Empire Total War is a big game, and it can be pretty daunting for beginners, especially those not familiar with the franchise or more importantly, the kind of warfare that Empire encompasses. Even for those familiar with previous TW games, Empire is a a whole new ball game as there's a major change in the style of warfare and the use of available units. No mangonels here!
This guide deals solely with the tactics of land battles in Empire Total war and provides good coverage of the units available to fight these battles. It is ideal for the beginner or anyone struggling to come to terms with land battles in the game. It can be difficult to figure out how all the different units fit together and this guide does help you get an idea of what each unit is best suited to and how to do it.
While not a comprehensive game guide, it is not intended to be in my opinion so I took it for what it was and that is purely a beginner's guide to land units in Empire Total War and how to use them. A good foundation for a new player to build on.
