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.

  • Licensed and TV supported by History, one of the best known brands for factual historical programming
  • As the English you will fight under the Black Prince, Henry V and other heroic characters from history, and as the French you fight for Joan of Arc and the King
  • 70 Medieval battles, including 26 historical encounters from the Hundred Years war, 1337-1453
  • Command more than 20 different units, including Crossbowman exclusive to Xbox360, all accurately researched and carefully modelled in amazing detail
  • Customise your squads of archers, cavalry, knights, etc with over 100 unique fighting, combat and weapon skills
  • Free form quest maps that allow players to decide when and where to fight within an historical framework
  • Innovative Battle Card system that gives realistic bonuses and penalties in battle

This is a must buy for any strategy gamer. Takes a while to get the hang of but after the first half an hour or so it gets really good! The detail is also pretty amazing! And for a new game 29.99 is very good!

Basically, if your a history enthusiast and/or appreciate medieval warfare then this is definitely a worth while purchase. However, given that this is a game and not a documentary I found it hard to get into the game itself. The best feature for me was the customisation of the units, although this is fun the points required for upgrading do take an awfully long time to gain, and if like me you enjoy this feature you will find yourself completing the same battle over and over again as 'side quests' to achieve these upgrades.
The main drawback to this game is the difficulty, and how even on the easiest setting the inconsistencies can overwhelm even the most competent gamers. One battle you may find takes a few minutes to complete, where the next battle seems practically impossible; given that you will have spent some time upgrading your army this comes as a shock and can deflate whatever morale you had for the game play. Not saying that I don't like a hard game, but when you put the effort into upgrading your troops you would expect a fair battle, here even on easy you can find yourself unable to progress. Its at these stages where you find yourself unable to complete the storyline battle or the side quests that you begin to question where you went wrong, or whether the game is just badly made.
Overall I would give the game a 7/10 maybe even an 8.
The graphics are pretty impressive at times and the fluidity of the gameplay makes it much more enjoyable. I cannot say that it is not worth 14.99 because it is.

 More Please!!

Got this game today and just finished the Tutorial.Initially confusing but when you get the hang of it you realise how good it is.As a fan of the Total War series on the PC i was hoping that one day something similar would appear on the xbox360 and this is it! Nice graphics and atmospheric background music(which you can turn off if you wish).If Total War never appears on the xbox360 then i hope Great Battles release more games.Would love to see Shogun,Napolean and Rome.Fingers crossed.Great game.
