Welcome to Rome – Welcome to War.
Two world dominating games in one! Uniting multi-award winning Rome Total War and its official expansion pack, Barbarian Invasion, you must guide history's greatest armies to victory in a game of epic real-time warfare, empire building, politics and treachery.
Play as one of three great Roman families, whose thirst for power will stop at nothing. This the world of Hannibal, Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and a thousand others. This is a world of soldiers, gladiators, tyrants, monsters and fools. It's a rich, exciting world, awaiting a conqueror – you! You must use military genius to build an empire that stretches across Europe and Africa. Finally march on Rome to seize control of the greatest empire in the world. Then in Barbarian invasion either defend it or lead a Barbarian horde and bring the once mighty empire to its knees.
Experience real-time battles – Use innovative battle tactics in battles with up to 10,000 soldiers on-screen at once.
Command and build your campaigns – Balance economic, civil, religious and military power in the century-spanning campaign.
Learn from the best – Fight alongside or against history's greatest leaders such as Julius Caesar, Spartacus, and Hannibal to expand or destroy the Roman Empire.
Lay siege with signature weapons and abilities – Turn the tables against the Romans as Attila the Hun, the fearsome Saxons, and other savage factions in the Barbarian Invasion expansion pack.

If Rome 2 has disappointed you, pick this up. The graphics may be dated, but this is still an amazing game. Whats more, its complete, no having to buy 50 dlc just to get the full game. There are a ton of mods, from mods such as Rome Total Realism that make the game better to the excellent LOTR mod The Fourth Age. There are plenty of factions to choose from, all with unique unit rosters. The battles are epic, not like the arcade style Rome 2 battles. Overall this is an amazing game, well worth the price. Its half the price of Rome 2 and a thousand times more enjoyable.
I love this game. Its what got me into the Total War series. Lots of different units and different races/factions so there are lots of different strategies. This was the height of the Total War games I think. The newest one RTW2 nickel and dimes you for every little faction and is still bug ridden. The best part about this game is that now its available on Mac!!! I have some friends who only own Apple computers so now they can join in on the multiplayer!
