Review Spartan Wars: Empire of Honor
Fantasy RPG in Spartan times
Author: Jay Feldman
Date: 23 Aug 2014, tested on ASUS Nexus 7 (2013)
Crashes, glitches, is lagging, challenging controls
Spartan Wars: Empire of Honor for Android is a fantasy RPG card game. Build up your empire, recruit solders and fight like proud warriors against online opponents.
Spartan Wars: Empire of Honor is a fantasy RPG brought to life with mediocre graphics and sound. The game has some intrigue and potential, but sadly, the app is riddled with errors, glitches and outright crashes that make it virtually unplayable. The app crashed literally dozens of times just during the tutorial alone, and the presentation is so heavy handed that it turns what should be an exciting adventure into a tedious waste of time.
From what I could gather, the idea is to build your Spartan civilization, complete with captive slaves to mine your gold. As you develop your empire, you train your forces and choose a mythic god to worship. When your army is ready, tap the interactive map to peruse the neighboring villages that are available to attack. Fights are basically just fantasy card play, and once the match begins, you do virtually nothing but watch it unfold in a very static and underwhelming manner.
The graphics are ok, when they aren't crashing. The animation has some good flash and pop, but essentially is much ado about nothing. The sounds are ok, but really, who cares about any of that? The app crashes so much it really doesn't matter what's happening onscreen.
Spartan Wars: Empire of Honor has potential but plays worse than a first generation beta. I find it hard dot believe the app is as popular as the developers claim; how could a game be this bad and this popular all at the same time? This entire app needs to be reworked from the ground up. I don't want to be mean, because I know a lot of people worked really hard on this, however, this just outright sucks; plain and simple.
