Great with room to improve. 4/5
Overall, I really enjoy the game. It’s rare to find a mobile game you can just play and advance in without running into a wall or having to pay money.
The only thing that really bothers me is matching against other players. If all my characters are ten levels higher and my power is 5,000 points higher, you’d think I’d be able to do well, right? Well, that’s rarely the case. That’s something they should address.
Otherwise, it’s a good experience.
Fun & Then Depressing... 1/5
This game is fun for a little while as they giveaway their Marque Characters but when it comes time when I really want to unlock a Legendary Character I have no choice but to Pay a lot of Money to quickly build up the other characters to unlock the Legendary Characters and that concept creation by the developers makes me Very Depressed Mickey :(
I highly recommend this game for all Star Wars fans! It is awesome! 5/5
It is awesome!!!!!!!👍✅👍
If I had to do it all over again? 3/5
I wouldn’t. This game was fun two years ago but now it only caters to those with money and a lot of it. If you are starting out in this game thinking you will win....NOT! The developers have made this game too technical to use and the ranking system is based on the toons you have. The more money you spend the higher your ranks get and then you can get the better rewards to get better characters. All of the sub games are set up the same way. If you have money then you will rank close to the top but for a new player that will never happen.
The developers constantly change the way the characters play about a month after they come out. The developers make a “game changing character” and every scrambles to spend money to get teams developed to obtain the new character and once every one nearly has that toon then the developer nerf the character. This is a classic bait and switch. This game is FULL OF BAIT AND SWITCH TACTICS. Save your money and save your personal time and your family and try a different game.
Perfect game for the true Star Wars fan. 5/5
By Ibby Fett
This game is the ideal combination of strategy and entertainment. So many characters to choose from and create your own unique roster. As a huge Bounty Hunter fan, SWGOH is a great chance to get to know these characters and take on those pesky Jedi, Sith, Ewoks, Empire, Rebels, etc. Bossk dominates for my favorite team!
Make things easier for F2P players 4/5
It has come to my attention that, though aspects of this game are pay to win, the game is very good in its content. I have noticed other Free to Play players absolutely STRUGGLE to increase a gear level from eight to nine without having to pay some serious cash for it. And the fact that Revan, although insanely powerful, needs to be more “obtainable” by those who wish to get him. I also would like to kindly suggest that you devs can perhaps make advancement of characters, gear tiers, and all of that a bit easier on the Free to Play side of the force. Other than that, keep up the good work!
Best Mobile Game ever 5/5
A must have for every RPG + Star Wars fan :)
Not much of a gamer and I have played every single day for the last 30 months!
Aaaaand quit... run away 1/5
Final update and quit.
The game is for suckers. If you like over paying and never getting ahead. You found a winner. After a year of trying i have quit. It never gets better. I promise you. Total money grab and un entertaining. The beginning was exciting cause you can actually do things and succeed! High levels are a grind fest and a struggle daily. And then the game just adjusts to that struggle and becomes harder. RUN AWAY!
Update: lvl 85 !
You will never get ahead. Drop rates on anything you need are abysmal at the top levels. Everything rises in level as you do. So you are always struggling. You will never be on top looking down. Its made to drag you along in the hopes you spend money. Money doesn't help either, slot machine purchases.. Parents keep your kids away from this stuff, it really is the worst thing for their minds and bodies. Seriously, it only gets worse, not easier. No excitement, no fun. Just grind and get meager rewards. You end up not even watching the game, just auto fighting. Yes....Its that boring. Like a chore not a game. Games should be fun, not completely monetized from one end to infinity. You will regret the time you wasted playing, i promise you..
Since they removed my other review I will post another.
I have played up to the max level for about a year. In that time all updates and changes made have only tilted the odds in their favor.
You will not do better at higher levels, it only gets harder. The game matches your level to the difficulty. So aside from unlocking characters you will always be swimming upstream. Its designed this way so that you can never win. This increases the chances you spend money. Which in my opinion is the only thing this company cares about.
Its repetitive to the point that it feels more like a chore then fun. Add in what I previously mentioned and you wonder why you waste your time.
IF you do end up spending money you will receive meager rewards as many purchases are based off a slot machine random reward. You will always receive the minimum. It never fails. That way they can get more money from you. Get it?
