Must try 5/5
This is a very exciting game! Easy to play, easy to understand! It's a blast try it it's great
Great game meet lots of people and have fun need money to advance but can advance without it
Don't play unless 1/5
Unless to can spend at least $300 a week to stay relevant in the game don't bother downloading. Yes it's a free to play game but without money you can't do much of anything but socialize.
Owned by greedy developers 1/5
By This is amazing!!!! c:
I've been playing for almost 2 years now. I have never seen it be like this before the people that develop this game constantly push updates. They do it so quickly that no one can keep up unless you're a big spender ($3,000) a month from one source I was told. But will they slow down? Heck no. They are nothing but greedy at this point. What's sadder is you can't talk like this on the app because they'll ban your account because why would they let their customers have a voice?? Im done with the money leeching company and the poor excuse of an app they call a game.
We are tired of the glitches, the overflowing upgrades, the spikes in prices and on and on... And we are mobilizing for the upcoming Strike, May 21st - June 19th. To shield and not buy, until MZ hears our concerns and begins to work with us. During the Strike, we will be sending out the same email and writing reviews, everyday and flooding mz with our concerns. A movement can make a huge financial impact that can improve the quality of the game for everyone.
Find another game! 1/5
Far too expensive. If you don't spend hundreds a month, you will never do anything but stay shielded, and farm tiles. They make it impossible to get gear, gems, rss, speeds, boost, and other required items without buying packs. Within the last week, players have had to adjust accounts multiple times and still burning for billions of troops. My advice is to not even download this game. Once you start playing and buying, it is very difficult to quit. MZ does not care about the customer. They only care about how much you spend.
Pay up, shield up, or give up. (MZ has you by the balls if you play this game.) 1/5
By Handy Heather
This is a warning about how money aggressive MZ (the game makers, Machine Zone, aka Money Zone or Money Zombies or Monkey Zone -for the constant monkey wrenches they throw at you called updates-) are. And how it's not really a game anymore, just that you are MZ's cash cow, and will milk you to dust, not just dry.
I am an r4 (a leader, one step down from the king of my alliance) in my alliance and all of our r4's are trying to find another game that our whole alliance can still play together that is free and has strategy at its heart. We are looking for a way to jump ship as an entire alliance. The players are great (I can even tolerate, to a degree, the butthole players this game has). The game now... not.
Bugs and glitches that have persisted for months aren't fixed. Some since -or before- I started to play, which has been 10-11 months now, and I play daily at hours at a time, but a vast majority of that time, I'm not actually "playing" I'm shielded.
Throughout the entire time I've been in the game maybe not even 5-10% I've been able to go without a shield, and I am a paying player too. Since I began I have probably spent $1,500, maybe more, and still the game has progressed around me so much that I can't trap or rally, or even fill rallies now. And I have multiple accounts in the game too. All of that money (except $125) has been on my main account. Not only has this game hurt me financially, but it has stolen my sleep too.
Server lag is terrible. Kingdom vs. kingdom and superwonder events are virtually unplayable due to poor performance.
Strategy no longer is a factor in the game, only that you have to spend to be able to play, or become a different version of FarmVille.
That you have to spend $100-$300 just to stay up to date, then in 3-7 days time (or less) have to spend that same amount (or more) just to stay current to be able to play.
That the inflation rate in the game is now so outrageous that the only way to actually play is to pay, either that or stay shielded 24/7 and become Farmer John. Or be like Sim City.
That veteran players get kicked in the teeth every time a new major update comes out, which is daily now, and about 9 months ago it was 2-4 weeks for major updates.
That new players can spend $100 and be almost to the same level as the veterans have strived for, for a year to get to, stings especially to the veterans.
Then new (-actually- all) players are on the hook to have continue to buy more, because you have invested in the game, and you want to have something come out of it. MZ has got you by the balls then (and I'm one of a few female players in this game too).
Pay up, shield up, or give up. Many great veteran players are giving up. Some are my friends in the game. I have only stayed as long as I have because I don't want to leave them behind. I am loyal to the bitter end for my alliance, but I'm not loyal to the game. Once we find a solution, we're jumping.
Game constantly kicks you out.
Every time a new event starts there is the random kick.
Kicked out of the Alliance City at random too. And often. And has been happening for almost a year (the entire duration of my game play).
That MZ only cares about your entire paycheck, and then all of your credit cards. That they are unfair to the small players (aka free players), who constantly get screwed out of the better things in the game, and can never go without a shield.
Just keeps getting better and better 5/5
Best game, of all time
This is what happened to me 3/5
It's good and all but how do I delete my acount I had a bug i nay game and it went crazy and could play game no more cause I didn't know how to delete my acount
Really lkilling time. It always ask you pay money, without pay there is nothing to do. 1/5
By Ritz Carltn
Wasted time wasted money.
Yea, it always ask you money.
If you don't pay, you can not upgrade your hero and kingdom.
And really good for killing time.
You exhaust time and money. For what?
