Cleopatra: Queen of the Nile is an expansion pack of a classic city building game known as Pharaoh
, developed by Impressions Games. While other expansion packs comes with extra features then their original games, Cleopatra, however, doesn't bring a lot. In comparison to Pharaoh, in the expansion pack, you'll be playing the same game, this time in the role of Cleopatra, as the name of the game suggests, and you'll have some new structures to work with, like a zoo as an entertainment building. For those of you who aren't familiar with the gameplay, here's a summary of what you basically have to do: you start off in an unpopulated area, building houses, granaries, hunting ground etc., until you have built a great Egyptian city, which you would later have to manage it and protect your people from different hazards, such as the plague and fire. Even though I had a lot of fun with the game and enjoyed it's sort-of-like story, the expansion pack, for me, seemed really unnecessary. The graphics, sound and gameplay are the same, no changes being brought. Overall, Cleopatra: Queen of the Nile is an expansion pack that you pretty can skip and just stick to the original game. It has little to offer and doesn't bring a lot of extra features, like many other expansion packs of other games do.
