Okay, so this is the third time I’ve blogged about Rome: Total War, but I finally got the game!!!! It’s the complete edition, which means that in addition to Rome: Total War I have two expansion packs: Barbarian Invasion and Alexander. That’s a pretty good deal! I hope I’ll have more fun with this version of the game than I did with the last one. If truth be told, Rome was the version of Total War that I wanted in the first place.
It’s a really old game, but it should be fun. There’s no blood or gore, nothing inappropriate and there is virtually no cussing in it, so that’s a good thing. Like I said before, in the game you can play as one of three Roman families trying to get control of the empire: the Julii, the Brutii, and the Scipii. Sadly, I heard from one source (Many a True Nerd on YouTube,) that the Brutii are basically the only faction, at least the only Roman faction, worth playing. I may try playing as the Julii, though. In fact, I may not have a choice as to which family I play as at first. I hope I do, but we’ll just have to see.
As I said, there are two expansion packs: Barbarian Invasion and Alexander. That’s pretty cool, but maybe I should focus on mastering the original game before playing either of those games.
