Default Total War: Rome 2

So, yeah, I don't understand all the hate it is getting. Sure, there were many bugs on release, but most of them have been fixed now.

At the same time, this is definitely the least good Total War game. I'd give it 6.8 out of 10, which is low considering the high standards of the series.

I'm not going to even try it after seeing quite a lot of footage.
So far all the Total War titles since Rome I haven't captured the feeling of that one. I still occasionally hop into TW:R and start a new campaign, it just got that epic gameplay feeling right of making even the simple things fun.

Later games just rehashed much of it without nailing that essence, or adding features that just didn't mesh for me.

And it seems the AI is notoriously retarded in Rome 2, which really kills it for me.

I regret buying it.

Nothing else i can really add to it as Rome was my favorite along with Medieval yet they have almost tarnished its name with Rome 2 (annoyingly after a good Shogun game). Even if the game gets better in time i will end up having to pay for all of that DLC >.<.

Even by Total War's standards, this launch was horrendous. I'm still staying well away until we're a couple of years in. Plus, aswell as getting a working/better optimised version of the game, at that point you can get the Game+Expansions+DLC on Steam for like a fiver, fapfapfapfap.

I got it when it was on sale and it's worked fine so far (barring some rather vexing graphical issues on my laptop, but I'm not ready to blame that wholly on the game). Admittedly anecdotal, and thus of questionable worth, but my experience has not been a negative one thus far. The UI does leave something to be desired though.

It is not just the bugs it is a shadow of Shogun 2 when it comes to features and the new ways some matches are just terrible having to hold a position rather than choosing how you fight.

I know. That's why I said that it is the least good Total War game. But it's not horrible. It's just an okay game.

Good game... if you like to take a multo-minute break fixing a sandwich or browsing the web while the AI is making his turns slooooooowly.

I won one campaign with Parthia and got sick of the game. Get to basic cataphracts --> KILL FUCKING EVERYBODY

Nothing beats Medieval II.

This game really bores me. Watching the fighting is cool, but the world map is soooo boring. I hate building.

This is down there with Empire for worst Total War game.

I enjoyed Empire more than Rome 2 and Rome 1 was my favourite.

RIP Warhammer Total War.

Empire's end turn was bigger.

Empire is my favourite along with Rome 1 and Medieval 2.

Empire is cool, but the map is very bland (might be because I've been playing far too much Europa Universalis IV as of late).
