Roads of Rome II
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

Ok for little kids
This game would be fine for small children but not much challenge for others.

Maybe I just don't get it....
I was bored with this game in about 3 minutes. Even if it gets more challenging I'm not clear on what's fun about running back and forth endlessley chopping down trees and building the same road..... for hours. Maybe I just don't understand this type of game or genre but this was definitely not for me. So glad I only tried it and didn't buy it.

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?
