    Swords and Soldiers (WiiWare, $10) - Brief Review. (B+)

    For a inexpensive, fun action game in a fun and silly package, look no further. In a game that can oddly be described as a 2D Side Scrolling Real Time Strategy Game - S&S packs in some fun for a low cost. With the three factions you get plenty of gameplay, plus challenge modes and achievements. If you have younguns, they may like the Versus modes, but for me it was a little too clickfesty - but I didn't play much with this mode. Here's the IGN review, check it out. I give it a solid B+.

TheThis is one of the best WiiWare games available and one of the best console RTS games ever created. It is simple, yet hard to master. The design is terrfic and offers up a lot of strategy and depth even though it is only 2-D. The 3 factions are very different but also very balanced. The controls are perfect on the Wii system. The graphics are fresh and creative. If you love strategy games, you'll love this game. It is just a fun game that you can pick up and play at any time. Full Review »

It is very simple yet still very challenging at times and the colorful, cartoon like graphics add a lot to the fun as well in one of the best games WiiWare has to offer. Full Review »
