    The country shaped like a boot goes to war.

    The folks at CA have certainy outdone themselves this time, to say the very least. They go from making great games to bloody near perfect one. Yeah, as far as I can see, Rome is perfect. You won't be noticing the AI prob... Read Full Review

    Although taking me a while to get used to this game, Seeing as how i'd already played every other total war game, I'd been waiting for ages for this game to actually be in my possession. I now constantly play this game. ... Read Full Review

    Look no further

    Unlike most strategy games that don't factor in things like moral, fatigue, and overall actual strategy in battles, RTW makes massive real-time battles that far exceed that of any other game. It also has unparalleled ci... Read Full Review

    Amazing! ROMA VICTOR!

    This game pushes back the boundaries of real time gaming. The campaign map, battlefields and multiplayer are awesome. Considering the quality of Shogun and Medieval Total war , Rome certainly stands out. It was highly... Read Full Review

    A classic game.....

    RTW is an amazing game. There is so much to do once you start playing it. After you have played it for 10 or so hours you realize that this game isnt as big and complex as it seems. This game is fun in all respects. Th... Read Full Review

    If you like strategy games, real time of turn based, or have any interest in ancient history, i'd highly reccomend this.

    I'll start by saying that Rome: Total War is the first game in the Total War series that i've bought. I've played Medieval and Shogun, but not enough to make an accurate comparison between them and Rome. Gameplay: I... Read Full Review
