Rome: Total War review

  • Unmatched battle size and scope
  • Wide range of factions and units
  • Excellent balance of gameplay
  • Sometimes silly enemy AI
  • Plenty of glitches
  • Big battles will tax your hardware

This flexibility lets you focus your attention on what you find the most fun in the game, and makes Rome very accessible for gamers who are new to the genre. For people who loved Gladiator, fans of top-shelf strategy games and history aficionados of any stripe - all roads lead to Rome.