Trying to build a guild is next to impossible as there is no global chat room. You sit around waiting for people to join.
And as a kicker, they ask you if you want to turn on app notifications ten times a day while playing the app. No matter how many times you say no, the pop up stops your gameplay to ask you again. Over and over.
Just another thing that shows how little this company cares for you or your happiness. Its all about money.
Parents keep your kids away from this game.
Pay to Win ONLY 2/5
Mods 2.0! This has finally brought new life into the game for me. New shipments, new currency, tier 6 mods, mod slicing just to name a few of the great features recently added.
Update September 28, 2018
They just released an event to unlock the original trilogy Chewbacca! Too bad winning is entirely based on luck. Same as every other event added to this game. Be prepared to pay to win.
No surprise with this update really.
Company greed makes games terrible. This game is starting to go down hill. Especially with the release of Nest.
Update November 27, 2018
December 13, 2018
The Revan meta can’t end fast enough. Let’s make free to play players absolutely miserable.
Three years in a row provided garbage 1/5
Hey if you have a lot of money to waste then this is your game. Pay to be on top. And I do mean pay a lot to be on top. $20 for one piece of gear. The game is set up that you could spend a large amount of money to advance very little in the game to receive minimum rewards. But that is current way video game companies are doing business. Just say so no.
Mace Windu 3/5
I like the game. I'm just extremely disappointed in Mace Windu. He's arguably the number 1 duelist in the movies but he's total trash in the game. Rework the character for the sake of all Star Wars fans
This game 5/5
Basically a game that lets you practice to compartmentalize an alternative universe🙂🔥🌮🤙👽
Why have tenacity? 3/5
I think tenacity isn’t good enough. My bossk with his leader has 125% tenacity, but Palpatine with his leader has only about 95% potency. Even with my Bossk having 35% more tenacity he can’t resist anything from Palpatine. This should be changed.
Can't win 1/5
By MAJ MacReaper
You cannot win at anything on this game unless you are prepared to spend thousands of real dollars on it. The new grand arena is terrible and says it's supposed to match you to someone near your level which is a complete lie. I'm not doing grand arena anymore because it just puts you against someone who has paid money for the game and it's next to impossible to win because they always have the latest and greatest in new characters.
Fun but Devs are greedy 3/5
The only way to get ahead in this game is to spend a ton of $. Once a new character is released, it is ridiculously over powered and impossible to beat. Until it becomes F2P that is. The Devs then take all the power so that new toon can easily be defeated by the next one. They claim to care about the player’s experience but it’s simply not true. Only care about the players that spend $.
The best. 5/5
The best mobile game I’ve ever played. I’m playing a little over three years now and I enjoy it as much as day one!
Severe Disappointment in Customer Service 1/5
By Nick the Bartender
I am severely disappointed with customer service experience I have just received from EA and it’s support team for SWGOH. As someone who has played this game for almost 3 years, this most recent distaste from customer service has made me contemplate quitting the game. I filed a an issue (case #45359258) about lost content. Content which took a great deal of time and dedication to unlock. I filed this loss of content the moment it happened. Customer service first response from Fauve C. Via email stated that there was nothing they could do. I called to speak to someone directly to see if there was something they could do to compensate me for my time and efforts lost. I spoke with Shivam S. (case #45374716) and was left with the impression that I was going to be sent a link to explain my issue to another level of customer service. Instead I was sent a link to the EA forums for SWGOH. I am so upset and disappointed. To me it feels like a brush off to “voice my issue” into the forums because nothing will come of it from there. It’s a general forum where all players can openly talk and Developers post news and upcoming events. Utter disappointment. I am your client, your customer and a paying one at that.
Fun! Let me sell gear! 4/5
By Mad Man Mac
I love this game. Only reason for 4 stars not 5, is I should be able to sell gear. Who needs 2000 pieces of gear that you can’t give away or sell. My crew can only ask for so much each day. Seems like selling would be a good way to use the gear I earn. Can you switch up the shards you can earn from galaxy war? Keep up the good work Thanks!
Barscobe the Hammer
Not enough fun game play. Ea just keeps creating new characters with complicated mechanics that require more and more time to learn but rarely any new game play. Building characters to be strong enough to compete is very slow.
