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.

I might give this game a try again, however I was not impressed when I played it, stupid of me not thinking on the avalible mods that could improve the game. To make matters worse I requested a refund so I have to rebuy the game too. :/ Atelast the game is more refined and stable compared to empire total war and I really enjoyed empire despite it flaws. so im gonna recommend this game. Unless im misstaken there is allso a world war one mod for napoleon might be worth trying out.

This game is absolute joy to play if you are experienced in strategy games. If you are not good with turn-based campaigns, strategy-driven battles, then this game is not for you. The AI is bad but that can be remedied with mods such as DarthMod. However, getting to grips with the interface can be tiring and time-consuming and can only be accomplished by the more patient of us.

Cinematic, enjoyable battles
Turn-based campaigns, fun to run in and invade a small country such as Saxony
Looks great on maxed out graphics
DarthMod Ai makes battles even better.
Realistic Gunshot sounds.
Heaven for strategy game lovers.

Vanilla AI is bad
Interface takes time to learn, only works if you are patient enough
Some of the uniforms aren't accurate, (eg. The Russian ones)

Overall, the game is great, but people who aren't experienced with complex interfaces might get frustrated with the amount of patience and practice it takes to win a battle. I would recommend this to any history buff or strategy fan.

A good game for strategy. This game requires a good computer like Empire. The graphics are good if your computer can handle ultra. The gameplay is somewhat dull only having 5 nations to play as and less fractions than before. Although the map of Europe has more provinces than in Empire. The campaigns are good as usual and are backed with historical deadlines. The end turn system has changed for something a little more realistic from 2 weeks instead of 6 months. Overall this game has not changed a lot from the previous in terms of graphics and gameplay in fact I don't think it has really changed at all except research of some new technologies for your nation.

Do you like killing power hungry midgets? Do you like setting ablaze wannabe Captain Jack Sparrows? Do you want to practice your 'tearing down Trump's wall' techniques? Search no more! This is the game for you!

1st move - Declare an allience.
2nd move - Ask for military access.
3rd move - Move in ALL your troops into your allies territory.
4th move - Declare war.
5th move - Attack each of it's cities, one by one.

10/10 would destroy a whole nation in 5 moves again.

Napoleon: Total War is the 6th game of the Total War Franchise and is released at 2010. Napoleon: Total War is a historical turn-based strategy game. The game is really fun to play and with your volume button it sound more realistic. I am a great fan of historical strategy games. I've played a lots of strategy games and I must say; Napoleon: Total War is my favorite (for now). Napoleon was one of the greatest emperor and general in history. The game lets you play a lot of generals and even Napoleon in his campaigns.

At the beginning I've started with the tutorial, but after a several minutes I got bored so I started with the Italy campaign on easy mode. When I played the Italy campaign I started with recruiting soldiers for the France Empire, but you need to wait several turns. In the main time the enemy was approaching my lands. When I sent all my armies to enemy countries to capture them the crisis started for France I lose more money then I get. Because of the bankruptcy I couldn’t recruit more armies or upgrade buildings to make profit. I've started the campaign over and tried it again but with better tactics.

After I finally completed this campaign I started to play multiplayer, but I can say the multiplayer is dead except you’re a high rank. I tried to find online campaign games for the achievement, but there wasn't any except some locked servers. So I started to host one after some minutes someone joined and I started it, but there was one problem: the game crashed and windows said there was some unexpected error and closed it. I were not able to achieve the achievement.

My impressions of the game.

The game is sure fun at single player, but I can't say if you get the same fun with the single player campaigns. I sure liked the sound it gives you the feelings to play more and more.....

Pros and Cons.


- The game is fun
- The game isn't easy to complete, even on easy mode
- The sounds gives you more feelings to complete the whole game (at least for me)
- The game has trading cards
- Amazing graphics
- Choices you make decides your empire
- Variety in historical characters, like generals and soldiers


- Multiplayer sessions are hard to find
- Multiplayer crashes
- Achievements are hard to get

The game is fun and amazing, but I don't recommend the game for achievement hunters or people who wants to play multiplayer. If you just want to play alone then I recommend you the game for sure.

Best $5 I've ever spent.
Unlike any other strategy game I've played, Napoleon Total War blew my mind. After my first few hours of gameplay, this quikly became my favorite game of all time. The campaigns are enjoyable and make sure to include important points of Napoleon's career. The battles are always exciting and immersive, and the attention to detail is wildly impressive.
For someone that would like to give Total War a try, this is your game.

This is defintely one of the good total wars, with so much beauty and glory in each battle. The only thing I wish is that there were more units for diversity in armies

One of the best Total War game, but the campaigns are really short. You will not really find a "Grand Campaign" that lasts forever.

Amazing game if you like the Total War Franchise and strategic games, I always play as England, France or Spain and destroy everything in my path, I always do this when I'm playing the campaign and always get the militia units, I never get the hardcore amazing OP units, Maybe 2 grenediers and one Guard unit to protect my general, I always do the realistic stuff with this game! It's quite fun doing the hardcore stuff though.

This is probably the best Napoleonic Strategic game out there in the whole world, I absalutely love it!

- Very Good Optimisation
- A lot of options / setting to configure
- Realistic Napoleonic Wars Formations
- Real time battles, Such as water loo battle and lots of realistic campaigns that Napoleon, France, Austria & Spain did!

I see no downside to buying this game, It's awesome! Probably the best Total War Game (my opinion)

great game.

If you like intense moments, movie moments, or last stand moments this is the game for you.

You will have really cool moments in this game like if your outnumbered by 700 and your only resort is to set up on a hill and somehow you end up winning those are some of the coolest moments i have had in this game so far.

This game is a change up for me in terms of genre. To have it simply put this game is what I (if I was a hard RTSer) would want to show other people when Im trying to introduce them to the genre of Real Time Strategy. The setting is beautiful. The battles scenes are glorious. Makes we wish I was born around that time just to admire the style more intimately. The game is decently optimized as well . Ive heard things about the total war games and this game hasnt been the negative stuff that I have heard- which is good. Im pretty late to this series but I also recently bought the atilla and rome 2 total wars because I like this one so much. Ive played a little of those as well and I really like those too. Total war overall is just a great series. TWN would be a great tota war title for newcomers to the series to jump on to. I highly recommend this game especially if yourre into history as well.
