Review by Mudderducker on 6/9/2014.
Simply 'Spectacular' I can honestly say this is going to be one of my favourite maps, for many reasons: design is appealing, territories are super well done, ideas into the map are superb and the big cities make it a top quality map.
There's nothing much wrong with this map at all, the only thing I would of done is separate the bigger bonuses out more. However considering the many individual city bonuses, its not a big problem. Again Great! job. Well worth 5 stars ;)
This map will be successful, if it could reach the popularity of yours :-) I am not sure if I keep the Egyptian Bonus as large. May be it'll be changed. Let's see what further matches telling about. Thanks for your close look at! Your opinion is always welcome!
Review by NinjaNic on 6/9/2014.
This map looks really cool. I love the idea where you can conquer a whole city instead of just having 1 territory.
A review like this is worth 6/5, if it was made by an Top-Map-Creator like you are!
Review by Nathan on 6/10/2014.
Wow. Just wow. This map is beautiful, incredible and epic. I didn't even find any missing connections, which is astounding in a map with 1,500 territories.
My only suggestion would be to use smaller, more manageable bonus areas, preferably with 10 or fewer territories to a bonus area.

hmmm... I think I'll add some "silent" bonuses, which could be activated. :-)

Excellent map. And you can see a village of indomitable Gauls. ;)

This is a very enjoyable map. It is great for FFA's and team games. Vitrix Mortalis loves it and so do I.
Thank you, Vitrix Mortalis for the perfect cooperative work!
Review by Varana on 8/27/2014.
Very impressive, very big, very many good ideas in it.
But gameplay feels like being a viking: The beginning of the game is a coastal race from harbour to harbour, gaining 1 income per attack. This income system would be great for a viking map. Being a roman empire map, either land should generate more income (double) or there should be ships on the routes, slowing down the movement on sea.

v good map like it
Review by Krulle on 6/20/2014.
Wow. Simply wow!
(Stop giving me history lessons, you lovely guys!)
Love the small, unconquerable village in Coriosolites (Armorica). :)
A touch like this makes a map very enjoyable (and in the end-game I dumped my armies there instead of crushing my enemies even worse)
Also, could you please check the conenction between Taulanti and the city of Buthrotum? There seems to be an accidental connection between the two....
-I personally find the Egypt bonus okay. The amount of small city bonuses is far more important anyway.
You could divide Egypt into the ancient (pre-roman) North-Egypt and South-Egypt, if you really want.

Truly an epic map. Well done.
Review by cinereaste on 11/25/2014.
Error: Taulani and Buthrotum are linked, but shouldn't be, according to the visuals.
Overall, very nice map! Interesting geography, beautifully done.
Review by Craig Hepler on 6/24/2014.
I liked the mix of regional battles and the city battles in this map.
Review by okasan on 7/8/2014.
A fantastic map, with a lot of thought (and wit) having gone into it. For single players, it has been noted before, not much of a challenge sadly, as the AI behaves rather oddly and once the port cities have been conquered, by about move 15, the game is effectively over and all that's left is "where is the AI hiding". Tip: against six AIs the game is a bit more challenging, though it remains the only mega map where conquering all or nearly all countries is not a necessity at all.
Review by dununfola on 9/30/2014.
I love how the bonus system on this map completely transforms gameplay, making it almost historically accurate.
Review by Damion Strife on 10/26/2014.
Grate large map. Loved the layout, and the army bonuses weren't so high that it gets out of control. Impressive eye for history.
Review by searingmage on 11/22/2014.
Very intricate - perhaps a little too intricate - but highly enjoyable, if extremely long.
Review by newingot on 7/3/2015.
Very good map! It's very finely drawn and makes the spirit of old IMPERIVMROMANVM and surrounding places! Too bad that it doesn't show entire Mesopotamia but that's fine because that province was for 1 year. Not important.

quite amazing nice work.

Review by Njugu on 3/8/2015.
The only reason for 4 stars is that the AI seems to play really weirdly on this map. Otherwise this is a really good map with lots of original ideas. I suspect this map will turn out to be a LOT more fun with 5 or 6 hooman players!
Review by ViralGoat on 3/14/2016.
My top 2 map! I love the way you can hop from one city to another. The cities are the way to go on this map. The annoying part is that some bonuses are way overpowered and others are way underpowered

A real nice map, accurate, lots of work by whoever made it, congratulations.
You need to sit back since turns take a while to complete.

The bonus structure is hard to understand, especially from mobile.

Hello, you can add at least other smalls tribes how the barbarians in map?
Response by map creator eliod on 6/14/2014
Nearly every Territory have the name of a tribe who lived there (or near by).

Bonuses are too large for big team games, but the map is too big for smaller games
