Total War: Warhammer III Reviews
Even so: I can’t help but marvel at the scope and imagination with which Creative Assembly has brought Warhammer’s fantasy world to life. And maybe I can forgive Immortal Empires for occasionally not working properly because it’s so packed with factions that already bend the rules by design. There are leaders whose army buffs I haven’t even touched, and parts of the world I haven’t yet set foot in. But if my past few campaigns have taught me anything, it’s that there are trees falling everywhere, and they’re making quite a lot of noise.
Total War: Warhammer 3 is a uniquely complex game, mildly overwhelming with the diversity of features and options it offers, each adding their own nuances to gameplay. Any strategy or RPG lover will find something to enjoy in this game, from memorable cast of characters to massive army battles and sieges.
2 steps forward, 1 step back. It's fine, but it'll be perfect in a few months.

The game is on a solid footing just fails to take the turn one step further

Total War: Warhammer III is a fantastic game, with some great factions, brilliant production value, and some much welcome quality of life improvements. However, the game at launch is rather buggy and the main campaign might be too narrative heavy for some.
Total Warhammer III has some flaws in its core gameplay loop that can make long-drawn-out campaigns feel a little tedious, and I find myself starting more new games than I do finishing them. However, what this game does for the Total Warhammer series makes it undeniably the best of the three, and the factions available to play are by far my favorite in the franchise.
Total War: Warhammer 3 is the perfect culmination to a trilogy of generally excellent games. The third installment has both a must-play prologue and story campaign that is fast-paced and takes the gameplay in new directions. Long after the campaign is over, quality of life improvements and the new setting guarantee a long life for single-player skirmishes and multiplayer games. Total War: Warhammer 3 is a winner for both casual and hardcore Warhammer fans or any real-time strategy player looking for a game with depth.
Creative Assembly has done a great job with the final entry in the series. I am really enjoying Total War: Warhammer III, but it may not be for everyone since specific mechanics, like the spawning chaos gates, could become tedious for some players as the campaign progresses. The story could also not resonate with some players. I personally have enjoyed the prologue and campaigns, but I could see it missing the mark depending on how interested someone is in the daemons and the Choas Gods. The game does have some technical problems, and I am a touch disappointed with parts of the enemy AI. But the single-player story, new features, and solid multiplayer offerings are top-notch. If you are a fan of the previous games or this genre, this is a must-play title.
The culmination of the trilogy we were all waiting for. When the patch that unifies the three games is released it will be an absolute 10.

Total War: WARHAMMER III is a finishing touch to the sub-franchise created by Creative Assembly. No more.

It's true that the developers listened to the community and made changes to parts of the game that fans complained about in the second game, and in my opinion, they made those changes well. Given its scope and capabilities, the game is more extensive, has around 100 gigabytes, and is also quite performance intensive. Unfortunately, I didn't avoid optimization issues where the game should have run smoothly but didn't. Also, the size of the game will grow due to the planned DLC. Additionally, players of previous installments can play as factions from those titles. So it's safe to say that if something works, there's no point in tinkering. Still, I think Total War: Warhammer 3 deserves more innovation.

An excellent third entry to finish off the trilogy, Total War: Warhammer III rolls out the big guns to give players the most freedom and flexibility in its most enjoyable outing yet.
Creative Assembly's Total War: Warhammer 3 is a spectacular fantasy battle simulator with a flawed campaign.
Total War: WARHAMMER 3 ends the trilogy that started in 2016 with a main campaign heavily based on narrative, necessary improvements in basic game systems and new factions with unique and interesting mechanics. Unfortunately, a title as great as this one suffers from poor optimization in certain areas of the map and a series of small bugs which, in the end, end up slightly undermining the player's experience. However, CA has a good track record when it comes to post-launch support and bug fixing, so hopefully this title could eventually become the definitive experience in the Warhammer Fantasy universe.

Total War: Warhammer III is a true gift to any fans of Total War series and Warhammer franchise. It's not a revolutionary game, but the one with many unique features and deep interconnected lore. Sadly, optimization is far from the best, and if you look at Rome II it can definitely sour the whole experience.

Total War: Warhammer 3 is an evolved, better and more engaging version of the previous two versions of this trilogy that can give you dozens of hours of challenging and beautiful gameplay.

In Conclusion, Creative Assembly’s Total War: Warhammer III is their Warhammer-franchise swan song and it exits stage left in a massive, yet dignified manner. With eight unique factions, most with their own extraordinarily unique sub-factions (with the exception of the Daemons of Chaos), a huge, multi-tiered campaign map, a complete overhaul of sieges and how they work, dozens of unique and absolutely gorgeous battlemaps, the best music in the franchise, and housing one of the best-told and designed tutorial prologue- with a little more work, some clean-up for balancing, Total War: Warhammer III could very-well unseat the reigning Total War king, Total War: Shogun 2.
Total War: Warhammer 3 has the most diverse and most fun ways to play with friends the series has ever seen, even if network issues can still be a bit troublesome.
Creative Assembly has done it again and created a game with Total War: Warhammer 3 that can inspire newcomers, but will also convince players who have already invested hundreds, if not thousands of hours in the predecessors. With the new factions and the sensible improvements, long-lasting fun is once again guaranteed and sufficient variety is also provided. If this will then also be the basis for an upgraded "Mortal Empires" campaign in which the previous races are added and all three parts merge into one gigantic world map, a strategy experience of unprecedented proportions can be expected here. Until then, Total War: Warhammer 3 can be celebrated as a great single work, which is really very successful.
