That looks excellent. I'm not too surprised, seeing as how it's made by the designers of the original De Blob.

always thought this looks pretty good although just not sure how much depth it might have! dont think it has online does it? if it did it would be a good buy.

Looks quite good, although I am disappointed that this particular title lacks online multiplayer support. Looking forward to playing it early next year.

To me it looks alot like bowmaster, except without the bow, and perhaps a little more control of the armies.

this game could be very repetitive. i hope its good though. we need different genres to succeed on the wiiware.

I love RTS games.
Swords and Soldiers is at the top of my “most want” list for sure!
right next to Gradius Rebirth and Cave Story!

I almost completely forgot about this game, now I have 3 things on Wiiware wishlist, along with Gradius and Cave Story.

From quotes from Sun Tzu, Cicero, and Plato to a snow-zombie chieftain gleefully exclaiming "Ha! The dead fight for ME!!!" in three seconds?

Color me intrigued.

Now THIS is the kind of thing WiiWare needs more of (quality, I mean)! It looks much better than 90% of WiiWare to date (fun wise, not just visuals). I add it to Cave Story to have a list of TWO upcoming games I want!

It seems more slow-paced than I thought it would be, but this is still one of my most anticipated Wiiware games.

Strategy game, nice, and gasp!! Something other than a puzzle game too! Though I had heard of this earlier. It will be nice to be able download something different from the usual for a change.

I'm pretty sure I'm getting this one. Now if we can get more games that have some depth and story to them and not so many puzzlers, it'd be great.

I really hope it's not 1500 though.

Why are the adjectives like epic and legendary in parentheses? Seems like a bad sign.
