Incompatible with Windows 7.

S. Field, Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: Be warned, this game is incompatible with Windows 7, and the developers sole response is that 'Windows 7 is buggy', they seem to have no interest in releasing any sort of patch to fix it.

  • Summary: I've played a lot of roman city builder games and have to say this is the best one, beats Caesar 4 and Civ City Rome in my opinion. Would definitely recommend it!

Entertaining game with some more unusual features.

  • Summary: Glory of the Roman Empire is an entertaining game. There's not much in the way of military strategy, although you will find yourself fighting some Barbarian tribes, but if you like building up cities and societies then this game is great.

Glorious

Mr. D. D. Williams, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a beautifully presented, and creatively planned game, on every level. The tutorial campaign is helpful, logical and incredibly informative. It acts as a set of real "building blocks", enabling the gamer to develop the necessary techniques to succeed in the challenge, or free-building modes.

Too many restrictions

Carol Evelin, Amazon
28 June 2009
  • Summary: Having played Children of the Nile, Zeus and Emperor I was looking forward to trying this out. Unfortunately, they reverted to the main fault of games like Pharoah and Caesar III of building distance restrictions.

Gorgeous Game!!

Mr. A. Rymer, Amazon
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Ditto to all 5 star reviews of this game and yes non-violent games can be addictive as in this case requiring thought put into creation and management. More complex than Lego but just as enjoyable and a 1st class choice for parents/grandparents looking for death and destruction alternatives.

  • Excerpt: This is another one of those build a settlement games. But with the great graphics and gameplay, it's definately at the higher end of the board. Throughout the tutorial there is a voiceover which helps you learn how to play the game, but if you prefer to figure it out on your own, there is a free...
  • Pros: Good gameplay, good graphics

Back to Rome

  • Excerpt: There had been a number of city builder games being released, but only few of them could generate some success and they rest didn't get much of the attention. Glory of the Roman Empire seems to be one of those ignored games, but still seems to have got something attractive in it.
  • Pros: easy game, great sound track and some graphics look great
  • Cons: no challenges, could have had better graphics

Superb game

Giovannini Pascal, Amazon
5 April 2007
  • Summary: I've played all city-builders since Caesar II (yes it goes that far) and this one is currently my favorite. This game is just beautiful. While the construction space isn't much bigger than in Caesar IV or CivCity: Rome, the maps are huge and the nature is awesome with mountains, rivers and animals.
