 2017/12/02 08:19
$$=win, No $$= no win, Glitches all the time(especially during major events) This due to the fact that their IT team does not understand networking or don't care enough to purchase correct number of servers and NOS ( Network Operating System) When you contact support, you get ridiculous answers. You can explain an issue clearly to GOW and there answer is always "checked your account and the numbers are good" (put clearly not) or "sorry we can't reverse the damage, but here are some free resources" (these resources don't even fix 5% of the damage caused by their glitches) Packs that offer free packs are not clearly labeled (you think your getting certain number of free packs, only to be disappointed with less than that) . GOW keeps adding new game changers but you spend hours trying to implement them and get a very short time to use or new stuff comes out before you can setup the stuff you just bought!! Basically you end up paying & setting up, but not playing!! Only thing I like is chatting on game, but I can do that on free chat apps. So if you like throwing money away and chatting...this game is for you!!👍
The Terminator
by TOPICEGUN28 on 2018/02/14 05:08
While the game is highly addictive and a good strategy game. Players make friendly contacts all over the world which makes the game more fun to play. Downsides to this game are lack of certain features that have been request by players to make the game easier to play have cause many players to be highly annoyed with programmers. Server issues have continued for months which cost players valuable time and lost of rss and troops, especially during KvKs also make players highly annoyed. Additional servers should be add to reduce lags and glitches. Key updates should be added to game. Programmers and developers should listen to players requests more carefully to enhances players needs and wants which will make the game better for all. Players are selling out of the game because the lack of concern game developers have for players requests for refunds due to lags and glitches which cost them $$$, instead the developers chose to freeze the players accts. and ban them from play. Developers should fix the problems rather then block users from playing. Overall a good game, but can be better.
Stay far away
by schwa298747 on 2018/01/07 15:49
Pathetic.. Today we are at sh850 with tier 43 troops... multiple new heroes each week. Read back a month or so and see people complaining about a new drop or two per week. It is now 3-4 new $100 drops per day. Tonight the game is unplayable because they aren’t even checking their ridiculous releases because they don’t have the time to.. such a waste that a great game that was the top grossing daily and weekly app, has gotten to this point. They don’t listen to their customer and if they spent 5 minutes talking with them they could easily turn it around and make millions per day again... stay away from final fantasy as well, same company different name. Looks like they are using their business model and spinning new apps trying to capture what they had. They could hand me the reins and within a day or two I could easily make this the #1 app again. That’s how much they care about the people that pay their salaries... so pathetic and very disappointing.. they ran the top players out of the game, and we are talking people that spent $1000’s per week.
Not for New Players
by WinterMagnolia on 2018/03/25 05:48
This game has been changed and made vastly harder in the last year. There is simple no way a new player could enter the game and compete unless an older player gives them an established “kingdom/castle”. Level 21 was as high as a gamer could achieve for the first several years which kept players able to compete on a more or less even level but now the highest level is over 151! Unless you have $1000 to spend in the first month of play you could never hope to be anything but a benchwarmer. There so many new troops and monsters etc that have been added to the game and vast amounts of research to pay for to be able to use these troops etc that it would take months to complete them. Huge quantities of players have left this game due to it becoming ridiculously out of control. All of the many gamers I knew and enjoyed, and who played this game for years are now gone. Bottom line... Skip this game and find one you’ll be able to compete in and enjoy. This isn’t it.
Glitchy money pit
by LadyAnna1 on 2017/10/13 16:43
The game used to be fun. I've played since it was released! The good old days. In July 2017 a stronghold 40 was max... now it at 305. In line with the speed of all new releases... at troop level 18 now from t4 . You HAVE to buy to play this game... you cannot play without buying a minimum of $500 a month at minimum. But if you the money it's fine right? WRONG.. for a software company the have horrible programmers that can't keep the game functioning as intended😆. For a YEAR now the game has been plagued with glitches so bad your purchases cannot even be used! Ticket after ticket to MZ support and no fix in sight. They don't care about their players or the gaming experience at all... it's all about making money and customer service is nonexistent. This company should be sued for their false advertisements and not providing the game capabilities PURCHASEd by players... myself included. Today I quit because I realize the game will never work properly and the company doesn't care,., as long as people keep buying they keep profiting
Just a money grab now
by HickeyBE on 2018/01/19 14:46
I’ve played GoW for a long while now. It was fun with some strategy and teamwork necessary back when it first came out and the highest Stronghold was level 21. Now they don’t hide the fact that they’re squeezing you to spend money to get anywhere in the game. The highest Stronghold level is about 1000 and it goes up every few weeks so you need to spend more money to maintain your dominance. There’s no way to catch up in the game. If you don’t spend money then you’re stuck with weak, low-level troops. You can get level 4 troops without the need for any extra items. Now they have level 46 troops available and there is now way to get anywhere close to them without spending money. I now have more locked buildings that require you to spend money than I have normal buildings. It’s perverse. The game has become no fun to play. It has become impossible to grow. You can’t complete new quests because you haven’t spent the money to get the items necessary to compete. You build a little and train some more only to get swatted like a bug by the bigger players. Do yourself a favor and don’t download this if you don’t want to feel the pressure to spend money every time you play. Literally every time you open the app, you are presented with the “Buy Gold Packages” page. And then again when you collect some of the meager gifts they throw at you. There is no way around their barrage of messages to spend money.
The Rich prey on the Weak
by MCAS77 on 2017/09/29 05:31
I've been playing for 4 months now. I feel it's time to leave a proper review. Please. Don't. Stop... do not download this app. 1) it's addictive... fun right? No! Like an illegal drug you will spend money, wanting to advance to become the biggest and baddest kingdom in the land. Well... packages to upgrade start at $4.99. You buy one thinking oh that's not bad. From there they hit you with $19, $59, $79 and oh yes, $99 packages to upgrade! Don't be like me and think oh I'll just buy the $19 packages... it adds up! At a certain level, you HAVE to pay to upgrade!!!! There are players in this game that PAY $100's of dollars to become level 125! Only the RICH can do it! Plus, to upgrade buildings, it takes multiple days sometimes it takes a billion trillion trillion days!!! I AM NOT LYING. They give you speed up Day tokens, you have to pay for them of course. So many have stopped playing. A lot of castles sitting around without peace shields. They can't afford it and neither can I! Shame on you MZ!!😡
Game is a scam
by Seannw1 on 2017/12/01 23:00
This game is literally a scam and I honestly can not believe that Apple allows this piece of garbage to infest the App Store. I played this game for a long time, at first it was a pretty good game and I made great friends and even met my future wife while playing. Over the last 12-18 months the game has turned into a scam. Mz releases 1-3 new expensive updates a day and on some of these updates you will literally lose everything if you don’t cough up $99 the second it’s released. There isn’t any strategy in this game anymore, it’s all about who is willing to spend more. I would give this game no stars if apple would let me. I honestly don’t know why Apple hasn’t banned this company. Also don’t bother to play Mobil strike or final fantasy because they are the same as this game, just rebranded and skinned. They are so hated as a company that they can’t even use the same name in all of there games. They have to change it to Deceive people. You have been warned, steer clear of this game.
The game has been destroyed by MZ
by FastJames65 on 2018/02/14 22:45
I read these reviews and ask myself why should I make comments when everything I would write is consistently stated in everyone else reviews. I paid my dues to build and was enjoying the game until it became a money pit with no chance of being able to play because MZ is constantly releasing new stuff too quickly, i.e. MORE MONEY. By the time you get up to speed everything you have just purchased is obsolete because of new releases. Customer service is terrible also. If you write a ticket they use an auto read to screen for key words and then you get a response that has nothing to do with your issue. But they always thank you “warrior”. There is no good reason to get started in this game unless you have several thousand US dollars to throw away and you don’t care. Whatever you do don’t buy into this game. It has been destroyed by MZ because of greed and a complete lack of regard to customer loyalty. I hope they go broke, Boycott MZ today!
GOW Player Very addictive!
by Gale J on 2017/11/27 22:32
Great game but addictive! Love the game but something's cost to much. Plus somethings like the leaders has to much power over. No one should have the power to turn my alerts off from a main button but not change how I have those alerts set! Please take that away bc we all spend money sometimes so why play with people like that. Please take that button away from there! Please stop changing so much money for this game. I rather play and not spend any money now. Plus these mega wars that split alliances up or scatter them to other places is not that great of a feeling. Then someone else takes your Alliance over and some players are blocked from chat or they have their very on chat line but a person can rack up all kinds of points for the alliance and no one in that alliance ever talk to you. I just want to attack my own cities!
Used to be fun.....😪😪
by Liddylu on 2017/12/14 13:57
I started playing this game when it first came out. I was an R5 in one of the top alliances in the top kingdom (386). We couldn't wait for new updates and the price to pay was cheap. It was all about strategy and getting to know your kingdom. Then all of a sudden you had to spend $ to play,,, lots of money. Then even more money. I remember a time years ago I would stay up all night to rally people. We had a great time. Then it became ridiculous with new updates. I saw people that were maxed out, zeroed within hours of a new update. It was no longer about strategy. Cores used to be customizable for defense and attackers. Now it's all about the gear you buy. Hero level 550. Is crazy. I miss when SH were only level 21. That was when the game was actually fun. Don't download this game. You will lose your house and your wife/husband after the money you spend just to keep up. MZ took a fun game and ruined it. Clash Royale is much more fun and inexpensive.
Mz killed this beautiful game
by Nickname 1324579 on 2018/01/23 00:28
I started playing this game back in 2013 it was an amazing game of course it was really hard to grow and have real fun but you could actually do it. You could get far enough by spending a few dollars and have fun new features were really hard to get but also they didn’t add new features every day but every 2-3 weeks people could actually enjoy the features they pay for for quite some time. The game was still fair enough in 2016 but in 2017 mz got greedy and started adding new stuff more occasionally every 2 days new stuff then by a few more later they started adding new stuff every single day by the end of 2017 the we’re adding more than one stuff every day. That was crazy the game started using numbers that I never heard of before like10TTTT. But overall at the beginning the game was amazing I used to spend hours playing and never get bored of it, I was addicted to it. Thanks mz for making me quit my only addiction. Surdo503
over it
by Saryax0 on 2018/02/26 02:54
I’ve been playing this game for almost 6 years now. In the beginning it was fun but now I’m over it. There’s too much going on, it’s not about building and growing anymore, it’s all about pay to play. For the last almost 3 years, I haven’t let my shield down because its so easy to get smushed under the paying players. That really killed it for me because what’s the point in playing if you’re not really playing? Anyways it’s become quite boring despite MZ adding all these knew things... it just over complicated the game. I’m looking for something else to play. It’s sad because I see a lot of people leaving this game that have been there for years but they won’t change anything for us. It’s all about the money. Oh well. It’s just so boring now. I spent all this money on a game for “gold” for it to be obsolete. How disappointing. I finally get billions in gold and I can’t even use it. Deleting the app. Save yourself the trouble, play literally anything else.
MZ has gone insane
by Decadave on 2017/08/08 20:18
I started playing GoW a while ago, and the developer used to have updates every week or two. You had time to get caught up on all of the new research/building levels/troops between updates. Additionally, the updates were modest in how much improvement they gave to a player. If you didn't purchase a new pack, it wouldn't mean that you were irrelevant...it just meant that you weren't going to win the big battles. Over the last month, MZ has literally been offering new releases every day. If you want to be a strong player, you have to spend money daily. These new releases make players stronger by an order of magnitude. You can go from being the ruler of your kingdom, to a player that has all of his troops killed by a single attack two days later, if you don't buy new packs. MZ is running people out of this game at an incredible pace, because they can't afford to pay. It was a fun game, but now it just costs too much.
MZ is a joke
by BraveTala on 2017/12/06 03:24
When I start playing this game it was soooo much fun. Now like the others have said it has gone down hill in the last few months. If you have a problem in the game customer service doesn’t care. All mz cares about is the all mighty dollars the upgrades for your stronghold have gotten WAY out of hand ever single day there are more upgrades and things going on. If you don’t spend you might as well not play because you won’t last long. The people that I started play with a few years ago have almost all quit. A lot of the alliances are dead and not too many of the even rally anymore. You can be 300KTTTT and be rallied and be zero’d in one hit. But you’d think that MZ would get a clue. But nope. The only reason I’m still playing is because I have sunk soooooo much money into I can’t stand giving up and throwing so much money away. MZ doesn’t care about the customers at all they care a bout is how much money the can make off of you. Stay way
Game of war
by Poppi1234 on 2018/03/01 05:52
I love this game, it takes a lot of time but it iOS Is fun watching your city grow as you do All the quests. You don't have to spend Any money unless you want to. The Members in your alliance are generous With helping you grow. My alliance is Wieland Revolutioners it is a great Group of people from Germany to New Zealand and many places in between. Ok, it is a year later and I have seen my alliance go to another kingdom due to a merge and now it is all about the money. $99 bucks for a bunch of stuff you will never use, resources that you used to have to farm for and try not to get attacked while doing it are now measured with million trillion trillion numbers that are ridicules. You have to click or poke till your fingers bleed. There is so much going on with reasearch trees and other kingdoms, new monsters, that if you don’t have a life you could just live here poking and training troops that can be wiped out in two seconds if you let your guard down by a guy who spends 5 grand a week. So I put on a 30 day shield and come back in 30 days to do it again, just to check out if anything has changed for the better, so far not.
Extreme spending required to play
by NTJedi on 2017/08/09 04:40
A growing greed is the only focus of these developers. There's literally "zero" creativity with game updates and features... as every single one requires big spending and only adds increased attack types or defense types to your stats. Lots of dead features like forging items, treasure maps and killing monsters give old worthless rewards... VERY BORING. Game events also are old worthless rewards. You literally have all troops die with a single enemy attack even if you've spent hundreds in the game! Advertisements to buy packs spam your game mail too! LOTS of players spreading the news to avoid any games from Machine Zone such as Final Fantasy because the developers don't bring new ways of gaming fun, they only add higher stats costing more money. The only people still playing are the ones who spent lots of money in the game... and MZ pushing them away with the constant new updates needing more money from gamers.
Used to be fun
by CBKBGB on 2017/10/29 22:21
This game WAS fun and exciting till about 8months ago when the game developers decided to remove all strategic gameplay and make it all about how much and how fast you can spend. ‘Free to play’ is long gone, just a different version of FarmVille. Actual gameplay requires weekly, if not daily, in-app purchases. I’ve been back and forth with MZ customer service, which is a joke, and they pretty much confirmed this. Big shame, was an exciting fun game. Logging in these days is just to reload shields to protect the investment I already made into this game. I’ll have to let it go at some point since MZ doesn’t care about their loyal players that helped get them to where they are now with their game platform. Stay away from this game unless you have extra money that you really don’t want because 1 pack purchase will only last 48hours max. Should also note, images listed here are nothing like the actual game graphics
NO SUPPORT FOR PAYING PLAYERS!
by chazbzmom on 2018/01/25 19:54
I spend anywhere between $150 to $500 a month to play this game and remain competitive. I have to play a minimum of 5 hours after making a $20-$30 purchase in order to get everything up to date. No playing, just tapping upgrades & organizing purchased gear. Just 4 months ago I could keep it under $100 per month and stay current. It was fun. Now it’s too expensive. The updates are SEVERAL times per DAY, and each and every update is $. With the smallest pack at $20. 2 weeks ago, and one day, I had a glitch occur on my account. I had just spent $45 to get caught up and poof, my hero got stuck and unusable, so I cannot play. Now I am soooooo far behind, the error is “still being investigated” as of today & there is absolutely NO recourse on their end. No offer to provide any sort of compensation in order to make my account up to date, as it was just ONE hour before the glitch shut it down.
Think twice
by MZ needs professional help on 2017/08/28 07:44
Before installing Game of War. Once a fun game, it's now nothing more then a ticking time bomb. The summer of 2017 has brought about endless updates, that are almost daily.(Once monthly, then biweekly then weekly in the days of yore.) Miss even one and you won't enjoy the results. Unless you just won the lottery to spend ridiculous amounts of money, you won't be able to play for long. MZ has lost their mind and decided to see just how much cash they can squeeze from this cow before it becomes their next burger combo. The thing about daily updates are all the bugs introduced that often go unfixed. This includes the game packs you can purchase. Don't believe what the pack offer reads, it's a crap(50/50) shoot if you'll actually get what's advertised. Forget about customer service, its automated and they seem to delight in ignoring you every way possible. Except your money, they'll gladly take all of that.

