  1. 75
    While perhaps not as deep as "Civilization," the game still manages to entertain you and keep your interests high.
  2. A fun and addictive game that people who enjoy tabletop games like Risk will no doubt get a kick out of and will more than likely sink multiple hours of their life into.
  3. While some gamers will be turned off by a “watch helplessly” battle mode, many others will enjoy the intriguing and thoughtful combat design elements incorporated into Chariots of War.
  4. There always came a rather abrupt moment when city management turned from a challenge into a chore, and the sameness of the battles made it hard to sustain the illusion of waging a genuine "campaign." [Oct 2003, p.106]
  5. 50
    Though it's better than "Legion," Chariots of War still suffers a severe lack of depth. Any sense of sophistication or intensity found in the game is merely superficial.
  6. A good introductory game to the genre but if you've already been introduced it might feel more like an unwelcome guest.
  7. As dry and inviting as the Arabian Desert. [Nov 2003, p.146]
