Legion Arena Reviewed

Macworld's Game Room has posted a review of the recently released Mac version of Legion Arena. The Roman Era strategy title utilizes elements of real time strategy and role playing as players attempt to build and train a successful fighting force. The Game Room gave Legion Arena a score of 4 out of 5 mice.

Once you’ve outfitted your soldiers (you can even customize the look of their uniforms—a surprisingly handy feature that helps you differentiate newer recruits from seasoned veterans in the heat of battle), you fight. To that end, you’re moved to the Deployment Screen, where you can actually position your units on the battlefield and give them orders—charge, advance, hold for a short time, or outflank your opponents.

You’ll need to pay close attention to the terrain and your enemy during these times—boggy ground will slow your men down dramatically, for example, while wooded areas may help disguise militia who can then burst forth and surprise the enemy. Over time, as you and your men build skills, you’ll unlock new formations and new types of units—heavy infantry, elephants and much more.

The rest of the review can be found at the link below.
