  • Summary: This expansion pack includes a brand new campaign map, featuring 32 controllable regions divided among four different factions. It is 1811 and the war in the Spanish Peninsula has been raging for over two years with mixed fortunes and heavy casualties for both sides. Napoleon’s Armée d’Espagne, led by Marshal Masséna, has invaded Portugal once again, but thus far, the network of entrenchments has proved impossible for the French to successfully assail. Although forced back to the edges of their Peninsula by France and the traitors who helped them, Spain is not yet out of the fight. The Supreme Central Junta and its successor, the Supreme Regency, authorized the forming of local bands to fight guerrilla – the “little war” – against the invaders. [Sega] Expand

  1. I'm wildly outnumbered. [Sept 2010, p.93]
  2. This expansion doesn't offer anything particularly game-changing, instead giving you more of what you would want as a fan of the game, namely a new campaign map, new units, and a host of new missions. The limited scope of the storyline does provide some focus and solid pacing, but comes at a price of some of the base game's non-military features.
  3. The Peninsular Campaign is certainly an entertaining add-On for Total War Fans, especially the cooperative multiplayer mode. But for those who prefer to conquer the world and a long-term entertaining game experience, should rather remain with Empire: Total War or search for alternatives.
  4. The entire Spanish campaign, despite the great music, colorful scenery and a handful of new features, is just a rehash.

    his campaign was excellent. The Guerilla unit was used frequently and the Preists/Provacatuers played key roles in the game. The game is very tactical and each nation has an interesting tactical position. The British with their small stronghold of Gibralter , Spain with desperate, divided positiions and the French with their vast armies spread across Iberia. My problems with the game is the lack of portugese playability and the requirement of mods and game editing to play as portugal. As a history lover I am a little saddened to see the lack of Portugese action. Collapse

    Pretty good campaign, it's miles above the Warpath campaign from Empire. You play on the Iberian peninsula and get to choose from three factions: France, Spain, Great Britain. Each faction is vastly different from the other two and requires different play styles. I found it odd that they left out Portugal as a playable faction, but it really didn't bother me too much. There are new units and agents as well to mix things up. I thoroughly enjoyed the campaign, and if you like the base game like I did, you are sure to like this DLC as well. Expand
