Dear Creative Assembly,
Have you seen the Trailer for Ryse: Son of Rome? THAT is the Roman-era game that R2TW should have been. It should have glorious cinematics, cutscenes, and an AI that reflects the genius of generals of that era. I should be defending Rome against Hannibal who's just marched his elephants over the Alps. Instead, I'm fighting a bunch of ******s who insist that throwing torches at the gate under heavy arrow/javelin fire is the best way to take a city. The only decent part of the game with some semblance of a "storyline" is the Prologue. Games are not just about mechanics etc, it is also a visual spectacle. Look at Guild Wars 2. THAT is a fine looking game with plenty of cutscenes. Idk why you screwed us up with R2TW, but I hope in patch 8 or 9 I'll get the beautiful game I deserve with a reasonably intelligent AI.
