    Medieval's Kingdoms expansion pack focused on a few different campaigns in closer detail but didn't lose the strategy element, they just had a greater number of individual 'regions' within the area your campaign was centered.

    Did they do this with the rome games? I have them on steam but not played them more than a few minutes, for sake of comparison.

    Don't think so... I can only vaguely remember the Mongol one and I think that's the same map as vanilla Rome.

    Rome had Barbarian Invasion - which was the same map with a different set factions (Huns not Mongols!) and the Alexander campaign which was quite linear, so possibly similar to these new Napoleon campaigns. I'd imagine it'll also be similar to the Americas campaign in Vanilla Empire.

    I got the whole Rome collection on steam for a song, so I can't relate to that one :p

    Original rome was epic, but it'd burn my eyes now due to my recent level up to level 32 graphics whore.

    I played it a couple of weeks ago and, yes, you're right. It looks shit.

    New expansion announced.

    "5 New Playable Factions
    Play through the new Warpath Campaign or in multiplayer as one of 5 new American Indian factions in Empire: Total War, including the Iroquois, Huron, Plains, Pueblo and Cherokee nations.

    Expanded North American Territories
    A new, more detailed North American Campaign Map featuring new regions and a new start date.

    New Elite Units
    Command new Elite units specific to each American Indian faction including Mohawk Elite Warriors, Cheyenne Dog Soldiers, Navajo Scout Warriors and many more.

    Shaman and Scout Agents
    Two new agent types - Infiltrate enemy territory with the new Shaman unit and sabotage the opposition with the cunning Scout.

    New Tribal Technologies
    18 new tribal technologies including Spirit Medicine, the Call of the Wild and Dreamwalking creating a brand new tribal technology tree.

    New Objectives
    New winning objectives for each of the playable factions."

    Meh, hard to get excited about this when they've already announced Napoleon Total War for next February. Doesn't help that playing as Native Americans was hardly at the top of my priority list.

    Odd, this latest expansion direction. It's got that massive 'meh' factor to it, just like AOEIII Warchiefs did.

    Probably give it a miss. I've barely played with the European factions and I got through a very similar campaign in the medieval 2 expansion. New patch is out though, something about AI invasions?

    So in the first (kind of) Total War about gunpowder and cannon, the expansion is about Cowboys and Indians?

    Smart.

    Not so excited about the Cowboys and Indians TW.Napoleon sounds excellent though.First I've heard of it.
    Wonder if they'll do an African expansion eventually?

    edit*So the Napoleonic is stand alone then?

    patch seems to have fixed a few of my issues notably sound no longer stutters on the intro video.

    Also noticed the firing range/arcs are now a bit more visible than before.

    My love for this game has got really deep over the last 2 months or so.
    Short campaigns with Prussia,Ottomans and now Sweden have been a huge time sink.

    To quote KG from the EG review,"shiny buttons and musket shot are sexy"

    Any news on further expansions?I guess Napoleon is as good as ,if not a little expensive.

    I'm still waiting for them to actually finish the original game to be honest.
