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.
Europa Barbarorum is truely a phenomenal modication to the original Rome: Total War platform. This overhaul enables players to experience, probably, the most realistic experience of classical antiquity in the given time frame. For one, the barbarian factions are represented more a historically than vanilla. The depictions show barbarians as more civilized peoples then was previously shown in vanilla. Each faction has its own unique specialties and points of interest. The main thing players can look forward to in Europa Barbarorum is diversity, fairly historical authenticity, and an exciting game play experience. Aside from occasional crash to desktops this mod presents the best modification for the vanilla game. Look to the release of Europa Barbarorum 2 in the coming years! and be sure to give THIS mod a try! It's truely underated and should not be so.
