I've been thinking about getting it. I have all the other Total Wars pre Empire. Is it much better than Medieval ? I would be interested in a TOG online play if I get the game.

I've got both (In fact all except Shogan). Medival and Napoleon are the same formula in gameplay (But E:TW and N:TW both have Naval Battles). But that's where the simlarities end. The battle stratagies are totally different because of Artillary and Musket/Rifle regiments and the use of formations, also diplomacy is alot more involve with more options to make or break relations with other factions.
E:TW was a mess out of the box (and took about a year to get fixed), N:TW is very polished and I can say I've had to problems running it from day 1

Napleon is pretty good, I do have the odd issue of it only using one core on the odd occasion but its an easy fix.

Plus I love arty!

I have them all including shogun (sad but true love the last 2 especially Etw and Nappy love horse and musket. When playing online what location are people using? I have found London and LA the best for players (lagg issues in London but the La is ok ) biggest problem for multiplayer is steam (grrr) group you with your region ain't nobody home in Queensland I'm hopping for a tweak or too when they release The Peninsular Campaign.
I am really keen to do some online gaming the Waterloo and Ligny and Lody battles are awesome especially when playing other people. My steam account ( pathetic middleman, company many issues with them is Phoshperus

look forward to playing some battles then back home for some tea and meddles

As a relative newbie I still haven't ventured into multiplayer, I'm pretty sure I would get slaughtered.

Still my Steam ID is Steam Community :: ID :: TOG | King Rocket if any Total War freaks want to add me.

My Steam ID is Bughunter Bob. I must admit the multiplayer game is rather fun, though the first time I played way back when the game decided to drop me like a hot plate. But despite that, it is amazingly involved in all aspects of diplomacy and so forth. I'd be happy to get back into multiplayer mode too.
