Rome: Total War - Barbarian Invasion review

  • Perfect blend of strategy & tactics
  • Glitchy gameplay is gone
  • Even bigger battles, now at night
  • Cities changed, but no new map
  • Few historical battles
  • Historical context is very thin

But attempting the single-player campaign mode as the Roman Empire, especially the West, will present the greatest challenge to experienced players. Settlements are in revolt, supply lines are long and upkeep costs are high for a decaying army stretched thin across the frontier. Even the most expert players will feel embattled and back on their heels for many turns. You can turn it around, but the odds are nearly insurmountable. Can you change history? If you liked the original Rome: Total War - it's worth finding out.
