Total War: Warhammer
Top Critic Average
Deep hero progression and a well-executed Chaos invasion round out a campaign that, while it has some flaws in set-up and pacing, fulfilled all of my deepest fantasies of seeing giant, impossible armies clashing amidst the shrieking of griffins and the glow of flaming meteors summoned from the sky. It's just a damn good time.
If you find real history a bit bland compared to glorious nonsense made up by strange British people then Warhammer is the Total War for you.
With the most exciting unit roster yet, Creative Assembly's latest is a godly blend of franchises.
A charismatic, challenging, intricate strategy game that brings the Warhammer world to life.
Warhammer's fantasy elements add colour to Total War's already impressive framework, with a strategy game that is both deep and tactical but also fun and attractive.
If strategy games and massive battles are your thing, this is an excellent and entertaining choice that effectively captures the strength of its source material
The Warhammer universe blends with the tactical gameplay of Total War to create one the best real-time strategy games ever.
Ditching history has set this series free.
As it is, if you like strategy games but you haven't tried out Total War yet, this seems like a pretty good entry point. And if you're a longtime fan and you're feeling burned out, this refreshing take is probably just what you need.
When you walk away from Total War: Warhammer, you'll feel like you've played yet another decent Warhammer game. It has the attention to detail and adherence to lore that fans of the IP look for, but without many of the compelling qualities that are needed to substantiate AAA games in a release-heavy year like 2016.
