Heroes and Castles 2 iPad Review
- Battles between hundreds of soldiers look great
- Ability to take over different areas adds extra layer of strategy
- Difficult to juggle stategy and hand-to-hand combat
- Suspicious in-app purchases
Heroes and Castles 2 makes a mess of both its genres, offering mushy action and brainless strategy that rarely merge in a satisfying way

Mark tries to juggle strategy with slaughter in muddled hybrid Heroes and Castles 2, and ends up being murdered by a skeleton. Sigh - Fridays, eh?!
DescriptionTo your left, lumbering Giants smash into hordes of skeleton warriors. To your right, Knights cut through lines of Goblins with their lances. Behind you atop your castle walls, Dwarf Riflemen unleash a salvo of musket fire into the incoming Orcs. The enemy has only one intent: to destroy your castle, and you, hero, are its only hope!
