Catawba Claw - I’m not at all a Superhero guy.
I’ve watched 0 Spider-Man, Superman, Avengers, Hulk, Ant Man movies. I love this game. I’m not playing this because of some long-standing love of all things Super Hero. And to tell the truth I have no clue why I began playing it as I have no real interest. And I think that’s says a lot about the game. The characters are of course plentiful and they have a wide variety of skills and numerous ways to level them up but while that’s great I think the best part of the game is how some characters work better with certain characters which adds another level of skill that I haven’t found in games like this. The gameplay is smooth great looking challenging and the games within in the game add so much to developing your characters you should be pretty deeply in before you have to spend any real amounts of cash. To me that’s key to my enjoyment if I have to empty my wallet on day one to play enough to know if I like it that’s the mark of a bad game. Will you spend money most likely yes but by the time you spend real money you will with out a doubt know if you want to spend money. And you can’t ask for more than that from a free to play game. What I said at the beginning about not being a Super Hero guy is true and if you enjoy this type of game you don’t have to love SuperHeros to enjoy yourself but it’s probably a bonus if you do.
Tyler Vedo - UPDATE #2 🙄
The game became much more enjoyable as the rate of pop ups to buy offers with irl money has decreased, at least for me. The problem is (and I don’t use irl money, just f2p) the packages to buy with irl money are extremely underwhelming for the price. I hope people really don’t pour money because the deals are extreme ripoffs. I would possibly buy something once a month simply to support the developers and the game because I do enjoy playing this, especially with the alliance I’m in who are really hands on and play everyday. But I can’t buy any offers because it’s really not worth the prices. All and all, the game is really enjoyable for a mobile game. There is a lot to do, and it does take a grind to get up there in level but it’s a game to pass time when bored. For me it’s a 9/10 for content and longevity. Plus the developers update the game often so there’s always something to look forward to.
Update!!: So as I updated my last review to say they decreased the amount of pop ups, it is at an all time high again. Constantly throwing micro transaction offers in your face every single time you open the app. The problem is, it isn’t just one or two, it’s like four or five back to back and it’s mildly annoying. You close one, try to collect your rewards, boom... another one before you can, collect, try to open an orb, boom, another one. And it continues.... pretty much the only annoying thing about playing this game. Other then that, I love the game.
OmegaDrive - Amazing tactical game
In short, this game’s base gameplay is derived heavily from Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. That’s a great thing though. It is significantly more expensive when it comes to the optional in-app purchases. There is incredible polish on all the animations. Fan service accomplished. You will indeed have fun with the gameplay and collecting and strengthening your collection. The raids are unique and I know that the developers have stated they are trying to make them a little more forgiving when it comes to the level of participation a guild needs to reach full tier rewards. The developers are definitely listening as I have received two surveys in the short time since it’s US debut. I’m not going to nix a star just because it’s a little expensive and the reward system is a little flawed (for instance one recent even relied on two sets of RNG to get decent rewards - which is far from desirable). I think this game will get way better with time. Better to get in on the fun sooner than later.
Update: it’s amazing to see all the additions over the year. I compare this game a lot to Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, the developers communicate better and are more agile than the team supporting SWGOH. If I had one ask, it would be for alternate skins for the characters. And battle damage would be nice, not just posture changes when low health.
THEDESTROYEROFBERF - Good game. Bad business model
Developers: Don’t listen to all these bad reviews. You made, and are maintaining a great game with a lot of potential. Most of them are complaining do to the fact that they aren’t any good at the game, because they don’t take the time to work out the math on what makes a team good. That said; they do make reasonable complaints about your strategy for paying the bills. Most of your players are marvel fans, not free to play game fans, so you can keep your player base more easily than other games like yours. Maybe, you could add a feature to allow your players to watch commercials in place of spending money for currency, equipment, and character shards. This way you can take some pressure off of your ‘direct purchase’ dependency, allowing you to give more for less, without effecting your bottom line. We (your players) are willing to make you money, and be loyal customers, but most of us do not have enough to justify spending ANY amount of money on a ftp game. Even those that do, can’t afford what o asking. It seems like a small few are paying an arm and a leg fo all of s to play. No fair. Maybe, give a monthly subscription option that gives more frugal players an appealing option. Give hem all the characters, while still forcing them to level like everyone else or something. SOMETHING BESIDES DIRECT PURCHASE REVENUE PLEASE. Thank you for your time. Take care.
LeonDaLion - I’ve been playing for two years
This game has kept me entertained for a while. They keep adding new characters and teams, they’ve been consistent with delivering new content, and they keep it interesting. I have invested a few dollars in the game just because I want to support it, and occasionally there are deals to be had with shards.. certain one-off deals, for instance, 50 shards of a decent character for $1.99. Otherwise, I’m not the type that’s going to shell out $15 at a time, or more. Throw more reasonable deals at me and I’ll spend more. Like Costco. lol. Volume. Anyhow, I like the alliance feature a lot. I’ve found a good one that expects you to keep up to a certain point but doesn’t expect it to be like a second job. We progress together and we don’t go insane in the process. There are all sorts of alliances, some have really high expectations and some don’t. Mine is somewhere in the middle. Favorite characters in the game: Minn-erva, Black Bolt, Phoenix, Ultron, Thor, Hela, Black Panther, Star Lord, Magneto, Symbiote Spider-Man, Venom, Shuri, Captain Marvel, War Machine... I love finding other combinations of characters to use that syngergize outside of their intended teams. Favorite teams, though, outside of that: Asgardians, Hydra (for war defense), Symbiotes (can’t wait for Anti-Venom to complete it), and Power Armor. Great game.
Wrekeets - Newest Update Breaks Your Game
I’ve had this game for quite some time and always enjoyed it. You failed to product test the newest ISO-8 update however. After downloading the new patch, I attempted to open your app no less than five times and was met with the exact same result. Upon loading to roughly ninety percent at the start screen, the game attempts to do its typical download of updated content (something which I fail to understand why it could never be included with the downloaded update). I am unable to move around the normal menus while it is downloading and mid download it opens the completely unavoidable iso-8 tutorial which shoehorns players into that menu. After being forced to continue, the downloading of updates freezes indefinitely and then the load screen is stuck in a forever loop while trying to open the iso-8 tutorial which is literally the very content downloading. This persists assuredly indefinitely but for sure more than five to ten minutes. There are always quirks with your app and any other apps after an update and this should’ve been tested for and should be addressed. Beyond that, there are the obligatory issues that never seem to be addressed or fixed at each update. From simplistic changes such as the level cap randomly dictating that some players can not progress beyond a particular level and others can. The level max is pointless if I can’t even reach it because I’ve maxed out at a point that is obviously not the true max level.
CaptainItachi - Best mobile game ever
I’ve been playing this game since the beta phase. And I’m still playing it because they are always putting out new characters and events. I love building teams in raid and Blitz. There is always a top meta game/meta team but I find lots of enjoyment in using my whole roster in blitz, raid and Wars! I’m free to play and may be one of the few grateful for all the whales and other pay-to-play players. They mean I can play this game for free. Am I a few steps behind them, yes. But I’m cool with that, they spent lots of money because they can’t wait. I do all my daily achievements and play in events and know what Base point I need for good rewards in blitz so I honestly am in great shape. If you want to be free to play and are incapable of planning and doing resource management, the. This game is not for you. But most of my guild mates are F2P like me and loooove this game. The only complaint I have is the the red star promotions which seem arbitrary. I’ve seen some reviews crying a river about money, bugs, or devs not caring. Bunch of crybabies that are self-entitled. The devs are working and listening to the community, since I started they have made so many good changes. I have no issue with the money end side of things, and bugs get sorted out. Love marvel comics, love this game that portrays them so well.
Kimmijan - Best game I think I’ve ever played
I have to say that this may be the best game I’ve ever played on a smart phone. I have never consistently and for this long logged into another game to play something so phenomenal. While there are options to purchase different character shards, orbs, and other fun things, I’ve never felt pressured to do this. And I think it’s a good trade off considering that I’ve never seen an ad displayed on this game. The artwork is awe-inspiring and the sound effects are on point. 👌🏻 There is a brilliant team of talented people who work on this game to bring new events and creative game play that feels very cinematic.
I only have one complaint and that is that over the last two days when the game is loading it gets stuck at 42%. I have to restart several times to get in. I have confidence that this will hopefully be worked out, but I have to admit that I’m rather sad. I’ve made this game part of my daily routine especially since COVID-19 has put everything else on hold.
Overall, brilliant game and I would happily recommend it to anyone else (and have) to make room for on their phone. I just hope that the loading issue can be resolved quickly. 😊
Geoheegan - Was a great game, now nauseating
This game was amazingly fun and utterly addicting and enticed you to spend money on the offers, probably more than your wallet really allowed fore. But they just implemented a new patch to the gameplay where the camera zooms in on every characters movements at 3x speed. This in turn, causes the camera to jump around the screen at high speed and inducing motion sockness rather quickly, making the game nearly unplayable. This xoom to emphasize the characters abilities and attack CGI was originally only during normal speed gameplay, but now it’s on ALL speeds. Not only does it induce nausea and motion sickness, but now it’s also incredibly hard to track what’s actually happening with the progression of the battle or change to a different priority target. You can’t play at normal speed when playing Arena, Raid, or War modes because you only get 5 minutes to complete the matchup or you’ll timeout, so you’re forced to play at 3x speed, but this new system wrecked it. They took an amazing game and literally ruined it, by trying to improve something that wasn’t broken and was already performing beyond well. I spent quite a bit of money on the offers and would’ve continued, but now I can’t play or enjoy the game anymore. Way to ruin a good thing devs. At least give us the option in settings to tuen that ridiculousness off. I mean, it’d only be the sensible thing to do. You gave us the option to turn off alliance invites... good bye fun time waster.
King Steverino - Great game, awful management
I just want to begin by saying that this game could be amazing and that I started out so hopeful it was going to be everything I ever was looking for in a Marvel game. The character design is absolutely amazing. The character kits aren’t always the way I would make them, but that’s totally to be expected; different people have different ideas and that’s okay too. But the way the treat their consumer is the worst out of any game I’ve ever played and it’s not even close (and as a gamer, I’ve played a ton of games). If you don’t shell out thousands of dollars a month they literally could not care less about your opinion. They recently had two bugs, both of which accomplished the same thing: they made a challenging piece of content, that granted daily rewards, significantly easier. For one, they said people could keep their progress and, for the other, they said they’re rolling it back (you lose your progress). The only difference? The first one required you to buy several offers for their newest character to exploit, the other one didn’t. Countless examples just like this. It is the worst relationship I’ve ever had with a developer and it’s a shame because I want to like this game so badly. If you’re thinking of playing, please, please don’t. It’s not worth the hours of frustration over some of the most petty decision making I’ve ever witnessed. Save yourself the headache and play literally any other game.
Another iPhone Gamer - Could of easily been a 5 star game.
Due to this game always being super buggy, and since the last update that keeps me from using WiFi. I am going to have to give this (1 Star). I’ve been playing this game for almost a year. I’m almost at max level with almost the whole roster of characters unlocked. So yes I’ve enjoyed it. Can this be fun? Absolutely it can be, and super addicting too. But the devs are lazy and greedy. Also the lack of customer support is frustrating and disappointing, as they will often ignore most issues. This game will mess up any character development with serious lag issues that will cause the game to do things that you may not want to. And resources are very scarce, unless you decide to pay the overpriced pay to win offers. Even if you decide to pay for stuff. Beware as this game seems to bait you into using your resources without you wanting to. When there are sales, drop rates become nonexistent.
So if you don’t mind using up all your data due to game breaking bugs that (won’t let you use WiFi) on a data hungry app. This game may be for you. If you don’t mind losing valuable resources due to buggy issues that don’t get addressed, then play, it’s a lot of fun. If you like making in app purchases that have no value. Then by all means you won’t have any issues. Until this game becomes stable, and has the game breaking bugs fixed. I will give it the 5 stars it deserves. Sad to say it has to get 1 star.
