The Rise & Rule Of the Ancient Empires

The Rise & Rule Of the Ancient Empires (Sierra-Online) follows roughly the same rules as Civilization II, but with considerably less flair. Begin the game by choosing a spot to settle; proceed to build an empire and, eventually, conquer the world. Managing your armies, cities, food, production, technology, and diplomacy is sure to keep you busy, but the experience on the whole is far less complete than that provided by Civilization II – the choices of military units, terrain types, research subjects, and just about everything else is severely limited. The play-action, in fact, is inferior to the original Civilization, although the graphics are admittedly more impressive. Graphics can only take a game so far, though, and in the case of The Rise & Rule of Ancient Empires, it’s not far enough.
