Players can also control a powerful chieftain that they can shape by selecting talents when they expand their settlement. These talents also offer new units or bonuses that can change the way players play. Resources are limited however and the player will need to step out of his base to gather precious resources required for more powerful units, or capture and hold shrines that slowly give them power points used to summon powerful abilities that can turn the tide of battle.

    Warparty is a classic RTS that does not stand out in any of its sections. Its campaign mode can be improved and despite containing a good variety of game modes, some of them can not really be enjoyed, such as its online mode.

    Warparty is decidedly hit and miss. If you want a quirky RTS game with plenty of classic overtones, while still having a quirky personality of its own, this is it (warts and all). Hopefully, the game can get patched to improve the rough spots and controls. As it stands at release, Warparty is frequently frustrating more often than it’s fun.

    As the first RTS on the Switch, WarParty is an brave attempt to emulate the glory days of a genre that has long moved on in terms of what it offers players. Admirable as the attempt might be, though, the game is so unrelentingly unpleasant to play, and so limited in scope, that I think I'll be sticking to the plethora of superb turn-based strategy titles that are also available on the console.

    While Warparty is a visually stunning attempt at bringing real-time strategy to the Nintendo Switch, it’s lacking in understandable controls and small maps that make the overall experience feel restrictive and monotonous.

    It's the first RTS on Switch and it does a good job to deliver the full experience.
    However it needs to improve the graphics and the controls. Motion Controls would make it almost as good to play as on pc and shadows/ depth of field and better textures would make it look a lot better without affecting the cpu. (Diablo also runs at 60fps with 100 enemies on screen ;) )
    Multiplayer should come soon.
    When the developer adds those features the game definitely deserves a 9/10 on Switch.
