Improves Rome: Total War in every aspect! It offers innovative AI enhancements, original gameplay improvements, new maps & campaigns, new units, new graphics & textures, new historical battles... in fact, everything needed for maximizing challenge,realism and fun for this game.(From 2006 the previous version got around 75.000 *unique* downloads).
This mod has truly improved upon a game that was very close to perfect to begin with and thus gives us the player the opportunity to play a game that could darn well be the closest to what is a perfect game yet! If you love RTW as I and many others do, you owe it to yourself to try this mod out at the least.
My favorite features include the GIGANTIC Rome 270BC map which really ups the feeling of immersion. It really feels like Empires are being created and destroyed on a world wide scale now instead of the sort of mini map feeling the previous map gave me. The new skins are great of course bu that is just icing on the cake. The new AI is noticeably harder to trick and it has tricked me quite a few times as well! I really like thenew formations that are hot keyed for all the different factions. Make sure you don't forget about them. They are a lot of fun to use and try out in different situations.
As I said before if you love RTW, you MUST try this mod!
