Excerpt: What happens when Capcom combines Devil May Cry with Breath of Fire ? The result is a watered-down Devil May Cry pseudo-RPG with little redeeming value. Featuring some superb graphics and music, Chaos Legion otherwise fails when it attempts to integrate RPG elements into a decidedly mindless action game.
Excerpt: Capcom has become one of those heartless videogame corporations with a knack for calling any random tripe it excretes from its bowels a game and hastily putting it onto store shelves. Every once in a while, though, a masterpiece does manage to escape their churning posterior.
Excerpt: Legion is a high-level strategic game set during the conflicts of the Roman Empire in Western Europe circa the First Century BC. It's not an historical game in the sense that you'll play the role of the period's historical figures or participate in the campaigns of the period. Instead it models the troops, economies, and tactics of the time period and then leaves you free to try your hand at expanding your empire.
Excerpt: Legion is a 2D turn-based strategy game based around the time of Roman empire's conquests. The game is somewhat similar to the Lords of The Realm series. It has low system requirements and it is currently available in most stores for around $30 USD.
Excerpt: It's so rare these days to find an RTS that actually has something new to add to the picture, but Legion fits the bill. On the surface Legion looks like a lot of the other historical titles that have come into vogue as of late. Over the past 10 years I have played at least that many titles involving Ancient Rome in some way. But Legion is by far the most interesting, and in many ways, the most historically accurate.
Excerpt: If the Romans thought their empire was universal, the appeal of the Roman Empire continues to be universal today. Oft-imitated but never repeated, the Empire at its peak was a nation of sixty million people with an infrastructure that would rival a third world nation today; all achieved almost two millennia ago. Charlemagne, The Holy Roman Empire, Napoleon are all institutions or people who tried to resurrect the zeitgeist of the Romans.
Excerpt: Gamers, wannabe Romans, countrymen…lend me your eyes. Without having had a decent Romanesque conquest game of note in a while, Legion is on the scene and, while not one of the most realistic of games, it will bring you many months of gaming enjoyment.
