Ok, I have put a lot of time, effort, and some money into this game.
Overall at this point I must say that I would not recommend this game.

Basically when you first start playing the game it captures your interest quite well. Being based on the Marvel characters and universe was enough to do that for me. Upgrading your roster and characters from star level 1 to star level 2 is challenging but enjoyable as you can easily see the improvements. So you get a nice feeling of progression.

Unfortunately once you start to move past star level 2 characters into star level 3 and 4 characters things start to go bad.

Upgrading your roster and characters from star level 2 to star level 3 becomes a nightmare because you first have to upgrade them 50% before they start to become useable. The playing time alone to gather the required resources to upgrade one star level 3 character 50% could take you a month. Throw in the fact that there is no scaling or bracketing in this game and players that already have full power star level 3 characters will sap points and rank from anyone below them and you start to get an idea of just how difficult a task this is.

For arguements sake, if you were going to spend 'real money' to upgrade a star level 3 character 50% instead of just playing the game it would cost you about US$100+. If you were going to buy all the powers for one character and max them out completely it would cost about US$400-US$600. So really, I would assume most people are inclined to play the game to gather the required resources instead.

Note that everything costs more as you progress. Characters from each star level catagory; ie: 1, 2, 3, and then 4 have an increase in 'experience' levels, hit points, damage per gem, and super power damage levels by almost double. But coming with that is an almost doubling of resources and costs involved for said characters.

This all adds up to the fact that the time you invest in the game has to increase as well. Where you might have been able to do well putting two hours a day into the game you will then have to put in three and then four hours a day. This doesn't mean all in one sitting just total overall time played per day. There maybe up to three events running simultaneously and if you wanted to do well in all of them you can sink alot of your time into it. You may feel obliged to do this since events are usually put into 'Seasons' and you may not see an specific event again until the next season or two in the future. 'Seasons' typically seem to run for the length of a month.

It's kind of awkward how events are setup. Each event usually lasts for 2 days or if longer are broken down into 'stages'. These longer events of up to a week are broken into 'stages' that last for 2 days each. What happens is to earn 'points' and keep you 'rank' up compared to everyone else, you have to play the 'stages' over and over as many times as 'plausible' in that 2 day period. 'Plausible' in that there is a 'full points' refresh timer of around 2.5 hours and also there is a point-catch-up (rubberbanding) system where the longer you wait between replaying the 'stage' the more points you can get. Also, each time you replay a 'stage' the difficulty and level of the enemy characters increase.

There are players that gain rank #1 and play the game every 2.5 hours even throughout the night. That is the type of competition you will be up against.

Ok, I want to end this review now as I think I have given you an insight into what is involved if you wanted to build and progress a roster of characters in this game. Or, what to expect once you have moved on from establishing a foundation.

A few other things that are really off putting:
A) Characters have been changed by the developers out of the blue. Usually termed as 'nerf' where characters are weakened or resulting in less useable. How annoying for those players that have spent time/resources building said characters up. You can sell characters, but you will only get a pittance of what you have put into them.

B) There have been a myriad of server issues over the time I have played this game. Sometimes this has had a catastrophic effect on the scores/ranks etc of whatever event was running at the time. Sometimes the developers have given out a form of compensation but not always. Two recent events had server glitches that cost me ranking high. Unfotunately they happen in the later half of the week long events when you have alreadly invested alot of time.

C) The free-for-all pvp system means that those with maxed out or high level characters can just stomp over everyone below them. How frustrating to come out of winning a battle for 20 points reward to be greeted by a message that you have been attacked by half a dozen players twice your level losing 200 points. They really need to incorporate some form of scalability or player bracketing to make play balanced.

I would recommend avoiding this game unless you are happy to invest all your free time into it.

I really wanted to like this game, but the path chosen by the developers makes this one of the most frustrating experiences with a game I have ever had. The hours I have listed on this game are not technically accurate as I had it running in the background for days/weeks at a time. However I have easily put in 100's of hours into trying to like this game, hoping that the devs would fix the issues and it would improve. Ultimately I finally realized that there was near zero chance that would happen because the devs want the game to be this way.

First the lets talk about the good - If you enjoy PuzzleQuest you will like the mechanics, the incorporation of the Marvel license is topnotch both with writing and character design. If you can be content with just playing the story missions and only a small subset of the available champions then go ahead.

