Summary: They just don't get it. Stupid game with slow interface (I have a very fast computer). Difficult to manage the complexity with the screens given. Also, the resources screen quantities do not add up and the labor screen plebs needed vs have do not add up once you get beyond about 2,500 plebs.
It does run on Windows 7 but the game controls are really annoying.

Summary: I've read that some people have had problems running this game with Windows 7. I haven't had any problems at all. I have to say that I don't like C1V at all. The game controls are horrible. The rotate and zoom controls are difficult to control.
Summary: As a fan of Caesar III I was VERY disappointed with this game. The only noticeable improvement from Caesar III was a slight tweak to the graphics. Short of that, everything else is downhill. The central flaw of this new installment is that the designers overly complicated things.
Summary: I have read all the other reviews of people having difficulty to run the game, but bought it anyway. I am such a Caesar 3 addict, that I had to have this, even if it is buggy. So I got it and started playing, and it looked great. Then it started crashing.
Summary: The graphics are more detailed, but Caesar III has amusing tirades by Caesar when you screw-up, these are now gone. The interface is slow although it doesn't crash on me, but trading doesn't work and is very frustrating.
Summary: I bought this with much excitement as I love the other Caesar games. My system exceeds the requirements of this game yet I cannot get the game to play with graphics. I called customer service and they told me to upgrade my video card.
Summary: A greatly improved version of C3 but with one of the worst interfaces in the gaming world. I even purchased a new hard wired custom gaming mouse to make the game playable...without success. Bottom line is don't buy this game unless Sierra/Tilted Mill improves the interface.
Summary: Very pretty, if you can keep it working long enough. Before you spend your money, I suggest you check out the official forums for the game. They're flooded with technical fault reports. The "fixes" often include suggestions to roll back drivers, turning off graphics features (!
Summary: I have had this game for just 2 days. After finally getting it loaded it is SO slow I just don't have the patience. It crashed a number of times and the graphics are really awful as well. I have spent many hours playing other games (Emperor, Ceasar I and II, Pharoah and Cleopatra, Zeus, etc.
Pretty disappointing. Crashes, delays and usability problems.

Summary: I started with Caesar2 back when it came out. I played it for hours and hours and loved it. When Caesar3 came out I bought that too and loved it even more and spent even more time playing. Both Caesar2 and 3 rarely crashed. Things have changed!
