This was me, yelling at my PC screen at the over of a Total War: Attila battle that, as you may be able khổng lồ tell, hadn"t gone well. At a crucial point in a massive battle, my infantry had lost its nerve sầu & turned tail. My archers were exposed. My cavalry was, regrettably, already spent. I was doomed & pretty ticked off.

Wrap Up: Attila is a satisfying simulation of a world in chaos

Another battle sticks in the mind. I was outnumbered two-to-one. I used terrain to find distance and tire my opponent. My horses whittled away at the enemy, teasing units away from the horde and cutting them down, while my infantry stood firm on a wooded hilltop, archers raining arrows down on enemies.

Sheer numbers demanded that my units fell one by one. A lone squadron of archers was all that was left. I waited for defeat.

Those archers, nurtured over many game turns, fought until the kết thúc. The enemy"s last squadrons, exhausted, dropped arms và retreated. It was miraculous and beautiful. I shouted for joy. "You beauties. You gorgeous, lovely, wonderful little beauties."

Total War: Attila is challenging, complex và often frustrating but it"s also a satisfying simulation of life in a world of unfolding chaos & constant violence.
