Gus has a look at ATW: The Last Roman today

Great review Gus. Couldn't have said it better myself. A little element of role-playing has snuck into this one with the options to choose independence or obedience and the frequent message/ choices you get to make. I loved to one that resulted in my armies being able to operate in the desert without attrition because I discovered the secret of water bottles. I could have really used that in North Africa.

^Funny how that works eh? Thanks for the kind words. Slight addendum: switching back to the Grand Campaign I see that The Last Roman DLC is better optimized than the Grand Campaign...the GC really chugs along sometimes because so much is going on. Not sure if it's because The Last Roman is just smaller or if it is truly optimization.

You're right. It does seem to play smoother and the AI turn is quicker.
