Conclusion: Dont waste money ......very disapointing!!! Medevial 2 gold much better ................they charge top price for a half finished game and then ask you to pay 14 for a few civilations that should be there allready 2 for blood that is literly just a tick of a box.
Conclusion: Overhyped at pre-order, this game turned out to be a massive disappointment in comparison to the rest of the franchise. It is a little better now thanks to the patches, but there are still silly things like making it complicated to merge units within an army, or the automatic destruction of walls and fences when a unit moves over then - In NTW and ETW you'd see individual soldiers jump over such obstacles.
Conclusion: I purchased this game thinking it would be the best game out for PC yet, it all look like good gameplay going through the tutorial but then the action begins and what can I say. This game is so memory and graphics dependent it make playing it almost impossible even on low settings! I have a fairly medium spec set-up at that, plus I'm hearing comments of people with high-spec rigs that they have performance issues.
Conclusion: I was a bit skeptical about purchasing this game on release as nearly all of the recent previous Total War titles have had numerous game breaking bugs upon release. And unfortunately they are still present but they are not too numerous and just mainly cause crashes back to the desktop and this is the reason fro dropping a star.
