Celtic Kings: Rage of War – Retro Review (PC)
There’s no question that, in their time, the Roman Empire and its army were the greatest on Earth. But, did you know that they almost weren’t? That title may have been given to the Gauls (Celts), very early inRoman existence, when, in 390 B.C., the Celts lay siege to the capital of Rome. In the PC game Celtic Kings: Rage of Wars, you may recreate the struggles of the Celts and Romans against each other, and see how your armchair general skills fare with these armies.
Both sides have a well-rounded variety of soldiers that make up their army. In the Gauls corner (from left to right): a Hero, Viking Lord, swordsman, archer, axeman, spearman, woman warrior, horseman, and druid.
In the Adventure play mode, you take on the role of a young Celtic warrior named Larax, and guide him along as he seeks revenge on the Teuton raiders who destroyed his village, killing his beloved in the process.
There is another adventure available for download, where you take the deposed Prince Camelius and direct him back onto his rightful throne, reminiscent of the movie Ben-Hur. IMHO, much better than the other adventure.
In typical RTS fashion, you’ll have to protect your Hero (or heroes), while going about removing the fog of war, gathering villages and supplies under your care, and seeking out the enemy base for the final fight.
