Power Rangers Legacy Wars Game Review (June 2017)

Power Rangers Legacy Wars app game was released March 23, 2017, along with the movie and was number one download for a while. I have been playing the game since then and it never occurred to me to review this game. They have constantly updated this game and it is now at version 1.3.5 as released June 21st. 

There are Rangers and Villains from the show and movie, each character gets two types. You have to pick three, one is the Leader and two are assists. The Leader gets different attacks and the assists only one attack. There are three types: balanced (yellow), attack (red) and defense (blue). But the assists, if they are labeled as one type, maybe the attack isn't of that type. They can be defense, but have a balanced attack. You have to fill in the spots where your leader is weakest. It is like Paper-Rock-Scissors, Defense beats Balance, Balance beats Attack and Attack beats Defense.

There is also different levels to the characters. There is common warriors, then Rare, Epic and Legendary. Some that are on level one is like a higher level of a common. I forget the numbers. Stages are leagues. The thunder bolt on the top left corner and it goes up by points, you change leagues by how many points. Depending on the points you get a Morph Box and they unlock shards to get a warrior or a warrior themselves. You can buy power coins, zeo crystals and shards but I don't ever pay money. I hear even if you buy a Morph Box, chances are nill to get the Ranger they promise. Also, you can join an alliance, with 1,000 power coins you can make your own alliance. You get more shards and level up if you donate shards to others. 

The Pit
League #0, you can get common warriors like:
Leader - Movie Red
Assists - Movie Black, Movie Yellow, MMPR Red, MMPR Pink and Wild Force Black
For me, the Movie Rangers aren't that great, they have no weapons and they often lose. Movie Red has been good for me, but you have to get him to a higher level to get good. He is better at close combat but not far away. MMPR Red as an assist shoots from his Blade Blaster which is strong but easily dodged. 

Angel Grove (Movie)
League #1, you can get warriors like:
Leader - Movie Black, Movie Pink, Movie Blue (Epic), Zeo Pink, MMPR Blue, Wild force Black (rare)
Assist: Movie Pink, Super Megaforce Yellow (rare), MMPR Yellow, Movie Rita (Epic)
For me, Zeo Pink and Wild Force Black work great. Black's attacks only work if you are closeby. The weakness of Zeo Pink as a leader is that people can avoid her red ball attack. Movie Rita is great as an assist with her soul steal but I didn't get her until well into league 7.

Zedd's Throne Room
League #2, you can get warriors like:
Leader: Movie Yellow, Dino Charge Blue (Epic), Goldar (epic), Lord Zedd (added-rare)
Assist: MMPR Black, Samurai Red Lauren (rare), Xandred, Dino Charge Blue (rare)
Lord Zedd as a leader is great, he is better at close attacks but he can't stay close for too long. He does one far attack. Dino Charge Blue works good for others but for me not so well. Xandred is great as an assist, he blows people away as a defense. You have to get more orbs of Eltar to make his attack stronger. 

Dino Lab
League #3, you can get:
Leader - MMPR Pink (epic), Snide (Epic), Dino Charge Purple, Super Megaforce Yellow (Legendary), Trakeena (added-Rare)
Assist - Movie Red, MMPR Blue, Trakeena (added-Epic), Goldar (rare)
Dino Charge Purple and Super Megaforce Yellow are great as leader, super strong. Trakeena not so much as both Leader and Assist because her attacks take too long. Goldar as assist is great but he can easily be blocked if you are too far from your opponent. 

Shiba Grove
League Four, you can get:
Leader: MMPR Red, Red Samurai Lauren, Rita (Legendary), Xandred (rare)
Assist: Movie Blue (epic), Psycho Red (Legendary), Dino Charge Purple (rare), Zeo Pink
MMPR Red is great if you remain close to your opponent. I haven't gotten Rita yet but she beats me every time. Zeo Pink as an assist is great because no matter where you are, she will hit. I haven't got Psycho Red as assist yet, but he seems strong.

 Rooftops
League Five, you can get:
Leader: MMPR Black (rare), MMPR Yellow, Psycho Red (Legendary), Space Silver (added-epic) 
Assist: Snide, Robo Knight (Epic), Space Silver (rare)
I don't have Psycho Red as a leader yet but he beats me bad. MMPR Yellow is good as a leader, she's quick but her attack is like a laser and can be countered quickly but packs a punch. Silver is good as a leader and assist, with lethal attacks. As an assist, he blasts from far away but goes close up.

Harwood County
New stage added after the release of the game, along with Robo Knight and Lord Zedd. Trakeena was later added. 
League 6, you can get:
Leader: MMPR Green (rare) and Robo Knight (Epic)
Assist: MMPR Green (rare) and Lord Zedd (epic)
MMPR Green as a leader is great because he has an earthquake attack that is a balanced attack. MMPR Green as an assist will jump anywhere and attack the opponent, no matter where you are. 

