Sure you have to make sure you get some religion early by way of SH/religious CS/Natural Wonder/Good pantheon if it's going, but their UA is arguably the most adaptable and versatile going - not built for a 'I'm going domination with keshiks whatever' type game, more a 'I'm going to start a random game and see what I can make of it' game. Plus Dromons are great, and mean that the upgrade to frigates get logistics earlier, which makes them beasts. Cataphract can also be powerful in certain situations. Downgrade is France. They aren't bad, they're just plain boring. Even the UU's are pretty standard melee line and just do not excite me, even though they are fairly strong.