by MakivilGOST on 2017/10/23 03:42
I’ve been playing this game for over 3 years. It was an excellent game at first. I took 3 years to build my city and troops, and witching less than 10 seconds it was all wiped away because I refuse to spend on another $20-$99 for another pack. Now I only log on to say hello to friends from my alliance to say hello. Besides, you can spend $99 today and tomorrow you can get a similar pack for $20 but the pack is now ancient after they update the game regularly and when they do they add another feature that forces you to spend more money or become obsolete as a player. I actually do not mind spending a few dollars for packs but this is becoming ridiculous. I’m too far in to quit but I rather become obsolete than give MZ another dime. I’ll probably spend $20 every six months to stay obsolete but I will never spend $20-$40 a week to stay current. I hope MZ is reading this because you just lost another loyal customer.
Not free anymore
by Jennifer P 1979 on 2017/10/29 23:25
I have been playing for 3 years and in the last few months MZ has been dropping new releases almost on a daily basis. Our kvks are barely once a month. They tend to bring a new release prior to a kvk without the ability to utilize the release. I was a rally leader and have a trap. As of April 28, 2017, hero 81-85 was released along with 4 new gem sets, new core and a defense gear. All within days of each other. We barely had the chance to adjust with t6s and the new VIP and now pretty much everyone is quitting and soon I will be one of them. I just wish MZ would stop with the releases and bring back the weekly kvks and give everyone time to adjust. We don't need any more releases for at least a year. Since August the hero and VIP has more than doubled along with the buildings. You need to be able to afford this game to play now as you need to be maxed just to play. It is no longer fun anymore. Do not download the game.
Lag issues effects ability to play
by RCS001 on 2017/12/01 04:54
Great game but now it is very expensive to keep up with. If you don’t pay for the way too frequent upgrades, you are basically playing a high dollar FarmVille... forget trying to take the Wonder or winning an attack on another city. Severe server lag and constant crashing is a daily event and the extremely poor response from customer service, speaking to you like you are an idiot is aggravating at best. The constant insistence that the problems are because of your device or internet connection instead of truthfully stating that their lack of QC before releasing the way too many upgrades/updates and poor server bandwidth will surely disappoint you. If they fix this, it is excellent game play and will be an absolutely excellent game. Please fix these issues and let us get back to the enjoyment from 3 years ago MZ😊
Don’t waste your time
by Sosa916 on 2017/09/28 20:06
I started playing this game 5 years ago with my son and was fun he social aspect. The battles. And slow growth. It took them 3.5 years too give us T5’s Troops and now we have T13’s with different gear dropping daily and no time to even learn new troops, new gear. It is all about greed now more then letting your loyal gamers have fun and battle. Everything has gotten out of hand so much do that you can a ridiculous amount of troops which take money and resources to build gone in just 1 attack. It’s sad to say after I was zeroed my son told me it’s time to quit. And as hard as it is I must say I have to agree with him. It has become To expensive to enjoy or even try.. I miss the good old days. So with a heavy heart of saying goodbye to dear friends it’s time to walk away.. and messaging machine Sind dies nothing as they don’t care and give generic responses.. signing off ArcanumLove
It’s time for games like this to die
by Kevins6n on 2018/03/19 12:54
I’ve play GOW for 18 months and the developers have turned it into a complete money grab. It’s an interesting marketing test to see how much a small group of people will pay to play a game and “beat” everyone else. You will spend at least $1000 a year if you truly want to win something, much more if you want to be the best. I play on and off, not everyday, and use 30 day peace shields to prevent midnight raids. But after setting my shield on 3 March, I was completely annihilated on the 4th?!? I’m done with glitches; that complete loss cost me hundreds of $$. Trillions of troops gone. My hero can’t be revived because the other player used ultimate execution and my player can’t be resurrected when that happens. That was the last straw, I’m contacting Apple for a refund and filing a complaint against Machine Zone and the seller. Stay away from this game, far away.
Game Of War. (CatLee)
by CathyLee21 on 2018/02/27 22:48
I love this game! It's so much fun to chat and become friends with people from all over the world! And the battles are awesome, along with killing monsters! It can cost you money if your not patient, but you can get by with spending little or none like me :) You have to try this game! This is a game of strategy, you actually have to think to play it unlike some others that have you just sit like a zombie with no mind at all! Just an update to my first review...I had played this game for a very, very long time! However I had to leave it due to all the money I had to spend in order to keep up with everyone else upgrading! It was a good game to meet great people on! But unless you have lots of money to throw away and lots of time to spend on this game I suggest you look somewhere else for entertainment!
GoW-the biggest $$$$$ trap ever
by DiGeister64 on 2017/08/05 15:11
I played GoW for 2 years, grew with the game, took over a clan as leader... now I avoid this game like the plague it is. To keep from having others attack you and take everything from your supplies to your hero, you'll need to stay shielded. To stay shielded you'll need shields, and they cost. You can earn some, but not enough to stay safe. If you don't and just get zeroed, you'll likely be talked to by your leader about not bringing the attention to the hive, or kicked out of the clan to survive alone. It's all about the money. Money in exchange for the latest research and skills ladder they build (expect these regularly), money for shields, money for... everything. One of my players racked up $10,000 in debt in one year on this game, and he was a modest spender. If you're not rich, this isn't the game for you. I had to go cold turkey and just walk away.
Can't succeed at this game without going broke.
by :()$&@ on 2017/09/16 17:45
I used to play years ago and did great and belong to a top team. I was a level four and enjoyed playing. Than my IPad broke. I recently got a new one and downloaded the game and my profile. I had thousands of chests and upgrades from my city just hanging out. Everything was gone so I put up a week long shield and used all the stuff that had accumulated to build and upgrade for the week. Right when my shield expired I was attacked, destroyed and my hero taken. There are just to many massive players who spend tons of money, to accomplish anything in this game. You work all hard at it and ultimately become a farm for bigger fish. There should be some kind of levels or something, how do you defend when you're a level 18 city and a level 80 comes along and wipes the floor with you? No fun, not worth the time...
A big thumbs down
by Ts246 on 2017/11/30 21:46
MZ hasn’t even attempted to fix this game, all they care about is taking your money and giving you crap in return. Customer support, except for canned messages, is non existent. I wish there was a lower rating. MZ has been more concerned with making big money, than with the product they put out. They continuously add items for you to buy that make the items you just bought obsolete. The program is poorly written, dumps the players many times every day and the lag time is terrible. When you go to battle you get dumped or the game freezes and when you get back, you have been defeated and lose much of your investment. Knowing what I know now, I wish I had never downloaded this game. Ps: they tell you it's free but the only thing that's free is downloading the game, after that they have it set up so you must spend hundreds of $$ to play.
Might as well just flush $$$$$$$ down the toilet…….
by Dirtè on 2017/08/06 19:29
Unless you do nothing but spend money in this game, you are destined to lose. Sometimes MZ (the developers) will drop your shield while you’re sleeping, and in turn lose all your troops/power. Played for a year, spent around $1200……last night they must’ve dropped my shield…..woke up completely dead (yet somehow my shield was still active; Hmmmm - money making scheme?) Basically, last night I lost $1200 with nothing to show. With heavy hitters spending $50k+++++ on it, just expect to spend money and be killed. If I’d known this from the start, never would have downloaded it (don’t even get me started on the CONSTANT updates they do, so you’re forced to spend more money to keep up). Sooooo, DO NOT DOWNLOAD/PLAY this game…..you will hate yourself for it later on, and will have a much lower figure on your bank statement.
Always was pay to win
by hate family guy on 2017/09/09 18:05
To all the people saying it used to be play to win...it's always been pay to win. If you've been playing long enough you'd know that back in the day (at least when I first spent money) it would cost at least $1,000 to get tier 4 troops and good gear. The cost hasn't changed other than if you wait a week you can max out your account for like $30. The people in your alliance make it fun. Want to destroy people? Spend $1,000 or more a month, want to trap, spend $200 a month. Research isn't as important anymore as good gear and a ton of troops are. It used to be that with the right research you would ruin the day for the biggest spenders. Now you have to max research, current gear and more troops than the galaxy has particles
Incredible Masterpiece
by Mikethenike48 on 2017/12/04 23:27
I have been playing for two years and whenever I pick up my phone I am drawn to this app. It always has something new to offer. Had some problems learning at first but now I am a little better. I am not gonna lie, the more you spend, the better you will get faster, but if your in an alliance that can not take itself way to seriously and care about the people inside it, you will have a lot of fun. You have to be active. This is not something you put down for five days and cone back to. People are depending on you to do your part so millennials and x'er's don't apply😀! Just kidding.
Extremely frustrating
by Fhzdjncxxh on 2017/10/31 03:04
I started this game back when a level 21 stronghold was the best anyone had, and that's when this game was the most fun. You didn't have to spend a ton of money to actually make progress. Now it's 2017 the day before Halloween and the stronghold level is 300 and the game has lost everything that made it fun. Don't get me wrong I'm willing to spend a little money here and there but it's absolutely ridiculous at this point, don't even bother with this game. Also almost everyone is afraid to drop their shield because they'll get zeroed by someone who spent more money then they did, and no one wants to lose their investments hence the shielding. MZ if your reading this which I doubt, just stop now no more update designed to take people's money, we cant stand it anymore.
Prepare to be a victim, unless your rich...
by jlucs_96 on 2018/01/20 14:32
I played this game for 3 years, started when building cap was 21. Now we’re at 950 I believe, and the only way to stay up on it is to drop(if your lucky) is a 100 a week. If you wait till that cap drops to a 20$ pack, they don’t include one of the umpteen hundred ridiculous items you need to upgrade each type of building. So in the end, your always stuck behind. My main account is sitting out 1.37kt gold, and troops look more like 247 mmmttttttt% boosts and what not. Developers have lost site of wha made this game fun. If I were you I’d move on to something else. I’ve personally gone to Kingdoms of Heckfire. Yea..it still has a shop and what not, but a 5 dollar pack here and there is more then enough to help you stay on top of it, but at the same time completely not necessary. Move along, nothing to see here.
Don't download...
by Basiaczek on 2017/09/13 13:27
I'm an uber rational, careful spender. Peaceful woman. New mother. Serial budgeter (with a fat account, still, frugal...). Seriously. If somebody told me the amount of money I'd spend on GOW a year ago, I would never believe. In two months I had spent four figures and then - in a split second of rational thinking - I asked MZ to kill my account rather than sell it or give it away. That game is super fun, terribly addictive and unbelievably expensive. You'll likely meet great people who you'll fall in love with. You will think about this game ALL THE TIME. You will check every hour if there's a rally going on to join in and have fun... And you'll spend your kids college fund... I left in May and I still have an urge to log in and start a new account just to check on my alliance mates and see where they are. Anyone here from Calandria? Any updates? Sheesh...
Constant charge issues!
by IrritatedConsumer on 2017/08/13 07:28
I enjoy playing the game but yes MZ is constantly coming up with high dollar packs required to progress through the game then when you buy packs you better watch your charges very closely. Itunes or MZ seems to wait days before charging your account and other times it's charged immediately! So when you buy a pack suddenly you'll find charges for 2 packs and if you don't watch your account closely you won't notice it..even after contacting support and giving them the dates and charges to my account they continue to tell me it's a delay charge for up to 10 days! Sometimes it is delayed but I watched every charge closely and I was being double charged on certain instances. I say watch your account closely. Good luck!
Money pit
by Jblair41 on 2017/08/10 13:09
Gow is a great game, or at least it used to be before it turned into a money pit. To stay competitive and up to date, takes at least $100 a week. You used to be able to play at a decent level without having to spend at all, but now in order to do almost anything worth your time, you have to be completely up to date. If you have not started playing, DON'T. If you haven't spent money yet, Delete the app now before you are lured into MZ's trap. There are far to many variations of this game from other developers to warrant spending anything on this game, unless you are already hooked and invested in this game, as many of us who have been playing for a very long time are.
I used to love this game 😔
by Cspete on 2018/03/27 00:02
I have played this game since the very beginning. Took forever to build and grow but I loved logging on and chatting with my alliance friends and battling. But things are very different now.....A lot of people have already noticed that the game is not the same anymore. It really is all about the money. Before, you could gain items from battling or attacking monsters that would enable you to take the next step but now you can’t get any new buildings unless you spend at least $100 bucks everytime. I was good for two years..didn’t spend any real money....now I spent more than I would like to say 😒 all my friends have left the game already and I feel like I’m holding on because I invested....it’s time to leave....it’s not worth it anymore...
This game is a scam
by Bahzad123456 on 2017/10/19 15:54
This game is a complete scam, other than taking your money they will not care about anything. The only good thing is the friends you make in this game. My advice is, don’t download this game, but if you do, don’t ever buy anything they offer, just stay in there and make friends. Logical issues: 1 - while this game is a money hole for mz, don’t expect to just pay a one time fee, you are expected to spend an average of $500 per day just to be able to play. 2- packs that are being sold don’t even make sense, you would have everything in a pack and just as in bedazzled you will be missing something all the time too. 3 - as soon as you touch that buy button your money is gone, no refunds and mz won’t care. 4 - what would be sold for $1000 in any given day, it will be $10 the next day. Technical issues: 1 - game crashes, freezes all the time 2 - chat freezes all the time 3 - game is slow as hell 4 - game does crazy things for no reason 5 - there is no technical support, whatever you tell them, they will still give you no answer. Who am I? I have played this game for over a year, one of the top and was famous in the game, my game name is deepimp4ct, you can ask around.
DO NOT PLAY
by 38:'k&/!2 on 2017/08/08 19:36
I started the game near its beginning. It was the first of its kind, it was such a fun game to play. It's always been pay to play, but in the beginning you could become powerful without paying... just took time. Now, the game has made a complete 180. Resource tiles are useless now because the requirements to upgrade buildings or do research and train troops are outrageous. For example, a tile may have a few million resources on it, but to train a good amount of troops, you will need at least 5TT resources... 5 Trillion Trillion resources... And now, they have new research that cannot be completed without buying... IT IS LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO ADVANCE IN THESE NEW RESEARCHES FOR TROOPS WITHOUT BUYING BECAUSE THE REQUIREMENTS ARE ONLY FOUND IN PACKS. People spend 1,000s of dollars per week to be good. People have dropped 100k's and even a million dollars to be the best. That is unbelievable. The statistics are insane now, with people having gear that gives them BT% attack... unbelievable. And not to mention terrible graphics and game lag. The only thing good about the game is the social aspect. Have made some great friends throughout my time playing . My advice... unless you want to spend your hard-earned money on a digital game, DO NOT DOWNLOAD

