  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Put your foot soldiers, snipers, cavalry, and fighter pilots to the test in Toy Soldiers. Poised to be a smash hit on Xbox LIVEĀ® Arcade, Toy Soldiers is an action-packed strategy-based game in which players command antique WWI toy soldiers vying for control of the trench-filled battlefields of Europe. Deploy an exciting arsenal such as tanks, cavalry, biplanes, and flamethrowers in vintage WWI toy dioramas. Developed by Signal Studios exclusively for Xbox 360, Toy Soldiers allows you to take control of individual units or control the entire battlefield from a strategic view. Integrating multiple game genres and world-class visuals, Toy Soldiers is a unique and action-packed entertainment experience. [] Expand

  1. I always appreciate it when a game that touches on some cultural commentary, whether it's obvious or not. And given how entertaining it is to "play war" in the setting provided here (and believe me, it is) is proof that sometimes violence isn't as much about what is shown-in a game as much as anything else-but what isn't.
  2. This XBLA game signals a shift into something more hardcore video gamers could get behind: an action game that requires an itchy trigger finger to complement an itchy brain. With some exciting shooter action, solid strategy gameplay and a uniquely satisfying art style for the overall presentation, Toy Soldiers is proof of what XBLA was meant to do: bring us casual games in a hardcore games package.
  3. The breadth and depth of this title is outstanding. To have it offered as a 1200 point Xbox Live Arcade title is stellar.
  4. After Plants Vs Zombie, Toy Soldier is one of the most intriguing Tower Defence of this generation.
  5. 80
    Toy Soldiers is a unique game no matter what way it is sliced.
  6. Overall, Toy Soldiers is a fantastic effort at making war games more appealing to the masses.
  7. A wonderful Tower Defense concept in a disappointing package. There's a lot of strategic potential here, but the levels often end when you are getting the grip on things.

    Great TD gameplay and the ability to take charge by controlling any one of your units for bonus rewards make his a unique and thrilling experience. Top it off w/ unlockable avatar rewards (a gas mask!) and split screen/online multiplayer and you have one of the best uses for your 1200 MSP you can find. Expand

    Fantastic game, so much fun! I have been waiting for this since I saw the first trailer and it has more than lived up to what I had hoped. It's addictive, I haven't stopped playing since I got it. Expand

    Easy 10. Spanks most other arcade games hands down. The unique atmosphere and art direction really set the game apart for me. If you are tired of the artsy-fartsy indie flash game ports that seem to get all the attention...give toy soldiers a try instead! Expand

    This game is a blast for the short amount of time that it lasts. The single player campaign is fun with the introduction of new weapons/upgrades/vehicles coming steady. Gets repetitive in the last few missions. The graphics are amazing for an arcade game, being able to control a single unit is fun for the first few levels but near the end you have to just control a tank or plane and let your defense do everything if you want to win which was disappointing. Fun it you want a few hours of entertainment. I can't see myself playing through it again. Expand
