    Both historical and fantasy fans were disappointed by Troy cause cosplays

    Now they are making 3 modes, one with full monsters like Age of Mythology

    another full realistic

    and the third one like the base game


    this is a really good move

    I just want some russians to rip all the mythological models and port them to Rome 2.

    Ancient Greek mythology is not something we see every day in video games, so this might breathe some life into this game. I'm actually interested now because it reminds me of Age of Mythology.

    Being an imbalanced mess where half the units don't work right due to animation issues.

    Isn't this game 1 year old? Shouldn't these issues been patched already?

    I don't know, but this is CA we're talking about. They usually have lots of issues that should have been patched already.

    They never really fixed Britannia either. This is their B-Team after all.

    Eh, that just means I'll be following the further development of this game and get it at bargain bin prices if I deem it playable. I also don't have a lot of experience with the Total War games since I've only ever played a bit of Warhammer, so I doubt I'll feel the issues as accutely as a fan of this series. I'm a sucker for this kind of setting ever since AoM and it's super rare.

    This will be a shitty tacked-on mode just like in Three Fantasoydoms. Historychad titles aren't just about unit sizes and armour appearance.

    The game is as dead as Britannia and no amount of tweaking will change that. But people pointed out that this would happen from day 1.

    If it channels the Age of Mythology spirit, it might attract some fans, me included. As far as I can gather from skimming a few let's plays, there aren't enough factions and that kinda hurts replayability. It's only the Greeks vs the Trojans. Are the Amazons a faction of their own or are they aligned with one of the two major ones?

    When I played it they were essentially aligned wth the Trojans (all factions will drift to one side or another after a certain amount of time).

    Yeah, I see how that might be a problem and hurts replayability. If they add more civilizations (Egyptians, Hittites) with different objectives and myth units, I can see the game gaining cult status and having a large enough audience to justify more work on it.

    That would be great, a map of the Mediterranean with all the kingdoms of the time like Chariots of War.

    But it is not a popular topic, perhaps a group of modders.

    So, how shit is it? Releases today and I tend to enjoy greek/roman Mediterranean settings, didn't even mind Rome 2 for one full playthrough.

    Edit: OK, just saw the price. Forget I asked.