Too many notifications, boring, scams.
by Nobody I'm Trolling Ha Ha on 2018/04/20 21:10
At first it was fun and exciting, but after awhile it was just bland and horrible. It was the same stuff over and over again. Sure there are “updates” but they always do minor bug fixes and small changes. I turned my notifications off for this game because of the crazy notifications. My castle was building so I wanted my another game called War Dragons and I was in the middle of a very important battle that determined if my team won or not and as usual Game Of War gives me three notifications of the exact thing back to back to back. Sometimes it even gives you four notifications. I even paid 12 dollars on this game. What a waste. The transaction didn’t even work, it didn’t give me the stuff I PAID FOR. Do not buy this game, you will hate it. Trust me. Scams everywhere.
No longer a good game
by Momdinger on 2018/04/20 12:40
This used to be the best game out there and at one time I would have given it 5plus stars. It is really the only game I have ever spent money on and thought it was well worth it. I enjoyed loyal friends from all over the world and had great conversations while taking on other alliances. It was so much fun! But there is never a point where the money spent was enough for the developers. MZ made the game bigger and bulkier with this stupid “god” thing and quite frankly annoying. It takes forever to load. The costs of things moved from comprehensible to a confusing, annoying, not worth the time and effort to figure out monstrosity. It is a nightmare mess. Longtime Alliance members and friends left in droves. Even those who had spent thousands of dollars on the game. If you are new, do not waste your time or money on this current monstrosity. It is truly awful. What a shame.
Greedy
by machine no on 2018/04/20 09:29
If it is made by MZ machine zone don’t even try it. Bad servers and do not care for their customers. Will change the game so no matter what you are zeroed and have to start over. Take your car drive down the highway and throw it out the window far better reward. If could give no zeroes I would.
$$$
by AudaciouslyMe on 2018/04/19 00:26
When I first started playing in 2013 it was a great game. You could pay for an edge but you didn’t have to use money to stay competitive. Now it’s basically impossible to play without paying. There’s no point now unless you’re willing to sink thousands of dollars into the game. And it’s not worth that.
Not worth the money loss
by MZ does not care about you on 2018/04/17 16:38
Great concept. MZ got way to greedy and has made the game unattractive
MZ totally destroyed the game
by Galsitan on 2018/04/16 03:58
There are insane updates every week that makes it crazy and really hard to keep up unless you spend a lot of money. It use to be a great and fun game.
To big, to slow and no help
by McBuce on 2018/04/14 15:03
The game used to be fun, it’s gotten to big and to slow. Only the people who are willing to spend money advance and are strong enough to win battles. I can’t restore wall defenses and get VIP help on my research. Know body from the developer offered help to fix it when I sent a message.
Money pit
by purpleraven87 on 2018/04/13 14:57
You can’t do anything without paying for things. And they just charge me $100 when I didn’t even want anything. It was fun at first but know it 2 much. You buy $100 packages to level up your buildings.
Money pit
by Jsew222 on 2018/04/13 05:20
Such a sucky game. Especially now. They have a cool concept but they’re greedy and completely ruined it almost a year ago.
Used to be fun
by Perse55 on 2018/04/11 06:45
Can’t believe I wasted my money and time.
Takes $$ to be productive
by JoCray32988 on 2018/04/11 01:09
If you can do about $1000 a month into the game, and have several hours to upgrade. An also enjoy 12 hours of actually game play a week. This is the game for you, if not...I suggest keep looking. Even a $1000 a month is cutting it short with this game.
Game of War
by beerblaster on 2018/04/10 21:39
Machine Zone ruined this game through pure greed ! Shame on them ! Waste of time and money.
Tommy2gunZz
by Tommy2gunZz on 2018/04/10 15:20
I loved this game when I first started a few years back. It was fun and had meaning. Yeah you spent a little money, but it was worth the fun to build up your army and stronghold and make friends in your alliance. Now the game is all about the Company’s greed and not the gamer. They took a fun challenging game and turned it into a pay to play game that requires no skill if you have $$$$. Sad.
I would give it no stars if I could
by JermG79 on 2018/04/09 01:03
Used to be great. Everything’s $100 now. Even the people seem to have gotten more annoying. Also no support from MZ to correct game flaws.
Don't waste your money
by nabori19 on 2018/04/08 11:54
This game used to be fun and exciting but the developers greed and craziness have made this game an expensive one and crazy. They keep adding stuff so people are forced to buy (well, stupid people) and honestly, I go to my account and I don't get it anymore. Game of War is sort of like a ghost town where not even the kingdom chat is very active because people got disappointed and have move on to other games. Lots of people complained to the developers when they firsts started with their madness but they didn't listen and this is why a lot of people quit playing. Too bad MZ got so greedy cause I missed the game...the old game! 😥
Used to be:
by Vegas Bobbie on 2018/04/08 04:51
This game was fun when I got started. Now..... Unless you invest large sums of money to keep up with those that can wipe out your entire army. The game is no longer fun or challenging. Also when you meet all the requirements or upgrades. The developer adds more levels to achieve at a $$$$$.
Waste of time and money
by Veeri on 2018/04/08 00:58
This game is no good. All the mini app purchase packs are expensive and do not get you anywhere. 3 months into the game your kingdom will be ported to ancient kingdoms and then you are purchasing pack after pack just to keep up. But the power up is meaningless. Few years ago it was a good game. But not anymore. Apple should monitor the tactics of MZ. They do not give what they promise in the packs and they alwAys keep changing their top most level.
Crap
by swimmer08 on 2018/04/06 21:16
Game crashes a lot and requires lots of money for nothing. Don’t bother downloading this crap app.
Addictive lol 👎 update 😁
by Pshtr on 2018/04/05 16:51
Like the game a lot. Gets expensive though. But game play is really good, hard to get bored. Stay shielded 😄 UPDATE: quit months ago 😂. They changed gameplay so much. It’s not even fun anymore, always having to upgrade this, train that. Hardly time to actually play because they added stuff so fast to get you to spend more faster. huge money grab now, even more so than before. There’s no strategy anymore, spend the most the fastest you’re good. PLZ save your money.
Shut this app down
by GREEDY GOW on 2018/04/05 02:17
Played the first week it came out. Played for 4 years and eventually realized I had spent thousands of dollars on a it. I was addicted. I loved the people I played with and even was in the top tier alliance in my kingdom, the original Ninjas of Gladdi. So save money I trapped instead of attacking which worked for about a week before they upped troop march, strength, and gear. So I bought again and again just to keep up at bare minimum. 2 days later I was so below the bottom line I almost got zeroed out in 1 hit. I quit not long after that and it looks like it’s just gotten worse. Sad I lost friends and contacts. Machine zone company doesn’t give a flying fuk about their customer base. Most of the time the only reason they made player motivated changes was because we boycotted. It’s sad to see the manipulation and addiction tactics they use against their players
Review
by XxValiant316 on 2018/04/04 16:52
I been playing this game for a few years now I first started in kingdom 304 tiki but I think this game is getting to complicated harder to play with all the new stuff that keep coming. I like game that are simple and that don't break your wallet it's to late for me to stop playing cause I invested a lot of time and money in this game so I'm just going to keep playing cause I meet a lot of friends in this game but most of them already left the game. I think they should slow down on bringing in the new stuff and slow down on the new updates they should bring the prices down or have different catogory of prices not just 100.00 dollars packs. Most players already mentioned this to mz but I don't think there will be any slow down.
Ridiculous
by Dem12644 on 2018/04/04 06:14
This is no longer a “strategy” game, because you can’t even make any progress unless you are willing to spend $$$. I only log into this to see how ridiculous this game has become with their 1,100+ stonghold levels.
I used to love GoW
by TorrieJ. on 2018/04/03 00:54
GoW was fun and exciting; now I'm only going on to the game to make sure my shields are up! I can't compete with people that spend a grand a month on upgrades. I don't even know why I keep the game on my phone.
Great revenue model.
by TwoSherpaz on 2018/04/02 01:42
I am completely ashamed I wasted so much time and money on this terribly addictive game. Psychologists and behavioral scientists developed a game that bleeds you of cash. This is maybe the worst thing I’ve ever experienced on the Internet.
Used to be fun
by MommyofD on 2018/04/02 00:58
A few years ago, this game was really fun and exciting. Now, they’ve added soooo much stuff that it masked it hard to even play the game anymore. So many people have left. Bring it back to the basics like it used to be without all of this extra crap that you’ve brought in, and it’ll be great again 👍🏼
Pay to Play is a SCAM
by Rob San Miguel on 2018/04/02 00:41
I wonder how many ppl go BROKE trying to play this game. These people are the devil himself. I hope you choke on the money you scam people out of.
Money hungry
by Gejgfg on 2018/03/31 15:33
This game just wants you to spend money
Sad 😪
by mightyalbert5 on 2018/03/31 06:44
This game is really fun but...all the game wants you to do is spend $$$ and buy "MORE PACKS" the longer you play the more upgrades you need and there in some cases where the building time can take over 5 months to build and unless you buy a speed pack with $$$ you will have to wait that long.☹️ this game was really fun before the did a pay to win game and i used to play it days on end I got to level 500 yesterday but other people are level 1000 because they bought packs I haven't bought 1 pack yet and I'm that level but I've been playing for 3 years now... what I'm trying to say is Don't get this game unless you want to lost a lot of $$$ listen to me ok?? Peace ✌️
The average person spends over 500$ on this game
by Matt man05 on 2018/03/31 00:28
Am a fair grader this game deserves this rate. If your free to play my math calculations says you would never get everything in the game without money by the time you did you would be dead. Just make good again it used to be but not any more.
Mixed emotions
by LT806 on 2018/03/30 21:58
I enjoy the game, but I can say it was a lot more fun a couple of years back when the amount it cost to be a viable competitor was a lot lower. Now if you want to stay competitive it’s several hundred dollars a month and a significant investment of time as well. I still play and absolutely LOVE the camaraderie of friends around the world! I’ve not encountered a game that integrates worldwide access and translation like this does. The friends are what keeps me coming back now...the game has kinda lost its overall allure otherwise.
Most expensive app
by Free? No. on 2018/03/30 14:09
Prepare to pay to play.
Don’t download it
by Phantom739 on 2018/03/30 08:54
It been many years I’ve played this game and I want to say is these people are right. Do not download this game unless you’re planning to spend over a hundred dollars to win. It’s a pay to win game and everyone that is 10x higher level then you will most likely attack for research. They show now mercy once your shield is down. I been activating my shield for 24/7, until I don’t have it anymore. I stopped playing this game because of pay to win, it used to be fun until they screw it up. So that’s my review, Don’t download it. Goodbye and sorry my old guilds, I wish you luck.
Money Grubbing Programmers
by Achilz on 2018/03/29 12:18
I agree with the reviews that complain about the expense of playing this game. It can be fun to play but when you have to buy $99 gold packs just to stay in the game it is not worth it.
Loved it until I spent over $2000 to level up!
by Fore54ss on 2018/03/29 02:48
First off. I quit this game about a year ago. After realizing that, in order to keep up with the other guys I had to spend money. Lots of money! There were a few people that kept it simple and just built up, but keeping up with my team began to take a toll....on my wallet! A few drinks on a Friday night and I would purchase stuff that I “needed” and the next day I’d swear off buying. If you have great willpower then you might enjoy this game. I did, until I spent a mortgage payment and bounced a freaking check. I’m an idiot, no doubt. If you aren’t sure that you won’t be, then think twice. Honest review. Game was fun until it made me realize that I couldn’t control my spending on things that I “needed”. In a GAME!
Dont get it
by Vending lady 81 on 2018/03/28 13:27
This game is addicting its also highly expensive to pay for pacs you need... good packs that have everything cost $100 each time...you can get other packs for less but normally $20 and they are not enough to keep you up in up in the game... This game also is high on glitches and when you talk to support its the same generic response reboot... and i hope you like game crashes... you should expect these on the daily. So if you want to play go for it but expect lots of glitches and no help from support. Also, I hope you have deep pockets
Big spenders only
by Arya Artemis on 2018/03/27 00:16
If you are ready to spend hundreds of dollars every month to buy the virtual items needed to be relevant in this game, then please, sign up. If you are smarter than that I suggest you play elsewhere.

