Over dit spel

The city builder strategy game Imperium Romanum is set in the time-honoured Roman Empire and players will marvel in the incredible attention to detail when working on a strategy to build a well organised, prosperous and commanding settlement. As governor of a Roman province, the fortune very much lies in the players own hands.

Imperium Romanum is packed with a variety of new features to enhance the gameplay such as a complete overhaul of the graphic engine, a mass of authentic historical buildings such as the world famous Circus Maximus or Gladiator schools.

The Emperor Expansion pack takes the player to voyage through ancient history, from cold Britannia via the wild forests of Germania to the fertile Nile Delta in Cleopatra's Egypt.

19 challenging, new scenarios at historic places such as Aquae Sulis (Bath), Hadrians Wall, Massilia or Treverorum will require all your comprehensive economic and strategic leadership abilities to succeed. Not only your competence, but also your exposure with religion and the Roman deities like Jupiter or Venus will play an important role to accomplish your mission as a Roman governor.

Will you be able to earn the mercy of the gods and rule the empire successfully?

Although Imperium Romanum is now several years old, this city builder is still among the best available on Steam. If you enjoy simple, yet historically rich sims then this game would be right up your alley.

Spam all the buildings from the menu on small areas until your map is full. The sad part about this is that it's not fun or entertaining. The constant need of houses is really annyoing. It feels like work instead of a game.

Truly one of the most boring gaming experiences ever.

Imperium Romanum is a city-builder set in the ancient Roman Empire. If you're thinking, "Hey that sounds just like the old Caesar series" then you're not far off. Much like the old Sierra series, Imperium Romanum places you in a series of towns and settlements and asks you to build housing, establish farming and resource production, and set up industries. You'll also build defenses and armies to protect yourself from barbarian hordes and conquer nearby villages.

I think Imperium Romanum takes a slightly more casual and less complex approach to the genre. First, at least in the missions I played, each level seemed to be completely contained and it didn't seem as though your city carried over throughout multiple stages of the campaign. Rather, each mission starts in a different settlement and gives you goals to accomplish there and then you move on to the next. There is a sandbox gameplay option so if you want to build a super-city, you can do that, but the campaign missions don't seem to be cumulative.

Combat is rather simplistic and basically your troops are limited to a couple of formations, neither of which can actually be changed on the fly once battle has begun.

One thing I did notice here is that unlike a lot of the "historical" city management titles, the game doesn't skirt around the issue that slavery was a common practice. Slaves will do all the building and hauling here, and they get separate "housing" and will not be able to fill the "free" jobs that your settlers will take. If you overwork your slaves (i.e. don't build enough slave shelters) then they are likely to revolt until you get their workload under control.

The graphics are pretty detailed and there is a nice variety of industries and buildings you can introduce in your town.

Overall, it's a nice little city builder for the history buffs, and it offers a more forgiving approach to planning than some of the other similar games I've played. (read this as: I never had to break out a spreadsheet to lay out perfect housing and industrial blocks in Imperium Romanum in order to beat a level. Then again, I might have been an overly compulsive Caesar player. ymmv)

Tedious game. Mediocre at best. Old games like Zeus and Pharoah still surpass this game by miles. I'd say skip this one and get Caesar instead.


You can't build too far from your Forum and will require Marketplaces to expand to other portions of the map. The problem is that each building will require a house nearby to employ it.

You won't be able to design a city that has different zones (residential, industrial, agriculture and so on) everything becomes mashed up.

This in turn creates a snowball effect. For example: You want to build a mining camp for a marble deposit that is on the outskirts of your city. So you create a marketplace, the mine, then houses.

Here's the fun part: The houses will require supporting structures e.g. bakery, altar, butcher. Now each building will require a certain material upkeep which leeches into your economy as well.

So your little expansion becomes a city of it's own. I tried ignoring their need for clothes and sausages but then that little town became rebellious. So for one little mine on the outskirts, I had to create a new town and the supporting structures to it.

The people in the houses seem to randomly choose their jobs. So you might have some unemployment in one sector and a lack of employees in the other. This game just becomes very grating after a while.

Why do they want so many sausages anyways? Every game it's always about sausages.

Look, I enjoyed the game but I dreaded having to start a new sandbox or campaigns. This is coming from someone who enjoys punishing City games like Banished.

I recommend this game. It's extremely well put out, unuique, not a ton of money, and fun. The bad thing is that it does take some practise to be good at it.

What an unerrated game. If you like old school city builders like Pharaoh, Zues, Caesar you gotta get this game.

Decent game, nice attention to details, but gameplay is a little shallow and there isn't much replay value. Get it on sale.

This game is quite similar to another title from the same developer called Glory of the Roman Empire. Still this has its own perks, but its not a simple city builder. You have to work out your economy as best as possible as you make a metropolis out of a collection of smaller cities. When your flow of goods is fluid enough then you just have to worry about keeping people content as you glorify the city with wonders like grand temples and the colloseum.

Its a fine game, but not the best as other games are.

9/10 Defined historical referencing and modeling of cities in ancient Rome make Imperium Romanum so enjoyable

Brilliant game! Basically a newer, more realistic graphic version of Glory of the Roman Empire. To those people who have played GofRE there are a few more structures to build such as bridges and schools. This game never gets boring for me personally unless I get constantly attacked by Barbarians! There are about 5-10 different maps on it too. I know the newer game is Grand Ages Rome which I have on disc not steam, I do wish they would create an updated version that runs direct x12 and all the new features! 10/10

A great Roman city-building sim with some battle elements to spice things up. I really like the studio that made this game, their Celtic Kings / Imperivm III games are still some of my favorites.

Fun game so far - definitely worth $10. I'd recommend it if you enjoy city-building strategy games.

I have played this game for about four hours now and my opinon is that it is very mediocre. It has some good aesthetics, it seems that whoever made this actually wanted to make a good game about Roman cities, but there is simply no climax to building a city. Nor is there really any challenge beyond basic city building, except for the tacked on difficulty accomplished by extremely whiny citizens who don't always quite realize that they do in fact have access to the resources which they are complaining about.

YOU LIVE RIGHT NEXT TO THE TEMPLE! Be quiet! Oh, heck with it, I didn't really even care in the first place.

I orginally bought this game thinking it was that really old game about Roman city building I used to play (EDIT: Caesar III apparently), with legions and whatnot, and since I would love to go back and play it as a decent gamer I was happy to snatch this up. Well, not only is it not the game, but the lack of depth is such that after three hours of playing I felt I had seen all there was to see so after another hour and with no amount of pride I bid my perfect city adieu.

Now, I assume somewhere this is a scenario where you are under constant attack to up the ante but frankly I don't see this as potentially engaging, mostly due to overly simple combat system; combined with an overly simple set of building mechanics I honestly don't care enough to probe any further.

Apperantly the NPCs can't get enough sausage when they're right next to a meat market thats next too a pig farm with livestock. So, might as well riot over it.

I was not expecting a Sim City experiene from this game, I was expecting more of a Star Wars Empire at War or Company of Heros experience... Was a slap at the face. At least I only spent $10 on this crap ._.

Unexpectedly good game, considering other reviews. The historical anecdotes and details aren't always as accurate or relevant (Building a city called Caesarea before Caesar was even born and things like that), but it's nice that they at least try. Gameplay is great, sound can get repetitive sometimes. But the game kept me busy enough to forget about that repetitiveness.
