    What makes Nemesis of the Roman Empire truly stand out, however, is the artificial intelligence. On the easy mode, it's a breeze and presents very little challenge. On the tougher levels, it's a real bear that is sure to give veteran real-time strategy gamers a tough test.
  2. There is plenty to enjoy in this game, especially if multi-tasking on a visual level doesn't intimidate. A nice strategic offering.

    It doesn't have the prim and polish that games like "Age of Mythology" and "WarCraft III" might have, but the core strategy is definitely there. Some annoyances with pathfinding and some grouping issues are really the biggest downfalls here.
  4. An intriguing take on the RTS model that provides a rich platform for trying out new strategies in different scenarios.
  5. A solid, enjoyable if ultimately mediocre RTS.
  6. Lacking base-building, deep resource control, and combat micromanagement, Nemesis of the Roman Empire seems to be rather sparsely featured. Even considering the unique supply line modeling, other RTS games have a great deal more to offer.
  7. The truly shocking thing about Nemesis is that it is, for all intents and purposes, identical to "Celtic Kings," with the only noticeable improvement being the name. [July 2004, p.64]
