Nothing sells games as well as a good promotion. Following the success of the Summer of Arcade '09 (and the previous Summer of Arcade), Microsoft introduces a new promotion that does not contain the reference to summer. Wednesday kicks off the Xbox Live Block Party promotion and the event shall be marked by the release of Toy Soldier.
Toy Soldier is an action/strategy title in which the player will control one toy army in an effort to eliminate the other army. The gameplay features a mix of first-person, third-person style of action combined with tower-defence elements and 50 different units that can be controlled and you have a formula that equals nothing but win. Toy Soldier will launch at 1200MS points.
Put your foot soldiers, snipers, cavalry, and fighter pilots to the test in Toy Soldiers. Poised to be a smash hit on Xbox LIVE® Arcade, Toy Soldiers is an action-packed strategy-based game in which players command antique WWI toy soldiers vying for control of the trench-filled battlefields of Europe. Deploy an exciting arsenal such as tanks, cavalry, biplanes, and flamethrowers in vintage WWI toy dioramas. Developed by Signal Studios exclusively for Xbox 360, Toy Soldiers allows you to take control of individual units or control the entire battlefield from a strategic view. Integrating multiple game genres and world-class visuals, Toy Soldiers is a unique and action-packed entertainment experience!
Toy battles: Experience epic action-packed battles with more than 50 unique units across two distinct armies, across five unique maps with their own special characteristics and multiplayer options.
Easy-to-pick-up controls: Soldiers can fight on their own, or be controlled from a third-person mode.
An arsenal of weapons: Fly planes, zeppelins, and even drive tanks to help your unit succeed in protecting its base.
Multiplayer: Split screen allows you to easily fight in head-to-head battles with friends over Xbox LIVE, or on the same console.
Miniaturized mayhem: Unique game visuals and post-effects capture the imagination and provide real world historical events in a playful toy-like miniature world.
I am quite excited about this title, but not completely sold on in. Good this there is a trial version.

I tried the demo, but didn't see the attraction personally. I mean it played alright but I found it somewhat confusing on what to do (or how to do it really). This game would probably be fun, most like arcade titles, but I feel will get stale very fast, like most arcade titles....
