A lot of talk going on comparing Empire: Total War vs this coming up version, and one of the MAJOR reasons I will be buying this in a few days is because of the multiplayer campaign mode, my favorite part of this game. For those new to the Total War series, it combimes civilization-type campaign strategy, where the battles are actual real-time battles, with you controlling each squad of units on the battle-field. Extremely fun, massive replayability, all-together great long-term game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by markgsc A definite buy for Total War fans.
Napoleon total war is a solid real time/ turn based strategy game. Its main things that set this game apart from the previous game Empire is the bug fixes. Also greatly improved is the AI. These two major fixes make the game more fluid and real. Another point though is that the game seems more a expansion then a new game. The interface is almost identical to empire with a few minor changes. The new additions to the game such as drop in battles and online campaigns which fans have been wanting have finally made it to this game. If you do not have a new computer or a computer with gaming capabilities its probable not going to work well on your computer. Even if you have the minimum requirements its still not going to work well with your computer. Also if you are new to the total war games then it might be a little overwhelming and confusing. If you are a fanatic though of the total war games then this game is the best yet. The games AI as mentioned before is just more challenging then ever and makes the game fun because of that reason. The campaigns of Napoleon feel great and being able to be in the footsteps of one of the greatest military commanders of all time just makes this game what it is. The historical battles are awesome and the fact that these battles are historically true makes it even sweeter. So all in all napoleon total war is a must buy for and total war fan. If your new to total war games then it might take a bit to get used too but you might just become a fan too.

It is the best pc game ever. It is build for multiplayer thoughhte singleplayer is sweet. Has multiple campains and the grand campain is the best of them all because you can play online with friends or with random people. Friends are better. The land battles are the cream of the crop. LOTS of troops fighting with grand detail. One of the best games of the pc world. P.S. a strong computer is required. Alien ware is best
Rated 0 out of 10 Battle AI
I bought everything for empire but the battle AI killed me, I hated seeing the British Army getting in a giant blob and charging without firing a shot, which is known as the "melee bug". I already Pre-Ordered Napoleon and I hope that they fixed these problems, I don't want to loose faith in the series, but if this game is as messy as Empire, then I guess I will go back to Playing Rome and Medieval 2 total war.

This looks awesome. I loved Medieval 2 and Rome (until I had t get a mac) and I would definitely get this if I could run it. Unfortunately, my chances of using bootcamp just to run a game (or crossover, VMWare) wouldn't sit well with a certain person, so I'm stuck just admiring the beauty of this game- but yes, BUY IT!!!

What I cant wait for is the multiplayer and social battling of Napoleon Total War. The of differing tactics has been a massive arguement among my friends but I hope Napolion Total War will settle these disputes.
Rated 10 out of 10 by angrysquirrel worth your money
this game is totally worth your money if you get it with empire total war in the "Empire Total War Gold Edition"

I was a fan of Empire Total War, but you need a powerful computer to run it and hopfully they improved the AI.
