Roads of Rome, Roads of Rome 2 and Roads of Rome 3 are the most enthralling series of time management games I have ever played. The first Roads of Rome time management game had me stumbling, fumbling and frustrated as I attempted to "get under the Expert wire". "No", I would yell at my Mac screen, "can't happen, no way, too hard!" Well, I eventually got the rhthymn of the game, remembered to pick my berries when my workers had a spare moment, build my Storehouses for those all-important extra resource points, and, literally, manage the worker's time. Here's an odd thing: I found when I was in full throttle game play but broke for lunch or chores, I would zip right through those suckers. I mean, I was a multi-taking whizz and tasks in my own home got nailed down and shut up tight with blinding speed. Anyone else experience the phenomenon, where Art literally imbues life? In closing, I cannot for the life of me understand the low rating of the Roads of Rome under the Time Management head. Cutesy salons, coffee shops, ditzy girly games? Dunno, folks, I sense the imminent Dumbing of Time Management games! I plead for a Roads of Rome IV or at least a Time Management game which displays a similar respect for the player. I found music and graphics decent, workers drawn rather anonymously but then, Roman workers WERE anonymous. Possible to have a few centurions or other authority figures sprinklered at key moments within the game itself? Minor quibble - this game ain't broke, don't fix it, must make more!
