And here we have the full cycle... I remember very well. I had bought Pax Romana when it was released: 2003 or 2004? If I am not mistaken the guys who made it later became AGEOD. The game was er... rather mediocre and full of bugs. I was rather angry, and not without a reason.
Now the same guys, with a lot of more experience (first class games behind their back) and an evident love, passion for history, go back to the very beginnings and incredibly surpass that first Pax Romana game. I have even noticed that they have used things from the PR game (in AJE that is). Sounds, icons, etc.
A must have if you love Roman history! And be sure of this: made by guys who ACTUALLY know history
If anything, I want the expansion pack now: Punic Wars, and I would love to see the not so famous -but perhaps much harder and dangerous- struggle for the supremacy of the Italian Peninsule: Samnites, Latins, Etruscans and then the Greeks of Magna Grecia! I'm lying! I wanted it yesterday!
Hell, I would love to start a game with Rome only covering some hills (not even the seven)
What I said, what a formidable full cycle!
A more than happy customer
This is on my list. But I'm still hoping from one that goes from Augustus to Romulus Augustulus.
