This game is literally late at everything nothing matches up
Is it a glitch or is it normal

Every time I hit the punch button a couple times while I don’t move it will jump

Amazing game

It’s an awesome game I’m killing it even though I just started! LOL
ONLINE DUEL IS FAKE
by Knelson23 on 2019/07/15 17:03
Nobody is really playing against real people. I can click duel, start and pause it for 30mins , come back later and keep fighting.😂😂 Y’all bs and I don’t fw the scam🖕🏽
for you
by maxthe god on 2019/07/15 15:15
your game so amazing
Good but getting scammed on booster packs
by levito112 on 2019/07/15 14:46
Super fun game! Really love it! I have 6200 power and still am not bored. But just today I got scammed 2000 gems because the legion legendary pack said it was free and then when I got it it charged me almost all my gems! I only have 375 gems! Please fix this! And if you can give me my gems back. Those boosters are nowhere near worth that amount if you want to buy them. I would be fine for like 1000 back. I got good stuff but I had no intention of ever buying one of those packs. Thanks! Great game but fix that glitch!
Absolutely horrible game
by NuggetOfGold on 2019/07/15 13:33
The game is an absolute cash grab, It will make you rage with all of the bots and want to delete it. You may think you escape from the bots with Duels. The simple truth is you don’t. You are not fighting real players with creative names. You are fighting generated bots that will pause the moment you hit the pause button. The bosses are near impossible to beat without spending money to beat them, with the “Sarge” its just idiotic, you have to rage your heart out just to beat his 1st form, you beat him then supprise. He has unlimited shadow energy and beats you to a pulp with the generated combo. The only option you have, is to run from him, why? Because he has a form where he becomes unstunnable. He beats you up and tosses you around as if you where a rag doll. Now if you read to this point you should know the simple truth of the game, But in general it is a decent game with good graphics and no ads, and hopefully that will never change..
P2w
by ccxxigdfiuf on 2019/07/15 01:23
This game is honestly pay to win.In events the opponents are way too hard to defeat,I got knocked down and could not get up until I had 1/5 of my health left.Also this game constantly spams you with ads and things to buy.Honestly this would be a great game if it wasn’t so pay to win
It keeps Not giving me the Daily Pack
by Mr.Supermann on 2019/07/14 22:35
Everytime I press look inside the Daily Pack And then go back to collect the pack the pack Disappears and makes me Use 100 gems 🙄😓
It’s ok still needs work
by cheewre on 2019/07/14 15:24
I think this game is really fun but it has its moments like when your fighting some opponents very important opponents you can be winning at the beginning than all of a sudden their strength is x10 like they do damage that they were never doing before than beat you 3 rounds in a row and also in some fights you can be fighting and than you’ll just be standing there doing nothing like the buttons don’t work I don’t know if anyone else is having these issues but to me it’s frustrating and feels like a waste of time sometimes.
Also,
by 904Savage on 2019/07/13 19:24
Be prepared to enter duels where they match make you against people leagues above you in gear to the point you can’t even scratch there health bar. 👎🏼
Good game but
by Rabbit24213 on 2019/07/13 15:42
The game is good but you need to fix the game cause I believe if I'm over somebody head they cant hit me
Pay to Win
by FR3NCHYツ on 2019/07/13 13:54
The game is good to extent, it is good for wasting time and battery. Also it’s good if you want to waste your money. In other terms it’s pay to win basically as you progress deeper into the game.
Why do we have to be a character we don’t want to in the side quest
by Theglitchesofthisgame on 2019/07/13 09:15
It’s making this game more frustrating than it should be and when you’re tying to attack that vampire, it does more combos to you. Literally tried to dodge but got him more after I tried to dodge it
Best game ever
by cooljuicebox13 on 2019/07/13 07:51
This game is so cool who ever made this bro make more plz everyone get this game👌this game so cool so much action.
Good but every story character is a spammer
by hh gvgg on 2019/07/12 22:31
I love the game but around when you get to the Greta mission every character starts spamming. Bolo took me almost 3 weeks to beat because he crits you and shoves you in the floor and he knocks you out every time. Even a first strike was him jamming me into the floorboards and still knocked me out right away. It isn’t even a shadow ability either!!! He jams you in a floorboard every time and one shots you. If you fix spamming gets five stars. (Maybe an energy bar would work and take out bolos ability

Really in pvp look at the difference 11325 vs 19567
by sengdeng on 2019/07/12 17:49
Why do you do this fix your pvp because your game is broken and you nerf so many stuff and make it harder and is this the same like if I have my status like 11325 and I vs some one like 16567 to 19564 why do you make it so hard just to do this when we vs some so hard and FIX YOUR PVP🤬
Good but...
by dhdhdhsjdjwjs on 2019/07/12 17:24
This game is really challenging but it’s unfair how the game works...
This game is just a cheat and bs
by wyfbro on 2019/07/12 04:43
They match you up with other players that have a power lvl that like 200 above yours, the card packs are completely unfair and they barely give any good stuff, and basically everyone is stronger than you in this game unless you spend actual money, although the graphics and fighting is great. Also other enemies can abuse you while your on the ground or trying to get back up so have fun with that cuz they do it very often.
Abhorrent Matchmaking
by Nancy mon on 2019/07/11 22:57
Online Duels consistently match me with opponents well beyond my gear level, allowing 2-3 hits to kill me whereas I can spend an entire match whittling down opponents health bit by bit. Ruins the game for me as online play is the only option when campaign missions are marked as “impossible”.
I JUST WASTED MY MONEY
by Cherelyn00 on 2019/07/11 21:47
I just spent $12 on this game and I got new powerful armor and weapons and I beat a boss with them but when I went to one of the new modes snd tried to defeat the boss on there I was doing the SAME damage I was doing on the boss before I paid $12 and it is highly disappointing that I paid $12 on this game when I could have went to a WHOLE OTHER GAME.
The duels
by assassinfanforlife on 2019/07/11 17:14
The duels in this game are one of the worst, mostly because in this game you can just pay to win basically so your basically going to be 10 times weaker than your opponent because they bought stuff, so basically change it so that we don’t fight people with the same amount of trophies as us but by there power level
I love ❤️ dis game
by thecoolcid on 2019/07/11 14:50
So a long time ago I played shadow fight 2 but now with shadow fight 3😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😱😱😱😱😱😱😱 I LOVE IT. ✋HAVE FIVE
Trash
by lilpugbg54 on 2019/07/11 14:12
Your game is really hard you put level 3 on hard and you hardly have any shadow energy i will like the shadow fight 2 than this 😡😡😡
Best game ever
by fjkyflyl on 2019/07/10 23:38
This is literally the best game ever! Shadow fight two had clunky controls and they’re super slow. But shadow fight three has fast controls a better story line and better rewards!!! And therefore is the best game ever!!!
Just saying

Best mobile game I have played in my life

There is nothing bad about this game best game of 2019
Difficulty
by Davidlholt on 2019/07/10 15:44
I rate it two stars mainly because match making is very frustrating .I'm sick and tired of getting someone who is way powerful than me and my attacks don’t do anything or I come across someone who defeats me in three hits or I hate when I get someone who is way lower than me and don’t stand a chance. I hate the inventory and it’s not organized at all. And the story mode is frustrating because the ai are too strong and it takes forever to get decent stuff or the decent stuff you just got doesn’t help
Paywall smacked across the face
by This game is axx on 2019/07/10 12:52
Literally the game just shouts out pay to win. I understand free games need money but like holy heck, you can barely get through THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME without the constant ads of pay this and that. Little did you know that you have to pay to play, can’t progress without having to wait a whole day while getting like 5 fights in and no being able to go farther. Great concept horrible execution.
NERF SARGE
by iCryptix on 2019/07/10 00:36
I cant give much of a review because I have been stuck fighting Sarge forever. The game is great other wise, but getting better gear from duels and side missions is an other thing you guys could change. I know I’m not the only one asking for this, but Sarge is just to over powered and needs a nerf.
This game is crap
by ZeroStarsBoiiii on 2019/07/09 22:01
This game is crap the thing that I hate the most about this dumb game is the events.The events are impossible to freakin beat so until they make the events easier then this dumb game has lost me 💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Buggy
by uwotBajur on 2019/07/09 21:38
Its pretty fun, has a lot to learn, as a time wasting f2p. I think the timers are quite wonky though cause the free stack always seems to say two hours later....for nine hours straight.
Best game ever
by cool emote game on 2019/07/09 20:03
Very good
Good but a little too hard
by ⓈⒹⒹⓄ on 2019/07/09 03:26
I really really love the game, but the last stage in chapter one and the second fangirl challenge are a little to hard in my opinion, the buttons for attacks in battle don’t always respond when I tap them, and I think the battles should be put fairly I hustled started and being put against really good players, but otherwise then that this is an amazing game and the graphics are great.
👎🏻
by Leezey1996 on 2019/07/08 22:51
Can’t get past the first main mission...
Just my humble opinion
by goose from tiny valley on 2019/07/08 20:52
Great game just wish there was a lil less downloading
Too hard
by Devilsthrill on 2019/07/08 14:13
Was enjoying the game until I started losing every single fight I attempted. The game encourages me to spend money so that my character can grow stronger. Pretty much unless you spend money on this game, you're going to get to a point where you lose every battle and that's boring.
Ends up pay to continue
by arodd6 on 2019/07/08 09:19
About 2-3 hours in (depending on time) you get stuck against either an impossible fight against a dude who regenerates or someone else way above your equipment level, which means you have to bust out the credit card if you want to get past the roadblock. Had such high hopes from Shadow fight 2.
The lag is actually breaking my iPad
by shadow fight 2 review on 2019/07/08 00:12
Okay so I’ve been playing this game. Fun yes, but oh my god is it laggy. It’s been so laggy before that it actually caused my iPad to not open any apps. Now at first I just thought it was the iPad, but after a few times of having to restart my iPad over and over, I found out it was the game. So if you could put something in the settings to lower the quality of the game to make it less laggy or anything I will make this review a 5 star, but at this moment I’m favoring shadow fight 2, which is a shame considering the potential of this game
Really aggravating
by Ultrathorjeff on 2019/07/07 17:56
I try to restart my story mode and character but when I think I am able to restart story mode it tells me that it found my data, so please give players a choice if we want to restart
This game is hot trash
by RReptiXX on 2019/07/07 14:23
The graphics are meh, and the bots need to be way less overpowered. Warning, according to this game, “Hard” mode is now “Impossible” mode. Plus Shadow Fight 2 is wayyyyyyy better. (Sry I sound like a hater, but this was just my opinion of the game.)
I lost my progress!
by ryaserdn on 2019/07/06 19:02
So I’ve been play the game for three years now and I deleted it but when I redownloaded the game my progress was reset! Please fix this and I will rate it five stars :)
Glitched.
by Logan_0809 on 2019/07/06 12:52
Okay, so. I was really close to completing the game. Until, it closed me out of the game. I decided to get back to the game, but it was just a pitch-white screen. Please fix this, and I might rate a 5 star if it gets fixed.
Great game but majorly frustrating
by gavinator54321 on 2019/07/06 07:49
Love this game. I’ve played the previous two shadow fight games and this game has made a huge leap in advancements. The game is very fun, however, the difficulty curve is (at times) infuriatingly difficult and has lead me to lose interest in playing the game at all sometimes. I would like to see improvements on some small bugs and a re-evaluation on the difficulty curve for sure.

Im being serious about your game experience
by Edades_Fam on 2019/07/05 23:39
What I feel about this is that every time I get into a match make I always go up against AI’s thats are like 400+ damage points above me and It’s so hard to try and get trophies. Why its so hard to get trophies you may ask, it’s because of the fact they are not real people and I do so little damage to the point where I do like a 13x combo of they opponent with head hits and critical and next thing you know I get hit 2 or 3 times and I die, lacking health and damage.
👍🏽
by Wraith Face on 2019/07/05 20:25
Takes too long to get things done... i don’t wanna wait 5 hours for 1 rare chest that has like 2 commons 🤦🏽‍♂️ gets annoying, and the upgrades are expensive i don’t really know y I gotta have more powerful common gear when I have uniques and legendaries 🤷🏽‍♂️ kind of stupid tbh but it’s a good game.
The best game
by fredgsmer😩399 on 2019/07/05 20:01
I’ve played shadow fight 2 it was the best game i Fact i still even play it it’s just the best game ever I’m playing shadow fight right now i just now heard about shadow fight three and it is already so awsome i Thing you should play it👍🏽
An amazing game that is ruined
by Vhoskelian on 2019/07/05 19:22
I am a huge fan of the original shadow fight 2, and was super excited to see this one. However, after playing several hours of it, here’s why it is a massive disappointment: 1.) The gameplay is pretty great, and of all the iOS fighting games out there, this is the best I’ve seen. That’s why it’s upsetting to see a well-designed game converted into a micro transaction machine that spits on its own potential. It’s a pathetic system. I would gladly pay 10$ to play this game. I will not pay 60$ to purchase gems that will help me progress 1/6th of the way through the game. It’s not a 60$ game. 2.) After 5-10 minutes, there is nothing to do in the game besides duel or play quests that are massively overpowered and which yield almost no usable rewards, because quests and survival mode are locked behind timers that often last 24 hours. I wouldn’t mind grinding in duels, but that is pointless because... 3.) The dueling system is not scaled properly. Scale the dueling system properly. I should not be matched with a “player” who’s equipment rating is 400 points higher than mine. Ranking up is often one step up, two steps back. If I am 1300 ER and am beaten by said 2000+ ER and rank down as a result, my next match should not be against a 2200+ ER enemy. This is lazy development and actually dissuades people from buying gems because they will still be matched unfairly no matter their equipment ratings. It disappoints me to know I will not be able to enjoy this game until another sequel comes out and they turn it into a normal all-inclusive game like they did with Shadow Fight 2. I will look forward to that, but until then I would not recommend wasting your time on this.
Great! But maybe one thing could be added
by TheInsaneHat on 2019/07/05 19:12
This game is great. It looks great, it’s fun to play, and it may be better than the last one. But I feel one thing should be changed. I think it’s unfair for duelists that have to go up against players who have such a greater power level then the other. Like I think it’s unfair that you’d put a 4074 against a 4589. If the developers could fix it to where maybe you have someone in more of your range of power that’d be great!
The vampires
by kdjdjdjejejejsjkdkdkdkddkd on 2019/07/05 17:19
I love this game But there’s just one problem that pisses me off about the game it’s the vampires even with one little hit they get there health back and it’s annoying as all hell fix that please besides that i love the game
Cool game, feature suggstions
by radical awesome dude on 2019/07/05 09:12
Love this game ever since the first pne but I have suggestions. There’s so much cool stuff in terms of armor and head wear but I have some suggestions for a better experience. Would love to see the option to hide my helmet so I can see my characters face. Also I would also love the option to overlay outfits over others or even overlay as skins, because some are my favorites but instead I’m stuck with a certain outfit because of the stats even though it could be rather ugly and not cool.
Stupid matchmaking
by YoungRobThe God on 2019/07/05 08:10
When I was playing I was a 600 overall and facing 698 overall hopefully you can fix it
Warning!!!!
by lil swoooooozy on 2019/07/05 03:00
Don’t buy the special offers, it’s a scam!!!
This game is good
by Asjewjqiaoanwb on 2019/07/04 18:56
This game is good and all but when it comes to duels it can be impossible because for example you are at 1559 and your opponent is 1900 it would be unbalanced and you would lose
Rigged so it’s raging
by Like a boss swagger on 2019/07/04 17:51
First of the bosses are very hard. You have to pay or buy with some real money so you can get good stuff and so the boss level will be normal and if you don’t pay you will have to wait a day for the shop to change and that would take a lot of time. To be honest the game is fun but you can only level up on the story which is bs. Taking the quests won’t help on the boss too because it would be the level of insane or impossible at that point. I can see why people rage on this game because it’s so unfair. The duels are also unfair. The trophies only matter and not the amount of power. I nearly lost 100 trophies because of that.
Good but
by Jona Wena on 2019/07/04 16:17
I gave this 4 stars because I’m on the shadow recruit thing that drains your shadow power but I can’t beat it it’s technically impossible for me
Stupid game
by Rfvqaz on 2019/07/04 13:59
Repetitive and monotone. Despite the graphics every round in this game is the same. They just play with stats making your enemy stronger and faster and your player weaker and slower. So all you need is just to purchase gems and stuff at some point of the game. Deleted
Graphics
by eba1067 on 2019/07/04 12:01
Best graphic for fighting game.i really liked it
Suggestions and feedback
by Deno242 on 2019/07/04 08:09
First off there is Way too much micro transactions. gems makes coins obsolete, the packs cost gems an the best items cost gems it should be coins to buy new weapon packs and shadow energy to upgrade them, gems should be used for shortening wait times. Overall gameplay is great except for the fact of waiting for side quests and survivals those modes should just be continuous why do I have to wait 7 hours just to play one quest or round of survival, that makes absolutely no sense. Events yeah but side quests especially they need to be fully continuous. If you can’t decode gems out of the game bring back fight energy use the gems for purchasing gear packs, coins for upgrades since they’re easier to earn an upgrades are always required to have the best chance, and use shadow energy as fight energy where it’s aquatinted to the players level so each regular story quest cost 50% of shadow energy side quest cost 25% survival fights cost 75% and boss fights cost 100% so with the players level, a level 1 would have 100% shadow energy total to use for main, side, or survival quests, level 2=200%, level 3=300%,etc. basically the higher your level the more you can fight. A fully depleted shadow energy bar or icon refills after 2hrs no matter the level. Cause you want to give players a break from the game but not to long of a break that they forget it till the next day/week/month.
I loved your games
by koltons reivue on 2019/07/04 07:14
I thought if I wrote one of these you would read it but probably not great game though
F**k u guys
by Fargldflicle on 2019/07/04 03:01
This game is so cool prolly the best one out but clearly this game just wants to beat u down with ridiculous enemies that u can only defeat if u buy gear since u can’t level up any way except the main story, completely ruined by the progression system
Please fix the absurd difficulty of bosses
by BenTQP on 2019/07/04 02:43
Now lemme tell ya, I’ve played the game since it’s release and it’s been fun till the end. I would love to give it 5 stars but there’s one more problem that I’m sure everybody faces. BOSSES. Now I like bosses as their unique enemies but some of them have abilities that are game breaking, unfair, or straight up stupid. The bosses now are harder than what it used to be. Say for example Xiang Tzu or Iolanda are absurdly stupid as they have abilities that are straight up unfair combined with the insane damage. For a regular player, it would take them days to weeks to beat them for the difficulty. The insane damage makes it worse. Now, it feels like the game is P2W. Unless you have decent legendary equipment, the bosses are close to impossible for regulars. But nice save for adding the chests sand rewarding some legendaries after some missions, but please fix the bosses. Don’t make it too easy or at the same time too hard.

