    "This is one of my favorite war game apps that I use on my ipad. It's been working great but I have had a couple of issues since they pushed out the newest update. It crashes every once in a while and I have to restart it. Sometimes it will also hang. Hope they fix it in the next update."

    "Complete immersion into a real war time strategy! Spies, espionage, elite forces you name it this game has it. The main drawback is the lack of ability to play different scenarios, just have to replay the ones it has. Still one of the best war strategy games. "

    "This game is really fun and eats up a lot of my time. I should put it down, but it can be addicting. The theme is cool and somewhat family friendly, if you're okay with lasers and such. It is colorful and cartoon-like, which is fun, and like I said, the gameplay can be addicting. "
