|Rome: Total War|
Created by DARTH VADER with little help it aims to create a mod concerned with able tactical mad AI. DarthMod is a unique double modification for both RTW-BI. That means if you own both Rome:Total War and its expansion Barbarian Invasion, you get the chance to play 2 full modifications for them which enhance them very much in terms of gameplay and graphics.
