i was a BIG fan of Rome, and disappointed by Empire (was burnt by the bad game and how it was released) so buying this was a gamble but given that most user complaints seem to be about the lack of DX11 at launch (which i can live with) i decided to take the plunge. boy am i glad i did.
just got through *checks* 84 mins of gameplay and i really like it. i really really like it. the UI is so pretty and period specific, the gmae runs well, and it's fun
. it's like they stripped the fluff that had been building from Empire and Napoleon, went back to basics, and refined it. really it feels fun and it's so immersive. i thought i'd only been playing for 30 mins LOL. tomorrow... tomorrow i'll probably be just playing.
i do think it needs AA though.
here are some pics.
i'm really enjoying it. hopefully that lasts
. oh, and do not underestimate Bow Ashigaru
