FIX YOUR SERVERS! 1/5
I’ve been playing for months now and every time a RvR event starts, the game gets so glitchy! It’s OBVIOUSLY not my internet connection that is the problem because I SHOULD be in the game right now, but I’m here posting this review instead! I tried for 15 minutes to get the app to work and when I FINALLY got in the game, 5 minutes AFTER I started chatting, an add for a pack popped up and froze my screen. I tried to exit the game and hit my home button and THIS STUPID GAME STOLE $99.00 FROM MY CHECKING ACCOUNT FOR A PACK THAT I CANT EVEN SEE!!! Total CRAP GAME! I’m DONE! 😡
By Small joy
I would love to give this a 5 star rating because I just can’t. The game itself it a blast to play but the headaches that come with having an account, not so much. 1st of all of you like glitches... not occasional glitches, but regular daily glitches; from monsters disappearing mid hit despite time left in them, all the way down to being kicked from game when an event rolls out or even the special event not happening then this is the game for you. 2nd this game can be expensive. The creators know just how to target your wallet and they don’t even try to hide they want your money. Packs start at 4.99 US and get progressively more expensive with each pack you buy. They don’t hide this game is made to take our money. So if you don’t mind seeing adds to spend 99.99$ US then this is the game for you. 3rd they way they handle harassment. They have strict player policies however when an incident of harassment occurs and you opt to report it be prepared to be disappointed. The will review your report look at details... but follow up is little more than a generic reply email. You will not know if the situation is remedied. So if you don’t mind trusting blindly in a team of developers that want your money first then this is a game for you. Despite my less than stellar review I love this game still. I love the excitement it brings, I love the challenge it has, and the community it brings from around the world. I will continue to play this game for as long as I can.
Full of bugs and ridiculously expensive 1/5
This game is full of bugs, it is constantly having connection issues; which probably due to the extreme amount of pop up advertising to try to get you to buy packs that half the time don’t include what is being advertised at 100 bucks a pop. Pretty sure if you play this and buy a pack you are funding terrorism
Harassment and TOS are not enforced 1/5
My realm has been nearly socially unplayable due to ONE girl playing 75 accounts, spewing threats and harassing other players. She has been reported multiple times by a majority of the realm and MZ does nothing. I guess and long as they are still leeching money from players it’s ok.
Fun & Addicting 4/5
This is a really good game, I got it a few days ago and I play it every single day! I highly recommend downloading it, it’s kinda pay-to-win but you can still be really good without making any purchases! I absolutely love it.
Pay to win... No... Pay to play 1/5
Open the app: pay to win offer.
Reply to a message and go back to the app: pay to win offer... If you like to multi-task this gets old pretty fast. And in a game in which you choose a few a tasks and then have to wait, you'll be multitasking a lot.
So not only you have to pay to win, you're reminded of it constantly.

I was working on a monster and it just disappeared. Please fix it.
Horrible Tech Support 1/5
Increased glitches for expensive game that charges exorbitant amount for packs and then does not resolve issues when you submit. I have 4 open tickets of which one has been resolved. No compensation to make up for issues or losses. Poor customer service. If I could give a negative star rating I would. Rolled back a functionality that had been usable since I started playing. Made it so previously purchased packs were useless. Fraudulent company that does not care about end users.
Horrendous Cash Grab, Should Be Illegal 1/5
By Captain Pangaea
You purchase a $5 starter pack and then you can’t get anything without spending $50-$100. Constantly getting destroyed by players who have clearly spent hundreds if not thousands on the game. Constantly receiving emails to receive additional materials if I click the attached link. Guess what? You get nothing. This game is an absolute joke, and Square Enix should be ashamed to have their name associated with this trash.
False Advertising: Not Tower Defense as Advertised 1/5
I downloaded this game because of the ads in another game. That ad promoted Final Fantasy as a tower defense game. It absolutely isn’t. I hate when games have ads that are misleading. No other app category does this. Thankfully, this game was free as I deleted it quickly.
I have been playing this game for a year now and invested a ton of money into it
Now the game developers are telling me that a bug ruined my account with the new monster farm update and I have lost thousands
They tried to compensate me with pennies of what I have into this game.
