Engage in grand-scale city building and create magnificent cities with creativity and control like never before. Intuitive controls make it easy to launch bone-crushing combat missions and manage every aspect of your thriving civilization.
After decades in exile, your family name has been all but forgotten in Rome. But, the departure of the tyrant Sulla has changed everything, and Rome stands on the brink of a new era. Sides must be chosen as Caesar and Pompey battle for control of the Republic. The stage is set for you to gain power and influence over one of the greatest civilizations in history.

Grand Ages: Rome reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
It looks like the stronghold in less good, the archers who destroy the walls of stones, no fog of war... In short to play alone eventually.

GAR is a classic Construction Strategy Game like the Age of Empire series once only newer and Plays in the Roman era who likes such Aubbigeal Games or Construction Simulations is quite well served here
Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
This Game is an absolute Buy recommendation. Construction Strategy with a small Military Part and a very long Battle That Motivates up to the end. As Well As a Role-playing Part where you can expand your Character.

THANKS STEAM. THE GAME IS SUPER INTERESTING BUT THE TUTORIALS MINIMALISTIC. BY CONS STEAM COULD HAVE MADE THE EFFORT TO ATTACH TO THE GAME A LEAFLET IN FRENCH TO SEIZE THE SUBTILITES OF THE DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF THE MISSIONS. DAMAGE YOU LOSE POINTS AND THIS DAY AFTER DAY WITH VERSIONS NOTICES IN ENGLISH OR GERMAN FOR GAMES PROPOSED IN FRANCE AND WHICH AT THEIR RELEASE OFFERED THE NOTICES IN FRENCH.

First impressions the first few hours were sometimes easy, sometimes difficult. You have to learn the mechanics of the game to better use it. After fifteen hours of play, I have not yet understood everything but I can compensate my lack of experience (of the game and in the game also) by restarting the games already played. I can't help but think that it is a "Tropico 3" modeled on the Roman Empire. Also, I eagerly await a "Grand ages: Rome 2" by the next few years (2016?), while crossing the fingers so that the Publisher does not abuse DLC as with "Tropico 4" and "Tropico 5". In this case, here you have the basic game "Grand ages: Rome" and an extension "Grand ages: Rome-reign of Augustus" for less than 10 euros (choose the bundle "Grand ages: Rome GOLD"). That's a good point. In short, you have a complete game without having to wait and repay €2.99 each month to have an extra mission that should have been sold included with the basic game... Overall rating 13/20 bug encountered campaign: crossing the Rhine. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?ID=479300180 1) here the AI is totally amorphous and challengeable only with my special capacity which takes 45s to recharge. Unable to win the game in less than 25 min (secondary quest). I put 1 hour in total, time to degummer all the units buggy with the special capacity of my hastati. 2) it happened after an earthquake. 3) one of the two bridges on the map is simply unbridgeable since the beginning of the game. Not the possibility of building a shipyard to cross by boat.
