Here's a vid showing more of the mechanics of R2TW. It's amazing the resources CA has access to.

More "Hollywood Romans" and "300" style swordplay.

Ahistorical. Perhaps they'll bring back the flaming pigs and screeching women.

It might be Hollywood style, but man is Total War a fun series.

Rome Total War came out at the height of my interest in Roman history back in 2004, even the obvious historical flaws took nothing away from the immersion and fun factor of the game.

I mean, sure the Roman factions had Ninjas for some reason, but you can just laugh at it, its a video game not a documentary after all . You can always get mods such as "Rome Total Realism" as well as other more in depth adaptions as well if you want to, personally I enjoyed Vanilla and the modded versions just as well.

Unfortunately no.

The best information available is a rally point episode - No. 13.

You can definitely see the Shogun 2 influence, but even prettier. Finally a RTW campaign map with topography! I see we can now rotate the campaign camera. So if we wanted to get a true sense of the Gallic or the Seleucid perspective, we can now turn the camera to look south or west. The campaign map textures are beautiful. I've yet to see such art put into a turn-based geographical map. In game, even the camels have different facial expressions. Naval battles on the Nile? Awesome! Finally no more clone soldiers!
