Review : [Swords & Soldiers] (2010)

Well made Side-Scrolling RTS.

You might play [Epic Wars] series & [Age of War] from Flash Game portal. We could call them as Side Scrolling RTS. [Swords & Soldiers] is one of them, but not frustrating as [Epic Wars]. Not-so-difficult but-so-enjoyable, 3 races (Viking / Aztec / China) have their own interesting unit & spells. Total 30 stages in Campaign mode, you could clear them within 6 hours. Some people could consider it as 'Too Short', but it's good for some boring weekend. Personally I enjoyed it very much today, so I recommend it very high. But beware for hunters of 'Steam Achievements'. Some of them are made without enough consideration, too extreme.

Where to buy : Steam

P.S. : Romino Games made 'THAT' [Blob] freeware version.

Preview : [Shank] (2010) <XBOX360>

Developer : Klei Entertainment <Publisher EA>
Release year : 2010
Price : 1200 MS points <XBOX360>, 14.99$ <PS3>

Cut Gun Saw ...


They were making games like this,


... and changed style like this.

Trailer was very good, so this game was hyped a lot. As you can see from the video, cut gun saw etc etc mercilessly. In Graphic Novel style world, player can do various kind of fatal actions. Player must use 8-button(!) to do such a nice actions, which could be too difficult, but not so hard until demo ends. Published by EA Partners, get good push/advertisement. But not sure it has enough playtime for 14.99$, and that 8-button is so comfortable for later play.

Where to buy : Turn on the Console.