Duels
by theasomdj on 2019/07/02 23:10
I love this game but it’s just that the duel is a little to hard I mean I have 2765 shadow energy And the person that I’m going against has 3500 shadow energy.like I said I love this game but they need to do something about that
This game i fun

Pay to win scheme game
by Chiefakid on 2019/07/01 23:09
Spent 60$ and the progression was cool until a different level then it’s the same pay to win scheme. Repetitive and boring.

Training and move set?
by ATHJR335 on 2019/07/01 18:09
The game is great okay I love it but if you can add training and the characters move set that will be AWESOME also I was wondering if you could do something for the 4th of July like a event and it has five stages and if you pass all five you get 3 legendary things a weapons armor and a helmet but please add training and a move set please and thank you other than that the game is great!!
Not fair
by dawgie12345 on 2019/07/01 13:44
The enemy keeps comboing and you get 2-3 hits before he attacks you again
Fix
by bhdksksjf on 2019/07/01 04:13
Why it’s that when I try to hit the opponent he’s able to hit first even he’s on the ground it’s seems broken the keep hitting you and my character can’t move
It’s too hard
by shadowfight overall review on 2019/07/01 02:46
Why is the level with sarge so hard and why is it that he has the shadow powers the whole majority of the match I hope they fix it but until then one star
This game is just micro transactions

There are too many micro transactions in this game. The game just gets impossible at some points forcing you to either buy or stay there forever. This game is a pay to win game and it really tries to tempt you into swiping your credit card for that extra gear. Its kind of like gameloft and MC5, buy or get owned by everyone else. Sadly there is a multiplayer in this game and you should now be able to buy loot from day 1 and be able to one-shot everything. I see the potential in the game, but as long as these micro transactions are around, it won’t improve. Notice that the best games in the market need skill, not your credit card.

Perfect but stupid
by mustepga on 2019/06/30 20:10
Ok so, the game is pretty addicting and it’s fun asf. I really love it and it’s one of my fav games ever. But one thing that gets me upset is the stupid duel fights. I mean why would you give me someone that’s 10 times my lvl that’s just plain stupid and annoying
This game is so addictive
by ijyhgt on 2019/06/30 19:45
When i first went to the Apple Store looking for a game I wanted to like get a game that was like a fighting game I came across this game and I was like oh let’s try it so when I tried it and I couldn’t stop it’s just so fun and addicting I love it this is a game that I would definitely recommend to play five stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Please make it possible to not get shocked after 1-5 hits when you start a match
by legend2345765 on 2019/06/29 15:28
Make your bots easier because I got hit for a 8 combo in survival and instantly I died because you guys are so desperate for money that you make your bots near impossible when you get knocked down so you make people buy better stuff with real money so people get 100 bucks so you can buy good enough stuff to get past level 4 in the secret fight and buy armor first because that is the most important thing in the game so you don’t die from a from a 13 combo twice because I lost more than half my full health on easy because the bots know how to shock you in the first 3 seconds of the match so watch out for the desperate greedy developers that are too lazy to make more armor and why do the bots fight twice as fast than me because I was fighting a bot with the same weapon and I attacked them he did the same move and he hit me first and fix the bots get to hit first bug where you become a ghost and go throw the bots but they can hit you when they don’t even hit you and you have to go half way through them to actually hit them
Good, but
by Smith, Chris on 2019/06/29 15:28
Overall the game is good, but upgrading gear is a slow process and some of the events are absolutely ridiculous. Specifically the creepy party event that’s happening now. There’s a difference between difficult and impossible, and the creepy party one is impossible. It’s a problem when a good string of combos does about 1/4 of the enemy’s health and they kill you with one, two hits

by DrJaeg on 2019/06/28 19:12
Cool game, events seem a bit rigged. Equipment is HELLA important. You could beat a better geared person but that might mean hitting then 5 times as many times before they land a very few good blows.

Fun for a little but if you don’t pay money it’s pretty much impossible
by fungametho on 2019/06/28 14:05
Pay to win game was fun in the beginning don’t get this game unless you want to waste your money and time
Fix it
by mikeknight1256 on 2019/06/28 03:29
This game needs fix.the beginning of the game is good it’s until you you get to chapter 6 you get no good armor out of the store only trash things most of the time . and some of the rewards of the side guest are terrible you get legion things when your in the heralds. When you fight in the story the enemy is always in impossible insane or hard and you can’t do nothing about because you get legion in the store while in heralds then the legion armor is very old
This is a bit rigged.
by shitismoreemtertainingthanthis on 2019/06/28 00:18
So...great game, honestly! It’s just rigged. Your events say something about equipment and skill are all that matter but that’s not true now is it? You could take on a mate with legendary armour and weapon with great skill and and get beat time and time again. You’ll need to work on the game mechanics if you want people to enjoy your game ya know?
Amazing!
by seattlepug 08 on 2019/06/27 21:55
I have been playing this game for about two years and I still play it! You can gems,coins, and money to get good gear right away but don’t worry you can still get gear without paying! Also, don’t worry about getting destroyed by others way above you’re league, you will be fighting people around you’re power and skill level. I highly recommend this game to anybody who likes fighting games. thank you for reading this!
Really Good Hardcore Game
by Ultraviolet134 on 2018/05/09 02:44
Ok so I am just going to get to the point. This game is really good as long as you aren’t really into video games or aren’t really dedicated. I am almost at the end of the game and it is constantly being upgraded and expanded so I have more and more to play. This game is requires more skill rather than what weapons you have so here’s a tip: chose the weapon you are most successful with. Anyway, this game has smooth colorful 3D graphics and realistic physics. BE WARNED: THIS GAME CAN MAKE YOU RAGE AS YOU GET STUCK ON AN IMPOSSIBLE CATEGORY LEVEL AND HAVE TO GRIND THE MINI QUESTS FOR BETTER LOOT. However, if you are good with your weapon you can defeat an opponent labeled impossible. Some say this game is only good to the point where you are almost maxed out and it is impossible to upgrade, here’s what I say; if you just stick with it and play to your heart’s content you will excel that the game. The storyline is easy to understand and reallly in-depth so kudos to you Nikki Limited for making a great campaign. Also, the variety of weapons and armor is amazing and the creator clearly but a lot of time and effort into this game. Overall I would say this is a good game for people who love RPGS and Duel Combat style games and for people who are dedicated and willing to persevere through challenging levels and challenges. The game keeps a good plot and the mechanics are easy and the graphics are beautiful. Well done Nikki Limited!
The micro transactions aren’t that bad and here’s why
by Baksheesh and on 2017/11/29 06:41
I played Shadow Fight 2 and comparing this one to the previous I would say it improves in some areas and in others it’s lacking. Some improvements I think is the combat. I personally like the different fighting styles with each faction. Some have strengths and their own weaknesses as well. One think that needs improvement on the the weapon balancing. I feel there are just some weapons that have combos that can be a bit much at times. I don’t really have a problem with the micro-transactions. I haven’t spend any real money into this game and I don’t plan on it. I think people are being harsh about them in this game. It’s a free game you guys. This is how they have to make money. I can’t relate to the people who say this game is pay to win. Of course there is gonna be that super duper legendary armor and weapons that you can only get through buying the card packs, but having the over powered armor sort of ruins the point of the game. Answer this question: If every person you fight is easy and not a challenge, then is the game still fun? I think most of you would say no it’s not. To the others, then you’re gonna have to spend money. In conclusion, this is a great game that shouldn’t be looked down upon for having micro transactions. If you think it’s bothering you that much then just play another free game.
Better rewards
by Yungwill1 on 2019/03/17 07:38
I like the game but it’s really hard to get any epic and legendary equipment/perks. I feel like you gotta but them in the shop. I just feel like when there’s some type of event, the value of the rewards should be way better. There should be less rare equipment/keys and more epic and legendary stuff. Because when I win rare stuff I don’t feel like I won anything because I always get rare stuff through missions, side quests and duels. I also think that players should be rewarded better based off of the difficulty of the mission. For example, there have been times where it took me a long time to beat a boss on insane or impossible. Then when I finally beat it I get rare equipment. If I win an insane or impossible mission I should be getting more gems, epic/legendary equipment, not rare equipment. This should really matter since the game gets harder as you progress. I shouldn’t have to keep buying great things, I should be rewarded well on my hard work. And it’s not like the items are cheap. There’s a lot expensive items in the store but most of the time I can’t get what I want because I don’t have enough money or gems. Like if the game is not gonna reward a lot of gems or money don’t make the items in the store really expensive. This also includes shadow energy. I just don’t understand how I can have legendary items equipped but they will barely hurt the opponent. It doesn’t live to the name.
The game is good but the chapter 4 bosses are way to op
by Johnny cage 54 on 2018/03/30 16:36
Look, this game is really amazing. Like the graphics are so good for an iPhone and just blows most games out the way. The fighting techniques and moves are really awesome too. But here is where the game gets its cons. Yeah the weapons are pretty cool but at the same time some won’t do you justice because if you really play the game and understand it your weapons really depend on range. (for example, if I had a spear and the other guy had a sword I would destroy because I could cheese the whole game by keeping him away from me buh yet still hitting him which also causes a lot of damage.) Also sometimes the game depends on speed of weapons. Like some time you would press the button but don’t hit 4 secs later. That’s a really late reaction time but for lighter weapons they hit right away so I believe the weapons need to be fixed. Also chapter 4 is a little to op because when you verse some of the shadow fighters all they need to do is hit you once or three times and you are already dead while you do not have any armor or good weapons to go against that fighter. It’s like a lose lose situation that is impossible to win. Plus when you receive upgrades it only upgrades that bad stuff in your inventory why don’t the game upgrade the good stuff it doesn’t make any sense. But really just the attacks on chapter 4 character are way to strong and impossible to beat for people who does not have really good stuff in their inventory.
Get your wallet out.
by I surf on 2018/11/16 06:22
Excellent game. The developers have figured out the analytics of pay for play gaming. I do not blame them, I congratulate them. This game has great graphics and modest controls. If you want to play on a budget; STAY with the initial weapons and armor until you MASTER them. Do not get lured into spending money because of defeats. Take your lumps and figure things out in the training room. Be patient and wait for the chests to open based on time, not spending the expensive gems. Enjoy this great game, but don’t even start buying anything. Truly, if you find yourself going to your wallet then uninstall immediately. The initial satisfaction, of being able to beat a heavy boss, will become distasteful after a few more trips to your wallet. Once again, go slow and don’t drool over those tantalizing new weapons they show you. They will only work for a few wins, then back to your wallet. Otherwise, be prepared to spend $$$$$. ($55-$100 before you come to your senses) Also..check critical hit %, on the weapons, early in your upgrades. Get good at those weapons early in your game play. Also focus and upgrade one weapon you are good at. ( one with a good critical hit percent) If you don’t focus on one weapon, you will waste time and later have to use weapons you hate.
Suggestions and feedback
by Deno242 on 2019/07/04 08:09
First off there is Way too much micro transactions. gems makes coins obsolete, the packs cost gems an the best items cost gems it should be coins to buy new weapon packs and shadow energy to upgrade them, gems should be used for shortening wait times. Overall gameplay is great except for the fact of waiting for side quests and survivals those modes should just be continuous why do I have to wait 7 hours just to play one quest or round of survival, that makes absolutely no sense. Events yeah but side quests especially they need to be fully continuous. If you can’t decode gems out of the game bring back fight energy use the gems for purchasing gear packs, coins for upgrades since they’re easier to earn an upgrades are always required to have the best chance, and use shadow energy as fight energy where it’s aquatinted to the players level so each regular story quest cost 50% of shadow energy side quest cost 25% survival fights cost 75% and boss fights cost 100% so with the players level, a level 1 would have 100% shadow energy total to use for main, side, or survival quests, level 2=200%, level 3=300%,etc. basically the higher your level the more you can fight. A fully depleted shadow energy bar or icon refills after 2hrs no matter the level. Cause you want to give players a break from the game but not to long of a break that they forget it till the next day/week/month.
What’s the point?
by pubesandwich on 2018/02/02 06:05
I’ve played this game for hours, minutes at a time, and there is some real problems... I’ll start with the pros- good graphics, (mostly) responsive controls, a few different game types... now the cons- hit detection at times can be arbitrary, it sometimes registers multiple button presses as one long one ( this leads to you foolishly winding up for a huge move only to be interrupted by a jab following a combo) the biggest flaw to me is PROGRESSION. After completing all of the story mode campaigns, I get greeted with “more coming soon” oh come on, was it that hard to make the game so far? Time based objectives in “side missions” will “allow” you to play roughly 4-5 matches per day, which will upgrade your existing equipment or (rarely) grant you new abilities.. “battle” mode is a supposed pvp game where you play an online opponent, and here is where the problem lies. I have found it impossible to reach 1600 battle rating, because every time I get close, it puts me against people with a waaaaay higher rating with way better equipment than I have, so I slowly go up the ladder only to get knocked down 2 pegs. To make it worse, the game gives you “upgrades” in the form of cards, but I find they tend to only upgrade the crappiest gear I have, instead of the better stuff I have, and there is no way to sell the old crap I had when I started. For now, a 3 star review, will review better if they improve the progression, I might even spend real money on it.
Great game, but has some issues.
by Gijchbkb on 2017/12/02 20:54
First of all I would like to say that I genuinely enjoy playing this game. It’s a great way to kill some time when you’re bored. However, this game is not without it’s faults. They’re more noticeable once you get to about chapter 2 in campaign and rank 3 in live fights, which aren’t actually live fights. They are more similar to CATS duel system. They use a players name and equipment, but are A.I. controlled. The biggest problem I have with this game are that once you get to a certain point, it gets to difficult to progress. When you’re at the katana boss in chapter 2 of campaign and at about rank 800 in duels. The way the game works is that you have to play duels to get better equipment to beat the campaign missions which in turn give you the xp needed to unlock higher level equipment also earned from duels. One you get to the guy with the katana you have to play duels to beat him. The problem is that the duel system is designed to keep you in check. It’ll let you win some battles and then give you a guy you can’t beat without better equipment, which you cannot earn without winning duels. Perhaps if chest unlocks were about 3 times shorter you could get equipment faster, but as is your inventory fills with chests so you cannot get more.
Wasted potential by Nekki
by Bezerk Legend on 2017/11/29 06:18
Horrible doesn't even have survival mode it's hard to gain progress and duels are not fairly matched the game gives u barely any money hard to upgrade too and no matter what rank your weapon is or how special it is its weaker than the most common weapons or armor which makes for instance a legendary weapon useless and like I said before hard to gain progress and upgrade gear because there is no other mode that can earn you money accept duel which is cheap and unfair and like 75% of the time your losing to higher ranked players and the duel weapons like the hammers axes or any other duel weapons should be a fast melee weapon and the weapon combos are ridiculous and don't make sense I mean why would u swing a sword upward jump and smack them in the head with it instead of 3 simple chops and I got a legendary chest plate and it's weaker than a rare chest plate and the Tap joy does not work the game gives u barely any gems 💎 and why are swift weapons so slow??? are u a snail or a Ninja? and the shadow attacks are ineffective and yes they are slow too so and you need to add better perks for the heavy armor besides colossal steps and the AI corners you into a wall and beats the crap out of u and you can't do ANYTHING so this game has to many problems so don't download this game!!!!!!
I like the game a lot.
by Cbabynurse on 2018/09/07 22:37
Personally, I have played “Shadow Fight” since Shadow Fight 2 first released. As I saw the trailers and ads for Shadow Fight 3, I got really excited. Whenever I got my hands of Shadow Fight 3, I played it for hours. Right now I am so happy for 2 main reasons: One being that the game is actually difficult. In the second game, you could defeat Impossible rated levels with ease once you got used to the controls. In the third game, however, that is not the case. While yes, you can defeat Impossibles, but the game is much more difficult. The second good thing is when you get to the end of the game, instead of just doing raids like in Shadow Fight 2, you actually get events for special armors, and you also get to do duels whenever you want. A third thing that completely blows this game out of the water for me is no energy. For anyone not familiar with energy from Shadow Fight 2, you could do 5 battles until your energy ran out, and it took 20 minutes to get one energy back. In other words, you could play the game for long. The last part of the game that is nice is fancier graphics. In the second game, it was literally black, like a shadow. Now it has nice graphics, which I guess just makes the game more fun to look at.
I love this game, but it has a huge issue.
by Curt E. on 2017/12/09 15:37
I’ll keep it short because nobody likes walls of text. This game is extremely fun, has great graphics and fantastic gameplay. The micro transactions aren’t forced on you at all, and on top of everything it actually has a story with fun bosses. However, the weapon balancing is off-the-charts bad. It’s like Rock Paper Scissors, almost, except way worse, so ignore the analogy. I was getting annihilated in PvP by Spears when I had an axe, because I had no range. Then I unlocked a spear and I annihilated everyone else in PvP because I did have range (and a BS attack that basically guarantees a free hit). Now that my level is higher, I’m running into people with curved swords that can trap me in automatic 4-hit combos, then start over again because I have literally no time to attack, their attacks are just way too fast. The shadow abilities are a little ridiculous, too, simply for the fact they are 100% unable to be blocked. Anyways, apologies for the wall of text after I said I wouldn’t give it. This game is genuinely very fun, and probably my favorite I have installed right now, this issue is just too big to ignore, and it makes many fights feel unfair, or at a disadvantage simply because of what you’ve earned from crates, which is a huge no-no. I would absolutely still recommend this game to anyone, but the developers NEED to fix the balancing.
You don’t have to pay a cent
by Redwood Rogue on 2018/05/26 17:37
Being honest here, this is perhaps one of the best mobile games I have ever played. Yes, I see the problems with pvp and items, but that was my only setback. Even so, those problems were fixed by the latest update. To the people stuck on side quests, equipment is not the entire point of a game, you need true skill. This can be done via training to see what fighting style is right for you. I am at approximately a power level of 5,900 and used to fight people with up to six hundred power levels higher than me. Most of the time, I won. To the people stuck on the main quest, keep trying. It’ll work out. I could not tell you how many times I had to fight against a boss to defeat it, but I pulled through. I have completed all four chapters from determination, skill, and of course, a bit of power. I have not once bought gems to help my progress , yet now I am on top pvp rank, which is now currently Legend, the eleventh dan. I would also like to mention I am thirteen years old. Most of you are older than I am, so you have no excuse whatsoever. For those who are younger than me, I want to wish that you don’t give up on this game. It has potential and never ceases to amaze me.
Waste/ takes little skill just money honestly
by Cancer game reviewer on 2018/04/19 21:52
This game is a waste of time it’s more of a game where you just open chests with a long wait time you can’t progress fast and have fun because you only level up through story but to play each level you have to have a even higher power level which you get through chest and most of the time the good weapons require a higher level. Also you can’t progress with pure skill because every time you beat one story level the next part of the story is literally impossible. Also you have to wait for more side quests which are the only thing to get better weapons but they also have a long wait time. Yes the game is fun but that’s when either your evenly matched or have a higher power level. With not being able to progress with pure skill you can’t because attack’s others have when they are a lot higher level then you can take your whole health bar down with a simple combo move. It’s also pretty hard to dodge because once you mess up a dodge you get knocked down and they can hit you down again before you have the chance to do something. I’m fine with waiting for chest but maybe they could shorten some. Also I think you should be able to level up weapons and armor through multiplayer. Another thing is adding friends so you can fight them. I like the training aspect but maybe you could have her fight back with out damaging you so you could fight infinitely.
You will rage
by Fraktuss on 2018/03/25 05:20
Everyone, please save yourself an anger management class because this game made me rage more than any other game I have ever played in my life. There are bad bugs and sometimes your attacks phase through the enemies and than they get a clear shot. There are spammers that use specific weapons like the naginata and glaive to spam the same button again and again. It always gives the AI the advantage so like if you swing a heavy attack it will either phase through them or go into slow mo but make them a smidge faster and they escape and screw you up. I wish that the creators will see this and fix these issues because I mostly love this game but it makes me rage so hard I get dizzy. The dev. Make it very hard to beat AI when in farther levels without using your own money to buy extra packs. I know, that’s what games usually do but I wish that they made legendary and epic packs cheaper so you wouldn’t be stuck on a level for days and stop feeding off people’s savings. There will also be a weapon on display in a menu but it doesn’t actually make it possible to get it like I see a katana on the cover but never have I seen it in game. Do you guys see where it says, “earn epic items” if you scroll a bit in this menu above, there is a common iaido katana that is gold and black but it is not possible to get as of yet.
Meh
by DJ Chopstix 2020 on 2018/07/04 06:21
This is one of the better fighting games on a mobile device I’ve found so far. The graphics are well done and the game mechanics are well done too. But the game also have many issues I would like to address. First of, this thing lags hard than running highest graphics setting on a farming simulator on a MacBook. And it’s too the point that I had to leave the game and clear it from history.(even on low graphics) Second the game has a hard progression. There were times where I was a literal sitting duck getting beat in one to three shots by my opponents both in story and online. I had to carefully make every move and spam certain attacks in order to counter the cpu. And not only that, but the loot you get from wins are either little to none or dirt useless. I understand the story mode is still coming out with new chapters and by that point you should have a decent gear set up.(Mine is really good due to them being from events) To sum this game up, it’s a really good and well done fighting game for both new players and experienced gamers. But be warned that you will come to a point where you feel like you need to buy gems to continue on. So far I haven’t had to need because I was patience enough to attempt the impossible fights and slowly fight my way through the storyline. But all in all it’s a decent game.
Best mobile game ever!
by s sc dominater on 2019/03/31 02:33
I give this game a 5/5 because if how good it is it my not be that good to most people but to me this is the best mobile game in the world like most mobile games i would play when i first get it for only one week but then after that i stop playing it forever but this game is not like that the only problems i have is the way you have to hit opponents to actually hurt them like sometimes i get a little frustrated because i hit somebody and it does nothing then the opponent its me and im not talking about when i try to attack a opponent with a legion weapon while she/he is attacking im just saying i think you should make it like you can make it so when you do an attack and you don’t do a direct attack just make it so it will lower the chances of critical or shock but this is really the only problem i have besides when opponents don’t hit you but they still do damage sometimes this game is very dramatic onetime i was fighting someone and they had a spear and it was when i was close to dying so it was in slow motion then I realized that the spear did not actually hit me you dont actually have to fix this but i would really like you to it would just make your game better
Great Job Devs!
by TinjaMan on 2017/11/29 21:14
Ok, so in my last review, I had given this game a rating of only 2 stars because the control responsiveness was lacking to the point that it made the game just unenjoyable. The devs listened and along with other bug fixes, they released an update that finally made the game live up to its true potential. From the original Shadow Fight, till now, the game has come a long way. I’ve been a fan since the beginning but this installment really takes the cake. I’m absolutely hooked. Once you learn the control mechanics, and strategies your moves, this game becomes truly addicting. The story mode may seem challenging, but that’s because it is. The developers made the game so you don’t advance to quickly, by having the player perform pvp battles in order to gain cards that strengthen the players build to advance to the next chapters. You can either buy gems to unlock better cards or speed up chests, or just fight pvp battles and wait to unlock chests. Either way, there’s no need for p2w. The game automatically matches you with people with the current gear score as you so there is not a lot, if any, unfair advantages. This game is a must for fans of the fighting game genre. Highly recommend.
Not impressed
by TheJLB8483 on 2018/04/27 01:15
Alright so you can’t move the quest line along unless you upgrade gears. Fine. Can’t upgrade gears well enough unless you continually grind the duel arena and get the chests. Common chests takes 3 hours to unlock... 4 spots, 3 hours for the lowest chest. But get this. The dueling system is based on your duel rating. This means someone can be twice as far in the quest line and have much better gear and because they have a lower duel rating, you’ll be put up against them. You will have no chance. I have legendary gear from the second faction. I can hit an opponent repeatedly in the head and barely do damage but they can hit me with one good combo and that’s it for me. Equipment from the third or even fourth faction and I still go against them just because they have a lower duel rating. I have a legendary chain weapon and the basic combo can have up to 4 head hits in a row and if I’m up against someone with third faction gear, I only do a quarter of the damage to them than they would do with one critical hit with or without weapon. Had a duel, 60 seconds into the duel and I get them down to 25% without me taking a hit and then shock them. They do one punch and take 80% of my health from full. I wish I was exaggerating. It’s absolutely ridiculous. Fix this so that people in the same part of the quest line duel each other.

