I'm studying Ancient Greek and this game is a fun diversion from endless declensions and conjugations! I'm also a fan of Caesar III -- and still play it! I love city-building and civilization-building games. I never played this one "back in the day" but when I saw they're still selling it, I thought I'd better check out a game I had missed. I'm glad I did -- it's a lot of fun! There are improvements on game play over the original Caesar games and the graphics, while "cartoonish", are fun and I think they capture the spirit of early Mediterranean cultures (Minoan frescoes were certainly fun-loving). If you're into this type of game and appreciate what may now be considered "vintage graphics", then you should definitely check this out.
Also, the seller on Amazon Marketplace delivered the product quickly and in excellent condition, just as advertised.
Sold out software has done it again. This game is really a lot of fun. Considering when it was originally designed the programmers did a fantastic job. I realize that the "kids" out there that play all the war games and "kill" games probably won't like this but to anyone that wants to spend time at their computer just having fun, without killing something, give this one a try. It really is a lot of fun.

This is the best city building game there is. CLASSIC. There is so much you can do with this game. I would like to see another one similar to this come out in the future. Also see its expansion pack with Atlantis.
