A. Why is my game so laggy and slow?!

  1. Hey i bought Empire: Total War but it is extremely laggy!
    I have checked my specs on this site: cyri.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/analysis.aspx and my pc is so awesome that this game should be working on light speed!
    I have tried almost everything like closing internet etc. when starting it, and do a disc defragmentation, clean my whole pc from coockies and other stuff but it just keep lagging! So my question is: How is this possible and how can i solve this?! (BTW the A at the question title is just to make my question be at the top of the list.)

  1. Updated graphics drivers?
    Verified game cache? Right click on game under steam library the properties>LocalFiles
    Set options to low? V-Sync?
    Compatibility mode?

  2. After a bit of research its become clear that Empire Total War isn't very well optimised so it could just be your hardware.
