I think Creative Assembly should definitely acquire the rights to make such a game, while the hype is still in full force. Preferably they gotta release it right before season 8, the final season. After the huge success of Warhammer I don't think balance or anything is a problem anymore.

Game of Thrones has enough factions and differentiations that would make a truly awesome grand campaign. Please do it, for the sake of us fans and yourself!!

The multiplayer is really really good. You can't escape the meta, but it's still good. The campaign is a little predictable. Everytime I play as a specific race it ends up being the same. The Chaos invasion ends up being a very bad idea, because in turn 100 the AI would destroy the Empire faction altogether, resulting in the entire north being in ruin.

Legendary Lord Tyrion defends the Mosquito Swamps from Lord Mazdamundi's Lizardmen Horde in this Let's Play! This battle gives a greater, more in depth look at the High Elf roster and how they play, alongside some new elements of the Lizardmen roster not yet showcased.

It's the least favorite part of the game, but unfortunately it's also a major part of the game. Like all other Total War games, you spend more than half of your time on the campaign map managing your agents and fending off enemy agents. It's tedious as fuck to do that every turn. CA really really needs to do something to address this issue.

Basically every total war game is a reskin except this one. There's a huge diversity of units among factions. The replayability is off the chart. I'm looking forward to Total War: Warhammer 2!

The marriage of Total War and Warhammer is fantastic. Warhammer allows the battles to get to a whole new level for Total War, as well as give the factions more variety than any other Total War game has ever had. Now instead of human factions that are slightly different from each other, you get factions that are not only asethetically different, but also mechanically polarized. Imagine Warcraft 3 in Total War.

The battles themselves are without a doubt my favorite in a Total War. Each race plays so different, and each unit has its own place. There isn’t the problem previous titles have had where there are a ton of the same unit with minor stat changes to give more “unit variety.” Every unit feels like it has its own place. The addition of monsters, flying units, hero units, and magic all really adds a lot to the battles without being overwhelming.

The unlock trees for agents/heroes is also much better than previous entries, and it seems like Creative Assembly went all out and wasn’t afraid to make these units powerful. Being able to unlock a flying mount for your hero really changes the way they interact with the battlefield as well, and you no longer have to keep your general back for most of the battle.

Overall, this is the best Total War I've ever played.

PCGamer - 86

If you find real history a bit bland compared to glorious nonsense made up by strange British people then Warhammer is the Total War for you.
Eurogamer - Recommended

We've known it could be the perfect crossover, if handled correctly, and Creative Assembly has done an exceptional job here. Not only is this the greatest roster of units we've ever seen in a Total War game, I think the series has also picked up some valuable lessons from its tabletop compatriot. This is still a game of rock, paper, scissors and understanding systems, but it's also a game about heroes.

IGN - 8.6

Total War: Warhammer is brimming with exciting ideas, interesting characters, and outright, skull-stompingly delightful units and faction mechanics. The current roster of starting positions in the campaign feels thin, but each army therein is a distinctly different experience.

Gamespot - 9/10

When you're in the middle of a siege and you're coordinating an assault with a friend, Total War: Warhammer approaches perfection. You’ll be tested on all fronts and asked to manage complex battles with broad, nuanced outcomes. Every system and piece feeds into others, and your choices make all the difference. It's a triumph of real-time strategy design, and the best the Total War series has ever been.

Guardian - 4/5

However, this is the most diverse and exciting the series has been in years. On our test machine, it was also more stable and faster than recent iterations. Total War: Warhammer has done the best it can do with the legacy Total War engine, and is also a loving tribute to Warhammer.

GameInformer - 8.75/10

Total War: Warhammer is one of the best Total War games I’ve ever played, and fans of either franchise should find themselves with a winner here. Those looking for more historically rooted fare may find the fantasy over the top, but plenty of solid strategy lurks under the magic and mayhem.

Destructoid - 8/10

Outside of Shogun 2, Total War: Warhammer is my favorite Total game to date. Developing this project must have been a massive undertaking, because it somehow manages to not sacrifice the core tenets of the series while staying true to the ever-expanding source material of the Warhammer universe. After nearly two decades of historical battles, having the chance to command a magical undead army is a breath of fresh air.

GamesRadar - 4.5/5

If you’ve ever had an imaginative thought about the Old World, Total War: Warhammer will fill in the blanks. There are some frustrations that inevitably come from a challenging campaign, but I don’t know what else I could ask of a Warhammer game, except for more of the same.

GameWatcher - 8.5/10

Despite performance quibbles and a repetitive endgame for the campaign, Total War: Warhammer is an exciting strategy game that stands on its own. The four factions offer unique playstyles with compelling strategic options, and the hero units, fantastic creatures, and monstrous enemies make for spectacular battles that are almost as much fun to watch as they are to command.
