Total War: Warhammer II
Top Critic Average
Total War: Warhammer 2 has taken the original Total War: Warhammer and fixed a lot of the issues that people complained about. It’s breathed fresh life into the series and in my opinion possibly made the best entry into the series to date. It’s beautiful, hard, and fun. The new gameplay mechanics bring Total War into a higher realm of gameplay that makes you ask “Why didn’t they do this before?” This is something that I could get lost in, and sink in hundreds of hours into without realizing it.
While retaining its amazing presentation, Total War: Warhammer II sets itself apart from its predecessor with unique mechanics and even more unique factions. A sequel worth having.

Bigger battles that you can win without having studied to be an actual tactician of war
This game is not for the time poor or impatient, but if long pitched battles and a game you can occasionally set down walk away and come back to without anything lost, this is a title for you.
Much more than a sequel or overpriced DLC to Warhammer I, Total War Warhammer II is one of the most stable and enjoyable Total War entries ever.
I love the beast of a game that Creative Assembly has brought forth, but that doesn't mean that I can forgive its technical faults. I feel bad for loving it because it punishes me so hard for not being good. I don't like the idea of failing a campaign for a move I made 100 turns ago, but it compels me to try again until I master this strategy business
My complaints are fairly minor, especially when compared to the vast amount of fun I had with Warhammer: Total War 2.
Regardless, in the end, Total War: Warhammer II is a fantastic “Upgrade” to its predecessor and a great addition to the Total War series.
All in all though, Total War: Warhammer 2 is a solid continuation on the foundations set by it’s predecessor. I don’t feel it’s enough of a technical improvement to justify the numerical release, as many of the quality of life advances could, and perhaps should have been released as a patch for the original, but it is a solid improvement on the formula none-the-less.
Creative Assembly did something with Total War: Warhammer II that is, in my experience, quite rare in the Warhammer franchise … It followed up an excellent title with an equally (and in many ways, superior) excellent title.
