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

I hope they sue this lame game

Soo boring and lame. Waste of time. Why requirements though! Stupid and dumb. Get rid of this stupid game.
complete trash
by BloopyDoops on 2017/07/24 15:59
boring, repetitive, money-hungry, unoriginal. those adjectives sum it up.
False advertising- Money pit!
by Some good game!!!! on 2017/07/24 15:57
I've played for a few years and I will say it was a great game back in the day(like 3 years ago) how ever the game slowly got worse. For starters the games loading is slow, servers incredibly laggy, and trashy graphics( not as advertised AT ALL YOULL THINK YOU GOT THE WRONG APP) so not only scammers/lairs they are crooks as well. I bought a pack for 10$( because no way I was gonna be one of those guys that spends 1000s of $$$$ a day) and I didn't get my stuff. I contacted MZ and I get this crappy deal that says spend 100$ on this pack and get 100K extra gold which gets you no where once you reach lvl 21. And when you are lvl 21 you have to spend 50$-10,000$ a upgrade depending on the upgrade. (Some upgrades take a life time! NO JOKE. Do the math of 800billion days and find out😱) so not only will this game make the Trumps of the world broke, it will also take a couple people's life's to finish your upgrade.( I guess your heir to the throne will have to take over- like your great great great grandson might see it finish) and the worse part is these big money spenders( probably Trump and Obama) will port right beside you and launch a attack taking all your resources( which is how Obama is rich in the first place 😄 just saying) and then executing your hero giving them perks and leaving you broke with most the money you spent gone. If you spent money to max EVERYTHING out you would be unstoppable for a day until the next Packs role out. It takes as much money as the global warming people want to play this game(20Trillion$$$$$) NOT RECOMMENDED👎👎👎👎

Decent game but...
by Purewop on 2017/07/24 15:40
So it's a good idea, very addictive, lots of adrenaline but MZ obviously and purposely creates issues in the game outside of your control. During all that adrenaline, in a fight (which is the entire reason to grow and play), MZ will have serious delay, known as lag. This game is all about timing if you want to be big or a trap. Waiting till the last minute to surprise your opponent...which is how you win, and what they recommend you not to do. Why you ask? Because they cannot guarantee that their servers will function properly, I mean really...it's a computer and likely built in to fail so you spend more. Oh they blame it on your internet service and some of you actually may have that issue..I however am a network engineer, I run programs that monitor this and know it is not true! So good luck is all I can say... A another year playing and it's gotten even worse! This game used to be about skill it's only a spenders game, who has the biggest wallet. I believe they are purposely closing this game down, don't waste your money. Anything you buy will be obsolete in days. New everything comes weekly...

by Gsrev on 2014/01/26 04:55
A lot of grinding in this game. The game is fun but as you level up higher, each buildings takes longer to upgrade. You will go from 5 mn wait time to hours and finally days. Let's not mention you risked getting attacked by other players making you restart all over again. The best choice is to join an alliance, and ask them to help you upgrade. Alliance also offer protection since higher ranked alliance won't get attacked often. Sometimes other alliances will join forces to control a section of the kingdom which is pretty huge. The game is very detailed and there's a lot of politics in the game. People take it a bit too seriously. I gave it 4 star on how detailed and addictive it is. It could've been 5 stars if weren't for the fact that you got to pay money in order to be at the top. Nothing would be wrong but everything is expensive in this game. $100 for a couple of in-game gold? Not really worth it if you ask me. No wonder people take this game seriously after investing so much it only makes sense. On the plus side if you join an alliance with a leader that do spend money, you get extra gifts that you wouldn't have had you been a regular player. In conclusion joining an alliance is a must and actually make the game much more fun. The way people interact in the game really make the game for me. It's worth a download and you spend a lot of time in it. Very good and detailed game
Game of War- Review
by Cool ouzo on 2015/08/17 08:48
Game of War is a very unique, strategic-based app that requires the best of patience in people and usually results in having good rewards for that; granted that this app has a total pay-to-win system, it's still possible to play this app without paying a penny. Seemingly enough, the app works well (occasional crashes) but never has any major "bugs" or "viruses". The game is graphically not too bad, for an app, it's considered mediocre. If you're biased on Clash of Clans or Boom Beach or any birds-eye view app, then you'll surely enjoy this app as it passes off time rather than other apps that take time- this app, can be an entertainment user. To get to the cons of this app, I'll start off by saying that the pay-to-win is incredibly advertised throughout the app- you'll never be able to get rid of it (even when you buy a pack) and it'll stick with you till you delete it. This is something I can't really get into, and I don't see why it's a MUST to continue advertising; the final con I have is that there's a lot of time to be put into this app. A LOT of time. You're going to have to pay lots of attention to focusing on your quests and journeys if you're looking to get far. Waiting to become better will not make you better. PLAYING IS WINNING! In all, Game of War: Fire Age, is a 4.5/5 for me and I recommend it to anyone who's serious about these games and needs some serious time burners.
Great Game but VERY TRICKY too!!!
by Mitch000000 on 2016/05/20 11:38
I love playing this game. It's very interesting, challenging and competitive. HOWEVER, this game is about money; getting money from the people who is playing. My bad experiences: This happened to me more than one time, and I'm starting to believe the game is setup to do this to us so we can spend more money to rebuild of city. It takes a lot speedups and resources to train troops especially if they are high power troops. To protect your troops while you are not on the game, you will have to use a shield on your city. When I had low power troops, I put a shield on my city for 3 days. When I woke up, my troops were attacked, killed and hospitalized; but I wonder how when I had a shield. Recently, I had millions of high power troops that I spent billions of resources on and 100's of hours of speedups on. I then activated a 3 day shield on my city to protect them. I logged off the game. When I returned, all my troops were attached and killed. I contacted the help center and they insulted me by crediting with some things that I could have got on my own. These actions make me believe that this game gets you attacked purposely, so you can spend more money to rebuild after being attacked badly by power players. My advice to you if you are interested in playing is: DO NOT SOEND ANY MONEY because it will make you emotional after being wrongly attacked.
What a great game
by dreamerkoh on 2015/01/11 08:43
You'll need to form alliances within Game of War, teaming up with other countries and sharing resources and supplies. These aren't always the most trustworthy agreements - sometimes their king will attempt to overtake yours in the name of leadership. However, a good Alliance is nice to have, especially when you're crushing a rogue country under your boot, making them pay for dastardly deeds and displaying true power. With Game of War, though, it takes a while to get there. Like the best MMOs, or "grind-fests," it takes time and perhaps money to build a nation. Don't expect to jump in and have your ideal kingdom in minutes. Thankfully, the investment is worth it. Machine Zone has a great gameplay system where it's relatively easy to select your resources and take your kingdom and soldier to new heights. Crafting new weapons is a delight, as you can see how they take effect in the game's real-time battles. The scope of these battles is impressive, especially if you're a fan of epic fights. Some more intimate one-on-one encounters for leadership would've been nice, but the game does fine without them. Game of War looks good. You can see how your kingdom's growth is coming along, while keeping an eye open for neighboring allies - or enemies - with ease. However, this game is best played on an iPad, as it may be too hard to navigate on a tinier iPhone screen.
Game of War personal view
by Dragonhubter on 2017/04/07 16:56
Hi, in the time I have been playing Game of War, I have realized that it can become very addictive really fast. At the same time you have the opportunity to join other alliances, meat New and great people from alliances, and over all just have a tun of fun. The only thinking I would want to see different that would personally help me out, and a lot of smaller players also is if like for one 48 hour time a month, they have the opportunity to buy the biggest, best, and most current packs for 50 % off. If they could do that it would majorly help, and I believe that a lot more people that start out and end up quoting at a small level because they can't build up fast enough, would stay and have a better chance to grow, and then even more fun in the game. So I hope that you can consider what I have said and hopefully find a way to make the highest packs available for a short time once a month for 50% off, it would help every one and in the long run you would as a company would benefit by a lot more sales. You would in the long run be making a little more money at the same time as helping us. Thanks for the fun gaming opportunity and I hope if you are reading this trying to decide if you want to get it, do. You will love it, and enjoy it all. Happy gaming. Sincerely Dragonhubter.
Fun at first, then pointless
by LV1220 on 2013/08/03 05:18
Like everyone else, I thought this game was incredible when it was released. More strategic than Clash of Clans and more detailed. The build rate and upgrades were exciting and I couldn't put down my phone for two days. Then, like every game of this type, it slowed down once I became too high-leveled. Worse though is that the rest of the game doesn't provide enough motivation to deal with the slow pace. Here's a secret: You will NOT become the top player unless you drop some serious real money. Even worse, you will get consistently steam-rolled by stronger players and alliances that were beta-testers and have 20 days of playing behind them. Also frustrating to some is that there aren't any serious consequences to being defeated. Your city and buildings cannot be destroyed. All that happens is you lose your supply of resources, whatever city defenses you have, troops, and maybe your hero. The only real consequence is that it takes a while to restock all your supplies and rebuild your army. Then it's back to Groundhog Day. If you want a social experience, then this game will still satisfy. The Alliance structure encourages people to work together. For strategy game enthusiasts though, it's too simplistic. The game doesn't really seem to go anywhere or accomplish anything more than being a game-oriented chat room. Some may still find it fun months from now, but after over a week of playing, I'm too bored to continue.

Game of War, in my opinion, is a pretty addicting game. I've been playing it for a few months now and haven't found any other game that I enjoy playing as much as I enjoy GOW. Unlike all the other games, those similar to GOW, that I've played, they have only taken your troops as your power. In GOW, however, it is quite different. Not only do your troops add to your power, but so does doing research and upgrading buildings. In this game, doing research is absolute key, I've found. It not only leads to massive amounts of power, but boosts all your things like troop health, attack, and defense. Resource production is increased, march speeds and many other things can also be greatly improved with research. I tell all new people to the game, focus on research. You want an army, yes, but you need the boosts from research and cores if you don't want to be slaughtered when you attack or you are attacked. It also helps if you keep all your buildings at the same level as you upgrade your stronghold to the next level because it makes it much easier the more you progress through the game, I know that from experience. Also, they provide some awesome packs. Even the $5 you can buy when you first start off can be very useful. But be warned, when you buy a pack, it is really hard to stop yourself from wanting to buy another one!!!
Fun

This game is a lot of fun but it is very time consuming. It does lag a lot sometimes and crashes quite a bit. It is a very addicting game so be warned lol. I wished they would have an open all button for the treasure chests it takes up a lot of time to just open each one and if you have multiple chests it can take forever. Hoping they can add a solution for this. You can buy an account from someone who is selling the account could already be ready to go. The time for research is a bit extensive and long... And takes loads of RSS aka resources to build, train troops, and research. I think the merging of kingdoms is a really bad idea I have experienced one and it is the worst. They give you the options to buy packs but that is like a huge hole in your pocket. You can join the game and if you learn it and learn to strategize correctly you can build up your account without spending money. Gain power and join a good alliance that has a high gift level you can get a lot of gifts and help yourself grow. Do not allow this game to take priority over your life that's the best advice I can give you! Overall it is a very fun game to play in your down time. You can meet some great people of all ages the chatting is really awesome. Have fun with this game if you play it just remember that it is after all only a game don't get wrapped up in it like most people do. Have fun! Rose
Very Fun!

GoW is a very fun game to play. I always wondered what the attraction is for one of these MMORPGs. Now I know. I have all but forgotten my other games and apps on my phone. I rarely even watch TV anymore because I would rather spend my time playing this game. It isn't just the game itself that is fun, it is the people you meet in this virtual world who are the true entertainment. You gain significant benefits for being part of an alliance, and choosing one with other active players is very important as they will help you and look out for your "empire" as you grow. If I love the game so much, why four stars? Although you can play the game for free, you will find, after the first couple of weeks, that you need to spend to grow faster. I have no problem with that, as the developers have to be compensated for the time they spent making the game. I would have spent more buying a console and games than what it takes here. There are people in my alliance who have been playing for months without spending huge sums of money. But to grow into the higher ranks of power in this game requires very large investments. So if you are looking for a social game and enjoy the interactions, you will enjoy this game immensely. If you want to be a major player and love being the biggest and baddest, this requires more than skill, it requires vast amounts of time and money. Try it and enjoy!
Pros and Cons
by 466Augustus on 2015/09/16 09:36
This game is extremely addictive. Alliance/kingdom chats give you a opportunity to converse and connect with everyone you're playing with. It's very complex, unlike most apps which is great. However there are a couple downsides. I play on a iPhone 5s and while I don't experience too many problems, the ones I do notice could be devastating to anyone that has a lot of time/money into this game. This mainly revolves around shielding. A few times now I've had to reboot the game in the middle of a KVK KE as it hasn't allowed me to apply a shield. This tends to happen as my marches sometimes get stuck at their location. I've also purchased a pack in the past and was not given the bonus gold from it. I messaged MZ but they were not helpful at all. My biggest issue however is the fact that they fail to put out a decent Silver pack. Silver is the hardest rss to find and the tiles you gather from offer next to nothing. I'd also like to see them merge a few kingdoms together. A lot of them have a low population and there's not much action going on, which becomes boring. Please stop making new kingdoms so regularly and focus a little attention to the low population kingdoms please MZ! Over all...a great game with a few bugs to work out. I play constantly and have dumped in over $1000 but it's been a lot of fun and I've made some great friends doing so.
