Product Description

Ancient Art of War is a real-time strategy game that is based on the very basic elements of war: Unit types, formation and strength. The game is set in ancient battle-style times before the use of gun powder. Thus consisting of the 3 basic unit types of that period: The light armored but fast "Barbarians", the heavily armored but slow "Knights" and the ranged "Archers". A fourth non-combatant unit type is also available: "Spies", which is only available under certain campaign rule settings.

This game is on parallel with "The Prince of Persia" in terms of quality for the time !!!

No doubt, Starcraft and ALL other Real Time Strategy (RTS) games owe a h.u.g.e. thank you to EA for publishing this game ;)

I've played a LOT of games since owning my original ATARI game console system ... this game will rank in my top 5 FOREVER, no matter what comes along ... if you get a chance, you'll definitely enjoy this classic (and beautiful artwork).

p.s. when playing ... balance IS the k.e.y. !!!
