Toy Soldiers: Cold War review (XBLA)

Toy Soldiers: Cold War was developed by Signal Studios and published by Microsoft. It was released on August 17, 2011 as part of Summer of Arcade for 1200MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

About two years ago, Signal Studios released the original Toy Soldiers on Xbox Love Arcade and it has since been one of the top selling XBLA games to date. With that success, a sequel was inevitable. Now, two years later, Toy Soldiers: Cold War sets out to improve on a formula that was pretty damn good to begin with.

Toy Soldiers: Cold War is an action tower defense game where you play as an American army of toy soldiers who are trying to keep the Soviet forces from invading their toy box. Aside from basic tower defense elements, Toy Soldiers: Cold War also contains many user-controlled vehicles, special abilities and the option to manually use each tower/emplacement. These additions make Toy Soldiers: Cold War a hectic, action-packed game that allows gamers to play it however they please. For players of the original Toy Soldiers, this is no surprise. But if you’re a classic tower defense gamer, you better prepare for an incredible change of pace that adds up to countless hours of fun. Read More

Toy Soldiers: Cold War hands on preview

Every promotion has an end, every Summer of Arcade a final game in the lineup, and this year’s anchor is Toy Soldiers: Cold War. Toy Soldiers: Cold War is a sequel to Toy soldiers, a real time strategy game where players place down a variety of towers to defend a base from waves of enemy soldiers and armor. However, as a tower defense game, Toy Soldiers goes above and beyond the call of duty allowing players not only to place towers, but to use them in first-person. They also jump into land and air vehicles to really get a feel for the battlefield.

Toy Soldiers: Cold War brings with it tons of gameplay changes, improvements and expansions. Of course, the game has the typical machine guns, mortars and anti-air, but new to the game are anti-tank and makeshift weapons.
