Dont expect a Rome 1 sequel, and its a great game

waya264 | Oct. 25, 2013 | Review of Total War: Rome II Emperor Edition

There's a lot of hate for the game because it is not the great update to Rome 1 that many veterans want, and complaints that it caters more to the casual crowd. After 5 patches, and some free DLC, this game is a strong title in the Total War Series. There is a lack of immersion in some aspects but I love the new unit cards and updated province system. No more dealing with exponential squalor, or build everything in every city. Province specialization is really important (but would matter more if the AI wasn't so dumb). Give it a couple more months to iron out the AI and you will spend hours lost in Ancient Rome.
