Summary: I played the heck out of Caesar III and when I saw this on Gamestop.com I had to get it. I was a happy with it from the beginning. They added quite a bit while also modifying the game some to make it more playable. While it is not as intricate as other strategy games, it is a pleasant diversion from other games.
Summary: I got attached to Caesar II, and ordered version IV thinking to find an even more pleasureable experience. Unfortunately, this game is so complicated to manage that one's ability to build beautiful cities and/or govern a province is lost in the morassof killer details. I say "killer" because dead is what you swiftly become for not being able to fulfill the myraid obligations and requirements the game throws at you.
Summary: Apparently, this game does not play we have tried unsuccessfully to figure out why, it keeps saying that it needs the original disk installed. We supposedly bought a new game and not a copy. When trying to research it others have had the same problem...
Summary: The guy at PC gamer who decided to give this gem a 54 is one heartless bastard. This game is exactly what someone who has been playing the Impression titles from the start could ask for. It perfectly recaptures the same relaxing tension and excitement with breathtaking visuals and detail. Nothing is as satisfying and rewarding as looking at the living, breathing city that you created in th is game.
Summary: I don't have a lot of experiance with it yet, so things may improve over time. It was a lot easier to place roads and buildings in Caesar III. It was also easier to move around the map. One good thing is that there is a lot more variety of things to grow, manufacture and sell, though it makes managing things harder, but that's okay.
Summary: I had been playing my old Caesar 3 when I decided to look to see if they had came out with a new one. Works with Vista , minor issues, had to copy 1st disk onto my hard drive. Its been fun to have new scenarios and challenges. Glad I purchased , found a good deal on amazon for this.
Summary: I should have read the majority of the reviews before I tried to install this piece of crap. Won't load cab3 files. Won't load, can't play it, no good , piece of crap. If you need to spend as much time looking for and applying fixes and work arounds to make software run then that's just a sign of extremely sloppy production practices. Do they test these before releasing them, what's the story? A very frustrating waste of time and energy.
Summary: This game is a total joke. Regardless of the system you are running (ive tried it on all three of my machines) there are serious issues with the sound causing you to have to play it silently. It is complicated at least but perhaps too much so given the limited bulding area and the variety of buildings need to succeed..
