    A new quick and satisfying campaign that will keep you occupied for 10 hours on a smaller map limited to 18 provinces of Gaul and Britain. [02/2014, p.57]

    Caesar in Gaul is a good, little add-on. Not much content, especially if compared to the likes of Kingdoms and Warpath, but the overall feeling makes for an enjoyable experience.

    Caesar in Gaul is a by-product of the studio’s massive attempt to fix Rome 2. New gameplay elements definitely improve the game, but there is no need to pay for them, unless you want a new piece of map and three more fractions. All you have to do is simply download the latest patch.

    Total War: Rome 2: Caesar in Gaul DLC doesn't really add anything to the Rome 2 experience. [May 2014]

    Even at its best, Caesar in Gaul wears thin long before the end of the campaign.

    By stretching the years to 24 turns, adding seasonal weather and (all but) removing sea battles and internal politics, Caesar in Gaul proves to be an effective, though not exactly revolutionary, expansion to Rome 2.

    A bland expansion pack not enriching the original game. Caesar's name may be attractive, but his campaign against the Gauls is not what we want to be the game's expansion pack.

Also the scenario is NOT very good. NOT well designed. NOT fun to play and NOT an enhancement of the core game. Its $15 for a piece of CRAP basically. There are better mods out there for free. Now CA can probably appreciate how flawed their entire approach to Rome II has been. If the engine design and the basic engine had been built properly an idea like this would have translated into a great mini campaign. As it is definitely WAIT till you can get this POS for about $1. Because that's all it's worth. I fell like a real moron for paying full price for this.

It seems the Devs have lost focus on what makes the Total War series good. Instead of fixing a still broken game, they try an fix it in a mini dlc, which offers nothing new other then slight changes you can do yourself with player mods. I mean seriously....no offense to Caesar fans, but they could have chosen a much better Era during roman times for this DLC....Gaul conquests are boring, and even more boring in Caesar in Gaul. What ever happened to all nations feeling unique? Those historic pop ups that would educate you or give you a choice that could really change the outcome of your campaign? Those cool videos that agents had when they failed or were successful in a mission? Coop or Head 2 head games that players could both move at the same time? This DLC sucks...for a game which is still broken. Rome 2 is still the worst of the TW Franchise and this DLC just rubs salt on the wounds. Full Review »

    Let's cut the fine introduction and move straight to the point.

    What features does Caesar in Gaul add to the gameplay? Seasons. Seasons and an improved "realm divide" mechanic. Neither feature is new for the TW series, but simply features that did not make it to the main game for whatever reason - and features that were advertised as if they had been innovative or unique for this title.

    Caesar in Gaul essentially scales up a setting that is already in the main campaign. It does it well, however. It also adds one single historical battle to the existing four. A low number for any Total War game, only matched by Empire.

    As it happens expansions nowadays come with the most absurd price tags. Compared with Rise of the Samurai for Shogun 2, which offered an entirely new setting, entirely new factions and units plus a number of other minor things, the price of Caesar in Gaul is borderline absurd. Almost twice the cost for a much less innovative expansion offering less features, released to an unfinished game.
