For many years this was the only game I would play. I think the game developers did an outstanding job programming everything from the effects of weather on the infantryman to the flight path of the arrows. I liked the way the gamer could affect everything from the socio-economics of the game to the national level strategy to the tactics used by the generals on the ground. It only gets better with each version. A great game.

It is totally worth the price that I paid for. I lost my Shogun CD a long time ago and it was great to reconquer Japan all over again by relying on superb tactics rather than novel weaponry from abroad.

As for the Medieval, the defense against the onslaught of the Mongol Horde was an tiring yet exuberant epic that has robbed me of countless weekends.

Nevertheless, Rome is still my favorite thus far with its intricate plot.

And this package has them all!!!

If you want to play a real time strategy game that will give you a challenge at every level and keep you coming back for more, then Total War: Eras is the answer. It has all the greats of the total war series in one box.

Out of the several war eras ONLY Rome Total War will play on Windows Vista, the manufacturer and producer SEGA should either provide a caveat that the entire collection WILL NOT load nor play on Windows Vista or provide a patch that will fix this incompatibility. Loading the games in Windows XP compatability mode for Vista does not correct the problem. I would have to buy an older used computer with Windows XP in order to benefit from this bundle.

Don't buy this game!!! Total Wars is a fun game. Total Wars Roman, Barbarian Invasion, Alexander, Medieval, and Shogun. The problem is they don't and won't run on your computer. First you have to use Direct X 8.0. To run Rome and the Barbarian Invasion. There is no easy method to un-install Direct X 9 or 10 versions which most likely you have. There is a method on the internet to take them out of the register and then find a copy to down load. The Medieval and Shogun won't run on that even on Direct X 8. I have yet to figure out how to get them to work. Sorry. I bought the separate Rome game and am going to return the Total Wars version. I have an old computer I can leave set up with the old setting to play it on. It is not worth buying unless they support it in the future with up to date drivers.

I won't go in the description of the games themselves - no need.

This is what you get in this package:

- 4 DVDs, containing 3 original games and their 4 corresponding expansions:

- Shogun;

- Shogun Mongol Invasion;

- Medieval;

- Medieval Viking Invasion;

- Rome;

- Rome Barbarian Invasion;

- Rome Alexander;

- Soundtrack CD, containing 43 tracks and over 76 minutes of music samples from the three original games;

- Documentary DVD 39 minute interview with the original creator of the series, explaining how they came up with the idea of the game and how game progressed over the years and incarnations;

- 50 page booklet with artwork from all 4 games in the series

- Medieval 2 Poster of the King Richard, the Lion Heart;

- 5 postcards with artwork from the games;

- one combined book with over 275 pages of game manuals

Watch the Documentary to learn such cool facts like, for example:

- how Sun Tzu's 'The Art of War' helped create Shogun tactical AI;

- how 'Gladiator' the movie influenced the decision to cover Roman period in the third game;

- how many future installments we should be expecting in this series before it runs out of gas

Enjoy!
