Quoted from CivCity: Rome Reviews:
Check out these quotes from CivCity: Rome reviews & previews
"If you’re a die-hard fan of the city building genre, it’s likely you’ll find a few solid hours worth of gameplay in CivCity: Rome."
"Like a good tribute band, Firefly's Caesar clone hits the right notes but can't quite capture the original."
"CivCity: Rome is full of moments like that, which you must keep in check while you’re also making sure technology is sufficiently researched. And if you don’t, then you don’t collect enough in taxes and suddenly you can’t build. And because you can’t build, your population reaches an unnatural plateau and suddenly fate is conspiring against you while your city turns into an ancient ghost town."
"CivCity: Rome is certainly an enjoyable and challenging city building game but it hardly lives up to the promise and potential that comes with the title. As far as the association with Civilization goes, it seems that Firefly's game is more in touch with the marketing potential of the brand than with the mechanics of play. The few concepts that have been incorporated into the new format definitely work well but I definitely wish more had been done."
