Great game, hours of replayability

  • Summary: A lot of people keep comparing this game to TW series, but don't be misguided by the lower scores that come from comparison! Spartan, on it's own merits, is a solid 4 out of 5. Why? 1. Spartan forces you to be strategic about how and when and why you attack. Just like in real life, your hand may be forced by a shortage of food or material and that rich city state down the coast may have just what you need.

Great Fun!

  • Summary: I purchased this game with high hopes (Having played Chariots of War and loved it) and this game met those expectations well. Spartan provides a different style of play from Chariots of War, and is in some ways an entirely different game - it is definately much harder (if one continues playing after victory)! Spartan also has great maps and the new commands in battle add a whole new dynamic that makes the game truely something!

Boring.

  • Summary: The only way to win this game is to sit back and build, never, or almost never going to war. Where's the fun in that?

Poor graphics made a good game average.

  • Summary: Wonderful set-up and game play but why give so much attention to the campaign game, types of units and battle modifiers and forget about the graphics engine.

Great Game

Giovannini Pascal, Amazon

  • Summary: I wasn't so keen on the previous games of Slitherine before (Legion & Chariots of war) as they seemed to simplistic to me (Diplomacy, battles..). I tried the demo of Spartan after reading many good reviews and the same evening it made my order for Spartan & Gates of Troy (the add-on). I am currently playing the game all the time. The game is a lot deeper than the previous ones. It has a great AI and a lot of nice features (Trade, diplomacy, buildings).

BEST AI I've EVER PLAYED AGAINST, game is great too ;)

  • Summary: This is one of the better games from Slitherine. While it takes some getting used to the fact you don't get individual control over your units in the tactical battles, the command orders and instructions part before the battles are actually more realistic. The campaign map is beautiful to behold. The UI (user interface) is simple and easy to get used to.

  • Summary: the game seems to be great because it's a strategic game in turns, a lot of options, and you can be like a hero conquering the ancient world.

Come on Slitherine!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 January 2009
  • Summary: Come on Slitherine Software, make us a proper sequal to Spartan.. not those minority interest games that no-one is interested in. There was much interest in Slitherine making Legion 2. I kept up interest in this for some years, and then went back to their website and there was nothing more said about it, nothing, forum deleted. And it could have been a good sequal to Spartan.

Decent game worth the bargain price

YaromCMG, Amazon
31 May 2007
  • Summary: You could call this game a poor man's total war, but don't let that put you off, because it is a decent game. It involves moving units around map and managing towns in much the same way as Rome Total War, but the graphics and battles are not quite so sophisticated. However, one area that seems quite involved is diplomacy, with the player able to use diplomats to influence its neighbours in many different ways.
