For newcomers to the RTS genre, Cannon Brawl is a great introduction which really shows off the strengths of the genre. It really doesn’t take a lot of learning for a novice player to start making strategic decisions, and to understand basic concepts crucial to the genre such as efficiency, macromanagement and aggressive/defensive styles of play. While the strategic depth isn’t as much as other titles, the simplification results in Cannon Brawl being wickedly accessible and a blast to play for all ages.
I had a lot of fun writing my Cannon Brawl review. I had heard that the game was very addictive and highly entertaining, but I never expected it would grab my attention so much. I’ll be going back to the game as I aim to someday have that Platinum trophy in my collection. This will be my “go-to” game to have some extra fun between reviews.
And most importantly for all you trophy hunters out there, this one includes a full trophy count with a Platinum trophy! You will need to play the game at least twice – once in normal mode and once in Nightmare mode – to have a chance. I’ve been at it for a long time both while writing my Cannon Brawl review and after that, so you definitely have a challenge ahead of you!
