I see that this game is not popular with the Forum and I think it is very obvious that other than going up in complexity, there is no replayability with this at all. Small Map, same objective, same army, same everything - sorry if I am stating and repeating the obvious.
Not true. In my opinion, there is quite a lot of replayability. I bought the game when it came out and still play it every now and then. The AI always gives a nice challenge and it's very painless and quick to play Hannibal, unlike many other Matrix games. I've bought some of the big Matrix titles, but they have been incredibly tedious to play and I've given up on most of them long time ago. And most of those games have a mediocre AI, unlike Hannibal.
Even if you aren't terribly interested in ancient history, this wargame is very enjoyable and challenging to play.
The forum is quiet, but that doesn't mean nobody plays the game anymore.
