strategies and graphics, you need to think

by Conrad on 1/18/2009

I love games that make me think. You are not only the army’s general, but the leader of a faction. Each action has meaning. You control not only the army but the growth of the cities. You don’t weld the weapons just their locations and movements. This is a role playing game, with turn by turn actions, and high graphics for the battles. A good game for those with a military mind.

Review As much as I love the Civilization series, I'll be the first one to admit that it's not for everybody. Thankfully, The Creative Assembly's Total War franchise is here to satisfy players who prefer to avoid the minutia of building an economically viable empire in favor of trampling their rivals under the boots of an unstoppable army. Medieval II: Total War trims the bells and whistles off of empire management in order to dig deeply into the tactics and strategy of conducting continent-spanning wars. More importantly, this game does it very, very well...Historical scenarios, multiplayer, and the ability to play as several different factions in the main campaign just add to Medieval II's draw. There is a metric ton of game to be enjoyed here, and I heartily recommend it to anyone with a lick of interest in the subject matter.

Review For any who were in awe of their Roman accomplishments, be prepared to see a much deeper experience. This is no simple time-line facelift; it's an evolution of Total War...For the benefit of those new to the games series, you can choose quick battles and jump straight into the action on the battlefield, or plan your conquest and legacy of an Empire...Medieval 2: Total War is worth every pound, dollar and euro pumped into the game from the developers, and then from the gamers wallets into their bank account coffers. This is the latest and most outstanding title in the Total War franchise, any history RTS buff or fan of the series would be psychotically imbalanced should they choose to pass on this.
