  • Instant action: Jump straight into major battles such as Waterloo, Trafalgar and Austerlitz in standalone historical scenarios where every detail, from weather to terrain, makes a difference.
  • Battle joined: For the first time ever in a Total War game you can play the whole campaign mode online against friends, or have opponents drop-in for one-off battles in single player mode.
  • Uniform look: Uniform editor lets you customise your own troops for the first time, plus other new features including online voice chat and an improved physics engine.

I've been a fan of all the TW series, but believe the original Medieval to be the best. I did not purchase Empire as the many reported problems put me off. NTW is certainly a beautifully presented game, and the team who developed it can be justly proud of their efforts. However, I believe there may have been some very bad project management decisions made by one or more "suits of nothing" executives that have prevented the game from being the iconic release it could have been.

First the good news. The game looks fabulous; the details on uniforms and terrain, the little puffs of smoke from gunfire, and even the blossoms floating through the air all add to the experience, and not only that, but it runs very nicely on my modest system that still struggles occasionally with MTW II. Units that are decimated by artillery may have injured soldiers that pull themselves up from the ground and limp back into formation. Horses belonging to dismounted cavalry may run amok across the battlefield. Placing and reforming units is improved. Unit supply and attrition is now covered and works superbly. The naval battle system is one of the best I've seen. A lot of these features may have been present in Empire, but I'm extremely impressed coming straight from MTW II.

However, there are many problems, and although none are critical enough to make NTW a "bad" game, some are extremely irritating.

First, is the abysmal game manual that comes with NTW (Imperial Edition). This is a very complicated game, and many features are not covered by the manual. The tool tips in the game although good are not able to make up for the poor instructions, and after over 100 game hours I am still learning through trial and error the depth of what is possible.

I never had a lot of the problems that other gamers reported with Empire. My main gripe was flickering graphics and crackly sound, despite my high spec/more than enough computer.

However, there is an instantly noticeable difference when at first you enter the world of Napoleon. Loading times are greatly improved, the page doesn't stutter when you move across the map, sound and graphics are impeccable, and this is on the highest setting. So the gameplay is much smoother and more enjoyable.

I love the attention to detail they have added on musket fire; it looks much more realistic and a cloud of smoke gradually gathers above a units head after several volleys. Also, units are much more reactive, not delaying so much in moving from one place to another.

My favourite alterations are the battle map which is a more detailed version of the maps from Medieval and Shogun. The HUD covers less of the screen thanks to better organisation. Your position on the battleground seems to have a greater and much more realistic effect on the outcome of a battle (positioning and terrain on Medieval 1 was crucial, but seemed to be less important since Rome).

The positioning of armies on the campaign map is also more important on this game; armies are susceptible to attrition damage if they are stationed in harsh conditions.

The 'quickview' screen which comes up in the heat of battle is very useful, letting you know important battle events and allowing you to be led straight to the location if clicked upon.

I particularly like the increased usefulness of spies; being able to sabotage an army is a great addition that can allow you to prepare better for important battles.

After the stumble across the line with empire, many of us were in divided minds as to how Napoleon would turn out, and whether Sega would learn from the mistakes of Empire: Total War.

Well where to start, probably something that plagued the majority of us in Empire, graphics and Performance. It felt nothing like the previous total war, the load-times are quick (except for the largest battles) and even the biggest battles run smoothly on hear, with only occasional glitches on the screen when trying to fast forward big battles.

Secondly, gameplay, which, like the performance, has been greatly improved. The campaigns are all fun challenging, but are sometimes a bit linear with the same outcome no matter what happens, which limits the replay value of this game. I have only played through 2 of Napoleon's campaigns, but they are both thrilling, introducing new features such as attrition which will limit your attacks of other nations creating a good sense of realism as the effects can devastate your army. There is also a new replenishment feature which lets you slowly gather your units back to full strength at towns and cities, or at Supply posts, which I overlooked at first in favour of industrial buildings, but Supply post can be a life savour when deep in enemy territory as they replenish your troops incredible fast. The improved characters also make the campaign more interesting, as you can now sabotage an enemy armies position, buying you vital time when you need it, as well as being able to establish spy networks in enemy towns from which to get a steady stream of information.
