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.

Sword & Soldiers 2 is a strong yet simplistic side-scrolling Real Time Strategy game with a genuinely funny set of characters and dialogue that runs throughout the game, also topped up by a genuinely strong and colourful aesthetic. The game is only really let down by the limited replay value and small online audience.

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.

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.

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.
