Lovely Game... BUT.....
I really enjoyed this game but it takes for EVER !!!!!!! to reach the point amount to gain enough materials to built your town.

Tomatoes in Ancient Egypt?
Similar to "Cradle of Rome", with graphics even nicer, this might be a nice or even very nice game. However, the tomatoes kept irritating me - they appear early in the game as a food symbol, and I can't help thinking about them all the time, how absolutely wrong they are in Ancient Egypt... Perhaps I am just too concerned with history.

CAN'T FINISH GAME:NO PHAROH FOR ME
This game started out really fun for me. However, I am so frustrated as every time I try to end the game, it tells me to replay the epoch. So I do, and then it tells me to replay it over and over and over again. I have tried in both timed and untimed, and still can't get the pharoh. So I now hate the game as it won't let me finish. Wish it had instructions.

Fun but Frustrating!
The visuals were great, but the mini-puzzles were kind of lame. Also, there were several times I came close to Pharoah on the last epoch, but was running several thousand points behind, so had to replay the epoch. So...I just had to use the Ankh bonus every time it came up early in the game and had to play the same game making matches just to build up points before closing the game. This became a bit boring and I had to exit the game off and on just to get on with the rest of my life. It is a fun game, but took forever to get to Pharoah. And, this was in the untimed mode!

Game is virtually not winnable
The game is challenging, but it is just about impossible to complete the game and build all of the things in Egypt. In the fifth and final epoch the game either gives you puzzles that absolutely cannot be solved in the time allowed and/or you have to spend all of your resources to get enough time to complete the puzzle, which means you don't have what you need to build the rest of the game.

I played the 60 minutes and thought this got boring. It was easy - at least during the time I played. I don't want to buy it in case it never gets better.

One Word - Tedius
All I can say is this game is slow and boring. I kept trying to stick it out, but got about half way through and just couldn't take it any more. I don't usually quit a game, but I just didn't care about the "story" at all.

as it says, not for windows 7
partly a technical issue but just to highlight that it runs on vista and xp - it won't run on my windows 7 - game loads and it looks good, until i hit play when it loses the game graphics so can't see the items on the board
