I'll make Zerukova's words mine too...

"You didn't leave a note that this was meant to be an idle game so I going to assume it was just a crappy "strategy" game (can you even call it that at this point?)

I am sorry but you made the hero completely useless anyway so what stopping the players from keeping him out of combat? You have the units automatically spawn and you only have a choice of what spells to use which only speed things slightly.

Sorry but this is either a crappy idle game that fail at being idle or a crappy strategy game that fail to have strategy. It your choice for the reason why I gave a 1.

The phoenix look stolen. I have no proof of this but the design don't match AT ALL with the rest of the game and the frame rate not even the same. Just something else you got lazy on or did you steal it from something else?

This is the first Epic War game I ever play so no fanboy-ness from me. I call it as I see it. If this game sucks so badly I really have to wonder how much you improve since the first or at least how sucky the first one was.

Rule of thumb: quality over quantity is view to be better by the fan base, quantity only good if you wish to milk as much cash as you can which last time I check you only making pennies from ads at the most as Newgrounds is free and only pay if you win a contest or something. Maybe for Epic War 6 you can take your time and make some improvement?"

P.S.: I love all the Epic War s saga, this one, in particular, left me sad.

As first review evar...

...(cuz i'm a new user BUT a lurker from a long loong time ago) i want to say that i'm loving this game, i find the visual quality very pleasant and exciting. The characters are looking great. In my newbie opinion, all of those things (and others) is enough to compensate the lacking of strategy. GW! =D

hmm

The graphics/gameplay are great. No one is doubting that. But I have a brand new computer, and even when I lowered the quality, turned off the blood and gore, and even turned off the sound effects, the game still lagged. Like 60 seconds to complete a command lag.

I'd fix that next time.

Good game.

It's easier if you just have your hero set back and have your team do the work for you you might lose alot of them but you don't lose any health and you always win!
