Recreate the epic history of Spartans, Persians
and Egyptians in three vast campaigns. Fight for Supremacy
in the Eastern Mediterranean, using each nation's strategic
advantage. Instruct you workers to gather resources while
you upgrade your defences with manned city walls, build siege
weapons, cavalry and even battleships...
Wars: Sparta follows a storyline based on realistic historical
settings around 500 to 450 B.C. You can play as one of three
different nations (Spartans, Persians and Egyptians) in your
bid to conquer the ancient world. Command armies with a huge
variety of units, ships, chariots and siege weapons. Arm your
warriors yourself from a vast choice of weapons including
those captured from slain enemies.
Spartans, Persians and Egyptians are fighting for influence
around Asia Minor, Europe and North Africa. Following historical
events, the action takes place with different campaigns for
all three races. Sparta represents 3D strategy in real
time with the newly developed Ancient Wars Engine (AWE), where
the player can use each nation's powers in a bid to beat the
other nations and build up a dominant culture and civilisation.
can strategically equip soldiers with weapons of choice. For
example, your warriors can be equipped with weapons and shields,
they can also be put on horses or on chariots and be given
special abilities. And in the height of battle if you see
a discarded weapon you can also pick that up and use it too.
the biggest headache in this game is the amount of time it
actually takes to build anything. Sitting around twiddling
your thumbs may be some peoples idea of fun, but a little
more speed would have been welcomed.
problem is that it doesn't really matter which side you decide
to fight on - it's pretty much the same experience. While
each nation has their own strength when it comes to attack
(as well as specialised weapons) that's pretty much it. There's
not a whole lot of strategy involved in fighting either. If
you are losing a battle your best bet is to send more troops
in or retreat - not exactly rocket science.
you are a huge RTS fanatic then this game is worth a look.
Otherwise this game is not for you.
