Alea Jacta Est is by far and wide the most complex and historically minded Roman strategy game, or indeed strategy game in general. It's tough to get into, and not in the least bit welcoming to players unfamiliar with AGEOD's titles. With a lot of investment, it becomes a compelling experience that will devour your time, making you forget to go shopping, wash the dishes, or do anything that isn't obsessing over numbers and strategies. It requires a great deal of patience, and even more reading, but I found it more than worthy of the work.

I mentioned when I started this review, that I found myself at an impasse with Alea Jacta Est. How do I score a game that I didn't personally like, but that was more then technically proficient in what it was trying to accomplish. As you can see from the score above, I chose to separate myself from it, giving it the respect a technical marvel like this is do, while also admonishing it for not trying to be a little more inclusive and welcoming to those stepping into a historical strategy game for the first time. If you like, or have played, a game like this in the past, you'll love AJE. If you haven't, just prepare yourself for a lot of study.

В итоге из Alea Jacta Est должна вырасти своего рода интерактивная панорама, которая позволит проследить историю Рима от его рождения до упадка. Те, кого еще не утомил однотипный игровой процесс от AGEod, наверняка будут в восторге.

Man kan simpelthen for lidt i det spil her. Ofte sidder man med en følelse af, at computeren har det sjovere end én selv under spillet. Den får lov til at lege med alle variablerne og den får lov at se alle detaljerne i hvordan slagene udvikler sig. Som spiller sidder man i den grad på sidelinjen og AGE motoren, der driver både Alea Jacta Est og Birth of Rome, lykkes ikke som i Gary Grigsby spillene, med, at give spilleren den duft af krudtrøg, den indlevelse, der får hjertet til at banke for pixelsoldaterne. Der er altså kun nogle og tyve legioner at lege med på et enormt kort med over 2400 provinser, men de bliver behandlet lidt usselt. Det havde klædt spillet at kæle mere for detaljerne, give spilleren lidt flere knapper at dreje på, men det er jo nok prisen man må betale, når man partout vil bruge samme spilmotor til alt fra Napoleonskrigene over den amerikanske borgerkrig og nu, Romerriget.
