Fate/Grand Order (English) Positive Reviews
Not your typical gachaFate/GO like its other gacha brethren has a ranking for its servants and craft essences in the for of a star ranking between 1 and 5. Now usually when it comes to a gacha game it's implied that the more stars tacked onto something the better it is. This is where Fate/GO alters from the rest of the gacha scene as a whole, in that just about any servant can be viable given team composition and craft essence attached to them. By far the best example of this comes in the form of 3 star lancer cú chulainn. While cú may have lower stats than 4 and 5 star units, his skills are what make him so amazing. With out going into depth on cú's skills I'll just summarize with that they essentially make him unkillable if you use them wisely. Cú is so good that he actually makes some 4 star units look bad in comparison. As for craft essences there are many that have similar effects with various levels of bonuses depending on rank, but there are still many unique craft essences in the 3-5 star range that can find use on just about any servant. The point of this long block of texts is just to say that stars don't define what is good or bad in this game. Don't be afraid to play around with low star units because some can potentially out class high star units if used to their fullest potential. With this in mind I hope if you're just now downloading Fate/GO that you keep this information in mind when you play and to have fun, I know I am..Version: 1.10.0
Fun, addictive, but sketchy business practicesThis game is fun. There’s no question I’ll continue to play this game for some time to come. I’m not even a fan of the fate series, but I enjoy collecting characters and drifting through the quests when I’m bored or at work. However, I almost deleted the app after discovering some very questionable business practices. I know this is par for the course concerning mobile games, but I’m still disappointed.
There are occasional special events that would allow you collect 5 star (the highest) characters. Normally one would use the in game currency they’ve accrued to do so. However, the special events only accept purchased (with real money) in game currency to do so. Against my better judgement I was going to buy some. Here’s where it was over the top for me. You need 30 credits. However, you can only buy 25, 4, and 1 - or spend more for an amount over 25.
All that said I will continue to play this game. It is very much a game you can succeed at and never spend a dime of real money. So why write this review? Because ... I’m just disappointed. I think the state of affairs of the gaming industry is really sad. It’s about making money first, and I hate seeing that. Don’t spend real money on this game..Version: 1.37.0
NP Levels don’t really matter...People here are complaining about how you “need multiple copies of the same 5 star servant to bring out its max potential”. That’s really a stretch. When you feed another 5 Star servant to your main copy, it levels up their Noble Phantasm and makes it a bit better. But I think you guys are misunderstanding the point of that mechanic. It doesn’t really do that much to warrant you spending money to NP Level 5 that servant. It’s there so that people who accidentally get that servant again in the Gacha don’t feel like they wasted too much of their money for nothing, since there’s no use for multiple copies of a servant aside from feeding it to your original copy and leveling its Noble Phantasm.
Also, if you’re getting stuck on Okeanos, you’re just not playing the game correctly. When I was playing the Japanese version, my luck was pretty bad, so I only had one 4 Star from the guaranteed starting roll. (Whoever said they were lucky to get a 4 star servant by rerolling their account is a liar because you’re guarenteed a 4 star servant or higher on your first 10 roll) I heard Okeanos with a team of Siegfried(4Star), Medusa(3Star), Mashu(3Star), and Sasaki Kojiro(1Star). The game isn’t hard. And personally, for me, my waifu/favourite character in the game is Mashu, so I don’t need to spend a dime trying to get her because she’s the starter servant..Version: 1.9.0
Great game, also please stop complaining about the gachaI really love this game and the characters! The gameplay is also really good and strategic too and it can even favour 1 Star - 3star Servants as there are plenty of videos where people clear challenge quests with only 1-3 star Servants. This is what makes Fgo really unique compared to other gacha games as even if the servant is not a 5star, it can still work really well and even better than 5stars!
So stop complaining about the gacha! There are so many good Servants that are not 4 star or 5 star and they even give out really good welfare 4 stars like Chloe and Rider Kintoki. And you can even borrow your friends 5 star Servants. If you still can’t clear story or hard even maps you can use command spells, but lets be honest, it is all up to the player skill in the end so if you are complaining that the game is too hard and you need better Servants, just get better at the game, it’s that simple. Many “hard” stages of the story can be soloed by a single servant (I Euryale who is a 3 star soloed the hardest stage of Gawain and soloed lancetoria with a friend’s Okita.
So in summary, get better at the game if you can’t pass it. 1-3 star Servants can carry you a long way. Besides, the average players luck shouldn’t be so abysmal that they can’t get a 4-5 star servant after playing for a while..Version: 1.21.0
Never seen something like this.Out of all tue gatcha games i have played, this one makes me feel the best. Why? Obviously because: 1- i like the anime, unfortunatelly if you dont like the anime then you will soon be living the game because it makes you work too much for an anime you consider second or third.
2- the care given to every character is priceless, i mean 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 stars and even the one that has no stars. They all have something to unravel.
3- all characters have 3 skins, when you ascend one time, you see another skin, the third time, another, the fourth, a new card picture. I was so excited to see my favorite go and look cooler and cooler and know more about him. (Even more than the anime) this happens with all rarities compared to other games that only has content for high stars.
4- customizable, even if you reach max level, if you dont like the skin you can change it back to the previous ones. There is no other game like this in the gatcha mobile games, at leas i have never seen it myself.
