    In the end, Warlords is a fun and challenging game that takes a classic and improves it for today's audience. New players can easily jump right in and start wrecking castles in no time. At just 10 bucks, you really can't go wrong. It's definitely not for every gamer out there, but fans of the original will feel right at home, even with the new features.

    More than just an HD remake, Warlords adds enough new things while keeping the core gameplay at its heart to make everything fresh and fun. It may not be a perfect game with the (thankfully occasional) framerate dips and a story mode that could honestly have been left out, but it's certainly an entertaining one, and a blast to play with others.

    Warlords is a surprisingly fresh take on the brick breaking genre, with a pleasantly charming visual style, and a lot of personality. It definitely has it's issues, but they almost never hinder the core gameplay experience.

    Warlords is the seed of a very fun game surrounded by the withered husk of a shell that does not let it reach its full potential.

    The Warlords remake falls short on both re-creating the old and delivering something exciting and new.
