  Medieval Total War 2;Gold Edition

| | See all Mikeyzilla's reviews (3)

Medieval Total war 2 focuses on Medieval Europe. At the beginning of the game England, France and some other countries are available to you. The aim of the game is to take a certain amount of settlements along with sometimes a particular settlement. On random occasions the Pope will call for a Crusade against a muslim settlement. If you choose to join this crusade you must go and fight to take this settlement from them.

Its gameplay is excellent for those who loved the predecessors, Empire Total War, Rome Total War. Where you can play as a God type character controlling the entire empire you create.

Battles can be Auto-Resolved to get through the campaign quickly, Or if you want to play them yourself it is equally fun. You will tell yourself i'll come off this in 10 minutes, Then you will get immersed in your own mission to take a settlement and realise you've played for another hour.

Medieval Gold Contains ; Americas, Teutonic, Britannia and the Crusades, These provide hours and hours of gameplay to the original game. Each game has the same type of objectives, just in different places and focuses on different factions in this time. Each faction in each game has unique units and battle styles.

This game is worth buying, I cant see how the next game of the Total war series could get much better than Medieval, it's pure gold for anyone looking to branch out into the RTS Gaming Branch.

  Most Addictive Game Ever !

| | See all GermanEskimo's reviews (200)

Want to be a King, want to be a General, now you can be, this game will have you absorbed for days, weeks, even months on end trying to conquer Europe, (or more with the expansion), incredibly intuative control system on the battle field, and you can manage your kingdom with just the right amount of detail, for all armchair generals a must !

  Deeply Immersing

| | See all mattmachine's reviews (6)

The Total war series has never disappointed me, and excels in almost every department in attempts.

The Graphics are superb and some of the effects are outstanding on a high spec machine. Every unit is rendered to act individually and independantly and so you can zoom in to a melee containing thousands of troops and watch two individual men battling it out in their own person war.

It is fairly easy to pick up the controls and has a nice difficulty balance, ranging from impossible to mind numbing easy - so anyone can play, and even the masterful tacticians will be tested.

The campaign is extremely addictive - where your goal is to conquer all the other factions on the map(of which there are vast amounts), and you will constantly find yourself saying "just another turn". Most often I forget about fighting the battles and just play out the campaign. Playing on hard can sometimes feel like a huge more complex game of chess!

Basically, this game is deeply immersing and there is so much going on at once, but yet it is so effortless to manage. A true favourite and im sure I will buy the next total war game when it comes out - certain it will be good!

  Addiction - To the MAX!

This game really does pump up the addiction factor. I've played every total war game to date, and this tops them all, well I should expect it to anyway. However, this isn't a bad not by the way, I prefer to play the game, complete it and then do the expansion pack. But that's me. Personally an awesome buy especially for the price, hours of fun believe me. :) one thing though, for people with low end comps please check that you have got the system requirements for the game, its annoying to get the game and it don't work. Just helping lol. :) BUY IT NOW!
