Empire: Total War - Summary

Command the seas, control the land, forge a new nation, and conquer the globe. Empire: Total War takes the Total War franchise to the eighteenth century Age of Enlightenment -- a time of political upheaval, military advancements, and radical thought, captured in stunning detail in Empire: Total War.

Empire: Total War introduces a host of revolutionary new features, including true 3D naval combat. For the first time in the Total War series, you will be able to intuitively command single ships or vast fleets upon seascapes rich with extraordinary water and weather effects that play a huge role in your eventual glorious success or ignominious defeat. After pummeling your enemy with cannon fire, close in to grapple their ship and prepare to board, taking control of your men as they fight hand-to-hand on the decks of these wooden behemoths.

In addition, Empire: Total War will see further enhancements to the Total War series' signature 3D battles and turn-based campaign map. Real-time battles will pose new challenges with the addition of cannon and musket, challenging players to master new formations and tactics as a result of the increasing role of gunpowder within warfare. And the Campaign Map -- for many, the heart of Total War -- introduces a variety of new and upgraded elements, including new systems for Trade, Diplomacy and Espionage with agents; a refined and streamlined UI; improved Advisors; and a vastly extended scope, taking in the riches of India, the turbulence of Europe and, for the first time, the untapped potential of the United States of America.

* Take command on the high seas. New real-time 3D naval warfare takes Total War's unparalleled battle action to the high seas, with players commanding single ships or vast fleets.

* Become a founding father. Control the fate of the United States of America, from its revolution against the British to overcoming the challenges of a young independent nation.

* Brand new multiplayer component includes player rankings, leagues and ladders, and completely new gameplay modes.

* All new graphics engine and technology features staggering real-time seascapes, new advanced landscape and flora systems, and dynamic weather.

when the game was first released it did have bugs UP THE ASS but with the latest update from STEAM all of them are fixed

my game has not crashed ever since the latest update

awesome game, sad CREATIVE ASSEMBLY is owned by SEGA

SEGA is the sick man of the industry like ATARI, they look like they are about to die and they keep going but they are spent

I couldn't tell you if there's any sales information of the game from retailers. However, I do know for a fact that Valve doesn't release Steam sales numbers so we're not going to know Empire: Total War's sales.

I change my mind the game was full of bugs, I made two campaign using the Prussians and the Marathas but I end up using the same troops, that's really bad when you see the great variety of troops there was in Rome:total war

This game is so awesome! It's just as awesome as rome total war was back in the days, if not better. I've played this for so many hours and yet I have only scratched the surface of it. I'm still on my first campain (prussians FTW!) and i have barely played sea battles yet.

But is anyone else having troubles with the sound? Sometimes when there's lots of firing going on you can't hear some canons and rifles fire. It's also a bit too easy, just like the earlier totalwars. But perhaps when I put on very hard and take a more challenging nation than Prussia it will become harder.

Still it's by far GOTY.

yeah the battle mechanics are totally different. I just like to have enough horseriders and then fully charged into the enemy infantry.
