    Not a Good Buy

    Rise of Rome really is not an obligation to get. After a while, you get bored of age of empires and this expansion will not help much. Sure, with this, you get many interesting new campaigns and a lot of new units and st... Read Full Review

    A good, but not necessary, expansion. Still worth the buy, though.

    All you campaign freaks! All you scenario designers! Check this out! When you open this up, you think of how great the Roman and Carthaginians will be. Well, to tell you the down-to-earth honest truth, they are th... Read Full Review

    Legionnaires forth, hastati at front rank and hold. Principes reserve, triarii vanguard of morale.........Roma!

    This expansion to the age of empires is excellent!

    The 3 added extra campains are extremely good, but they are a challenge, which I enjoy! I have played it for hours and I found to be really injoyable, exploring the map and finding new islands to explore and find more... Read Full Review
