Roads of Rome III
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.

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

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.

No, no, no
RoR one was really good, RoR 2 was ok, 3 RoR is just boring. Nothing new, no inovation, just like many others.

Better in this type available on this site
I have now done Road I, II and III and after I they are all the same except more fires in II and then more fires in III. You can cut down any trees until you get the sawmill up, the berry bushes replenish until you get the farm going and stones abound until the quarry is running. So, you really don't have to take a minute or two to figure out how you're going to get from point A to Z with the limited resources at your hands because you're never without resources. I have tried several other games of this type on this site and they were all better and after several easy levels worked you up to making you think of what your next move would be and if you didn't plan well you had to redo that level. Glam-ma says 2 thumbs down. Not even worth getting as a free game - so sad.

Get rid of the big green arrows!
Please please please can we have an option to turn off the hints right at the start. The big green arrows and constant pop ups are driving me mad!
I loved the first two versions of the this game but I am hating this one.
