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
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.

Rome II is zowat de meest controversiële titel in de total war reeks. Het spel heeft waarschijnlijk het grootste aantal negatieve recensies van de hele reeks, hetgeen vooral te wijten is aan de catastrofale lancering van het spel. Het spel sloeg zo ongeveer elke vijf minuten tilt en was hoegenaamd niet afgewerkt. Het zou echter verkeerd zijn om het spel nu nog een negatieve waardering te geven. Jullie, als lezers, zijn namelijk niet geïnteresseerd hoe het spel draaide in zijn eerste levensmaanden, maar hoe goed het spel nu is. Ik kan jullie verzekeren dat de fouten weg zijn gewerkt en dat het spel zeker en vast een toevoeging is tot de reeks. Het spel start in de groeiperiode van het Romeinse Rijk, een periode waarin de geschiedenis nog steeds alle kanten kon uitgaan. Naast Rome bestonden er toen ook nog andere rijken zoals Egypte (Ptolemaeën), Syracuse, Carthago,...en dezen hadden nog steeds het potentieel het Romeinse Rijk uit te dagen en eventueel zelfs te verslaan. Hierdoor heb je (met de hulp van de nodige DLCs) een haast eindeloze hoeveelheid naties, die elk met hun eigen tactieken de Romeinse expansie kunnen stoppen. De fantastische kaart, de mooie steden en landschappen,... alles draagt bij om de speler terug te brengen naar deze uiterst fascinerende periode. Dit wil niet zeggen dat er geen minpuntjes aanwezig zijn. Vooral de agenten zijn voor mij een mislukking; door de overvloed hiervan kunnen zelfs zeer kleine tegenstanders een gigantische schade aanrichten aan je legers, en niet in het minst door je meest ervaren generaals om zeep te helpen. Daarnaast zijn ook de zeegevechten niet echt optimaal. De trage en logge schepen zorgen ervoor dat manoeuvreren praktisch onmogelijk wordt en dat je zelfs met een gigantische overmacht vaak nog schepen verliest tegen veel zwakkere vloten. Ondanks deze minpuntjes is het spel zeker niet slechter dan de eerste Rome Total War, hetgeen wel eens beweerd wordt door Total War veteranen. Moest je de keuze hebben zou ik echter wel voor de opvolger; Attila Total War kiezen. Deze laatste biedt namelijk veel meer mogelijkheden aan de speler, zowel op de campagnemap (met het vernietigen van steden), als op het slagveld!

I've been playing Total War games for over 10 years now. Newer releases are getting more and more sloppy in contrast to the work being done on graphics. Extremely dissapointed with this game series and I will not be purchasing any more Total War games.

I bought this game on a black friday sale for 15 bucks; I would have kicked myself if I'd spent 50 bucks on it. For 15 bucks it is totally worth it. That being said...


-Great graphics
+colors are not so vivid, giving a realistic appearance

-Battle cries are emtional and excellently done
+although random soldiers' mutters are repetitive, they are usually context-relevant and humanize the soldiers
+Roman Auxilary Cavalry voice is AWESOME

-Naval and land battle combination is cool, especially in siege battles

-Can command 40 units at a time

-Armies' unit cards are sorted intelligently (although this could be done manually in RTW 1)

-Grouping settlements into provinces allows for more fluid management, especially once you've expanded to an empire

-SPQR replaced by optional missions delineates gameplay allowing for a more sandbox campaign

-Imperium levels and corruption, although extremely annoying, reflect the instability and brutality of the politics of ancient societies (and modern, for that matter)

-Agents' passive actions (oxymoron?), such as Military Administration, Military Training, Spy Networks, etc., are cool.


-Cannot play as Sparta without DLC (who pays 50 bucks and doesn't want to play as Sparta?)

-Most historic battles are DLC

-Units glitch on walls
+many times when you tell them to move left, they first move right, vice versa
+in a Rome city defense battle I commanded, units on walls wouldn't obey commands or act at all

-Naval battles are bugged
+ships sometimes will get locked into moving the direction they are facing; never stopping until they slide into a corner of the map
+naval artillery/missiles will lock onto a land target's last location within their firing range, continuing to fire after they've left that spot until you command the ship to turn around or move out of range (commanding the unit to stop does not stop their firing orders)

-Cinematic kill sequences disrupt the combat simulation
+Soldiers attempting to pull back from combat will stop and turn around to engage in a fight sequence instead of simply being chopped from behind
+There are no backstap kill sequences
+cavalry kill rate while chasing routing troops is frustratingly slow since cavalry MUST kill with cinematic kill sequence when not charging
+one sequence, in particular, may involve a soldier striking over and over again for more than 15 seconds, digging him deep behind enemy lines without being stopped by surrounding enemy soldiers

-AI has not been improved since I last played Rome: Total War Barbarian Invasion v 1.6

-Blood and Gore pack acted as an "on" switch for delimbing of soldiers; no new fight sequences were added.

-General's/agent's abilities do not reflect their actions
+you may now craft an agent to accomplish any sort of task; regardless of what actual experience they have
+generals essentially cannot remain idle without developing negative traits, unless they have already aquired their maximum of three traits

-Agents are not as specialized and can be more powerful than armies
+it's easy enough to develop a powerful agent; powerful agents can cripple armies into not being able to move for countless turns.
+all agents can perform all tasks with some differences in outcome (reminiscent of Dragon Age 2 and Diablo 3's overbalancing of classes, removing stark contrasts in capabilities)

-Extremely limited diversity of buildings in settlements
+settlements, even capitals, are not unique from each other; essentially only a few dozen mix/match possibilities with hum-drum differences
+no point in preserving old buildings from another faction since they get in the way of your 3-5 building slot limit
+cities' appearance in battle mode do not reflect your personal development of that city

-Encyclopedia is poorly organized and disruptive of the game
+Previous titles simply required a right-click to open a single unit/building information card

Still very buggy even after a long time after release,most DLC's should have already been a part of the base game and some are completely pointless.
