Hello, I decided to start a thread for a new game that is about to be released called Imperator: Rome. The game looks quite cool and I will probably buy it eventually (I am too cautious to buy games pre-release or at release) if it ends up playing as well as it looks. The game allows one to play as the Roman Republic, the Hellenistic nations, Carthage and the various barbarian tribes. I think that the aspects of the game that are the most promising are the governmental system and the incredibly detailed map. The map is divided into numerous provinces which are then subdivided into cities, each city has its own resources which it can import and export to other cities. There are many governments your nation can choose from, which give your nation certain bonuses and give you as the leader differing degrees of centralized control. There are six rankings for every country in the game from a horde of immigrants, to a city-state, and then local, regional, major and finally great powers. So, hopefully the game is good, if you get the game then post on this thread what you think of it. If it is reviewed well then I will buy it this summer.
