    If you're not crazy about MMO titles, Game of War: Fire Age won't change your mind. It's a real grind to build something of significance, and even then, it can be frustrating against an overpowered Alliance. For fans of the genre, though, this should be downloaded immediately. All hail to the King, however long he lasts, anyway.

    Game of War: Fire Age takes some important steps toward something truly revolutionary, but it lacks the gameplay advances to make it all the way there. It's likely to appeal to the same players who enjoyed the games that preceded it, yet it feels like a missed opportunity for everyone else.

    Sure, Game of War - Fire Age isn't a great game, but the people playing it are an entertaining bunch indeed.

    Building an empire should really be more exciting than this.

Please explain to me why Russia should be allowed to receive the same packages for only $50 while America and other economically advanced Nations are having to spend $99.99 on a package? There are Russian players using Paypal to receive the money of other countries to buy the accounts packages for half price...isn't this not only robbing other players of enjoying the game, but isn't this scamming MZ of money? It's providing Russian with the upper hand in a game that MZ claims is trying to bring other countries together when in fact, they are creating a huge rift between nations. The only players who really enjoy the game, are those who can AFFORD $10,000.00 to blow on the game, while those who can't, are bullied and burned when they fall asleep. Fairness? There is none. But the game is addicting, and if you know how to CHEAT to get extra Gold and Speed-Ups, its fun. Cheers to the cheating blokes who hit that billion power in the game! Expand

    Nicely designed game and pretty fun to play. Unfortunately, you come under the thumb of a huge bully alliance that dictates their own rulesNicely designed game and pretty fun to play. Unfortunately, you come under the thumb of a huge bully alliance that dictates their own rules as to what resources you can farm and when you can do it under the threat of attack which largely prevents other players from progressing in the game. The game makers need to address this issue. Expand

    I played this game for months and I was one of the highest scoring (kills) players in my kingdom. That being said, I dislike this game andI played this game for months and I was one of the highest scoring (kills) players in my kingdom. That being said, I dislike this game and quit. It is oddly both addicting and boring. There is almost nothing in the way of strategy or actual competition. Rather, the game is about acquisition of power through menial tasks. Even if you spend a lot of money (I spent $600) it still takes a lot of time and boredom. The money I spent was nothing compared to some in my alliance who were spending $1000s. The game is addicting because it taps into some human element about power acquisition. eg., "I just need to complete a few more tasks to get these materials to get better weapons" or "I just need to upgrade this buildings so I can build more troops".

    The funniest thing about the game is there is very little actual fighting given how long it takes and how expensive it is to building your empire. If you start attacking people your inbox will fill with people complaining. I often joked that the game should be called, "complaining about war".

    I know a lot of guys who like the game but that is because they like the fun of hanging and chatting in a powerful alliance. They rarely fight. It is simply too expensive to do so. If you are not prepared to spend a lot of money then find a different game. The wait times for key items is in the 100s of days. So without buying speedups you will never get them. And the guys who do buy them will simply run over you. While there is no real fighting, the big players will simply run over the small players on a daily basis for fun.

    I support AngryMissus. In my case its a wife that has become an addict. I'm talking daily play of around 22 hours. Family life has gone toI support AngryMissus. In my case its a wife that has become an addict. I'm talking daily play of around 22 hours. Family life has gone to cr@p!! Aggression seem to be the order of the day when communicating with real people whilst the game family is loved and revered. Even my kids have now said that their mum is a completely different and pleasant person when the internet has gone down and she cannot get on the game. I've set up an account to try and understand the allure of this and it is complete rubbish. Maybe best for people who want to escape from real life but a load of nonsense for those people who actually have a life. Expand

    No skill is required, to gain power you have one option, spend money and lots of it. If you don’t spend money then you will just be attackedNo skill is required, to gain power you have one option, spend money and lots of it. If you don’t spend money then you will just be attacked for resources continually by those that do. I would not recommend this game for anyone, much better quality games to play, cheaper too. Expand

    Customer service is null and void. All they want is $$ unless you are a single millionaire dont bother. I am sure there are better games outCustomer service is null and void. All they want is $$ unless you are a single millionaire dont bother. I am sure there are better games out there. Played for almost a year and lately lots of glitches, that cost the player gold and troop and Machine Zone says oh well, we are sorry but we cant help you. I lost 100K gold on their glitch got an oh well then ignored. STAY AWAY Expand
