Are people looking forward to this game, or are you as wary as I am? I love the Total War series, but the Creative Assembly is one of the worst game companies ever. After all the crap I put up with waiting for Rome: TW to finally work right, I vowed not to buy Medieval 2 until it had been out for awhile and all the kinks worked out. When the Gold version came out, I assumed it would be a “final” version, but lo and behold there were still major bugs that were not addressed for several months, and other bugs that were not addressed at all but left up to the modding community to fix.
But that seems to be the Creative Assembly’s MO. Hype the hell out of a game, promise a lot of features, then only deliver half of what you promised and drag your feet fixing the issues as your developers move on to another project. Once again, I’ve vowed not to buy Empire until I can be sure it actually works as promised.
Do you think this time will be different?
