Rome 2 total war is a great game to buy for PC Gamers who want to play a strategic and realistic roman age war game. It is highly addictive and realistic which is also helped by the great detail in graphics of terrain and the soilders. Overall, if you're thinking about buying this game you should definitely as I played the first one and enjoyed it and this one is a definite step up and I was very impressed and played it for hours on end.
Rome 2 is in my opinion one of the best strategy games on the market. It offers 100s of hours of gameplay you will never get tired of. On release it has some major flaws, but I am sure patches will soon fix most of them. If you love strategy games and history, then this game is something I would recommend.
Game at its current state (September 2013) has some serious issues all explained at length in AngryJoe review (search youtube). But fixes are on the way and this week we are getting third patch. It seems that developers are really determined to make this game as much bug free as possible and maybe they will include some features they left out - I really hope so. Other than that MP, and Co-op are very enjoyable and another good thing about this game is that the campaign map is very beautiful. Also all battlefields are unique - whole campaign map is actually a big battlefield. Every battlefield is constructed from data taken directly from your position on the campaign map. At this current state and as a big fan of the Total War franchise, I would rate this game 7/10 , but if CA (developers) listens to our criticism we may get a very solid 8+/10 sometime in the future months if they continue to release solid patches.
When I watched videos of this game, I thought that it would be a great heir of first Rome: Total war. But when I played the game I was very disappointed.Game interface is very poor. It looks more suitable for RPG's, than for Total War series. It is very cumbersome and not such informative and understandable as in previous Total War games. Stylization is more antique and modern. And this is depressing because it ruins the games setting. But not only that the game soundtrack is not such memorable and beautiful as in previous games. It is just background music that make no sense. I can't say that games soundtrack is bad, but comparing with first Rome: Total war where in music set the tone for the battle it is just common music. Another drawback is global map. Visualization of it is excellent, but game mechanics was simplified. Now you shouldn't to plan what you will build in yours cities just because there only few choices and most of them are clear and plain. Armies recoveries automatically and when you ordering new units, they automatically appear in your army. Also your armies can cross seas without ships... They just transform into ships! And finally battles. They are quicker, but maybe it will be patched. The main problem of battles is victory points. Now you can see them not only in cities, but even in open field battles. You can simply win battle if you manage to capture and hold them. And no matter how small your army is and how big is enemy's army. During siege now you can just burn gates by every squad! Catapults, siege towers, ram, ladders? Forgot it! Just burn gates and run to victory points! Summing up I can say that this game is not that Total War that I played many years ago. It seems that developers wanted to draw new auditory, but not to satisfy those gamers , that played Total War back then. Of course this game does have some good new ideas, nice graphics ( but very very poor optimisation, so no guarantee that you will see nice graphics) and huge battles. And maybe, many people will like it, after numerous patches. Third patch is on the way, but in my opinion no patch will bring me the Total War that I liked so many years ago...
This game could be the best Total War game so far, only that there are bugs with AI, animations and textures, which spoils the game. Also, multiplayer could be made so much better (foir example, like in Shogun 2) and I hope that CA will do something about it. However, RTW2 is good and it is an interesting game to play.They have added bunch of the new improvements on political and economic level in the game, comparing to first Rome game.Campaign map is also improved and much bigger than in previous game. All in all, this is a game which every Total War fan must play.Strongly recommended.
It was buggy as hell. It became better after the second patch, but I didn't pre-ordered it so they could fix the bugs. I expected something like Shogun 2, which was awesome from first day. Also a lot of features either seem unfinished (like the politics one) or are entirely missing (family tree). It's the first Total War ever that I dropped playing right after its purchase and that say a lot.
As a lover of the Latin culture and the Total War series I was eagerly awaiting this release. I have to say: I wasn't disappointed. It takes a bit of getting used to in the map view, but the combat is spot-on from the start. Every little detail is there: arrows stuck in walls, good looking animations and detailed models. The sea battles are even more awesome, just ramming the enemy to the bottom of the ocean. A minor point is the AI: especially when they attack your settlement they can be easily lured into staying put, leaving you with nothing to do but waiting for the timer to expire and claim your victory. That may take a while though, as fast forward is everything but fast (even on an brand new Alienware). In short: brilliant for lovers of the genre, good for advanced gamers.
Short but crisp, nothing like advertised... At the moment the game feels like a giant beta test. A patch every week may be fine, but this was released at full prize and I thought due to the advertising machine sega pilled off it would be great. The game rears it ugly head and looks nothing like the videos or pictures CA and sega have pulled off. The AI developer was stating that the game has the most sophisticated artificial intelligence of any total war game yet. Let me describe this oh so good AI as: braindead. Maybe multiplayer could be a relief? It is not: lags drops desync everywhere and completely unbalanced units in my opinion.
A great updated version of it's predecessor. A definite time investor of a game with a greater emphasis on building an empire from the inside as well as conquest via keeping your populations under control and balancing the powers within your factions political system to prevent or encourage civil war. Well recommended to veterans of the Total War series and anyone with the willingness to get swallowed up by a game.
Total War: Rome 2 is the best Total War game yet. Steam have fixed all the initial bugs that were in the game at release so it runs great now. The variety of factions, units and technology you can wield in is fantastic. There's definitely something in this game for all kinds of gamers. Definitely worth buying! And Zavvi's service was great as always. The game was pre-ordered, and it arrived on time, so couldn't ask for any better service from Zavvi.
