Europa Barbarorum is a modification of Rome: Total War based on the desire to provide RTW players with a more fun, challenging, realistic, and historically accurate game experience. Europa Barbarorum is a total conversion, though it covers roughly the same time period as the imperial campaign included with RTW. The modification affects all areas of RTW; all vanilla units have been removed, all new models and textures, a new economic system, new traits system, new scripts, and in general new gameplay. No area of RTW is left untouched.
As historical as you can get with Rome Total War
The detail and breadth of the mod is incredible. I don't even have to think abut Rome II because I can play EB. I played as Rome in EB for 18 months and still was not the slightest bit bored. It is a fantastic and beautiful mod. Thanks to the modders!
The concept of this mod is really great: realism, historical accuracy, a great number of different playable factions etc.
However it has too many bugs: about 1 CTD every 30 minutes of playing is too much, in my opinion, expecially when it happens in the middle of a decisive tactical battle.
Anyway,a great game...i hope for less CTD's in EBII
Good mod for a good game :)
A great mod. Historical accuracy is always great.
Best and most realistic RTW mod . great historic experience.
Europa Barbarorum is a another very good mod about ancient times. Recommanded for players because combine fun with historical accuracy, but are many things to be discovered such as native voices for all cultures and recreation of many historical campaigns and battles of that fascinanting epoch in which Rome and Carthage clash for supremacy, Antigonid dynasty try restore glory but Epirotes and Greeks are their enemies. In East, Seleucids and other Hellenic states fought wars for control of Fertile Crescent.
It looks great, and there's so much new depth added to the game, but it's overwhelming. You're blasted with units that all look alike, and which all have Latin names. Even with the English translation it isn't always clear what each unit is or what it does at a glance. Armies can be comprised of one of each unit available without too much difficulty.
Still, enjoyable despite the frustrations.
