If you're looking for a more conventional strategy title to add to your Switch library, World Conqueror X is perfect for you. I think the game works best in handheld mode, as it's not boasting the most visually appealing style. It was also nice to lay down after a long day and pick the game up for a couple of scenario missions before bed. Whether on the go or nestled up at home, World Conqueror X is a pretty enjoyable strategy game and it's easy to recommend at the low price of $10.

It's not out to break new ground, but with enjoyable strategy gameplay and an appealing board game aesthetic, World Conquerer X is certainly a welcome addition to the Switch's library.

World Conqueror X takes turn-based strategy to a whole new level with its many modes and variety of stages. Leaning a little bit about World War II is an added bonus.

8 / 10

World Conqueror X is a great strategy game on Nintendo Switch with a lot of content to offer to both newcomers and fans of the genre. Taking on Scenario Mode will be the best way to prepare yourself for going to war against the world in Conquest Mode, greatly extending the overall time you're going to spend playing this one. Even after I had finished writing this review, I kept coming back to the game every now and then, making some progress in my journey to rule the world. I hope you give this fun game a try soon!
