A good game

I have been a great fan of Total War games since the first time I played Rome Total War. But somehow I managed to skip Medieval II: Total War, and when it was on sale I decided to correct this mistake.

For the fans of Total War games everything will be familiar - it is the best turn-based strategy game ever created (together with Civilization series). You choose the nation and then rule it. You decide who to ally with, who to fight with. You can conquer the whole world (as I did in Rome installment).

The gameplay has two variations: on global map in turn-based way you choose the destination of your armies, when they arrive the real time battle starts. There are lots of different formations and units. The strategy is very important as well. You can flank the opponent!

The graphics still look pretty good, though, for me it was never a crucial point. I can still play the games released ten years ago.

The expansion which was sold together with the game adds a few interesting things such as discovery of America and Crusades. So it isn't a cheap DLC that adds a unit, it is new campaign.

All in all I am glad I have bought this game and I wonder how I could have missed it!

One of the Best Total Wars

This is easily one of the best Total War games in the series by far. The graphics still hold up even today, They aren't the best but they still have not become an eyesore by today's technology. When you get tired of the vanilla campaign there are also many great TWC (Total War Center) hosted mods to keep the game fresh, from fantastical mods such as Warhammer, Game of Thrones and even Lord of the Rings to historic expansions such as Stainless Steel and Deus Lo Vult.

Total WAHHHHHHHHH

Medieval Total War 2 is getting a little long in the tooth now. It's looks are fading when compared to it's younger siblings, Shogun 2 and Rome 2.

However, I guarantee that within ten minutes of playing, you won't be worried about the graphics. You WILL be worrying about grain, upgrades to your battlements and your French neighbour who keeps sending spies across your border.

That's before you even get into your first battle. There is something stirring about watching your formations of men wheeling around to flank the enemy and charging into battle at an opportune moment.

I can say without doubt, that £3.74 will buy you dozens, if not hundreds of hours of entertainment. Also, because it is a relatively old game, you don't have to have a Large Pixel Collider PC to run it.

Just buy it, even if you have little interest in the period.

One of the Best in the Total War Series

Medieval II is starting to show its age, but I still find it an engrossing game, even more so than Rome Total War (the old one, not the new one) that many Total War fans seem to worship. Gameplay is ultimately very similar to the original Rome Total War, which is no surprise as Medieval II was made using the same game engine. However, improvements in both gameplay (new types of map characters like merchants, and the split between castles and cities) as well as cosmetics (the return of assassination mini-movies, and much improved graphics (which even nowadays is pretty impressive)). Unlike other later Total Wars like Empire and Rome II whose numerous additions and changes overwhelmed the player, and were perhaps too ambitious and complex for their own good, Medieval II had a decent balance between adding in new features while still retaining what made earlier Total Wars interesting. With a variety of factions, an expansion that adds in four new campaigns, and many mods available and still being developed, it has a high replay value. While I personally think Shogun II was more accomplished in its visuals and its streamlined, sensible gameplay, Medieval II isn’t too bad either. It is probably the Total War I’ve played the most alongside Shogun II, and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good, cinematically amazing strategy game.
