  • Awsome

  • Wow

    by JoeToon2.0

    Great game period!

  • Never played MMP games before

    by lilac3258

    Really enjoy this detailed war game based on the Tolkien stories. Lots of fun, good interaction and interesting challenges.

  • Awesome!!! A really great way to meet cool people from around the world!!!

    by Little Big Dawg

    I never thought I would love a game like this but I was wrong. I have gotten addicted to it and have net some really awesome people in this game. Also, Shadowfax is the best alliance on the game. Elrond39 is the best world to be apart of as well!!!! Enjoy!

  • Enjoyable

    by Holyxtoledo

    It's a fun game with a good community if you find the right clan, everyone is helpful and supportive. Game goes by slow which is nice when you're really busy! Sure you can spend, but it's not necessary, although, I would! It's worth trying it out if you're interested!

  • Hobbits

    by Angelz83

    I love the movies and enjoying playing the game also. Yaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy..

  • Great game

    by Lil' punkin

    Game is great! Fun to play and very easy to operate. Very interactive.

  • Altualizar

    by Ediel05

    Por que no ponen una actualisacion o por solo un tiempo limitado que se puedan bendar los objetos que ya no usas por mithril y asi poder comprar la 4 ciudad los que no los tengan y muchas cosas mas que necesitamos

  • Great strategy game.

    by Ewwwpop

    Only plroblem you have to sink the money in to be competitive

  • Bank button

    by Jimmy Jim Jim James

    I love this game, but one thing would be a nice addition. Many alliances delegate someone as a "bank" to which everyone sends extra rss to, so a nice feature would be a bank button or something in the march troops screen that you could set to certain coords.

  • Never spent a cent

    by Gregbig12

    I love this game - the strategy and alliance interaction have gotten me addicted to it. Contrary to what other reviewers have stated, you don't have to spend money to be powerful - I am top 150 in my world without spending anything. Would absolutely recommend this game to anyone!

  • Love it and it is Addictive!!!

    by Max_Latino69

    Starts off slow until you get into it, need to really get into it and it becomes addictively entertaining especially when your on a great Alliance!! I play for little or no cost!! It's all up to you!! Go for it yo!!! Would have 5 Stars but the bugs!!!

  • None

    by Didisididid

    Good game

  • The game can be fun

    by Ana Cisewski

    However, it heavily favors the big spenders. Also, it is glitchy. Food doesn't show up. There's a lot of fatal errors, and frequently doesn't allow you to unassign a hero from their task.

  • Stuck

    by FelixTheGirl

    I happen to love this game. They recently opened a new server and I created a new city. Well, I switched back to my other one to check it and when I went to check the new one, it was gone. The create button was lit up green. I thought maybe I accidentally picked a different one. So I hit the create button again. Now it is stuck in new city set up. It tells me there is a server error. I can't get to my other kingdoms.

  • Great Game!

    by Kevvykay

    I love this game! It is addictive. I only wish that they gave you more chances to get mithril without having to pay.

  • The best game I've played

    by Grangrump5901

    The Hobbit KoM is a great game I can play it for hours with out getting bored there are tons of great people on here and alliances r great to have you might get a little mad with tks (People who attack to kill off troops and go up in leader board) but the fun you'll have here is worth it

  • Love it

    by Localbarkeep

    A little too good, I can't put my phone Down!

  • Good game

    by sokrdude234

    This is a fun game to play. You don't have to spend money, but in order to be great you probably should.

  • Havin' Fun

    by RaceBou

    Not bad - some lag but fun

  • horrible customer support

    by Squeeze85

    horrible customer support & outrageous in game prices. kabam treats their audience with no respect

  • Kabam The Worst Customer Service

    by Epidenmic

    I play in server 104. There was an issue with a hacker. I contacted kabam and they told me I should refresh my game???? I've spent my time and money to have a developer not answer it help with my issues. They don't pay out the purposes prizes and their customer service us awful. If you want to literally throw 100s if not 1000s of dollars down the drain, then this is the game for you

  • HaHa

    by FedWay

    i can't believe people are dumb enough to actually spend real money in games like this. I guess the world is full of suckers!

