I can live with simple graphics as long as its a great game.

Granted great looking graphics does not guarantee a great game ...but it does pull you in initially. The art is severely drab and from what I can tell ...it just feels empty. One would hope that Roma really has it together in other departments but the visuals are just hurting their chances. The idea appeals to me but as much as I would jump at the chance to play in an online Roman world ...the poor screenshots are a major turnoff.
I can't wait for this game to come. The graphics don't bother me I'll still play it.
Yeah, I agree. Judging by the graphics I would not give it a whole of attention. But since they are not scheduled to release the game until the end of September, maybe they will turn that around. I will definitely keep a close eye on this one, looks interesting.
Graphics are "shock troops". They'll get people to *look at the game*. If they want people to stay and actually play it, they'll need gameplay, features, all that stuff. Graphics look pretty, yes, but without the rest they are just an empty shell (Farcry anyone?)