by Add in More on 2018/02/19 05:11
You can get pretty far with F2P but after like weeks of playing this, you probably get screwed over. One, the matchmaking obviously will screw you over (Clash Royale Style) where you get matched with people with legendary gear and weapons with 900 item power compared to your 700 item power with rare armor. Two, the bosses in the main quests are very annoying and almost impossible to beat if you are F2P. For Example, Itu can fully regenerate unless you go behind him and attack but his weapon combo can literally destroy you in 3 seconds. Three, some weapons are just over powered like the spear for legion. It has a move where you can hit your enemies 5 feet away without getting hit. Sabers have a fast stream combo which if you get into your health immediately drops from 100% to 30%. Finally, shadow abilities are really overpowered. For example, an uppercut ability combined with a rift repeated is going to bring down an enemy. Trust me, I already tried and destroyed some people NEAR my item power. It has a good concept, but some changes will be needed if this game wants to have a good life time. Edit: It’s terrible, match making kills everyone. Apparently blocking a Katana hit does 1 / 3 dmg of your health. Kicking is very slow. There’s many bad thing about the game that I could name but I won’t. Rating went from 3 to 1 stars. Don’t waste your time playing the game. Trust me the pay to win is way worse than Clash Royale ( Dead game ).
Some problems
by Buzzwood on 2017/12/14 19:31
I liked to play shadow fight 2 on insane and some times impossible. I had to do fast paced combos and then try to stay out of the enemies reach. When I tried it in this game it really backfired. Kicking is sloooooow. People could heavy attack me while I’m still trying to kick! There are no combos anymore and just swipes, and if you get caught in the corner with someone more powerful than you then your dead. Block, dodging, and attacking doesn’t get you out of that loophole. I know the game just came out and it will hopefully improve, but these problems are just hard to deal with. Edit: Its been a while and kicks do improve later on in the game, but enemies just spam a combo that is out of your range and does a lot of damage even if your blocking. I’m still playing this game hoping for an update to these things and when it comes I’ll change my review. Edit Once Again: I finished all the levels so far, so I go into pvp. I then get two shot by people who have over 150 levels above me. I need to mention the fact that I COMPLETED THE CAMPAIGN SO FAR, so I can only improve at a very slow rate. At the point I’m in I need to spend money to actually win any more games against those kinds of people. Speaking of people, are those “players” even real? Please fix these problems. I know I seem like a salty critic, but I just want the game to improve.
Good except for the duel system
by NH413 on 2018/12/23 17:51
I loved playing Shadow Fight 2 before this game released, and I was so excited to hear that it would have a multiplayer/PvP aspect incorporated into the base game instead of being added on later. When the game came out it felt a little sluggish but I got used to that (some of the controls do still feel unresponsive sometimes though). The game feels good overall with it’s PvE, story, and side quests, and I’m extremely glad they added survival. This brings me to the duels. They were fun at first, but the more you play, the more you realize that (even with really high level gear) it’s just a luck of the draw on whether you get someone who does enough damage that tickling you with a feather would be more effective or someone who will hit you with one kick while you’re blocking and take away a quarter of your health. I’ve been stuck at the same place in the Warrior Dan because my matches keep alternating between these two scenarios to the point where it doesn’t feel like I’ll make any more progress. It also just isn’t fun anymore to lose just because you apparently have “worse gear” than the other person (even though my ability and gear rating are both higher on the initial fight screen).
Great game, needs improvement
by Phinu55665466 on 2018/07/19 15:21
I loved shadow fight 2, and when shadow fight 3 came out I was so happy, but it wasn't as great as Ive hoped. First of all the thing that needs serious improvement is the pvp fights. I hate how if I get set up with an opponent that is op compared to me, which guarantees that I will lose (trophies), I would recommend that they would have a system where you could choose your opponent or have a button where you could move onto the next opponent before starting a fight, like clash of clans, so you can battle someone that you have a chance against. Another thing of pvp is that they need to improve defense measures against cheaters, Ive have gone against many opponents that have a less power rating than me, but kill me in two hits. I would also recommend adding a report button to report cheaters. Last problem I have with PvP is that yesterday I was playing and in the middle of the battle my screen turned grey and I couldn't do anything, causing me to restart the app and causing me to surrender, since I left the battle, and losing trophies. There are also some bugs they could fix, for instance if Im throwing a ranged weapon with a certain main weapon equiped(such as chained weapons), the throwing weapon doesn't leave my hand but instead appears like Im using the force to push it.
AWESOME
by Applesauce berries on 2018/02/26 01:21
i love this game. its simple enough that it's not overwhelming, yet theres enough playstyle variety to keep it entertaining. it would be nice if it was a little easier to obtain the common currency, but over all its amazing. i really appreciate the zero energy cost play and really appreciate not having to "pay" to upgrade items. just about every element in this game is perfect. i love i can keep trying as many times as i want to without worrying about having to wait for a stamina bar to fill up. i dont know what else to say! maybe increase the amount of loot received? or perhaps reduce the time it takes to unlock chests... all in all, its my favorite game BEST. GAME. EVER. i am SO excited for chapter 4!!! i will say it does seem "slow" in a few places, for example, the loot chests when unlocked (after the time to unlock is over), its a slow process, and showing leveled up items is slow. these are minor, but at the same time it has a sort of lethargic feel. the chapter 3 update was perfect. brilliant. awesome awesome awesome. this game is slowly and surely becoming an absolutely perfectly executed game that provides every delight needed to feel satisfied.
Fun, just some fixes
by CaiLu2 on 2019/06/26 13:56
During events, rarity matters most. During the menace swamp event, I used a unique set, yet failed. However, during the blossom event, it was really easy with a different unique set. (I used the blossom set, which is weaker for the first, and the monkey king, which was stronger, second) does power matter? Also please add survival for all days, it gets boring to do duels over and over when I get stuck. Another way to keep me entertained is a friending system. Could we have sparring matches with our own friends? New thing, ducking under projectiles are broken for me. The joystick part is already down, but my character doesn’t duck, and I get hit by the projectile, maybe even die. Legion, too OP, Heralds, not précise really, I equipped all perks that were involved in critical hits, Dynasty, combo part, could it be even more damage? The moves look cool too, but when u perform it and it does little damage, it just disappoints me, so I pick Heralds. Basically, make legion less powerful, like maybe they take slightly more damage when they cannot be stopped. Dynasty needs to get more powerful, they don’t get much attention because they aren’t good, u guys made legion OP, do it to Dynasty. Heralds, umm, critical hits are weak for me. Whenever I perform one, it is the same as a normal hit. Can u guys explain that?
Difficulty Spikes
by BaboonOfDoom on 2019/06/26 17:12
Good. But not great. The main quest fights get ridiculous with difficulty spikes. And it really grinds my gears that you can’t do an unlimited Survival Mode like the previous game. Instead you have to wait 9 hours after every time you play Survival Mode? WHAT?? WHY?? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THAT?? I’ve loved this fighting game series. It’s been the best out there. They really outdid themselves with the visuals and mechanics on Shadow Fight 3. I was impressed! It CAN be A LOT of fun. The story isn’t anything special so far, but there comes a time when you’ve upgraded your weapons and gear to most you can afford without spending REAL money, and you’ll get whooped in less then ten seconds sometimes during the main quest line, and I’m not bad at this game. Your armor that costs hundreds if not thousands of “shadow energy” becomes as easy as cutting paper all of a sudden, and the main quest guys do soooo much damage all of a sudden, like all that time and energy spent in upgrading your gear just becomes this repetitive cycle that isn’t fun. I get it, they wanna make money, they need to make money, but this is pretty ridiculous at times. It’s frustrating. At least have unlimited Survival Mode so we can have fun if we don’t want to spend so much time and effort getting obliterated by the difficulty spikes.
Rigged
by Livin'OnAPrayer on 2019/01/27 06:23
This game is fun, if you ignore the fact that the enemies can chain attacks that leave you in a permanent stun. There’s nothing you can do when an enemy is getting a combo on you. But when you try to combo an enemy, (since they’re bots) their reaction times are instant, meaning they will come off the ground instantly and body slam you and hit you one or two times. Also, if the game wants you to win, you’ll know. You’ll all of the sudden get hit with a 13 combo and you can’t get out of it because each hit stuns you for a split second, where the superhuman bot will just keep laying hits on. That or you’ll get “shocked” and drop your weapons and have to fight sword vs fists. This makes for a game that would be really fun to play if the owners weren’t greedy pricks who hold you back from progression whenever they want and who made the bots so overpowered that they react instantly. I mean seriously! You’ll use an attack and the bot will instantly dodge/kick in the perfect spot because the program knows exactly what will happen. I can’t tell you how many times I go to use a shadow ability and the bot somehow knows so he lands a combo perfectly during the split second ability animation. So i’m giving this a 2/5. Great game honestly, but you can’t beat the bots, that is unless the game wants you too, then it will be too easy and you’ll two hit them.
Progression
by blazein1020 on 2018/07/29 02:44
I like this game because it’s hard core its graphics are good and it’s super fun. The part I hate about the game the most is progression and chest I don’t like the progression of the story because after you do all the quest you have nothing to do and also they give you lackluster gear and it’s not enough to close the difficulty gap .I know I said I like the game because it’s hard core but I kinda don’t like the fact the story mode opponents rating go up immensely after 2 fights . Then we have to play pvp to get better gear which is the other topic I want to talk about. The chest in PvP are not hard to require you to win obviously but that’s not the problem, the problem about the chest is that it’s just like the quest unless your luck and get rare or legendary chest you will get common chest that you have to wait like 6 hrs to open and get armor that won’t help with anything besides helping you die quicker but, this game feel very satisfying when you beat the boss you have been stuck on but still I kinda don’t like how the developers of this game push legion as the faction easiest to get in my opinion it’s the worst but that’s why it’s easier but still wish when they hand out event stuff they let you choose the faction you get the gear from instead of it defaulting to legion
Updates and Improvements
by ImaniCheyenne on 2017/12/23 17:49
I love this game as a continuation of SF2. Been waiting for about 8 years and not that it’s here I have a few things to say. First, I’m glad they took the energy out. I use to hate having to wait and fight. The second thing is why can’t we by the cards we want? I rather choose my favorite weapon to fight with and armor to progress without changing anything. My favorite color is red. Third things is what’s up with the pvp here? Why can’t it be real time pvp? That would’ve made this game awesome and another thing y’all need is clans/guilds within factions. At least 3 or 4 factions you can choose from and every week or so whose ever at the top get special bonuses. The last thing is the chest. Why do we have to wait hours to open a box when we play 10 games within one hour? Please cut the times down. Other than that, this game is amazing and worth every star. It’s like mobile mortal combat because the regular mortal combat do not have nothing on this game. Thank you nekki for not disappointing. I hope y’all see this and make it more enjoyable and interactive among the players. XxFreeWillxX
Fun, but infuriating.
by JourneyWithJC on 2019/03/26 22:40
This is gonna be quite short. I have found this game to be quite entertaining, a pretty big upgrade from the previous game, with all its new mechanics and such. This game is a big and I mean, BIG money grabber. At some points in the game, you will reach levels that require you to purchase new items with coins that you haven't earned enough of, forcing you to in order to continue the game, purchase some with real money. Crashing is also a big issue. This game has crashed EVERY OTHER TIME I start up a match. Let's say I play with game for 15 minutes a day. The game will have crashed up to 8 or even more times, based on how long the rounds are. This also is one of the big infuriating factors. During a match, the AI can also be extremely annoying, because they can spam the same attack the entire match without anything you can do about it. For example, I'm trying to fight of this one enemy in the corner of a map, and he's spamming the "slam" attack or whatever you call it, and I can't move or do anything, but this is just very minor. I'm asking myself when this happens, "wait this is a wrestling game?" And it just infuriates me. Do what you can with this review, I don't know what you are going to do to improve the game.
Game is great but..
by MatthewXIII on 2018/08/06 07:30
Ok so I’ve written a review ages ago and months later I got so fed up with this part of the game I uninstalled the game. The thing I was so fed up with was the fact you couldn’t skip any side quests, for crying out loud it’s a side quest it’s not important so it should be skippable especially when there are mini blocks for the level like only using kicks for example. It makes it absolutely frustrating and nearly unplayable when you are just wanting to level up and enjoy a game that without that problem is amazing. Ok so I reinstalled the game recently and they’ve changed a few things however they didn’t change and make the side quests skippable however they instead made it only one side quest available at a time when originally it was two. HAVING TWO side quests made the issue at least somewhat bearable allowing you to have a different quest til you sadly end up with both of them being annoying. Pay to win people would probably find these little locks annoying as well. For crying out loud please make these annoying side quests skippable because I don’t wanna leave the game again, I really love everything else about the game and loved the second installment and I would love so much if this was fixed.
Is it just me, or...?
by TheGamerFox on 2018/07/17 00:16
Firstly, this is a step up from the last one. No energy requirements, no penalties for needing to try again, and the ability to mix and match move sets. However, I have major gripes. The A.I. feels so much more aggressive than the last game. Whenever I get into a fight, I have to start stunlocking the enemy, and keep completely and perfect dominance in the fight, or else everything hits the fan. As soon as your opponent gets a second to breath, they will either do one of two things. A) stunlock you and somehow be faster than you in almost everything you try, or B) Throw you to the ground, repeatedly. This second one is so annoying, especially since it feels harder to pull off in this game as opposed to the last, and the a.i can do it because they don’t have button combos to press, they just do whatever they want with ease. The card system is ok, and at least you aren’t railroaded into using a specific weapons at certain points like the last game, but the a.i’s difficultly and the random and convenient criticals the enemy lands are too much to handle at certain points. Granted, I usually fight in battles sooner with harder difficulty, but that has no effect on aggression of the a.i, only gear rating. Developers, help?
Don’t download this, shadow of its former self
by Dominic 828473 on 2019/02/08 15:19
Most of these reviews never talk about anything past the first chapter because they quit before that, but I’ve played the game since the first month it came out and I recently quit the game myself. When it came out the game was decent at the time, the only problem was that certain weapons dominated and the AI was relentless but the game was still fun until you beat everything and there wasn’t anything to do. Then chapter 4 came out making it the game new again. The AI was fun and challenging at times and didn’t spam anything. Weapons worked and the game was perfect. Then chapter 5 and 6 comes out... The came became unbearable past the campaign. Events are recycled, AI constantly blocks, certain weapons were nerfed to useless, there’s no variety in style because if you want the highest level stuff you wear the event gear the leaderboards need to be smaller because they’re pretty rigged with the same players always being on top. The game is pay to win if you want a unique style and have a good power level and the worst part of all of this is the Devs don’t care or listen to the community and only care about what makes them a quick buck. Don’t pay any money into this game if you do get it and don’t expect any thing you don’t like about the game to be fixed because it won’t, the community has tried.
It's somewhat lackluster
by Sir Lemmington on 2017/12/01 01:39
Overall I think the game is fun, but compared to shadow fight 2 the only thing that was really improved is the fighting system. The way you get new stuff in this game is a slight improvement to the last, but in the end i prefer the lasts games way of introducing you to certain weapons. Getting new stuff in this is fun and easy at first but once you reach the end of the first chapter, it takes a long time to get anything at all. The end boss in chapter 1 is very difficult to beat and takes some trial and error (Especially for me because equipment is so low level that i do no damage but take tons). The boss is very easy and simple at first but once you win one round and he stays in shadow mode he becomes extremely difficult, especially with how his hammer throw is so quick but hard to dodge and how you can feel cheated out of a round because of the way the cool off for attacks can get you killed for his uninterruptible move. I see things like this as things that will be big problems especially for bosses later in the game. I really liked the old game and this one seems like a tone of fun, but some mechanics just need a bit of work, like bosses should give cues when performing certain attacks.
Infuriatingly offensive disgrace to gaming
by awioefubw on 2018/07/24 22:20
This is a horrible game. Not because it isn’t fun. It is beautiful and one of the most potentially enjoyable fighting games I’ve seen for iOS. “Potentially” being the key word. This game represents the ugliest aspect of gaming. The only way to continue to enjoy the game is to keep paying more and more money. If you don’t keep buying more you can’t advance. Not only that, you can’t even play previous missions. The only option is to spend money or advance so slowly that it’s no longer fun. I know this is a common practice. I’ve seen plenty of it and it makes me mad every time. But not being able to play previous fights in campaign mode is ridiculous and an obvious ploy to keep you spending. This approach is unethical and shows the true values of the developer which is clearly making money at the cost of the experience over customer service and making a fun game. I’ve even taken the bait and buying 10$ upgrade only got me a few more fights in campaign mode before I, again, had no chance of winning. The game frequently says, “looks like you’re having trouble winning, want to head to the store”. I’d use expletives but I want people to see this so no one spends money on the pathetic individuals who helped make this money making machine disguised as a game. So I’ll just say have a wonderful day.
Latency Latency Latency Gate
by bluebeemeer on 2018/05/28 21:28
Some welcome changes, there on the right track but the track is still broken, the bot control avatars hit when it wants to hit, kick when it wants to kick and combo with the quickness, but my avatar has way too much Latency, when both are standing still and in that 2,3 milliseconds I'm tapping and tapping a punch or a kick, and absolutely nothing is happening, then you guess it the bot avatar unleash on me when clearly I had the win with one punch or kick, my controls just would not respond, in boxing you are instructed to protect yourself at all times, but how can you when you guys throttled us back, sounds familiar? kind of how apple was throttling back on the iPhone's performance! You guys are throttling us on our performance, please just stop it, again! Ain't nobody trying spend a grip of money to send your kids through college to play a pretty decent game, let it be our skills only that defines the win or defeat, not a built in latency gate which slant the victory in your favor, again it's a pretty decent game and you get hooked, so as James Brown said it, "please please please" fix the track and remove the latency so I can gladly give you that 5th ⭐️
People refuse to grind and work hard and expect it to come easy
by Chriskendrick68 on 2018/06/03 20:58
Just read the title, that’s all of the problems with the new people. You do a fight on any difficulty above normal and expect it to be easy. It’s ABOVE NORMAL. It’s not going to be easy, the developers made it that way on purpose. And to all you people saying that you have to pay in to this game to win you’re just impatient and stupid! I haven’t put a cent into this game and I’ve beaten all the chapter storylines and I’m above 3000 trophies. The AI is much harder than last update, I’ll admit that. But once you find the pattern just like any other update it’s easy to win. Just be patient and grind out the game and don’t get mad when you get one shot by someone when the difficulty on impossible difficulty. Just grind the game out and be patient. You don’t have to spend money. I’m at 3000+ trophies at the moment, 6000 gear score, and have beaten The Whole storyline with putting ONE penny into this game. Reading these reviews makes me want to die because you people are so stupid and lazy and refuse to grind the game for more than 2 hours before expecting it to come easy to you, so then you go complain.
Needs a lot of work!!
by Jesus0809 on 2018/05/31 16:54
I’ve been playing this game for a few months now and ever since the recent update, although they added unlimited side quests. They mess up the way the rules work, for instance I’ve been stuck on this one mission for a week now, the rule is head hits only, but the AI doesn’t have that rule applied to it, which is not how it worked before. While I’m sitting here trying to do combos that will grant me a head hit all the AI has to do is throw me to the ground of sweep my legs and he gets critical hits every time, or I get shocked and I loose my weapons and now I have to fight with my hands while he still has a ranged weapon like a staff or spear. I really enjoyed this game before the update, even though I would rage on occasion, but at least then I knew it was my fault because I wasn’t playing smart, but now I try to play smart but I can’t win because the AI doesn’t have to follow the rules. Also the hit boxes in this game are so finicky it’s ridiculous, if you go for a jab to the torso, somehow the opponent doesn’t take damage, then they return with a critical hit which knocks out like 40% of your health. This game has potential to be a really good game if they fix all of the bugs, but until then, this game is getting a one star from me. It’s just almost impossible to win sometimes because of all of the bugs.
This Game Is Broken
by Spam Mason on 2018/05/26 20:36
First off, I don’t hate this game. It’s graphics and gameplay are really good, and the variety of fighting styles, strategies, and weapons are also great. The problem lies in the developers decision to monetize this game as much as they can. Loot boxes (Card Packs and Chests), are very prevalent in this game, and only once in a blue moon you can get an upgrade you really need, only once every 20 chests or packs you get something helpful. Duels, their so called PvP mode, is hilariously broken. It doesn’t let you play with real players, it’s just an AI that takes the form of a real player, with identical fighting styles. With the newest update, the fighting style the AI uses does not allow for weapon usage or even simple attacks like kicks, the AI flips you if you attack in close range, while the AI themselves don’t even attack, yet still win almost every time. The matchmaking system has been improved, but still isn’t great, and takes serious grinding, usually at least two weeks to allow you to move into the next rank. I’ve been playing this since November, and yet, I still don’t know why I still play. Duels, it’s loot system, and it’s slow story mode ruin what’s otherwise a really good fighting game. I really hope the developer can fix this extremely broken game.

