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 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 love this game, I recently had to purchase a new copy because I lost my original due to a move. I play it for hours each day, I am retired and have time to play. I played Caesar III for years and purchased C-IV upon it's release, and was more than pleased with the visual and technical improvements of the game. It makes you work to succeed, and go on to the next game.
Summary: Its fun, challenging, and if you have played the previous Casears, slightly different because its more in a 3-D mode. However, the game does take a lot of the computer's resources and runs a little slow, even on new machines. I have a state of the art computer and had to turn down the games settings.
Summary: I enjoy sim games a lot, and was a little scared off about this one due to so much news about crashes, incompatability, etc. So, after installing it, I dialed all the settings down to the minimum resource consumption and away we went! The mouse lags, etc., are still present but are not anywhere near as bothersome. It is a great game for systems thinking and leadership development. Along the way, you actually learn a little about Roman culture, beliefs and priorities.
Summary: This game outshines the previous caesar III. You need a fast PC with a good video card in order to enjoy this game, The graphics is superb the gameplay is still preserved. Hail to tilted mill for doing a wonderful job on this game.
Summary: First off let me say that if you are interested in this game keep in mind that the majority of reviews on this page are giving it poor reviews based on the game not being able to run properly on their outdated systems, with a newer system this game is fantastic and quickly and easily surpasses Caesar III! This is not simply Caesar III with better graphics which is what many people seem to have been expecting.
Summary: I'm a fan of building historical civilizations and this one is my favorite. The other one is Children of the Nile. The graphics are very nice and the interface isn't bad as well. The tutorials are very informative as well as the manual. The scenarios are nicely detailed and get harder as you go through them. I like the zooming levels and the fact that you can rotate the camera 360 degrees.
Summary: This game is great if you have the right computer for it. I have an XP, so all I had to do to get this game to work smoothly was adjust the graphics a little. If you are looking for a world builder game, than I recomend that you look into this.
