Total War: Rome 2 is the eighth installment in the Total War series and in The Creative Assembly's return to Rome they've amped up everything we've come to love about the series. During our most recent preview of the game, we got to witness the tremendous Siege of Carthage, in which a young Scipio Aemilianus leads a massive army, complete with naval fleet, to the city of Carthage in order to sack and destroy it. Here's a snippet from our preview:
Before we knew it, the ships pulled up and our soldiers disembarked into a bloodbath. Watching the armies fight one another is a sight to behold, as thousands of troops are on screen at once going at it. Carthaginian defenders sat atop walls firing arrows while our troops formed ranks to charge up the beach and assault the city from every angle.
