Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon
Top Critic Average
EXCELLENT - Swords & Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon, while not being an entirely new game, does come to the Nintendo Switch with trusted pedigree. Tailored for the platform, and utilizing its local co-op play means this game is countless hours of fun with friends. Solo players need not worry, as the Campaign, AI versus modes, and Online offer a highly compelling gameplay experience chalked full of strategy, great cartoon stylization, and humorous puns and writing around every corner.
Despite an obvious need to mix things up and curate a more vibrant online audience, Sword and Soldiers 2: Shwarmageddon has plenty that is good about it.
This is a very entertaining game, which mixes elements of real-time strategy with others taken directly from the Tower Defense and some touches of micromanagement of resources. The difficulty shown in certain levels can make more than one player go backwards, but if what we are looking for is a challenging game, we have a good alternative. The few new additions to the original Wii U may not be enough for those who have already bought it.

Competitive real-time strategy games don't get much better or more accessible than Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon.
Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon is a great 2D sidescrolling strategy game on PlayStation 4 that offers a single-player campaign of a decent length as well as local and online multiplayer that will keep you coming back for more. It improves on everything that Swords and Soldiers did and then some. Get it today!
From beginning to end, Ronimo Games delivered a highly entertaining gameplay experience that most can enjoy. While the single-player campaign could have been a bit more brief, there are many good times to be had. You will be in awe of the game's various mechanics and how it manages to keep you so thoroughly engaged.
This is a great take on a 2D real-time strategy game, it has a good sense of humour, and most importantly; it is a lot of fun. The single-player campaign is well written, but the multi-player is where the game truly shines.
Sword and soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon does a great job of pulling together all of the things that made the original great while adding in new elements.
The real-time strategy genre is one that doesn't have very much representation on the Switch eShop now, but Swords and Soldiers II shows how it can be done well on the platform. Deep, but not confusing gameplay, great multiplayer, plenty of challenge, and a silly premise make this one an easy recommendation for anybody that's looking for more of a thinking man's game for their Switch. If you want something that's a bit livelier and more hands-on than Wargroove, but still ultimately concerned with planning and executing sound strategies, this is the game for you.
An often gorgeous and frequently surprising take on the RTS genre, Swords and Solders 2 Shawarmageddon is a hugely enjoyable effort that both fans and non-fans of traditional strategy games will enjoy.
