Summary: A micro-management nightmare, is putting it lightly. This game needs an update, badly. I got lost first in the complex HUD with tiny print and difficult controls. Hotkeys are difficult to remember and out of place for this sort of game, while the tactics of the game are non-existent.
Summary: When I picked up this game at a "discount" recently (5 dollars off the original price when it was first released) I was hoping it was going to be a competitive release to Rome: Total War. I couldn't be more wrong.

Specifically designed to run on the lowest of low-spec machines this game dispenses with flashy but hollow 3d 'extras' and instead provides an infinitely re-playable (as any of over 20 different...
