    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is a superb game, and is extremely cheap at retailers too these days. The strategy component is breathtaking and the graphics are great for such an old game. I easily give this a 9, but not a 10 since not all the factions are playable. Expand

    Slightly out of date now especially with its successors release this week. However a great introduction to the series and this editionSlightly out of date now especially with its successors release this week. However a great introduction to the series and this edition contains a huge amount of gameplay. The graphics are quite dated given the standard of the rest of the series nowadays but still enjoyable. While they spend the next year working out all the bugs on Rome: Total War 2 I would strongly recommend getting a taste for the game through this edition by which time Rome Total War 2 will be patched enough that it will be a superlative game. In the meantime you will easily lose yourself in this game and develop a real taste for the series in general. Collapse
