  • Excerpt: The Roman empire, a vast and intriguing history, full of myth and legend. Sometimes too complicated to wrap your mind around let alone a great game, but Glory of the Roman Empire seems to do this. Be it on a small almost over simplified way, key word being almost. See for a City Builder Glory of the Roman Empire (GOTRE) hits the nail on the head spot on, it's fairly complex yet simple enough for it to be fun.
  • Pros: The Feel of the game is great, the overal gameplay is well rounded and great for all gamers.
  • Cons: The game feels a bit short and maybe could have a bit more content.

  • Conclusion: Glory of the Roman Empire is a great game for those looking to create a functional and beautiful Roman legacy. It has a gorgeous engine which lets you create stunning scenes with your towns and cities. Anyone with a flare for simpler Latin times or who really enjoy city builders – you don’t want to miss out on this for your collection. I said last time to keep your Imperial eye on this one, well now it’s time to get your hands on it!

  • Excerpt: Before we continue, let me be the first to tell you I have logged many hours in simulation games and most of those hours in City Builders, so I am picky. Glory does a great job of delivering an authentic feel to the game, this carries its self from game art work, over all game feel and interface. Sometimes the landscapes may feel a bit over simplified, but in many ways this lends its self well to YOU the city builder.
  • Pros: The Feel of the game is great, the overal gameplay is well rounded and great for all gamers.
  • Cons: The game feels a bit short and maybe could have a bit more content.

  • Excerpt: Glory of the Roman Empire, an introduction. Ancient History city building games have been in short supply in recent times. In fact there's only been Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile released in the last few years. This barren spell is about to end though and over the coming months we'll see no less than three Roman flavoured city building games. The first one to appear will be Glory of the Roman Empire from Haemimont Games.

  • Conclusion: The above also makes scoring the game very difficult. Judging the game on its own merits, seeing how strong the multiplayer mode is and how much fun I'm having in the early stages of the single player game, I can easily see a 8 or a 9 on the horizon. Rushing the game however, forces me to lower the score to a 7 out of 10 and only then because I trust Firaxis to fix the bugs and performance issues in the upcoming patch.

A Roman Holiday

  • Excerpt: Next week we will look at two more games with Roman themes, Caesar IV and CivCity Rome. But this week it's all about glory, Glory of the Roman Empire that is. Glory is a city building game and unlike the other two titles that have popped up in this genre, does not really have a combat interface. The game is supposedly set during a time when Rome was at its peak, so that no outside enemies existed because they were too afraid to go against the empire.

  • Summary: An enjoyable building simulation that should appeal to both hardcore and casual gamers alike.
  • Pros: A simple, intuitive interface and excellent visual elements, as well as a solid, well-balanced learning curve make this one easy for the "noobie" and expert alike; great visual environments and effects; a solid soundtrack and in-game sounds enhance the Roman theme; well balanced and fun; has a solid, lengthy campaign mode.
  • Cons: The edge of the map detracts from the graphics and seems to be flat and decidedly plain; may only appeal to building-sim fans as it is unlikely to reach many cross-over RTS fans.
