About This Game

The Napoleonic era was a time of political unrest and epic battles played out on an unprecedented scale. It revolutionized the organization and size of European armies through the use of levée en masse (mass conscription.) But the strength of an army finds its roots within every soldier's individual skills.

Napoleon: Total War Imperial Edition on Steam includes the exclusive "Heroes of the Napoleonic Wars" pack. This pack gathers the most superb infantry and cavalrymen who fought during the great Napoleonic battles: 10 exclusive units, which will all make a difference during key engagements, whether using formidable weapons or exceptional tactical skills.

These exclusive elite units become available on the campaign map once you have made a specific technological advancement or own the relevant territory.

The following elite units are included as part of the Napoleon: Total War Imperial Edition on Steam. These elite units will appear in both single and multiplayer game modes.

7th Lancers (France) — These cavalrymen are armed with lances that make them particularly deadly when charging. The lance allows the user to put all his weight, and that of his charging horse, behind one very sharp point.

Brandenburg Uhlans (Prussia) — They are some of the most experienced cavalrymen in Europe and can persuade their steeds into breathtaking acts of speed.

1st Hussars (Austria) — The 1st Hussars are, without exception, superb horsemen, and all have a certain independence of spirit that makes them ideal for chasing down widely scattered men.

15th Hussars (Great Britain) — The 15th Hussars are made up of veteran cavalrymen, deadly in close combat and at the charge. Their speed makes them ideal for chasing down skirmishers and for dealing with artillery units.

1st East Prussian Grenadier Battalion (Prussia) — Only the largest, bravest men can become grenadiers; this size and strength makes them an impressive sight in a charge, and gives them an edge in melee.

6th Regiment d'Infanterie Légère (France) — Historically, the 6th Regiment saw action in over forty battles during the Napoleonic Wars and were awarded seven battle honours for their achievements.

17th Jäger Regiment (Russia) — Able to fight in loose skirmish formation or fire a massed volley when organised in line, the Jägers are an adaptable response to enemy tactics.

1st Regiment Emperor's Own (Austria) — The 1st Regiment “Emperor’s Own” is made up of battle-hardened Czech troops, as deadly with their bayonets as they are excellent marksmen.

18th Regiment d'Infanterie de Ligne "The Brave" (France) — The 18th Regiment are revered by their fellow countrymen, who know them as "The Brave." They are experienced soldiers and that makes them valuable on the battlefield.

Moscow Musketeers (Russia) — Formed into a disciplined line, they can unleash a massed volley into an enemy then, while the enemy is reeling, follow it with a decisive bayonet charge.

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.

Napoleon: Total War is a grand strategy game where you play as Napoleon's allies and enemies. It is not a game where you don't think and just shoot. This total war game is probably a good game for people who are just starting the series. I personally like it a lot, however there are some bugs in defending seige maps and some hill maps. Don't say I have a crappy computer I have a awesome desktop. If you are having some trouble starting to play, watch Pixelated Apollo's youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC45a_j76kNDwJvbc2ufOkJg) and look at some of his videos, they are great. Overall this deserves a 9.8/10 the .2 just because of some bugs.

Very good strategy game. But i think the map is a little bit too small (compared to Medieval 2, Rome). Often you can travel from city to city in one round.

One of the best Total War games. Great performance (I am looking at you Empire Total War), great gameplay, and interesting campaigns. This game is my go-to gunpowder strategy game. Only drawback is small-ish campaign map, at least in comparison with Empire Total War.

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.

The Total War Series is my most beloved gaming title on the PC, and this game was a huge step forward for the series at the time of its release.
Napoleon: Total War touches up on features from Empire:Total War but also adds more of a in depth look into the combat of the Napoleonic Wars Era.
I'd say this game has by far the best depiction of musket and line infantry combat on a large scale.
You can have literally control thousands of troops and depending on how you win or lose battles, the generals commanding those troops will gain traits and retainers. Coming from Shogun 2 however, this feature lacks to me only because they are auto asissigned traits, where as in Shogun 2 and Rome 2 you can choose the type of traits, behavior and entourage you want your generals to have.
This game (like Empire in my opinion) focuses more heavily on the combat as opposed to being focused on building up cities, having a repuation to keep up with or decisions to be made based on your actions.
The AI in Napoleon is up to par but is still un-polished and buggy in some areas,
you also have to remember this is a relativly old game
(4 new total war games have been released since this game)
SINGLE PLAYER & CAMPAIGN-
The campaign is fun being very much different pending on the battle and campaign difficulty you choose and has much replay value, on top of that there is plenty of DLC to download/buy.
In total there are 4 diffrent campaigns to play (Europe, Spain, Italy and Egypt)
You can play these in single player or multiplayer ether being enemies or coop or both throughout
There are a huge variety of units to choose from in this game, if you have the right technology of course. You will notice that alot of the units look the same with similar uniforms and hats, but that is how it was in the time period, again i highly recommend the DLC's because you will acquire over 30 + more units and it will help very much in both single and multiplayer.
MULTIPLAYER-
For me this game is all about the multiplayer. There is a ranking system which is what keeps me playing. Although you will come across lots of slight or big lag, people quitting and people lagging out,
I truly wish they would re master this game. You have to repeat rules in lobby constantly and you can't restrict units to certain rules you want to apply, so new players or trolls choose units not allowed.
You will get frustrated if you care about rank, but if you are playing for fun there is plenty to do :).
Siege, Naval, Land And Historical battles are available for both single and multiplayer.

Pros+
-Stellar graphics for a 2010 title
-Awesome Single Player & Multiplayer
-Unit Variety
-Historical Accuracy & Realism
-Runs on High - Ultra graphics smoothly on low end PC's
-High Replay Value

Cons-
-Multiplayer games crash fairly often and lag, needs to be remastered 0:)
-Some bugs when it comes to garrisoning in houses and firing on certain positions (Hills, Corners etc)
-Outdated AI

Having absolutely routed the French in Campaign mode as the Prussians, I took my troops on a victory march. It was a proud day for the Fatherland. As we crossed the French fortifications, the finest general in all of Prussia leapt over a row of anti-horse spikes, but suddenly game physics took their toll and he plummeted to his death, along with half of his escort. In the words of your military advisors, "it was a black day."


11/10 would play again
