Nov 30, 2015Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is the best Star Wars game to release for mobile devices in recent memory.
Apple'N'AppsDec 2, 2015Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes is an entertaining way to play in the Star Wars universe that is well worth picking up.
Nov 25, 2015A simple RPG wrapped in a pretty complex free to play system, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is fun, but there's not that much to it.
Dec 1, 2015Galaxy of Heroes is unoriginal and repetitive, and even though it can be entertaining, it feels like a wasted opportunity to do something more interesting with the franchise.
Dec 10, 2015Another miss opportunity to bring a real masterpiece based on the George Lucas universe. The same flat and dull RPG adventure experience yet seen in many other games.
Dec 9, 2015Galaxy of Heroes is the demonstration that the Star Wars template is not enough to save an already criticized formula.
Nov 25, 2015Galaxy of Heroes injects the Star Wars licence into a mobile blueprint, and the result is pretty bland.
CD-ActionFeb 4, 2016Grinding in its purest form. [01/2016, p.75]

Jun 9, 2016#1 rule, don't pay a penny for this.
The most pathetic attempt at a SW experience ever. The game lags and crashes all over the place even on#1 rule, don't pay a penny for this.
The most pathetic attempt at a SW experience ever. The game lags and crashes all over the place even on the shield tablet k1. The characters are all but unique, some with their powers and abilities as they would never have in the SW universe. There are no sounds attached to characters and animations are all the same and repetitive, even bonus actions are just the same animation that you have to watch from start to end. The developers are most interested in adding more characters that you can get by paying real cash rather than fixing issues, and balancing the gameplay. They just couldn't care less.
Some characters are way overpowered, like Count Dooku, Rey, Kylo, Sidious, Unduli and more... The devs seem to have a special attachment to those few, as they do nothing to balance them. Dooku for example has 100% counter!!!
Other pathetic mechanics are dodging, especially when a character is stunned. Sometimes, the dodging goes as far as 100% during battle, where you can't land a single hit, before being obliterated.
The grind is real, and it will take a good year to get to realistic position in the arena with some good toons at proper levels, unless you pay hard cash to get roulette based character or shard drops. Yes, roulette! for the same value in cash , you can get as much as an equivalent of a bucket, all the way up to a character with no skills or level, so basically it's a ripoff, not worth a penny.
Othe nice touch from the devs include, the beautiful system of levelling up, where the price doubles for each level, but the gains are getting smaller and smaller with each level. Also the game seems to be stacking you up against enemies of your player level, rather than your character's level.
Other than that it's a bit of fun if you can stand the negatives.… Full Review »

The recent update isI'm writing this review so others may avoid it. I felt cheated and insulted when the paywall mechanics finally took over. The recent update is a flagrant money grab by the developers to squeeze every red cent out of hard core players before--I assume--the game is killed. Save your time and money. Oh, and don't dare to complain to the devs on their forums. They'll just threaten to ban your whole account if you say anything bad about the game.… Full Review »

Raiding is poorly designed, PVP is broken, campaign is you fighting 3 waves of enemies, that it.
There is no substance to this game at all. If you're looking for a good star wars game to play on your phone I suggest getting KOTOR.
That game is amazing, great game play, amazing story and replayability depending on choices you made in your previous game.… Full Review »