Game used to be fun long time ago. Now everyday they want you to spend $99 dollars to get the newest thing.
Not for New Players
by WinterMagnolia on 2018/03/25 05:48
This game has been changed and made vastly harder in the last year. There is simple no way a new player could enter the game and compete unless an older player gives them an established “kingdom/castle”. Level 21 was as high as a gamer could achieve for the first several years which kept players able to compete on a more or less even level but now the highest level is over 151! Unless you have $1000 to spend in the first month of play you could never hope to be anything but a benchwarmer. There so many new troops and monsters etc that have been added to the game and vast amounts of research to pay for to be able to use these troops etc that it would take months to complete them. Huge quantities of players have left this game due to it becoming ridiculously out of control. All of the many gamers I knew and enjoyed, and who played this game for years are now gone. Bottom line... Skip this game and find one you’ll be able to compete in and enjoy. This isn’t it.
SoSo
by Guamanian sensation on 2018/03/24 21:22
This game use to be exciting!!! Now it’s more of a money dumping game that never ends. And for myself to continue to be vested from what I’ve spent it’s unfortunate 😬hopefully MZ can reconsider bringing the fun back...
Not as glorious as it used to be
by Andrewquartz on 2018/03/24 18:30
The game used to be not pay to win, I remember 9000 gold was A LOT back then now there are packs selling 99999999999999999999 gold that doesn't even do much besides let you buy a couple things, bsck then your lucky if you even had passed 1 million power, and had a level 21 stronghold, it was about grinding back then, now it's to see who spends the most money. Each pack each day costs more and more money, you miss a deal for 20 dollars? Now it's 50. Do not get it, it isn't worth it what so ever, I remember when this game was the top of the charts but MZ is entirely pay to win now, MZ if you'd like to contact the players and do a entire data base wipe you probably will return to formal glory
MONEY TRAP!!!
by Kevin Clay on 2018/03/24 10:19
Takes too much money to stay competitive. They are catering to the very, very wealthy. If you can't spend at least $3000 a month you won't win. 😡😡😡😡
Believe The Bad Reviews!
by JoeyBeets on 2018/03/23 19:58
Don’t download, don’t play. Too bad there aren’t any enterprising developers out there who could redevelop it the way it was back in the early “Kate as Athena” days when the game peaked.
Terrible money waster
by Drunstick on 2018/03/23 17:26
This game is THE definition of pay-to-win. Seriously. If you aren’t dumping $1000+ a month into it, you have no chance of being competitive. None. Find a different game.
You’re the one being played
by joeboy05 on 2018/03/22 06:47
Make no mistake, this is no “game.” It is an insidious system of extortion. It is morally bankrupt. It is not worthy of a single star. It is not worthy of your money. It is not worthy of the time it inevitably steals from your life. It is not worthy of you.
Used to be fun
by appleseeds11 on 2018/03/21 23:29
This used to be a fun game, but don't even bother trying it unless you're willing to LITERALLY spend at least $1k. Play at your own risk.
Just stop
by Lexib228 on 2018/03/21 12:58
This game was fun to play when I first started over two years ago. I had great online friends and we dominated in our kingdom. Then all the glitches began during the events and the insane costs for packs began to add up. Everyone began to slowly drop out of the game, empty accounts everywhere, and hardly anyone plays anymore. The upgrades just don't make sense at this point and the game is just plain garbage. Don't waste your time or money. There are better things you could be doing with your time.
Endless pit
by Sol€€€ on 2018/03/20 20:58
I agree with the comment about how fun it was. I’ve been playing for over 3 years now of straight login time. You can’t seem to go anywhere with out buying things. I would like to see the fun come back. Great game not enough fun anymore. Still playing because I’ve spent a lot on the game. And it still barely scratches the surface of play. Even at 1bttttt power I’m still well below others. Just don’t have the money to keep up. One of the only original players in my kingdom.
Ads
by RiZe JameZ on 2018/03/20 14:40
I would give the game a five star easily. If it wasn’t for the constant barrage of ads that has crashed my game multiple times in the past.
It's never enough
by Supergohan16 on 2018/03/19 23:25
God this game is so much fun. Only when your in an alliance though. Having all the people help you in you quest for domination. Though it's never enough i need to destroy more kingdoms.😈😈😈 mwahahaha! 😆
It’s time for games like this to die
by Kevins6n on 2018/03/19 12:54
I’ve play GOW for 18 months and the developers have turned it into a complete money grab. It’s an interesting marketing test to see how much a small group of people will pay to play a game and “beat” everyone else. You will spend at least $1000 a year if you truly want to win something, much more if you want to be the best. I play on and off, not everyday, and use 30 day peace shields to prevent midnight raids. But after setting my shield on 3 March, I was completely annihilated on the 4th?!? I’m done with glitches; that complete loss cost me hundreds of $$. Trillions of troops gone. My hero can’t be revived because the other player used ultimate execution and my player can’t be resurrected when that happens. That was the last straw, I’m contacting Apple for a refund and filing a complaint against Machine Zone and the seller. Stay away from this game, far away.
Horrible People

The latest round of updates are the world. Forcing them retroactively on existing kingdoms has increased discrepancies in play among players. Only those capable and desiring to spend hundreds of dollars can be even remotely decent now.
Awesome game

Very,very addictive
Run far away
by Umzy32 on 2018/03/17 16:41
Unless you have an extra $400-$500 a month to spend, run far away from this quagmire. Everyone who started in this game has left. The greed is strong with MZ.

Don’t even bother to play this game anymore.
Game has lost the fun
by I am Rue on 2018/03/14 22:28
Daily handouts instead of earning rewards & upgrades. Remain shielded 100% because big money players will crush you. Less monsters. Too many dead kingdoms and inactive players cluttering up the game. It’s turned into pure boredom.
Game of War
by Milodebb on 2018/03/14 20:42
You have to spend a lot of money to grow big enough to not get wiped out. Bigger players literally break smaller players who leave the game. I spent over $1,000 in just 5 months trying to get strong enough to defend myself. But the rules change constantly and unless you are playing 20 hours out of 24, and spending several hundred dollars every week or so, you will get burned and lose your hero. Not worth the time or $$$$$.
So much fun!
by Amyrj1 on 2018/03/14 09:24
I enjoy this game greatly. Yes sometimes money is spent but there are small packs at a nice price.
Not to bad.
by Zolkorrs on 2018/03/12 19:10
Loved it when it first started now you have to spend a lot of money to really gain power..
What's the problem
by Martinkkent on 2018/03/12 03:18
This is a great game when it finally works. I've spend a lot of money on this game but half of the times it dose not work 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Never free
by Salesrep273 on 2018/03/11 23:25
This game was never free but several years ago you could play and be competitive spending $100 a month. Not any more.
Used to be so much fun
by N0t4g33k on 2018/03/11 20:21
There was stuff to learn, building to do... now it’s about how much spending you can do. Bummer.
Money pit
by sirdougie on 2018/03/11 02:50
I just recently quit playing this game after three years. No other game kept me playing as long as this one did. Mz pretty much killed all enjoyment to be had from this game. Kvk s were originally weekly, they recently had one which was the first kill event they had outside of their mega wonder kingdoms in many months. Anything u buy in a pack becomes obsolete almost immediately after u buy it. It used to be lower level players could score points in kill events by slaying monsters. Now nearly all of the monsters are super behemoth level and nearly impossible for a low level player to kill. Other players are not kidding when they say u can be instantly zeroed in one hit. Nowadays it don’t even take a rally. I’ve never before seen a game as immensely addictive as game of war become utterly boring. Mz has completely ruined this game. What finally did it in for me was the recent additions of demigods. They rigged it to where u must pay a hundred dollars to get your stronghold to 1101, just for the right to even research for the troops. Every hour they would send u free demigod resources , too bad u can’t actually use those without paying for the upgrade. My stronghold was at level 1100, my heroes are all at level 550, I had a troop count of 79.6 btttt troops with 2 mt monsters. Any empire with a star rating on their power could kill all those troops with a single hit. I spent a while just going around capping a few heroes I could find. None but millionaires could ever capture the wonder. This game is dead and I’ve finally moved on. I’ll never again play it. If you’ve never tried it, save your money. Don’t.

