    You need steam. You do not have to play online. You can play Steam in offline mode.

    No you will not be able to install the games without downloading Steam. So yes you need a internet connection, but once the games installed and registerd with Steam and eveything goes okay then you should be able to play the game without internet.
    So to answer your question, Yes you will need and internet connection. The day of popping in a cd and installing it and playing it is officially over for TW ;.(

    When I deployed to Iraq, I did not anticipate this. I envisioned laying on my cot at night, headphones on, playing my total war, escaping from the ****ty reality I was in, not ever thinking I'd need an internet connection to get started!

    I think people who live in a corporate air conditioned world are so out of touch with the rest of the world that they honestly think every person with a computer will have internet access. it's not a f*ck you mentality, they just honestly can't wrap their heads around the idea that there are people who don't or can't go online. It should have been a huge red label at the very least on the front of the box.
    This why I am just now playing empire, back in the states... I've owned the game for a year.
    Thanks.

    It could be worse: for Assassin's Creed 2, players need to have a Permanent Broadband Internet Connection.

    Once installed you will have no problem playing, whether online or off-line. Keep in mind though, if you are a Stats Person, that off-line will not roll up into anything. Not a big deal, IMO, but it is to some people.
