Take command of Rome and help it to survive while the Eastern Empires are causing trouble. You have the resources of the entire Empire at your disposal; used wisely, they might just stop civilisation being swept away by the warring tribes.

Frank: Attempting to quell the fall of Rome can really be quite addictive - providing you don't expect too much razmatazz-type action. A few battle scenes would improve matters. HIT


Ian: This is a good idea for a strategy game, even though the graphics aren't exactly spectacular. The map is drawn well and the result is an acceptable screen display. HIT

Phil: The inputting of all the variables is very tedious - and so is waiting for the program to make its calculations. It even responds with "Please be patient..." while it's thinking. MISS
