Total War: Rome II Review

maximum pc
14 February 2014
  • Excerpt: It didn’t take long, but we soon came to a point within our Total War: Rome II empire-building where it would have been much nicer to just build a big wall around our smattering of conquered lands, put up a “Go Away” sign or two, and live out the rest of our days in boredom and serenity.
  • Pros: Gorgeous battles and strategic map visuals; naval combat; built-in Wikipedia-like help system; compelling tactical elements within general combat.
  • Cons: Too many factions; turns take forever; micromanagement abounds; city-building lacks depth; army-building lacks urgency; graphical hog.

Mygamer
25 October 2013
  • Excerpt: As empire building games go there are only really ever two series worth mentioning; the first is the town building, population management simulation that has politics and wars fought more as chess pieces on a board than anything—that game series is Civilization .

  • Summary: Veni, Vidi, Sust�nui Picture, in your mind's eye, a testudo . If you're up on your Roman history, you'll know that I'm referring to that ancient Roman formation in which soldiers tightly align their shields to protect themselves from every angle as they advance.
