New Total War: Rome II Gameplay Video Shows AI Rome Smashing Human Macedon to Pieces

Today The Creative Assembly released a new gameplay video of Total War: Rome II showing a nice skirmish between a Roman army controlled by the AI and a Macedonian army controlled by  Communications Manager Al Bickham.

Unfortunately for Bickam, the AI seems to handle things a lot better than it did in Shogun II, and the video shows the Roman army literally steamrolling the poor Macedonians, turning them quite appropriately into fruit salad.

Ok, I believe I need to explain that pun…In Italian “Macedon” and “Fruit Salad” are the same word, “Macedonia.”  Funny, isn’t it?

Check the video out below.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
