Total War: Attila review roundup

Total war attila

Do you like war? Do you like to call people Hun? Then do I have a game for you! Well, actually, Total War: Attila has little to do with that second part, but you still might enjoy playing it while you wait for Total War: Warhammer. Here’s what other sites who give review scores thought of the game.

Polygon: 8

Total War: Attila is challenging, complex and often frustrating but it’s also a satisfying simulation of life in a world of unfolding chaos and constant violence.

Gamespot: 7

Attila is more of the same and a little bit extra, then, not as convincingly realized as the best Total Wars, but strong enough to keep you clicking until the inevitable patches and expansions trickle in.

IGN: 8.1

Attila is an adept refinement of Rome 2. From the desperately paced campaign map down to each individual skirmish on the ash-specked earth, it’s a cleaner, better thought-out experience. There are more impactful decision to make, and better utilities with which to make them. The political systems are still some of the least user-friendly in the grand strategy space, and there are some surprising oversights in how non-player factions are portrayed, but Attila’s overall strengths put it among the best forays in the Total War series.

Attila carries its theme well, and introduces new game mechanics that improve the core of Rome II. It’s as beautiful as Rome, has the same stunning music, animation, and sound effects, with much improved character and army management. The Total War games still need work to reach that perfection they’re aiming for, and the bugs this close to release are worrying, but Attila shows that Creative have been listening.

Destructoid: 6.5

There’s a lot to like in Total War: Attila. It offers a beautiful glimpse into a part of history that doesn’t get often explored, at least in strategy games. Pax Romana ends. The classic era fails and the peoples of the world are tumbled into a dark age. A long-sung series like Total War doesn’t need to reinvent its formula each time it charges fifty dollars; but, setting even a well-made sequel in the crumbling legacy of the once-mighty may not have been a good choice.

Definitely some mixed scores as the game appears iterative rather than innovative. Still, if you’re looking for a new historical war simulation, this could be a good thing to pick up. Or just wait for a sale and grab it then.

    most certainly wait for a sale. nothing grabs me, other than Rome 2 interface, but better. Not hard to be better, in some ways

      Total War Attila is everything what Rome 2 was supposed to be. It is 100 times more complete than Rome 2 and there is a lot more to do in the game.

      They fucked up in Rome 2 and now in Attila, they have actually listed to the people. I really hope it did not damage the franchise and this game is a huge success. I want to see another Medieval Total war with the new graphics.

      Shogun 2 – Fall of the Samurai was for me the best ever TW game

    I still have not managed to finish Shogun 2…due to Steam updates when I really wanted to play the game. I am very careful of buying ANY big game on Steam, especially TW since I last really loved Medieval 2 and Rome TW 1…Shogun felt like a bit of a let down – understandable since the unit variety didn’t really exist. You were Japanese or Japanese…I believe Rome 2 or even Attila could be good…but not worth the risk for my limited bandwidth.

    It is actually funny, I spent more time playing the game with the mods than the default setting game.

    I think I have never finished or “WIN” a TW game without the balanced mods and improved gameplay mods.

    I guess this will be the same story for me.

    Buy the game, play it for a few days, play something else till the modders catch up and then spend hours playing it.

    I did 200+ hours in Rome 2 … ^_^
