About this game
Developer: Two Tribes
Content Rating: Teen
Prepare for war on Swords and Soldiers’ side-scrolling battlefields. Build your forces, engage in a tug-of-war for gold and energy, and defeat your foes with a huge grin on your face! Pick from 4 totally different factions: the brutal Vikings, devious Aztecs, crafty Chinese, as well as Chief Meat’s army. Each faction has its own reason to go to battle and its own campaign to play, adding up to many hours of side-splitting action-strategy.

Swords and Soldiers live up to being a very funny RTS game. It also does a great job of keeping the game fresh. Players who have not played the game certainly should give this game a try. If you experienced it on the 3DS, do yourself a favor and give it another try. Swords and Soldiers was a very good experience and well worth your time.
We have multiple reviews of Swords & Soldiers, all positive, including Chuck Jose’s take on the WiiWare release in 2009 and Zach Miller’s equally charmed screed on the HD release on Wii U in 2014. I don’t have much more to add that Chuck and Zach haven’t already covered aside from I think Swords & Soldiers shows its age more. The spirit of it is wonderful, but if you want to check the series out, I’d more recommend you wait for the sequel to come out in March.
As surprise release games go, Swords & Soldiers’ age – and the sheer number of platforms it’s appeared on – might lead you to sleep on it. But despite having appeared on plenty of Nintendo consoles already, Two Tribes’ comical mix of resource management and real-time strategy is just as fun, silly and rewarding as it was back in 2009. Its looks are a little blurry in places, but the simplicity of its concept (and the short nature of its matches) make it a perfect fit for handheld play.
