IGN's Levi Buchanan says that Mobile Battles: Reign of Swords is the first must-have mobile game of 2008:
"I was looking forward to giving out the first 9 of the year -- and Mobile Battles Reign of Swords certainly deserves the hell out of it. This is an exceptionally deep game, composed of an engaging single-player experience and a highly playable multiplayer component. The automated battles are far from a letdown -- they are perfectly suited for the platform. The PC stuff is an excellent addition, too. If you're in the mood for a sweet turn-based strategy game, you will likely find no better in 2008."
