I used to love playing ROME, and this version takes Total War to a new level. The joys of massed artillery gouging holes in closed formations… What's not to like?
Awesome, with bells and whistles!

Intro movie -8/10 Got me excited and made me want to play Rain Animation -6/10 Drawings -7/10 Character Anim. -6/10 Battle control -8/10 Faily good but hard to get the characters where you want them when you want them there.. Only becomes issue when in a 1-1 ratio, evenly balanced fight when control becomes the key factor to winning. I feel they could have made the characters a bit more intelligent, easier to control, and easier to tell what is what on the field.
originality -7/10 Sounds -7/10 A lot of the guns, ships, etc sound the same, needs more variety Length of play 7/10, lots of add ons and other missions, but the main game isnt that long
Buy it on sale, it isnt worth 40 bucks. 30 dollars its a solid game, under 30 you definitley need to buy it, under 20 you are nuts to not give it a try. Thanks for reading.
