Well.....reviewing this game is hard. For it's time, it was without a doubt one of, if not the greatest, strategy games of all time. However, comparing it to newer Total Wars,(except for ROME II, that is something else entirely) it lacks in several things, notably historical accuracy, diplomacy, and managing your government. For one, in historical accuracy, there are multiple nations(like Gaul, Spain, Greece, etc.) that are unified nations even though in real life they were a divided people, with seperate clans, city states, etc. but for some reason CA mashed a lot of city states and tribes together to form unified nations, which is complete bogus. Also, in historical accuracy, Egypt is not Hellenistic at ALL. They still have traditional Egyptian Paganism as their religion, and their units are traditional Egypitan ones, even though Egypt was now practically a Middle Eastern copy of Greece thanks to Alexander the Great. In diplomacy, there are very few options(some examples are trade rights, allaince, map info, etc.) and, therefore, made diplomacy lose it's immersion. Finnaly, there is governemnt. For Roman factions, the Republic government is fairly adequately displayed, but in general, there really is no "government system" like in Empire Total War, although there is a family tree where you can set the faction heir, adding a bit of spice to government. If we put those those things aside, you will find a true classic of a strategy game-and I'm pretty sure most people here would agree with me. In a time where graphics made people look like horrible mutants, AI was as smart as your neighborhood stray dog, and strategy games lacked a lot of actual strategy, this game was revolutionary. The graphics, although considered inferior to today's games, probably looked like real life to a lot of players back in 2004....me included. The jump from the previous Total War, Medieval, to Rome's graphics was absoultely stunning. The AI (which, to be honest, is not very much smarter than the neighborhood stray) was practically as smart as Albert Einstein for players back then. Diplomacy, while lacking in true immersion, added a whole new level of strategy to games, as this system was pretty much only used in previous Total Wars, and even then it was really basic. And government, while being very basic, also adds to the strategy of the game, as you scramble to find a sutiable heir for your glorious (or, more often than not, not-so-glorious) empire. Speaking of empires, there are 20 factions, with about half of them playable, half not playable. Technically, there is a 21st faction, the Rebels. The rebels not only represent actual rebels, which I am perfectley ok with, but they also represent "minor factions" that CA left out of the game, which is kinda sloppy to me. However, all-in-all, the campaign is amazing. Now..on to battles. It is not possible to manage a nation without going to war, and this game certainly does not oppose that fact. You will end up in countless battles, usually with random weaklings who think they are gangstas and are better than you, but you will often find yourself matched against a worthy foe. If it is a land, battle, you can do one of three things-Fight the battle out on a battle map, have the computer auto resolve the battle, or retreat. For naval battles, you only have the auto resolve option. For the battle map, you and everyone involved-whheter or not they are on your side-will command various units that can be trained in cities if you have the proper buildings. You command these soldiers to victory-or defeat-against the enemy. I personally belive CA did a great job on the battle mehcnaic of the game

If you like Total War games, strategy games in general, video games in general, or if you like life, then buy this game. Even if you don't like life, still buy it. This is a true classic of a strategy game, and you would be a fool to pass on it.

Overall, 9/10.

The best in the series, period. If you're going to get a game, get this one. It's worth way more than $10.

Despite that the game is already 10 years old, Rome: Total War is, in my opinion, one of the best games in the Total War franchise. It doesn't have the best graphics, but hey, it's a game released in 2004, who cares about the graphics?

The gameplay... ah, f**k it, try it yourself. Just trust me, it's worth a go!

Rome Is amazing in every respect, add in the darthmod series and one of its biggest flaws is negated somewhat (its kind of old and it's age shows) but storming Carthage with an enormous army of roman troops is something I could do again and again. Its a measly ten dollars WHATYA WAITIN FER DIS UN BE A WINNER IN MY BOOK

It is a very realistic game and it can become very addictive (if you get used to the controls).
The only bad thing about this game is that the controls get a little getting used too. After that it is a very fun and addictive game. Highly recommend.

