Top Critic Average
Splicing dino DNA with a very old school style of RTS, Warparty has plenty going for it conceptually, but it comes up short. Even if the gamepad controls weren't an obstacle to your success, the three races aren't balanced and it's all too easy to fall back on massed army tactics. A refreshing setting is not enough to drag this tired old school RTS out of the past.
A simple and accesible RTS that tries to copy some classics but doesn't achieves greatness.

Despite not feeling very unique, mechanically, Warparty nevertheless delivers a great experience with a large amount of content, awesome visual style, and a setting unlike any other RTS.
With plenty of modes, options, and three mildly customizable factions, Warparty offers RTS fans a lot of content to chew on. Much effort was obviously spent building this unique world and its intricate mechanics. While the lack of multiplayer is disappointing, Warparty will keep fans busy with its blistering difficulty and fast-paced strategy action.
Overall, this is a pretty good step into the RTS realm.
Warparty offers the right compromise between the immediacy of the first RTS games and the depth of the last representatives of the genre, putting every element in the right place and carrying out its task in an excellent way.

Warparty is a fine game, but fails to differentiate itself in gameplay
While Warparty is a visually stunning attempt at bringing real-time strategy to the Nintendo Switch, it's lacking in understandable controls and small maps that make the overall experience feel restrictive and monotonous.
Warparty attempts to honor the glory days of the classic RTS, but various technical and design issues make it a lackluster game.
I can potentially see fans of RTS games loving this and enjoying it for what it is, but hardcore RTS fans will think this is just a dated attempt to bring the genre to switch. It could have been so much better. It should have been so much better!
