This craziness was almost certainly sparked by the Life of Brian question 'What have the Romans ever done for us?' Caesar IV may actually provide a definitive answer.
In recent months a new genre has emerged in PC gaming Roman city-builders. These SimCity-esque games have been popping up all over the place: Glory of the Roman Empire and CivCity Rome both receiving luke-warm receptions recently from critics world wide.
Nothing has recaptured the character, the charm or the playability of Caesar III, released 8 years ago. The question is, will the new kid on the block have what it takes to live up to its fine heritage?
I described it as a new genre because in recent months a whole host of games have been released that are all very similar. Whereas before there was just Caesar III.
