    It certainly doesn't have the purely visual or kinetic appeal of a game like Rome: Total War but there's plenty of depth to be enjoyed here. Fans of turn-based tactical games will find this game to be a really tough and rewarding challenge.
  2. Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar lets the little nerd in you run free without the possibility of getting caught and pigeonholed for life. Just remember to hide the lightsaber under the cough when company drops in.
  3. The A.I. remains pretty predictable, so most of the single-player challenge is due to the A.I.'s larger armies. Worst of all, there's no PBEM. With battles lasting for hours, multiplayer games are just too difficult to coordinate and play.
  4. Koios Works is building the best ancient wargames since the "Great Battles" series of the late nineties. [Aug 2005, p.74]

    Would have earned a 9 but for the interface. Good, solid, entertaining game waith an AI that can be frustratingly difficult to outmanoeuvre.
