this game got me off guard :D i was placing it into my cart awaiting a simple Tower defence game... it is AWESOME some vehicle controls are clunky but the overal idea of placing turrets and at times manning your favorites is AWESOME and actually the battles are EPIC. the first time your enemy charges your lines makes you forget these are only toy figures. the fight is visceral and the whole has a real good war feeling.

It's a pretty fun game. Kind of a tower defense game, but you can take over some of the units you place. I really like the theme and the fact that there's no blood. That way I can play it around my kids. It might not be better than sliced bread, but it's still a fun game. I'd give it an 8 out of 10. :D

Product: Toy Soldiers

Rating: 9.5/10

Recommended amount to pay: I would say this game is worth about $9.99 to $14.99

Personal thoughts of game:
Pro-Commanding individual Turrents that you place adds a whole new level of fun to the Tower Defence Genre
Con-Does not come with a online multiplayer feature like the xbox live version does

Why I recommend this: For fans of Tower Defence games, this is a must. The style of taking command over turrents is just such a fun and also stragetic way to battle through the levels of Toy Soldiers. Cutting through the little walking toy men with your machine gun and battling the boss Toys that trample through the map by firing your loud artillery is very entertaining. Also using the vehicles that are stationed on alot of maps such as the tank or biplane adds a whole new level of strategy. This game and its sequal are very enjoyable and I recommend checking them both out.

I'm going to say it. I Hate Tower Defense. However, I loved this game. It is a new spin on the tower down Tower defense. You have the ability to take control of your turrets leading to hours of fun by hitting groups of infantry with a massive howitzer shell. The match starts you with a few seconds to a minute to prepare then the whistle is blown and both sides infantry charge. You have the ability to take control of the default defense, a Sniper tower, which provides a great overview, and chances to pick off pesky stragglers. On top of that, you have the ability to control authentic tanks, each equipped with a main cannon and Nossles on the side that fire gas or flames, or control Fighter-Bombers to shoot bomb enemy planes, Barrage balloons or bomb enemy formations. You can even control authentic looking Bombers with forward and backward facing machine guns. The bomber is equipped with a massive amounts of bombs that replenish after around 5-10 seconds. Great for taking out columns of infantry...or enemy artillery positions. That's right. On some missions, the enemy will have tower defense just like you, making building yours or destroying there's a lot more difficult.

Now let's get to the boss. This game has some interesting bosses, that keep in the time period. Some are failed products, some are only concept some are straight out of the developers minds.

With 10 hours plus, and I still haven't beat the other campaigns, this game is always fun, whether replaying old levels on Elite, where turrets you control only fire to playing just for fun, this game will be hours of fun.

Highly recommended. Much fun to be had here with this little gem. A fantastic bargain for the current price.
Now all it needs is WWII and modern day DLC!

Wow, bought this for $1.99 on sale and its a blast! War Games with 1930s toy soldiers, the good steampunkish ones with artillery, trains, planes and more. You can select the unit you'd like to control the guns, purchase different types at certain strategic locations. Can even jump into an biplane and bomb the toy train spewing toy tanks onto the play battlefield from one its iron cars. Tons of silly toy fun and lots strategy!

I originally had this for my Xbox 360 as an arcade game, but that was YEARS ago. Toy Soldiers is a tower defense strategy based game revolving around WW1 based action figures fighting to the death to either destroy your base, or defend it. Your mission is to defend your base, or Toy Box from the enemy. Your Toy Box will take damage if an enemy troop reaches it, and if enough troops make it to your Toy Box, you loose the level. Along with numerous variants of troops (soldiers, tanks, planes, ect) you have a variety of turrets to deploy as well. From artillery to machine guns, to even gas, finding the perfect set is sometimes challenging(I Recommend using a healthy diet of Machine Guns and Mortars with a pinch of Artilery). For every enemy killed you gain money for upgrading turrets and repairing them. Your turrets will attack automatically, but you can control them to kill enemies while earning boosted money drops and damage. There are numerous maps to play through and a total of 3 campaigns to smash though, each having bosses and funny moments. For someone whose never heard about this fun and cool game, I HIGHLY recommend this game. 9/10

I remember playing this on Xbox and thought of the fun I had with it. I instantly threw money at my screen. Then it wouldn't work for my PC. Nevertheless, still a great game if you ever get a chance to play it.

I love tower defense games and this one is really unique! It definitely gets you right into the heart of the action by letting you get in the towers and shoot the enemies or even getting in an airplane and taking the enemy on from the sky! Great game!

This game is one of those Tower Defense games with a wonderful twist which allows you to actually man the very tower yourself. When you defend against waves, the waves looks pretty real like in war. This game does a good job of immersion in that aspect. So if you like: WW1 theme with good immersion, manning a tower yourself, tower defense genre, and challenge levels to go for? Then you will enjoy this game! +Recommended.

Just a short and quick review here. Got the game for next to nothing on sale. If you're familiar with old tabletop wargames using miniatures, the title pretty much tells it all: You get a set of toy soldiers and other units from WWI era. The tanks have a little key on the side and look vaguely like old tin toys. I have a great fondness for these things, but that's me. I openly own and admit my admiration for tabletop wargamers with meticulously well-painted miniatures. It's fine for what it's supposed to be, but don't expect actual tabletop warfare of that nature. This is more of a romantic homage without the bits that really appeal to adult fans of the hobby. Still, it's not awful, just not for everyone. You get more of a tower defense game with specific points where you can place specific units. You can climb in and take over a given unit to improve accuracy and excitement, or you can just allow matters to run their course. You probably really need to get in there and fight to win. Strategic aspect of this game is very low, at least on easy. I'm not interested in playing this on a higher difficulty because I really don't see it being anything more than what it is: Arcade action with toy soldiers and various era-specific units. If you have a romantic interest in this type of thing, maybe check it out for a dollar or two. I like it okay, but I won't be playing it a lot. I'd rather play actual tabletop miniature games than this to be honest.

Having originally played this game on the xbox, i was surprised to see the removal of multiplayer from the game... u know the bit that gave the game an ounce of replay value, i mean the camaign is good, but the multiplayer is what kept me playing in the original version.

A static tower defence game that isn't so static. A nice little indie set in WWI, pitting waves of increasingly irate soldiers against your emplacements that stoically defend your base. Oh, and if you want to win, you're going to have to aim some of those machine guns, burn infantry to a crisp in a tank and jump in a plane every so often to bomb the hell out of them. You won't win by top down strategy alone!

Really good mix of tower defense, rts, and third person gameplay. Also an actual game that involves a semblance of WW1, so that is a plus.

Great for when you dont have the time to dig into a game deep and your tired of looking into the screen saver, very nice to play when your doing other things and only have a few minutes to kill. Maps playout very fast the battle fields are tiny I like it
