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.
Summary: I was very happy that my current game of Caesar III Win 98/95 works on my laptop with MS XP. If you can find a copy of this game, it is worth buying. This game has enough features and scenarios that keep the challenges and interest alive. See your ancient city come to life, watch the growth and/or destruction depending upon how well you run your city. Sound, voices, and graphic detail is good.
Summary: I bought Caesar III soon after I found the demo on a computer at home. I've been hooked ever since. Through difficult adaptation, I have advanced through many ranks. It's a lot of un if you want to distract yourself from life for a few hours at a time. I highly recommend Caesar III to anyone with an analytical immagination. The only bad part about it is the fact that it takes up all of your free time.
Summary: Caesar 3 is unstoppable! You can play it a million times and each game will be different. The cities in the game can be huge, one of my cities covered the whole map. The game is very easy to play, you have to build a Roman empire, and take care of it's residents. You have to build loads of things, like schools, libraries, theatres, markets, farms etc. A cool effect of the game is that every person says something when you right click on them.
