  3. New 'gun' style not as fun
    by Dubbs09, USA - Nov 24th 2016

    Really love the Total War series and was excited to try this one out. Just not as fun or satisfying as the old ones (Romes and Medievals). Units too similar and not as much variety as the old style melee and archer types.

  5. Excellent
    by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Mar 31st 2015

    The game is very excellent although not as good as Rome Total War which to me is the best strategy game I've played.This could have been as good as RTW but Creative Assembly deviated from the graphic style and gameplay of RTW though not as much.The rest of the TW series I'm having second thoughts about purchasing after the very disappointing Rome 2.I hope Creative Assembly would return to making games with the RTW style graphics and game play.After all it would not look the same if it is a different historical period like,say,about the crusades or world war 1 or 2 or the medieval period.

  10. Excellent
    by Seasond, United Kingdom - Apr 10th 2014

    I first began playing Rome: Total War before I jumped straight to Empire: Total War and Napoleon: Total War. I have not been disappointed. It's an excellent game that simply cannot be improved. You can essentially rule the entire world now! Having pirates is an excellent idea, too, as when I play a naval power (Spain, Great Britain, France) I have to dedicate resources towards fighting the silly pirates in the Caribbean. Gettof my islands!!

    If you are interested in colonial strategy, naval/land warfare, trade and diplomacy, buy this game. You will not be disappointed!

    One of the best Total Wars ever, it looks and plays better than ever. If you are looking for an immersion into the 18th century then look no further.

  13. Total War is total fun
    by Jesper Larsen, Afghanistan - Nov 20th 2013

    I used to love playing ROME, and this version takes Total War to a new level. The joys of massed artillery gouging holes in closed formations… What's not to like?

    Awesome, with bells and whistles!

    by szer, Philippines - Jul 17th 2013

    This game is something you would enjoy with realistic turn-based strategy tactics, quite realistic combat maneuvers, including a very awesome ai system that will challenging and is quite tough in the beginning, but keep playing, because it is worth it.

  15. Fairly good, enjoyable.
    by daisyborat, USA - May 6th 2013

    Intro movie -8/10 Got me excited and made me want to play
    Rain Animation -6/10
    Drawings -7/10
    Character Anim. -6/10
    Battle control -8/10 Faily good but hard to get the characters where you want them when you want them there.. Only becomes issue when in a 1-1 ratio, evenly balanced fight when control becomes the key factor to winning. I feel they could have made the characters a bit more intelligent, easier to control, and easier to tell what is what on the field.

    originality -7/10
    Sounds -7/10 A lot of the guns, ships, etc sound the same, needs more variety
    Length of play 7/10, lots of add ons and other missions, but the main game isnt that long

    Buy it on sale, it isnt worth 40 bucks. 30 dollars its a solid game, under 30 you definitley need to buy it, under 20 you are nuts to not give it a try. Thanks for reading.
