grand strategic view of the Roman Republic/Empire, this simulation offers many innovative concepts. However, it is graphically dull and suffers from a lack of completeness. Even with its flaws, for a game which feels only partially done, it succeeds on many levels. (Note that the 16-bit versions are much more playable than the 8-bit ones).
 
Annals of Rome is a fascinating simulation. Initial appearances may not be overly impressive, but added playing time yields sufficient reward. The most disappointing aspect of the simulation is that it appears unfinished. Additional game development using different scenarios (startpoints), defined victory conditions, and a better save mechanism would have yielded a much more polished effort. Still, with all its defects, Annals of Rome is a pleasant surprise.
