The Roman civilization became the world's largest empire of Antiquity. It created a powerful network of roads, had a highly developed engineering and gave rise to an impressive artistic era.
Now Imperium Romanum enables you to live the glorious days of the Roman Empire as if you were right there. This real-time strategy game challenges you to build your own portion of Roman civilization by creating a Roman settlement and turning it into a powerful, influential capital city.
Just like other similar titles, there are several elements that must be taken care of in Imperium Romanum: creating buildings, gathering and managing resources and defending your village from enemy troops. In this sense, although the game is not difficult to play by itself, it does require concentration and care for the detail.
Talking about detail, the game's graphics are rendered with an amazing realism, especially as regards landscapes and nature effects such as the day/night transition or weather. Characters are a bit more simplistic though. Unfortunately I can't say a word about music, simply because there was no music at all. Yes, I checked system volume settings and the game inner settings too, but sorry, no music for me.
As for gameplay, Imperium Romanum is fun to play (as long as you like classic strategy titles) because you not only have one general mission, but also smaller tasks (the so called "tablets") that provide you with new challenges and also guide you through the story.
Imperium Romanum is the classic real-time strategy title that lets you take part in the building of one of the most important civilizations of old times.
