Developed by Plarium using their MMO “formula”, Soldiers Inc is a base building, army training train strategy where players battle each other for supremacy. The game is marketed as being completely free to play, but we’ll see. Starting at 100% free to play, we’ll ask a number of questions and find out some of the more premium elements and reduce the score accordingly!

No (but...) – -10%. There is an optional VIP system in the game that allows players to spend cash to upgrade their VIP levels as well as spending more cash to trigger it for a period of time. Players will gain additional bonuses and perks based on their purchased VIP level.

Yes – +10%. The game sways heavily towards pay to win and so anyone trying to compete at the higher levels will be forced into paying just to keep up with other players. The necessity for premium currency can be mitigated by joining up with other players in a “Combine” (a clan) and their strength in numbers can help out free players. Later into the game the long time it takes to get anything done can be a big grind without having premium currency to finish things quicker.
