Developed by Independent Arts, Against Rome is a real-time strategy game that takes players back to the European continent's migration of nations period (roughly 200 -- 450 AD). The challenge begins in an area yet to be conquered by the Roman Empire. This seemingly endless stretch of territory is referred to by the Romans as "Barbaricum," considered home by many "less evolved" nations. It is here that the player takes command of a restless tribe.
This tribe, designed to stand out against the rest for its love of pillaging, and plundering, sets the theme of the game. Three-dimensional graphics are designed to engulf the players as their tribe travel across the vast territory raiding other settlements for food, weapons, and gold in either a single-player campaign mode or against up to eight other players. As the tribe obtains more of these resources, it grows in both size and reputation, until eventually it is poised to take on the Roman superpower in an epic battle for control of the Empire.
Set in Europe at the time of the migration of nations (about 200-450 AD), Against Rome takes the player to that part of the continent that has not yet succumbed to the Roman Empire. This vast territory, which the Romans disparagingly called barbaricum, is the home of numerous primitive nations. The player takes control over one of these barbarian tribes, who as a whole stood out for a pronounced lack of cultural achievements, combined with a ferocious belligerence. Skirmishes, raids and plunderings were the order of the day for these barbarians and are, therefore, the great theme of this game.
Based in a small village, the player and his barbarians roam the vast forests of Germania or the barren steppes of eastern Europe to raid other settlements in their search for food, weapons and gold. These resources will help the barbarian chieftain expand his settlement and, above all, increase his reputation. While his tribe grows and flourishes, the leader obtains fame and experience and grows to be a master of warfare, until the player's barbarian empire is finally ready to take on the superpower of the time - the mighty Roman Empire and its apparently invincible army.