Beware! Addicting yet developer greed
by Twocastles on 2016/11/08 22:42
The game was fun to play, and I found myself buying pack after pack in my desire to grow. Then it finally dawned on me. I'm dropping hundreds on a pointless game that I'll never be "the best" at and can't keep up with. MZ makes changes so often. Every time I was on the cusp of being competitive they released something stronger. It's never ending and the cost to grow higher and higher is astounding. People are spending thousands on this game, in many cases they don't have that kind of disposable income. And I feel horrible for spending a couple hundred. Anyhow. It's addicting. To start out is annoying. They literally charge you for everything. You want to go to the dungeon? You have to buy a one time use key. So every time you want to go to the dungeon, you have to pay. It used to have nice drops in the dungeon. Now the drops are weak until you get beyond level 6. But to make it that far you need good gear. Of. Purse you have to pay for a CHANCE to get those. There hasn't been prospector chests in well over a month, so if you don't have that set, you can't get it until the next time they deem it worthy. Arrrghh! It's frustrating. Leave! Leave now! Do NOT play this game or any other pay to play. Better off buying a PS3 or XBOX or PC and get games for those. Don't fret about spending $50 on a game either. Because if you play these types of pay to play games, you'll drop $50 a day easy.
Love the Game But Needs Imporvement
by SpellMaestro on 2016/12/02 01:54
This is a great game in so many ways. Fun people, and all kinds of way to build a monster of an avatar. I have a few issues that bother me: 1) Almost impossible to play without WiFi. I'm a Rank 4 in my Alliance - which means I have to make sure the Alliance Help is being supported and also manage resource deliveries along with coordinate attacks among other things. The chat never loads up without WiFi and the Alliance section doesn't load up with updates, even my bonus gifts can't Open without wifi. This needs to be improved ASAP. I can't even put up a Peace Shield without WiFi. This is a Flaw until fixed. This game requires hundreds of dollars just to be competitive, yet they can't fix this issue? People are going to revolt until this issue is fixed. 2) I feel sorry for the players who don't have the hundreds to sink into this game just to protect themselves from the bigger players AND grow. I have no problem sinking money into a game, but I see a lot of folks in the Alliance struggling to build their Power high enough to contribute to coordinated attacks and also defend themselves and the Alliance. You can't even open up vital buildings unless you purchase enough gold using real money. I'm hoping the Devs find solutions to these obvious and growing problems with Game of War
Laggy / Poor Customer Service
by Fire K34 on 2015/12/03 21:12
I have been playing this game for a few years now, since it was released. Initially is was a great game, addictive but however that has changed in the past year. The game has become very laggy, slow and unresponsive leading to losses in the game that may take either a lot of time to repair or a lot of money. I have dealt with this numerous times and have put in multiple complaints regarding how bad it has become. I have lost items in my inventory, have suffered losses due to game lag, marches not returning, getting booted while in a war, those are just a few examples but the list goes on. What makes matters worse is the customer service.... It is extremely horrible. They don't respond 80% of the time and when they do, the response is generic regardless of the problem. They ask for screen shots of a lot of issues but when provided they don't respond leaving a lot of issues unresolved. Recently MZ has made announcements of the game being revamped and being fixed, DONT believe them!!! The game is slower than ever, still boots me off, all they changed was offers in the packages they sell..... They have their priorities screwed up and are just wanting people to pump more money rather than actually fixing the game issues. I don't recommend this game, if you are still a player I recommend getting together and boycotting until they make a true effort to fixing the issues and make this game fun to play again.
Horribly one sided game
by Momo2203467 on 2014/12/30 13:09
This is the first review I've ever written on any game period. I would like to start off by saying this game is addicting. It has fun mechanics that would make for some awesome gameplay. To say it's one sided is completely an understatement. I played this game for months about a year ago. Took a long time to progress to SH 17 with just a little money spending. Even back then there were big spenders who took the fun out of the game. Having the capability of a single player being able to wipe out an entire alliance of SH 15 and up is utterly ridiculous. Higher level players in larger alliances farm the smaller ones constantly. There is no room to grow unless you hide and buy peace shield after peace shield. I quit almost a year ago because of alliances just farming all the lower players constantly. Decided to give it another run a day ago. BIG MISTAKE. I activated my old level 17 SH account and used all speed boosts to get my researching up and heal all my troops back. It literally took 1 day for a max level player with 3 billion power to teleport in and farm the entire alliance I joined. No resources, no troops, no traps, and a hero in yet another prison. Don't waste your time with this game unless you're willing to spend ALOT of money to be competitive. The developers know the big spenders will keep spending and have tailored the game to keep them around instead of making any progress toward bringing in new players and keeping them.
My experience
by Ebonywarriorcats on 2014/02/23 00:12
I've been playing this game for over 100 days. At first I loved the game I made it all the way to lvl 15 with the lvl cap being 21. But then I started experiencing harassment from other players users with superiority complexes that think its funny to pick on people and abuse the game, they mailed me constantly, probably at least 20 members of one group, most of it was just random BS but some of it was personal and hurtful, this has gone on for days I can't chat in kingdom chat I get told to just go play something else if I don't like it, when I log in to play my mail box is going off constantly I changed my player name but they figured out who I was and continue to bomb my mail box my whole game experience has been so tarnished I don't think I even want to play anymore and certainly will not recommend any one I know subject themselves to such relentless bulling. Also when ever I have written in to support it takes weeks for them to respond and nothing ever gets done about any of it I usually get a generic response that doesn't resolve anything at al, no compensation, no real info that's useful and no penalty to the "problem" users that abuse the game. And this also applies to glitch issues nothing has ever been done, I get " sorry for the inconvenience we will look into it" or " you have to collect the Athena's gift before it expires" when the issue was that the thing never appeared until after it was expired. :( not impressed at all
False advertising and a terrible game.
by Carsegna on 2014/10/29 03:51
Alright so I saw this games ad for awhile now and finally decided to se its worth. All I can say Is that I was disappointed by everything. First off, the advertising for this game was completely misleading. What they use for the previews aren't even in the game. It's simply to make it look better. Second, the actual quality of the game can compare to that of something that would run on one of the old original iOS devices. I'm talking original iPod graphics and engine. I will admit that it kinda looked interesting at first. However once you get farther into the game. It is extremely boring and would more closely represent a social network for ten year old boys than an actual iOS game, Even for a free game. But what really put the nail in the coffin for me personally was the fact that when you go to attack another player, its more of if you have more numbers than the opposing player than actual strategy. When they were marketing this game they promised strategy. Which there is a significant lack of in this game. It doesn't mater where you place your structures because if the attacking player has more numbers it is considered an automatic win. If you coming from games like clash you'll also be disappointed to hear that their is no troop placement or command. Just numbers. So in my honest opinion this is disgrace to your purchases tab. I hope you'll take my advice and find some other mobile game to play.
A total divestment! Nothing free about it!
by Oneupmike/G'Clan on 2017/07/15 06:11
I started a little over 3 years ago. Enjoyed it but spent more than I should have on an app...thousands! It was still fun because it moved slow enough to play, pay, and contemplate. The social aspect is great also. I miss those days of GoW gaming. As many of the single star reviews state...this is a money pit. There's NO WAY to play WITHOUT paying. The game changes so fast you are going to have to spend constantly to just be a person who can donate troops to a rally. The requirements to advance in levels change all the time also. So you accumulate items, gear, resources, etc that end up rotting in your inventory...waste. There were some aspects in the early GoW days that you could at least spend a minimal amount a year and have fun...for those that played then...it was called "trapping". You can't even do that without spending a ton. It really is sad to see what this game has turned into. Please don't waste your money (or go into debt!!!) on this game. Just a word of wisdom...if you see an app in top grossing section of your App Store, and it's listed as "free"...it ISN'T. There have been plenty who have spent on this game and regret it to keep it in the top for awhile. It is slowly declining because of MZ's greed. Just don't play. I gave it 2 stars because of the social aspect...I have met some great people here. Avoid MOBILE STRIKE, also...same maker!
Great game/worst customer service
by Kimster112 on 2015/09/20 23:40
I love this game when it actually works or let's you log on, and the people you meet on here are the best. If you're looking for a stable platform, reliable game play, any sort of customer service or tech support then this is not the game for you. MZ by far has the worst customer service I've ever had the misfortune of dealing with. They don't care how much time or money you put into the game. The only thing they care about is how much more money they can squeeze out of you. Nothing that happens in the game is ever their fault: like being kicked during a rally, shields dropping early, lags that are so bad you don't know you're being attacked until it's to late, people porting in but not showing up on your screen, cores not activating when you use presets, etc. There are so many issues with this game and no matter how many people complain about them MZ does nothing to rectify them or compensate people who lose literally hundreds of dollars because of them. They just keep add more stuff to make more money. When you send a ticket in because of an issue, you'll get the same canned response they send everyone telling you it's your device, Internet connection anything except for their programming. It's sad to see how many dead cities are littering kingdoms because of MZ. Unless you're willing to spend thousands of dollars on a game, you won't last that long. The download may be free but that's about it.
Absolutely NOT a free game
by Madman Fury on 2016/11/20 22:49
Don't get me wrong, I will pitch in a little money to fund developers to create awesome. Games, but here is a letter I wrote to the developers. I played for over three years. I came back to see if anything had changed. Yup! They want more money... Well, I tried to come back. But there are no two ways around this game. You must pay to play. To unlock basic features you have to buy a pack. I was ok with buying a $5 pack. But then it didn't come with all you stated it would. O gift mode. No garrison plot unlock. Still can't buy a DBC, even though I go to the sales every time it comes on. I even wrote to you about it. You couldn't even answer the problem. First you put in a standard cut and paste response that did. To address my question. When I wrote back I got a simpl,e...I don't know. Then why are these people allowed to help at the help desk. So, why continue to call yourself a free to play game. There is no way to play for free and succeed. This will be my review as well... I saw that y'all were the number one free to play revenue game last year. That's a shame. I got 50,000 of 2 different chests. All I could craft out of those 100k chests, a head piece for each armor...that really blows chunks! Good luck! These are typical reviews and rants that I hear daily on line in the game. Don't even begin to play unless you have a few extra 10's of thousanfpds of dollars wasting away. Or you WILL NOT SUCCEED!!! DEFINITELY A BUYER OR PLAYER BEWARE GAME!!

Honestly, They should give an option of less than a star or none at all for games like GoW. Don't get me wrong, this game started off great: I enjoyed building my city, making friends, I invested my money and time to support my alliance and NOW it seems that it was for nothing. GoW is no longer playable with the flood of weekly new upgrades, the increased glitches and lag times, the devaluing of my account, useless items, and increased expense. Unless you are willing to spend hundreds a week and thousands a month, it may be against your best interest to play. If I could change the fact that I ever invested a penny in this game, I would. The people you meet in game are great, but I stopped spending/playing back in December, and wish I had made that decision sooner. As someone who invested thousands into this game, the numerous updates became impossible to keep up with. My account that was one of the best in the Kingdom, based on power and size, and it became obsolete just like that. I would not recommend this game, and if you've taken time to read this and the numerous other honest reviews, you should head warning and stay away - unless you have an indispensable cash flow because you'll need it to keep up with the 1% of players that are still willing to pay; everyone else is packing their bags and calling quits. Less activity, more dead accounts.. not so fun. Good job, MZ! You've really outdone yourselves this time. 👏 .. 👏 .. 👏
Worst customer service..huge scam
by Horrible scam on 2014/08/24 03:47
I have 2 t4 accts in this game which cost thousands of dollars to build. 4 days ago I received a message stating "server under maintenance. Please try again after a while". Since this game always has server issues I figured it would be fixed within the hour. I still do not have access to my acct and it has been attacked and I've lost everything. I've mailed MZ at least 100 times asking them to fix the issue , tried everything they have asked me to do and obviously it's an issue on their side. When I asked them to shield my account so I wouldn't lose everything they ignored me then that night it was hit. My last message I received from them 2 days ago said that they would be forwarding my issue to the developers to fix the issue. I can not get anyone from mz to reply to me or give me even an update on the issue. I would advise everyone to not spend any more money in this game because this could happen to anyone. you will lose everything and Mz will not do anything to help you, they don't even have the decency to respond to you. they will do anything to get your money but will not do anything to help you when they screw up. I'm still waiting for my reply of what they plan on doing to go forward in reimbursing me but sadly I hVe a strong feeling I will not be getting any kind of reply from them. Do not play the game do not spend your money. It's the worst kind of scam.
Ridiculous
by Annabear_ on 2015/07/07 05:02
First off I like this game. I really do it's neat and well organize with certain things. However, the developers have develop a game that they could feed off from people's wallet. The packs that they provide not only cost good amount of money, but every time you purchase, it doubles up the price until you hit a hundred. Yeah they design this pretty well so they could make money. I understand business is all about money, but this is ridiculous. Not only that, the options in the game with building, researching or training, especially digging takes 100 days until you complete it. Wow. I have contacted MZ and they have said it is on how player plays the game. Now tell me this, the only way a player will be able to speed up in those areas will be to spend more cash from their pocket. This is a game for your customers to enjoy. But the only customers you guys will have later on are those who are willing to spend thousands of dollars in this game. You will loose customers if this continue. Everything about this game cost money no matter how much you guys explain this to anyone. It's design well. The developers sure are smart and greedy. But that's just my personal opinion. So anyone who is not planning to spend thousands and hundreds or dollars don't even bother. Cause those who have will just annihilate you with their great power!!!
