Great game w/ a small problem that needs fixed
One thing i challenge myself to is to see how many games in a row that I can win. My record is 23 but should be 26 because sometimes, for no reason on my end, I will get disconnected from the game. It will say that I lost my internet connection but that is not so. My internet connection was fine. This has happened many times and is very, very aggravating! No fun to pay 6,000 dollars to play, be killing my opponent and then that happens and even worse is to lose a winning streak that should have gone even higher! From there, the game is super fun, very challenging and very addictive. This is now my favorite game but THEY NEED TO FIX THAT FLAW IN THEIR PROGRAMMING! I would give it 5 Stars but cannot with that flaw. I want to give it 4.5 Stars but there is no 4.5 so i have to give it 4 Stars.
Love this game very addictive even tho is mostly about shooting the ball in the basket, one thing I don't like is that if another player has a better upgraded ball they have more chances on scoring, if this player has been playing for a while, or else it won't matter. The other thing would be nice to be easy to obtain are the skill points upgrades, but I guess it's good to get one skill point here and there inside the bags, not really much to change on thus game this are my preferences and other might like what I don't, so give it a shot, the other thing is the delay when playing attack or defender, there is a delayed when you get block, I had gotten block when my ball is right over the basket, this is a bug that really needs to be fix, is a timed game so getting a block when the ball is over the basket is either a glitch or slow connection, the other thing why is so expensive to get gold bars? It would be nice if offer specials or daily bars or arcade token, for a price of course, but anyways that'd my review, play the game and see for yourself, you won't be disappointed
The wrong things about basketball stars😡
I like the game but one time I was winning by 3 points and then the buzzer rang and I was so happy that I had one but then my opponent made a last minute shot(which should not be allowed)and then they won. That's what gets me mad about this game. It kinda makes me wanna delete it. And then another time I had got a token so I could play the mini games and my wifi wasn't that good at the moment and then it took me to my home screen and I got back on the game and my token was gone! AND I WAS ALREADY PLAYING THE GAME I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GAME!!!!!! AND IT SAID CHECKING WIFI CONNECTION AND IT LOGGED ME OFF😭and one time I got my phone tooken away and I got back on the game and it stared my character over! I didn't have no money and my character was a man(and I'm a girl)🙄but over all the game is good and I really enjoy it👍🏼but those are the things you guys need to fix. Ooooh and also instead of giving 500 dollars for free cash you should give 5000😛💸more people would download your game if you did that. And you should definitely give free matches for the career game😫thank you
I honestly been playing this game since release it it was amazing yeah it had a lot of bugs but it was still fun what I dislike now is how you can’t purchase basketballs with the money you make from playing against other players and in order to get vip bags etc you have to have gold and I’m not gonna continue purchasing gold just for a ball! At the end of the day this game is amazing it’s just now having money is useless you can’t nothing but upgrade a ball and the chances of getting a basketball is nearly impossible honestly I just think they should go back to buying basketballs with cash again it would make more sense then having to buy gold and have no chance in even grabbing a ball. This game would honestly be better if they honestly listen to their players but just dislike so much that I sit there playing for hours playing Tokyo just to remind my self that cash in this game is useless would be better if you can buy the ball with cash and still upgrade it with cash this game just has been going down hill for years.
Fun and addictive game but needs improvement
This game is great and really fun overall. It’s addictive and enjoyable. However, one issue it has is whenever there’s a connection issue either from me or the other player, the game just stops and it counts as a loss for me. Even when most of the time it’s not my fault and my connection is fine. Its the game’s own connection issue, not mine. Or its the other player’s connection issue, that somehow is my fault. And for whatever reason it counts as two losses rather than one. That makes no sense at all. It shouldn’t count as a loss at all, and should just be considered a no contest or the match should be cancelled with no winners or losers. Especially when its not my fault, most of the time. Please make an update and fix this issue because it really pisses me off and I doubt I’m the only one who has this issue. Its an annoying issue that happens one too many times and shouldn’t be a problem in the first place.
