With this add-on pack for Microsoft's original Age of Empires, you can opt to play as one of four additional races, from Carthage, Palmyra, Rome, or the Hellenes.
As in the original Age of Empires, you'll choose to lead one of several historically based tribes, each toiling to construct the diverse selection of buildings required to support a growing civilization.
Now your microcosm of mankind must hunt for food and work hard for the wood, gold, and rock needed to construct more ambitious buildings, such as temples and town halls. You must also build up defenses, so that your society can hold its own against neighboring tribes, and fight with archers and wooden catapults.
Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome Expansion lets you fight with more combat units, such as scythe chariots and slingshot warriors, and also adds new map and terrain options. ~ Nick Smith, All Game Guide
