CNET Editors' review

Mobage's Rage of Bahamut is one of the most popular Android apps available, after being one of the most anticipated. Why? It's cool, it's supereasy to play, and there's always something new. This free app lets you do battle with other players in real time. Millions around the world play Rage of Bahamut, with 3 million users outside of Japan, where users play the original version, Shingeki-no-Bahamut. The premise of RoB is simple: battling players draw power from the cards they collect in their lonely wanderings. We installed Rage of Bahamut on a smartphone running Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Although the app's developers say it hasn't been tested with the latest Android OS, it performed fine for us.

The first thing we noticed was this app's awesome graphics. Existing users can sign in with an RoB account, but we created a new player profile. We tapped the Start button, calling up a 14-page tutorial that describes how to play RoB, starting with joining a Realm. Most new users want to be Gods, and who can blame them? So that's RoB's first choice, though you can also be a Human or a Demon. After joining a Realm, we could download a set of free cards.

When we were ready, we tapped Set Off on a Quest. Playing let us evolve our cards and add more cards. Evolving cards increases their power and rarity by combining different elements, displaying pre-evolution and post-evolution versions of your card for an excellent visual indication of their increased power (plus it's cool). We won our first few battles, enabling us to level up and earning credits from the developer. Visiting My Page gave us access to all our cards, quests, and battles as well the Enhance and Evolve buttons.

The Android app is just the tip of the iceberg for Rage of Bahamut fans. The game has a Facebook page and a dedicated Wiki, for instance, and many forums offer cheats and tips. Help is available from the developer's Web site. And we won't bore you with our adventures since you probably have some of your own in mind by now!

    "A Very competitive game of strategy, strength & defense"

    April 17, 2014  |   By snceday01

    Version: Rage of Bahamut 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    This free game offers you free game play and gives free players items that you also have the ability to purchase, but they give them to you for free just for playing. The game play is great and members are awesome! I've been playing for over 2 years now and absolutely LOVE this game!!

    Cons

    Haven't received compensation for the last event yet and there were 2-3 days of errors so hopefully they send us all what they promised :)
    The Mobage staff always informs you hastely if any errors occur which ALL games have some bugs so it's understandable..

    Summary

    Download this game app for your smartphone and type in tbx51820 for a referral code to give you super high cards :) Send me a message once you're started and I'll help ... You're Welcome :)
    Thank You

    "Amazing artwork, very addicting. Referral: teu27594"

    November 8, 2012  |   By nico11111

    Version: Rage of Bahamut 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    Easy to start, hundreds of cards to collect from with brilliant artwork. Never ending questions to build your deck and become a top 'Rager'.
    Working with others to become the best order of all time

    Cons

    some of the cards cost money - especially the rare cards.
    Use this referral code (teu27594)** to get a free rare card and the chance to get two more after you finish the tutorial.

    **Make sure to enter the referral code after the tutorial as this will be your only opportunity

    Summary

    Great game! Enjoy evolving and discovering new cards on your quest to becoming the best! Use this referral code (teu27594) to help you along your way

    Pros

    "Amazingly Addictive! -Ref Code JKL63913-[Beginner Tips]"

    September 3, 2012  |   By rageplaya

    Version: Rage of Bahamut 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    Addicting * Hours of Fun * Artwork * Challenging * Community

    Cons

    Hacking * Cheating * Interface (the developer is currently working on these issues)

    Summary

    ***Use Referral Code JKL63913 After the Tutorial for 100,000 Rupies and Bonus Rare Card***

    Download Rage of Bahamut for Andorid and Apple phone!

    Highly addictive, FREE trading card game (TCG) that lets you battle REAL players in countless quests and adventures.

    ***Tips***

    - Use Referral Code JKL63913 After the Tutorial for Free Rupies and Bonus Rare Card
    - Don't trade your high rare cards until you have a good understanding of their value
    - Treasure high rare cards can't be evolved and are not worth very much. Don't get fooled into trading for a treasure high rare.
    - HP and CW are the game's true currency and should not be traded away or used in the beginning of the game until you understand the real value.
    - This seems like it goes without saying but buy low and sell high. This is the essence of the entire game.

