Ratings and Reviews
Challenging but fun
I find this game challenging to get 3 stars on the sieges. But the challenge is fun and gives my old brain a workout in coming up with a winning strategy. I try to figure out how to adjust my deck of cards to have the best chance to win. I engage enemy units as far out as possible because if you wait they will overwhelm you. The key to me is to not lose the multiplier. I try to figure out when I can engage and have a draw which gives the enemy damage and weakens them but does not cost me the multiplier. Only when I am sure I can get a draw or win do I attack. The random critical hit can mess up that strategy and if that happens I just have to try again. I use the cards as quickly as I can even when using one will not give maximum damage if I were to wait a turn or two i.e. I don't wait until the maximum enemy spawn in a sector before using the orbital strike. Holding a card reduces the chance of getting another useful card. And I will discard a card hoping to get it later when it may be more useful. Having maximum shields at the end is also key. Having the squad shield card toward the end to rebuild the shields is key to that. And toward the end if I have a choice of using a card or unit to defeat an enemy I will go with the unit to get the rank up points. I use Princess Leia to defeat Boba Fett because she can defeat him and take away his re-spawn perk. Anyway a fun time killer that gives my brain a workout to come up with a winning strategy.
Great Companion App
I'm not in any affiliation with EA, I'm just a dude who thought this app was pretty cool and needed to give it a good rating. All these people writing one or two star reviews probably can't figure out how to use the app and could also be running it without an internet connection or on an old device. I see no reason not to give this app 5 stars because it completely deserves it. The commander game is something else we have never really seen before from a companion app and I hope that this can really set a good example for future games and their companions. The ability to check stats, change load outs and see progress are all pretty standard and are what we expect from a companion. The Commander game really makes me happy though, all these guys saying "luck of the draw isn't fair" and "the game is made so you can win" aren't really thinking about what a card game really is. When your playing Chess and the guy across the table looks like he's going laugh his head off at your next move you don't just get up and punch him, you play your turn to the best of your knowledge and then you learn about the one really specific rule you just broke and lose the game because of it. You can't blame the rules or the guy across the table, but your self for not understanding the game.
Great app! 5 Star reviews fake? Please.
Short version: This app is just awesome. And it's free.
Longer version: "90% of the 4-5 star reviews are fake"? No, of course not. Only a bad app would need to do something like that. This app is great. I can look at my stats, my KDR, and I can buy and equip stuff from my iPad. But my favorite part is the strategy game. The only reason you see people saying stuff like, "The game is fun for the first few matches, but then gets stupid and frustrating" or "too much 'luck of the draw'" is probably because their not that great at it. Also, the reliance on luck thing, isn't really true. You can customize decks of star cards, so you only use cards you want, and you can discard both unit and star cards. You just gotta use strategy. I've beaten most of the levels on it and I think it's pretty fun. Getting 3 stars on every level will probably be a bit more of a challenge, but what's a game without hardness? You also earn credits for the full game while playing the app.
There's a reason why there's so many good reviews.
