    Where's the real Caesar?

    Tilted Mill does a good job in keeping with the same feel of previous Caesar's and revamping it to the point where it still feels new...but that's about it. I'm a big Caesar fan but I was a little disappointed in this r... Read Full Review

    Awesome game! Well until you get deeper in and realize how flawed the core gameplay is...

    My roomate and I both installed this game simultaneously, and for about a week we had great fun playing this and comparing our cities. Then, we stopped playing and have never gone back to it once. While this game can b... Read Full Review

    I came, I saw, I wasted way too much time trying to get all the insulas and villas to evolve to their third level.

    This game is good. Think that's the most fair and unbiased thing we can say about it. We like the game, it appeals to that OCD city building and planning department director inside us. We dig the Roman thing, really dig ... Read Full Review

    I installed, I played, I liked.

    So recently I've been playing quite a bit of Caesar 4. It was released late last year but I was hesitant to pick up, since other titles were far more alluring. So with the drought of strategy games out at the moment I de... Read Full Review

    The old games, just jazzed up

    Caesar IV really blew my mind in terms of Graphics. The Gameplay is pretty much exactly the same from number 3. So The Learning time isn't really all that much. I love the fact that you can change the camera angle ANY... Read Full Review

    One of, if not the best city builder among not too many competitors!

    Let me start off by saying that GameSpot and almost any other review site has something against city builders. Seriously. This is the best city builder there is, yet they rate it at a 7.7. A mere good! Ugh, I wish they'd... Read Full Review
