gameplay not as smooth as Shogun 2, still very epic

Felix Cardoso, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: Totally loved the game, I just can't seem to finish past turn 80-100. No matter what faction. It's extremely frustrating and I have tried mods to fix the issue but nothing I can do.

A Fun Game

Decius "deciusaemilius", Amazon
22 August 2010
  • 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.

A minor Improvement over Empire

  • Conclusion: This game is amazing and really should be played just for it's story mode. But the campaign is really bad. A minor improvement on Empire so play this for battles and Emoire if you want to conquer the WORLD. The world is'nt in this game. Just Europe.

Excellent.

  • Conclusion: Having not played a Total War game since Shogun Total War I really didn't know what to expect. Therefore when I played my first battle I was simply blown away. Zoomed out the scale is epic, craters appear in the ground as cannon fire resounds across the battle field and the ranks of men march steadily across. Zoom in however and the tramp of boots, the marching beat and the nervous mutterings of the men can all be heard.

Napoleon Total War 8/10

alfurqan, Ciao
29 May 2011
  • Excerpt: "Napoleon Total War, a strategy game designed for the brains, it really concentrates your mind on the game. Making you feel like your a General and actually controlling an army. Conquering other nations and armies. I liked playing the battles more than the missions. In missions you take and all the other nations take turns one by one giving an order to your units or making more, I got bored of it after 10 minutes and didn't like it that much. While ...
  • Pros: Real War - like scenes and selection between Battles or Missions .
  • Cons: Requires fast CPU and Graphics Card .

Installing is a problem!

babbage, Play.com

  • Conclusion: As they have decided to use steam for this game installing takes ages, mine took 23.5 hours! They should make it how the old ones were made where you just use the disk which takes 15 min! Steam is rubbish! However, once you finally have it installed it is good, best total war games of them all!

Steam nightmare. Some ATI issues.

Lannes, Play.com
9 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The most fun total war for a long time The AI remains poor taking no account of leaders. But the installation is a nightmare with steam taking hours even with the game on disc. Then I had to mess with the settings in the driver to get it to run at all. (disabled Cat AI) Now it looks fantastic on my high end system. Still driver issues listed in the release notes of the latest driver 10.3 so at least there working on it. More an ATI problem than the games.

  • Conclusion: napoleon was a great game but really there was very little change from empire.Similar weapons,units,technology and nations.the only real difference was a lack of other continents and the fact that france is very aggressive.a fantastic game but if you want something different from empire then go ahead and get shogun 2
