The History Channel's Great Battles of Rome
« on: January 31, 2009, 01:38:20 am »
First off let me say, i have a huge interest in ancient rome, so when i saw this game for really cheap on amazon i just had to buy it. Now i read reviews of the game and they said the game sucked, but i played it and i have to say, its actually really impressive. It crosses RTS and RPG elements that i've never seen in one game before and it has more realism than the total war series. Terrain is very important in the game, like for example light infantry fight great on boggy ground while heavy infantry and cavalry fight great on open ground as it doesn't disrupt formations. Now there are 70 roman missions with great cutscenes by the history channel and when you download a patch, a 40 mission celtic campaign which is also fun to play, the graphics are nothing fancy and it doesn't have the clone units feel that medieval 2 and rome total war have.

Anyone play this game?

I saw it in a gamestop, but it was pretty close to my rule #1 of video game shopping:
Never buy a video game made after a movie (with the exception of star wars.)

maybe I'll check it out.
