Do you like SimCity 2000? If so, you might be interested in Caesar II. This game puts war, action, city building, and adventure gaming all in one. Caesar II is the best game to come along in the simulation category in a long time. Not only does it have all these features, but it is also requires hard work and good use of strategic thinking to play. You play God. You control what happens in this newly founded province in Rome. Control how people live, fight for their protection, and serve the Emperor. If you cannot meet these expectations, you just might have to go rule somewhere else.
I've played Caesar II very happily on a Macintosh LC III, where the only thing that slows the play are the “cut scenes” which merely add “ambiance” to the game. Fortunately, these visuals can be turned off. I had only one computer freeze in about twenty hours of play. This annoyance did not recur once I allocated a couple more Megs of RAM. Thus far, I've had twenty hours of absorbing play, and the happy prospect of many hours more. Even the manual is fine. This has been one of my best buys in a long time

Simple gestion d'une ville à la SimCity ou administration complète d'une province incluant des combats, Caesar II est un jeu complet qui ravira les amateurs du genre.

Caesar II is more fun than a toga party. Set in ancient Rome, it is actually two games. The city simulation has you manage ancient Rome and can be played independently from the full game. You can also manage an army to kick barbarian butts.
This is simply an excellent game. The exiting gameplay where many different things can happen combined with great graphics makes it one of the best games of this genre. Download the demo and try for yourself. Don't be surprised if you get stuck by the computer for a couple of weeks.

Proche de Sim City 2000 mais moins pointu et avec des combats bien gérés, Caesar II est toujours aussi efficace et passionnant. Une valeur sûre à ne pas rater.

Caesar II är ytterligare ett spel som blivit för allvarligt. Jag har alltid trott att det ska vara roligt att spela datorspel och inte krångligt. Kanske har jag fel eftersom de allvarliga och krångliga datorspelen tycks bli allt vanligare.
