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.

Five years on, Swords & Soldiers is still an excellent title. It's quite simple compared to most RTS games, but it has just enough depth to make it a highly entertaining experience, especially when it gets ported correctly as it has been in this case. It's a bit of a shame the few extra features it gained in past versions are gone, but at this price we really can't complain too much. Let's hope the sequel is just as good.

Swords & Soldiers is back to a Nintendo console with a fun and competent work that features a simple and entertaining gameplay, a sharp strategic component and a very alluring multiplayer mode. Where Swords and Soldiers falls short is on it lack of online capacities and when played with the Switch controller, it requires some time to get used to.

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.
