The aim of the game is to conquer, rule and manipulate the Roman Empire with the ultimate goal of being declared as the Imperator of Rome. The battles in Rome: Total War maintain the epic-scale that fans of Total War are used to, but now use high detailed 3D polygonal troops and allows huge cities to be displayed on the battlefields thanks to a completely new Total War engine.


At players' disposal will be hundreds of different troops including legionaries, hoplites, barbarian hordes, war elephants, gladiators and scythe chariots to colossal war machines such as siege towers, battering rams and catapults hurling flaming missiles. Additionally, more than 10,000 unique battlefields based on the topography of Europe and North Africa set the stage for the carnage. However, conflict is not the only way to gain favour with the senate and people of Rome; politics, diplomacy and the gladiatorial games will play key roles in the player's quest to be declared Imperator.
