It's light on features, but Swords and Soldiers II is successful at boiling an RTS down to its entertaining essentials.

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. I'm likely still going to be learning the ins and outs of each army months down the line, which is a really great thing.

'Swords and Soldiers 2' impresses with its lovingly-crafted character models and light-hearted humor, but its limited 2D plane gameplay may not be for everyone.
