Total War: Rome II Review | WGTC

Chaz from We Got This Covered wrote:

I’ve always loved strategy games. There’s something about building up a civilization in my image and slowly conquering the world that calls back to my primordial instincts (or my not so hidden narcissism), and this is the only real chance I have to live out these fantasies. I was ecstatic to sit down with Total War: Rome II to literally rewrite history in my honor, and I was blown away initially with the updated visuals and cinematic touches. But after a few hours, the new coat of paint and updated mechanics started to wear thin. Total War: Rome II does everything it can to build upon what’s worked in the past, but never quite manages to break out of its own shadow. (PC, Total War: Rome II) 3.5/5
