A true classic
on 23 February 2009
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.
