I've always wanted to play Rome, but I just can't bring myself to do so. They've got several things working against them. First, Domination is my least preferred victory condition. Sure, I roll with a war-leaning Civ and conquer the world from time to time, but I prefer building my own empire up over tearing others down. I suppose it's my Sim City roots that have me inclined towards peaceful playthroughs. Second, since I got into the game four years after release, Rome's UA looks very dated at this point. Next to Civs like Polynesia, Brazil, and the like To the Glory of Rome just looks bland by comparison. A production bonus in non-capital cities is useful, no doubt, but it's not very exciting. All that being said, I'm trying to talk myself into a Roman Cultural Victory playthrough. To the Glory of Rome would help build cultural buildings faster, that's the extent of the benefit playing Rome culturally affords. It's not much, so I'm on the fence. If any of you have tried such an approach to Rome, I'd love to get your feedback on the subject. Thanks.
