Look's interesting to me. Sadly they completely screwed up the Persian Civilization. The hero characters are completely off with Assyrian/Babyloian or other middle eastern ancient civlizations.

No Dariush!? No Cyrus!? No Xerxes or Atarxerxes!? Wtf!?

Sargon II? He isn't Persian or Iranian...

Nebuchadnezzar? He's a bloody Babolyian...

Overall though, the game looks pretty good aside from the messed up characterzations of the Persian heroes.

It's fine. Commercialized history is never accurate anyway which is why I'm a bit glad that there have never been any Byzantine themed games or movies.
