Developer Creative Assembly finally sets its sights on our very own Achilles Heel.. an Ancient Greek setting. With A Total War Saga: TROY it presents the Trojan War as presented in Homer's epic The Iliad.
And as our reviewer Edan Burg found out -- in addition to some cool new stuff added, the latest Total War also makes the choice between Brad Pitt and Eric Bana an easy one. Because you can simply play through the campaign again.
Swords, sandals, myth, and legend. Starting out you have a choice of eight factions split across the Greeks and Trojans. As is the Total War way each has its own playstyle, unique units, and heroes. In the two playthroughs for this review the choice was simple... Brad Pitt and then Eric Bana. I mean, Achilles and Hector.
