Description

Violence
Welcome to Rome – Welcome to War.

Two world dominating games in one! Uniting multi-award winning Rome: Total War and its official expansion pack, Barbarian invasion, you must guide history’s greatest armies to their victories in a game of epic real-time warfare, empire building, politics and treachery.

Play as one of three great Roman families, whose thirst for power will stop at nothing. This the world of Hannibal, Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and a thousand others. This is a world of soldiers, gladiators, tyrants, monsters and fools. It’s a rich, exciting world, awaiting a conqueror – you! You must use military genius to build an empire that stretches across Europe and Africa. Finally march on Rome to seize control of the greatest empire in the world. Then in Barbarian invasion either defend it or lead a Barbarian horde and bring the once mighty empire to its knees.

  1. A True Classic
    by Evans Griffin, USA - May 11th 2016

    This is the "Spartacus" or "Ben Hur" of RTS games - vastly superior not only to its contemporaries, but to the more recent additions to its genre as well. Newer Total War titles have "improved" on this title's graphics and options, but they've never matched the perfect balance between large-scale strategy and unit-by-unit tactical simulation of Rome. This isn't a dense, empire building, mechanics-heavy Crusader Kings II-style strategy game, and it's not a mindless go-go-go unit-spamming RTS; it's something between the two, and it occupies that niche with the dominance of a Roman garrison.

    The flaws of the game are worth mentioning, if only for completeness. The "diplomacy" system is as useless as Roman cavalry. The historical accuracy is questionable at best (the three Roman factions are an invention of the designers, for example). And the game becomes a bit of a grind in its middle stages as one's faction expands.

    But these are all minor problems. Are you really looking for good diplomacy in a game called Total War? Historical accuracy is great for documentaries, but I want some War Elephants in my Gallic horde, thank you very much. And if you find yourself complaining about the difficulty of defending and expanding a vast, sweeping empire, isn't that a pretty good problem to have?
