First I'm evaluating this game for what it is. A browser based game. This means I put less emphasis on Graphics, depth of play and Sound. The reason: It's a browser based game.... Nuff said.
Graphics: Again It's a browser based game. I've seen slightly better and worse in browser games. Effect on score 0
Sound. Not too bad actually. I had the sound on for a while when I started playing before I set it to mute (Because I play this game while I do boring paper work in my home office) Score +1
Gameplay: This game is quite good. There is a PvP aspect but it is optional. There's a significant singleplayer part which is awesome. You can't lose everything you sunk your time into to another player and the game doesn't reset. +1
Progression: The Pay-wall... Always a negative. It's not as bad as in other games, but the limited space and how the game kinda sorta wants to force you to use (diamonds) to pay to get extra space... I saw this as a kind of negative... It sucks to be in an age and literally run out of the ability to build stuff because you don't have enough space to make it work.. also a REALLY frustrating part is getting Blueprints for Great Buildings. There's a RNG component to it and it seems rigged.... You need 1 of each copy of 9 to build the building... and through the RNG I've had 6-9 of each copy except 1 is at ZERO... I've had this happen to 3 Great Buildings... So the frustration of this is a -3 to the score all things considered.
Social. Not so good... The messaging system is kinda poorly designed. You can't tell who is actively online unless they send a message or talk and they can't see if you're online. The Live-chat is ok... but kinda limited as well. Score -2
Design: The game is well designed and flows well. It's unique in the Browser based games : Score +1
It's worth playing. It does kill time, and paying isn't ABSOLUTELY necessary but the RNG is frustrating. They could work on the social aspect a little as it's a draw back and even with good IRL friends we end up talking on Facebook and not in the game… Full Review »