  • Fun but too many glitches and bad support

    by Playing alone

    This game is for the casual player. There isn't enough of a story line or action for anything other than a quick login a couple times of the day. Between freezing, lost resources and mith with absolutely no customer support, don't bother.

  • Would not recommend this game if your broke.

    by GamerX214

    This game has it all. Bullying check. Spend tons of $$ to advance check. Customer service? Or should I say lack of customer service check. Untimely maintenance which makes the game worst than the beginning? Check check. You have been warn stay away from kabam greedy company. Wish I knew before blowing thousands upon thousands of $$. Dumb move on my part. :(

  • Good and bad

    by Puple sticks

    The game itself is fun but there are many issues with items disappearing, terrible customer service and a lack of support.

  • Support couldnt be worse!

    by Prinler

    The game is eh ok. Just like the rest of them out there. The startup was slow and confusing. If your not a smart computer / technology person stay away. Any question you ask in main chat will get flammed by the trolls. If you get past this point they make it very obvious they want your money in the form of mithril. It cost WAY more then it should and makes the people with the most real life money rule the whole game. You will never win any events because they spend $1000's, yes $1000's!!!!! to win a $10 item. I fell for it myself and purcahsed $20 worth of Mithril the items i purchased did not work. After email after email they beasicly said im a lier and the item worked when i clearly anyone above a 2nd grade math level could figure out. After 5 emails back and forth they told me they are closing the case! Just watch out, this company doesnt want anything but your money. They dont care how unbalanced the game gets with people spending so much REAL LIFE cash on it. RUN AWAY!

  • Horribly Disappointing

    by Scott Sadlocha

    If you are a Lotr fan, look elsewhere. This is just a generic city building game with some hobbit characters bolted on. It is a blatant money grab and a platform for griefers and farmers. There is nothing to prevent you from getting attacked 10 times in a row, so be prepared to build up hard earned resources for days only to see them taken away in seconds. Also seems like it is populated with teenagers who think they can be arrogant, vulgar, and harassing. Kabam does nothing to police this. I guess my first clue should have been when I logged in and I saw two characters named Lickalottapuss and BounceDatAzz in chat. That pretty much says it all. Still, I gave it a try, thinking I could keep to myself. No luck. Steer clear if you are a Tolkien fan.

  • Don't get this game

    by Wasted 3 months

    This game is a money sucker. Sure you can play and not spend anything but you will never finish upgrading or you will never have a high lvl hero to defend your city or attack anyone and just your butt kicked. I played for 3 months before I couldn't get any higher without spending money.

  • Not a game for newcomers

    by Prrometheus

    If newcomer don't waste you time. You will never win attacks and lose all defense troops and gold (needed to purchase things) in the process. All other resources can be protected. An effort in futility. No stars.

  • Disappointed :(

    by Migggles

    I adore this app, it's very fun and a great game to play when you need to kill time! Unfortunately, for several days now, every time I try to play the app it states that there is a "Fatal Error" and sends me back to the loading page. I try the app several times a day, and it has a 100% fatal error rate. This disappointing, as I've missed out on several daily Tokens, and have been unable to check in the daily calandra boxes, causing me to miss out on the end of the month chests. Please, I just want to be able to play this great game without it crashing every time I load it, and making me loss out on daily/monthly rewards :(

  • Good game bad support

    by Wretched_Me

    Great game. Addicting, but the support is a joke. If you need to contact kabam about one of their dozens of glitches, such as them losing all your personal account information to hackers, losing mith, losing your city, etc... Customer support never gets to it. Kabams forum online is basically all posts about players trying to get helped out with glitches & kabam ignoring them. Don't believe me? Go check

  • Give me my might back

    by Dsplitt

    This game was fun until they took away my might my troops were set to hide and guess that happens someone attacks me and it's all gone I would give 5 starts if they will give me my might back

  • Complete waste of time

    by Enviragirl

    I downloaded the game it was pretty enjoyable for the first seven days, then everyone and their brother waltzed in and stole every ounce of gold. They offer this vault that will protect rocks and grain, but somehow no one ever thought to put gold in it. They offer defenses for your city. Total waste if time and resources. I spent three days building a good solid defense, vanished in one minute.

