Call of Dragons review
What is Call of Dragons?
Call of Dragons is a multiplayer fantasy mobile game, where you build city, level up heroes and artifact to fight against the Darkness. Compete and fight together with other player in an Real Time Strategy game with the latest graphics and new mechanics like the Behemoth…
OVERVIEW of Call of Dragons
Are you tired of outdated mobile RTS with archaic control system that limit your strategic gameplay. Or perhaps your looking for a fresh start in a game with the latest graphic? Well Call of Dragons is the newest release of FARLIGHT games, with a disney like approach characters of a fantasy worlds with behemoth waiting to be captured.
1. Graphics and Visual Design
One of the most gorgeous graphic that 2023 can offer, Call of Dragons has stunning visual from the character design to the environment itself. Game looks very good from both PC and Mobile.
2. Sound and Music
Another place where Call of Dragons excels is the sound and music, good background music and superb voice acting for the whole story.
3. Gameplay Mechanics
Call of Dragons mechanics works similarly to his big brother “Rise of Kingdoms” but let’s say it’s has been simplified. Different Faction, heroes variety and also loads of artifacts, all of them are easy to upgrade and understand. However limiting one type of unit for one march make the game lose a strategic part of RTS. Behemoth is a nice and new addition that is fun to do with your alliance, fighting, capturing and summoning them never gets old.
4. Story and Lore
Story is nice but the dialogues tends to a bit lengthy specially when you can’t skip them. You quickly lose interest in continuing the story line of Call of Dragons as things become unimportant and unrelated at some point.
5. Progression System
Call of Dragons have a very slow progression. Either you will run out of resources or you will have to wait for days, weeks and even month. Limited energy is a bottleneck when your going to level your heroes and artifacts. Both of them resets every season makes it a real pain to re level everything again.
6. Multiplayer and Competitive Gameplay
Call of Dragons suffers from the same problem of all Mobile RTS game, game balance! Don’t expect a fair fight, big spenders controls the game.
7. Events and Updates
The events of Call of Dragons are the okay, not the best or the worst in the mobile games. Events are frequent but gets repetitive every single week or month. However the best rewards are only for the highest spenders because of a ranking system.
8. Monetization and In-Game Purchases
Let’s all agree that Call of Dragons is a pay to win game. High spenders control the pace of the game. Also you have no limit how much you can spend daily making it a whale fest.
9. Community and Player Support
Overall, the Call of Dragons has a good community and player support which create sense of community among players. By actively engaging with the community FARLIGHT delivers in terms of content specially the ads.
10. Game Size and Compatibility
Being a bit over 4.5 GB, Call of Dragons is much lighter than it looks compared to other game of 2023. It also run great on both mobile and PC but occasionally lag from time to time.
Should you play Call of Dragons?
On the other hand, the game is very P2W as there’s no barrier or cap that limit you from spending in game. Things get really ugly in some server with whale alliance bullying everyone around, making the game unplayable for low spenders and F2p players.
Overall, Call of Dragons is a good example of a good game with specs in all category but has terrible balance between F2P and P2W. Ruining the hard work into a greedy cash grabbing game in the mobile industry where player will drop in and drop out for a short period of time.
