Legion Arena is a real-time tactical RPG by Slitherine Strategies that allows the player to play as several tribes during the rise of the Roman Empire. The player can play as the Latin tribes, the Celts and the Romans. It is published by Freeverse Software for Mac OS X and Strategy First for Windows. Legion Arena includes many different units including war elephants and barbarians. Though it seems to be very similar to Rome: Total War, there are many differences. Though its graphics can't match Rome: Total War's, the game has more realistic features. For example, not all men of the same unit are dressed in the same attire. Also, Legion Arena boasts more realistic tactics. Light infantry fights best in the woods and on boggy ground, and an enemy can take advantage of this by either hitting the light infantry in the open or drawing cavalry or heavy infantry onto boggy ground or into a forest.

Expansion: Cult of Mithras[edit | edit source]

In 2006 an expansion to Legion Arena was released under the title of Legion Arena: Cult of Mithras. It incorporated mythical elements into the normal game.
