Imperium Great battles of Rome
« on: July 31, 2021, 04:02:22 AM »
Finally, after so many years, one of the best rts ever is going to be released in english. It was only available in spanish and italian for many years (there were big tournaments), a HD Edition is coming out on steam. I highly recommend this....it's fast, it's tactical, it's great.

I played the first 2 games in this series and really enjoyed them.

This is a definite buy for me.

I think I remember this one, waaaay back in the early 00s when I first came on to Wargamer.com.

Or his deserts are small,
Who dares not put it to the touch
To win or lose it all.”  - James Graham 1st Marquess of Montrose

Its not in English, but here is some gameplay footage:

It is basically Celtic Kings 3. In Spain and Italy they were released as Imperium, Imperium 2 and Imperium 3.

Looks pretty cool.  I like the macro-display map view you can switch to and give orders through.  If all RTSes had a view like that, I would play a lot more of them.
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

I always have the same question re any RTS, and it's make-or-break:

Can you give orders while paused?

I don't remember but i think it's very well possible (and most likely something i used to do). Will check it out and tell you.
