  1. A strategy game that anyone can get into and enjoy, Swords & Soldiers is the best WiiWare game of the year so far.
  2. If you crave a unique RTS with the motion control experience, then you need to play Swords and Soldiers.
  3. Although not very deep and sometimes inclined to chaotic action, Swords and Soldiers is an original and ironical take on the RTS genre. A little short, but still one of the funniest strategic game ever released specifically on console.
  4. Players looking for a strategy game that hasn’t been done often need look no further than Swords & Soldiers.
  5. Far more than just a quirky and adept multiplayer romp, then, Swords & Soldiers has found a deeply satisfying sweet-spot where chaos and control are almost perfectly balanced, and the result is a game that towers above everything else WiiWare currently has to offer.
  6. Keep an eye on Ronimo Games. Without any notice they released an RTS game with a new and fresh perspective. This approach does have it disadvantages in the form of difficult camera positions, but in the end Swords & Soldiers is all about have a blast. With special thanks to the original gameplay, good graphics and great humour.
  7. One of the best looking WiiWare games is also one of the most accessible real-time strategies ever.

    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&Soldiers is great fun and probably one of the best RTS games you could play to introduce someone to the genre. 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. 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+.
