A 2D sidescrolling RTS. It works and is funny to boot.

I got this from someone, as a trade. Totally worth it. I'm a indie lover and this is exactly what I love. It's simple, really cartoonish, and you don't get bored fast. The price I think is a little too big. Just wait for a 50-75% off and buy it.

Achievements are challenging, which is great. Not too easy, not too hard.

There aren't so many players who still play this game, but at a reasonably hour, you usually find a guy after a few minutes. They always beat the living ♥♥♥♥ out of me.

No cons.

9.7/10.

This game has such a colorful art and enjoyable GamePlay. Warm advice, if your planing on buying this game, grab it with a friend and enjoy the casual MP. Problem with the game is that its quite limited to structures and units which ends up not giving you a lot of space to experiment and explore. I will always have a soft spot for Swords and Soldiers but objectively its a 5.5/10

Swords & Soldiers is a neat casual game. The problem is it's so completely imbalanced it's ridiculous. Don't even try to play it online.
However, If you don't care about multiplayer, the single player should keep you entertained for a while, but it's best to keep your expectations low.

Mass sacrificed my slaves to fuel my power to summon giants to rip my foes to pieces.


Then raised my slaves into legions of the undead to feed on the enemy's slaves.

This bite-sized RTS is pretty fun. I do think the Chinese faction is a bit overpowered, though, but maybe I am just playing wrong.

RTS without the S. Overly simplistic.

I have spent extensive amounts of time (450+ hours) on the wiiware version of this game, so I will just say that this is worth every penny. From the multiplayer (now made better with online play) to the art (now in HD) and the incredibly fun gameplay (with DLC) this game is a blast. Extremely linear, but once you come to the conclusion that Axe Throwers simply are the best unit, you will understand this game. Anyhoo. Buy it.

You lump of molten love.
