Default Empire:Total War

I've been enjoying a similar computer game to a more intricate Risk type game play, Empire: Total War.

I have yet to play online... having fun beating up on the AI atm to think about getting my bum kicked by other real players.

I'll have to test out the waters.

I just had a quick look at what this game is. I'm a big fan of turn-based-strategy games and I dislike 'real-time' games. That's because I like to play games to relax, and 'real-time' games are all about some kind of adrenalin rush doing everything as fast as humanly possible (if not faster!) which I don't find very relaxing at all.

I'm a longtime player of the Civilization series.

Has me hooked - least playing against AI and saving OFTEN in the event the next turn reveals a detrimental FUBAR! Yes, it is a bit of a cheat... though - for the long term time spent - I don't want my arse kicked for the next month playing it occasionally watching myself shrivel up due to a quickly made decision at the beginning... middle of the game.

Ok - so - I cheat! - A bit! haha!

It is a great game. What is nice is, if you don't complete the goal by the prescribed time, it gives you the ability to continue - and that is a nice feature... it simply becomes a long (as long as a player would like) turn based game.
