Have to say this game isn't really bad, I Hvae enjoyed the campaign quite a bit but after 21 mission it really started to get boring, it was the same thing over again, build city achieve this goal, with bonus missions that will pressure you or limit you. The combat in this game is okish for what it is, as you won't see much of it. I would compared this game with am Anno game 75% is i city managment 20% in economics and 5% combat. But in the end if you want to create the perfet Roman city this game will definatly be up you alley.

Good Points
-Long campaign
-Can be challenging
-Good City mangament system
-Ok Combat
-Decent Economy
Bad Points
-Become Very Repetitive

Final Score 7/10

Vamos a ver, no voy a entrar en la jugabilidad y demás por que para eso tenéis un millón de análisis. En resumen es un city-builder, con algunas particularidades (pocas) interesantes.

Vamos a hablar de su historia, y no, no es un sopiler porque ocurrió hace 2100 años. Somos un chaval perteneciente a una familia importante de Roma, a menos que escojamos pertencer a la gens Lucia, porque adivina qué: Lucio es un praenomen, no un nomen, por tanto no es el nombre de una familia.

Diferentes personajes de la época, de la talla de Cicerón, Craso, Pompeyo o César nos encargan que les ayudemos gobernando ciudades de la república romana o fudando nuevas colonias. Aquí viene lo horrible de este juego: Se pasa por el forro absolutamente todos los procesos necesarios para elegir magistrados o fundar colonias. En un primer momento, antes de tener ningún tipo de cargo siquiera nos mandan fundar una colonia, a nosotros, un chaval salido de ninguna parte que coge, se larga a la isla de Cabrera y funda una colonia con su propio dinero. No voy a entrar aquí a describir todo el proceso, pero desde luego es mas complejo que "sobornar a unos cuantos senadores", como se nos dice en el juego. Más que nada porque ni siquiera es el senado quien se encarga de esos temas.

Dentro de lo que es gobernar cada ciudad, obvian por completo a las instituciones locales, como pudiesen ser los senados o las distintas magistraturas de las ciudades. Esto es grave porque una ciudad sin política no es una ciudad y menos aún en esta época. Y ya que comento lo de la ciudad. Que ciudadanía tiene la gente que vive en nuestras ciudades (y si, digo "nuestras" porque parece que sean propiedad privada nuestra). ¿Son Romanos?, ¿son peregrinos? ¿son latinos? ni idea, pero qué más da, saltémonos ese ínfimo detalle que provocó varias guerras civiles en Italia y que apenas fue determinante en la expansión romana.

Lo más grave es que parece que el juego disfruta de sus errores e incorrecciones, porque hacen mucho hincapié en no diferenciar en absoluto ciudades, de colonias, de campamentos militares. Así como se empeña en negar la existencia de las distintas ciudadanías y de la vida política. Para este juego, "romanizar" consiste en construir edificios caros, muy altos y con muchas columnas.

Lo peor es que este tipo de juego tiene potencial, permitiría ver los conflictos sociales de forma muy clara, con muchísimo detalle y centrándose es los mecanismos que hacen funcionar de verdad una ciudad en el mundo romano. Además, si en lugar de centrarse en abrirlo a todo el imperio hubiesen decidido tirar por una vía más históricamente correcta, su trama ganaría en riqueza. No se vosotros, pero a mi me ha resultado totalmente indiferente mi personaje.

Si quieres un juego que consista en poner muchos edificios juntos y evitar que se caigan utilizando medidas autocráticas, este es entretenido. Si buscas un juego en el que debas construir ciudades de época romana... Yo también.

Absolutely LOVE this game! 10/10

This game seems to be the last in the line of realistic ancient city builders (there have been none since)
- Grand Ages Medieval is a stain on the Grand Ages name and is not a city builder nor set in ancient times.

First up, game runs amazing on Ultra graphics on Windows 10 (if you were unsure it it would run)
- Excellent level of detail, allows you to build beautiful Roman cities, the economy of the game works similar to anno games, I recently spent over 12 hours non stop on the most spectacular city.