Cool game but one problem.
by Future Relics on 2019/01/23 20:34
This is a great game and I highly recommend it. But the AI in the game (which is every opponent) have the power to counter every attack you throw. This completely ruins all skill in players because any attack they throw can be countered in less than a millisecond. Your only hope in a hard battle is to counter the Bot’s move which is pretty difficult. Because if you don’t throw much attacks then the bot can either wear down your health bar with attacks while your blocking or they can grab you. (which is unblockable) I once played a match and got grabbed 14 times. The trophy system is not very original unlike all the dynamics of the game. The trophy system is faulty because there could be an account with the same amount of trophies but a WAY higher gear value. This is a guaranteed loss which is unfair. And ranged weapons are key because the AI cannot counter you if you have a high range weapon. (For example: spear, and chain knife.) the boys should not have this power to counter everything you throw (especially with a short range weapon) because there is no point in playing a game where you have no power to do much.
Game is a cheat
by Mr. Duece on 2019/05/11 02:21
Idk how, but the game managed to be even more cheat than shadow fight 2. I was fighting Itu and he was so rigged bro. This mans recovery time was head over heels above mine despite having no buffs, there would be instances where my hook swords or hands hit his body before he hit mine and his attacks got priority, when I went to jump kick or wheel kick, the button would literally be 100% unresponsive(you know the times where a jump kick or a wheel kick would absolutely devastate Itu). I kid you not, when I was hitting home or got hit by him the game mad either him or me wait until he was ready, then he would transition into a grab move. I would be standing still(which is this games stupid substitute for a block button) and his hits would still give me critical hits. All of this and he was only insane difficulty. Not even the highest difficulty. Which makes me think, when June said that he was too powerful for me, was that just underestimation despite him being insane difficulty, or was it the game literally telling me, spend more credits, time, and/or money on the game, then we will stop this character from cheating? This kinda stuff happened in Shadow Fight 2 but now all the characters are 3D, as opposed to black stick figures and I can even more clearly see the BS. There is no skill gap, there’s only a grind gap.
don’t bother. good concept failed execution
by Thatshooterdood on 2019/02/12 10:23
level scaling is terrible. takes way to long to progress story as it requires you to have certain stats to do enough damage to make it worth even attempting STORY MISSIONS let alone events that if you complete give you ridiculous gear that can jump your stats if only it were even possible to progress that far unless you’ve already spent countless hours to play the game. it doesn’t work well for new players. pvp is an utter joke. just don’t bother. it’s not fun to gamer rage at a mobile game when it shouldn’t be impossible to beat an ai that shouldn’t be able to learn your attack patterns before you even fight it. the concept is cool but they failed at executing it. half the ai know how you fight with your current load out before you even start. more so the event fights. you get through first two then third is literally impossible because it knows exactly what you’re going to do before you do it because it knows that’s the only move that combos after the other. on top of that it doesn’t get any sort of combo fatigue like the play gets constantly. i can’t combo anything higher than a 7 then go to the even and the computer hits me for a 15 combo and knocks me out before i can lay a finger on it. there’s a good concept but a failed execution here
It is good but progression is really conflicting
by Battle brawler on 2019/06/06 13:08
This game is really great. It has a good and satisfying combat with a variety of factions and weapons with its own combos and move sets. However I feel the progression is contradicting to this “rpg-looter” style of game. In order to level up and gain xp it can only be done through story mode. Which sounds fine until you beat 3 story missions and the difficulty cranks up 200 gear score and it says u need better gear to beat the next mission. But if u beat a boss that is significantly higher than u it will drop gear that can only be equipped at a certain level and you cannot get to that level unless you play the story but the story is way to hard for your level. So your just stuck in this infinite cycle. And yes I know there is duels and side missions but they don’t give xp and they are on timers; side missions have a 5 hour Cooldown and and duel chests are on an even longer Cooldown and u can only get them 1 at a time. In addition the duel chests will most likely drop upgrades for the gear that you cannot equip because of your level. Your just stuck in an infinite loop hole unless you play everyday and get lucky with your loot drops.

Used to be a solid game, it was heavily monetized, but playing f2p was possible. After the updates of last year, it is now incredibly hard to get new items and materials to level up your gear. The AI is broken enough that it will block 80% of your attacks and be able to counter you on pretty much anything when you get to middle level. The AI is so broken it can predict your move set based on your button press within a thousandth of a second and make a move accordingly. You WILL get stuck on levels for weeks at a time because without loot, you can’t upgrade, and without upgrades, you can’t play. Soon you’ll fall into a progression of logging in, seeing that you don’t get any good loot, maybe try (and get destroyed) in an insane level, then log off. OR, you can spend hundreds of dollars to get more loot boxes and progress. But of course, this is where the second part of the AI comes in. No matter how many good items you have, the game will ALWAYS pair you with someone with better equipment because guess what, the “multiplayer” aspect is actually just the same AI system. Nekki really screwed the pooch with this installment, and now it’s doomed to die because of its inaccessibility. Go play the second game, at least that one has some modicum of fairness.
Not bad, but please read!

The gameplay is fun and presentation is cool, but there are a few areas that can be improved. The most glaring problem is with the card system. After completing missions, fighting duels, or opening chests, you get several reward cards that unlock new item/abilities and upgrade existing ones with duplicates. Among them is usually a bonus mystery card that you can get from watching ads. The problem is this doesn’t work half the time (not exaggerating) with some sort of server timeout and the game just goes “oh well...” Guys, I’m wasting my time watching ads that give you revenue anyway, can’t you find away to fix this or to tag a user when it fails so they can be compensated later? The other problems is that it feels like the pcs are often slower to attack than the npc’s, as if there is a delay or the attack animations are longer. The third is that matchmaking is iffy. I’ve been paired against players who have obviously sunk real money into this so their damage and defense are miles ahead of mine despite having similar progress. I’m not saying separate the payers, but maybe offset the matching so they fight veterans with higher levels.
So many things are really good, but...
by Fidgets digits on 2018/01/21 18:32
I think that the chests are fine. The A.I. could use some work, and I know you are working on that. But can’t you make a store. Like in the last one. Keep the chests for the enchantments and abilities, or variations on what you have. It’s like you guys looked at EA's screw up and said,”Let’s try that. Maybe it will work for our game!” Even though it makes the game pay to win still, and is just as bad as what EA is doing. Also make the times on the chests lower, and don’t limit the side quests. That is so annoying for a game where you can barely do anything already. Also make experience available from everything but the duels. Fire whoever said experience points should only be given after mission fights. Because I have so much stuff that is one level above me that would help me on the main mission and you just dangle it in front of my face, and it’s not like I can use the card packs because the stupid random draw never upgrades any gear that I use to be better than what I already had. It’s really a good game, and I do still recommend it, but please fix some of the glaring issues and make it less freemium.
Great concept
by WhenGoatsRule on 2018/09/25 02:48
When I first installed this game, I was awe inspired that an app could have such an awesome art style and still be a fun game to play. This is by far the best fighting game on phone, but I didn’t rate it as such because of a few major flaws. First off, some moves are nearly impossible to pull off when fighting an active opponent, like the grab or arm throw. I can only pull off these moves seemingly by chance which is a shame because they are some of my favorite. Secondly, combat seems to be too difficult seeing as how every time I would attack the enemy would pull off a move that countered mine, knocked me to the ground and then proceeded to end the insane combo with a kick. My progress in the story has been halted by this seemingly until I grind long enough to acquire more powerful gear. Which brings me to my final point, progression. Progressing in this game is ridiculously slow, to a point where I cannot continue the story for days until I grind long enough to level up in order to gain access to a sword I had been holding onto for days prior. Please try to iron out at least the progression and move randomness and I should be able to beat your AI.
Great but don’t like new Update
by RedStoner500 on 2018/08/28 01:24
Let’s be honest, right when you start the game you start plain right so when you get a new weapon or ability or armor you need to upgrade it to a level to play a mission I know there’s a few players who want to play on impossible mode to get the weapon that you need to level up I mean seriously you have to make us wait until we get a certain amount of points to upgrade the weapons and armor we need 2nd is the boss you made them hard that only armor matters but not the weapons for example the posesed empor shadow ability is a spamming power right when you start he uses a shadow ability when your far away you can’t can’t touch him cause he has more far range shadow abilities you can hit him a few times but still he spams shadow power. 3rd legendary’s everyone wants legendary we can barley get any since we have to buy them or be very lucky in my opinion I think it’s just dume we need to spend money on gems that’s worth a lot of money and we can only buy one card maybe at least make a few chest that give you cards or weapons or maybe a match that you can earn shadow points
Cash Grab
by White.Privilege on 2018/01/04 02:42
I’m going to say it like it is: this game is a cash grab. The progression system is ridiculously broken, and it is impossible to make any progress past the first chapter. Skill does not matter, you are put up against enemies that will kill you with a single combo, while you do minuscule damage against them. In order to progress, you need to complete side missions, which appear only a few times a day, and you have to wait hours between them. In addition to side missions, you can do duels. Ranking up in duels is also impossible because it randomly puts you against opponents with far higher gear score, and you will not win. You take one step forward, three steps back. The only way to truly progress in this game is to spend large amounts of money on cards and crates. These cards and crates typically give you garbage gear that is far worse than what you already have, and there is no way to trade or sell gear. I am currently nearing the end of chapter 3, without spending a dime, and I’ve hit a wall. There is no progressing without wasting money on virtual currency, which I refuse to do. Tl;Dr: If you like wasting money, go ahead and get this game. If you like grinding and trying countless attempts hoping to kill an enemy, get this game. Otherwise, do not.

