Imperator: Rome Deluxe Edition

Alexander. Hannibal. Caesar. These great men and dozens like them shaped the destiny of a continent. Mighty kings, clever generals and would-be gods made their mark on the ancient Mediterranean. Around this sea, close knit nations tested their mettle and virtue against each other in fierce combat, their cultural and political legacy now inseparable from what we understand as Western Civilization. But nothing was guaranteed. Can you change the course of history in Imperator: Rome?  Now includes the Punic Wars content pack.
Imperator: Rome is the newest grand strategy title from Paradox Development Studio. Set in the tumultuous centuries from Alexander’s Successor Empires in the East to the foundation of the Roman Empire, Imperator: Rome invites you to relive the pageantry and challenges of empire building in the classical era. Manage your population, keep an eye out for treachery, and keep faith with your gods.

A living world of characters with varying skills and traits that will change over time. They will lead your nation, govern your provinces and command your armies and fleets. We also introduce our new, more human-like character art.

Citizens, freemen, tribesmen and slaves - each population with its own culture and religion. Whether they fill your armies, fill your coffers or fill your colonies, keep an eye on their happiness - your success depends on their satisfaction.

Choose your approach before battle to counter the stratagems of your foes.

Each culture has a unique way of waging war. Romans and Celts have different options available to them. Unlock unique bonuses, abilities and units.

Manage the senate in a Republic, hold your court together in a monarchy, answer to the clans in a tribal system.

Migrating barbarians may sack or settle your best land, while disloyal governors or generals can turn against you - taking their armies with them!

Goods provide bonuses to their home province. Will you take advantage of stockpiles for local strength or trade excess goods to spread the wealth around?

Invest in buildings, roads and defences to make your kingdom stronger and richer.

  • A good game with a lot of depth & just what one would expect from Paradox. Play it through once or twice just for fun, then grab one of the strategy guides that will be popping up to more fully appreciate the mechanics.

  • Huge, inventive and the reason I'm sleep deprived. It's brilliant.

  • Imperator: Rome is one of the best grand strategy games on the market.

  • Imperator: Rome feels like it's yet another step in Paradox's attempts to make the perfect grand strategy game. It pulls bits from Paradox's storied past in the genre and adopts it for the ancient era. Because of this, it doesn't feel like past releases where the game does one thing fantastically and falters in the rest of the mechanics but instead refines past mechanics into a marble bust of megalomaniacal fun. Ave Imperator: Rome!

  • Imperator Rome is a monument of the strategy game. Surely one of the most complete games from Paradox. It is a real journey for the mind and it will make you experience Greek-Roman antiquity as in way that has been too rarely been used in video games before. A pure jewel.

  • it’s hard not to be very impressed with what Imperator: Rome has to offer. The feel of the game is exactly what Paradox promised: a true test of management of early civilisation on the brink of modernisation. You can develop your nation and expand to your heart’s content – but like the mighty Romans, you must constantly look outwards to your neighbours and inwards to your own people for threats and disturbances. Imperator: Rome truly has the depth and versatility to become one of Paradox’s finest.

  • It’s basically a very good game, especially if you have patience and a good head for numbers.

  • Imperator: Rome is Paradox's new grand strategy, an absolute certainty in the genre.

  • Imperator Rome is a great example of an entertaining historical game developed by Paradox studios. I was able to manipulate the fates of great empires and easily engage in wars, coups or intrigues. It's a difficult game to review because you want to play it all the time.

  • Imperator: Rome brings together in a single game the best ideas of the two great works of Paradox: Europa Universalis IV and Crusader Kings II.

  • Another big game from Paradox Studios.

  • Most of the time it feels fascinating to shape an ancient civilization. You have a plethora of options at your disposal but sometimes it can become frustrating with the amount of detail you are involved with. That the presentation is very static doesn’t help either.

