He is known as a particularly critical reviewer. A few
of his impressions from his Fall of Rome review are shown first, below:
Fall of Rome is hands-down one of the top-rated online strategy games to emerge in many a year. Itís incredibly rich, colorful, and nuanced; addictive as crank, and designed with a care and attention to detail that is rare in any gaming genre.
I trust that what I have described, though, is sufficient to give you a solid overview of how robust and finely detailed Fall of Rome truly is, both in its political-economic-diplomatic structure and in its blood-and-thunder combat elements.
Just as the political/diplomatic model in Fall of Rome is one of surprising sophistication, the military structuring in this online war game is detailed enough to please all but the pickiest grognard.
The game takes a quantum leap in vigor, complexity, and sheer skull-duggery as, one by one, the contending kings consolidate their rule over their starting regions.
So, clearly, the optimum route to victory is a dual path comprising diplomacy and political skills on the one hand, and the threat or actual deployment of first-rate troops on the other. Silver-tongued diplomats and grizzled Centurions are your two major assets.
In sum, I give Fall of Rome my heartiest recommendation; it really is Something Special.
