About Total War: ROME II - Emperor Edition:

Emperor Edition is the definitive edition of ROME II, featuring an improved politics system, overhauled building chains, rebalanced battles and improved visuals in both campaign and battle.

In addition, Emperor Edition includes all content and feature updates made available for ROME II since its launch in September 2013. These include Twitch.TV integration, touchscreen controls, new playable factions and units, and Mac compatibility.
The Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack and all Emperor Edition content and features are free, via automatic update, to all existing ROME II owners.

About the Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack

The Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack is a new playable campaign for ROME II, which rivals the original ROME II Grand Campaign in both scope and scale. This campaign comes as part of Total War™: ROME II – Emperor Edition and is available as a free, automatic update to existing owners of Total War™: ROME II.
The Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack is set in 42 BC during the chaotic aftermath of Caesar’s grisly murder. The republic remains whole, but its soul is divided as three great men, the members of the Second Triumvirate, hold the future of Rome in the palms of their hands.

Octavian, Caesar’s adoptive son and the heir to his legacy.

Marc Antony, Caesar’s loyal friend and most trusted lieutenant.

Lepidus, Pontifex Maximus of Rome and the man who secured Caesar’s dictatorship.

With the territories of The Republic divided between them and the military might of Rome at their beck-and-call, the members of The Second Triumvirate are each in a position to make a bid for leadership, and rule Rome as its first – and only – emperor.

However, external forces are on the move, looking to exploit the instability of Rome and expand their own territories. Will you fight as a defender of Rome and defeat the other members of the Triumvirate? Or lead another faction on a campaign of conquest and expansion, and take advantage of the chaos as the Roman civil war rages?

Playable Factions

Players may embark on a new Campaign as one of the following playable factions:
Marc Antony
Lepidus
Octavian
Pompey
Iceni
Marcomanni
Dacia
Egypt
Parthia
Armenia (also now playable in the ROME II Grand Campaign).

How far will you go for Rome?

The award-winning Total War series returns to Rome, setting a brand new quality benchmark for Strategy gaming. Become the world’s first superpower and command the Ancient world’s most incredible war machine. Dominate your enemies by military, economic and political means. Your ascension will bring both admiration and jealousy, even from your closest allies.

Will you suffer betrayal or will you be the first to turn on old friends? Will you fight to save the Republic, or plot to rule alone as Emperor?

✢ Plan your conquest of the known world in a massive sandbox turn-based campaign mode (supporting additional 2-player cooperative & competitive modes). Conspiracies, politics, intrigue, revolts, loyalty, honour, ambition, betrayal. Your decisions will write your own story.

✢ Build vast armies and take to the battlefield in real-time combat mode. Put your tactical skills to the test as you directly control tens of thousands of men clashing in epic land and sea battles.

✢ Play for the glory of Rome as one of three families or take command of a huge variety of rival civilisations – each offers a notably different form of gameplay experience with hundreds of unique units from siege engines and heavy cavalry to steel-plated legionaries and barbarian berserkers.

✢ See exotic ancient cities and colossal armies rendered in incredible detail, as jaw-dropping battles unfold. Detailed camera perspectives allow you to see your men shout in victory or scream in pain on the frontline, while a new tactical cam allows a god’s eye view of the carnage to better inform your strategic decisions.

✢ Extremely scalable experience, with gameplay and graphics performance optimised to match low and high-end hardware alike.

This was my first Total War game, so i didn't know what to expect. This game was amazing and I loved it so much. Yes, the new update allows more than one civil war, but it was amazing adding a whole new thing to watch out for. I'd give it 9/10, just some glitches but it's amazing other wise.

This no poper defence,u have limit of amount of troops to graison your city.U always recaputing your cities,and I know that I did this in rome one,but at times it can be hard when more factions attack. I had to recaputer rome twice,then gave up because.I had ten factions at war with me.U also get there enemies,allies at war with u.I could not keep up with them.
U cannot lure them inside your city walls,like I did in rome 1,but ,when I defeated one army,And the other one army outside my city,I was able to lure them to my outside wall,then run back inside my city.Like I did in rome 1.they where defeated aventually,and after that I was attack by a another army,and then I lost my city.
When I played on easy I got futher ahead,when got some helpfull hints help me a bit,but I still think it was is poorly done.
Least the rome 1 u start with 3 allies.But here u might have 1 allie,versus 100,think about it,some people get up to 20 factions attacking them.U have to keep look out on every allie move as well as your enemy,they both can catch u off guard.

