    I can easily recommend Tooth and Tail for anyone who enjoys the genre, even if you don't care for multiplayer. The story mode is robust and greatly enjoyable, but the multiplayer still has all the bells and whistles that veterans expect by now like replays and post-match graphs. I hope that a strong community forms around Tooth and Tail because it has rekindled my love of RTS games.

    Tooth and Tail is a masterful exercise in taking the RTS formula, streamlining it and creating an endlessly entertaining experience tailored in an incredibly beautiful and cute aesthetic package.

    RTS games were never dead, but we didn’t know that a game like Tooth and Tail could make us think that the genre could use some reviving.

    Those looking for a hot new strategy game should look no further than Tooth and Tail. Providing endless amounts of fun with fair and fast-paced action, Tooth and Tail fights tooth and nail for its place in the RTS pantheon. It proves that innovating on an old school genre is sometimes the best thing needed. This doesn’t mean other games have to follow this design from here on out, but it shows that things can be done differently while being immensely enjoyable.

    Tooth and Tail, also known as the Angry Russian Mouse Arcade RTS Partygame, is an innovation in perhaps the most stagnant (and one of my personal favorite) genres in gaming. It's an RTS you can play on a console, and it rewrites the RTS rulebook to force fast, ferocious partygame-style matches that still play like a strategy game. And if that weren't enough, it's beautiful and has a killer story to boot. No detail is left unpolished in this one; definitively one of the most unique and successful experiments in gaming this year, and just a good time, period.

    Its humour and quick mission times make it an interesting prospect in a genre filled with far-too-serious stories and long, drawn-out missions; but the constantly babysitting your units drags it back from being anything truly special.

    A fast-paced strategy without the complicated management requests your attention with good theme and the original view at a class struggle. Belligerent rats, pigs and other vermin haven´t been so funny and addictive for a long time.

Alongside an awesome art style and soundtrack, charm (some of these units are just wonderfully designed) and a pretty lengthy single player campaign, Tooth and Tail is the most refreshing game I have played in quite some time.

Procedurally generated maps in single player campaign can be a bit frustrating, but generally is more of a plus. Visuals and music are just great. Highly recommend. Expand

I've played all sorts of RTS games. Starcraft, Battle for Middle earth, Age of empires, Rise of nations, Dawn of war, Age of mythology, ect... This game is actually a little different because you control a "hero" that builds stuff and directs your armies but it is really simple to learn (only like 5 buttons total) but it is actually really complex and in depth. It's also fast paced, the games only last like 5-15 minutes usually. There is single player, online non-ranked, and online ranked. Expand

    First of all, i was so hyped about this game, because i find out PWatch games when the summer sale in Steam, I bought Monaco and play 79First of all, i was so hyped about this game, because i find out PWatch games when the summer sale in Steam, I bought Monaco and play 79 hours. I was love in that game, We're 4 friends and playing this game for so much time. I just want to see other PWatch games, and i saw they started to develop Tooth and Tail. Developement phase is taked 3,4 years, I waited 4 years with so hype. I pre-ordered game and i played 5 hours when the game releses, and i can say i'm dissapointed a little bit. The combat system is just making game terriable. They we're talking about a long good story but, its so bad. But otherways this game is awsome. If i wasnt that hyped my score will be 8 or 9 but 4 years isn't worth for waiting this game... Expand