However if you are like me and want to play with the new champions when they are released and play the special events then you will pay. And if you pay realize that it is only a matter of time before that which you paid for is nerfed or sidelined or otherwise invalidated by whatever the newest cash grab from D3 is.

Here is how it works, lets say you have a set of beginning characters (called 2 star for their rarity) and are having fun. You see that a new character is being released (omg Nick Furry?! I want to play that one too!). In order to get covers for that character you have to buy them with real money, oh except you can't really buy them straight you have to buy a "pack" and hope you get the covers you want (along with a bunch of stuff you don't want). If you aren't willing to go that route then you will have to jump through some very specific hoops, namely you will be "competing" with other players for a chance to win the cover. You do this by direct competition (through a very very broken PvP style contest that I am not even going to get into its so bad) or by grinding away at special missions, missions that are designed to be overpowering and that will wound or kill your characters (requiring you to "rest" or buy medpacks with money). I don't know if I can stress how grindy these missions will be if you actually want a shot at the new cover, we are talking hours of playtime, but what is even worse is D3 picks the times you need to play. This is ultimately why I had to stop, in order to be successful with the rubber-banding and the like you had to be playing near the finish of each sub-event and each main event. That means you can't even just grind it out on your own time you needed to be hardcore during specific hours (forgot real life commitments). What I finally realized was there is no end game. That process described above is it. It doesn't get easier just harder, and not from a skill level just from a time commitment and frustration level. D3's entire model is to reward low level players greater then high level players to make them think rewards are quick and easy. Once you are hooked however you will constantly lose you chance at the new covers to the next wave of new players getting their hooks set. No only do I not recommend this to anyone I would be very cautious about ever playing anything from D3.

♥♥♥♥ this game. Literally ♥♥♥♥ this game.

Why? Because it is actually really REALLY FUN. And THAT is exactly the Problem!

How so you ask? Simple! Because it is yet another free-to-play, pay-to-win game. It is a good game disguising a hideous marketing strategy. It is absolutely repulsive.

Because you're gonna start playing this game and go "Oh man! This game is really fun! I want to keep playing it!" but then slowly the realization starts to seep in... YOU CAN'T. Why not? Well, lets see here... did you lose that last round? Bit of random bad luck and didn't quite make it? Want to try the round again? WELL TOO BAD!! Your heros are out of health now and won't be full again until THREE HOURS FROM NOW. Hey, did the game just give you a sweet new character as a reward for beating a stage? Great! Too bad you're out of spaces for new characters in your hero roster that you can only expand using the game's premium currency! Oh and by the way, your reward expires in five days and then you'll lose it forever, good luck trying to farm premium currency through the stages in game! Oh, I'm sure it won't take you very long if you've got a strong team of heros to keep plowing through with... Oh, what's that? They're all out of health again? Guess you're ♥♥♥♥ed! LOLS!! Seriously, this is the only game I've ever played that gives you rewards that you're never able to actually use.

And it all just spirals on downhill from there. You want to get anywhere in this game? "Give us your money!" And not just some of your money... ALL OF YOUR MONEY! Because lets face it, it would be EASY to release a normal, playable version of this game for say $15... but they don't want just a little of your money. They want ALL OF YOUR MONEY. There is a never ending supply of money that this game can drain away from you. Because that's how it was designed. And it is a damned crying shame!

Avoid this piece of garbage like the Plague. Or Ebola. Whatever horrifying desease floats your boat. XP

The writing for this game is just so bad. I mean, the game is subtitled Dark Reign, so one would think it would follow the story of the Dark Reign story ark, but the story is so distorted that it barely has anything to do with the Dark Reign. And there is no new content at all, events just repeat in a circle...

This version of the game features the flaws of the mobile version. As detailed in reviews below, the mechanic for health is an issue, and then there is the AI, which is designed to cheat. It will be able to use abilities it does not have the points for, and Team Ups are messed up in the AI's favour.

The final thing which makes me uninstall the game less than half an hour into playing, is that you cannot link your mobile and Steam accounts together, despite the quote from the developer that "The PC version runs off the same code and servers as the mobile versions. Battle against anyone, regardless of what device they're using", that couldn't be any further from the truth.
So, they hope you will double dip, spending money in both versions. Well, not this guy, and hopefully you won't either :) If you're thinking about installing this version and you're already invested in the mobile version, change your mind.

