Default Empire: Total War

So, who's got it and what do they think?

I've managed to get in about an hours play time so far and i'm loving it! The map is hoooooge and the sea battles are extremely detailed and really rather tricky!

Yea been playing this on and off as the British. Just trying to get America to join me but the native Americans are hard to beat they just have to many soliders.
I am enjoying it but I find the land battles arnt as fun as in the old TW games.

I have yet to play it but I'm wondering is the camera system similar to the one from medieval 2? I never really got into that game because of that As I hate it.... IF it's the same with this one I won't bother......

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

The camera is pretty much the same, yeah.

@ Talos; i've started with the British and just been attacked by the native american indians. They are savages! All you need is a lot of line infantry, a couple of howitzers and a couple of cavalry.
They do seem to breed like rabbits tho, as soon as you take out a full stack, another one appears!

I got medieval II and my computer choked on it, so I've got to get a new graphics card before I get any of the new-gen PC stuff, I'm really looking forward to Dawn of War II and Starcraft II in particular.

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

Like I said before, I have it now *cheers*

Played a bit and a few random vs battles online, but I can't really play it due to revision. However the few games I have played, I've loved it. It also helps to watch, Zulu, Last Samurai, The Patriot before playing it... then you sit and scream "ATTACH BAYONETS!" and "FIRRRE!" in fancy accents... ahhhhhh im lame.

Still after exams I'll be blitzing through the grand campaign!
Go Prussia!!