I’ve been a MachineZone, inc. fan since the glory days of Jet Fighters, Original Gangsterz, and iMob. It’s sad to see that the simple, good ‘ol days are gone. I miss that old style of simple game play. Plus, the micro transactions have gone off the roof lately. It ruins the gameplay and team dynamic. Even if the old games were just “clicker games,” they had substance and a good player base. At least remaster one of those classic games and let the love for Machine Zone, inc. comeback.
Scam

I bought a pack, and my account got hit by a random ban when I logged in! Fix your crap MZ
Awesome but problems

I love this app because I lvl my self up it’s easy with out hackers/they are the problem
Worst game ever!
by DJArsnL on 2018/03/06 13:01
Used to be a good game, now they make troops that ignore hospitals and will just be killed it ignored the design of the game! And what took YEARS TO ACHIEVE. ALSO I SPEND HI DREDS LITERALLY TO HAVE A SKULL DESIGN ON MY BASE AND THEY THEY TOOK IT ALL AWAY WHEN I LEVELED IT UP AGAIN.
Stay away!
by Rgergetg on 2018/03/06 03:16
This “game” is easily the worst game that I have ever tried to play. I say”tried” because you rarely get to actually play it. This is because if you aren’t strong you will get decimated and lose everything...so you stay under a shield until you get “stronger” or “caught up” right? WRONG! The problem is, you will never be “caught up” because they release new levels weekly and therefore you need to buy a “pack” every week just to keep caught up! EXPENSIVE! And if you buy one, you will regret it almost immediately. Another problem, and there are MANY, is that there are just way too many items in the game. Every new monster and new building requires some type of new item in order to unlock it, and different new items to upgrade it. The game is extremely bogged down with items into the thousands. Oh, and I must mention that resources are worthless, even though they give you some free ones often. Can you imagine having 1TTTTTT (yes, those “T’s” stand for Trillion) food but nothing worthwhile to spend it on? Thats the reality. It also takes a PhD to figure out how to play it, as there are so many different buildings and things to tap and hidden upgrades. Also, the game has many bugs that i wont get into because I am getting tired of wasting my time on this game. If this review keeps at least one person from downloading the game, it will have been worth it. Seriously folks, there are so many games that are more fun, less frustrating and cost less. Go look elsewhere. This is not what you want, I am sure of it.
Terrible
by I Hate Game Of War: Fire Age on 2018/03/06 01:25
I got the game, and it seemed so confusing!!! Clash of clans is a much better alternative. Well, there is the ‘cleverish’ coach, Athena, the goddess of wisdom, but she look modern-day, not Greek!! Anyways, she is not the goddess of wisdom anymore because she has the game. Plus, after 5 minutes, I couldn’t bear the thought of this stupid app wasting my storage, so I deleted it. If your wondering, it look like five minutes to install and I still found bugs. The coaching is so short that it doesn’t really teach the game to someone kinda young like me.

by Bbbgj on 2018/03/05 16:03
MZ greed had destroyed this game. I recently had an issue and contacted them they did absolutely nothing to help me. Unfortunately this game seems like it’s on its way out, almost like they are trying to drive people to quit.

Don’t play this game
by Forever Addicted DGW on 2018/03/02 02:25
This game used to be tops, but now they are greedy. Updates everyday requiring you to buy packs at $99.00 USD. The $19.00 packs are filled with garbage that you already have...not worth it!
Fun.
by Aoadon on 2018/03/01 14:12
Really fun and addicting game. It got my super hooked into the game and doesn’t require you to spend money. A lot of fun while I’m bored at work or have nothing to do I play it. Kills the time really well and lots of fun.
Game of war
by Poppi1234 on 2018/03/01 05:52
I love this game, it takes a lot of time but it iOS Is fun watching your city grow as you do All the quests. You don't have to spend Any money unless you want to. The Members in your alliance are generous With helping you grow. My alliance is Wieland Revolutioners it is a great Group of people from Germany to New Zealand and many places in between. Ok, it is a year later and I have seen my alliance go to another kingdom due to a merge and now it is all about the money. $99 bucks for a bunch of stuff you will never use, resources that you used to have to farm for and try not to get attacked while doing it are now measured with million trillion trillion numbers that are ridicules. You have to click or poke till your fingers bleed. There is so much going on with reasearch trees and other kingdoms, new monsters, that if you don’t have a life you could just live here poking and training troops that can be wiped out in two seconds if you let your guard down by a guy who spends 5 grand a week. So I put on a 30 day shield and come back in 30 days to do it again, just to check out if anything has changed for the better, so far not.
Don't waste your time or your money
by Kaderith on 2018/02/28 22:46
This game has great potential however, the developers left a fatal flaw in their design programming. Unless you have the money to spend on extras in-game, you will be bullied relentlessly by high lvl players who have spent large sums of money on this game. Such much so, you will find you can't play the game! I've been relentlessly attacked over and over and over again, loosing all troops and resources so that I can't play the game. Don't waste your time. Games should be fun. And this game is just not fun. Mostly dead accounts, no active alliances or players anywhere to be found. The only active players are those who have spent thousands in this game and you will NEVER have a chance against them.

by Easy money 68 on 2018/02/28 07:48
The game is a joke now they took all the fun out of it completely. I played for over 4 years and put will over 4 thousand in it . My friends have put more then over 10 grand . As soon as you buy a pack to get caught up the next day they come out with something new again . You can’t keep up at all . Trust me don’t start playing it it’s a wast of your money now .
Game Of War. (CatLee)
by CathyLee21 on 2018/02/27 22:48
I love this game! It's so much fun to chat and become friends with people from all over the world! And the battles are awesome, along with killing monsters! It can cost you money if your not patient, but you can get by with spending little or none like me :) You have to try this game! This is a game of strategy, you actually have to think to play it unlike some others that have you just sit like a zombie with no mind at all! Just an update to my first review...I had played this game for a very, very long time! However I had to leave it due to all the money I had to spend in order to keep up with everyone else upgrading! It was a good game to meet great people on! But unless you have lots of money to throw away and lots of time to spend on this game I suggest you look somewhere else for entertainment!
Game Over
by Rstevers on 2018/02/27 15:26
The game has reached the end of its life. The days of FUN are over, now it’s only a game of SPENDING. Save your money, there are better ways, and cheaper, to enjoy yourself...
Prepare to spend $$$$$
by flipflopkc on 2018/02/26 20:13
I have played this game from the beginning. If you have deep pockets you’ll be fine, but be prepared to spend, and spend a lot if you want to be a top player. Otherwise find some other way to spend your money and have fun. I’m done wasting my time with this game and MZ.
over it
by Saryax0 on 2018/02/26 02:54
I’ve been playing this game for almost 6 years now. In the beginning it was fun but now I’m over it. There’s too much going on, it’s not about building and growing anymore, it’s all about pay to play. For the last almost 3 years, I haven’t let my shield down because its so easy to get smushed under the paying players. That really killed it for me because what’s the point in playing if you’re not really playing? Anyways it’s become quite boring despite MZ adding all these knew things... it just over complicated the game. I’m looking for something else to play. It’s sad because I see a lot of people leaving this game that have been there for years but they won’t change anything for us. It’s all about the money. Oh well. It’s just so boring now. I spent all this money on a game for “gold” for it to be obsolete. How disappointing. I finally get billions in gold and I can’t even use it. Deleting the app. Save yourself the trouble, play literally anything else.
Too expensive to play and keep up
by BRHutch76 on 2018/02/25 12:56

To Expensive
by Doris1957 on 2018/02/25 02:10
When I started this game was fun. Now it’s all about the money..you can’t grow without spending. I have given up and decided to no longer play until MZ brings back the fun!!
Law Suit Pending..?

WARNING!!
by Bmyhousekey on 2018/02/24 03:11
Unfortunately, the company that owns this game, Machine Zone, has failed to listen to its loyal gamers and continues to excessively upgrade. They have made so many adjustments and paid changes that it has become near impossible to actively play without spending almost $100 a month. Please do not support this game.

