About This Game

Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar takes you to the plains and forests of ancient Gaul where Julius Caesar wages a decade long war to subjugate the barbarian hordes.

Hegemony Rome will immerse you in the history like no other real time strategy game ever before, forcing you to pay close attention to the changing seasons and rapidly changing military situation. Unfolding across an epic satellite-accurate map stretching from the Mediterranean coast to the British Isles, the game utilizes the Hegemony series' trademark zoom to seamlessly take you from a grand strategic view of your empire right down to the battlefield at any time.

Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar brings the past to life as you manage your armies and manipulate your enemies in a beautifully drawn simulation of 1st century BC warfare. Bring all of Gaul under the rule of the Senate and People of Rome. Or, unite the Gallic tribes in the expanded sandbox mode and end the threat of Roman rule forever.


    Direct from the hand of Caesar – Four campaigns follow the conquests of Julius Caesar as he wrote them in Commentarii de Bello Gallico. Bridge the Rhine, invade Britannia and conquer the Gauls in over 100 objectives or choose from over 20 factions in the epic sandbox mode.
    All new map – Explore over one million square kilometers that are seamlessly zoomable, from the Mediterranean coast to the shores of Britannia.
    Improved graphics engine – Hegemony Rome supports 10x the terrain detail over previous installments and features a diverse and immersive landscape to explore.
    Build an empire – The construction system allows players to build forts, walls, and bridges at thousands of sites across the map to cement Roman control over the barbarian kingdoms.
    Promote your legions – Players can train officers to augment their unit’s skills as well as appoint governors and construct buildings to expand and improve their cities.
    Starve your enemies – Supply camps and logistics system makes sieges and supply lines more intuitive and more important than ever.

I suspect that there is a good, perhaps even great game, hidden in there, behind the constant crashing.

After 15-20 minutes the game crashes, every damn time, making it impossible to play. This is an issue that was reported, by many players, at least a year and a half ago, and it still isn't sorted out by the developers.

Can't play a game I can't play.

Seems like three months after release they pretty much abandoned this game and did H3... really feel ripped off.

This game had great potential, however it was brought down by a lack of enthusiasm by the developers to make it into a polished product.

The Good--
- Some attention to historical detail. The towns and cities throughout Gaul come with a small snippet of history about them.
- Complex supply and recruitment system. As you conquer more territories and resources, you must work them into your supply network in an efficient manner.
- Sometimes challenging AI.

The Bad --
- Optimization is poor to non-existent. Even if you have a higher end machine that can run far more demanding games, odds are you will suffer from extreme lag.
- Very buggy and prone to crash.
- Small selection of recruitable units.
- Awkward and clunky unit command system.
- No further fixes in sight. The developers have stated that they have moved on to other projects, so if you are waiting for patches and fixes, you may have to move on as well.
