Good game but hard to beat better characters as th

Those with the better characters win, which makes this game all about having the best characters. Skill helps but when your
character is slower, it’s difficult to overcome. I do like the game and the matching seems relatively fair. I like the fact that
you can get chests even with ai victories as it

Great game, but needs more

Ive been playing since shadow fight 2, and im a real fan of the series, but the game needs more champions, but like, tbh other
that that the game is so good, great storyline, smooth gameplay, cool graphics, and if they add more champions i will change my
rating to 5 stars.

I love having a new platform and going one on one with other players, that said, there’s just not enough players on the servers
yet. That said it’s a gorgeous game and it’s nice to lose occasionally.

Amazing game with some shattering flaws. Hong joo is almost entirely broken as a character, partially because of the knock back he
has, and partially because of the insanely irritating rolling and grapple mechanics.

Spent 10 bucks and I’m regretting it now that I’ve run into these roll/grapple spa

The game is great without a doubt. For people who like these types of games and have followed Shadow Fight over the years, this is
a big step up. However, the trophy system is not well thought through. When facing against AI combatants you can only gain a
maximum of 20 trophies per battle and you lo

Every match is lags making it impossible to react to your opponent and the directional inputs hardly work (I know it’s not my
