What Gamespot Users have to say about Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile

  • Rating:6

    A promising, fun-at-time yet eventually a disappointing game.

    Children of the Nile offers a very improved overview of Egypt, graphic-wise, but fails at game play. Up to 2004 there was no game set in Egypt that was 3D, that was the big kick of Children of the Nile, sadly that was ab... Read Full Review

    Long story short, the game lacks the flavor, and it's simply too complicated in places where it shouldn't be.

    Being a fan of Sierra's city-builders, I was excited to hear about the new installment in the series, even though I have heard about the innovations that were introduced. Long story short, the game lacks the flavor, th... Read Full Review

    Nice strategy

    Immortal Cities:Children of the Nile reminds more like Tropic(o) than a Pharaoh. Every campaign has its own primary assignment with secondary. Economy in this game lies on a few levels such as; you must build temples f... Read Full Review

    Great time waster... especially waiting for Ceaser III

    This game is just like the Ceaser games. It has some interesting features that set it apart. There's not much else to add, except that this game has one fatal flaw: there is no way to speed up time. That makes most m... Read Full Review

    A good city-building game.

    *POSSIBLE SPOILER* This is a good game centered around Egypt. It's not as addictive as some but still remains a good and fun city-building game without a doubt. Controlling an egyptian city can be exciting. Being a phar... Read Full Review

    A good city-building game, but can be frustrating

    This game is a very good city-builder, with loads of buildings to choose from and various people classes. The game is the first to use the system of people being your currency, not money, and it works quite well. You don... Read Full Review
