    Ok, so i've been a total war nut since Rome and have enjoyed every one since. However i was put off buying Empire because of all the dreadful reviews relating to Steam.
    I am no lover of Steam what so ever. I get the anti piracy part but i don't understand why you have to download the game first to install it... it's nuts.

    That said i finally decided to take the plunge as it was going for less than a fiver.

    I'm glad i did.

    Installation was easy enough. It did download and roughly took an hour or so to download, install and update. As i have no internet connection at home i took my laptop to my parents to do the installation. Fearful that it might not play once disconnected from the net i quickly tested to see if offline mode really worked... It did and has done ever since. That was 3 weeks ago.

    So installation was a bit of a faff but was not as bad as expected which was a bonus. So armed with that knowledge and a little patience the installtion shouldn't be too bad for you.

    The game itself then... so far I LOVE IT!! There is a rather annoying bug that randomly reloads the map in campaign view but i think that could be because i'm on Windows 8. That aside i think this is the most indepth TW yet, politics, trade the works and the battles are fantastic. i found myself skipping battles in Rome and Medieval 2 as i found them a bit reptative after a while but not Empire. Tactics IMO seem to play a bigger role and there is an element of using a ruse to trap the AI which i find fun. AND if thats not enough then you could always sink your teeth into the naval battles. I haven't mastered these yet but I love them all the same.

    My only gripe really is that there aren't many small nations to play.

    This product took ages to install and has to have a programe called steam installed first so you can play it. Works well with windows 7. Play as a good range of countries land and sea battles. Choice of campaign or battle, best like most games to watch online gameplay before spending any money.

    Had this given to me for Christmas - bit of a delay in installing via Steam 3-4 hours (due to VERY busy server on Christmas Day) - but that's the only gripe.

    Incredible graphics, game play, and sound - this IS without doubt one of the best if not THE best war game available - watching over 3 thousand individual 18th century troops and storming the battlefield with full sound - stunning !

    Oh and you CAN play it without internet connection once you've registered it with Steam - so ignore the other reviews that say you can't - you'll need to log onto Steam and access your account and select Play Offline.....simple......and enjoy

    If you love turn based strategy games with real times naval and land batlles you will love this. It combines diplomacy,battles and trading with other nations. You have 3 main areas Europe,America and India. you will fight several nations that were around at that time. It is pretty historically acurate. In short you want to buy this game.

    No handbook came with the game. Placed cd into tray, started install then had to set up an account with Steam, yuck, after nearly 2hrs the game downloaded, sheesh, there must be an easier way of installing a game.

    Anyway, set Steam to run off-line and played the game, worked fine, there's tutorials on how to manage armies and navies, two campaigns, and various scenarios of battles to play. Works very well over the couple of weeks I played it, there doesn't seem to be any major problems, does seem to run slow very occasionally but otherwise it runs very well, did crash once, but then what game doesn't crash nowadays!

    Its a very even tempered game in that there's no frantic button pressing to stay in the game, there are sliders to adjust speed of the battles, able to zoom in very close although a speed drop off does happen depending on number of units. Very playable, should keep me going for the next few months.

    It is a very fun game to play on, with a large campaign map to conquer and several major factions to play as, including Great Britain and the Ottoman Empire. The good thing about moving troops and ships around is that you don't have to watch them move to their destination, meaning you can move two troops at a time. The towns are different from previous games and you have to do a lot of researcha and development to build new buildings and get more militry power.

    The battles themselves have a lot of detail, especially the sea battles. The sea looks real and the ships look beautiful. The town detail is impressive and the troops climbing over fences gives it that little bit extra. The only downside is that the camera is a bit jumpy, but you'll probably son get used to it.

    It did take a couple of hours to download because if Steam but overall, I would recommend it for those people who are waiting for Rome Total War II to come out and have some time to fill in.

    Empire Total War (ETW) takes place during the 1700s in the time of muskets, cannons, and ships of the high seas. I have played most of the previous Total War titles and expansions (Medieval II: Total War, Rome: Total War, Medieval: Total War) and have liked them all. While each one has its own positives, ETW might be the most exciting.

    The biggest difference in ETW is the wide scale use of firearms as the primary weapon. We got a taste of this with the Spanish in the Americas campaign in Medieval II TotalWar Expansion. But, ETW is all about getting your lines of infantry formed up and firing at the enemy. I found it very satisfying watching the volleys exchanged back and forth especially in large battles. The other game changer is the cannon. The cannon is now reasonably accurate and especially when fired with canister shot a deadly weapon. Battles will be settled by properly locating and applying your cannons.

    If musket balls and cannon shot isn't enough, ETW offers many other upgrades and changes. One of the most desired upgrades is the addition of player controlled naval battles. You no longer have to auto resolve your naval battles. There may be better naval battle simulations out there, but I found ETW to be excellent. The ship graphics and animations during combat are top notch.
