  1. It's a beautiful game that attracts with its looks and dynamics rather than originality.
  2. Although Cleopatra is just as enjoyable as "Pharaoh," it doesn't really change the experience for the better.
  3. A great addition to Impressions' city-building series,"Cleopatra" is a must-have for Pharaoh freaks.
  4. Most of the new scenarios are both challenging and interesting, the additional monuments are all superb, and the new features are welcome additions.
  5. At times it’s enough to make the would-be follower of Pharaoh yell, “Holy Moses!”
  6. The only problem with Cleopatra pretty much remains the only problem with Pharoah. As near as I can tell, no change has been made to the way walkers wander around your city randomly dispensing services like so many civil-service tooth fairies.
  7. 80
    The gameplay gets a little repetitive, but fans of "Pharaoh" will definitely have fun with Cleopatra.
  8. A must-have expansion for any serious monument builder, with the added attraction of being able to skip those frustrating levels for anyone having difficulty completing the original game.
  9. Cleopatra is both more difficult and more complex than "Pharaoh," but it also makes the game seem new and fresh.
  10. 80
    Other than a few new monuments and industries it's really just more of the same, but if you couldn't get enough of Pharaoh, then you will definitely love Cleopatra.
  11. Doesn't really add enough that's new to the game, nor does it tweak the gameplay enough to fix some of the problems in "Pharaoh."
  12. 86
    While those who waltzed through the first game will certainly appreciate the new additions and challenge, this pack may be a little intimidating to those who are new to the series or who had a little trouble the first time around.
  13. It's a diverting little game but it doesn't reach any great heights.
