The game principle of Total War Arena
Just like we’re used to from other Total War titles, battles are the main focus of Total War Arena! In this free strategy game you’ll lead three different units into battle. In the main frame you can decide on one of the four factions, you can choose a leader and unlock new units. If you’re happy with your choices, you just click ‘play’ and the game starts matching you with others! Three units really don’t mean very much, which is why you’ll form a team with nine other players. This means that 30 unit groups for every team will be facing each other—so there’s a whole lot happening on the battlefield! You fight your way through the battles and get experience points for your leader, you provide your troops with new weapons and keep unlocking powerful new units. This play pattern is similar to the one in World of Tanks.
Total War Arena is visually a blast! When you see the beautiful surroundings, the details and the fine-tuning of your units, you’ll feel you can’t get enough of it. You have an overview of the entire battlefield—from the cities of Rome to the dark forest of Germania or the Mediterranean beaches! Seeing the quality we’re used to from Total War titles mirrored in Total War Arena was really fantastic.
The four factions you’ll find in Total Arena are barbarians, Romans, Greeks and in the end even Carthage. These factions have leaders with their own special skills. Moreover, the army consists of unique kinds of troops. The Germans for example, are wild axe warriors, while the Greeks lead their legendary phalanx into battle. From the Romans we’re used to short words and shield formations. All this means that every faction plays completely differently, so Total Arena offers a great deal of diversity.
Similarly to the World of Tanks, you’ll need a fair amount of time in order to unlock all troops. Every troop can be enhanced separately: new armouring, new swords. Once you’ve provided your soldiers with new equipment, you can go ahead and use the troops in the next step. On your way from level one to level ten you will leave countless battles behind you, but this is no problem, considering how much fun Total Arena is. But, of course, no pain no gain!
Fantastic game mechanics:
What we particularly liked about Total War Arena were the great controls and the well-structured interface. All units react immediately, they choose clever paths and don’t stick anywhere. The units’ special skills also seem very credible, and they are smoothly applied. Especially the fact that you act together with 9 other players makes it possible to achieve the whole potential of your units, while also complementing each other. For example, if you choose a formation of archers, you should always stay around friendly close-combat units in order to stay in one piece, so to say!
