Rome 2 gets a lot of stick, I personally think its a fantastic game. I have almost all the Total War games except Medieval.
I think its the setting that I enjoy. I never got into any of the except the Rome series. There is just so much going on at that time.
Anyway, new DLC, which would be perfect if it had a Asterix mod
Currently I am part way though a campaign playing as Sparta in the default game. Spartan's don't float very well .......
