So many strategy games leave you hanging, wondering why the developers did or didn’t do something. So many strategy games have taken a cue from Firaxis’ latest Civilizations in that they just provide busywork and diversion. Make ten different decisions in a turn just so you can feel a sense of accomplishment. Too many strategy games mistake detail for design, activity for gameplay. Gladius knows better.
There are resource points scattered around that you can capture, and ancient relics that provide army-wide boosts to speed, damage or sight range, but the planet gets samey after a couple of games, and without the depth of a full-fat 4X game, it’s not as replayable. Perhaps with updates and expansions it will gain some complexity and nuance, but until then unless you truly adore the setting, play Endless Legend instead.
