5.0 out of 5 stars Rome - Totally Great!, 6 Feb 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Rome Total War: Gold Edition (PC DVD) (Video Game)
I decided to buy this having enjoyed the TV programme Time Commanders and now find myself hooked on the game. There was talk with original Rome - Total War of problems installing under XP, I have had no such problems with Gold Edition and have found it extremely stable under XP. The game itself gives you options to Play a Campaign, play Custom Battle, Multiplayer online or LAN and also to play a Historical Battle. In Campaign mode you play one of three Roman Families where the idea is basically to take over Rome and Beyond from the other Families and Factions by moving your forces around a map and conquering towns in order to get money for additional armies and also to gain influence with the Senate prior to taking over. The Historical Battles option may actually be of use in History Lessons in Schools so that pupils are able to see a visual demonstration of the actual battles fought.
Also included on the Single DVD Gold Edition is the Barbarian Invasion expansion pack which puts you in the position of controlling either the Eastern or Western Roman Empire and tasks you with defending your Empire against the invading Barbarian Hordes, there are a number of additional features in this version such as certain units are able to swim and also certain Generals are able to fight battles at Night which adds a new string to the games warbow. All in all this is a great game and comes highly recommended by me.
