PC Gameworld recently posted a review of the PC version of Legion Arena, Slitherine's role playing strategy game set in the time of the Romans. Choosing either Romans or Gauls, players can battle in more than 100 scenarios with over 20 unique units. Legion Arena only managed a score of 55% from PC Gameworld, in part because of comparisons to Rome: Total War.
Slitherine have been purveyors of fine strategy games for many years. Their game engines to date have been based around a similar concept to Rome: Total War, although establishing the whole ‘turn-based management with real-time wars’ system a long time before afore-mentioned heavyweight or its illustrious Medieval forebear entered the scene.Freeverse Software is bringing Legion Arena to the Mac. For the rest of the review follow the links listed below.
PC Gameworld: Legion Arena Review
The fundamental difference has been that Slitherine have always had a unique combat system for the real-time element of the game. Rather than be able to control your units mid-fight, the emphasis is given to the preparation of the battle, where you can assign orders, routes, behaviours and tactics.