Waste of time
by Slivermonger on 2014/09/16 22:56
This game is engineered to make you pay thousands to compete. Waste of time and the developers always force 100 dollar packages on you upon login. Developers are too greedy. However, since some spendthrifts threw 10s of thousands of dollars to build up their city, they figured intelligence in the world population is declining. This game was created for profit vs user entertainment so should not be around much longer due to declining user interest. Ppl still join only to realize there is no point. Clash of clans is as fun and way cheaper and you don't NEED to buy where this game you will go nowhere unless you clear your bank account. This game is nowhere near free. Game was created to milk as much money as possible. Even with all of the money they made being a top grosser b4, game still has glitches. 9 months of daily log ins and 75 dollars later, I am still one of the weakest cities. Smh. It gets boring the stronger you get cause you either have to wait 30+ days for research or pay. Game has a serious imbalance favoring rich people or people with stolen credit cards cause too expensive. And times where I sent feedback, sometimes not positive, all of a sudden my prizes decline. Not sure if that is a coincidence. Do not play for fun either because the game is ran by the strongest person per kingdom. This game is not really about strategy. It's about size
Bad business
by K McCain on 2016/04/07 00:33
I love playing this game. However, recently I had written contact support asking if they would exchange speeds if I purchased a pack. I received a reply saying they would do that for me. I purchased a pack and sent a request to have them exchanged. I was told to please tell them exact denominations so I broke down every speed up. I received an email saying they would get the conversion done as quickly as possible. Two days later I asked how the conversion was going. I got a reply saying this was no longer available. I wrote a couple more times asking why they would tell me yes, then have me break down each speed up, then tell me no. I got a reply saying it's no longer available and that they will no longer discuss this topic. If I had another concern to make a new request. I was extremely disappointed as I've spend a lot of money on this game. So I contacted apple and without questions, they refunded my money. I can't thank Apple enough. They took one look at my emails from mz and refunded my money in less than 24 hours. Be very careful what their support tells you, as they will say whatever you want to get you to buy then never fulfill their commitment. I'm very disappointed and will never purchase from them again. It's a great game but very poor customer service.
Pay to be surrounded by jerks
by Gamer4Life0713 on 2017/03/23 03:15
I started playing this game about a month ago with the intention of spending no money as I was led to believe from other positive reviews. But with the constant advertising thrown in your face you start to think "just this one time" which of course is not the end of the story. You will be constantly attacked by other players with power levels in the trillions (it takes a full, strong alliance to rally against a single player with power levels that high), so you contemplate how helpful buying a pack would be to progressing your city even after a massive defeat. You can put up a peace shield around your city but don't forget what time it expires. I had been attacked literally one minute after my shield expired and I was not there babysitting my IPad. Playing the "free" game, you'd be lucky to get your power level into the high thousands, but up against players in the hundred millions and trillions, you're just feeder fish to piranhas. Don't bother gathering resources unless you intend on losing your troops to resource stalkers that would love nothing more than to boost their kill numbers. Do yourself a favor and read the most critical reviews, they are not exaggerated! Anybody who has written a positive review must either work for MZ, or have been compensated in other forms. My advice, don't get started with this "pay to play" game. You will regret investing your time and your money.
Not Buying Any More Packs!!!
by GodChaser1988 on 2017/07/15 13:55
I have been playing GoW for about a year, and I only stay for the contacts I've made in my alliance. Otherwise, this game is only nice for the people who can spend $1000 / month or more to build their empire and their alliance. The really big players in the game spend as much as $20,000 in a week. The problem is that those really big players are allowed to hit the much smaller players who can't afford to spend much on the game, and of course MZ is going to cater to the spenders. If you can't afford to spend at least $200 / month, you won't get anywhere in this game, and it's a waste of time and money. Update 7/17: 2 years now, and MZ continues to get worse and worse. If you spend the money to buy a pack today, the items you bought are useless tomorrow because MZ is releasing new things so fast, even a lot of the bigger spenders are quitting because people can't keep up with the changes. Yes you can play for free but all you have is a social FarmVille if you don't spend. At this point, MZ is releasing new stuff so fast that if you can't spend at least $1000 per month, you really can't keep up. I've finally decided to set a 30-day shield & stop buying packs. Makes me sick when I think about the fact that I've spent enough money on this game to buy a house & it means nothing now!! It's a total waste & MZ absolutely DOES NOT CARE about anything but taking your $$$!
Pay to win & game breaking glitches
by Mauler Jr. on 2016/11/27 04:50
This "free to play" game is definitely a pay to win; I paid for the $5 pack to get started and it did make the game more enjoyable for me, then I started realizing that although I was increasing my power at a decent rate, there are a handful of "alpha" clans who have trillions or billions of power per player and the only way to do this is by spending more and more money. Some of these people have dropped hundreds upon hundreds of dollars on this game and it's made them unbeatable. They get to do whatever they want and basically "bully" the little guys into staying shielded all the time, taking away from gameplay for everyone else. The biggest problem for me however, is the game breaking glitches that exist; one of my alliance members sent troops for a rally, they were all killed but his upkeep is still high and he can't put a peace shield up because it says he has troops out on offensive marches. So he just keeps getting hit over and over by those "big fish" I mentioned above, losing his hero and he can no longer play the game. He's STILL waiting on a response from MZ. It's a fun game, to a point. I just wouldn't recommend putting too much into it unless you're willing to put EVERYTHING into it and potentially be left glitched out at the end of the day.
Why not correct price
by Ikea4 on 2016/01/07 13:08
The game cost a lot of money if you want to play competitively. It can be a boat load of fun though once you get hooked. There are glitches that do happen to some and actually happened to me. That cost me a few hundred dollars and actually the fault was on MZ. They did finally manage to respond and of course did nothing to really help except give me a couple of peace shields. It should've been an insult but after two weeks when I did hear back from them, they actually sounded concerned. The point is they are improving. They aren't perfect but they care enough to keep trying do I will stick with them. They variation in the price or tax paid on the gold packs is an issue since it really does add up. Prices are the same on game but billed over $8 for a 4.99 purchase. Wife spent a lot of money and there are over $200 in these extra charges. I'm going to raise the rating I gave initially because MZ is raising the level of service. Keep up the good work guys. Update: lately they have promised events and not delivered. There have been very few kvk kill events and the events that have happened require spending to participate in. That's not fun.
This game is broken
by HavocK62 on 2015/02/25 16:27
The developer is aware and has ignored several game breaking mechanics, most recently and egregiously the embassy cheat which completely takes any fair play and competitive aspect away from the games "kingdom vs kingdom" kill events and tourneys. This game is not worth downloading at this time. Shame after playing for almost 2 years it has come to this point. Greed over quality by the developers. The T1 traps have made events boring and tedious. Embassy cheat in kill events is by far the most outlandish thing I have ever encountered in a game. Kill events state "Kill one outlander t3 troop - 40 points, kill one outlander t4 troop - 100 points." No where in this does it state "Kill your own t4 troop - 100 points." However, that's all some of these kingdoms are doing to win in kingdom vs kingdom kill events. Many kingdoms have cut off spending due to this and the lack of action by MachineZone. We have submitted many helpspot tickets and they simply just give us an automated reply, the best one was "This is part of military strategy, you should unite with your alliance members and think of ways to overcome this strategy!" Absurd, you would think they would want to fix a cheat to at least provide a level of fairness to the players. Until they fix this embassy cheat, many players will not spend another dime and will not participate in any events at all including myself, my alliance, and my kingdom.
MZ is too GREEDY
by No More $ for MZ on 2016/01/28 22:29
This is a amazing game. The features and the style of play set it apart from all of the other downloadable apps. I've been playing for a year and am totally hooked. Aside from the actual game itself, it has a social component that truly enhances the game. I have met some really great people on GOW in the past year. Unfortunately, Machine Zone (MZ) had to ruin it with their never ending greed. Despite all the ads on TV, this is not a "play for free" game. It costs money. Lots of money. I am embarrassed to tell you how many thousands of dollars I have spent on this game; but I was okay with that. Like I said, the game is awesome and a lot of fun. What has finally gotten me to the point of quitting is MZ's insatiable lust for money. It is one thing to put a price on the game and spend to achieve that level play. Quite another to do what MZ has done: constantly raising the bar to make a high level of play untenable unless you spend 10 to 20 thousand dollars. Shame on MZ for their greed. My advice to those thinking about downloading this app: DON'T DO IT!!! Even though the game itself is so much fun and you will meet some awesome people, at the end of the day you will be left with considerably less money then you started with and never achieve that level of play you were searching for and deserve.
Horrible support team.. Never Ending glitches.. And a lot of money needed to spend
by Itzzsisibabiie on 2016/08/14 12:25
The game is nice. I hate how everything with this game is all money and they're packs are expensive too. If you want to get anywhere in this game you need to buy packs. When ever I have an issue with the game I have to email them and straight away they either belittle me like I don't know what I'm talking about or they say I'm lying; which I than have to send them a whole other email stating the issue AGAIN. Personally you shouldn't handle your services like this your Motto should be the customers always right. If I could attach some of the stuff these people have said to me in their emails it's just extremely rude and customer service shouldn't be saying those things. There's ALWAYS an issue with the game, never fails. I think they think that they can't have glitches with their game because every time you bring up a glitch they sound so appalled that you would bring something like that up. Another issue was my items going missing that mind you I paid for and I told them this and they said to me if I didn't know the name of said item that it couldn't be fixed; which surprise surprise I didn't know the name so they did absolutely nothing. For the most part the game is fun and you meet great people but, if you're going to take my money and a lot of it at that then you need to step it up.
Needs Improvement
by Nightsong66 on 2016/11/30 13:30
I like the game well enough. I've been playing it since I got my smartphone about a year ago, and it's relatively enjoyable. But there's a few things that irk me: 1) Research time. It starts out small, a couple hours maybe, but then it grows to over 1000 DAYS??? I mean seriously, I thank you for the free speed-ups in the Athena's Chests, but I am not waiting practically TWO YEARS for my research to finish. 2)Teleportation. I have a love/hate relationship with this feature. I like being able to jump around and use my treasure maps, but when people attack me as soon as my shield drops (though many have given me a couple hours between the shield dropping and their first attack) and attempt to zero out my resources, and then teleport away like a coward before ANYONE in my alliance can retaliate? That's when I hate it. I have a couple other complaints, but those are two of my biggest ones. I do like the game, and for the most part, I try to play daily. It's fun, a decent city-builder, and you get to wage all-out war on (other than your alliance) a kingdom full of players. You help your alliance members with construction and research, healing their troops, and sometimes you find friends among the other players.
Fun but just way too expensive
by kfkhlf4 on 2017/04/29 15:09
It's a fun game and all but you have to spend hundreds of dollars to keep up in it. I've spent very little and am in an alliance with some big spenders but I can't help them much unless I'm willing to fork up a few hundred bucks. One of my alliance members told me he spent over $500 on one research tree. I am having fun playing it but I can't recommend it to anyone I know since it's not worth the cash. Oh and the packs that you spend money on get more expensive the more of them you buy so the first is $5 and then it only offers $10 and $20 and then it keeps getting more expensive so also keep that in mind. Edit: I caved and bought the $20 pack and now the game offers$50-$100 packs. That $20 pack did make me grow about 10 times in power but I'm still orders of magnitude below most other active players. There is a confusingly structured inferno event which makes it look like you can just buy $20 in gold and get the trillions in resources you need at the higher levels but you won't get anything until you spend at least $100. So the game is just getting more expensive. I can't recommend this game unless you're ok with spending thousands. Oh and the most common purchases list here in the App Store is definitely wrong because buying gold on its own doesn't do anything for you.
Packs
by ALANMILLER12000000 on 2017/07/23 14:27
So as I know everyone knows the only way to get good is to spend money. Nothing wrong with that you don't want to spend money play a different game. But I am one of those money spenders and I have a complaint. I just spend $200 about. And got a few packs that guarantees t8 troops so I go to the ultimate combat and forgot I needed t6 troops to continue only problem is I don't have any water shards. So I am unable to get to t8 which is a bummer because I have all t7 and 8 materials. Not much of a guarantee t8 if you can't get to them. I also contacted them and they won't even give me water shards. How money hungry are y'all seriously there are no packs with water shards how am I supposed to get them? Also to get my SH to higher levels I need my academy higher... the only way to get that is to upgrade my gear workshop and I can due to missing items. Funny thing is when I Bought the pack with the gear workshop in it it came with nothing to upgrade with. So I didn't mind it and bought a few more packs. Once I needed to upgrade my SH a few more levels and couldn't due to missing materials I got upset. Thing was the very next day a new pack came out with the items need to upgrade this building. I'm not going to spend money over and over again. PUT THE RIGHT CORRISPONDING THINGS IN PACKS.
There's a lot of commercials
by Windyboy413 on 2015/03/06 04:29
When I try to play my game peacefully the commercial of this game keeps on popping out of no where!! I just want to destroy this game because it's commercials!! Can the people who made the game please stop with the commercials I think everybody is tried of it too. I just want to report this game if anyone else is tried of the commercials please write #triedofcommercial for the title of the review. Please take off the commercials the more there are commercials the more people get tried of it and stop playing are will never start playing this game. I just downloaded this game for this report that's how mad I am. If you stop with a lot of commercials I think you can have more people playing because you can a have some commercials but not on all the game like really people. I'm just trying to say just get rid of all the commercials and put them on some games not all games the commercials are even on kids game and the lady in the commercial is showing some of her breast like really. Your going to make a child horrified!!! if I see a lot of commercials I will report you a million times please stop!! I bet when you stop you will get even more people and I would even start playing too!! PLEASE STOP! That all and thank you for reading. I'm giving a 1 star sorry I could give a 5 star in the future maybe if you stop with the commercials. That's all
An ILAnd of stupidity in a sea of greed.
by Amused time killers on 2014/08/16 08:44
I have been playing since last November when it WAS a really cool strategy and fighting game. Sure the guys willing to pay real money got built up a little faster but with patience and a good alliance you could do well. Now they make so many POINTLESS events that don't do anything but make the developer money. Organized good alliances cannot win gold anymore or win a tiny amount so that if you want to grow you almost HAVE to purchase with real money. Simple war game with kill events each weekend has morphed into who can build the most troops wearing the color green on a Tuesday if the month has an even number of days. (Sure a slight embellishment for effect, but not far from the truth). Events are poorly thought out. Game has added so many superfluous features that it takes forever to load and finally when you play it is many times slow and glitchy. Original game was a simple fast corvette. fun to play, quick and easy to maneuver. Now it's a Rube Goldberg invention taking 150 moving parts to make your morning toast. Please save yourself the time and aggravation of playing this game and don't download unless you have about 3,000 dollars to waste just to play a game that has become lame even if you have a good city to fight with. Everything they have done to "enhance" the game is only ways to enhance the size of their bank account.
