The part on Empire total war starts at 16 minutes, 15 seconds (16.15) and runs to around 26 minutes. Looks awesome. Multiplayer campaign and fleet battles! I hope guns at range wont be the only way to win battles on this. Although you could always hide the mass of your troops down a hill like the battle of Waterloo. Napoleon will be born into English territory.. i'll make sure of that ;)

At 18.15, it looks like the battle of TRAFALGAR. If this is the case, then that one misson alone is going to be worth every cent!

I LOVE CREATIVE ASSEMBLY!!! I really don't know many other company's that are willing to say: "Hey listen we know we said we would release the game at blah blah.. but we decided that it would be best to delay by a month.." JoJo, where have you been? Game companies do and say this all the time. They make disappointing you so much nicer with a few carefully chosen words. Whatever their intentions, a delay usually is in your best interests, and in the company's as well. What sets them apart is their ability to limit delay to merely the promised amount, in this case, a few weeks, nothing more.

Empire is gonna kick but in so many ways, unlike DOW2 which was a HUGE let down.

did that woman just tell a 20 year old dude to ask a 15 year old girl out who he met on the internet? you aussie's need to get a grip. plus those presenters SUCK more than the guy from PlayR who sends me to sleep everytime he talks.

They should really scrap this program, it's worthless...they don't deserve their paycheck to be honest. It's really not worth watching. Anyway Empire: Total War will be great can't wait for the demo!

"If we make naval totally realistic, ships can't move if they sail into the wind so we've made some leeway" Realistically ships can sail into the wind. You just need a different set of manoeuvre.

A. That was kind of embarrassing.. With the stupid love advice.. B. I LOVE CREATIVE ASSEMBLY!!! I really don't know many other company's that are willing to say: "Hey listen we know we said we would release the game at blah blah.. but we decided that it would be best to delay by a month.." I say take another three as long as the game is perfect when it is released. Same gos with the multiplayer So keep up the great work CA!!

Sorry but the gamespot guys so called commentary must have been a joke, what are kids learning in history this days. Sigh....

"It's set between the 1700's and the 1800's, so gunpowder's just been invented, they're still learning infantry tactics..."?!?! What a moron.

I can't wait to play "Empire Total War" and the sea battles will be a very cool new thing for the Total War season! But I wish we saw more of the battles and not just clip. Oh and you can Canons and guns in Medieval II Total War, so dont say this is the 1st one to have them! lol Over all Empire Total War looks to best in the season seens we saw Rome Total War! CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :- )

errm, please read some basic history on the time period before yapping about it for 10minutes. Some of the things said in the ETW segment were flat out wrong.

Didn't like the preview much, the screenshots during the interview with the Creative Director were very cool though. Empire is going to be great!
