"A city builder game with a big focus on combat, next to the standard city creation. Pay your tribute to a PC genre that died out by now and try this."

Informace o hře

Raise massive armies, embark on epic campaigns to expand the Empire, and take control of the known world! Engage in grand-scale city building and create magnificent cities with creativity and control like never before. Intuitive controls make it easy to launch bone-crushing combat missions and manage every aspect of your thriving civilization.
After decades in exile, your family name has been all but forgotten in Rome. But, the departure of the tyrant Sulla has changed everything, and Rome stands on the brink of a new era. Sides must be chosen as Caesar and Pompey battle for control of the Republic. The stage is set for you to gain power and influence over one of the greatest civilizations in history.
Advanced Battle System
Take command of 18 different military units, including naval command, elephant cavalry, and mercenary forces. Recruit citizens of Rome, draft captured enemy forces, and pay foreign squads for their special skills. Defend and expand the Empire by land and sea with exciting RTS gameplay.
Intense Multiplayer
Online multiplayer functionality with 6 different strategy modes — play competitively or cooperatively. Create buddy lists and challenge your friends to a battle, or use the matching system and take on an unknown foe with the same skill level. Advance your career and increase your rank from praetor to consul and beyond.
Epic Campaigns
Rub shoulders with Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, Cleopatra and more in a non-linear historical campaign featuring over 40 missions. Choose your own fate as you create and destroy alliances with more than 20 different historical figures. Celebrate your victories by erecting legendary monuments such as the Coliseum, Circus Maximus, the Pantheon, and more.
Complex Economy
Flow resources eliminate tedious micromanagement, giving you the freedom to create thriving cities with multi-leveled economic systems. Information overlays visualize the city economy and satisfaction of the people on every location on the map.
4X REAL-TIME STRATEGY:
ExplorE — Journey to ancient Gaul, Britannia, Egypt, and more to colonize barbarians and establish new trade routes.
Expand — Stake your claim throughout the known world in the name of Rome! Help build the empire through military conquest and economic prowess.
Exploit — Natural resources are yours for the taking as you establish farming, mining, and logging operations. Raze barbarian villages for riches, labor, and property.
ExtErminatE — Destroy all who stand in the way of Rome's glory! Defend your territories by land and sea to secure peace and prosperity for the empire.
  • Detailed citybuilding alongside rtS combat dramatically widens audience.
  • Competitively priced within the genre.

If you like ancient city building games, then this is one to play. Graphically its impressive and viewing the citizens go about their lives is nice. This game does however have its down side. It lacks in combat in my opinion and resource management is confusing. The maps are hit and miss as well. Overall though it is a lot of fun to build a large Roman City. 79/100

I love this game (clearly by the time I've spent playing). I like the way resources are handled. Mainly, I love the properties and abilities which carry over from mission to mission. Basically, as you complete secondary missions, you accrue PERSONAL wealth and experience. The wealth allows you to buy properties which give permanent resource bonuses to every story map you play on.

If you liked the old Sierra city builders, you will probably enjoy this.

I bought this game because years ago I was a fan of the Impressions Games city-building series, particularly Caesar and Pharoah. This game builds on the same premise, with the building of cities in Rome while raising armies to attack and defend. Like Pharoah, it is a blend of city-building simulation and RTS except there is a stronger implementation of the RTS elements here.

Visually, the game looks pretty good. Not the best graphics by modern standards, but bounds above the old Impressions games.

The biggest problem with this game is that it's a lot to learn and take in very quickly. There are some tutorials for that, though. It's not the steepest learning curve, it's nothing compared to some of the Paradox games, but it is a game that requires you take the time to learn it.

To all negative reviews saying that buildings catch on fire too often: learn to play the game. As long as your population has all its needs satisfied, you will never have criminals. I've played the campaign multiple times and never ONCE had a criminal light a building on fire.

I will always go back to this game to loose yet again, to watch my buildings burn to the ground in utter shame. For how ever often I leave this milestone in gaming history, it always pulls be back for more.
Is it the feeling of playing God, or just those wonderful animations of buildings popping up?
The game has a lot of depth and can catch you out if your not quick enough to see a crysis looming up.
I had a pig, grape, weat and somthing else farm going and yet still my buildings were burnt because of food not being varied enough!?
I warmly recommend this game because it grasps hold of those simple human needs and pulls on your emosional strings so well ;-]
Tip Do both tutorials!

