One of the best RTS games that i have ever played, on par with Dawn Of War and other Total War games like Shogun and Rome, Nothing like it out there and hopefully we will see a Empire 2(Just a suggestion ......... Do It, Now).
Infantry and naval combat is done very well and is always enjoyable. The DLC is , however, a little bit useless and it could be given as an unlockable for completing the campaign for that nation, in my opinion this would enhance the replay value a lot.
+Traversing the game world on mighty campaigns is amazing.
+Taxes and Construction are easier in this game which means you take less time faffing about with tax and more time killing your fellow man
+More brutal and gritty than others in the franchise
-Graphics could be better (but this can be forgiven as it came out in 2008)
-A.I is poor in some aspects (e.g Troops sometimes will not follow orders and prefer to be shot in the mouth or have their stomach slashed open by a bayonet)
-Lack of Assasins charging through my ranks and then murdering my general with a tomohawk (Disappointed).
9/10 Great game and the pros definately out weight the cons. Would buy again.If you like Rts games then this is a must buy. Happy to have spent nearly 2 full days playing this game. Another great from the lads over at Creative Assembly .
