Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Three great Rome Total War games all in one!

Rome Total War

Storm clouds gather over Europe, Asia and North Africa as mighty armies march forward in Rome: Total War. Command the greatest forces of the ancient world, including the Roman Legions, Carthage and Gaul; lay siege to civilisations using powerful war engines; and decimate your enemies using special units like ferocious war dogs, armoured elephants or Scythed chariots. In Rome: Total War the most epic, cinematic real-time 3D battles ever seen in a game come to life with awe-inspiring graphics. Vast armies are led by brilliant generals such as Hannibal, leader of the Carthaginians and Julius Caesar, Rome's greatest general and leader. The mightiest armies and the most brilliant commanders of ancient times clash in an epic war game only Total War can create.


An all new campaign map extends the Rome: Total War experience further Eastward than ever before, taking you into Macedonia and the Persian Empire. A host of new content includes four new factions and 60 all new units such as Alexander's Phalangists. Six new historical battles offer you the chance to experience Alexander's key clashes and a redesigned campaign game forces you to press ever onward or risk failing to match Alexander's ferocious pace of conquest.


A shadow falls across the Roman world. It is 363 AD and the last Emperor of the unified Rome is dead. His successors now rule a divided Empire. Beyond the frontiers of the sundered Empire new enemies are lurking. The barbarians are at the gates in this official expansion pack for Rome: Total War!

A brand new campaign game.
10 new playable factions - including the Huns, Franks, Saxons, Goths and both Roman Empires!
100+ new units with their own strengths, weapons and abilities, including Schiltrom and Shieldwall formations, swimming and axe-throwing.
Barbarian Hordes - march your entire people in search of a new homeland. You were there for Rome's glory. Be there for Rome's fall

    5.0 out of 5 stars A true classic 23 Feb. 2009
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    The review giving this only 2 stars is missing the point - Rome is a far more complex and intricate beast compared to the basic 'tank rush' strategies that generally can win the day in something like C&C.

    To add to this you have the Civilization-esque conquest element to the game. To compare this game to something like C&C is like doing the same with an orange and tomato - both very nice if you like that kind of thing but in no way substitutes for one another!

    I like both games incidentally however would say Rome:TW is a far more involving game. The more you put in, the more you'll enjoy it. The Alexander expansion is worth doing only after completing the original game. I found Barbarian Invasion not quite to my liking however that again, is personal taste - the game itself works well and adds a different perspective to those who are hungry for more.

    At the current price, this is a bargain to get the complete Rome:TW set. Highly recommended.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Rome Total War - a newbe's point of view 21 May 2009
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    The game - great fun - horribly addictive! It sucks you in - I've sat down to play "a quick session", and lost track of time - next thing I knew it was time to go to bed, and I was in the middle of Gaul!

    The good points: Fairly easy to learn play mechanisms, lots of help available.

    Areas for improvement - a map of the world/province bounderies would have been helpful (this is not included in the on-disk manual, and the only ones I can find on the internet are for the "Total Realism" modded version, not the basic game)

    Overall assessment - good.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Worth revisiting 9 Sept. 2009
    Verified Purchase
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    I've played every new Total War game, practically on the day they've come out, and I have to say that Rome:TW really does bear up when revisited.

    I picked up this bundle (which includes the original game and two expansion packs) on a whim, what with my original discs long lost. Even though the graphics don't inspire the same awe as they used to, this game is phenomenally good fun. It arguably still has the most accessible gameplay from the whole series, and the little historical details and the sense of period are very strong: the game can be genuinely educational even as you reshape history.

    The main campaign mode, where you take one of Rome's great houses out into the Mediterranean world and then turn back to claim the title of emperor, is more finely balanced and exciting than in any other long-term game of this sort, perfectly balancing structure with free-form gameplay.

    The AI, which has been an ongoing issue in the TW series, is at its peak here. On 'hard', the campaign map AI will be suitably aggressive.

    Small problems were ironed out in the next episode - Medieval 2: Total War - such as the fact that actual combat can be over very quickly in this game, with morale playing perhaps too important a role. But this is nit-picking. Rome: Total War is years old now, but remains an eminently playable strategy game.

    To conclude: it's better than Empire.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Rome Anthology 24 Nov. 2009
    By M. Wood
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    Even though this game is now a few years old it is still a great game. The tutorial at the start of the game will give you a good grounding for the future battles to come. It's not just about the battles, though, there is also a large element of management to the game, in maintaining and building the cities you capture. Overall a fantastic game that will give you many weeks of play for reasonably small amount of cash.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Game 29 Mar. 2013
    Verified Purchase
    An iconic game that sets the bar for strategy games on the PC and its a long standing series on PC which is thoroughly enjoyable and provides hours upon hours of fun.

    The game takes place as it says on the case in the times when Rome was the dominant force in europe, starting factions are Roman but as you take out other factions some become unlockable such as Gauls, Britannia, Carthage and Selucids with powerfull elephant units and even the mighty Greece with Spartans!!

    As you play through the game you have to ensure your cities are kept happy by providing entertainment and law and altering tax rates in order to stop rebellions, each faction has various different units and strengths and weaknesses meaning you must change your strategies depending on the faction you are playing.

    As you play through the game historic events unfold and you are made aware of it such as the eruption at etna and egypt discovering glass etc so the game also serves to be educational when learning about the Roman era.

    Overall 100% recommend this game.
