    Great game

    Started out kinda slow but if you chat with your fellow players the people are great. I joined a clan called DAT and they have explained how to play and helped me out a lot. Just ask lots of questions :)

    To get the feel for it, join a clan

    Play past level 6 (it takes less than 5 minutes) and then you can do a lot more than just missions. You will be able to debate other players, run for office, join a political party, chat with and interact with members of a clan of your choosing, explore different neighborhoods (St Louis has over 70 of them), buy businesses, hire family and friends to help you win elections, buy books to hone your debating skills, join a gym and hire a personal trainer so that you can complete missions more quickly, and a lot more!

    We have people in the game willing to be mentors to new players and a forum where anyone can ask questions and interact with the entire community.

    Give it a chance and I think you will like it. We have players from all over the world playing on their Android devices, iPhone/iPod/Ipads, and Blackberry Playbooks (and now, of course, on Nook Colors!).

    If you want a starting bonus, type in referral code XELLG when you are asked which party you wish to join. That will come to me on my Nook and I can give you direct advice on how to get started (you can message me in-game), and you will also get double the starting points.

    Best game ever!

    Some people believe this game is stupid and boring. But thats because they dont understand the concept of the game. The clicking is not important. The important thing is to make friends, communicate, and be social. Please use referral code 0vuw8 for any help.

    Really Addicting

    When you first join don't get confused by the description of the clans. So you know what you are getting into when you join I will compare each clan to a fictional character.

    Intell: Megamind; extremely intelligent but rather vain. The fact that their color is blue is an added bonus.

    Media Moguls: Juliet Butler; very capable but would rather just chill and have fun. Be careful though, she does bite.

    Arts: Doctor Who; incredibly smart but sometimes you think they might be going a little crazy

    Econ: Will Treaty; not much is expected from someone that used to be nothing but he's turning into a formidable foe.

    Faith and Good Works: Forest Gump; often underestimated but turns out to be the smartest of the bunch in a very simple way.

    Docs: The Mad Hatter; no one really knows what he's capable of but it would be scary to find out.

    Guns and Glory: Syndrome; fairly young and desperate to prove himself, but doesn't last long.

    Workers: Butler; incorporates all the good characteristics: strong, determined. loyal and when there's an objective in sight he thinks quickly and determines the best route to take.

    I'm a worker. Referal code MWJS1

    Very addicting game

    When prompted with the referral code or what party you wish to join at level 7, use
    QWWSJ
    You will become part of the intelligentsia party;
    we are the strongest, largest, and most influential party.

    Also, this game is quite entertaining. Slow to start, but picks up quickly.

    Fun texted based game.

    I enjoy the game. It is slow going at first. Although, It does becomes addictive. Joing a clan will help you move along in the game. The players are extremely friendly. I log on whenever I have a free moment.

    Amazing

    Some people may say its a boring game and that there is no point to it. But some of those people probably were clanless which made the game pretty boring. Well i have played this game for about 5 months now and the people you can meet on there are amazing. It gets addicting if you are into it. If you dont understand the game right away dont make that an excuse to not play it all you need to do is join a clan and the clan members usually help you out oor someone else will from the same party.

    Why so many haters?

    Uprising is a very fun game. If you join an active clan or party then you can have a lot more fun by chatting and making a team effort. All of the people who say that the game is boring and pointless obviously havent been exposed to an active group of people. Economic advisors is a very active party with plenty of active players tohelp you along. An easy way to join E.A. is by entering a referance code. This makes your presance known and leads to being boosted. My referance code is "4ZW4Q". Any newcomers will be warmly welcomed and boosted to achieve their full potential. Have fun on Uprising!

    Good game

    This is overall an excellent game; it is important to be online as much as you can though, because it is a social game and whatever you want to to takes time. (They want you to buy from them!) I joined the intellegestia party and the TBN clan and there was lots of help waiting.

    The best game ever!

    This game teaches you alot about politics, and it's really fun! I would join the economic advisors party if I were you, and when it asks you your name, it doesn't have to be yoir real name.

    Awesome

    I reccomend joining the doctors wothout frontiers party, they are a very nice and supportive group. Clan tco will help you because they are the training team. You dont have to join the doctors party tho, go and try out whichever you want! I reccomend this game for all ages and it is even better if you are a social type of person. I give this game 5 stars!
