powerful combination that includes six full games. Gamers can visit a
plethora of different worlds, from the far flung reaches of cosmos in
O.R.B. II - Off World Resource Base in a battle between two powerful
alient races or the war torn cities of Jagged Alliance 2 that pits players
against players in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Whether it's the lands of
Europe and the New World in Europa Universalis II that has the player in a made race of
conquest and discovery or the battles of Julius Caesar in Celtic Kings,
this entertaining six pack guarantees gamers almost a year of endless gameplay.
Although some of these appear a little
dated, the majority of titles still hold up quite well to games of similar
genre and were the true precursors to modern strategies games.
Once again, Auran have priced this magnificent boxed set at $29.95 that
can be purchased online at www.auran.com
or at your preferred software retailer.
Interestingly enough, there is only one
game in this set that is based in the future that has the gamer
collecting resources and battling their alien opponent in a battle for
conquest. Celtic Kings and Legion are your more standard real-time
strategy games that is similar to games such as Warcraft or Age of
Whereas Patrician and Europa Universalis II are
your more intense strategy
games that is more about micro and macro-management of your universe as
opposed to Jagged Alliance which is more your strategic game that is in the same vein as
Commandos that has the player controlling a squad of elite militants.
