I got this retro kind of feeling for Ancient Rome 2. It reminded me of the old Sierra City Builders, like Caesar, Pharoah, and Emperor, and would spend hours on these, especially the Pharoah/Cleopatra set, but Ancient Rome 2 seemed more like a streamlined version of Caesar III. While some of the aspects are similar, the combining of the fire and police departments into one unit is rather nice, and not having to appease the gods with festivals is great, too.
I only played the trial, so if that came up later, then I missed it.

This was one very strange game, and it felt not unlike being inside one of those episode of the Yugioh cartoon where the students get caught inside the puzzles, or when they do a flashback to Yugi’s time as a pharoah in Egypt. In Eternal Night: Realm of Souls, you are chosen to go into the realm of the gods to find out why there has been a plague of darkness set on the land for the last ten days. Here you meet with Anubis, Set, and other various gods from the Kemetic pantheon, and take on the mystery of why Set has kidnapped Ra, the sun god, and how to rescue Ra. The graphics are colourful, but strange. Hathor appears as a giant harp, and your have to search though gardens and other puzzles to find a way to make the vegetation of Egypt grow again. Anyone who is really into Egyptology would enjoy this game, as it deals with situations and characters normally not found in basic archaeology studies, nor in any Mummy movies.
