Total War: Rome II Review | Quarter to Three

Tom Chick: "The more I play Rome II, the more I feel a crushing sense of disappointment and even betrayal. It’s like being a kid at Christmas, gleefully ripping the paper off the box for a new toy and snatching it out of that box. Look, Mom, it’s Rome II. Rome II, I tell you. But the more you play with it, the more it falls apart. It doesn’t work like you expected. It less and less resembles the awesome pictures on the box. It’s a lesson in the limitations of plastic and paint and cheap manufacturing. But what’s most galling about Rome II is that Creative Assembly taught us no such lesson with their last game, Shogun 2, with its stately elegance, its carefully weighed back-to-the-basics approach to their traditional gameplay, and even the flashy multiplayer chrome around the edges. Shogun 2 was the Civilization IV of the Total War series. Rome II is the Civilization V."

The AI is kind of stupid but othe then that I think it's a solid game. I lam enjoying it. Also 1 out of 5? Come on dont be so harsh...

Abriael1025d ago

Now, this is just disingenuous. The game has flaws, even rather big (mostly technical) flaws, but 1/5?

Clickbait and a disservice to readers.

arbitor3651025d ago

clickbait is what quartertothree is centered on. i guess you werent here when he gave Journey a 2/5

Abriael1025d ago

I missed that one. Goodness..

Story Quality = WTF
Like Website = NO

Rome 2 is like a 8/10 or 9/10 even with the A.I. glitches.

C.A. knows this and are making a huge patch to fix the few issues.

1/5 is just a LOSER website trying to get hits (u got NONE from me)

I'm enjoying Rome 2 and so far it's the best Total War ever.

Roccetarius1025d ago

Seems pretty spot on to me. Rome 2 is a rushed game, no discussion.

The_Kills1025d ago

Why do they now need to patch this game with this short list of fixes to the games basic failures and not its core stupid gameplay decisions?

Did they also not play this game before release? Are they that oblivious or incompitenet?

Drasill1025d ago

Isn't this the guy that gives all big name games really low scores? Look at his Halo 4, The Last of Us, and Bioshock Infinite reviews....

arbitor3651025d ago

yes. he is a pathetic, pretentious, attention seeking Dbag who defaces great games in order to get hits. and for some reason metacritic and gamefaqs still use his reviews, even though his site is irrelevant and his reviews are garbage

starchild1025d ago

Jeez what a freaking loser.

HeyImBen111025d ago (Edited 1025d ago )

Don't even bother, he is the ultimate troll. He gave TLOU and bioshock infinite and more great games a 6.
