Toy Soldiers: Cold War wages war on the Xbox Live Arcade Today
Xbox Live Arcade Round Up (17/08/2011)
The Summer of Arcade goes out with a plastic-y bang with Toy Soldiers: Cold War, the sequel to last year's Toy Soldiers
– if you're a fan of strategy games, it's definitely one to check out, even if it is a bit on the pricey side. Don't forget if you're planning on getting the free Crimson Alliance arcade game
, you'll need to buy all five of the Summer of Arcade games to be eligible.
Toy Soldiers: Cold War
Price: 1200 Microsoft Points (about £10.20)
In Toy Soldiers: Cold War, you can command the Cold War arsenals of the USA or USSR armies – in their '80s action figure forms. Control base turrets, modern combat vehicles, fighter jets and attack helicopters as you blast your way through the destructible environments in an effort to protect your toy box from the onslaught of enemies. And if you don't think one of your units is doing a good enough job, you can hop in and control them directly – going Rambo with a single soldier or blowing up everything from the safety of your plane.
Approximate value of Microsoft points in pounds is based on buying the points direct from Microsoft through the Xbox dashboard - equivalent price in pounds will vary depending on where you bought your points.
