    You make some good points however on Prussia they certainly didn't have any role in almost dominating the world in this period. They did have a very modern army however the British have always been renowned for the training, professionalism, and discipline of it's soldiers. There are accounts form American rebels of how scared they were of the British advance as they would continue to advance outnumbered, soldiers would ignore men dying in their ranks and continue to advance with blank faces. Then you have the Highland regiments and Ghoorkas, some of the most renowned fighters in world.

    In terms of world domination, the largest powers were the British Empire, France, Spain, Ottoman Empire, Russia(?). Britain being the largest, controlling both the most land and sea.

    at the start yes, but when it ends, spain had nothing because our king had no kids, so the empire got splitted between different nations... :(

    imo hard to face under programmers POV, spain ruled at the start with tercios army (even after part of them suffered their first loss in 200years at rocroi, they still were a awesome army for a lot of years), but at the end was guerra de guerrillas (when the empire got spplited up, and napoleon tried to conquer spain, well he invaded us, but then got kicked :banana:). as a guy said, im also interested about how they make spain xP.

    IGN just gave this game a 9.5/10 Video review here

    eurogamer gave it a 9.0

    it looks like this is going to be the best total war yet!

    I'm about to place my preorder on steam and get a copy of rome total war free today =)

    EDIT metacritic score is 93 which ties for top 15 highest PC game score of all time

    is anyone having problem with SLI and dual monitor with this game. seems that the mouse icon keeps moving to the right onto the other screen while in game which is really annoying. Anyone know a reason for this?

    the demo is a old build of the game which i read did not support multi core pcs and i do not think it supported SLI, dunno about the multi monitor thing i tend to run one but for 3d work.

    but the gold build is supposedly a much newer build compared to the demo, supposed to support multi core pcs and probably SLI and alot of bug fixes plus CA said they have a patch ready to go for the day the game goes live already.

    Ultimately, all you really need to know is that Empire: Total War is a masterpiece, the greatest, most accomplished and ambitious strategy epic in the history of gaming and one of the most exceptional games of all time. It may not be utterly perfect, with a smattering of glitches and shortfalls spattered throughout, but these minor irritants are like mere mosquitoes on a majestic bull elephant’s back, a beast of exquisite beauty and power that crushes its opponents underfoot with effortless ease.

    Had some issues with it and my hardware isn't enough to play it on medium settings. Also never played Total War series... Not for me.

    in fairness dude your system is low spec. Hence you will be only able to play it on low settings.

    I know, but minimum was like 6600gt or something and 1.5gb of ram? So I expected it to run on low/medium... Well a man can dream can't he?:D Besides, everytime I pressed the apply settings button it threw me back to desktop without any error. Everytime.

    not having a go :) but i know from experience never to trust what it says for specification. I tried that too with the apply settings, it goes straight to the "thanks for playing, why not pre-order today" etc.

    In fairness, Rome total war and most notibily medieval 2 had terrible performance issues when first released.

    The fact that it has been pointed out that the demo is an old build and that they are also releasing the patch upon release, gives us a bit of hope that it will run on lower spec systems.
