Total War Rome 2 First Impressions

Spread the Word!


I wanted to wait until next week to post this but I think it’s only fair that I do it now since I’ve already put over 20 hours in the game. As you all know this game is unplayable for a lot of people. It was unplayable for me as well and it took me four hours to fix it or at least make it acceptable enough for me to play.I’m not going to bother telling you how to fix this game because there are already two articles on here that explains how to do it and if you’re one of the few people that haven’t read it you can find it here . Total War Rome 2 is a really fun game. I’m having a blast playing through the campaign as Sparta, and Rome right now. I actually like the fact that they sped up the combat because I always thought it took too long to actually get the fight started. There are however a ton of issues with the game right now and I can’t actually recommend this game to any of my friends until I know that they’ve been fixed.

I had a huge problem with the fps when I first started but I did manage to fix most of those issues. I like the new design for the UI, and I love the new technology tree that they’ve added in. Diplomacy isn’t perfect but it’s an improvement over previous Total War games and the fact that you don’t have to kill everyone is something I like. I’ve established trade routes throughout my entire kingdom and it’s awesome. The cinematic mode that’s been added in the game lets me see first hand what it’s like on the battlefield when thousands of men clash into each other.

It does have a lot of bugs right now though. Sometimes i’ll see a guy run through a wall, or just do strange movements but for the most part it works. The naval battle system could use a little tweaking but I don’t have any major complaints about it. I actually really like going to war overseas. Seeing my army board another ship and kill everyone is quite a sight. Hopefully most of the problems will be fixed with the upcoming patch and i’ll be able to run this game in it’s full glory without all the problems i’ve been experiencing. Until then if you guys enjoyed reading this click the follow button for more awesome content and I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

      I would love it a lot more without any of the game breaking glitches.
