Sparta: Ancient Wars

Strategy Informer
14 April 2008
  • Conclusion: Pushing on to see if this was an anomaly in the proceedings, I was impressed to find that, with patience, these kinds of battles do indeed become increasingly regular and original (as, for instance, elephants join the fray, and siege towers bear down upon crumbling walls). If you have the sheer will power to push on through the vast mire of early drudgeries, there are jewels to be found buried deep within Ancient Wars: Sparta, but whether you’ll still be motivated enough...

  • Excerpt: It could be said that you don't need much to advance an RTS title that would rapidly build its modest community of players. You need at least two factions differenced in terms of abilities, and balanced for gaming pleasure sake;...

A Greek Tragedy

GIN
13 August 2007
  • Excerpt: The other week there were a couple parties friends had to celebrate the release of the movie "300" to DVD. To spice up one party some, I brought a copy of Ancient Wars: Sparta along because it was obviously inspired by the film. Unfortunately, it might have been more fun if I had brought an aging copy of checkers or Twister instead.

Ancient Wars: Sparta

Game Over Online
7 June 2007
  • Excerpt: The more games I review, the longer I do it, the more I come to realize that really original games are very few and far between. This is especially true in the RTS genre, where a single good idea will spawn copycats for years to come. Some of these copycats, either by exhibiting a gripping plotline or superior graphics or perhaps an advanced AI manage to claw their way above the general noise of the pack. Ancient Wars: Sparta is not one of those.

Ancient Wars: Sparta

ME Gamers
29 April 2007
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Okay, so this game isn’t based on 300, but it’s nevertheless quite an epic beast in itself. Set in the lovely lands of Greece, the game features three main civilizations: the Spartans (altogether now – SPARTAAAA!), the Egyptians, and the Persians. Each civilization of course has its own special units and strategies, and as you progress through the game, you get to unlock further unit upgrades and build up a stronger army.

Europa Universalis III

Hooked Gamers
25 February 2007
  • Conclusion: Europa Universalis has an incredible amount of depth that -for lack of any better description- is easy to learn but difficult to master. One frustrating quirk that I have not mentioned yet, is worse than all the ones mentioned above. What truly drives me insane is the Terra Incognita concept. When you start the game, much of the world has yet to be discovered by your country and large white massess cover the planet as a result.
