@Sgthombre Napoleon should been seen more as a stand alone expansion then a entire new game. At least that's how i look at it. Some things changed in Napoleon, but that's mostly on a technical ground then gameplay wise. The only gameplay changes i noticed was that it was more story driven and it gives you a bit of a history lessons about one of the greatest millitairy minds in history. But yeah its not really a new game and Empire was bigger. But for 17 euro's i didn't mind it, i just wanted all the expensions of the others and have a working rome and medieval 2 again :P the rest is a bonus.

@dutchgamer83 Got this, and Empire, and Napoleon. I'm set FOREVER. Napoleon pisses me off though. It's the exact same game as Empire.
@Sgthombre there is steam discount now...you get a total war pack for 17 euro's/dollars. It includes rome total + plus its expensions, medieval 2 plus expensions, empire total war + the dlc and napoleon total + dlc. If you want to buy it, now would be a good time :)
With this expansion, Rome Total War is a complete experience. You build the roman empire and then you can crush it or make the western or easter roman empire expand and prosper. Excelent game.
phantsy16 if theres no enough in the vid review READ the written one, not that much effort And I think i shall pick this up, still playing empire atm but it'll be good to have it there to fiddle with :)
I have been playing the Rome Total War Games for about 3 years. I have played evry total war game exept Empire total war. By far my favorit is this one Barbarian invasion. What it said in the vidio was true this game should only have Rome Total war vetrans beacuse it is dificult.But other than that it is proboly one of the top 5 games i have played.So if u need advice email me at email@example.com
the expansion shows a bunch of new stuff such as playing as the barbarians and/or fighting against em as the mighty romans...this game packs a punch!
Good review. this game has to be THE best RTS of ALL TIME. i didnt like it at first because what the reviewer said: this is for Rome original veterans, and i just instantly jumped into this expansion. so, it was very difficult. Now i have played the original and i think this is an excellent expansion
i got rome and both expansions in one day but im not goin to play the expancions till i finish the original
