See you've got to use Roman numerals in describing the sequel to a game called Total War: Rome. So now we have Total War: Rome II, one of the richest, most involved strategy games out there. Strategy games can be very rewarding for players who know and appreciate what they're getting into. The Total War series of games really pays off for the player wanting to seriously and continuously dabble in resources management, upgrading, tactics and all sorts of other war-organizing principles.
For those of us who can't keep up with that level of detail and involvement, there are spiffy trailers like this to entertain us along the way.