Nothing nice to say so say nothing at all :)
by Addicted gameaholic on 2014/09/27 19:28
I've always been told if you can't say nothing nice say nothing at all, however this time I'm going to back up the nothing nice and explain why. About a week ago I was logging in to an account and kept getting "password can't be empty" error so I asked three other ppl to log in to the account and they got the same error. When I mailed mz the response was that it was the Internet connection. Ironically all 4 ppl that tried in 3 different countries were having internet connection issues at the exact same time. I let this go knowing machine zones lack of decency to make it right. The account was zeroed and hero executed. Then on Thursday 9/25 I wasn't able to get into my own account from around 8pm-2am due to an "emergency maintenance" that machine zone claimed a server blew. Imagine my surprise when I was able to log in again that not only had my city been hit at 9:30, when no one was supposedly on but that my hero is captured waiting to be executed, troops are now dead/hospitalized and what is machine zone doing about it? I would love to tell you but they haven't responded to my mails and probably won't. I haven't spent enough to pay their mortgage but I have paid my them enough to keep up their internet so they can respond but I can't afford the buy them the decency to do so. Hope this helps with your decision of the game. Not recommended, xAngelEyesx
A Money-Hungry, Dying Game
by DSDNGR on 2016/05/02 21:56
I have been playing for 2 years now and have seen the game through many changes and advances. I've spent loads of money trying to keep up with the game's updates but it's nearly impossible to do without a thick wallet. Once sales started popping up for days that weren't even holidays or weekends, I knew that MZ (developers) was getting desperate. They are now advertising a "May Day" sale. Last week they had a "Hump Day" sale; they are probably losing loyal players because power is so unachievable these days. Strategy used to be of value and now anyone can come in and outgrow you if he's got enough money, killing the strategy aspect of the game. For those that moderately spend, they thriftily become rally traps and you spend a good amount of the kill event just looking for a target that you won't be point-deficit in hitting. I've watched numerous loyal players leave after years because the sales have caused such an imbalance amongst players and they are tired of paying to keep playing at their current level. I am tired too and will be selling a bundle of six accounts in hopes of getting some of my money back. Time to spend it on something worth the investment. The game is just not fun anymore. Don't waste your money (and you will) or time on something you'll just have to keep upgrading every month at the cost of 3x $100 gold packs. Goodbye GOW!!!
The GAME you love to hate
by BigWhiteVan on 2016/12/28 02:41
This is the most addicting game around. I have played many years and you won't be top player unless you spend money. Real money. Lots of money. And it is so popular that the system needs upgrading all the time and old devices can't keep up. So they crash. BUT!!!! It is still the BEST game out there. It has levels to achieve even in small non spending players. It teaches you to protect what you build. It can be destroyed. But that is a lesson everyone should learn. It is so much easier now to play than when it started. And many still play. The best part of the game maybe the chat system. Being able to live chat with people around the world to collaborate and achieve goals makes this game emotionally addictive as well as personally addictive. The translator is not perfect but ironically provides much comic relief. You can easily achieve a large city with a $20-$40 a month investment. Or 2-3 lunches at fast food. Think about it. A console game costs $60 and it never changes. Not to mention the $300 it takes to buy the console. And the $240 it takes to play online. Try GoW and see why people love to HATE it!!
Used to be good
by Zachhh77 on 2014/12/27 21:43
I have been playing this game almost since the beginning. It started out great plenty of wars and while spenders have an advantage they could be beat with superior game play. Now spenders hit 3 billion power in two weeks when people who played for a year had not even hit a billion. It is impossible to compete with the spenders as MZ continues to create more and more advantages for them. There are almost know wars now as competitions have become based on research and troop growth. No surprise who wins that. When the one kill event a month happens the spenders are so far ahead that you can't compete at all. While I have spent some on the game it has become outrageous at what they want people to spend. As far as starting new. If you don't spend don't spend don't bother. You will have people on a new world at a1/2 a billion to a billion power inside of two weeks. This basically eliminates any real gameplay and strategy regarding in world battles as you simply can't compete. Used to be a great game. While I am at almost a billion power myself it took a year and a lot of strategy and learning game mechanics. Now it takes a push of a button and $100. New players stand no chance and most will quit inside of two weeks. There are now researches that over 1000 days to complete. The researches give huge advantages. So if you don't spend find a different game.
The fun is Gone
by WinterMagnolia on 2017/02/13 00:07
I've been playing Game of War since just after it was offered. Originally it was a lot of fun because you weren't attacked constantly but allowed to grow. Now you MUST be shielded at all times and shields cost real money. If you aren't shielded against attacks your own alliance will attack you so no one else can take your resources or Hero. To be able to attack enemies or just protect yourself is expensive. I've read reviews of people who say they don't spend money. They might not, but they also can't protect themselves or grow (meaning completing higher & higher levels of research to enable upgrading buildings and training decent troops.) You cannot compete without spending $500 - $1000 minimum. Many of the people still playing are hard core and won't even talk to you if the haven't achieved levels of one billion plus. It was fun originally but now it's only fun for the people who have and will continue to spend serious money. If you aren't willing to do that, find another game. This is the reality and to those who'll try to call BS & say that I'm still playing so I must enjoy it and that I'm only mentioning the problems; I haven't mentioned ALL the problems like horrible customer service & having spent quite a lot playing, I'm hesitant to just dumping my investment.
Disappointed
by ⛄️⛄️--😠😠😠 on 2014/08/29 10:14
That day MZ was working on their maintenance I had a problem before they started. I've been playing this game for over a year and I've never had an issue with notifications. I have notifications turned on, on the game as well as on my phone and throughout that whole time I never got a single notification that my peace shield was going to expire soon or that I was getting attacked, as well as other notifications from the game. I emailed MZ and notified them of what was going on. MZ emailed me back telling me that maybe I wasn't paying attention, or that it was a connection issue on my side, or that my notifications on the game wasn't on. First of all my significant other plays this game as well, we're in the same alliance and they were receiving notifications from the game. I got hit 22 times and I didn't get a single notification. As soon as they were done with their maintenance I started getting notifications once again, but it was too late. I lost troops, walls, hero, and rss. So far MZ hasn't replied back to me to see if they're going to reimburse me, when obviously it was a mistake on their side. By reading some of the reviews on here I doubt they will reimburse me. Therefore I don't recommend this game just for the simple fact that MZ is bad at reimbursing people as well as they seem to blame the player when the game is messing up on their side.
Buy to play
by That one guy that plays games on 2015/05/01 00:55
Game of War is a pretty addicting game. When I started, my kingdom was 0 days old. Now it is almost 5 months old and I'm still playing. There are awesome and funny people in this game and fighting with your alliance and friends is awesome. However, for you to advance in this game and actually become powerful, you need to either spend loads of money on packs or get in an alliance that spends a lot and you just get the gifts. Theses alliances will not accept small people like me and most of the GOW players since they are made up of spenders. If you do not shield or become powerful, you will constantly be farmed and attacked. You won't be able to have a lot of fun since you will only be able to attack small people and most of the time, they call in their 1 billion power friend who will zero you easily. All these reviews that are saying "Best Game Ever!" Or "Love It!" were made by people in MZ or who were paid by them. This game is fun if you do become powerful but if you don't, you'll just become a farm and one day you'll just quit. I had befriended many people in GOW and about 90% of them have quit. The other 10% are spenders who protect me and help me out. Get this game if you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars. Maybe one day I'll become powerful even though I've only spent $10 :)
Time and money pit
by Sik Rik on 2015/06/10 12:44
Very unbalanced game where the beginner players are at the mercy of players of any level. If you do not have money or ridiculous amounts of time to spend then don't bother playing this game. To become even remotely powerful in this game you must invest months of time and or hundreds of dollars. Research at the mid to upper end of game takes months if not years to complete. Therefore you must spend money to buy speedups to get anything done. Also there is so much you must upgrade that even if you do spend money on upgrade packs you barely scratch the surface of the amount of research necessary to get anything anywhere in this game. At first packs cost anywhere from $5 to $20 dollars which isn't bad. But after 3 or so purchases at any of those prices only $100 packs are available for you to purchase. Even after contacting the support department about this issue you are told it's the sales department that handles that. Basically just giving you the run around blame game. This game revolves around money plain and simple. If you are not willing to spend hundreds of not thousands and countless hours of your time hoping and praying you don't get attacked and lose what can cost you months to build from a single attack from a player then don't bother. Plenty of better games to have fun without breaking the bank or taking up your time.
Pay to Play
by xXD4RK1Xx on 2017/03/16 00:30
Terrible game design makes this game practically pay to play. You'll literally be one of the weakest players in any kingdom unless you pay to play. And to keep at the top you'll have to spend 100's of dollars MONTHLY. While updates are usually good, in this game they're basically just more upgrade options for players who pay for it. Past around level 21? You'll basically be stuck in a rut and won't be able to upgrade anything unless you pay. This is because you simply won't be able to get the amount of resources that are available to everyone because you simply can't farm them quick enough or in large enough amounts. Furthermore you'll reach a point where you can't upgrade because of the requirement of exclusive resources that are only available to player who pay because there is literally no way to obtain these resources except by paying for them. This includes things like brass rods, hammers, heroic medals, fire shards, and the list keeps going on and on. They've also greatly reduced milestone chest drop rates which means some resources are even more difficult to obtain now, like gold. So just avoid this game like the plague unless you're looking for something to empty your wallet on, but you might as well just play something like MTG because at least you have a chance of making a profit from that.
Gow & mobile strike
by Iamdjp on 2017/05/30 05:33
MZ creates games for a single reason - to make money. Their actual business is big data analytics and create these games as their sole revenue source to support their developers working on their true biz strategy which is data crunching analytics (I know I live in Silicon Valley and see their job postings). I spent over $50,000 on GOW in early 2014. Today if I spent $500 I would have the same "game benefits" because of super inflation. Don't waste your time on any game by MZ. This include their Arnold "mobile strike game". They are seriously after your money. I learned the hard way which many have as well. If you download a game that has a commercial on TV and says "free to play" you must understand it's not at all free to play. They are advertising on tv - this takes money. Think for a moment before you play. And if you don't mind spending more than $100 a day to play a game, realize any dollar you spend today will be worth 1/10th in a few months. The devs need new players to join and play which means they'll inflate packs so that new players who join (which they need to keep you involved) will be able to spend $100 to compete with what you spent $1k on less than a few months earlier. And the cycle will continue indefinitely until the game gets a bad reputation. Which is why Game of War has now become mobile strike.
Excellent! But..
by Jakealake44 on 2014/12/26 17:25
This game is the most addictive and fun game I have ever played in my life... But you have to spend money for it to be fun. I have been playing the game for 32 days and have spent $130 and I am SH 15 and have all tier 3 troops. I am smart with my gold and mainly only use it to upgrade my prison, altar, etc. with the help if the people in my alliance. This game is not like Clash of Clans and you will stay loyal to your alliance because they seem like family to you. Also, in the kingdoms everyone knows each other and there are the people that are rivals and allies. I like this game because you can actually join up with your allies to create a massive hive and protect each other from rival alliances. It is not like Clash of Clans because you actually have a location (coordinates) to where you are and you can change that. But the down side to that is people can find you who have spent more money than you and burn you, but you can change your name, empire name, profile image and more and teleport away from their to escape enemies. Remember though, you need to spend money for this game to be fun and addicting!
The "Red Ferrari" of mmo games...lol
by This game "RULES" on 2014/12/09 03:18
Don't waste your time or money on this junk. The dynamics of the game are not set up for any new players to ever win. Unless you get into a new kingdom and have vast amounts of money to spend on fake power, it's really not worth your time. If you get into the Zeno kingdom, quit immediately. The idiots that "rule" the wonder (lol), have no clue. The wonder is on "rotation" by the 5 largest alliances. SMALL minds & even SMALLER appendages, make for a COMPLETE waste of time; which to me is more valuable than any fake power or gold. Lol The larger groups only feed on the smaller ones, so there's no opportunity to grow or ever win. The amount of time these people put into this junk, is beyond my realm of understanding. They play for hours daily, have voice chat set up to keep in constant "control", and there are no limits to the stupidity they won't pull. People are starving in the world & these morons are spending real money on fake food? Get real geniuses! MZ is a joke too. Got a problem? Write to the pope. You'd be more apt to get a response. Customer service is horrible, as it's the same old run around. Spend money on it, then they clam up. No one ever really replies, they just send messages saying they've forwarded it to the proper department..? Well guess what? I'm reporting MZ to the Better Buisness Bureau, for fraud. Seriously...DON'T BOTHER!
BE AWARE Lost Potential
by iXi CoMp iXi on 2015/08/07 00:58
The game was designed great at first. There are still a few things to point out in which I personally didn't like about the game. Machine Zone has a horrible customer service dept. they don't respond when you tell them about technical difficulties with their software. During kill events lots of defense players get rallied and try to put a shield up but it says you have an active March out so you can't, nor can you teleport away. They tell you to restart the game and that if that doesn't solve it then it must just be the lag from your bad connections. They blame our connection for their incapable game server that they use to make hundreds of thousands of dollars.. With all that money couldn't they come out with something a little more dependable? After all, it's WE the consumers who provide you a cash flow profit. Mz doesn't care about the game nor do they care about the players in it. They only care for money. They know how to make a good game, the money, thousands of fans, yet can they invest into something? That's where dedication is needed so I'd go with NO! 😂😂 that's all.. Just thought I'd give a report since their stupid pop up was so eager to find out what I think of this game. 😘☝🏻️👆🏻👌🏻

I hope they sue this lame game

Soo boring and lame. Waste of time. Why requirements though! Stupid and dumb. Get rid of this stupid game.
complete trash
by BloopyDoops on 2017/07/24 15:59
boring, repetitive, money-hungry, unoriginal. those adjectives sum it up.
