  • Summary: Total War: ROME REMASTERED lets you relive the legacy that defined the award-winning strategy game series. Remastered to 4K with multiple improvements to visuals as well as refinements to gameplay, it’s time to revisit a true classic. Not everyone gets a second chance to conquer the Roman Empire.

    Rome Remastered is the perfect way to experience Total War's antiquity offering in 2021 short of a third Rome title.

    The very heart of the playf experience has been remodeled to adapt to the current times and this means a functional user interface, revised in a minimalist style, stripped of distortions and unnecessary frills. Better management of menus and visuals, the introduction of a new type of unit in addition to the unlocking of 16 new factions (and of course all the DLC and mod support), finally, complete an offer that both the old centurions desk as much as the new Tribunes of the Plebs should not be missed.

    A lovingly crafted refresh of a classic Total War game that manages to recapture both its triumphs and its tragedies.

    All in all, if you're a Total War fan, especially someone who loved Rome: Total War back in the day, Total War: Rome Remastered is a fantastic way to jump back into the older game with some modern improvements. You'll have to get past some of the more archaic bits of the design, but the core experience: conquering the world and ushering your faction through Rome's civil war period is still so satisfying.

    This remastered gives a new look to one of the greatest Total War ever made, but the series has gone too much forward in the last years and Total War Rome Remastered sometimes feels like a trip into another era.

    A decent remaster of a great game. I just hope the devs will squash all the remaining bugs, tune-up AI, fix pathfinding and add mod support.

    Total War: Rome Remastered is a blast of nostalgia for those who have fond memories of losing hours of their night as they attempt to conquer just one more enemy city. Nostalgia is also the primary selling point for the game, however, as new players would be better-suited starting with a more recent title and experienced fans will miss certain quality of life features present in modern strategy games. While Total War: Rome Remastered does an honorable job of reviving an old classic, the fresh coat of paint does little to cover up its outdated mechanics, and it's likely that only established fans looking to return to a title they loved once before will get much out the remaster as a result.

    First of all, the first thing I want to point out is don't buy or play this game if you want to feel nostalgic. If you are a true Total WarFirst of all, the first thing I want to point out is don't buy or play this game if you want to feel nostalgic. If you are a true Total War fan and would like to have Total War: Rome REMASTERED in your library, you can buy it and play it. However, I would like to point out that the game is Remaster, not Remake. By knowing this, buy and play the game. Otherwise, you will be grievously disappointed.

    Although there are new elements and improvements, naturally, there are mostly improvements without going beyond graphic enhancement. However, I prefer the AI ​​of Rome: Total War to the AI ​​of Total War: Rome REMASTERED. In the REMASTERED version, both the campaign map and battle AI are disgraceful; at least that's how I experienced it. Units change formations just randomly. Sometimes they are acting like I'm not giving the order them to do something. The only bad thing about the REMASTERED version is the AI, and it is bad, really bad. I mean it!

    However, the game has its advantages, too. Total War: Rome REMASTERED appears to be a completely new game that was not released as an improvement over the original Rome: Total War. This is the point that makes me worried. So, it also means they're changing artificial intelligence. If only they hadn't... From the graphics improvements to the game's REMASTERED version, there are more user-friendly elements in the game, also new contents that we haven't seen in the original Rome: Total War. The game supports ultra HD resolution. There's also amazing updated 3D unit models and textures, widescreen and ultra-wide monitor support. Not to mention the new agent Merchant, of course. The atmosphere of war, campaign map and visual effects are also included in the graphic development. The new pieces of information and lines on the faction, trade, summary, etc. screen and unit information screens on the campaign map of the game have also been improved. In addition, improved camera and control settings have been added to the game. In addition to these, there are also quick access lists to facilitate access.

    Overall, it is a good game to experience Rome: Total War with good graphics and atmosphere, but as I said before; "...don't buy or play this game if you want to feel nostalgic. If you are a true Total War fan and would like to have Total War: Rome REMASTERED in your library, you can buy it and play it. However, I would like to point out that the game is Remaster, not Remake. By knowing this, buy and play the game. Otherwise, you will be grievously disappointed."

    By the way, I started with Julii, and defeated the Gauls, fought with Britannia and Spain to the death, did Marian Reforms, conquered half of Europe, hit to top on the economy; that was a good experience. But, I'm not talking about AI.

    Al juego original cuando salió le pondría un 9 por lo menos, ya que le dediqué muchísimas horas y lo disfruté mucho tanto en el modo campañaAl juego original cuando salió le pondría un 9 por lo menos, ya que le dediqué muchísimas horas y lo disfruté mucho tanto en el modo campaña como en el online.

    ¿Merece la pena el remaster? Pues si es por nostalgia sí, pero por poco más, al final los años pesan mucho para las mecánicas, los gráficos, las interfaces etc...

    Personalmente prefiero antes un buen remake que un remaster de chapa y pintura.

    The interface is really not user friendly compared to Rome II, Attitla, Shogun 2 and other games in the series.