Joshuadwll - Could be 5 stars
First off, I absolutely love this game! I grew up with these heroes, and not I enjoy sharing that love with my children. The rare characters often are only available through purchase, or require an outrageous prerequisite to aquire. While I completely understand that it’s a fantastic way to make TONS of profit from fans who spend money to play (like myself), I would be much happier with the experience if the developer’s were more forgiving with the timetable for which the character events are available. Give us paying customers a chance to make it through a pay period so we can have the funds to accomplish the tasks required. Maybe give us a way to reserve promotions for a Later time, like a raincheck, otherwise it can be incredibly frustrating! I NEVER spent money on mobile games before, and now I have invested more money in this game than every other form of gaming media I own combined, and that speaks volumes for how amazing I find what they have created. That having been said, when I can’t take advantage of a promotion because of it’s short availability, I feel unappreciated as a customer. The game deserves a review that ends on a positive note, so I’ll say this. Hands down my favorite game that has ever been created for the mobile platform. Amazing!
MackOX - If you want to be competitive, prepare to spend thousands!
No seriously. This game is a pure cash grab. There is no balance or strategy to move up the leaderboards. Want to know the secret. Spend, spend, spend! New character coming out that will upset and replace the current meta? Better get a head start on farming that character by paying for the two $50 packs that net you a portion of the shards to unlock and a bunch of orbs with a “chance” to hit a big one and get the other half. And that’s just for 2-4 stars. You have to max them out to 7 stars because at some point, that character will be a requirement to unlock the next meta-must-have. And then you have to gear them up. But you probably don’t have the materials and/or gold to max them out. No worries, you can spend some more money to fill in the gaps.
This cycle never ends. Free to play players? Sorry, you’re drop fed stuff over months to years unless you’re really lucky and manage to get some great shards from orb openings. Bottom line, you have to Pay to Win in this game. Arena (PVP) is dominated by the exact same team comps. And you probably don’t have Black Bolt, Phoenix, Mister Sinister and Ultron because that would require you to have bought into a ton of other characters that were all low drop rate events that required money to get the characters to the 7 stars needed to max out the next set of required characters to get to the ones you really wanted.
Grumpy275 - We want to love this game
I’ve been playing this game for almost a year and have have spent some money on the game, maybe $100, because I was really enjoying the game. But right now I would take back that money if I could. Right now the game is in a bad spot and the devs don’t really seem to care. There are multiple bottlenecks that stop free to play players from progressing quickly unless they spend money. For one of the game modes, blitz, new players are pitted against people that have been playing this game since it first came out and there is no way to compete. In that game new characters will come out and unless you are a top player or spend thousands of dollars to get ahead it’s almost not even worth playing. Gear and training materials are difficult to get so you hoard those materials and can’t level up your whole roster like you want to. Any time a bug comes out that benefits the player it is fixed within hours but bugs that mess up the game or hinder the player are left unchecked for multiple months or longer. There are countess other issues currently and the entire player base really wants this game to be good but the devs really need to step it up. If you are interested in learning more before playing this game check out the marvel strike force subreddit or watch some of the youtubers that play this game. We just want it to be fun again.
Excall - Player unfriendly game and developer.
This game had potential. The first couple months of playing are fun, and some modes like fear the darkness are unique, but the developers are so greedy that it’s not worth playing. Almost all the progression after a certain point is stuck behind a massive paywall. The mechanics and decisions made by the developers are very anti-player. This includes but is not limited to the controversial Red Star system, the absurd superior uniques for gear once you reach G12+, the abysmal gold income compared to the insane amount of gold needed to do anything, the stealth buffs to raid nodes and bosses that constantly make content you already have on farm more difficult for the same rewards, blitz...etc. Even PvP has a dysfunctional matchmaking system which punishes alliances for being active and winning. If your alliance does well you will be matched against alliances with 30% more power and 10+ levels higher with way more stark tech. They want you to spend resources and money on boosts and refreshes to be able to compete but it’s all a sham. No matter how hard you try you will get the same rewards at the end of the season based on your alliance level, not skill or strategy. The game is notoriously full of bugs and connection issues after every update. The one positive is the presentation is very appealing, but don’t be fooled. This game will frustrate you to no end and ask you to sell your soul for mediocrity.
eternallyNot - Good game, greed frustrating me
Hooked me early on. Enjoyed variety of things to do without overload I felt attempting to play Summoners Souls (?) and the like. Felt like this would require less time. Seems to suffer (my opinion) from the usual issues. Comparing team power suddenly becomes pointless. Your team can have a team power of 2000+ who you are fighting and yet the other team wipes the floor destroying everyone and you are lucky if you take down one of them. Plenty of defenders of this by fanboys, but if certain character abilities, rank, tier level make them much more powerful than the norm, but do not reflect well in the power level. Don’t think that’s is the way things should be personally. Fans will say, you need to play characters A, B, C and can point you to probably Wikis explaining the REAL info. I shouldn’t have to do that. Sorry, just my opinion. And where is the fun in having a huge selection of characters if the solution is just to play a certain few to excel? Balanced teams should be designed such that they have an advantage over stuff like 2 tanks and all brawlers or whatever. Anyway, going to keep playing for fun, just frustrated it gets progressively harder to progress/unlock due to design. Also, can’t prove it, but after early release, really seems the RNG has been nerfed for some.
kingryan1995 - This game is like a second job
Game is great when you first start out very intoxicating but once the newbie free stuff runs out it’s bottleneck bottleneck bottleneck the devs don’t test new content and when updates come game is always buggy and freezes when new characters are given boosted chances red stars orbs which is a type of boost even if they are listed as there they are potentially not there and to put into perspective the game only gives you 7 orbs a week and each and with this system you are likey to pull duplicate pulls, on tops of bugs and the stupid red star system you have to fight the devs they purposely move legendary characters around so you don’t have time to farm required toons for said legendary and they manipulate the drops so certain toons don’t show up in in game currency stores and the drop rates on campaign are manipulated as well and last but certainly not least, THE OFFERS I’ve never played a more pay2win game in my entire life no you don’t have to pay to play but if your not bottlenecked on training mats red stars or gold they will sell you it to you for there “90% off” please don’t fall for the game like I did I’ve played it for almost 3 years now and I’ve just barely scratched the surface of crap that players complain about every week get out while you can. Oh yea I forgot to mention he fanbase is currently in talks of going on a spending strike FOR THE SECOND TIME NOW
Dimel3agdan - Whales will love this
Being a continuous player of this game for almost 1,000 days now, I found myself grinding for long parts of the day to collect materials and gold to rank up previously released characters. My roster has built to where I only need one character (doom) that is acquired through a game mode called “dark dimension 4”. I have spent copious amounts of dollars trying to keep up with the newest characters, which is my fault for supporting a game that is “free to play”, but somehow turned into “pay to win”. If you are looking for a game that is highly competitive and fun, this is it. But player beware, this game turns into a pay to win for you at a particular part in the game. Scopley’s prices are so outrageous, and their ways of earning the top tier rewards forces you to spend large amounts of money to get close to top tier rewards. They also tend to release at least 4 new characters almost every month that not only cost about $25 at the least, it also drains all your materials and gold to rank them up. That’s where they throw offers at you to buy and restock. Or you could just grind for another month to gain a fraction back. The game is very fun and was greater before money started becoming an issue, but if you have the time to stay on your phone and don’t have a job, I’m sure you can grind your way to the top.
Nykaza - Another unethical cash grab game
Yes, I know...”mobile games depend on revenue since they are free to play” ....blah blah blah. These games....ALL OF THEM from marvel strike force to raid shadow legends to Star Wars got to that Disney game are DESIGNED to FRUSTRATE players into spending. I can’t understand why stupid fanboys defend this UNETHICAL practice, nor do I understand how anyone could justify spending hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to play a game that is nowhere near as much fun as console or computer games that do NOT use frustration to generate revenue.
I mean, think about it. Sure a challenge is nice, a lot of the fun from gaming is overcoming a challenge. But these games do not present us with challenges. They present us with insurmountable “challenges” that aren’t challenging AT ALL. You can either a. Be patient and wait months to become strong enough to beat the “challenge” or b. Buy everything necessary to beat the “challenge” sooner. The “challenge” itself doesn’t involve thought or strategy, it involves building toons high enough to win. That’s it.
Anyone who got suckered into playing these games (including myself) should just save all the money you might waste on these games, buy a console like ps4 or xbox one, and experience how much better games can be when the developers primary focus is actually MAKING THE GAME FUN FOR PLAYERS rather than FRUSTRATING PLAYERS INTO SPENDING.
j007ma - 1078 days and thinking about quitting
As someone who has spent a lot of time and decent amount of money, it’s unfortunate that I’m about done with Scopely’s nonsense. The previous game overlord, Foxnext, had similarly overpriced offers and glitch problems but Scopely has taken it to new levels. The glitches are out of hand now and the lack of updating seasonal milestone rewards is just the tip of the iceberg. Furthermore, the short supply of mats to level up characters while simultaneously releasing new characters at an unprecedented rate is strangling the game. With that said, they’re releasing a few upcoming characters like Silver Surfer that clearly show the likelihood of a major power jump and forced irrelevance for many decent older characters.
RTA mode is also one example of a horrible waste of time that creates a paywall forcing players to pony up a minimum per month or be forever behind to a point that they’ll never be competitive at obtaining necessary gear. There’s a lot of gripes here, I know, but ones that many longterm players will understand. If you’re new or thinking of playing, take a pass on this game. The fun of obtaining the characters you love isn’t enough. Discord alliance chat is one of the reasons why I’ve lasted as long as I have. Scopely continues to rake it in due to their casino-like tactics but someday it will catch up with them.
karasu1989 - A thought out well marvel gem
I personally don’t play much mobile outside of pinball and hearthstone but I’ve always been a huge marvel fan as a whole. I have tried some of the marvel games out there, over all, there was way to much to manage with some bugs or some lack luster of the execution. But I must say that this is a well thought out and polished game with crisp visuals and a decent size campaign with extras on the side. It doesn’t feel over baring like I must do a million things everyday to get the full rewards and the auto wins help for getting materials or if you don’t have enough time. They have a nice of an ever-growing base of characters, a mix of iconic and non-iconic. The only thing I would suggest is maybe a fourth skill that is manually usable during battles. Over all, I have really enjoyed this game and will continue to do so.
P.s. and I’m sure you guys get request for “ this and that” character. My only one character I’d love to see is gambit. He’s always been a bit of an over looked character cuz the “unspoken” face of x-men is more of wolverine, Jean grey and a couple of others. But Gambit has always been my favorite since I’ve been a kid. Ty for your time reading this.
