Easy to get bored 2/5
The game is well done with regard to programming and interfaces but the play action is just way way too slow to hold my interest for any period of time. Everything in the game is based collecting items to get items and the collection takes way too long. This would be okay but there just isn’t enough in the game to do while you wait. A real day with this game involves maybe 10-20 minutes total of game play broken up throughout the day and then having to wait hours to get resources to do something else. As an example consider battles. Sounds fun right? In this game a starting Middle Ages city might accumulate 32 military units with a battle usually consuming 8 units. A battle might take 1 minute to fight. So in about 5 minutes you have likely used all of your military units, cannot fight any longer, and will require about 3 hours per unit to create new ones. BUT to do this you are required to manually start the creation of each unit every 3 hours or production stops. So assuming you have multiple military buildings and you are attentive, you might get to start another round of 5 minute fighting in 12 to 24 hours. This theme is carried out though out the entire game....wait a really long time to get stuff and then burn through it in seconds and then go back to waiting hours or days. Welcome to video game gardening. Except with gardening you get sun and exercise.
Told me to open something I hadn’t unlocked and didn’t let me back to my other world

By brodie the cruel
Same thing as it is at the top
By Daddyyy Dave
I just started playing, it was going real good, admired the game, then i got back in and thought it was cool to start a new world, while in the beginning of tutorial it tells me to open map but i cant because i need research, i tried tapping all over screen but its just stuck there, i even tried closing and opening the game and it leads exactly where it was left off. Im very dissapointed, please fix.
Broken payment system! 2/5
The game is advertised everywhere as free, but it is actually quite expensive in real dollars to play. So when payments don’t work, like today, sorry guys but I’m outta here. Make me happy or say bye bye.
Good game 5/5

