A good long while back i reviewed this game and had a few good things and a few bad to say about it. But now with the story mode update things are different. I really really like the story, and i love going through all over again with different hero cards and leveling them all individually as a ahow of my own mastery of that character and its abilities and cards. Something i really dont enjoy is how on any higher dificulty the bots begin to cheat. They automatically start with a free card drawn, and by the time you have enough allies to wipe the board they have enough resources to draw several out at once and just finish off your remaining health. If i were to improve that, or offer suggestion to do so, instead of letting them spawn minions immediately, upgrade their deck and make the AI smarter. Dont cheat for the bot but instead make them more challenging with really tough cards and smart enough to not just focus on your hero alone but react to what you draw. Unfortunately i want to give it more stars than i did the first time but i cant overlook that major issue, as well as the strange bugs that occur durring story mode play. Elementalis has given me several problems in battle where it simply stops playing after a certain turn count, or it draws a certain card and freaks out. If these things are ever changed my review will also change drastically to match the updates. But for now it will remain at 3 stars, definately worth playing.
This game set a huuuuge standard for me when it was released. There was nothing like it, and as an experienced paper TCG player (Magic: The Gathering Yu-Gi-Oh, World of Warcraft TCG, Pokémon, etc) I was a little iffy about getting into a mobile version of a card game, but this was fair, didn't take long to get a collection going and more importantly? It is super fun. Incredibly fun. It mashed two of my personal favourite TCG's together in a beautiful fashion; Magic, and the WoW TCG. The resource system is beautiful, no strategy is too broken in competitive play, and the Dev has released consistent enough manner to be able to keep up with current stuff, without the older sets being forgotten.
It's still going strong, and I still to this day enjoy it. It's been years. I've played in some tournaments (not super successfully :P) and just simply have had fun. It's a good TCG. If you're remotely into them, try them. I love Hearthstone and other mobile TCG's as well. But Shadow Era will always have my heart on the phone/PC screen.
Well balanced card game
Most everything about the game is well balanced. The art is beautiful. While the game and its mechanics are very well thought out, I reserve one star because since it's inception, the user interface has always been lackluster. The movement of the cards feel too linear and sluggish when compared to something like hearthstone, which gives them a kind of light mass. The menus can be a lot more intuitive. The cards themselves look one dimensional objects. Even the card edges seem jagged at times. Also, everything seems very dark. I understand that it's a part of the theme, but things can definitely be brightened up a bit. Lastly, the music, visual, and sound effects are equally camp. Overall, while the development team have done an amazing job of implementing this digital CCG and its gaming components, they've left the actual experience of playing it wanting. It simply doesn't "feel nice," and this makes it seem like a low budget movie.