If you love history and appreciate the advancements and might that was the Roman Republic/Empire, then you will love this game in all it's detail!

Grand Ages: Rome is one of a very few city building games that satisfies the player's desire to SEE how awesome their work was. This game might have been released some time ago now (2009), but the level of detail is very satisfying. Zooming right down into your city center and watching the hustle and bustle of a Roman city feels -so- good. Very few city builders give you this feeling, with games like SimCity almost reaching the same feeling but falling a little bit short. I also appreciate the accuracy of Roman architecture and culture that this game has. GA:R is designed in such a way that cities the player builds don't look like a player-built city; putting a few hours into a level can make it look like a dev-designed city! As someone who values immersion and depth of detail more than anything in strategy games, GR:A has a special place in my heart for the visual appeal.

One thing I gripe about, though; the size of levels/plots are somewhat small. Upon purchasing and booting the game up, I was expecting something pseudo-open world, or even something where cities are connected in some way (I.E SimCity 2014, where city plots are pretty close together and connected via highways, trade, airports etc.), but unfortunately every plot is an individual gamestate. The military side of the game is also very limited - I feel that the advertisement point of "build massive armies" is a large overstatement. On some plots/levels, there is no actual point to building military structures and units. I'd love it if there were factions in this game that you partook in actual diplomacy with, but this game doesn't use these systems at all. It's entirely about loading up a city plot and building - a sandbox with objectives, if you will.

Pros:

-Amazing visual dazzle and grandure

-Respects and keeps to the Rome of classical times

-Very liberating in terms of customisation and building

-Decent military aspect, but limited

-Good use of resource management/trade

Cons:

-Closed off game world

-Lack of open-world grandure

8/10. Right up there with Anno City-Builders!

I thought it would be better Imperium Romanum Gold Edition, but I am wrong.
the graphic is good, but the others aspects are poor than Imperium Romanum.
There are many types of military units you can recruit, but all you need are a few elite unit, just train them to a level higher than barbarian, as barbarian cannot level up, then you can defeat in defend and gain further level up. then you can use one squad to win 3 barbarian units.
Now you can conquest the village instead of just burn them down, but the resource gain from them are negligible
The UI is very poor,

I can see the door direction in Imperium Romanum, but it gone in Grand Ages: Rome.
The building panel is laggy.
The when you build a road, the system will help you auto connect two ends, but the fact is that it often can't connect due to angle, the road is too short, slope.
I cannot select and see my citizen which can in Imperium Romanum.

There are 2 improvement that I admire.
1. you can finally ask slaves to work instead of just doing "logistic"
2. You can upgrade food and production building so you don't need to expand your city too large which is easier to maintain a small city than a large one

If you like this type of game, go buy Imperium Romanum Gold Edition.

Good city management game similar to games some of you might have played as kids such as Caesar 3.

The game comes with 2 campaigns of decent length and multiplayer which is dead but you can still play with a friend.

The construction and mantaining of the city is actually very simple in this game. So simple that hardcore fanatics of the genre might actually be turned off. However it is still fun. Combat is also present in the game but it is also pretty shallow. Basically right click and who has the bigger army wins.

That being said if you looking for an easier game in the genre this is definitely that.

Brilliant little city builder with plenty of missions and combat elements while being rather beautiful to boot.

If you don't want to strive for building perfect layouts the game lets you just focus on the missions, though those who do are rewarded adequately for their hard work.

Big Pros:
It's quick to jump in and out of because you're not weighed down by needless micromanagement. Has quite a few missions and side objectives (especially with addons) which are replayable. You can level up your personal profile for perks to aid you in said missions. City layout is completely customiseable and if you're not a big fan of fighting it won't weigh you down either.

Big Cons:
Lack of micromanagement and resource allocation might put off players looking for complicated game to play. Some maps are repeated in missions and have limited space. Combat is limited too. The only real challenge once you defeat enemy AI is your own mistakes during city building or achieving / racing the clock on objectives.

