First, theres a mistake in the marketing message for this game. Some of you will be swayed by the boxs mention of 4X strategy and "massive armies" but its only through ignorance or willful deception that this game would be advertised as anything...

The Romans are a rich source of gaming jollity, what with all their politics and warfare, big cities and preoccupation with violent entertainment. So it’s a bit of a shame, then, that all the games we get based on this part of history tend to be...