  • TulkasFormenos13

    by Great white bat Guano

    It's a fun game and you meet some good people, there is bad language at times and it can get addicting, then you realize you've spent hundreds on it when you didn't expect to spend any, then it drops you like a terd in the toilet when you talk to support (who I've only gotten to respond to me twice) I've played a little over a year, was good and getting progressively worse. I've lost items I've paid real money for, with no luck of getting them's like I tell my friends on the game, only reason I'm here is for them, NOT THE GAME. Hobbit: KOM=greedy

  • Wonderfully addictive

    by Spinlady

    As a beginning gamer I'm lucky I found this one. It's fun and can be played for little cost and maximum involvement. After reading some other reviews, I would like to say that I disagree with some points. I have had 3 problems that I reported to Kabam and each was resolved in a timely manner. Sure, you can spend money and I do but not much. I am in a top 5 alliance and there are several top players who have never spent. Many of the complaints I see seem to be the result of not understanding the game. The people I have met from all over the world are amazing. Like anything, there could be improvement s, but overall I think the developers are doing a good job. Thanks.

  • Fun

    by Leader767

    Fun game. Careful on ur spending

  • Customer Service Stinks

    by Sdcjacjets

    Quit blaming all your billing issues on other companies when it's your stupid servers. You know why people have issues with Miths because they are too expensive and they disappear in the game! Stop supporting these low life scums and just let kabam rot in their own problems.

  • Remind

    by Uday12

    Reminds me of kingdoms of Camelot

  • No rules anymore.

    by Ex_kom_player

    All the top alliances win simply because they cheat. Kabam used to have rules. Now they are non-existent. Do not download!

  • Bullcrap.

    by ladyamrieta

    The game IS fun but you will have to spend to keep up. Kabam customer service is HORRIBLE and they won't do a thing for you unless you spend a ton of money. Wallet warriors get the faster responses. Kabam also doesn't care for the well being of their customers, a lot of bullying and harassment goes down in this game and they don't do a thing about it, unless you spend that is. Don't bother.

  • Lots of continuous fun!

    by Pastorchef

    This game is an amazing amount of strategic fun. My only strong advice is get into a good alliance. A good alliance is what really makes the game play at its best.

  • Portrait only

    by Dean Maged

    Portrait only

  • Great game

    by Fishscale

    Just wish it was not rigged for the top alliances to always stay at the top..

  • zero stars, does not care about players

    by Aomeszaa

    when I glitched and lost 1 million might in a reassign march, I contacted player support and its been three days they havent gotten back to me and my troops are still missing. Im farming fourth city deeds and i keep getting robbed because i have no defenders. I was at 90/100 and now I have to start over again. So rude and disrespectful, they just want your money with no shred of respect and integrity towards players. What a bad company.

  • A great killer of time

    by Kev of Larr

    Addictive Smirk

  • Addictive

    by Pig_Pen57

    If you get in a good alliance it's an addictive game . New friends to be made all around the world .