5- as hard as it gets, you still have the chance to make your dreams come true, if your favorite is medusa, a three star, when you max level her, you can keep going and increase her level cap, even higher to that of a five star level cap..Version: 2.9.1
A great way to learnI love the Fate series. I’ve used it as a way to teach my family and friends about history, religion, and culture. The game mechanics themselves are easy to understand and in the end are fun. The only real problems I have with the game is that connecting with the server takes time and a lot of rebooting of the app and even after you manage to get into the game it becomes incredibly difficult to keep it from crashing. Fix those things and add a few more characters you can posses and the game could become a massive hit. I myself would like to see characters from my own Mormon religion. Although hard to find a true source of information on the Mormon culture online you can simply go to the lds website and all the information is there. Besides that I have seen no characters from African culture or any characters from more recent history. People from world war 1 or 2 could be made into servants. While this is a game, I use it as a source for teaching and learning and even encouragement and more than anything I want to learn more about every culture I can find and the fate series is a great way to encourage me to do so. Thank you for such amazing manga, anime, and games that encourages my love for learning beyond anything else. 😊.Version: 1.9.0
Overall, good (but with some issues)As other people have said, the gameplay and character balancing in this game is/are done really well. Hence, I think people who accuse it of forcing players into a progression-based paywall are simply not strategizing enough to compensate for the lower stats of their servants. If you watch a few guides, and have a bit of skill, it’s quite possible to clear all the content without needing even a single four or five-star.
However, while this aspect of the game’s design is commendable in isolation, I think a lot of gacha game fans are drawn to the character collection component in these games. This is where this game falls completely flat: if you want any four or five-star character and grind out the quartz try to summon for them, chances are you’ll just walk away with 4 or 5 craft essences, feeling like you wasted your time. A common practice among many popular gacha games nowadays is to give you at least one or two guaranteed high-tier characters, as a reward for summoning or playing enough (I.e. selectors in KOF Allstars, legendary shards in Raid, SP tickets in Dragon Ball legends). This game makes no such guarantees, meaning you can sink hours into it with virtually nothing to show for it.
TLDR; if you play Gacha games for character collection, avoid. As it is it’s not worth your time..Version: 1.44.1
Great but needs some fixes.I really love this game, especially as a huge fan of the fate series and all the spin-offs I was super excited when I found this. I love seeing all the characters I’ve come to know in the anime series and visual novels, and the art, music and card style battle system all work together very nicely and has gotten me addicted.
The one fault that really drives me absolutely nuts is if I don’t log in at the EXACT right time every day I don’t get my log in bonus. So while I’ve opened the game literally every day since I’ve downloaded it, I’ve only managed to get up to a 4 day streak because of the strict log in time in order to get the log in streak. This is really disheartening because it’s really one of the only way for the lower level new players to get a head start into summoning new heroes and getting materials.
I very rarely leave reviews but since I love this game so much I’d really love to see this fixed. Please fix this devs! I’d hate to grow bored simply because there is no way for me to get ahead or incentive to even open the game every day when there is no bonus in it for me to do so even if I am having fun when I do play..Version: 1.11.0
Stop complaining about the gacha ratesThere’s so many reviews on this game about how it’s bad because the gacha rates are terrible and it takes tons of money just to get a decent servant. First of all, 5* and 4* aren’t the only worthwhile servants in this game. Tons of the servants from the FRIEND POINT GACHA are easy to get and super good, like Hans(who’s a top tier caster despite being a 2* servant). While the 5* in the game are generally better when it comes to stats, stats aren’t everything in this game like most others. Most servants worth’s come from their skills and not their attack or HP stat. Each servant has a unique skill set and while some are better than others, it gives the low star characters a chance to shine through. If levels are bothering you so much then just use the grails that the game gives you for just going through the story. They permanently raise a servant’s level to make them even better. Also, to the guy who was getting NERO(one of the most unkillable characters in the game) killed during Okeanos while she was at max level, you’re not playing the game correctly. The story quests really don’t get all that tough until Camelot so you’re doing something wrong..Version: 1.21.0
My favorite gameI honestly began playing after I watched the anime and I was not disappointed, I not only get to interact with the characters, I can make them stronger and go on adventures! I honestly don’t see why some of you are complaining about it, after you play for a while, you will eventually get a good servant. There are events, it’s good to check in for those as they give you higher chances at getting a good servant. Also, you can always max out a servant even though they aren’t 4-5 stars. For example, Cu Chulain (I probably spelled his name wrong) he’s only a 3 and he outshines some of my 4 stars and 5 stars. I have a 5 star lancer and guess what, cu, which I almost maxed out, is stronger than her! Mind I tell you, she’s already at level 80-90. Plus, he lasts a lot in battle, but I guess this all depends on the player as well, if you don’t know how to use your servants then you’re going to be having a difficult time. I recommend saving up saint quarts in order to use them to revive your servants, you can revive over and over and defeat a boss. I usually save 60+ saint quarts that way, when there is an event, I still have some to summon..Version: 2.11.1
Great gameI have always had a problem where I would get hooked to a single game for a couple weeks, then eventually get bored and go to another game, this game is different, FGO has an amazing narrative story, the gameplay is flawless, I haven't run into a single bug since I first installed. The difficulty does curve and certain points in the game (when you play, you will find out what I'm talking about). Also, you don’t need five or even four stars in your party to beat the game, I beat the entire game with a 1 star Berserker, Paul Bunyan, in my party. Sure, it may be nice to try and get your saberface waifu 5 star but the fact that every character is completely unique makes it that much more fun. No two servants are exactly alike, that can be HP, ATK, skills or tons of other factors. I also forgot to mention their most powerful moves, their Noble Phantasms, each are completely unique to the character and are beautifully animated. So, if you want a fun, story driven game where you can have Billy the Kid, The Roman empress Nero Claudius and a robot dragon girl fight skeletons and dragons, I would say pop in and give this game a try, you wont regret it..Version: 1.36.1
Immersive StoryWhile not your typical Gacha game since the Stars don’t determine Servants values (which is super nice) the best thing about this game is the story and animation efforts into the battles. It’s very well done. It’s visual novel format is one of my favorites as the players decide what dialogue to choose from (it doesn’t matter which until later where you won’t be able to skip). You can choose between Gudako (Girl) or Gudao (Guy) but no matter what, your servants have an attraction to you- ESPECIALLY THE FEMALE CHARACTERS. It’s great. As a female player myself, this sets apart other games I’ve played since I can play as a girl but flirt with the other female characters too without having to be a male character. It’s GREAT.
