Changed my review from 4 stars to 1 because the app crashes all the time now. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I have two accounts; one on my LG tablet and the other on my iPhone 6S. Not once have I ever had a problem with the iOS version. This one is a different story. For some reason it's always "having problems with Google Play services." Then it crashes. I've had enough.
I originally downloaded this game to get items in a different game and that is when I fell in love with Dragon Soul! I had no idea I would enjoy this type of game so much, but I really do! It is fun getting drops, equipping and leveling your fighters. You get to run all sorts of extra missions beyond the campaign to get lots of cool goodies and unlock more heroes. The fight pit is fun. Guild mechanics are cool. I even bought the $2.99 monthly (they don't charge you until you say) and I get a ton of playtime out of this game. It is super great and I totally recommend it! *edit* I am STILL playing and loving this game a year later! It has been forever since a game could hold my interest for longer than a few months. These guys update all the time and I'm still having fun. I definitely recommend this game.
Ever since the new company took over the game is so glitchy. I bought a tablet so I could play it on there instead of my phone. Now 2 accounts that aren't mine keep showing up! And it asks for permission to access my phone calls and contacts?! I might have to quit this game. I used to really like it.
I have to 1 star everything for this game now. It used to be a solid 4 star, but since GREE took over in 2016, they've run it into the ground. Constant mistakes running contests, people not being refunded properly, massive game unbalance, loads of crashes. It's a complete mess, pleas don't waste your time any more.
Update 5/5/17: Game will no longer open for me. Have uninstalled and reinstalled, no luck. Game crashes on launch 100% of the time. Once a decent game, this has been ruined by GREEd, turned into pay (a lot) to play. Only purchasing large amounts of diamonds will allow you to progress since the latest patch.
Money not needed, but helps. -1 for a few issues. Gameplay problems from last few updates have been mostly resolved, but I still think there are too many different in-game currencies, most of which are slow to acquire, and too many items that are needed in large numbers, for multiple heroes, have atrocious drop rates.