  • Thanks for your money here's a buggy game

    by CFwt

    If you want to be competitive in this game you will have to spend money. You will have to spend a lot of money. And just because you've spent a lot of money, don't expect the game run smoothly. You can plan on having to reset this app very often. Usually it will stop updating at a critical point and you will log back in to find your city looted. Scout function only works half of the time. Your city will freeze up and no matter how many times you force-restart it won't unfreeze. You will have to cancel all your troop training and lose half the resources that you spent to train. You can submit a report to kabam if you want. They will take 24 hours to send you a cookie-cutter response about how they are working on it and how hard it is to debug the game. Considering the fact that it costs $10 for every city beyond the first (or even to change your name) you would think they would be motivated enough to fix a simple mechanic that has been in the game since it launched. Also if you want to be on equal footing with others int this game you will need a hero that is lvl 215. The items to get your hero to this level will cost you about $60 per hero per city. Do yourself a favor and get a game that costs you $5-$10 up front. The focus for kabam obviously isn't to make a fun and balanced game. Their focus is to get you hooked and then gut you for every dollar they can. Again, you won't be buying yourself reliability for your money. So don't expect it.

  • It won't work

    by goron8

    This thing(I won't Evan call it a game because of this) it won't let me play it just says network error every single time I try to play or start I can't Evan play it

  • Better

    by Pipeyardken

    This game keeps getting better and better

  • Awesome!!!

    by UltimateBuddrick24

    This is awesome! I don't get why so many people hate it... You don't HAVE to spend money, this game is supposed to be fun, and it is!!! Stop hating, and get over it!!! It's an awesome game in every way!!! I hope to see more cool games like this...

  • It's cool

    by Nic12121

    Could be better

  • Great game

    by Invictus_x

    Everyone has the same chance to gain might fight and win treasure. And make some new friends.

  • Entertaining

    by Abset72

    Great game

  • Fun, casual possible

    by ShezuTsukai

    Fun game with nice LOTR flavor. Can be very casual or you can drop a hundred bucks a month as a credit card warrior. Your choice.

  • Love it

    by Milla131989

    Glitches all the time

  • Great Game

    by Jbell1774

    One of my favorite games to play. Would of gave in 5 stars if it wasn't so hard to advance without paying money.

  • Do not download !!!

    by jay_1994

    Dont waste your time with this game . Game was great but now to be a top alliance or player you need to spend a lot an they have tournaments of might every day so you can spend a lot of money so you get bad prizes kabam has turned into a money hungry game

  • Update won't let me play

    by Anna Palaganas

    Please fix this new update when i try to play or even open the app it crashes it's very disappointing!

  • Best game ever

    by Jimmie usa111

    Most addicting game I have ever played I normally don't like games but find myself play when I wake up till I fall to sleep

  • You'll be disappointed

    by Dismal Wreck

    Do not waste your time on this game. This is a game where you will, eventually, spend real money in it. But this game is so buggy and the customer service is so terrible that there is no guarantee that you will even receive things you paid for. If it does happen to you there is nothing you can do about it as support tickets are given auto responses and closed without further review. Don't risk your money or time, it's just another pay to win game with infuriating customer support. We've all already played plenty of those.

  • Amazing

    by Ryan61546

    This game is amazing and has nonstop fun

  • It's a great really fun game

    by Saruman's Sword

    It's just an all around fun game to play. Quite challenging to start but fun once it gets going.

  • This game

    by Spazz91

    Is very interesting

  • Fun

    by (Jimmy!)18

    The game is great but the one thing Is that it crashes a lot for me

  • This game can drain your bank account

    by Gunnytoo

    They have designed this game so that you have to spend serious money to play at the higher levels and belong to an Alliance. Because the alliances can kick you out if you don't participate in there campaigns, you can be left to your now devices to protect you from attack. You need an alliance to assist or you become the local target. Kabam also keeps messing with the game design and function and eliminates your capabilities unless you belong to an alliance and spend real money to play. Yes it is fun, but you get sucked in and you spend it even if you have not intended. This more like gambling than playing a role playing game.

  • Fun game

    by BigGuyOR

    I truly enjoy this game. Just started a month ago and am having a blast. The one feature I dislike most is the inability to determine what chat mode is default. I can't have just alliance chat at the bottom of game screen. I don't want to see the stupid chatter and hate messages that are constant. I want to be able to see only my alliance chat if that is what I so choose. Play on!