Useless game 1/5
By Huh linking
It's absurdly,stupidly ridiculous. An absolute waste of time. This game is totally fraudulent and the textbook definition of FALSE ADVERTISING.
Greedy company 1/5
You can't progress without spending money (and lots of it). Customer service reply with standard scripts. No help at all.
If you're rich and don't mind spending $1000-$2000 monthly to be on top... this game is for you. Or if you don't mind being a bottom feeder with spending $0, this works as well.
MZ only cares about money 1/5
By X Perish X
Don't waste you time on this garbage.
Half a star 1/5
Wish I could give this game half a star or less because it certainly doesn't even deserve a single star. I've been playing for 3 years now and basically haven't been actively playing for 2 of them. Only reason I stick around is to talk to my alliance members. The game is ridiculous. The support team is awful and only sends automated replies. MZ is greedy beyond belief. There's a special place in hell for these people as this is the most addictive game but also the biggest waste of time and money. I hope you don't download it and make the same mistake I did. Screw MZ and all their products.
Good Game 4/5
Full of fun and War! Very addictive game.
Don't bother 1/5
By MZ suks ballz
If a game that has strategy, good graphics, and game performance is what you're after, look elsewhere. MZ rewards money. And ONLY money. There is no strategy. You will not be competitive without spending thousands of dollars. Don't even kid yourself or waste your time. Don't line their pockets with your money. FarmVille is more exciting.
Love this game
Just bent over all players 1/5
I've played gow for nearly 3 years. I've spent thousands to have an updated account. Mz just screwed over most of their players by releasing a ton of new features this week. Players aren't warned about new features, instead they log into an account to find the thousands they have spent to build an account is completely wiped out due to new attack stats. Mz has made this game a must spend game at any level. Don't down load this game. Zero customer service, everything with mz is about the nickel.
Money Grab 1/5
This game has new updates every single day. If you can afford to spend $100 a day this game is for you. Was top of the kingdom a week ago, didn't buy anything for a week and it would cost hundreds of dollars to just get back there. Not counting the new releases that come out as you are trying to catch up. Terrible game
I actually like it 5/5
been playing non stop almost lol
1 star is being generous 1/5
Started out fun cause you didn't need to spend money to play with some patience and a good alliance could help pass the time. But now it cost to much ($1000's) to just keep up with the never ending updates! DON'T EVEN BOTHER PLAYING! Spend your money on more important things cause this game is a MONEY PIT!!! Also the pictures they they show of the game in the app download section looks nothing like what you see in the game. Just the beginning of their deception.
DO NOT PLAY 2/5
By ':. April .:'
I love this game, but lately it has gotten out of control. Unless you have thousands of dollars to throw away, don't waste your time. This game USE to be amazing. But now it's just a place to blow money because new stuff comes out multiple times a week. MZ has gotten greedy!!
Best Game Ever 5/5
By Guy got
I really enjoy the action. The new features and research is phenomenal.
Game of War - Addicting 3/5
This game used to be fun. I have been at this game for over three years and every time I get to the point where I can compete this company adds crap which will put you back to the beginning. Recently three hits and lost 1.7 tril in power or in monetary words hundreds of dollars. Debating to walk away from it. Many have. Sad.
Not free anymore 1/5
By Jennifer P 1979
I have been playing for 3 years and in the last few months MZ has been dropping new releases almost on a daily basis. Our kvks are barely once a month. They tend to bring a new release prior to a kvk without the ability to utilize the release. I was a rally leader and have a trap. As of April 28, 2017, hero 81-85 was released along with 4 new gem sets, new core and a defense gear. All within days of each other. We barely had the chance to adjust with t6s and the new VIP and now pretty much everyone is quitting and soon I will be one of them. I just wish MZ would stop with the releases and bring back the weekly kvks and give everyone time to adjust. We don't need any more releases for at least a year.
Money Hungry 2/5
This game was fun. Very interactive and required some skill. It has now become whoever can spend the most money, has the most success. There are dead accounts all over the place and new "features" come out on a weekly basis that require purchasing. The only way to keep up is to continue to spend and spend. It is not worth it. You can buy a $70 video game from any store and spend months playing it and interacting with others instead of hundreds on this and still barely be competitive. 👎🏼
By Hydro Star188
Everyone is mean though
MZ is greedy 2/5
MZ is greedy unlike no other dev. If you want to play a different strategy that doesn't squeeze your wallet like a machine, try out Vainglory.
MZ Extremely Greedy!! 1/5
By Dr JT
If you value your financial well being, you will stay away from this game. Months ago, skill played a part whether you came out ahead. Now, it is who can spend money the most. Unless your long lost aunt left you a large inheritance, this game is not for you ;).
Too Much Money 2/5
Don't get started in this game. The spending will never end. It is a constant battle to get upgraded in order to be not left behind. It's sad... it would be a fun game if MZ wasn't so money hungry. Don't waste your time and money with this game. It will never stop
Excellent game 5/5
By Maitreya pyro
A little pricy if you want to reign supreme, but ask around for teaching and stay shielded at all times! The one problem with the game is that the things you spend the most money on is usually going to be high level troops. A simple mistake like forgetting your shield will expire, will cost you your hard earned troops.. and it'll cost even more money to get them back.. but if you don't mind, it's the funniest game in the world. I like most can barely afford to enjoy much of the game play, but it's still rather hypnotic in nature and there's always something you can do..