Its better than it looks. I got this on a side deal from some game, Warband i guess.. It turned being good, im enjoying it. If you liked old days of caesar city builder, or pharaoh, this is a good game. It have even more history and culture on Rome than Rome 2! Well, TBH Rome 2 is pretty bad and blunt. Anyway, apart from some bad drawings and lack of a proper in game manual/encyclopedia, this game is good.

This is a surprisingly solid game in the out of fashion genre of city builders, most comparable to the Caesar/Pharoah/Emperor series. It's got a weird learning curve since there are a shockingly large variety of different mechanics behind resources but once it's understood it's quite fun. There's a lot of content and a long campaign of reasonably bite sized missions.

If you like city building games set in ancient times, get this one. It seems to be easier compared to other city building games like Caesar but overall, it's a good game. I wish there are more games like this.

I'd buy if you're into this sort of city-building, RTS game. There's nothing particularly impressive about it and the camera controls are a little wonky, but it's entertaining enough. I wouldn't pay full price though.

There is a dual monitor issue the very first time you play the game (it crashes), but it only seems to affect the very first time you run the game. I left the dual monitor on when playing subsequently and haven't had any further issues.

I like this game. Yes, its kind of dated and visuals are way less than todays standards. And, thinking back even when this game came out 4 years ago, the graphics wouldve been pretty poor. But their functional. This game starts out slow as you learn and you wonder if it will get good....and I have to say Its kept me pretty interested. Rome and Greece are my favorite periods for strategy gaming (and ww2 of course). So I can recommend this game for you. Especially at this price.

I like it so far still trying to get the hang of the game but I enjoy it and I think that those strategy demons out there that love a good strategy mixed with a little bit of simulation I think that you will like this game as well as others with the same feel.

Fun all the way through, until eventually the Multiplayer Servers were shut down. I bought this game specifically to challenge myself and my friends into who could build the better town. Sadly, I can no longer do that. However, whilst the game was still Live.. It was super exciting, Quick and actually made me think! There are many ways to build a Town and conquer the rest in the Neighborhood, how will you build?

It's ok, but feels somewhat low budget and very arcady. Gameplay is very rushed (unless you exploit a bug). And I find the music bloody terrible, to the point of it being distracting. I do like the free-style building of towns where the buildings can merge into one another and the roads can be bent to your liking when you place them so you can make a natural-looking place.

If you can stop your citizens from burning down your town in the first 5 minutes of gameplay you're doing well, if you dont have water or food your citizens will burn the entire place down this is the same for entertainment and temples, Only thing i can suggest is to play through the tutorial mission's and it will sort of half show you how to play the game.

The Resource system is very different than other RTS games, its more about income to usage rather than stockpiling goods.

Multiplayer is only possible if you have friends to play with there is no AI in multiplayer maps so coop campaign or coop multiplayer is impossible unless you have 4 friends online, this games community is beyond dead (560 players - none active), also requires a login to play any multiplayer game, does not support lan without logging into their servers.

I do enjoy playing it but the talent system just destroy's multiplayer due to allowing your first units created to be rank 10 after playing through the campaign instead of rank 1 this is persistant through single player and multiplayer.

Coop shared base is impossible without voice communication and its stupidly easy to stagnate your town, getting to the point the only way to win is to not play at all, your citizens go absolutely insane and BURN EVERYTHING to the ground.

Grand ages Rome is your typical city builder.One major problem with the game is that it's so dumbed down many features you would expect of the genre are just missing or done poorly i.e can't modify landscape,city never evolves,can't manipulate citizens,and restrictive building. The campaign will grow repetitive and stale fast.

PROS
-the game looks great and your towns will start to truly look like a a town.
-You can train soldiers and send them off to war.
-you can level up a character but does little to change the overall gameplay.

CONS
-city never evolves
-can't manipulate,or see how see how citiztens feel about the town.
-Building feels very restrictive as you are constrained to certain rules.
-Free build mode missing options like cant turn on/off disasters, no barbarians, or even a world domination mode

Rating: 5.5/10

I played it a while ago and thought it was an interesting if somewhat unforgiving. When I later reinstalled it would not accept my cd-keys. Having issues with installing and reinstalling a game is unacceptable not something I should have to deal with when I buy a game through steam. I would not recommend buying from them again.

According their tech support the only solution is to close steam, run admin (which it should already be doing anyway), and edit the registry.
