    A goldmine for fans of historically authentic strategy gaming. [Mar 2004, p.78]
  2. I would classify this as a game that was a fantastic idea containing a ton of great, raw material. Unfortunately, it is a little rough in the execution.

    If there's a lesson to be learned from Pax Romana, it's this: give us all the finger-licking detail you can pack in, but don't ruin it with a poorly conceived interface. It sunk "Master of Orion III," and it sinks Pax Romana in the final analysis.

    It contains features any die-hard--and patient--historical strategy gamer can get excited about. [Mar 2004, p.91]

    Finding opponents (on the internet) proved a chore given that there's no central lobby or matchmaking service - you have to know the IP address of another player. [Feb 2004, p.67]
  6. While the intent was a good one, the execution leaves something to be desired. Pax Romana has deep content, but the gameplay is a little on the weak side.
  7. Even the tutorials are riddled with poor grammar, grainy, pixilated text, and bugs. If I were Emperor of Rome I’d feed this game to the lions.

Shame I can't find it anywhere, if anyone knows where to buy or download it please let me know. It has great political system which makes it interesting for for anyone (Except people who used to easy mode or spoilers and hints everywhere) Would recommend it to anyone who like strategy games with a challenge.
