Video imminent, duders!

Edit: That ended up taking forever to process -- cursed YouTube!

I wonder if my laptop would just laugh at me if I tried to play this on it.

And good review and video. It's a bit disappointing the AI hasn't evolved much, but I don't think this should stop people new to the series from getting it. The sense of power and scale in the original was awesome.

I have played rome total war since it originally came out and have been anticipating this release for a year. I have been a fan of strategy games for over 25 years and i am extremely disappointed. The graphics are nice it takes so long to get something to work you feel like you won the lottery or something. The encyclopedia which is suppose to help is very aggravating because it makes it difficult to scroll down because the writing is so small. This game is just way to technical, it is definitely not a fun game. It's a waste if time and money.

Even though i think it's a great franchise, i must say that this is not even worthy of a 8/10 score, the AI is way to dumb, doing stupid crap even on some of the highest difficulties, It will attack a giant army over and over again, why small armies that just gets destroyed, it's kinda pointless to build a dedicated navy, as embarked soldiers are just as effective. And the AI seems to be even dumber on the battlefield, by being very indecisive, running back and forth, never doing anything. I have even seen armies just run through a point completely filled with troops, just to get to the flag, not fighting the army they are trying to run through, resulting in them getting completely slaughtered.
The day 1 DLC and multiplayer desync issues are pretty horrible as well...
