Summary: This game reminds me of Caesar III but with slightly better graphics, that do not make up for the lack of game-play. Let me say that Caesar III was more fun for game-play. This game was worth the 99cents i paid and I am glad i did not pay anymore.
Excerpt: "...workshops and the Circus Maximus, CivCity Rome offers gamers an intense and detailed look at Roman life. It is now possible to see how the Romans went about their daily lives for the first time in a city builder, you can actually look inside the Villas, the forums, and even the Roman baths. The game has many varied characters that will interact directly with you and bring drama to your city. They will each show a range of emotions, their state ...
Pros: detail, vast buildings you can create, good rts
Excerpt: "I bought this game a couple of months after it came out as I like the whole city builder genre and I have also enjoyed playing the Civilization series of games. When playing it though it quickly became clear that the only thing it has in common with Civilization is the name. It is more like the earlier Caesar range of games which I also enjoyed playing. This isn't enough to make it stand out from the crowd. The gameplay isn't challenging enough and ...
Pros: Easy to play
Cons: lacklustre graphics, not very challenging, the only resemblance to CIV is in the name
Excerpt: "...Glory of the Roman Empire, CivCity doesn't seem to have any edge here. This is a city building game and it is only close to being one as it seems to be only able to give some challenge to the older versions of the Caesar and the other games which released long ago. One again, the only advantage for the game may be the fac that it got some challenging and complicated missions and this may be only a big disadvantage for the new gamers out there. MINIMUM ...
Pros: sounds and music, somewhat Roman architecture, challenging
Cons: looks less Roman, outdated graphics, lots of flaws, historical inaccuracy, difficult to manage
Summary: I love Rome. Its a great atmostphere, rich economy and powerful military.
But where is the military in this game?
There NEEDS to be a game set in Rome where the player can truly take control of
the military and economy side of things. Not a half military fighting back
riotting rebels and the occasional wave of barbarians. I think I'll have to
settle with the Total War series for the time being.
Medieval 2 rocks!!
Summary: Civ City rome was an interesting game at first however the controls and the
building aspects leave a lot to be desired, it does not also help that the
graphics and graphical interface is boring, the game can go from easy to hard in
a few levels but no matter which path you choose there is only 9 missions each
for a total of 18 available missions, quite a short game.