Fun but glitchy
The game is very fun and I used to play it a lot, but there is a really annoying glitch, the clothes I worked hard for and won and played a lot for and were very cool just go away. It used to happen shortly then I get it back by getting off the game, but now I only have the same shirts and shorts you start us out with, so please change that, besides that I probably would give it 5 stars. But also try to even out the levels, the last person I played against was a level 60, I'm a level 11. And my brother and I used to play it together we used to say,"oh no, hacker" when we noticed something strange, until I realized it happens with almost everyone, like teleporting, throwing the ball through my arms, and blocking the ball when it's right over the hoop(and sometimes in the hoop) it's very frustrating. I don't want to make this too long but please also listen to other people, there are more glitches. We should also have more matches in career, but if you guys can't do all this it's okay, at least try please
Good game but needs fixed
This game is really good, when I first got it I was super into it and loving it, but now just like most the other people writing reviews I’m starting to experience a lot of bugs and glitches in 1v1 where the ball is way passed the defender or already through their hands and they somehow miraculously get up in time and block it. It’s super annoying and almost made me sock my phone or delete the game several times. And when the game lags for a minute n gets stuck mid game then next thing you know the person is way gone and already scored and just outright cheats you. Also the gold should be more easily accessible like maybe sometimes getting it in bags or making cash more useful maybe? There’s many other things I could go on and complain about but I don’t want be that person, these are the main issues at the moment that need attention and fixing. Other than that it’s a good game and I’d have no problems spending money and time on it if I seen some good changes. Thank you
Great game but...
This was a really great game when I first started out but after some time and climbing the ranks, I started to see some "shifty" play. First off the games become predictable meaning you already know you will lose before the first basket is shot. I can usually tell what players are cpu generated by the mismatch outfits, emotes, or game level with tourney wins🤔. Another giveaway is when you are are at a very high level say 75 and above, playing cpu players becomes an unfair challenge. For example, all your shots are perfect and you are keeping inline with challenge until you make a bonus shot which of course will put you ahead say between 5-12 points and all of a sudden you will have "connection issues" which is a tactic the game uses to slow you down. That 5 or 6 seconds you are waiting to be "connected" back, the other player has caught up plus gets a blue bonus ball while on fire. It's happened quite a few times that also makes the game predictable for you to lose. This happens a lot when you are playing for higher amounts. The company will deny this up and saying it is a bug they are "working" on which is complete bs. Best way to have fun with this game is to get cheat codes and give the company a run for their money. One cheat deserves another and it has been great😈.
Glitches R Us
The farther my player gets advanced, the worst this game gets. My opponent just scores a basket, then next thing you know they steal it and I miss taking a turn. Happens all the time now. How bout the player getting a block on you when the ball has either gone through the basket or it’s about to go in. Isn’t that goaltending? Although I have never seen anyone in history jump straight up in front of you and manage to block the ball as it is going in the basket.....that’s incredible. Constant problems with the game slowing down in the middle of the game and your opponent has either scored or stole the ball from you.....and your like how is that possible.....we are both experiencing the same problem right....unless they are creating the problem and cheating. The other issue is that I don’t rarely play the shooting contest aspect as it seems no matter who I play and what level they are at, they get more points. Doesn’t matter the ball I use and I don’t miss a shot and some dude is scoring 120 points and I didn’t even hit 100? Doesn’t seem to be to realistic to me. Especially when you hit all your shots and even get the backboard bonuses. I like competition but getting real tired of losing due to glitches and not because I sucked.
The game is fun and great but there are some serious issues. One there isn’t a lot of places to bet and win money because once you get to betting 100,000 in Central Park, there is only two other places which are Tokyo and Dubai which are limited players playing there (6 mostly) and are players of the very best in which makes you not even wanna play there because you know your gonna lose unless you spend all of your time playing as best as you can in Central Park and then play a level 90+ who has a bunch of experience and give it your best shot. There should be more match making players whin the league and level and more arenas in which we can play in and enjoy. And not have the best hog Dubai and Tokyo. Also, I’m not the best at the game but I average 90+ a game when I first started but I could never play in Dubai or Tokyo because there was always an unfair advantage to time of their shots and made me take less shots on purpose. This is a big problem which makes me want to be a great player and play in Dubai and Tokyo expect when it’s a level 20,30,40,50,60 to a level 90+, it’s really not fun and competitive but just a way for me to delate the game.
