Summary: Overall, "Caesar IV" isn't a bad game and I've probably thrown more than a hundred hours at it over the years. The three-dimensional playing field is great, as is the music that plays in the background. The military portions of the game (if you opt to have them) can be frustrating, as the units don't always respond well to commands. I'd recommend this game to those who are patient and enjoy managing a whole bunch of different resource chains at once.
Summary: Ever since I played Pharaoh and Cleopatra I have been addicted to city-building game and this game makes me smile. Despite some annoyances with rotation angles and the really small city maps (for the beginning missions)I enjoyed the new 3D look and if you have an awesome gaming computer, the shadows, lighting and passing day effects will look amazing. Overall, I was not extremely hooked, but it's a game you can definitely play in passing.
Summary: I guess I've had it about a month. I read all the reviews before buying Caesar IV and was a bit worried about bugs and graphics requirements. I have a three year old Pentium 4 3.0 ghz processor with a half gig of RAM and a Geforce 7600 256 mb video card. The game runs fine on the factory default settings. I have not felt the need to look at or adjust them. The game great and plays perfectly. No crashes or video problems at all. I have not played online yet.
Summary: What a great time you can have in Rome! The basic gameplay is intuitive. There isn't a lot you haven't done before. The interface is pretty standard and can be minimized off the screen for screenshots or just zooming around without distraction. As with all these types of games, you can spend a lot of time building and developing. You need to take some time enjoying this one, for the closeup views of the city at work and at play is what is so new here.

Summary: Caesar 4 is getting a reputation for being riddled with problems. This is unfortunate, as the game itself is a fine effort by developers Tilted Mill. They have achieved an admirable balance between maintaining elements of the earlier Caesar games, and providing something new. The improvements are certainly the graphics of the game, and also the distribution system.
Summary: An addictive game, which has kept me up well past midnight. If you enjoy maps, urban layout planning, and patient strategic thinking, this is the game for you. (Don't buy it if you are of the action-and-adrenalin persuasion.) It does take plenty of system resources. I own a Dell XPS 3.2 GHz machine with 1GB RAM, and there are still a few bells and whistles beyond my reach (it helps to have a sophisticated video card, which I don't).
Excerpt: O jogo é muito bom, mas na sétima fase da republica deve ser imposivel de conseguir 60 de prosperidade. pois estou tentando faz quase um mês e não consigo mais que 42. se alguém tiver uma dica por favor, grato!
