Honest Gamers: "Is this a strategy? Is this a city builder? I'd say the latter and only opt for a purchase if you like seeing settlements blossom into beacons of a sophisticated society, not harbour an overly aggressive horde. Imperium Ronanum manages to do what it does very well, but unfortunately there's no real market for this kind of historical venture at the moment. Guys, Glory... may have been great, but releasing a snazzy sequel set in the same period with a few adjustments simply won't be that big of an improvement to a lot of gamers. Hell, this game could have had splendid graphics, great sound and a combat system to rival Total War but it would still be restrained by the lack of creativity due to the samey setting."
