Rome: Total War

The Gamers Temple
4 May 2006
  • Excerpt: The Total War series began in Feudal Japan, passed through Medieval Europe, and has now arrived in Ancient Rome. The gameplay has always been solid, but with every iteration the series has improved upon itself and in Rome: Total War (RTW) it is firing on all cylinders. If you’re a strategy gamer you’ll love the game’s blend of strategic empire building and real-time tactical battles featuring thousands of troops.

Rome Total War

  • Conclusion: Without a doubt the greatest strategy game we'll see in 2004. Rome Total War does so many things in such a spectacular fashion that it's easy to forgive the fact that a multiplayer campaign still hasn't been added to a Total War game.

  • Excerpt: By hook or by conquest, total control of Rome is the aim in Activision's Rome: Total War, latest in the Total War series that started with Shogun: Total War and continued with Medieval: Total War. Now you get to compete for the Title of Emperor of Rome! That is in the grand campaign game. There are also smaller campaigns and individual battles that can be played when time for the long campaign is not available.

Rome: Total War

Game Over Online
20 October 2004
  • Excerpt: Why must we fight? All of this senseless bloodshed and turmoil for what? I’ll tell you for what: a very entertaining game about stabbing people in the faces and then stabbing where their faces used to be until there’s no face-place left to stab. Rome: Total War will come into your house, kick your head in and lay about on your couch all day, that’s how violent and unpredictable it is. Oh, and it’s also a really cool game.

  • Excerpt: strategy – The science and art of military command as applied to the overall planning and conduct of large-scale combat operations. tactics – The military science that deals with securing objectives set by strategy, especially the technique of deploying and directing troops, ships, and aircraft in effective maneuvers against an enemy. It may seem a little trivial, but recognising the difference between these two concepts is key to making a successful game.

Rome: Total War

ActionTrip
23 September 2004
  • Conclusion: Would I recommend this game to everyone? Yes, of course. Any self-respecting strategy gamer should own it. However, the underlining impression that I got is that Creative Assembly hasn't expanded on the core game play that much (there is especially room for improvement left in the turn-based department).
  • Pros: City sieges, awesome sounds and visuals, great soundtrack - just so much more spectacular looking (and sounding) than the previous games;
  • Cons: Path finding and other AI glitches, rather awkward looking turn-based map, turn-based game has room left for improvement.

Rome Total War

GamersHell.com
10 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Creative Assembly has provided the gaming community with yet another gem. Each of the Total War titles has improved upon its predecessor while continuing to challenge the conventions of the strategy genre. In a world littered with mediocre to downright bad strategy games, the Total War series has always distinguished itself as a Titan amongst the mortals.
