Rage of Bahamut Android, thumbnail 1
Rage of Bahamut makes a valiant attempt to make card games fun on mobiles. There's some potential beneath the various issues that mar the experience, but card veterans would do better to stick to more in-depth, better established franchises like Magic: The Gathering.

The aim of the game is to collect cards by winning them from opponents. To start with - after you've fathomed how to navigate the abysmal menus - you choose between three races: gods are largely defensive, demons are largely offensive, and men are a balance of both.

You'll still be able to use cards aligned with other races, but your own race receives special stat boosts and bonuses.

The quickest way to collect cards is to embark on quests. These single instance scenarios have you fighting enemies by hammering your finger on the screen to attack.

You lose stamina as you progress, eventually having to wait for the meter to recharge. It's a laborious way to progress, but the cards you receive often make the slog worthwhile. Each card can be enhanced and evolved, and you can sacrifice duplicate cards to further the progression of the original version of that card.

The ace of spades

Battling other players online is more enjoyable, but it's equally limited. To fight, you make sure your deck load-out is the way you want it, click a button, and watch a silent interlude play before learning whether you were victorious or not.

It's this uninspiring structure that lets Rage of Bahamut down. While the cards are vibrant and intricately designed, there's nothing else to look at or get excited about. There's not even a soundtrack to hum along to.

A strong social community ensures the multiplayer doesn't fall entirely flat, though. There's never a shortage of players to battle, the quick-fire nature of combat spurs you on to battle many players in a short period of time, and the ability to recruit five 'Fellows' - Bahamut's word for friends - in return for percentage stat bonuses enriches the social experience.

But for all its attempts at being deep and engrossing Rage of Bahamut simply can't rival its better contemparies. The fast and effortless process of battling players for instant victories is fine, but a fully formed battle system would have kept the action fun for much longer.

Its only saving grace is the fact that it's free, so you don't risk any money in giving it a go - you might find yourself addicted to card collecting, but we'd be surprised if the addiction lasts for a long time.

Colourful cards and serviceable social integration keep the fun alive for a short while, but a limited battle system quickly leaves you wanting more

Guys. This game is super fun. I totally recommend you to try it. Here's a tip. When you are finished with your tutorial and they ask for a referral code, try dug54730. I know the other reviewers have also been giving codes, but mine is better. It doesnt help me at all, only u. And you can get lots and lots of money and an extremely rare card if you use the code i gave u. Trust me. You will need a lot of money and very good cards later in the game so why not? Code: dug54730

Rage of bahamut is a great game. I tried it out to get some free platinum for Dark Legends, and I haven't been back to that game since. This is addicting. What I like so much about it is the variety of options for strategy and growth. There is also the element of chance as well, as to what cards you get in packs. You can easily play this game for free without spending money on packs, and have a great experience. I took a plunge once and spent $5, but that is it. I've been playing for about two months, and don't see myself stopping, or spending any more money on it.
Here are some tips when you start out:
1. Don't get suckered into trading rare/high rare/super rare cards. In most cases people are trying to scam you. Just make sure that you get a feel for the game first and do some research before you jump into trades.
2. Early on put everything into stamina, at least until 60-70 points. I found that I wanted to start building up a bit of defense and attack at that point just to fend off some of the attacks that were coming my way.
3. Do "fellow" invites when you get to level 3-4, and if someone doesn't take you up on them after a day or two, cancel them and invite someone else. You get 5 points added to your attributes for each fellow that signs on. This is an essential way to build your stats easily. I recommend this level because it will show you players of similar level and if you invite level 2 players, many of them will never come back to the game, leaving you without the benefits. I also look for players that already have 1 or more fellows. This shows that they understand that it is useful and are more likely to accept your request than someone who doesn't know what to do with them.
4. Don't use your holy powder or cure waters early on. They are much more valuable later on in the game. You used to be able to use them for currency and trade them for cards, but they recently did away with that. They are much more useful during major events rather than during mundane quests. You will understand when you play for a while. Just hold on to them though.
5. Use a code immediately after your tutorial. It is the only time that you will be able to do so, and the benefits are great. You get a rare card, which is useful early on, and 50,000 rupies, which frees you up to do a lot of things. You can use anyone's code and you will get the same thing. The person whose code you use will also benefit. If you feel that this has been helpful, I would appreciate it if you use mine: gma60657, but you can really use anyone's.
6. Think a bit about what faction you want to join (God/Man/Demon). You CANNOT change it after you choose. The basics are that God is relatively balanced between attack and defense. Man favors defense. Demon favors attack. You can make great decks with all of these factions, but at the higher end of play people seem to favor the Demon faction for a slightly higher attack advantage. This means that good demon cards can be harder to get eventually. Man cards will be the easiest to trade for and acquire.