ONLINE DUEL IS FAKE
by Knelson23 on 2019/07/15 17:03
Nobody is really playing against real people. I can click duel, start and pause it for 30mins , come back later and keep fighting.😂😂 Y’all bs and I don’t fw the scam🖕🏽
for you
by maxthe god on 2019/07/15 15:15
your game so amazing
Good but getting scammed on booster packs
by levito112 on 2019/07/15 14:46
Super fun game! Really love it! I have 6200 power and still am not bored. But just today I got scammed 2000 gems because the legion legendary pack said it was free and then when I got it it charged me almost all my gems! I only have 375 gems! Please fix this! And if you can give me my gems back. Those boosters are nowhere near worth that amount if you want to buy them. I would be fine for like 1000 back. I got good stuff but I had no intention of ever buying one of those packs. Thanks! Great game but fix that glitch!
Absolutely horrible game
by NuggetOfGold on 2019/07/15 13:33
The game is an absolute cash grab, It will make you rage with all of the bots and want to delete it. You may think you escape from the bots with Duels. The simple truth is you don’t. You are not fighting real players with creative names. You are fighting generated bots that will pause the moment you hit the pause button. The bosses are near impossible to beat without spending money to beat them, with the “Sarge” its just idiotic, you have to rage your heart out just to beat his 1st form, you beat him then supprise. He has unlimited shadow energy and beats you to a pulp with the generated combo. The only option you have, is to run from him, why? Because he has a form where he becomes unstunnable. He beats you up and tosses you around as if you where a rag doll. Now if you read to this point you should know the simple truth of the game, But in general it is a decent game with good graphics and no ads, and hopefully that will never change..
P2w
by ccxxigdfiuf on 2019/07/15 01:23
This game is honestly pay to win.In events the opponents are way too hard to defeat,I got knocked down and could not get up until I had 1/5 of my health left.Also this game constantly spams you with ads and things to buy.Honestly this would be a great game if it wasn’t so pay to win
It keeps Not giving me the Daily Pack
by Mr.Supermann on 2019/07/14 22:35
Everytime I press look inside the Daily Pack And then go back to collect the pack the pack Disappears and makes me Use 100 gems 🙄😓
It’s ok still needs work
by cheewre on 2019/07/14 15:24
I think this game is really fun but it has its moments like when your fighting some opponents very important opponents you can be winning at the beginning than all of a sudden their strength is x10 like they do damage that they were never doing before than beat you 3 rounds in a row and also in some fights you can be fighting and than you’ll just be standing there doing nothing like the buttons don’t work I don’t know if anyone else is having these issues but to me it’s frustrating and feels like a waste of time sometimes.
Also,
by 904Savage on 2019/07/13 19:24
Be prepared to enter duels where they match make you against people leagues above you in gear to the point you can’t even scratch there health bar. 👎🏼
Good game but
by Rabbit24213 on 2019/07/13 15:42
The game is good but you need to fix the game cause I believe if I'm over somebody head they cant hit me
Pay to Win
by FR3NCHYツ on 2019/07/13 13:54
The game is good to extent, it is good for wasting time and battery. Also it’s good if you want to waste your money. In other terms it’s pay to win basically as you progress deeper into the game.
Why do we have to be a character we don’t want to in the side quest
by Theglitchesofthisgame on 2019/07/13 09:15
It’s making this game more frustrating than it should be and when you’re tying to attack that vampire, it does more combos to you. Literally tried to dodge but got him more after I tried to dodge it
Best game ever
by cooljuicebox13 on 2019/07/13 07:51
This game is so cool who ever made this bro make more plz everyone get this game👌this game so cool so much action.
Good but every story character is a spammer
by hh gvgg on 2019/07/12 22:31
I love the game but around when you get to the Greta mission every character starts spamming. Bolo took me almost 3 weeks to beat because he crits you and shoves you in the floor and he knocks you out every time. Even a first strike was him jamming me into the floorboards and still knocked me out right away. It isn’t even a shadow ability either!!! He jams you in a floorboard every time and one shots you. If you fix spamming gets five stars. (Maybe an energy bar would work and take out bolos ability
I’d say, Nekki company should interact with single players more often

Really in pvp look at the difference 11325 vs 19567
by sengdeng on 2019/07/12 17:49
Why do you do this fix your pvp because your game is broken and you nerf so many stuff and make it harder and is this the same like if I have my status like 11325 and I vs some one like 16567 to 19564 why do you make it so hard just to do this when we vs some so hard and FIX YOUR PVP🤬
Good but...
by dhdhdhsjdjwjs on 2019/07/12 17:24
This game is really challenging but it’s unfair how the game works...
This game is just a cheat and bs
by wyfbro on 2019/07/12 04:43
They match you up with other players that have a power lvl that like 200 above yours, the card packs are completely unfair and they barely give any good stuff, and basically everyone is stronger than you in this game unless you spend actual money, although the graphics and fighting is great. Also other enemies can abuse you while your on the ground or trying to get back up so have fun with that cuz they do it very often.
Abhorrent Matchmaking
by Nancy mon on 2019/07/11 22:57
Online Duels consistently match me with opponents well beyond my gear level, allowing 2-3 hits to kill me whereas I can spend an entire match whittling down opponents health bit by bit. Ruins the game for me as online play is the only option when campaign missions are marked as “impossible”.
I JUST WASTED MY MONEY
by Cherelyn00 on 2019/07/11 21:47
I just spent $12 on this game and I got new powerful armor and weapons and I beat a boss with them but when I went to one of the new modes snd tried to defeat the boss on there I was doing the SAME damage I was doing on the boss before I paid $12 and it is highly disappointing that I paid $12 on this game when I could have went to a WHOLE OTHER GAME.
The duels
by assassinfanforlife on 2019/07/11 17:14
The duels in this game are one of the worst, mostly because in this game you can just pay to win basically so your basically going to be 10 times weaker than your opponent because they bought stuff, so basically change it so that we don’t fight people with the same amount of trophies as us but by there power level
I love ❤️ dis game
by thecoolcid on 2019/07/11 14:50
So a long time ago I played shadow fight 2 but now with shadow fight 3😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😱😱😱😱😱😱😱 I LOVE IT. ✋HAVE FIVE
Trash
by lilpugbg54 on 2019/07/11 14:12
Your game is really hard you put level 3 on hard and you hardly have any shadow energy i will like the shadow fight 2 than this 😡😡😡
Best game ever
by fjkyflyl on 2019/07/10 23:38
This is literally the best game ever! Shadow fight two had clunky controls and they’re super slow. But shadow fight three has fast controls a better story line and better rewards!!! And therefore is the best game ever!!!
Just saying

Needs blood
Best mobile game I have played in my life
by ASP gaming on 2019/07/10 18:28
There is nothing bad about this game best game of 2019
Difficulty
by Davidlholt on 2019/07/10 15:44
I rate it two stars mainly because match making is very frustrating .I'm sick and tired of getting someone who is way powerful than me and my attacks don’t do anything or I come across someone who defeats me in three hits or I hate when I get someone who is way lower than me and don’t stand a chance. I hate the inventory and it’s not organized at all. And the story mode is frustrating because the ai are too strong and it takes forever to get decent stuff or the decent stuff you just got doesn’t help
Paywall smacked across the face
by This game is axx on 2019/07/10 12:52
Literally the game just shouts out pay to win. I understand free games need money but like holy heck, you can barely get through THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME without the constant ads of pay this and that. Little did you know that you have to pay to play, can’t progress without having to wait a whole day while getting like 5 fights in and no being able to go farther. Great concept horrible execution.
NERF SARGE
by iCryptix on 2019/07/10 00:36
I cant give much of a review because I have been stuck fighting Sarge forever. The game is great other wise, but getting better gear from duels and side missions is an other thing you guys could change. I know I’m not the only one asking for this, but Sarge is just to over powered and needs a nerf.
This game is crap
by ZeroStarsBoiiii on 2019/07/09 22:01
This game is crap the thing that I hate the most about this dumb game is the events.The events are impossible to freakin beat so until they make the events easier then this dumb game has lost me 💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Buggy
by uwotBajur on 2019/07/09 21:38
Its pretty fun, has a lot to learn, as a time wasting f2p. I think the timers are quite wonky though cause the free stack always seems to say two hours later....for nine hours straight.
Best game ever
by cool emote game on 2019/07/09 20:03
Very good
Good but a little too hard
by ⓈⒹⒹⓄ on 2019/07/09 03:26
I really really love the game, but the last stage in chapter one and the second fangirl challenge are a little to hard in my opinion, the buttons for attacks in battle don’t always respond when I tap them, and I think the battles should be put fairly I hustled started and being put against really good players, but otherwise then that this is an amazing game and the graphics are great.
👎🏻
by Leezey1996 on 2019/07/08 22:51
Can’t get past the first main mission...
Just my humble opinion
by goose from tiny valley on 2019/07/08 20:52
Great game just wish there was a lil less downloading
Too hard
by Devilsthrill on 2019/07/08 14:13
Was enjoying the game until I started losing every single fight I attempted. The game encourages me to spend money so that my character can grow stronger. Pretty much unless you spend money on this game, you're going to get to a point where you lose every battle and that's boring.
Ends up pay to continue
by arodd6 on 2019/07/08 09:19
About 2-3 hours in (depending on time) you get stuck against either an impossible fight against a dude who regenerates or someone else way above your equipment level, which means you have to bust out the credit card if you want to get past the roadblock. Had such high hopes from Shadow fight 2.
The lag is actually breaking my iPad
by shadow fight 2 review on 2019/07/08 00:12
Okay so I’ve been playing this game. Fun yes, but oh my god is it laggy. It’s been so laggy before that it actually caused my iPad to not open any apps. Now at first I just thought it was the iPad, but after a few times of having to restart my iPad over and over, I found out it was the game. So if you could put something in the settings to lower the quality of the game to make it less laggy or anything I will make this review a 5 star, but at this moment I’m favoring shadow fight 2, which is a shame considering the potential of this game
Really aggravating
by Ultrathorjeff on 2019/07/07 17:56
I try to restart my story mode and character but when I think I am able to restart story mode it tells me that it found my data, so please give players a choice if we want to restart
This game is hot trash
by RReptiXX on 2019/07/07 14:23
The graphics are meh, and the bots need to be way less overpowered. Warning, according to this game, “Hard” mode is now “Impossible” mode. Plus Shadow Fight 2 is wayyyyyyy better. (Sry I sound like a hater, but this was just my opinion of the game.)
I lost my progress!
by ryaserdn on 2019/07/06 19:02
So I’ve been play the game for three years now and I deleted it but when I redownloaded the game my progress was reset! Please fix this and I will rate it five stars :)
Glitched.
by Logan_0809 on 2019/07/06 12:52
Okay, so. I was really close to completing the game. Until, it closed me out of the game. I decided to get back to the game, but it was just a pitch-white screen. Please fix this, and I might rate a 5 star if it gets fixed.
Great game but majorly frustrating
by gavinator54321 on 2019/07/06 07:49
Love this game. I’ve played the previous two shadow fight games and this game has made a huge leap in advancements. The game is very fun, however, the difficulty curve is (at times) infuriatingly difficult and has lead me to lose interest in playing the game at all sometimes. I would like to see improvements on some small bugs and a re-evaluation on the difficulty curve for sure.

Im being serious about your game experience
by Edades_Fam on 2019/07/05 23:39
What I feel about this is that every time I get into a match make I always go up against AI’s thats are like 400+ damage points above me and It’s so hard to try and get trophies. Why its so hard to get trophies you may ask, it’s because of the fact they are not real people and I do so little damage to the point where I do like a 13x combo of they opponent with head hits and critical and next thing you know I get hit 2 or 3 times and I die, lacking health and damage.
👍🏽
by Wraith Face on 2019/07/05 20:25
Takes too long to get things done... i don’t wanna wait 5 hours for 1 rare chest that has like 2 commons 🤦🏽‍♂️ gets annoying, and the upgrades are expensive i don’t really know y I gotta have more powerful common gear when I have uniques and legendaries 🤷🏽‍♂️ kind of stupid tbh but it’s a good game.
The best game
by fredgsmer😩399 on 2019/07/05 20:01
I’ve played shadow fight 2 it was the best game i Fact i still even play it it’s just the best game ever I’m playing shadow fight right now i just now heard about shadow fight three and it is already so awsome i Thing you should play it👍🏽
An amazing game that is ruined
by Vhoskelian on 2019/07/05 19:22
I am a huge fan of the original shadow fight 2, and was super excited to see this one. However, after playing several hours of it, here’s why it is a massive disappointment: 1.) The gameplay is pretty great, and of all the iOS fighting games out there, this is the best I’ve seen. That’s why it’s upsetting to see a well-designed game converted into a micro transaction machine that spits on its own potential. It’s a pathetic system. I would gladly pay 10$ to play this game. I will not pay 60$ to purchase gems that will help me progress 1/6th of the way through the game. It’s not a 60$ game. 2.) After 5-10 minutes, there is nothing to do in the game besides duel or play quests that are massively overpowered and which yield almost no usable rewards, because quests and survival mode are locked behind timers that often last 24 hours. I wouldn’t mind grinding in duels, but that is pointless because... 3.) The dueling system is not scaled properly. Scale the dueling system properly. I should not be matched with a “player” who’s equipment rating is 400 points higher than mine. Ranking up is often one step up, two steps back. If I am 1300 ER and am beaten by said 2000+ ER and rank down as a result, my next match should not be against a 2200+ ER enemy. This is lazy development and actually dissuades people from buying gems because they will still be matched unfairly no matter their equipment ratings. It disappoints me to know I will not be able to enjoy this game until another sequel comes out and they turn it into a normal all-inclusive game like they did with Shadow Fight 2. I will look forward to that, but until then I would not recommend wasting your time on this.
Great! But maybe one thing could be added
by TheInsaneHat on 2019/07/05 19:12
This game is great. It looks great, it’s fun to play, and it may be better than the last one. But I feel one thing should be changed. I think it’s unfair for duelists that have to go up against players who have such a greater power level then the other. Like I think it’s unfair that you’d put a 4074 against a 4589. If the developers could fix it to where maybe you have someone in more of your range of power that’d be great!
The vampires
by kdjdjdjejejejsjkdkdkdkddkd on 2019/07/05 17:19
I love this game But there’s just one problem that pisses me off about the game it’s the vampires even with one little hit they get there health back and it’s annoying as all hell fix that please besides that i love the game
Cool game, feature suggstions
by radical awesome dude on 2019/07/05 09:12
Love this game ever since the first pne but I have suggestions. There’s so much cool stuff in terms of armor and head wear but I have some suggestions for a better experience. Would love to see the option to hide my helmet so I can see my characters face. Also I would also love the option to overlay outfits over others or even overlay as skins, because some are my favorites but instead I’m stuck with a certain outfit because of the stats even though it could be rather ugly and not cool.

