Works Pretty Well, With A Few Hiccups

When I first purchased this game, I couldn’t even get through an entire campaign without it freezing and crashing. Now those major problems seem to have been fixed, as it is entirely possible to play through the entire game. However, there are still some issues. When engaging in diplomacy with another nation, the screen to trade technologies often freezes, so even if you switch between the various tabs for military, industrial, and enlightenment technologies, the screen will stay stuck on the industrial or enlightenment technologies, so you can’t select any others. This makes ending certain conflicts very difficult when you can’t see your available technologies to offer up in trade. Also, the game often gets stuck on certain nations when you end your turn and can take upwards of five to ten minutes for it to move past these nations and get back to your turn. The game no longer seems to crash during these situations, but this getting stuck does add up to an immense amount of time when playing a game that can be 200+ turns. All in all it’s a solid game, it’s gotten much more playable over time, and hopefully it’ll continue to improve.

No American Domination Allowed

This game is liiiiiit. It is super big, fun, and a great step up from the last total war game I played, Rome Total War. I really like the graphics, battles, and overall gameplay. But, I cannot dominate the world with the United States! Everytime I capture enough settlements in the Road to Independence mode, it says congratsand then crashes. I would love to keep playing and I only write this review so that something changes. This is a great game and I highly recommend buying it, and this game would be perfect if this issue is fixed.

Thanks for your purchase of Empire: Total War.

After the completion of this Episode you will see a short movie about the formation of the United States. This indicates the end of the Road to Independence campaign. If the game is crashing at this point, please get in touch directly via

You should now be able to choose to start a campaign game as the United States by reentering the Road to Independence campaign and choosing United States from the right side of the screen.

We hope that this helps. Please let us know if you require any further assistance.
