Summary: I loved this game since the first one but I was skeptical about this edition because of the reviews I have viewed last year on it. But now with the new update (Emperor edition) the game was overhauled and became as great as it was before.
Summary: The latest entry into the Total War series looks to hit a homerun. The graphics are tremendously well done, the interface is enhanced while still utilizing the layout that we're familiar with - one nice update is that unit information is more readily available. I've only played thru the prequel, but so far everything from formation buttons to unit AI seem like an improvement.
Summary: This game is amazing, I just bought it for $7.00, And I put 15hrs in this weekend. I cant believe this game is 10 years old. The AI in the game is awesome, and I am amazed how little the game glitches, or acts up. I have the game on max settings for hours on end, and I can zoom right in on any character on the battlefield, and the AI responds very smoothly. I can't wait for Rome 2. This is my first RTS, and I picked a winner!!
