Parent reviews for Total War: Warhammer II
Total War and Warhammer just overlap. I’ve played and beat XCOM 2, Total War Shogun 2, Advance Wars, every Fire Emblem ever made, plus a dozen titles I forgot and Warhammer 2 is just better than any of them.
He said the game is HARD. Get ready.
There are some suggestive topics, mostly about the costumes (or not) worn by the sorceress and the Dark Elf cultists. For those interested, there is a set of mods available in the Steam Workshop to alleviate the problem: mods are marked with the letter GR in front of the title.

Fantastic Game – Does Have Fantasy Violence and Few Adult themes
It is a fantasy based turn-based strategy wargame. This includes battle simulation, city management, and RPG elements.
Players can choose from several good races (Humans, Dwarves, High Elves, Wood Elves, Lizardmen and Brittany) to the other end of the evil / evil races spectrum (Chaos, Beastmen, Vampires, Tomb Kings, Skaven), Norsca, Dark Elves and Orcs).
There is death in the game, for example the Vampire Counts can fight skeletons or zombies that have been “brought back from the dead” through necromancy. There are also demons related to the Chaos race in the game. These are people who devote themselves to evil gods and gain grotesque favors and powers from them. Seen on all accounts as bad / bad and understood as powers you should fight to save the world.
The leitmotif of the game is battle / war and the eternal struggle between good and evil. Thanks to this, during part of the battle simulation, battalions or units of units appear in the game and fight and die. Also note that there is a DLC (downloadable content) that can be purchased for a small amount that includes blood kill sequences and artwork. But that’s not standard in the game, and without it, the violence in the fantasy world is very mild.
10-25% of the game is played in this Battlesim mode and the rest of the game takes place on the campaign map. The word “shit” comes up from time to time, but this is the pinnacle of foul language.
Few adult terms such as slavery / death / plunder / plunder / execution that are not shown or that can be participated in. Used only as descriptive text to describe a scene for dramatic purposes.
A very fun game that is challenging but has some adult themes discussed above. Play with your child for the first 20 minutes or watch the gameplay on YouTube to better understand what to expect.
Deeper than the cover suggests
This game is incredibly fun. The WARHAMMER universe is based on the tabletop game Warhammer Fantasy Battles. Creative Assembly, the makers of Total War, combine their game with this universe to create an epic masterpiece. The name of the game and the cover art may suggest that it is “My army is fighting you, SMASH army!” AGH! ” However, the type of game couldn’t be more remote from the truth. In fact, you’ll only spend around 25% of that game on combat. The remaining 75% of the game will be spent on the campaign map. This map is a map of the whole world where your armies are represented by a Lord or a general moving around the map in a turn-based game. On this map you will find cities and settlements that you can capture. But it’s not as simple as you record it, and it’s yours. You must also be responsible for your own economy, as well as the happiness of the civilians living in your cities and managing armies. For example, you must maintain a high public order, otherwise your people will start a revolution against you. You also need to manage diplomatic relations with other factions. These kinds of things can include trade deals, a non-aggression pact, military alliances, and if a faction is of the same race as you, a confederation where you and that faction come together.
One of the amazing things about the Warhammer universe is that all armies are unique and have their own playstyle. For example, the dwarven army is usually quite slow and has a lot of artillery and firearms. The vampire army has almost no range units and is instead made up of zombie skeletons and other undead creatures.
When it comes to violence, I don’t think this game is that bad. In the base game, if you zoom in on a fight and see someone hitting someone with a sword and killing them, there’s no blood, that person just falls to the ground. However, if you buy Blood for Blood of God DLC, the game gets brutal. This DLC pack contains blood, dismemberment, and blood spatter.
All in all, this is an amazingly good game that offers a richer experience than the name might suggest. It’s more of a strategy and patience game and also a game full of violence and war.

Me trying to stop my past self from buying Warhammer 1 knowing it will lead into a deep chasm of DLC and two more games with it’s own DLC that I will all buy:
Can we please make it easier to install Free DLC over Steam without needing to launch the game constantly?
I’m not sure how many people really have this problem, but it was always the little annoying pet he had with a total war lately. Each free DLC that comes out consistently requires a constant startup state (if you are doing a lot of free DLC: quitting / restarting the game) to access them.
Is there any specific reason why free DLCs are not automatically unlocked in the library and we have to manually pick them up on the store page / launch the game to get them? It just seems very intuitive that the user has to go through the hoops to take advantage of the free content.
The little pet is getting nervous again, but something I’ve wondered about for a long time and why it has never changed.
