Om detta spel

Dominera 1700-talet på land och till sjöss. Ta makten över de sju haven, ta kontrollen på land, grunda en ny nation och ta herraväldet över världen. Empire: Total War placerar Total War-serien i 1700-talet och upplysningstiden, en epok som karaktäriseras av politiskt kaos, militära framsteg och radikala teorier, vilket återges med makalös detaljrikedom i Empire: Total War.
Empire: Total War introducerar en mängd revolutionerande nya funktioner, däribland äkta tredimensionella sjöstrider. För första gången i Total War-seriens historia kan du på ett intuitivt sätt styra enskilda fartyg och stora flottor i ett havslandskap med extraordinära vatten- och vädereffekter som spelar en avgörande roll för om du ska gå segrande ut striden eller lida ett nesligt nederlag. När du väl har pepprat fienden med kanonkulor rycker du närmare för att borda och övermanna deras fartyg och sedan kontrollera din besättning när de kämpar man mot man på däcken till dessa flytande havsvidunder.
Utöver detta bidrar Empire: Total War med ytterligare förbättringar av Total War-seriens signatur i form av funktioner som 3D-strider och omgångsbaserad kampanjkarta. Striderna i realtid utgör nya utmaningar tack vare att kanonen och musköten har tillkommit och gör det nödvändigt för spelaren att bemästra nya formationer och knep som följer på den ökande användningen av krut inom krigföringen. Kampanjkartan, som för många utgör hjärtat i Total War-serien, har uppgraderats med en mängd nya och uppdaterade element, däribland nya system för handel, diplomati och spionage med agenter, ett förfinat och effektiviserat användargränssnitt, förbättrade rådgivare och mycket större omfattning, som sträcker sig från Indiens rikedomar till Europas turbulenta situation och för första gången även inbegriper USA:s hittills outnyttjade potential.
  • Ta makten över de sju haven. Med nya 3D-sjöstrider i realtid tar Total Wars oöverträffade stridsspelsaction nu herraväldet över haven och du kan själv styra enskilda fartyg eller hela flottor.
  • Grunda en ny nation. Spelet tar avstamp år 1700 och speglar en epok som såg otaliga strider till havs, revolutioner och grundandet av de Förenta staterna.
  • Med helt ny grafik-motor och teknik har man skapat hisnande havslandskap i realtid, nya avancerade system för landskap och flora samt dynamiska väderfunktioner.

REVIEW

Empire: Total War was released in 2009 and I've been playing it since. It's an 18th-century grand strategy game similar to other games in the Total War series. This title focuses on rifle combat and line infantry; naval battles and trade and colonialization. Empire: Total War is truly a global experience as the game takes place in Europe, India and the Americas. Large battles between thousands of soldiers on land, naval battles with dozens of ships at sea and an enormous grand campaign map are the hallmarks of this game.

PROS

-Great graphics, even for today's standards
-Balanced difficulty (Very Hard is quite a nearly impossible challenge; while Easy and Normal is not too difficult. I would recommend the "Hard" difficulty setting)
-Tactical gameplay is quite fun and engaging, especially at harder difficulties. The AI often notices your blunders and can counter them
-Expansive game map provides hours of conquest and city-micromanagement opportunities
-Diverse choice of countries to play as: For instance, Sweden and Spain provide completely different campaign experiences against different foes. The United Provinces (the Netherlands), for example, has a very strong navy and trade system but has only one province in Europe. The Ottoman Empire is probably the most fun to play as due to hardships in perhaps every category and the uniqueness of their units

CONS

-The AI is too stupid at times and they sometimes can't even respond to your attacks
-The AI loves to troll you by just standing still immediately outside your cannon range. You cannot approach them without taking losses
-Armed fortification battles can often be very buggy or against the player's favor, as the defending enemy will take very little losses unless you have a way to outsmart them
-Almost useless Diplomacy at times. Very few opposing states will ever accept any agreement if you are at war with them, even to make peace on terms beneficial to them

