This game used to be quite fun but since I have reached Bear status it’s been very unfair and disappointing. Sometime between 1/1/21 & 1/4/21, 14,000 of my diamonds just disappeared. I have reached out to the developers, explained what happened, asked for a ticket number and status update and here it is February 17 and still no response from developers and no reimbursement of my diamonds. Also, I played the first two PVP Squad wars of the new year and received no rewards from the wars(We won both). I also let the developers know that also and no response. As to my prior comment unfairness, I am now a golden bear but during wars and arena challenges, 99% of the time I am going against a minimum of 5 skulls and the rest lions. Very seldom do I compete against fellow bears or lower or anyone who has a comparable gear rating. This game is getting very frustrating and discouraging. The only thing that keeps me coming back is my fellow veterans who I Squad War with. If it wasn’t for them I would be gone. It’s not fun to play a game when the playing field is not fair and you lose rewards (diamonds, battle coins, coins) that you fought very hard for. Until these issues get fixed I will not spend another dime on this game and if my fellow veterans (who are having the same issues) decide to leave the game, I will be following them. Get this stuff fixed and remedied developers. This is getting old. Give me back my diamonds and level the playing field.
ADS SO MANY ADS
As far as gameplay goes, I really enjoy this one! There’s a lot of content and for a mobile game I actually find it really engaging and well designed. For a game of good quality I don’t even mind the occasional ad, and their premium offer is something I wouldn’t spend money on but I can see why people would. Their diamond “premium currency” in game is a little overpriced for my taste, but I think it seems comparable to what I’ve seen in plenty of other mobile games.
Having said that, THEY ARE GOING TO FORCE AN AD DOWN YOUR THROAT EVERY 15 SECONDS. Not an exaggeration, if it’s not a third party ad it’s them constantly begging for more of your money in game by bombarding you with “sweet deals” that are way cheaper than the stores prices, and if you don’t want to make the purchase they add an extra two screens of “just making sure” you don’t want to cash in on this “sweet deal”. EVERY. TIME. It ruins the whole experience for me. If the ads were trimmed down to even a third of what they are now I would’ve given this game a much higher score. It just makes it seem like the developers don’t care about how it interfaces with your user experience and like this whole thing is just a quick money grab. It really cheapens the value of an otherwise quality game.
TLDR: great gameplay, way too many ads. Like an unbearable amount.
Customers don’t matter to this company, and players who don’t pay to play matter even less
By CL Norris
The realistic aspect made me love this game, but it’s gotten to the point that it is unplayable, literally! World Ops and PvP loading and not crashing for two missions is like winning the lotto and this is after the latest update. World Ops is how you earn money for new guns and upgrades to them, so unless you’re going to pay to play, you won’t be able to finish this game. Customer service is nonexistent. Best tablet/phone game at one point and now unplayable and just taking up space on my iPad. I tried talking to customer service, but when they did finally get back to me all they said was the game should be working now and they were sorry. Hackers in PvP, like players with assault rifles, make even paying customers not stand a chance and they don’t care about the hackers, or don’t ban them. Fun while it lasted, but I’ll be making room on my iPad after giving developers a month to get the game going and compensate me the same they did a friend who had spent money on this. I was going to, but glad I didn’t now. Allowing behavior is endorsing it, and I cannot endorse their “service.”

I immediately loved this game. The pay to win aspect isn’t even too bad. But I went ahead and upgraded to premium+ for $200. Which got me some pretty cool benefits. After months of playing, I’ve built my character and gear/mods up quite a bit. Then this most recent patch came out and erased it all! I’ve lost all my mods, most of my weapon upgrades, and essentially everything that made going premium+ worth it. The worst part is I can’t get a response from customer support. I know other players are experiencing similar issues, but there has been no announcement regarding plans to fix it. Now I am fully aware that paying several hundred for a P2W isn’t smart, but I’m wondering if we all just got fleeced and the devs took the money and ran. Until this issue is fixed, I highly discourage you from downloading this game. I don’t know if it’s worth me even playing, because I don’t know if any further progress is just going to be erased again. STAY AWAY! With that said, I really enjoyed this game, if they restore everything I’ll come back and update to 5 stars.
PVP is unfair
By I only speak fax
So I like this game, I really do, but some things just need to be fixed. There a a lot of problems with the game but the pvp mode is one of the big ones. I really think it was good you added PVP to the game but, the problem is the pairing algorithm. I get into a match right? Before I can even spot someone, another guy kills me within two shots. While I sit there shooting with my sniper with a 3 bullet mag. Worse part is, my shot does AT THE MOST 1 damage out of 200. Even without my victim spotting me while I sit there shooting for 10 minutes straight, the match would’ve ended before I got to kill one player! Now sometimes I get in to a match with people weaker than me, and they don’t stand a chance! I think it’s really unfair that you pair people the way you do, whatever that is, it just doesn’t work! Don’t let people use the same guns from the campaign mode, because if they’re new to PVP but have been playing campaign for a long time, they are basically going to win every match. That’s just one problem. I know development is hard when it comes to a video game but with the great game you’ve created, I think it wouldn’t be too much of a problem to change the little things that ruin the entire game. Also, the so called “mods” in the world ops mode, I bought one with 500 gems and the next day, it disappeared! This game needs some work, REALLY!
