    Deciding on Rome

    Hello everyone. Ive been a fan of Paradox games for a few years now, and I have just recently stumbled across this particular game of theirs called 'Rome'. I love the Roman period in history, and am considering purchasing this game (plus expansion). However I cant help but wonder whether I would be better off waiting for Rome 2 to come out, that is if it is. Is there going to be a Rome 2 (or any hints that there may be) or should I just go ahead and buy Rome?

    There have been hints that Rome 2 will be developed but there won't be any official announcements about future releases for another month or so.

    I just bought Rome Gold when it was on sale and haven't regret it so far.

    Buy Rome gold with Vae Victis included. Its currently sold for 8.99€ at GamersGate and Steam. Thats practically "On Sale" for most Paradox games.

    Remember to download the latest beta patch. It's actually quite stable and remove some annoying bugs.

    For that price you get many hours days of entertainment.

    Edit: Even if Rome 2 was revealed today it would take 6-12 months before it's actually released, so you will have plenty of time waiting.

    I'd say waiting for Rome 2 is just as good decision as waiting for EU4 so basically if you want to play any time soon (instead of waiting and waiting and waiting, because it may never come) buy the current game

    And who knows if they release an expansion instead of the much talked 2nd game, it at least would be a lot more likely to happen.

    as Wave, says, buy it in its own right. In gameplay terms it sits between EU and CK - ie there is a lot of characterisation but you are still playing the 'state' not a family. So you can lose a civil war and carry on, also like both those games, there are different challenges to be had all over the map

    Thanks for the responses. I guess its decided then. If this game is a good mix between CK and EU then Im sold. Look out Steam, here I come!
