Summary: I really enjoyed 7 Wonders and eagerly awaited the release of 7 Wonders II. However, I was very disappointed when I finished in just a few hours. It's still fun but buy it used, don't waste your money buying it new.
Summary: Game is fun to play. But does not do much more than become a time pacifier. More stratagy into the game would have been nice. For the catagory of game that it is, I would rate it at best; average.
Summary: After waiting with anticipation for the release of this game, I thought it would be really great considering all the delays in the release date. I must say I was disappointed......although it was fun, it wasn't nearly as good as the first 7 Wonders.
Summary: I was really looking forward to this game release, but either I am getting better or this game just wasnt as challenging as the first. I sped right through it and I did not find it to be very hard. I would recommend this for someone who is new to these types of games....or someone younger. I actually liked 7 wonders (1) better. Disappointing.
Bottom Line: Too short, little replay value mar what should be an outstanding game

Summary: I loved 7 Wonders of the Ancient World . I played it through all 3 times and had a blast. All told about 30 hours (I play leisurely). I was expecting a lot from this second effort - particularly since we had to wait so long. I almost asked my ex to pick this up when he was in the UK and Germany for me - but I held off since it is more Euro's then the price here. I got this for under 13 smackeroo's and that's about the right price.
Summary: My husband and I love 7 Wonders, but were slightly disappointed with II. It looks like they went backwards with the graphics. They added a couple of new features, which are ok. We may keep it, but overall disappointed.
Summary: There were other games I have played and they were good and fairly long but this one was really short. I would have thought this game would have had more countries than just the five or six. The graphics were okay and I agree with one of the other reviewers that it did get a bit boring after a while. If you are after a longer and more complex game then this is not for you.
