GameplayEdit

There are some who say that salt water is the key to victory on dry land. In Age of Darkness, Greece best exemplifies this spirit.

Although it is considered a minor power by virtue of its lack of powerful mechanised land units and somewhat decrepit air force, Greece however is an ideal faction to use, especially if you enjoy seaside excursions. Like Japan, Greece functions best on maps where there are many mountains and plenty of water dividing you from the enemy. Firstly, Greece has the ability to save on timber costs for buildings. This is useful especially in the early game where aircraft is constructed using timber. Secondly, Greece also has tougher buildings which tend to throw out more projectiles at enemies foolish enough to attack you, making them more formidable to attacks by your foes, so if you are pursuing a defensive strategy, you can be assured your cities will help mount a heroic defence whereso needed.

The Greek is somewhat primitive, and needs some skill for proper use. For its air force, it only gets the French Br-693 attack plane for bombing, and its mechanised land components only consist of fairly weak tanks — the FT-17, the Vickers 6-ton tank, and rudimentary WW1 units. The most notable Greek units thus far are infantry — the evzones, an elite class of riflemen which can be recruited from the National Assembly; and the Sacred Band commandos are amongst some of the more notable units of the Greek Army.

On the waves, however, it is another story. Greece is able to field advanced submarines, making its navy somewhat more relevant especially in the late game. Thus, a Greek player should always attempt to keep to the islands where possible, and to concentrate on amassing a navy at all costs. If land is sparse, who needs armoured cars and tanks, when there is little room to manoeuvre? On the other hand, destroyers, while costly, are fairly available. One destroyer is equal to two heavy tanks, so you can use these alongside the harder-hitting cruisers to bombard enemy troops into submission, while the submarine fleet should be used to destroy carriers, cruisers and capital ships.
