A Total War Saga: Troy is a strategy game released on 13 August 2020. It was developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA. Based on the Homeric epics, the game’s creators made the bold claim that it would reveal “the truth behind the myth”. What we got was mostly fantasy, with an odd mix of pseudo-Bronze Age stuff and sixth-century-BC Attic black-figure inspired art and UI elements.
Following the disappointment of A Total War Saga: Troy, Josho has been playing a number of other historical strategy games, especially Age of Empires II and Rise of Nations.
The newest entry into the Total War series of strategy games is inspired by the Trojan War. While the game looks beautiful, it’s not something that I have enjoyed playing.
Playing through A Total War Saga: Troy, Josho is dismayed by the idea of thousands of players being exposed to terribly bad interpretations of what Mycenaean warriors looked like.
