Perhaps I am overlooking something but at this point I would not recommend Pharaoh Gold for this reason

Tracey Strain, Amazon

  • Summary: I have bough 2 copies of Pharaoh Gold. I run it on a Windows XP laptop. Both have the same glitch. In the scenario for Saqqara I'm required to import wood for the scaffolding of my pyramid.

  • Summary: Mildly enjoyable game, but pales in comparison to its successor Zeus: Master of Olympus. Pharaoh suffers from a number of glaring technical flaws that make the game unreasonable to play. At the top of the list is the slow access to necessary structures.

Error is marketing, Error overall

MARK ROESSNER, Amazon
10 February 2013
  • Summary: When I first saw it online, the description said it was for MS Win 98, XP and Vista, but on reading the fine print on the box, it was designed for MS Win 95, 98 and XP. A little off, but even so or because of it, the graphics aren't as good as MS AOE series and seems really dated.

  • Summary: I don't know what happened, but, it totally messed up my computer. I have had this game before and had no problem. I am disappointed that this happened. This is a very addictive game.

SimCity in Ancient Egypt

J. Turner, Amazon
20 July 2003
  • Summary: Pharaoh is a city building game (like SimCity), but set in Egypt, during the pre-dynastic period. You start by building a settlement, addressing basic needs and continue onward. Unlike SimCity, there are various goals to hit such as population goals. As the game progresses, it gets harder.

If you want more of the same then buy it, if you want something a little different don't bother

  • Excerpt: I purchased the original Pharaoh and was very pleased with it so when this expansion pack was released the decision whether or not to purchase it was a no brainer. Cleopatra unfortunately did not live up to my expectations.

Old graphics in this game

DAVID LOOSLEY, Amazon
21 July 2003
  • Summary: Certainly no Civilization or Simcity. The help is not intuitive and the graphics are so 1990s. They tried, but the help does not show what effect each has on the other.

lioso y poco intuitivo

Arado_Tarado, Ciao

  • Summary: El otro día me bajé este juego ya que se trata de un abandonware (la cmpañía que lo desarrolló quebró y se encuentra gratuitamente en la red) En el juego llevamos a una familia por la historia de los primeros pueblos de egipto. Es un juego de estrategia, al estilo age of empires o warcraft.
  • Pros: seccion de ayuda con muchos datos, gratuito
  • Cons: poco intuitivo, manejo complicado
