This game is amazing, that simply said. Yeah I understand, it's almost ten years old, but when did graphics ever matter? What it lacks in that department it makes up for in gameplay and sheer depth, and I don't know if you'll agree with me on this one, but is it just me that's thinking the Total War games are losing their charm with every new realese? I mean, you saw Empire, and sure, CA had the excuse of a new engine, but then they realesed that absolute mess that was Rome II (and I always thought the sequels were supposed to be better) I was appalled at what I was seeing, and henceforth opted never to purchase it.
Rome I is (in my opinion) the
greatest Total War game made, and one of the best strategy games I've ever played. The amount of detail that CA put into the game is incredible, and better still, installing DarthMod to your game ever more makes the playing experience one to remember. Sure, the A.I is ♥♥♥♥ing horrible, but that never bothered me (just made Rome easier to capture). I can remember once, I had a small force of perhaps five-hundred professional, highly trained and disciplined Legionaries with me, to defend against an army of over three-thousand mindless barbarians. It was these battles that made the game so enjoyable, the sheer tension in the middle of a pitched battle, when neither side show signs of winning, is it going to be yours? Or the enemy's? And aside from the few small skirmishes between armies, when you give your opponent time to assemble a massive force, and you ride out to meet that force with your own, it's a ♥♥♥♥ing bloodbath (serious, the amount of corpses left on the sand was immense). As I've mentioned before, the battles are intense, oh, and, did I mention that the battles were intense?
With the expansions being "Alexander" and "Barbarian Invasion", these further build upon the gameplay. Offering you to play as the young Greek King as he forges his mighty path of blood and conquest against the Persians for control. Or giving you the chance to save the crumbling Roman Empire in a last attempt to drive out the hordes of invading Huns and Goths, and several other European barbarian tribes.
I myself, never played much of the Alexander expansion, I've only sunk as little as a few hours into it. As for Barbarian Invasion however, that, that is a completely different story. I thoroughly enjoyed this expansion to the already great game.
That said. Rome I is a great game, one I have played for hours on end, and was never bored with it.
I give this game a 9.5/10
