Empire: Total War


$50.00 Released March, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Realistically captures the strategies and battlefield tactics of the 18th century. Builds on the Total War formula - not just a rehash of the previous game. Retells history in a way seldom seen in games.

The Cons:Lots of repetitive administrative tasks. Not as many fine-tuned options compared to its predecessor. Requires a fairly powerful PC.
