Great game, runs well on MacBook Air 2011

Was a little hesitant to buy this, as not too sure how it would run on my 2011 MacBook Air (4GB RAM, 128 SSD, 1.7 ghz), plus I wasn’t too sure how the battles would match up to RTW. It does run hotter and louder than RTW, and it does occassionally crash, but I think it’s a much better game. The diplomacy is more involved, you have a tech tree which opens up new units, plus the addition of government types and trade works well. The battles (I think) are excellent, very involved, plus you have the naval battles. These take a little getting used to, but works well, although am puzzled as to why some nations (e.g. Maratha) don’t get to build rocket ships and steamships even when they have the tech. As an added bonus, this game seems to work best at the highest resolution setting (strangely). Recommended (at the lower price definitely - not sure I’d pay £28 for it).


Played this game for several hours had no trouble was great! as soon as i reloaded my save thats when trouble statred the arrow keys wouldn’t work to move camera around. When i attacked, moved or tryed to build something some thing other menus stared coming up like government menu etc…….. the worst part was when i did manage to get into a battle the camera stayed zoomed in to the troops i tryed zooming out it zoomed straight back in! so i could see nothing to what my army was doing nor what the enemy army where doing i tried everything to solves these issuses but nothing seemed to work! im so disappointed when i payed almost 30 quid for this!!!

Crashes make it not worth the risk

Totally immersive game, and I enjoy the Total War franchise. But I also experience the death crash halfway through a campaign which stops any further progress (no matter how often you’ve saved, you can’t save it again without crashing). So why bother taking the risk of playng in the first place? Feral support are very responsive but told me they can’t do anything. Surely this needs an upgrade now and some attention from the developers to work out what’s going wrong here for so many potentially loyal clients who are now alienated as a result of this problem. Will they respond and reclaim us?
