Gates of Troy
Too little of an already tired formula.
Gates of Troy is a stand-alone expansion for the strategy game Spartan, a sort of Total War Lite, bringing six new scenarios and no new concepts. You get to play some games set in the pre-history of Greece, including a Trojan War with all the hero-generals you know, but the Thermopylae scenario, with the tense feeling of a last stand, is the only one that shows much creativity.
Like its predecessor Spartan, trade, construction, research and diplomacy play a large role, but war remains a last resort. Several new structures have been added, including the legendary Trojan Horse. The AI seems much tamer and the game less challenging. It’s nice that you don’t need the original installed to play this one, but thereâ€™s not enough here to make Gates of Troy any more than an average scenario pack.
