7th Legion is a real-time strategy game cut from the same cloth as the Command & Conquer series. Control one of two futuristic factions in a campaign spanning more than 35 missions, most of which follow the standard format of building bases, creating units, and researching new technology to give your forces an edge.
The storyline finds a depleted Earth abandoned by the privileged few (called the Chosen) and left to wither along with the less fortunate members of civilization. Strong and resilient, the outcasts split into seven legions to decide who would control the planet. The Chosen, however, sought to reclaim Earth, forcing the legions to put aside petty differences and unite against their common enemy.
While 7th Legion's core play mechanics closely follow other titles in the genre, it features several twists as well. The more kills your army achieves, for example, the more credits you'll earn to build additional units. Players can also discover 20 power-ups and 50 battle cards, which can be used strategically to either help their side or hinder their opponent. The game supports up to four players via modem, Internet, or LAN. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
