    Although Swords and Soldiers II has a limited appeal for those of you who like to only game solo, it's a fine strategy title, and a perfect mix of brevity and depth.

    Brilliant and funny in its concept, Swords & Soldiers II is a great 2D strategic game; we just couldn't understand the never-ending tutorial that made the major part of the campaign a guided binary.

    But part of what I love about any good RTS is figuring out ways to trump any given strategy. The Swords & Soldiers games have small tech trees, but that makes the choices all the more meaningful.

    Great but not perfect sequel of one of the most enjoyable RTS found on WiiWare (and other formats).

    This game offers the same addictive strategy gameplay as its predecessor, but this time the graphics are a lot better and there is a story instead of missions. However, it is a disappointment to discover Ronimo did not include an online multiplayer.

    Whilst the game is fun in short doses, the lack of online multiplayer could leave players wanting more than the title can provide.

    I was a fan of the first Swords & Soldiers’ fiery and rambunctious Viking hordes and their quest for grandeur and grilled meats, and I had high hopes for the sequel, but Swords & Soldier II wound up just being a dusty old lamp with no magic to speak of.

    It's about time we had a sequel! It does not disappoint. S&S 2 shakes up it's format to ensure fans of the original return feeling like theyIt's about time we had a sequel! It does not disappoint. S&S 2 shakes up it's format to ensure fans of the original return feeling like they know nothing and providing them with plenty of challenge.
    The visuals are extremely well crafted and the games retains its silly sense of humour in a way that adds charm to this brilliant e-shop title.
    If you like Tower defense games then you have to buy this game.
