This game is solid 5 outa 10 material. Its enjoyable but compared to many "great" city builders its well, ok.
The good: Looks pretty
Easy to get into
Easy to manage large cities.
The bad Music! What is up with the jazz piano score and flute solo? I felt like I was at a French poetry read at a local book store.
Poor zoom. Doesn't have basic zoom functions like follow or even close up.
Military Im not looking for the next Theater of War but if you put terms like "RTS" in your official description you should at least at commands like hold position.
Lack of game world complexity. Hardly any goods, few services and arbitrary zone limits. While this makes the game easy to jump into I have to knock the game for it. Come on its a Rome simulator, how many casual kids do you expect were going to buy this?
this game is awesome!!!.. I spend multiple hours on the multiple campaigns this game has!.. if u like building cities and having control over everything!!!.. then this game is for u!.. I played tons of civilization 5, and besides the combat, this has more city requirments then what that game has, maybe not more empire building but this game deff. makes u think.. easily worh a 9/10 from me.. I suggest u dl this and play it for free, would hurt 1 thing!
