  1. The best game out there for casual players, or players new to the simulation genre.
  2. Looks beautiful, but is otherwise a by-the-numbers building game. Fun, but provides no almost no challenge at all. [Aug 2006, p.42]
  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 tire of raising armies and would much rather plant a dozen wheat farms and watch those bakers go, CDV’s latest offering hits the spot.
  5. Personally, we’d probably rather pick up the Rome DVD box set – there’s more than thighs exposed in that little number.
  6. 60
    If you've never built an Empire on your PC, Glory of the Roman Empire is a good place to start. For the rest of us, there isn't much to see here.
  7. The military aspect of the game is almost non-existent, while the economy is overly simplified. [Oct. 2006, p.78]