This game is good
by Asjewjqiaoanwb on 2019/07/04 18:56
This game is good and all but when it comes to duels it can be impossible because for example you are at 1559 and your opponent is 1900 it would be unbalanced and you would lose
Rigged so it’s raging
by Like a boss swagger on 2019/07/04 17:51
First of the bosses are very hard. You have to pay or buy with some real money so you can get good stuff and so the boss level will be normal and if you don’t pay you will have to wait a day for the shop to change and that would take a lot of time. To be honest the game is fun but you can only level up on the story which is bs. Taking the quests won’t help on the boss too because it would be the level of insane or impossible at that point. I can see why people rage on this game because it’s so unfair. The duels are also unfair. The trophies only matter and not the amount of power. I nearly lost 100 trophies because of that.
Good but
by Jona Wena on 2019/07/04 16:17
I gave this 4 stars because I’m on the shadow recruit thing that drains your shadow power but I can’t beat it it’s technically impossible for me
Stupid game
by Rfvqaz on 2019/07/04 13:59
Repetitive and monotone. Despite the graphics every round in this game is the same. They just play with stats making your enemy stronger and faster and your player weaker and slower. So all you need is just to purchase gems and stuff at some point of the game. Deleted

First off there is Way too much micro transactions. gems makes coins obsolete, the packs cost gems an the best items cost gems it should be coins to buy new weapon packs and shadow energy to upgrade them, gems should be used for shortening wait times. Overall gameplay is great except for the fact of waiting for side quests and survivals those modes should just be continuous why do I have to wait 7 hours just to play one quest or round of survival, that makes absolutely no sense. Events yeah but side quests especially they need to be fully continuous. If you can’t decode gems out of the game bring back fight energy use the gems for purchasing gear packs, coins for upgrades since they’re easier to earn an upgrades are always required to have the best chance, and use shadow energy as fight energy where it’s aquatinted to the players level so each regular story quest cost 50% of shadow energy side quest cost 25% survival fights cost 75% and boss fights cost 100% so with the players level, a level 1 would have 100% shadow energy total to use for main, side, or survival quests, level 2=200%, level 3=300%,etc. basically the higher your level the more you can fight. A fully depleted shadow energy bar or icon refills after 2hrs no matter the level. Cause you want to give players a break from the game but not to long of a break that they forget it till the next day/week/month.

This game is so cool prolly the best one out but clearly this game just wants to beat u down with ridiculous enemies that u can only defeat if u buy gear since u can’t level up any way except the main story, completely ruined by the progression system
Please fix the absurd difficulty of bosses
by BenTQP on 2019/07/04 02:43
Now lemme tell ya, I’ve played the game since it’s release and it’s been fun till the end. I would love to give it 5 stars but there’s one more problem that I’m sure everybody faces. BOSSES. Now I like bosses as their unique enemies but some of them have abilities that are game breaking, unfair, or straight up stupid. The bosses now are harder than what it used to be. Say for example Xiang Tzu or Iolanda are absurdly stupid as they have abilities that are straight up unfair combined with the insane damage. For a regular player, it would take them days to weeks to beat them for the difficulty. The insane damage makes it worse. Now, it feels like the game is P2W. Unless you have decent legendary equipment, the bosses are close to impossible for regulars. But nice save for adding the chests sand rewarding some legendaries after some missions, but please fix the bosses. Don’t make it too easy or at the same time too hard.

This game is just micro transactions
by kennyx__________ on 2019/07/01 02:43
There are too many micro transactions in this game. The game just gets impossible at some points forcing you to either buy or stay there forever. This game is a pay to win game and it really tries to tempt you into swiping your credit card for that extra gear. Its kind of like gameloft and MC5, buy or get owned by everyone else. Sadly there is a multiplayer in this game and you should now be able to buy loot from day 1 and be able to one-shot everything. I see the potential in the game, but as long as these micro transactions are around, it won’t improve. Notice that the best games in the market need skill, not your credit card.

by legend2345765 on 2019/06/29 15:28
Make your bots easier because I got hit for a 8 combo in survival and instantly I died because you guys are so desperate for money that you make your bots near impossible when you get knocked down so you make people buy better stuff with real money so people get 100 bucks so you can buy good enough stuff to get past level 4 in the secret fight and buy armor first because that is the most important thing in the game so you don’t die from a from a 13 combo twice because I lost more than half my full health on easy because the bots know how to shock you in the first 3 seconds of the match so watch out for the desperate greedy developers that are too lazy to make more armor and why do the bots fight twice as fast than me because I was fighting a bot with the same weapon and I attacked them he did the same move and he hit me first and fix the bots get to hit first bug where you become a ghost and go throw the bots but they can hit you when they don’t even hit you and you have to go half way through them to actually hit them
Good, but
by Smith, Chris on 2019/06/29 15:28
Overall the game is good, but upgrading gear is a slow process and some of the events are absolutely ridiculous. Specifically the creepy party event that’s happening now. There’s a difference between difficult and impossible, and the creepy party one is impossible. It’s a problem when a good string of combos does about 1/4 of the enemy’s health and they kill you with one, two hits

This game needs fix.the beginning of the game is good it’s until you you get to chapter 6 you get no good armor out of the store only trash things most of the time . and some of the rewards of the side guest are terrible you get legion things when your in the heralds. When you fight in the story the enemy is always in impossible insane or hard and you can’t do nothing about because you get legion in the store while in heralds then the legion armor is very old
This is a bit rigged.
by shitismoreemtertainingthanthis on 2019/06/28 00:18
So...great game, honestly! It’s just rigged. Your events say something about equipment and skill are all that matter but that’s not true now is it? You could take on a mate with legendary armour and weapon with great skill and and get beat time and time again. You’ll need to work on the game mechanics if you want people to enjoy your game ya know?
Amazing!
by seattlepug 08 on 2019/06/27 21:55
I have been playing this game for about two years and I still play it! You can gems,coins, and money to get good gear right away but don’t worry you can still get gear without paying! Also, don’t worry about getting destroyed by others way above you’re league, you will be fighting people around you’re power and skill level. I highly recommend this game to anybody who likes fighting games. thank you for reading this!
Really Good Hardcore Game
by Ultraviolet134 on 2018/05/09 02:44
Ok so I am just going to get to the point. This game is really good as long as you aren’t really into video games or aren’t really dedicated. I am almost at the end of the game and it is constantly being upgraded and expanded so I have more and more to play. This game is requires more skill rather than what weapons you have so here’s a tip: chose the weapon you are most successful with. Anyway, this game has smooth colorful 3D graphics and realistic physics. BE WARNED: THIS GAME CAN MAKE YOU RAGE AS YOU GET STUCK ON AN IMPOSSIBLE CATEGORY LEVEL AND HAVE TO GRIND THE MINI QUESTS FOR BETTER LOOT. However, if you are good with your weapon you can defeat an opponent labeled impossible. Some say this game is only good to the point where you are almost maxed out and it is impossible to upgrade, here’s what I say; if you just stick with it and play to your heart’s content you will excel that the game. The storyline is easy to understand and reallly in-depth so kudos to you Nikki Limited for making a great campaign. Also, the variety of weapons and armor is amazing and the creator clearly but a lot of time and effort into this game. Overall I would say this is a good game for people who love RPGS and Duel Combat style games and for people who are dedicated and willing to persevere through challenging levels and challenges. The game keeps a good plot and the mechanics are easy and the graphics are beautiful. Well done Nikki Limited!
The micro transactions aren’t that bad and here’s why
by Baksheesh and on 2017/11/29 06:41
I played Shadow Fight 2 and comparing this one to the previous I would say it improves in some areas and in others it’s lacking. Some improvements I think is the combat. I personally like the different fighting styles with each faction. Some have strengths and their own weaknesses as well. One think that needs improvement on the the weapon balancing. I feel there are just some weapons that have combos that can be a bit much at times. I don’t really have a problem with the micro-transactions. I haven’t spend any real money into this game and I don’t plan on it. I think people are being harsh about them in this game. It’s a free game you guys. This is how they have to make money. I can’t relate to the people who say this game is pay to win. Of course there is gonna be that super duper legendary armor and weapons that you can only get through buying the card packs, but having the over powered armor sort of ruins the point of the game. Answer this question: If every person you fight is easy and not a challenge, then is the game still fun? I think most of you would say no it’s not. To the others, then you’re gonna have to spend money. In conclusion, this is a great game that shouldn’t be looked down upon for having micro transactions. If you think it’s bothering you that much then just play another free game.
Better rewards
by Yungwill1 on 2019/03/17 07:38
I like the game but it’s really hard to get any epic and legendary equipment/perks. I feel like you gotta but them in the shop. I just feel like when there’s some type of event, the value of the rewards should be way better. There should be less rare equipment/keys and more epic and legendary stuff. Because when I win rare stuff I don’t feel like I won anything because I always get rare stuff through missions, side quests and duels. I also think that players should be rewarded better based off of the difficulty of the mission. For example, there have been times where it took me a long time to beat a boss on insane or impossible. Then when I finally beat it I get rare equipment. If I win an insane or impossible mission I should be getting more gems, epic/legendary equipment, not rare equipment. This should really matter since the game gets harder as you progress. I shouldn’t have to keep buying great things, I should be rewarded well on my hard work. And it’s not like the items are cheap. There’s a lot expensive items in the store but most of the time I can’t get what I want because I don’t have enough money or gems. Like if the game is not gonna reward a lot of gems or money don’t make the items in the store really expensive. This also includes shadow energy. I just don’t understand how I can have legendary items equipped but they will barely hurt the opponent. It doesn’t live to the name.
The game is good but the chapter 4 bosses are way to op
by Johnny cage 54 on 2018/03/30 16:36
Look, this game is really amazing. Like the graphics are so good for an iPhone and just blows most games out the way. The fighting techniques and moves are really awesome too. But here is where the game gets its cons. Yeah the weapons are pretty cool but at the same time some won’t do you justice because if you really play the game and understand it your weapons really depend on range. (for example, if I had a spear and the other guy had a sword I would destroy because I could cheese the whole game by keeping him away from me buh yet still hitting him which also causes a lot of damage.) Also sometimes the game depends on speed of weapons. Like some time you would press the button but don’t hit 4 secs later. That’s a really late reaction time but for lighter weapons they hit right away so I believe the weapons need to be fixed. Also chapter 4 is a little to op because when you verse some of the shadow fighters all they need to do is hit you once or three times and you are already dead while you do not have any armor or good weapons to go against that fighter. It’s like a lose lose situation that is impossible to win. Plus when you receive upgrades it only upgrades that bad stuff in your inventory why don’t the game upgrade the good stuff it doesn’t make any sense. But really just the attacks on chapter 4 character are way to strong and impossible to beat for people who does not have really good stuff in their inventory.
Get your wallet out.
by I surf on 2018/11/16 06:22
Excellent game. The developers have figured out the analytics of pay for play gaming. I do not blame them, I congratulate them. This game has great graphics and modest controls. If you want to play on a budget; STAY with the initial weapons and armor until you MASTER them. Do not get lured into spending money because of defeats. Take your lumps and figure things out in the training room. Be patient and wait for the chests to open based on time, not spending the expensive gems. Enjoy this great game, but don’t even start buying anything. Truly, if you find yourself going to your wallet then uninstall immediately. The initial satisfaction, of being able to beat a heavy boss, will become distasteful after a few more trips to your wallet. Once again, go slow and don’t drool over those tantalizing new weapons they show you. They will only work for a few wins, then back to your wallet. Otherwise, be prepared to spend $$$$$. ($55-$100 before you come to your senses) Also..check critical hit %, on the weapons, early in your upgrades. Get good at those weapons early in your game play. Also focus and upgrade one weapon you are good at. ( one with a good critical hit percent) If you don’t focus on one weapon, you will waste time and later have to use weapons you hate.

What’s the point?
by pubesandwich on 2018/02/02 06:05
I’ve played this game for hours, minutes at a time, and there is some real problems... I’ll start with the pros- good graphics, (mostly) responsive controls, a few different game types... now the cons- hit detection at times can be arbitrary, it sometimes registers multiple button presses as one long one ( this leads to you foolishly winding up for a huge move only to be interrupted by a jab following a combo) the biggest flaw to me is PROGRESSION. After completing all of the story mode campaigns, I get greeted with “more coming soon” oh come on, was it that hard to make the game so far? Time based objectives in “side missions” will “allow” you to play roughly 4-5 matches per day, which will upgrade your existing equipment or (rarely) grant you new abilities.. “battle” mode is a supposed pvp game where you play an online opponent, and here is where the problem lies. I have found it impossible to reach 1600 battle rating, because every time I get close, it puts me against people with a waaaaay higher rating with way better equipment than I have, so I slowly go up the ladder only to get knocked down 2 pegs. To make it worse, the game gives you “upgrades” in the form of cards, but I find they tend to only upgrade the crappiest gear I have, instead of the better stuff I have, and there is no way to sell the old crap I had when I started. For now, a 3 star review, will review better if they improve the progression, I might even spend real money on it.
Great game, but has some issues.
by Gijchbkb on 2017/12/02 20:54
First of all I would like to say that I genuinely enjoy playing this game. It’s a great way to kill some time when you’re bored. However, this game is not without it’s faults. They’re more noticeable once you get to about chapter 2 in campaign and rank 3 in live fights, which aren’t actually live fights. They are more similar to CATS duel system. They use a players name and equipment, but are A.I. controlled. The biggest problem I have with this game are that once you get to a certain point, it gets to difficult to progress. When you’re at the katana boss in chapter 2 of campaign and at about rank 800 in duels. The way the game works is that you have to play duels to get better equipment to beat the campaign missions which in turn give you the xp needed to unlock higher level equipment also earned from duels. One you get to the guy with the katana you have to play duels to beat him. The problem is that the duel system is designed to keep you in check. It’ll let you win some battles and then give you a guy you can’t beat without better equipment, which you cannot earn without winning duels. Perhaps if chest unlocks were about 3 times shorter you could get equipment faster, but as is your inventory fills with chests so you cannot get more.
Wasted potential by Nekki
by Bezerk Legend on 2017/11/29 06:18
Horrible doesn't even have survival mode it's hard to gain progress and duels are not fairly matched the game gives u barely any money hard to upgrade too and no matter what rank your weapon is or how special it is its weaker than the most common weapons or armor which makes for instance a legendary weapon useless and like I said before hard to gain progress and upgrade gear because there is no other mode that can earn you money accept duel which is cheap and unfair and like 75% of the time your losing to higher ranked players and the duel weapons like the hammers axes or any other duel weapons should be a fast melee weapon and the weapon combos are ridiculous and don't make sense I mean why would u swing a sword upward jump and smack them in the head with it instead of 3 simple chops and I got a legendary chest plate and it's weaker than a rare chest plate and the Tap joy does not work the game gives u barely any gems 💎 and why are swift weapons so slow??? are u a snail or a Ninja? and the shadow attacks are ineffective and yes they are slow too so and you need to add better perks for the heavy armor besides colossal steps and the AI corners you into a wall and beats the crap out of u and you can't do ANYTHING so this game has to many problems so don't download this game!!!!!!
I like the game a lot.
by Cbabynurse on 2018/09/07 22:37
Personally, I have played “Shadow Fight” since Shadow Fight 2 first released. As I saw the trailers and ads for Shadow Fight 3, I got really excited. Whenever I got my hands of Shadow Fight 3, I played it for hours. Right now I am so happy for 2 main reasons: One being that the game is actually difficult. In the second game, you could defeat Impossible rated levels with ease once you got used to the controls. In the third game, however, that is not the case. While yes, you can defeat Impossibles, but the game is much more difficult. The second good thing is when you get to the end of the game, instead of just doing raids like in Shadow Fight 2, you actually get events for special armors, and you also get to do duels whenever you want. A third thing that completely blows this game out of the water for me is no energy. For anyone not familiar with energy from Shadow Fight 2, you could do 5 battles until your energy ran out, and it took 20 minutes to get one energy back. In other words, you could play the game for long. The last part of the game that is nice is fancier graphics. In the second game, it was literally black, like a shadow. Now it has nice graphics, which I guess just makes the game more fun to look at.
I love this game, but it has a huge issue.
by Curt E. on 2017/12/09 15:37
I’ll keep it short because nobody likes walls of text. This game is extremely fun, has great graphics and fantastic gameplay. The micro transactions aren’t forced on you at all, and on top of everything it actually has a story with fun bosses. However, the weapon balancing is off-the-charts bad. It’s like Rock Paper Scissors, almost, except way worse, so ignore the analogy. I was getting annihilated in PvP by Spears when I had an axe, because I had no range. Then I unlocked a spear and I annihilated everyone else in PvP because I did have range (and a BS attack that basically guarantees a free hit). Now that my level is higher, I’m running into people with curved swords that can trap me in automatic 4-hit combos, then start over again because I have literally no time to attack, their attacks are just way too fast. The shadow abilities are a little ridiculous, too, simply for the fact they are 100% unable to be blocked. Anyways, apologies for the wall of text after I said I wouldn’t give it. This game is genuinely very fun, and probably my favorite I have installed right now, this issue is just too big to ignore, and it makes many fights feel unfair, or at a disadvantage simply because of what you’ve earned from crates, which is a huge no-no. I would absolutely still recommend this game to anyone, but the developers NEED to fix the balancing.
You don’t have to pay a cent
by Redwood Rogue on 2018/05/26 17:37
Being honest here, this is perhaps one of the best mobile games I have ever played. Yes, I see the problems with pvp and items, but that was my only setback. Even so, those problems were fixed by the latest update. To the people stuck on side quests, equipment is not the entire point of a game, you need true skill. This can be done via training to see what fighting style is right for you. I am at approximately a power level of 5,900 and used to fight people with up to six hundred power levels higher than me. Most of the time, I won. To the people stuck on the main quest, keep trying. It’ll work out. I could not tell you how many times I had to fight against a boss to defeat it, but I pulled through. I have completed all four chapters from determination, skill, and of course, a bit of power. I have not once bought gems to help my progress , yet now I am on top pvp rank, which is now currently Legend, the eleventh dan. I would also like to mention I am thirteen years old. Most of you are older than I am, so you have no excuse whatsoever. For those who are younger than me, I want to wish that you don’t give up on this game. It has potential and never ceases to amaze me.
Waste/ takes little skill just money honestly
by Cancer game reviewer on 2018/04/19 21:52
This game is a waste of time it’s more of a game where you just open chests with a long wait time you can’t progress fast and have fun because you only level up through story but to play each level you have to have a even higher power level which you get through chest and most of the time the good weapons require a higher level. Also you can’t progress with pure skill because every time you beat one story level the next part of the story is literally impossible. Also you have to wait for more side quests which are the only thing to get better weapons but they also have a long wait time. Yes the game is fun but that’s when either your evenly matched or have a higher power level. With not being able to progress with pure skill you can’t because attack’s others have when they are a lot higher level then you can take your whole health bar down with a simple combo move. It’s also pretty hard to dodge because once you mess up a dodge you get knocked down and they can hit you down again before you have the chance to do something. I’m fine with waiting for chest but maybe they could shorten some. Also I think you should be able to level up weapons and armor through multiplayer. Another thing is adding friends so you can fight them. I like the training aspect but maybe you could have her fight back with out damaging you so you could fight infinitely.
You will rage
by Fraktuss on 2018/03/25 05:20
Everyone, please save yourself an anger management class because this game made me rage more than any other game I have ever played in my life. There are bad bugs and sometimes your attacks phase through the enemies and than they get a clear shot. There are spammers that use specific weapons like the naginata and glaive to spam the same button again and again. It always gives the AI the advantage so like if you swing a heavy attack it will either phase through them or go into slow mo but make them a smidge faster and they escape and screw you up. I wish that the creators will see this and fix these issues because I mostly love this game but it makes me rage so hard I get dizzy. The dev. Make it very hard to beat AI when in farther levels without using your own money to buy extra packs. I know, that’s what games usually do but I wish that they made legendary and epic packs cheaper so you wouldn’t be stuck on a level for days and stop feeding off people’s savings. There will also be a weapon on display in a menu but it doesn’t actually make it possible to get it like I see a katana on the cover but never have I seen it in game. Do you guys see where it says, “earn epic items” if you scroll a bit in this menu above, there is a common iaido katana that is gold and black but it is not possible to get as of yet.
Meh