I have no idea where to start! 3/5
I like some aspects of the game but I'm at a loss on how to really engage in the "war" part of it. I guess my alliance isn't the best which is usually where it all starts.
LORD ROBERT DAVID UBALLE 5/5
LORD IS HERE LAWS OF THE LAND AND FREEDOM OF TRUE LOVE ANGEL TEAR DROP I NEED YOU WITH ME
This game is fun to play but it cost way to much to play
Good stuff 5/5
Pretty fun game.
This game would get 0 starts if I could give them 0 stars all they care about is making a game where they make money not for ppl to enjoy with new updates 3 times a week and old features lagging ad them not fixing it this game is just the base for rich ppl trying to feed a greedy company
IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING PLAYING, PLEASE READ: 1/5
I have been an advocate for this game for the past several months, until just recently. I can no longer support this game and what it has turned into, and I know many current players who feel very similarly. This game has reached a point where it is almost impossible to fight in any capacity unless you are around 8 trillion power or higher. The research and new materials have continued to increase the difficulty of playing with paying to Impossible with a capital 'I'.
If you value your money and don't have an extra $3,000 (and no, I am NOT kidding about that number) then please do not join without knowing what I have said above. The game is playable, but it will take you an impossibly long time to play. If you feel like dropping a few Grand on a game though? This is your bag- you'll be at the top in no time. Good luck.
Need for Speed 5/5
Addictive! Between GOW and mobile strike I end up playing GOW much more.
Machine Zone has ruined this game. Don't get it. You'll never catch up to the big spenders.
Great game 5/5
This is a great game, the only game I play anymore
Longest I ever played a Game 4/5
Costly, but addictive.
MZ is terrible 1/5
The game is fun but they shouldn't make you spend thousands just to keep up with every update. My advice is to stay away from this greedy and money hungry company.
Game of War. Fire age 1/5
This game used to be fun. I've been playing this game almost 3 yrs now & im more confused now than when I started. MZ has put this game so out of reach, it's impossible to grow enough to have a chance. It's a money Pitt. I know hundreds of people in the game & not one person is happy with the way MZ has treated it's players.
This game is a rip off 1/5
Yay another crappy violent rip off of clash of clans what's next game of war royals I mean really people who like this game probably don't know about clash of clans the developers were probably just like hey I have an idea kids love clash of clans how about we change 1 word and add in maybe a description hmm how about game of war yeah kids love war I DON'T CARE FOR YOUR CRAPPY RIP OFF OK JUST FRICKEN STOP GOD!!!!!!
If it could give zero stars I would 1/5
By Rights zeta drum funds
It's a rich mans game! Stay away!!! It is a fun game, but be prepared to spend thousands upon thousands to think your ahead only to be be behind 1 day later. 3-4 updates a week at the cost of $100-$300 each time just to keep up. The updates are making people leave the game for good. Machine Zone/Game of War care nothing about their plays, they only care about getting your $$$$!!!
Fun but just way too expensive 2/5
It's a fun game and all but you have to spend hundreds of dollars to keep up in it. I've spent very little and am in an alliance with some big spenders but I can't help them much unless I'm willing to fork up a few hundred bucks. One of my alliance members told me he spent over $500 on one research tree. I am having fun playing it but I can't recommend it to anyone I know since it's not worth the cash. Oh and the packs that you spend money on get more expensive the more of them you buy so the first is $5 and then it only offers $10 and $20 and then it keeps getting more expensive so also keep that in mind.
Edit: I caved and bought the $20 pack and now the game offers$50-$100 packs. That $20 pack did make me grow about 10 times in power but I'm still orders of magnitude below most other active players. There is a confusingly structured inferno event which makes it look like you can just buy $20 in gold and get the trillions in resources you need at the higher levels but you won't get anything until you spend at least $100. So the game is just getting more expensive. I can't recommend this game unless you're ok with spending thousands. Oh and the most common purchases list here in the App Store is definitely wrong because buying gold on its own doesn't do anything for you.
Fun but costly 4/5
I like the game and enjoy the other players I play with in my alliance, however the cost can be a bit prohibited. I don't mind spending $20 here and there to support the developers but I'm not laying out $100. It is possible to play without spending the $100 per pack but you have to wait for sales and you have to have a good alliance. It is slow going but it is still fun killing monsters and doing dungeons though lately getting keys for dungeon are only in packs which is annoying.
Completely Overpriced 1/5
This game is so spender driven that you spend hundreds of dollars only to be obsolete within HOURS of spending money so you're forced to shield or spend more money. Customer service is terrible. You as the consumer are blamed for MZ's mistakes. The lag is horrible. And now I think they're pushing for an exit because nobody is safe. It all burns. Worst business model I've ever seen!
