    I used to love ceaser 3 even though I dislike almost all other city games. If they get the bugs roned out this should be good :D

    I wasn't all that keen on the demo really, not that it wasn't bad, but it just didn't really do anything for me, and I love these kind of games.

    eh? it's called caesar IV... that's caesar #4. because there have been three games before this in the series. the first one was not long after doom if i remember right. that makes it anything but a new genre.

    Yes, but theres not been one for a very long time, you could've called this a dead genre, but recently theres been a ton of games released.

    Being playing since friday, must admit to bveing a bit underwhelmed. Tilted windmills earlier Children of the Nile was better imo, scrolling & zoom were better, with more gameplay.

    I've played it for a few hours, its definetly better then the 2 other Roman City builders that just came out, but still does not fully live up to my expectations.

    Caesar 3 I remember playing for hours through the night building up my huge 2D city, never got boring.

    The default settings are strange have played with them now camera view is great, same as children of nile (which is good by default). Have played a bit more & am now fairly happy, must admit to preferring the big sprawling scenarios rather than the 1's with the small cramped playing area, which are more like doing a jigsaw.

    Glory of the Roman Empire is better graphics & has a bigger, more flexible playing area, feels more 3d than C4 at default camera.

    Was Ryan drunk when wrote this article?

    Eh?

    A new genre that is more than 8 years old?

    My apologies - I described it as a new genre because in recent months a whole host of games have been released that are all very similar. Whereas before there was just Caesar III.

    When there was only one game that was about ancient city building I don't think it warranted being called a genre, but now ancient city building games are definitely a genre.

    It was a tad confusing though! Apologies.

    Lol :D Just like buses, none 4 ages then they all come at once.

    Have had a real good blast at this tonight & it's a slow burner, played the cordoba scenario & just finished city walls( not needed but nice 2 have :D ), but came within a whisker of being chased out of town, 4 not supplying weapons. Very good. :D
