Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder PS3Blog.net Review and Giveaway Contest!


Welcome to PS3Blog.net’s exclusive two part article featuring a review for “Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder” for the PSP and PS3 which is a new addition to growing list of Playstation minis.

[tab:Review]

Playstation minis have been slowly growing into its own over the past year or so with several games being released but all have been pretty easy to overlook until now.

Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder prides itself with being the “worst game ever made” by iFun4all who also prides their self with being the worst development team of all time. They even stated that the North American version of this game was delayed due to them getting drunk all of the time and losing electricity in their tiny Hungarian village.

A sort of stationary tower and defense game based on child like coloring paper, you take control of a tank turret to blast away at soldiers moving at vastly different speeds while picking up power ups to help you kill more hand drawn drunkenly scribbled soldiers.

Obtaining power ups as you kill off these soldiers hell bent on crossing the road is essential on many levels. You can get a slow motion power up, triple tank shot, bring the rain with a 6 missile volley, set up a single or triple triggered land mine or cause an earthquake to shake up the lines.

The whole point of the game is to not allow any soldiers to pass from the right side of the screen, all the way to the left side of the screen. Shooting your shell takes some charging up time and the distance the shell travels also takes a little while so there is a lot of judging time and distance when blowing up the troops. You want to be sure to meet each challenges goal of killing so many soldiers while not allowing a certain number to sneak by.

There are three campaigns and an additional game mode that you can choose from. The regular campaign, Winter Assault and Cyber Wars are the different campaigns while Survival mode is the additional feature mode at the title screen. Survival mode is just an endless assault of paper soldiers to see how long you could last before allowing 50 soldiers to pass from one side of the screen to the other.

This game is fun with no doubt and looks equally impressive (well as impressive as cut up pieces of paper with scribbled coloring and almost brain hurting purposely misspelled words can be) on both the PSP and the big screen.

There are achievements and/or medals that you can go back to earn with each level that you complete and can even go back to try to obtain better results.

After spending hours with this game and laughing at the silly sound effects and crazy blood coming from paper soldiers, I can easily say, much to iFun4all’s chagrin, that this is the one of the best additions to Playstation minis.

Solid 90/100

This review is based on a retail copy of the PS3 version of Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder provided by iFun4all.

    I wasn’t all that crazy about this game, honestly I thought it was going to be terrible but it’s actually pretty good.

    I wouldn’t guess from the tone of the review you liked it. I’m still not moved by this title.

    It’s a good game, I get that, but is it a fun game?

    Ed, that’s not saying much…you had fun while having a seizure!
