Don't let that dissuade you from picking this great little title up! While this title is really more of a DS game (the 3D is hardly used except for a few throwaway cut scenes), it still provides loads of gameplay and replay value for the 3DS crowd.
If your familiar with any match-3 game, then your familiar with Cradle of Rome 2. It's more than just a "Bejeweled-type" game as some might label it. There is challenge, meaning and strategy in all of the games 100 levels and you will tempted constantly by that "one more try" compulsion that could keep you playing for hours. There are personal challenge and achievements within the game, but really, the meat and potatoes is to get through all 100 levels and build up Rome. It's so simple yet so effective.
The game is five-star for me because it kept me playing. Getting through all the levels will easily get you around 20-25 hours of playtime (or more, depending on your skill). After that there is an Adventure and Blitz mode that, while not as fun as Story mode, could suck away a few more hours.
This is one of those few games that just taps into the addictive nature of a good puzzler without needing to do anything else. There isn't much in terms of graphics. There really is no "story" in Story mode. Music is ok, but nothing special. But it's sooooo dang addictive.
For new buyers, be warned this is extremely addictive. And for those who've already played on a different platform, then you already know what to expect.
Sit back and get ready for one of the best time wasters out there!
I do think it was a bit tougher (or maybe I just wasn't making good use of the bonuses) than the original Cradle of Rome. I say that because as I recall I got to level 50 or so in Cradle of Rome before I started having to replay levels due to failing/running out of time. In Cradle of Rome 2, I started having trouble around level 35. Like I say, I may have just made bad choices about using the bonuses, but for whatever reason, I ending up playing most of the levels from 35 on more than once.
On the plus side, having to replay a bunch of levels does extend the gameplay!
I enjoyed the blueprint puzzles (jigsaw type) that go along with building each of your structures/monuments. They start off pretty easy, but get more complex as the number of puzzle pieces increases.
