    A Mackerel's disappointing journey through the latest Total War:<br /> <br /> (Hint: it does not end well).

    Rated on September 11, 2013 by M4cR1II3n

    At first, I was stoked. After all, Rome was my favorite Total War, so what could go wrong with an updated version of that? Turns out; a lot. Step 1: Okay, so the performance wasn't all that great? ...

    Amazing

    Rated on September 08, 2013 by TheBlondConn

    This game is really good it could be one of the best for you if you have the right type of computer that can run it well. It is very graphic intensive and uses a lot of video card memory but it is all...

    Worse Total War Game in the series... I am definitely sticking to Shogun 2 for some time longer. This is a super bloated game with menus that look like they were made for Windows 95. The menus are ...

    Total War: Total Disappointment

    Rated on September 09, 2013 by Astra5

    Let the devs finish the game before you buy it.

    Rated on September 09, 2013 by MrPunkFever

    Aside from the obvious lack of difficulty to pander to a more "mainstream" crowd, the game has actually LOST features that were ever present and super fun in previous games. Major factions are limited...

    Rome 2 is highly addictive, unpredictable and looks good graphically.

    Rome 2 is highly addictive, unpredictable and looks good graphically. I like the political intrigues, the battles on the sea mixed with the ground battle, the large diplomatic negotiation options. T...

    So much potential but with so little of it (currently) realised.

    Rated on September 09, 2013 by JimBob2424

    Rome II is a step back from Shogun 2. Fights are shorter, 90% town based and over in 5 minutes if you're lucky. Units blob together, the AI is either passive or straight up runs at your army/the c...

    Not Worthy of the "Total War" Title

    Rated on September 10, 2013 by edfathead

    Being a total war fan since 2000 I have watched & enjoyed the brand grow & evolve sometimes for the better, somtimes for the worse. Rome 2 totally takes it in the direction of worse in my opinion,...
