I remember the first Epic War game, hours, literally would play for hours, the second, even more hours, the 3rd, hey...now something different, not bad but ok good, sadly it was about then when everything really felt it go down hill for me at least, I loved the arrow tower then spam units when you have the funds, I did like, greatly the idea of mixing and matching, having these undead things, with those centaur things, what have you. However it seemed to start to get away from what i felt was the soul of the game. This one...I dunno words cannot even begin to describe. 3rd party sign in, no matter how easy it is to do, is annoying for the simple fact it never existed in ANY of the other Epic War games. upgrades to expensive, story, I dunno first mission didn't look like it hand one, or if there was I couldn't see it. The story while not wholly there for some EW games, didn't hinder the goodness? ya the overall goodness of the game.
