From the latest PC Gamer (Nov 2011):
"... This is emblematic of what Longbow gets so right with Hegemony: difficulty and depth can arise naturally as simple systems begin to operate on a larger scale, and the number of interactions multiplies. A no-brainer decision when you have one army and only two or three cities becomes Hamlet in five acts when you have an empire to run."
This is probably the first and only time Hegemony gets compared to Shakespeare so check out the preview here or if you've still got a bookstore nearby drop in and grab a copy.
