Total War: Rome, Rock Band 2 [In reply to] Can't Post

A bit of a Johny come lately on RB2; the sound track is much better than the first one (and that one was pretty good!). Getting the hang of the drums this time out. I note that the song selections are quite a bit more difficult for the singer -- a lot of discordant, loose singing styles ie Alice in Chains, Bob Dylan, Talking Heads, et al.

As for Rome, I've always been a fan of the Total War series playing every version from Medieval to Empire. But for some reason I glossed over Rome when it was released in 2005 (I think I was really busy with Teacher's College at the time?) Anyway there are a couple things that set this title apart from other RTS games including the rest of the Total War series (Medieval II Kingdoms being my favourite): The first is that the game engine was developed to render the epic battle scenes for the movie Troy (I think it was Troy); Secondly on the battle map, depending on your general's attributes and the make up of the opposing army, your general gives an inspiring pep talk outlining such things as what to expect from the opposing army, his opinion of their abilities, difference in force size, troop quality, morale and strategy. I was a bit surprised by some of the speeches -- the developers must have built in phrases that are triggered by certain conditions -- in how well they flowed and matched the conditions you were likely to encounter.
