THE GOODS

The Gold Edition packs two world dominating games in one - uniting multi-award winning Rome: Total War and its official expansion pack, Barbarian Invasion. Rome: the greatest empire the world has ever seen. Will you choose to defend it, or lead the charge to bring it crumbling down? In this award-winning strategy game you play as one of three great Roman families, the Julii, Scipii, or Brutii. Lead a campaign to extend your empire from Europe to Africa, culminating in a march on Rome to seize control of the city. Then, when a barbarian horde is at the gates, you must decide if you will protect your new home, or switch sides and lead the horde to bring the mighty empire to its knees.

WHY WE LOVE IT

Although the real-time battle animations are decidedly epic, and one of the main reasons we love this game, it isn't just won with brute military force. You have to use innovative battle tactics and balance economic, civil, and religious influence when constructing your campaign. It might take a bit of patience and critical thinking to align all the pieces correctly, but like they say - Rome wasn't built in a day. TOP FEATURES
  • Fight alongside or against history's greatest leaders such as Julius Caesar, Spartacus, and Hannibal to expand or destroy the Roman Empire.
  • Strike fear into the hearts of Romans as Attila the Hun, the Saxons, and other savage factions in the Barbarian Invasion expansion pack.
  • Capture three centuries of historically accurate warfare from the Punic Wars to the death of Augustus.
  • Dodge assassins' knives, build and govern cities, train and command armies, obey the wishes of the Senate (some of the time), stage gladiator games, and more.

THE PROOF

Metacritic Score: 92 "...any gamers with an interest in the strategy genre owe it to themselves to buy, beg for or borrow this game. I'd honestly suggest you steal it...but in these days of hasty litigation, I had better refrain from actually encouraging anyone to commit a crime...Still, with a game this good, it'd be a crime not to play it. Personally, I've never given a score this high before but Rome: Total War is without a doubt one of the best games I've ever played. The combination of subject matter, game mechanics, and outstanding visuals add up to one of the best experiences you'll have on the PC." - (9.4/10) IGN.com

THE GOODS

The power to build an Empire is at your fingertips with Total War. Choose one of 12 nations from Europe, America or the Indian subcontinent to rule, command the seas, conquer the land, and govern your people. This epic game combines turn-based empire building with massive 3D real-time battles on land and at sea. Charged with the fortunes of a nation, you must use diplomacy, trade and military force to establish it as the dominant power of the 18th Century. Whether you choose to expand your borders through bloodshed or diplomatic cunning, you'll establish overseas colonies and profitable trade networks - and further fuel your conquest.

WHY WE LOVE IT

We've played strategy games before, but none on this scale. Head into battle, on land or at sea, and the stamping of boots, clash of bayonets, rumble of cannons, flapping of sails, and splintering of wood as cannonballs rip through the side of your ship make you feel like you've actually stepped back into the 18th Century. Add to that immersive, strategic gameplay and you see why this game stands above the rest. Plus, the Gold Edition of Empire: Total War contains all game updates, improvements and downloadable content, including The Warpath Campaign and four unit packs: the Special Forces Units and the Elite Units of the East, West and America. TOP FEATURES
  • Set the strategy, dictate the tactics and command your troops in large-scale battles.
  • Take to the high seas in superb recreations of 18th Century naval warfare.
  • Use full camera control to experience a soldier's perspective in the midst of battle.
  • Forge alliances, negotiate trade routes, and research new technologies to expand and strengthen your empire.
  • Lead the Continental army to independence against the British Empire as George Washington.

THE PROOF

Metacritic Score: 90 "Empire: Total War is a masterful combination of all the things that I love about strategy games -- a great setting, a first-rate presentation, tactics that reward maneuver, and a strategic layer that requires flexibility in your plans...I've never given a score this high before, but that's only because I've never played a game as thoroughly enjoyable as Empire: Total War. Simply put, if you're a fan of strategy games, this is one game you must have in your collection." - (9.5/10) IGN.com
