  • Summary: Far beyond the world and its petty wars there exists a dimension of pure, malevolent magic: The Realm of Chaos. It is a terrible place, incomprehensible to the mortal mind. It whispers promises of power, but to behold it is to be seduced by it. To relinquish your soul to it. To become it.Far beyond the world and its petty wars there exists a dimension of pure, malevolent magic: The Realm of Chaos. It is a terrible place, incomprehensible to the mortal mind. It whispers promises of power, but to behold it is to be seduced by it. To relinquish your soul to it. To become it.

    The four Ruinous Powers rule over this place, ever seeking to slip their bonds and engulf the world in a tide of daemonic corruption. Nurgle, the plague god; Slaanesh, the lord of excess; Tzeentch, the changer of ways; and Khorne, the god of blood and slaughter.

    On the border between the worlds, two mighty kingdoms stand sentinel: the stern warriors of Kislev and the vast empire of Grand Cathay. But each is beset by its own trials, and now both have cause to cross the threshold and send their armies into the Realm of Chaos.

    The world stands on a precipice. A single push will plunge it into cataclysm. And there is one who schemes to achieve just that, an ancient figure who desires nothing less than to wield supreme power. But to succeed, he will need a champion...

    The continual design evolution of one project split over three full games and dozens of expansions makes me hesitant to call Warhammer III a landmark strategy game in its own right. But looking back now at that very first trailer, it does feel like a promise kept.

    Total War: Warhammer III is essential for those who enjoyed the first two chapters, because it concludes the experience in a spectacular way.

    Even though it’s not a perfect game, Total War: Warhammer 3 is indeed very close to the ultimate Total War experience. The diverse factions, the epic campaign and the vast, beautiful world are guaranteed to draw you in and keep you in for at least a few hundred hours.

    Total War: Warhammer III wrapped up this saga with a colossal and quintessential experience, that feels like the end of this world. Hands down, it's the best one in the franchise and one of the 2022 Game of the Year contenders.

    Warhammer III successfully continues to present the blend of strategic gameplay and popular fantasy world with new races and a decent story.

    Total War: Warhammer 3 is the perfect example of a sequel done well. All the elements of both Total War and Warhammer universe fused into a game of epic proportions. Some innovation in the variety of missions as well bring a bit more freshness in the gameplay. Graphics as usual stunning, with scenery that looks like frescos.

    Warhammer 3 opens strongly. The narrative hook of the prologue sinks deep and the raft of tweaks to the strategic layer and tactical battles are all welcome. But it can't sustain the early momentum. The endgame objectives feel like a distraction, even though they're the main point, and serve only to diminish the entire campaign. The factions all have different reasons for wanting the endgame MacGuffin, but none of those motivations make a difference to how the campaign plays out. They're all trapped in the same Chaos Realm, going through the same motions, in pursuit of the same unsatisfying win conditions. In the end, Total War: Warhammer 3 is a good game--there just isn't a good reason to see it through to the bitter end.

Why would anyone want to play sieges 100%.What happened to land battles? As a campaign main CA really left us in the dirt. The Ai was bad in TWW1, TWW2, but its even worse in TWW3.
    If you are a tabletop player you probably think its the greatest thing since sliced bread. But I am not a tabletop player. This game was made for multiplayer only it seems.

    Know how MMORPGs start out with a clean setting, but then they sell more and more flashy sh!t until it all becomes meaningless? Things quicklyKnow how MMORPGs start out with a clean setting, but then they sell more and more flashy sh!t until it all becomes meaningless? Things quickly become over saturated when every new item has to outshine it’s predecessor. The new human Factions feel like that. Just an over saturation of gimmicks both in the form of way to magical units and excessive special abilities on the campaign map. The same is true for Chaos, but there it does actually work.
    The siege battles are bad as well, but hopefully someone will mod it once they get mod support to work.
