Getting better with each patchhaystack84 | Nov. 25, 2013 | Review of Total War: Rome II Emperor Edition
Unlike some people, I was able to run Total War: Rome from the first day. However, it was laggy, units blobbed together in huge mosh pits when they clashed, the the speed of battles was arcade-like (5 minute battles), and the AI was terrible.
After 7 patches though, the game is much better. The AI is better, the battles are slower and more strategic, and performance is vastly improved. CA is doing a good job with their patching and each time they patch it, the game gets better. They seem to really be listening to their customers, which is a welcome change from past CA games which only had a few patches that didn't address their customers demands. With a full modding community, I can only see this game get better with time.
