"Huge scale battles like no other"
5 stars"

The scale of this game is amazing! If you have a pretty grunty PC with lots of memory and a good graphics card it's a brilliant game. It takes aaaaaaaages to conquer the work so don't expect to clock this game in a hurry. The detail on individual units is superb for the number that are in the game. It's not just about the battles either, if your into more of an economy/spy/di­plomacy base strategy game this will be right up your alley. I have had it for quite a while now and still have a lot of game time left with this title.

You can adjust number of units in battle, detail and a number of other things which make the game experience really amazing provided you have the hardware.

Great game.

"The Current Pinacle of Stategy Gaming"
5 stars"

Total war has long been the best experience in both real time and strategy gaming. Since Rome Total War I have been enthralled with this series.

Medieval Total war introduces a staggering campaign of immense possibilities with so many different Units and strategic as well as tactical choices. The game looks brilliant even for its age, with a DX10 card and a reasonable processor, it barely stresses your system except during massive army encounters. The only bad point about this game is eventually you learn that the AI can be a little retarded in places, not really taking advantage of some blunders you make. Saying that however they can surprise you and shock you with their ruthless nature.

I would highly suggest patching this game upon purchase, it makes a lot of bugs disappear.

I would suggest this game to anyone with an interest in history and a passion for both real time and turn based gaming. Its the perfect game to learn strategies and keep your mind going when you stop playing!

Description

Medieval II is the latest and greatest game to be released in the best selling and award-winning Total War series. Set in the years 1080-1530 the most turbulent period in European history, the game combines a vast, deep-thinking turn-based strategy campaign with the most cinematic, epic and brutal real-time battles ever seen in the genre.

A vastly enhanced version of the Total War engine vividly portrays the pure bloodlust of Medieval warfare with massive battles of more than 10,000 troops splayed across new graphically rich environments. For the first time in the Total War series each troop is an individual, garbed with the rich heraldic colours and glinting arms and armour of the period.

On the battlefield they'll survey their surroundings for threats and incoming opponents and react accordingly. When engaged they'll string together a series of devastating moves as Medieval 2's new combat animation brings the conflict to life like never before. Total War has never been so ferocious or realistic.

The Medieval 2 grand campaign will hand you the reins of one of an emerging faction as you set about sweeping throughout Europe, conquering all before you. Expand your borders and develop your lands for wealth and prosperity by building cities or swell your army by constructing vast castles to protect your land and keep your rivals quaking with fear.

Use Princesses for diplomatic gain, Priests to spread the influence of your religious beliefs and Merchants to fill your coffers for your war effort. All the time the Pope and the Papal States watch over the Christian world, assessing the strength of your faith and making demands to prove your loyalty. Do you cater to his whims and avoid excommunication or plot his downfall and rig the papal elections to place your own Pope in power?
