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.”
