Would be fun if the AI wasn’t garbage


Aside from the stupidly long build times, the inability to upgrade multiple things at once, and overall bad “history”. This game has some of the WORST AI I have ever seen, you tell units to attack this or that and unless they have a proper path they will just sit there attacking their current target. I’m glad that they built the game with counter units, but why do those units AUTO TARGET their counters? The AI prioritizes, at the cost of the battle, their counters instead of what you tell them to attack. As someone that has played the original game since 1999, don’t waste your time with this game. It isn’t Age of Empires, but Microsoft doesn’t care, they just wanted a clash of clans ripoff. Instead why don’t you as the game developer make something worth buying, I would much prefer to play a good game that has great mechanics and pay $20-30 than have a piece of crap that ruins the legacy of its namesake.

Takes FOREVER to upgrade, which I hate!!

Addicting so beware!

I do not like this game because it takes FOREVER to gather enough resources just to upgrade 1 building, and you cannot upgrade more than 4 buildings at a time, even if you actually have the resources! I hate that you are given a time limit in battle, especially when you are taking revenge on someone that attacked you and you still have troops left! I also hate that you cannot take revenge on someone after a certain amount of time (days, months, etc.) has gone by! You cannot search for someone and then find them, and be able to hit the attack/revenge button! How lame is that!?! If you want to spend $$ (which I refuse to) then sure you can upgrade faster. It’s a never ending game of constant upgrades, which I also dislike.

Castle Siege


I have been playing this game for about a year. I understand the criticism it faces if you expect to sit down and play this game for an hour. Not going to happen. The way you play it, is 5 or 10 minutes at a time several times a day. The fun comes when you attack others and everybody else has configured their own resources differently. The AI of the game opposes you with foes roughly equivalent to you. Your opponents are real people but they have chosen a silly array sometimes — or they might be extremely challenging (and you lose). Win or lose, it’s fun!
