Does anyone have it? If so discuss. I'm thinking of picking either it up or the barbarian invasion for Rome Total War.

You don't have time for other games. Get your fucking druid keyed already.

Lazy bastard.

I know :( I've got wife aggro from TBC that SHE BOUGHT ME for Christmas. Go figure.

Medieval Total War has a pause button.

I have Rome/Barbarian invasion. Not a bad game, though I don't have the RAM power I should, so it's a little choppy on my graphics. I don't do the battlefield fights, either, for the same reason. If you're boasting 512k Ram and a decent processor, you shouldn't have this problem.

If you like Total War, then you'll like this one. Much easier to scan your territories for dissent, and make adjustments. The auto-manage feature is pretty nice.. flexible enough for use.

The Imperial Campaign / as a Roman party is also an interesting aspect. A bit more thinking than the 'glorious achievements' aspect of Total War.

Besides some of the improvements, the game essence is the same. Build, build, conquer, conquer.

I like it, with a couple of drinks in me and the ability to mock my opponents.

Yeah I dig the Rome: Total war.. I just never bought the expansion. I used my giftgard on Medieval II TW tonight and will check that out.

I wasn't really impressed with barbian invasion, but then again I got it months after Rome got old.
