Total War: Rome Remastered makes a grand old game feel less old – but it doesn't make it feel new again.

Total War's first remaster updates a 2004 classic, but this is still a game for those wearing nostalgia-tinted glasses.

Total War: Rome Remastered reflects quality and care from every raised gladius and stray denarius. We think you'll love this, says the remaster. If not, no worries, you can change it. It's more difficult that modern Total War games to get into, but it's undoubtedly a great package. So, two thumbs up then. Or to the side, if you want to be a stickler for history.

Total War: Rome Remastered is the perfect way to relive the old memories and conquer the ancient world once again. The hugely improved graphics, general bug fixing and the with new control schemes and interface also make it a more accessible product for newcomers as well.

Not a new game, but a good updating of an older classic. Gamers new to strategy, and those who missed the original, will find this well worth playing.

Total War: Rome Remastered is a great remastering of one of the most influential and important strategy games in the history of gaming, though it is warts and all. Certain improvements are invaluable in bringing the original closer to modern sensibilities, though they only go so far, allowing issues like pathfinding to remain, as well as a dense-as-concrete AI, even though it has been improved. However, no matter the issues, the gameplay is engaging, exciting and most of all, fun. This is a massive game, featuring two extensive expansions that have also been remastered, and one that I would recommend to any fan of the original, any fan of Total War and anybody who wants to ease themselves into the series with a game from simpler times.

Excellent throwback to memories of our younger selves, Total War: Rome Remastered reminds us how good the basics of this series were and how far it has travelled in the last seventeen years.

This new edition is not a simple façade work: the technical update is there and you can see, with support for ultra-widescreen 4K monitors, as well as native UHD resolution, as well as the restoration of polygonal models, effects and physics management. The very heart of the playful experience has been reshaped to adapt to the times that run and this means a functional user interface, minimalist style magazine, slew of twists and useless frills.

A lovingly crafted refresh of a classic Total War game that manages to recapture both its triumphs and its tragedies.

Total War: Rome Remastered is a fine remaster of a classic strategy game. If you haven’t played it, you really should.
