Extremely fun, a few bugs, a few requests.
This game is very fun to play. Whenever I have a bit of free time, I always jump on this game. I especially like the ability to customize so many aspects of the gameplay. There are a few bugs that can get a little bit annoying. There are times where ‘ghost troops’ are displaying in a province . They’re ghost troops because they are not in any way manageable or movable. Another bug that I’ve noticed is that in rare occasions, the game freezes during troop movements and I’m forced to quit the app, consequently loosing all progress. Another bug that would be great if it was resolved would be the renaming of provinces, it tends to not save after exiting the game when renaming a province. Besides the few bugs, this game is great and overall very reliable. The bugs are not too common. I do have a bit of requests though, I wish this game had a way to allow background music to play during gameplay. Whenever I play my Apple Music and I open the game, the game automatically shuts the music off. Also the app needs a bit more optimization for the iPhone version, some menus and information tends to get cut off with the iPhone’s notch. Also, I really dislike how the display box appears after anything you touch, sometimes the display (info box) gets in the way and it makes it hard to scroll/navigate trough the menus during gameplay. I strongly recommend this game if you like countries and war/conquering other countries’ armies.
Very Fun, but a few issues
First, the game is one of my favorite strategy war games. I have spent many hours on this game. You have huge maps to play on that are very realistic. You can make your own scenarios, countries, leaders, etc. You have many a few options as far as diplomacy goes, but not as extensive as it could be. The win/lose thing with warfare is mostly numbers based, if you have a bigger army, you win, so it is not as strategic as it could be.
I have found that the game does not run well at all on normal iPads. I had a ipad 6 for a while, and that was the device I started playing this game on. It would crash frequently, especially if you have a very large country. I have since bought an IPad Pro, and the game runs so much better on it. I don’t think that it has crashed once, and most of the loading bugs are fixed.
The bugs are annoying, but most of them aren’t game-hindering.
I have problems with the tutorial. The tutorial took me a very long time to figure it out, and then I didn’t really understand it. The ‘easy to learn’ aspect isn’t as easy as it sounds. It took me few games of trial and error to learn everything.
So in the end, it is a fun game and I think worth the money. If you would be upset with it crashing often, you need to only get it if you have a powerful device.
Great Game... more tech?
First of all I wanted to say I love everything about this game. Freedom in strategy, creating borders, internal building of countries, and all the other cool things that went into making this game more entertaining and diverse in options are all really amazing. However, I do think that can be taken a step further. This is how. The game is pretty structured around military action, right? Well, I think it would be pretty cool if you could elaborate more on the technology that was available during the era you’re in. For example, Machine Guns, Early Tanks (landships, mark IV, Renault tanks... etc), Dreadnoughts, and Artlilerry Barrages for the Age of Imperialism. Atomic Bombs, New Tank innovations such as Panzers, and others for the age of conflict. Or even as we progress into Cold War/Contemporary events we see advancements in nuclear technology, stealth bombers, and things along those lines. I could go on and on, but my point is, is that there should be technology being made available to the players. The player should be a little bit more immersed in the era they’re in. Also, I think it would be cool if there were more detailed diplomatic decisions you had to make wether it was between other nations or even within your own country. Anyway, just my thoughts. As I said before... love the game, keep up the good work
