Empire: Total War

Fragland
29 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Hoe review je een gigant als Empire: Total War? Niet alleen hapt de downloadbare versie een goeie 15gb uit je downloadlimiet, maar ook je pc of laptop zal kreunen onder zoveel content, geweld en grafische pracht. Hoe je het ook draait of keert, wat The Creative Assembly in elkaar heeft gebokst is een meesterwerkje, een toonbeeld van hoe tomeloze ambitie en visie een game oplevert dat op zich alleen al het bestaansrecht van de hardcore game pc rechtvaardigt en onderweg...

Test Empire Total War

Generation NT
5 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Encore une fois, chez Creative Assembly on a fait les choses en grand. Plus vaste que les précédents, plus complet en terme de paramètres mais toujours aussi fin stratégiquement, Empire Total War fait perdurer la légende de cette série de jeux. A vrai dire, plus on déroule la série plus on approche la perfection. Et puis enfin on peut jouer sur les cinq continents dans leur ensemble.
  • Pros: Durée de vie énorme, Graphiquement plus abouti, Combats navals, Nombre de paramètres à prendre en compte, Détails des troupes
  • Cons: Accès moyen à un pur débutant, Chronophage

Empire: Total War

D+PAD
3 November 2009
  • Conclusion: So much of the strategy genre is concentrated. These compressed titles are no bad thing, offering you a refined sense of distilled gameplay. Empire operates on a different scale, and with its enormity comes a roughness. It’s simply too big to have the polish of a six-hour title: its liberating sensation of player control comes at the cost of occasional AI bugs, long loading screens and the occasional bit of fiddly clicking. The trade-off is entirely worth it.

Expert Review

Game Informer
1 November 2009
  • Summary: World domination and the colonial era are two of my favorite flavors in gaming, and they taste best together. Empire: Total War adeptly combines them into one of the better war games around. The streamlining of some of the menial tasks that the Total War series traditionally saddles players with is great.

Historical battles on land and sea done right.

Common Sense Media
22 October 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is the latest in a series of Total War games. The game features two types of gameplay, a turn-based section where diplomacy, resource allocation, and army building rule – and a real time battle mode for both land and sea battles.Some battle violence is shown including seeing dead soldiers surrounded by pools of blood, but most battles occur far away.

Empire: Total War Review

VideoGamer.com
21 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Preconception is probably the greatest enemy a game designer has to defeat. When a game series becomes a 'franchise' and has reached its third or fourth iteration, people's expectations and preconceptions are always going to edge towards the principle of diminishing returns. So when Empire Total War was announced, I was gripped by the ambivalence of both hope and cynicism.

  • Excerpt: If advertising execs, cinema managers, a selection of ex-girlfriends and Russia frequently remind me, bigger is better. Why have a 9″ pizza when instead you can opt for the version with enough cheese to keep the mouse trap industry alive for the next twelve and a half decades? This is a conclusion shared by Creative Assembly who in an effort to strive for the title of ‘biggest (I’m not making up for anything) game ever’ have decided that Europe alone is not enough to...
