Game Review on Sep 9th, 2013 - 12 people agree 2 people don't

+ :
Battle AI having a slightly better level than in S2TW
Line of Sight System for battles
Combined air-sea battles

- :
very bad optimization, bad performances (lag, etc.) even with high end computer
1 army = 1 general : problem to reinforce army with new troops
1 army = 1 general : didn't really suppress the "unit spam" problem, only limit it. A bad solution to a real problem.
impossible to exchange region, even during peace negociations
1 turn per year system destroy immersion, it look like if time is "suspended", no seasons in campaign
User interface not always easy to handle, sometime quite confusing
Only provincial capitals having walls, probably to avoid the "siege feast", but now we have "city attack feast", certainly not better.
Army can destroy a fleet... with transport ships

A good game but absolutely not mod friendly. A shame !

One of the best mods for M2TW and certainly the most creative : new cities, new maps (battle and ccampaign map), etc.

One of the best Total War games.

As usual with Total War games, M2TW is better when used with Mod.
And because M2TW is particularly mod friendly, you can find absolutely awesome mods such as TATW (Third Age Total War), Broken Crescent, Rusichi Total War, etc.

Good Strategy game.
As usual with Total War games, Empire: Total War is better when used with mods.

Empire: Total War isn't particularly mod friendly and Vanilla game was plagued with a particularly stupid IA, this is the reason why I can't give it a better rating
