Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia Review
Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia experiments with the series’ formula to great effect, creating a compelling, epic setting that is refreshing to play for series’ newcomers and veterans alike. Though the gameplay does suffer from feeling too easy at many points, the depth of the game mechanics and excellence of the visuals help carry Thrones of Britannia to greatness. It's not a revolutionary or an amazing title, but it has interesting and fresh elements that can attract players and gather new followers of the genre. This new approach to the brand - to make smaller and historically accurate games - makes me extremely happy. It’s also a great place for Creative Assembly to experiment with gameplay, and the changes to recruitment, tech trees and story elements give us a glimpse of what the series might hold in future. From the warring houses and backstabbing and ever-changing map, to the war-hungry Vikings looking to cause one last moment of chaos. If medieval history is your thing, then this is the Total War for you.
