Screenshot of the Day: Rome: Total War
Rome: Total War is a strategy game with both a world map where players build up cities and move armies, and a real-time strategy portion (shown above) in which battles are carried out. It's lauded as one of the best games in the Total War series, and the Roman setting is one I particularly enjoy.
Playing as Rome is great because you can conquer the known world while still following a generally historical course of operations. Players start out controlling just a few Italian cities, and can expand the Roman Empire as they please. The battles a surprisingly tactical, and small forces can triumph against the odds if they have better formations and organization.
