After the Persians cleared the pass at Thermopylae and the straits of Artemesium, the stage was set for the first large-scale encounter between the Greek Allies and Xerxes. Picking up after my Persian Wars #4, we follow these two implacable opponents right through to the epic naval encounter known as The Battle of Salamis Bay. As always, the maps, the characters, and the situations are all historically accurate. Themistocles of Athens beat the Persian Armada at Salamis -- can you?
Persian Wars #5: The Emperor's Fist was a blast to play! Ths story was fun to read and the missions were challenging, to say the least. I learned a lot about this part of the Persian Wars from just reading the history section. And I loved the mission, "Athens in Flames." The mission combines a bit of strategy with quick reflexes. I highly recommend this for download. Campaigns don't get much better than this!
