    It's a clever little game, especially given the price. Kind of a very crunched down turn-based dtrategy game, similar in some ways to Civilization. I particularly like the chrome that comes with it, like a Sudoku game with Roman letters, and a scavenger hunt where you walk and sail around the Mediterranean looking for cities. Won't entertain you for very long, but for short It's a clever little game, especially given the price. Kind of a very crunched down turn-based dtrategy game, similar in some ways to Civilization.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
