Legion Arena Reviewed
8:21 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The Gamers Temple recently posted a review of the PC version of Slitherine's role playing strategy game, Legion Arena. Choosing either Romans or Gauls players battle in over 100 scenarios using more than 20 unique units including Praetorians and Elephants. Gamers Temple gave Legion Arena a score of 75%, recommending it to any aspiring general looking for a quick battle offering strategic depth.

You can either take the simple approach of “line them up and rush”, a fast easy way to get the battle started, or you can take a little more difficult approach. The more difficult approach is, of course, recommended because it will (hopefully) reduce your casualties and maximize the number of kills. This approach involves taking a moment to review the battlefield, terrain, enemy units and characteristics of your squads. While positioning your units in Legion Arena you should pay particular attention to the terrain and make sure that the squads you are using are suited to the terrain they will be fighting on. Terrain plays a huge role in the combat calculations in the game, and it is quite possible that you will watch your prized squad of cavalry get handed their heads by lowly skirmishers on uneven ground in the forest.
