WTMG's Thomas Medina: "Total War: Rome Remastered is a tough one. It’s dated, and despite being a simpler title not a gateway into the franchise. Three Kingdoms is the easiest entry for newcomers, Warhammer is king of variety, and Troy is the intriguing one. Then there’s Rome II which is the currently leading classic Total War experience. Rome Remastered is kinda…just there. I honestly wonder why it was even chosen to be remastered, I feel like we’d be having a totally different conversation if it was Medieval instead. Still it’s here, it’s fun, and it looks great. So if you’re looking to experience some classic classic Total War gameplay, then this is exactly what you’re looking for. Everyone else, there are better Total Wars available. For cheaper too."
