This strategy RPG is the most detailed and realistic medieval combat model ever created. In these epic encounters players must lead armies through the greatest of medieval wars and make history live again. Famous figures like The Black Prince, Joan of Arc and Henry V all take their turn in this epic conflict deploying new weapons and battle tactics that finally left England as an island nation.

Great Battles: Medieval is the second title in the highly successful Great Battles series, which saw its first appearance with the release of Great Battles of Rome.

Great Battles: Medieval is based on the historical events of the Hundred Years War, the most famous conflict of medieval times fought between France and England that shaped the future of both countries for centuries to follow. It features Slitherine's cutting edge graphic engine and a brand new game play system that allows players to be in complete control of massive armies. From the thunderous charge of the knights to the men-at-arms fighting for their lives in hand-to-hand combat, the game will recreate the epic feel of medieval battles, featuring thousands of characters simultaneously.

 interesting strategy

This game is great for a strategy buff like me, you can purchase units for your army, and upgrade them or customize them, great range of units and deep strategy. You you can zoom right in during battle which looks cool during battles. It does take some getting into though, You can also increase the difficulty if you want a challenge. only trip-up is graphics are bad in some parts, great in others. Not a kids game as you need patience to enjoy it, could have been better but i give it 4/5.

I did quite enjoy this title though it plays quite basic. The formula is fight a major battle and grind to level up through minor skirmishes to give you additional and improved troops for the next major one. Ignore the video shown,the battles shown appear more epic than I have experienced and you will be playing this with the camera zoomed out unfortunately it then starts to look like a pig! some of the maps end up looking sub PS2 with their lack of detail (English campaign lvl13). Some battles are far too easy (Crecy in 3 mins - Not good!) and then there are the difficulty spikes (English campaign lvl13 again!) meaning more grinding to further improve my army, I haven't tried this online maybe between friends it could be ok? and don't get me started on the cut scene videos History the american version... Hmm.

Maybe i went into this expecting too much as i loved the Medieval series on PC, if your expecting that then you will be disapointed. The game is playable but it is very basic. Should have kept my cash for COD Black Ops.
