This follow-up to Paradox Entertainment's games of New World conquest looks farther back through history, to give players a chance to create the Western world's first and most influential empire of all. As in the original Europa Universalis and its two sequels, players choose a nation and attempt to gain power and prestige through trade, diplomacy, and warfare with its neighboring rivals, across an historically accurate game map. Europa Universalis: Rome takes place in the time period of the Roman Empire's rise, beginning with the first Punic war and running through the defeat of Carthage to the time of Julius Caesar. Although great attention is given to the authenticity of historical details in the set-up of each game, players can customize the culture and character of the country they choose to lead, allowing them to re-create history or rewrite it to their liking. ~ T.J.
