    Even on a sluggish laptop at low settings, it would probably still be fun. I'd just only play it when I'm sitting on the couch watching a movie / TV though. On a slower computer, the time between turns while your CPU decides what all the other factions are doing would probably take several minutes

    It's much more CPU intensive than GPU intensive, if that makes any sense to you. Honestly, unlike previous TW games, this one tends to run beautifully at high settings in the battle mode, but on the campaign map, those same high settings make it sluggish. If I had a laptop with the same basic power as my desktop PC, it would still probably run a bit more sluggish, so a slower laptop probably isn't ideal for this game.

    The map is amazingly big, and on the campaign map it's absolutely gorgeous. Here's an example.

    But because it looks so great, this contributes to the sluggishness. This is somewhat typical of a TW game though, it isn't until five years after release when you've got a completely new PC that you go back to play the game and it runs smoothly at high settings

    It's great. There are some people that don't like it, but I'm really loving it.

    After I finished the initial prologue campaign (using the Romans), I started a Grand Campaign with Sparta.

    Here are some recent shots of my campaign in progress from a map perspective:

    As you can see, I basically took over Athens and Macedonia and then invaded the Middle East. In the second picture, you can see I've invaded the boot and I've got several armies besieging Rome itself.

    I'm headed to bed soon, otherwise I'd take another screenshot showing that I've conquered the rest of northern Africa, Rome has been eradicated, and the only part of the Mediterranean coastline I don't control is Spain (which I'm currently invading).

    I'm having lots of fun with it. I especially like beating the CPU in battles where the "automate battle" predictor says I'd lose.

    heh, I hadn't found any legendary items until you mentioned it, than I found 2 in a row. Games much more fun to me on console than it was on pc.
