Summary: There is an issue with the play aspect of the game . When in battle my armies get stuck everywhere and you have a difficult time trying to fight the enemy . it's almost as if there are no patches downloaded to this Gold Edition game like there is supposed to be .
Summary: I purchased this since I was a big fan of Total War Rome. My thoughts after about 20 hours of play are the following: - The computer will cheat - Good luck winning any Normal or higher mode games against the computer - This is a fun game to kill a few hours with.
Summary: Building up your empire and getting new types of units is fun, as is the variety of countries you can play (Poland takes over the world?). Graphics look really good and its fun to see the fights up close.
Summary: As someone who has played previous games in the Total war series i must say that nothing new is to be expected from this game. Its offers new factions and some cool units plus the usual backround info they give that gives you a nice insight to what weapons they used back in the medieval to early...

Summary: As a huge fan of Rome:total war and its expansions, I was anxiously awaiting the release of this game. In Rome total war, the quick battles, amazing campaigns, and customized battle scenarios gave me months of playtime, literally.
Summary: the game is a bit of a letdown if you prefer multiplayer games to single player games. for starters, the campaign mode in M2TW is single player only. you can play campaign mode multiplayer on the same computer via hotseat, but not over the internet.
Sieges are same old, other battles are beautiful, but alas, can't be fought at sea.

Summary: This game is Rome: Total War moved into the middle ages. That is, it has the good and the bad that Rome had, with minor polishes in graphics and strategy. There are two gameplay features that were really grating in Rome. First, sieges are essentially the same every time.
Summary: Having logged in thousands of hours playing Rome Total War, I find this new version of the franchise satisfying, but lots of areas, namely the AI, seem to have not improved at all, in some cases, it is even worse than in Rome total war.
