"Slitherine software has created not only one of the best representations of history in a video game, but also one of the toughest." "Gates of Troy is a great game which combines three of the most popular series around today; Civilization, Sim City and Command and Conquer. The fact you also get to check out some historical campaigns, especially the Trojan Horse, really improves the game to a level that makes it a great strategy title."

"GoT takes what there was of Spartan and improves it, guaranteeing a high longevity through many the campaigns and variega you ways to act. The level of difficulty very is calibrated, sure more elevated of the average but with a good ones tutorial that it introduces well to the game mechanics. (online translator used)"