False advertising- Money pit!
by Some good game!!!! on 2017/07/24 15:57
I've played for a few years and I will say it was a great game back in the day(like 3 years ago) how ever the game slowly got worse. For starters the games loading is slow, servers incredibly laggy, and trashy graphics( not as advertised AT ALL YOULL THINK YOU GOT THE WRONG APP) so not only scammers/lairs they are crooks as well. I bought a pack for 10$( because no way I was gonna be one of those guys that spends 1000s of $$$$ a day) and I didn't get my stuff. I contacted MZ and I get this crappy deal that says spend 100$ on this pack and get 100K extra gold which gets you no where once you reach lvl 21. And when you are lvl 21 you have to spend 50$-10,000$ a upgrade depending on the upgrade. (Some upgrades take a life time! NO JOKE. Do the math of 800billion days and find out😱) so not only will this game make the Trumps of the world broke, it will also take a couple people's life's to finish your upgrade.( I guess your heir to the throne will have to take over- like your great great great grandson might see it finish) and the worse part is these big money spenders( probably Trump and Obama) will port right beside you and launch a attack taking all your resources( which is how Obama is rich in the first place 😄 just saying) and then executing your hero giving them perks and leaving you broke with most the money you spent gone. If you spent money to max EVERYTHING out you would be unstoppable for a day until the next Packs role out. It takes as much money as the global warming people want to play this game(20Trillion$$$$$) NOT RECOMMENDED👎👎👎👎

Decent game but...
by Purewop on 2017/07/24 15:40
So it's a good idea, very addictive, lots of adrenaline but MZ obviously and purposely creates issues in the game outside of your control. During all that adrenaline, in a fight (which is the entire reason to grow and play), MZ will have serious delay, known as lag. This game is all about timing if you want to be big or a trap. Waiting till the last minute to surprise your opponent...which is how you win, and what they recommend you not to do. Why you ask? Because they cannot guarantee that their servers will function properly, I mean really...it's a computer and likely built in to fail so you spend more. Oh they blame it on your internet service and some of you actually may have that issue..I however am a network engineer, I run programs that monitor this and know it is not true! So good luck is all I can say... A another year playing and it's gotten even worse! This game used to be about skill it's only a spenders game, who has the biggest wallet. I believe they are purposely closing this game down, don't waste your money. Anything you buy will be obsolete in days. New everything comes weekly...

A lot of grinding in this game. The game is fun but as you level up higher, each buildings takes longer to upgrade. You will go from 5 mn wait time to hours and finally days. Let's not mention you risked getting attacked by other players making you restart all over again. The best choice is to join an alliance, and ask them to help you upgrade. Alliance also offer protection since higher ranked alliance won't get attacked often. Sometimes other alliances will join forces to control a section of the kingdom which is pretty huge. The game is very detailed and there's a lot of politics in the game. People take it a bit too seriously. I gave it 4 star on how detailed and addictive it is. It could've been 5 stars if weren't for the fact that you got to pay money in order to be at the top. Nothing would be wrong but everything is expensive in this game. $100 for a couple of in-game gold? Not really worth it if you ask me. No wonder people take this game seriously after investing so much it only makes sense. On the plus side if you join an alliance with a leader that do spend money, you get extra gifts that you wouldn't have had you been a regular player. In conclusion joining an alliance is a must and actually make the game much more fun. The way people interact in the game really make the game for me. It's worth a download and you spend a lot of time in it. Very good and detailed game
Game of War- Review
by Cool ouzo on 2015/08/17 08:48
Game of War is a very unique, strategic-based app that requires the best of patience in people and usually results in having good rewards for that; granted that this app has a total pay-to-win system, it's still possible to play this app without paying a penny. Seemingly enough, the app works well (occasional crashes) but never has any major "bugs" or "viruses". The game is graphically not too bad, for an app, it's considered mediocre. If you're biased on Clash of Clans or Boom Beach or any birds-eye view app, then you'll surely enjoy this app as it passes off time rather than other apps that take time- this app, can be an entertainment user. To get to the cons of this app, I'll start off by saying that the pay-to-win is incredibly advertised throughout the app- you'll never be able to get rid of it (even when you buy a pack) and it'll stick with you till you delete it. This is something I can't really get into, and I don't see why it's a MUST to continue advertising; the final con I have is that there's a lot of time to be put into this app. A LOT of time. You're going to have to pay lots of attention to focusing on your quests and journeys if you're looking to get far. Waiting to become better will not make you better. PLAYING IS WINNING! In all, Game of War: Fire Age, is a 4.5/5 for me and I recommend it to anyone who's serious about these games and needs some serious time burners.
Great Game but VERY TRICKY too!!!
by Mitch000000 on 2016/05/20 11:38
I love playing this game. It's very interesting, challenging and competitive. HOWEVER, this game is about money; getting money from the people who is playing. My bad experiences: This happened to me more than one time, and I'm starting to believe the game is setup to do this to us so we can spend more money to rebuild of city. It takes a lot speedups and resources to train troops especially if they are high power troops. To protect your troops while you are not on the game, you will have to use a shield on your city. When I had low power troops, I put a shield on my city for 3 days. When I woke up, my troops were attacked, killed and hospitalized; but I wonder how when I had a shield. Recently, I had millions of high power troops that I spent billions of resources on and 100's of hours of speedups on. I then activated a 3 day shield on my city to protect them. I logged off the game. When I returned, all my troops were attached and killed. I contacted the help center and they insulted me by crediting with some things that I could have got on my own. These actions make me believe that this game gets you attacked purposely, so you can spend more money to rebuild after being attacked badly by power players. My advice to you if you are interested in playing is: DO NOT SOEND ANY MONEY because it will make you emotional after being wrongly attacked.
What a great game
by dreamerkoh on 2015/01/11 08:43
You'll need to form alliances within Game of War, teaming up with other countries and sharing resources and supplies. These aren't always the most trustworthy agreements - sometimes their king will attempt to overtake yours in the name of leadership. However, a good Alliance is nice to have, especially when you're crushing a rogue country under your boot, making them pay for dastardly deeds and displaying true power. With Game of War, though, it takes a while to get there. Like the best MMOs, or "grind-fests," it takes time and perhaps money to build a nation. Don't expect to jump in and have your ideal kingdom in minutes. Thankfully, the investment is worth it. Machine Zone has a great gameplay system where it's relatively easy to select your resources and take your kingdom and soldier to new heights. Crafting new weapons is a delight, as you can see how they take effect in the game's real-time battles. The scope of these battles is impressive, especially if you're a fan of epic fights. Some more intimate one-on-one encounters for leadership would've been nice, but the game does fine without them. Game of War looks good. You can see how your kingdom's growth is coming along, while keeping an eye open for neighboring allies - or enemies - with ease. However, this game is best played on an iPad, as it may be too hard to navigate on a tinier iPhone screen.
Game of War personal view
by Dragonhubter on 2017/04/07 16:56
Hi, in the time I have been playing Game of War, I have realized that it can become very addictive really fast. At the same time you have the opportunity to join other alliances, meat New and great people from alliances, and over all just have a tun of fun. The only thinking I would want to see different that would personally help me out, and a lot of smaller players also is if like for one 48 hour time a month, they have the opportunity to buy the biggest, best, and most current packs for 50 % off. If they could do that it would majorly help, and I believe that a lot more people that start out and end up quoting at a small level because they can't build up fast enough, would stay and have a better chance to grow, and then even more fun in the game. So I hope that you can consider what I have said and hopefully find a way to make the highest packs available for a short time once a month for 50% off, it would help every one and in the long run you would as a company would benefit by a lot more sales. You would in the long run be making a little more money at the same time as helping us. Thanks for the fun gaming opportunity and I hope if you are reading this trying to decide if you want to get it, do. You will love it, and enjoy it all. Happy gaming. Sincerely Dragonhubter.
Fun at first, then pointless
by LV1220 on 2013/08/03 05:18
Like everyone else, I thought this game was incredible when it was released. More strategic than Clash of Clans and more detailed. The build rate and upgrades were exciting and I couldn't put down my phone for two days. Then, like every game of this type, it slowed down once I became too high-leveled. Worse though is that the rest of the game doesn't provide enough motivation to deal with the slow pace. Here's a secret: You will NOT become the top player unless you drop some serious real money. Even worse, you will get consistently steam-rolled by stronger players and alliances that were beta-testers and have 20 days of playing behind them. Also frustrating to some is that there aren't any serious consequences to being defeated. Your city and buildings cannot be destroyed. All that happens is you lose your supply of resources, whatever city defenses you have, troops, and maybe your hero. The only real consequence is that it takes a while to restock all your supplies and rebuild your army. Then it's back to Groundhog Day. If you want a social experience, then this game will still satisfy. The Alliance structure encourages people to work together. For strategy game enthusiasts though, it's too simplistic. The game doesn't really seem to go anywhere or accomplish anything more than being a game-oriented chat room. Some may still find it fun months from now, but after over a week of playing, I'm too bored to continue.
GOW
by Locke645 on 2015/07/16 05:09
Game of War, in my opinion, is a pretty addicting game. I've been playing it for a few months now and haven't found any other game that I enjoy playing as much as I enjoy GOW. Unlike all the other games, those similar to GOW, that I've played, they have only taken your troops as your power. In GOW, however, it is quite different. Not only do your troops add to your power, but so does doing research and upgrading buildings. In this game, doing research is absolute key, I've found. It not only leads to massive amounts of power, but boosts all your things like troop health, attack, and defense. Resource production is increased, march speeds and many other things can also be greatly improved with research. I tell all new people to the game, focus on research. You want an army, yes, but you need the boosts from research and cores if you don't want to be slaughtered when you attack or you are attacked. It also helps if you keep all your buildings at the same level as you upgrade your stronghold to the next level because it makes it much easier the more you progress through the game, I know that from experience. Also, they provide some awesome packs. Even the $5 you can buy when you first start off can be very useful. But be warned, when you buy a pack, it is really hard to stop yourself from wanting to buy another one!!!
Fun
by Islandblue mountain on fire on 2015/11/23 00:09
This game is a lot of fun but it is very time consuming. It does lag a lot sometimes and crashes quite a bit. It is a very addicting game so be warned lol. I wished they would have an open all button for the treasure chests it takes up a lot of time to just open each one and if you have multiple chests it can take forever. Hoping they can add a solution for this. You can buy an account from someone who is selling the account could already be ready to go. The time for research is a bit extensive and long... And takes loads of RSS aka resources to build, train troops, and research. I think the merging of kingdoms is a really bad idea I have experienced one and it is the worst. They give you the options to buy packs but that is like a huge hole in your pocket. You can join the game and if you learn it and learn to strategize correctly you can build up your account without spending money. Gain power and join a good alliance that has a high gift level you can get a lot of gifts and help yourself grow. Do not allow this game to take priority over your life that's the best advice I can give you! Overall it is a very fun game to play in your down time. You can meet some great people of all ages the chatting is really awesome. Have fun with this game if you play it just remember that it is after all only a game don't get wrapped up in it like most people do. Have fun! Rose
Very Fun!
by BrJePe on 2015/05/15 10:56
GoW is a very fun game to play. I always wondered what the attraction is for one of these MMORPGs. Now I know. I have all but forgotten my other games and apps on my phone. I rarely even watch TV anymore because I would rather spend my time playing this game. It isn't just the game itself that is fun, it is the people you meet in this virtual world who are the true entertainment. You gain significant benefits for being part of an alliance, and choosing one with other active players is very important as they will help you and look out for your "empire" as you grow. If I love the game so much, why four stars? Although you can play the game for free, you will find, after the first couple of weeks, that you need to spend to grow faster. I have no problem with that, as the developers have to be compensated for the time they spent making the game. I would have spent more buying a console and games than what it takes here. There are people in my alliance who have been playing for months without spending huge sums of money. But to grow into the higher ranks of power in this game requires very large investments. So if you are looking for a social game and enjoy the interactions, you will enjoy this game immensely. If you want to be a major player and love being the biggest and baddest, this requires more than skill, it requires vast amounts of time and money. Try it and enjoy!
Pros and Cons
by 466Augustus on 2015/09/16 09:36
This game is extremely addictive. Alliance/kingdom chats give you a opportunity to converse and connect with everyone you're playing with. It's very complex, unlike most apps which is great. However there are a couple downsides. I play on a iPhone 5s and while I don't experience too many problems, the ones I do notice could be devastating to anyone that has a lot of time/money into this game. This mainly revolves around shielding. A few times now I've had to reboot the game in the middle of a KVK KE as it hasn't allowed me to apply a shield. This tends to happen as my marches sometimes get stuck at their location. I've also purchased a pack in the past and was not given the bonus gold from it. I messaged MZ but they were not helpful at all. My biggest issue however is the fact that they fail to put out a decent Silver pack. Silver is the hardest rss to find and the tiles you gather from offer next to nothing. I'd also like to see them merge a few kingdoms together. A lot of them have a low population and there's not much action going on, which becomes boring. Please stop making new kingdoms so regularly and focus a little attention to the low population kingdoms please MZ! Over all...a great game with a few bugs to work out. I play constantly and have dumped in over $1000 but it's been a lot of fun and I've made some great friends doing so.