Prepare for grind 5/5
By bastilla shan
Very good game. Sometimes there is TOO much grind; gotta usher ppl toward the pay wall I know, but otherwise very fun
Don’t play if you don’t have money 1/5
By swgoh is broken
Paying money equals progression. Without it you will not progress in the game. Thank you for killing all fun to be had with this game.
I have never played such a game like this. This game has so many things that you can do. Best game ever.
Star Wars Entertainment 5/5
This game is fun and challenging as an individual and as a group when you contribute to guild event. The game is not overly time consuming but it is something you want to be involved with several times a day to advance and grow your teams.
New arena update not fun 1/5
This new arena update is not bringing anything new, just add one more thing to do, no new idea, no new game play, just boring...
Grand Arena 2/5
I have an issue with the matchups. My GP is over 3 million because I’ve been playing the game for over 4 years now. But it is spread out to multiple players evenly. I just got destroyed by a character who had same gp as me but stronger squads. I just feel there’s got to be a better way to match up arena battles.
How come when I got master plan from home one first the my enemy got it, how come they go first? They went so much times!
By Michael Graeff
Too expensive of packs
Best game ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5/5
By Oliver 31452562
This is a great game and the only game I play daily.
However, the characters should be easier to get and none (Fulcrum) Should only be available from shipments and resource cards! Yes I know that there was a Fulcrum Pack available a year and a half ago (I was there for it), but it should have repeated! And cost crystals! Not to mention, you should make the ghost and phantom II easier to get! Also, Mission Vao and Zaalbar only came out last month and I haven’t seen them anywhere except when Mission shows up in shipments! As a afterthought, you should add the younglings from clone wars Season 5, Episodes 6-9, Byph the Ithorian, Gungi the Wookie, Petro the Corellian, Katooni the Tholothian, Ganodi the Rodian, and Zatt the Nautolan. Thanks!😉
I like this game but have a wish list 4/5
I really enjoy the improvements over the years that I have played which has been close to 3 years. This game can be free to play (f2p) I have spent 10$ for gems that went super fast so I just stick to f2p and I have been able to do everything in time. There are events that if you get into a good guild and build your characters will get you a lot of free stuff which helps out a lot. I think the developers did a good job of -if you stick with the game you can get anything you want not right away but in time.
1. I think you should be able to either sell the gear you have 5000 of for money or a trade in system for gear you need.
2. I would like a day a year where the gear and/or ability materials like zetas can be striped with full reimbursement, or an event that you can put character in and get back all gear and materials down to a a character level (was 12 and get back to gear 7)
3. Characters that are not used ever should be refunded with what was put on them or gear and credits gems and mix the abilities from characters not used to ones that are used to make those iconic characters better and useful (ex: eth koth abilities to mace windu as mace did well In the clone wars agains droids and refund eth koth gear and materials or get gems, gear and credits for him, Others that could be merged and deleted gamorian guard, mob enforcer, underworld police, and Jedi guardian some others as well but the purpose is to make the game more fun by making the iconic characters better to play the game) same thing with ships condensed so the game is more focused-quality over quantity for both ships and characters
4. All 4 different energy is replenished faster,
5. More crystals given for everything
6. Some other way to use excess items of gear, experience modules, maybe use them as a way to trade in to get better gear and character shards.
Hope this helps and may the force be with you always!
AWESOME AND EASY
Going Downhill 1/5
My shard is from March 2016 Just a few things to note as I’ve watched the game progress over the past couple of years as a small/medium spender.
• Revan broke the game and killed my interest.
• Sith and Jedi have been fighting each other for the 2018 Meta Championships. I don’t see it ending in 2019.
• With every new character release comes a slew of overpriced digital packages. Why people spend money on a $70 Ewok bundle is beyond my comprehension. Ridiculous!!
• Bossk didn’t need to be nerfed. Same thing with Nest. If you’re only pleasing the Revan crowd then shame on you.
• Intentionally making a character overpowered to get people to spend money on it, only to nerf it several months later once it becomes part of the free to play market. Yeah, there are several players building a case against your company.
