"Fun at first, then pointless"2.0 starson by sanenazok
Pros: Immersive Graphics
Cons: Gameplay- a biggie
Summary: It's been a few years since I played Caesar III but I had fairly good memories of the game. Reading reviews of this, I figured it would be a good follow up and it's not. The graphics are quite nice, but that doesn't make up for the weakness of the gameplay. Compared with Caesar III, everything in this game is worse. The biggest joke is the combat - it's just plain awful. While I finished the entire campaign, the combat missions were the pits. Most hilarious is combat that takes place on the region map- it can be summarized as "right click, right click" done. While in cities, the combat is also aggravating - some enemies sneak off and start destroying buildings, etc. Other gameplay elements are also aggravating, like warehouses that fill stupidly and house members that refuse to cross the street to pick up needed supplies.
In the end the game felt like homework and I'm glad I'm done with it.
