    This 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. Expand

    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+.

  1. Swords & Soldiers will certainly make you laugh, but it’s also just as likely to give you a serious hand cramp from the many hours of your time it will commandeer.
  2. If Ronimo Games' first game on WiiWare has a con, it's its short duration. Campaigns are like that and can only entertain the player for a few hours. Fortunately, there is the multiplayer, giving a bit more durability to the game. Aside from that, Swords & Soldiers is a great way to obtain great amounts of quick fun on Wii.
  3. Ronimo Games has created a light hearted take on the RTS genre. Swords & Soldiers has enabled a gateway for people who don’t normally venture into the real time strategy genre, to be able to pick up their Wii remote and play.
