I thought a long time whether I suggest the game or not. Now I could make a decision because of DR Studios.
Positive:
  • The design of the game elements is good
  • Even if this game is a P2W title you can get everything without spending gold, you just need time (but a lot of ;) ). There are a few possibilities to get gold without spending money for it
  • I haven’t found annoying bugs in the game, more in point negative
Negative:
  • You cannot say in this game is tactic. It is the simple concept mass wins, most of the time the time is the thing which saves you from more damage especially on the early levels. Later you can also
    Win battles with your defending. The balancing isn’t really good, many battle ships can be the dead to every island only the Gun Turret has a chance against them. The tactic is place first tanks and behind them
    Troops
  • Permanent disconnects after end of fights. Sometimes I haven’t got the loot of a fight because of the failing synchronizing with the server.
  • What strengthened my decision were the recent server problems. Server problems can always happen but it can’t be that you lose your save game, in which you put a lot of effort and time, because of that.
    Dear developers why you can’t do it like it is in steam, make a local save game and a server save game so that you have a save game even the server crashes. Yes I know they have a support for this problem but it is now
    Nearly a week since I have contacted them.
Conclusion: You can definitely try this game because it is free to play but you shouldn’t spend money for it because the system is unsafe and there aren’t new inventions.


ich habe lange überlegt ob ich das Spiel empfehle oder nicht. Nun allerdings konnte ich dank DR Studios eine Entscheidung treffen.
positiv:
  • das Design der Spielelemente ist gut gestaltet
  • obwohl das Spiel P2W ist kann man alles mit Zeit erreichen. Es gibt auch Möglichkeiten Gold zu bekommen ohne es zu kaufen.
  • Bugs die das Spiel ausbremsen habe ich nicht gefunden, weiteres im Punkt negativ
negativ:
  • Taktik kann man das nicht nennen. Es funktioniert nach dem simplen Prinzip Masse gewinnt, denn meistens wird man nur von der Zeit vor größerem Schaden bewahrt besonders am Anfang, wenn man seine Insel
    noch nicht so gut aufgerüstet hat. Später kann man dann auch mit den Verteidigungen so manche Schlacht gewinnen. Allerdings ist das balancing noch nicht wirklich ausgereift, so sind Schlachtschiffe in
    großer Anzahl der Tod für jede Insel, diese können nur effektiv von der Gun Turret ausgeschaltet werden. Das bisschen Taktik beschränkt sich stark auf die richtige Wahl der Truppen erst Panzer dahinter
    Infanterie.
  • ständige Verbindungsabbrüche nach Kampfende. So war es zumindest bei mir nach einem erfolgreichen Sieg gibt es nichts nervigeres als wenn das gesammelte Lot nicht angerechnet bekommt, da die
    Synchronisation mit dem Server fehlgeschlagen ist.
  • Was mich jetzt allerdings endgültig zu meinem Entschluss bewegt hat waren die kürzlichen Server Probleme. An und für sich können Technische Probleme immer auftreten, allerdings kann es nicht sein
    das man seinen Spielstand dadurch verliert in den man viel Zeit und vielleicht auch Geld gesteckt hat. Liebe Entwickler macht das doch einfach wie Steam es wird einmal lokal gespeichert und einmal
    Serverseitig, dann hat man wenigstens noch seinen Spielstand lokal und muss nicht wie ich wieder von Level 1 anfangen (davor 49). Es gibt zwar einen Support der sich um dieses Problem kümmert, es ist
    jedoch schon 1 Woche her das ich diesen kontaktiert habe und noch keine Rückmeldung bekommen habe.
Fazit: Man kann das Spiel definitiv ausprobieren da es free to play ist verliert man dabei nichts, allerdings würde ich kein Geld investieren, da das System zu unsicher ist und es keine neuen Innovationen
gibt.

Fairly simplistic. Nothing really interesting about it, but I like it IMO, although I cant reccomend this for a PC crowd, so I'll give this a somewhat decent rating of 6/10.

Let's try to leave out all "it's pay-to-win" kind of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t, because let's be honest - 97.4% of games with micro-transactions are that way. And this game isn't the worst of it's kind! since you get enough of gold from leveling (which is easy - just build troops) and crate drops.

What really ruins this game for me is matching system! I don't get what match making is based on.. How come I get pummeled by players twice my lvl, twice tag amount or army lvl but never see someone who is half my lvl in any of those categories? And sometimes I think that when I get over some money threshold I get lit up like a christmas tree for all the high lvls: I fight battle after battle with equal levels (sometimes winning, sometimes losing) and when I get closer to building something expensive out of nowhere I get rolled over by someone who sweeps my defenses like if they weren't upgraded at all..

