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. I wanted something new this time around, and there is nothing like them out there. (Children of the Nile sucked). I like building, and I don't like killing.
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. I'm not doubting that he has played a lot of "Total War" and RTS style games but the game is a "city builder" and not as bad or broken as he made it sound.
Summary: My son wanted this for our laptop and it's in perfect condition as far as I'm concerned. It it used so obviously the case looks a little worn, but that doesn't matter. The game works and my son is happy!
Summary: Personally I enjoyed and still am enjoying this game. Yes somethings could be better, but all in all its fun. The building rules are not that hard to figure out its all common sense stuff, such as you need a building close to a resource to get the resource, you need houses which are people in order to work the resources. Like I said all common sense stuff. If you build the city and pay attention to what the people want then you won't have a problem.
Summary: Played it on Lenovo with Windows 7. The laptop powered down all of a sudden when I was in the middle of a tutorial like a total blackout without any warning. Had to go through some forums. Was told it could be since the graphics card could not handle the graphics. Based on the suggestions, I reduced the resolutions on all the graphics inside the game menu. Did not have any problems since then. The game itself is like Ceasar .
Summary: Die Jungs von Team 17 lieferten stets neue Spiele, in denen die kultigen Würmlinge sich mit einem ausgefallenen Waffenarsenal gegenseitig bekämpften. Nun geht das Studio mit Worms: Crazy Golf in eine andere Richtung und ändert das Szenario von Kriegsgebiet, auf den grünen Golfplatz. Ob das neue Konzept frischen Wind in die Reihe bringt oder ob es sich nur um einen misslungenen Versuch, seitens der Entwickler handelt, erfahrt ihr im folgenden Test.
Pros: Liebevolle Animationen, Intuitive und unkomplizierte Steuerung