Waste of money
by Don7777 on 2018/02/22 19:20
Have played for over four years. It was a game you couldn’t put down. Playing at all hours of the night or day. It was very addictive. Now the developer lost his mind and destroyed the basic concept of the game. It was a game of strategy with a focus on growing and fighting wars. Today it is a buy this, buy that every day. If you don’t spend money you can’t play. Other games of strategy have a basic game that never changes. You can play at any level and if you wanted to buy occasionally to speed up the process of growing so be it. Not with The Game of War. The game is buying to keep pace not playing the game to keep pace. They totally blew it. Have erased the game both from my tablet and phone.
No support
by Jarett H on 2018/02/22 16:48
Read all the 1 star reviews they are correct...game lag is horrible when it counts....get kicked all time when it counts....when mz has a problem it's the players fault and useless emails....support never ever has resolved an issue prepare to spend at least $50 a week just to play...and bump that to another $100 or $200 a month to actually attack someone.
Defects, lag & too many updates
by PJWSpanda on 2018/02/22 00:52
Feb 2018 Game of Wallets cause money and a credit card is required to click click click for hours to play for minutes. Free to those who have forever to click or just like the cat feature. 11 months gone and I think it’s time to spend on something useful or fun. MZ, updates and $100 packs is the cause of fewer players. But hey, I’m sure the other game developers appreciate it very much. Dec 2017 Updates are fast and furious but don’t resolve any issues even as simple as kingdom name on profile. No time to enjoy the game whether you pay to update or not. Those that pay destroy others which may be fun for some with a power complex but then the chance for ongoing play and competition were destroyed as well. Right now it’s about the people I’ve met, not the game.
MZ lies and steals
by Idontwantanickname4234 on 2018/02/21 02:10
MZ is very dishonest. You have to pay hundreds of dollars for packs just to stay ahead. However, the pack descriptions are very vague and you will not receive what you paid for. If you do pay for packs, use caution. Once you unpack and start training, your 30 day shield will drop 16 days early and you will get attacked, losing all the rss and troops you just trained. MZ has even resorted to requiring “screen shots to prove what it said. When you provide the screen shots backing your claims, they then talk down to you and tell you that they “understand how packs can be confusing to people who don't understand.” Very dishonest and money grabbing company.
Good to be rich.
by Larricus on 2018/02/20 23:02
My view is a lot like others'. If you have the money to play you'll find this game fun but even for someone like me who played for a year and a half it gets tiring to be continuously walked on by people with deeper pockets and bigger wallets then me. Oh and Machine Zone (the developers) won't care about you if you aren't a big spender. Just an FYI. I had an issue about a glitch id found that messes me up and they blew me off and sent me an email intended for someone else. I was really embarrassed for them.
Meh😒
by NaSims1 on 2017/09/02 02:29
Few years ago when I started playing the game, it was fun and exciting. The game gave you a purpose for logging on and staying up late. No matter what your power level was or your alliance ranking, you wanted to log on so you can build, grow and train your army to trod the battlefield field, attack your enemies and watch them Burn. Now, it's all about money. It is no longer a strategic game. It more about who can spend the most money to upgrade their "Stronghold" then brag about it. When you joined a good alliance you were able to work together and grow. NOW, the game forces you and the alliance to spend money to upgrade and the packages are expensive. Sometimes it give you nice discount on the packages, but who wants to spend their waking moments chasing down a deal for upgrades. While I do understand that you have to spend a little money and I was aware of that when I decided to play the game, but come on guys it's getting a little excessive. I find that more people are deciding to leave the game some of which are the founding members of there alliance and this is sad. Even though we write about the issues we have with the game, it seems that it will never change. Game of Wars will continue to do what is best for them and not their loyal gamers. It's sad to say but If you are new to the game and are thinking about starting to play, I would recommend spending your money on something else
game ruined by daily updates & MZ greed
by saltfork squatch on 2017/08/27 14:22
this used to be an incredibly fun game, but has taken a serious turn for the worse in the last few months...it is not a "FREE" game...sure, you can download it for free, but don't expect to be able to play...the math used makes absolutely zero sense...they don't even use real numbers to calculate anything...what exactly is 1KTT...lol...they use these unreal numbers to complete fuse and bait people to spend money...they put stuff in their packs, and never deliver the goods...it's always "bait & switch"...advertising things in packs that you never receive...I have been playing for almost 4 years and remember when they had their "GUARANTEED last VIP level ever at VIP 20"...that was a huge lie & marketing ploy...you can now obtain VIP 200...there have to be several laws that this company is violating by fraudulent advertising...the better business bureau & fair trade commission should be contacted by anyone who ever spent money, because MZ has robbed us all & continue to lie in their advertising...also, if you have an issue, don't expect any customer service to help...they do t actually have customer service...everything is an automated response & they never address the issues brought to their attention...I used to tell everyone to play this game, but now, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone...stay away from this game & anything else MachineZone has their name on
Don’t download!
by AlwaysLion Kingdon 366 on 2018/01/28 03:10
Two 1/2 years ago I downloaded this app. I was addicted right off the bat by the social aspect. It was fun and events gave you purpose each player had roles to fill. Slowly over time I realized that I could never catch up cause I could never afford it. The gap between competitive/active game play and those who had to farm for their progress widened quickly. I ended up spending $$$$ to keep up. I quit finally realizing that the amount of fun I was getting per $ was depleting. Well I popped in recently to look around and realized I can’t come back if I waned too without spending cash just to be able to fill a rally. That’s not even relevant anymore. Don’t waste time dead accounts everywhere and if you find yourself miraculously in a very active kingdom it’s gonna be full of mean spenders. Even when I played the game is the equivalent of taking a baseball bat to your neighbors brand new car and then telling them oh well get a new one. Cause these accounts represent REAL MONEY! Some cost the same price as a new house. The whole point of them game when played correctly is to attack, burn, capture the opponents hero and execute it. To do that you kill troops. Troops cost money to make and so when a player is zeroed that means all troops killed .... you have effectively destroyed thousands of dollars of property. FOR REAL!!
Ok, but...
by Bev BV on 2017/10/22 06:53
It’s a visually stunning and complex game, I’ll give Machine Zone that. Still, you cannot play this game and make any real progress without paying a LOT of money. There is no end to the amount of spending you will have to do in order to keep up with the game as the engineers continually add more things that you will feel compelled to obtain/achieve to maintain relevance and a sense of accomplishment. This is how they hook you. The constant gaming evolution would otherwise be a gamer’s dream-come-true, save for the fact that these things are NOT attainable for free or by “waiting it out.” You MUST spend money. And not just $20 here or there... I’m talking about hundreds or even thousands of dollars. To top of it all off, despite the exorbitant amount of revenue this game generates, there is still an inexcusable amount of glitches and lag within the game, as well as slow & incompetent customer service when problems arise. Bottom line, DON’T download this game unless you are prepared to drop loads of cash to “enjoy yourself.” Otherwise, don’t even bother. Take it from me; I have played this game for several years now, and I can attest to all of this from very personal (and financial) experience.
Spenders are leaving game
by ahalia on 2018/01/18 14:29
Do not let your kid on this game it’s very expensive, vulgar, violent, mean and cruel environment. Shame on Mz and Apple for Posting this game as good for for 9 year olds and up. It should be 18+ with deep pockets and hours a day to waste. Latest updates aren’t fun at all. you buy today, setup is tedious takes a few hours all so that tomorrow your obsolete due to a new feature release that you must buy. This Flash pace of new features required to advance in game make it a game you can’t enjoy unless you spending $300 min a week plus many hours daily. You could Spend $20 a week, at that point you pay to build but can’t really play. Spend $100 a week you can play but not much you can do after a day or two. So it’s spend deep, play same day or stay shielded. This used to be the best game ever! Most players stay in game out of addiction and hope game will be as fun as it once was. For many biggest draw and why they still play is the friends made on game. There is not a single kingdom with full full alliance not even enormous gg to fill a rally. More than half of accounts are abandoned. It’s a dead game with just a few super addicted players or Mz players. Money Zapped, time wasted. Some players lost their jobs , their marriage and even their homes over this game. Be safe, stay away
Wasted days
by FredBoeheim on 2017/12/29 02:57
Update- left the game! Never again will I play a game such as GOW! Apple should be ashamed for allowing this type of model to continue to exploit their customers. This game is addictive and a horrible waste of cash and time. The only way to progress to a point where you are victorious is to expend ridiculous amounts of cash. The game freezes, crashes at the most in opportune times and customer service is worthless. It's all about the Benjamin's. The game has so much potential, but through the greed of the developers and the domination of a few players with extremely deep pockets, what once was an excellent war game has devolved into an expensive version of FarmVille. Watching the timers click off as you wait patiently for skills that take upwards on 50 days to complete, unless you purchase gold to purchase speed ups, is as much fun as mowing the yard. I expect to join the cadre exiting the game and sell my acct soon. Excellent at first, blows now. 2017 update -things have gotten entirely out of control and impossible to follow. Items gifted or purchased are measured in TTTT, what the heck is a TTTT? How long is TTTT DAYS? High priced packs, the hundred dollar packs, typically go on sale within the week, to be replaced by a new and improved $99 pack. Truly sad. Seems like more and more players are bailing.
Getting worse by the day..
by C and K on 2017/12/28 17:08
Don’t waste your time. It’s all about the money now. This game used to be fun and I actually wanted to log in to play and chat with my alliance, but now new upgrades and crap Every. Other. Day. No joke...every other day you need to buy a pack of stuff just to keep up. It’s absolutely crazy. The first year I played I never even had to buy a pack to play and enjoy, but now if you don’t then you might as well not play because you will get ruined in minutes. 90% (over 100 people) of the people I used to play with have quit the game because no one can keep up with the amount of money needed keep buying upgrades. And then let’s say you do buy a pack...the next day the same pack is cheaper and it has all the same stuff. Why would I want to buy something when I can just wait and get it cheaper? But PLEASE...If you change NOTHING else...FIX THE INVENTORY/ITEMS LISTS!!!! EVERY time I click something it puts me back at the top of the list. When you have to scroll through hundreds of items that gets really old really fast. I hate doing anything because it takes so long. And it’s only in the past couple months it’s done that. Fix the crap that’s wrong with the game and chill on the the updates and maybe people would play again. 🙄😒
Just Nasty
by Fun... But... 😔 on 2017/10/22 21:20
MZ, just stop. Your advertisements are annoying, especially when you make us not only watch a video, but actually play the "game". The game you show does not even have good graphics, and it was probably copied from a primitive tower defense game. Needless to say, this "video" advertisement is nothing like GOW at all. However, I would argue that this tower defense game is more fun than the sht MZ gives us. I haven't even gotten into the real gameplay yet! We have people here, downloading the game because they like tower defense games, only to find that it is a game like Goodgame Empires. This is not okay. And the biggest problem is is that you might want to spend your life savings on this game, but not only do the packs come late (sometimes a week later), one hit from another player and boom! Your SH is gone. This game is an absolute disgrace and is only fun if you spend thousands (trust me, people have). This game was ruined by greedy developers. Edit: If I could, I would rate it 0 stars. I thought it was bad in December of 2016 but I was wrong. MZ comes out with new updates every day and you literally have to spend hundreds of dollars a week to catch up to not even the top players, but just the medium sized players. I am just done, and I am quitting forever.
Not a game at all
by Student of health on 2018/01/24 21:47
I played at high level at one point. Had 20K+ into my account. When I leveled my spending off to enjoy my killing spree, everyone seemed to catch me very quickly. Maybe 2 months later I went from the top castle in the realm to middle of the pack. Mind you spending still but at a reasonable level. Stopped playing because the additions came so fast and often it boggles the mind to keep up. Now after several years, I went back in the game for laughs not expecting my account to still be active. It actually was though. Now I log in and look at the packs and low and behold if MZ doesn’t give me all kinds of freebies each time. After a few months of this my account is middle road competitive with zero spending. I could even buy a pack for $15 and max out all attributes if I wanted to. Imagine if you had a castle worth tens of thousands and I could come along and burn you with $15!! Bottom line.. if you want to play, think again because MZ will screw you eventually and there are literally unbelievable amounts of stuff to the game and they will never stop adding cuz it’s only way to make money. That’s all it’s about not a game but MZ’s money Machine.
Over 2 years playing GOW
by Jaydomina on 2017/12/02 08:19
$$=win, No $$= no win, Glitches all the time(especially during major events) This due to the fact that their IT team does not understand networking or don't care enough to purchase correct number of servers and NOS ( Network Operating System) When you contact support, you get ridiculous answers. You can explain an issue clearly to GOW and there answer is always "checked your account and the numbers are good" (put clearly not) or "sorry we can't reverse the damage, but here are some free resources" (these resources don't even fix 5% of the damage caused by their glitches) Packs that offer free packs are not clearly labeled (you think your getting certain number of free packs, only to be disappointed with less than that) . GOW keeps adding new game changers but you spend hours trying to implement them and get a very short time to use or new stuff comes out before you can setup the stuff you just bought!! Basically you end up paying & setting up, but not playing!! Only thing I like is chatting on game, but I can do that on free chat apps. So if you like throwing money away and chatting...this game is for you!!👍
The Terminator
by TOPICEGUN28 on 2018/02/14 05:08
While the game is highly addictive and a good strategy game. Players make friendly contacts all over the world which makes the game more fun to play. Downsides to this game are lack of certain features that have been request by players to make the game easier to play have cause many players to be highly annoyed with programmers. Server issues have continued for months which cost players valuable time and lost of rss and troops, especially during KvKs also make players highly annoyed. Additional servers should be add to reduce lags and glitches. Key updates should be added to game. Programmers and developers should listen to players requests more carefully to enhances players needs and wants which will make the game better for all. Players are selling out of the game because the lack of concern game developers have for players requests for refunds due to lags and glitches which cost them $$$, instead the developers chose to freeze the players accts. and ban them from play. Developers should fix the problems rather then block users from playing. Overall a good game, but can be better.
Stay far away
by schwa298747 on 2018/01/07 15:49
Pathetic.. Today we are at sh850 with tier 43 troops... multiple new heroes each week. Read back a month or so and see people complaining about a new drop or two per week. It is now 3-4 new $100 drops per day. Tonight the game is unplayable because they aren’t even checking their ridiculous releases because they don’t have the time to.. such a waste that a great game that was the top grossing daily and weekly app, has gotten to this point. They don’t listen to their customer and if they spent 5 minutes talking with them they could easily turn it around and make millions per day again... stay away from final fantasy as well, same company different name. Looks like they are using their business model and spinning new apps trying to capture what they had. They could hand me the reins and within a day or two I could easily make this the #1 app again. That’s how much they care about the people that pay their salaries... so pathetic and very disappointing.. they ran the top players out of the game, and we are talking people that spent $1000’s per week.
Not for New Players
by WinterMagnolia on 2018/03/25 05:48
This game has been changed and made vastly harder in the last year. There is simple no way a new player could enter the game and compete unless an older player gives them an established “kingdom/castle”. Level 21 was as high as a gamer could achieve for the first several years which kept players able to compete on a more or less even level but now the highest level is over 151! Unless you have $1000 to spend in the first month of play you could never hope to be anything but a benchwarmer. There so many new troops and monsters etc that have been added to the game and vast amounts of research to pay for to be able to use these troops etc that it would take months to complete them. Huge quantities of players have left this game due to it becoming ridiculously out of control. All of the many gamers I knew and enjoyed, and who played this game for years are now gone. Bottom line... Skip this game and find one you’ll be able to compete in and enjoy. This isn’t it.
Glitchy money pit
by LadyAnna1 on 2017/10/13 16:43
The game used to be fun. I've played since it was released! The good old days. In July 2017 a stronghold 40 was max... now it at 305. In line with the speed of all new releases... at troop level 18 now from t4 . You HAVE to buy to play this game... you cannot play without buying a minimum of $500 a month at minimum. But if you the money it's fine right? WRONG.. for a software company the have horrible programmers that can't keep the game functioning as intended😆. For a YEAR now the game has been plagued with glitches so bad your purchases cannot even be used! Ticket after ticket to MZ support and no fix in sight. They don't care about their players or the gaming experience at all... it's all about making money and customer service is nonexistent. This company should be sued for their false advertisements and not providing the game capabilities PURCHASEd by players... myself included. Today I quit because I realize the game will never work properly and the company doesn't care,., as long as people keep buying they keep profiting
Just a money grab now
by HickeyBE on 2018/01/19 14:46
I’ve played GoW for a long while now. It was fun with some strategy and teamwork necessary back when it first came out and the highest Stronghold was level 21. Now they don’t hide the fact that they’re squeezing you to spend money to get anywhere in the game. The highest Stronghold level is about 1000 and it goes up every few weeks so you need to spend more money to maintain your dominance. There’s no way to catch up in the game. If you don’t spend money then you’re stuck with weak, low-level troops. You can get level 4 troops without the need for any extra items. Now they have level 46 troops available and there is now way to get anywhere close to them without spending money. I now have more locked buildings that require you to spend money than I have normal buildings. It’s perverse. The game has become no fun to play. It has become impossible to grow. You can’t complete new quests because you haven’t spent the money to get the items necessary to compete. You build a little and train some more only to get swatted like a bug by the bigger players. Do yourself a favor and don’t download this if you don’t want to feel the pressure to spend money every time you play. Literally every time you open the app, you are presented with the “Buy Gold Packages” page. And then again when you collect some of the meager gifts they throw at you. There is no way around their barrage of messages to spend money.
The Rich prey on the Weak
by MCAS77 on 2017/09/29 05:31
I've been playing for 4 months now. I feel it's time to leave a proper review. Please. Don't. Stop... do not download this app. 1) it's addictive... fun right? No! Like an illegal drug you will spend money, wanting to advance to become the biggest and baddest kingdom in the land. Well... packages to upgrade start at $4.99. You buy one thinking oh that's not bad. From there they hit you with $19, $59, $79 and oh yes, $99 packages to upgrade! Don't be like me and think oh I'll just buy the $19 packages... it adds up! At a certain level, you HAVE to pay to upgrade!!!! There are players in this game that PAY $100's of dollars to become level 125! Only the RICH can do it! Plus, to upgrade buildings, it takes multiple days sometimes it takes a billion trillion trillion days!!! I AM NOT LYING. They give you speed up Day tokens, you have to pay for them of course. So many have stopped playing. A lot of castles sitting around without peace shields. They can't afford it and neither can I! Shame on you MZ!!😡
Game is a scam
by Seannw1 on 2017/12/01 23:00
This game is literally a scam and I honestly can not believe that Apple allows this piece of garbage to infest the App Store. I played this game for a long time, at first it was a pretty good game and I made great friends and even met my future wife while playing. Over the last 12-18 months the game has turned into a scam. Mz releases 1-3 new expensive updates a day and on some of these updates you will literally lose everything if you don’t cough up $99 the second it’s released. There isn’t any strategy in this game anymore, it’s all about who is willing to spend more. I would give this game no stars if apple would let me. I honestly don’t know why Apple hasn’t banned this company. Also don’t bother to play Mobil strike or final fantasy because they are the same as this game, just rebranded and skinned. They are so hated as a company that they can’t even use the same name in all of there games. They have to change it to Deceive people. You have been warned, steer clear of this game.
The game has been destroyed by MZ
by FastJames65 on 2018/02/14 22:45
I read these reviews and ask myself why should I make comments when everything I would write is consistently stated in everyone else reviews. I paid my dues to build and was enjoying the game until it became a money pit with no chance of being able to play because MZ is constantly releasing new stuff too quickly, i.e. MORE MONEY. By the time you get up to speed everything you have just purchased is obsolete because of new releases. Customer service is terrible also. If you write a ticket they use an auto read to screen for key words and then you get a response that has nothing to do with your issue. But they always thank you “warrior”. There is no good reason to get started in this game unless you have several thousand US dollars to throw away and you don’t care. Whatever you do don’t buy into this game. It has been destroyed by MZ because of greed and a complete lack of regard to customer loyalty. I hope they go broke, Boycott MZ today!
GOW Player Very addictive!
by Gale J on 2017/11/27 22:32
Great game but addictive! Love the game but something's cost to much. Plus somethings like the leaders has to much power over. No one should have the power to turn my alerts off from a main button but not change how I have those alerts set! Please take that away bc we all spend money sometimes so why play with people like that. Please take that button away from there! Please stop changing so much money for this game. I rather play and not spend any money now. Plus these mega wars that split alliances up or scatter them to other places is not that great of a feeling. Then someone else takes your Alliance over and some players are blocked from chat or they have their very on chat line but a person can rack up all kinds of points for the alliance and no one in that alliance ever talk to you. I just want to attack my own cities!
Used to be fun.....😪😪
by Liddylu on 2017/12/14 13:57
I started playing this game when it first came out. I was an R5 in one of the top alliances in the top kingdom (386). We couldn't wait for new updates and the price to pay was cheap. It was all about strategy and getting to know your kingdom. Then all of a sudden you had to spend $ to play,,, lots of money. Then even more money. I remember a time years ago I would stay up all night to rally people. We had a great time. Then it became ridiculous with new updates. I saw people that were maxed out, zeroed within hours of a new update. It was no longer about strategy. Cores used to be customizable for defense and attackers. Now it's all about the gear you buy. Hero level 550. Is crazy. I miss when SH were only level 21. That was when the game was actually fun. Don't download this game. You will lose your house and your wife/husband after the money you spend just to keep up. MZ took a fun game and ruined it. Clash Royale is much more fun and inexpensive.
Mz killed this beautiful game
by Nickname 1324579 on 2018/01/23 00:28
I started playing this game back in 2013 it was an amazing game of course it was really hard to grow and have real fun but you could actually do it. You could get far enough by spending a few dollars and have fun new features were really hard to get but also they didn’t add new features every day but every 2-3 weeks people could actually enjoy the features they pay for for quite some time. The game was still fair enough in 2016 but in 2017 mz got greedy and started adding new stuff more occasionally every 2 days new stuff then by a few more later they started adding new stuff every single day by the end of 2017 the we’re adding more than one stuff every day. That was crazy the game started using numbers that I never heard of before like10TTTT. But overall at the beginning the game was amazing I used to spend hours playing and never get bored of it, I was addicted to it. Thanks mz for making me quit my only addiction. Surdo503
over it
by Saryax0 on 2018/02/26 02:54
I’ve been playing this game for almost 6 years now. In the beginning it was fun but now I’m over it. There’s too much going on, it’s not about building and growing anymore, it’s all about pay to play. For the last almost 3 years, I haven’t let my shield down because its so easy to get smushed under the paying players. That really killed it for me because what’s the point in playing if you’re not really playing? Anyways it’s become quite boring despite MZ adding all these knew things... it just over complicated the game. I’m looking for something else to play. It’s sad because I see a lot of people leaving this game that have been there for years but they won’t change anything for us. It’s all about the money. Oh well. It’s just so boring now. I spent all this money on a game for “gold” for it to be obsolete. How disappointing. I finally get billions in gold and I can’t even use it. Deleting the app. Save yourself the trouble, play literally anything else.
MZ has gone insane
by Decadave on 2017/08/08 20:18
I started playing GoW a while ago, and the developer used to have updates every week or two. You had time to get caught up on all of the new research/building levels/troops between updates. Additionally, the updates were modest in how much improvement they gave to a player. If you didn't purchase a new pack, it wouldn't mean that you were irrelevant...it just meant that you weren't going to win the big battles. Over the last month, MZ has literally been offering new releases every day. If you want to be a strong player, you have to spend money daily. These new releases make players stronger by an order of magnitude. You can go from being the ruler of your kingdom, to a player that has all of his troops killed by a single attack two days later, if you don't buy new packs. MZ is running people out of this game at an incredible pace, because they can't afford to pay. It was a fun game, but now it just costs too much.
MZ is a joke
by BraveTala on 2017/12/06 03:24
When I start playing this game it was soooo much fun. Now like the others have said it has gone down hill in the last few months. If you have a problem in the game customer service doesn’t care. All mz cares about is the all mighty dollars the upgrades for your stronghold have gotten WAY out of hand ever single day there are more upgrades and things going on. If you don’t spend you might as well not play because you won’t last long. The people that I started play with a few years ago have almost all quit. A lot of the alliances are dead and not too many of the even rally anymore. You can be 300KTTTT and be rallied and be zero’d in one hit. But you’d think that MZ would get a clue. But nope. The only reason I’m still playing is because I have sunk soooooo much money into I can’t stand giving up and throwing so much money away. MZ doesn’t care about the customers at all they care a bout is how much money the can make off of you. Stay way
Game of war
by Poppi1234 on 2018/03/01 05:52
I love this game, it takes a lot of time but it iOS Is fun watching your city grow as you do All the quests. You don't have to spend Any money unless you want to. The Members in your alliance are generous With helping you grow. My alliance is Wieland Revolutioners it is a great Group of people from Germany to New Zealand and many places in between. Ok, it is a year later and I have seen my alliance go to another kingdom due to a merge and now it is all about the money. $99 bucks for a bunch of stuff you will never use, resources that you used to have to farm for and try not to get attacked while doing it are now measured with million trillion trillion numbers that are ridicules. You have to click or poke till your fingers bleed. There is so much going on with reasearch trees and other kingdoms, new monsters, that if you don’t have a life you could just live here poking and training troops that can be wiped out in two seconds if you let your guard down by a guy who spends 5 grand a week. So I put on a 30 day shield and come back in 30 days to do it again, just to check out if anything has changed for the better, so far not.
Extreme spending required to play
by NTJedi on 2017/08/09 04:40
A growing greed is the only focus of these developers. There's literally "zero" creativity with game updates and features... as every single one requires big spending and only adds increased attack types or defense types to your stats. Lots of dead features like forging items, treasure maps and killing monsters give old worthless rewards... VERY BORING. Game events also are old worthless rewards. You literally have all troops die with a single enemy attack even if you've spent hundreds in the game! Advertisements to buy packs spam your game mail too! LOTS of players spreading the news to avoid any games from Machine Zone such as Final Fantasy because the developers don't bring new ways of gaming fun, they only add higher stats costing more money. The only people still playing are the ones who spent lots of money in the game... and MZ pushing them away with the constant new updates needing more money from gamers.
Used to be fun
by CBKBGB on 2017/10/29 22:21
This game WAS fun and exciting till about 8months ago when the game developers decided to remove all strategic gameplay and make it all about how much and how fast you can spend. ‘Free to play’ is long gone, just a different version of FarmVille. Actual gameplay requires weekly, if not daily, in-app purchases. I’ve been back and forth with MZ customer service, which is a joke, and they pretty much confirmed this. Big shame, was an exciting fun game. Logging in these days is just to reload shields to protect the investment I already made into this game. I’ll have to let it go at some point since MZ doesn’t care about their loyal players that helped get them to where they are now with their game platform. Stay away from this game unless you have extra money that you really don’t want because 1 pack purchase will only last 48hours max. Should also note, images listed here are nothing like the actual game graphics
NO SUPPORT FOR PAYING PLAYERS!
by chazbzmom on 2018/01/25 19:54
I spend anywhere between $150 to $500 a month to play this game and remain competitive. I have to play a minimum of 5 hours after making a $20-$30 purchase in order to get everything up to date. No playing, just tapping upgrades & organizing purchased gear. Just 4 months ago I could keep it under $100 per month and stay current. It was fun. Now it’s too expensive. The updates are SEVERAL times per DAY, and each and every update is $. With the smallest pack at $20. 2 weeks ago, and one day, I had a glitch occur on my account. I had just spent $45 to get caught up and poof, my hero got stuck and unusable, so I cannot play. Now I am soooooo far behind, the error is “still being investigated” as of today & there is absolutely NO recourse on their end. No offer to provide any sort of compensation in order to make my account up to date, as it was just ONE hour before the glitch shut it down.
Think twice
by MZ needs professional help on 2017/08/28 07:44
Before installing Game of War. Once a fun game, it's now nothing more then a ticking time bomb. The summer of 2017 has brought about endless updates, that are almost daily.(Once monthly, then biweekly then weekly in the days of yore.) Miss even one and you won't enjoy the results. Unless you just won the lottery to spend ridiculous amounts of money, you won't be able to play for long. MZ has lost their mind and decided to see just how much cash they can squeeze from this cow before it becomes their next burger combo. The thing about daily updates are all the bugs introduced that often go unfixed. This includes the game packs you can purchase. Don't believe what the pack offer reads, it's a crap(50/50) shoot if you'll actually get what's advertised. Forget about customer service, its automated and they seem to delight in ignoring you every way possible. Except your money, they'll gladly take all of that.

