Legion Arena Reviewed
9:08 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Surfbits has posted a review of Legion Arena, Slitherine's Roman Era strategy title recently brought to the Mac by Freeverse Software. Legion Arena combines elements of both real time strategy and role playing, allowing players to improve their units between hectic battles. Surfbits recommended the game to those interested in a quick battle rather than an extended play session.

From the review:

Getting to grips with the game was pretty easy, mainly thanks to an excellent introductory tutorial, but mastering it was a lot more difficult - not that I would claim to be an expert at all. You have a number of options as to which side you fight on, and you can “pick and mix” your armies strengths depending on the type of battle that you are going to be involved in. The history element to the game was pretty interesting but the actual action was disappointing - not very realistic. It reminded me of a two year period in my life when I was 12-14 when I messed around with “war games” at school - all the effort goes into the planning rather than the execution in these type of games.
The entire review is availabe at the site listed below.
