Bellerophon is great. The Greeks are great. Sparta is great.

I'd love some AI, but still the smooth graphics are enough to keep me interested.

The game is spec'd to have 2 types of oasis-style maps. This one is 'Median Oasis' based on an oasis in Media (modern Iran). The other is 'Saharan Oases', which will come bundled with Alpha III.

Definitely the Phalanx. Not sure about the Testudo--it's out of our time frame.