Very fun city building game with limited military aspects.
You spend most of your time building your city and managing resources and needs. Every building consumes and produces resources and they work off of each other. Houses require certain services to be near them depending on the class of the citizens. There is also trading and crime and popularity and all that stuff to manage.
If you are patient the combat is easy because you can build up your military and then just crush all the barbarians on the map. You can also draw the enemies to your towers and watch them die to hails of arrows. The only stressful missions are when the enemies assault your town, but it's easy enough to deal with it with good defenses. Overall the military part of the game is very simple as there aren't a lot of commands you can give your men and positioning hardly matters. The real fun is city designing.

On a technical level the game is very nicely designed. Graphics look nice, and once your town gets going you can zoom down into the city and watch your little citizens walking to work or the store, fights happening at the arena, people preaching at the temple, etc. The downside is I have had the game crash and even freeze my computer sometimes (it is an old PC though).

I'd like to point something out if you buy this: I have come across a lot of people on the internet complaining that their buildings constantly catch fire and they can't do anything. This happens because of crime or buildings being left unattended.
To stop general deterioration make sure every workplace has employees.
To stop crime you just need to keep all of your citizens satisfied by planning your town correctly. The classes have different needs and you need to lay everything out for them before making houses.

-Plebians need water, food, and jobs.
-Equites need water, food, entertainment, and jobs.
-Patricians need water, food, entertainment, religion, olive oil, clothes, and jobs. (olive oil and cloth is taken from your resource store; you dont need the production nearby)

Some of these needs require of chain of production, so just plan ahead of time.
Do this right and you will have zero fires.

If you've played Caesar III and the other series, Zeus, and Pharaoh/Cleopatra then you'll likely enjoy Grand Ages Rome. Just like these games, you'll have to build housing, aquaducts, entertainment, and other sorts of buildings to make the people happy. The only difference is that Grand Ages ditched the roads and replaced them with a radius. Instead of trying to fit a whole bunch of public and private structures on one long stretch of road, you'll be allocating all sorts of buildings in strategic areas to maximize their effects. Since Caesar IV cannot be acquire via through PC digitial download/i.e without a CD disk, then Grand Ages is the alternative.

NOT COMPATIABLE WITH DUAL MONITORS OR WIN7 AND BEYOND!

When I first ran this game all I got was a black screen. After checking the forums I got this game to sort of run.

You can only play in windowed mode. Once you move the game window or click outside of it or anything like that, you can't scroll sideways in the game anymore unless you exit the game. ALT-ENTER doesn't work and you can't run it with the window covering the whole screen, since then you can't see the selections at the bottom and if you move the window, then scrolling becomes an issue.

My 2 hours of fame is trying to get thru the slightly broken tutorial twice. Second time I figured out how to get past building the trade post.

Thankfully I got it in a bundle.

Sin llegar a alcanzar los clásicos city-builders históricos de Sierra, se mantiene como una opción viable y divertida del género, que es más de lo que se puede decir de los que fueran sus competidores directos CivCity: Rome y Caesar IV. A destacar su interfaz y el gran tamaño de los mapas, que dota de importancia a la gestión de varios asentamientos, la comunicación naval y al factor militar.

Probablemente una muy buena opción para iniciarse en este típo de juegos.

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.

