Rome: Total War Barbarian Invasion Demo Description:
The Total War series has redefined the meaning of real-time strategy and actually invented a brand new genre, called 'grand strategy', which revolves around being able to control hundreds of units on the battlefield at the same time. Along the years, the franchise evolved in basically every aspect, including gameplay mechanics, graphics and the number of options you are provided with during the matches. Rome: Total War Barbarian Invasion is an expansion pack that aims to provide the players with a whole new campaign, as well as many brand new factions and a lot of gameplay improvements to make the battles more interesting, balanced and entertaining. Thus, while the original title dealt with the glorious years of the Roman Empire, this expansion takes a look at its fall and the factors that contributed to its demise over the course of a few short centuries. As such, Rome is now split into two nations, namely the Western and the Eastern Empires, which severely reduces their strength as a whole. In addition, the barbarian tribes are becoming more and more vicious and bold, not to mention the fact that the Huns have made their appearance in Europe and they are on a schedule to pillage and burn everything that stands in their way. Across the campaign, you get the chance to play either as the Roman Empire, or as one of the barbarian tribes, depending on your preferences.
