I've been surprised over the years that they never came up with an American Civil War version of Total War. Not even an expansion to Empire or Napoleon, as that's the general type of combat that would be involved.
For someone relatively new to the series I quite enjoy Attila!
Total War: Warhammer is a fresh view for the series!
Personally I like Empire Total War and Total War II Shogun, then again those are the only ones I owned from the TW series. Heh.
Honestly, most of the negative feedback for attila is the DLC model. They ignore that the base game was already priced low accordingly. Anyway, I still waited for all of them to go on sale before buying them except for blood and charlemagne expansion since I wanted to play them right away. Funny thing, I got all the faction DLC but i still never play any of them.