Like any Gacha game though, obviously it’s a gamble to get your waifu/husbando, so hf with that. Gaining SQ takes time and effort and a whole lot of patience for a f2p. Which is fine! I’m having a lot of fun and it determines me to be ready for whatever comes when pulling and hope the RNG God bless you or else we’ll just have salty tears- on the bright side, if you roll 10, you’re guaranteed a 4 star, so it’s really not that bad..Version: 1.43.0
A Nice Little GameFGO on the surface looks like your typical Gacha game and in many ways it is but what makes it different was that practically any Servant 3 Star or more is pretty much just as good as any 5 Star unit if you use them correctly that is. This makes the game much less pay to win than other games which is a pretty great thing, the story is interesting enough to keep you wanting to see what happens next and the battles though repetitive are satisfying enough especially when everything goes exactly as planned. The thing that attracted me to the game was the historical part of it, I wanted to see just how many historical inaccuracies they packed in this thing and it’s still one of the reasons I stick around cause it’s just fun for me to just review a character that’s nothing like their real world counterpart. The only reason I give it a 4 star rating is because the game is still dominated by pay to win players who simply pay for Quartz and Material just to acquire and upgrade their favorite Servants thank god the devs didn’t put in a PVP mode otherwise this would be much worse an issue..Version: 2.2.1
Fate, what else?As expected, the Fate crew take the player in an adventure with the most famous characters in human history. The stronger people (5 star servants) take some patience and time to get, as this is a gacha game. Prepare to test your luck, because this game will treat some generously while others get nothing. A simple trip to your nearest statistics book would confirm that the cure to “bad luck” is to just keep trying. Keep in mind that as a gambling system is in place, you always face addiction and its consequences. However, if you are present for the events, you’ll find that the game is actually quite rewarding. Events are the most fun yet easy way to earn the game’s rare materials. If you play this game only once a week, on the other hand, you’ll have a terrible, unrewarding experience. A lot of actions (leveling up, evolving, beating events) require grinding. If patience isn’t your strong point, you probably wouldn’t find enjoyment in this title. Also, as others have noted, the player can still progress through the challenges with weaker characters, just expect a more strategic approach..Version: 1.9.0
It gets a lot right, but a few key things wrongWhile FGO has an extremely balanced meta that allows you to make a viable team around any character on the roster - even the 1 and 2 star characters can be powerhouses. So after playing for a few months, you WILL have everything you need to handle anything that the game can throw at you. Welfare characters are extremely powerful for free gacha game characters. And the story and gameplay are very engaging.
Unfortunately the terrible gacha rates (1% for a 5 star servant), awful implementation of replaying past events (not all events are eligible and you need to pull and sell 4 and 5 star characters to get the items to unlock them), and the worst pity system I’ve ever seen (you have to pull 10 extra copies of 5 star characters you’ve already pulled 5 copies of to choose a 5 star of your choice) make FGO far from perfect.
Long story short is that the game has a (blessedly) few VERY bad points that are mostly balanced by the otherwise very well crafted game. If the devs fix the problems with the event and pity systems, I would give this game 5 stars..Version: 2.14.1
EnjoyableI've been playing the English release since it came out, and as a rather large fan of the Nasuverse, I was very excited. I'm quite happy with the game design, though, as many other have mentioned, the gacha rates are a little imbalanced to say the least, and it's very fun to play, though once you finish what parts have been released in English so far, you come to a standstill.
The Saint Quartz become rather tedious to get, there isn't nearly as many exciting things happening (but I suppose that's to be expected since you've pretty much finished all that's been released in the given time period), and once you max out your characters, there isn't much of a motivation to keep playing.
Of course, now that the next Singularity is going to be released in English relatively soon, hopefully that will no longer be a concern and won't be for too long.
And, this isn't completely related, but the recent update the game informs me I should be able to install has yet to show up in the AppStore for me - I'm aware it says that this may happen, but I've been waiting for a bit longer than I expected so I'm becoming slightly concerned. (And unfortunately Achilles seems to have yet to make an appearance, but that's just me and my favoritism I suppose.)
The game itself has pretty much all I would expect of an RPG, and a bit more, so I definitely recommend it - but only if you're patient enough with the gacha to not get rather irritated by its stinginess..Version: 1.4.0
Please ReadThe game is fair. A lot of people are complaining that they don't get 5* because the rates are low, which is true to an extent. The game is designed that even 3*s even 1*s can be used to beat the game's content, it just takes a little more effort. They have said to max a 5* you need 4 copies of the same 5*, but that isn't even necessary. Having extra copies just increases their dmg of their ultimate atk by just a bit. It does not hinder you in any way for not having copies like being unable to evolve it. The rare materials needed for evolution is often given out during events to make the events worth grinding. The rates of rare materials dropping outside of events is to make the RARE materials...RARE. The rates are bad but that is what saving up your quartz are for. If you expect to get multiple 5* right off the bat then this game is definitely not for you. If you play the game expecting to get exactly what you want from the gacha you should prepare yourself to be disappointed. You should play to have fun..Version: 1.8.0
Fun first Gacha GameI had already seen some of the Fate anime before finding this game, and was unaware it was quite popular. I had tried Genshin a bit, but was overwhelmed by the currencies, materials, and general UI aspects. In contrast, FGO is comparatively straightforward. While you will need to eventually understand the different currencies and how you acquire them (Saint quartz, mana prisms, skill up materials and embers), they’re largely unlocked as you go. Quartz, the summoning item, is pretty easy to acquire in the early game, and there is a constant steady trickle once you’re caught up with the main plot. All the freely acquired servant are quite good, and some people make a point to only play with 3* or lower servants to show it’s possible.
