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.
Improvements should be made
Bang! is a great game, and I disagree with some of the other reviews that say this isn't a mobile-friendly game. I play on my iPhone all the time, and I never have a problem knowing which card is which. All it takes is a little practice.
It is a little frustrating that you can't play online using a cellular data network (at least not with AT&T's). You need to be connected to WiFi or you will lose connection almost immediately after starting an online match. This takes away some of the fun because it limits where you can play.
The character emoticons definitely need to go. If you told someone which character you were during a regular card game, it would be considered table talk (even if you weren't telling the truth), but somehow it's ok if you're online? Get rid of that silly nonsense, please.
Even when connected to WiFi, about 1 out of 4 online matches crashes. Incredibly frustrating, especially when you are winning.
Overall a great game. Just needs some technical upgrades and a little tweaking.
Please fix match making
The match making is buggy. It seems to lock up. It shows that there are games and players available, yet I am unable to join any games. Additionally, it should be clearer to the user what the state of match making is. Show which games are available, how many players are in each, and let the player pick which to join. It's extremely frustrating to see it say there are 2-3 matches and 10 players available, yet just have it spin on Searching for Match... for 5 minutes. Other than this, the game is great! Would be awesome to see more characters and more expansions!
