Thumbs up Rome Total War

Just bought it today at Fry's ....





I've played Shogun and Medievel TW and so far so good. I thought it would just be the same old as the other two but there is anew interface and the battle scenes are great. You can zoom all the way in and see some of the carnage. It's really fun when you charge your cavalry in and see the bodies flying. Very Gladiator and Braveheart-like in feel.

Also, I have all settings fully maxed out and the game runs flawlessly on my 6800 Ultra. I heard from someone that it might tax the card but so far I haven't had any problems.

The screenshot I inserted doesn't do the battle scenes any justice. It was kind of hard for me to pick a good point to press print screen because there was so much going on from differnt parts of the batlle.

I haven't been too far in the game but I'm already hooked. Anyone else out there playing this?

nice

i will hopefully be able to play this game sometime next week... I started orientation for my new job and have been busy

wrt screencaps, consider dling and running FRAPS... I believe mike has a sticky on it in one of the threads here... you can take multiple screen caps and they are all stored in the fraps folder or wherever you specify... makes life a lot easier...

Yeah, I'll check that thread out. It would have been nice to take multiple screenshots and then pick and choose because while I was trying to get the right shot while using just the print screen button, I would miss the good parts (lol).

I've been playing it every spare second I have had since I bought it.

Best Strategy of all time. Period.

I loved the demo, I've been waiting for the cheese to get this one. Arg, I hate being responsible with my money.

Definately the best RTS game I've ever played. I've spent my entire weekend playing the game almost non-stop. Very fun.

I did not enjoy the demo that well so I've decided to skip it. Im a AoE and AoM fan my self. Anyway the graphics are absolutely stunning on two monitors, if you have a second (quality) monitor just sitting around hook it up and give it a go.

I've been planning on posting this here all week, but haven't had time to get on the PC after work. Enjoy! (Subject is a bit regional)

*shrug* I don't listen to the guy, so I've got no idea exactly how big he is. Thought he was regional, but oh well.
