All around fun

romenjack | Nov. 14, 2014 | See all romenjack's reviews »

This game had everything that i loved about Rome Total war with all the fun of the first Medieval Total war. The combat is expansive and enjoyable. It challenging enough to be fun but not punishingly so. The economy can be a little frustrating at times and just make you want to put in a cheat code to get lots of money just so you can get to the actual fighting but the struggle to maintain a large army and also have money in the bank can be part of the fun. The separate story campaigns are not only fun but can give you a little more perspective on History and why things happened the way that they did. You can understand the fear when the Mongols are nearing and just tearing through everything that they make contact with. All and all a fun time that you will waste way to many hours of your life palying.

GREAT STRATEGY GAME

HitManHunt | April 16, 2014 | See all HitManHunt's reviews »

If you are familiar with any of the other titles in the Total War franchise, then you will be familiar with this one! The main thing that changes between these titles are which empires are at war and the colonies in which they rule...

This particular title is great because it truly does capture just what the series is meant to be all about. I have personally always found the Medieval time period fascinating and the factions / units involved are great for a series such as this. Very fitting indeed!

The gameplay and mechanics are going to be very similar to the other titles in this franchise. You will have the option to do a full campaign, allowing you to oversee your settlements, while creating and dispersing your armies across vast reaches of land, then battling to eliminate your opposition and conquer your foes. The cool thing is that you can also just do the battles if you don't want to go that in depth or maybe want to change / participate in actual historic battles!

It has the option of being very simplistic or going very in depth. With that being said, there is a slight learning curve to the series, however nothing extremely difficult for one to grasp within one sitting.

The graphics are great for when the game was released, however compared to the more recent titles, may leave you wanting. I find the graphics to be quite sufficient and adequate enough for every aspect of the game. There are many options to be tweaked, allowing a wide range of customizations. Any modern computer build should be able to run this title at max settings with great FPS.

Overall this is a great purchase, especially with all of the DLC, including a huge amount of content and replay value. Having all the DLC included allows one to jump into a huge number of battles, or play the campaign with so many factions that every new campaign should feel like a brand new experience.

Total War games are totally worth every penny! This game is very enjoyable and the franchise has brought years of entertainment that is difficult not to come back to!

A good game

mcofdiablo | Feb. 9, 2014 | See all mcofdiablo's reviews »

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

brandonm87 | Nov. 20, 2013 | See all brandonm87's reviews »

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.
