    ''700 different units'' Does he mean it like Parthian eastern spearmen, Armenian eastern spearmen, Bactrian eastern spearmen? That doesnt really count, they even have same stats.

    • deamongimli
      deamongimli 4 years ago

      @Disdain for Plebs I don't know its just..... different. I like Rome 1, I like Shogun 2, I like Rome 2 emperor edition, I like medieval total war but for some reason I just don't like the combat mechanics of Attila. I think its just the difference of unit strength and type mixed with the low unit variety. Its just a bit tooo barbarian like for me I think

    • Voieux
      Voieux 4 years ago

      The combat system is exactly the same...

    • deamongimli
      deamongimli 4 years ago +1

      +Disdain for Plebs I didn't like Attila but I did like Rome 2 Emperor edition. Don't get me wrong here Attila is a great game its just that I don't like the combat in it, I prefer the organised combat of Rome 2

    • Voieux
      Voieux 4 years ago

      @Bob Marl
      Only sometimes Med 2? That is considered the 2nd best, then Rome 1...
      Just take a look at the steam reviews.
      Has a higher % of positives to negatives than even Shogun, although lots of TheXvidrs say Shogun was the best.
      Plenty disliked shogun because the units did not differ to much between some of the factions.
      I have also heard people say Rome 1 or Med 2 are the best, Shogun 3rd, Attila 4th and Napoleon 5th.
      I think graphically Attila is pretty stunning, apart from collision and the DLC flood there was not much to complain about, the game itself was well executed.

    • Voieux
      Voieux 4 years ago

      @Bob Marl
      What? Hardly, a lot of people would consider Attila to be one of the best TW games to date, I don't know what you've been playing...

      @Milan Klinko
      having problems running that game on windows 8 atm, but sure medieval 2 is one of the better total war game alongside shogun 2 and the legendary rome 1, not to mention it is set in one of the best time period for a total war game, and the graphics are still beautiful especially for a game that came out nearly a decade ago.
      Wtf happened to CA?!!! For their sake Warhammer better not let us down.

    • Limitess
      Limitess 4 years ago

      @Masterchief Don't listen to retards. Unconstructive trashtalk won't get them anywhere.
      Anyways, ROME 2 SUCKS BULLSHIT, get something else, Hearts of Iron IV will soon be out for example.-
      Medieval 2 total war. I have played over 70 multiplayer campaigns and the community is still alive I swear, but the multiplayer campaign stuff is best - not 2 player bullshit in newer TW's. We play 17 players, and it's fun as hell.

    Even after all the patches i still prefer the old Rome.
    Its just amazing how they keep saying they will fix everything since day one and still there is coming out all this DLC which i wont even consider buying until they fix their AI, the balancing, the crashes, the flawed diplomacy and on and on

    • Limitess
      Limitess 4 years ago

      @F3LDK0CH Still playing Rome 1 even today...My Parthian empire ftw

    • Preacher of Nothing
      Preacher of Nothing 4 years ago +1

      I bought the emperor edition just now, and first off - all the bugs from his review are gone.
      The enemies are an actual threat both in campaign and in battle, the AI, while not fantastic, is pretty decent and the game is sometimes really challenging even in the lesser difficulties. 20-40 (not really counting) hours later - it has not crushed even once.
      Though the multiplayer still sucks, and the diplomacy is boring and useless - I already forgot the purpose of it. All that you need to do is give a promotion or two every time the other families gain too much strength in order to keep the balance of power.
      But overall, I'm really digging into this. Challenging game play, a much simpler management system (so you don't have to waste hours on choosing the right building), and really fucking fun.
      I hear Attila is pretty good, so you might want to skip into that, but otherwise, if you still want to play this one, you should buy the emperor edition.

      yeah poor joe he was one of the most hyped persons for empire and it was pur eshit and then he was totally hyped for rome 2 and of course it was pure shit lets hope attile is not pure shit because the reveals showed that they will actually add the things that were in shogun or medieval that for some reason they removed in rome 2 lets hpe attila is good i personaly love the total war series im a big ass fanboy of it and it was so cool when they used to teach history in medieval 2 and rome 2 just by pressing right click

    Give the guy a break, he's not only one who worked on the game. I wish I had alien ware or something so I could actually play a total war game XD

    • Nicolaj Nielsen
      Nicolaj Nielsen 4 years ago

      People don't buy alienware to play games. People MAKE a computer with individual components to play a game.
      People, like my mom. If she were to play a game seriously as i do she would buy an alienware becouse she would have no clue what to buy. Alienware USED to be the best pc's for gaming. That is Faaar from the truth now adays and you clearly don't know that yet. I can go out and Make a PC that cost 4 times. LITTERLY 4 TIMES less then an alienware and it would still run better, faster and play smoother with 60fps.
      You know how i know that? Becouse i know plenty of people who have done exactly that!
      And give the guy a break? Are you seriously trying to give them a break after a year of the game being released and telling others to do the same? The game is as shit as ever! The only difference is: No flags and Decent AI! The AI is either too fucking stupid or just too fucking stupid! They either stay in their city protecting it from everyone or they just completely trash their economy to buy 60% army of slingers with a few cavalry that you can't counter very well becouse its only like 5 turns in!
      Game is shit and it will always be shit. They can't fix it.

