I happened to be in my local branch of Game on release day and heard an interesting conversation between a customer and a staff member.
The customer was looking to buy Empire: Total War. He said he'd been a fan of franchise since Shogun: Total War and had played each iteration extensively. He was really looking forward to playing Empire as like many of us he saw it as the logical conclusion of the series so far."
