Legion Arena

Strategy Informer
6 May 2007
  • Conclusion: Overall I found Legion Arena to be unique enough to garner interest. While it’s no mega contender, it does have its charm and could easily be one of those games you find yourself visiting time and time again. It has a strange little addiction to it, perhaps that’s just the RPG element beckoning you to create the ultimate legion.

  • Excerpt: Legion Arena can be a deceiving game to the untrained eye. Upon first inspection the game might seem shallow, with only basic graphics and average gameplay. Don’t be fooled though, beneath the surface lies a game with more than enough depth and addictive gameplay. On the one hand Legion Arena is exciting and easy to learn. On the other it’s complex and intricate requiring careful thought.

GamesFirst!
30 January 2006
  • Excerpt: While Legion Arena may have a lot to live up to in the historical strategy genre (like Rome: Total War), the war title from publisher Strategy First and developer Slitherin Soft. does a fairly good job of being its own game. Not as deep as Rome: Total War, but not as frustrating or as difficult, either.
  • Pros: ups: Fast action and a good history lesson
  • Cons: downs: Not epic in scope or concept, lacks the depth of strategy expected

  • Excerpt: Most PC games can be categorized as RPG, strategy, or shooter. However, Legion Arena continues a recent trend of developers blurring the lines between genres. It borrows elements from both a typical RPG and strategy game. As general of an army, the player commands troops in real-time battles. Along the way he also earns experience points, denarii (currency), and fame which are used to buy new units and upgrade old ones.

  • Conclusion: The greatest asset of Legion Arena is its welcoming learning curve. Even the greenest of gamers can pick this game up and begin playing in minutes. Also, the short battles make it ideal for a quick fix in a busy schedule. A half-hour playing session is enough to pound five or six opposing armies.

Legion Arena Review

GameSpot
5 January 2006
  • Excerpt: The back of the Legion Arena box has the famous Julius Caesar quotation "Veni, vidi, vici" on it ("I came, I saw, I conquered"), which is a pretty apt description of this tactical combat game from Slitherine Software. Though its name may make you think it's a sequel to Slitherine's 2002 strategy game Legion, that's not quite the case, as Legion Arena takes out all the strategic aspects of being able to run the Roman Empire.
  • Pros: Fun, fast-paced, lightweight tactical game, Breeze through ancient history and learn at the same time
  • Cons: The game only features battles, There isn't any type of overarching strategic layer to tie the battles together, The limited content and gameplay make for a thin game

Legion Arena Review

GamingTrend
24 May 2006
  • Excerpt: The Total War series has become the benchmark for Ancient Era warfare in today’s strategy game market. With its grand, sweeping battles and turn based strategy, it has dominated the other titles available in the genre. Legion Arena comes to the table offering the ability to get right into the fight against the Etruscans and other enemies of Rome…or even attempt to take Rome on in a popular rebellion.

Legion Arena

PCgames.
18 February 2007
  • Excerpt: [Quelle: ] Stellen Sie sich Rome: Total War ohne Strategieteil, aber mit Rollenspiel-Elementen vor - heraus kommt Legion Arena. Die Schlachten mit historischem Hintergrund spielen sich erfreulich einfach, vor allem die Planungsphase vor dem Kampf birgt taktischen Tiefgang. Einheiten kann man mit Ausrüstung und Fähigkeiten aufwerten. Detailarme Optik und unmotivierte Sprachausgabe nerven.
