Game Description:For most people, the name "Hannibal" brings to mind images of elephants, Alp crossings, and wild tribesmen. While the march from Spain into the Italian peninsula may have been what was immortalized in verse, Hannibal's campaign against Rome in the Second Punic War (Punicus is Latin for "Carthiginian") actually encompassed over fifteen years and ended in resounding defeat. Great Battles of Hannibal brings us ten battles from this period, ranging from the massacre of Flaminius' Roman legions at Lake Trasimene to the exhaustively studied, classic double envelopment of Cann? and on to the final defeat at Zama. Like its predecessor game, Great Battles of Hannibal includes a campaign game which attempts to give the player a few strategic choices to accompany the tactical battle engine. All together, it's quite a package.
