Excellent buy

  • Summary: My kid can't stop playing it. The graphics are nothing to write home about, but the overall performance is good. If you kid like history or likes battle, this is the game for them.

Disappointed!

Ronald E. Straub, Amazon

  • Summary: The game detail is kind of hard to see. I think for the purpose of just gaming and having fun, this game is to complicated. The instructions are hard to read, due to being such small print. It is just more detailed and complicated than I was wanting. If someone is an avid game player and a die hard strategist, then this may be a good game.

good STRATEGY game

J. Galarneau, Amazon
4 July 2010
  • Summary: The tutorial is absolutely useless, after 3 minutes I restarted and jumped into one of the main campaigns. If your a seasoned pro like myself the learning curve should be no more than 15 minutes. Are the graphics bad compared to other DS titles? absolutely. However GOOD GRAPHICS DONT MAKE A GOOD GAME. Now onto the actual gameplay It's a watered down turned based strat, so you wont have to worry about setting tax rates, making citizens happy, or any crazy build orders.

Build Cities, Raise Legions

S. H. Wells, Amazon
21 May 2010
  • Summary: History Channel games may not be technically the most innovative, but if you enjoy the Roman period of history, this is a fun game. It is basically a DS version of Legion Gold so if you played Legion on the PC, then you will know what you are getting. If you haven't played Legion, the game involves building structures within your city (farms, mines, baths, etc) which allow your city to grow and better types of soldiers to be recruited.

Come on people, it has the History Channel logo on the cover!

  • Summary: Let me first state I am not an avid gamer, the last video game I finished was Bully on PS2. I am a 20 something college student not a 12 year old boy so when my boyfriend bought me a DS lite I thought he was insane until I found this game. I agree the graphics are poor compared to what video games these days typically look like. It is a strong strategy game geared more towards adults or geeky kids.

  • Summary: This game truly sucks, I hate gams that show action on the cover but when you play the game it's about as fun as a grass growing contest. This game truly sucks hard, avoid.

the roman empire

G.P., Amazon

  • Summary: Personally I like this except for one problem that the graphics remind me of the original mario games, in other words everything is really pixelized. The strategy is good except that even on the easy mode it still takes you forever to conquer even one city. On an overall it is a good game but I would say that you should get something else.
