  • Summary: Two massive armies stand ready and await your command! Paris, King of Troy, has stolen the heart and soul of Helen, Queen of Sparta. Feel the wrath and fury of a king betrayed as Menelaus rages to return his queen. Now two great legions stand poised on the brink of war. May the Gods be with you as you choose sides in an alliance that will soon drown the city of Troy in a sea of blood, all for the love of a woman. Command King Menelaus' Greek Alliance to lay siege against a rebellious Troy to restore the honor of their crestfallen king. Defend your city and your stolen queen against the bloodthirsty onslaught of the raging Greeks. Immerse yourself in historic action with 2 extensive campaigns, each with 8 challenging missions. March your armies onward controlling 9 unit types: spearmen, swordsmen, archers, cavalry, healers and more. Take your place deep inside the Trojan horse prepared to vindicate your king's honor.

  1. About as average as a strategy game can get. It’s certainly not terrible, and there’s a lot of missions spread across two campaigns to enjoy – if you enjoy it, that is. The graphics and sound are fine, but the gameplay is far from perfect, and doesn’t try to push the boundaries of ingenuity.
  2. Lamely rolled out on the back of the film, it's one of those strategy games where you have an overwhelming urge to stop playing after three or four near-identical missions.
  3. This buggy clunker wouldn't be worth playing even if it was being given away for free. [Oct 2004, p.99]
