Not a fan of this one… It feels incomplete. The ending is sudden and short. As far as I can tell, you only have 2 opportunities to raise your stats in the entire game. The romances (at least the female ones) are underdeveloped, and the endings basically imply you’re nothing more than their lover, at best.
The whole Franz path is very underwhelming. You have a relationship bar with him, but it’s never used. Cut content, maybe? And if you actually try to get Franz on the throne, it’s like the game punishes you for doing so. He’s apparently a terrible emporer and there’s nothing you can do to change it. Whilst Alexandre is the perfect emporer no matter how you play it. Why even give us a choice when one is objectively superior?
And as some other people have pointed out, the game is much more focused on Alexandre than you. This isn’t necessarily a problem, as long as it’s done right. I really enjoyed how Choice of Alexandria handled it, unfortunately it’s not so well done here. Whilst Ptolemy was the more important character, you were still the main character of your own story. You could mould him into whatever you wanted, you could manipulate him for your own gain, you could even become king yourself! In theory, you have a lot of control over the outcome in the Eagle’s heir, but it never really feels like it matters. You choose the outcome of the story, but the game manages to make you feel effectively irrelevant, like you had no impact.
