Players will be carried into the midst of ancient history's most intense conflicts as they lead mighty armies of more than 5,000 fully 3D, motion captured warriors on stunning 3D battlefields stretching to the horizon. They can play as legendary generals including Julius Caesar and Hannibal, or they can pit their wits against them as they use the art of Total War to conquer their enemies.
  • Epic Cinematic Battles - Revolutionary new technology allows for battles between colossal armies of over 10,000 superbly detailed warriors in one battle, all in 3D.
  • Command Massive Armies - A dozen playable nations each with unique units including Roman Legions, Greek phalanxes, Barbarian hordes, Egyptian Chariots and Carthaginian War Elephants.
  • Build an Empire - Construct vast cities, train mighty armies, outwit your enemies with diplomacy and subterfuge and plan your conquests on the all-new 3d campaign map. Then when armies clash zoom down to the action of the real time battles. Smart advisors and one click automanagement lets every gamer play how they want, from controlling every detail to pure battle action.
  • Storm the Walls - Assault huge cities and monumental fortresses with devastating war machines. Walls collapse and men scatter under fire from catapults, battering rams and war elephants smash gates and siege towers and ladders take the fight to the battlements while the defenders rain down death from above with arrows from the walls, towers and boiling oil above the gates.
  • Multi-Player - Take the war online against gamers across the world with eight player LAN and internet support, including new playable historical battles.

This is honestly a superb game it is different every single time you play through it. Unlike C&C and age of empires it doesnt have the repetative build a base, wait for a bit, get enough money to buy a few units then destroy the other base, there is so much more to it than that so many factions with unique units and as to how easy it is depends entirely on your decisions as to who to attack, and who to ally with and perseverance, as it offers a good 30 hours of gameplay to complete it on your first time round. and for those reasons it deserves 5 stars.

 The foundation of brilliance

While the total war series has been popular, my love for this game is unmatched. This ancient warfare game is brilliant for every lover of stratagy games. While by no means a game for novices as it can be quite easy to be overwhelmed by whats going on, especially in the larger battles, the overwhelming vercitiliy and realism is outstanding. The campaign mode and the battle mode give fast paced action and long term thinking a chance and can help a player to develop his or her ability to perseave future events. While there is room for improvment, this game is more than worth its orignal price after the hours ive spent on it, let along the current one.

 its Great!!!

this game is brilliant and u wont get tired of it. i have had the game ever since it came out but now sometimes it doesnt load up and goes back to my desktop, but this is after ages of having the game and for £7.99 it is totally worth it!
