The game is great. It's somewhat broken and I believe it will be up to the modders to fix it. Once CA fixes most of the performance issues and the modding community gets into it it will be better than Rome I
It's a great game, only made better by some serious modding within the community. I love using CH Trainer for this game or when I'm not using this trainer I'll use a mod to do the same exact thing like Takers Total Cheat Mods which reduce the squalor, increase food, etc. etc. But like I said, this game is good but made great by mods from Taker and a few others.
