Uniting multi-award winning Rome: Total War and its official expansion pack, Barbarian Invasion, you must guide history’s greatest armies to victory in a game of epic real-time warfare, empire building, politics and treachery.

Play as one of three great Roman families, whose thirst for power will stop at nothing. This is the world of Hannibal, Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and a thousand others. This is a world of soldiers, gladiators, tyrants, monsters and fools. It’s a rich, exciting world, awaiting a conqueror – you! You must use military genius to build an empire that stretches across Europe and Africa. Finally march on Rome to seize control of the greatest empire in the world. Then in Barbarian invasion either defend it or lead a Barbarian horde and bring the once mighty empire to its knees.

• Experience real-time battles – Use innovative battle tactics in battles with up to 10,000 soldiers on-screen at once.

• Command and build your campaigns – Balance economic, civil, religious and military power in the century-spanning campaign.

• Learn from the best – Fight alongside or against history’s greatest leaders such as Julius Caesar, Spartacus, and Hannibal to expand or destroy the Roman Empire.

• Lay siege with signature weapons and abilities – Turn the tables against the Romans as Attila the Hun, the fearsome Saxons, and other savage factions in the Barbarian Invasion expansion pack.

4.5/5 – “…Total War delivers a strategy experience that’s hard to pass up.” – Mac|Life

5/5 – “There’s a lot to like about RTW; a lot of little details that separate it from other real time strategy games.” – Appletell

Review by MrTerryLu

Amazing Strategy Game - I was able to play a two hour battle of a horde of 10,000 men attacking my stone walled city with about 2,400 men with no lag. I lost, but only after inflicting 7,000 casualties. I’m using a 13” macbook air mid 2012 intel i5 with hd 4000 graphics and 4g of ram. My settings are all set to low/lowest with 1440 x 900 resolution with the exception of troop size set to huge. I recommend this game to anyone that enjoys building/commanding armies, managing/upgrading cities, and/or conquering regions. What’s awesome about this game is that they allow you to autoresolve battles and automanage cities/taxes so if there’s something you don’t fancy, you can have the AI do it for you. The only cons I can think of is that the AI can make odd decisions and not having the option to watch battle replays. Sadly, I can’t relive that epic battle.

Old-time lover of this game - Loved it a million years ago when it first came out on PC - now I love it on my mac. Definitely worth the money if you want a strategizing game or loved Civilizations. I’m just waiting for more releases of this game. I think the new Warhammer addition was awesome (cannot wait to try that out), but a Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones version of this game would be ABSOLUTELY incredible. This game would skyrocket - something that I want to happen for this game series because I am such an avid fan.

Crash Course - Would be a good game but it always crashes in battle mode. I bought this through the App Store about four months ago. It has always crashed. I wish I could get my money back, as it is just useless code gunking my the HD.

Review by Egbert H. Frogbottom III

Does NOT work - This game hasn’t worked on a MacBook Pro in over a year, and has had zero updates to fix it. It will not load on a Mac and you have to “force quit” the app in order to unfreeze your computer. Does not work and needs to be removed from the App Store. In fact, I’m tired of the App Store keeping crap like this in the store and it makes me not trust them. One of the reasons I haven’t upgraded my Iphone, as I’m about done with Apple in general becasue of stuff like this. Things used to work, now everyone is lazy. I paid $20 for this game and can’t even play it like everyone else.

Review by Segabe1

To get the best out of it - to get the best game experience out of rome total war you have to upgrade your computer. i have 2x250gb ssd’s and 16GB DDR3 memory and i run the game on core i5 mid 2012 MacBook Pro. i run the game on highest graphic and best settings all around. the game has crashed on me a couple times but mind you they have been after hours of gameplay. it has not crashed on me during battles that for sure. id recommend buying this game, its very fun. the downside is not having multiplayer and the headaches that come with trying to mod the game. other then that, if you want to have fun with strategy. this is it.

CRASHING IN BATTLE MODE - Everything is fine and works. Recently it has been crashing in battle mode or beginning of battle mode. Please update/fix as it is a great game otherwise. Playing on a MacBook Pro 2016: Sierra: i7
