Summary: Great game, well designed but for 2 things: 1) way too short. Only 3 campaigns means very limited game play in single player. 2) when you beat or lose a campaign, the campaign ends. You are not allowed to keep playing it, shortening the game play even further.

Summary: A very good game for those who are interested in the genre. It's very much in tune with previous Total War games. Sure, it has its glitches here and there, but nothing that isn't easily fixed. As other reviewers have noted, you will need a Steam log in to be able to kickstart the game initially. After that? You're free to open it independently. I would HIGHLY advise that anyone interested in these games consider downloading the DarthMod packages for each.

Summary: The major problem with is that it has to be activated with STEAM. It worked fine for a while then I got a new computer and now STEAM refuses to activate the game. I tried calling customer service at STEAM but they never responded. In the end the game was very limited because the scenarios are too tightly controlled. If you want to play as Napoleon you have to go step by step in battle mode and not campaign mode.

Summary: Bought the game for empire total war but the disgusting pill of crap they try to call napoleon total war was also shipped in this box and I had to perform a ritual burning to cleanse my soul after the torture they call napoleon total war. Empire was good though.
Napoleon Total War is probably one of the best games I have ever played

Summary: This game was excellent! I love wars from the late 18th-early 19th centuries, and Napoleon Total War was a great game. At first, I was a little disappointed in how some nations were sadly lacking different types of troops, but that was solved by Darthmod Mod. With Darthmod and this game, it has made it into a beautiful game. I'd recommend it to everyone who loves tactics and Napoleonic Wars.