Empire Total War (ETW) is by far one of the greatest turn-based strategy games I've ever played. In my opinion, ETW takes place in one of the most fascinating centuries in history. I love learning about certain eras of history, and the 18th century is one of them. Anyone that is new to the Total War series, ETW is a definite must have game.
This is no game for the faint of heart or some chump looking to pacify his or her ADD for a measly thirty minutes. Empire is all about micromanaging every aspect of your country. For those who don't have the balls to handle everything that's thrown at you, there is hope. You can opt to have the computer manage the economy and construction for you. However, in doing so you will only cheat yourself by reducing the game to a cheap simulated version of Risk. At the very least, I'd recommend a sold hour of gaming time, so plan accordingly.
I'm a pretty hard-core gamer, which means I love playing games on the hardest settings. For better or for worst, my satisfaction can only be quenched by conquering a game while the odds are stacked against me. If you have a top-shelf gaming machine with all the bells and whistles, I recommend maxing out all the graphic options. In doing so, you'll truly appreciate all the fine visual details this game has to offer.
Lets get down to what really matters. Here's the good, the bad, and the ugly:

The Good:
* ​​One of the most immersive strategy games available in the gaming market. In-fact, any stand alone game in the Total War series is worth its weight in gold.

* ​The replay value of this game is off the charts. Each playable country offers slightly different types of challenges. Although the overall objectives are still the same: Manage resources. Build-up your military. Go kick the sh*t out of people. You'll quickly realize the road to success is not identical for each country.

*​ This game is cheap as hell! Seriously, $9.99 + tax! That's nothing less than highway robbery!

*​ Spending your Friday night playing this game with a full rack of your favorite beer and snacks is going to = one hell of a good time. You'll be bewildered at the countless hours that just fly bye.

​The Bad:
* ​The load times can seem very tedious.
* ​You not owning this game is bad. It's more than bad, it's an f'ing tragedy! What are you waiting for?! Go buy this game!

​The Ugly:
* ​There is no ugly, there's only you still reading this instead of playing this epic game!

It's been a while since my first review of this game, so I felt it would be time to give out a more proper one. It's a good game, but not without several problems.

Empire: Total War, set in the 18th century, is a game I reccomend to the player who likes the idea of massive, 18th century-style land and naval battles. The game also has a very large campaign map, including India, Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas. There's also a lot of colonialism involved as well, so if you like all of these things I mentioned, you'll probably like this game.

However, don't expect multiplayer to be a fun experience. It's still active, but there aren't many people playing. There's a good number of players here that will mistakenly or purposefully break the rules set by players hosting their games. Even hosts will break their own rules.

You also need to consider the fact that there are many players on here that have adopted the use of specific units that are simply OP, which therefore ruins the historical atmosphere of this game. Historically, most 18th century infantry were armed with highly innacurate guns, so they gathered in very large formations and fired at each other. They were called line infantry. This type of warfare was in no way meant to prolong the life of an individual soldier at all. The entire point of this type of fighting between infantry units was to use overwhelming force and numbers of troops and firepower to overcome the other side, which meant that line infantry would have to have some serious discipline and toughness. You'd rarely ever take cover, and if you were in the front lines, your slim chances of surviving the battle depended on how fast you could reload your gun and if you could make your shot count before the other side did the same thing you were meant to do.

Now, you'd think line infantry would be the staple unit on this game, and therefore they'd be pretty effective in this game. However, their historical use as the essential staple unit for 18th century armies can easily be rendered useless on this game with just three types of units: Riflemen, skirmishers, and light dragoons.

The sad fact is that on multiplayer, the only three types of effective ground units that have any form of effectiveness on this game are the three units I stated above, aside from artillery. You see, the problem here is that skirmishers and riflemen have guns that can shoot farther than the muskets used by your line infantry, and they are unfairly accurate, meaning that your line infantry will be dropping like flies just trying to close the distance to take on the skirmishers and riflemen. They also reload their weapons incredibly fast. This is in no way historically accurate, because the guns used by lighter infantry forces at the time, no matter how far they shot, were still incredibly accurate and would have taken a long time to reload. Not only that, but we're talking about guns that weren't easy to aim with.

