Customer Reviews

Great Game, but I always lose my save file.

Before I go into my save file loss, I'm going to review the game without that problem. This is really a great game. I almost never pay for apps, and that usually means I go and play a game for 2 minutes and then I have to stop because my energy needs to be restored or I have to wait for something or another. With this game, I will play constantly only stopping when I actually want to. I actually got this game for free with AppsGoneFree, but I would easily pay at least .99 for this great game. the visuals are pretty good, great animations but the actual character models and terrain aren't very high quality, but it's a large 3D game so I'm not going to take my review score down for that. I really love it's just so fun and satisfying when you can take down an enemy in one hit. Game: 5 Stars. Now for my save file problem: I'll be far ahead on a mission, and when I have to leave, I'll make sure nothing will happen by saving multiple times onto the save file, and when I go to play that save file, it loads like two missions back!

Great game! But! Need some new Troops/Artillery

I have some awesome ideas for future updates! A new naval unit! The Aircraft carrier! A 3 size Block unit that can launch and refuel airborne units. A new Barracks unit the Juggernaut a big unit able to take out buildings infantry and vehicles! Basically a Commando on steroids! Also new maps added to Skirmish and pass and play, More trenches maps. Bigger maps and Maps related to G-Day. Also a new weapons factory unit called the minesweeper a vehicle that can be used in Pass and play. Because mines really get on my nerves. A vehicle that can absorb blast and can Attack using a small Barrel to defend itself from Recon tanks. One thing is if you add them as a In app purchase it's ok I'll buy it as soon as it comes out! I'm really looking forward to this update and hopefully you can add this to the list. Thanks for you time
Sincerely GBWGGeneral,

Most in depth app I've ever played

The amount of care and work that was put into this fantastic and challenging game speaks for itself, in its massive campaign length, which awards you battle points for completing missions, which you then use to unlock upgrades for your troops to fit your play style, infantry, tanks, ships and helicopters, allowing for a replayability factor that most games like this wouldn't have! On top of that it also has multiplayer aspects, to challenge your friends over the AI. Further in game customization ( for a low additional fee ) make this game go above and beyond, it's impossible to not be satisfied in this game with its laughable humor and fun gameplay mechanics.