Beware! Addicting yet developer greed
by Twocastles on 2016/11/08 22:42
The game was fun to play, and I found myself buying pack after pack in my desire to grow. Then it finally dawned on me. I'm dropping hundreds on a pointless game that I'll never be "the best" at and can't keep up with. MZ makes changes so often. Every time I was on the cusp of being competitive they released something stronger. It's never ending and the cost to grow higher and higher is astounding. People are spending thousands on this game, in many cases they don't have that kind of disposable income. And I feel horrible for spending a couple hundred. Anyhow. It's addicting. To start out is annoying. They literally charge you for everything. You want to go to the dungeon? You have to buy a one time use key. So every time you want to go to the dungeon, you have to pay. It used to have nice drops in the dungeon. Now the drops are weak until you get beyond level 6. But to make it that far you need good gear. Of. Purse you have to pay for a CHANCE to get those. There hasn't been prospector chests in well over a month, so if you don't have that set, you can't get it until the next time they deem it worthy. Arrrghh! It's frustrating. Leave! Leave now! Do NOT play this game or any other pay to play. Better off buying a PS3 or XBOX or PC and get games for those. Don't fret about spending $50 on a game either. Because if you play these types of pay to play games, you'll drop $50 a day easy.
Love the Game But Needs Imporvement
by SpellMaestro on 2016/12/02 01:54
This is a great game in so many ways. Fun people, and all kinds of way to build a monster of an avatar. I have a few issues that bother me: 1) Almost impossible to play without WiFi. I'm a Rank 4 in my Alliance - which means I have to make sure the Alliance Help is being supported and also manage resource deliveries along with coordinate attacks among other things. The chat never loads up without WiFi and the Alliance section doesn't load up with updates, even my bonus gifts can't Open without wifi. This needs to be improved ASAP. I can't even put up a Peace Shield without WiFi. This is a Flaw until fixed. This game requires hundreds of dollars just to be competitive, yet they can't fix this issue? People are going to revolt until this issue is fixed. 2) I feel sorry for the players who don't have the hundreds to sink into this game just to protect themselves from the bigger players AND grow. I have no problem sinking money into a game, but I see a lot of folks in the Alliance struggling to build their Power high enough to contribute to coordinated attacks and also defend themselves and the Alliance. You can't even open up vital buildings unless you purchase enough gold using real money. I'm hoping the Devs find solutions to these obvious and growing problems with Game of War
Laggy / Poor Customer Service
by Fire K34 on 2015/12/03 21:12
I have been playing this game for a few years now, since it was released. Initially is was a great game, addictive but however that has changed in the past year. The game has become very laggy, slow and unresponsive leading to losses in the game that may take either a lot of time to repair or a lot of money. I have dealt with this numerous times and have put in multiple complaints regarding how bad it has become. I have lost items in my inventory, have suffered losses due to game lag, marches not returning, getting booted while in a war, those are just a few examples but the list goes on. What makes matters worse is the customer service.... It is extremely horrible. They don't respond 80% of the time and when they do, the response is generic regardless of the problem. They ask for screen shots of a lot of issues but when provided they don't respond leaving a lot of issues unresolved. Recently MZ has made announcements of the game being revamped and being fixed, DONT believe them!!! The game is slower than ever, still boots me off, all they changed was offers in the packages they sell..... They have their priorities screwed up and are just wanting people to pump more money rather than actually fixing the game issues. I don't recommend this game, if you are still a player I recommend getting together and boycotting until they make a true effort to fixing the issues and make this game fun to play again.
Horribly one sided game
by Momo2203467 on 2014/12/30 13:09
This is the first review I've ever written on any game period. I would like to start off by saying this game is addicting. It has fun mechanics that would make for some awesome gameplay. To say it's one sided is completely an understatement. I played this game for months about a year ago. Took a long time to progress to SH 17 with just a little money spending. Even back then there were big spenders who took the fun out of the game. Having the capability of a single player being able to wipe out an entire alliance of SH 15 and up is utterly ridiculous. Higher level players in larger alliances farm the smaller ones constantly. There is no room to grow unless you hide and buy peace shield after peace shield. I quit almost a year ago because of alliances just farming all the lower players constantly. Decided to give it another run a day ago. BIG MISTAKE. I activated my old level 17 SH account and used all speed boosts to get my researching up and heal all my troops back. It literally took 1 day for a max level player with 3 billion power to teleport in and farm the entire alliance I joined. No resources, no troops, no traps, and a hero in yet another prison. Don't waste your time with this game unless you're willing to spend ALOT of money to be competitive. The developers know the big spenders will keep spending and have tailored the game to keep them around instead of making any progress toward bringing in new players and keeping them.
My experience
by Ebonywarriorcats on 2014/02/23 00:12
I've been playing this game for over 100 days. At first I loved the game I made it all the way to lvl 15 with the lvl cap being 21. But then I started experiencing harassment from other players users with superiority complexes that think its funny to pick on people and abuse the game, they mailed me constantly, probably at least 20 members of one group, most of it was just random BS but some of it was personal and hurtful, this has gone on for days I can't chat in kingdom chat I get told to just go play something else if I don't like it, when I log in to play my mail box is going off constantly I changed my player name but they figured out who I was and continue to bomb my mail box my whole game experience has been so tarnished I don't think I even want to play anymore and certainly will not recommend any one I know subject themselves to such relentless bulling. Also when ever I have written in to support it takes weeks for them to respond and nothing ever gets done about any of it I usually get a generic response that doesn't resolve anything at al, no compensation, no real info that's useful and no penalty to the "problem" users that abuse the game. And this also applies to glitch issues nothing has ever been done, I get " sorry for the inconvenience we will look into it" or " you have to collect the Athena's gift before it expires" when the issue was that the thing never appeared until after it was expired. :( not impressed at all
False advertising and a terrible game.
by Carsegna on 2014/10/29 03:51
Alright so I saw this games ad for awhile now and finally decided to se its worth. All I can say Is that I was disappointed by everything. First off, the advertising for this game was completely misleading. What they use for the previews aren't even in the game. It's simply to make it look better. Second, the actual quality of the game can compare to that of something that would run on one of the old original iOS devices. I'm talking original iPod graphics and engine. I will admit that it kinda looked interesting at first. However once you get farther into the game. It is extremely boring and would more closely represent a social network for ten year old boys than an actual iOS game, Even for a free game. But what really put the nail in the coffin for me personally was the fact that when you go to attack another player, its more of if you have more numbers than the opposing player than actual strategy. When they were marketing this game they promised strategy. Which there is a significant lack of in this game. It doesn't mater where you place your structures because if the attacking player has more numbers it is considered an automatic win. If you coming from games like clash you'll also be disappointed to hear that their is no troop placement or command. Just numbers. So in my honest opinion this is disgrace to your purchases tab. I hope you'll take my advice and find some other mobile game to play.
A total divestment! Nothing free about it!
by Oneupmike/G'Clan on 2017/07/15 06:11
I started a little over 3 years ago. Enjoyed it but spent more than I should have on an app...thousands! It was still fun because it moved slow enough to play, pay, and contemplate. The social aspect is great also. I miss those days of GoW gaming. As many of the single star reviews state...this is a money pit. There's NO WAY to play WITHOUT paying. The game changes so fast you are going to have to spend constantly to just be a person who can donate troops to a rally. The requirements to advance in levels change all the time also. So you accumulate items, gear, resources, etc that end up rotting in your inventory...waste. There were some aspects in the early GoW days that you could at least spend a minimal amount a year and have fun...for those that played then...it was called "trapping". You can't even do that without spending a ton. It really is sad to see what this game has turned into. Please don't waste your money (or go into debt!!!) on this game. Just a word of wisdom...if you see an app in top grossing section of your App Store, and it's listed as "free"...it ISN'T. There have been plenty who have spent on this game and regret it to keep it in the top for awhile. It is slowly declining because of MZ's greed. Just don't play. I gave it 2 stars because of the social aspect...I have met some great people here. Avoid MOBILE STRIKE, also...same maker!
Great game/worst customer service
by Kimster112 on 2015/09/20 23:40
I love this game when it actually works or let's you log on, and the people you meet on here are the best. If you're looking for a stable platform, reliable game play, any sort of customer service or tech support then this is not the game for you. MZ by far has the worst customer service I've ever had the misfortune of dealing with. They don't care how much time or money you put into the game. The only thing they care about is how much more money they can squeeze out of you. Nothing that happens in the game is ever their fault: like being kicked during a rally, shields dropping early, lags that are so bad you don't know you're being attacked until it's to late, people porting in but not showing up on your screen, cores not activating when you use presets, etc. There are so many issues with this game and no matter how many people complain about them MZ does nothing to rectify them or compensate people who lose literally hundreds of dollars because of them. They just keep add more stuff to make more money. When you send a ticket in because of an issue, you'll get the same canned response they send everyone telling you it's your device, Internet connection anything except for their programming. It's sad to see how many dead cities are littering kingdoms because of MZ. Unless you're willing to spend thousands of dollars on a game, you won't last that long. The download may be free but that's about it.
Absolutely NOT a free game
by Madman Fury on 2016/11/20 22:49
Don't get me wrong, I will pitch in a little money to fund developers to create awesome. Games, but here is a letter I wrote to the developers. I played for over three years. I came back to see if anything had changed. Yup! They want more money... Well, I tried to come back. But there are no two ways around this game. You must pay to play. To unlock basic features you have to buy a pack. I was ok with buying a $5 pack. But then it didn't come with all you stated it would. O gift mode. No garrison plot unlock. Still can't buy a DBC, even though I go to the sales every time it comes on. I even wrote to you about it. You couldn't even answer the problem. First you put in a standard cut and paste response that did. To address my question. When I wrote back I got a simpl,e...I don't know. Then why are these people allowed to help at the help desk. So, why continue to call yourself a free to play game. There is no way to play for free and succeed. This will be my review as well... I saw that y'all were the number one free to play revenue game last year. That's a shame. I got 50,000 of 2 different chests. All I could craft out of those 100k chests, a head piece for each armor...that really blows chunks! Good luck! These are typical reviews and rants that I hear daily on line in the game. Don't even begin to play unless you have a few extra 10's of thousanfpds of dollars wasting away. Or you WILL NOT SUCCEED!!! DEFINITELY A BUYER OR PLAYER BEWARE GAME!!

Honestly, They should give an option of less than a star or none at all for games like GoW. Don't get me wrong, this game started off great: I enjoyed building my city, making friends, I invested my money and time to support my alliance and NOW it seems that it was for nothing. GoW is no longer playable with the flood of weekly new upgrades, the increased glitches and lag times, the devaluing of my account, useless items, and increased expense. Unless you are willing to spend hundreds a week and thousands a month, it may be against your best interest to play. If I could change the fact that I ever invested a penny in this game, I would. The people you meet in game are great, but I stopped spending/playing back in December, and wish I had made that decision sooner. As someone who invested thousands into this game, the numerous updates became impossible to keep up with. My account that was one of the best in the Kingdom, based on power and size, and it became obsolete just like that. I would not recommend this game, and if you've taken time to read this and the numerous other honest reviews, you should head warning and stay away - unless you have an indispensable cash flow because you'll need it to keep up with the 1% of players that are still willing to pay; everyone else is packing their bags and calling quits. Less activity, more dead accounts.. not so fun. Good job, MZ! You've really outdone yourselves this time. 👏 .. 👏 .. 👏
Worst customer service..huge scam
by Horrible scam on 2014/08/24 03:47
I have 2 t4 accts in this game which cost thousands of dollars to build. 4 days ago I received a message stating "server under maintenance. Please try again after a while". Since this game always has server issues I figured it would be fixed within the hour. I still do not have access to my acct and it has been attacked and I've lost everything. I've mailed MZ at least 100 times asking them to fix the issue , tried everything they have asked me to do and obviously it's an issue on their side. When I asked them to shield my account so I wouldn't lose everything they ignored me then that night it was hit. My last message I received from them 2 days ago said that they would be forwarding my issue to the developers to fix the issue. I can not get anyone from mz to reply to me or give me even an update on the issue. I would advise everyone to not spend any more money in this game because this could happen to anyone. you will lose everything and Mz will not do anything to help you, they don't even have the decency to respond to you. they will do anything to get your money but will not do anything to help you when they screw up. I'm still waiting for my reply of what they plan on doing to go forward in reimbursing me but sadly I hVe a strong feeling I will not be getting any kind of reply from them. Do not play the game do not spend your money. It's the worst kind of scam.
Ridiculous
by Annabear_ on 2015/07/07 05:02
First off I like this game. I really do it's neat and well organize with certain things. However, the developers have develop a game that they could feed off from people's wallet. The packs that they provide not only cost good amount of money, but every time you purchase, it doubles up the price until you hit a hundred. Yeah they design this pretty well so they could make money. I understand business is all about money, but this is ridiculous. Not only that, the options in the game with building, researching or training, especially digging takes 100 days until you complete it. Wow. I have contacted MZ and they have said it is on how player plays the game. Now tell me this, the only way a player will be able to speed up in those areas will be to spend more cash from their pocket. This is a game for your customers to enjoy. But the only customers you guys will have later on are those who are willing to spend thousands of dollars in this game. You will loose customers if this continue. Everything about this game cost money no matter how much you guys explain this to anyone. It's design well. The developers sure are smart and greedy. But that's just my personal opinion. So anyone who is not planning to spend thousands and hundreds or dollars don't even bother. Cause those who have will just annihilate you with their great power!!!