TheUltimateAppReviewer - great game
I started this game with pretty high expectations, and it definitely met them for the first couple days. The graphics and mechanics are fun, and the community is relatively friendly. With an abundance of materials, it felt good to speed through the first 20 or so levels, and it felt like the game would continue to give me what I needed to train and gear up my characters. I spent my over 500k amounts of gold and my training materials relatively carelessly, until I hit level 30ish. I ran out of gold and training materials, and in order to equip one piece gear to my same few characters that I started out with, I had to spend all my campaign energy. I found myself frustrated at the game, thinking it was another play to win. But once I got past the roadblock of level 30-38 or so, the game started picking up again, and I was enjoying it more than ever, once I started picking up other characters (there’s no need to pay in this game, I did not, the deals are definitely not worth your money). Like a lot of the other reviews say, this is not your typical pay to win marvel game. I recommend this game to everyone who’s willing to be a little patient for a couple days.
yuceldimbirine - Struggle
It is quite a struggle to be playing this game. The main thing they have going for them is the Marvel IP. The animations and art are beautiful to see and gameplay seems like it calls for clever thinking and strategizing. However is all this worth still playing a game that has become such a tough pill to swallow? They have gotten more and more restrictive. The tactical gameplay has given way to “cookie-cutter” teams that don’t function properly unless you have invested all in into all five characters - no substitutions allowed! There is a constant time sink that is not fun, but feels like a chore - I mean I like games, I don’t mind grinding for hours if it is enjoyable, I’ve done that before on other games, just not this one. The game also is riddled with bugs, issues, mistakes. They will address these in a split second if it benefits the players, but if it hurts us, it clearly isn’t a priority. Asking the support desk for help is also a lost cause... Their bosses have their hands grasped so tightly around support staff members’ necks (it’s actually something else but let’s keep it PG and say neck) that they are scared to fix anything and reimburse lost resources. There is a template response that you get that thanks me and “assures” me that my concern will be passed on to the developers. I don’t know what to do with this game anymore. I had quit once before, maybe it’s time to do that again
GodsPaladin - Must spend money
I have been playing this game for years. I am the leader of a group. But it is painful obviously that you cannot do well without spending money. And they just keep changing the game. The only way to judge a team is by their power level which is garbage, I routinely get beaten by groups with 100k less power than me. And if they have Ultimus or Phoenix you might as well quit the fight as they are so over powered it doesn’t matter who you bring. But let me give you an example I have an Iron fist that I have been looking for 1 part to raise their tier for over a year. It doesn’t come in drops, can’t get it from orbs, and I found 1 of the multiple I need. But I can buy the exact amount I need for $29 in one of their packages. Without that part my team isn’t strong enough to finish further missions that I need to beat to get more parts so I can do other missions. So bottom line, you will not beat this game or even be in the contention for it unless you are willing to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on upgrades. One of my players even did a test using their red star generator to see how much it would cost to buy 1 team up to all maxed red stars. It would have been over a million dollars. I understand that the game is here to make money. But if you put in the time, effort and strategy you will never get to the top tiers of this game.
davidjbach - Fix This Game
While I generally enjoy MSF, the game has gotten worse exponentially over the past 6-8 months. There are too many bottlenecks that make progressing in game way too slow: gold, training mats, RNG dependent red stars, and even gear. RTA is mind numbingly boring, and the matchmaking is horrendous. Needing 5-6 red stars on a toon for end game content is ridiculous, especially because the only way to get them is through RNG dependent orbs that 99% of the time are dupes. The arena mechanic is outdated, and requires you to have to be on for an hour before payout to try your hand at getting lucky enough to “chain” your way forward extra spots. The blitz sim was the best feature they most recently added, however it caused more problems than it solved. While it generally decreases screen time in game (subsequently RTA absolutely trashed this as it’s a long game mode with more in game time), the scores are now all inflated making it ridiculously hard to get even top 1% rewards without setting timers to run a rotation every 2 hours. Scopely support is dreadful as well. I haven’t had a positive interaction with them since it was ran by FN, and most recently they wouldn’t compensate resources I used on a knowingly broken game mode. The only way to keep up in this game with the exorbitant amount of new toons they release is to spend a ton of cash. Something I’m no longer will to do anymore.
Niickie123 - Awesome game slow grind
I’ve been playing this game for about 3 months now and let me tell u if u don’t grind every day you’d definitely fall behind. I don’t mind it since it doesn’t take that long to do the dailies and such. U do have to join an alliance if u want awesome rewards that help out a lot to level up ur heroes. The new war system is pretty cool as well but ur alliance has to coordinate a bit more than in the raids to win cuz trust me u wanna win haha war rewards are were it’s at. The pay out is a bit better than raids. Anyway what I like the most is that it isn’t pay to win. I mean if u wanna spend hundred of dollars just to avoid the grind then go ahead cuz the offers they put up are always to reach a certain team power faster or get a character powered up faster but in the end u can just grind it out and it’ll be the same.
I like this game and I gave it 4 stars just cuz it’s a bit slow in terms of leveling up/powering up.
I’d recommend it tho if u don’t mind the slow grind.
P.S almost forgot to mention if ur expecting certain hero teams(the avengers) to be above everyone else you’ll be disappointed lol there’s a bunch of teams u can create that have better synergy (defenders/city)than other teams u can put together.
Tsarmina887 - Great game, developers tone deaf.
This game is beautifully made, great characters and lots to do. However, over the past year and a half, the developers with FoxNext and Scopely have become increasingly predatory in their usage of real money transactions. There are over 10+ constant bottlenecks for advancement in the game (maybe 3-4 is a reasonable number at most). For new players, there are few if any catch up mechanics. The game system is set up with game modes that lead to the “rich getting richer”. This is not a sustainable game model. It works for a time until the game dies, at which point your cash cow no longer works. I understand a game has to make money and I know there will always be real money whales. But stop actively trying to crush the new players and squeeze them out of your game. Offers in the store are marked as 90% off (except they are listed at the base price that they always are), and often they show an info graphic making orbs appear as though they have characters that they don’t in fact have! The latest and greatest moment happened yesterday when they introduced a 5000 power core daily event (the cost is approximately 60$ per day). In what world is that player friendly? Stop being tone deaf and listen to your players who love this game! Fix the bugs! Fix the constant stream of misinformation in your own blog posts! Fix the predatory practices!
Damon L. - Such a greedy company
It’s ok to charge for things, that’s capitalism. But seriously, even people who spends a hundred thousand (yes there are those!) are still limited in what they can do. That sounds fine on paper right? Rich people spending their way to higher levels, but now compare that with a young kid who just wants to play their favorite hero. No chance. The game is designed to force a specific progression pattern over the long term. There are at least 20 different systems to keep track of, each impacting the other in a mind boggling way.
I enjoy some of the strategy, but there is nothing a person can do to “get better” at the game other than spend money or grind. There’s no creativity, you can’t just pick heroes or villains to build your ideal team that you’ve always dreamed of because they won’t work well together, that’s by design. If it’s not the marketed version of MSF designed teams, which require a longggg amount of play time or a lot of money to obtain, then their synergies and complementary actions don’t work together.
If you want to play, just make a promise to yourself not to buy “just this once”.... you won’t stop, and that’s how it’s designed. Be strong, play for a bit each day, don’t obsess. Or you’ll walk away frustrated and broke, and then come back yet again when a new character is released next week and it starts all over again.
demoore27 - Good game, bad company
The gameplay, graphics, and concept of the game is so much fun. However, the company is only concerned with squeezing every penny out of its fan base, and this directly affects the amount of fun you can actually have. Ready for days and days of not playing the game because you’re trying to farm for new characters and gear with horrendous drop rates? That’s what it takes. And when something goes wrong, the support team gives you canned responses, doesn’t take responsibility, and doesn’t fix the problem. This game could be incredible. Instead, it’s little bits of fun sprinkled into a giant slog of clicking “auto win” on your 15th day of trying to get Captain America until your resources run out and you either have to spend an unreasonable amount of money or go do something else. They tried to charge $100 for a package of five of the worst players in the game. That’s the price of two real, award winning video games! Your customers should spend money because they want to, not because you force them/trick them into doing it. Start caring about and listening to your fan base. It’s possible to make money AND have a fun game for everyone. Improve customer support, and increase drop rates so we can actually play the game. You will make way more money in the long run, and we will be happy. Win/win.
SouthernSeahawk - Great game
I’ve been playing this game pretty much since launch. It’s great. I’m a free to play guy and I’ve probably spent about $5 since launch. It’s honestly pretty fair in the way they operate. Yeah the whales get a lot of perks and characters faster but I’ve got almost every character and I’m pretty stacked now. If you play smart and keep upgrading to good alliances you will rank up at a good rate. Of course there some frustration when you don’t get the orbs you want etc but that’s the case with all these types of games. It’s also a little weird to see Nick Fury and a team of Shield agents demolish everyone else in the Marvel universe but that’s part of the charm. Also when a team you’ve been trying to get comes together it’s a great feeling. I remember how great it was when I got Magneto and the brotherhood of mutants and they were a great synergistic team.
I don’t normally write reviews but after having played this game for so long and still enjoying it I thought I should. If you love Marvel it’s a fun game with a lot of strategy. Just remember if you aren’t paying you have to have patience but you will eventually get to where you want to go.
Jack279438 - Disappointed
I’ve played this game since the first day it came out. It started out as any other game would. Fun at first, grinding to max out the characters you like, etc. Of course they introduced legendary characters which were fun to pursue. Then they introduced legendary characters that needed other legendary characters to unlock. This made it very tough for people to unlock these characters. Next they started introducing people at such a fast rate that you couldn’t upgrade one team before another came out and another legendary for that team in a limited event but you had to have the previous legendary to unlock the new one and you can’t farm that previous legendary so you get stuck while the game keeps moving forward slamming new characters at you while you’re 3 teams behind just trying to keep up. The newest antic of theirs is the money grab. They had the audacity to introduce an event that cost 5000 power cores daily to get the max rewards. Power cores are very hard to come by, but of course, you can buy them with real money. To put into perspective, this would cost about $65 DAILY to get rewards from this event. This is a clear slap in the face for all the players of this game. It used to be fun but not anymore. It feels like a chore playing this game now. Unless you have large amount of cash laying around, you will always be behind in this game.
Bengrimm04 - Potential only goes so far
This game was great for a long time but is now being dragged down by persistent issues. I give some credit that devs do respond to some community concerns but only after repeated screaming about issues. Every release is plagued with some kind of bug as if the designers aren’t actually testing what they release. It’s maddening to see nearly every new character or event release have some kind of problem on the back end or characters not work as advertised in the beginning because of bugs. There are some core elements of the game, like the red star progression system, that the vast majority of the player base has expressed a need to change but over a year later still goes unaddressed or talked about. The last two years have seen the developers make changes only after massive organized outcries from the player base and content creators.
I have played this far longer than any other mobile game that I have tried but too many bugs, a lack of verifiable attention to QA, too many unnecessary resource clogs and forced low quality screen time has severely diminished my enjoyment of this game. I love the property and I am too invested to just quit playing but if it doesn’t turn soon that will no longer be the case. New players should beware.
bluenotej - Developing issues remain unaddressed
Have been playing the game for little over 2 years. In past several months the developers seem to be missing the mark on several key issues and also not addressing issues voiced by the community. Newer and mid-game players are basically screwed and cannot in current form recommend for anyone new to start the game. Catch up mechanics are needed and access to ways of building up characters are much needed(gear, gold, etc). I am unable to build up any of the newer characters to decent enough levels to be playable and they remain on the shelf with no reason to spend money on these characters as would still not be useable. The red star system needs an SOS. Understand the initial idea, though with newer game modes requiring red stars even to enter then there has to be some way of getting them...which is currently basically a lottery system. So if you are lucky, then you may enter, if not, then tough luck and hope you get lucky next time commander. Overall disappointed in developers inability to have a proper growth model for the game and current developer perspective seems quite short-sited. If issues are addressed and can see a way forward am more than willing to change my review to the 4-5 star level where it previously was.
