Rome: Total War Gold Edition

Inside Mac Games
13 April 2011
  • Excerpt: The setting for the game is the early Roman empire, right before it sets out to conquer its neighbors. You can pick any of the three Roman families to start with initially, but you can only play the non-Roman factions that you completely conquer throughout the campaign. This tends to mean that certain factions will forever be beyond your reach if you keep playing the same faction.

Game Room Rome: Total War Gold Edition

9 April 2010
  • Excerpt: (1 items) Fans of epic strategy games will know there is never a theater of war that is too big, a scale to large, or too many troop types. Developed by The Creative Assembly and ported to the Mac by Feral Interactive, Rome: Total War’s firehose of tactical information may be off-putting to gamers new to the genre, but fans of strategy games will appreciate Total War’s cavernous depths and expansive territories. Rome: Total War originally came out for the PC in 2004.
  • Pros: Epic strategy, Immersive experience
  • Cons: Dated graphics, No naval combat

Rome Total War: Gold Edition

Deaf Gamers
27 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Rome Total War: Gold Edition, an introduction. When The Creative Assembly made Shogun Total War they created a strategy game that broke the mould. The game combined a board game, turn-based, style campaign with real-time combat that allowed you to pause the action and make tactical decisions. The battles allowed you to fight strategically by taking advantage of the seasons and terrain types in a way that hadn't been seen before in a real-time strategy game.

Rome: Total War Gold Edition Review

24 May 2006
  • Excerpt: Rome: Total War was one of the best games of 2005 and one of the best blends of turn based and real time strategy in recent memory. Almost a year after the original release of Rome a superb expansion pack titled The Barbarian Invasions was released, and shortly after that a gold package that combined the two. Rome: Total War concentrates on the experience of conquering Rome and establishing a Roman Empire.

Rome Total War Gold Edition (PC)

14 March 2006
  • Conclusion: Duemila anni di storia romana. Accurato come un libro di storia, curato nella tecnica, ma soprattutto giocabile e divertente nella traduzione dei migliori RTS, Rome: Total War si ripresenta sul mercato in questa edizione doppia. Assieme al gioco base, già di per sé sufficiente a giustificare l'acquisto, per chi ancora non avesse avuto occasione di provarlo, viene presentata anche la prima espansione ufficiale, Barbarian Invasion, che consente al giocatore di seguire...

Rome: Total War GOLD EDITION

5 June 2005
  • Summary: Alter Schwede... pardon, hier ist natürlich "Römer" besser angebracht! Auch nach mehr als einem Jahr kann sich Rome als Strategiereferenz behaupten. Eine derartige Spieltiefe, gepaart mit optisch zwar ein wenig angestaubten, aber unglaublich imposanten Massenschlachten lassen die Herzen von Strategen und Taktikern gleichermaßen höherschlagen.
  • Pros: macht süchtig!, mehr Spieltiefe dank Addon, epische Massen-schlachten, bombastischer 5.1 Sound, Strategiekarte mit nahezu unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten, guter Einstieg
  • Cons: misslungener Multiplayermodus, Strategiekarte nicht drehbar, keine Seeschlachten im Hauptprogramm