This game had a terrible launch but since the release of the emperor edition things have got a lot better. Most of the game breaking bugs have been fixed and the abysmal AI is at least playable now. I wouldn't let the bad AI take away from what is a very good, higly detailed strategy game. But nowhere near as good as the original. 8/10

Edit: I fully recommend you play this with the Divide et Impera mod.

Bought it, played it, hate it.
it gets dull so fast, everything seems so immensly tryhard when it comes to "re-inventing" the total war series.
rome 1 is still a hundred times better than this piece of visually appearling garbage.
in short rome 2 really is everything that's wrong with the new generation of games.
Dumbed down, childish, broken piece of trash that's somewhat visually better looking than its predecessor.
I don't know who in their right mind puts a pricetag of 50+35$ on this.

Don't waste your money and buy it on a massive dicount and see for yourself or even better... don't and wait for warhammer. total war... just make sure you preorder or you'll have fun paying for every dlc out of your ***.

I was introduced to Total War only last year, and since then I have played Medievil 2, Shogun 2, Attila, and Rome 2. Of those, I have to say Rome 2 is by far the worst. While it can still be fun, the game is just a sloppy mess that tries it's best to suck the enjoyment out of itself.

We'll start with the good things. The time period is fantastic. This is Rome during the height of their power, not the shadow of glory that is present in Attila. You can re-enact the war against Carthage, you can play as the ancient Greeks or Egpyt if you like, or even try to reclaim Alexander the Great's empire as one of the successor kingdoms. As I said, the time period is great and the map size is awesome. I love how at the beginning of the campaign there are dozens of different factions trying to fight for control of the ancient world. And the game is still a Total War game, with all of the positive things that that entails.

Now onto the negative. The game is a broken, complicated mess. Mechanics don't work as they should. Fortify stance giving you +50% reinforcement range? No, it doesn't. Units tend to blob up despite the use of a "formation attack" toggle. Morale mechanics are broken, I've had units at over 50% break and route even though they were "winning decisively." Your general is useless, he will always be one of the first troops to fall if his unit is attacked no matter what angle it's from. Sometimes units won't even follow orders. I had a unit of Roman Cavalry that I was telling to attack a unit of enemy slingers. Despite the fact that they registered the order, they stopped thirty feet from the slingers and stood there. No matter how many times I told them to attack they just sat there until they finally routed from losses garnered by standing in the line of fire for ten minutes.

Other battlefield mechanics make no sense. How are slingers dropping my Super Heavy Spear Infantry locked in a shield wall from the front? Then there is the truly broken: Pikes. You know your game has severe balance issues when multiplayer rooms are usually tagged with "no pikes allowed" because Pikeman > EVERYTHING. Without a doubt. I once had a unit of heavy swordsmen in a shield wall acting as an anvil for a unit of light pikemen. I then hit those pikes from behind with a unit of heavy melee cavalry. Both of my units routed without the pikemen taking any significant losses.

The campaign map isn't much better. Buildings are overly complicated with their bonuses and negatives, turning empire-building into a game of hardcore addition and subtraction. Capturing territories is extremely slow because the public order system is designed to bog you down. Generals will pick up negative traits for idling in cities after only one turn. The "political intrigue" system is boring, time consuming, and doesn't really have any effect on the rest of the campaign. The entire game just feels...Broken. This isn't even mentioning that half of the playable factions are locked behind a paywall. So you charge me $50 for a broken game that isn't even close to the whole package, then charge me an additional $35 to unlock the rest? What a joke.

What makes this worse is shortly after I played this I bought Attila. Attila is everything that Rome 2 should have been, which is even more upsetting because rather than fix the broken piece of junk they charged everyone good money for, they went ahead and just made another game that actually worked and said, "Sorry guys if you bought the crap that was Rome 2, go ahead and buy Attila instead! It works!" Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on CA, I understand that ♥♥♥♥ happens sometimes..And since Rome 2 they've really stepped up their game. Look at how TW: Warhammer is shaping up! Not to mention that they're walking everyone through that development every step of the way! I am, however, hating on everything that happened to make Rome 2 the piece of ♥♥♥♥ that it is today. This is the black stain on your record, CA, and you owe everyone by making sure that this fiasco never happens again.

In short, don't play this ♥♥♥♥. Either get Attila or Warhammer instead, or go with one of their older titles. Those actually work.

OVERALL: 4/10

After several patches, and with a healthy modding scene, it's a pretty great stratagy game. If you were turned off by it based on the early reception, it got a ton better so don't worry.

Attila is technically a better game, but I prefer the setting of Rome 2.

While the base game is relatively fun and balanced, it feels small. CA is holding the other 50% of the game hostage for over $90. Do NOT buy this game unless it's on Steam sale for over 50% off. I'd say the base game is worth $20 at best.

