Top Critic Average
Total War heads to the Bronze Age for an entertaining and evocative brand of strategy.
Refreshing tactical changes and some of the best maps in the series make this an experiment worth checking out.
A Total War Saga: Troy absolutely nails its Bronze Age setting and comes up with interesting ways to make the period work in its grand strategy framework, but its AI has trouble wrapping its head around it.
If you play it for free this is an excellent introduction to the concept of Total War, but as a paid-for product it's a sometimes awkward mix of fact and fiction, old problems and new.
A meaty, engrossing strategy spin-off with an attention to detail that is both a blessing and a curse.
A Total War Saga: Troy plays it safe in some slightly disappointing ways, but brings enough new to the table that I would appreciate seeing its ideas make their way over to the next mainline Total War game.
Splicing history with Hollywood, Troy is an exciting new take on the Total War formula. Sega's immense strategy series continues to snowball, absorbing and shedding new ideas, somehow keeping momentum despite that core gameplay remaining virtually untouched.
It's not a perfect game, but fighting the Minotaur is too cool to pass up!
A good addition to the Total War roster. It offers some unique new mechanics and a very different playstile for each hero. Balancing issues however damage the overall experience.

A Total War Saga: Troy is a slightly different Total War game. It's commitment to the period, and all that entails is a lot of fun and well worth a look.
