seller posted it quickly, however i find the game play to be repetitive and boring, more often than not a unit stack of 5-8 is attacking one of your settlements at any given point, the AI is easily destroyed by cavalry, 2 units of lighter cavalry are able to rout several infantry units. Artillery has suitable firepower, although one could argue it still needs to be improved. The maps are very good and faction choices is moderately varied. A campaign under France is only about maintaining territory and maybe destroying the British navy and eliminating any chance of an invasion. All you need to do under france is fortify border towns and just wait for the riches to come rolling in. Diplomacy seems to be preset on the game with certain factions that just wont trade with you, even with a hefty sum of gold. Overall the worst Total War game to date, considering the time it was released. This is due to the repetitiveness and constant struggle for money.
