Expeditions: Rome Review

Expeditions: Rome begins with you incarnating as a character before sending you on a boat to flee Rome. Your father recently passed away, and suspected foul play could put you in danger, so your mother kicked you out of Rome so your father’s enemies wouldn’t kill you either. Unfortunately, it won’t take you long to learn how dangerous the world is when pirates ambush your ship. Finally, after clearing the funeral, you arrive at the Legion camp in Asia Minor, where the real game begins.

You and your group of allies are designated as a special force group. You go behind enemy lines and destroy ships, supplies, or anything else your order requires. Through it, you demonstrate your leadership and combat ability quickly. After a completely predictable ambush, the former soldier of the Legion is wounded, leaving the chance to command a corps. You go from being killed in Rome to taking control of the Legion in just a few hours in the game. How Legion works is now up to you.

Expeditions Rome's honest review game

While your Legion rests at camp, you and your party move around the map, looking for enemy camps to take down. Some missions require dexterity and stealth, while others require brute force. When you find an enemy camp, you can send your Legion to claim it. They have to win the battle, that’s where you come in. There are critical moments in the war where you need to decide the Legion’s next move. You are not personally involved, but the outcome is entirely up to you. You have three options and have to choose from there.

Each pick can cause one of your champions to be killed, force you to lose more units, or cost you sanity. Bad morale means that the army can desert, which is obviously not good. I was playing normally, and things got much easier after the first few fights. Legion got off to a rough start; half of the units were wounded or missing, there was no real leader, and the morale was terrible. By the time I left Asia Minor, my Legion was unstoppable. I upgraded my tactics to include artillery, added new cavalry units, and finally replaced all the generals leading the battles. As soon as I captured Asia Minor for the glory of Rome, the senate recalled me home and my Legion disbanded.

Politics in Rome is another part of the game. Your legion gets a break while you enjoy the city of Rome to some extent. Your enemies are still common, but no one dares to kill you in broad daylight with your victory. The key decision before entering Rome is whether you disarm or not. When you go to The Rubicon, you can choose to order a Caesar dish. Do you disband and disarm, or do you enter Rome as the victorious Legate? The choice is yours, but know there’s a lot of campaigning to do when you first arrive in Rome.

Honest review of Expeditions Rome

While your Legion is easy to control, fighting your allies in head-to-head combat is a bit different. It’s a top-down tactical style where you take turns. Your team goes first, then the opponent goes, etc. You have a certain amount of Action points and you can use them to move and use abilities. If you run out, the character will be trapped unless they have a tactical item. Killer militia restores your action points, which means you can easily chain multiple kills in a single turn. Putting the correct units into a fight can make a complicated battle simple or an easy one overwhelming. The game is generous in giving you easy targets to refill your action points, thankfully.

Now and then, you need to lead your forces along with the main army to ensure victory over the capital. These battles can get hectic. You control your forces and artillery while NPC allies battle your enemies. I’ve had battles with 40 units that are easy to run around on the battle map. It can get busy quickly in the face of flaming potions, poisons, wall archers, traps, and other obstacles. While the battles are fun, I wish I could speed up some enemies and allies turns. You have to track every movement and that adds up quickly.

When you’re not fighting, you’re exploring. This can be on the map or in some towns, temples and other small areas. The map has chests and loot for you to pick up on the go. There are also random encounters like ambushes, snakes and spiders, merchants, healers, and more. One thing I like about the game is how there are no tick buttons. Instead, there are hidden items and chests in the world that appeal to those with a keen eye for more supplies and loot. And those of you with the best eyes can even snatch Achilles’ spear after solving the puzzle.

Expeditions Rome Honest game review

I had a few problems with the game. When you take the land, the enemy will try to take it back. The maps aren’t huge, but figuring out which cities will be hit can be frustrating. I lost the settlements because I couldn’t figure out where my Legion needed to be to defend it. A marker on the map would be great. It suffers from the problem of finding lower quality weapons with higher damage. I could say a big game about that Achilles spear, but usually midway through the Campaign I get the next level of a weapon I can’t build yet. That means my legendary weapon is not being used, which doesn’t feel right in any game.

I didn’t have any crashes or dropped frames. However, you will find a few animation bugs, a character or two falling through a floor, and sometimes being fouled by the enemy AI. However, the enemy will avoid obvious traps and artillery barrages most of the time.

I’ll make this as simple as possible: If you like the idea of ​​controlling the Roman Legion and conquering in the name of Rome, you’ll love Expeditions: Rome. If that doesn’t sound exciting, then this game isn’t for you.

The almighty Sun Blade is yours to control with Eternal Sphere 4 and the new shmup GRAND CROSS: ReNOVATION by Heenteko Doujin. A super aggressive vertical shooter with a battle between light and dark, should players pick up their weapons and fight?

The Gran Turismo series can boast the ultimate in driving simulation software, but Fábio Fontes says it’s great for the swashbuckling Buck Up and Drive! With wild drift, abrasion, and even a one-on-one combat mode, should players buckle up (and drive)?

For fans of Keanu Reeves, they definitely want to treat their inner John Wick as an unstoppable assassin. omijdm, no doubt a regular at Continental, pays homage to the character with his new Unplugged beat-em-up. It’s one player against the world in this brawl – should players join the fight?
