  1. The level of historical detail on offer will be enviable to even the more established franchises, and whilst Imperium doesn't do anything to reinvent the genre as a whole, it's certainly a well-refined product that's worth a look to veteran players; or particularly those of you jumping in for the first time. Solid, if unspectacular then.
  2. Imperium Romanum is fun, but it could have been so much better. There is no story to connect the varied missions -- that causes the game to feel lifeless and shallow. It's a shame, because it looks beautiful and is full of ideas, but fails in vital areas.
