Getting on a bit now ikr but I've just upgraded from my deathbed laptop to a PC & was in love with the first one.

Anyone played the 2nd? Good/bad? I see co-op campaign? Also online any good?

Never played the first one but the second one is a lot of fun. I have at least 60 hours in it. I use the mods Radious and G.E.M

Care to explain why? Looks good from demos etc :/.was fkin **** at launch.

skip 6 months, siege AI still broken and normal AI still retarded. haven't played it in about a month, but i doubt it's improved much. it's playable with mods like the radious overhaul though. probs not worth paying much for it

haven't played online but did play co-op a while back and it was unbearably slow and glitchy.

cliffs: biggest disappointment of 2013

compared to medieval total war 2 and shogun total war 2 this is a disaster

If you like the first one download the Roma Surrectum 2 mod. Like playing a new game, what 2 should've been.

The launch was supposedly terrible. I never had issues but others did

Yeah it's missing features that would make it even better that we're in shogun 2

Mods add more depth

I paid $30 for it and I feel it was worth it

Maybe the next steam sale - summer one should be in just two/three months, right? It's disappointing the way it was released - no reason they couldn't have held back until it was in completed form. By summer, hopefully the patches and mods will make it look better.

so this thread made me play the game again

spent an hour downloading mods, found out campaign map was laggy as fk (never experienced this before), spent 2 hours trying to fix it to no avail, uninstalled.

Game is still a fukken mess. Brb torches to burn the gate. Brb AI just sits outside your walls and gets raped by towers. Brb naval combat is ****. Brb campaign map is boring as fuk. Brb AI just spams agents that annoy the fukkin **** out of you. Brb still get random framerate drops for no fukking reason. Brb 12 patches later

Game isn't fun at all. Just download Roma Surrectum 2 mod for Rome 1 and have a blast.
