Wow, this game is still broken

I played about 40 hours, now I can't progress, at the end turn the game jumps to the desktop when the pirates take a turn.

It seems odd that they would start banging out DLC after DLC and two newer games with such major problems. It's now about 2 years on, and the game is still broken.

Is it really sega's fault?

I thought Creative Assembly made the game. Sega's just a publisher right?

You're right.

It's pretty irritating that they abandoned the issues with E:TW with they have seemingly fixed most of them in N:TW. I would love to play Empire, I would love to give them my money for it, but I absolutely will not knowing it's so full of bugs and that it barely functions with my video card.

its a great game.. Just bought it a few day ago. and have already logged like 25 hrs.. but it lags soooooo bad and crashes to desktop randomly.

i7 920 @ 4.0
gtx 470
6 gigs of ram

games dont lag for me.. only this one. its brutal. I noticed when I opened task manager it was using over 1,000,000 in memory. Obviously its a memory leak somewhere.

But because of this, i wont be buying any more of these games.

I have the same issue, though i'm on a much lower "rig".
Sometimes it'll get to around 1.4gigs of memory, though only at the campaign map. Considering i'm on vista, and only have 2 gigs of RAM, this is a ridiculously huge amount of RAM for the game to use.

I just fired it up now and checked task manager.. after about 10 minutes i was up to 1,600,000 kb of RAM used. it jsut turns into a slide show and i can barely play. I jsut auto resolve battles because its unplayable

Like company of heroes, bc2, hell any game never goes over 600,000

Rome Total War was really good, Medieval2 Total War is quite nice, and ever since I actually found the games to get worse, only thing that gets better is the eyecandy. Shogun2 is the first I didn't get.

Shogun 2 is actually by far the best Total War game, by a mile.
You're missing out.

I've heard it's a pile of 4rse. Personally, RTW was the best.

Whoever said that probably doesn't know anything about anything bro. Empire Total War was my favorite anyway, despite the bugs, I loved playing as America.

Pretty much all my friends with the game, minus one person, and about 50% of Metacritic.
I liked Empire, especially crushing America (<3), it was just unfinished is all. Every faction had the same units besides a different unit colour. Yea, nice going TCA.

Well, sadly they're wrong. Shogun 2 is pretty damn great.

Still, I wish Empire would work. I'm on turn 99 as sweden and when I end turn it crashes on Prussia's turn. It's my favourite period Total War has covered so far
