This is an amazing Militaristic RTS game. You will command your army , but this is not too easy. Because AI is really smart and your troops need morale. This makes XIII Century a real-time tactical challenge. Also , it has got a good campaigns. But the sad thing is this game is underrated. However , you can simply play an infinite number of skirmish battles against the AI.

Graphics are realistic and exciting , attention to battlefield detail is high . Sounds are good enough but music could be better. Overall , this is a perfect game for RTS fans and worth every penny.
