Swords & Soldiers Review

  • Conclusion: It’s surprising how few real-time strategy games are currently available on Wii considering the control possibilities of both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, but perhaps developers will take note of Ronimo’s success on WiiWare. Swords & Soldiers definitely hits the mark, in spite of a few missions that overstay their welcome. There’s no online component, which is truly sad, since the gameplay is pitch perfect for quick, online “pwnage.

Swords and Soldiers Review

GameSpot
21 July 2009
  • Excerpt: The tottering old zen master units in the Chinese faction of Swords and 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 best-laid defenses. Swords and Soldiers is similarly surprising, and its cartoon look and offbeat humour suggest simple, uncomplicated fare.
  • Pros: Hectic and fun for veterans and RTS newbies, Great balance between the three factions, Simple, easy-to-grasp controls, Compelling two-player
  • Cons: Selecting units can become difficult in crowds, Bland environments

  • Excerpt: What would you be willing to wage war over? What is sacred enough that you would send battalions of warriors to meet their end? Your cherished barbecue? Your giant, competition-sized home grown pepper? Nothing too spiritual or philosophical, I hope? I mean sure, national security and the right to freedom is up there on the list, but every axe-wielding Viking knows that a nation is only as good as its barbecue.

  • Conclusion: All in all Ronimo Games did an excellent job with this title. They have successfully created a real time strategy game for the Wii console. In addition, although it is not in 3D like most new RTS, I do not care simply because it is beautiful and it works. The sound design and graphics mesh well. There is no lag or freezing up points during game play. Moreover, it is fun and not as serious as other RTS are.

  • Conclusion: Swords and Soldiers could have done with more factions, but for its asking price of 1,000 Wii points, its challenging single-player experience and fun multiplayer romp already present a good amount of value. It may not be as serious or ponderous as other RTS games out there, but don't let its appearance fool you--Swords and Soldiers is a great example of its genre, and its simple controls and abounding good humour are likely to engage even those who have never dipped...
  • Pros: Hectic and fun for veterans and RTS newbies, Great balance between the three factions, Simple, easy-to-grasp controls, Compelling two-player.
  • Cons: Selecting units can become difficult in crowds, Bland environments.

Swords & Soldiers (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
23 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Swords & Soldiers is a real-time strategy game (RTS), available exclusively via Nintendo’s WiiWare service for 1,000 Points ($10/£7) and developed by the small team at Ronimo Games. What’s unique about Swords & Soldiers as an RTS game is that it’s built to function perfectly both as a console RTS and as a downloadable game. Key to this success is the use of a side-scrolling 2D battlefield, where individual units are completely computer controlled.

Swords & Soldiers Wii Review

DarkZero
14 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Nintendo’s Wiiware service is a bit of a mix bag at the moment, it doesn’t always bring great hits, but from time to time the occasional fantastic game pops up that is worth getting attention. The latest title to shout about is Ronimo Games’ Swords & Soldiers. A real time strategy game that is out right now to buy on Wiiware for 1000 Nintendo points. Real time strategy games don’t always get the best of praises on a console.
