Great DLC, but worth the money?tyleroi | Jan. 23, 2014 | Review of Total War: Rome II - Greek States DLC
I received this DLC with the pre-order for Rome 2. The three civilizations make for a very different play style as you don't do nearly as much fiddling with the internal politics of your nation. In addition, Greek military units are interesting to field and are far more than just a pallet swap of any of the other civilizations provided. That being said, this is almost certainly a money grab on the part of the company. There is no reason that they couldn't be included in the original game short of wanting to first secure pre-orders, then to make some extra money. That said, it is an addition to the game.
Short version? I think the DLC is great and adds to the game. Whether its worth the money is up to you, but definitely don't buy it when buying Rome 2. Play that first and figure out if you think this DLC will add anything for you.
