In the second game of The Great Battles Series, you are put in charge to lead the Carthagian army through Alps and Pyrenees mountains, playing as Hannibal, a great and brave commander. The last game of the compilation brings the events where Gaius Julius Caesar, the incomparably leader of Rome, fights in the Civil War. There are two modes available: Battle Mode (where you play solo or having a remote opponent) and a Campaign mode. In the antiquity, there isn't a revolutionary defense system, therefore, the warriors fought closely, with swords, lances and other such weapons. Also, there existed few military units with catapults. But, despite this lack of modernity, the armies adopted pretty good strategies. Overall, this compilation is a tribut to the great history personalities, recreating very well and with a high dose of realism those events.
