This game introduces a new concept into the gaming world; the MACRO-transaction. You’ve heard of the micro transaction in games where you can spend a few dollars to buy in game items to give you an advantage? Well in this game they introduce a new character every weekend that you cannot do special weekend events without, and they average $200-300 US each!
Worse still, these characters are not guaranteed, you pay real world money to roll an RNG for A CHANCE at the character, and then spend $150 more to power it up to be relevant in the weekend event. After the weekend is over, the character is essentially worthless.
Seriously, don’t play a game that costs $1,000 a month to be competitive in! I say this for your own good; that’s almost a mortgage payment! You can buy all the brand new, full version games at $60US you could ever play in a month for less than that, why would you waste so much on a single mobile game?
Having said that, I will give some specific feedback for those who have not moved on to another game by the time they made it this far into the review.
-large set of playable characters
-fun for a while
-insanely expensive! Didn’t you read what I put above?
-expensive characters are regularly nerfed to be worthless, tying to force you to buy the new one every week. Would you pay $300 for a toy you could only play with for 3-4 days?
-takes months to grind a worthwhile set of characters
-game is reworked on a periodicity equal to the time it takes to make a good set in ways that make the character set you worked on for months useless
Ultimately, the game is fun for a little while, but the greed of the marketing behind the game is such a turn off that the fun is quickly replaced by irritation at the fact that you cannot do anything useful without spending more than a person should EVER spend on any game.
Seriously, save your money, spend it on your family or girlfriend or use it to go on dates and get a girlfriend or something. Take a nice vacation every month with all that $$. Start a retirement account so you can retire early. Shoot, you could develop a substance abuse addiction (but please follow your local laws) for what this game wants you to spend, even that would be more fun.
But please, don’t spend this kind of money on a game. For yourself, for your future, and so game development people will stop the wanton greed they think they can get away with here. Do the smart thing, pick a different game!
Trust me- I’m a PhD scientist/engineer and I refuse to afford this game- people pay me good money for my opinions, and you just got one for free. I hope you will use it wisely.
Have a great day!
