    Well, Shogun 2 was the last Total War game I played. I've been browsing a number of Total War-dedicated forums and other social sites, and according to most of the regulars, Rome 2 is very well liked and often played for hundreds of hours. Attila on the other hand was very well liked at first, but the lack of unit variety and other issues (with razing, etc.) reared their ugly heads fairly quickly, so few if any played it for more than 100 hours at the most.

    Performance and stability issues were also mentioned, but most of them seem to have been addressed. Besides which, I have a pretty beefy rig: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ZkWkBm

    That said, I'm still not gonna D1P this game. I don't preorder or D1P ANYTHING, excepting the earlier Kickstarters like WL2, PoE, etc.

    Chaos is my preference.

    Tyranids > Chaos > Tau > Space Marines > Necrons > Lizardmen > Greenskins > Undead > Dark Eldar/Dark Elves > Imperial Guard/Men > Eldar/Elves > Dwarfs > Skaven

    Yeah, that's about right.

    I'm tempted to get it. After first -75% discount.
    Or, if the AI miraculously works not totally bad, and the "modding" is something more than ability to alter troop colours and starting positions, I might consider first -50% sale.

    Are there Let's Plays or Streams of it?

    I guess I could look that up myself... but :effort:.

    I'd be concerned if there were "reviews" of the game but no streams or raw videos. I don't tend to agree with reviewers and prefer to see a game in fully in action before deciding. "Professional" reviews are pretty much valueless to me making a purchasing decision.

    Is it me or the AI seems competent? It attacks him and when he tries to flank it also goes to the flanking units.

    According to this guy (whose review is also fairly good), performance and stability are much better than in Rome 2 and Attila.

    I've heard this as well, but haven't seen any benchmarks yet. I'm curious whether my Oc'ed fx-6300 will run it reasonably, or if it's time to sacrifice my wallet on the hardware altar.

    I'm fairly sure my i7 5930k OC'd to 4 GHz will be up to the task.

    Temptation to give in to the decline and D1P rising... must resist....

    I know my CPU is up to scratch. What worries me is my old HD7850. Thing is getting fucking old. I ran Rome 2 maxed out so hopefully this is not much higher.

    I'm watching moar vids and I have to say i never seen such good AI in total war stock games,,, only in modded ones.

    The AI is actualy fighting and not standing in one place waiting for you.

    Looking forward to erasing some grudges with extreme prejudice.

    As I said previously, this entry in the TW line-up won't change the world; it will be entertaining for a while. And that's all I ask of $60AUD.

    Whoa there, what kind of an asshole would think that games are supposed to be entertaining, let alone fun?

    If it doesn't meet the arbitrary :obviously: criteria which differ from person to person, it's literally unplayable.
