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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

Spartan...an undiscovered treasure

Amazon
19 May 2005
  • Summary: I found this by accident on the 'clearence shelf' of a large games retailer. Actually, it's a recent release, but seems to have largely been ignored. Well, a fantastic game. An empire-builder that is right up CIV's alley, but with battles fought in pretty cool 3d.

One of the best turnbased stratergy games I have ever played

Amazon
19 May 2005
  • Summary: This game is brilliant! It has many of the features we have come to expect from these games. Ithas all of the features of its two predocessors, 'Legion' and 'Chariots of War'. The battle is based upon winning as many cities (through warfare alone) as possible and offers better close up views of...

Come on Slitherine!

  • 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.

Good game

19 May 2005
  • Summary: Spartan is a turnbased and realtime strategy game, its turn base in the campaign screen were you manage your fledgling empire and real time for the battles. Spartan is a massive improvment on previous titles from Slitherine, diplomacy is more indepth, combat works better, updated graphics and even a...

Decent game worth the bargain price

YaromCMG, Amazon
19 May 2005
  • 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.
