Cloud Raiders is a game of daydreams, as it takes place in the same place: the clouds. The game play is smooth, and engaging. The crisp, cohesive graphics, and a large player base keep the interest high, and insure that many hours will be put into building up a crew. Players are more often than not left with the satisfaction of being victorious in combat, and even if on the losing end of a certain skirmish, the devastation of losing a real life fight, or losing a tangible chest of gold, is far diminished, and far less bloody.
The biggest issue with Cloud Raiders is slow game play towards the later levels. While the game is free to play, there is no denying the growing incentive to buy in-game currency of gems with real life money. While Cloud Raiders may give you more tools to use, but also more time to wait.
Finally, way too much is put into building a crew to be content with starting over. While it can be fun to try new things, to go from having the best troops at your disposal to the most basic is a little bit jarring, leaving replay value in the middle of the score range.