Spiggy Spiggs - Purchases Required
When you first start out this game it can actually be really fun and you can seem to be progressing and growing your team and characters really quickly but after a while (I would say around the level forty mark) the game becomes incredibly difficult to progress in and you can’t really do much without spending money. Any new characters you want seem impossible to get without spending a ton of money. You basically get stuck in the game and the only way to continue to move forward is to make purchases. The drop rate on any of the orbs in the store is absolutely appalling and should be considered robbery. Orbs that can wipe out your entire stash of power cores will give you materials you can buy in the shop for a couple thousand gold and three to six shards for characters you either already have or require hundreds of shards to unlock it is incredibly impossible to get any large amount of shards from the orbs unless you fancy spending a ton of money on power cores (this seems to be one of the only real ways to get power cores). This game was fun and quickly turned into a scam where purchases are required to advance in the game even the slightest bit I do not recommend this game marvel has better games that won’t trap you into making purchases
Leon Brawd - Faulty arena mechanics
You can play this game if you like collecting/training heroes games. One star is for arena and real time arena. So called “matching” and arena mechanics are faulty, and, I afraid, by design. Don't go out of your mind trying to comprehend how an opponent that is a few dozens of thousands(!!!!) points weaker than your team, beats you every single time... There is no way in the world it can ever happen unless the whole “strength points” system is faulty by poor programming or by design, to get you mad and paying real $$ trying to improve your heroes. Or how your team being “matched” in real time arena with a team that is way stronger that yours (what kind of matching is it anyway), and this strong team is tearing your heroes apart in seconds. Or you being “matched” with an equally strong team, but wait... you are killing the opponent’s heroes... but they come back again and again, almost dead heroes are not falling dead, still standing, healing fast and you are losing in a way it shouldn’t be happening. Calm down, because, I afraid, the majority of so called arena opponents are not even real, but look more like artificial teams with coded enhancements. Why? Again, to get you mad and feverishly spending money to develop your heroes. Take my advise - in any game do not spend money, at all. Just play as it goes, until you will get enough of it and delete it.
Akamu&Syrinx - A good game at first.
I’ve been playing this game since it’s release. It’s actually great with its tactics structure and the little bits of story and character interaction.
Over time, they bombard you more and more with micro transaction offers that don’t really pay off well. Also they favor those who spend money but only to a point. The drop rates for things like character shards or important upgrade components are terrible. You could spend a week’s worth of energy and spend the in game currency and get nothing far more often than maybe one or two things. This makes it so investing in a character you like takes many months without spending money. Though the tactics are good the roster is heavily imbalanced. The effective characters are hidden behind immense paywalls or several character prerequisites. With how difficult it is to acquire a character needed to get someone you actually like or someone who is useful, it could take potentially years. And this game is only 3 years old.
The members of the top rated team recently all quit because Scopley failed to recognize and address the issues.
I used to play this everyday being a big marvel fan. Now I barely play it a couple times a week since I get next to nothing from it even if I were to play it daily and sink money into it.
swiftmeddy - Fun, but problematic.
The game itself is fun. Graphics are good. I feel like I don’t have to spend a lot of time on the game if I have zero expectations with progression. Even with some expectation on progression, the time spent isn’t insane. That being said, what kills the enjoyment out of the game is how scopely and their money grabbing tactics run. They take advantage of people in every way shape and form to acquire more money from their player base. Releasing characters so fast that even content creators in this game who have been playing since launch can’t keep up. The pricing is horrendous, when I first started there were micro transactions of 50 shards of a character for $1 USD. Wow. That’s awesome, considering with raid: shadow legends, where I can from would be $30 just for a chance at an epic or legendary. They put little thought and effort into making the events enjoyable, they rarely fix things that hurt players, but if it hurts their profits it is fixed within the hour. It shows that they don’t have the player base in mind. I assume they just want to continue to try and attract new players instead of keeping their old ones. But why not both? It’s sad to see how bad they’ve been doing, especially with such an active subreddit who’s willing to give good feedback and ideas.
Gnarly Apple Pie - Going Downhill
As of today, I’ve been playing this game for 788 days and I can say this game has been slowly turning into a game not engineered for your “enjoyment” but to make money for Scopely. It seems since Scopely purchased this game, the player base who loves this game and is inspired to help the developers perfect this game, has been increasingly shut out by not taking our recommendations and not listening to us. I’d say this game is still fun from the amount of characters available to the graphics and character design. The game modes are more of a mixed bag. RTA is trash because you literally just auto-play without even paying attention. This is a simple fix by just making it a competitive win based mode. War is very fun but definitely needs an update. Arena is awful because there are shotgun glitches that mess up your rank and it’s not that “fun”. Blitz is now auto which is easier than before. Raids are kind of fun but a grind. Overall, I personally wouldn’t recommend new players getting into the game because it’s definitely a money grab and I think Scopely is running the game into the ground. Once they start listening to their player base and start using logic for their game mode design, then I’d recommend it again and put a higher star rating.
onesadboii - Read before you download
Never thought I would be leaving such a horrible review but with the current state of the game, enough is enough. I’ve played the game for 1,000 plus days and sure every game goes thru it’s stages of ups and downs but this is kind of silly at this point. On the surface, this game seems fun and you can see the potential however the current bugs and constant bottlenecks make the game unplayable and moreso unenjoyable. You may read other reviews and may want to give it a go but trust me, you will never catch up unless you pour thousands and thousands of dollars into the game. Sure, you can play as some of your favorite heros and villains but if you are competitive, this game is not for you in its current state. A question to the reader of this review...what is the point of coming out with new characters if you cannot farm them for months/years after their initial release? Even if you unlock a new character, they will be irrelevant with their power level to make any difference. More food for thought for the reader of this, there have been meta characters released during my time playing this game that you (the new player) will not be able to unlock/counter. Good luck competing against god tier level characters that are unavailable for you. Such a shame because the game used to be so much fun...
Naleth - Definitely just out to make cash
I have never left a bad review before, but this game deserves it right now. I’ve played this game for months, and I may still do so for a bit to see if they change their ways, but I wouldn’t recommend a single new person to it right now. The game play is fun, but the developers use every trick and unethical practice in the book to try and get money of out of you including outrageous prices, moving the goal post on how to unlock characters (i.e. making the ways to get them harder without notice or misleading the community to think the requirements are going to be lower so people spend more before they announce the actual requirements), and intentionally keeping the community in the dark about upcoming changes to try and get more money out of them. They have now twice put out expensive sales for characters followed by releasing an easy way to unlock them a week later with no prior notice in order to get as much money of people as possible. There is a consistent pattern of trying to make a buck not caring if they screw the player base. So, in spite of the gameplay being decent, I could never recommend this to new players right now and I will not spend another cent in the game unless I see a change in their behavior.
LeeCane - Bugs and load times
This game had issues, but they would get fixed pretty quick and you’d get a bonus for dealing with it, once they fixed it. The new company has pushed through many different sales and promos, but since they took over if you use a team and succeed but your team needs healing, the exact same health bars from your weakened team will show up in your saved managed teams, until you choose them from the menu and then they show what they actually are. This issue has been there day 1 of their takeover and they can’t seem to fix it or notice. Load times are worse than ever especially opening up the game. I have a new iPhone pro and it still takes forever to load. A lot of anomaly errors mid fight, where it needs to restart the app and it wastes your energy. Beasts basic attack doesn’t have a movement animation. If you’re playing in the house on wifi and you walk outside the your cell phone data won’t transition and take over and allow you to play. It freezes, so you have to restart the app. Hela’s is supposed to summon a minion for every Asguardian that dies, Does not happen all the time, only rarely. A lot more issues, but that’s enough for now. When they work on these I’ll update review.
Kavalier13 - Fun Game - Terrible Customer Service
I don’t typically write reviews, but for this game I am going to make an exception. I will start off by saying that, yes, this is an incredibly fun game for a mobile game. Even with the god awful monetization of basically everything, you can enjoy yourself as a free to play account. Over the course of 1,000+ days, I have not been free to play though. I’m probably what you would call a dolphin. I have spent more than I probably should have on a game that I know will no longer exist when Scopely finally turns off the server. However, I will no longer be spending anything beyond time on this game. With the introduction of battle pass, I bought the premium version instantly, finding it a good value. Then comes this week’s objectives, one of which is using a character I do not have and, more importantly, literally cannot have before the objective expires. I put in a support ticket questioning this, since I bought the battle pass premium upgrade with the expectation of being able to do it. Being told that further gating PAID content and making it impossible to complete was “by design” was the last straw. Tone-deaf canned responses simply don’t cut it when I consider the thousands of dollars I’ve put in this game. I will continue to play, but going forward, my wallet is closed.
REClarksssss - Technical Issues Make Inequities
The most recent update released the most powerful character in the game, silver surfer. Due to some glitch, some users who purchased the character received a much higher rank Silver Surfer than others who purchased the exact same package. This is hugely unfair and needs to be corrected, and not with some arbitrary orb shard gift or in-game currency. You need to correct the imbalance. Everyone who bought the same offer should have the same number of shards and everyone who didn’t buy it yet should be able to purchase those same number of shards at the same price. Either remove shards from those who benefited from the glitch, or make those same number of shards available to everyone.
This is insane how expensive it is to stay competitive in this game when technical issues are constant. The update also broke ALL raids. Impacting completion and rank. Another issue that makes gameplay frustrating is the phantom boost icons. Enemies will show an icon indicating they have a dodge boost, but it’s not real. This impacts decisions on who to attack and it’s really getting frustrating to constantly guess what is real and what is not.
In short. Fix the game’s technical issues and the inequities they cause. You need to address Silver Surfer shards specifically and immediately.
6B10 - Needs improvements
I’ve been playing this game since launch, log in everyday, and for the most part it’s fun to play otherwise I wouldn’t have logged in for the last 1000+ days. The problem is currently there are too many bottlenecks in the game. Not enough gold or training materials to level all the characters you have or the new characters that get released. There’s not enough gear pieces to go around to gear up all those characters, especially in the later gear levels where you need thousands of pieces. There’s no catch up mechanic for new players. Red star promotions are frustrating because everything is RNG based and we don’t receive enough currency from events or login to promote characters we actually want to upgrade. There used to be good real money offers in the game that were actual “micro transactions“ now they’re all “macro transactions” and horribly overpriced. I’d consider myself to be a dolphin or someone who occasionally spends money, and I’ve scaled back quite a bit. And I haven’t even touched on the bugs in the game, which are numerous. It’s a meme at this point. I still play everyday, but I won’t reward this game by spending money. When these things get addressed, I’ll update the review and rating.
Scopley=greed - If you don’t have it already play something else
MSF is a game I have played since global launch and if I could go back in time I would smack myself in the face and throw my own phone in the trash just to stop myself from downloading it. This game is incredibly expensive and yet full of bugs. So many bugs that there were 5 or more in the past week alone. We are just beta testers to a greedy company that doesn’t spend any money on quality control or customer service. Cheating is not only accepted but encouraged by scopley. Game modes are repetitive and boring just so screen time numbers increase. Scopley is a predatory company that preys on their customers and couldn’t care less about them. It is so bad and so greedy that I will never play another title scopley makes under any circumstances ever again. I understand games need to make money but, if you don’t spend thousands of dollars a month this game passes you by. Recently a post where someone spent $39,000 in 3 months and still couldn’t catch up so he just quit. To each their own but why start now if you need $40k to just get to even? I still play because I enjoy the interactions with my alliance particularly in a time of Covid where interaction is lower than usual. Once that ends there is a great chance that I will be quitting this game.
UMYGCF - Don’t spend be F2P
This game is fun and hits those gambling addicts perfectly. But I started almost a year ago and the money put in doesn’t feel well spent. The worst part is they have added two separate monthly passes. On top of that they now they are starting to lock character unlocks behind these monthly passes. I spent hundreds on the silver surfer unlock and pass and will still be just 10 shards short of upgrading him. The game is painfully frustrating because of RNG and P2W mechanics. Two monthly subscriptions is predatory. I think paying for the VIP rewards of one should give them for the other.
They continue to have bugs such as improper shard rewards on events and not updating the increased drop rates they claim. They make no effort to change things the player base desires such as red star availability and resource limitations that have been created with game expansion. Such as inadequate amounts of gold and inability to gain major characters through game content (ex. Emma Frost).
I’ve spent more on this game then anything in the past. Even subscription service games I played for years. It’s frustrating. I will likely not be spending another dime on this game and will eventually just quit once the great players of my alliance can’t persuade me to stay anymore.
lethlnjektn - Newest update killed a great game.
