Rome: Total War

Fragland
28 May 2012
  • Excerpt: We’re the year 270 Before Christ, although nobody knew back then a certain Jesus Christ would be born, so we can say we’re at the cradle of the Roman civilization. Somewhere in a tiny little village at the Tiber some people suddenly got it in their mind: “Hey, we’re pretty good here, let’s make a...

Rome: Total War

Game Over Online
26 September 2006
  • 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.

  • 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.

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...
  • 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.

Giving you room to Rome

Web Wombat
30 April 2006
  • Conclusion: Like ice-cold lemonade on a hot day, Rome is the year's best strategy game. Anyway, even if it wasn't, how can you go past a game that lets you set pigs on fire and hurl them at your opponent?
