Overall, Legio puts a nice unique blend of chess and turn-based strategy elements together to form a pretty entertaining game. Though lacking in a story-mode for its single player, the game still allows for a fulfilling experience with each round you play simply because of the different ways you can assemble your army for battle. Most importantly, its simple gameplay is easy for anyone to learn. Once you have the basics down, the next step is finding what style of play works for you. In addition to the ease of gameplay, the graphics, sound effects, and animation combine to add a good touch to an otherwise very basic game concept. Chess can be boring, but Legio makes the age-old boardgame into an action packed struggle for power.
