    Guns Up! is devilishly addictive and provides a seriously fun formula of mutually beneficial attack and defence tactics. It’s initially intimidating economy only works to give the game depth once you’ve completed the enlightening tutorial, leaving you with a constant desire to progress and improve both your settlement and your garrison of units. All the above is unsettlingly blighted by an ever-present need to fork out real cash or face the reality of dampening the enjoyment by grinding for hours.

    Guns Up! is a fun game in short bursts. The setting up of soldiers and perks before an assault is easy to understand and do, with the action never being too long to get to. It looks and sounds decent too, but Guns Up! doesn’t quite meet its full potential. There needs to be more options available for when selecting which base to attack, also boredom due to repetition sinks in over longer play sessions. Guns Up! is a free to play title and there is no harm in checking it out though. It is one of those games that you can have a quick session on, and with that in mind Guns Up! is worth a go.

    Guns Up! is a nice way of getting started into RTS games, particularly because it's free-to-play and accessible. The problem is that it's not deep enough to make you stick to it for much longer, or might not be appealing for long-time fans of the genre.

    The sound ideas are still there, but the slow progression rate (clearly pushing players to open their wallets) ultimately spoils the fun.

    It's a fun game for short bursts, but there's nothing here that will make anyone long to play it, or even think of it for that matter, when they're not home. Hopefully, the developers will add more content to increase the variety and keep it interesting.

    Guns Up! is a dull game. It's repetitive, it's tedious, it's digital Ambien. If the thought of a console version of Clash of Clans excites you, you’ll probably have a blast with Guns Up! Me, I can’t wait to delete this off my PS4.

It looks nice and my only major complaint is load time. The game is completely playable without spending any money, so you only have to pay if you feel like supporting the developers like I do. I still haven't spent money, but I will probably spend 5 or 10 in the future. Also, please note that the only 0 so far is just someone who does not know how to play. If you can not even destroy a wall, no wonder you don't like it. Expand

A not very popular premise but definitely worth it. A game with simple and fun basics can be dangerously addictive. The alliances, the daily rewards and things like wanting to get better veterans or finally beat those opponents with 3 skulls makes you want to go in every day and play this wonderful game. The graphics are simple but well polished that in the end they look pretty good if we accompany it with the wonderful playability and gameplay. The idea of ​​the cards that we can obtain and use in attack is fantastic and they give it that special touch when it comes to playing. Some things could be improved, such as that the developers continue to update the game and do not leave it abandoned as it is now, the loading times on PS4 are somewhat long and the lack of music makes the little that there is tiring and repetitive. Definitely a hidden gem on the PlayStation store. 9/10 highly recommended to play it, and you will probably like it a lot. The game has a lot of potential and is very good, congratulations to the developers and let's fight! Expand

    If you have a PS Plus subscription, there will be some neat advantages that will surely give you a headstart, so might as well give it a try and decide if the game is worth some of your money. Repeatedly.
