IRON FORCE - Fix It Chillingo
Ok just like to make some comments on this game Iron Force!
Firstly lets say when I first started playing I found it to be a good tank game.
Enjoyable and fun. Once playing a bit I noticed when purchasing diamonds there was an issue with the diamonds not being delivered to my account, but the game stated that I had received them but still needed to download.
Finally I received them after 48 hrs, but I was left feeling frustrated.
Then as I looked into purchasing a tank with diamonds I found that Chillingo were asking a extortionate amount of money for these purchases. I mean $50, $70 , $99 for a IAP on an IOS game .... Absurd!
I can buy Top Tier games for XBOX 360, PS3 or PC for a complete game for that money.
I am not against buying IAP when it's a good game but come on those prices for a game that clearly on IOS is an inferior game quality, so I say to Chillingo -
WHAT The Hell!
Try and justify to me how you can look at yourself in the mirror and still charge customers who you supposedly appreciate these ridiculous IAP Prices.
I don't understand how Chillingo marketing can't work out that they will make far more money by charging less for IAP as people will be more willing to buy them as the IAP's would be affordable to a larger amount of gamers that play their games and keep their gaming customers happy.
Now onto the game experience.
This game whilst fun and enjoyable to play is without doubt for me the most frustrating and clearly makes me insanely angry, so much so that I have stopped playing.
Now normally I would occasionally feel some frustration and anger in gaming when I felt annoyed at my lack of skill or if someone was getting the better of me.
This is not the case with Iron Force
I get furious with this game due to the lack of effort put into fixing the most stupid and serious flaws which affect my game play, like buggy servers and laggy networking which if I get disconnected still has the gall to use 3 of my fuel tanks, also the lag is always so bad as to let you race around a corner in the game trying to evade being shot only to let you get around the corner and to then have you die anyway. But it doesn't stop at that, you can then also drive through a dropped diamond but for some reason don't get given the diamond.
Also I could be firing at another enemy tank and having no affect and suddenly I am transported somewhere else on the map.
Sometimes both these things can happen at the same time, I run over a diamond and not get the diamond but then get transported somewhere else and have an enemy tank shooting at me and killing me and then I drop a diamond that another tank can get. These things are utterly annoying and frustrating to the point of anger.
Sometimes you start a round and all the Tanks are invisible and the map looses all its surface textures and we are left playing in a white map.
I am waiting for Chillingo to fix these issues before I will play again, but in the updates to date they have put work into things like "knowing who killed you" and adding a "couple new tanks" (whilst I think these are valid things to add) they should be focused on fixing these terrible game floors first.
I would like to hear a reply from someone like Patrick from Chillingo
And let us know what they are going to do to address these problems ???
Post if you agree guys as I have a lot of friends who feel the same.
I have a friend who goes stupidly angry with this game but I have never seen them angry at anything before...crazy stuff!