Before this update this was a 5 Star game. I left wwe SuperCard permanently for it. However since the update, and I am far from alone in this... Many many many errors and unplayable moments have happened. I myself have been in contact with support for days... Going into a week soon. I have tried on both my iPad and iPhone is broken. I can't I lost 900 cores and only intended on using 450 in the first place. 900 cost around 12$ to buy... So there's that. Every game mode constantly freezes, raids are literally unplayable. Arena seems to be mostly working which is something I guess. Then today I'm about to receive my 15 Loki shards to upgrade his level. Never got them. I've logged in over 340 days in a row...I don't expect perfection every minute every day. And they're usually good about doing the "sorry our game was broke here's extra stuff for those affected, thanks for patience". But this time is something bigger. I'm leaving this review and done playing now. Only checking emails for fair compensation for a game I've loved for everyday of basically the last year. At the very least I'd like my cores refunded so I can use them elsewhere. Good luck to the support and dev team members... You need it. As I said this was a 5 Star game it is literally unplayable at this point.
mattdj1985 - Too time consuming and pricy.
Used to be fun but it’s really gone downhill ever since Scopely took over. After the addition of Real Time Arena (AKA Real Time Auto) a game mode no one asked for the game has now become way too time consuming for those trying to stay competitive. If you want to be the best you better be prepared to login like 20+ times a day, put in at least 6 hours daily and spend about $100 a week. Recently they have started to put up a giant paywall making it impossible for those who are light spenders or free play to compete. The paywall is evident in the battle pass and new character releases. For example if you want the new best character that comes out you will be paying $50 to unlock the character. Sound worth it? It’s not because after this new character’s event you can plan on waiting 6+ months before being able to farm that character up to a good enough rank. I could literally go on and on about the negatives of this game. Too many to list. I’d highly recommend people to avoid this game at all cost though. After 660 days of playing I’ll be removing the game this week from my phone. It’s just too time consuming and expensive. I wish they would go back to being fun and less time/money focused but Scopely is quite predatory so they won’t change.
Saketi3 - Stay Away
New developer in the past couple months and they have turned a fun game into something that couldn’t be more pay to play. Every patch is bugged, some never fixed. This latest event wants you to spend valuable resources that are 10x what whales thought it would be. 10x is not a typo... To finish the event they are asking you to spend the equivalent of $70 a day for 10 days. You would actually have to spend that because the resource they want you to spend isn’t given out enough to save 10 days worth. When whales think something is absolute craziness imagine what a mild spender or f2p must think. Since the “whole” community is up in arms I’m sure they will try and make some small change they think is acceptable and it will be weak like it always is. Scopley will get what they want in the beginning but slowly kill off the community and this game will die. Can I give 0 stars because that’s what you deserve? This is also my first review ever because you couldn’t be more deserving of my time to write this.
Adding on to my previous review and nothing is changing for the better. If you are a newer player just don’t even bother. The catch up mechanics are non-existent you will be in a hole until the day you realize you’re never getting out of it. Stay away!
NERaborn - Great game that’s gone downhill. Substantially.
Scopely has turned a once-fun character collector game with great Marvel characters into a bug and exploit-filled money sink. The greed that this company has shown is absolutely heartbreaking - new characters, gear for upgrades, training materials to level up characters, and worst of all the horribly-implemented red star system are all locked behind thinly-veiled paywalls with delayed and extremely limited resources available for free-to-play players and occasional/light spenders. The company has at times done the bare minimum when it comes to addressing these issues, and more often than that they completely ignore player base concerns. Event and arena exploits go unaddressed, there have been more frequently occurring instances of miscommunication, errors in paid offers, and scheduled events not occurring at their set times.
I’ve personally poured countless hours and more money than I’d care to admit into this game, and I’ve made some wonderful friends in my alliance along the way, but it’s becoming harder and harder to log in every day when there’s another paywall, bug, or exploit at every instance. Until they actually address and fix these problems, the 1-star rating will stay, and I would encourage anyone interested in the game to stay away completely.

Bloodlust Vanpyr - surprised
I played all sorts of these types of games that are (free) to play but your stuck behind a paywall and pretty much can’t progress unless you spend money, or you can’t get the items/characters you want because once again you can only spend money to unlock them....I honestly thought this was another but I was greatly wrong.
By doing my daily’s and just playing the game I have unlocked a ton of characters and have heaps of items I have only spent money once and that was because I just didn’t want to wait one more day to get my character.
These devs are always making updates and the one time that I had a problem it was fixed almost instantly. It’s a great game from a team that seems to care about its player base
Orchidbaby010 - Some annoying errors
The game itself is good.
But recently, as of the Spider verse update, my game has started to crash for no reason. Such as when playing the web headed warriors campaign, I always lag even when the dialogue happens and the bad thing is when it lags out, THE CAMPAIGN EMERGY STILL COUNTS, leaving 6 or 12 campaign energy wasted from a bug. Another time I lag is when I use certain characters abilities, such as visions second ability, when I use it in blitz the game freezes and crashes, and just like the web headed warriors, it always counts as a battle and I can’t use that team anymore unless I use that blitz money thing.
So this game is good with the animation and the beautiful character designs and fun it has. But it kind of wrecks it when I experience crashes. I play on iPad mini so that might have something to do with it since it is a very old iPad version. But still I can’t play with these crashes.
MY7HIC MAN - I love this game
As the title says I really love this game but it is in a place where I wouldn’t want people to start playing because they would get no satisfaction from playing it, I’ve been playing for the better part of three years and while it had its issues under foxnext, now under scopely it’s been nothing but bugs and broken promises, as soon as there is an advantage for the player, the issue is fixed immediately, yet the issues that prevent players from even finishing content don’t even get looked at for months and even then they don’t even get fixed, the return you get for your time investment is minimal, scopely is destroying this game and it’s a shame because this game has so much potential and it can be a lot of fun; but unfortunately their greed has taken over and it shows from the player satisfaction in general, people I’ve been playing with for years are quitting which is sad but given lack of fun the game is giving I’m about ready to quit myself, Scopely for the love of god please fix your game so I don’t lose my friends in a game I love!
Spooknchops - Love to hate! Unless your a whale of course
I have been playing for a long time and aesthetically its a great game but morally it is the spawn of the devil. Insane costs to buy characters like $80 is just dumbfounding and then your drip fed energy which you will burn through in seconds then have to wait for 2 other recharges in a 24 hour time span, all this can be alleviated with money though so unless your rich don’t expect great things just frustration. The community is majorly upset with balancing issues and raids are near impossible, you need to co- ordinate 24 people to get 100% how is that fair, nobody but the top 2 or 3 alliances could complete the thanos raid and now deadpool raid gives you 2 hours to complete like what are you guys thinking? How do you get 24 people from around the world to complete it in 2 hours, the community is in outrage and its fallen on deaf ears time and time again. Your not interested in fixing anything but how to squeeze every last cent out of the main player base. Love to hate unless your a whale of course!
Ditherer - Was good can it still be?
I have been playing this game for more than 2 years and have generally enjoyed it whilst only doing light spending. Unfortunately things seem to be getting worse. Whilst grind is expected the new mechanics (eg real time arena) are making it worse. Unlocking characters is getting harder with the new character often needing you to either pay (upwards of $50 AUD) or be in the game grinding several hours a day for multiple days. It seems the developers have become more focussed on the whales and krakens to the detriment of the rest of the player base. Without sunk cost and my great alliance I would have quit some time ago. Also they do a good job of trickling the marquee marvel characters out to keep you stuck in the loop of wanting your favourite characters. Often though the new characters are not the fan favourites. For new starters you will probably enjoy it for a bit but once you get to mid game it will becoming grinding with minimal enjoyment.
Special Joe - Entertaining game
To be honest, yes, the cost prices can be high to buy characters and you have the right to complain about it. Simple fix, don’t waste your money on unnecessary items. You can earn what you need in the game and there is really no excuse to complain. The game has a lot of entertaining game modes and doesn’t deserve hate. It is a game for everybody and allows you to unlock cool things without spending money. Lastly, it is imperative you give the game time because the developers are constantly working on it and giving you rewards every time they fix a bug.
Ignore the hate and keep grinding Marvel Strike Fore development team.
Chewburger - Expensive add ons, unachievable content and endorsing shady social media influenced
I used to really love this game. However in the past month:
- social media influencer with a sketchy history with crypto currency scams found to have been given huge advantages in game over player base , hidden from players since release
- content released that requires synergy from entire alliance for 2 hours making it unachievable for most guilds (must be same timezone)
- huge increase in cost of in app purchases
- huge negative changes to game modes that promote poor health and Sleep due to needing to be online every 2 hours to compete
- scaled back rewards in raids/blitz content with supposed “balancing “ content still unavailable
- groups split within game where some players are given significantly better offers or in the case of the wasp event (node 1-9), some players have an impossible to beat node while others are given a very easy one directly effecting rewards
This game doesn’t reward players who spend, it rewards at random. Parts of the marketing are misleading and the direction of the game has changed significantly since beta and launch.
My advice is to stay away from spending any money on this game until you have read that the developer has headed in a positive direction which based on my current interactions with their customer service team will not be soon
Sesole - Great game with Annoying Flaws
The game is great and has a nice loop to it and is fairly decent for a person who doesn’t want to pay anything. My biggest issue and disappointment is the sheer amount of audio bugs and general crashes. Lately raids have failed to start up and freeze at load screen, forcing me to close the app and restart but it’s taken my raid energy when I didn’t even get to start it?! Also anytime I check my notification bar during loading of anything the game freezes/often crashes and is stuck giving me loading screen tips. About 80% of the time when speeding up the battles at all, audio is nonexistent or bugged to only emit one sound. Please fix it to make it more enjoyable and smooth. From a concerned fan.
Koala Kommanda - Don’t bother
Playing this game since 2 weeks after global launch and been a reasonably high spender for the past 2 years. I’ve enjoyed this game up until the last 6 months. The company behind this game is not good. They are not interested in developing a good, fun game that values progress or it’s player base. Every decision they make is about how they can manipulate you into giving them money. The game is consistently buggy, the offers are bordering on scams (if not actual scams). Not only do their offers lie or falsely advertise, but the communication to the community is not accurate. I am essentially done supporting this game financially, I don’t think they deserve/earned my money. Even if someone loved MARVEL, I could not recommend they play this game (either as a spender or a free to play). This game and this company needs a lot of work.
DV nerd - So cool!
This game astonished me more than expected. As soon as I started playing I loved it, because of the realism, graphics and fundamentals. I especially liked how a character in the line of fire of another targeted enemy would kneel/dodge the attack in some way. How the environment is amazing, like cars driving by and just little things like that. Random team ups and bonus attacks can occur, and the way the enemy and character interact is awesome! I thought it was so cool wheb a hero gets hit and stumbles back, it would push back any other heroes behind them. This is by far the best turn based game I’ve played.
The Doctor1994 - This game is nothing but a giant cash-grab
The concept of this game is great and I’ve had it since day 1. But unfortunately this has progressively become more and more of a game designed push out the free-to-play player. Basically you’ll get to a point fairly early on where you hit a wall and you will not get over that wall unless you pay more and more and more. Admittedly the developers have added in more interesting reward systems which have been needed for a long time. But in reality, every update has just been a new way for the developers to try and trick players into thinking they can progress without emptying their wallets.
I want this game to be great but sadly the developers only seem to care about the cash and have no awareness of the fact that this is a game that’s supposed be here for everyone to enjoy, not just the cash-whales.
Archangel J9 - Great game with flaws.
