Pretty impressive... wow Creative Assembly is kicking ass on PC so PC gamers can't complain about games that make their rigs cry.

I wonder how much memory this game consumes... I would wager it would need a minimum of 1.5GB of graphics ram but maybe I'm wayyyyy too optimistic here.

Nice physics and awesome water, fire, smoke, etc specially considering the bang up job they did with their previous game Total Shogun.

That was actual gameplay... its obvious you have no clue how the Total War games play.

You manage troops.

If you want to BE a TROOP or HERO you play Dynasty Warriors games.

    Moonwalker @Sdarts: No lies detected man, very true. I don't know why I didn't notice it before, then again my only way of seeing a HDR game was via a video or two. But now with my own games and being able to (15 Hours ago)