Telling me that it is the best they can do for their mistake
I am seriously mad that they don’t just reset my game to fix their mistakes
The developers here are not here to help
They just want your money and won’t even fix the problems that they create.
This is a horrible cash and greed game
Do not get this app !!!
Waste of time and money 1/5
By One of many sad users
If you don’t spend hundreds of dollars on booster packs you will not be able to do anything in this game. The players with deep pockets beat down the lower players making it impossible to move up. The lower level players end up playing defense in hopes of growing till they finally quit.
Money pit with terrible support 1/5
By Moat Monster
My advice after playing this game for about 8 months is don’t bother. While fun at first, and the interaction between players can be enjoyable at times, this game becomes a MASSIVE MONEY PIT, and it will take you between $2000-$3000 in pack purchases to stay remotely competitive. Even that will be short lived as the developers continue to add more levels, stronger troops, stronger monsters to train, and more powerful heroes. Do yourself a favor and find a game that’s worth it and not so focused on pay to win, or the packs don’t cost $100 each. This game will be dead in another six months.
An incredibly disappointing monotonous grinder 1/5
By Bucky Barnes WS
This game is not at all what the ads said it were. The ad is actually a mini game that you only get to play once every 24 hours. You're mostly building parts of your kingdom and waiting. Training armies and waiting. Growing crops and waiting. Mining and waiting. Everything is waiting. It's not as active as you would like. When you're under attack you're pretty much just waiting for it to happen. You can't fight back Except with whatever troops and traps you have at the time. And even then you don't get to see any action. You're either on fire or you survived. The monsters are one slow march towards that one slow march back. Everything seems to be a lot of old by paying. You can do a lot for free but you were definitely aware of what you're missing if you're not paying to play.
Really like the game 3/5
I really like the game but I don’t think it’s cool that y’all send out all the 4.99 deals then as soon as you buy one you can’t get those deals any more. I don’t often buy bonuses because I do t really have the money for it but when I can I do. Now it’s 19.99 for any “deal” that’s cool to those ppl that can’t buy higher packages. Y’all should still send out the 4.99 deals! But y’all are money hungry! Not cool man!
Could be good but too many ads and bugs 1/5
The game could be great. I don't usually put money into games, but I started to enjoy this one, and $5 isn't too much money. But then you couldn't do anything without logging in to another pushy ad for money... $20 now. But I'm still enjoying the game, so I buy it... And now I can't use an item I bought because it's bugged and the game developers do not respond to tickets.
Oh, the next tier after $20 is $100, occasionally you might find a "sale" for $50, but always a nag screen to buy something else. And now the nag screen stays up for several seconds and you cam not tap out until it does.
Finally, the player base is typical of internet games... Vulgarity and empty threats, juvenile teenager style behavior. There are chat filters which help with the profanity but you can't block out the spamming threats and public airing of dirty laundry.
I'll take my money elsewhere. Uninstalling.
Don’t play this game 1/5
I’ll be the first to admit this game can be fun. Sadly, you’ll never make any progress past level 30 without paying through the nose. You’ll only have access to the very base game if you’re not willing to pay $100 US per pack and one pack isn’t enough to even make a dent in progression. There are other players who pay thousands of dollars to get the highest levels, the best additions, the best gear and these players will trample you every chance they get. They’ve made it so you have to pay even to survive in this game. I’m ashamed in myself for spending a dime on this. My advice. Forget about this mobile app. Wait for steam summer sale and get the real FFXV game. That one is a decent play. Frankly I’m disgusted with SquareEnix for letting these chumps use their brand.
This app cannot figure out sleep! 1/5
This poor title has a number of issues related to playability, but the most obvious is its revolting inability to properly load data when started or awoken. Doubled app loading times result. Avoid until fixed!
Worst game ever 1/5
Don’t give EPIC your money the game is all pay to win!!! Things don’t work you will be bullied all day long. The requirements to build make no sense 365 days for one building unless I spend 100.00 a pack and the pack contain tons of useless item!!!
I tried to stay for friends because you will meet nice people who share and gift you things in a guild a good one. But it’s corny people don’t war it’s just an elitist game so they can virtually stomp on the little guy too.
