This game is terrible
Hey guys,

I was expecting a lot of good stuff from my Total War Grandmaster Collection (Which there is a lot of good stuff) but there are two terrible games, Battle for Asgard and this. This is essentially a "quick-and-easy" mobile port. There are micro-transactions in this too even though you've paid for it. The game is very restrictive on how you move your troops and the balancing is close to non-existent. The graphics are pretty, but the gameplay is very repetitive.

Voice acting ranges from "Alright" to "Pushing it", the dialogue is very cliche too, destroying what might be immersion. This game is entirely played with a mouse, so if you have a very expensive keyboard optimized for gaming; tough luck, hombre.

The AI is terrible. I can move my whole army around a unit two hexes away and the unit won't make any attempt to attack, so you can smash their stuff and kill their general. There are puzzles involving the positioning of Shrines and when you beat these puzzles; you get EXP which is used for upgrading certain in-game items. But the upgrades are very small and costly, so you have virtually no choice but to buy EXP, but there's more! The upgrades are useless. So, you have a lot of extra stuff on top of what useless stuff they have already implemented. Great.

Thanks (un) Creative Assembly!

Close. Basically, I bought the Grandmaster Collection from GmG and this was included, I knew from the start it looked different and all that jazz. But the big problem is that it costs quite a bit of money and they had the audacity to ask me to pay more money for points and ♥♥♥♥ so I can progress.

You bought the Total War grandmaster collection, yet you're here complaining about a game ported from mobile?

Seeing as most of the TW games are solid and also seeing as it only cost me £25, that argument is irrelevant. Furthermore, a game that I had to pay any amount for should have at least some functionality and no microtransactions.

It's a $3 mobile game, one of very few in it's category on mobile. This was never made to be a PC game, it's just ported here.

If they bothered to bring the game to PC, they should make it a PC game and not just a direct port.

Reason being? It was only meant to be mobile. Bringing it here was just so people on PC could try as well.

have the game on my Ipad, and i love it with all my heart. Was hoping the pc version would be equally great. I was terribly wrong.

I personally don't know of the gameplay differences between the two versions (if any) but if the iPad version is anything like the PC version; I would still say it sucks.
