Out today, we're ready to give you our verdict on Creative Assembly's latest Total War venture. You may of heard about it, it's the one set in the Warhammer universe. A fantasy world full of magic, fantastic creatures, quests to retrieve mythical swords, and perpetual conflict. In other words the perfect fit for the traditionally real-history-only Total War.
In fact, the fantasy setting just about breathes new life into the franchise making this the most important and fun Total War in a while.
It’s safe to say that the battles in Total War: Warhammer are some of the best we’ve ever seen, and one of the best reasons to play the game. Like the climatic scenes from The Lord of the Rings films, watching seas of greenskins, humans, dwarves, and undead creatures going at it, whilst being control of it all is just about a dream come true. And as a long-time Total War player, avoiding the Auto-Resolve button for most encounters, saving replays and then watching past battles is a welcome change. It speaks to how fresh Total War: Warhammer feels, even though it’s kind of the same game we’ve all been playing for a number of years now.
