Since Attila has been released, I think it's a good time to give the final judgement to Total War: Rome 2.
If you are a Total War fan, then you should buy this, even though you'll be a little disappointed. Just wait for a 75 percent discount.
Many bugs had been fixed now, but there're still lots of them, that's a Total War game, you know, it's always like this.
The over all playing style is similar to every former Total War games, some new mechanisms are cool, and make the game more interesting, but the politic and civil war system sucks even though CA adjusted it for several times. If you're expecting a political strategy game, go and purchase CK2, this game is nothing but a series of huge war scenes with thousands of men, a TOTAL WAR.
Another bad thing is the DLCs, CA should not make so many DLCs, if you haven't buy the game, consider forget most faction DLCs first.
