Rome: Total War, review by DeusExVis
Great game, pairing Civ management with tactical gaming was a great idea. My only beefs are the lack of naval tactics, a useless autoresolve function (I never had a decent success rate with it) and the enemy AI in tactical situations was generally poor. But at its core, the gameplay, the weaponry, and the balance of units was amazing. I can't say enough about it, being an ancient history buff myself. Some of the details about the Macedonians, Greeks and Seleucids were not correct, but generally it was all on point. Good stuff, and endless gaming fun.
