Summary: What happened to buying and installing single-player games? What happened to great game experiences like Panzer General, Star Trek Birth of the Federation, Medieval Total War ONE, Star Control II, et al. ?? Why must I use STEAM, a useless middleman?????
Summary: Bought this game when it first came out. The campaign would constantly freeze, glitch, hard-crash to blackscreen..etc. Found an online "patch" which slightly improved game performance but did not eliminate it. Conclusion: the campaign was rendered unplayable and thus never completed.

Summary: Firstly, Steam makes the installation process a lot harder than it has to be. Second, the actual game is rubbish, just like Empire Total War. The total war series went bad after Medieval II, I regret buying this and Empire total war, but with Steam you can't even sell games as they're locked to your...
Summary: After owning Napoleon TW for a number of years I have finally got around to writing a review of it. The game itself builds on what has already been seen in various Total War games, successfully blending old and new things if you've played Total War before you know what you are getting, if not think...
