CivCity: Rome

  • 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?

  • Excerpt: Date: 8/21/2006 CivCity: Rome’s title would have you believe that it is a Civilization game and therefore a Sid Meier and Firaxis production. Well, that’s not the case at all here. The game has more in common with the Caesar series of city-building games than it does with the Civilization series.

Game Over Online
10 June 2007
  • 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: CivCity: Rome, an introduction. For fans of ancient history city building games it's been fairly uneventful over the last few years. Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile was about the only title to arrive in recent times.

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

CivCity: Rom

  • Summary: CivCity: Rom hätte wirklich überzeugen können, wenn die Macher Firaxis und Firefly sich mehr Mühe gegeben hätten. Die unzeitgemäße Grafik und die laschen Präsentationen sind nicht so erfreulich. Der Aufbaupart an sich ist gut gelungen, auch wenn hier und da etwas unstimmig erscheint.
