This game is the sequel to 'Glory of the Roman Empire'...it is a stratgey game which requires you to build and maintain a effeciently running Roman settlement.
You must build an upgrade farms and houses, as well as butchers, temples and scores of other items. I however feel that it is not as good as its predecessor. Imperium Romanun seems even slower paced than its prequel and nothing notable has been added to the game.
The scenarios are tedious and time consuming, there is no storyline and the game does not provide you with any incentives to make you want to complete it. I'd put this game on the same fun level as a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle of a car park...it retails at around £25-29...you can get a puzzle that size for around £5...you make the choice.
