= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars
I recently upgraded my laptop to a Dell XPS M1330 which has more than enough capacity to play this game.
Unfortunately I did not see the other reviews highlighting the appalling problem with bugs.
Played on Vista this game will crash after about four to five hours without any means of getting back to where you left off.
It promises so much but it really is the most infuriating game I have ever played as, in campaign mode, it wipes the slate clean after hours of careful empire building!
I would recommend only buying it if you want to play single battles (the historical battles seem to work okay - probably because they only take half an hour!).
Given this game was released four years ago I cannot fathom out why the idiots at Creative Assembly have not cured the bugs by now. Unless as others suggest they simply wanted to sell duff games to make money (now why didn't I think of that???).
