Reviewers praise the polished and extensive gameplay mechanics, especially the combat system. The atmosphere of adventure and faithfully recreated historical setting also receive good reviews. Opinions are quite divided on the plot, but in most reviews interesting psychological portraits of characters are emphasized.
The main points of criticism are technical flaws and too slow gameplay (in some aspects). A frequently repeated complaint is the long wait for the enemy to make a move, especially on large maps. Additionally, in some missions it is required to clear the level of all enemies, which can be tedious.
Expeditions: Rome is coming exclusively to PC. The game will be released tomorrow, on January 20, 2022. You can check out the game right now thanks to the demo version available on Steam.