  • ...

    by $€u

    Been playing for awhile. Everything was great until this last update. Don't understand why the troop button was taken off, or why when sending troops you now can't see what your sending or the load they can carry. Would have given a 5 if not for the terrible update.

  • Hobbit

    by JJAR1

    A+ love this game only thing I would change is global chat have a hide button

  • Great

    by B22023

    Great game to pass the time

  • Beware. Do not spend money

    by Scam. Beware

    Customer service completely ignores you if you get ripped off on a purchase. It must be really prevalent because they do not even try to address it. I guess there is no fix because they just close the claim.

  • Much improved

    by Tarwraith

    I played Camelot of the north and they have done a great job improving their game

  • The Hobbit

    by cofdimmu

    Great game!

  • New to KoM

    by Joefrankiesdad

    Totally addictive. Like the new update! Great game!

  • Good

    by Jimbo999991432

    Very good game.

  • Can't win if you don't send A LOT of money!!!

    by @whocares

    The games fun for about a week when ur in your bbl.. As soon as the bubble pops you realize your just a victim for those who spend money.. So if you don't wanna spen a fortune don't play.. Oh and don't ever have a game problem..customer service is USELESS!!!!!!

  • Disappointed

    by Druidland

    Customer support is nonexistent. Game constantly needs to be forced restart. Tournaments guarantee wins for those that spend the most money. You will lose good players if you do not change soon.

  • Could be better...

    by Miratheplayer

    I enjoy a lot about the game but I hate the lack of story and I hate how vulnerable you are to the people who spend a lot of money on the game. I think it should be a lot more fair like have people who are only about your level able to fight you.

  • Great game

    by Pie is good12345678

    This is a great game and very fun with friends.

  • LOVE IT!!!

  • Troops don't always come back

    by Regretting I updated

    If I send an attack or reassign troops to new city they sometimes disappear! Not killed in battle or anything just poof and they are gone. Particularly annoying when they are t5. Prob a scam to get you to spend money.. Lost a lot of might due to bugs.. Bogus

  • POS

    by OliTokurKlozoff

    Only reason I continue to play this PISS POOR EXCUSE FOR A MONEY HUNGRY APP is because of the people I have met and befriended. Customer service is the worst I have seen of any company.

  • Awsome

    by Flyfishin


  • Train troops/ barracks

    by Logan Luedecke

    There's just a minor inconvenience. When you go to type in how many troops you want to train it doesn't show what you type. It's still great, but just want a small fix.

  • Escuchar

    by Godric09


  • Amazing

    by BluCord

    This game is amazing, I've been playing for over a year and don't plan on stopping soon. The new updates are nice but I would like to see a little more of something when it comes to attacking. Other than that great format and a brilliant game!!

  • Update

    by Hiufdhhsisi

    if you can't get on restart phone I had do that. Other than great game very addicting and get to interact with many people

  • Kabam what a failure!

    by Moto4us

    My 4th review from an advanced player...what a crap this Kabam no servers to cover peak traffic like last tom campaign and loosing rss almost everyday in transport...just a complete failure. I closed already one world and now I'm closing everything...I'm out of this crap!

  • Awesome game

    by Van Wicked

    Awesome game totally worth the download

  • Customer Service is horrible

    by Jeni1980

    Love the game but hope you have patients when things go missing cause all you'll ever get is a mail saying you'll get contacted within 24 hours but they NEVER write back unless you buy a lot of Mith from them.

  • What the Heck!

    by Mr.AMBacon

    Got the new update and now I can't open the game. Seriously annoyed.

  • Five star

    by Seanmanajsk

    Very addicting and fun to play. I love to meet new people and make friends while fighting up the rankings.

  • Awesome Game!

    by pleasantsurprise2001

    Can't get enough of it! Makes me feel like I live in the Middle Earth in hobbits times.

  • Bring back the train troops icon

    by mule trainer

    The moon runes are fun. The train troops icon needs to be put back at the bottom, because it is inconvenient to bring up the barracks and go to train troops.
