  • Summary: This is an awesome little gem of game, no other game pushed the details about Hellenistic history so far, the result is a very addictive polished little game that should please every strategy gamer, and you actually learn something about the rise of the Macedonian kingdom while having fun.

  • Summary: I was really surprised by this title, had never heard of the series before but am I real fan of RTS games. Pretty long campaigns and map is freaking huge. Lots of objectives and strategies to use. Worth a look if youre a fan of the genre or ancient greek/rome era games.

  • Summary: Pretty good game. The number of factions all wanting to kill you keeps you on your toes. The gold and food system keeps you from just being able to build loads of huge armies to take everyone out so you need to think pretty carefully which enemy to focus on. Main down side is the awful diplomacy and that it gets a bit repetitive (313 cities is a lot to handle). Definitely good value for money though and a promising start to a franchise.

  • Summary: This game is very original, fun and smart, what do you need more in RTS game, it introduces new concept and the feels of it fit the ancient greece period well, graphics are not so good though but since it is an indie game I give them full respect, the next title will be better in everything including the AI, I am sure the developers will become big soon since the base and the concept of the game are original and tight. a big 9 from me.

  • Summary: This game definitely deserves a close look. It emphasizes true strategy, using means like supply lines, raids and sieges with the possibility to starve out whole cities. Multiple fronts and raids appear quite frequent, which makes the player struggle quite a bit, the pause function and the seamless zoom make up for that, though. The use of formations is also a great thing to experiment with.

  • Summary: While combat may not be as developed as some titles and it lacks the production values of more expensive games Hegemony Gold is definitely a fun game. What makes it stand out in my mind are the little touches, things that I learned as played deeper and deeper into the game. The Hegemony system sets goals for you to accomplish in each campaign, and rewards you for attaining them. These help keep up the pace in the mid-game by giving you ideas on what to conquer next.

  • Summary: this small studio title brings some interesting twists to the strategic gaming table. It is certainly no Total War, but that is not what they set out to be. There are not many games on the market that delve into ancient Greek history, so it is refreshing to see something new in that respect. There are some rough edges in the interface, but overall this is a solid title.