7.5/10

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 have played this game ever since it came out,my steam playing time doesn't seem like it,I honestly had this game from a non-steam retail for a long time,but here I am now
This game has a quite impressive graphic in its time,although its nothing compare to nowaday's games,but I have to say its gameplay feature might surpass most of these days's city building game.Some might think this game is an amazing RTS to be games,like the big guy series such as Total War,and then end up disappointing because they can't keep their city building from burning the first few minutes of gameplay and few enemies around.To all complainer,learn how to play this game properly! This is a city building,not RTS.
The game is hard for beginner,it has strategy element,but it doesn't have much to do with military aspect of this game.The strategy I'm talking about here is city planning.Beginner who has their trouble with building large city might need to consider this,its not a base building game,so they can't just place block of building all they want and expect the city itself can adjust to what they want.And they end up having building being burned down by high criminal rate because of poor management.
It takes city planning to makes the best city out of the base resources you have,the game is all about management,so anyone who gave a bad review about this game because of themselves failing to take a city challenge and start blaming it on the developer,they need to learn how to play.
Multiplayer is pretty much dead,so I can't argue with bad reviewer about this one,I myself also has issue with Multiplayer.First off,city building game is a time consuming game,but there is no multiplayer save feature,everyone end up having to play over just because their connection is unstable or the game might somehow crashed during the match.Secondly,the base server of this game seem unstable,I can't keep a match long enough that can decide the winner just because of network issue.
Other than that,this is a pretty good game.

I started playing this game again recently, and discovered how fun the Campaigns are to play. Previously I had only used the Free Build mode.

The Good
Campaign System
The campaign is simple. It has a simple reward system which gives you money and talents at the end of each task, which you can then use to buy estates or upgrade your city building skills, giving you resource advantges before you move on to the next task. Quite a simple mechanic, but one which adds just enough interest to make the game long lasting fun, and which fits in well with the overall gamepaly.

Gameplay
Grand Ages Rome has a nice balance between complexity and easy of play. It is in some ways similar to Anno 1404, the main difference being the campaign system and the fact that production buildings in Grand Ages can only be placed where there is an appropriate natural resource. This latter difference makes it a bit more challenging than the Anno series, in my opinion.

There is an overlay system that allows you to see the state of the city's satisification with regard to food, entertainment and religion, so you can see at once the effect of placing a building in a particular area. The buildings have a simple upgrade system that depends on your level of research. There is also a simple trade system allows trading with a choice of towns trading at different prices. The simplicty of this system fits the gameplay perfectly.

While it is quite easy to create a small settlements in a peaceful area, creating and maintaining one that is periodically attacked by barbarians offers a greater challenge. Fighting is simple, but again, I think it has the right balance in the overall gameplay. You can recruit units from certain segments of the population, and build training and upgrade centres for them. Oh, and it has walls too. The upcoming Grand Ages: Medieval, doesn't. In fact this is one of the things that has prompted me to write this review. Walls are good! We need walls in games like these. Rome also has towers with slits in them that automatically fire arrows at attackers. I love this feature although it is easy to abuse if you need to repel an attacking army.

Graphics
One thing I really like about Grand Ages: Rome are the stunning graphics. Even in 2015, the graphics still look good when the settings are cranked up. The Roman architecture is accurately done and looks beautiful close up, with astonishing attention to detail. The camera has this nice feature that allows you to zoom in to street level and get an impression of what the city looks like if you are actually a citizen living in it, allowing full movement through the city. This is another difference to Anno 1404's postcard view. The way the city comes alive with perfectly animated little figures is also very well done. From a distance, your city really does look like a Roman city, and you can't help but take screenshots of it.

The Not so Good...
I'm very positive to this game but there are a few areas that could have been done better...

Camera Controls
As I already mentioned, I love the fact that you can zoom into to street level and see things from a citizen's point of view, but the camera controls are clunky. Also, zooming right out switches to a static 3D map view which gives an overview of the area you are building in. However, it is not possible to do anything when in this zoomed out mode. I think the game could have benefitted from having camera controls that are similar to the classic Total War series.

Research
One thing I think was too easy was carrying out research. All it requires is a school and a simple house for teachers to live in, both of which you can build early on in a game. Libraries and Philosophers Academies aren't necessary, as they offer only the same research possibilities as schools. Why not have the more advanced buildings that offer new and different research possibilities, as in the C&C games?

Conclusion: Grand Ages: Rome is a good solid city building game that looks stunning, and I'm sure you will enjoy it all the more if you have an interest in Ancient Rome. In fact I'd say that it's the best Roman city building game there is.

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.

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!

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.
