Description

Another installment in The Great Battles series, Caesar includes 9 of the battles fought by Gaius Julius Caesar: Vercellae, Chaeronea, Bibracte, Sabis, Dyrrachium, Pharsalus, Ruspina, Thapsus and Munda. Game modes include Battle (playable solo or against a remote player) and a Campaign mode where the player has to win the Civil War.

Battles are played like tabletop wargames. Each turn is composed by several rounds of orders that each General can give to his troops (the number depending on his level), the winner of the battle being the first to make the other reach zero in his rout level.
