Critic Reviews for Total War: Warhammer


8.6 / 10.0
T.J. Hafer

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.

After nearly two decades of historical battles, having the chance to command a magical undead army is a breath of fresh air.
