Great game.

Parents need to know that Napoleon: Total War is a real-time strategy game with some profanity, moderate violence, sexual themes, and open online text chatting. It’s focus is to create an accurate interactive depiction of famous French general Napoleon Bonaparte and the governments, economies, and military tactics of his time. Battles generally take place from a bird’s eye view, where we see hundreds of soldiers firing cannons, shooting muskets, and slashing swords. There is no blood, save a small amount seen in one of the game’s cutscenes. The characters talk about sex and alcohol in general terms, but nothing is shown on screen. It’s a complex and challenging experience; definitely not for strategy game rookies (unless they have patience to suffer through long tutorials and many initial defeats as they learn the ropes). Note, too, that the game facilitates open text chat between players. Common Sense Media does not recommend open online play for children twelve and under.
