Gameguru Mania
21 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Cleopatra is an expansion pack for Pharaoh, Egyptian city-building/strategic game. Unlike original Pharaoh where you had to trace Egyptian history from Pre-Dynastic period through the New Kingdom, In Cleopatra you have to finish out the New Kingdom and build cities for great Pharaohs such as Ramses, Tutankamen and Cleopatra herself. In Cleopatra you will face new enemies and have to deal with new industries particular to the New Kingdom.

  • Conclusion: This is a good little adventure worthy of a place on your game shelves. It’s not very long, it’s not very hard, but it is a lot of fun. If you’re still not sure, read about the dedicated group of people behind this project here. Thus we wait in expectation of Cameron’s next case, in hopes there is one. Whatever their next adventure, Galilea is definitely a developer to keep your eye on.

  • 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.

  • Summary: 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.

Cleopatra: Queen of the Nile ( Narratius )

7 Wolf Magazine
26 July 2000
  • Conclusion: Cleopatra: Queen of the Nile - это не просто add-on к великолепной игре. Это тот самый штрих, который превращает прелестную девушку в красавицу, а удачное творение в шедевр. Сочетание Pharaoh и Cleopatra - именно тот комплект, который необходим всем любителям жанра city building (так определяют жанр разработчики из Impressions games, а им виднее). Удачи вам, повелители Египта!

  • 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.
