  1. It's paced, moderately intelligent, and has a micromanagement appeal. It's also slow, occasionally simple, and has little direct control.
  2. 50
    Some strategy fans may want to give it a look since it's priced at a reasonable level of just 20 bucks, but most gamers will want to steer clear -- its rough interface with touchy touch controls, confusing navigation, hands-off combat and mostly frustrating mini-games all come together to form a title that is, ultimately, better left in the past.
  3. Our main problem with History Great Empires: Rome is that the historic elements are only surface level and the strategy elements aren’t much deeper than that.
  4. History Great Empires: Rome delivers minimal production values and suffers from technical issues and a bad interface. This is a battle you don't want to take part in.
  5. The story of HISTORY Great Battles: Rome will be written on one of history’s pitch black pages. The controls are awful, the gameplay is dull, the graphics are among the ugliest ever seen on the DS and the framerate drops ever too often. There is only one conclusion to be drawn: this product should’ve never made it to the store shelves.
