"There are still kinks that could be sorted out, but Attila is one of the best Total War games I’ve played. There’s more variety, better AI, and design improvements over older Total War games that I gladly welcome. It’s still not the perfect grand strategy game that hardcore fans will hope for, but it’s a great addition to a niche genre. Except for The Huns. Screw those guys, plundering sons of bitches."
