    Though that simplicity can be an asset, in many ways it's the game's greatest weakness as well. The personality will carry you through the campaign, but repeating battles of attrition wear thin too quickly; Ronimo has some great ideas in this little package, even if the end result falls a little short of becoming an RTS classic.

    Though the campaign may only take a few hours to beat, there's plenty of content resting within the multiplayer component. Casual RTS fans will appreciate the no-nonsense gameplay, and Move control scheme (which is much more comfortable and efficient than a DS3), though there is also something here for the more hardcore fans of the genre.
  3. In a lot of ways, Swords & Soldiers is like any other satisfying RTS game... just bite-sized.

    Swords and Soldiers is a blast from beginning to end. It DOES feel a little contrived at times, with the formula not changing very much fromSwords and Soldiers is a blast from beginning to end. It DOES feel a little contrived at times, with the formula not changing very much from mission to mission (Get new power. Use it to beat this mission. Cue cutscene). However, the action doesn't ever really feel like it stagnates, and missions can be completed quickly allowing it to be digested in bite-sized chunks, also making it a great mobile choice. It's an interesting spin on the RTS genre, with the 2D perspective. Full Review »
