    This game demands quite a lot from you, but if you’re willing to immerse yourself in micro-management and suffer infrequent frustration from a district gone wrong, you’ll find a brilliant old-school city-builder set in one of the most interesting locales imaginable.

    Nebuchadnezzar tries to capture the feel of the iconic city builders of the 90's like Pharaoh. While it offers an interesting Mesopotamian setting and some new mechanics regarding space and supply management, it does not provide meaningful challenge and a production level that would make it as iconic. Hopefully, it will be enriched with content from the community in the future as it currently is pretty barebones.

    Classically styled and rich in detail, Nebuchadnezzar's city-building fun is hindered by micromanagement and trading issues.

    A solid city builder in the spirit of classics like Caesar and Pharaoh. The complex economic system is challenging but also can get frustrating towards the end. The lack of a sandbox mode is most unfortunate.

    I fear my childhood has prevented me from giving Nebuchadnezzar a fair chance. It was never going to meet my expectations because I was holding it up to a level of quality that few have been able to match in the past 20 years. This isn't a bad game; it just not one that you'll remember in a year, forget a decade. So instead of recommending this, I recommend you instead spend half as much and buy Pharoah instead.

    Too unbalanced and lack of content. Not even close to "gold" standard of Pharaoh/Zeus/Caesar, which are simple and enjoyable. Does this gameToo unbalanced and lack of content. Not even close to "gold" standard of Pharaoh/Zeus/Caesar, which are simple and enjoyable. Does this game have the potential? Yes. But I'm sure it will only be a time-killer, not a great game. Expand
