    Reviews mean nothing imo because when Shogun 2 arrived, PC Gamer did nothing but lie. But I am hopeful Rome 2 will see a return to form from CA. It better!

    @14 Yeah, but some of those reviews are talking about stupid bugs and AI problems.

    That sounds a little too familiar for my taste.

    FACKING BULLSHIT.

    There needs to be a way to click on those achievements so that we can see the specific people who have them, not just a round number but be able to visit the Steam page associated with them and find out who the fuck played for 5 minutes before phoning in a review.

    @18 Jesus. Bombshell.

    Wanna bet that not a single word will be written about that anywhere?

    @18 & 19

    The version of the game that was sent out to reviewers doesn’t contain achievements and doesn’t even register as them owning the game.

    I’d say it’s more likely you’re seeing CA staff or random industry personnel who’ve managed to get an early copy somehow.

    I wasn’t going to buy this as a day #1 but caved in. Shogun 2 was given such high praise and it was nothing more than utter shit.

    Limited maps, clans, replay value, small campaign map – the game was just a turd but yet it scored so highly – especially from those arse lickers @ PC Gamer who ‘forgot’ to mention no DX11 support, broken multiplayer etc etc.

    Rome 2 isnt reviewing well, so hopefully this could be a positive. Only 30 minutes until I find out if Sega and CA yet again delivered a turd, or not

    A “meh” from Attack of the Fanboy. Sounds about right.