I’ve been playing this game for quite a while. It makes for a good time waster when you’re waiting in line, etc. I appreciated that although it’s not flashy, it’s fairly stable, and they at least gave you the opportunity to play for free without having to jump through too many hoops. But all that changed with the last update. Now the game is buggy - daily bonuses don’t show up half the time, things take longer to load, and worst of all, they’ve started pumping ads every few minutes now. If you don’t pay for Premium, you already had to watch a lot of ads to progress through the game. But now they randomly pop up every few minutes. I don’t begrudge them making money, but the pendulum swung from reasonable to awful, literally overnight. If the change had been accompanied by some major value-add upgrade, it might not be so bad, but this game is mostly just recycled backdrops, NPCs, and side missions from one level to the next. The gameplay is really repetitive, particularly in the side missions and PVP, but even the main missions get recycled - which, again is fine for a free time-waster kind of game, but not when you’re seeing ads every two minutes. The game just doesn’t offer enough variety to justify me spending any more time with it.
I have to admit that this game is very addicting and that it is just a great game in general. I have been playing this for a while and I have noticed quite a few things that kind of ruined it for me. For one, you have to wait so much in this game. You have energy bars and I think there I like 10 of them, so that means when it’s full, you get to play about 10 games. When you use all of the energy up, you have to wait for it to refill, which can take a while. Also, when you are upgrading guns of higher tiers, the upgrades take so long to come in. It used to take only like 5 minutes, but now I have to wait a half an hour just to get one upgrade. Another thing that I realized is that the developers of this game are super money hungry. As you play this game, you start to realize how much they beg you for money. I’ll also mention that they have an ad like every 30 seconds! It’s almost impossible to et a good gun without having to pay for gold and diamonds. All of the good guns cost so many diamonds and the diamonds take forever to build up! One of the only ways to get diamonds is by watching ads. In conclusion, this is a good game, but there is so much waiting in it and the app developers are money hungry. To be completely honest, I don’t even suggest you get this game.
The game can be fun, if you have deep pockets. Oh, and if they ever fix the bugs. If you don’t spend you won’t get far in pvp or world ops. Campaign is fun but the more you progress, you’re only able to do one or two missions before you need to buy an upgrade. The higher upgrades take 30 minutes before you can equip them, but if you have a ton of gems (deep pockets) you can get them instantly. The “discounted” weapons are just out of reach with your current gold or gem amount, but if you drop a couple bucks, you can get them. Pvp is lopsided. You enter the arena, or whatever it’s called, just to find out that you’ve been paired with players that are ridiculously more powered than you are. If you get 2 kills, you’re doing pretty good. Meanwhile the person that takes first has like 13 kills (he’s a big spender so he’s got all the best weapons and gear). And here’s where the bug issue comes into play. For over a month we haven’t been able to access anything to do with your squad. Squad chat just became “available” about a week ago. You can’t leave your current squad to join a new one and if you didn’t have a squad, you can’t create or join one. Not to mention the bonuses that are supposed to be paid out after the pvp and world ops, aren’t being paid out. If I were able to give less than 1 star, I would.
Does not deserve a 4.9 review
This game is not a 4.9 star game. First of all, the game itself is not a good game. The bodies of the enemies after you kill them often phase into objects when they fall down, and I know you are able to have physics as in your taxi levels, when the taxi driver dies the taxi flips over and if anything is in the way it will bounce of off it. You also probably have the money for it, even if you don’t have the physics (I will get to this in a later point). I understand this is a mobile game, but if it’s still one of the most high rated games on the App Store. Second, this game wants you to pay so much money. If you want to get this one gun but it requires diamonds there’s no way to get diamonds without watching ads or buy them. I’m on the 4th city and I only have 190 diamonds and haven’t spent a single one. How much do guns cost? At least 1000 diamonds. My third and final point is how much premium is shoved in your face. Pretty much any time you beat a level an ad asks you if you have any money like how a homeless person begs for some money. Not to mention how much premium gives you. Pretty much anything that’s in the game be upgraded if you get premium. This wouldn’t be so bad if the game wasn’t already crappy so spending money on this app is basically a waste. Anyways, this is my review of your game.
Money Hungry Developer!
I had to admit, it’s a fun game to play. But if you plan to not spent any money to buy gold or diamonds in-game, then your weapons are all crappy ones. Even when you become premiums, yes, you get a little more gold for some missions and a couple more energy bars to play. But that’s about it. It’s like they force you to spend your money to buy gold to get the better weapons. I played the same daily mission many times and what I notice is that when you save up a lot of gold just in case they offer you the mission weapon in discount so you can buy it, it end up that it doesn’t matter how much gold you had you still can’t buy it. Because the offer always knows when you have enough gold and when you don’t. Example, if that mission weapons discounted 216,000 gold and 147 diamond, they’ll allow you to buy with gold if your gold is less then 216,000, otherwise, if you have more than 216,000 gold, they only have the option for diamonds, which diamonds cost a lot of money to buy. If you plan to play just to pass time and don’t care about the game then it’s a grate game to play. If you’re competitive and want close to perfection or even perfection, plan to spend a lot of money to buy gold and diamonds. I’m done with this game!
