SummaryA very good game, but still had it's flaws.....
The GoodI liked a lot of different aspects about the game. One in particular, the cute little characters running around the screen!!! I also liked the structure of the levels, they were true to Roman times. The great thing about Rome was the graphics!!! Great graphics for 1992!!! I am sort of more an Adventure type, but this blew me away!!!
The BadFirst thing I didn't like was the isometric view. At times, you couldn't see where you were walking, but that's probably what the map was for. I didn't like the sound, which was basically a MIDI file in the background. And absolutely no wav files!!! For example, when you are in Rome on the second level, you buy a Gladiator to fight in the games. When the swords clashed, all it was was a MIDI sound. Despite these flaws, Rome was still a good game!
