Roads of Rome II
Be a Road Warrior!
This is such a fun time management game. If you like My Kingdom for the Princess, you'll enjoy this series.
Graphics: Really nice, beautiful.
Music: The music fits with the theme of the game and doesn't intrude on play.
Game Play: You complete tasks such as building helpful structures such as sawmills, gold mines and pig farms; you'll also mine crystals and build roads, among other things. There are two or three main goals in each level and you accomplish them by gaining resources to complete them.
Length: Several hours, especially if you replay a level to get Expert. There are 40 levels and 1 bonus level.
Challenge: Some of the levels are pretty challenging to finish with an Expert rank, but I have completed the game with Expert on all levels and when you do there's a bonus level to play at the end. If you get stuck, there are great tips in the forum on completing the more challenging ones.
Play Again: Yes please!!

Great strategic game..Loved it!
The game has many levels and they all are different in some way. I realised that in each level I'm supposed to use the resources differently and have a different game plan to finish it as expert. Otherwise you can go on playing the same way and finish the game in your lesiure time and enjoy yourself.
I finished all levels once and then started again to achieve expert level in each to play the bonus level.
Loving it.. :-)

Excellent Sequel - Highly Recommended!
This is the sequel to the already brilliant game 'Roads of Rome'. It has many new features & challenges, such as the rope bridges, teleporters, fog that you have to clear by paying certain characters. Very similar gameplay to 'My Kingdom For The Princess' which I think this is a take off of, but I like them both equally as they both have different challenges and features. This game certainly makes you think about what you are doing as the levels get increasingly difficult, which is good for me as some other games I have played have been too easy and I've finished them in a couple of hours.. this one kept me going for week lol.

Gets More Challenging as you Go
This game is one heck of a challenge when attempting to beat required times. The game seems to last forever and I have caught myself spending hours playing this. It is worth the purchase.

Great strategy and time management game
I started this series by playing Roads of Rome III, which has extra features (ie- fires) to conquer to complete each level, and is harder than this game. Since I enjoyed Roads of Rome III so much, I bought this game too, thinking it would be much easier, and up to about 20 levels it is easier but every bit as much fun. I'm now on levels that are just as challenging as Roads of Rome III, and glad I bought the game. It's very well done, each level is just a bit different, adding different challenges. I'd recommend this game to anyone that enjoys strategy and time management games and look forward anxiously to Roads of Rome IV.

LOVE THIS GAME!!!!
I absolutely love this game!!! Like someone else said, it's too short. You have the different options which way you want to play. I like to enjoy & relax playing a game & it has relaxed mode. It was just soooo much fun, I was sad to see it end. No freezing screens or blanking out screens. Great game!!! One of my most favorites!!! It was worth every penny!!!

Replayable--over and over
So fun. All of the Roads of Rome games are fun. For some reason the second in the series is the best for me. Challenging and always fun to play. I've beaten it many times, in expert mode, too, but I always got back to it when I'm tired of my other games. Just challenging enough.

Just as good as the first edition!
Roads of Rome 2 is just as entertaining, challenging and fun and the first edition. I'm not a huge fan of most time management games, but I've found these two to be quite enjoyable and interesting. I find myself thinking about the game when I can't play it - now that's an indication of how addictive it can be! Some levels can be frustrating if you're trying to beat the clock, but it's not required to complete a level before moving on to others. It's possible to come back to those later if desired. Enjoy!