This is one of the better fighting games on a mobile device I’ve found so far. The graphics are well done and the game mechanics are well done too. But the game also have many issues I would like to address. First of, this thing lags hard than running highest graphics setting on a farming simulator on a MacBook. And it’s too the point that I had to leave the game and clear it from history.(even on low graphics) Second the game has a hard progression. There were times where I was a literal sitting duck getting beat in one to three shots by my opponents both in story and online. I had to carefully make every move and spam certain attacks in order to counter the cpu. And not only that, but the loot you get from wins are either little to none or dirt useless. I understand the story mode is still coming out with new chapters and by that point you should have a decent gear set up.(Mine is really good due to them being from events) To sum this game up, it’s a really good and well done fighting game for both new players and experienced gamers. But be warned that you will come to a point where you feel like you need to buy gems to continue on. So far I haven’t had to need because I was patience enough to attempt the impossible fights and slowly fight my way through the storyline. But all in all it’s a decent game.
Best mobile game ever!
by s sc dominater on 2019/03/31 02:33
I give this game a 5/5 because if how good it is it my not be that good to most people but to me this is the best mobile game in the world like most mobile games i would play when i first get it for only one week but then after that i stop playing it forever but this game is not like that the only problems i have is the way you have to hit opponents to actually hurt them like sometimes i get a little frustrated because i hit somebody and it does nothing then the opponent its me and im not talking about when i try to attack a opponent with a legion weapon while she/he is attacking im just saying i think you should make it like you can make it so when you do an attack and you don’t do a direct attack just make it so it will lower the chances of critical or shock but this is really the only problem i have besides when opponents don’t hit you but they still do damage sometimes this game is very dramatic onetime i was fighting someone and they had a spear and it was when i was close to dying so it was in slow motion then I realized that the spear did not actually hit me you dont actually have to fix this but i would really like you to it would just make your game better
Great Job Devs!
by TinjaMan on 2017/11/29 21:14
Ok, so in my last review, I had given this game a rating of only 2 stars because the control responsiveness was lacking to the point that it made the game just unenjoyable. The devs listened and along with other bug fixes, they released an update that finally made the game live up to its true potential. From the original Shadow Fight, till now, the game has come a long way. I’ve been a fan since the beginning but this installment really takes the cake. I’m absolutely hooked. Once you learn the control mechanics, and strategies your moves, this game becomes truly addicting. The story mode may seem challenging, but that’s because it is. The developers made the game so you don’t advance to quickly, by having the player perform pvp battles in order to gain cards that strengthen the players build to advance to the next chapters. You can either buy gems to unlock better cards or speed up chests, or just fight pvp battles and wait to unlock chests. Either way, there’s no need for p2w. The game automatically matches you with people with the current gear score as you so there is not a lot, if any, unfair advantages. This game is a must for fans of the fighting game genre. Highly recommend.
Not impressed
by TheJLB8483 on 2018/04/27 01:15
Alright so you can’t move the quest line along unless you upgrade gears. Fine. Can’t upgrade gears well enough unless you continually grind the duel arena and get the chests. Common chests takes 3 hours to unlock... 4 spots, 3 hours for the lowest chest. But get this. The dueling system is based on your duel rating. This means someone can be twice as far in the quest line and have much better gear and because they have a lower duel rating, you’ll be put up against them. You will have no chance. I have legendary gear from the second faction. I can hit an opponent repeatedly in the head and barely do damage but they can hit me with one good combo and that’s it for me. Equipment from the third or even fourth faction and I still go against them just because they have a lower duel rating. I have a legendary chain weapon and the basic combo can have up to 4 head hits in a row and if I’m up against someone with third faction gear, I only do a quarter of the damage to them than they would do with one critical hit with or without weapon. Had a duel, 60 seconds into the duel and I get them down to 25% without me taking a hit and then shock them. They do one punch and take 80% of my health from full. I wish I was exaggerating. It’s absolutely ridiculous. Fix this so that people in the same part of the quest line duel each other.
No
by Add in More on 2018/02/19 05:11
You can get pretty far with F2P but after like weeks of playing this, you probably get screwed over. One, the matchmaking obviously will screw you over (Clash Royale Style) where you get matched with people with legendary gear and weapons with 900 item power compared to your 700 item power with rare armor. Two, the bosses in the main quests are very annoying and almost impossible to beat if you are F2P. For Example, Itu can fully regenerate unless you go behind him and attack but his weapon combo can literally destroy you in 3 seconds. Three, some weapons are just over powered like the spear for legion. It has a move where you can hit your enemies 5 feet away without getting hit. Sabers have a fast stream combo which if you get into your health immediately drops from 100% to 30%. Finally, shadow abilities are really overpowered. For example, an uppercut ability combined with a rift repeated is going to bring down an enemy. Trust me, I already tried and destroyed some people NEAR my item power. It has a good concept, but some changes will be needed if this game wants to have a good life time. Edit: It’s terrible, match making kills everyone. Apparently blocking a Katana hit does 1 / 3 dmg of your health. Kicking is very slow. There’s many bad thing about the game that I could name but I won’t. Rating went from 3 to 1 stars. Don’t waste your time playing the game. Trust me the pay to win is way worse than Clash Royale ( Dead game ).
Some problems
by Buzzwood on 2017/12/14 19:31
I liked to play shadow fight 2 on insane and some times impossible. I had to do fast paced combos and then try to stay out of the enemies reach. When I tried it in this game it really backfired. Kicking is sloooooow. People could heavy attack me while I’m still trying to kick! There are no combos anymore and just swipes, and if you get caught in the corner with someone more powerful than you then your dead. Block, dodging, and attacking doesn’t get you out of that loophole. I know the game just came out and it will hopefully improve, but these problems are just hard to deal with. Edit: Its been a while and kicks do improve later on in the game, but enemies just spam a combo that is out of your range and does a lot of damage even if your blocking. I’m still playing this game hoping for an update to these things and when it comes I’ll change my review. Edit Once Again: I finished all the levels so far, so I go into pvp. I then get two shot by people who have over 150 levels above me. I need to mention the fact that I COMPLETED THE CAMPAIGN SO FAR, so I can only improve at a very slow rate. At the point I’m in I need to spend money to actually win any more games against those kinds of people. Speaking of people, are those “players” even real? Please fix these problems. I know I seem like a salty critic, but I just want the game to improve.
Good except for the duel system
by NH413 on 2018/12/23 17:51
I loved playing Shadow Fight 2 before this game released, and I was so excited to hear that it would have a multiplayer/PvP aspect incorporated into the base game instead of being added on later. When the game came out it felt a little sluggish but I got used to that (some of the controls do still feel unresponsive sometimes though). The game feels good overall with it’s PvE, story, and side quests, and I’m extremely glad they added survival. This brings me to the duels. They were fun at first, but the more you play, the more you realize that (even with really high level gear) it’s just a luck of the draw on whether you get someone who does enough damage that tickling you with a feather would be more effective or someone who will hit you with one kick while you’re blocking and take away a quarter of your health. I’ve been stuck at the same place in the Warrior Dan because my matches keep alternating between these two scenarios to the point where it doesn’t feel like I’ll make any more progress. It also just isn’t fun anymore to lose just because you apparently have “worse gear” than the other person (even though my ability and gear rating are both higher on the initial fight screen).
Great game, needs improvement
by Phinu55665466 on 2018/07/19 15:21
I loved shadow fight 2, and when shadow fight 3 came out I was so happy, but it wasn't as great as Ive hoped. First of all the thing that needs serious improvement is the pvp fights. I hate how if I get set up with an opponent that is op compared to me, which guarantees that I will lose (trophies), I would recommend that they would have a system where you could choose your opponent or have a button where you could move onto the next opponent before starting a fight, like clash of clans, so you can battle someone that you have a chance against. Another thing of pvp is that they need to improve defense measures against cheaters, Ive have gone against many opponents that have a less power rating than me, but kill me in two hits. I would also recommend adding a report button to report cheaters. Last problem I have with PvP is that yesterday I was playing and in the middle of the battle my screen turned grey and I couldn't do anything, causing me to restart the app and causing me to surrender, since I left the battle, and losing trophies. There are also some bugs they could fix, for instance if Im throwing a ranged weapon with a certain main weapon equiped(such as chained weapons), the throwing weapon doesn't leave my hand but instead appears like Im using the force to push it.
AWESOME
by Applesauce berries on 2018/02/26 01:21
i love this game. its simple enough that it's not overwhelming, yet theres enough playstyle variety to keep it entertaining. it would be nice if it was a little easier to obtain the common currency, but over all its amazing. i really appreciate the zero energy cost play and really appreciate not having to "pay" to upgrade items. just about every element in this game is perfect. i love i can keep trying as many times as i want to without worrying about having to wait for a stamina bar to fill up. i dont know what else to say! maybe increase the amount of loot received? or perhaps reduce the time it takes to unlock chests... all in all, its my favorite game BEST. GAME. EVER. i am SO excited for chapter 4!!! i will say it does seem "slow" in a few places, for example, the loot chests when unlocked (after the time to unlock is over), its a slow process, and showing leveled up items is slow. these are minor, but at the same time it has a sort of lethargic feel. the chapter 3 update was perfect. brilliant. awesome awesome awesome. this game is slowly and surely becoming an absolutely perfectly executed game that provides every delight needed to feel satisfied.
Fun, just some fixes
by CaiLu2 on 2019/06/26 13:56
During events, rarity matters most. During the menace swamp event, I used a unique set, yet failed. However, during the blossom event, it was really easy with a different unique set. (I used the blossom set, which is weaker for the first, and the monkey king, which was stronger, second) does power matter? Also please add survival for all days, it gets boring to do duels over and over when I get stuck. Another way to keep me entertained is a friending system. Could we have sparring matches with our own friends? New thing, ducking under projectiles are broken for me. The joystick part is already down, but my character doesn’t duck, and I get hit by the projectile, maybe even die. Legion, too OP, Heralds, not précise really, I equipped all perks that were involved in critical hits, Dynasty, combo part, could it be even more damage? The moves look cool too, but when u perform it and it does little damage, it just disappoints me, so I pick Heralds. Basically, make legion less powerful, like maybe they take slightly more damage when they cannot be stopped. Dynasty needs to get more powerful, they don’t get much attention because they aren’t good, u guys made legion OP, do it to Dynasty. Heralds, umm, critical hits are weak for me. Whenever I perform one, it is the same as a normal hit. Can u guys explain that?
Difficulty Spikes
by BaboonOfDoom on 2019/06/26 17:12
Good. But not great. The main quest fights get ridiculous with difficulty spikes. And it really grinds my gears that you can’t do an unlimited Survival Mode like the previous game. Instead you have to wait 9 hours after every time you play Survival Mode? WHAT?? WHY?? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THAT?? I’ve loved this fighting game series. It’s been the best out there. They really outdid themselves with the visuals and mechanics on Shadow Fight 3. I was impressed! It CAN be A LOT of fun. The story isn’t anything special so far, but there comes a time when you’ve upgraded your weapons and gear to most you can afford without spending REAL money, and you’ll get whooped in less then ten seconds sometimes during the main quest line, and I’m not bad at this game. Your armor that costs hundreds if not thousands of “shadow energy” becomes as easy as cutting paper all of a sudden, and the main quest guys do soooo much damage all of a sudden, like all that time and energy spent in upgrading your gear just becomes this repetitive cycle that isn’t fun. I get it, they wanna make money, they need to make money, but this is pretty ridiculous at times. It’s frustrating. At least have unlimited Survival Mode so we can have fun if we don’t want to spend so much time and effort getting obliterated by the difficulty spikes.
Rigged
by Livin'OnAPrayer on 2019/01/27 06:23
This game is fun, if you ignore the fact that the enemies can chain attacks that leave you in a permanent stun. There’s nothing you can do when an enemy is getting a combo on you. But when you try to combo an enemy, (since they’re bots) their reaction times are instant, meaning they will come off the ground instantly and body slam you and hit you one or two times. Also, if the game wants you to win, you’ll know. You’ll all of the sudden get hit with a 13 combo and you can’t get out of it because each hit stuns you for a split second, where the superhuman bot will just keep laying hits on. That or you’ll get “shocked” and drop your weapons and have to fight sword vs fists. This makes for a game that would be really fun to play if the owners weren’t greedy pricks who hold you back from progression whenever they want and who made the bots so overpowered that they react instantly. I mean seriously! You’ll use an attack and the bot will instantly dodge/kick in the perfect spot because the program knows exactly what will happen. I can’t tell you how many times I go to use a shadow ability and the bot somehow knows so he lands a combo perfectly during the split second ability animation. So i’m giving this a 2/5. Great game honestly, but you can’t beat the bots, that is unless the game wants you too, then it will be too easy and you’ll two hit them.
Progression
by blazein1020 on 2018/07/29 02:44
I like this game because it’s hard core its graphics are good and it’s super fun. The part I hate about the game the most is progression and chest I don’t like the progression of the story because after you do all the quest you have nothing to do and also they give you lackluster gear and it’s not enough to close the difficulty gap .I know I said I like the game because it’s hard core but I kinda don’t like the fact the story mode opponents rating go up immensely after 2 fights . Then we have to play pvp to get better gear which is the other topic I want to talk about. The chest in PvP are not hard to require you to win obviously but that’s not the problem, the problem about the chest is that it’s just like the quest unless your luck and get rare or legendary chest you will get common chest that you have to wait like 6 hrs to open and get armor that won’t help with anything besides helping you die quicker but, this game feel very satisfying when you beat the boss you have been stuck on but still I kinda don’t like how the developers of this game push legion as the faction easiest to get in my opinion it’s the worst but that’s why it’s easier but still wish when they hand out event stuff they let you choose the faction you get the gear from instead of it defaulting to legion
Updates and Improvements
by ImaniCheyenne on 2017/12/23 17:49
I love this game as a continuation of SF2. Been waiting for about 8 years and not that it’s here I have a few things to say. First, I’m glad they took the energy out. I use to hate having to wait and fight. The second thing is why can’t we by the cards we want? I rather choose my favorite weapon to fight with and armor to progress without changing anything. My favorite color is red. Third things is what’s up with the pvp here? Why can’t it be real time pvp? That would’ve made this game awesome and another thing y’all need is clans/guilds within factions. At least 3 or 4 factions you can choose from and every week or so whose ever at the top get special bonuses. The last thing is the chest. Why do we have to wait hours to open a box when we play 10 games within one hour? Please cut the times down. Other than that, this game is amazing and worth every star. It’s like mobile mortal combat because the regular mortal combat do not have nothing on this game. Thank you nekki for not disappointing. I hope y’all see this and make it more enjoyable and interactive among the players. XxFreeWillxX
Fun, but infuriating.
by JourneyWithJC on 2019/03/26 22:40
This is gonna be quite short. I have found this game to be quite entertaining, a pretty big upgrade from the previous game, with all its new mechanics and such. This game is a big and I mean, BIG money grabber. At some points in the game, you will reach levels that require you to purchase new items with coins that you haven't earned enough of, forcing you to in order to continue the game, purchase some with real money. Crashing is also a big issue. This game has crashed EVERY OTHER TIME I start up a match. Let's say I play with game for 15 minutes a day. The game will have crashed up to 8 or even more times, based on how long the rounds are. This also is one of the big infuriating factors. During a match, the AI can also be extremely annoying, because they can spam the same attack the entire match without anything you can do about it. For example, I'm trying to fight of this one enemy in the corner of a map, and he's spamming the "slam" attack or whatever you call it, and I can't move or do anything, but this is just very minor. I'm asking myself when this happens, "wait this is a wrestling game?" And it just infuriates me. Do what you can with this review, I don't know what you are going to do to improve the game.
Game is great but..
by MatthewXIII on 2018/08/06 07:30
Ok so I’ve written a review ages ago and months later I got so fed up with this part of the game I uninstalled the game. The thing I was so fed up with was the fact you couldn’t skip any side quests, for crying out loud it’s a side quest it’s not important so it should be skippable especially when there are mini blocks for the level like only using kicks for example. It makes it absolutely frustrating and nearly unplayable when you are just wanting to level up and enjoy a game that without that problem is amazing. Ok so I reinstalled the game recently and they’ve changed a few things however they didn’t change and make the side quests skippable however they instead made it only one side quest available at a time when originally it was two. HAVING TWO side quests made the issue at least somewhat bearable allowing you to have a different quest til you sadly end up with both of them being annoying. Pay to win people would probably find these little locks annoying as well. For crying out loud please make these annoying side quests skippable because I don’t wanna leave the game again, I really love everything else about the game and loved the second installment and I would love so much if this was fixed.
Is it just me, or...?
by TheGamerFox on 2018/07/17 00:16
Firstly, this is a step up from the last one. No energy requirements, no penalties for needing to try again, and the ability to mix and match move sets. However, I have major gripes. The A.I. feels so much more aggressive than the last game. Whenever I get into a fight, I have to start stunlocking the enemy, and keep completely and perfect dominance in the fight, or else everything hits the fan. As soon as your opponent gets a second to breath, they will either do one of two things. A) stunlock you and somehow be faster than you in almost everything you try, or B) Throw you to the ground, repeatedly. This second one is so annoying, especially since it feels harder to pull off in this game as opposed to the last, and the a.i can do it because they don’t have button combos to press, they just do whatever they want with ease. The card system is ok, and at least you aren’t railroaded into using a specific weapons at certain points like the last game, but the a.i’s difficultly and the random and convenient criticals the enemy lands are too much to handle at certain points. Granted, I usually fight in battles sooner with harder difficulty, but that has no effect on aggression of the a.i, only gear rating. Developers, help?
Don’t download this, shadow of its former self
by Dominic 828473 on 2019/02/08 15:19
Most of these reviews never talk about anything past the first chapter because they quit before that, but I’ve played the game since the first month it came out and I recently quit the game myself. When it came out the game was decent at the time, the only problem was that certain weapons dominated and the AI was relentless but the game was still fun until you beat everything and there wasn’t anything to do. Then chapter 4 came out making it the game new again. The AI was fun and challenging at times and didn’t spam anything. Weapons worked and the game was perfect. Then chapter 5 and 6 comes out... The came became unbearable past the campaign. Events are recycled, AI constantly blocks, certain weapons were nerfed to useless, there’s no variety in style because if you want the highest level stuff you wear the event gear the leaderboards need to be smaller because they’re pretty rigged with the same players always being on top. The game is pay to win if you want a unique style and have a good power level and the worst part of all of this is the Devs don’t care or listen to the community and only care about what makes them a quick buck. Don’t pay any money into this game if you do get it and don’t expect any thing you don’t like about the game to be fixed because it won’t, the community has tried.
It's somewhat lackluster
by Sir Lemmington on 2017/12/01 01:39
Overall I think the game is fun, but compared to shadow fight 2 the only thing that was really improved is the fighting system. The way you get new stuff in this game is a slight improvement to the last, but in the end i prefer the lasts games way of introducing you to certain weapons. Getting new stuff in this is fun and easy at first but once you reach the end of the first chapter, it takes a long time to get anything at all. The end boss in chapter 1 is very difficult to beat and takes some trial and error (Especially for me because equipment is so low level that i do no damage but take tons). The boss is very easy and simple at first but once you win one round and he stays in shadow mode he becomes extremely difficult, especially with how his hammer throw is so quick but hard to dodge and how you can feel cheated out of a round because of the way the cool off for attacks can get you killed for his uninterruptible move. I see things like this as things that will be big problems especially for bosses later in the game. I really liked the old game and this one seems like a tone of fun, but some mechanics just need a bit of work, like bosses should give cues when performing certain attacks.
Infuriatingly offensive disgrace to gaming
by awioefubw on 2018/07/24 22:20
This is a horrible game. Not because it isn’t fun. It is beautiful and one of the most potentially enjoyable fighting games I’ve seen for iOS. “Potentially” being the key word. This game represents the ugliest aspect of gaming. The only way to continue to enjoy the game is to keep paying more and more money. If you don’t keep buying more you can’t advance. Not only that, you can’t even play previous missions. The only option is to spend money or advance so slowly that it’s no longer fun. I know this is a common practice. I’ve seen plenty of it and it makes me mad every time. But not being able to play previous fights in campaign mode is ridiculous and an obvious ploy to keep you spending. This approach is unethical and shows the true values of the developer which is clearly making money at the cost of the experience over customer service and making a fun game. I’ve even taken the bait and buying 10$ upgrade only got me a few more fights in campaign mode before I, again, had no chance of winning. The game frequently says, “looks like you’re having trouble winning, want to head to the store”. I’d use expletives but I want people to see this so no one spends money on the pathetic individuals who helped make this money making machine disguised as a game. So I’ll just say have a wonderful day.
Latency Latency Latency Gate
by bluebeemeer on 2018/05/28 21:28
Some welcome changes, there on the right track but the track is still broken, the bot control avatars hit when it wants to hit, kick when it wants to kick and combo with the quickness, but my avatar has way too much Latency, when both are standing still and in that 2,3 milliseconds I'm tapping and tapping a punch or a kick, and absolutely nothing is happening, then you guess it the bot avatar unleash on me when clearly I had the win with one punch or kick, my controls just would not respond, in boxing you are instructed to protect yourself at all times, but how can you when you guys throttled us back, sounds familiar? kind of how apple was throttling back on the iPhone's performance! You guys are throttling us on our performance, please just stop it, again! Ain't nobody trying spend a grip of money to send your kids through college to play a pretty decent game, let it be our skills only that defines the win or defeat, not a built in latency gate which slant the victory in your favor, again it's a pretty decent game and you get hooked, so as James Brown said it, "please please please" fix the track and remove the latency so I can gladly give you that 5th ⭐️
People refuse to grind and work hard and expect it to come easy
by Chriskendrick68 on 2018/06/03 20:58
Just read the title, that’s all of the problems with the new people. You do a fight on any difficulty above normal and expect it to be easy. It’s ABOVE NORMAL. It’s not going to be easy, the developers made it that way on purpose. And to all you people saying that you have to pay in to this game to win you’re just impatient and stupid! I haven’t put a cent into this game and I’ve beaten all the chapter storylines and I’m above 3000 trophies. The AI is much harder than last update, I’ll admit that. But once you find the pattern just like any other update it’s easy to win. Just be patient and grind out the game and don’t get mad when you get one shot by someone when the difficulty on impossible difficulty. Just grind the game out and be patient. You don’t have to spend money. I’m at 3000+ trophies at the moment, 6000 gear score, and have beaten The Whole storyline with putting ONE penny into this game. Reading these reviews makes me want to die because you people are so stupid and lazy and refuse to grind the game for more than 2 hours before expecting it to come easy to you, so then you go complain.
Needs a lot of work!!

