Napoleon: Total War is the new chapter in the critically acclaimed Total War series and opens up a new narrative layer to the genre-defining franchise. From the early Italian campaign to the battle of Waterloo, Napoleon covers two decades of relentless battles, a backdrop of a world in flames against which the story of an extraordinary military career unfolds.
Whether you play as the legendary general or against him, the outcome of war can never be guaranteed. The course of history relies on your ability to lead your troops through the most intense battles as never seen before in a Total War game.
Napoleon: Total War, the successor to Empire: Total War, offers some new campaign content and finally multiplayer campaigns. But unfortunately, the campaigns are limited to Europe, there are no territories outside. If someone knows Empire: Total War,...
he'll notice it negatively. Also, in some other points the game is 'shorter' compared to Empire. Also, the graphics have been slightly improved compared to Empire, but not much. The AI is now also smarter. I only recommend the purchase of Napoleon: Total War if you don't already own Empire: Total War. With the exception of multiplayer campaigns, I think there is no real reason to change. If you don't own Empire: Total War, it doesn't matter. Here it depends on what you want. Empire is a 'longer' and 'greater' in feeling. Game. Napoleon, on the other hand, offers a better multiplayer and a greater historical accuracy. There are a large number of mods for both games, the installation is the same for both.
Fazit for Napoleon: Total War compared to Empire: Total War:
+ Much better multiplayer
+ Historically correct
+ slightly better graphics
+ smarter AI
- overlapping period shorter
- game generally felt shorter
- campaigns only limited to Europe
