Critically Sane reviews Alea Jacta Est, newly released on Steam.
CS: "At the end of the day, Alea Jacta Est is a game about mastering the important logistical and operational aspects of ancient warfare. It is very complex and intimidating to the beginner. But for those willing to put in the effort, they’ll experience an authentic recreation of operations in the Roman era. It may also require a bit of study (a lot of the unit types are listed in Latin, which if you studied Roman military history like I did you’ll find awesome, but if you didn’t, you may have difficulty telling your equites (cavalry) from your epibatai (marine infantry)). For the hardcore military fanatic or the Roman history buff, Alea Jacta Est is one of the most compelling, engaging and fulfilling titles on the market. Others, however, will be turned off by the visuals, by the occasional text error, but mostly by the daunting complexity."
