Rome: Total War was a fantastic game and I’m sure that those of us who have played it have some very fond memories of it. That being said, the game’s visuals haven’t aged as well as some of us like to pretend they have, which isn’t surprising seeing as the game is nearly 12 years old. Now while it might look dated, there is no denying that the game had one of the coolest and most memorable intros in the franchise’s history.
If you’re like me and you’ve always wondered what that classic intro might look like with a new engine then you’re in luck, because someone on the internet has very kindly sated our curiosity. YouTube user MathemedicUpdates has done an incredible job remaking the intro.
