Total War: Rome II Review - PCGMedia

There is a huge amount wrong with Rome II, and although it's easy to get caught up in the hype, as a strategy game it's pretty weak, and does little to innovate on the franchise. It falls into the same traps, and got delivered to us far too early, when it was in need of further TLC. (PC, Total War: Rome II) 60/100

haha My brothers been playing this for days and hasn't seen any of the problems people are mentioning aside from slight lag in frame rate during huge battles.

60/100 = a games that isn't very good.

Rome 2 is a really good game with a few stupid bugs that will be fixed.

More like a 92/100 type game.

No its really not a 92/100 game, maybe when the iron out all the issues the score could rise a little, but I think a 6 is justified. I've had to restart my campaign numerous times and the combat just feels like such a mess in comparison to older total war games. I'm not saying the game is terrible, quite the opposite, you can see they have tried to implement many new ideas, but they have failed to implement them properly and the result is a game which you could probably convince most people is still in alpha.

I think the Guardians review of this game summed it up most accurately and with homage to the brilliant franchise,

"Rome: Total War is one of the most brilliant games I've ever played. Total War: Rome II inverts far more than the name. This does not channel the greatest military empire in history so much as the pale shadow of its ending; a bloated, technically corrupt and unfocused mess"

Yea I was thinking more like 92/100 once everything is all fixed and patched, not currently, but 60/100 is way too low.

The problems exist, regardless of how much of a hard on for Total War your brother has. Go watch Angry Joe's video review for footage of basically every point we brought up.

There are two ways of doing things:
Tell the truth and piss off developers/publishers, or ignore a games faults in order to please them.

Do some actual research. Learn about the problems with Rome II. Ignore the hype. Otherwise, don't bother posting.

60/100 pre patch 95+/100 post patch I'd imagine. You can feel a good game trying to break out of that glitchy buggy undeveloped egg