This game is always good fun. The aesthetics and animations are a pleasure to watch. The progression system still has a big pay to win vibe but can be worked around if you’re okay with the grind. My only gripes are the amount of times I get stuck in the initial loading screen at 42% and then it never fully loads. Turns me off playing at all. There seems to be a heavy reliance on an internet connection that won’t suffer any interruptions, otherwise which ever game mode you’re in goes through a hard reset losing all progress. This is frustrating and should be fixed to ensure quality gameplay. Drops rates for characters could also be improved.
stefo.vevo - Honestly No
U downloaded the game yesterday and already I want to get rid of it. It starts off so good but by the time you get up to a certain stage in events and the campaign it gets really tough especially for beginners like me who have other things to do like have a life and not do the same level at least 20 times. It has a great story from what I gather but maybe the difficulty should be bought down by a lot. Another concern is that after a while of playing it feels like a game we’re you have to spend money to get things which is alright because in the game you have the option to get said things but when your not moving in the campaign because your stuck on a level it gets boring and hard, not to mention frustrating.
Sir pickles yum yum - Mobile Experience
Played this game for 1000+ days, but the only reason I play this is for the Marvel IP.... However thats not a good reason for Scopely to turn something mildly fun into a plan to squeeze every last cent out of me. The offers are insanely expensive (always x % off and a blatant sales tactic), ‘events’ that are tied into spending, the give and take is mostly give (wouldnt fix Thor hammer bug but happily fix an offer if it hurts their bottom line), the constant shifting of the goal posts (oh hey your meta team is now useless, here is a new meta which costs a small fortune), and now with the Silver Surfer offer pulled early and then released at DOUBLE the price its gone too far. Why is this behaviour allowed on the app store or by disney/marvel? If they make everyone money then who cares..?
Erich29 - Avoid if you enjoy value
I have been playing this game since launch and for a long time I was able to advance at a good pace for almost no spend, now over the last few months everything new they bring out is either behind a paywall or the resources are so rare you need to spend to keep up. At this point the game has stopped being fun and it’s the friendships I’ve developed that keep me playing but we are dropping like flies.
It’s clear the developers do not care about its players and only about their profits and while I understand it’s a business for them and they want us to spend money they could at least give us value for our money.
This was a great game and can be again but for now avoid it
Garg0n - Predatory & money hungry operation
- Between $50 and $80 for 50 character shards which gets you to 2 of 7 stars then add red stars onto that you could spend somewhere around $300 just to get to 5 stars for one character (less than 5 stars leaves you underpowered)
- $30 for gatcha orbs (loot boxes) which near every time will have the lowest amount of Shards available being 8 character shards (between 50 and 100 shards needed to unlock a character)
- Cheaper 50 shard offers are ALWAYS for non meta and generally underpowered characters.
- There are rarely any sub $10 "micro" transactions available. The sub $10 offers have near zero value in game.
- Gold and training materials are kept beyond scarce with mountains of each required to progress with a SINGLE character while there are always options to buy more the cost is not near worth it allowing a single or less level when your trying to go from level 60 up (level 80 current cap)
- This game is sadly targeting "whales" with tens or thousands of dollars needing to be spent year on year to stay with the meta.
Save your money, save your time and if you have it buy yourself or your loved ones something actually worthwhile.
Gfitdrexutex - Not sure why others hate it?
I’ve been playing this a little bit before Thanos was first released and I have to say... this game is amazing! The fights are strategic and the graphics and animations look great. Other people have been saying it’s a grind and the energy + level cap makes it almost impossible to play but I find it all works out pretty good, there are daily challenges you can do that help give free energy refills and arena gives you plenty of power cores every couple of hours. Overall it’s just a fun game and I would recommend to any Marvel fan.
Surveysprofit - Great game
I have been playing daily since it’s launch. This game is fantastic! You don’t have to spend and still able to progress. You will be able to farm and get your characters through free play pretty much easily, just needs to be patient. If you want them quick, you might want to spend though but still, achievable through free play. Also, the good thing about this game is it doesn’t mean that even if money, you can buy the top characters. You will still need to claim your worth though the special missions.
Hogwarts Girl 15 - I love it
It is an amazing game, easy to play. I don’t pay any money and have still achieved a lot. The only issues are how easy it is to run out of gold and power cores (but that is also easy to regain), how long it takes to unlock some characters, the unlikely odds of orbs and how to be the strongest and unlock and strengthen all characters, you need to pay money. There are also a few glitches here and there.
Other than that it is a great game and I highly recommend it. I would also like to add, there are no ads :)
Dino.16 - So much potential lost
Overall great game, however it has completely moved to a pay to win type game, and example of how out of touch they are is there latest event. It requires you to spend in game items to level up. To complete them each day means you have to buy them. Currently to complete for the average player it means spending about $200 a day for the 10 days. $2000 in 10 days just to compete in a mobile game is way to much. Since scopley took
Over they have moved towards basically a pay to play model. Unless your a large spender maybe try a different game.
To add further insult, scopley have just been caught allowing some players to use an exploit given they a massive advantage in game.
PrincSMXN - Worst game ever
I’ve been playing for 3 years and my account been permanently banned which is because I was fooling around with bunch of players and giving them food nicknames based on where they r from. It’s not nice to give nicknames and I do deserve to get punished but I don’t deserve to get permanently banned for this. The conversation wasn’t even serious. And the customer service claimed that my food nicknames that given to players that I familiar with was Racial slur. What a bull. I also got permanently banned which is to talk about the issue in official discord. They want me dead for good. You know that they r just bunches of bullies that act like baby. I don’t know what about you but this is a shame for Scopely and Marvel. From today. I’m no longer a Marvel fan. I hope that they get what they f k1ng deserve.
BenjiSterne - Money, but it’s irrelevant
This game used to be fantastic, at its core it is still the same game however it has been thoroughly tainted by overpriced macro-transactions, talking upwards of $80 AUD for a single member of a Five Member team, and to bring them to a point at which they’re useable involves spending the same amount on rng mechanics for a CHANCE for your money to have not been wasted, only to return to spend even more money to finish the team out and discover that none of it matters because the team is useless outside of a niche game mode. This game has been pushed towards a monetisation model more predatory than any AAA developer like EA or the like. Don’t waste your time, they haven’t changed it, and most likely won’t. Go invest that cash and make money, don’t waste it on this
human444being - Actual advice for the creators
Don’t get me wrong this game is actually surprisingly good compared to other marvel games but to upgrade characters can be too expensive when you reach a certain point in the game and the pricing for things is ridiculous. The prices should be cut in half, eg from 80 to 40 dollars. At least then there is more of a chance that people will spend money on the game, meaning overall the games income will increase. This wouldn’t only be a great profit increase but also a player increase as a lot of people have stopped playing the game because of the pricing and the amount that upgrading characters becomes.
CMagic97 - Used to be good
I played this game a couple years ago. It was great. I have now reinstalled it after a two year break and on my first try I can’t even play it. Iron Man comes up saying ‘Good news Commander, Fury and I have a new way for you to get stronger, faster. Let’s check it out.’
Yeah right. For a brief second the button to continue appears, but when I am able to press it fast enough, it doesn’t even work. All the buttons then disappear and iron man is stuck there. I can’t press anything. Nothing works. Not even reinstalling it works.
Completely unplayable. And I agree with everyone saying this is a money hungry game. Will uninstall and won’t be looking at playing it ever again. Very disappointed as I did enjoy the game when it was good.
Hashinghod - Great premise slowly being wasted
Played a lot of similar games and when you first start this game the enjoyment level is fantastic. However, the longer you play the more you realise the game is filled with bugs without any sign of being fixed, your initial development grinds to a halt and bottlenecks in the game start to sap desire to log in and the game while still showing glimpses of potential due to the framework that they work with, the game begins to feel stale and that it’s taking advantage of the player base and their love for marvel. Hoping due to the strong base they turn it around but experience is telling me they’ll just keep repeating mistakes until something major breaks and the game shuts down.
Jdnm0r90 - To scopely
I understand you added a new milestone orb where you now get symyote spider man but I was wondering if you could add a full event just for venomised spider man I was wondering if you could add a event like the nick fury event where it never expires and you could add a blitz where you need to at least have 2 symbyote characters and you could add a different type of orb like add it to the blitz orb and maybe add a normal venom spider man orb where you can only get different types of venom characters only
Midnight_run - Energy cap and stage count cap
Pick one or the other... why have both a energy capacity AND a play though cap on stages??
I dont get it, it doesnt make people want to spend credits to have to fill up both...
Game developers need to pick one or the other and stick to it... there is nothing to do in game once you run out of energy... play through caps are fine... it keeps people in game and engaged, sure you will hit a level wall but at least playability last longer, idon’t mine recharging a level playthrough for in game currency but im not gonna spend it on time based energy... i think its single handedly the worst idea in mobile games ever... it doesnt extend playability... it kills it completely... get rid of it
Schatzyy_ - Really enjoy it BUT
Really been enjoying this game so I decided to drop some money on it and buy black panther. Not only did I spend $80 AUD and not receive black panther but I haven’t heard anything from their support team in regards of either refunding the money or giving me what I paid for.
Edit in response to developer:
Responded to the support team, issue not resolved and I am not happy that I lost $80 and didn’t receive what I payed for. I have never been emailed a purchase receipt (not even today when I bought power cores) so I really hope you guys resolve my issue because this is an amazing game and I am happy to support it with buyable content but if $80 miraculously went missing when I purchased black panther then I no longer will support this game.
itsnotbarry - Should be 5 stars. But it’s Crashville now.
If you have the money to burn you’ll be a powerhouse. If you just want to kill time there’s plenty to keep you going. It’s a smart balance overall. And it’s way better than Star Wars or the two previous Marvel Alliance games.
However after two years playing and having dozens of high level characters now the game is constantly crashing. All in game fighting, arenas, whole campaigns, blitz’s and raids are useless. The whole game went from stable to garbage in about two months. Now it’s just broken. 😞
MrSkuxxDeluxe - Awesome game
This game is incredible, the graphics are gorgeous, the storyline is incredible and there is new content every month. While the in game offers are way too expensive and this game is kind of pay to win, this game can easily be played as a free to play. I’ve been playing since April 2018 and I’ve never spend a dollar on this game yet I’m an endgame player. If you love the IP or love Galaxy of Heroes give this game a shot, it’s so much better in every conceivable way.
Opalaure - Pretty game but terrible design
Very pretty, very flashy, very poor design. Fairly pay to win game. Never enough daily gold or character experience or stamina to level properly unless you pay so you are under strength the whole time. Timed pvp in arena favours the defenders, and the DEfenders faction is all anyone plays while levelling in arena unless you have money, no team besides money can beat them due to poor design. Alliance wars matchmaking is garbage, based off win streaks or something, so if you randomly get matched up against dead alliances and win, eventually you will face people triple your power level, and get utterly destroyed. Over and over.
BigMinaj - These Orbs are getting annoying...
I absolutely love this game and I’m so excited for the brotherhood, but there are a few characters that are way to hard to obtain, like BLACK WIDOW!!! People say she is one of the best characters in the game, and I agree that means she needs further reaches to obtain, so I think she should be in like Nexus 6-9, instead of $80 or the expensive orbs, I love mystique so i pushed and managed to get her in 3 days of her release in the campaign, which was reasonable and not ridiculous, I really love this game but it needs to be more fair for free to play players, thankyou xx
Grim_Reaper27 - Crash problems
Iv read one of the comments and I agree that the game is really good no question, but I crash when ever I attempt to do any type of campaign or blitz battle and I still loose the energy or hp on my characters like I did the mission or battle even though I crashed and I have tried uninstalling and then re-installing, and re-starting my phone several time and it has gotten to the point where the game is basically impossible for me to progress through so please fix this
Hulk1994 - Love this game but will it last?
Love this game a lot I’ve only played for 2 hours but this its really great. Everything about it is fantastic I do however have some concerns. This game is identical to marvel alliance 1 and 2 and I play those games everyday with out fail then one day I find out that both games have been closed down and I spent over 150 dollars on those games only to find out it was for nothing. 5 stars those I will recommend this game.
Tobias Brieva - I want to like it but...
