Apparently, the game isn't worth buying either. Total War: Rome II A Total Mess

True!!!I feel much the same way....

All I wanted was Rome 1 with Shogun 2 graphics. There are a few things they added to RTW2 that I thought was good. But for the most part they just ripped too many things out of Rome 1 that immersed me into the game (watch AngryJoe vid...hits the nail for me).

Think I have played maybe 6 to 10 hours...and 5 or 6 of those hours was release day. No excitement at the thought of sitting down for an evening of playing it in the current state.

To be honest...I doubt they will ever get it fixed. Only hope is for the mods --- I really enjoyed the Realism mod....but I have to wonder how much modding the mods will even be allowed to do before CA brings down the hammer.

Exactly. I actually finished Rome with more than a dozen of the playable RTR factions after many go-throughs with vanilla. The TW series went from best modded to DLC based. I will likely buy it, but I would be shocked if this is stable before it's half priced on Steam.

SLI or Cross Fire support would mean Video card Makers make more money but cuts out Sega of that same cash.
