Summary: This game is pretty much Pharoah/Cleopatra set in Rome. There are a few differences, but even more similarities. This, like Pharoah, is an older game, and some people may be turned off by the thought of pixelated graphics. However, because most PCs are newer, you can max out the graphics without affecting gameplay and it actually looks nice, not boxy or blurry at all.
Summary: Starts out fun, but soon becomes impossible to play. You can never satisfy the town's people and although you are asked to build new homes for them, you have no more space to do so. A lesson in frustration...
Summary: There have been many great city-builder games. Caesar III and Pharoah, while dated, are still the cream of the crop. When a new city-builder comes out, you have to compare it to other games that have already been done. The idea of building an ancient city from the ground up is a fun one, and CivCity does a moderate job of doing this. You place houses, roads, resource-mining buildings, resource-processing buildings, et al.
Summary: Average city-builder game that brings nothing new to the table. Suppossedly, it's inspired by the Civilation series (specifically, Civ4), however it clearly lacks any measure of the in-depth experience and obsessive fun the Civ games bring to the table. Game play is clunky and not as obvious as one is used to in either the Civ games or city-building games in general.
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
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.
Summary: Zuerst möchte ich erwähnen, daß ich das Spiel erst 2 Tage habe und mir daher kein geamtes Urteil bilden kann. Es hat bestimmt einige Reize die ich noch nicht gefunden habe. Die Installation war einfach und es gab keine Abstürze bei meinem Rechner. Ich wollte nach der Installation sofort mit der Einführung beginnen. In der Vorschau wurde mir in sehr guter Spachqualität mitgeteilt was zu tun ist: Ich soll einen Steinbruch bauen und Steine sammeln.
