Amazon.co.uk Review

With the glory days of the real-time strategy game now nothing but a distant memory, Activision’s Total War series has come to totally dominate the strategy market and Rome is such a huge leap above the already impressive Medieval and Shogun titles that the series has almost become a mini-industry in itself.

Set, fairly obviously, during the hey day of the first Roman Empire, the game gives you total control over your own faction with the game once again split between a turn-based strategic world map and real-time tactical battles. The former allows you to build and maintain armies and buildings, but also gives increased control over diplomacy and trade--elements that were largely overlooked in previous titles.

The real draw of the game though is the tactical battles which are now displayed using some quite staggering 3D graphics that can see up to 10,000 separate warrior in battle at one time. With units ranging from elephants and inflammable pigs to centurions and escaped slaves just watching the battles unfold is as epic as any Hollywood blockbuster. What’s perhaps most impressive about the game is that controlling such huge numbers of soldiers is actually surprisingly easy with a simple point-and-click interface making everything as smooth as possible.

Rome: Total War is one of those rare breed of games that is largely impossible to fault. In technical and gameplay terms it gets everything right and unless you have a pathological hatred of strategy games this is easily one of the best PC games ever made. --David Jenkins

5.0 out of 5 stars History in the Making 1 Sep 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The greatest game in historical strategy, roll playing great Roman leaders and fighting historical battles. The senates orders are not made to follow but can be helpful, their commands can be from taking a city to recruiting a unit of mercenaries. Destroying factions is a sure way to get the senate on your side and to become more reliable as well as helping the defence of your people.

I would recommend this game to anybody who is interested in Roman history or enjoys strategy gaming experiences. It is suitable for older children as well as adults and provides real escapism, you become totally pulled into the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Strategy Game 4 Aug 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played this game for 4 years now. When it was released, there were a awful lot of bugs. Now, they are all patched and nicely done but there is one big thing I have to tell you at the end.

You do need a good system in order to play this game impressively. The minimum requirements is 1 Ghz and 256 Ram but I recommend roughly about 2.5Ghz with 1 to 2 Gb of Ram in order to play it decently. (if there is video card, 512mb is better)

You are given 3 factions at the beginning. All Rome(Julia, Brutii and Scipii). But, later on, when you completed the game(took all lands), you can play other european factions as well such as Greeks, Pontus..etc.

Basically, You have to conquer Europe with your roman troops. In the Campaign map, you have to place your soldiers on certain places and whenever you encounter enemy or take the enemy settlement, the battle screen appears(the time to engage). Looking at Roman Legionaries all lined(formed) up with reflection and sunshine is awesome here. This is a strategy game so you've got to think how you attack enemies in order to win. the total units that general can hadle is about 2500 and a bit over. War elephants and Egyptian Chariots were excellent and very interesting to see in the battle field. Big scale and dramatic game. (you also have to build up your settlements)

Music, Graphics and effects are all good. No complaints here. Worth having if you like Strategy game(such as Age of Empires). Certainly not designed for less patient players as it gets nervous and frustrating later on. Come on you are Conquering whole Europe with Roman Legions!

Now, the bad thing. This is a big program mistake that the Creative Assembly made in the game(which I found many times).

5.0 out of 5 stars Hail Rome! 4 Aug 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Nearly ten years ago I remember playing Age of Empires. I really enjoyed playing it, and I imagined how much greater the game could be if it was in 3D, with the option to view the battles from the ground.
When Shogun was released in 2000, I was really hoping that the Creative Assembly were going to follow up with a Roman Period game, but I imagined that they wouldn't.

I was therefore very surprised to discover that in 2004 they were going to release this game. In the four years that have followed, Rome: Total War still stands as one of my favourite games, and one that I still play sporadically to this day.

The game puts you in command of the Romans just as they have finished the conquest of Italy in 280 BC. You have a choice of three Republican families to control: the Julii, who must deal with the Gauls and Germans; the Brutti, who are at loggerheads with the Greeks and Macedonians, and the Scipii, who are engaged in a war with the trading superpower of Carthage. This set up might not be a realistic depiction of Roman history, but does present you with some interesting choices.

Your mission is to expand the Empire's borders at any cost. Every once in a while you are given mission by the Roman Senate, which gives you bonuses in the forms of soldiers, money or titles. Eventually when you become too powerful, the Senate and the other two Roman families will oppose you, throwing you into a turbulent civil war. You must triumph over the senate so that you can finally achieve your goal of becoming Emperor of Rome.

Once you have achieved this goal then a number of other ancient factions are unlocked for you to play. These include the Greeks, Egyptians, Parthians, Britons, Germans, Seleucids, Carthaginians and Gauls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Formidable. 22 Aug 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's just a classic game all round. A magnificaent blend of Strategy, war, management and Roman style politics. A true great of the Total War series. The campaigns are so fantastic and enthralling: nothing is as satisfying as building your own Roman empire (unless it's seeing your classy assasin strike down the enemy general just before battle). The battles are awe inspiring: especially the sieges and river crossings.

The only down side is there isn't a 2 player mode which is surprising as it is a turn based game. This however is not worth taking off a star because this game should be remembered as the defining TBS.
96/100: because of no multiplayer mainly

5.0 out of 5 stars God-like. 9 Jun 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There's one thing to say about Rome: Total War - it's an amazing game, simple as that.

Now I just have to pad the review out a bit...

When you start out the game, you're straight in with your Roman faction (the Julii, Brutii or Scipii - depending on where you want to start and who you want to war with first), managing your cities, keeping down the factions that war with you, and fulfilling the wishes that the Senate put upon you. Later on, a Civil War will see you aim to take control of Rome itself, as well as fight off the other Roman factions - which is a big step up from the likes of Gaul.

The battles, of course, are the game's killer app - you can be your own battlefield general, marching over your enemies, planting ambushes, or turning a defeat into victory (this is before taking sieges into account).

However, where the game steps above the regular is that you can unlock other factions to use, either by defeating them in the game or by completing it (50 settlements and Rome is the aim), and then a new dimension is opened: you can use Greece, Carthage, Egypt - all of which have different methods in battle and troops, even city structures, which broadens the experience completely. After all, you can steamroll your way to victory with a Roman faction, but can you do the same with Gaul? True, some factions aren't unlockable without a hack (Macedon being the most notable), but there's so much in the game that keeps you hooked.
