I'd take being overpowered over grinding for hours and making no progress any day. Haha

If I could've gotten the best armor in Blood and Glory II without having to sign up for a Discover card or check my credit report....I woulda dunnit.

Eternity Warriors 2 was the only Glu title that didnt have a paywall for me until almost the very end.

I have to agree the sequel seems a bit more lenient...so far.

But the first one, even on the first onslaught gets brutal towards the last levels. And it still has more onslaughts to go. Like 10 more onslaughts each with 30 levels. Insane. I'm playing both right now.

Why bother to play Glu games when you can buy greater variants just for one buck?

It's easier to get it for free, hit a pay wall, curse at the skies and delete the game than paying for it and not like it.

If not for the aggressive IAP pushing, Glu makes some pretty decent games.

Glu Games Strike

I'm very serious. They rip people off and try to milk them of their hard-earned cash. It's not fair to people. If the strike is effective enough, they can do something to solve this problem, like making a premium version for each of their freemium games.

They without a doubt have talent in developing games. But until they make a good premium one, I won't download a single thing from them.

Just like Gameloft and many other companies. (Unfortunately) F2P is currently the most successful marketing model on the AppStore. You can make a boycott but that won't help as long as there is the horde of sheep which follow from one mainstream freemium title to another.

Gameloft also, to my knowledge, has never removed an app from the store. I think the original Asphalt might be available for DL. I've long boycotted Glu not only for their pricing methods, but the way they have bought some small studios responsible for great games (they bought the small team that made the Spyro the Dragon series, for example), pulled their apps off of the store, and often shuttered the studios completely.
