  Rome: Total War
Words from the company:
Create, rule, conquer and manipulate the Roman Republic and Empire to become the "Imperator" of Rome in this award-winning game from the highly acclaimed Total War™ series. Fight as, or against ancient history's most legendary generals including Julius Caesar, Hannibal and the rebel Spartacus. At your disposal are over a hundred different troop types including legionaries, hoplites, barbarian hordes, war elephants, gladiators and scythe chariots to colossal war machines such as siege towers, battering rams and catapults hurling flaming missiles. The stage is set for carnage on more than 10,000 unique battlefields based on the topography of Europe and North Africa. Conflict is not the only way to gain favor with the senate and people of Rome, however, as politics, diplomacy the gladiatorial games will play key roles in your quest to be declared Imperator. Dominate and reign over one of the most powerful empires in history.

The Review:
The setting of this game is based back before the Roman Empire. Your mission as an ally to Rome is to create the Roman Empire, and eventually become the emperor. I must warn you though this isn't a 2 or 3 day finish. In one week I have only begun to create my own empire, let alone the Roman one. The neat thing about this is not only is it a strategic “take all the land” kind of game, you must also fight battles on the battlefield in order to control countries or empires, and create and maintain the cities within. Had no problems installing, and by the specs it doesn't seem to be a very hardware demanding game other than Radeon 8500 or higher, or Nvidia Geforce 3 or higher.
