Slitherine's Legion Arena has received another review, this time from Strategy Informer. The game drops players into the Roman Era and gives them control of an army. To succeed they must keep their troops alive long enough to gain experience and new abilities. Calling the game unique and addicting Strategy Infromer recommended Legion Arena to fans of the RTS genre.

From the review:

So exactly what gives this a twist? Well after each battle your troops gain experience, which isnít that different than many other titles by now except that you choose the units specific upgrade. Like many RPG games that offer feats for your character, a similar way is presented here. So a group of militia could gain 'Block', an ability that adds a bonus +3 to defence for instance, or 'Anti-Infantry Specialist' which gives juicy attack bonuses when they face infantry.

This mechanic gives a great way to create really specialised units for specific battles, so if you face a cavalry heavy foe then break out the anti-cavalry hordes youíve nurtured. To help even more you can customise units to easily let you identify what they are, so associating colours with abilities can be a big help.

Freeverse Software is in the process of bringing Legion Arena to the Mac. The rest of the review can be found at the link below.
