Fun game

red gevhere, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a fun game, and although an older total war game now, is still a lot of fun with good graphics. Warning though that this will suck up a lot of your free time.

Good for a few hours of fun

Frank Gentile, Amazon

  • 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. - The ability to manually control your soldiers is entertaining.. its total war after all.. however the outcome will likely be the same computer or manual control.

Fun, but has flaws

MJS, Amazon

  • 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. However, the battles can get a little monotonous - fire missiles (optional), send your infantry in, attack with your calvary from behind, chase down broken units with calvary, repeat.

Major Disappointing Bugs bog down a would be masterpiece

.... "..................", Amazon
22 June 2007
  • 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. When I opened up Medeival total war some of its aspects met par, but many were a huge disappointment. Medeival total war 2 takes place in the time period of just before the 1st crusade to the early colonial era.

Sieges are same old, other battles are beautiful, but alas, can't be fought at sea.

Berkeley Gamer, Amazon
29 January 2007
  • 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. There are no significant differences in the designs of castles and cities in different locations on the map.

KILL ALL YOUR PRINCESSES!!!!!

Staggerville, Amazon

  • 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. In battle, especially the cavalry units lagged behind your commands, and sometimes tend to waste incredible amount of time performing simple actions, such as chasing down a handful of retreating enemy.

Dumb AI, Fancy Graphics = Mediocre Innovation [Sigh...]

Zen Nataraj, Amazon
13 December 2006
  • Summary: I love TW games and haven't lost a campaign in over two years (playing at the hardest level). Despite all the innovations, Medieval II is somehow disappointing, and you better wait for a lower price, for the following reasons: The improvement in graphic detail at the individual level is outstanding. The introduction of fire weapons makes battles more chaotic and dramatic, and the view of besieged settlements is magnificent.

Medieval ii total warfare

ANGEVIN, Play.com
17 December 2007
  • Conclusion: I`ve had this game since June 07 as i bought a new pc, a 6600core2duo, direct10x card and Vista,etc, so it is high end. However, using Vista, i have found, can be annoying as can be a core2 duo cpu, when it comes to big army battles, both sides equalling about 1,500 men fighting in a seige situation(castle,fort,city), the game slows, as though the frame rates jump two or so at a time, slow motion like.It could be a bug issue as the Kingdoms expansion pack does other...
