You can get it from here: Filefront. It's usually works better for me, As I can't the stand the wait times for fileplanet. I get all my stuff from here and usually don't have a wait time on their public servers or need to log in like fileplanet. Smile

Well, amazon.co.uk lists as being oct 1 , with a sept 22 release for the US. But, as pc games go, that is what's currently listed subject to change of course. It's ok, I can wait patiently, as I own the previous two games in the total war trilogy I just play those until it comes out. And, after looking at this demo for a little bit, they are truly improving this series as they go along. I'm just loving it. Smile

Short demo, way to short. Finished the tutorial, then the actual proper demo lasted like 10 mins Confused

Thanks. Yes what promises to be the biggest and possibly best change is the campaign map as there are no absolute borders anymore and it should to be even more tactical. Add to the fact the new visuals and units i am sure it will be something special.

@ Madgaz - The demo is short i agree but demos for RTS's are always a bit lacking I think as you can never get your teeth into them unlike FPS demos.

As always with the Total War games, the real meat of it lies in Campaign mode, and they are hardly going to throw that into the demo. I think the Demo is great, and those Elephants really do wtfpwn, even if they get attacked and become broken and run amok, they cause even more wtfpwnage, you just have to kill them before they get to close to your own troops lol.

Anyone seen amok'ing elephants regroup yet? I let them run around for 15 minutes and they were still going crazypaving in the middle of a forest somewhere.

It's really good, but short and wayyy 2 easy on normal, i hoped it would be harder. U have the 2 advantages of the hidden cavalry and a slightyly uphill position but they really really outnumber u.

Personally i saw the elephants and, giggling moronically, charged them stupidly directly into the front line, they killed a few poor roman wenches but were of course routed, trampling my skirmishers on their way back, leaving me just smiling with a vacant 'wow,,,' look on my face,,

Anyways after that i won rather decisively, killing all the romans bar about 20 who escaped my ruthless slaughter, but it left me feeling dissapointed that it wasnt harder. Gonna try it on hard now if i can :)

It is easy becuse the romans are very scripted to run away in fear easy hehe
