Total War: Rome 2 has been out for a few days now and the response has been mixed. Some people love the game, some hate how drastically different it is from the first game, but the common consensus is that the game does have some serious issues that need to be fixed. Luckily an update is expected to arrive this Friday to help with some of the issues in the game and Creative Assembly will be working to update the game on a weekly basis in the immediate future. 

Here is the official response from Creative Assembly about the issues with the game.

At Creative Assembly we are very pleased with the response to ROME II, with hundreds of thousands of players enjoying the game so far; but we do know that, as with all large PC releases, the variety of hardware and general system specifications can cause issues for some people and we are urgently working to help get them the right experience.

As announced last month, we are also planning to tweak the balancing, AI routines and other features now that we’re getting real-time metric feedback from thousands of players.

The result is that the first update to the game will drop this Friday, with the intention to update the game on a weekly basis in the immediate future.

Full patch notes will be available on Friday, but the update will address known instances of crashes due to hardware conflicts alongside several other performance fixes.

In addition, anyone experiencing graphical issues including low resolution textures, should check our support forums at http://www.totalwar.com/rome2support which contain suggestions for settings which will improve visuals in almost all cases.

There are also a variety of other fixes suggested in our support forum, please head there to find out more or report your own problem directly to the CA team who will assist you.
