Although it isn't the best game of the series, I do enjoy playing Total War: Rome II.
-When fighting a land battle tactics are of little value, normally it narrows down to an all-out brawl between your units and the enemy’s.
-AI turn time is always a drag. However, the time the AI takes to make its decisions has been reduced to less than a minute (on my pc at least) which is excellent. This may bother those looking for a quick game.
-There is a slight learning curve to understand new / different features. For example: Happiness is shared throughout an area (typically consisting of four cities) or simply understanding the new buildings and figuring out the units symbols.
