Editors' Review

Strategy gamers who get a kick out of King Tut will find much to love in this ancient Egyptian adventure, which takes plenty of cues from competing titles. You are the governor of a city in the land of the pharaohs, set with the task of feeding your people and striking deals with other towns to bring in the goods your town requires. Fans of Caesar III will find Pharaoh's look and feel familiar, and veterans of SimCity too will be pleased to see the range of actions available far exceeds that modern-day adventure. Action is goal oriented, rather than combat oriented--you don't build your city with abandon, but follow directions to complete a certain task. Considering Pharoah was designed in 1999, its graphics are still up to snuff--most views are from a bird's-eye vantage point, so you can survey your domain. Overall, this is a standard but solid civilization building game that should please fans of ancient history.
