About This Game

About Total War: ROME II - Emperor Edition:

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.

✢ 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.

Det bedste strategi spil jeg nogensinde har spillet og det er ikke så avanceret som Crusader Kings og Europa Universalis, men jeg vil højt anbefale det og også syntes jeg personligt at det er et af de nemmeste Total War spil helt klart 10/10 ;D

Launched with many bugs that made the game unplayable. However, 14 patches later and I can finally say that this game is worth buying and playing. I have stuck with it through this time since I wanted to get my money's worth out of it... and now I can say that I have, and I can recommend it to anyone else who is a fan of strategy and Total War games in general.

While this game is definately playable (Though ideally when heavily modded), this is not the successor to the orginal Rome which Total War veterens wanted. It's more akin to Empire: Total War in its structure and yet more simplified. Its controversial released combined with the dumbed down approach to campaign management (the province system, general system and recruitment system) means that I would recommend any other Total War title (with the exception of possibly Empire) over this one. However the game has been patched to a level where a new player to the Total War franchise should at least consider it , however I would suggest you wait for a sale ($60 is not worth it for this game in my opinion).

On top of this, the game seems to have shed some of the aesthetic features which made the first Rome so immersive. The lack of a family (while not required) means that you feel little to no immersion to your generals. They're just "spawn general and give him a random name", a tool to be used worn out and thrown away. Emperor edition has not changed this other than the presence of a few historical generals in the Imperator Augustus campaign and the limited use of them as political tools to gain gravitas.

The same can be said for the politics system. While the concept is great, the exectuion leaves a player feeling likes its strapped on to the side, since there was no actual politcal positioning involved other than gathering Gravitas (The resource the game uses to increase politcal support percentage). [Edit] The Emperor edition patch has fixed this somewhat by adding a politics tab which you can use to determine your overall politcal standing in the same way the senate slider functioned in Rome 1 as well as guage the risk of a civil war. While there still isn't an organised map of senate positions (where you would be able to determine how high up your general is in the senate), it still places faction politics into a position where the player can see its benefits to the faction as well as its relevence to the game over all. In the original Rome, having a high ranking general in the senate (Consul or other high ranking positions) felt like it was of immense importance in terms of your standing with the senate. But you don't feel that connection to your generals. Its like theres supposed to be a connection to the senate but there is none to be seen apart from a rank which isn't really displayed.

The armies and recruitment system is also a step backwards. The number of armies you can field at one time has been hardcoded with a limit based on your faction's Imperium level. This severely restricts your capability to spread your forces, as they limited to working only within an army. You cannot detach a small force to bolster a garrison and you find your self forced to move an entire army in order to swap a few units between them. The recruiment is linked to these armies aswell, so you cannot have an army on the move and produce reserves at the same time. This all has a severely negative effective effect on your ability to field armies in a dynamic manner. The arguement for this change has been to stop random small ai forces jsut roaming your lands for no reason, however in my experience, the only difference is that these warbands now have a general at their head and a raiding stance icon above them.

Navies in this game are virtually useless due to uncanny strength of transport vessels. This is due to the fact that armies now automatically form a fleet of transports the moment they are ordered into the sea. Considering that a considerable portion of Roman conflict occurred around the Mediterean, this ability to magically make a transport navy appear out of thin air is a major oversight, as it renders navies pointless, as transports make equally effective fighting vessels. The ramming mechanic is messed up to the point that a light skirmisher bireme can sink a heavily loaded quintareme filled with marines in a few hits, rendering most expensive naval vessels useless.

The province system restricts your ability to build your cities by hard coding them into two presets, provincial villages and provincial capitals. Capitals can build practically any structure and have pre-built walls which cannot be improved in any manner. Villages by contrast can only build certain building types and cannot be fortified in any manner. This greatly diminshes the ability to customise your empire as it existed in the original Rome. In other Total War games, every settlement was the same preset, it could be built up, fortified and garrisioned as needed. You could created industrial or military cities where you wanted and when you wanted. This is something you simply cannot do in Rome 2. On top of this, the limited number of build slots which has haunted the last few Total War games also makes a return, limiting what you can do with the city's space.


[Edit] After 15 patches the vanilla balance of units atleast feels good enough to credit the combat in this game. Graphically stunning with only a few things to nit pick such as the inccorrect modeling of the hoplite phalanx.(use the argive grip please)[/edit]

Rome 2 has finally become a playable experience similar in many aspects to Empire. For a new comer to the Total War series, this game would be worth a look though not at $60, however from the point of a veteren of the Total War series, this entry seems far more restrictive than previous titles and I cannot recommend this game over other Total War titles. Instead you should consider other Total War titles like Shogun 2 or the original Rome.

[Edit] After 15 patches the base game has reached a state somewhat similar to Empire. It is now a decent game and newcomers to the Total War series should have no problems with this game. Regardless because of the cost of the game (60$) combined with the misgivings I've provided above, I still will not recommend this game when the other Total War titles provide a better experience at a better price at the cost of only graphical quality.

To address the questions regarding my over 300 hours of game time, yes I've continued to play Rome 2 despite my concerns (And with several mods to boot) , however I feel that my concerns mentioned above are still legitimate.[/edit]

Rome II had a bad start with a lot of bugs, and even now some bugs are still present, but the developers are trying hard to make patches for the game, and it have helped a lot!!
Even tough Rome II had a bad launch, with lots of bugs I still enjoyed it.
And with so many mods to support the game and make it fun, I find that it is worth the money.
Many will disagree, but im also not a Total War veteran, but have played since Napoleon Total war.
And I find that Rome II is lots of fun!
And Be aware, more pathes and fun mods will come for this game :-)
