Total War: Warhammer Review

  1. I was so ready to hate this game.

    Here, prior to last week, were my thoughts on Total War: Warhammer:

    • I did not have the best time with the last Total War game, Rome II, finding it to be a bloated, soulless affair that undid much of the good work Creative Assembly had done with Empire and Shogun.
    • The move to Warhammer’s fantasy world was seemingly getting rid of a big part of Total War’s appeal: the history. TW fans, myself included, go as nuts about a game’s setting as they do the game itself, and seeing the series walk away from the real world was a blow.
    • This isn’t even the good Warhammer. It’s the dorky medieval one.

    Yet here I am, the finished product in my hand, and I’m a changed man. My misgivings counted for nothing. This is the best Total War game in years, and I was a fool for fearing otherwise.

    Very nice review. I was apprehensive about anything from CA after the Rome 2 debacle...but seems they poured their heart & soul into this one. Would LOVE to see a totalwar: Warhammer 40k...but one can dream no?
