Legion Arena Reviewed

Killer Betties recently posted a review of the PC version of Slitherine's Legion Arena, the Roman era strategy title which allows players to build an elite force and take it into battle. In between intense real time battles players can use their battlefield earnings to buy upgrades for their units. This combination of RTS and RPG elements inspired a score of 3 out of 5 from Killer Betties.
From the review:
As you place troops you must decide their formation as this affects their combat ratings. As your forces increase in experience, more formations become available to use for each of your units. Once troops are placed and the battle opens, you can give orders to each troop type to engage, move, stand ground, charge and several other commands. An effort has been made to simulate unit facings to attacks on flanks, and the rear of the enemy will be incredibly more effective then frontal assaults.The Mac version of Legion Arena is currently in production at Freeverse Software. The rest of the review can be found at the Killer Betties web page listed below.
Killer Betties: Legion Arena Review
Once the battle is underway, the ability to issue orders is limited by your general's abilities. If he is killed it becomes much more difficult to command the troops and there is a moral loss as his presence will enhance all forces within his command radius. Many of the oddities of ancient warfare are demonstrated in this system in that numbers are far from the most important matter on the battlefield. High moral and top equipment will often overcome immense disadvantages in numbers just as was seen in the battles of the ancient world.
