Happy Wars, the cartoon-style online role-playing strategy game for Xbox 360 is now coming to Steam. It recieved mixed reviews upon release on 360, but with a few minor improvements it could make for a fun, chaotic multiplayer experience upon it’s Steam release.
The 360 version is an enjoyable enough game with a short story driven single player campaign and a focus on multiplayer, which consists of 2 teams of 15 players attacking each other’s castle, while defending their own. There’s a choice of 3 classes – warrior, mage & cleric – with a few subclasses too, each class has it’s own unique base attack and unique abilities.
The gameplay in the 360 version was most let down by uneven matchmaking, lost connections and a lack of variety in the campaigns. However, the basic gameplay was genuinely pretty fun, with chaotic combat, plenty of customisation options and a good sense of humor.
If they manage to fix the matchmaking/server issues and add a little variety to the campaign for the Steam release, it could be a very enjoyable game, full of chaotic 30 player battles and lots of character.
Update: Beta No Longer Available
