Alea Jacta Est

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Out of the many phrases attributed to the father of comb-overs, Julius Caesar, "Alea iacta est" (The die has been cast) is undoubtedly the most appropriate for something that feels like one of the most complicated board games I've ever played.

  • Excerpt: It has been pretty good time for the Romans. In 2004 Creative Assembly launched Rome: Total War, which was a RTS battle/Turn-based Campaign game. Paradox Interactive followed later with Europa Universalis: Rome, and its expansion Vae Victis.

  • Conclusion: Did I like this game? Yes I did.  Once I was able to wrap my head around the basics of the game, and instead of thinking tactics thinking in terms of logistics and overall strategy, it started to come together. But it took a lot of time and patience to understand it.

  • Summary: В итоге из Alea Jacta Est должна вырасти своего рода интерактивная панорама, которая позволит проследить историю Рима от его рождения до упадка. Те, кого еще не утомил однотипный игровой процесс от AGEod, наверняка будут в восторге.