    • Kaizo4613
      Kaizo4613 5 years ago

      @Philip Paul You basically bought an apple computer that can play games. It's overpriced for its performance. You could have bought a computer a lot stronger with the same price you paid for the alienware.

    • Philip Paul
      Philip Paul 5 years ago

      @Brian Dennis People buy Alienware to play games, not for its great personal pc ability XD I got one and I really only use it for that, great gaming computer, crappy as anything else really.

    • Brian Dennis
      Brian Dennis 5 years ago

      Alienwares are overpriced and horrible. Also yeah he isnt the only one but he sorta lied right to joes face about the game being better then it really was on release but its not as broken ad it was before but patch 14 has really fixed the Ai so the game isnt as broken as before.

  • Petr Kotlitel
    Petr Kotlitel 5 years ago

    i bet he saw the review and i bet joe knew he knows and that is why they so gently wrapped the battle topic.. but still, what kind of super intelligence do we expect? There is a strong army closing in, computer marches against you to confront you where you dont want gain time, overview and to try to kill the general.. then the city defense. In regard to the campaign map, its fine.. mechanics of the battle however was a different story :)

    I have never had problems (major game ruining ones) with Rome 2
    Why is there so much hate, its good now, and mods will help.
    Yes it has flaws, but respect it, try and make a better total war.
    Go ahead and fix those problems yourself instead of whining.
    Are you hating because other people are?
    I love this, and just hold on there, the next total war is sure to be good.
    Shogun. Medieval, Rome, Medieval, gun, gun , Shogun (skipped medieval) Rome, Medieval, notice the patterns, they may make another total war of such but if you actually like this like me, its just a thing (not part of message)
    Either way, stop, just stop,go fuck off somewhere else if you hate it...

    • SS
      SS 5 years ago +1

      They added features and then they took out some. AlL they literally had to do was copy and paste (well not literally as that technically is not possible but you get the idea) features from shogun 2 and the basic Senate system from the first rome as a baseline for the domestic politics of the empire which was fanfare by CA as one of the most exciting additions to the campaign, when in fact it is almost completely pointless and can be ignored for the entire duration of the game. The list goes on and on, just watch Reynald Sanity comprehensive criticism of the game There are major design issues in this game, as angry Joe said, the streamlining they tried to make this game more casual is beyond stupid, this production may be worth 60 bucks, but it's fundamentals are lacking to the point where it's not a noteworthy product. And are you fucking kidding me? Patches and mods? Mods for total war were originally meant to make the game hardcore or just enhance the experience, with rome 2, it's everything CA can't patch themselves, it's a HOTFIX FROM THE COMMUNITY FOR FUCKS SAKE. You must be as Steve Jobs would say "a fucking B team member" , to say that who gives a hoot if it's buggy A.F. upon release to the point of gamebreaking. Who would want to pay 60 bucks for a product that doesn't come out as advertised? Products shouldn't be broken on release, the fact that that is ok with you completely puzzles me as it lowers consumer expectations for the quality of goods which is dangerous. and the fact that a company is releasing patches every week is not ok, it means they either have shit work ethics, a shit team, or all in all its just a complete cluster fuck of a company.

    • heynub123
      heynub123 5 years ago +2

      They fucking charge money for playing as different factions e.g. sparta and they sell it to us in different bits... fair enough if it's a different DLC like barbarian invasion or alexander for rome total war 1, but selling different factions? they can go fuck themselves
      They didn't do this shit in rome total war 1... The battles are over really really quickly, it takes fucking forever when I'm ending turns, I do more waiting than actually playing, the battles are all like a fucking moshpit.. You'd think that legions and other units would learn to stay in fucking formation after years and years of training.. and the AI has not improved at all in the battle field or the campaign map, it's even worse than rome total war 1, They've taken out the speeches before the battle...
      And what the FUCK is up with the flags? why the fuck do i have to capture a fucking flag in the middle of fucking nowhere? what the fuck? and they give you like no time to capture it back... this is complete bull shit, The battlefield and the campaign in rome total war 2 is not immersive at all, it's the worse total war game out there.....It's like they want to break this total war series
      The game is fucking broken..., it's fucking pathetic and it's just a big fuck you to all the total war fans

    • Nik
      Nik 5 years ago +9

      Regardless of the bugs, the game itself is a broken, shambolic, overpriced piece of rushed nonsense. The AI is awful, the worst its ever been, the ui has been destroyed and there is no immersion whatsoever... the campaign is dull and lifeless, with many broken features, such as pointless generals and a diplomacy system which leaves you in fits of frustration.. not to mention the fucking unbalanced and historically inaccurate depictions of just about every faction in the game.. I will for the first time ever seriously consider whether or not to buy the next installment in the series.
      It is blatantly clear that the folks up at CA just don't give a fuck anymore, and would much prefer fucking us all over for a quick buck, bastards.. :(
      from a depressed and infuriated fan of total war since 2004...

      CA made excuses to having too many Dlc's that they couldn't make any money if they didn't flog as many Dlc as possible, which reviewers like Jim Sterling have blown to bits years ago.
      CA have gone full greedy, blaming SEGA doesn't float with me.
      I'm sure SEGA have nudged, but CA have the blame here and I don't trust them anymore.
