It is worth buying. If you have a powerful PC it doesn't even need that much patching.

If you're going to go into this game comparing it to Rome 1, you're going to have a bad time.

I understand what you mean when you say Rome 1 was your favourite title of them all, but if you look at how the series has changed over the years, and how much it's changed from Rome 1, you should know that, apart from the setting, Rome 2 was never going to be anything like the original.

As it stands, it's not as polished or fluid as Shogun 2 (Yet), there are some niggling bugs that are in the process of being ironed out, and the new province system and such takes some getting used to, but overall I'm enjoying the hell out of it - 63 hours played so far.

The modding community over at TWcenter are in full swing, changing various aspects of the game such as 2 or 4 turns per year to get more out of your generals, reduced squalor/food issues, improved graphics, Unit cards, uniform alterations and recolours, and someone has even unlocked every single faction. All of these mods are after just six days of game release, and considering how CA released the DB files on day two and have promised more help in the near future, I think it's safe to say there will be a lot of stuff available to tailor this game more to your liking.

So, yeah. If you pick up this game and go into it with a purist hat on, you're probably going to rage. However, if you pick it up and go into it expecting a different experience and resolve to give it a chance, then I say go for it; it's a half polished diamond.

I enjoy the game, my only real issues are the grit/afternoon lighting and filter, army limitations making it so I cant have my usual small roving patrols, and the squalor system which I hope to rebalance for myself in a mod in the future. I don't like that every army has to have a general even if it's just a single unit. Some things REALLY should not cause squalor such as the higher tier farms.

Graphics are pretty darn good, I just want to get rid of the gritty filter and the afternoon only lighting. I crave mid-day fights and morning battles.

The maps don't vary all that much in a region but I can deal with that just fine.

The AI for me has been acceptable but they're really annoying and half the time threaten me for money while asking for treaties.

It's pretty darn fun to play other than that. It is a pretty buggy launch for many so unless your PC is a good one it sounds like you'd be better off waiting a month or two for the bugfix patches to roll out.

it actually seems to be the other way around, the people with problems seems to be in the high end with pc's (myself includet), while im seeing people with 2-3+ year old rigs running it fine (fps wise)

from everything i read sofar on the forums, it would seem that the more recent pc you have, the higher risk of it not working


.....which is sad, to say the least

oh and to answer the OP, no, the game in its current state, is not worth getting.

even if you dodge the bullet with fps issues, the game itself is majorly screwede

Like other said, the game needs heavy patching. But it's bugged because (so it seems) CA released it 1 month before the predicted time, so it's in a sort of "beta".

Personally, since I was DYING to play with it (I was one of those who hoped for a ROME 2 after MEDIEVAL 2, when CA announced instead SHOGUN 2), I accept to trade a lot of bugs for an early release. Even BETA!

Not this guy again, we've heard you, go on the total war forums for this nonsense, if the game doesn't work for you it is no reason to constantly bash on it on a forum (this one) that has quite a few people with few problems running it (myself included).

That's my 2 cents

If you like strategy games and don't mind sacrificing battles for history and strategy then buy Europa Universalis IV instead, not only is it a better game it is also way more realistic and accurate.

Rome 2 was rushed by Sega and i don't think mods or updates will be enough to save it from damnation.

Avoiding games with Sega as publisher is a good start.

so the game not working, is nonsense?, how interresting, please tell me more


the guy asked a question, and i told him the facts , deal with it


the bashing, as you call it, is completly justifed, and im already on the forums, where my tech support request, got buried under the other million threads crying out for a proper fix on this poorly codet game

i'll keep doing what im doing, so others won't have to waste money on this product
