Haegemonia: Legions of Iron is a space RTS that will have you fighting with your fleets, colonizing planets, and researching new technology. Gameplay can be more basic than other games like it, you won't have the fleet options and tactics like you would find in a game like Homeworld and the research options aren't as in depth as a 4X game. The game opens with you choosing to fight for Earth or Mars as they attempt to gain independence, these sections act as a tutorial with the rest of the game being the same once the early game is complete, you will later run into alien races. While it had some impressive elements when it released the game is now dated, and there are some bugs, it doesn't do a good job of teaching you the game, the UI isn't the best, and you are unlikely to get multiplayer games together now. The Steam version does have some sound issues but there is a fix that can be downloaded that will correct the error, it may also crash in Windows 7 but there appears to be fixes for people having those problems as well. Even with the issues it is still a decent game just one that has been hurt by age, the price is right though.
