(NewsUSA) – Your moment of glory has come! Take the role of
legendary generals like Julius Caesar, or compete against them to further conquer their enemies.
Dominate and reign over one of the most powerful empires in history in a new action-packed PC
game, "Rome: Total War."
This award-winning game by The Creative Assembly will make players feel like they're
right in the heart of the Roman Empire with full 3-D gaming technology.
Did you ever think you could build an empire? In "Rome: Total War," you have the
power to create customized battles or select historic battles in both single – and multi-player
mode. This is the only multiplayer game that lets you interact with more than 10,000 troops on
screen at once.
With such realistic battles, every detail is mirrored with a 3-D campaign map including
topography, buildings and troop movement. There's even pre-battle speeches, music and sound effects
that enhance the game's realistic action. Plus weather effects like rain, storms and day-to-night
progression let you experience real war-time conditions.
With a tutorial that immerses you in the action and advisers who assist you
throughout the game, you're sure to be prepared for battle no matter what your level.
You can elect to either auto manage cities, troops, finances, economy and battle
resolutions or take full control of all aspects of the game. You can even zoom in up close to get
right into the middle of the battle.
Players can attack huge cities and monumental fortresses with everything from war
machines to arrows and boiling oil. Walls collapse and men scatter under fire from catapults and
battering rams. Also, control historically accurate units including war elephants, flaming pigs,
war dogs, and war chariots.
For more action, take the war online and play against gamers across the world with
six-player LAN and Internet support.
Be carried into the midst of ancient history's most intense conflicts by taking
control of historic leaders' armies and determine the course of destiny with more in-depth
diplomacy than any other real-time strategy game. Are you ready?