Probably most important to note, North America is ~2yrs behind Japan’s content, which means that you can actually plan ahead who you want to summon, or who you want to strength for a big event. It’s actually quite helpful to know once you’ve gotten a decent roster..Version: 2.17.0
Fun Game, Can play for freeDisclaimer: I have spent 40 bucks on this game. There was an event a few weeks ago that gave you a guaranteed five star servant that I gave in to. So take this as you will.
Gameplay is fun, I like taking 30 minutes or so before and after work to grind out whatever event is going on (which there always is except this one period in September), and you can clear the content just fine with the 1-3 star servants and like a Hercules, especially with other high level supports.
Wouldn't recommend gambling on every banner, but saving and planning ahead until a cool servant you want comes out (we know the entire future because this game is further ahead in Japan). You still might not get it ( I didn't, tho I got a couple other five stars randomly), but like I said before, what really matters in clearing the game is just Team composition, and at this point in the game you can outlevel the content easy anyways. I would definitely give it a shot..Version: 1.8.0
It’s not about strength; it’s about Love.This is a great game. While it is difficult to roll the 5 stars, as many have suggested, it is completely possible to get through the games’ content with lower stars servants. There are a lot of great lower stars servants that are arguably more useful than certain 4 stars and 5 stars. What’s great about this game is that you don’t need all the newest strongest servants to progress, unlike in many games such as duel links or pad that you need the newest cards to beat the newest levels(gotta admit they help).
I don’t even login everyday and it is still fun for me. If you just want to complete the story mode, it would not be too difficult as long as you have a strong berserker.
At first, the gameplay bored me. However, as I continued playing and discovered all the different strategies, I understood how complex and fun this game can be.
This game is also a collecting game.
It really depends on what you want from a game.
For the enthusiasts, it’s about love. No matter how useful their favorite servants are, they’ll always use them. For the completion it’s, they want to collect everything and max out every servant. And for the strategists, they seek to build the strongest teams for each situation.
Ultimately, it’s about your love for your servants. Sometimes we just want to look at our favorites smash through the weak minions and observe their glory.
So, enjoy by spending tons of money, or if you can, enjoy for free!.Version: 1.14.0
Unique but HarshThis is not as bad as people may assume. Fgo plays out more like a single player jrpg with the best cast of playable characters for f2ps and whales. The weakest point of the game is indeed the gatcha but if you save intensely and level your low stars the game rewards you greatly. Each low star(outside of rare exceptions) is greatly useful and can carry low-high level teams in addition to low cost.
Four-five star characters are worth their weight, and can tremendously change the power of an account. Despite being out for years, the game does not powercreep high rarity servants that badly and upgrades such servants with often great skills.
The story is worth the grind because after the 4th section, the game picks up in difficulty and quality. Fate/go is harder than other mobile games but has great content and characters that manage to make up for some shortcomings.
Fate/go lacks much account safety, has a lack of replayable boss fights, story locked servants, and limited servants that do not have a consistent banner. And due to its nature, some event servants that can boost an account’s power are gone(Rider Kintoki, Shiki, Jeanne Alter Lily, Santa Alter, and Ishtar Rider). Sadly, compared to other games there should be a way to enable new players to catch up on previous events to claim copies of useful 4 star servants.
Overall the game is good, but needs to improve on post story content outside of farming and events..Version: 2.8.0
Great game for waifus/husbandos with good storiesSo obviously if you’re playing this game it’s due to the various characters in it, and I’m happy to report that you’re more than likely going to have your personal tastes met and given a colorful personality/backstory to boot! And 4*s are given essentially the same treatment as 5*s when it comes to art, design, story missions, etc. with the other rarities lagging not too far behind! Best of all MANY of the lower rarity units remain relevant to the meta, such as the case with 3* Julius Caesar or 2* Hans Christian Anderson who often usurp their 5* counterparts with their skills alone, never mind the difference in team costs.
I can also report that I’ve never ONCE felt pressured to buy ANY prisms in the game, and in fact I’m still f2p despite having 5*s Waver, Jeanne, Tamamo no Mae, Jack, Vlad, Arthur... I almost feel guilty about this given how much playtime and satisfaction I’ve gained from the game. It’s just really an A+++ effort all around..Version: 1.12.0
Love the gameI love this game. From the battle system, to the gacha, to the servants you can obtain. While 5* servants are extremely hard to get you can get lucky sometimes. My only real complaint with the game is that all of the events that were really good have passed. For instance,I missed the Fate/Accel/Fate/Zero event, and it is an event I would really like to get the servants I missed, All of them and the irisviel dress of heaven servant. I can guarantee you that you will be gaining plenty of profits if you choose to bring back the WHOLE event, not just the gacha the main missions too. The gacha had many great servants to get too so you will get profit in return I’m positive. And since everyone liked Fate/Zero they will be instrested to try the gacha. Some will try more than others, give up and then pay for it. Please bring back this event and bring it back with the time length it originally had. Thank you. Please do this as soon as possible. And please localize is for the English version..Version: 1.6.0
Great Story for Fate FansFate/GO has issues... a lot of them have been pointed out and exaggerated in other reviews though. Yes the rates are terrible, but players can clear all the contents of the game with enough investment to the lower rarity servants. Something that I find to be rather unique to the game as often times in these kinds of games rarity has a direct correlation to how good a unit is. I myself have been playing for 2 years, of which most of my first year was spent with 1 SSR. I never had any noticeable difficulty with the main story quests though.
The gameplay also has much to be desired and requires a lot of time to grind since this game lacks an auto play system. I’m not gonna say that it’s a mindless hack and slash though unlike other games on the market. It’s simple enough that anyone can pick up on it, but with just enough complexity that people need to build proper teams.
