Excerpt: Impressions has made a reputation for itself with its line of ancient city building games. First there was the Caesar series which focused on the Roman Empire. Next they turned their attention to Ancient Egypt with Pharaoh and its expansion game, Cleopatra. Now Impressions takes you to Ancient Greece in their latest game, Zeus: Master of Olympus. Does this game bring anything new to the series, or is it just a rehash of the prior games with Greek looking graphics?
