A Slightly Above Average Dream

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Frédéric Chopin was a genius at the piano, and is known as one of the greatest composers of all time. He died in 1849 when he was just 39 years old. Something about Chopin's incredibly memorable piano pieces must have possessed tri-Crescendo to set Eternal Sonata for the PlayStation 3 in Chopin's dying dream, because it seems strangely random otherwise.

Dirge of Chopin

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: When it was announced that tri-Crescendo would be developing a role-playing title for the Xbox 360 under the supervision of Namco Bandai Games, skeptical is the word that came to mind. Indeed, after a slow start, it would seem that the game might live up to the wary thoughts that ran through many a mind during its development. The game in question was Eternal Sonata , or, as it is known in Japan, Trusty Bell: Chopin no Yume .

Caesar IV

Strategy Informer
2 November 2007
  • Conclusion: I’m glad to see Caesar IV; it shows the series is still able to show the rest of the genre a thing or two.  It leaves once again a lasting impact and shows the real depths city building can go to and how strategy counts all the way.  A few questionable elements hover like a dark cloud but honestly this is the best experience you’ll have to sate a city building lust, Roman or not.

  • Cons: Graphics look poor up-close; military aspect is flimsy; interface clutters the screen.

Caesar IV

The Gamers Temple
15 April 2007
  • Excerpt: In terms of PC gaming, the Caesar series is proving to be as enduring as Rome itself. Not many game series are good enough to eventually have a “VI” after their name, but it also means that the latest incarnation of the game has a lot to live up to. Is it one for the ages or the collapse of an empire?

Expert Review

Video Game talk
31 October 2006
  • Excerpt: If you're anything like me then you've spent countless hours over the years playing games like SimCity, Roller Coaster Tycoon, Zoo Tycoon, and the like. Simulation games where you have to manage the everyday life of a given civilization are a dime a dozen and that's a good thing for the most part. Just about anything you can imagine has been made into a simulation game. Ancient Rome is no exception; in fact we're on our fourth serving of Caesar now.

Caesar IV

Game Over Online
17 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Caesar IV is a head-scratcher. It is almost an identical game to CivCity: Rome (released in July), and it shares the same theme with Glory of the Roman Empire (also released in July). Now, I didn't play Glory of the Roman Empire since it appeared to be a lightweight, casual game, but I reviewed CivCity: Rome about a month ago, and the similarities between it and Caesar IV are striking.

Old Rome Week

GIN
16 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Anyone who has been playing computer games and especially simulations any length of time knows about the Caesar series. It's basically like SimCity, but set in ancient Rome. The game even launched some spin-off games like Cleopatra. But it has been a while since Caesar III came out, and most people suspected the franchise might be dead. Then I happened to run into a guy in a very back corner of E3 playing what looked to be Caesar III, but with 3D graphics.

Caesar IV PC Review

DarkZero
18 December 2006
  • Excerpt: It happened about a month ago. A knock on the door got me curious and as I peeped outside a package was waiting for me on the doorstep. Curious as I was, I peeled back the papery packaging and in the package was a beautiful baby boy. Alas, I fib – the real gift was Caesar IV . Well, what can be said? Caesar IV is a mixture of fun and ultimate length.
