Rome wasnt built in a day

  • Excerpt: What can you do in CivCity: Rome? CivCity Rome is an ingenious city builder inspired by the world of Sid Meier's Civilization. Through dozens of missions, each offering many different scenarios, you will be charged with building, nurturing and managing Rome's great constructs as you attempt to lead the Empire from modest beginnings to its mighty zenith. The game is created by both Firefly Studios and Firaxis Games.
  • Pros: detail, vast buildings you can create, good rts
  • Cons: troublesome at times, odd animation flaw

Not very thought out.

  • Summary: I'm a fan of city building games, so I decided to give this a go despite the rating it has received. I thought: 'It can't be all that bad, surely?'. I was wrong. The game was disappointing from the start. I persevered for three long evenings trying to enjoy it and just found myself going through the (quite dull) motions. The things I liked about the game were the graphics. There are some nice details and obviously a lot of effort has gone into making the game look good.

About as Civ as Space Invaders

  • 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.
  • Pros: Easy to play
  • Cons: lacklustre graphics, not very challenging, the only resemblance to CIV is in the name

The Caesar clone

existtoin..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: CivCity: Rome comes from the same developers who brought us the games like Civilization 4, and so its is expected to do quite well even if not that much as Caesar 4. For those who have played the other game which was released at the same time period, Glory of the Roman Empire, CivCity doesn't seem to have any edge here.
  • Pros: sounds and music, somewhat Roman architecture, challenging
  • Cons: looks less Roman, outdated graphics, lots of flaws, historical inaccuracy, difficult to manage

"Lackluster Graphics"

Glenn, Mighty Ape

  • 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.

  • Summary: CivCity Rome,allows you to take control of one of the most powerful empires of the time. Ranging from religious monuments and public specticals. Truely a game not to be missed by fans of the type. CivCity Rome, also allows you to take control of Romes military powers, however these seemed like last minute additions to keep people happy as the battles are that of the same as the Sega master System era.

Not quite as good as expected...

  • Summary: I was really looking forward to buying this game, been a big Civ player and also having worked my way through Ceaser and Master of Olympus/Atlantis and Master of the Empire (which all still get alot of play in our house) I think I expected this to be a nice mixture of the genres. I wasn't overly disapointed, the graphics are nice, but the buildings are a little 'samey' even though there are a lot of them - it can be confusing when placing shops as they all look the same...
