I recently started playing this again after pretty long break, but the game is now unplayable laughable trash ! ... TW have obviously had an influx of people who think they know what they doing ... they don't ... they have killed this game for me personally. This is NOT the game I bought originally, it has been kiddiefied to an unnacceptable level and I would like my original game back now please, not this trash. Until they sack the incompetants I would avoid this game completely.
I had intended buying some newer TW titles but this enbarrassing mess has cost them money now.
I would like Steam to re-instate the game I originally bought, this is NOT it, then I can switch off auto updates.

Best RTS game out there, I don't even play the single player for this game I bought it purely for multiplayer, Seems like the player count has dropped over the years but I still have no problem getting a game, The game might be 6 years old but Its still one of the best total wars game there is. If you don't like other total war games chances are this one is the one for you. IMO all total war games are trash but this one Is actually fun!

I got this game, I have not played it very much, but I do have one story for you. Gather round children.

I though, "Yeah, I've studied the Napoleonic wars, I'll be good at this game!" so I hopped on multiplayer.

At first I thought I would be good.

I lost all of my Cavalry and most of my Infantry within fifteen minutes. The only reason I was still alive was because of my artillery.

Then I realized something: I was going to be Wellington. I was going to recover and route all of his infantry.

With the rest of my Line infantry, I ran, leading them into my artillery on a hill. With a combination of cannister shot and Volleys, they were breaking. Then, his cav charged and killed most of my infantry.

But I have forgotten about three units.
Three units that I had moved into the trees at the start of the round and forgotten about.
My rifles.

I quickly moved my rifles into position. They quickly killed many of his militia, causing a route. His cav tried killing them, buy my riflemen were not fazed. They killed almost all of the cav as they charged. When they met my brave riflemen, we lost one man. His cav was dead by my brave riflemen.

Then, in a last ditch effort, he sent in his Grenadiers. His elite infantry against my rifles. They outnumbered them, and they were stronger.

But my Brave riflemen did not run. They fired on them from afar, then, without giving the grenadiers a chance to recover, the brave riflemen, who were full with energy, charged against the tire, wavering grenadiers.

My brave riflemen killed all of the Grenadiers.

The brave riflemen, the last men on the battlefield, the only men to have not routed or died, had won the battle.

Heroic Victory.

10/10, would forget about riflemen then say ♥♥♥♥ it and charge again.

Napoleon ultimately feels like the more successful younger brother to Empire. It fundamentally shares its DNA, for better and worse, but has learned from its mistakes, and has stayed trim and buff.

It's difficult to take a break from video games when such visceral and tactile sexiness like Napoleon Total War exists. This game is disturbing my profession, my life as an artist. I just can't wait to get back to warring against France as Prussia. The battlefield, with Darthmod added, creates scenes straight out of some of the artwork of the period.

An ingenious game where you share a room with a campaign map attempting to delegate, with precision and balance, the growth of your nation, or kingdom, with battles on a beautifully rendered map. The sound of muskets popping randomly along the long stretched line of troops, the war cry of cavalry swooping in to crush a bewildered enemy, artillery slamming on top of multi-colored troops, the chink of metal as the war ravaged troops fight until lack of morale or blood drowns them in a dusty North African battlefield, or a rain-drenched European battlefield.

I have so few complaints about this erudite piece of entertainment, for the exception of, perhaps, the lack of maps for skirmish mode. There's just not much in variety of maps, but I will not allow the lack to hinder my pleasure of this well done and crafted piece of art.

The vanilla game is excellent but if you have the space and the time add Darthmod to enhance it to near perfection. I just can't recommend this game highly enough. The Total War series deserves an applause, especially Napoleon. :-)

I LOVED Empire total war, not knowing why everyone hated it but playing another Total War game changed my view. Napoleon is basically a upgraded Emprie Total war forward a tiny bit in time with America and India completely removed with a focus on Europe. The large map size is very good for strategy but frustating to stategise a defense.

If you are new to total war, GET THIS ONE. Every soldier on the battlefeild is accounted for, with annimations, ragdoll etc. This series is one of the best TBS game series around.

7/10