I’d also like to add I do play on the iPhone XR and while the game is laggy, it is in no way unplayable from my experience.
Now what is the main appeal of this game is the story. Though it takes a while to pick up, when it finally does get good. IT GETS GOOD. Enough that it even has an ongoing anime series and a set of movies coming out. It also goes deeper into the lore of Fate, which is nice for someone who joined the community after watching Zero and Ufotable’s UBW adaptation..Version: 1.36.0
The ideal game to grindWhen you first start this game you are automatically given the Mash and Cu (Caster) servants to start with. They are decent enough but are just a stepping stone to help you complete the Fuyuki City singularity.
In addition to the Holy Grail you get (just one of 10 in the whole game, usually for completing a singularity) after that quest, you get to choose one of several 4 star servants to further help you in the next 7 singularities/campaigns. Getting a 5 star is difficult but not necessary, as 2 Holy Grails can essentially turn a 4 star into a 5 star.
Leveling up servants is part of the fun, as is trying out different combinations of servants in your party. The more you level up, the more options you will have, and the more quests/daily activities you can complete for rewards. The events are where FGO is at its most time-consuming, but it’s worth it to get all the essentials you need to help max out your servants.
There is no real end game, because it will take months before you can max out a single servant - and that’s just one class. My goal is to get at least one 4/5 star for all 7 classes to stay competitive for the more extreme enemies.
It’s free to play but prepare your wallet if you are in this for the long haul, because if you don’t, you will be stuck for a long time and will eventually drop the game out of boredom..Version: 1.6.0
Really good game but one thingI’ve only been playing this game for a few months now, it’s got a great story and really well done art. My only problem is getting 4 and 5 star servants and essences, I personally think there should be a few more ways to obtain them/higher drop chance
1. The first is have a very low chance of being able to obtain them from friendship summon that way there at least an even smaller chance of getting a 4 or 5 star then having to obtain 30 quartz constantly.
2. Make the drop chance a little higher for 4 and 5 stars and 30 quartz summon to in my opinion make slightly more fair chance of getting a 4 or 5 star slightly more likely.
3. This is one that I think could be ok but it whatever make getting a 4 star guaranteed from 10 pulls on 30 quartz summons so that way it’s not only 3 stars and the guaranteed 4 star essence.
4. This I could I really see being fair, make it so that if u do all the side missions in a story line u can get a 4 star servant related to that story line.
5. Finally this another ehhhh thing lower the amount of quartz needed for 10 pull to maybe like 20 idk this is whatever one.
Anyways that’s just my opinion on making getting 4 and 5 stars a little more fair. But otherwise like I said I really like the game, I think it’s great and I hope to continue playing..Version: 1.22.0
Just like previous fates, excellent! Oh besides FAFate Grand Order, an excellent Mobile game from type-moon, under fate background, just like normal card games, you use your servants to defeat enemies and get higher ranking servants by the time. But one most unique and attractive part to me was the servants are all the characters from different culture and history, like King Arthur and Merlin from English literature, or Karna and Arjuna from India myth, from the oldest king Gilgamesh to Holmes, the various types of characters really let people to enjoy and help them to better understand the history because the background stories are all realistic.
Another important part of Fate Grand Order’s successful is because of the outstanding plot, it’s complexity and creative make me feel surprise and exciting for that.
One last thing, when do Dr. Roman come out as servant, I really miss him..Version: 1.25.0
Great GameLoving he game, especially hyped for J-alter in a few days. I can see why people say it’s horrible but it’s good, you’ve just got to have patience. And 5 stars don’t make the game... I’ve seen people solo the final boss of America with 1 maxed Cu and 2 Saint George’s which are 3 and 2 stars respectively plus you could get by on lower leveled servants. I’m going to use myself for an example. I’m completely f2p and have 2 five stars some four stars etc but I still use 3 star Medea cause she’s pretty good. Honestly only criticism I would give is make plz give a little more quarts on maintenance and after event stuff. Besides this is an amazing game. Oh and for those people who are like, oh this is stupid it’s super pay to win. Naw its really not. It’s more so pay to make sure you get a character. Before I forget even if you can’t get that waifu or husbando there are probably people out there with them as their support... just work with them....Version: 1.12.0
Great Game, Small Problems.Okay, so I’m starting this game as a HUGE fan of the Fate/ franchise, so of course I’m biased here. But even from the perspective of an outsider, this game is great. My friend and I got hooked on this game really quick and we love all the intricacies that come with the class system and various niches that different servants can fill.
Really the only bad thing I can say about this game is that you need at least 5 of the same servant to have them at their fullest potential. Not much of a problem for lower rarities, (1-3 stars) but for a 4 star servant it’s a pain. Don’t even get me started on a 5 star servant. It’s near impossible to get one in the first place. Especially for a free to play guy like me. If 4 stars had a higher drop chance I’d give the game a 5 star rating, but it’s just too much of a pain to get a 4 star servant up to NP level 5. All-in-all, the game is great and I have no major qualms with it..Version: 1.22.0
One of a KindFGO is the best gacha game I have ever played. It has story, waifus, husbandos, and my favorite part: fate! Now I know that many people complain that the gacha rates are trash, but lets be honest: it’s so satisfying when you finally get that rare CE or servant. Another thing, you don’t even need rare servants or CEs to win, all you need is an understanding of how the game works. I personally have a maxed account in JP because I love playing it, and my NA account is for challenges like beating part 1 story mode with only 1-2 star servants, or using only free servants with no gacha. My only complaint, is that the game is too easy. Servants like Castoria in JP at the time of writing is easily sweeping the meta, but even then that helps players, so I really shouldn’t be complaining. No matter how you shape it, love it or hate it, it is a one of a kind gacha game. Thank you for making this!.Version: 2.5.1
FGO you either hate it or you love it!3rd attempt at writing this review :/
FGO the f2p game that allows you to attempt to collect your waifus and such! Love the game it is fun don't need a 5 star to enjoy the game! Lots of freebies (although they could be more generous I mean they do make like $982 million from this game as far as I know :/ .....) Good luck to all those who play this game brings a lot of salt and anger to everyone unless you p2p/p2w (supporting the creators that is nice but I'm f2p xp unfortunately/fortunately).This game is free and it is a game so have fun but to all of you good luck! :)
**WARNING** This game brings you a lot of SALT & ANGER BEWAR AND BE WARNED! Overall have fun it is a game good luck to you all and quit if you deem it necessary or you aren't having fun anymore and you don't need to PAY TO WIN just play for fun and reroll if you experience salt or don't like ur servants and good luck to you all :)!.Version: 1.12.0
Good game but...Don’t get suckered in by the obvious money grab. Paying 25 usd for one ten pull is ridiculous, especially when the chance of getting a 5* is sitting around 1%. Let me repeat that. 1. %. Unless you’ve stolen your parents credit card it’s certainly not worth the money. I’m completely F2P and have been able to do just fine. You’ll get plenty of four stars to work with (from quartz draws and freebies during events that actually are good to use) and the occasional 5, but I’ve managed to clear the storyline using two and three star cards (cuz some of them are my favs) as well.
