Forge Of Empires (2014) Review

In Real Time Strategy

FForge of Empires is a MMORTS that sends the player on a journey through the early ages of civilization; the player is placed in control of a small Stone Age village and must take it through various eras with the aim of creating a powerful empire. This RTS has another feature that makes it stand out from the other games in the genre; the game has a single player campaign.

Every age in the campaign has specific goal to work towards so that the player can progress further into the game; the player must fill the era requirements to move on to the next one. More of the game will be unlocked as the game progresses and this acts as a long tutorial for the game which is perfect for players who are new to the RTS genre. During the later eras of the game, there will be provinces available which can be conquered.

Research is available later in the game and many items in the game must be research before they can be built; there are also requirements for being able to research new things for the city, these are usually resource or gold based. Each era also has a research requirement that needs to be met before the game will progress any further.

As expected from a RTS game; all actions use wait timers and resources are gained automatically from certain buildings. Resources can also be gained by defeating a neighboring province or other player cities. When conquering a province the player needs to defeat each segment and take the city that controls it.

The PvP in Forge of Empires is much more interactive then most other RTS games; combat is turn-based and uses a hexagon grid system. Each unit type in the game has different statistics and while every era introduces new units, there are early game units that can counter them. This allows for strategic and engaging combat between players. When a city is successfully attacked the player will be able to loot one of the buildings in it for whatever it contained.

Forge of Empires is a unique game in a crowded genre and spreading the game across several times in human civilization makes this game stand out in the crowd; like with all RTS games, there is an element of pay-to-win as there is an option to skip timers. The PvP is very engaging however it is very limited overall.

Mikael ChristensenHope for the 🤣😂 and make a future that it burns down after the event is ended and gets back to your inventory. Or ends up like a pile of ash and gets rebuild att the next winter event 😃inspired by the famous Gävle goat (Gävle bocken) en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%A4vle_goat

Linda WaddellI would choose the goat 🐐 Because the goat is a smart animal who forages hard for food, will eat a variety of vegetation, can run, jump and fight, and is a herd animal. Good characteristics for Forge of Empires players to emulate.

Free land expansions. Boost crates should contain more than one item, otherwise just give the item. Small crate: 3 items Med crate: 5 items Large crate: 10 items. I don't need any more cheep clutter hogging space in my cities. I need land. I don't need any more portraits unless they are paired with something awesome like diamonds.

Carrie PowellNeither. Prizes have been terrible lately and definitely not worth the amount of work one has to put in for them. Give something worthwhile that is space saving. Make the final reward something worthwhile.

Mike McIntoshWell the chicken at least is recognizable so I'll go with that. Hopefully you guys remember anything bigger than a 4x4 space reward is not really a reward at all. That said the cider mill and sun spear were awesome prizes please keep you streak going!

Robert L WibberleyWhy are you asking players to vote on a item to put in the winter event..when you have already chosen it.players are asking you to put some items in that help them in there games.get some devisors in there that listen.and get the ££££ signs out of your eyes.people will still buy if items good enough like I said before put in land spaces that can be added together,1/1 1/2 2/2 2/3. Instead of useless obs pics and gates..put in an item that players can turn builds around.or a big item that allows a space to be re.located.all these have been asked for.do something about it.

Ria HennessyAlways the province or the 900 goods. I am LMA but am in Industrial on the map. Fighting is not impossible but successes are rare...so getting goods traded uo to negotiate is a huge undertaking until I catch up with myself Gathering 900 goods of my age, though a biggie, was a cheaper and easier choice....and better for my guild. I stashed goods in advance so it didn't take long 😊

Francis ReddyIt all depends on where you are in the game... being in the LMA and being only able to conquer the province of Varseilles needing all the CA Goods is proving to be time consuming... and in a guild with nobody farther than you are doesn't help.

Alex StrazewskiIt would be nicer if we could see all the quests in advance so we could properly set ourselves up to do them. The way the current setup is, it keeps you from playing the game since you realize that by doing anything could potentially be the next quest and you have to wait a day to complete

Todd NobleNot the only one who feels that too much production necessary, and the game doesn't produce apples only friends help could be a little more productive to keep me interested. How about offering diamond specials, like 1500 for 10 or 12$ or fix it so diamonds aren't needed for everything.

Barbara SiegertI don't need more apples, stopped playing in the middle of the third part as there are no prices I want. I got the apple mill and one upgrade, that's enough. I don't need a second one or more upgrades. I have more than 1000 apples and hope there will be some prices the next days I can spend them for. That was really the most uninteresting event ever.

Krzysztof HejnarI would like to here opinion of person from development team who actually play this game about latest "improvement" For someone in first 100 on my server and playing it for over 4 years we need major boost to keep interest in a game 1500 coins found here and there does not make any difference with 3.0 billion coins in stack. All what's important is fp to level up gb. GvG was fan and it may be something what I would enjoy more if it is not always on the same time when I am at work or driving home . Why would not make 23 or 25 hours cycle before reset. It would make game more interesting and more people would participate since reset time will change. Other gvg issue is a lag on reset. It takes a minute to reload troops and additional minute to log in after " timing " error or other error. By the time you are back in a game your hex is already taken