10\10 (Life changing)
While my steam play is only about 10 hours, I used to play this game back when you would goto the store to buy a computer game (or the fifth grade). That being said, I've easily put hundreds of hours into this game over the years.
This game was the first of the total wars I've played and stands second to maybe the newer versions of total war games.
Smooth interactions on the campain and battle maps make navigation and stratgy easy. The A.I. can be easy at times but ramp up the difficulty and you may find yourself in a tricky spot during your campain. The game offers many different factions with a big yet easy to follow diplomacy setting and notifications to allow you to build up your own faction.
Today the Mulitplayer is acomplishable but unless you have a freind that plays you probably wont find another player.
The steam version is up to date as you would expect and is a great and cheap way to break anyone into the total war experience without beating an older PC to death with the high demands of shogun 2 (awesome game as well) and Rome 2 (which was dissapointing).
RECOMMNEDED.

Still the same pros&cons as the rest of the Total War series : halway between strategy game and cinema, entertaining but inadapted to challenging objectives.
Note that this game has lots of user mods, with a community which is still lively. Therefore this is an interesting alternative to Rome II or any more recent Total War title if your computer sucks, if you're poor, or if you just don't like their new engine (I don't). The price to pay in term of features and gameplay richness is minimal.

Where to start with Rome Total War? First released back in September 2004 the game recently reached it's tenth anniversary. I've played it on and off since release and the recent anniversary prompted me to go back and play through it again. It's a game that mostly stands up to the test of time for me and well worth playing today. I didn't play the Barbarian Invasion expansion included in the Steam edition as it's quite a distinct entity that should be reviewed in it's own right.

Like all games in the Total War series there are two elements; the campaign map where you manage your empire, build cities, recruit units, move armies etc and the battle map, where you fight battles in real time. This gives the game some great depth and whilst you can auto-resolve battles this can be a bit hit and miss and you'll want to fight them yourself to get the best results. The Imperial Campaign is the main game mode where you can choose from a number of different factions and play through either a short or long campaign with prescribed victory conditions and different difficulty settings. There is a decent tutorial to ease you into things and plenty of advice is available throughout both with the optionn to turn it off for veterans.

The Imperial Campaign is backed up by being able to fight custom battles where you choose the map, faction etc and Historical Battles which recreate a number of famous battles of the era such as Hannibal's invasion of Italy and the Battle of the Teutoberg Forest. You can also play online against other players but this wasn't something I did.

The main campaign has a good deal of depth and each of the factions has different styles, units, cities and starting points which offer a wide variety of challenge. Playing as the Romans is the initial starting point and they are divided into three factions which compete against other and have some additional mechanics to account for including the Senate of Rome, the Marius Reforms and some other suprises which I won't spoil. Rome also generally has the strongest units and buildings which can make things somewhat straightforward for an experienced player. However a lot of the late game units of other factions more than match them and playing the campaign as Eygpt, Carthage, the Britons or others is very enjoyable.

The mechanics of the campaign map are very broad and offer a wide variety of tactical options to pursue; bribery, assassination and spreading plagues amongst them. I played through on the very hard settings which I'd reccomend any veteran Total War player to do and the campaign offered a good challenge with interesting scenarios and incidents along the way. Whilst my progress was steady I wasn't able to steamroll the AI into the ground within a few turns. I did play as Eygpt who are one of the easier non Roman factions to play but still a challenge later in the game.

The battle map is probably the slightly weaker side of the game and whilst some battles, particularly sieges, can be a bit difficult or frustrating, most are straightforward affairs if you have assembled a balanced army and have a relatively comprehensive grasp of the tactics to use. However the various factions armies all have different strengths or weaknesses and there isn't the rock, paper, scissors situation you see in some games. The Roman armies have the strongest armies as a general rule of thumb but other factions e.g. Eygpt, Germania have some very good units too and what works with one may not work at all with another.

