Review: Total War: Rome II (PC)

Diehard GameFAN
2 September 2014
  • Summary: : Rome was not built in a day. Total War: Rome II wasn’t either, but it probably could have used some more time letting the concrete set. The seeds of a great game are there; the developers need to keep working at it until it is properly finished.

  • 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.

20 December 2013

  • Pros: + Focused experience, + Seasons and terrain have a greater effect, + New factions
  • Cons: - Battles are still too fast

Total War: Rome 2

12 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Imagine this: over 8,000 soldiers sporting gleaming armour, brandishing glistening swords, shields and pikes while behind them lines of cavalry soldiers try to placate their nervous steeds, steam pouring out of their noses, as they stare at a rapidly advancing mob of bare-chested Gauls.

Total War: Rome II

12 October 2013
  • Summary: 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.
