Well, I am a big fan of the movies but that won't sway me in my opinion of this game. For one, it's nothing totally new as far as concept but it is a blast to play! It's the same level over and over but it doesn't loose it's overall charm and enjoyability. There are tons of over the top units, heroes, villains, and weapons. It has a rpg feel and lite leveling system that is easy to get into for pretty much any age. The controls are very simple. Pick up and play with no issues. I did not expect much as this developer does not have very good games but I was pretty amazed. I would like to see some new content but I can't think of much to change. Plus it's free... So I can't complain. No bugs to report in the game unlike a few of this developers titles. And, it stays true to the movie. Even if you haven't seen the movie there is a nicely done cut scene in the beginning that catches you up to speed. It's a lot of fun!

Awesome- A must have app!

At L E A S T try this app sine its free. I know you will like it. If I owned the company I would probably make it a 4, 5$ app. So good its not even funny. Very addictive. I get in trouble a lot because im so focused on the game I dont pay attention to anythin around me. Lol. But seriously, I have many of the greatest apps in the app store like ALL of the Angry Birds Apps, and this would have to be in the top 3, top 5 at least. AWSEOME APP GET IT NOW. By the way, I have had this app for 3 years now and is still great. Also, It has been free since then so dont worry about it becoming a paid app. There have been no updates but this app coul not improve on what it already is. Thanks for the Great App!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very Fun

I grabbed this game from the App Store on a whim, and it is so much fun. The mechanics are great. Even if I make a mistake while playing, it doesn't limit what I can do. I don't have to start over. I could strategize better, but I don't get brutally penalized if I don't think things through enough. Still, for those that like hardcore, restart when you fail kind of games, or for those who just like to restart for fun, there's an option on the menu to reset. I just love it. The characters say some really goofy things, and I giggle every time. I'd recommend this one to most people.
