Here There Be Monsters

  • Excerpt: I have braved the dragon-guarded ramparts of the Boletarian Palace, delved deep into the labyrinthine Stonefang Tunnels, and crept through the dark, foreboding dungeons of the Tower of Latria. I've explored the crumbling ruins of the Shrine of Storms and even trudged through the festering marshlands of the Valley of Defilement. I've died more times than I can count, but even death is no escape in From Software's Demon's Souls . In fact, it's just the beginning.

I'm a Souls Man

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Demon's Souls is easily one of the most addictive and engaging games I've ever played. Something about this title drew me in and just would not let me leave it alone. It is a very brutal game that leaves little to no room for carelessness, but since players will never see a Game Over screen it is actually very forgiving. The game expects you to die and teaches you to embrace it.

Imperium Romanum: Gold Edition

Thunderbolt Games

  • Excerpt: A couple thousand years earlier you might have thought times were simpler, but you’d be wrong. Turns out the Romans wanted more or less the same things you see people begging for these days; better schools, more jobs, a higher standard of living and even coliseums, to take in the occasional gladiator match.

  • Conclusion: Overall though it's difficult to fault the blending of elements on offer here. Graphical detail is excellent on high-level systems, whilst the engine is flexible enough to scale down to more modest rigs with ease. The level of historical detail on offer will be enviable to even the more established franchises, and whilst Imperium doesn't do anything to reinvent the genre as a whole, it's certainly a well-refined product that's worth a look to veteran players; or...

Expert Review

EGC GAMES
20 June 2008
  • Excerpt: Civis Romanus sum. As the title suggests, you will be in charge of managing a city of the Roman empire during different times of the imperium. Your goal is to take a modest small settlement into a bustling metropolis by means of satisfying your citizen needs, having ‘friendly negotiations’ with nearby barbarian tribes and most important of all, build impressive monuments such as theaters, Circuses and of course, a Coliseum.
  • Pros: Good visuals and sound, lots of scenarios, good gameplay
  • Cons: Combat mechanics are lacking, additional structure types would have been welcomed

Imperium Romanum

Game Over Online
10 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Maybe city-building games just aren’t for me any more. I used to love real-time strategy games, but then they all started looking and playing alike, and I eventually drifted off to other genres. Now something similar is happening to me with city-building games, except that it’s not just the case they seem identical; to all intents and purposes, they are identical.

Imperium Romanum Review

GameSpot
18 March 2008
  • Summary: Old-fashioned city building and bugs turn Imperium Romanum into an ancient ruin.
  • Pros: Online high score tracking
  • Cons: So crash-prone that it's almost unplayable, Basic design is too dated and generic, Not enough Roman history or flavor, Horribly limited army management and combat
