Empire: Total War Review
This strategy sequel is incredibly deep, broad, addictive--and a bit rough around the edges.

I can't seem to get this game to run more than 30 minutes. I can run everything else, so why is this game broken??? I suspect its the D*** steam contraption. I don't know why they make you install it to run the game BUT ... Read Full Review2 of 10 users found the following review helpful
If you like winning against AI opponents. This is the game for you, because it's impossible to lose. Creative Assembly and SEGA have actually managed to do a WORSE job with the AI in their newest title than they did wi... Read Full Review12 of 18 users found the following review helpful

This game had such a big build up but when it arrived we said "is that all" like seeing a mans penis in the winter. The graphics are stunning expecially on the battlefield but the units and gameplay are a let down. Th... Read Full Review1 of 3 users found the following review helpful
First off i'm glad that Gamespot decided to amend their score for this game. But it doesn't matter much to CA, who have already raked in their profits from fanboy reviews on release. Having had 2 of my rather negative re... Read Full Review3 of 6 users found the following review helpful
