I think this is one Total War game I could safely pre-order without playing the demo. There's going to be bugs (there always are) but I can't see CA messing this up. By going back to Shogun they have no new mechanics to implement like rifles or international sea trading routes.

It's a shame there's no Steam per-order bonus. I think retail copies are getting some. I would have liked if they released the original game on Steam and given it free with pre-order.

They released some "battle reports" vids, showing lots of gameplay.

Man, even if it's pre alpha it looks sweet. I've been waiting and waiting to upgrade my pc (currently dual core, Nvidia 9500) so this is a perfect excuse.

6 gigs. Another 90 minutes. Hope it doesn't suck. Empire left a bad taste in my mouth.

Wow, 6GB seems large for a demo, unless I am just out of touch with modern gaming requirements (I don't play many new games).

full game is 20gb. Only played for a bit but it seems very slick indeed. Pace of the battles seems a lot quicker. Campaign map is really nice. Music in the loading screen is the same as that from the first game. Performance is good.

started downloading this morning at 6:00 am local time. its now 7:14 pm, 89% done and the speed has dropped to 3kb/s. perfect.

im actually only playing the demo to see how it runs on my laptop. every part of shogun 1 was fantastic. way ahead of its time.

played the demo last nite. The Battle Ai is scripted in the demo so we cant tell weather the ai is any better.

They done this with the Empire demo too.

I swore after the fiasco that was Empire I'd never preorder a TW game again, but damn them, something about them going back to Shogun just fills me with a warm fuzzy feeling, an I loved the demo, even with scripted battle AI.

What graphics cards are folks going to run this on? I've got a 285 and want to run on 1900x1200 on high(ish) settings.
