Summary

Another great conquer the world game.

The Good

This game was very, much a Civilization with improved graphics. I was really, surprised at the time that Microsoft coould put out a game like this. A very, good game with excellent graphics and sound for the time.

The Bad

The peasants were pretty stupid, and path finding for the AI was always a problem.

The Bottom Line

Advance from a stone age tribe to a classical empire, beating the tar out of your neighbors along the way.
