Early Access Review
Toy Soldiers, a very addictive Tower Defense Game that offers Endless hours of fun.
Toy Soldiers was Originally released for Xbox Live Arcade back in 2009, The game was mainly about Defending your "Toybox" from the upcoming waves of Soldiers, Vehicles, and Aircraft. The Game took place during World War I, Which had Great old classic music, as well as the old weapons and vehicles from that time. Every Turret has 3 Upgrades, which Obviously the First Upgrade is decent but not too good, the Second Upgrade is better and somewhat Powerful, and the Third Upgrade is the best and most powerful. If you got alot of Points, you would Earn Barrages, but I only think there was only one on the Original Toy Soldiers, which would Bomb pretty much the whole Map. You could also Place some Barb wire so its a bit difficult for enemies on foot to reach your Toybox. The game was silly, but at the same time, It wasnt too silly, Which was absolutley Perfect. You could Fly Airplanes, Drive Tanks, You could be a Sniper and snipe all of the Soldiers, you could Control the Turrets, and You could even control the Missles that you launched from Some Turrets.
The game was obviously a great success, So they made another Toy Soldiers, Toy Soldiers: Cold War. This Game was absolutley great as well, the Game was more Modern, It had more Modern Vehicles and Weapons. The Game had More Barrages, and Lots of more hecticness. But one thing that was very great about this Game, is that you can actually take part on the battle on Foot, as a Commando. The Commando can be very Destructive and very useful, and there isnt anything better than Hearing the Commando do his Insane screams as you Blow up everything in your path. The Game still had what the game was meant for, Its somewhat silly but serious gamestyle.
The Game also featured Survival and Minigames which is Very Interesting. You could also do Versus with a friend (Same for the Original Toy Soldiers), and you could finally Play the Campaign with your friend, which offers just lots of Fun.
Then, Signal Studios had one of the best Idea's, To port the original Toy Soldiers and Toy Soldiers: Cold War onto PC into one game: Toy Soldiers: Complete. Although its in Early Acess, They are Fixing it pretty much every month and are making sure this Port isnt one of those Crappy ports you find from the Consoles. You get Both of the Toy Soldier's, Plus you get all of the DLC from their Games, Plus you get Steam Cards, and New Exclusive Content that were never on the Xbox Live Arcade's Toy Soldiers. All of that for only $9.99, Which is a VERY good deal. Both of the Toy Soldier's used to be $14.99 each, and that wasnt even Including their DLC. Although there are Quite some bugs in this game, It is Very well worth $9.99, Do not have Second thoughts about getting this Game, it is Fun, Addicting, and well worth the hours spent.
I rate 10/10, Simply because I believe that Signal Studios did an Absolutley amazing Job on the Toy Soldier's Games, and with both of them Combined into one game, Just makes it even more Amazing.
