Rome: Total War - Collection reviews and comments

Still one of the best Games of all Time. For 12 Years I've been playing the Game regularly and it's never going to be bland. Part 1, unlike Part 2, is perfectly balanced and can also be played very fluently. On Windows 10, you now have to excludes Anti-aliasing And change the Resolution in Preferences.txt. Otherwise you only have 1024x768. To cut it short, the Game Is a Stroke of Genius and presumably always will. Just perfect! Younger Players who do not know the Game will probably be too bland because of the dusty Graphics and they will also not have the Experience to master the Game. Ie I dare to predict they will say that Play is unfair and too heavy, or unpredictable. So rather leave your Fingers off it. The Game is for old Veterans who Part 2 goes too far.

I still know, as I did then, how I always went to my Cousin Andreas as a young Boy and played everything possible about games there, which I was not even allowed to watch in My sleep from my Parents at that time. One Day I came over with him while he was playing a totally foreign Game to me. I watched him command troops and stomp entire Armies into the Ground with just a few Fighters and strategic Tricks. He offered to play me on a Round, but the short Round turned into the 10 Hours in which we sat together and strategically fought our way through this comical Land. Later in School, I learned that this "Country" is called Europe and is not a Country but a Continent. In relgions and History lessons, too, it turned out that my Knowledge of old Europe was not entirely useless when I could tell my Teachers all the City Names of what was important city names at the time. But never mind. I then asked my Cousin if I could borrow the Game with the Flags, as I called it. He then said that this was not a Problem and so I spent the rest of The summer only with Zocken. Get up Early in the morning, go to sleep late at night. Although I gave it back after some Time, I was missing, but luckily I had Consolation patches like Stronghold 2 and Stronghold Legends, but that's a different Story. A Few Years later, AFTER discovering Steam, CS: GO and LOL and GETTING bored, this one Game from my Childhood came to mind that I had loved so much in the past. Quickly entered the Name in the Search List, briefly maintained, and there it was: Rome: Total War. I'm tied back to the turn-based game that consists of epic Battles, History and endless possibilities and had tremendous Gameplay like no longer. The Graphics are acceptable in my Opinion, especially in Map mode. The AI, depending on the Setting, always demanded a lot from me and almost does not let you come to rest. I don't want to talk about the bush for as long As now. You Can definitely sacrifice a few Euros for such a Classic. Every Hour of my Life was worth it.