by MakivilGOST on 2017/10/23 03:42
I’ve been playing this game for over 3 years. It was an excellent game at first. I took 3 years to build my city and troops, and witching less than 10 seconds it was all wiped away because I refuse to spend on another $20-$99 for another pack. Now I only log on to say hello to friends from my alliance to say hello. Besides, you can spend $99 today and tomorrow you can get a similar pack for $20 but the pack is now ancient after they update the game regularly and when they do they add another feature that forces you to spend more money or become obsolete as a player. I actually do not mind spending a few dollars for packs but this is becoming ridiculous. I’m too far in to quit but I rather become obsolete than give MZ another dime. I’ll probably spend $20 every six months to stay obsolete but I will never spend $20-$40 a week to stay current. I hope MZ is reading this because you just lost another loyal customer.
Not free anymore
by Jennifer P 1979 on 2017/10/29 23:25
I have been playing for 3 years and in the last few months MZ has been dropping new releases almost on a daily basis. Our kvks are barely once a month. They tend to bring a new release prior to a kvk without the ability to utilize the release. I was a rally leader and have a trap. As of April 28, 2017, hero 81-85 was released along with 4 new gem sets, new core and a defense gear. All within days of each other. We barely had the chance to adjust with t6s and the new VIP and now pretty much everyone is quitting and soon I will be one of them. I just wish MZ would stop with the releases and bring back the weekly kvks and give everyone time to adjust. We don't need any more releases for at least a year. Since August the hero and VIP has more than doubled along with the buildings. You need to be able to afford this game to play now as you need to be maxed just to play. It is no longer fun anymore. Do not download the game.
Lag issues effects ability to play
by RCS001 on 2017/12/01 04:54
Great game but now it is very expensive to keep up with. If you don’t pay for the way too frequent upgrades, you are basically playing a high dollar FarmVille... forget trying to take the Wonder or winning an attack on another city. Severe server lag and constant crashing is a daily event and the extremely poor response from customer service, speaking to you like you are an idiot is aggravating at best. The constant insistence that the problems are because of your device or internet connection instead of truthfully stating that their lack of QC before releasing the way too many upgrades/updates and poor server bandwidth will surely disappoint you. If they fix this, it is excellent game play and will be an absolutely excellent game. Please fix these issues and let us get back to the enjoyment from 3 years ago MZ😊
Don’t waste your time
by Sosa916 on 2017/09/28 20:06
I started playing this game 5 years ago with my son and was fun he social aspect. The battles. And slow growth. It took them 3.5 years too give us T5’s Troops and now we have T13’s with different gear dropping daily and no time to even learn new troops, new gear. It is all about greed now more then letting your loyal gamers have fun and battle. Everything has gotten out of hand so much do that you can a ridiculous amount of troops which take money and resources to build gone in just 1 attack. It’s sad to say after I was zeroed my son told me it’s time to quit. And as hard as it is I must say I have to agree with him. It has become To expensive to enjoy or even try.. I miss the good old days. So with a heavy heart of saying goodbye to dear friends it’s time to walk away.. and messaging machine Sind dies nothing as they don’t care and give generic responses.. signing off ArcanumLove
It’s time for games like this to die
by Kevins6n on 2018/03/19 12:54
I’ve play GOW for 18 months and the developers have turned it into a complete money grab. It’s an interesting marketing test to see how much a small group of people will pay to play a game and “beat” everyone else. You will spend at least $1000 a year if you truly want to win something, much more if you want to be the best. I play on and off, not everyday, and use 30 day peace shields to prevent midnight raids. But after setting my shield on 3 March, I was completely annihilated on the 4th?!? I’m done with glitches; that complete loss cost me hundreds of $$. Trillions of troops gone. My hero can’t be revived because the other player used ultimate execution and my player can’t be resurrected when that happens. That was the last straw, I’m contacting Apple for a refund and filing a complaint against Machine Zone and the seller. Stay away from this game, far away.
Game Of War. (CatLee)
by CathyLee21 on 2018/02/27 22:48
I love this game! It's so much fun to chat and become friends with people from all over the world! And the battles are awesome, along with killing monsters! It can cost you money if your not patient, but you can get by with spending little or none like me :) You have to try this game! This is a game of strategy, you actually have to think to play it unlike some others that have you just sit like a zombie with no mind at all! Just an update to my first review...I had played this game for a very, very long time! However I had to leave it due to all the money I had to spend in order to keep up with everyone else upgrading! It was a good game to meet great people on! But unless you have lots of money to throw away and lots of time to spend on this game I suggest you look somewhere else for entertainment!
GoW-the biggest $$$$$ trap ever
by DiGeister64 on 2017/08/05 15:11
I played GoW for 2 years, grew with the game, took over a clan as leader... now I avoid this game like the plague it is. To keep from having others attack you and take everything from your supplies to your hero, you'll need to stay shielded. To stay shielded you'll need shields, and they cost. You can earn some, but not enough to stay safe. If you don't and just get zeroed, you'll likely be talked to by your leader about not bringing the attention to the hive, or kicked out of the clan to survive alone. It's all about the money. Money in exchange for the latest research and skills ladder they build (expect these regularly), money for shields, money for... everything. One of my players racked up $10,000 in debt in one year on this game, and he was a modest spender. If you're not rich, this isn't the game for you. I had to go cold turkey and just walk away.
Can't succeed at this game without going broke.
by :()$&@ on 2017/09/16 17:45
I used to play years ago and did great and belong to a top team. I was a level four and enjoyed playing. Than my IPad broke. I recently got a new one and downloaded the game and my profile. I had thousands of chests and upgrades from my city just hanging out. Everything was gone so I put up a week long shield and used all the stuff that had accumulated to build and upgrade for the week. Right when my shield expired I was attacked, destroyed and my hero taken. There are just to many massive players who spend tons of money, to accomplish anything in this game. You work all hard at it and ultimately become a farm for bigger fish. There should be some kind of levels or something, how do you defend when you're a level 18 city and a level 80 comes along and wipes the floor with you? No fun, not worth the time...
A big thumbs down
by Ts246 on 2017/11/30 21:46
MZ hasn’t even attempted to fix this game, all they care about is taking your money and giving you crap in return. Customer support, except for canned messages, is non existent. I wish there was a lower rating. MZ has been more concerned with making big money, than with the product they put out. They continuously add items for you to buy that make the items you just bought obsolete. The program is poorly written, dumps the players many times every day and the lag time is terrible. When you go to battle you get dumped or the game freezes and when you get back, you have been defeated and lose much of your investment. Knowing what I know now, I wish I had never downloaded this game. Ps: they tell you it's free but the only thing that's free is downloading the game, after that they have it set up so you must spend hundreds of $$ to play.
Might as well just flush $$$$$$$ down the toilet…….
by Dirtè on 2017/08/06 19:29
Unless you do nothing but spend money in this game, you are destined to lose. Sometimes MZ (the developers) will drop your shield while you’re sleeping, and in turn lose all your troops/power. Played for a year, spent around $1200……last night they must’ve dropped my shield…..woke up completely dead (yet somehow my shield was still active; Hmmmm - money making scheme?) Basically, last night I lost $1200 with nothing to show. With heavy hitters spending $50k+++++ on it, just expect to spend money and be killed. If I’d known this from the start, never would have downloaded it (don’t even get me started on the CONSTANT updates they do, so you’re forced to spend more money to keep up). Sooooo, DO NOT DOWNLOAD/PLAY this game…..you will hate yourself for it later on, and will have a much lower figure on your bank statement.
Always was pay to win

