I am, it's going to be great to play in a Total War game where shooting is the main weapon rather than the mass melees that were common in all the other total war games. I'm looking forward to the ship battles, but from the pics online, the graphics don't look too great.

I thought the pics look good considering the amount of units involved. And I am looking forward to mostly gun units, I think the tactics are going to be more in depth then mostly melee.

The aquabruisers had guns back in Shogun: Total war, they were rubbish but they were still guns. That is my favourite of the series, and I am looking forward to the new one

Been waiting for this one for a long time. Medieval and Rome are fun, but the genre (anchiet/medieval armies) is becoming played out, just like World War II themed games

Ship-to-ship action should be fun.

the demo is up on steam. I am in the process of downloading it .
Anybody else downloaded it ? If so how did you find it.
I tried to recreate Empire TW on MTW2 by having a custom battle with just cannons and gunpowder troops and it was fun but all my troops ran away as gunpowder and cannons do alot of morale damage in mtw2
