Steel Horizons review

All the action without all those red and white pegs

Pros

  • Annexing ports
  • Moving across the ocean via stylus
  • Sinking ships
  • tightly lipped

Cons

  • The needless story
  • Strategy at a snail's pace
  • Indistinguishable sea vessels

Training your brain is nice and all, but it%26rsquo;s a wonder that the Nintendo DS doesn%26rsquo;t receive more real-time strategy games. Making ample use of the touch screen could be the most optimal way to corral and deploy sentries this side of a mouse and keyboard. And for the most part, Steel Horizon puts it to good use, allowing you to traverse entire oceans as easily as you%26rsquo;d pick your nose. Selecting which aircraft carrier, submarine, destroyer, etc., is a breeze thanks to your trusty stylus and touch map.
