Summary: Like the game and the idea. Its a long game, so you get a lot for your buck. I found the game way to easy and had no problems at all completing the campaign without reloading. You can complete most of the missions without building half of the buildings available.
Summary: Very nice game, for me who is an old gamer who played all the Ceasar and Paharaoh series, and who tried a lot of clones to find a true successor, this one is the true best candidate, graphically gorgeous and historically accurate while keeping the fun element, get it if you like city building games
Worth a look for Sierra fans needing a new city-building fix
27 September 2012
Summary: A little background.... I love ancient city building games and have been a diehard fan of Caesar/Pharaoh/Zeus/Emperor since Caesar II. I still have all of those games installed (except C2) and my gaming habits involve playing through them all and then repeat from the beginning.
Summary: In response to one of the other reviews, this game is a city builder and although there is some military warfare Grand Ages Rome is not supposed to be anything like total war. Also by the comments he, and many others, made I think he was a bit confused on how to play the game.
Summary: The biggest problem with modern City Builders is they have a control radius around buildings, exempli gratia: if you place a house more than 20m from a workplace then the inhabitants would rather emigrate than walk their lazy asses over there.
