    How not to make a TW game

    Fantastic game. The game runs great, I've encountered no bugs or bad AI, and the battles are epic and engaging.

    There seems to be a lot of complaints about the AI and bugs. Let me share my experiences. First off my computer has an i5, HD 7850, and 8GB of Ram. I have the graphics fully maxed out at the highest setting. This game... Read Full Review

    Criminal to release a game in this crappy state

    RTW2 is a game that looks good at a glance but that has SERIOUS problems both with poor AI as well as at the methodoligical level and has left many players gobsmacked. CONS: Gone are the winter, spring and fall seas... Read Full Review

    Battles are disappointing...too slow.

    Graphics are great. I don't like the settlement building queue method they have. I also don't like the technology queue either. The number of turns it takes to acquire a new technology is way too long. Sometimes, it take... Read Full Review