A Well rounded game that has provided me countless hours of enjoyment (around 3000 hours).
When compared to watching a 2 hour movie for 10 dollars. I have got my moneys worth with this game.
I wish that they didn't stray into the magical realm with the new upcoming warhammer total war but I understand you have to give the players what they want even if its steam punk meets harry potter looking crap that has gears with no function what so ever.

Before this the only Total War I had real experience with was Medieval 2, and I've gotta say, I'm glad I picked this up. Thank you, franchise sale, because Rome 2 is my favorite strategy game experience ever. The world map management feels like a combination of Sid Meier's Civ V and Total War, and the research tree is a cool addition to the building. My only complaint about the world map is that it does feel a little oversimplified; definitely do your campaigns above "normal" difficulty if you want a real challenge.

Diplomacy is easier to do than ever before and it actually makes sense; your standing with a particular faction and its allies will actually affect what kind of treaties they'll enact with you, if any at all, and you're less likely to encounter random backstabbing. (Although why my client states maintain military alliances with countries I'm at war with I'll never know)

The actual battles are the same as before, with a pretty UI that tells you all you need to know and the addition of abilities - not just the formations, phalanxes, fire arrows, and stakes that we had before - but things like war cries to rally your own troops and intimidate the enemy all makes battles feel better and grittier. All the different types of battles are great too, and it's awesome having an online battle work out when you're the reinforcing navy coming rescue your teammates :P

All in all, would totally recommend this game, especially as a good starting point into the Total War franchise if you want something that's actually historical and cool

Got this a lot later than release date. A lot of hate towards how buggy it was etc. but it's always been fine for me. Lags a bit in city battles but that's it.

A solid total war game at the end of the day and well worth buying now.

Now that the majority of the bugs from release have been patched, it's actually a fun game. Yes I am a sucker for the classical period (Rome, Greece, etc) so this game is fun for me and may make my comment biased. I played Rome 1 for hundres of hours like a lot of us fans have already done. So much like all of you I had high expectations for this game to be met... I'll edit this comment if there's anything that puts me off but so far it's entertaining me.

The game had a rough start with AI and all sorts of bugs. They have fixed that now imo. I find myself coming back to play this game over and over every time I get bored with another game. I would say that this game is awesome (as most of the games in the Total war series) and I really recommend buying it.

I have played all but one of the Total War games and I think this is a great addition. My only complaint is that diredting units on the battlefield can still be clunky but no more so than the other games in the series and in fact I would say it is a bit better in this edition than others.

It seems fairly well optimized for my PC, but I did have to turn down some of the graphics settings for the big battles when I had troop number maxes out. I run a GTX 760 though and I imagine if you have a 900 series card you should be able to play all maxed out. I got 121 hours of play out of this and did not even do the last scenario in Sparta. I may play that campaign later after a break, 121 hours and I think I have had enough for a bit, lol! I recoomend you get this game if you like the other games in the series. I had a great time with this.

TL;DR: What started as a complete mess is now a decent game where one can forge a vast empire, delve into political intrigue, put the sword to some barbarians and be back in time for the Circus Maximus.

All major bugs are ironed out, only a few small ones remain and none of them are game

DLC, Voice Acting, Music, GFX & Performance Ratings

  • The DLC is mixed. Some are tiny and perhaps should have been included in the base game such as the blood or faction/culture packs buta couple of indivual factions were offered for free. There A few extra "mini-map" expansions and a large "full-map" expansion are available. DLC is over priced for what is it, but the expansions offer continued gameplay and a bit of variety to the base game. 6/10

  • Voice acting is great, however a little more variety couldn't have hurt. 7/10

  • GFX is nice, obviously a little outdated by now but still very satisfactory. 8/10

  • Music is great, nothing negative to say. 9/10

  • Performance is very well optimized. Running most settings on ultra and 1920x1080 on an Nvidia GTX 480 can achieve anywhere from 25-45fps. This is great result considering how old the card is. No performance isssues whatsoever. 9/10

Gameplay

The campaign is fun however I found it hard to complete a "world domination" style play like in the original Rome Total War. Plenty of extra fun to be had with agents, political events and diplomacy. Diplomacy is the best of any total war game so far, no outrageous demands, no pointless betrayals, friendships can last throughout the whole game.

The battle gameplay is also fun however some battles can be over within 5 minutes, which is great for an arcade style playthrough but older Total War fans might miss the longer, more epic feel of previous installments.

Overal

7.5/10 - A decent Total War game with improvement and drawbacks over the original game. I highly recommend this game, however not for €54.99, wait for a sale.
