Total War: Warhammer Review
Developer: Creative Assembly
Throwing off the shackles of history and boldly going where no Roman general has gone before, Total War: Warhammer somehow manages to reinvent the bloody wheel of human conflict.
It's no easy feat, when you consider it's a series with so many dizzying high points.
Napoleon never needed to fight off a giant troll, or a spider with goblins hanging off it.
It's hard to overstate quite how much of an impact these beasts have on combat, because they can achieve truly remarkable things.
It all plays out to make the battles feel more dynamic and interesting than anything that's come before it, perhaps more interesting than most RTS games I've ever played.
Somehow the team at Creative Assembly have managed to build a game that's the real deal both for the Total War faithful and the Warhammer fans coming to the franchise for the first time.
