Build the great city of Rome, and eventually rule the entire known world. View larger.
Like many other city builders, Heart of Empire: Rome will force you to rely on your management skills to keep the different castes and classes of people, as well as your political allies, happy. Your growing population, however, requires more than just a roof of their heads. The people of Rome will also require large quantities of foods and goods, as well as lots of entertainment, without which you may soon have a riot on your hands. Your duties and your power will be predicated upon the amount of political influence you manage to gain and maintain in the senate, because as we all know, only rich senators are happy senators.

No matter how well-run your empire is, however, the gods will still strike, and you'll have to remain diligent in watching out for disasters such as famine and disease. And you may remember from history class that Rome almost burnt to the ground several times, so you better keep an eye out for fires. Remember, there were no fire hydrants or water hoses in the ancient times, so you'd better keep a close watch!

The three-dimensional graphics in Heart of Empire: Rome are ground-breakingly realistic, and the user controllable camera, complete with the ability to zoom in on your citizens, lets you get right in the middle of things. You can stroll through ancient streets of your own creation, follow Roman citizens as they go through their day, or watch the traders hawking their wares in the Rome's bustling markets. Run your city wisely through the 14 different missions, focusing on things such as politics, economy, and the happiness of the people, and the senators will help you achieve your ultimate goal of power. Along the way you will be able to choose from over 100 different buildings to put in your city, and you can even hold chariot races in the Circus Maximus and gladiator fights in the world-famous Coliseum.
