tutorial crash, whole system hung (so much for multi-core technology)

Summary: Boy this hasn't happened in a while. My computer had some video blip and the whole thing crashed. Just hung then went BSOD. Can't say a tutorial that does the crash and burn fills me with any desire to play the game. I'll try again. I want to be fair.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game. And I tried to like it for about half an hour. After that long with the game, the only thing on my mind was "phew. I'm glad I didn't pay anything near full price for this".
even after tutorial I was like huh? Nothing like the genius of Total War

Summary: Very odd and confusing idea. Not really a strategy game, you go around with your envoy saying be my friend and suddenly youre empire grows? Can't zoom in close enough to see what's going on. Not intuitive in the least, even after tutorial I was like huh? Nothing like the genius of Total War.
Summary: Don't waste your money hoping this game is something its not. The game has poor graphics, gameplay, and sound. $39.99 to take advantage of a great book series. Wish I could have my money back.
Summary: I was looking forward to this game, as the promos for it looked pretty good. I recognized that it was going to be an AoE RTS-type, but I was OK with that because, well, I really like AoE. But this is, amazingly, actually a worse game than AoE, and AoE came out long ago.
Summary: Unfortunately, pretty tragic attempt. It is pretty glitchy, at least the graphics are. Which is weird, because they seem based on 15-year-old technology anyway. It isn't a bad game for 1996, and if it had been released then, might have made some waves. Or perhaps not.
Summary: Well, what can I say. I give it a 2 out of 10, because while it does make some reference to the novels, which I have enjoyed, the gameplay and graphics are so terrible, they make the whole game appear to be little more than a feeble attempt to rip off the growing fan-base of the series with an...
Summary: Some people here must be joking. Cyanides own forums is teeming over with people who are literally pissed off at this game for not delivering what it promised. Basically what it is, is a very shallow world, if we take the HvH mode. No location or city or town got any names assigned to them.
