Haven't played a Total War game since Shogun. Man, it's come a long way. I feel like an uncle who hasn't seen his nephew in years! 'OH MY TOTAL WAR, HOW YOU'VE GROWN!'

Hopefully the UK wasn't as broken as it was in previous Total War Games - I remember playing as England in Medieval 2 and being able to dominate very, very easily!

Yes! Double Yes!
Wait for it...
 
TRIPLE YES!

I still wish I knew what happened with the Quick Look you guys had for this game.  Legal issues or what?

These games are too much for me.

Oh please. Cmon guys. This should be an expansion for Empires Total War, not a full 50 dollar game!

The multiplayer part of the campaign sounds insane. I love the concept but as a person who generally sucks at the RTS part of Total War games, I don't think I'd be able to ever complete a campaign if I used the multiplayer.
 
Then again that's probably the quickest way to learn.

@DannyJ: That's why it's not.  It's only $40.  There's more content than an expansion, but less than a full game, so $40 seems fair.

Cool might get this, haven't played a total war for awhile and 40 sounds alright

Empire is great, but I what i really want from Total War? Medieval 3.

Total War is one game that I really wish I was good at.

Posted by deaux

Given that it's Empire with a new campaign, I'll probably wait to get it on a Steam sale for $20.

Longbowmen, If it's in the game it a legit strat.

I wonder if they've fixed the sizes of engagements.  I could handle the unit cap on the battlefield in Med 2 with only minor difficulty due to the time period, but when you're fighting in the 18th century with a maximum of 4,000 men on the field (between both sides), shit is just not acceptable.

Looks fun and should be better than Empire, but I still like Rome: TW the most.

I have to agree with this. My initial thought was that this looks and plays exactly like Empire: Total War. The additions pointed out in this trailer illustrates that without fault. I'm not sure what to think with regards to the AI improvements. From what I've heard, coming from beta testers, the AI is still very stupid. The AI in Empire was the worst. Sometimes you could deploy your units, set up your cannons and just have them stay put, leave the computer while speeding up the game, and you had your victory.

Haven't played Empire yet, but I've been playing Rome.
 
This looks awesome.
 
And the weird thing is, I was never interested in Total War games until I randomly got Rome.

Posted by Kohe321

Neat!

Posted by boonhi

I've been wanting multiplayer campaigns since Rome came out, but i wish they'd have it during a longer 'grand' campaign mode like the 100 years in Empire. I'll still check it out though.

This game scares me!

Posted by driffter

What I need is a new TWarrior game. Spartan was a perfect  game but how about a new one set in Egypt or like in Japan or somthing like that. I love War games but a new Warrior game..... pleas

I will probably get pretty heavily into this. I love the idea of scaling it down.

Agreed.  Overall I'm kind of disinterested in this game, for this and for other reasons.

This reminds me that I got Rome Total War on steam for 5$ a while ago and I haven't played it yet.

Posted by VonSoot

What a great game, wish they'd go back in time though; lining up people shooting muskets just isn't as exciting as formations and charges and sword/spears etc.

 In medieval total war I conquered the entire map once
 who knew the Scottish would beat the Mongolians so easily?
