Empire: Total War (PC)

 

This strategy sequel is incredibly deep, broad, addictive--and a bit rough around the edges.

Empire: Total War

 

The Good: Total War formula still strong. Colonial era setting engrossing. Naval battles are exciting. The Bad: If you play diligently six hours a day, every day, you might complete your first game in two weeks. Micromanagement is on the menu and it's...

If this game had come out when I was in graduate school, when I would frequently find myself playing Civilization (the first) quite literally until sunrise on occasion, I'd probably be homeless today selling internal organs to support my Total War...

Empire: Total War - Warpath Campaign Expansion

 

Empire: Total War gets its first official expansion in the form of Warpath. Can you change history? Or will you too fall to the white man? (PC)

Creative Assembly have been making waves this past year or so. It seems that ever since the release of their latest flagship title, Empire: Total War, the Surrey-based studio has been courting controversy left right and centre. Some fans were appalled...

How many people in the world can say they helped George Washington fend off the British, and rode throughout the night with Paul Revere screaming, "The British are coming! The British are coming!"? I'll bet my knickerbockers no one alive today can bear...

This game is by far one of the most impressive strategy games on the market.

Everyone's favorite RTS franchise goes colonial

Empire: Total War isn't perfect, and it can be tedious at times. On the whole, it manages to pull off everything you've ever wanted in an RTS, and delivers even more. Top honors.

Agents and trade

Gameplay is very similar to Empire’s more recent predecessors. Some of the mechanics have been tweaked, others changed but the only two major changes are the addition of sea battles and research. That is not to say that the smaller changes don't...

There's no way around it - with an incredibly deep gameplay system, near flawless visuals and an altogether engaging experience - Empire: Total War is nothing short of a masterpiece. Played other Total War games and weren't that impressed? It doesn't...

It may not be all that fair to use these cheats against an unknowing enemy - but after all; all is fair and love and war right?

Leading the charge

Multi-layered strategy ; Absolutely immense in scope ; Intensely detailed in every aspect

Not good for just "a quick go ; Won't be easily mastered ; Unfortunately, not quite done yet

Empire: Total War Review

 

Sleek, profound, and thoroughly addictive, Empire is undeniably Total War's defining chapter, so far...

A perfect blend of turn-based and real-time strategy ; Unit compass system is inspired ; Fantastic presentation

Naval battles fail to deliver ; Looses the drive a little towards the end ; Occasionally iffy performance

Empire: Total War continues the franchise’s legacy, simply a masterpiece in the strategy genre. Significant improvements and enhancements to virtually every aspect of the game make this a must-have for fans of the series, whilst we’d urge anybody...

Empire: Total War

 

Creative Assembly's latest in the Total War series is a streamlined work of strategic genius.

Excellent changes to empire map; "Road to Revolution" campaign; more accessible; fun new factions; naval units add new strategic layer

Naval unit movement and combat is a bit iffy; interface and information screens still a bit confusing