Waste of time
by Slivermonger on 2014/09/16 22:56
This game is engineered to make you pay thousands to compete. Waste of time and the developers always force 100 dollar packages on you upon login. Developers are too greedy. However, since some spendthrifts threw 10s of thousands of dollars to build up their city, they figured intelligence in the world population is declining. This game was created for profit vs user entertainment so should not be around much longer due to declining user interest. Ppl still join only to realize there is no point. Clash of clans is as fun and way cheaper and you don't NEED to buy where this game you will go nowhere unless you clear your bank account. This game is nowhere near free. Game was created to milk as much money as possible. Even with all of the money they made being a top grosser b4, game still has glitches. 9 months of daily log ins and 75 dollars later, I am still one of the weakest cities. Smh. It gets boring the stronger you get cause you either have to wait 30+ days for research or pay. Game has a serious imbalance favoring rich people or people with stolen credit cards cause too expensive. And times where I sent feedback, sometimes not positive, all of a sudden my prizes decline. Not sure if that is a coincidence. Do not play for fun either because the game is ran by the strongest person per kingdom. This game is not really about strategy. It's about size
Bad business
by K McCain on 2016/04/07 00:33
I love playing this game. However, recently I had written contact support asking if they would exchange speeds if I purchased a pack. I received a reply saying they would do that for me. I purchased a pack and sent a request to have them exchanged. I was told to please tell them exact denominations so I broke down every speed up. I received an email saying they would get the conversion done as quickly as possible. Two days later I asked how the conversion was going. I got a reply saying this was no longer available. I wrote a couple more times asking why they would tell me yes, then have me break down each speed up, then tell me no. I got a reply saying it's no longer available and that they will no longer discuss this topic. If I had another concern to make a new request. I was extremely disappointed as I've spend a lot of money on this game. So I contacted apple and without questions, they refunded my money. I can't thank Apple enough. They took one look at my emails from mz and refunded my money in less than 24 hours. Be very careful what their support tells you, as they will say whatever you want to get you to buy then never fulfill their commitment. I'm very disappointed and will never purchase from them again. It's a great game but very poor customer service.
Pay to be surrounded by jerks
by Gamer4Life0713 on 2017/03/23 03:15
I started playing this game about a month ago with the intention of spending no money as I was led to believe from other positive reviews. But with the constant advertising thrown in your face you start to think "just this one time" which of course is not the end of the story. You will be constantly attacked by other players with power levels in the trillions (it takes a full, strong alliance to rally against a single player with power levels that high), so you contemplate how helpful buying a pack would be to progressing your city even after a massive defeat. You can put up a peace shield around your city but don't forget what time it expires. I had been attacked literally one minute after my shield expired and I was not there babysitting my IPad. Playing the "free" game, you'd be lucky to get your power level into the high thousands, but up against players in the hundred millions and trillions, you're just feeder fish to piranhas. Don't bother gathering resources unless you intend on losing your troops to resource stalkers that would love nothing more than to boost their kill numbers. Do yourself a favor and read the most critical reviews, they are not exaggerated! Anybody who has written a positive review must either work for MZ, or have been compensated in other forms. My advice, don't get started with this "pay to play" game. You will regret investing your time and your money.
Not Buying Any More Packs!!!
by GodChaser1988 on 2017/07/15 13:55
I have been playing GoW for about a year, and I only stay for the contacts I've made in my alliance. Otherwise, this game is only nice for the people who can spend $1000 / month or more to build their empire and their alliance. The really big players in the game spend as much as $20,000 in a week. The problem is that those really big players are allowed to hit the much smaller players who can't afford to spend much on the game, and of course MZ is going to cater to the spenders. If you can't afford to spend at least $200 / month, you won't get anywhere in this game, and it's a waste of time and money. Update 7/17: 2 years now, and MZ continues to get worse and worse. If you spend the money to buy a pack today, the items you bought are useless tomorrow because MZ is releasing new things so fast, even a lot of the bigger spenders are quitting because people can't keep up with the changes. Yes you can play for free but all you have is a social FarmVille if you don't spend. At this point, MZ is releasing new stuff so fast that if you can't spend at least $1000 per month, you really can't keep up. I've finally decided to set a 30-day shield & stop buying packs. Makes me sick when I think about the fact that I've spent enough money on this game to buy a house & it means nothing now!! It's a total waste & MZ absolutely DOES NOT CARE about anything but taking your $$$!
Pay to win & game breaking glitches
by Mauler Jr. on 2016/11/27 04:50
This "free to play" game is definitely a pay to win; I paid for the $5 pack to get started and it did make the game more enjoyable for me, then I started realizing that although I was increasing my power at a decent rate, there are a handful of "alpha" clans who have trillions or billions of power per player and the only way to do this is by spending more and more money. Some of these people have dropped hundreds upon hundreds of dollars on this game and it's made them unbeatable. They get to do whatever they want and basically "bully" the little guys into staying shielded all the time, taking away from gameplay for everyone else. The biggest problem for me however, is the game breaking glitches that exist; one of my alliance members sent troops for a rally, they were all killed but his upkeep is still high and he can't put a peace shield up because it says he has troops out on offensive marches. So he just keeps getting hit over and over by those "big fish" I mentioned above, losing his hero and he can no longer play the game. He's STILL waiting on a response from MZ. It's a fun game, to a point. I just wouldn't recommend putting too much into it unless you're willing to put EVERYTHING into it and potentially be left glitched out at the end of the day.
Why not correct price
by Ikea4 on 2016/01/07 13:08
The game cost a lot of money if you want to play competitively. It can be a boat load of fun though once you get hooked. There are glitches that do happen to some and actually happened to me. That cost me a few hundred dollars and actually the fault was on MZ. They did finally manage to respond and of course did nothing to really help except give me a couple of peace shields. It should've been an insult but after two weeks when I did hear back from them, they actually sounded concerned. The point is they are improving. They aren't perfect but they care enough to keep trying do I will stick with them. They variation in the price or tax paid on the gold packs is an issue since it really does add up. Prices are the same on game but billed over $8 for a 4.99 purchase. Wife spent a lot of money and there are over $200 in these extra charges. I'm going to raise the rating I gave initially because MZ is raising the level of service. Keep up the good work guys. Update: lately they have promised events and not delivered. There have been very few kvk kill events and the events that have happened require spending to participate in. That's not fun.
This game is broken
by HavocK62 on 2015/02/25 16:27
The developer is aware and has ignored several game breaking mechanics, most recently and egregiously the embassy cheat which completely takes any fair play and competitive aspect away from the games "kingdom vs kingdom" kill events and tourneys. This game is not worth downloading at this time. Shame after playing for almost 2 years it has come to this point. Greed over quality by the developers. The T1 traps have made events boring and tedious. Embassy cheat in kill events is by far the most outlandish thing I have ever encountered in a game. Kill events state "Kill one outlander t3 troop - 40 points, kill one outlander t4 troop - 100 points." No where in this does it state "Kill your own t4 troop - 100 points." However, that's all some of these kingdoms are doing to win in kingdom vs kingdom kill events. Many kingdoms have cut off spending due to this and the lack of action by MachineZone. We have submitted many helpspot tickets and they simply just give us an automated reply, the best one was "This is part of military strategy, you should unite with your alliance members and think of ways to overcome this strategy!" Absurd, you would think they would want to fix a cheat to at least provide a level of fairness to the players. Until they fix this embassy cheat, many players will not spend another dime and will not participate in any events at all including myself, my alliance, and my kingdom.
MZ is too GREEDY
by No More $ for MZ on 2016/01/28 22:29
This is a amazing game. The features and the style of play set it apart from all of the other downloadable apps. I've been playing for a year and am totally hooked. Aside from the actual game itself, it has a social component that truly enhances the game. I have met some really great people on GOW in the past year. Unfortunately, Machine Zone (MZ) had to ruin it with their never ending greed. Despite all the ads on TV, this is not a "play for free" game. It costs money. Lots of money. I am embarrassed to tell you how many thousands of dollars I have spent on this game; but I was okay with that. Like I said, the game is awesome and a lot of fun. What has finally gotten me to the point of quitting is MZ's insatiable lust for money. It is one thing to put a price on the game and spend to achieve that level play. Quite another to do what MZ has done: constantly raising the bar to make a high level of play untenable unless you spend 10 to 20 thousand dollars. Shame on MZ for their greed. My advice to those thinking about downloading this app: DON'T DO IT!!! Even though the game itself is so much fun and you will meet some awesome people, at the end of the day you will be left with considerably less money then you started with and never achieve that level of play you were searching for and deserve.
Horrible support team.. Never Ending glitches.. And a lot of money needed to spend
by Itzzsisibabiie on 2016/08/14 12:25
The game is nice. I hate how everything with this game is all money and they're packs are expensive too. If you want to get anywhere in this game you need to buy packs. When ever I have an issue with the game I have to email them and straight away they either belittle me like I don't know what I'm talking about or they say I'm lying; which I than have to send them a whole other email stating the issue AGAIN. Personally you shouldn't handle your services like this your Motto should be the customers always right. If I could attach some of the stuff these people have said to me in their emails it's just extremely rude and customer service shouldn't be saying those things. There's ALWAYS an issue with the game, never fails. I think they think that they can't have glitches with their game because every time you bring up a glitch they sound so appalled that you would bring something like that up. Another issue was my items going missing that mind you I paid for and I told them this and they said to me if I didn't know the name of said item that it couldn't be fixed; which surprise surprise I didn't know the name so they did absolutely nothing. For the most part the game is fun and you meet great people but, if you're going to take my money and a lot of it at that then you need to step it up.
Needs Improvement
by Nightsong66 on 2016/11/30 13:30
I like the game well enough. I've been playing it since I got my smartphone about a year ago, and it's relatively enjoyable. But there's a few things that irk me: 1) Research time. It starts out small, a couple hours maybe, but then it grows to over 1000 DAYS??? I mean seriously, I thank you for the free speed-ups in the Athena's Chests, but I am not waiting practically TWO YEARS for my research to finish. 2)Teleportation. I have a love/hate relationship with this feature. I like being able to jump around and use my treasure maps, but when people attack me as soon as my shield drops (though many have given me a couple hours between the shield dropping and their first attack) and attempt to zero out my resources, and then teleport away like a coward before ANYONE in my alliance can retaliate? That's when I hate it. I have a couple other complaints, but those are two of my biggest ones. I do like the game, and for the most part, I try to play daily. It's fun, a decent city-builder, and you get to wage all-out war on (other than your alliance) a kingdom full of players. You help your alliance members with construction and research, healing their troops, and sometimes you find friends among the other players.
Fun but just way too expensive
by kfkhlf4 on 2017/04/29 15:09
It's a fun game and all but you have to spend hundreds of dollars to keep up in it. I've spent very little and am in an alliance with some big spenders but I can't help them much unless I'm willing to fork up a few hundred bucks. One of my alliance members told me he spent over $500 on one research tree. I am having fun playing it but I can't recommend it to anyone I know since it's not worth the cash. Oh and the packs that you spend money on get more expensive the more of them you buy so the first is $5 and then it only offers $10 and $20 and then it keeps getting more expensive so also keep that in mind. Edit: I caved and bought the $20 pack and now the game offers$50-$100 packs. That $20 pack did make me grow about 10 times in power but I'm still orders of magnitude below most other active players. There is a confusingly structured inferno event which makes it look like you can just buy $20 in gold and get the trillions in resources you need at the higher levels but you won't get anything until you spend at least $100. So the game is just getting more expensive. I can't recommend this game unless you're ok with spending thousands. Oh and the most common purchases list here in the App Store is definitely wrong because buying gold on its own doesn't do anything for you.
Packs
by ALANMILLER12000000 on 2017/07/23 14:27
So as I know everyone knows the only way to get good is to spend money. Nothing wrong with that you don't want to spend money play a different game. But I am one of those money spenders and I have a complaint. I just spend $200 about. And got a few packs that guarantees t8 troops so I go to the ultimate combat and forgot I needed t6 troops to continue only problem is I don't have any water shards. So I am unable to get to t8 which is a bummer because I have all t7 and 8 materials. Not much of a guarantee t8 if you can't get to them. I also contacted them and they won't even give me water shards. How money hungry are y'all seriously there are no packs with water shards how am I supposed to get them? Also to get my SH to higher levels I need my academy higher... the only way to get that is to upgrade my gear workshop and I can due to missing items. Funny thing is when I Bought the pack with the gear workshop in it it came with nothing to upgrade with. So I didn't mind it and bought a few more packs. Once I needed to upgrade my SH a few more levels and couldn't due to missing materials I got upset. Thing was the very next day a new pack came out with the items need to upgrade this building. I'm not going to spend money over and over again. PUT THE RIGHT CORRISPONDING THINGS IN PACKS.
There's a lot of commercials
by Windyboy413 on 2015/03/06 04:29
When I try to play my game peacefully the commercial of this game keeps on popping out of no where!! I just want to destroy this game because it's commercials!! Can the people who made the game please stop with the commercials I think everybody is tried of it too. I just want to report this game if anyone else is tried of the commercials please write #triedofcommercial for the title of the review. Please take off the commercials the more there are commercials the more people get tried of it and stop playing are will never start playing this game. I just downloaded this game for this report that's how mad I am. If you stop with a lot of commercials I think you can have more people playing because you can a have some commercials but not on all the game like really people. I'm just trying to say just get rid of all the commercials and put them on some games not all games the commercials are even on kids game and the lady in the commercial is showing some of her breast like really. Your going to make a child horrified!!! if I see a lot of commercials I will report you a million times please stop!! I bet when you stop you will get even more people and I would even start playing too!! PLEASE STOP! That all and thank you for reading. I'm giving a 1 star sorry I could give a 5 star in the future maybe if you stop with the commercials. That's all
An ILAnd of stupidity in a sea of greed.
by Amused time killers on 2014/08/16 08:44
I have been playing since last November when it WAS a really cool strategy and fighting game. Sure the guys willing to pay real money got built up a little faster but with patience and a good alliance you could do well. Now they make so many POINTLESS events that don't do anything but make the developer money. Organized good alliances cannot win gold anymore or win a tiny amount so that if you want to grow you almost HAVE to purchase with real money. Simple war game with kill events each weekend has morphed into who can build the most troops wearing the color green on a Tuesday if the month has an even number of days. (Sure a slight embellishment for effect, but not far from the truth). Events are poorly thought out. Game has added so many superfluous features that it takes forever to load and finally when you play it is many times slow and glitchy. Original game was a simple fast corvette. fun to play, quick and easy to maneuver. Now it's a Rube Goldberg invention taking 150 moving parts to make your morning toast. Please save yourself the time and aggravation of playing this game and don't download unless you have about 3,000 dollars to waste just to play a game that has become lame even if you have a good city to fight with. Everything they have done to "enhance" the game is only ways to enhance the size of their bank account.