Talking about battles I like the idea! You get different units which go for specific buildings and you have to decide were from you launch them so that you get the best outcome for yourself. Same goes for building your base. You have to make smart layout to slow your attacker. On the plus side you can change layout as many times as you want without extra charge.

What the heck? this game is died, I mean like when you look in your allanice/global chat its like 1 month/ 10 Days Old what he heck? play clash of clans where everyone is active and actually have clan/Group wars and you can talk with other people, cause when your in the game it feels like your alone like I said before in the alaince and global they are so old it takes like a few days for people to reply to your things you said in the area. (PLAY CLASH OF CLANS THIS GAME IS SO SUCKY!) *edit: (Most of the Postive Reviews are people who just says "good game" or something like that ._. be more detail into it you other reviwers who just say that ._.

Great if you use facebook, and or have friends

terrible if you dont use FB and dont want to pay cash, its a cash grab game

fun other than that.

cant control troops everything is auto no real tactics in battle until later in game, and even then meh
not terrible but I cant recommend this due to FB attachment and pay out the rear requirements.

EDIT: also the game will disconnect you for no reason claiming you arent active. even if in battle
you still get DC due to inactivity if you dont constantly wave the mouse around.. its a terrible bandwidth method. near ends of missions id get dc'ed as my troops take forever to mop up waaah

game gets a lower mark now. far lower still fun but no tactics and lack of any rational thinking dev wise makes this, pass or pay real money and play.

To begin with, the Battle Islands is not a strategy game - it's just a "click and wait" something embedded in the realities of the Pacific WWII. There is not a lot of elements to analyze and manage. The game mechanics is strange - it generates the need to purchase units in the various objects which manifests itself, of course it follows with need to click on each building separately...etc. Despite winning the battle yur spared units are lost and you need to train them again... :( The game is very simple. Thats becouse its cross-platform shared title. I think it can be played even by a monkey or a chicken. Moreover, our units on the battlefield behave idiotically which combined with Imited time for the battle, results in the great unknown at the end. I do not recomend this game - mutch better idea is to buy for little money some older titles like the Settlers or Age of Empires - a real strategy games.

Final score 1/10

I'm sorry but this game is crap. I originally found it on the PS4 but then I moved to PC gaming. I redownloaded this but it is a VERY dead game. So I guess easy pickings? But honestly unless you want something to open up for five min at a time then don't download this. I could not care less about micro-transactions but it really just comes down to the game being boring, which it is.


Soooooooooooooooooooooooo boring. Don't get this game. Not worth any time at all.





And if you do get this game then DON'T BUY ANYTHING!

Did I not write a review for this already? Oh yeh, I didn't see this insignifigant and bad game in my library. A WW2 era of CoC was a good idea, but this game is NEVER updated. It requires NO strategy and in the 525 hours I've played this game I've never been attacked. They also changed how the characters look, which sucks. They were good already. And even if you look at global chat, the last message written is probably 3 days old. No one plays. I reccomend this game as a timepasser. You will get 20 hours of gameplay out of it probably. Just don't trust this to amaze you.

It was funny at first, but after, I notice that it was so like a cell phone game, so I search in google play, it is a port of a cell phone game, if you like to wait and wait for things like training tropes or things like that, this is your game, but, if you want a PC game, do not install it

TO begin with, this is a Facebook game that is a clone of the popular Clash of clans. Unlike alot of Facebook games this DOESN'T have an energy bar, what it does have is gems (or gold in this case) that can be used to speed up construction of buildings or recruitment of soldiers, this currency is rewarded for free from achivements and leveling up. While gold can't be used to buy and premium troops (who would have boosted stats), whoever buys the most gold will have the highest level and more troops to use repeatedly, so its P2W.

In the settings there are three choices (count them 3!), Music on/off, Sound Effects on/off, and Connect to Facebook so you can play with your friends because using the Steam friend sytem would be to difficult to use.... -_-

Gameplay- Exactly like Clash of Clans, boring, and meant for mobile games.

My final rating- 1/10, the 1 for not having an energy bar, if it had an energy bar I would just uninstall Steam completely, everything in game can be gotten for free but the ones who drops $100's will be on top of the leaderboards, this game should of stayed on mobile/Facebook and never brought to Steam.

Do steam a favor and not give this game any cash, because if you do, MORE Facebook games will come to Steam trying to get the same kind of money out of you people.

This game is absolute garbage. I am getting sick and tired of seeing these Mobile-To-PC ports showing up on Steam. The developers were so lazy that they didn't even change some of the words, because there are still words like "Tap" instead of "Click". This is literally just a mobile game, with MAYBE better graphics. I wouldn't know that though since you can't adjust any of the graphics. It has all of the micro-transaction as a regular mobile game, too. And I hope you like not seeing the bottom part of the game, because since there is no way of changing the resolution, the game gets cut off by your tool-bar. Don't even waste your time with this game. It's horrendous.
