Summary: Very fun game, addictive and rich with all of its possibilities. The graphics, even though outdated, are charming and colorful making the game pleasant to play along with the Greek styled soundtrack.
Summary: Good god, they sure don't make them like they used to. It's been 12 years since i first played this game and i gotta say it has aged well. A must play for city-sim fanatics, casual gamers and everyone in between. Google for widescreen mods.
Summary: Zeus is by far one of the best city-builder and resource management games of all time. It baffles me that this game really hasn't had a bigger effect on modern games of the same genre. Ironically, though, the "full simulation" aspect of EA/Maxis' new Glassbox Engine does seem to emulate some of the same features. For instance, in Zeus you build a fountain to distribute water to households via water carriers.
Summary: I don't even know what to say; this is one the the greatest games ever made. Years of city building developing experience went into this, and it shows. Truly an opus from an era that should have never ended. Don't forget to grab the expansion if you can find it, hopefully GoG will pick this up soon enough.
Summary: One of the best games I've played. Its better than age of empires, sin city and other similar games. This is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys city building or strategy games. I've been playing this game since 2004 and it never gets old.
Summary: This game is, by far, one of the best city building games on the market. It's not just building a city, but overcoming great obstacles in your way and dominating the entire Greek world. There are many things that can be learned from playing this game, such as diplomacy and responsibility. Overall a great game and a learning experience.

As the game title gives you pretty much most of the hint, this strategy game is based in ancient greece, where the glorious Zeus once ruled. However, as much as this suggests, lots of historical backgrounds and legends are mentioned during those times, it doesn't affect your gameplay at all; it merely sets a scene for ...
Excerpt: "This game is a delightful stategy based on the life of the greeks. Your job is to build thriving communities that worship gods and try to survive attack from neighbouring cities and a life of poverty. You also need to deal with ferocious beasts in some levels. the only way to do that is with the help of a hero that will only offer his services when you have completed a few tasks. This is a very long lasting game with great sound quality. the only ...
