InsightBits writes, "Empire Total War is the latest release in the Total War series and as such, had much to live up to. It surely didn't disappoint. The two biggest additions to this release are naval battles and additional theatres to play in. Total war addicts will remember that in previous games, the games scope was limited to Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Empire extends gameplay to India and the New World with a clever interface that makes it easy to manage your empire in various theatres."
