Obviously ported straight from iPhone or Android or something like that. Just another Clash of Clans.

This garbage shouldn't even be released on steam. So annoying that every steam game now requires research to even see if its viable. Steam should really take more responsibility for the games within thier community.

Battle Islands is a pay-to-win, in-app-transaction, time sink, buy coins with real money so you don't have to wait four days for your next unit to build, poorly constructed mobile crap that you have played a thousand times before -- but this time, the convenience of your own PC, courtesy of the Steam Store!

If you're sitting on a mobile device, there are better things to do with your time than play this. If you're sitting at your computer, you have countless games available to you via Steam to play instead of this awful piece of garbage. Even dozens of fantastic free options on Steam.

This is the sort of thing that nobody wants. It isn't a game. It's a fishing-pole looking for a whale to land and suck dry of as many dollars via in application transactions as possible. it's everything that is wrong with games and everything that is becoming wrong with Steam.

If you know someone who tries to play this, cut off their hands. They'll thank you for it.

I'd review this if it could go more than 2 minutes without crashing. Even free, it's a waste.

Ok so, I figured i'd give this game a chance as I like ones with a similar concept. Big mistake... Any level can hit any level, which means me at my lowly level trying to save up for a HQ upgrade can get skunked by say... lvl 75?! When this happens there is literally nothing I can do to stop it because i've maxed out all my defensive upgrades at the same level as my HQ.... So while trying to save up for the MASSIVE amount to get my HQ up i'm constantly getting farmed to the point where I have zero supplies left and have to start the process all over!? No protection at all for ANY supplies saved?! No thank you. This should be called "spend money or get farmed islands".... Uninstalling....

Like the game but you end up paying for a top end game if you want to do anything and that should be in the info about this game above any thing else. It just cost to much to play.

Okay sooo i quited at 84lvl. I really enjoyed the game in the past BUT now at these levels when i`ve ranked up all buildings to the max and most of fortifications(didnt spend a cent btw) there's nothing to do than spending money to upgrade units in the command bunker which costs 4.000.000 or maybe a lot more + 20 days(?!?!!) of wait time??? Also its IMPOSSIBLE to gather that much when at around 500.000 i get attacked and lose money. Only camo will do the trick, but still not worth spending gold bars for it. It's embarrassing when you almost fully fortified your buildings and every attacker STILL destroys your base at 95%+++. Like really??I`ve made it this far to get stomped like that? Even units glitch most of the time when they cant reach the specific target and they start to run around which results in a huge fail/loss. Nonoooo... i won`t recommend it for sure. First it was somewhat cool but now its only a waste of time.

PS: Those 4 charges of Artillery Strikes in the communication center building is a disgrace. GG enemy base

This is basically the same thing as Clash of Clans except for the fact that this has a WWII time zone with different types of characters in it.

It can be enjoyable for a few first weeks, but sooner or later you simply hit the line where you can't gather enough resources for upgrading before being attacked by another player.
Lately, there have been some updates, which actually worsened gameplay a lot for me. Random disconnecting being even more frequent, for example. Oh and I got an alliance application bug, so now I can't enter or leave any. The window just tells me to wait.
I am going to wait, then. Elsewhere.

Cons:
- pay to win, of course
- terrible controls; obviously an adapted touchscreen game. Clicking the buttons with mouse is incredibly frustrating.
- lots of bugs. The game often disconnects.
- inequality of the players. The ability to fight each other is only limited by rating ("dog tags"), not by your levels. This allows a lvl 80 player attack a lvl 20 player.

This game is kind of fun and have spent hours playing it. Ultimately though it is a giant time sink with insane times to upgrade and ultimately will require money to get anywhere. It's a lot like Boom Beach but with way less balance and is ultimately ruined once you reach higher levels. Also the top 100 board is almost all bots. This is completely ignored by the creators and the more time goes on the more I think the bots belong to the people who actually made the game in an attempt to make it artificially competitive though they will never aknowledge many of the top 100 alliances are bots. You can look at individual players and one alliance has twice the listed dog tags (victory points) than all the players added togther. It's one thing to have the game be set up so that it ultimately requires money, it's another to try to absolutely deceive the player about the game to obtain it.

More Cons: The game is ultimately broken on so many levels. One major flaw that they have never fixed is the fact that when your troops land they very often will get stuck in spots and run in circles or just stop moving all together. You can't control the troops after they land (unlike Boom Beach) so there is nothing you can do. You also can be raided by any level and most high level people will because it's a very cheap and efficient way to build vicotory points to raise your ranking. When teams start to figure out which alliances are bots that are artificially propped up the admins just add additional dog tags to them as a team total (that doesn't match the individual player totals) and the cycle continues.

Recap: The game is super bugged. MUST spend money after a certain point. The developers deceive the players with tons of fake accounts (they seem to be almost half of all players), the game constantly crashes. If you check it out and like the concept, play the game this rips off and download Boom Beach on iOS or other platform for a fair and balanced free to play game.
