I adore Celebrity Battles and I like collectable card video games, so it should mention fairly a little that I couldn’t evaluate Star Wars: Pressure Collection due to the fact that the bare-bones production worths transformed me off that much.

As a collectable card game, it’s apparently okay, however it’s so unacceptably hideous that it feels like additional like a last-second cash-in compared to a marquee title, and I couldn’t play it for greater than a few min prior to it really felt like a complete wild-goose chase.

Today, Celebrity Wars: Assault Team hits the App Store, and I started it up with a major knot in my tummy, anticipating the worst. That is, till I bore in mind that this new video game comes from the still-fresh Disney-Lucasarts deal, while the previous title was an item of Konami. And wow, the distinction is promptly noticeable.

For beginners, Assault Team isn’t really being marketed as a collectable card video game, but it still features as one. You collect “heroes” cards, construct your team deck, and handle opponents in turn-based battle. You can unlock much more characters by purchasing “Hero Crates” as opposed to card packs, however completion outcome of all this is the timeless card video game encounter.

Where Force Collection offered its tale method with cringe-worthy fixed images and content bubbles, Assault Group’s project is a considerably even more polished event. A large selection of unbiased await on numerous planets, and the battles are played out in totally left 3D atmospheres with computer animated opponents and some quite glossy unique results. In short, it feels even more like you’re playing a movie-inspired RPG compared to an actual card video game, and it’s a great deal additional fun as a result of it.

As your group auto-navigates each stage you experience battles with iconic Celebrity Wars enemies and animals, every one of which have to be routed just before you proceed. Depending upon the makeup of your team, you’ll release full-blown assaults or more strategic steps like having one of your characters taunt the resistance to supply cover for the remainder of the group.

Once you have actually acquired a decent group deck you could challenge various other real-world players for supremacy. These fights do not impact the tale missions however could supply incentive items and graft that will give you an edge throughout all the game’s methods.

If you were as shut off as I was by Force Collection, give Assault Team a chance, given that it’s most likely the experience you wanted during. The game is free on the App Store.
