Summary: Its a great game. The visuals are good and the sounds are just enough for you to not notice them. Game play is that of sim city. Its a shame that is predecessor didn't do as well. If you like simulation builders this game is right for you.
Summary: Excellent game,even today (after so many years), it's much better than many city building games. It's a pity they didnt do a good job with C4. The economy, society and military aspects are very well achieved in this game.
Summary: Caesar III is from the moment you start playing a captivating game. While not everone will agree with me on this, it's difficulty curve allows for both beginner and veteran citybuilder sim enthusiasts to enjoy the game. Despite this it is still a thoroughly complex and challenging game. It appeases both the general and the city planner in all of us through it's 'peaceful/aggressive' design of level selection.
Summary: It is tremendous to see this classic game still available a decade after its release. Although support for the game from its makers has pretty much finished now, there are still fan sites that support the game. Regular competitive events are still held for the game as well. Caesar 3 is easy to play, but very hard to master. The depth of the game is incredible, so much so that things hitherto unknown are still being discovered today.
Summary: Out of nostalgia, I decided to play Caesar 3 again. It's been 5 or 6 years. The Caesar series is the only city building sim game that I've played so I can't give a comparison to the SimCity games. Anyway, for a game that was released back in 1998, I think it still holds up pretty well today. Graphics is sub-par compared to the games today, but Caesar 3's strength is the challenging gameplay. There are two mode of gameplay; I'll call them city sandbox and campaign.
Summary: I keep coming back to this game. I love the challenge of building the city, and the battles aren't bad now I've figured out the strategy involved. ;) More city building games... please, make more!!
Summary: I think Caeser 3 is a great strategy game that is fun and challenging. I'd have to say that Caeser 3 is a great war game if you chose to play on a not so peacful province. But even with a peacful province you can still have fun by trying to get a lot of people and other things. I like personally building up your city until the whole map is full then I build another city. Like I said before this is also a great war game, you can have up to 96 soldiers in your army.
Summary: I still go back to this game and play it every once in a while. it is one of the best games I ever played. I wish they would re-make it with modern graphics. I am surprised people having so many difficulties at getting through levels. advice: be very smart about strategy. develop this city altogether. you can't concentrate on one aspect of life at a time, fix it up and turn to other aspects. this is not how this game works.
Summary: It may not have the graphics of a Half-Life 2, but where this one wins is in its addictive gameplay. As you're building your city, you'll build different buildings to feed, house and entertain them. The interactions of the properties of the buildings along with the desires of your citizens creates a complex system that you'll need to tweak and balance in order to prosper.