I've not mentioned performance or graphics at all as the game is ten years old and there generally shouldn't be any issues nor will it look fantastic.

I'd also take a moment to mention the additional content available online from Europa Barborum and a couple of other sites. These add a huge amount to the game and are well worth a look if you want to take things further after playing the main game.

Overall I'd definetely reccomend playing this if your a fan of the Total War series and I also feel its a good starting point for the series as whole. Those interested in the era itself will certainly find it enjoyable.

Years of preparing, extensive training, all the lands blacksmiths put to work crafting metals for the valiant warriors on the field all worked up to this day.....this battle of monarchs to decide who has control over rome, and soon the world. As the soldiers are given speeches of modivation, you hear battle cries and the clanging of swords and shields together "We will win or die! We fight for supremacy, freedom and for the good of Rome and its people! Now bring your talents and skills to work and we will overtake the great city of Rome!". The siege towers and battering rams make their way to the stone walls, whilst being under heavy projectile suppression and the mighty legionarres follow closely behind. Many lives are lost on the way to the behemoth they call Rome, but finally the soldiers noble efforts are rewarded! The massive towers hit the walls and the soldiers begin their valiant climb to honour.

The legionarres are now at the top of the tower as silence stikes the crowd, mentally preparing the soldiers for a struggle to capture the walls. The commander cuts the rope binding the bridge to the tower......*THUMP*......the bridge is down. "For Rome!" shouts the commander as his men file onto the walls and directly into the fray. The Soldiers could already hear the battles happening on the other quadrants of the walls.....shouts of pain and bloodlust, sword striking sword, and the occasional wail of men falling off of the walls. The Commander finnaly jumps into the battle and downs two opposing legionarres, "The battle is going perfectly" he thought "Rome is ours!". The commader strikes down yet another legionarre, but suddenly he feels a certain unexplainable.......nothing....... he tries to ignore it, but its spreading. He looks down at his legs and sees blood dripping from the inside fo his chestplate, "Oh no, not this, not now, anything but this" he wailed in his head as he dropped to his knees........he had been slain. His soldiers were distraught over the loss of their beloved commander but kept fighting, to avenge his death. As the last opposing soldier fell to roman steel, the soldiers loosed a shout of triumph, heard througout the city to let it be known that the walls had been captured. Soon similar shouts emitted from the other sides of the walls. Victory! but it wasnt over yet.

Hundreds of soldiers piled into the keep and started climbing down to the streets where the true clash of honour and virtue. Soon enough the soldiers were on the streets and marching twoards the emperors palace when suddenly thunder struck the surface......the veteran warriors of rome knew that sound all too well.......a cavalry charge! "Brace yourselves!" shouted the General as horses and spears collided with sword and shield and made a bitter crumpling sound as the rookie soldiers were crushed before they could turn their shields to the stampede of mounted warriors. The clashing of metal upon metal followed, due to their superior numbers the infantry cut down the cavalry quickly. the incoming infantry of rome watched as the remaining legionarres and cohorts filed in to the emperors palace to defend all they had left. By the time the soldiers reached the palace the doors were barred. The soldiers smashed up against the massive doors repeatedly and eventally they burst open!

"Charge!!" Deafening roars from the charging legionarres fill the sky as they clash together violently. The sounds of battle ring in many soldiers ears, swords clanging, shields meeting swords, swords meeting armor. the front line of legionary cohorts thins as the attackers press onwards to capture the throne room. A bloody hellacious battle follows as the cohorts are wiped out and the attacking legions are met with the bulk of the enemy troops. Plentiful ammounts of casualties are sustained as both sides weaken from exhaustion. The final soldiers fight for everything they know, for everything they want, and for everything they need. The last soldier falls, and the emporer is left to the wrath of the mighty general. "This city is ours now. you fought well and you are a worthy adversary.....just not worthy enough to retain Rome" Were the final words spoken as the quivering Emperor is struck down with one mighty blow. The city of Rome was overtaken.

11/10
