Yep. It's almost as good as Medieval, but with a lot more flaws.

I agree. Good game, great graphics, still not as good as medieval (at least not as addictive).
Medieval II is now under development! Tongue
I can't wait to smash everyone with the mighty byzantines!

I think Medieval was much more realistic than this game. RTW is still good though.

That may be so, but considering the battle scenes I think RTW was meant to be more "arcade" and less strategical.

The EB mod and the extra 128MBs of memory have made this game so much more playable for me.
Kudos to all those modders who saved a game with great potential that was poorly implimented in the box.

I like the more stragetic value of Rome Total war plus the 3d cities and map.

What is it you change in the preferences.txt (?) to make RTW battles look like MTW ones, interface wise?

Isn't Medieval and Rome made by the same software house? I love Rome Total war. I think it's time for the second edition of the game.

great game, though there's some units whom were made out of the air. For example the "legion cavalery", or "Praetorian cavalery".

One of the more fun factions to play, even if you run in to trouble fairly quickly in the strategic game.

Between rebels, pontus, selucia and eventualy the parthans, and not having very good infantry, eventualy logisitcs takes its toll.
A faction with good heavy infantry can take a good beating, and move onto the next battle. With the Armenians, sure, their cavalry is godly, but there supply of arrows is not infinit, and you need infantry to clean up the enemy's spearmen. After a battle your infantry are trashed and you need them to go back to a city to recharge.
I find that expansion is often slow on the harder levels, and cash sparse, and that tends to put a damp on things.
In the vanilla game the Armenians apparently eventualy get their version of a legionare, but i've never seen one.

The legionarries come after the Marius reform, which is pretty late in the game.

 As far as i'm concerned RTW is unplayable without a mod, my personal choice is Rome Total Realism, but theres a ton out there that make the game playable.

 However there are so many problems with this game that I wouldnt call it the best strategy game, on the contrary, one of the worst, for sheer disappointment and frustration.

There are  bugs here and there in the game. but overall the playing exp. and the things you learn are well worth that.

Yes, the mods are the only reason that I play RTW. If it was more realistic, it would be the best strategy game.
