Default ROME II : Total War

I want this game. It looks great. But I don't really want to spend $60 dollars on it. I'd like pay about $45. I'd also like to try a demo if there is one so I can see how my PC handles the game. Anyone have any ideas? I also see that you have to pay extra for a bunch of things. I see Greek Culture pack for $7.95. Does this mean I can't be the Spartans if I don't pay extra? I kind of want to know what I actually DO get with just the base game. Thanks.

Here are the requirements: http://www.game-debate.com/games/ind...691&game=Total War: Rome II. I've seen it for $10 off on Amazon. Another month or so and you should be able to pick it up for around $40.

I know I meet the requirements and I can probably down the resolution a bit. It SHOULD be alright. I've seen some deals, but I don't buy too many games online so I'm not sure who I can trust, including myself for doing all the steps right. I'll look around.

Yes, you are protected by Amazon. However you should read those Amazon reviews.

I bought this game at release and it was a mess. Lots of problems. Hopefully it is fixed.

Problems like, technical problems?, or problems like, they game could have been done a lot better? I already went ahead and bought it, but I don't have Steam so I am working on that, hopefully will be playing soon.

Yeah, mostly technical from what I recall. Graphics and controls were really sub par. Lots of glitching and screen tearing. I didn't really give the game a chance and only played a hour or two so I can't really comment on the game play. I may boot it back up to see if they fixed all of this.

Well it's downloading now, so I'll let you know if I have issues on my end after playing it for a while.

If youre worried about whether its safe or not you should use steam, very trustworthy downloading site.

I AM using Steam. I purchased via Amazon for $29.99. Pretty darn good, and it was a for a STEAM code. But, I am terrible at this game! Although, I am starting to get a hang of the nuances of it, and I am starting to get somewhat decent in easy mode. As long as the enemy army tries to charge the one bridge I have all my troops perfectly positioned on waiting for them. I'm golden. haha.

Wasn't Rome II a disappointment? I heard that it wasn't nearly as good as the original.
