Better than chest. Brings the history to life. Almost as if you were a general commanding the army and a bird watching the war. You also feel like Napoleon ruling his empire.

This is one of the best purchases that I have ever made. I've always been really into history, especially the Napoleonic Wars so this game immediatly popped out to me. The ships and navies are in great detail. Same with the individual soldiers and armies. I loved the historical accuracy and the accuraccy of the way war was carried out back then. I would recomend this game to anyone who asked.

The Ottomans have took the Russians by suprise and surround them. The Russians have retreated to their nearby fort, Fort Vodka, to brace for the incoming seige. However, what the Ottomans dont know is that the Russians have came prepared with rockets. The Russians had only 2 hours to prepare for the incoming Ottoman charge. 2 hours have passed and the Ottomans are at the horizon, so confident that they are going to win, that most of them only brought their mother's handed down ♥♥♥♥♥ Swords. The Ottomans begin to charge, and they are coming in the masses. Then the rockets come flying from the fort, exploding mid-air burning and exploding the Ottomans. Ottoman Artillary has burst through the walls, however, the Ottomans are sill far away from the newly created "choke point". The Russians set up their best line Infantry on the choke point and wait. The Ottomans burst through the hole like ♥♥♥♥♥ bursting through $#@!%. The Russian's general decides to into the fray, and does a lot of damage. The Ottomans were wavering, they knew there was no point, even though they knew they can just climb over. After hours of fighting and many rockets fired, the Russians have succesfully driven off the Ottomans from Fort Vodka. Cold, Bloody, and covered in ♥♥♥♥♥ Swords, this was the condition of the Ottoman's long gone men. This was a victorious day for Russia, and maybe on day we will take back the holy city of Constantinople from the Ottoman invaders.
Слава матери России! Смерть османских захватчиков!

It is so hard to navigate your units, cities and everything.

Too hard to get used to, I gave up after 2 hours only.

A game need to be simple to play, and not a labyrint to figure out.

A game needs to be so simple that you dont need to use hours to learn how to avigate your arms, cities, where to move to finish a quest and things, KISS: Keep It Simple Stupid so even a kid could do it!

The older games was so good and simple mangement!

How I conquered and ruled the Entire Europe:

Step 1: Pick France
Step 2: Make peace with Great-Britain.
Step 3: Fully Annex Austria and German States.
Step 4: Attack and conquer Prussia and its Nordic Allies.
Step 5: Backstab Spain.
Step 6: Conquer Russia and the remnants of the Turkish Balkans.
Step 7: Declare war on GB, build an enourmous fleet,and place all your armies in there just to be sure.
Step 8: Lose the naval battle.
Step 9: Watch as the Brits invade motherland France.
Step 10: Finnally enrage as you witness hundreds of hours turned to nothing.


11/10 would make you waste your time again

Alright, let me get this out straight. This game is fantastic! I recommened you buy it, it's so good. The singleplayer is massive and allows you to play battles your way. The multiplayer is there if you had been bored to much by bots, and finnaly skrimish mod that allows you to play battles with your perception as the genral, you can buy soliders and play it on land, sea or siege :D GREAT GAME, 10/10 IGN, WOULD GO KILL PRUSSIANS AGAIN

One of the best Total War games in my opinion and still competes with newer total war and RTS titles today.

+ Huge variety of historical units and regiments, like the Old Guard or the Blackwatch.
+ Awesome Combat
+ Great balance overall between units and unit types, Cavalry can kill light infantry easily, but line infantry kills cavalry and so on.
+ Alot of Nations to pick from, who all bring different units and "focuses" to the table (for example: Russia has very good melee stats)
+ The maps are very big and dont feel too clumbed up like in newer titles.
+ Most Maps provide a variety of strategy you can use
+ Siege Battles feel great and pretty balanced, which is hard to do

- Minor Nations (Like the Dutch or Denmark) dont have alot of unit variety and their units are practically worse than the units of big nations in every department
- Some maps encourage camping due to 2-3 choke points that have to be pushed through
- Artillery has infinite ammo
- Most Players dont allow Artillery which leads to constant camping/skirmishing fights

Overall, I highly recommend you buy the game (especially when it is on discount). It is one of the best Total War titles out there and definitly worth your money.

Fun game. Includes operations, strategy, and tactics. The battles are smaller than they should be historically but are a good size to manage.

Started playing Napoleon Total War again and i would say it has stood the test of time. Yes Total War Warhammer's graphics look far better and there are so many new things, but compared to Rome Total War 2 and it's problems it is a really enjoyable game. There are a few AI issues, but overall i would buy again.

My favourite Total War by far. Although the diplomacy isn't as advanced as the more recent titles, the battles more than make up for it.