And they are putting reviews on here to make it look good the game is empty and they know it.
What is this? 1/5
The playable ad is a tower defense game. The actual game is an idle upgrade-these-buildings nonsense that just has me tapping on things mindlessly. Deleting.
Fun game great friends buggy mess 2/5
By social gamer 0913
Fun game concept
Pay money or get farmed
Very repetitive, please add different events and new graphics.
Buggy as heck! Weekly, daily bugs with events or gameplay. They are making boat loads of money but it feels like none of it is going back into the game to improve the gamer experience.
A Horribly Balanced Game 1/5
Don’t waste your time with this piece of crap, the developers haven’t even tried to fairly balance how high-level empires raid low-level empires all the time. All it takes is one player level 20+ in order to wipe out an entire guild full of players level 19 and under, and they can’t even retaliate. Of course you can always pay your way into the top, but after you’ve spent the first $5 they only offer you $20 “deals”, and I assume the price grows with each purchase to continue wringing out your wallet. The devs don’t care about this game or the people playing, so my advice is to just stay away.
Terrific Gameplay. Shameful Marketing 1/5
By pack Insanity
Update: Still no response from developers after 5 days.
Ripped off for 100.00! Developers are refusing to respond. The pack I purchased did not contain all items advertised! Address my issue and I will add back stars.
This game is terrific when it is functioning correctly. Occasionally, resources needed to progress in the game disappear. I have contacted customer support several times, but the generally tell me very politely that they cannot help. This is especially disappointing, because the resources are extremely expensive to purchase. You can collect resources without spending on packs, but the rate of progress is impossibly slow. A word on the in app purchases. They are pretty shameful. The first purchase is 5.00. After that, 20.00. After that 50.00... There should be some kind of middle ground.
Final fantasy xv 1/5
In the beginning of playing this game, it was about how much you spend to stay near the top and compete. Now, you cannot spend enough to compete. There are players that spent 10s of thousands of dollars. During the realm vs realm events, those players will zero you in one or two hits. You loose your hero for a couple days and thus, cannot really play. Customer service is an automated system that does not resolve any issues not address the problem. We were involved in a realm merge and those that fit moved lost expansion tiles, which you actually have to pay for. Epic did nothing to correct the problem. My best suggestion to anyone that is looking for a war game, look at some other place.
I desperately need a refund.
This game is nothing as what I had expected it of being. I stuck with it and was told by other players that it becomes more fun with purchases, so I bought some. Ultimately, it did nothing grand. I made some in-game purchases and what I had bought became useless on the same day of the purchase (literal scam). Not to mention the fact that there was slight false advertisement in one in-game item that said it would double one of the in-game currencies “on everything” in which it meant every method of receiving that currency, yet it does not work that way at all.
Sorry, I am complaining too much. If you are rich and can make $100 purchases daily, then go ahead and play this game. I for one am an unemployed student who was cheated into making purchases using my financial aid. I need this money to live right now, so please give me a refund, please.
Do yourself a favor.....just move on 1/5
By Pew pew pew pew pew
Pay to play game and fairly unstable app. I would recommend you just move on and find a better game. Everything about this game is geared to get you to spend hundreds if not thousands to play. The Final Fantasy franchise should feel ashamed that they sold out their reputation to make a few buck.
Devs are con artists 1/5
I thought it was getting better! They make you think that they help you out a little bit, then they go and make the game 10X harder. Which turns the help they give you in to jack ****. They Make boss events impossible. Then take away the only event that actually brings the whole guild together (sanctum event). If you ain’t buying 5-10 ($99 packs) per event, you can’t even play!!
GET WITH THE MODERN DAY, DEVELOPER!!! 3/5
(Spoiler alert!) Okay, I’ll try not to hate on this game for long. This game is actually pretty fun. You’ve got random box events, monsters to fight, and the Realm vs Realm events that occur every two weeks. What more could you want?
Well, play the game until a certain level, and the problems start to become obvious. First off, there’s massive catering to the players that have “phat cash.” You get pop ups that say that you should buy the latest packs, as well as the “get it before it’s gone” pop ups. And a lot of the buildings you NEED in the mid-to-late game can only be accessed if you PAY TO PLAY.
