Roads of Rome II
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!

Roads of Rome II
Fun and challenging. Addicted to achieving a better score.

I don't think it was "operator error" (meaning me) but I turned the volume way up and there was no sound which made it so boring I kept nodding off. The basis was the same as Road I. I believe it would be good for any level especially a beginner. I usually don't like these types of games but came across one I fell in love with so when I come across them again I will give it a try. Eventually I will probably get this as a freebie as I am definitely getting Roads I and am off to give Roads III a try. Even the video in Roads II had music so I don't know what gives. I need the voice overs in games and at least music in these types of games or I'll just sleep. Glam-ma rates this a disappointment.

It's a snoozefest.
I love time management games. I love strategy games. I love Greco-Roman themed games. I read other reviews before buying Roads of Rome II and thought it was my kind of game, so I bought it instead of downloading a trial first.
I found this game to be incredibly boring, and I got no entertainment out of playing it. At all. Visually, the game is nothing impressive. The game is a joke when it comes to casual gameplay, and there's no storyline. This game had nothing to offer to me.
That's not to say that nobody else could enjoy this game... Obviously, many people have. I think this game would suit a very casual gamer. If you like Angry Birds, this is probably your type of game. If you're into more challenging strategy/time management games like Diner Dash, you probably won't want to mess with this.
The best advice I have: play the trial before you buy it... but you already knew that, didn't you?

For some reason this little fun pass time reminds me of the old school lemming games. That being said the comparison ends here. Amusing and challenging. By each passing level the difficulty is upped.
Use the resources at hand to the best of your abilities and you can get all objects.....maybe ^
The limited time only adds to the fun

If you only want to buy one Roads of Rome...
All three games were a lot of fun. Roads of Rome was really nice and fun, but I felt a bit slow paced. Roads of Rome II was my favorite - more features, a bit faster paced, and if you purchase just one, start with this one, but if you plan to get all three then play them in order. Roads of Rome III - I ended up always using the fast boots capability almost constantly because otherwise the game drug out and was boring. Roads of Rome 1 & 2 you build the city and the roads. Roads of Rome 3 you repair the city and roads once the barbarians have destroyed it. Thus in #3 you're putting out a lot of fires. However, that didn't bother me as some reviewers cautioned, and it can be fun figuring out which fire to put out first. All three games are capable of being conquered, but with #3 I had to replay more levels than in #2 in order to unlock the bonus levels ... #1 doesn't have bonus levels. #1 has a mini-game as the last level in each of the four 'episodes, which I didn't care for. It is a lot of clicking on color groups as they feed from the bottom - and you don't want any column to reach the top. I could have done without that. Also in #1&2 the 'fast feet' appear randomly. In #3 you build a cobbler hut and then they appear on a planned recurring basis. I like that you can go around some obstacles so you can reach other items and don't always need to take things in a specific order as some of the other time management ones require ...think Royal Envoy - you have to stick to the road and take things in the order laid out. And I love that you can chop down any tree that is in the scene. On some of the scenes I just spent time chopping away just to lay down an entire forest ...but you need 'food' in order to chop the trees.... You will recognize scenes across the three games. Sometimes there's significant changes to where the features are laid out on the land and othertimes the developers didn't bother to make many changes. However, it didn't bother me and sometimes it was fun to see what they had done differently.

I love this game. Can't stop playing. It is challenging, but not so difficult you can't finish. I like how you can choose the level of difficulty.

Plan on getting hooked!
R of R II is brilliant in all categories. Different landscapes, vivid colours, amazing scenes, challenges, strategy, much harder & much more interesting & challenging than R of R 1.
This game is not boring at all. I can't wait until R of R III is available in the Mac version.
Do I recommend this game? "Absolutely".
