Pretty great. I believe I have the original disc version though so I don’t think I have it on Steam. Doesn’t matter, I’ll get it anyway, this is one of my favorite games of all-time.
I do wonder what they imply by saying more “playable factions” because making all the factions playable in the original was the easiest mod for any game ever; just cut/paste the faction names to another line in a text file. Maybe there’s more factions, like in later games, instead of all the ‘rebel’ provinces. I wonder how the modding is handled in general. The Rome II/Medieval II engine was easy to mod. If this is just a remaster I wonder if that stays.