To all the people saying it used to be play to win...it's always been pay to win. If you've been playing long enough you'd know that back in the day (at least when I first spent money) it would cost at least $1,000 to get tier 4 troops and good gear. The cost hasn't changed other than if you wait a week you can max out your account for like $30. The people in your alliance make it fun. Want to destroy people? Spend $1,000 or more a month, want to trap, spend $200 a month. Research isn't as important anymore as good gear and a ton of troops are. It used to be that with the right research you would ruin the day for the biggest spenders. Now you have to max research, current gear and more troops than the galaxy has particles
Incredible Masterpiece

I have been playing for two years and whenever I pick up my phone I am drawn to this app. It always has something new to offer. Had some problems learning at first but now I am a little better. I am not gonna lie, the more you spend, the better you will get faster, but if your in an alliance that can not take itself way to seriously and care about the people inside it, you will have a lot of fun. You have to be active. This is not something you put down for five days and cone back to. People are depending on you to do your part so millennials and x'er's don't apply😀! Just kidding.
Extremely frustrating
by Fhzdjncxxh on 2017/10/31 03:04
I started this game back when a level 21 stronghold was the best anyone had, and that's when this game was the most fun. You didn't have to spend a ton of money to actually make progress. Now it's 2017 the day before Halloween and the stronghold level is 300 and the game has lost everything that made it fun. Don't get me wrong I'm willing to spend a little money here and there but it's absolutely ridiculous at this point, don't even bother with this game. Also almost everyone is afraid to drop their shield because they'll get zeroed by someone who spent more money then they did, and no one wants to lose their investments hence the shielding. MZ if your reading this which I doubt, just stop now no more update designed to take people's money, we cant stand it anymore.

I played this game for 3 years, started when building cap was 21. Now we’re at 950 I believe, and the only way to stay up on it is to drop(if your lucky) is a 100 a week. If you wait till that cap drops to a 20$ pack, they don’t include one of the umpteen hundred ridiculous items you need to upgrade each type of building. So in the end, your always stuck behind. My main account is sitting out 1.37kt gold, and troops look more like 247 mmmttttttt% boosts and what not. Developers have lost site of wha made this game fun. If I were you I’d move on to something else. I’ve personally gone to Kingdoms of Heckfire. Yea..it still has a shop and what not, but a 5 dollar pack here and there is more then enough to help you stay on top of it, but at the same time completely not necessary. Move along, nothing to see here.
Don't download...

I'm an uber rational, careful spender. Peaceful woman. New mother. Serial budgeter (with a fat account, still, frugal...). Seriously. If somebody told me the amount of money I'd spend on GOW a year ago, I would never believe. In two months I had spent four figures and then - in a split second of rational thinking - I asked MZ to kill my account rather than sell it or give it away. That game is super fun, terribly addictive and unbelievably expensive. You'll likely meet great people who you'll fall in love with. You will think about this game ALL THE TIME. You will check every hour if there's a rally going on to join in and have fun... And you'll spend your kids college fund... I left in May and I still have an urge to log in and start a new account just to check on my alliance mates and see where they are. Anyone here from Calandria? Any updates? Sheesh...
Constant charge issues!
by IrritatedConsumer on 2017/08/13 07:28
I enjoy playing the game but yes MZ is constantly coming up with high dollar packs required to progress through the game then when you buy packs you better watch your charges very closely. Itunes or MZ seems to wait days before charging your account and other times it's charged immediately! So when you buy a pack suddenly you'll find charges for 2 packs and if you don't watch your account closely you won't notice it..even after contacting support and giving them the dates and charges to my account they continue to tell me it's a delay charge for up to 10 days! Sometimes it is delayed but I watched every charge closely and I was being double charged on certain instances. I say watch your account closely. Good luck!
Money pit
by Jblair41 on 2017/08/10 13:09
Gow is a great game, or at least it used to be before it turned into a money pit. To stay competitive and up to date, takes at least $100 a week. You used to be able to play at a decent level without having to spend at all, but now in order to do almost anything worth your time, you have to be completely up to date. If you have not started playing, DON'T. If you haven't spent money yet, Delete the app now before you are lured into MZ's trap. There are far to many variations of this game from other developers to warrant spending anything on this game, unless you are already hooked and invested in this game, as many of us who have been playing for a very long time are.
I used to love this game 😔
by Cspete on 2018/03/27 00:02
I have played this game since the very beginning. Took forever to build and grow but I loved logging on and chatting with my alliance friends and battling. But things are very different now.....A lot of people have already noticed that the game is not the same anymore. It really is all about the money. Before, you could gain items from battling or attacking monsters that would enable you to take the next step but now you can’t get any new buildings unless you spend at least $100 bucks everytime. I was good for two years..didn’t spend any real money....now I spent more than I would like to say 😒 all my friends have left the game already and I feel like I’m holding on because I invested....it’s time to leave....it’s not worth it anymore...
This game is a scam
by Bahzad123456 on 2017/10/19 15:54
This game is a complete scam, other than taking your money they will not care about anything. The only good thing is the friends you make in this game. My advice is, don’t download this game, but if you do, don’t ever buy anything they offer, just stay in there and make friends. Logical issues: 1 - while this game is a money hole for mz, don’t expect to just pay a one time fee, you are expected to spend an average of $500 per day just to be able to play. 2- packs that are being sold don’t even make sense, you would have everything in a pack and just as in bedazzled you will be missing something all the time too. 3 - as soon as you touch that buy button your money is gone, no refunds and mz won’t care. 4 - what would be sold for $1000 in any given day, it will be $10 the next day. Technical issues: 1 - game crashes, freezes all the time 2 - chat freezes all the time 3 - game is slow as hell 4 - game does crazy things for no reason 5 - there is no technical support, whatever you tell them, they will still give you no answer. Who am I? I have played this game for over a year, one of the top and was famous in the game, my game name is deepimp4ct, you can ask around.
DO NOT PLAY
by 38:'k&/!2 on 2017/08/08 19:36
I started the game near its beginning. It was the first of its kind, it was such a fun game to play. It's always been pay to play, but in the beginning you could become powerful without paying... just took time. Now, the game has made a complete 180. Resource tiles are useless now because the requirements to upgrade buildings or do research and train troops are outrageous. For example, a tile may have a few million resources on it, but to train a good amount of troops, you will need at least 5TT resources... 5 Trillion Trillion resources... And now, they have new research that cannot be completed without buying... IT IS LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO ADVANCE IN THESE NEW RESEARCHES FOR TROOPS WITHOUT BUYING BECAUSE THE REQUIREMENTS ARE ONLY FOUND IN PACKS. People spend 1,000s of dollars per week to be good. People have dropped 100k's and even a million dollars to be the best. That is unbelievable. The statistics are insane now, with people having gear that gives them BT% attack... unbelievable. And not to mention terrible graphics and game lag. The only thing good about the game is the social aspect. Have made some great friends throughout my time playing . My advice... unless you want to spend your hard-earned money on a digital game, DO NOT DOWNLOAD
