Despite the commonalties that Soldiers of
Anarchy shares with countless other games, it really exists in a genre of
its own. With a leisurely pace, a story that develops rather slowly and
missions that approach epic proportions, it defies nearly every convention that
we’ve come to expect from real-time strategy titles, even though all of the
familiar elements are in place. In order to truly enjoy Soldiers of
Anarchy, it’s necessary to abandon all preconceived notions and accept what
it has to offer, though this takes both time and patience, given the decisive
victories that must be accomplished to progress through the various objectives.
Because of this, it’s a difficult game to recommend, though I have no doubt
that it’s destined to be a sleeper classic and will be remembered as fondly as
its forerunners, Syndicate and Shadow Company.
