"Best Strategty Game since StarCraft"5.0 starson by SPARTAN VI
Pros: Extremely massive battles, very tactical, well blended real-time/turn-based strategy, the ultimate strategy gamer's delight
Cons: Requires a patch to be played in its full potential.
Summary: Somewhat ironic that the previous "spartan" that rated this game hated it, whereas I can't get enough of it. Then again, after several patch releases, I'm sure his complaints are out-dated.
Rome:TW is absolutely phenomenal. Massive battles tallying troops in the hundreds, even thousands. At first, the AI was a bit dodgey, but after updating, friendly fire casualties has greatly decreased, the AI properly utilizes siege engines, AI troops stagger formation or for a line when engaging missile/onagers, AI tactically skirmish before engaging, etc. There has been a slew of fixes, but even before I updated, I had tons of fun and didn't run into any errors.
I'm very excited to see what CA comes up with next.
