    Its a good game, but the people are a little small and i find myself straining my eyes even in full zoom to get a clear picture of just one of the people. Its fun for the first hour or 2 but then it just gets boring. the only fun part is when the enemys come to ur city

    Nice game , lots of stuff to research and build , interesting game play for managing your city , some flaws , troops legions dont square off right , and hard to control battles , some city planning problems as well , like moving homes , and the storage depo's dont have enough control to them , need more setup with them ( they are one of the most important structures , along with Nice game , lots of stuff to research and build , interesting game play for managing your city , some flaws , troops legions dont square off right , and hard to control battles , some city planning problems as well , like moving homes , and the storage depo's dont have enough control to them , need more setup with them ( they are one of the most important structures , along with grainary ) , also tree's get in the way of build , you can build a huge temple , but cant cut down a tree to place it there , lol .. All and all good time waster , lol ,one more thing map dont zoom enough out , even in unlock mode for camera ....so 7 rating. Expand

  1. Though this is a nice city building game it lacks enough to make it stand out from the crowd from other city builders, especially from other ancient city building games.
  2. Mission objectives lack imagination, and after constructing several cities the game can feel repetitive and formulaic.
  3. CivCity follows an old model for a city builder. If you are a fan of the Pharaoh series, you may find a home here with CivCity: Rome. It focuses around the economy rather than any type of military action.