The game itself is fairly easy to understand. The game focuses on using solid team dynamics and playing the right cards at the right time to advance. There are loads of servants to choose from and build a team around. While there certainly are tiers of servants since there’s no pvp mode to worry about just go with the ones you enjoy.
The voices are all Japanese but you can get translations in the menu, and the cut scenes are all in English so you won’t miss any plot points. The plot btw lives up to the fate franchise name. I like it.
Other than the fact that quartz is too expensive to even consider buying and 5* draws boil down to extreme luck, it’s an overall enjoyable game that I highly recommend.Version: 1.11.0
Pay to win?Unlike what people have been saying, this game is not pay to win. I have dropped some money into it but all three times I rolled 5* servants (Rerolled during Gilgamesh banner), it’s been as free to play. Not to mention the game starts you out with at least one 4*, and more likely two if you got Saber Lily. If you were around in the beginning they even gave one for free. You can easily get Emiya or Heracles from the tutorial roll. These are very decent servants. If you want a waifu there’s also Martha. Not to mention there are many whales whom you can befriend and borrow their Waver.
Also there are many good 3* servants like Cu Chulainn and Ushiwakamaru. So yeah, as long as you’re not jealous of your whale friends with 4 5* servants you REALLY don’t need to pay. Not in the least. I have other problems with the game, like the LOOONG down time we’ve been having, but this game is not, as many imply, pay to win. Don’t blame the casino if you can’t afford to gamble, that’s all..Version: 1.4.0
Whiners EverywhereI’ve seen so many reviews whining about the drop rate of 5 star servants. 1.) I love this game. 2.) I’m f2p and have gotten 4 5 star servants from careful planning. It takes time. 3.) if you are a f2p player don’t complain about sq. Save and do research on who you want a chance at rolling for. We are 2 years behind the JP version and know when things will be released 2 years ahead of time. Again, save and plan. 4.) Even low star cards can be useful if you look up how to build good teams with them. Is it easier with 5 stars? Yes, but that doesn’t mean the game is impossible if you don’t have 5 stars and at least do a little research on team formation. This is coming from an f2p player. I’m really satisfied with this game and hope we get the sequel which is going to come out in Japan (or has it already come out?).Version: 1.12.0
Don’t Pay, Just PlayLove the Fate franchise and have enjoyed this game as much as any other thing Fate related, but one thing bothers me to my core that I can’t give this game a 5 star rating. Most games like this one always feel like pay to win or pay to get the next new characters released. This game in particular though is not worth paying for, the drop rate feels so one sided that all you’re going to end up with is a surplus of craft essence cards that are supposed to help boost your team. Your top tier character card pulls are so few and far between it’s criminal. That being said the game itself is fun, it’s involved and it can be enjoyable as long as you don’t get too hopeful about getting all those great 5 star attackers. Enjoy the game and play for fun, but don’t waste your money while the developers drop rate is so low it’s criminal. Wish I could give it 5 star review, morally can’t with how rigged the summon pulls are..Version: 2.6.0
My First Gacha GameFate/Grand Order introduces me to gacha type of games. At first it took me awhile to understand what gacha meant and then it took me awhile to get used to the functionalities of the game. I knew about the Japanese version but since I don’t read Japanese I waited for the NA release. I have been playing since Launch Day (Day 1) and it took me about 5 months to pull my first 5* servant. I was able to complete the singularities and events using bronze and silver servants. I only had like three gold servants but they weren’t full ascended because of lack of materials. I did spend some money trying to get my favorite servants, some with no luck, but when they actually appear, it’s like winning the lottery. Overall I think it’s a great way to pass the time, especially if you love RPGs. Just have to work with what you have..Version: 1.20.1
Only one issue.I’ve noticed that the histories behind some characters are inaccurate. A good example is Charles-Henri Sanson. The game states that HE executed Queen Marie Antoinette. This is false. His son, Henri Sanson, the fifth in a line of six executioners, was the one who did, and Charles-Henri Sanson watched from the audience, as Henri Sanson did when Charles-Henri Sanson executed King Louis XVI. Other than that, his history checks out, such as medical practices, being the first to use the guillotine, influencing its invention, and disliking his occupation. I believe historical fallacies are good to bring to light, simply because the interactions between Marie Antoinette and Charles-Henri Sanson made little sense to me, as did his description in-game.
