Pixels for Breakfast writes: Total War Rome II is a fantastic addition to the series, combining both new and intuitive features with the tried and perfected formula of Total War. Aesthetically pleasing and professionally optimised, the game runs like a dream and looks even better. While there are still AI issues the improvements that have been made definitely make the experience a whole lot better. Playing feels more rewarding than what I have been accustomed to. The bottom line as always is that I can see myself playing this for a long time to come and enjoying every single moment.
