Summary: This game is a perennial classic with me. I am addicted to the Britannia campaign. Attention to detail historically this game carries you from the waning edge of Viking Invasions, through the Crusades, and ends in the Renaissance; and allows you to play all the historical tactics like a Swiss Pike Block formation that won so many battles and laid the foundation of the Swiss Mercenaries history.
Summary: The truth about this game is supreme. It brings you back to the eras of the Crusades and the intelligence of the New level was very interesting. Gold is the best value, for the RTS genre it does a well job bringing up the history's medieval history. Very Addictive. Great play. I had previously written a 3 star review but after revising, this game deserves no less than 5 stars. The Gold Era Indeed.
Summary: This is a really great game. Satisfying complexity and very solid graphics for its age. I really enjoy the mix of grand strategy and more intimate tactics. The military option is really the only way you are going to be expanding and it would be nice if that wasn't the case, but at least it's definitely the most fun. Really, my biggest gripe is that it is too much fun. It isn't good for my sleeping habits.
Summary: One of the only games I actually play (I'm not a big gamer). It's fun, strategic, and complex. In my latest play-through, I played as the English, and conquered all of Britannia before starting the Hundred Years War. In the one before that, I played as the Lithuanian Pagans, and repelled an invasion of Teutonic Order crusaders.
Summary: This game is by far one of the best Strategy games. You will need a newer computer to run it on the "high" settings but just turn down the graphics on an older comp. For the Amazon price you can beat it. I wasn't thrilled with the expansions but the base game is amazing!
Summary: I bought this game strictly for the Game of Thrones Mods available online. This is still a fun game that can be fun for all ages. Buy this game and search for the Mods that make this game so fun to play.
