Pharaoh

Gameguru Mania
3 November 2002
  • Excerpt: Pharaoh is the sequel to -I guess- well known real time strategy game Caesar III. I was little disappointed by the demo released some weeks ago. Now playing the final release I feel much better about the game. Even if it doesn't bring something different, it's like Caesar, but I think with cooler graphics and sound, better maps, making together much better atmosphere. The map and scenario editor is included.

You are responsible for the economy and defense of the city - providing adequate resources to industry, goods and services to your citizens, and an army to keep your city safe.

  • Excerpt: Last year Sierra released Caesar 3, a game which I played for a long time and enjoyed so very much. In Caesar 3, your goal was to build a prosperous city in which all requirements, which Caesar himself had set for you, were met. In order to achieve this you had to build housing and roads and create a vast number of structures, like farms, temples, workshops, raw materials, theaters and others.

  • Excerpt: Pharaoh wraps up so many diverse aspects of that society and time period, and does it in a very gorgeous, lush, and fun manner. You get to nurture and build, with an emphasis on enhancing security and quality of life for those who look up to you (leadership).

Pharaoh Review

GameSpot
15 November 1999
  • Excerpt: Pharaoh takes Impressions' popular Caesar III, relocates it to ancient Egypt, and adds a few welcome features. Like Caesar III, Pharaoh's gameplay falls somewhere between the intensive city-management of Maxis' SimCity series and the combination of city management and combat found in Blue Byte's Settlers games.
  • Pros: N/A

  • Summary: Честно говоря, совсем уж оригинальных фишек в игре не так уж и много, но они есть. Вот скажем, земледелие. Всем известно, что в Египте оно велось преимущественно на землях, периодически затопляемых Нилом. Так вот и в игре есть такие земли, строить на них можно только фермы, и раз в год видно, как на них постепенно наступает, а потом отступает вода.
