Seriously, why should you try this strategy game published by Paradox Interactive? Find out now in this mini-review.
Imperator: Rome Deluxe Edition is a rich content game
Before I tried Imperator: Rome Deluxe Edition I started to read some reviews about it. My God, almost everyone destroyed it. Regardless, I tried this game because I was fascinated by its launch trailer. Yeah, I’ll link it here so you can have a look at it, too.
What was the result after I played? I was quite satisfied. In a nutshell, Imperator: Rome is a simulation game that mixes elements from other video game series. Do you want some examples? The mechanics of state management reminded me of the Europa Universalis system.
You will have to control certain aspects such as tyranny and political power, acting in a manner consistent with your choices. However, if you’ve played Europa Universalis IV, one of the best strategy games ever, you’ll find these gameplay mechanics quite simple.
Moreover, the game’s political interactions reminded me of RPG titles like Crusader Kings. Every character will have a personality. Depending on your interactions, the NPCs will act accordingly, deciding whether to betray you or side with you.
As you can guess, the game is varied. There are several things you will discover during your gameplay. Besides, unlike other games in the genre, there will be few tedious stages.
A gameplay based on land management
Mostly, the gameplay is about land management. Hey, you’re an emperor! You’ll have to control every corner of your empire.
Each conquered territory will be divided into several parts: provinces, regions, and municipal areas. At the head of each province, you will appoint a governor, an influential character that you will have to keep at bay. From time to time, you will have to assert your authority, so that you will avoid divisions in your empire.
Besides, you can decide on various laws to be enacted according to the characteristics of the territory. Sometimes it’ll be hard, I know, but think of all the benefits you’ll get as emperor. Plus, if you want my advice, when possible, in moderation, use brute force. That’s right, even to those who appear to be your allies. Be strong and no one will dare to stand against a demi-god!
Imperator: Rome Deluxe Edition, is it worth buying?
From my point of view, it’s worth playing Imperator: Rome. Of course, I have to be honest, if you have experience with strategy games, maybe you’ll find it slightly easy. Sometimes, the gameplay is all too simple: some phases could be better.
However, this factor is a benefit for those who may not have experience with strategy games and want to try this title. If you’re a “rookie”, you can have fun with a game that’s not too difficult, exciting, and thrilling.
You can find Imperator: Rome in our store. I suggest you buy the Deluxe Edition, available at a special price that will give you a complete experience, you will hardly forget it!
