Fair

Very short game

If it took 7 years to make like the credits state - they need to review their game making and business practices! It was very well done graphically - but you'd expect that from an X1 title (or a PS4 title). But it was terribly, terribly short. Maybe they spent all their time on multiplayer - I am not a huge multiplayer person because of my location and bad Internet, so I gave them benefit of the doubt that it was much better - and that is how they got a 5. Voice acting was good, so no trouble there. Action was okay, but exceptionally repetitive, even for a button masher fighting game. Plot? They didn't bother to explain it at any point really. No spoilers - I just thought it left a hundred more questions than it answered. But at least it wasn't as bad an ending as Mass Effect 3. I won't be doing a second playthrough or recommending it unless someone has a few hours to kill.

This is one of those games to spend a few days playing....beat story mode....and move on. Graphics are amazing, story line is good, but the game play can be somewhat repetitive. Overall the game is a must play on the Xbox One. You get to fight some challenging bosses, lead your soldiers, and fight for Rome!
