Quality game design, interesting graphics, online multiplayer, exciting plot
Glitches, is lagging, crashes from time to time
Galaxy Legend for Android is pretty amazing. It’s a solid RPG with some very interesting visuals. I think more could be done to make the game play itself better, but the ability to wage intergalactic war with online players is very cool. Prepare for long download times and sluggish interactive menus, but this game will be beloved by fans of this genre, for sure.
Galaxy Legend is very well done. This is a true RPG experience. The opening visuals and animations are actually the best action in this game. It opens more like an IMAX movie than a free app. I just wish the play itself could have captured some of those stunning visuals and movement. You are the commander of a galactic force, charged with saving the universe. Build up your forces, strategize the best plan of attack and compete in challenges and explorations as you save humanity.
The controls are just simple screen taps. Move your ship along the battle grid to explore and do combat. The fights unfold more like a turn by turn chess match; decide the best fighting formations for your team and attack the enemy. Once the battle begins, you don’t do anything but sit back and watch, but it's all quite engaging. And like any RPG, this one relies heavily on imagination, strategy and patience.
The sounds are excellent, and generally the game rendered well. However, I did run into some annoying glitches and screen lockups. This one does drain the battery fast and I think it's best suited for tablets. Play on smaller screens really wouldn't have the same enjoyment quality, nor could the battery handle it for long.
Galaxy Legend is immersive and really makes you think. This is the kind of game you’ll devote a lot of time to, or just set it aside right from the word go. It requires a commitment to the world it creates; the story is certainly worthy and it looks good. I just wish they could have added a little more action and interactivity.