    Just for fun, check out my You Tube video Rage of Bahamut Satisfaction.

    "Best Card game ever!"

    September 3, 2012  |   By pryorrb01

    Version: Rage of Bahamut 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    lots to do
    strategy, planning and luck involved
    can be played effectively for free
    involves community element
    beautiful art

    Cons

    The major con is the strength of said referral code. This code brings new players in, but also floods the economy with players creating dummy accounts to receive the benefits.

    Summary

    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.
    Use code: gma60657 after tutorial for bonus!

    August 31, 2012  |   By aguirre9999

    Version: Rage of Bahamut 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    beautiful artwork
    variety of activities to keep it interesting
    room to grow and develop
    encourages group cooperation

    Cons

    cluttered layout and not very efficient
    customer support is lacking

    Summary

    "Great app, but time consuming, Use ref code YXL97611"

    August 27, 2012  |   By redhaze6

    Version: Rage of Bahamut 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    Very fun, addictive game. Cool artwork. There's always something you can do to make your account better.

    Cons

    The creator of the game Cygames, are kind of scam artists. There are bugs that happen pretty frequently and they don't do a good job of reimbursing your account in fact they often don't. Can be expensive.

    Summary

    Rage of Bahamut is a great app and a fun game. It takes a lot of time and patience though.
    When/ if you start to play the game you will start by taking the tutorial, at the end of the tutorial you will fill out a referral code, mine is YXL97611, but all the letters are lowercase. When you enter a referral code you will get a special rare card and a ton of rupies, which is the in game currency.

    When you start the game you want to build up your stamina at first so you can get through some quests quickly. Till you get to about 100 stamina then you should start to focus on either the attack or defense, depending on how you're playing the game. After short while also, you should join an order, and you order, if it's strong enough, will you a 5% boost to all of your cards stats.

    If you have found this info to be helpful, it would be a great help to me if you used my referral code: YXL97611 where all the letters are lowercase. Thanks, have a great day.

    "Amazing artwork, very addicting. Referral: gro16748"

    August 22, 2012  |   By KirosXannon

    Version: Rage of Bahamut 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    -Amazing Artwork
    -Great time waster on the go
    -Fun collecting the cards
    -Don't have to pay any money

    Cons

    -Can be hard to get into if you make mistakes starting out.
    -Having to invite people like this for certain event rares.

    Summary

    Best on the go game IMO. I've always been a fan of trading card games though, so that might have something to do with it. If you use a referral code after the tutorial, both you and I will get a rare card + 50k rupees.

    Some beginner tips: put all your level up points into Stamina until you have like 50 or 60 stamina. Then you want to start putting them into Defense in order to protect yourself against other people's attacks.

    Farm quest 2-2 to get feeder cards, people buy sets of 9 of these for 1hp/3cw/150k. Other than that have fun with the game!

    Referral code is in the title :)

    "DON'T BE RIPPED OFF!! BOYCOTT CYGAMES"

    August 20, 2012  |   By MistressNoki

    Version: Rage of Bahamut 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    Rage of Bahamut is a very fun and addictive game. Love the opportunity to team up with orders for group events!

    Cons

    To be a competitive player it costs money. This is not the problem. The problem is that the game security is lacking and MANY PEOPLE ARE BEING HACKED! Cards are stolen and sold for real money. Cards that people have spent A LOT of money to aquire. Cygames refuses to reimburse players for their lack of security and prefer to blame it on weak passwords, when it has been proven that its not the case.

    Also, recent events they have held were extremely glitchy. This caused many groups not to be able to declare wars, which in turn resulted in lower than normal rankings for some. Cygames' has decited to redo this event. Why is this a terrible idea? The rewards values will go down, more people will purchase items to prepare making Cygames profit, instead of having Cygames compensate those effected properly and well. Their mistake should come from their pockets and not ours!!

    Summary
