Old but the Rome
on July 23, 2007
Now i know there're many total war fans who have warm memories linked to the series and bought each one from the day of release and not only for the graphics. I got this one for 30 bucks and i thought its an amazing price for the amount of games i get, but as a installed the games i was quite disappointed. Shogun-Mongol Invasion have no real multiplayer only LAN and because it was the first in the series the graphics are so monotone, colorless, out date that i doubt anyone even singleplays it, the Medieval-Viking Invasion is better in terms of graphics and it has Gamespy Arcade but its no competator to Medieval 2, Rome Total War is the one that knocked my sockes off, i mean the graphics are colorfull, rich, more live, stunning unit details. My advice is unless you played this games and for some reason lost or damaged old cd's and want a full collection get this one. But if you are casual gamer with no memories for this game get Rome:TW Gold and Medieval 2:TW which are most played.
