Dynamic flames during battles is one of the major improvements of Total War Attila. The negative point is the need for very powerful hardware to enjoy it. The Creative Assembly has created the best strategy game of the year, again.
The horde and all that comes with its invasions really gives a new spin to the gameplay. Rome II fans will feel at home, especially when playing sedentary populations, but when you take control of the nomads, everything feels fresh. Moreover, the devs took care in solving some of the main issues of the predecessor. That's more than enough to please fans and newcomers as well, even if the core gameplay remains the same.
It is probably most hardcore total war game with survival game elements. It is the graphical and mechanical enhancement of Rome 2. Mod library variety is also really good. If you are into survival and strategy games you'll probably like it.
Very solid and beautiful game. The theme is awesome - one of the darkest and most dynamic periods of history, greatly represented by the game. Campaign map is very pleasant, UI is nice and colorful. Game mechanics like siege escalation, religion, seasons, governors, diplomacy - all is great.
Battles are very diverse, unit types distinguishable with their role, but all and all quite fast paced. They actually need to be more tactical - less micromanagement orientated, still can be moded fairly easily.
This game is the last proper historical Total War.
Eto ebanaya konveyernaya parasha! Kogda Sega uzhe perestanet` ubivat` Total war? Igrat` v etu huynu ne interesno, ved` vse raspilino na overdohuya DLC! Pust` sega soset i ne ubivaet CA i total war, suka bleat`!!!!
I wish I could have enjoyed this game more - however so many frustrating things keep adding up until I just uninstalled it.
The game is incredibly buggy with massive problems with pathfinding, AI cheats blatantly and makes it virtually impossible to win, the user interface is clunky and difficult to follow. The custom battles as well are confusing as custom army setups seem to be ignored and generated automatically.
It's a real shame because there were moments in the battles that I really enjoyed, but no where near as much as the earlier Total War games.
Sad to see the franchise going this way.