I seriously think I would love this game however the constant crashing really does my head in. You cannot play this game for more than 5 minutes before it crashes out of nowhere. Sound glitches occur regularly along with visual glitches of the menus. Developers, please give me whatever you are having because you obviously don’t test your game if it is in this state. Couple that up with a ridiculous in game cost for characters, its like the developers want you to hate this game. Disappointing for a game with the Marvel franchise. Please fix bugs and glitches, it is unplayable.
Slim-Trady - Fix game crashing
This is my favourite game on mobile maybe even in general besides FIFA. I play this game in the morning in the afternoon and at night, but the biggest problem I face is constant crashing when I’m in the campaign or during faction wars last night twice after I used visions secondary. I’ve nearly completed the heroes campaign and the crashing is making it harder then it needs as it still consumes energy
Blackcowl - Don’t support this opportunistic predator of a company.
In my 35 years of playing games, I have not come across a more inept, unprofessional or unscrupulous company that Scopely now attempting to rebrand their image into Boundless Entertainment.
If they did not have the Marvel IP, people would have left this game a long time ago. Nothing but rookie mistakes, glitches and catastrophic failures all at their player bases expenses yet have the gall to still attempt to fleece money off them without reinvesting to actually make this game work properly. Any other job or industry would have fired the whole department or board responsible for such failure. Please save your time and money and sanity and avoid anything from this company.
Robbie24816 - Fun when it isn’t crashing
I really enjoy the missions and level up characters. However, I’m now stuck on one campaign as every time I try to start this mission it crashes the whole game. This has happened at least 8 times. This will also happen on random missions or just when switching between menus. I’ve tried lowering the quality of fights but I can find a way to stop this game crashing. I’d only recommend if, for some reason, you can stop the game from crashing constantly.
Update: I’ve recently been crashing as soon as a missions starts. Meaning I am losing campaign and raid energy with no chance to win or lose the mission.
LLV7 - Good fun.
I’ve played plenty of games where you hit an obvious pay wall. Not this one. It’s been five or six weeks now. Progress is gradual but certainly possible.
That’s not to say you can’t have a huge advantage if you pay up. Of course you can. Still, it’s refreshing to find one of these games where you can log on each day or two, have a few matches and have fun. Most others it is either you have to devote your life to it to get by, or devote your wallet to it to progress...
As a result I’ve made more in app purchases than in any other title, because I’m not forced to, and because it’s a fun game and I keep coming back.
While that might seem counter intuitive to the current business models with strong pay walls, other games could learn from this.
Xinx09 - Good game but..
I really enjoy the game as it looks great and plays well. Fairly simple mechanic to collect and upgrade heroes with more releases over time so it’s not too much too soon.
My main gripe the astonishing price of any in app purchases.
I’d happily support the game I play every day but the cheapest releases are $15, with any decent characters going up to $80! That more than some console games! And they don’t even come with gear or gold to level them up.
So I’ll continue to stay on my f2p slog, as it plays just fine.
Jamie007398 - Great game but lots of bugs
I downloaded the latest update of this game and I’ve been constantly getting this message saying “anomaly detected” whether I try to do almost any mission. I restart the game and the same thing happens. What’s worse though is the fact that if I use campaign energy, it gets used up and I don’t receive anything. It’s not my phone because I have tried it on my iPad to
Austin11793 - Expensive & balancing issue
Very expensive to get a handful of shards while it sometimes needs 100+ to reach acceptable star levels. Slow energy recovery. This game has balancing issue when it forces you to have a maximum of 5 characters and you have to face 15+ enemies at the same time. Accumulative damages add up. Lack of good healer characters doesn’t help. And limiting the amount of times players can replay a level per day otherwise players have to pay, is just a cheap cash grab. Marvel makes great movie and this app developers really wanna capitalise on Marvel’s success and charge players ridiculous amount of money. Take note from similar games like DC Legends of Monster camp.
HELP!!!?! - Update issue
Since the last update with the introduction of the red stars, when the initial tutorial happened I had to close my game and now when I open it the tutorial is still trying to run while on the main screen and I am unable to click on anything. All I can do is scroll left and right, and the tutorial box asking to tap the info button won’t go away. So I’m frozen out of the game, hopefully someone reads this and can fix is ASAP.
OGXIV - Blown away
Now normally I play games that are FPS but for some reason the style of this video game has convinced me to play more games like this 5 on 5 and so on but now ever since I’ve started playing games like this marvel strike force has convinced me to switch my genre of gaming , this game has everything you could ask for with its amazing gameplay and stunning visuals. Really love this game and that’s why it’s earned my 5 stars
GODINOSTAR - Marvel Strike Force
In the next update I want to see, when doing raids you can see each other perform on they attacks and set up a new alliance chat that you can make groups to talk tactics. And if the campaign, it’s a little to hard now which I’m level 51 and still can’t pass, but overall great work, you guys have done a fantastic job the graphic and the updates have been grouse keep up the good work!
CrixCross - Annoying restart
Guys ... you have to fix this. It was never fixed at all. Every time a new event comes I.e. The Thing ... I can only play the first stage. After that ... when it try to load on the 2nd stage ... it just close the app off. Now ... I couldn’t even go to the next stage even on the easy and medium level.
Also in other campaigns or blitz ... same thing happens. When I restart the app and go to where I left off, it already consumes my power core ... now this is a rip off.
Fix this please .... it’s ANNOYING 🤬😡😡
Bank best - Marvellous Marvel!
Best game online I’ve ever played. I’m an old school comic book reader, have limited additions Black Panther and original Wolverine to name few. This game has bought those characters to life plus unexpectedly connected me with a group of people from around the world with similar interests and more. One of our team got engaged the other day and we all celebrated 🍾. It’s a bit more than just a game.
Anon10121 - Everything that is wrong with app gaming
Recently they advertised the new rewards for the chaos theory event. After managing to sell overpriced offers to the people who needed those offers to do the event, they pulled more than half the rewards citing an “error” on their end.
In any other developed marketplace in the world if a company sold something in relation to something else and then changed the payout, they’d be in breach of law and forced to refund.
Not in online games though. This is the Wild West boys and girls. We are just along for the ride.
Just google or go to reddit and you’ll see the underhanded and in some cases, likely in breach of your countries consumer law, actions they use.
JustinMDP - A good game ruined by a bad dev.
On paper a turn based rpg featuring the stars of Marvel comics feels like a can’t miss game, and at first it might feel like it too. The game is fun to play. The characters have a decent variety, and there are a good selection of modes. So why the low score?
Simple. Between lowering rewards while increasing the difficulty and time sink required and making raids that only last two hours thus limiting alliances in games ability to play with those in conflicting time zones the developer has showcased anti customer practices time and time again. It seems as if every week some new way of angering the fan base occurs. Avoid.
Psyckle - What you get out of it is up to you
...and if you put in a whole lot of time and/or money you will get somewhere. But mostly money - given over 150 characters (and increasing every month) with several of the best being behind huge paywalls - any player starting off will require substantial investment of money and/or time. Time alone will not get you access to all the game features or modes or characters given the rate changes are coming out.
The developer at least listens to feedback but unfortunately more often recently that feedback has been negative.

Dfebgegtbrbybre - Awesome
Reaallly good eveyrthing perfect except for graphics can u make a graphic setting
Frieza1962 - OMG EXPENSIVE!!!!
And players in Marvel Future Fight complain about spending, I’ve spent thousands on MFF but this would require 5 times as much money to play and acquire a character just to not be able to freely move around with the character. I don’t know not my thing when the price tags are so high up. I’d buy 2 Mandala packs for Mystique before id invest in this game at this point. Great graphics and fun gameplay, Hey if you have the cash you will enjoy this game.
EMM3RLY - Warning
Search Marvel Strike Force Red Stars before wasting your time.
Clay1755 - Played for 4 yrs
I’ve really enjoyed this game over the years. It has always really pushed to get you to spend money though. That has become so much worse in the last year and what you receive for what you spend is ‘random’ with terrible value even for a in-house digital commodity.
I have mostly lost interest in the game due to the above plus increasingly log load times between every action you take in game. If this game played then the way it does now, I never would have gotten into it.
Minotaur425 - Wish I could give 0 stars
Game was great. I even spent well over $100. dollars on it. Then after this last update it crashes constantly and I’ve gotten no help from customer service. Not a word to say they are working on it. I even deleted and installed 3 times. If this isn’t fixed soon as well as get VERY WELL compensated for the loss of time and resources not to mention the aggravation, I will be moving on to another game.
x_UrCuRse_x - Don’t play this game
It’s a trap. You’ll start off having fun until you hit an artificial wall. Where you’ll be tempted to spend money.
Don’t ever think that spending money means you’re investing it into anything. Because devs will roll out new features that start the process all over again. And when the community rejects these new features, the devs basically come out and say “deal with it”.
Save your time, save your money. Stay away from this game.
Leretz - Why must i always restart???
Crashes way too often, i also had over 150 energy and after 2 rounds i had 8 left :s im gunna stick with contest of champions!
EricN101 - Game is good, company is trash
I was really enjoying this game and then, for no reason, they massively changed the schedule on three of their legendary character releases, moving one of them up by about five weeks. Ruined all of my plans
Vicomte Lestat de Lioncourt - Unacceptable
Don’t lose your time with that useless game:
- customer service is the worst you’ve ever seen.
- you can get people banned without explanation, just a simple screen copy even without specific words is sufficient. Nobody will Check if it’s justified.
- game missing basic functionalities.
- impossible to catch up your delay if you didn’t start the game when originally released.
Macjnet - Waste of time
DO NOT PLAY, HUGE WASTE OF TIME. Even if you pay to play, this game drops out in the middle of battles and events, even off the lobby and loading screens. Get no real support from the developers when contacted. Loose energy and tokens every time you have to reload but do not receive any rewards. Terrible experience, very frustrating
somethingsomething6997 - Knock off
This game is just a worse version of the old avengers alliance game it’s terrible, full of loot boxes if you want characters be prepared to spend all your money on micro transactions. Trust me just skip this game
DemisedGame - Used to enjoy this game then Scopely ruined it. Save MSF
I used to really enjoy this game till Scopely introduced multiple new bottlenecks and no real new content. Scopely continues to introduce new methods whereby you can only keep up with the game if you pay money. They introduced an expensive $20US pass for a game mode that I put the game on auto to get through as fast as I can. They will also be introducing a new pass in the next patch. If this pass is also tied behind money, which it will likely be, then they’ll expect $40 a month just to keep up in the game. They are overly greedy and completely unwilling to address underlying issues that many players have had in the game. They have caused a large number of players to quit and will continue to do so until they introduce some real change in the game.
Usernametake25 - Fixable
I’ve spent a lot of money on this game. I’ve enjoyed this game a lot at times.
But the countless bottlenecks have caught up. I can’t do anything without spending an incredible amount of money. The posts for end game content was pushed out of the reach of the economy. Couple that with RNG redstars and you could very well spend hundreds more on the character, and that character remain useless cause of bad redstar pulls.
They can fix these things and make their money on cosmetics and new character releases instead of character progression.
It sucks to say, but it might be time to look for a new marvel IP to enjoy.
GMoney9217 - Unfortunate
Used to be a manageable game. Ever since Scopely took over, the focus has shifted to not caring about the fan base and trying to squeeze every last drop from the people who spend money on this.
It’s heartbreaking that most people playing now only stick around because they love the Marvel Universe.
hermeimhouse - Greedy Devs
So many bugs in this game that the company choses to ignore and refuses to fix while milking the player base for money and creating content for only pay to play players. Huge time sink for little rewards. Don’t bother.
Joeinvan - Ultimate in pay to win
They’ve lost the plot. Game was fun in summer of 2018, but now it’s fully pay to win. Latest updates have brought red stars which you can buy with real money daily and bring random power boosts.
