Developer: Paradox Development Studio

Publisher: Paradox Interactive

Genres: Simulation, Strategy

Alexander. Hannibal. Caesar. These great men and dozens like them shaped the destiny of a continent. Mighty kings, clever generals and would-be gods made their mark on the ancient Mediterranean. Around this sea, close knit nations tested their mettle and virtue against each other in fierce combat, their cultural and political legacy now inseparable from what we understand as Western Civilization. But nothing was guaranteed. Can you change the course of history in Imperator: Rome? Imperator: Rome is the newest grand strategy title from Paradox Development Studio. Set in the tumultuous centuries from Alexander’s Successor Empires in the East to the foundation of the Roman Empire, Imperator: Rome invites you to relive the pageantry and challenges of empire building in the classical era. Manage your population, keep an eye out for treachery, and keep faith with your gods. FEATURES: A living world of characters with varying skills and traits that will change over time. They will lead your nation, govern your provinces and command your armies and fleets. We also introduce our new, more human-like character art. Citizens, freemen, tribesmen and slaves - each population with its own culture and religion. Whether they fill your armies, fill your coffers or fill your colonies, keep an eye on their happiness - your success depends on their satisfaction. Choose your approach before battle to counter the stratagems of your foes. Each culture has a unique way of waging war. Romans and Celts have different options available to them. Unlock unique bonuses, abilities and units. Manage the senate in a Republic, hold your court together in a monarchy, answer to the clans in a tribal system. Migrating barbarians may sack or settle your best land, while disloyal governors or generals can turn against you - taking their armies with them! Goods provide bonuses to their home province. Will you take advantage of stockpiles for local strength or trade excess goods to spread the wealth around? Invest in buildings, roads and defences to make your kingdom stronger and richer.

The systems run as deep as ever in Paradox's latest effort, though the personality isn't quite there.

Huge, inventive and the reason I'm sleep deprived. It's brilliant.

8 / 10.0

Imperator: Rome packs more interesting strategic systems and detail into its vast historical sandbox simulation than its interface can fully handle, but they produce some excellent political scheming and warfare.

Imperator: Rome is grand strategy on a modest scale.
