Well got home yesterday installed the game, loaded it up got to the main menu and started the prologue. Within 5 mins I was.......very disappointed. The new unit cards, albeit trying to keep in touch with artwork of the period just didnt do it for me. The whole troop option buttons are rather complicated while trying to field an army. Compared to that of the original which had the ease of getting your troops to do what you want in one click and continuing your massive flanking manoeuvre knowing your legions where going exactly were you told them too. I found myself having to pause the game repeatedly to organise unit types and get them into position. Really did take away from the enjoyablility of the game and it just became frustratimg. Then there was artillery. Nice edition to be able to fire it yourself if you could actually see where you where trying to aim.

City management.....personally the original was mich better. Gone is the feeling of oh good that will be ready in one more turn to what am building oh well that fish there will do oh wait I cant afford anything lets have a massive revolt. Oh good another battle that by the time ive figured out whats happening the enemies running and my troops have chased them in directions.

Perhaps it will take some getting used to. But at the minute it definately is no where near as fun, enjoyable or clean cut as the original. The neat ordered lines and bright colours have gone and the city management is not my cup of tea. But unlike the original you will have plenty of time to balance your cheque book between turns.

It may appeal to alot of people but personally if ive a few hours to kill id much rather play the original.

The changes are something to get used to, that's for sure. That said though, I am thoroughly enjoying it after playing a few hours in the Campaign...

I didn't run through the prologue, I'd rather just learn the hard way (when things go wrong) as that's the way it sticks for me.

The camera I'm not to keen on during battles.

It really seems to be less fluid and more stuck on axis but that could just be me...

Overall though I'm really impressed with the game, the graphics are fantastic, the AI seems half decent at the moment and the whole thing is less buggy than Empire Total War was on release!

Yeah I def agree on the camera. Although I doremember there were different camera options in the original. Didnt look for them in new game I played the campaign for a while myself. It will probably be very good once you get into it but that said it definately is a game that is going to take along time to get into to. If you know what I mean. Really didnt like the fact that if another faction wants to adopt a member of yours you had to pay to stop it. I would have been alright if by accepting they would pay you for him. Perhaps I should read through the encyclopedia first lol

Once I got used to the new layout of things in battles and in city view I enjoy it greatly, I like how cities give their bonus to the province itself, so like 3 cities can be upgraded max and you can recruit some pretty badass units then... also for the camera in battle and campaign map i just use QWEASD and it moves the camera pretty smoothly, I like that a lot more then using the mouse...

I think this game is bad in everyway.. i was hopeing for one of the best Total war game ever. big fan of total war game, mostly Shogun2.

to ME this Rome2 was a 50-60% copy of Shogun2, just graphic tweak& put whatever shogun2 does not have..

to me im very angry at how the game turn out to be, i don't no about all of you. i can say i hate it,

Half of what Joe was complaining about was bullsh*t though.
He was all "F**king naval battles are BROKEN! Look, I can't beat these agile warships with my troop transports, even though all I did was click attack once! IT'S SO BROKEN! PIECE OF SH*T! I'm telling them to ram that ship that's four feet away from it, and it's not ramming it! SO BROKEN... what do you mean ships need to pick up speed before it can ram another ship? Pfft, totally broken..."

I like a lot of his reviews, but he's so far off the mark with this one it's not even funny. No one's suggesting the game isn't buggy in its current state, but feeding over a million subscribers false information is extremely poor form.
