I’m not sure how I missed the Empire
demo going on Steam last Friday, but somehow I did. I suspect Harry did too, as I’m sure we would’ve heard him saying "I’m leaving at six on the dot to go play Empire
" last Friday. Cliff clearly didn’t miss the news
but I only stumbled across it by accident when wondering whether to buy Dawn of War II
through Steam or Play
(why does it cost £11 more through Steam, by the way?). Anyhoo, I saw the ad for the Empire
demo and started it downloading immediately.
The following are my initial thoughts on the two tutorials and the land battle that I had time to play before heading off for family funeral. (I’m not pitching for sympathy messages there btw, just explaining why I’ve only had time for a quick initial thoughts blog).
