Summary: It does not work! $25 and it crashes every time I try to launch it. My computer is only 6 months old and this game will not play on it. Don't waste your money as there is no help section that deals with this issue. No more downloading from Amazon for me. Wasted 2 hours and $25 for nothing. They should rename it Roam as you will spend all of your time roaming around the net trying to find out why it does not work on your computer!
Summary: There are one or two bugs: the most irritating is the famous "tower bug," in which assaulting troops get stuck in their assault tower. The program will sometimes crash, though this can be much reduced by turning off anything on your machine that might issue pop-up notifications. Running without other open windows helps. There are some repeating "battle crashes," in which the game will shut down in the middle of a battle repeatedly.
Summary: I love this game for PC; however, I am currently trying to download this game, yet again on my macbook pro. Every time I try and open the RomeTotalWar.dmg , it goes through the verification stage. Following the "verifying" portion of the bar, a new window populates and states that the disc image cannot be opened. The reason for it is that the "image data corrupted". If anyone else is experiencing the same issues or anything that can possibly help me, please let me know.
I have a used mac book air and it downloaded and ran fine. played for about 3 hours with no issues

Summary: I don't get the big fuss about this game. I was hesitant to buy because a lot of reviews said it crashed or didn't download. It would really be helpful if people mentioned what computer they had. I have a used mac book air and it downloaded and ran fine. played for about 3 hours with no issues, only took 2 hours to download. the game is super fun and reminds me of age of empires. it is slightly complicated but can be mastered pretty easily. Highly recommend.
Summary: Biggest waste of money I ever made. Saying a lot. I know. The game constantly crashes, and if you think you can ever win at it think again. I just deleted it wasn't worth the space it took up on my hard drive. Stick with Civilization if you want a game that lasts forever.
