    Default Empire: Total War

    Since the other thread was about a million pages before anybody even started playing the game, here is a new thread for the very useful business of talking about the actual game itself.

    I got the game last night in the post, started a campaign, sent one of my fleets to attack a french fleet and got annihilated! The naval combat is epic, wind helps so much... If you make a bad call and turn in to the wind, you can end up being a sitting duck for a few volleys!

    Then I quit and started again, this time I knew (a little more) what I was doing, attacked a pirate fleet, equal number of ships, but all mine were sloops... I ran circles round the pirate fleet, sunk two ships and captured the third without losing a single one! Now that's how you're meant to fucking do it!

    So on the second turn, I attacked the French again and died because I got too over-confident...

    So I'm on my third campaign now after learning the basics from dying so much... I have to say the way towns and ports work in Empire is a lot better than in the other TW games, I love being able to upgrade more than one thing at once... It used to annoy me the way you could either build a port or a farm, never both, despite the fact that you'd rarely use the same people for both, and they're probably situated 100 miles away!

    But, my computer runs it a little slow... I'm getting a new PC at the end of the month (when the paycheque comes in), so I'll have to wait until then to REALLY enjoy it...

    The campaign map is epic though, I love the extra graphical touches! Best TW game ever (and I've not even had a land-battle yet, or even got past 4 turns)!

    They better have the special Zubrovka-ability (+150% morale -50% accuracy) or I'm disappointed.