I’ve been playing this game for a few months now and ever since the recent update, although they added unlimited side quests. They mess up the way the rules work, for instance I’ve been stuck on this one mission for a week now, the rule is head hits only, but the AI doesn’t have that rule applied to it, which is not how it worked before. While I’m sitting here trying to do combos that will grant me a head hit all the AI has to do is throw me to the ground of sweep my legs and he gets critical hits every time, or I get shocked and I loose my weapons and now I have to fight with my hands while he still has a ranged weapon like a staff or spear. I really enjoyed this game before the update, even though I would rage on occasion, but at least then I knew it was my fault because I wasn’t playing smart, but now I try to play smart but I can’t win because the AI doesn’t have to follow the rules. Also the hit boxes in this game are so finicky it’s ridiculous, if you go for a jab to the torso, somehow the opponent doesn’t take damage, then they return with a critical hit which knocks out like 40% of your health. This game has potential to be a really good game if they fix all of the bugs, but until then, this game is getting a one star from me. It’s just almost impossible to win sometimes because of all of the bugs.
This Game Is Broken
by Spam Mason on 2018/05/26 20:36
First off, I don’t hate this game. It’s graphics and gameplay are really good, and the variety of fighting styles, strategies, and weapons are also great. The problem lies in the developers decision to monetize this game as much as they can. Loot boxes (Card Packs and Chests), are very prevalent in this game, and only once in a blue moon you can get an upgrade you really need, only once every 20 chests or packs you get something helpful. Duels, their so called PvP mode, is hilariously broken. It doesn’t let you play with real players, it’s just an AI that takes the form of a real player, with identical fighting styles. With the newest update, the fighting style the AI uses does not allow for weapon usage or even simple attacks like kicks, the AI flips you if you attack in close range, while the AI themselves don’t even attack, yet still win almost every time. The matchmaking system has been improved, but still isn’t great, and takes serious grinding, usually at least two weeks to allow you to move into the next rank. I’ve been playing this since November, and yet, I still don’t know why I still play. Duels, it’s loot system, and it’s slow story mode ruin what’s otherwise a really good fighting game. I really hope the developer can fix this extremely broken game.

Cool game but one problem.
by Future Relics on 2019/01/23 20:34
This is a great game and I highly recommend it. But the AI in the game (which is every opponent) have the power to counter every attack you throw. This completely ruins all skill in players because any attack they throw can be countered in less than a millisecond. Your only hope in a hard battle is to counter the Bot’s move which is pretty difficult. Because if you don’t throw much attacks then the bot can either wear down your health bar with attacks while your blocking or they can grab you. (which is unblockable) I once played a match and got grabbed 14 times. The trophy system is not very original unlike all the dynamics of the game. The trophy system is faulty because there could be an account with the same amount of trophies but a WAY higher gear value. This is a guaranteed loss which is unfair. And ranged weapons are key because the AI cannot counter you if you have a high range weapon. (For example: spear, and chain knife.) the boys should not have this power to counter everything you throw (especially with a short range weapon) because there is no point in playing a game where you have no power to do much.
Game is a cheat
by Mr. Duece on 2019/05/11 02:21
Idk how, but the game managed to be even more cheat than shadow fight 2. I was fighting Itu and he was so rigged bro. This mans recovery time was head over heels above mine despite having no buffs, there would be instances where my hook swords or hands hit his body before he hit mine and his attacks got priority, when I went to jump kick or wheel kick, the button would literally be 100% unresponsive(you know the times where a jump kick or a wheel kick would absolutely devastate Itu). I kid you not, when I was hitting home or got hit by him the game mad either him or me wait until he was ready, then he would transition into a grab move. I would be standing still(which is this games stupid substitute for a block button) and his hits would still give me critical hits. All of this and he was only insane difficulty. Not even the highest difficulty. Which makes me think, when June said that he was too powerful for me, was that just underestimation despite him being insane difficulty, or was it the game literally telling me, spend more credits, time, and/or money on the game, then we will stop this character from cheating? This kinda stuff happened in Shadow Fight 2 but now all the characters are 3D, as opposed to black stick figures and I can even more clearly see the BS. There is no skill gap, there’s only a grind gap.
don’t bother. good concept failed execution
by Thatshooterdood on 2019/02/12 10:23
level scaling is terrible. takes way to long to progress story as it requires you to have certain stats to do enough damage to make it worth even attempting STORY MISSIONS let alone events that if you complete give you ridiculous gear that can jump your stats if only it were even possible to progress that far unless you’ve already spent countless hours to play the game. it doesn’t work well for new players. pvp is an utter joke. just don’t bother. it’s not fun to gamer rage at a mobile game when it shouldn’t be impossible to beat an ai that shouldn’t be able to learn your attack patterns before you even fight it. the concept is cool but they failed at executing it. half the ai know how you fight with your current load out before you even start. more so the event fights. you get through first two then third is literally impossible because it knows exactly what you’re going to do before you do it because it knows that’s the only move that combos after the other. on top of that it doesn’t get any sort of combo fatigue like the play gets constantly. i can’t combo anything higher than a 7 then go to the even and the computer hits me for a 15 combo and knocks me out before i can lay a finger on it. there’s a good concept but a failed execution here
It is good but progression is really conflicting
by Battle brawler on 2019/06/06 13:08
This game is really great. It has a good and satisfying combat with a variety of factions and weapons with its own combos and move sets. However I feel the progression is contradicting to this “rpg-looter” style of game. In order to level up and gain xp it can only be done through story mode. Which sounds fine until you beat 3 story missions and the difficulty cranks up 200 gear score and it says u need better gear to beat the next mission. But if u beat a boss that is significantly higher than u it will drop gear that can only be equipped at a certain level and you cannot get to that level unless you play the story but the story is way to hard for your level. So your just stuck in this infinite cycle. And yes I know there is duels and side missions but they don’t give xp and they are on timers; side missions have a 5 hour Cooldown and and duel chests are on an even longer Cooldown and u can only get them 1 at a time. In addition the duel chests will most likely drop upgrades for the gear that you cannot equip because of your level. Your just stuck in an infinite loop hole unless you play everyday and get lucky with your loot drops.
New Player Beware!!
by G yrbcgfb on 2019/02/19 04:03
Used to be a solid game, it was heavily monetized, but playing f2p was possible. After the updates of last year, it is now incredibly hard to get new items and materials to level up your gear. The AI is broken enough that it will block 80% of your attacks and be able to counter you on pretty much anything when you get to middle level. The AI is so broken it can predict your move set based on your button press within a thousandth of a second and make a move accordingly. You WILL get stuck on levels for weeks at a time because without loot, you can’t upgrade, and without upgrades, you can’t play. Soon you’ll fall into a progression of logging in, seeing that you don’t get any good loot, maybe try (and get destroyed) in an insane level, then log off. OR, you can spend hundreds of dollars to get more loot boxes and progress. But of course, this is where the second part of the AI comes in. No matter how many good items you have, the game will ALWAYS pair you with someone with better equipment because guess what, the “multiplayer” aspect is actually just the same AI system. Nekki really screwed the pooch with this installment, and now it’s doomed to die because of its inaccessibility. Go play the second game, at least that one has some modicum of fairness.
Not bad, but please read!
by Failbaddon on 2018/04/25 21:36
The gameplay is fun and presentation is cool, but there are a few areas that can be improved. The most glaring problem is with the card system. After completing missions, fighting duels, or opening chests, you get several reward cards that unlock new item/abilities and upgrade existing ones with duplicates. Among them is usually a bonus mystery card that you can get from watching ads. The problem is this doesn’t work half the time (not exaggerating) with some sort of server timeout and the game just goes “oh well...” Guys, I’m wasting my time watching ads that give you revenue anyway, can’t you find away to fix this or to tag a user when it fails so they can be compensated later? The other problems is that it feels like the pcs are often slower to attack than the npc’s, as if there is a delay or the attack animations are longer. The third is that matchmaking is iffy. I’ve been paired against players who have obviously sunk real money into this so their damage and defense are miles ahead of mine despite having similar progress. I’m not saying separate the payers, but maybe offset the matching so they fight veterans with higher levels.
So many things are really good, but...
by Fidgets digits on 2018/01/21 18:32
I think that the chests are fine. The A.I. could use some work, and I know you are working on that. But can’t you make a store. Like in the last one. Keep the chests for the enchantments and abilities, or variations on what you have. It’s like you guys looked at EA's screw up and said,”Let’s try that. Maybe it will work for our game!” Even though it makes the game pay to win still, and is just as bad as what EA is doing. Also make the times on the chests lower, and don’t limit the side quests. That is so annoying for a game where you can barely do anything already. Also make experience available from everything but the duels. Fire whoever said experience points should only be given after mission fights. Because I have so much stuff that is one level above me that would help me on the main mission and you just dangle it in front of my face, and it’s not like I can use the card packs because the stupid random draw never upgrades any gear that I use to be better than what I already had. It’s really a good game, and I do still recommend it, but please fix some of the glaring issues and make it less freemium.
Great concept
by WhenGoatsRule on 2018/09/25 02:48
When I first installed this game, I was awe inspired that an app could have such an awesome art style and still be a fun game to play. This is by far the best fighting game on phone, but I didn’t rate it as such because of a few major flaws. First off, some moves are nearly impossible to pull off when fighting an active opponent, like the grab or arm throw. I can only pull off these moves seemingly by chance which is a shame because they are some of my favorite. Secondly, combat seems to be too difficult seeing as how every time I would attack the enemy would pull off a move that countered mine, knocked me to the ground and then proceeded to end the insane combo with a kick. My progress in the story has been halted by this seemingly until I grind long enough to acquire more powerful gear. Which brings me to my final point, progression. Progressing in this game is ridiculously slow, to a point where I cannot continue the story for days until I grind long enough to level up in order to gain access to a sword I had been holding onto for days prior. Please try to iron out at least the progression and move randomness and I should be able to beat your AI.
Great but don’t like new Update
by RedStoner500 on 2018/08/28 01:24
Let’s be honest, right when you start the game you start plain right so when you get a new weapon or ability or armor you need to upgrade it to a level to play a mission I know there’s a few players who want to play on impossible mode to get the weapon that you need to level up I mean seriously you have to make us wait until we get a certain amount of points to upgrade the weapons and armor we need 2nd is the boss you made them hard that only armor matters but not the weapons for example the posesed empor shadow ability is a spamming power right when you start he uses a shadow ability when your far away you can’t can’t touch him cause he has more far range shadow abilities you can hit him a few times but still he spams shadow power. 3rd legendary’s everyone wants legendary we can barley get any since we have to buy them or be very lucky in my opinion I think it’s just dume we need to spend money on gems that’s worth a lot of money and we can only buy one card maybe at least make a few chest that give you cards or weapons or maybe a match that you can earn shadow points
Cash Grab
by White.Privilege on 2018/01/04 02:42
I’m going to say it like it is: this game is a cash grab. The progression system is ridiculously broken, and it is impossible to make any progress past the first chapter. Skill does not matter, you are put up against enemies that will kill you with a single combo, while you do minuscule damage against them. In order to progress, you need to complete side missions, which appear only a few times a day, and you have to wait hours between them. In addition to side missions, you can do duels. Ranking up in duels is also impossible because it randomly puts you against opponents with far higher gear score, and you will not win. You take one step forward, three steps back. The only way to truly progress in this game is to spend large amounts of money on cards and crates. These cards and crates typically give you garbage gear that is far worse than what you already have, and there is no way to trade or sell gear. I am currently nearing the end of chapter 3, without spending a dime, and I’ve hit a wall. There is no progressing without wasting money on virtual currency, which I refuse to do. Tl;Dr: If you like wasting money, go ahead and get this game. If you like grinding and trying countless attempts hoping to kill an enemy, get this game. Otherwise, do not.
