Summary: Let me first state I am not an avid gamer, the last video game I finished was Bully on PS2. I am a 20 something college student not a 12 year old boy so when my boyfriend bought me a DS lite I thought he was insane until I found this game. I agree the graphics are poor compared to what video games these days typically look like. It is a strong strategy game geared more towards adults or geeky kids.
Summary: History Channel games may not be technically the most innovative, but if you enjoy the Roman period of history, this is a fun game. It is basically a DS version of so if you played Legion on the PC, then you will know what you are getting. If you haven't played Legion, the game involves building structures within your city (farms, mines, baths, etc) which allow your city to grow and better types of soldiers to be recruited.
