For a start, it’s fairly beautiful for a game in its infancy. The Nile in particular – which must be, by definition, the heart of any Egyptian city builder – is lush and full of life, and I was a massive fan of the water lilies in particular. The music was on point too, and if the game can hit the same notes as Pharaoh did with sound design (genuinely, the sound effects, from wind in reeds to grunting hippos, were what made me fall in love with it), it’s going to be in very much the right territory, atmosphere-wise. … [Read more...] about Builders Of Egypt could grow into the defining historical city builder – but it ain’t there yet
In the digital era, it can be quite difficult to keep up with the amount of media available. There's simply more content out there than ever before, and it can make it difficult for consumers to figure out exactly what they might want to buy next.

The premise seems to be that, even in the New 52 with a lot of the old stories not "counting," DC is concerned that seeing the same villains and the same heroes face off will inevitably result in a kind of greatest hits tour, making each fight a slightly different version of one of the previous ones. By putting Superman villains in Batman books and Batman villains in Wonder Woman, the logic goes, you can see about creating some new rivalries and allow writers to stretch some new muscles without worrying about whether borrowing someone else's villain is somehow stepping on their toes.
