Roads of Rome III
I expected more
As a third edition to the series I expected more from this game. I found that the cursor was still clunky and lagged, and the fires everywhere were just annoying. The game play is exactly the same as the first two, however, the smithy/workshop etc now put out a resource you need to go and collect, which in my opinion is just a huge distraction and time waster. This does have an expert mode, but as a seasoned Roads of Rome player I found the regular mode of play challenging to get expert times on. Expert mode was WAY out of my league after about level 5. Not the best game of the three, but I still enjoyed playing it. Also has LOADS of replay value with lots of time needed to get through it the first time. (I played it for about ten hours until I got bored of the sameness around level 3-10)

I am currently playing Roads of Rome III and cannot get past episode 3 level 1 as it asks me to clear the road, destroy the totem and build a market but there doesnt seem to be enough coins for you to do this is it me or are other people having the same problem, other than that i am enjoying the game but this has got me stuck and getting impatient now

Round three is disappointing
You would think that by the 3rd release of this game, there would be an option for experienced users to turn off the hints, etc. It's insulting that that one little option is not available. It's disappointing that the scenes are altered only slightly from the previous version, and there just wasn't much effort put into this new game. I would have been a dedicated follower if my purchase investment would have rewarded me for spending my money on this game. It's comparable to re-releasing Monsters in 3D without any other changes - making money twice off pretty much the same release. Very disappointing.

Go for Royal Envoy
I played this a while back. But now that other games are in the market, like Royal Envoy, though having the same concept, their graphics and game play is better.
Though once you play this, you will find it addictive, level after level. But then it gets repetitive and then boring.

Roads of Rome III
This game is far too difficult for me and very dark. I don't like dark games or movies.

Too Difficult to Complete
While I loved Roads of Rome 1 and 2, I had high expectations for #3. The sound quality and visuals are excellent as in the past, but the game gets frustrating as you go along, to the point that it gets too difficult to continue. I gave up by level 21. I played in the normal mode expecting there to be a challenge, but not that much of a challenge. The games gets to the point that you cannot achieve expert level after the first 6 or 7 levels. There are too many obstacles to overcome in order to complete a level. At one point I replayed a level three times in order to get through to the next level.
I want a game that is challenging, but yet fun to play. Royal Envoy 1 and 2 are examples of this. as well as the Build-A-Lot series, Coconut Queen, etc. If you want to frustrate yourself, get this game; if not pass it up.

Not as Good as 1 and 2
I loved the first two games. This third one took what I considered to be a fun game and ruined it! While the first two games were fun enough to play in the relaxed mode without getting boring, this game totally ruined that aspect. While I would STRONGLY recommend the first two games, I can NOT recommend this one. The exchange rate of food to wood and other resources was altered in this game. If they make a fourth, I hope they go back to the original rate.

Not Up To Par with the Rest of the Series
Sure the game offers four modes of play: Relaxed, Easy, Normal and Hard.
The problem is that on certain levels, depending on the mode, it is either too easy or too hard and there is no in between.
Very disappointed with this game.
