Rome Total War II

Rome-2-Total-War.jpg

How far will you go for Rome?

 

 

It's finally here ladies and gentlemen! The sequel to the greatest strategy game of all time is upon us and it looks amazing. Creative Assembly have pulled out all the stops for this one and it looks like it might just be the best Total War in recent memory, considering the disappointment of Napoleon onwards. Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to play the game yet but once I get my money game up and make sure my laptop can handle it, I'l be running straight to Steam to download it. In the meantime, here's a link to some reviews and the official website.

I'm surprised at the lack of replies, it's Total War!! Though it is early days.

 

I loved Rome, was such an addictive game, as the rest of the series is. I just hope my wee laptop can handle the new game.

Yeah me too, thought pretty much everyone had an interest in this game. Hell, this is the only PC game that some of my mates have played.

Never heard of this game

lol really?

how old are you?

 

anyway, I'm really looking forward to this.

Total War is - of course - the definite modern RTS in my humble opinion. I've played every installment since the first, and I'm not even that much of an RTS person. I typically play action / RPG / FPS games more than anything. but Total Wars have never failed to disappoint.

 

and I still believe that Empire is the single best game of the series.

but I'm really looking forward to going back to Rome. hopefully it's a better remake than Shogun 2 was.

 

Shogun 2 was fine in terms of gameplay, but unfortunately the campaign itself was so utterly boring.

there's no replay value in Shogun 2 like there is in most Total War games because there's no variety. no matter what dynasty you picked all of the units were the exact same, just different colors. and the goal was the exact same no matter what side you were on; to reach the heart of Japan.

 

so it doesn't matter how many times you play, everything plays out exactly the same, but from different directions.

they cannot let Rome 2 fall into this trap. every faction needs its own UNIQUE units and UNIQUE goals for conquest.

Hell yeah!!! Very excited for this game, I've always had an affinity for ancient Rome and Greece and of course love the total war series. Unfortunately, because I've only just recently seen the light of PC gaming I have not had the chance to play the first Rome total war game, I might just have to try that out considering Christmas A.D. MMXIII is a little ways off. My one hope is revamped diplomacy and enemy AI, as those are my two main complaints of Shogun 2. Those screenshots look awesome BTW.

Rock Paper Shotgun Interview

Really excited for this.

Those screenshots look astounding! Looks like sea battles are to be expected.

 

After what Shogun II delivered, Rome II better not fail to impress. I'm definitely going to keep an eye on this one. icon14.gif

you should read the interview that was included with the screenshots.

 

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/07/02...me-2-interview/

 

they have confirmed that Rome 2 will feature sea battles on the same battlefield as land.

meaning that during the same battle, the scope might be so large that you are controlling both infantry and naval units on different fronts of the same map.

 

huge battles will be possible, bigger than any previous Total War game.

That'll make micro-managing that much harder but so be it if the battlefield is now expanded to such an extent. Excitement level just shot up here haha.

 

One interesting thing I'd look forward to is more diversity in the cities. The first Rome TW impressed me with the fact that buildings that were built in the city were visible when attacking, and this was remarkable at the time. With the technology we have nowadays, I hope to be able to see certain cities such as Rome have their own distinct layout when attacking instead of just a generic large city, and just be able to bask in the beauty of the city as I'm tearing it down with artillery and whatnot. This will make attacking much more intriguing as opposed to Empire Total War where there's usually just attacking a star fort of some sort in siege battles. This kind of repetitiveness on such a large map is something I could do without.

 

The soundtrack of Rome TW was also superb, and the little things such as the commanding officer giving speeches deriding the opposing force also added to the experience of the game. These qualities absolutely must remain in the remake.

Anyway, looking forward to playing this game. The A.I looks immense and that has been one of my only gripes with the Total War series. I don't think my PC will run it too well but nevermind. There's always hoping...