Developer, please. If you want to make a good game, at least make it enjoyable in the early and mid game. Don’t pester us with ads that basically say that “you have to pay to play.” All that will accomplish is turning people away. If you can’t change this game’s catering, then you might as well discontinue this game, because I’m beginning to want to stop playing it.
But I won’t. I’ll continue playing. The community within the game is very kind, and certain realms treat you as family. Bear in mind that this is the ONLY reason I’m still playing the game. If you want to play a fun game without being pestered by ads, this game isn’t for you. If you’re a die-hard Final Fantasy fan, I can see you getting this. If you’re a casual player and you join for the interaction with other players, then this game is for you.
Now if you excuse me, I’ve got some research to finish.
NXGemini - .Alt guild, Starlight Arena
This game is crap! It's a scheme to scam players out of your money! 1/5
By "GIV ME MY MONEY BACK SCAMMER
On top of having to stomach this horrific game, it's "lame" design, "lame" graphics- I picked up "my phone" to make a call the first thing on my phone's screens was this game so I pressed my home screen to get to my home screen,and voila! I just paid some unknown amount of money to some piece crap game. That I was only stomaching and playing to get special reward in from a real game. They spammed the game so hard core with purchase adds "it's truely ridiculous!" I was furious when I saw a charge I was waiting for that confirmation email for hours? It's so bad I couldn't even get to my home screen. So I went straight to email for hour and hours, but they did not send the confirmation of payment. When they did I disputed and they refused 3 times to refund my money- because they "had already disbursed the package" which just so happend to be an entire day before they send the confirmation email if payment email. So they still refuse to refund my money and I am escalating the issue. I am "SICK!!!" of people trying to take advantage of you. Aren't you? And this game is even worth 99cents.
Pay to win? How about no. 1/5
By Fix yo game bruh
You need to spend money to be good at this game. Pathetic, greedy individuals. Sad excuse for entertainment.
In app spending is required 1/5
I’m fine with spending $10, maybe even $20 dollars on a pack for this game but I have to spend $100 now to unlock any characters, level certain buildings, or even not have a an upgrade take a week or longer. Ridiculous and have to quit because it’s made to just take your money rather then have you enjoy it.
I got perm banned for no reason 3/5
This guy in chat kept saying he was going to report me because I didn’t stop talking in the chat with my friends when he was there he said he was going to to ban me for my age also because I made a joke that I was 10 and he took a screen shot but I’m not ten I’m 17 like just why
No Realm change 1/5
Not having the ability to change realms is a MAJOR flaw in the design of this game. What's the point of meeting/making new friends if have to start all over just to play with them?
The worst pay to play game! 1/5
Unbalanced, lacking a storyline, unfair due to high levels characters being able to wipe out lower levels. After level 10 the game goes downhill fast! Stay away...
😠😠😠 STOP THE ADS ABOUT YOUR APP WE GET IT 1/5
By Cousin world
App is just like tons of other games with battles guilds and dragons. I will never download the app because of all the stupid interactive ads about it.
Great Game with One Tragic Flaw 3/5
By Cid Chez
The only reason this is 3 stars instead of 5 stars is because there is no game balancing to help free to play gamers when up against pay to play gamers. If you are not prepared to shell out hundreds to thousands of dollars per week to buy packs, you will NEVER be able to stand a chance against the players who do. Other than that, the game mechanics are great, the Final Fantasy references and art are fantastic, the social aspect is lively, and the game is very fun and addicting. If they could find a way to add balance so the free players can survive and not lose all if their work in one hit from a paying player, or make the packs cheaper, I would change this to 5 stars.
Save your time and money 1/5
Misleading ads and boring game.
