Listen to your citizens! Build a better Rome!

The Good

The music is good.

Graphics are vibrant, and obviously a great improvement from Caesar II.

Battle screens have combined with city building screens. So battles will occur only on edge of the map.

The fact that you have to listen to your people is realistic. A country cannot do without its people. In order to improve your city, you have to listen to comments from your citizens and upgrade accordingly. You also have to manage more minor factors to success, like goods transportation, which Caesar II did not have.

The Bad

Battles are rather boring. You can only defend the city but not attack others.

This game is focused too much on city-building, in my opinion. If it could focus on expanding Rome while building cities, it could be the ultimate city-building simulation game ever created.

The Bottom Line

The assignments can be completed, but you will have unlimited Scenarios to do! Great game with several important factors to pay attention to.