I could understand how lightly armed riflemen and skirmishers could give line infantry some serious trouble in, say, a bunch of forests, but they are so overpowered on this game that they can easily take out line infantry on an open battlefield.

Then there are light dragoons...

Light dragoons are soldiers riding on horseback, equipped with modified muskets that have shorter barrels. Therefore, they'd be less accurate, right? In real life, yes, but in this game? Wrong. Would it be easy reloading these guns on horseback? No, because muskets need to have the projectiles loaded with ram rods, primed, blah blah blah, shoot, repeat. It's difficult enough to do all of this while standing on your own two feet, but on horseback? That's bound to take longer.

Light dragoons can be incredibly dangerous to line infantry due to their superior speed, and because this game has overpowered them, every single soldier in a unit of light dragoons fires his gun, even the ones in the back. None of the troops in the front ranks of the dragoons die, and for some strange reason, a good number of the shots fired hit their mark. Sometimes, This means that you'll be having large numbers of line infantry dying all at once, which can cause a morale shock.

So unless you make rules against the use of light dragoons and skirmishers on the games you host in multiplayer, you'll be seeing these units being used on a constant basis, throwing all of the great historical accuracies of 18th century warfare out the window.

Now that's been explained, I should tell you about a few problems with other aspects of this game:

1) Despite the fact that Empire has a very large campaign map, you will be disappointed to find that almost every single battle map looks the same. Same texture, same everything. Yes, some buildings will look different depending on what part of the world you're in on the campaign, but you will quickly realise how bland the atmosphere of the maps are when you fight battles. Building detail in towns is also severly lacking.

2) The AI is incredibly dumb at times, so dumb that the developers decided to buff up the stats of the AI's units to compensate for their stupidity in the higher difficulty levels.

3) Individual troops in your army lack spatial awareness when they enter buildings or defend/attack fort walls in a siege battle. It's a horrid sight to see at times. Troops just move through each other in a frantic motion. Path finding on walls is also terrible.

4) Some sound effects for this game are awful, especially for muskets. For example, when a unit of line infantry fire a volley at the enemy, you only hear a 'poof' sound. These are primitive gunpowder weapons. They should be noisy and make a loud 'bang' when fired. Instead, the muskets used by your line infantry sound like fake guns used for movies in Hollywood.

5) You won't hear any general's speech before battle like you used to in Rome I and Medieval II.

6) There isn't much voice acting. You won't get to hear any voice acting at all when you initiate diplomacy, and the few bits of voice acting that you do here on this game tends to be subpar.

7) Melee combat between infantry units looks decent, but not amazing. The combat animations are too drawn out and look more rehearsed than realistic. Some of the combat animations are so terrible drawn out that everything looks unrealistic.

8) Because of the way the death animations work on this game, cavalry takes forever to take out a routing unit. Many times, an unnecessarily long combat animation has to be so terrible drawn out that it takes longer than needed for the cavalry to take out the routers. It'd be more convenient if the cavalry just swing their swords at boom, the routing units die faster.

9) Artillery units can be glitchy, even in multiplayer. Sometimes, they won't fire their guns no matter how many times you order them to.

10) On the campaign map, the AI controlling Britain, the United Provinces, and France tend to ignore India for some reason, so almost every single time you play this campaign, the Marathas end up becoming an OP faction.

11) There are no marching tunes with fifes and drums on the battlefield for any of the factions. This feature should have been implemented by the developers. I can understand that some players might find them distracting, but an option could be made to just turn off those marching tunes in the game.

12) Naval battles can sometimes be a little glitchy. Ships will sometimes move unnecessarily slow even when you order them to move faster.

This game can still be enjoyed despite all of these problems I mentioned. However, the it will never be as great as it could have been. There are, however, a few mods for this game that you can use to make this game more enjoyable. Keep in mind that the mods are, unfortunately, not supported for Steam as there is no workshop.
