Children of the Nile deserves a lot more than lazy It’s Pharaoh in 3D! gush. Yes, it’s an absorbing city-nurturing game set in the time of Rameses and Ra worship. Sure, it features pyramid construction. OK, it was crafted by a lot of ex-Impressions folk. Go beyond these superficialities however, and you find a very different experience, one far more in tune with history and less interested in complexity for complexity’s sake.”

PC Gamer Review:
“Much of the game’s challenge rests in the difficult choice between using precious prestige slots for hoi-polloi servicing priests, or using them to hire the tax-collectors, overseers and army commanders that will ultimately generate more prestige slots. You won’t want to get off this merry go round in a hurry, not with a wonderfully vibrant, believable metropolis growing and maturing with each turn of the wheel.”
