  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Summary: Vous adorez l’époque de la Gaule, celle de la Rome Antique. Les grands péplums de l’Histoire, les campagnes militaires d’antan. A première vue, le Legion Arena de Slitherine Software est fait pour vous combler de bonheur. Malheureusement, les apparences sont parfois bien trompeuses…

  • Summary: Legion Arena est basé sur un bon concept avec de bonnes idées. Hélas, sa faible réalisation générale n'arrive pas à le hisser au rang d'un très bon jeu. On se prend facilement dans son rôle de leader de troupes avec toute la stratégie que cela comporte, et on passe un bon moment devant sa machine.

  • Summary: Slitherine liefert mit „Legion Arena“ ein grundsolides Echtzeit-Strategiespiel ab – mehr aber auch nicht. Warum soll ich Legion Arena kaufen, wenn ich schon Rome: Total War zuhause habe? Da fällt mir nicht viel ein.
  • Pros: Intuitive Steuerung, Kurze, knackige Schlachten…
  • Cons: … , die auf die Dauer langweilig werden, Altbackene Grafik, wenig taktischer Tiefgang

5 July 2006
  • Conclusion: Zu Anfang macht Legion Arena Spaß, vor allem die Römer-Kampagne motiviert zum Weitermachen, da man sehen will, wie Rom wächst, auch wenn bereits hier durch zu ähnliche Missionen Ermüdungserscheinungen auftreten.
  • Pros: Personalisierte Armeen, Niedriger Preis
  • Cons: Sich wiederholende Missionen, Ein, sich ständig wiederholendes Musikstück, Knapp 60 Missionen spielen sich auf lediglich 10 unterschiedlichen Schlachtfeldern ab, Spieler kann Geschichte in Kelten-Kampagne nicht umschreiben
