Today The Creative Assembly released a new gameplay video of Total War: Rome II showing a nice skirmish between a Roman army controlled by the AI and a Macedonian army controlled by Communications Manager Al Bickham.
so basically Age of Empires in HD next gen graphics??? this doesn't get me excited
The Total War series is completely different from Age of Empires. The battles are a LOT better under every point of view. It's a series with a lot of history, and honestly comparing it to Age of Empires is almost insulting.
obviously! god forbid I should get exited for another historic war simulation :D
Only it's not "another" historic war simulation
Only neither the Total War series nor the Age of Empires series are historical war simulations. Like I said, obvious trolling. I'd suggest you focus on improving your subtlety or your wit, but I think we'll all be better served if I just tell you to grow up.
why grow up? because I don't get excited over RTS games in HD?? man, ppl sure do get butthurt easily when you don't shower their favorite games with oodles of praise lol
This is like saying "so basically Quake II in HD next gen graphics??" after watching a trailer for Killzone Shadow Fall, or "so basically Pole Position in HD next gen graphics??" after watching a trailer for Forza 5.
yes, it's exactly like that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you are teh master of analogeez :D
About the only thing in common between the two games is that they both have soldiers and horses. Not sure where you are seeing any other similarities.
You realize it's a Strategy game with Real Time Battles not a RTS game. Think Civilization, but you play the battles.
I'm going to loose hours to this game. Naval and land battles at the same time is gonna be sweet.
Rome 2's in-game pronounciation of Macedonia/Macedon is really annoying me. Wtf is "Mack-A-Don?" MASS-A-DON or MASS-i-DON! MASS-A-DOE-NYAH or MASS-i-DOE-NYAH, surely. Come on Creative Assembly... Something about the graphic effect for javelins looks way off as well...
