Swords & Soldiers Review

17 June 2011
  • Excerpt: The tottering old Zen master units in the Chinese faction of Swords & Soldiers look feeble, but they pack a mean punch. These decrepit, slow-moving characters can single-handedly take out the fiercest of opponents and with the right support can plough through the toughest of defenses. Swords & Soldiers is similarly surprising, and its cartoon look and offbeat humour suggest simple, uncomplicated fare.
  • Pros: Hectic and fun, Great balance between the three factions, Simple and sharp controls, Compelling two-player
  • Cons: Bland environments

Swords & Soldiers (PS3) - Review

2 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Almost a year and a half ago, I reviewed Swords & Soldiers , which was, at the time, exclusive to Nintendo’s WiiWare service. Swords & Soldiers has now been released on PSN, with a couple of notable additions. But is it enough to make up for the long wait, and has the core game stood the test of time? The gameplay is almost identical to that of the WiiWare original. Your units – controlled by the AI - automatically move along a generally linear 2D battlefield.

Swords & Soldiers

21 November 2013
  • Summary: Swords & Soldiers je velmi povedenou 2D strategií, která obsahuje neuvěřitelně chytlavou hratelnost, díky níž se od televize jen tak neodtrhnete. Pokud vám tak strategie něco říkají a chcete si je zkusit trošinku jinak, tak je Swords & Soldiers právě pro vás. V současnosti naleznete jen málo her na službě Playstation Network, do kterých by se vyplatilo investovat více.

Swords & Soldiers

13 December 2010
  • Summary: Swords & Soldiers is voor € 7,99 te downloaden van PSN en dat is een mooie prijs, vinden wij. De gameplay is fris, verrassend diepgaand en verslavend, en vooral in de originele modes naast de campagne zit genoeg uitdaging om je flink wat uurtjes bezig te houden. Fans van complexe RTS-games missen waarschijnlijk echter wel het één en ander. Erg jammer vinden we het gebrek aan online tegenstanders, omdat een online robbertje vechten een hoop lol kan opleveren.

Swords & Soldiers

7 December 2010
  • Summary: Il sottogenere dei "tower defense" fa capolino su PlayStation Store con un titolo simpatico, interessante e ricco di spessore
  • Pros: Trenta missioni man mano più impegnative, Gameplay semplice ma ricco di spessore, Ottimo multiplayer anche online
  • Cons: Bilanciamento fra le fazioni da verificare, Le missioni possono durare anche molto tempo, Controlli talvolta imprecisi
