voted hooooooooooot !!!

good find, sadly i got it already

I've still not got around to playing Empire:Total War ... but good price for this version

this is begining to grow old now... its becoming like FIFA... annual revisions of the same thing

I got Empire and its was still good... but EXTREMELY buggy.

Anyone bought this that can confirm if its worth it?

It's worth it. Would hardly say it's an "annual revision", it was initially intended to be an expansion pack, but they then released it as a stand-alone game instead. Really enjoyed the Italian campaign, not so much the Egyptian campaign and I'm just getting in to the Grand Campaign now. So far there's a bit more politics involved and subjugating other Kingdoms as your Protectorate actually works now and is useful.

Personally I love Empire and Napoleon. I hated the campaign map in Rome and Medieval II, it seemed so barren and actually quite inferior to the one in Shogun and Medieval. With the addition of towns etc. it makes sense now.

Really good price, i would like to buy it but have paid loads this month and still have not managed to get a good session on empire, just bought MW2 and cod5 just need a pc to match now :-D

not got it yet, i struggled to get into empire, gonna try again once the semester is finished, i want them to go back to the good old days of swords etc, none of this guns lark

Rome total war is quite good for that, i've gt the gold edition and then added the patches onto it comes out very good, especially when you finally rule the enitre world, (i actually have that save'd somewhere).:whistling::-D

Can anyone help me?
Am I likely to be able to play it on this?

thanks.

Because of the 'Shared graphics Intel GMAX4500M' on your laptop Fowler909 - It probably won't run at an acceptable level unfortunatley. Saying that - I have the most basic of ATIdedicated graphics cards on my Dell laptop (basic, but still new last year) and it runs Medieval Total War 2 in high detail.

If I didnt already have the game Id have got this! Great price - paid this for standard ed

Hey guys, I've never actually played any of the Total War games. I once tried a demo and although the graphics were quite impressive, i found it to be quite slow and less involving than Age of Empires. Can someone that one both games comment on which one they prefer and why?

Also, do you know if there is ever going to be an AOE 4? There have been rumours for years, but still nothing! Come on Microsoft!!!!

As the games got better looking, the worse the gameplay became. I reckon the best of the lot is Rome, but if you prefer shinier graphics, Medieval II is still quite playable. Shogun and the first Medieval are nice but a bit dated. Empire was a bugfest and their total lack of respect for their loyal fanbase in releasing a game that was below beta-testing standards put me off the Total War series so much I'm not quite sure if I'll ever buy another game from them again, including Napoleon, even in a good deal such as this one.

It might run but I can't imagine it running well considering you're using shared graphics...:oops:

I still play Rome with the Realism Mod installed. Still a great game. GRFX still look good with everything maxed out.

heat by the way

It's the battles in Total War that have always done it for me. They (vaguely) resemble real battles with proper battle tactics. Most other strategy games basically boil down to an arms race for me. He who has the biggest gun wins. I can't remember AoE very well, it's been a long time since I've played it, but from what I remember it followed this model too?

To give you an example of how Total War plays out I'll give you a snippet from my recent Napoleon campaign as France. Basically I found myself in the situation where I was at war with Austria, Prussia, Britain and Russia. Together they could crush me. Britain had my sea routes blockaded, slowing trade. I needed to get rid of them. At the same time I couldn't spare the men from the German frontier because of the constant onslaught of Prussian/Austrian/Russian troops. The short version is, I went all-in on the German frontier and liberated as many small kingdoms as I could, giving them independence under my protection. I managed to carve myself out a strip of protectorate kingdoms stretching from Hannover (just south of Denmark) all the way down to Italy, but I didn't have the troops left to advance further. I was, however, able to ply these small nations with money to keep them producing their own defensive armies, and with those they stopped my enemies' advance over land. I then spent time bolstering my sea defences and building armies for the invasion of Britain.

Basically, I find the difference (on the harder difficulty settings) to be that brute force doesn't always work. You need to use alliances and other tools at your disposal to ensure that you can focus your attacks where they are most important. The same strategy applies to the battle map, you regularly find yourself having to sacrifice men so that you can move other units in to more advantageous positions (like engaging the enemies' lines with your light infantry so that your cavalry can push round to the rear without the whole enemy army turning on them).

Ordered on the same day.
