    Best Roman City Building game to date.

    This game has been criticised for being just another, average city builder game, offering nothing new when compared to earlier efforts such as CivCity: Rome or Imperium Romanum. I think Grand Ages: Rome is easily the bes... Read Full Review

    Best Strategy Game I've Played!!!

    I think that Grand Ages Rome is sweet. The story-line is good and pulls you into the game in a really well done manner. I am into the military levels more than the city building. The best thing about this game is how cl... Read Full Review

    Just an overall fun game that takes over your weekend.

    Grand Ages: Rome is one of the better Rome city building games out there. For those of you that have no clue what you do in this game, I will explain. Like most other city building games out there, your main goal is the ... Read Full Review
