I plan on getting it. Will probably pre-order on steam sometime soon.

My bro loves these games so I'll buy it for his b-day and give it to him, so I'll effectively get to paly it.

I think it was Rome : Total War that I tried and love. Will try this one out for sure

 I'm gonna wait and see. Empire:Total War was a crashfest for me. I just last week gave up on the game. Nothing more frustrating than spending 25 minutes on a battle only to have the game crash at the very end before you have a chance to save. Rome:Total War is a masterpiece, so I'll give Creative Assembly the benefit of the doubt.

Creative Assembly tends to release pretty solid Strategy titles, especially the Total War series and this one looks to be no exception. I just need to somehow magically sprout a new computer that is able to play this.

Umm... dope? I don't really play PC games, but Rome: Total War always interested me. Now they're making a Napoleon game? That is just too awesome. I'd like to play it.

I have not had any troubles with Empire at all. Maybe I'm just lucky. I pre-ordered from a local store, saves me downloading it off steam, plus Ill get it almost at cost.

I might get it, is it true though that it lacks a "real" grand campaign, and instead only more scripted missions?

My  PC can't even run Empires, so Napoleon is gonna have to wait.

It looks like it could be a good game but I'm still not overly interested in it.

@Turambar: I read that Napoleon run's better than Empire though, so maybe you should give it a shot (hope for a demo)

Nope, as i have the other Total War games, starting of Shogun, and still haven't played the whole lot of them.

The fact that it doesn't have Grand Campaigns means "no" for me.
Which sucks, I'd really love to play it (the new weather and terrain stuff looks awesome), but I hate the scripted campaigns.

Oh, make no mistake, I intend on getting both.  College student loans is just eating up my pay checks at the moment, so I don't really have the disposable income to upgrade the PC.

I've got mine on preoder, and thanks to game reward points the special edition is around £12.99 for me.
I've read that the European campaign is basically this game's grand campaign with the bare minium of scripted events

I am not.

@Jeust: The overarching title is Total War, not Empire.  I know I'm being nitpicky, but it still bugs me.

I'll probably get it eventually once I get a new computer.

I do not see myself purchasing this game, it just does not appeal to me at the moment.