It’s EA, always a pay to play 1/5
It’s fun starting off but like ALL EA games you get to the point where you have to buy characters to continue playing
All about money! 3/5
This game is fun, but the people that run the game mostly want you to buy $89 & $99 packages which don’t really help improve your game very much. Trust me I was stupid enough to try it. Now I’m not having as much fun as I was before I got sucked in.
Recently started review 2/5
I’ve been playing about a month now. Starting out; you run out of things to do until you reach about lvl 50 because you can only gain about a lvl a day after lvl 20; sometimes two days because you only gain significant exp from daily quests. your lvl is set to daily limits. Kind of a weird system but you seem to be able to get all except maybe the top 5 to 10 characters with time. I will say though you have to get all of them 3 to 6 times to actually get them In a competitive state (they start at a tier and you have to upgrade that tier by getting them again). Being a newer player I will warn all players though; there new player guild system is horrible because it will constantly switch your guild to different ranked guilds and everything you did or contributed ( raid rank and progress contribution donation progress all will be wiped) leave there beginner guild as soon as posdibable you will loose weeks worth of progress and they will do nothing I have the customer service chat to prove it.

Jaxon didn’t like this game
New grand arena said error every time I beat a squad 3/5
By The word6
Opponent didn’t take down one squad. I took down all of his and got error after I killed the last toon every single time. Since you won’t take my suggestions maybe you will fix your bugged add on...
General Grievous Reowrk 5/5
In the Franchise General Grievous is one of the biggest threats in Star Wars but In SWGOH he’s one of the Famous Characters that doesn’t really have anything special.Grievous’s Offense should be a lot higher than it is now and he needs to apply debuffs that can’t be dispelled.Grievous is one of the many characters that need to be reworked.
Favorite Game Ever 5/5
I can’t stop playing this friggin’ game. I love it, but can’t quite understand why...awesome detail, choice graphics and game play, killer sound and a true Star Wars soul-count SWGOH among the greatest franchise games.
Good game but.... 2/5
Hard to rank up certain characters to get other ones definitely a pay for play
Revan v. Nest: Money Talks 1/5
By Austin Valentine
The latest nerf to Enfy’s Nest was the last straw. When the unit was released, the SWGOH community asked for her mechanics to be looked at *over and over* only to be told in no uncertain terms that she was working as intended. Now that she’s become F2P farmable and non-whale players have invested significant time and resources into farming her, she’s suddenly “bugged.” It’s impossible to not see this nerf as direct response to her making life harder for the whales that paid $300+ to buy their way to Jedi Knight Revan. That’s right, I didn’t mistype - no extra zeros - $300+ for most players to obtain him when his event came around.
I don’t trust the Devs judgment or the direction this game has gone. I don’t think you should either.
Wow just wow 5/5
Wow when I first played this game I was a little doubtful thinking it was not going to meet my expectations like games like force arena but this is great the way you collect characters is genius I have seen it in other games like Marval STRIKE Force but that game has to little characters but this I love how it has characters constantly added I think ships where on point hands down to the developers I will never stop playing
They need to make this an option 4/5
I love this game but I hate being forced to borrow a hero when I’m trying to do stuff. other than that this game is amazing!
Fun and ok to play 3/5
It’s Star Wars and glad their being in kotor character but dear sweet zombie Jesus is this game unbalanced and feels super broken.
By jfzogicpfoxufohhocjf phod
Tap a Star to rate
Keep away 1/5
Newcomers don’t bother.......game is all about exclusivity and if you want the content, you gotta open that wallet.
This game cured my depression. This game is so much fun definitely recommend. The fact that you can fight other players from across the globe and fight boss battles together is fabulous!
Crap update 1/5
This was a great app.. then the latest update and now it’s junk, I can’t load any quests, I’ve already uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times still nothing, gonna give it a couple more hours then it’s bye bye galaxy!!!!!
Beware the Nerf 3/5
I have played this game for just over a year. There is alot of pay to play players. CG continues to swing to favor the opinions of the pay to play players. If you farm a toon that impacts the pay to play toons you will have that pay to play toon nerfed. This is now a trend. Nest was the nerf today because she was effective against Revan. I am on my way out of the game. Many already have. I am sure many will leave after me. I suggest you never start playing. This is an addicting grind game where months of grinding can be taken from you overnight. Not worth the effort. Good luck!
