@ man-bear-pig

No, this game is older than the tv-series. Besides the setting and the competing families (which is based in history), also has nothing to do with it.

That said, this is one of the best RTS's ever made. It's brilliant. Best in the series also.
I'm psyched by the announcement of Rome II: Total War recently.