  • What Imperator: Rome does, it does impeccably well. Like Paradox games have been doing for years now, it will devour hours and whole days of your life, and you will give them willingly. But you will have to work for it, learn it like a foreign language. But it is worth it, and the more time you put into learning it, the more you will come to appreciate it. Even Rome wasn’t built in a day.

  • Quotation forthcoming.

  • Imperator: Rome packs more interesting strategic systems and detail into its vast historical sandbox simulation than its interface can fully handle, but they produce some excellent political scheming and warfare.

  • As Imperator grows in scale from its Clausewitz cousins, so too it grows in depth and ultimately in unwieldiness. But there's a grand strategy with aeons of play in it for you.

  • Imperator: Rome is a classic, old school strategy that offers a gameplay so deep that only professional strategy players might have a chance with it. If you are a fan and you are dying for a solid strategy title like good old days, this is what you've been waiting for.

  • Quotation forthcoming.

  • Everything seems rock solid, but those who had hoped for a new impetus will be disappointed. Veterans will find their way around quickly, but newcomers will continue to struggle because many rules are under-stated.

  • Imperator: Rome has some rough edges and it's not quite up to par with the excellent games Paradox usually churns out, but at the same time, it is still a challenging and rewarding experience that's bound to keep you engaged for long stretches.

  • A very Paradox game, in both a good and bad way. It has all the hallmarks of a good game, and I look forward to seeing continued development as time goes by.

  • There’s great potential in Imperator, but the game is hamstrung by a lack of content, historical inaccuracies and surprisingly tame peace mechanics.

  • Rome: Imperator is one of Paradox’s biggest and best games - it also has a bigger focus on military expansion than their other games.

  • The learning curve is high and the interface a bit confusing, but in the end Imperator: Rome is a good game for all grand strategy fans.

  • Game World Navigator Magazine

    I’d like to believe that in time, with a few DLCs, Imperator will become a worthy Antiquity simulator. Still, it’s a worrying sign that a brand new Paradox game has basically no original features at its launch. [Issue#238, p.66]

  • Imperator: Rome has its moments, and some excellent foundations. But while there’s always the promise of what’s to come, right here and now there’s plenty to be found wanting.

  • Imperator: Rome has its moments, and some excellent foundations. But while there’s always the promise of what’s to come, right here and now there’s plenty to be found wanting.

  • Imperator: Rome combines the quirks and mechanics of multiple Paradox titles, but it lacks the charm and depth to stand out on its own. It wore the trappings and regalia of Marcus Aurelius, yet, once removed, out came Commodus instead.

  • LEVEL (Czech Republic)

    The new Paradox big-strategy can draw you in and offers some time of entertainment, but is far from satisfying your imagination of an ancient leader. [Issue#295]

  • Imperator attacks confused players with tons of buttons and information, but in reality it’s one of the most vapid and boring strategy games ever created by Paradox Interactive. The world map is very pretty, though.

  • Imperator: Rome is another showmanship of Paradox’s greed that is manifested through their DLC politics. In its core, it is a good game with some intuitive ideas that are resolved through a very interesting time period, but it falls short in almost all fields where its mechanics are clearly left unfinished for some DLCs to fulfil them.

  • Imperator: Rome is a massive game, yet one that falls markedly short in comparison to what we've gotten used to with other Paradox titles like Crusader Kings 2 or Europa Universalis 4. An outdated, lacking or outright broken UI hampers the experience dramatically, despite a beautifully gorgeous new campaign map and an awesome and innovative new trade system. Imperator tries to be a bit of both; a family and state-oriented game, but in its pursuit of this goal, it sadly becomes neither.

  • Imperator: Rome feels undercooked. As it stands, it's a strange mish-mash of several of Paradox's existing (and, let's be honest, superior) games without much to distinguish or recommend it. Paradox recently outlined a "One Year Plan" for the title in an effort to reassure players that they are aware of its shortcomings and intend to address them. That roadmap appears insubstantial to my eyes, but we'll see when we get there. For now, Imperator: Rome remains a decidedly modest strategy game.