Nothing nice to say so say nothing at all :)
by Addicted gameaholic on 2014/09/27 19:28
I've always been told if you can't say nothing nice say nothing at all, however this time I'm going to back up the nothing nice and explain why. About a week ago I was logging in to an account and kept getting "password can't be empty" error so I asked three other ppl to log in to the account and they got the same error. When I mailed mz the response was that it was the Internet connection. Ironically all 4 ppl that tried in 3 different countries were having internet connection issues at the exact same time. I let this go knowing machine zones lack of decency to make it right. The account was zeroed and hero executed. Then on Thursday 9/25 I wasn't able to get into my own account from around 8pm-2am due to an "emergency maintenance" that machine zone claimed a server blew. Imagine my surprise when I was able to log in again that not only had my city been hit at 9:30, when no one was supposedly on but that my hero is captured waiting to be executed, troops are now dead/hospitalized and what is machine zone doing about it? I would love to tell you but they haven't responded to my mails and probably won't. I haven't spent enough to pay their mortgage but I have paid my them enough to keep up their internet so they can respond but I can't afford the buy them the decency to do so. Hope this helps with your decision of the game. Not recommended, xAngelEyesx
A Money-Hungry, Dying Game
by DSDNGR on 2016/05/02 21:56
I have been playing for 2 years now and have seen the game through many changes and advances. I've spent loads of money trying to keep up with the game's updates but it's nearly impossible to do without a thick wallet. Once sales started popping up for days that weren't even holidays or weekends, I knew that MZ (developers) was getting desperate. They are now advertising a "May Day" sale. Last week they had a "Hump Day" sale; they are probably losing loyal players because power is so unachievable these days. Strategy used to be of value and now anyone can come in and outgrow you if he's got enough money, killing the strategy aspect of the game. For those that moderately spend, they thriftily become rally traps and you spend a good amount of the kill event just looking for a target that you won't be point-deficit in hitting. I've watched numerous loyal players leave after years because the sales have caused such an imbalance amongst players and they are tired of paying to keep playing at their current level. I am tired too and will be selling a bundle of six accounts in hopes of getting some of my money back. Time to spend it on something worth the investment. The game is just not fun anymore. Don't waste your money (and you will) or time on something you'll just have to keep upgrading every month at the cost of 3x $100 gold packs. Goodbye GOW!!!
The GAME you love to hate
by BigWhiteVan on 2016/12/28 02:41
This is the most addicting game around. I have played many years and you won't be top player unless you spend money. Real money. Lots of money. And it is so popular that the system needs upgrading all the time and old devices can't keep up. So they crash. BUT!!!! It is still the BEST game out there. It has levels to achieve even in small non spending players. It teaches you to protect what you build. It can be destroyed. But that is a lesson everyone should learn. It is so much easier now to play than when it started. And many still play. The best part of the game maybe the chat system. Being able to live chat with people around the world to collaborate and achieve goals makes this game emotionally addictive as well as personally addictive. The translator is not perfect but ironically provides much comic relief. You can easily achieve a large city with a $20-$40 a month investment. Or 2-3 lunches at fast food. Think about it. A console game costs $60 and it never changes. Not to mention the $300 it takes to buy the console. And the $240 it takes to play online. Try GoW and see why people love to HATE it!!
Used to be good
by Zachhh77 on 2014/12/27 21:43
I have been playing this game almost since the beginning. It started out great plenty of wars and while spenders have an advantage they could be beat with superior game play. Now spenders hit 3 billion power in two weeks when people who played for a year had not even hit a billion. It is impossible to compete with the spenders as MZ continues to create more and more advantages for them. There are almost know wars now as competitions have become based on research and troop growth. No surprise who wins that. When the one kill event a month happens the spenders are so far ahead that you can't compete at all. While I have spent some on the game it has become outrageous at what they want people to spend. As far as starting new. If you don't spend don't spend don't bother. You will have people on a new world at a1/2 a billion to a billion power inside of two weeks. This basically eliminates any real gameplay and strategy regarding in world battles as you simply can't compete. Used to be a great game. While I am at almost a billion power myself it took a year and a lot of strategy and learning game mechanics. Now it takes a push of a button and $100. New players stand no chance and most will quit inside of two weeks. There are now researches that over 1000 days to complete. The researches give huge advantages. So if you don't spend find a different game.
The fun is Gone
by WinterMagnolia on 2017/02/13 00:07
I've been playing Game of War since just after it was offered. Originally it was a lot of fun because you weren't attacked constantly but allowed to grow. Now you MUST be shielded at all times and shields cost real money. If you aren't shielded against attacks your own alliance will attack you so no one else can take your resources or Hero. To be able to attack enemies or just protect yourself is expensive. I've read reviews of people who say they don't spend money. They might not, but they also can't protect themselves or grow (meaning completing higher & higher levels of research to enable upgrading buildings and training decent troops.) You cannot compete without spending $500 - $1000 minimum. Many of the people still playing are hard core and won't even talk to you if the haven't achieved levels of one billion plus. It was fun originally but now it's only fun for the people who have and will continue to spend serious money. If you aren't willing to do that, find another game. This is the reality and to those who'll try to call BS & say that I'm still playing so I must enjoy it and that I'm only mentioning the problems; I haven't mentioned ALL the problems like horrible customer service & having spent quite a lot playing, I'm hesitant to just dumping my investment.
Disappointed
by ⛄️⛄️--😠😠😠 on 2014/08/29 10:14
That day MZ was working on their maintenance I had a problem before they started. I've been playing this game for over a year and I've never had an issue with notifications. I have notifications turned on, on the game as well as on my phone and throughout that whole time I never got a single notification that my peace shield was going to expire soon or that I was getting attacked, as well as other notifications from the game. I emailed MZ and notified them of what was going on. MZ emailed me back telling me that maybe I wasn't paying attention, or that it was a connection issue on my side, or that my notifications on the game wasn't on. First of all my significant other plays this game as well, we're in the same alliance and they were receiving notifications from the game. I got hit 22 times and I didn't get a single notification. As soon as they were done with their maintenance I started getting notifications once again, but it was too late. I lost troops, walls, hero, and rss. So far MZ hasn't replied back to me to see if they're going to reimburse me, when obviously it was a mistake on their side. By reading some of the reviews on here I doubt they will reimburse me. Therefore I don't recommend this game just for the simple fact that MZ is bad at reimbursing people as well as they seem to blame the player when the game is messing up on their side.
Buy to play
by That one guy that plays games on 2015/05/01 00:55
Game of War is a pretty addicting game. When I started, my kingdom was 0 days old. Now it is almost 5 months old and I'm still playing. There are awesome and funny people in this game and fighting with your alliance and friends is awesome. However, for you to advance in this game and actually become powerful, you need to either spend loads of money on packs or get in an alliance that spends a lot and you just get the gifts. Theses alliances will not accept small people like me and most of the GOW players since they are made up of spenders. If you do not shield or become powerful, you will constantly be farmed and attacked. You won't be able to have a lot of fun since you will only be able to attack small people and most of the time, they call in their 1 billion power friend who will zero you easily. All these reviews that are saying "Best Game Ever!" Or "Love It!" were made by people in MZ or who were paid by them. This game is fun if you do become powerful but if you don't, you'll just become a farm and one day you'll just quit. I had befriended many people in GOW and about 90% of them have quit. The other 10% are spenders who protect me and help me out. Get this game if you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars. Maybe one day I'll become powerful even though I've only spent $10 :)
Time and money pit
by Sik Rik on 2015/06/10 12:44
Very unbalanced game where the beginner players are at the mercy of players of any level. If you do not have money or ridiculous amounts of time to spend then don't bother playing this game. To become even remotely powerful in this game you must invest months of time and or hundreds of dollars. Research at the mid to upper end of game takes months if not years to complete. Therefore you must spend money to buy speedups to get anything done. Also there is so much you must upgrade that even if you do spend money on upgrade packs you barely scratch the surface of the amount of research necessary to get anything anywhere in this game. At first packs cost anywhere from $5 to $20 dollars which isn't bad. But after 3 or so purchases at any of those prices only $100 packs are available for you to purchase. Even after contacting the support department about this issue you are told it's the sales department that handles that. Basically just giving you the run around blame game. This game revolves around money plain and simple. If you are not willing to spend hundreds of not thousands and countless hours of your time hoping and praying you don't get attacked and lose what can cost you months to build from a single attack from a player then don't bother. Plenty of better games to have fun without breaking the bank or taking up your time.
Pay to Play
by xXD4RK1Xx on 2017/03/16 00:30
Terrible game design makes this game practically pay to play. You'll literally be one of the weakest players in any kingdom unless you pay to play. And to keep at the top you'll have to spend 100's of dollars MONTHLY. While updates are usually good, in this game they're basically just more upgrade options for players who pay for it. Past around level 21? You'll basically be stuck in a rut and won't be able to upgrade anything unless you pay. This is because you simply won't be able to get the amount of resources that are available to everyone because you simply can't farm them quick enough or in large enough amounts. Furthermore you'll reach a point where you can't upgrade because of the requirement of exclusive resources that are only available to player who pay because there is literally no way to obtain these resources except by paying for them. This includes things like brass rods, hammers, heroic medals, fire shards, and the list keeps going on and on. They've also greatly reduced milestone chest drop rates which means some resources are even more difficult to obtain now, like gold. So just avoid this game like the plague unless you're looking for something to empty your wallet on, but you might as well just play something like MTG because at least you have a chance of making a profit from that.
Gow & mobile strike
by Iamdjp on 2017/05/30 05:33
MZ creates games for a single reason - to make money. Their actual business is big data analytics and create these games as their sole revenue source to support their developers working on their true biz strategy which is data crunching analytics (I know I live in Silicon Valley and see their job postings). I spent over $50,000 on GOW in early 2014. Today if I spent $500 I would have the same "game benefits" because of super inflation. Don't waste your time on any game by MZ. This include their Arnold "mobile strike game". They are seriously after your money. I learned the hard way which many have as well. If you download a game that has a commercial on TV and says "free to play" you must understand it's not at all free to play. They are advertising on tv - this takes money. Think for a moment before you play. And if you don't mind spending more than $100 a day to play a game, realize any dollar you spend today will be worth 1/10th in a few months. The devs need new players to join and play which means they'll inflate packs so that new players who join (which they need to keep you involved) will be able to spend $100 to compete with what you spent $1k on less than a few months earlier. And the cycle will continue indefinitely until the game gets a bad reputation. Which is why Game of War has now become mobile strike.
Excellent! But..
by Jakealake44 on 2014/12/26 17:25
This game is the most addictive and fun game I have ever played in my life... But you have to spend money for it to be fun. I have been playing the game for 32 days and have spent $130 and I am SH 15 and have all tier 3 troops. I am smart with my gold and mainly only use it to upgrade my prison, altar, etc. with the help if the people in my alliance. This game is not like Clash of Clans and you will stay loyal to your alliance because they seem like family to you. Also, in the kingdoms everyone knows each other and there are the people that are rivals and allies. I like this game because you can actually join up with your allies to create a massive hive and protect each other from rival alliances. It is not like Clash of Clans because you actually have a location (coordinates) to where you are and you can change that. But the down side to that is people can find you who have spent more money than you and burn you, but you can change your name, empire name, profile image and more and teleport away from their to escape enemies. Remember though, you need to spend money for this game to be fun and addicting!
The "Red Ferrari" of mmo games...lol
by This game "RULES" on 2014/12/09 03:18
Don't waste your time or money on this junk. The dynamics of the game are not set up for any new players to ever win. Unless you get into a new kingdom and have vast amounts of money to spend on fake power, it's really not worth your time. If you get into the Zeno kingdom, quit immediately. The idiots that "rule" the wonder (lol), have no clue. The wonder is on "rotation" by the 5 largest alliances. SMALL minds & even SMALLER appendages, make for a COMPLETE waste of time; which to me is more valuable than any fake power or gold. Lol The larger groups only feed on the smaller ones, so there's no opportunity to grow or ever win. The amount of time these people put into this junk, is beyond my realm of understanding. They play for hours daily, have voice chat set up to keep in constant "control", and there are no limits to the stupidity they won't pull. People are starving in the world & these morons are spending real money on fake food? Get real geniuses! MZ is a joke too. Got a problem? Write to the pope. You'd be more apt to get a response. Customer service is horrible, as it's the same old run around. Spend money on it, then they clam up. No one ever really replies, they just send messages saying they've forwarded it to the proper department..? Well guess what? I'm reporting MZ to the Better Buisness Bureau, for fraud. Seriously...DON'T BOTHER!
BE AWARE Lost Potential
by iXi CoMp iXi on 2015/08/07 00:58
The game was designed great at first. There are still a few things to point out in which I personally didn't like about the game. Machine Zone has a horrible customer service dept. they don't respond when you tell them about technical difficulties with their software. During kill events lots of defense players get rallied and try to put a shield up but it says you have an active March out so you can't, nor can you teleport away. They tell you to restart the game and that if that doesn't solve it then it must just be the lag from your bad connections. They blame our connection for their incapable game server that they use to make hundreds of thousands of dollars.. With all that money couldn't they come out with something a little more dependable? After all, it's WE the consumers who provide you a cash flow profit. Mz doesn't care about the game nor do they care about the players in it. They only care for money. They know how to make a good game, the money, thousands of fans, yet can they invest into something? That's where dedication is needed so I'd go with NO! 😂😂 that's all.. Just thought I'd give a report since their stupid pop up was so eager to find out what I think of this game. 😘☝🏻️👆🏻👌🏻
