  • 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: 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. But overally this game is very good and it shows how small/medium companies can make great games!

  • 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. It is actually very good, well balanced and challenging game. Definitely worth the price of a full price game, but you should be able to pick it up at half that price on steam these days.

  • 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. However, it feels more realistic than a total war game and generally is quite fun if you dont aim to complete the whole thing. Worth the 2.50 i paid in the steam sale i got it in.

  • 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. but i give it a 8 because there is to much to conquer. but i think it's better than AOE. so it's a good game but you must have a lot of time on your hands to complete it.

  • 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. You can fight the barbarians to the north and west or head south and conquer the various hellenic nations. No matter what you decide you will have a ball.

  • 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. Enemies will invade constantly, depending on how much their faction opposes you and the season, and you will often need to defend on multiple fronts at the same time, which can be quite a...

  • 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. Thats unbelievable value for money considering some major titles can have as little as 20 hours content. Theres nothing else quite like it on the market that ive come across.
