Caesar - PC, 29/2/96


Ancient Rome is a perfect scenario for a god sim: pan-continental empire, big fights, authoritarianism and people making themselves sick.

And, indeed, this might have been the perfect realisation. In 1990.

Now look: overhead graphics so basic your 486 will shoot over them with Biffo-like uncontrollability, and a weedy AI designed for 640k RAM. Buy Populous, or wait for Caesar 2.
