Rome was very, very good but I prefer Medieval 2 since i'm personally more familiar with the time period. Stellar games.
First, regarding a futuristic setting, No. With a capital N. Underlined and in italics and bold.LookingGlass said:Another question:
What game do you want to see next in the series? Rome 2? A new time period and setting they haven't touched on yet? A futuristic setting?
What do you think the series could/should add in the next installment?
Interesting idea, but for that situation I was ready to fight the senate anyway, so it basically gave me a countdown until they declared war, which was my intention.Spacewolf said:The best way to bribe other roman towns is to give them to an enamy as a gift in exhange for some money or somthing then just invading them as they will be ungarrisoned, and since you didnt take the town from another roman faction your sorted with the senate
I used to play with Rome total realism and i remember that being pretty good as well, i recently installed vanilla again and not sure about wether or not to install modsIstvan said:For Rome: Total War fans, until the second one comes out I know of an excellent total conversion mod which completely overhauls it, adds much to the historical accuracy and uses every single faction slot on playable factions. They press the engine to its limits but overall it's a very enjoyable experience if you like the historical setting moreso than the asterix & obleix/hollywood depiction of the original Rome.
Here's the website for it if you're interested:
There's also one for medieval 2 kingdoms in the works but that'll be a while before its released.
Oh and my favorite in the series is Rome, though only due to the mods.
Oh hell yes, I'm playing through the Britannia Campaign right now. As Scotland, I've finally kicked Norway off the mainland, and now Wallace is leading about ten thousand angry highlanders south to drive off England from encroaching on my border. Highland Nobles are murder machines.Kryzantine said:I'd suggest Medieval 2, and if you're looking for some fun challenges, Kingdoms as well. The Brittania scenario in Kingdoms is simply incredible. It just plays out so well.