Thanks for tolerating my little rant here, it’s just that I’m really into history and Charles-Henri Sanson is one of my favorite historical figures, so it kinda set my off. Sorry!.Version: 1.22.0
One of the best games I’ve played.While some may say it’s pay to win. Or the gacha is trash, I have to say otherwise. While yes pulling a four to five star servant is very difficult XD. It does not matter, some of the best servants are in the 3 and lower range. Plus the game gives you free welfare servants in events that are really good. This past event we got a free alter ego which is very hard to come by. The only other alter egos are in special limited time events. So getting a free one was super beneficial. The game is still growing and gaining more and more of a fan base. For me it’s a great way to past time, the other great thing about this game is the story. I mean at some points it’s a real heart tug with some story lines. If you want a game that has a great story and memorable characters. Consider playing Fate/GO, it’s pretty awesome..Version: 1.36.0
Far Behind JapanThis app is exactly what you’d expect from a gatcha type game; daily login bonuses, an in game currency that can be purchased with actual money, and timed events. This brings me to my only complaint with the game. The English version is two years behind the Japanese one, so at the current rate, expect everything that Japan is getting now to arrive on US servers in two years assuming the servers aren’t shut down. If you don’t want to to wait that long, figure out a way to get the Japanese app. Unless you make accounts on different servers, you will be missing out on at least two years of content that is technically already out. My personal opinion is that whoever is in charge should decide to put the non-annual events (i.e not summer, Halloween, Christmas) up earlier and in relatively quick succession so eventually all servers will be caught up to each other like other gatcha apps..Version: 1.18.0
Brutal GachaUpdating, as recent updates appear to have fixed the crashing issues and added more content. The gacha is still brutal.
The battle system is serviceable (rock, paper, scissors is the main mechanic), though bogged down a bit by too much randomness. It can get a bit tedious, as the main way to strengthen your characters is with the horribly repetitive daily missions - where you fight waves of the exact same enemy (the "hands") over and over and over again.
Materials gathering has improved recently, with more varied and useful daily quests for each class.
The gacha (which is how you acquire characters to use for battle), though, is simply abusive. The drop rates for the most desirable characters are horribly low, and even most "good" drops are anything but. As an example, as I write this review, there's a "rate up" for a certain character in the gacha right now - which means that currently there is *still* have a less than 1% chance to get that character. Given that pulls cost up to three bucks each and that the game isn't currently generous with free pulls, well ... prepare to spend a lot of money if you want to get a certain character. The game does give you some freebies in events which can ease the pain, but you will have a lot more fun with the game if you don't care specifically who you get..Version: 1.5.0
I honestly can’t put it downYeah the gacha rates are pretty low and that is a bummer but the game can be played easily with low star servants. The game give you plenty of Saint Quartz by playing the story mode and free quests so you can get characters and Craft Essences easily. You won’t always get what you want and that’s a major bummer but it’s not anything to cry over. You don’t need to spend hundreds upon hundreds to get a decent 4 Star character like some people whine about. The game gives you a four star right off the bat to help you out. The gameplay is fun, I usually lose interest in app games quickly but it’s been several months since I played it at release and I rarely miss a day. It’s worth picking up and atleast trying it. I can’t wait for them to release more chapters :3.Version: 1.9.0
Not too badThis is game is getting better slowly since their producer is becoming better and smarter. NA serve will get servants model renew slowly and is getting great. The most important part is now NA serve is becoming the slowest serve in all 5 serves. This problem makes game boring as fk while we finished one event or a new story comes out..Version: 1.33.0
4 stars for now...just like my unitsI’ll change my rating when I finally get a five star...so many years man T^T.Version: 1.29.1
The best way to mass-produce saltGive up on the gacha. That’s all. Whatever pitiful scraps RNGesus will give you, hold them close to your heart.
However, once you’ve done that, the plot line will soothe all your worries away. Drown yourself in the fantastic storytelling, and instead start searching for lewds of your waifus/husbandos online. The game itself more than worth playing, as long as you don’t have high hopes for the gacha rate. Please give it a go. It’s the ride of a goddamn lifetime :)).Version: 1.44.1
FGO is one damn good gameThank you voice actors and especially artists for taking their time to create such a quality game.❤️❤️The dialogue is unique to each character. Gameplay is very interesting with alot of customization and for once enjoy the story mode which I never do in other games haha. Saber will always be best waifu 😤😤👌🏼👌🏼.Version: 1.21.0
Good game but….I just started playing this game for about a week now when my friend introduced me to this game. I enjoyed playing this game alot because it was very chill and relaxing to play, no need for many movements other than pressing. I also like this game alot because I am an anime fan and a fate series fan too. But although this game is enjoying to play there is one minor thing i did not like about it and hoped it can be changed. As of right now, there is no log in system for this game. What I mean by this is logging into your account using either an email or like facebook so you can continue playing your account. This makes it a bit difficult to try and play on different devices due to the fact that when you open the game it will make you start a new account right away if you do not have a save on that device yet. The only way you can play with your account on different device is to do the data transfer which takes a long time cause you have to create a password and write down the code the game gave to you. Although this sounds like a way to play on different device with your account, it is not a good solution because the moment you transfer your account to another device, the original device will not be able to access the account anymore as it will tell you that you have transferred it, and the game will ask you to start a new account again. The only to play on you original device with the same account is to do the tedious data transfer again. In my opinion I feel that having a log in system where you can access your account through use of email or facebook account will allow for much better accessing, as it can have some benefits. One of those benefits is you can use different devices easily without the data transfer method as all you have to do is log in and your account is ready. Second is if lets say you lost your phone or broke it and you got a brand new one; with data transfer it will still be impossible to get your old account because you need to access your old device and manually do data transfer, which is impossible if it is broken or gone. But with log in system, you can access your old account right away as long as you know your email/user and pass. I am hoping that the developers read this comment and give a thought about implementing the log in system..Version: 2.18.0

Good gameplay, even better charactersI love the turn-based aspect of it. I can shut my brain off for a bit or even be solely focused on winning. I love the variety of characters.
