Summary: Played the game for years, but lost the codes to put on a new computer. This game is still one of the best Total War games ever released. The download was fast and easy, the only minor problem comes when I start the game and it tried to connect to the update server and can't. Overall rating is 5 Stars.
Summary: I picked up this game on a whim. Considering how Sega has mostly bastardized the Total War series (Empire anyone?), my expectations where rather modest. They were shattered in ten minutes of playing. The tutorial was great. Simple and to the point, and it let me relax a bit, having never played a Medieval game before. Graphics are vastly improved from other titles, and the part where you can see each individual soldier taking damage really helped with immersion.
