    Played it, it was incredibly buggy and crashy with absurdly long load times. The game itself ( i only played land ) was pretty cool, nothing particularly surprising but it looks like it'll be a good game if they can polish it up a bit.

    downloading it now, it's out at the start of march right?

    I would have hoped they would have had ironed most of the bugs out by now.

    That's what the paid beta is for.

    That's not the game, that's your computer or something being shitty.

    Considering that thread is 41 pages long I don't think it's just me

    I could load MTW2 with gigantic mods in under a minute, ETW demo takes me around 8 minutes to load the menu, and another 2 to load the actual battle.

    I told one of my units to move. It didn't move. Instead, it changed formation to an extremely long line of single men.

    That's when I quit. The game was also slow as hell.. Not my style.

    EDIT: And yes, the load times were ridiculous. Longest I have ever seen, even longer than Doom 3.

    People should learn to not use computers from the 90's.

    I did the land battle and got my arse owned, but it was still awesome. I also did the naval battle, which was uber awesome. Both land and naval battles have amazing graphics. But there are long load times (hopefully it isn't like that with the actual game) and I did crash when trying to play the naval battle a second time.

    I have a pretty good computer, my load times in all games are good. This game takes forever and ever to load. Oh, and if you're in the main menu, you alt tab and go back in IT STARTS LOADING AGAIN! Rofl. And not because my computer is slow with alt tabbing. No, it actually starts loading the game again, with a load bar and everything. Not sure why but it sucks.

    That demo is beyond awesome... I just can't wait for the game. They really went into detail this time, and the AI also got quite a push since the pityful excuse that was Medieval 2.

    Rated A for Awesome.
