Fantasy series Warhammer got to the games of Total War! The event is grandiose and epoch-making, since previously all parts of the real-time strategy affected exclusively historical periods. There were fan fashion on the world of "The Lord of the Rings", but this branch ended. This time the company Creative Assembly approached the creation of a game much more creative than usual, because it took not just to recreate some setting, but also draw a lot of fictional objects.
Total в игре Total War: Warhammer there are 5 races, but each of them is truly unique and original. Each nation received both positive and negative sides. After several hours of play, it seems that the balance was originally perfected well, it will only need to be polished in future patches. The most balanced race is people. Mankind has learned to fight, to explore new technologies, to cast magic. People have a complex hierarchical system of power, the emperor appoints rulers to different regions of the planet.
Four other races: gnomes, orcs, lord-vampires (analogous to necromancers from the "Heroes of the sword and magic"), as well as race Chaos, which is added as an additional. This DLC was originally supposed to be a bonus for pre-ordering the game, but then it was made free during the 1 week from the release date. Visually, the Chaos resembles the Huns from the game Total War: Attila.
The strategic and tactical aspects of the Total War series remained unchanged in the new part. In particular, we have to develop the army on a global map, engage in politics and diplomacy, collect troops, defend our frontiers against aggressor attacks, expand our own possessions through conquests, etc. In this aspect, Warhammer's game keeps the brand!
As for graphics, a huge highly detailed army produces an unforgettable impression, and visual effects have not pumped up. The explosions look just amazing! Music is not remembered, but the sound of the surroundings perfectly recreates the necessary atmosphere. Single mode is one big campaign, consisting in the conquest of a global map. Collective mode is an opportunity to organize network battles with living people. Not only single battles, but also expanded expansion.
Conclusions: experience in combining the series Warhammer and Total War, both franchises went only to the benefit. Of the shortcomings, only small opportunities for diplomacy can be noted. The overall score of the game ranges from 8 to 9 points. It all depends on how interesting to you such a fantasy world.