Not ready for prime time 2/5
By Evolution is a fraud
Interesting game, but the developers obviously don’t care much about the players, don’t play the game themselves, and don’t seem to really care about anything except making as much money as they can. The basic premise is building an empire by attacking monsters, gathering resources and attacking enemies. The Guild structure (which is really an alliance), is interesting but limited in capability as all you can do is rally troops and share certain basic resources. If you are willing to spend a lot of money, you can basically crush most other opponents except other big spenders. In app purchases go from $5 to $20 to $100 and everything after that is $100. Apparently the developers have never taken Economics 101. The game interface is not well thought out and could benefit greatly from the perspectives of a computer scientist and an industrial engineer. Sometimes you get the info you need like march times to send your troops to attack, but other times the info you need is just not available. There are hints in the game for what to build next to advance your empire, but they are not very helpful. If you happen to land in a good guild you can make progress; otherwise forget it.
Too many ads 1/5
You know I played “Brain Wars” for 10 minuets and I saw this Game’s ad at least 6 times! That compelled me to give you a one star ⭐️ review. It might teach you a lesson. I hate your game and your company because of those ridiculous continuing unacceptable ads that I see of it in other games. Stop it!
Don’t Buy Packs 1/5
This game is fun but do not buy packs, as soon as you buy a pack they make the game harder for you to advance. Also once you buy a pack, they try to sell you better and better packs to get you to spend more money. This game also has charged me for multiple packs I didn’t purchase.
No solution to issues 1/5
We merged after RvR event without warning a couple weeks ago and nothing has happened to fix problems as a result of the merge. So very disgusted to see new items when the existing things are missing or don’t function properly.
This game is the definition of pay to play 2/5
Once you reach a certain level, this game become almost impossible to continue to level up on without the purchasing of materials and pack.
Events as of late have focused on the players ability to pay, rather than play.
At $100 a crack for game packs, those without unlimited funds will find themselves terrorized by players who have dropped thousands of dollars on the game. (One player in the realm I play I has claimed to have dropped over $15,000 on this game)
New features of the game, like certain buildings, chests, and upgrades, require you to purchase the unlocks or upgrades.
Could be more fun if the developers would focus less on money and more on game play.
Too many glitches and problems for what it costs to play 1/5
By Raging Ravus
This game is nearly impossible to play for free and be able to compete against players that spend. I am one of the players who has spent a lot of money. I have played this game for over a year, and there has always been minor errors and glitches in the game. Three weeks ago, our realm was forced to merge with another realm of players. Since then, MZ has been unable to let me and other players use their expansion building content that we purchased for hundreds of dollars in multiple pack offers. We have been robbed of in-game boosts, important rare resources produced by these expansion buildings, and thousands of real world money spent for these expansions. After weeks of unanswered messages to customer support, nothing has been done to fix this problem. The developers continue to add new expansion content that requires more money to unlock, but yet they cannot apparently take any time to figure out why we cannot delete and rebuild our previously purchased expansion building content. The developers of this game and its customer support only care about lining their pockets with people’s money. They don’t care much for the actual gameplay or their customers playing the game.
SimCity 1989 makes this game look like a joke. 1/5
If I were to load SimCity (1989) on my computer and play it for a DAY, I would have more fun than I have had for the three weeks I played this game. Absolutely retchid immersion value. It’s almost ALL a timer game. It stacks for years of playtime, and every time I log in it keeps trying to get me to pay with a full screen ad I have to dismiss. And for what? To pay for some timers to go away...? Why would I do that... the timers appear to be the ONLY ‘action’ the game gets besides a ONE SLASH OF THE SWORD PER DAY ‘training center’. I’m sure it’s one of those things like the movie that starts slow and all but I have it three weeks of constant play. It went nowhere. Very disappointed. However - only one other game out of 12 I’ve played of final fantasy games that I dislike, so it’s expected that this happens. *shrugs*
Don’t pay then don’t play 1/5
You have to spend at least $1k to survive this game. Most strong players spend at least $10k. Go figure!!
Same as most reviews... 2/5
Making friends and growing together to build your empire is good at first but as you progress to higher levels it gets too time consuming. Also if you want to be serious in this game you need to open up that wallet. It’s the only way to progress. If you are not going to spend you will end up being cattle for slaughter. Higher level players who spend will capture your hero and banish it for boosts. It’s a pay to play game if you want to beat other players.
I’m not enjoying this game 1/5
In this game cyber bullying is the rule of the big players against the little one. Is a credit card game, is too expensive if you can reach the power to play normal.
