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.

The stripped-back fundamentals of this strategy game are refreshing, but the progression system less so

I enjoyed Total War: Arena more than I thought, but I'm not sure if it has enough carrot at the end of the stick for me to keep playing long term.

Although the series naturally lends itself to scale, it has often been observed that Total War is at its worst when bloat sets in. So perhaps it should have been no surprise that Arena finds victory in focus, accentuating just a handful of tactical elements so that they become the totality of the game. Then again, that is exactly what makes Arena so much fun: surprise.

Arena is not typical Total War game. But is is funny online game with good gameplay and limited strategy elements.

For a free-to-play game, this game certainly exceeds its value.
