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".

Great Time Management Fun
I love all three versions of this game. Play it hours on end. They have so many challenges that require constant thinking and prioritizing. Fun! Fun!

Improved on first Roads of Rome
This building strategy - men running around doing your bidding - finish in expert - rebuild the city - game to this player is an improvement on the first Roads of Rome. There appears to be a better grip on the strategy part for me. The later levels become quite hard and give you a good challenge. Sufficiently different story and graphics to be worth the purchase if you already have the first one.

Not a bad game to pass the time
Where ROADS OF ROME I missed so badly for enjoyment, the game writers scored a hit with ROADS OF ROME II. ROADS OF ROME II has a ?Relaxed? mode for those of us who play for fun and not as some competition against a clock. Without a clock to tell you that you missed the time and need to play that level again, this game scores high on the fun scale where ROADS OF ROME I was a total zero. The animation is clever and fun to watch and the story changes a little bit from level to level. All in all this is a fun and very addicting way to spent time.

Played one and two. This is the best so far. Love the challenge in the final stages and the bonus stage was a great challenge. Looking at getting number 3. Play the first one before this one for the good story. Both games are worth a play.

the good game
in my opinion it is a good game it tests your brain with the time limit it has i am saying nothing bad about it because the start is easy and it gets harrier as you progress it all so tests your thinking patten with the gathering resources like which resource first
