Summary: This is the best city building game there is. CLASSIC. There is so much you can do with this game. I would like to see another one similar to this come out in the future. Also see its expansion pack with Atlantis.
Summary: Sold out software has done it again. This game is really a lot of fun. Considering when it was originally designed the programmers did a fantastic job. I realize that the "kids" out there that play all the war games and "kill" games probably won't like this but to anyone that wants to spend time at their computer just having fun, without killing something, give this one a try. It really is a lot of fun.
The best of the ancient city-building games, high fun and excellent replayability

Summary: From Caesar to Caesar II to Caesar III to Pharaoh and now to Zeus: Master of Olympus, so many changes have taken place, and yet the concept is always the same. From the Romans to the Egyptians, we now hit the Greeks, with a strong mythological twist, and it's the absolute best game in the franchise!
Summary: I am Matthew and I am eight years old. (My mom is typing this for me.) Zeus is so great that even my dad wants to buy it to use it to teach to his class because it is so realistic. What else? All my friends love it, even two twins that are my friends are actually buying it because they played it at my house. I especially like it that if you don't build maintenance houses your buildings will burn down or collapse.
Summary: I had previously purchased Caesar and Pharaoh/Cleopatra games put out by Sierra, so I was expecting much the same with Zeus. I was in for a surprise. Although the game has a similar software engine playing the game is much different. In Caesar and Pharaoh, one had to satisfy population, culture and prosperity levels before winning the game and moving on to the next scenario. Usually, my level of prosperity never got high enough to win and I would get bored.
Summary: Ever since me and one of my friends started playing Pharaoh, we got hooked on the Impresions Games. I bought the Great Empire Seris with Pharaoh, Cleopatra, and Caeser III. And of course that wonderful bonus CD! I turned the bonus disk and saw a new game...Zeus. I downloaded it and played. I never had enough time to finish the demo. I played and played until I won! THat was only a small part of a level, called an adventure in the Zeus game. It was so fun.