This game is another in a long line of games created to part people with there cash in an unending stream. These games are the bane of the gaming industry and will lead to another crash like we had in 1983. Do not spend in game cash on this game play it but dont spend any cash. It does not deserver your money, the freemium model needs to die.

Okay, so this clearly isn't a Triple A title but it can still be good right? Right?

The answer is no. It isn't. It has good elements of fun. It's fairly entertaining as you gather new heroes, upgrade the ones you like, have cool and sometimes very useful special attacks. So what's the issue then? It's boring and poorly made.

Well first off, the game is basically a Mobile Game ported to PC without ANY of the things a PC port should have. It doesn't have a resolution that would be fitting for a PC and instead looks like you're playing a Tablet game on your monitor. While that may not sound that bad, I've noticed even some of the UI choices are still touch screen like. It overall feels down right aweful to look at for extended periods of time.

Next is the gameplay itself, it's very barebones as the best animations you will see is the little Gems going POOF from chain completions. The special attacks consit of your character of choice flying into the center of the screen and waggling a bit with some flashing lights and sounds.

Once you figure out if you can enjoy the gameplay or not comes the ways you upgrade your heroes. It's basically random lottery as you have to get another copy of your hero to upgrade their skills, after which you then need to use ISO-8 the magical nonsense item to then increase their level. You also can only have so many heroes before you need to purchase more slots. Now that isn't too bad as it's normal, the problem is you can only use what is basically a "Money" currency which is limited as you only get some per day unless you wish to pay for it. The same currency is used for pretty much everything and they will try their damnedest to get you to waste it on heroes, upgrades, level increases, etc. Then they shoehorn in some Healing character nonsense that basically ripped off from Facebook games.

The story missions try ever so hard to entertain and keep you interested but the lack of voices, new images and basically an interesting story that hasn't been heard over and over again, brings it down on its knees. The more interesting and rewarding stories are locked out until you play and gather Strong/OP heroes. It's not even recommended that you try them WHATSOEVER until you're very well off into the game as they will not only stomp you out but cause you to need "Health packs" just to recover and continue playing the game. The next part of story missions is that they often can be replayed for different loot, the problem is even though it says 1/4 things to be looted you can still gain something that ISN'T an option as loot. I've gotten ISO-20 which wasn't an option instead of ISO-100 or another Iron Man. When all you do is want to have 4/4 in loot and you have to replay the same, easy, boring level repeatedly just to make sure you have everything useful from that mission, it gets very boring.

The art direction is okay at best; you have art work that doesn't look the best on these big screens as it's made for much smaller ones. The characters don't have the best animations as they seem more and more like paper cutouts than they do powerful superheroes. It's pretty underwhelming watching them play out an unskippable animation.

The sound is basically the same as the art direction, bland, boring and not that interesting. I was really hoping for some good Marvel action tunes.

In short, the game starts off okay but slowly turns into a long road through Pay to Play. Not too bad if played in short, short bursts but very boring if you're going to play for hours at a time.

3 Broken Gems out of 10.

This is your standard match 3 game, but with characters from Marvel and leveling. If you like these three things, it's probably a good choice...unlesss you ever want to play without an internet connection.

I love in NYC, and þis would be þe perfect type of game to play on my Windows 8.1 tablet on the subway...but I can't. This is a huge problem and so I cannot recommend this game unless offline play is enabled.

Pros:
1. It's a nice game! Has a Bejeweled-like turn-based battle system with level up system.
2. It's free to download.

Cons:
1. For slow connections, it's a big file with around 700+MB.
2. Requires an internet connection.
3. It would be enjoyable if you have friends that will play too (and beneficial).

Free to play but hard to avoid paying if you want to do well. I have been playing this for a while now, sunk to much money into it and regret it to some extent. However, having paid a bunch of money into it I now can compete to some extent, there are still a ton of people out there who will completely own me without trouble but for the most part if I want to I can rank high in the challenges. Anyway, I do play this game daily, I enjoy the 30 minutes or so I play and sometimes get very involved in a specific type of event (the non-pvp events). Good overall game, I just wish they never nerfed the healing of black widow...:(