Island Fortress
New stage added later, along with Mesogog and White Dino Thunder Ranger.
League 7, you can get:
Leader: Mesogog (epic), White Dino Thunder (Legendary)
Assist: Mesogog (Legendary), White Dino Thunder (epic) and Rito (rare)
White Dino Thunder does an attack attack as an assist but has to be close to the opponent. Rito does an defense attack which is great. I don't have Mesogog nor White as Leaders but they beat me everytime. 

Angel Grove Juice Bar
New stage added last month, along with MMPR White, Space Silver as leader and Rito Revolto. 2017 Alpha 5 was later added.
 Leader: White MMPR (epic)
Assist: White MMPR (epic)
White MMPR as an assist is a defender which is great. 

Review:
I like the game. It is addictive. People have complained. They would had rather had this game on console without the Attack-Defense-Balance gimmick with cards. And others don't like you have to pay for stuff. I haven't paid for anything. The thing I hate is that lately I have been losing so I have been pushed back by two leagues. I wished if you were in on league you stay in that league. There is also challenges they give you every so often to get Morph Boxes, some are to get new characters (like Zhane or Rito), some you need an Attacker, Defense or Balanced leader and others have themes (like villains, Movie characters or MMPR characters). I hope this goes on so they can add other Rangers from other seasons. 

IF you have Loot Crate, you can get this 2nd version of Green Ranger has been revealed, based on cosplayer's design.

Power Rangers Best buy Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Review



Lionsgate was gracious to give me and a few others (do not know how many and who exactly) the Best Buy Exclusive Blu-Ray/DVD practice. The set has a clear sleeve with the Rangers on it while the set has the burning Lightning bolt. When you open it, you see Zordon in the Command Center and when you open the whole thing you get the zords on a landscape. Six cards come with it, shiny ones. Five Rangers and Rita. 


The Blu-Ray menu is cool in that it takes the scene from where Zordon tells the Rangers they are Rnagers and it is them in the Command Center. It uses audio bytes from other spots. It is cool for the first time but if I do plan to see it over and over, to wait for the menu. The Blu-Ray menu has instrumental of the MMPRTM theme. The DVD menu is different, it is the first image we got from the suits and flashes of each teen. It has soundtrack music. For the review of the movie itself, check the link below. The Director's commentary (Director Dean Isrealite and writer John Gatin) is cool (I love hearing director's commentaries) with fan shoutouts and the deleted scenes are already out. As for the featurettes, I think I should just leave it for fans to check out and not mention much. People on Twitter already voiced comments. As a collector, I do want to get the Target exclusive too, maybe the Wal-Mart one, not sure yet.

Blu-Ray: Commentary, Deleted/Extended Scenes, the 2 hour and 20 minutes documentary (which you can see in chunks), trailers, outtakes
DVD: Commentary, Deleted/Extended Scenes, Trailers

Yamato Kazakiri cameos in last Power Rangers Dino Force Brave

The South Korean sequel to Kyoryuger (2013) known as Power Rangers Dino Force Brave (2017) has come to an end and at the end of the episode,  Yamato Kazakiri appears as his character Masaki/Zyuoh Eagle from Zyuohger (2016). He speaks Korean and introduces himself as Eagle Ranger of Power Rangers Animal Force, the name of the dub of Zyuohger that will air next in South Korea. Interesting marketing indeed. If you are wondering, Ninninger (2015) which aired before Zyuohger in Japan did indeed air in South Korea as Power Rangers Ninja Force. So basically South Korea has been following Sentai by the tee, unlike Power Rangers in the west.

Galactic Sentinels Issue 7

Issue 7 of Galactic Sentinels based on Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills.











Order of Orphiuchus

Inspired on an ancient legend of an old ally of Nimbar against the connection of galaxies, the Order want to destroy the Power Portals.

Rafa/Serpent
Color: Dark Green
Serpent is the leader of the Order of Orphiuchus. He wields the Cobra Staff. He is cunning, tough as nails and suspicious. 



Bullock/Basilisk

Color: Black
Basilisk is huge and the muscle. She barely speaks. Her weapon is the Brass Knuckles. 


Warrin/Wyrm

Color: Copper
The brains, he loves Serpent, will do anything for him. His weapon is the Dagger Lance. 





The original Galactic Sentinels, is my idea, not from the show. Aries is a ram, Lepus is a rabbit, Vulpecula is a fox and Cancer is a crab. The first Knightron is based on a Greek solider. In the show, other generations were mentioned. In my fan comic, the Sentinels started on Nimbar's home planet a hundred years ago.
