Ancient Romans may have given us the calendar, indoor plumbing, concrete, highways, and socks, but according to Aggressors: Ancient Rome, it’s their contributions to 4X gaming that will go down in history.

Singleplayer-only 4X “lite” turn-based galaxy domination vs 6 AI factions, featuring 2D graphics and charming combat animations.
Starpoint Gemini Warlords is a rightful heir to Starpoint Gemini 2. The title “Bigger, better, fancier!” would sound great…if it wasn’t for the inexplicable resource gain ratios introduced in it.
A real-time 4X space strategy game that throws free play out of the window for pre-defined missions. Sounds interesting, but how well does it excute all this?
