CivCity: Rome

Game Over Online
29 August 2015
  • Excerpt: You can't beat the pedigree of CivCity: Rome . The city-building game was co-developed by Firefly Studios (of Stronghold fame) and Firaxis Games (of Sid Meier and Civilization fame). Yet... somehow, and in some way, the game went wrong.

  • Excerpt: Civilization IV addicted many people. I warn you already that CivCity: Rome is from the same makers and although I wasn’t immune to Civ IV, I dared starting up this title. Did Firaxis succeed in making CivCity: Rome equally great?

Game Vortex

  • Excerpt: It is Roman fever these days! With a bevy of recent Rome-themed games like Rome: Total War (the best tactical strategy game hands down) and Glory of the Roman Empire , as well as the big screen productions of Troy and Alexander , and the hit Rome program on HBO, the obsession with Neo-Classical...

WorthPlaying
2 September 2006

CivCity: Rome

ActionTrip
3 August 2006
  • Conclusion: In a manner of speaking, CivCity is the exact opposite of Glory of the Roman Empire - while the latter may feel initially more impressive, CivCity wipes the floor with it in the long run.
  • Pros: Intuitive yet detailed interface, deep and challenging if you give it a shot, easy on your hardware;
  • Cons: Opening missions drag on and on, some inconsistencies in the mission design, lack of more ambient sounds and a more bustling city atmosphere.

CivCity: Rome could have been a classic, but it wound up just another city builder.

GameSpot
28 July 2006
  • Summary: Despite the name, CivCity: Rome isn't the next game in the Civilization franchise. While the two share part of a title and a publisher, Civilization IV was developed by Firaxis in the tradition of the classic game pioneered by industry legend Sid Meier, and this city builder was produced by Firefly...
  • Pros: Good ancient Roman flavor, Reasonably solid rehashing of traditional city-building gameplay
  • Cons: Derivative gameplay and garden-variety mission objectives, Dated graphics, Interface clunkiness, A bug prevents you from directly clicking on units and buildings at 1280x1024

  • Excerpt: Тематика Древнего Рима определенно пользуется успехом в девелоперской среде. Только за этот год разработчики подарили нам столько игроисторий о великих цезарях и вечном граде, что любой автор учебника истории для средней школы обзавидовался бы тому количеству информации, которое выплеснули на наши...
