    I originally played this game for the PC and was excited when it finally came out for mac. My impression has been mixed.

    Rome: Total War

    This is the better of the two games. I first started playing as Brutii and so far so good. I have had no problems. However, when I tried the game as Gaul, problems started to arise. I was besieged early on by a Roman army, but when I tried to attack with the army in the settlement, the game just froze. On one settlement, there were added buildings to one of the religious buildings (5 tiers of upgrades instead of the usual 3).

    Rome Total War: Barbarian Invasion

    This is the game I have had problems with. I started playing with the Franks. When I tried to capture the Saxons capital, the game crashed. I tried several ways (play the battle out, auto-resolve, etc.) but the game crashed each time. The same thing happened when I played as the Saxons trying to take London from the Romano-British.

    Overall, the game has been fun to play. Other than the above mentioned problems, the game play has been very smooth. I am hoping a future update will fix some of these problems. I have sent an email to Ferral Support, and am still waiting to hear back. Until then, I will give the game 3 stars for the conversion problems.

    Rome: Total War has been my favorite strategy game for the past few years. I’ve had to stay in the Windows world, though, since there wasn’t a native Mac version.

    I’ve been kicking the tires of Feral’s Mac port for the past couple of days using the Rome: Total Realism – Platinum mod (which Feral has also enabled for the Mac, along with a couple of the other most popular mods). No problems so far; the game has been flawless, with no crashes or observed bugs. Thumbs up to Feral not only for bringing the vanilla game over to the Mac world, but for enabling the more historically accurate variants too — it really makes the game much more enjoyable. You can read detailed instructions on how to enable the mods on Feral’s forum on Facebook ([...]).

    The only negative comment I can make at this point is that it puts a heavy load on my system (2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro). The Activity Monitor maxes out while I’m running the game, even in campaign mode (which I thought should tax the system less than the battle mode). The keyboard gets uncomfortably hot and the fans go at max speed. Make sure your system is up to the task!

    The Total War series has been regarded as one of the finest strategy franchises for the PC, scoring a remarkable 9.4 out of 10 by [...].

    It is a remarkable game that allows the player to begin their quest for glory and power in ancient Rome, and then being able to move on to more than two dozen other fractions set in the ancient world. It is a well rounded game allowing players to micro-manage each town, city, and battle, or you can delegate the computer to help you out. There are no lags, loading time is faster than it is on its PC counterpart, and battles are as fast as ever. Unfortunately, there have been no upgrades to to the graphics, but game-play is so enjoyable it will only bother the hardcore gamers.

    It’s a highly enjoyable game which leaves us hoping Creative Assembly will bring Medieval 2 and Empire Total War to the Mac platform.
