As a fan of the first title, I could not pass on Rome 2. The patches (8 so far) have refined what was admittedly a botched beta into a fairly good game, its features ranging from "room for improvement" - like some aspects of diplomacy, internal politics, and AI behaviour in both maps - to "quite satisfactory" - historically, graphically, most aspects of balancing -. It is indeed a rough diamond, and surely it was prematurely launched, but so are most games. Still worth it if you like the series. Even so with more time given to patches.
Total War: Rome 2 is actually is fun to play, but there are a lot of flaws that reduce the fun. I've been a fan of the total war series since its beginning and I must say Rome 2 as it is now is a little bit of a let down for me. The map is huge, the battle maps are many, the units look good and are many as well... so are the factions. And since you have many factions on a huge map it can happen that you have to wait several minutes until your computer has finished calculating its turn(s). Concerning the graphics I must say that I don't see a huge improvement from Shogun II Total to Rome II when it comes to battles... the campaign map itself actually does look much better. The music and sound effects have always been a huge asset of the series and Rome 2 is absolutely continuing this legacy of good work The gameplay is left with a huge potential for improvement. Politics in a faction are practically non-existent. Diplomacy seems to be incomplete and utterly simple with unexplainable restrictions (No exchange of provinces for example... which can get quite annoying). Adjusting economic options like taxation, food production is not difficult to handle at all but very important in order to keep your faction going. Conclusion: As the game is now I would give it 3 of 5 stars. You can obviously see and feel the "total war" in it and it makes a lot of things right, but without proper patching and fine tuning I wouldn't even add it to the "top 3" of the series (still with the potential to become one of them after getting rid of the current problems).
