I just finished the game. 100%. Got all the achievements and I beat every level without taking any damage on Hard Mode to boot. Did that as a challenge to myself. So what do I think of this game?
The game took me exactly 30 hours to complete at 100% and finishing the Hard campaign without losing any life. I think it was worth the investment I put in. It was a great time waster and nothing tops nostalgia factor for kids like me who grew up in the 80s. Many toy soldiers have served me valiantly when I was a child and seeing them brought to virtual life was nuts. I think this game caters specifically to guys my age, 30s and up. The nostalgia factor alone was worth the buy.
The game is simple to play but difficult to master. The graphics were fun and detailed and allowed me to believe I was fighting in my own toy box. The units were varied enough to keep things interesting (I HATE cavalry units.) The music was super old school, very 1920s which was interesting, found myself singing along with some of them later on. The controls were tight but being proficient in the many different weapons had a steep learning curve, especially the planes and cannons. This game is not impossible. Some levels are insanely hard while some are ridiculously easy and not in order either; so don't give up. For my two cents, I think the game was a great buy and I can say honestly that I had a lot of fun.
Buy and play this game! Especially if you actually played with toy soldiers as a kid.
