For those who are fans of war strategy games then you might consider checking this new remastered copy of Total War: Rome Remastered. It is an intriguing campaign fought within the Roman Empire with an actual combat view and on-ground strategy.
Total War: ROME REMASTERED is published by SEGA. It is a game that lets you relive the legacy that defined the award-winning strategy game series. Remastered to 4K with multiple improvements to visuals as well as refinements to gameplay, it’s time to revisit a true classic. Not everyone gets a second chance to conquer the Roman Empire.
Initial Feedback on Total War: Rome Remastered
To be honest this is not actually my favorite game when it comes to war strategy game. I had played Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Sid Meir’s Civilization before. I like them both though ROTK seems to be lacking in recent years.
What is different and perhaps lacking in both the games mentioned above is the ability to really combat troops in battle. Through Total War: Rome Remastered you can actually command and control your troops on ground. Use the terrain like tress and mountains to give advantage to your troops.
There was one experience during my initial live stream of the game where I have to besiege a city and the enemy was inside the walls. What I did is to actually let my archers do the initial onslaught so that the Light Infantry will move away from the wall. After they are far enough I let my Battering Ram open the gate and then I encircled the troops at the center placing my heavy cavalry in the back and another infantry troop on the center and at the side with archers at the back.
Interface and Difficulty

One of my Livestream viewers said that if you learn this game it is as if you passed a master’s degree and well I have to agree. To those that are unfamiliar, the initial setup and city micromanagement seems to be a little difficult to understand. You really have to study the game bit by bit and don’t forget to save.
I have not yet fully explored diplomacy and espionage in doing this game, things that I hope to do in my nest stream. I would say that this game is really something which will allow you to think and be strategic.
