  • Empire total war!

    http://www.sega.co.uk/games/?g=238&v=696

    Just a little video that I found interesting, I love the idea that our troops will be fighting more realisticaly on the battlefield than ever before.

    So I was just wondering if anyone else here at TG will be looking forward to the release of E:TW ? I can't wait personaly, if any of you guys have found any other interesting tib-bits please share. I had a great review in my last months PC-Gamer that had screen shots of the tremendous land battles. There were also hints in the magazine that surgested our favorite loverable scoundrel Sean Bean (from the Sharp Series) would be doing a voice over for some of the troops. Anyone hoping it's for the 95th rifles lol?

    I'd love to get an online multiplayer campaign going with some TG'ers if they enable that this time around.

    Hehe, that'd be a nice little Easter Egg is Richard Sharpe (Lt. Col. or otherwise) turned up somewhere in the game.

    Anyway, yes... most definitely interested in this game. Unforunately, no info to share.

        Check out this land battle video, then after-wards the Sea battle video...

        Now this looks like a must have for strategy fans.

              Can't wait for this either, It should be fun to use completely new strategies and tactics.

                            I was a bit disappointed in it only being SP demo. I think MP will be great though. Just like it is in Rome, and Medieval II, hopefully the interface is more friendly this time around though.

                              The interface is as friendly as you want it to be. You can use the usual Total War interface or customize your own (control-wise). I found the TW-style interface a bit slow and clunky though, so I'll have to play with it of course. The graphical UI seemed easier to me than Rome's, simpler really... but the soldier cards could be a bit larger so they're easier to read the stats.

                              The other thing I didnt understand was they didnt show ANY of the empire-building/strategy portions of the game in the demo... i.e. the "Civ4" style parts of the game. The whole point of this Total War version was to blend the 3 elements (building, strat and tactics) perfectly in a MP setting. And they didnt put that in the demo... weird

                              The only thing truly different was the ship combat (which was just frakkin AWESOME). I'd say the ship combat is just as good as PotBS minus the boarding party. You can board in Total War, but it requires nothing but a button push, whereas in PotBS it's a minigame. The TW game engine will have the benefit of being able to handle large fleets though, which should be an awesome sight to behold.

                              I was left wanting with this demo, but at least I got a very small taste.