My only complaint is how hard it can be to save up Saint Quartz to get the chance to summon servants during limited events but I can live with that..Version: 2.10.0
Drop rateI wish the drop rate for this game was better, trying to get 4-5 star Heros seems impossible when all you get is craft essence instead, great game but getting hero’s who could take you farther in the story seems like you have to pay to use. Wish they would correct it or at least put craft Essence in a separate draw pool to limit the amount you get..Version: 2.3.0
This is how you do an anime rpg right.This Is How You Make A Game Based On A Legendary Anime/Visual Novel Series Right! Type Moon Gave Their “A Game” When Developing This.
This Is Paradigm For All Anime Based Games Moving Forward, Besides The Gacha System And Some Questionable Features It’s Perfect. Excellent Cast, A Well Written Storyline, Memorial Moments, And A Great Flat Out Inspirational Morale Of Never Giving Up In A World That Hates You.
All Other Anime Based RPGS Fall Short Because Of Their Inability To Replicate Or Imitate this, the Closest that comes to mind is megaman xdive and that’s also made by a developer that know’s it’s freaking fanbase.
This is a must have game for anyone whom likes anime, good story telling or just looking to kill some time...5/5 Stars.

Huge update!They brought us lostbelt two and pretty much everything jp has over to na (besides the servants, obviously)
They fixed almost every issue I had with the game. Only missing one... that hideous iPhone XR border. It still haunts me, but at least the game runs properly now and is far more entertaining thanks to all those early animation updates!!
Very happy with how they managed to bring the right elements of jp to na without rushing a ton of events and servant releases..Version: 2.4.0
Er gimme a SSRI gave a five star... but I changed my mind cause like wtf I still don’t have a SSR(I don’t pay) and now I m at lostbelt(the newest chapters) also they are planning to lower the rate of SSR.... WTF. I love this game so much but please give me something... a good SSR or even a SSR will do.Version: 2.2.2
FateI just went through the comment section and realized people who give one star are the ones who complain about drop rate. To be honest, if you look at other gotcha games, the drop rate of rare heroes is pretty much the same. Giving one star just because you are salty sounds just like Shinji, the kind of person who summons a rider in fate stay night and keeps complaining how weak she is while fails to realize what an incompetent I0S3R you are.
Hope you guys will only get rider in fgo. Amen..Version: 2.2.2

One of the Best Card GamesThis one actually tells a good story and doesn't force me to whale. 3 stars and 4 stars are fantastic units. Skadi love 100 percent..Version: 2.1.2
ExcellentAbsolute banger of a game that grows on you and doesn’t need you to break bank because it’s not p2w. There is no competition of any kind so you never fall behind by not rolling for “meta”. Paid banners only appear twice a year and aren’t very good anyways so it’s highly f2p friendly and all the content is clearable without even your own gold servant, and everyone gets gold servants no matter what. If you think this game is greedy you need to re-evaluate your knowledge of mobile gaming.
The only caveat is that there is no reliable safety net in the gacha. Other than that you can save all of your currency for characters you love, the only bad ratings are because of people being salty or too impulsive and wasting their money and crystals..Version: 2.1.0
DW thoGentlemen. Operation: Skadi Farm is a resounding success. DW is now exactly where we need them to be so we can move forward with our little... "surprise". However, before we begin our next phase, I would like to take some time to address a rumour floating around the Playerbase.
Some of you have come to believe that DW likes Maintenance.
I wish to dash these rumours.
DW does not like Maintenance.
DW LOVES Maintenance.
Through their life, DW has discovered so many forms of Maintenance. You get up in the morning, you make a 10 roll for your Waifu, and DW closes the server right as you see the Rainbows. Timed Mainetenece.
You make it to work, and you find out that you only got 1 SQ for the 3 hour Maintenance. And you just so happened to use all your SQ on wasted rolls. Underpriced Maintenance.
But then, you find out that the only ones being given SQ is the ones who spend money on FGO. Whale Maintenance.
Then, you try to post about it on your Facebook, but then Facebook goes down as well and you miss the FGO campaign. Social Media Maintenance.
You finally get home, and you find your wife has gone missing because you spent all your money on a Gacha game. Social Maintenance.
(chuckle) What I am telling you, my Weeb army of 10 million losers, is that DW is a purveyor of Maintenance. And with your help over the years, they now stand at the precipice of their true goal.
You see, DW wants a long maintenance. No short maintenances, no average maintenances, no useful maintenances, no content maintenances... Und certainly, no 23 Hour Maintenances! (Blueballed at the moment of their triumph.)
What they want is a Maintenance that only we can allow. A Long Maintenance! A Streak Breaking Maintenance! The sequel you've all been waiting for! THEY! WANT! TWENTY! FOUR! HOUR!! MAINTENANCE!!!.Version: 2.1.0
Rates are trashHave redownloaded the game three times now trying to get 5 star okita and it’s literally impossible. By the time I would get her (have not gotten her yet) about half the main story quests would be finished and since I’m new I don’t know any other ways to get a ton of crystals fast. For a 0.7% drop it feels like 0.07. In total I’ve done 20+ 10x scouts and gotten nothing of value with only a single 4 star servant. Other than that the game is surprisingly fun and I enjoy the gameplay a lot more that I thought that I would at first. The art is also some of the best I’ve seen out of any gacha game and the unique skills are so awesome. The last thing that I want to credit about this game is that the animation is on a different level from anything else I’ve seen. When I first saw the EXCALIBUR np from og saber I was completely blown away at the insane rendering and design. Discovering all of the different artwork and trying out different noble phantasms has become my goal now for this game. So yeah gameplay is good, art is top tier, animation is pc levels of good, but the rates are so bad that I want to cry after every summon..Version: 1.43.0
