Total War Arena takes the best parts of the Total War saga battles and brings them together in quick strategic matches that are both exciting and fun, but they are weighed down by a slow progression system and the lack of a more varied offer of game modes

Despite some invedent microtransactions, Total War Arena is a huge surprise, where the mix between RTS and MOBA's dynamics works pefectly. Beware: you have to make a close-knit and coordinated group of friends to play with, if you don't want to loose too many matches.
