    "Hands down the best Total War game out. When I have stress or worries or even lack of sleep I turn to this game. I have wasted a collective of 3 weeks (in hours) into this game. Would recommend it over and over again."

    "Total War: Rome II - Emperor Edition is a strategy game on steam that blends turn based play on the campaign map and real time strategy on the battle map. It is my favorite game in my steam library. I have close to 1500 hours playing this game. It is the best game easily of the Total War series. The base game is amazing but when you start tweeking the game with a few of the thousands of available mods you can end up with a game that really fits your play style. This is easily has to be considered on of the best real time tactics games on steam."

    "A huge universe, monster real time battles, and intricate screenplays and backstories. Actually, there are so many backstories that it can get confusing, but most people enjoy diving in it and finding an angle that work for them, that they can truly adopt and identify with. i know I love it. I had played other iterations of the game, and after some time off it, I came back ready for more! What is truly addictive for me are the huge battles, that's what makes it endlessly exciting and energizing. Definitely worth investing a few hours in, at the very least."

    "One of the best strategy games available for playing online, it has 3d aspects which are awesome. I really like that you can interact with the environment, which is sometimes uncommon in strategy based games. The multiplayer is very fun with friends, or even meeting new ones while online. This game can be very challenging, which is a nice change, as I like a challenge."

    "This entry in the Total War series is highly atmospheric and addictive. Its a rather good choice for those looking for a Real Time Tactics game on the Steam platform. The game strikes a good balance between accessibility and complexity, in a genre where game interfaces can be somewhat overwhelming to the newer player. I'd highly recommend it to those with an interest in previous games in the series or with an interest in the game's feudal Japanese setting."

    "Great expansion based off of the original Men of War Franchise. You don't even need the original Men of War to play it. The online community is still pretty active, you can find a few full servers during peak hours. Graphics have held up well over the years. Definitely a recommended game if you're a fan of the genre. I've quite enjoyed the community."

    "I really enjoy the Warhammer series. So, I decided to check out Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II. This game is terrible. First of all, the graphics are mediocre. Second, the game-play is horribly repetitive. Third, the game crashes frequently on my PC, which frustrates the heck out of me. I like the campaigns for the individual races, but I can't recommend the game based on the bugs and the repetitive game-play. Find something else."
