Extremely slow pace of game with non intuitive controls and limited tutorials. I played for an hour or two and have not bothered since.

Much Better After Patching March 20 2012
By C. Monk - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
I stayed away from Empire: Total War because of early bug issues and bad reviews. I got the Gold Edition, which fixed a lot of the previous problems and it is a really fun game.

There are a lot of fun aspects of this game, the first is you actually get to fight navel battles. Seeing a line of ships on beautifully-designed water is quite impressive, as is the damage graphics after you fire a broadside into an enemy ship. The downside of the navel battles is that the learning curve is incredibly steep. Still haven't quite figured this part out yet.

Another aspect is the Independence Game, where you lead forces, started with Jamestown and finishing with the Revolution. Once you win the Revolution, you can go back and play the world campaign as the newly independent U.S. This series is fun, because its one of the few games where you can fight the French and Indian War and playing as the new United States makes it really interesting in a world of much stronger powers.

Then there is the Warpath game, which could be better. I've played it twice; once as the Iroquois and once as the Cherokee...didn't win either campaign. Essentially, you start off pre-firearms and must somehow work your way up to this if you ever want to stand a chance against the superior European/American powers and claim the lands you must have in order to win. I didn't like this because the American Indian tribes were quite well-armed prior to 1783...even 30 years before this, the Iroquois employed firearms quite effectively. What is so annoying about it is that more often than not, the American Indians used the ambush to great effect and that is all but impossible in this game because no matter where you have an Indian force, they still line up on an open field like they're a European Army. It would have been much easier to set up real ambushes in mountain passes or in the forest where European line units would be at a disadvantage.

The pros of this game include:

-Ability to research technology
-True world map for building empires
-fantastic gunpowder battles in which you must use strategy compared to the hack-and-slash medieval or Rome series where you simply bash armies together.
-Great graphics
-difficulty level is much more complex
-distinct cultures affect how you play at a much higher level than previous Total War games.

The cons of this game include:

-sea battles are cool to watch but very difficult to figure out.
-your AI is terrible on its own in just about any battle. No matter how great a general you have leaving an army, they are likely to have their army decimated unless you command them personally. So unless you outman your enemy by a massive margin, you should probably fight every battle on the map yourself.
-The controls have been moderately modified from previous and these can be a bit annoying until you get used to them.
-Steam...not sure why so many games are going to a "cloud" gaming system...it only slows down the load time. On the flip side, it does automatically check for updates and patches. Overall though, I could do without an ever-present-online presence of Steam.

As a big fan of the colonial period and of these types of wars, I love this game. It is really a lot of fun to see two armies march in close order and fire volleys, or have American Indian warriors plow into a line of European infantry from the sides, decimating them.

Classic RTS May 22 2011
By John E - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
I waited a long time before picking up Empire Total War, Ive been a fan since the History Channel presented Rome Total War. This game is very different from past Total War games, but it is already a classic in my book and I would recommend future generations to look into this game.

The best of the series Aug. 20 2011
By A. Ranck - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
The best two games of the series plus add-ons. I don't love the "steam" system, but if you like the Total War series, these are great additions.

Empire Total war, the Wars that changed War March 17 2014
By Alexei - Published on Amazon.com
When you play a game like total war you expect the unexpected. Total war is after all a historical strategy game. If it did not throw up the occasional tactical play, what would it be — a game a movie or even a story? Fortunately Total war is that and more being well engineered and conveying a sense of history you might not get any where else.
There are many game-based interpretations of great historical events but the underlying philosophy that holds true in all is that peace makes poor entertainment compared to war.
Total War implies that peace is merely a prelude to war, even in a generally peaceful country, as Malta is in this game. It rarely, if ever, makes war on anyone except pirates which is why the Hospitaliers favoured it. They are ever at war with aggressors yet ever at peace with honourable continental allies.
Yet, without war there would be no peace, precisely because there are always aggressors to deal with. This is part of what makes this game good. Just playing Total War gives you an idea of the grander picture. A world of mystery, yes, and also of great ideas that is the epitome of Earth. While conveying this grandness of Earth is not easy, after all it is the world of yesteryear, they do, I think, a passable job.
One of the elements that make a game an enjoyable one is choice. It's a powerful factor in holding interest and this game gives you choice in abundance. Amongst the many choices is how to maintain friendly diplomatic relation with your neighbours while building an empire in the colonies and how to go about constructing a great navy. It's not easy work but it sure is interesting.
