Summary: I bought this game for my son. He really enjoys playing RTW. Only con is the size of the file which is very large in comparison to other programs we use. My computer does gets a little sluggish after he plays this game.
Summary: Anyone who owns or is buying this game should immediately download the patches for Rome Total Realism, a free mod which completely rejigs this game for the better. While it doesn't improve the graphics it makes the units and factions much more historically accurate (no more made up Roman SAS style...
Summary: This game was really an amazing game, great for older computers. Sounds great and graphics are pretty good, seeing that it operates on a win 98. If you have a good amount of times on your hand this will definitely get that time off. All in all it's a pretty good pc game. [...]
Summary: Or in my case, 144 turns... The first thing I noticed was the Roman soldier on the cover doesn't look particularly intimidating. Rather, it looks like he zipped up his chain mail too quickly after using the loo. The second thing I noticed was that there were three installation disks - what a pain!
Summary: This game is awesome. There are a lot of these war games out there where your entire army is represented by 5 or 10 people. Not here! 10-60 troops per unit + 20 units maximum per army + as many armies as you can fit in a given area = a heck of a lot of fun!
Summary: Rome: Total War is a landmark advancement in RTS games. The compelling battles and intricate stategy engine ensure that this game is guaranteed value. It is very difficult to go back to early 3D RTS games such as AOE2 after playing a game like this.
Summary: I didn't have trouble installing the game and I can run it at max colors and resolution without issues. Games load relatively fast and the program exits fast. The game reminds me of civilization with a twist.
Summary: I have been playing this game since 4 months and its a great game. This game is nothing but reality. First of all you have to start from the core. You will be given few villagers and a town center. You need to assign the villagers to collect food, gold, wood and stone.
Summary: Though I've never played any game in the total war series, I enjoy strategy games and found the excellent reviews for RTW more than enough to convince me to buy this game. Over all, I found it very enjoyable but with a few cons that put me back a bit.
