Not bad, but runs weird on modern PCsqvothe | Jan. 26, 2016 | See all qvothe's reviews »
It's another old RTS that will sadly have problems running on modern PCs. You will have to run it in compatible mode with older system versions, you will have problems with resolution, the controls will work weird (your mouse will have crazy acceleration because of big resolution of your screen). That put aside you will get usual not bad not great RTS, with some nice and deep RPG elements that will require quite a lot of micromanagement. If such games are your thing and you can put up with problems of playing whis on modern PC - you may pick it up. Otherwise look for something newer or better ported to new platforms.

This is a great game. I have played this game tons and once you understand how the heroes work within it it's a blast. Armies are attached to your heroes and all units gain XP through battle. Bases are unique. It’s entertaining and even a bit educational, at least from a historical perspective. And while the audio and visual elements are admittedly showing their age, the core game engine is solid and the computer AI is untouched by anything else in the current crop of competitors. There are certainly better titles on the RTS horizon, but until those games materialize Nemesis is a worthy addition to any strategy gamer’s collection and will keep you engrossed for countless hours of historic battles of epic proportions.

Nemesis of the Roman Empire, made by the small but by no means untalented Bulgarian studio Haemimont. NotRE is a deep war real-time strategy. There is an interesting historically correct storyline, but where the game shines is its gameplay. You have control over every single building and unit. The music isn't that great and the voiceovers are mediocore, but the main game is amazing! Every strategy games fan should check out Nemesis of the Roman Empire.
