    Best Roman City Building game to date.

    Rated on July 04, 2012 by Jason210

    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: Ro...

    Best Strategy Game I've Played!!!

    Rated on April 08, 2009 by xaminme

    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...

    An Abomination: glitchy, Bad graphics, terrible mess of a game.

    Rated on March 23, 2009 by irelevent

    I feel terrible right now, after just playing about 2 hours straight of Grand Ages: Rome. I honestly want to kill the makers of this game. Ok we have to start somewhere, so how about the good stuff...
