First 8 Hours Review - Unfinished game, a step back from Shogun 2 0

With the number of bugs, lack of polish, poor performance (a visual step back from Shogun 2), and straight-up missing content, Total War: Rome II serves as another stark reminder to not purchase AAA PC games for at least a month after release.I've only played through the prologue (very weak tutorial), a few hours of single player campaign, and a few hours of multiplayer campaign.

Few things were more satisfying than watching your elephants flatten a troop of hoplites or see your calvary break a line.
