Total War: Rome 2 has received a new trailer called ‘The Throwing War’, which explains the game’s projectile weapons with commentary from Brian Blessed.

The game did well at review, as you can see from our score round-up.

    Just a shame that the AI is on par with that of a 2 year old! And, when you ‘form testudo’, they actually run AWAY from the unit they are supposed to be attacking.

    game is a shambles

    Easily the best part of the original Rome was using the scorpions.

    I never, ever, ever got tired of that. You could kinda cheese the game by just aiming at the enemy general and he’d almost always die if you had a couple of scorps firing at him, but it was just so satisfying to see those bolts tear into an enemy formation.

    Still haven’t worked up the courage to launch Rome II. I’m anxious about it :P
