  1. The best game out there for casual players, or players new to the simulation genre.
  2. It has a gorgeous engine which lets you create stunning scenes with your towns and cities. Anyone with a flare for simpler Latin times or who really enjoy city builders – you don’t want to miss out on this.
  3. So while the game's atmosphere, its intuitive interface and visual splendor are very commendable, it simply seems to lack more direction in terms of design. It's like the developers had all the tools, but lacked more imagination.
  4. If you are looking for something that you can play leisurely, then you might want to take a look at it. If you want something with a bit more depth, you would be better off looking elsewhere.
  5. Personally, we’d probably rather pick up the Rome DVD box set – there’s more than thighs exposed in that little number.
  6. Pretty darn easy to get into, but it doesn't have a ton of depth or historical significance beyond that.
  7. It may lack challenge, but it's a decent start for newcomers who won't be thrown to the simulation lions.
