Fun to play but I don't think I would purchase it.

12 Labours of Hercules Overly Laborious and Dull
I honestly do not see the correlation between Roads of Rome and this game that other gamers have mentioned. I was excited to see people compare Hercules to Roads of Rome only to be very disappointed. There is no strategy to this game. I didn't like it at all. The game just "gives" you what you have to gather and doesn't give you decisions to make that affect what outcome you have. You are channeled into going in one specific direction. The flags don't serve any real purpose except to confuse the visuals.

Bored very fast
I ended up buying the game thinking it would get better as the level progressed but it wasn't the case for me. The story line is cool and could have been developed much further but the game play got tedious and boring as the levels progressed. Actions asked to do are repetitive and far too long having workers always return to home base takes even longer. the level of challenge was more time consumption than actual skill. graphics and story is cool

basic time management with little challenge
Time management is my favourite type of game, so I was intrigued when this came to my attention via an email. However it was very disappointing: the challenges were not challenging at all, with the game still continuing when the timer ran out(?). Plus I felt that each level pretty much contained the same challenge but with a variation to the story. Even the chapter end games did not present any threat to my gaming skills. It didn't take long to complete the game in full, but I felt it was all quite tedious from after level three.
I think that younger players would enjoy it and possibly the theme, but older games would be better off looking elsewhere.
The only reason I gave it two stars was that I didn't pay full price.

It started off great, then, it just got dumb.
The beginning is almost too easy. Then came a level where I needed 80 gold and there was nothing to do but sit and wait. One of the "extra" levels I finally beat and I never knew what I did. After that the game went down hill and I lost interest.

Below Average TM
Nothing new. Not challenging, mini games are not properly explained and quite boring. Do not recommend.

Amazing Adventures the riddle of two knights
This game is the worst. It repeats to the point of beyond boredom and is not challenging at all.

Lowest rating ever
I love TM games so I had to try this one. The graphics are fabulous and Hercules is immensely entertaining. Unfortunately the designers focused on graphics and animation and forgot to make the game fun. I played the demo and while I found it impossible to finish at the 3 star level I figured I'd get it after playing awhile so I bought the game. After 4 days of playing this game and going through every level at least once, I give up. The game isn't winnable at the 3 star level. Resources take up to 3 minutes to recharge so you spend an enormous amount of time watching the clock run out while you wait for things to recharge. It's frustrating and boring looking at a screen where nothing is happening. Finally something recharges, you click, then you sit and wait again. Great animation can't compensate for a game that's unwinnable and tedious.

a big disappointment
I played this game in promotion level, and when I saw this game out I hoped they improved it. Unfotunatelly nothing changed.
After 5 levels I couldn't get even 2 stars, not to think of 3. Multiple click was annoying and confusing, the flag would disappear before I got to the tusk and was not sure if I clicked on it or not. You have to collect everything, no choice which way to go, and resources take so long to recharge then you just run out of time. You can't do anything but just watch the time running out. It could have been a great game, with Greek theme but somehow it went flat.
