Mobile Strike

Review

The name “Mobile Strike” is quite a far cry from the actual gaming experience when you finally install this game. If you are reading this review before actually playing the game, you should probably look for another app to waste your time and precious money on. If you are expecting to get into exciting battles and base building efforts, you’ll be terribly disappointed.

This is a game of menus and in-app purchases. Sounds rough but it’s actually true. The constant ads and requests for upgrades or offers to make a purchase take away from the little thrill of actually sitting down to play this game. Mobile Strike lacks in every standard that makes a mobile game stand out, a fact only made worse by the incessant paywalls. Suffice to say that the concept has been entirely recycled and made worse.

Graphics and Sound 3/5

The game inundates you with menu upon menu which takes a lot away from the user experience. The well-contrasted dark background and colorful icons blend well, which is a plus for the developers. However, the UI is too complicated, probably done in an effort to make players think this game has much depth to it. The gameplay design is from an isometric perspective with a good amount of color and texture. The buildings are well-designed providing some relief from the lackluster visual appeal.

Story Plot 2/5

The objective of Mobile Strike is to build an army command center, far superior to that of your adversaries. You start out with very few resources and are supposed to upgrade your facilities by following on-screen prompts. Building alliances is crucial to your own survival. Mission modes include Base missions, Alliance missions, VIP missions, and Daily missions. These might seem different, but they depend on that incessant sequence of timers all the same.

Controls 2/5

Mobile Strike presents zero combat. Instead, it’s filled with the endless tapping of menus and action buttons, and one is completely left to fill the void of imagination with what would happen in the real simulation presented by the ads. There is too much tapping of menu buttons and on-screen prompts, which makes you wonder why this game is billed an epic action MMO in the first place.

Difficulty 2/5

If mindless loops of repeating the same building process over and over again count as difficult, Mobile Strike certainly makes the cut. Everything boils down to a timer and pressing menu buttons within that allotted time. Even the building simulation is nothing more than menu buttons to be tapped.

Conclusion

Mobile Strike is literally one of the worst combat MMOs ever released, made only worse by the fact that you have to part with tens, maybe hundreds of dollars to make any meaningful progress. The time and monetary investment are just not worth the effort. You might be drawn in by the numerous and big-budget ads, especially the one featuring a mega-star like Arnold Schwarzenegger himself, but the game offers nothing.
