Total War: Attila review – Hun-gry for battle | Metro

The Total War series offers you the chance to personally usher in the Dark Ages, in this stunning-looking historical strategy game.

There’s one obvious explanation for the dearth of historical settings in video games, and that’s the lack of machine guns. With the occasional exception of cowboys, the Second World War is as far back as most action games will go; because any more than that and you’re talking either rubbish guns or swords – and although the latter is no bad thing it’s a lot harder to create an entertaining sword-fighting system than it is a first person shooter.

The story is too old to be commented.
