Positive Comment(s)

The interaction between the buildings could definitely be a little more complicated but the challenges of fitting everything together is more than sufficient to keep you coming back for more.82IGN
A wonderfully engaging game; striking in its ease of use and rewarding in terms of depth. [Sept 2006, p.64]81PC Zone UK

Negative Comment(s)

It becomes especially maddening when you’re trying to navigate a heavily developed city where one errant mouse click can banish an otherwise productive structure to the ether.50GamePro
Though this is a nice city building game it lacks enough to make it stand out from the crowd from other city builders, especially from other ancient city building games.75Next Level Gaming
Probably one of the most unimaginative titles branded with the Civilization name.50PALGN
Recreates “Caesar III” with nicer graphics and smooth gameplay. Unfortunately, after a few scenarios the game starts to repeat itself and lacks enough new things to do. [Sept 2006]75Pelit (Finland)
No wonder the actual Romans threw up walls. [Nov. 2006, p.74]50Computer Games Magazine
While there is an addictive quality to the game, the bugs and bizarre behavior of your citizens can sometimes pull the game into the realm of frustration instead of enjoyment.73GamingTrend
What is surprising is the lack of creativity, integrity, or even quality regarding practically every aspect of the game. The only saving grace is the authenticity of Rome.40GamerFeed
An overly structured Campaign mode, and a directionless sandbox experience, help to bog the game down with bland gameplay and future of (dare we suggest) possible mediocrity.70Total Video Games
Genuinely offers something new to a genre whose form is now long established. [Sept 2006, p.110]70games(TM)
It’s really more of a city builder than a Civilization game, though. You can research technologies to unlock new buildings, but it stays in one era (of course), and it has wonders you may build – 7/1070IamNader
