    This review speaks to both Rome and Barbarian Invasion. There are some differences, but the gameplay is essentially the same. I'm a long time fan of strategy war games going all the way back to the...

    The expansion Barbarian Invasion brings some new features to R:TW. But there's not much in the expansion pack.
