Showing 1-10 of 10

Summary: I am reading some 10 out of 10 reviews here.. Honestly- this game is ok but don't expect too much. Personally- I would give a game like Medieval Total War 2 a 9 out of 10 not this one! To put some perspective on things! However, if you can pick this up for a good price I recommend it.
Summary: Very good game IF I was you I would pick up the golden edition of hegemony it lets you play with Sparta and Athene! but back to this version Its great the campaign is much fun the managing of your Kingdom can be very funny and sometimes frustrating when you loose.
Summary: A lot of fun to be had here. A cross between total war games with rts style battles, and an empire builder light. The company seems really cool and worth supporting as well, hopefully they have a sequel in the works.
Summary: A very well done game, good graphics, good music, and a large, sprawling strategic design. There is a lot of replay value here, and the overall "epicness" of the game will have you coming back to play it over and over.
Summary: Hegemony: Philip of Macedon is a little like a simple Total War game without the Battles, you just have a campaign map that has a very RUSE like, zoom in and out feel about it which is actually better than the total war campaign map in my opinion.
Summary: The game is bearable and feels quite fun during the first few hours, but soon you will realise the true extent of this game- the map is absolutely huge. It might appear to be a real time total war but don't expect the extensive trade routes, city building and diplomacy here.
Summary: I bought this on steam and liked it but after the fun high of the first game it got a little old. it is still fun. and is by far the hardest real time strategy i've every played. there are too many cities to capture if they just made the map a little smaller i would give it a 10.
Summary: Hegemony is hands down one of the best games I have ever played. You start with a single city and a ruined empire and attempt to merely reclaim your kingdom. From there the sky is the limit. You can follow the historical path of Philip of Macedon or strike out on your own.
Summary: Overall this is a great game that suffers from a few flaws. For the gameplay, think Total War series but entirely in real time. At any given moment , the player can zoom out to see the tactical map of the Aegean world and then immediately zoom to ground level anywhere on the map.
Summary: Hegemony: Philip of Macedon is an addictive, exciting challenge of epic proportions. After around 150 hours played i'm estimating i'm around 50% of the way through the content and its still not getting stale.
