Summary: If you are downloading the game from Amazon, be prepared for a LONG download. It took me 12hours to download the game at 1-2mb/s (I have 100mb broadband). If you download from Amazon directly, it will download 11GB and then you will need to download another 25GB from STEAM (It runs under steam).
Summary: This is my first foray into the the Total War series. It's an interesting game, with a good bit of a learning curve (from someone coming over from starcraft II). Once I finally got the hange of it, it plays very well. The turn based play with real time battles is a good twist.

Summary: I received this game as a gift. I was eager to play it until I found out it was tied to the biggest hassle ever devised by gaming companies, Steam. I HAVE the two disks with the game ON THE DISKS. Yet I cannot play the game from the disks.

Pros: This is an amazing game the graphics are really fantastic i have steam which is where i pick it up at on sale.So they pre loaded it for me.Seems to always take longer that's the way it is because of pirates stealing their money.SO DON'T BLAME STEAM