BEST GAME EVER 5/5
By epick 31425364
Forge of empires is perfect
Game won’t load 2/5
Since I did the update my game will not load. I’m going to uninstall it and reinstall the game hope this fixes the issue.
After I posted this I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and now it work just fine.
By Its me Teddy
Buying their packs at the prices they charge should be criminal. Think of the actual service they’re providing for a good with ZERO scarcity, seriously making up goods for an imaginary market where they charge $130 for 13k diamonds.... ??? Don’t give these people your money.
They have tons of bugs on the daily, lagging or lost code and it effects your gameplay. Unfortunately the greedy pigs at FoE’s don’t believe they should compensate their players for errors made due to bugs.
Seriously, plenty of other empire builders out there. Maybe they take better care of the people that keep the lights on for them.
Plundering feature - too much with a game with so many other great things 1/5
By Lux pro is a rip off
There was enough going on in the game that was creative and fun rather than have strong established players attack & plunder the new weaker players, stealing resources the weaker may have been waiting hours or a whole day for. It’s like getting bullied; getting resources stolen because you can’t defend yourself until you get strong enough to do it to others - FAIL.
How do u update the game and I lose all my data
Playing fun games 5/5
By funny sike
This game is great I wish it had more games like this one thank you for your game <3 you
Good game,but... 3/5
This game is so much fun and I was at the Stone Age I then did not play the game a month or two and when I got back on the game all of my progress was lost
I’m in a wonderful guild has helped me a lot!
Good game but the game has problems... 3/5
The first thing I have to say is that it takes time to load and sometimes it crashes or it’s just my iPad thats doing this game. The time to load and do stuff is a waste of time though but every thing else is fine.
Awesome game! 5/5
This game is so fun and you get to do so much! Everyone should have this game!
Out of date 1/5
You cannot turn a building to fit in an open area , constantly getting plundered by people who are far ahead so there is absolutely no way of defending. Everything in the game is money motivated, you constantly have to spend money.
Important to know—discipline and strategy 5/5
Perhaps one of the most important things to understand about this game is that it is a strategy game. It is NOT about building good looking cities or being a god figure (like many empire building games). This game is all about efficiency....of space, supplies, in game currencies, etc. It is a LONG play strategy game. Use of “decorations” or making your city pretty is actually discouraged in many ways. The first year of play can be rather drill like, the same thing over and over. This game can be played for free if you are playing the LONG game and intend to spend years on it. If you are into building “pretty” or attractive cities, this game is not for you. The biggest frustration for many players is that space is restricted...and there is a purpose to that. You have to be efficient and strategize the most efficient use of every commodity in this game. Two types of players are the most successful and happy with play....farmers/traders and fighters. If you don’t like battling, this game is probably not for you. It is difficult to get far in the game without at least some battling/fighting. Even those who are the “farmers/traders” have to do some fighting. Even battling requires strategy, efficient use of troops, and understanding of military commodities.
Finally, remembering that the game is not YOU playing against a computer/AI is important. You will be playing with and against others, so building defenses AND sticking to a time schedule (every 4 or 8, or 24 hours) is necessary. Most successful players set alarms. It is difficult to play this game on a whim or when you feel like it (oh, I have 10 min to kill, I’ll play). It takes 30-60 minutes daily of “on time” play to get ahead and succeed.
If you don’t like chess or Risk or those types of strategy, long time games, you will probably become frustrated or dislike this game. If, on the other hand, you enjoy thinking out every decision, thinking long-term (how will building this building affect me next year or next month when moving up an age) then this is the game for you. It is easy to play this game money free if you read the forums, learn, strategize, and play consistently (every day at the same time), you will succeed and love this game.
Once you get high enough level, resources are too hard to come by, battles are too difficult to win, and research is almost impossible without the resources to are trying really hard to acquire.
By battles too difficult, I mean it takes soooo long to build army just to lose everything in one battle.
Not very fun to play 1/5
I keep looking for a good city building game, something fun like The Simpsons: Tapped Out and I was hoping this was it. But it’s not. My main issues are that when you are just starting the game people who have been playing for years and are way ahead of you are still allowed to attack you and plunder your city. This should only be available for people at the same level as you otherwise there is nothing you can do about it. Your army is never going to beat theirs. You also get so little in terms of land that you have to keep deleting buildings so you can build something else when you need certain goods. And the goods buildings produce so little in such a long time that you spend days and days trying to get enough to do anything. I get that this is a long play game but it’s too long for me. Just not enough to do to keep me interested.
Update in response to developer: 1. Plundering would be fine if in the game it tells you about it, however, you only find out once someone does it and then you have to google what happened. 2. Even after googling Neighborhoods it is still unclear what these are, how to determine which one you are in or what the purpose is. 3. The game also doesn’t teach you about city defense, had to google that too. Too much stuff you have to google which is what makes it not fun. I never have to google how to do anything in Tapped Out, a far superior game. If you’re looking for a true city building game this is not it.
Love this game 2/5
Latest update has locked me out. App will no longer load. This upsets me as it’s at the tail end of the current event. With no ability to login, I’m seriously disappointed with the developers of this great app.
DONT BUY 1/5
Plan on spending hundreds on this game to use diamonds to expand space and buy buildings. There’s tons of websites detailing the scam with this game and the negative reviews they request to have deleted on the AppStore.
Coiner or victim 1/5
If you aren't a big time coiner, this game isn't for you. You either pay big bucks, or get non stopped robbed by those that do; and don't think you're going to stop them for free. Gets very frustrating. Read the 1 star reviews... They all say the same thing.
Great game and excellent service 5/5
Forge of empires is a great game. First, It’s not like so many other games where the game itself is free but you basically have to pay to win, you can easily play without spending any money. Second, they have events really often so you can never get bored which keeps the game fun. Lastly, the service is great. If you have a question and go to customer support, they get right on your question and it only takes a few hours for them to respond. Great game 👍
Great game if you have patience! 5/5
By Gamer D13579
First off I wanna say I love the game. I have read reviews saying that this is a “pay to win” game but it’s not. I haven’t spent a dime. This is a game that can take up to 5 years to get to the latest age. (SAAB) The ones that are complaining about spend real money are just not the people who cant play this type of game. Everything is meant to take time and make you work to be #1. I am in a good guild right now and just chatting with my fellow players is enough to entertain me as I’m progressing. Not to mention all the fun events that can give you amazing rewards if you complete them. Also some people have a problem with not enough space (most people do) but its supposed to be a challenge to play the game. This game has many more features that are fun like GE and GBG that can entertain you as you wait for BP’s and FP’s. All in all, I recommend this game to anyone who has patience. Forge on!!
By Elani 1971
Fun game if you don’t mind waiting months and years to have ENOUGH MONEY IN THE GAME to do anything once you’ve gotten past level 5..... so if you have nothing else to do... download this game and waste all your life waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting to get the billion trillion dollars OF THE MONEY IN THE GAME!!!
you need to build a shack after you get past level 5...
By lilburrito 2
This game is amazing I can do things that I like and battle people I already concurred a land
Too costly 1/5
Everything costs diamonds so of course you must buy the diamonds at far too much cost. The game costs WAY TOO MUCH.
Worst game ever created and the dev replies are all copy pasted 1/5
Lol you guys are just bots and not actual devs you have the same 6 lines it’s soooo ridiculous
Yes, get it 5/5
100% recommend it!

No longer loads. 3/5
With the new update, this app no longer loads on my iPad.
Update: After deleting the game and reinstalling it, things seem to be working. First time I had to do that after an update.
Battles are bugged 1/5
In this app, holding down on an enemy doesn’t show their attack range accurately. This can cause you to lose troops, and is pretty annoying.
On a computer this isn’t a problem.
Love FOE 5/5
By tyme in the garden
I have been playing this game or the last few years. I play this more than any other app on my tablet. Not always wild about some of the events. Some just seem time consuming and not worth the effort. Others I enjoy. I like the strategy the game takes to play and achieve higher levels. I also like having the option to play alone or be part of a guild/team. Forge on.
Money waster 1/5
The game has glitches in its daily challenges. Overall it’s a fun Game but unless you spend loads of money you won’t get far. Even when you spend money the trade off for what you get is close to nothing in th game kinda unfair.