The player base rallied together to complain and the developer essentially answered “we realize now you don’t like what we’ve done, but we’re just going to keep it because people are paying us”
mr blueshark - Crashes every time
When it works it’s a fun game and awesome system but it constantly crashes I’ve tried restarting it and the phone and even got a new phone and it still crashes to the point that’s all you can do
ChrisJohnSimmons12345 - Terribly out of touch with their customers
Ever since Scopely took over operations this game has taken a huge nose dive.Their quality control is atrocious and there are so many bugs with every event the past year that it’s been a terrible user experience. They do not listen to the community. Check Reddit.
Jsawchuk21 - Scoplenecks
Way to many bottlenecks ben playing for around 6 months and currently can’t struggling with bottlenecks such as:
-red stars (you need 4 just to compete which is super expensive or you have to get lucky)
And the list goes one. RTA is complete trash and takes to much time blitzing is complete rubbish, I am almost 3 million total collection power if I hit ever blitz I would only manage to get 25-45 shards of there new toon and if I don’t get 45 I don’t get to unlock them. If I do 45 I have to set a timer for ever 2 hours for 3 days where the whales get the same points with one rotation.
cvenegas5 - This game is a shell of what it once was
If you aren’t ready or willing to put out thousands of dollars into this game good luck progressing or keeping up with the meta as you will no longer be able to stay competitive. There are many issues that needs to be resolved that has been brought up to the devs but Scopely refuses to acknowledge them and now this game is heading towards a downward trend and are losing their player base. But hey whatever writes the check.
Taazzzy177 - Trash
This game is awful now, it used to be good. There is no comps anymore when mistakes are made.. the prices of things even if you did want to buy are ridiculously over priced. Support is absolutely 100% zero help now. They asked me to send them a recorded video to prove I was telling the truth or tell me to send a screen shot but screen shots don’t even work (it basically gets stuck and you have to reset game every time you try to send a screenshot) game is trash.
Bmund91 - Bottlenecks
A very addicting and fun game. However, there is a clear lack of resource availability (Gold, Training Materials, Blue and Purple Gear). They have such a wide range of characters and are adding more constantly. Unfortunately the lack of resources means you can’t upgrade everyone to the point that they are even slightly capable of holding their own in battle.
Comas,Fokker - Newest MM event
Newest multiple man event, awesome!? No. Same old event using idiotic block tactics, destroy the enemy, but first destroy this enemy oh and also miss two turns.
Been playing for over a year now, I would not recommend this game to anyone. I only still play it cause I feel obliged after I’ve paid for some insane overpriced packages.
Avoid at all costs.
popolodebushi - Can’t have a day without a new bug
Worse quality check company i have ever seen.
bluejay20001015 - Rta sucks
No one likes rta so stop making it a requirement. Ban this ban that... geez what bunch of idiots
bandhee101 - Hopefully they’re listening
I’ve played this game everyday for a couple years. I love it, but the developers have lost their way and need a reminder that the community has power as well. #savemsf
Spartacus943 - Frustrating game
We need way more gold and red stars to enjoy the game. Way too many characters for the amount of resources.
Punkinbrain - Hoping to see some improvement.
I’ve loved and played this game for a long time and very much want to rate it 5 stars, but the quality of life I experience while playing the last year hasn’t been the same. After a while you feel attached to something you’ve put so much time into and I want to play and enjoy this game like I once did but there are just so many bottlenecks and mechanics working against the player. I’ve spent a lot of money on this game and sadly some days I feel a lot of regret for it. I don’t want to feel like this company’s intent is to consistently cash grab its player base but at times it definitely feels so. You guys can do better I’ve seen an amazing game here once and I know it can be achieved again, I just hope to see it happen.
Ylavo - Insulting to the marvel IP
The developers do not seem to care about making a quality product. The game has had massive game defining bugs for the last year. If I worked for Marvel or Disney and I saw how much care they put into giving marvel a good name i would pull their license asap. Also a million other issues that will probably be covered by other reviewers. Would not recommend for new players. Considering stopping if nothing improves. Shame scopley.
Klyntar Syndicate - #SaveMSFmovement
Great game with great potential that is being locked away by lack of developer updates and acknowledgement of existing problems. Let’s make this game fun again for everyone!
Meduhwhoelse - Fun but Buggy
I am approaching two years playing, this game has brought me a lot of joy, fun and stress. I have not once missed a day playing this game, I will keep coming back to play for a long time yet. However, this game is riddled with bugs, there is little to no quality check before anything goes live. It’s rare for there not to be at least 3-5 bugs every day. Scopley seems to be trying to get as much money out of this game as they can before they just leave it to die. Recent events have been controversial and incomplete. I enjoy the gameplay when it functions properly. If not for the friends I have made in this game, I would have quit months ago.
Graybackz - Bottleneck on Bottleneck
Too much bottleneck (gold, training modules, red stars, purple gear, etc) to be able to progress your roster at a reasonable pace.
Additionally the game ask too much of your precious time (blitz your full roster several times a day, Real time arena where you need to play random character instead of playing of victory, etc..) for very low rewards
And obviously the price on offers are most of the time scandalous (you can get a real AAA game on your console for a few character shards)
gamerjunkie45 - Trash
If I could give this game negative stars I most likely would. Where to start, the game WILL crash on you during blitz, raids, war battles and even loading the game. Constantly throwing “deals” in your face and definitely a pay to win mechanism, look it up it’s a form of gambling system that they promote. Sure you don’t have to spend money if you don’t want to. But they WILL always throw these offers in your face. Also the customer service is garbage, if there is a bug that benefits them it will take months/years to get it fixed or even remotely look at. If there is a bug that benefits the player, it’s fixed that day. Good luck commander!
kingnotthin - Fix MSF
Way to many bugs, and bottlenecks. Plus redstars sucks.
Wade613 - Where are we headed?
This game has issues that need to be addressed so that the players can see that the direction the game is moving in is a positive one not a dead end
ComJoe33 - Could be much better
Game was kinda fun...then I ran into all the bottlenecks and im supposed to compete against people who’ve played it for years without any catch up mechanics?
Rta is trash and not saveable.....just why is this a thing? Another auto battle mode...great job devs lol. Why is it against other people if you’re not competing?
Rng/no control over huge roster upgrades (red stars)..earn like 50 silver a month..takes 150 for to go from 4-5lvl..150 characters with 7 lvls each...do the math
DAILY BUGS that are simple oversights and completely preventable that cause much more damage than they realize.
Feels like the devs care about money rather than a fun game. Not saying this is true, just thats how the game currently makes the players feel.
Make a fun game in which you can use lots of characters with....not force ppl into bottlenecks and rely on gotcha mechanics to earn money.
Rehab2074 - Lack of community interest
I’ve been playing this game religiously for 2-3 years. I’ve grinded and worked hard for all my characters even spent $ to help reach certain heights. But the fact that most of the community are constantly sharing their concerns and problems such as artificial scarcity, FOMO (fear of missing out), 150 redstar tokens for a 5 red but only way to earn them is by purchasing for ridiculous amounts even with the introduction of new characters. Regardless back to the beaten path, developers constantly reassure us that they “hear us” but take ages to implement patches when bugs affect the player but the moment the player is benefited they’re patched asap?
Corban recluse - No loyalty or concern
I have been playing the game almost since the day it came out fell in love with the concept and play-style however after scopley took over it went form the occasion cash grab via new characters to constant rollout at insane prices for orbs you can’t depend on to get you anywhere. This game crashes with so much frequency and you will not get any of the the in game energy or currency you used before or during that crash all in all the quality of the game fell and doesn’t look like it’s getting better until they start paying attention to customers
reggtracey - #FixMSF
600+ day player. Loved the game when I first started. Now it feels like a huge grind. The gradual price increases that have happened are noticeable. The bottlenecks are unreal and the lack of availability on some of the materials is frustrating. But the amount of new toons being released monthly makes it apparent that their is a disconnect from scopely and the player base as their is no way to keep up unless you whale out on everything that is released. This is my opinion on a few things that need to be fixed...... if it even matters or if you even listen....
Charli D'amelii - :)
i hope the owner of this game loses money
Hahbfhxhd - Broken
So much issues that devs ignore. Broken game. Instead of fixing game bugs, the devs ignore the player base and release awful “deals”. STAY AWAY
dank645 - Stay away. 0 stars should be an option
This is not a game designed for fun. Everything is all about putting you at a disadvantage to spend money. Unless your OK with playing the game at a snails pace. And if you finally break down and spend. It means nothing because next month a new toon comes out that makes last month’s purchase almost worthless.
They prefer bringing out new toon after new toon. And completely ignoring bugs that have been in the game forever.
Yet, if a bug is found that gives the player an advantage, its miraculously fixed in hours.
Ronald McfreakinDonald - Just a money vaccum, dont buy
this games virtually impossible to progress through without giving these people my paycheques so I'd stay far away from this one
Boilon1219 - Loosen the bottlenecks ! FixMSF
Lately in the game there just has been so many bottlenecks in the game. This ranges from a terribly designed Red Star progression system for characters , to not enough gold to level any characters, training modules ( another currency needed to level characters... yeah...), gear pieces, and the list goes on. There is absolutely no reason to get excited for new characters when you have to get lucky in a slot machine system like red stars but also barely have enough gold or gear to level them so it’s almost pointless....
Wish I could recommend this game to others because I still enjoy it but there is so much wrong with it that I can’t.
Cleaning Agent - Draining
You have to log on every two hours 24/7 to have a chance at progressing without paying. Also in what world are micro transactions $50+ and higher. Finally there are too many bottlenecks to actually progress at a consistent rate, making it impossible to lvl new characters at the rate they release. Needs some basic increasing of resources to coincide with increasing lvl caps. Common logical sense.
Pertinax89 - #SaveMSF
I love this game, but Scopely has been neglecting too many parts of Strike Force for too long, seemingly out of greedy laziness, as ending bottlenecks and adding game modes costs them money they could just funnel into firing out the next insanely overpowered meta team that crushes the last one. Years since release and still two faction teams functionally worthless. Many more power-crept by the push to make new teams twice as good as the last. The one awesome, rewarding event they did for us (Orb Avalanche) has been explicitly mentioned as never happening again. Again, I love this game, but Scopely is slowly rotting its foundation of support.
Wolfbanne - Great game being run into the ground
This game is fun, has lots of characters you want to play and beautiful graphics.
However, the grind is astronomical for new and even existing players. The real money costs for ‘deals’ is way beyond reasonable. The development team continually ignores the community (#fixmsf movements pop up once a year).
Scopely has shown repeatedly that they are concerned with making new characters which are always stronger then the old ones and that are only attainable by spending a fortune. They also prefer to spend their time creating more time sink additions to the game rather then fix the known issues and bugs with the current game.
Leroy/Jenkins - Scopely please help your players
The player base of this game is becoming frustrated.... the changes being implemented are simply not enough. Incredibly high cost, battle passes, and a broken system like red stars is making this game even more “pay to win” than it has been in past, especially when new characters come out so frequently that you are forced to choose which ones to level up due to lack of resources thanks to WAY TOO MANY bottlenecks
Scopely I’d have no problem spending money if you fixed the current issues, and made the game fun again, but worrying about costumes for characters isn’t going to fix what’s currently causing unhappiness in the player base.
BigSpartan034 - Only money matters
Terrible communication with the community. Blatent disregard for the best interest of the players. Gross predatory actions by the devs. Incredible ignorance by Scopely has lead to a massive Boycott of this game by 15000 of the games top players. Rolling back player progress. False advertising. And lying to players about what's in new updates. RUN!
PATTAR567 - Horrible customer service
I have two accounts one which started for a few days when the game first launched and then my main account. MSF refuses to delete my inactive account for some odd reason even after trying multiple times. What kind of game forces you to keep it?? Afraid it’ll hurt your users numbers or what?
The game is also set up so you can’t compete unless you spend 1000s of dollars a year. Fun game and addicting but you’ll spend the mortgage if you want to compete.
