An immense strategic Empire
Total War seal again approaching the ancient Rome to offer us his vision of the Empire. Do achieved its highly anticipated sequel live up to the one of the benchmarks of the strategy in the 21st century? The challenge was difficult, and perhaps not reached its brutal level of excellence, but Creative Assembly has been able to Jell an extraordinary game that ranks among the great RTS of the year.
Creative Assembly is one of the most respected studies of the world of video games, something that transcends and goes far beyond the particular genre that have become famous. To open a hole in the Olympus of the developers need to stop seal, and the British team achieved growing strategy of an amazing quality video games since the launch of the first Total War there by the distant year 2000. The best of this extensive success story? Probably there will be few people who differ in that is the third: the original Rome. With that one, the study was able to settle the bases of the series for the future in a way that is so short that he has allowed him to live since then, almost 10 years later, with a franchise that just has incorporated some elements with Bill drops on a general picture that has almost no observed changes.
Growing franchise team has dealt with different eras of the most disparate, have added much color to giant fresco of the historic wars of humanity who have been dealing with, but also played some second parts such as Medieval or Shogun, fueling the hopes of fans to regain the glorious Roman Empire for the brand. In the summer of 2012 the big news was made official, and since then the last few months have been an undeniable career go knowing news and count the days for the sale of awaited return implementation.

Total War: Rome II
With the final game already in our hands the sensations are as positive as expected, although it is also true that we expected more news. The continuous slope of Shogun II made sense from the corporate point of view by the releases of annual character of the series, but between him and Rome II there are two years of time: more leeway to bet on “signings” playable in nature. Aside from some conservative component, which obviously does not make the game less fun, we talk about a more direct than its predecessors title, one that offers less intermediate steps in the strategic part in shaping our troops or to manage our land, and that encourages us to more quickly reach the part that really wallows: the battles. This second raid of the saga in ancient Rome is, as the reader will have already deduced, less revolutionary than the original, but still among the releases of impressive quality that us has been providing the strategy genre in recent times.
