This game is perfect for: casual gamers
Graphics rating is based on the graphics at that time NOT current standards. If you like strategy/sand box building games this might be for you. It's a fun game with lots of replay value, I have played at least 400 hours on it myself. If you like the Egyptian themed games you will like this, you can build pyramids and tombs and command hundreds-thousands of workers! here is also the combat, it's not like you will see it, it's basically a numbers game and you get the results although brigands and rivals will raid you cities, it's mainly about building and ensuring successive pharaohs. You can build your own maps and there are many available from the fan base, so you have lots of possibilities! It's a great sandbox game and if you like those you will be extremely pleased with this one. I have enjoyed it for many years and even now break it out when I am looking for a good sandbox game to sink some time into.
