    WH2 is much better than WH1, I played the former first, and the improvements make the latter unplayable.

    Absolutely buy WH2 instead of 1 if you're only buying one.

    Obviously buy second if you’re some fancy elves lover. Otherwise buy first because Empire needs you.

    The second game now also has empire faction. Markus Wulfhart colonial campaign to eradicate the lizards.

    In general I feel that WH2 (especially when combined with WH1) is a tremendous game. I rarely find games that I enjoy anymore but this I can still sink 100s of hours into. This game is underrated on the codex imho.

    The sheer variety of factions, the cool units with great animations and the roleplay potential make it a great game. The AI has also improved quite a bit since the beginning, though obviously it doesn’t come close to a human player.

    Only an idiot can pay for the games, music or movies. Have no interest or drive to create something without getting money for it? Quit the idea, because it will be half assed shit

    It is great, without question. Shogun Total War was one of the first games I really got obsessed with, but I had almost given up on TW as a series considering the direction it has been headed. TW:WH has got me right back in, and in part it is due to the massive replay-ability, every faction and even LLs with different starting locations have such diversity in gameplay.

    Fuck Ca and their laziness, they didnt even bother to record new lines for this dlc: War wagons have outriders voice lines and huntsmen think they are crossbowmen :hero:.

    Do you even realize how much Charlemagnes would it be to implement?

    I had WH1 and then after Parabalus' advice, I bought WH2 and he's right - the QoL improvements make it worth it (probably not the full price) even if you play WH1 factions.

    When it comes to voices CA really did cut corners in TW so no surprise to hear it's the same in the latest dlcs.
    Usually all races have generic lines and battlecries/screams shared across multiple unit types if not the whole roster, or outright silence at times.

    That's fair, vote with your wallet, I'm also waiting for a sale myself on this one (I got plenty of games to chew my way through and even in T:W there's still tons I ain't done so am not starved for new content).
    I'm certainly not ok with the voicework as it's one of the biggest immersion breakers in my eyes but have accepted it as one of the many little things that annoy me about T:W.

    Such a shame that voice mods for total warhammer ain't a thing, for whatever reason that is. How hard can it be for example, to gather some english blokes to spout some more lines for the empire? I'd do it for free so isn't even a question of Charlemagnes.

    So it seems they've fucked up Nakai's campaign, but the empire side of things look really good according to steam reviews, reddit, and the total war forums.

    It's the lizardmen's second DLC and they still get shit :negative:

    Beastmen and Chaos Warriors want a word with you... At least Lizzy's still have a proper campaign mode. But yea, horde gameplay has been pretty terrible since the first game. You can see CA are taking baby steps to improve it. Norsca and Vampirates were pretty decent. Chaos Daemons will clearly be horde style so assume all of this is testing to improve it. At this rate its hard to see if its gonna be dramatically better tho.

    But I remain hopeful, I want the final combined trilogy to be the best game it can be as I have a feeling if CA ever revisit Warhammer it will probably be "Age of SHITmar"...

    Buddy of mine reported some army limitations like no more than two elite units etc. is it a new mechanic implemented only for dlc factions or for the base game as well? The latter would be incredible incline.

    There are no unit caps. Its just Markus is limited early on in what he gets, you can still doomstack when you get the economy going.

    Your pc don't mean much, this was already mentioned multiple times. Ssd is a must for game starting and loading battles, but with turn times you're fucked anyways.
