4.0 out of 5 stars Barbarians at the Gates 5 July 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Barbarian Invasion is the first expansion pack to the highly acclaimed Rome: Total War (the second being Alexander). The expansion picks up a few centuries after the original 'republic' campaign in Rome: Total War. Now the Roman Empire has split into two parts, and it's up to you to help defend the empire as waves after waves of barbarian tribes invade Europe.

The game now features ten new playable factions: The Western and Eastern Roman Empires, the Huns, Goths, Franks, Saxons, Alemmani, Sassanids, Sarmatians and Vandals. A number of non-playable factions are included as well, among which are the Romano-Britons, Lombards, Burgundians, Slavs and Berbers etc.
These help add some variety into the game play, for instance, if you play as the Saxons and you conquer a certain amount of Roman towns in Britain, then the Romano-British will appear to wrestle them back from you.

The single biggest feature of the expansion is the ability for the Barbarian tribes (but not including the Saxons) to become hordes. This means they can abandon their settlements in search of a new homeland. By selecting the horde function you can recruit every male villager into a soldier, turning your faction into a formidable military force.

Every faction has its own strengths and weaknesses, and they have varying degrees of difficulty. For instance it is rather easy to complete the game as the Huns, but very difficult to win as the Western Roman Empire, as you'd expect.
One of the other new features is religion, as the Roman Empires now have Pagan and Christian cities. This means having to perform a difficult balancing act - send a Christian to govern a Pagan city (or vice versa) and you'll end up with rioting or even a rebellion on your hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great expansion 15 April 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is my favourite total war game, and a great addition to the rome series. I actually prefer this to the orginal because the romans aren't as powerful, it's more balanced. I also think the period of rome's decline and fall is very intresting and this is a great way to experiance it. I would recommned this to all total war players!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality 11 May 2014

Old game but still such quality enjoyment. Must admit the main reason I have the games is for the mods, but nonetheless vanilla games (unmodded) are still great fun and strategical.

5.0 out of 5 stars good expansion game 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase
before you purchase be aware that you need rome total war, this will not work with out this. if you have downloaded patch 1.2 for rome, then this game will not work, as it downloads patch 1.3. this much improves rome, makes the interface and graphics very like total war medieval 2, the expansion allows you play as various barbarian tribes at the end of the roman empire, or the now split roman empire, east or west. the horde option for most of the tribes is good fun and diplomacy is key if playing as one of the roman empires. works fine with win 7 home 64 bit, a good add on at a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for fans of Total War 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase
I have moved on in recent times and got into the PS3 gaming experience. I wish Total War or similar was available on PS3. I found the game in a cupboard, played it again and bought this expansion pack. This game is awesome and I would recommend... the PS3 is now an expensive ornament!

The game and its expansion(s) are from some time ago, but they remains very enjoyable.
Still able to cause the dreaded "just one more turn" syndrome! :-)
