Close but no cigar

Europa Universalis Rome: Gold is so close to being good but it just lacks the polish of the later game. It has the same flavor that Paradox spreads throughout its games yet it lacks what you would expect out of grand strategy game. The combat is well done but there leave a lot to be desired during peace time. At many times I am left scratching my head waiting for the next war to start. Roman history is my favorite time but they dont get the flavor right. The idea of colonizing so much land seems really unfeazible when Romans would conquer most through military victory. Instead you have to wastefully move troops around to arrise their attacks. Good thing is that mods make this game a lot better. In conclusion, you should make sure to check out the mods before buying this game.

Good, but lacking polish

Rome Gold is a good game. No game breaking bugs, but lacking polish of later Paradox grand strategy games. Roman Era is my favorite time, and I'm glad I can play those years through this game. However, you'll have more fun and take advantage of Paradox's continuing improvements by playing later games such as EU3, or Crusader Kings 2.

Overall, if you are in love with late BC early AD time period in Europe, you can't go wrong with this game.

Smaller than the last

Compared to the original and the third Europa Universalis, EU Rome can feel small and lacking in the number of factions. It's still fun, but it's a significantly smaller feel.