I appreciate the calmness and serenity that this game gives. Especially when you have a match under control. I remember mastering my shooting accuracy. However, I was horrible at shooting off the back board at one time. I said to myself that I have to master shooting off the back board as well. In time I did master it by means of the practice mode. I can truly say that this game is inspirational. Sadly the abrupt disconnection of my matches is a HUGE issue to me. I’ve genuinely defeated players that are over level 100 in the last level “Tokyo” and just other players that are at a higher level than I am. I’ve noticed that when I’m defeating my higher level opponents that my match just ends abruptly. Due to this happening many times, it leads me to believe that the game monitors are purposely doing this. I could be wrong, but it’s a logical conclusion based on it always happening when I’m winning. To the Creators of the game Thank You.🙏🏿 I’ve gotten into arguments in the past about how long I play this game, 😅 but it creates a disdain whenever I experience the abrupt ends while I’m winning. Hopefully this can be fixed and won’t fall on blind eyes. PLEASE FIX THIS!
I don’t really know about this game. Sometimes I like it but mostly it frustrates the s$&T out of me. So many times in the middle of a game when I’m winning or about to win the game shut down. And I lose the money that I’ve invested in the match. The game has many glitches where it slows down at times when it shouldn’t. It’s just not smooth enough in the movements..I.e. the players ball handling and shooting motions are jerky and smooth. And it really seems like the game cheats me because really low ranked players are able to put up unbelievable scores when playing me when I Up the dollar amount that I’m betting. I am definitely accusing you guys of cheating and weighing the game in your favor in some regard. I would not doubt that you create an algorithm in order to draw people into that they spend more money on this game that’s what you companies are designed for so that people can become addicted to these games so you can make more money off of them. It’s really shady. I really like this game and I wish that you would improve functionality and at least give the people who spend money on the game A fair shot at beating the game.
Sadly not getting any better
I have a real love hate relationship with this game. I enjoy playing but can’t stand all the glitches and hacks. I mostly play the shooting race part because the one on one was tooooooo rigged. I mean going left and the opponent goes right then jumps and still has time to land move left and block you? Or watching the ball about to drop after a nice fake then they jump and somehow bloke it? The shooting one is no better. Balls flying over the backboard and they get points or my favorite is they get 3 bonus balls (all while on fire) when I get 1 as the second ball and can only get 2 extra points to their 12. Oh and my favorite...the backboard is not even showing the bonus but somehow 3 times in a game they somehow “guess” the exact time it will pop up...maybe once but 3-4 times come on (fixed). At the end your a split second ahead of the opponent and sink it and then he does and you try for another shot but time runs out and you think you won but then out of nowhere a ball comes flying into the screen and they “Win.” Now I played for hours one week and finished 1st in my group and then on Monday I got no gold reward and you click on the last week summary and it says “you didn’t play last week!” I wish I could give this game a negative review but I guess we wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings so they get a 1. Enjoy the game if you have patience because you will get SCREWED.
I played this game before, then I got a new phone and I didn’t want to make a Facebook account to pair (because like, who uses facebook anymore), so I basically started all over again. It is very frustrating to shoot with starting balls. I could get the bar right at the white line and still it is probably a 25% or less chance shot. And on top of that, Cash in the game does not mean anything, all it does is allow a player to be able to wage more in higher games, but it is not even useful in building up your own player. Also you need to pay up hard earned gold for a bag that doesn’t even have decent clothes or facial hair styles in it. Overall, the gameplay is frustrating and there is no way to get your player to be good unless you pay money. I’m fine with paying money if it’s a good game and I’m having fun, but I refuse to give money to game developers that want money right at the start to be good at the game, that’s not how it works. I hope to see an update soon or I’ll just delete it and reinstall in like 1-2 years. It’s a game with potential to be one of the best in the app store it just needs some major fixes to it.
