Still A Good Gamesaroph | Feb. 6, 2014 | Review of Rome: Total War
I purchased Rome: Total War years ago but never gave it a fair try since I was already too enamored with Medieval II: Total War (the following game in the TW series). I just recently got it again and decided to give it another go, and I'm glad I did.
While without mods it may not be nearly as pretty as later games, it has aged very well in terms of gameplay. It takes some getting used to if you've played the other games in the series first (either older or newer than Rome), but it's well worth the small investment. After starting it up I just couldn't stop until I'd won a campaign, and now I'm tempted to go on to conquer the known world.
