Top Critic Average
Though technically not a bad game by any stretch thanks to great art direction, solid gameplay, and several potentially fantastic ideas for the future, A Total War Saga: TROY is still an uneven and disappointingly stagnant entry in the Total War franchise.
Based on the Iliad epic, Troy appeals to both Total War veterans and players who want to enter the series. Players looking for a good strategy game should definitely try this game.

Fewer vampires and more Greeks! It’s Bronze Age Total War.
A Total War Saga: Troy is a title that shows ups and downs. Without a doubt it's a better spin-off than the previous one (Thrones of Britannia), thanks to a breathtaking setting with attention to detail. The Homeric victory is infact much more interesting than the classical one. Troy relies heavily on some mechanics but then takes inexplicable steps backwards.

A Total War Saga: Troy is a solid strategy game with almost all the elements that we have come to expect from the previous Total War games. In this section there is a lot of experimentation with new features, such as the Divine Will, weight classes of military units and managing five different resources instead of just money. While one feature works out better than another, they all offer a refreshing new feature in a series that has always been great in its own right. Adding the new features does mean that it can be a bit overwhelming at times, because there are so many things to micromanage. Once you understand how it works, you can spend hours playing war.

Total War Saga as a mini series of smaller scoped historical settings has allowed for incredibly rich myths and legends to be portrayed in a Total War game. Troy is no different. The Total War formula is able to seamlessly integrate itself into the Homeric epic, and the added mythological nature of the original story makes for a diverse range of Heroes and Kingdoms to choose from, making each campaign feel unique and purposeful.
A good strategy war game that will be specially enjoyed by those who love both history and myth from Troya's war, with greats visuals that makes posible having a more realistic experience.

A Total War Saga: Troy is a good addition to the franchise, but is not recommended for new players. However, fans of the historical setting Total War games shouldn't hesitate to check this one out.
There is no denying that A Total War Saga: Troy is suffering from numerous problems, as the formula that started with Rome 2 and reached its full potential with Warhammer 2 is starting to show its age, and proves that it is time for major changes in the core mechanisms of the series. All that said, Troy is still an entertaining experience if you are a hardcore strategy fan and can keep you engaged for many, many hours.
