  • I like the battle mode, especially with Romans, but it is far from easy

      Rome Total War is a mix of two different styles, Real Time Battles and Turn Based Management. In campaign mode, you have to lead a faction (to start off, you can only control three different roman ones, but if you defeat a faction in the campaign, you can play as them in the campaign (unless they are one of the

      unplayable factions)).

      You have to manage settlements and armies.

      If two opposing armies clash, the game changes to real time battles.

      What happens in this, affects directly what happens on the campaign map.

      I like the battle mode, especially with Romans, but it is far from easy.

      In fact, the whole game, even on easy, is very hard, and you ...


      • need to think lots.

        My favourite units have to be the Praetorian guards, or the arcane, or the Carthigian Elephants.

        The game is not totally historically accurate, but I would hazard a guess and say that it is at least eighty percent historically accurate.

        There are two types of factions, civilized factions (Rome, Greece etc) or uncivilized factions (Gauls and

        British etc).

        Civilized factions have bonuses over uncivilized factions, as their cities can grow much bigger, build stone walls, have better unit, but uncivilized factions have the advantage of numbers, barbaric chants and pure madness.

        This is not a game for people who want to just kill people, this is a very thinkey game, and it will take you a long time to complete just one campaign.
