Conquer, rule and manipulate the Roman Empire with the ultimate goal of being declared as the "Imperator" of Rome. Set in a time when the mighty Roman Empire emerged to conquer the known world against powerful enemies, when gladiators fought to a bloody death in the Coliseum; when Spartacus defied the might of the empire; when Hannibal led his invincible army and his war elephants across the Alps to strike fear into the very heart of Rome itself; and when Julius Caesar finally smashed the Barbarian Gauls. This was a time of brutal confrontation between civilisation and barbarism, and of civil war as the ancient world's only superpower turned on itself.

The game that made the TW saga a classic.

For someone that played a lot Shogun TW like me, playing RTW for the first time was absolutely stunning.
The vanilla game is superbly done. The battles, the strategy map, visual & sound effects, physics.... you name it.
What made this game even greater were it's excellent mods.

It's greatest flaw, however, was shared by it's successor, M2TW and it's expansion Kingdoms: The lack of naval battles on the battlemap. Which came only when Empires TW came out.

A literally EPIC classic.

Enjoyable for a short duration at playing Napoleonic period battles; however lacks graphics, a campaign and naturally quickly runs thin of entertainment,,, but still a decent bad game
Simply divine as one if not the best strategy Total War game ever made. Tons of exciting things and events to do, graphics a little out dated and inaccurate; however still a good game to this day.

Graphics (8.1/10)
Game play (8.2/10)
Narrative Story Telling: (7.1/10)
Maps: (4.9/10)
Skins (7.0/10)
Entertainment (9.3/10)
Modder's Efforts N/A
Historical Accuracy: (7.1/10)
Technical (6.9/10)

Overall result: 9.0/10 = 90% on DaggerClassStudio's Game Mod Rating
= An Excellent Game

Un clasico de los jugabilidad es bastante buena y sumerge al jugador en una experiencia semi-real con los diferentes tipos de camara que posee.
Ademas, agrega el control de muchisimas unidaes por jugador y hace que este ultimo, piense en una estrategia realmente buena para derrotar al enemigo; pues aqui no se aplica aquello de "cantidad es calidad", no seƱor. Sino...como explicas que 300 espartanos puedan con miles de persas?
