Not worth the wait.

  • Summary: The original 'Rome Total War' is one of my favorite games. So what could be better than a newer version, what a dream. As it turns out Rome II is a disaster, the strategic and political situations have little analogy to this ancient world. Diplomacy is worse than the original game. The tactical battle work, but the rest of the game is less than mediocre.

A Double-Edged Sword

  • Summary: I'll admit that it's difficult for me to review this game from a completely objective standpoint; I've spent more time playing the Total War series than perhaps any other video game series, and have eagerly awaited the release of every subsequent game. That being said, college and studies prevented me from really delving into both Empire and Shogun II, so the bulk of my total war experience has come from the Medieval II and Rome I. Especially Rome I.

Wish it would work

  • Summary: I've loved the past total war games I decided to buy this game. I read all the reviews that said people had trouble making it work. But that couldn't happen to me right? Well little did I know, I would have the same problem. I'm sure this game is great, but 7 re-installations, multiple patches, every fix I could find on the internet, and 3 days of fiddling around with it later and I've just about had it.

Game won't load into computer

  • Summary: We were sent a game that had been previously registered. Therefore the company would not allow a 2nd registration with the same CD key. WE thought we were getting a new game. Instead we were sent a previously used game.

  • Summary: Granted the game was very buggy when it came out, but the patches have made it playable. My computer is pretty average and it runs it fine. Recommend this game to anyone who likes the genre.

This game deserves its place in the trash. If not the toilette since its utter crap.

  • Summary: Had so much potential but completely wasted. I had fun on every total war but this one just feels lacking. I would start to play and within minutes I find myself yawning. To add insult to injury, the launch was a complete disaster. Then they tried to cover it up by saying that it only happened to a "small percentage" of gamers. 1) This is complete BS because they wouldn't have to make that statement if it only happened to a small amount of gamers.

Do not buy until reduced to $5. Its not worth more than this.

  • Summary: Huge disappointment. I don't think any of the patches will fix this game as they have fundamentally ruined the total war game experience. I eagerly awaited and preordered this game. I have been playing it since I got it. Holding out hope that it would improve. But last night after a weeks holiday I came back to it, and decided it was so boring that I went back to Shogun 2. That made me want to right this brief review.

What a disappointment!

Earl Sandwich, Amazon

  • Summary: Terrible. As a fan of the first Rome Total War game, I eagerly awaited this game for months and pre-ordered it. When it arrived I immediately installed it and connected it to my Steam account. The first week it was literally unplayable. After 2 months and and 7 major patches the game is still boring and glitchy. I finally realized this game is never going to meet my expectations and I've uninstalled it from my hard drive. It really is not a fun experience.

not as good as I expected

  • Summary: It is not as good as I expected. I'd prefer SHOGUN2 more. The moving of player's view is changed and I don't like it.
