In the vast array of video games that exist, few can be as detailed and required as much critical thinking as Total War.
Beginning with a single territory, few forces, and little in treasury, every Total War game magically transports the player to a period of history (American Revolutionary War, Napoleonic campaigns, Shogunate Japan, among others) and forces you to research technologies, create new armies, capture new territories, and best of all — fight 3D battles with thousands of your own soldiers.
Real-time strategy games, at the very least, owe Creative Assembly’s Total War series a salute. The latest installment, Rome II, which takes us to the 290 BC and into the AD era immerses you in battles, campaigns, and strategies of the ancient world.
So, how is it? Well, read on to find out.
