Expeditions: Rome review

Rome wasn't built in a day, but did it really take this long?

It's taken me dozens of hours--and at least a dozen more than I'd have liked--but finally I've done it. I've built a digital legacy for Robertus Atellius Somethingus that's worthy of the glory (and twatty imperialistic entitlement) of Rome. I've assembled elite legions that have conquered Asia Minor, north Africa and Gaul, I've besieged cities, toppled corrupt Senators, assassinated enemies with my Wild Bunch of praetorians, and impressed a particularly horny and hubristic Cleopatra with my arrogance.

It's a solid CV for anyone applying for the role of Ancient Roman Consul.

Expeditions: Rome is a historical RPG that streamlines elements from games like Total War, with its campaign maps, and Divinity: Original Sin, with its tactical turn-based combat and CRPG-style overworld traversal, into an adventure that spans vast swathes of the Classical world.

Score: 73/100

An uneven epic whose historical richness guides it through some awkward pacing.

Well, I will be looking forwards to playing this when I can. I hope there is a scene with Maximus Decimus Meridius bellowing "Are you not entertained?".
