WOW, i have to say, I just got the video and OH MY GOODNESS. This game looks amazing. I cannot imagine if they are going to make every battle like the one in the scene.
"One of the biggest challenges we've faced so far with Rome: Total War is getting people to believe what they see when we show them the game," states Tim Ansell, managing director, The Creative Assembly. "The cinematic battles are beyond anything ever before seen in a game. So, when people see a screenshot or the game running, they automatically assume that we're showing a cutscene or that it's going to take a super computer to run the game. Nothing could be further from the truth. Even before final optimizations the engine performance and the system specs are already very competitive."
