    Sword & Soldiers might be shackled to side-scrolling RTS convention, but it's smart and vibrant where it counts.

    In many respects, Sword and Soldiers is an excellent game. You can criticise its blatant lack of originality and repetitive nature, but that doesn't stop it being a great deal of fun, while its wacky world will seduce many.

    Swords and Soldiers could just be the next best castle defense game on the App Store. But the gameplay balancing really needs some tweaking as does some of the difficulty.

    Ultimately it's about dispatching units as fast as you can and a mass of units pretty much always results in a win. I have to say that the AI is good and makes the battles fairly even and makes a win possible.

    Swords and Soldiers doesn't take itself too seriously and makes for a perfect introduction for RTS first timers and a great casual experience for more veteran players.

    Sword and Soldiers is a great example of what a casual strategy game can do. It's deep enough for core gamers to enjoy, yet is simple enough that casual gamers can get in to it, while appreciating its deeper elements.

    Despite its overall age, Swords & Soldiers is still a solid real-time strategy title that gets the balance of unique races and tactical challenge just right.

    Replay value is pretty good, as you have multiple campaigns, multiple challenges, and a nice Skirmish mode to enjoy, in addition to multiplayer for iPad owners.

    Even if real-time strategy games sound a little stuffier or intellectual than what you might normally look for in a title, Swords and Soldiers is still fun and simple enough to warrant a look.
