Total War: Rome 2 - Emperor Edition, is the Eighth game in the Total War series and was released in 2013. Plagued with Technical issues when it was first released, but seemingly much better now with the release of the Emperor Edition, Rome 2 takes place during the height of the Roman Empire, prior to it's fall and the start of the middle ages. Bringing back Naval Battles, absent from Seventh Total War, Shogun 2, Rome 2, is a worthy sequel in the Total War series. The cinematics give a much greater immersion in the overall game than previous titles in the series, and the new real-time combat engine looks really good. I like the immersiveness of it overall. The tutorial is pretty straight-forward and if you are familiar with previous Total War titles in the series, there is very little learning curve.
With Total War: Rome 2, Your armies are much more customizable. and in some instances such as costal cities, you can combine both Naval and Land-based forces to overwhelm and conquer your enemies. I found the battle portion of the gameplay to be very fast-paced and fun. The turn-based portion of gameplay is just as expansive as we've come to expect in the Total War series. Mercenaries, Diplomats, Spies, you name it, Rome 2 allows players to utiize them all. The game has 117 different factions, with more available through DLC's. Each faction has their own strengths and weaknesses, some focus on trade or combat, others are more diplomacy oriented. The Grand Campaign allows for you to chose between 9 different cultures, and one of 3 different factions houses. The Prologue campaign is essentially a tutorial, that introduces you to the workings of the game. I had fun with this.
Overall, I thought Total War: Rome 2 was pretty good. As with several of the newer Total War titles, there are multiplayer options available. Custom Battles, Historical Battles all make a familiar return. Rome 2 is put together in a nice, neat package. I am interested to see where the series goes from here.
