    Some interesting ideas lie within Goodgame Empires. Running a kingdom, forming alliances, and conquering your enemies sounds like a recipe for success on paper. This however, is a recipe to bleed the pockets of anybody who plays – unless they have ridiculous patience.

I have been a player since around 2013 2012 and this game is just great. Thous are the only words i can use to describe this great creation. Another game by GG Studios is Galaxy but i will talk about that one later. Some people say this is pay to win. That isn't really true. You do have to pay if you want to speed things up by a lot I'm a lv 24 moving on 25 and i never bought rubes. Also you can't play to win because you can't win the game just goes on and on never stopping always giving players a reason to play Expand

The only 2 down sides is that when you send an attack you still have to wait for your army to come back afterwards and I'm not allowed to pay on online games and it's pretty hard to get rubies without paying.

You are in an alliance with friends but you can't do a **** unless you started early in 2011, you MUST buy RUBIES to have progress and achieve a standing ground/defence. This game is clearly out of sense. Expand

    Absolutely terrible! This game is full of bugs, has severe lags disrupting game play several times every day, and drops your connection out ofAbsolutely terrible! This game is full of bugs, has severe lags disrupting game play several times every day, and drops your connection out of nowhere.
    Customer service is extremely poor. Their staff is rude to the customers accusing them of lying and attempting to cheat the system when they ask for things lost due to lags and bugs. There is no support on weekends, there have been several people who haven't gotten responses at all to tickets, and it averages a week to get a response. Even then, most often the expect proof they know we can not come up with. We do not screenshot our every move!

    There is a HUGE gab between the paying customers and the average player. Paying customers can buy advantages that are impossible for the average person to defend against.

    Players are leaving in droves. Do not waste your time on this one. You will be sorry and wanting your time back.

    0/10 for GGE Empire.

    There's a lot of money and effort being put into this game: the art and sound are sweet. But these aspects are totally swamped by design andThere's a lot of money and effort being put into this game: the art and sound are sweet. But these aspects are totally swamped by design and monetization issues. The basic game design is nothing but grinding out levels and rewards. Every quest, every upgrade, every bonus, is nothing but requirements to grind more, to get rewards that are just percentage improvements in your ability to grind. It's Farmville with swords. And there is nothing original in the game design. It's a jumble of ripped off ideas, all very simple and repetitive. Click on attack, confirm about five times, then repeat dozens of times every day.

    And every action is used as an excuse to lean on the player to buy in game money. I'm sure it gets worse the higher you go. Even in just five hours of playing the game begged me for money hundreds of times. It seems like the whole thing is an effort to find that one in a thousand mental defective who will spend hundreds of dollars. Then if they can't coerce you into spending money, the game tries to manipulate you into making this game the center of your attention by punishing you if you don't come back to collect taxes every six hours (!).

    The programming is also weak. It gets sluggish even with the simplest things like scrolling. Basic stuff like scroll bars and check boxes are poorly reimplemented. The help system sucks.

    The primary interface for this fantasy adventure is a windows dialog box where you adjust the sliders and check boxes then click OK. It could be a static HTML game and there would be no difference in the game play. I did not find a single example of what I would describe as true game play involving strategy or skill. Just follow the directions and clicky clicky click click.
