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.
Summary: This is a beautifully presented, and creatively planned game, on every level. The tutorial campaign is helpful, logical and incredibly informative.

Pros: easy game, great sound track and some graphics look great
Cons: no challenges, could have had better graphics

Summary: Well what can i say Glory of the Roman Empire is a sweet game you can build how you want and anouther good thing about it is you can watch your city form the first house to the First Birth, and it is hard but it challangs you to keep at it, the main campain game is fun as you will swarp betreen...
