A little background.... I love ancient city building games and have been a diehard fan of Caesar/Pharaoh/Zeus/Emperor since Caesar II. I still have all of those games installed (except C2) and my gaming habits involve playing through them all and then repeat from the beginning. I wanted something new this time around, and there is nothing like them out there. (Children of the Nile sucked).

I like building, and I don't like killing. Ancillary warfare in some missions is fine, and I don't mind building up my military to click them off for foreign service when asked. But since everysinglegame on the market today involves warfare as its primary focus, I am glad there are a few titles that just let me use my brain to manage resources and build something cool. This game requires that you have troops for a lot of the missions, but planning ahead and over-building a strong military means you only have to point your soldiers at the enemy and you can get back to building your city pretty quickly. If you expect "Total War" you will be VERY unhappy.

This game uses area-of-effect for a building's service coverage and that made for some really ugly cities in the early missions. Once I got over my "walker" mentality, it was easy to plot out housing blocks with excellent coverage and happy citizens. I never had trouble with fires, crime, unemployment, or running out of resources beyond the first couple missions. One slave camp will staff every eligible raw producer within its range. Six each logging camps and brickworks, clustered around a few mines and farms, will supply you for most of the mission and by then you can send a military unit across the map to set up a new outpost near more raw materials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game even if a couple years old January 30, 2012
I just got the game for Christmas and have played through the classic campaign and part way through the Agustus. The graphics are great and the missions challenging, you need to think and plan a bit before building. The game is simliar to Caesar III and IV but much better, it does not have all the "walker" issues of Caesar III nor the extremely limited build areas of Caesar IV. The building of the cities is the best part of the game but all the different troops you can create is fun too. I have had zero problems with the game but since I do not have a guide book I've had to learn some stuff by testing it out. A quick search online will provide key game details.

Overall the game is a great value under $40 and it's now selling for around $8. Lots of fun.

Waste of time and money. I could never figure out how to play it. Guess I'll pass it on to a youngster who knows how to play these games. Not at all what I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good game! February 21, 2014

Much different that Total War Rome, Not as much about combat as management of the economy and keeping the plebs happy. Has kicked my butt a few times! Only negative comment was the unlock code on the case was so light I had to get a bright light and magnifier to make sure the numbers were right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Pleasant January 29, 2014
By Del

Like others, I read the reviews wondering if this game was worth giving it a shot. Thank goodness I did. Installation was a breeze on my XP. Not buggy at all except when in pause mode while placing a road in a tight neighborhood. Only in Tarraco did that happen repeatedly. Didn't bother to experiment in other maps to see if it can happen there. When it happens, game freezes. So you have to end the process and relaunch to continue playing.

There's an in-game help guide found only whenever you click Help on the Info Panel. The tutorial is quite informative and fairly easy to accomplish. The Classic Campaign will further teach certain elements of the game. You'll see that based on the Objectives you need to complete. Once they are completed, you'll get a Victory message and if you like to may in fact continue playing the map. You can always play it again to see if you can do better.

Whether Free Build or Campaign mode, the game requires that you Create A Character first. That too is fairly easy to create. There are five families to choose from and each of them are well-gifted. You won't know how it is so until you select that particular family. Afterwards, another page will display allowing you to select the gender, first name, portrait, and a tick box if you like to start with 25 talents or not. That last part is where it counts. I created two characters: one with 25 talents and the other without. I chose the latter to start my campaign run and learn the ropes. There is no way of choosing a difficulty level with this game. So if you want to make it easy on yourself, then select to start with 25 talents.

Selecting to start with 25 talents, also lets you start with 10,000 denari instead of 500. You can only spend these talents and wealth before or after a mission.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gameplay
This game is great, I love medieval games, unlike total war this game gives you free control on everything. The overall game play is great.

2.0 out of 5 stars too involved for a turn based game
This game is not very easy to learn as it is too involved. Plus being a turn based game makes it even more difficult to be able to enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars great game for beginers :)
Just got into gaming a little late in life, Over 50 and I love the the buildings games!
Would love to know what other games of this nature would be good for a newbie ;)

1.0 out of 5 stars I would be something more battle oriented
Just missed my expectations. I had hoped for a more global presentation like civilization, or the old Rome Total War.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kind of Boring
I liked the game up until the solider options were available. I play Total War games so maybe that was what was boring about this one.
