Centurion: Defender of Rome
DOS - 1990
Description of Centurion: Defender of Rome
Centurion: Defender of Rome is a game published in 1990 by Electronic Arts, Inc., the theme is historical battle (specific/exact), real-time. It features a action, strategy genre and uses a 3rd-person, isometric, top-down perspective.
An entertaining game with bits of adventure elements (for example, at some point you'll get to meet Cleopatra and try to-- erm-- win her favor), this game is reminiscent of the old Cinemaware classic Defender of the Crown for its strong emphasis on fun over historical realism. (Not surprisingly, since it's designed by the same designer, ex-Cinemaware Kellyn Beck).
As official of the Roman Empire, you must manage armies, calm rebellious citizens, and conquer neighboring countries. Rome wasn't built in a day, but win enough chariot races, and you might be able to do it in a matter of weeks ;) Two thumbs up!

This game is excellent. Even now it captures my attention. There are few games like it. I may try out some of the harder difficulty settings, since I always played as Galley Slave as a kid.

This was a fascinating wargame I recall.. with the strategy of what formation to use for your troops, it was like a puzzle as well as a war game.

A simple but brilliant game, battles represent an earl total war format. holding Gladiator games and chariot racing is very addictive too. I hhave had many happy hours playing this. Thanks My Abandonware!!
