Review: Total War: Rome 2 Emperor Edition


The strategic bản đồ which you use to lớn see how your various armies & cities are doing looks incredible…


Total War: Rome 2 was originally released late last year lớn some rather indifferent nhận xét, on release it had many bugs and problems và even though it was released nearly ten years after the original Total War: Rome game it wasn’t regarded as much of a step forward và in fact there were many gamers who thought this was a step backwards with poor AI and some fairly boring game mechanics. Now a year later it has been released with a lot of extra add ons and DLC as the Emperor Edition. So have the twelve months been spent well by The Creative sầu Assembly? I really hope so.

On first viewings I was astounded by just how much nội dung you get in this version of the game, if you bought the game on release last year many of the updates you will receive sầu for không tính tiền. In the emperor edition The Creative sầu Assembly have stated that they have sầu updated the politics system, as well as general graphical updates và many improvements to lớn the in game AI và early on I have sầu khổng lồ say that the game shows very few of the problems reported on release.

The main core of the game is split in two; firstly you will be introduced lớn a turn based game where you overview the bản đồ managing your cities, moving your armies và ensuring the future growth of your empire. This is supplemented by the real-time battlefields where you will take direct control of your armies as they battle lớn vanquish an invading force or you want khổng lồ storm a fortress to take control of a new area of the map. The strategic map which you use to see how your various armies & cities are doing looks incredible, there is a lot of detail on show, including weather effects such as fog, rain & snow, all of which change according khổng lồ the seasons of the year.

Like many real time strategy games you are likely to need a fair amount of time to lớn get the most out of this game as there is much more to it then just clicking on an army & waiting for them to destroy another. The tutorial at the beginning of the game really is a rough guide, this is a very detailed game & to start off with the game really does just show you the basics such as how lớn move your army, which formation you should use và how khổng lồ defkết thúc from a strengthened point. If you are not used lớn or have sầu not played many real time strategy games then all of the options will be overwhelming to start off with, & Total War has so many options that you will discover the more time you spover playing it, such as hidden units in the forests – having these guys sneak round the flank of an enemy unknown và then rush out behind them is great to see and it does make you feel lượt thích a true general out smarting your rival.

The main part of the game you will want to play is the real time battles & I have sầu khổng lồ say that The creative Assembly have nailed them, they play out brilliantly. One of the criticisms of the original release was that the AI in the game was tuned to lớn be quite dim, but now with the updates this is no longer the case, battles are difficult, as they should be & more importantly they are challenging. There are times when they feel frustrating but I found that the more time I spent learning various strategies I was just missing a way how khổng lồ tackle a certain army. The battles you take part in take time, they are not quichồng events that you can just breeze through. Just like war itself you have to lớn take time planning và coordinating your army. Thankfully the computer controlled AI is also fairly good. A few times you will wonder what is going on but generally they react how you would expect them to lớn.

The chiến dịch that is in the Emperor Edition is really fun khổng lồ play through, it is phối after the death of Julius Ceaser and is apparently faithful lớn history. From the start there are a few major players to contend with and you bởi vì feel as though you are only one turn away from a huge rival deciding that they want lớn wipe you off the map, from the start you feel as though you are in at the deep kết thúc and this feels different khổng lồ how other RTS games introduce the players into lớn a campaign, often with many slow and easy chiến dịch missions for you to cut your teeth into lớn. This need to avoid all out conflict is where the diplomacy comes in to lớn play, you will need to use this to lớn forge allies, you can offer cash or trade routes lớn build relationships with other powers. There is one gripe with this in that the game does a pretty poor job in explaining how to lớn use the politics and diplomacy from the off, you feel like you are learning on the job with a fair amount of trial and error. But perhaps this is how it should work, you wouldn’t know how the other side is feeling until you approach và then offer them đơn hàng.

I have sầu been very impressed with Total War & I find it hard khổng lồ believe that this is the same game that was hammered on its release a year ago. The Creative sầu assembly should be congratulated on all of their hard work in bringing this game up to scratch as it now is a hugely detailed and deep game khổng lồ play through. But at the same time, they should not have been allowed to lớn have released such a mess, many people who purchased & played this game my not come back lớn it and I feel that would be a shame as it is a genuinely great game now with hours và hours of gameplay khổng lồ be had.

This game is now one of the best real time strategy titles available, it’s just a shame it is a year late.
