I’ve played many games in this series, including Shogun: Total War and Total War: Rome, and I have been amazed each time by the improvements in gameplay and graphics. This title is the most impressive yet, and I can easily see someone sinking in hundreds of hours — without running into constant reruns of gameplay or visuals.
Я огромный фанат Тотал вар и я рад что есть такая часть этой гениальной серии как Тотал вар Рим 2 ,эта часть собрала в себе все самые интересные механики во всей серии и добавила свои, игра получила плохие рецензии из-за слишком раннего выхода, когда большая часть багов и системных ошибок не было убрано. Но разработчики доделали проект и в итоге эта игра стала одной из лучших стратегий за всю историю игровой индустрии.
At the start, the quality was not very good. But, over time, we managed to make a lot of additions correcting gameplay and expanding the player's capabilities. The project is essentially an icon of its time.
As with previous Total War games, the consequence of all those detailed and interrelated systems is a sometimes-obstructive interface and erratic AI. If you grow to love Rome II – and there is a lot to love about this game – you'll love it in spite of its persistent flaws and frustrations.
The silliness of turning history into a tactical land grab is worth mentioning in order to point out that the Total War series, and much more Total War: Rome 2, won't appeal to everyone with its tedium exchange.
I am astonished at the state of this game. Did they think that I wouldn’t notice the clumsy interface, the wretched documentation, the absolutely untenable naval combat, the weird bugs, the lock-ups, the game-killing glitches? Did they think I wouldn’t notice the AI? Did they really think this was an acceptable AI for a single-player game? A single player game with disappointing multiplayer compared to the clever multiplayer in their last release?
#New review Rating: 7
After the last patch, this game is finally in a state I can recommend it. No need for mods anymore to enjoy it. No need to buy the DLC either. CA finally delivered.
# my old review Rating: 3
overhyped, underdelivered. Even the Total War: ROME II - Emperor Edition does not deliver satisfaction. The sieges are no challenge. The AI not very smart. I hope they will learn and make quality some day. Until then I spend my money somewhere else.
The difference in scores between users and the critics probably give it away, but this game did not deliver on its promise. instead it insulted many Total War fans.
Right from launch problems arose when the game wouldn't run, crash, be littered with bugs and glitches. And if you got passed that, you'd discover that game has nothing to offer but a broken experience. Features that had been present in Total War games like the family tree was gone, the AI was so broken that it was nearly impossible to lose.
As for graphics, it looked good in pre-released footage, but not in the actual game. Even beasty PC's didn't get the beautiful graphics that were shown, and instead had to sit and watch The Creative Assembly sell The Greek States DLC for additional money. Insulting to say the least. And, the mutiplayer is broken, because it constantly desynches or crashes.
So what's actually good about the game? Well, it does some interesting things with city building options, and gives some new naval combat that wasn't in the series on this level before. There are many factions, though probably too many to even function.
This game single handedly made sure i will never pre-order a game again, let alone try a new Total War game. It is broken till this day, and it is a bad show all together. i give this game a 4/10.
