A very good game for those who are interested in the genre
20 November 2014
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: When you play a game like total war you expect the unexpected. Total war is after all a historical strategy game. If it did not throw up the occasional tactical play, what would it be — a game a movie or even a story? Fortunately Total war is that and more being well engineered and conveying a sense of history you might not get any where else.
Summary: This is a fun game to play if you jest like multiplayer. This is because the graphics are amazing and so are the sound effects. Also when you fire your canon or fight with cavalry the ground shakes, witch is vary realistic. I gave this four stars because of its CAMPAIGN, the campaign is in four parts 1. when Napoleon goes to Italy. 2.when napoleon goes to Egypt 3.Nopaleons Europe campaign and 4. Waterloo.
Summary: I stayed away from Empire: Total War because of early bug issues and bad reviews. I got the Gold Edition, which fixed a lot of the previous problems and it is a really fun game. There are a lot of fun aspects of this game, the first is you actually get to fight navel battles. Seeing a line of ships on beautifully-designed water is quite impressive, as is the damage graphics after you fire a broadside into an enemy ship.
Summary: This is a distinct improvement on Empire Total War. Really it's Empire with the bugs worked out, which is a shame. It's not really limited in scope, because one can battle all across the European theater as Napoleon and, in the Wars of the Coalition campaign, as the other major European powers. But it somehow seems limited compared to Empire's grand vision of fighting in the Americas and India.
