Total War: Warhammer II
Let me start this Total War: Warhammer 2 review by stating that this is my favorite game in the entire Total War franchise. I enjoy both the Total War games and Warhammer so the two coming together was something that I was super excited for and it more than met my unrealistic expectations!
Eye of the Vortex
I would go as far as to say that Total War: Warhammer 2 has the most epic campaign of any Total War game. Eye of the Vortex is what the campaign is called and it is absolutely massive! There are many different races such as lizardmen, high elves, dark elves and many more, but each one has its own part of the campaign. They each have their own storylines and cutscenes and it is pretty amazing just how much content this campaign has.
If you have this along with the first Total War Warhammer game, you can get a free extra massive campaign called Mortal Empires that mashes the two campaigns together in a more sandbox kind of way.
Classic Total War
While the Warhammer setting, of course, makes Total War: Warhammer 2 stand out from the other games in the series. The gameplay is very familiar to those who love the Total War series. Each map is rather large and you will be moving your armies around. Making peace, making deals and of course waging war when needed.
It features all that you would expect from a Total War game, but due to the setting everything here just feels more epic. The actual battles have a ton of strategy to them. These are real time battles so you really have to get your tactics right and think about what you are doing, but at the same time you cannot take too long to make your decisions or you will be paying for it dearly!
Style As Well As Substance
As a fan of Warhammer, I feel that they completely nailed the style with this game. It is just so well polished and it all looks great. Some of the larger creatures and monsters, in particular, look phenomenal and are very impressive in their design. I do feel that the more powerful your PC, the more wowed you are going to be by the visuals of this game.
Even though I love the historical aspect of the Total War series. I have to say that the setting of this one makes it ideal for those who have never really fancied the real-world setting of the Total War series in the past. Even though it may look like an action fantasy type game, it has all of the substance and depth of the past Total War games.
As you can tell, I love Total War: Warhammer 2. I really do consider this to be the best of the best when it comes to the Total War series. While I love the campaign, you can also play with people co-op through it or you can play against people as well. So, it really is a strategy game that something for everyone.
