LEARN HOW TO PLAY as Renegade please!
The app itself clearly has its flaws, the biggest being the occasional lost connection, this seems to usually result from people rapidly using the table-talk function, which shouldn't be part of the game in the first place. However, my greatest frustration comes from online players being inept at playing as the Renegade. DO NOT act like you are the Deputy for the whole game, this almost always leads to a three-way between Sherriff, Deputy, and Renegade because the Outlaws get ganged up on, which in turn results in an uneven amount of victories for the Law. As the Renegade your philosophy of play should be to keep the game balanced and if anything kill the Deputy before any Outlaws, thus converting yourself into a temporary ally of the Sheriff, before hopefully gunning the Outlaws down while the Sheriff is weak. This is doubtless the most difficult role to win with but you have a much greater chance to win by acting like your actual role, not pretending to be the Sheriff's patsy and upsetting the balance of play that was designed for this great game! Please learn how to play before going online.
I realize most of these reviews are old but a lot of the negative reviews just aren't fair.
Ok the A.I. Is pretty predictable and at times annoying, however Playing the game against computer opponents can still be enjoyable. Sure the Lawful have a pretty big advantage and trying to play as the Outlaws can be tough but it's Definitely doable. Willy the Kid ,Elena Fuente, and Calamity Janet can all put up a pretty good fight due to their special abilities.
As far as the online experience it's not meant to be played over a wireless cellular account, playing through a wireless Internet connection usually works fine. Playing against good human opponents can make for some interesting matches with maybe a slight advantage to the Lawful and to some characters(Willy the kid etc..) but played right any character in any role can sway the match in a direction towards victory. Sure it's all about the cards to a degree but not just what you're dealt but the how/when/and why you use the cards you get.
I'll admit I'm not that good compared to alot of the regular players, but it's still fun playing with them every now and then.
All in all Bang! Is worth the money, it's one of the best card/board games on the App Store period.
If you're new to the game give it a go and have fun.
Great game; needs updates!
This is a fun game and has potential for much better gameplay experience, but some much needed TLC is due for the app. Takes too long on single player to cycle through all the other ai players because of all the card effects, unstable when connected to a multiplayer game often loses connection, multiplayer match screen needs some major attention as it makes no sense how many games are going and how many players are in each game and should be able to join rather than wait for 5 minutes for an auto match, shouldn't allow as much stall time to a player between moves, also there is no way to exit the tutorial if you accidentally push that button until you get all the way into the game and it's your turn, etc...just please do some updates already, I feel like it's been left as is too long.
