All My Gods
Not for those who know Greco-Roman history.
Because the darn thing will just drive you batty. Venus wasn't married to Mars, she was married to Vulcan! She cheated on Vulcan all the time with Mars, however. And why would the main character want a cheated old cougar like her when there's plenty of young goddesses who'd remain faithful?
The constant interruptions by Zeus, Mars, and Hera drove me batty. If my workers went on strike one more time I was ready to start smiting them.
Mostly though I strongly disliked the whole "wooing Venus" thing. She was NOT married to Mars and gods or not, it's always wrong to break up a marriage. That never should have been part of the game.

Couldn't stop, but not great fun.
I felt compelled to finish the game, but it wasn't really fun. There wasn't really much of a challenge. It basically told you exactly what to do, and you just clicked along.

C'mon you guys
Cute graphics, basic story line, but this isn't challenging on any level. There really isn't any strategy involved in this game. You basically do what you are told to do, then do it again, then build this building and that one and the next. As far as strategy games go, this is the crayola crayon version and not the small, regular crayons, but those really big ones for little kids.
This can be a relaxing time passer, but it offers no challenge. If you put in the time, you're going to beat this game with ease.

It certainly wasn't bad...
I wouldn't say this was a bad game, but it's not one of my top 50 either.
It would suit those that may be new to games or those that want a slower pace. I only played the trial and I'm sure it will get more difficult as the game progresses but....
I'll probably buy this one if it comes onto a really good sale price or if I need to use up a credit. But it's not high on my list.

Lots love it but not my style of game but doesn't mean it's not good
I have to go on my own thoughts and I couldn't get into it but I can see why some do if that makes sense... I love strategy types but some I just can't do... This is one of them I did play for less than hour it just didn't make me want to buy it... But have fun and have a great day... I went with a 3 scoring because it was ok for me... but not a bad game either...I'm heading out to seek out a game fit for my style...

Good play concept, annoying at times
I really enjoyed the game strategy, but found the hyper-repetitive fires, building repairs, trade cut scenes and striking workers to be quite annoying.

Pretty good game could gain 4 stars if it was more historical accurate. Its about Greek Gods, not Roman Gods, dah!!
