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.

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.

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.

From what i've been playing this game is really fun, It is also quite challanging when you get to later levels. You can choose between 4 races, each having their own special units. There is online matchmakikng, however i have not tried that yet. Overall this game is a fun experiance. Plus if you have Awesomenauts, you get a really nice Voltar skin based of the Aztec race.

I recommend this game, 8/10
