Summary: I think I was expecting too much out of this expansion. After playing Rome: Total War and Medieval II: Total War for years I felt it was time to try out the expansion since it was on sale. The price was fine, but the lackluster models and map layouts were disappointing to say the least. All in all it felt like everything was slapped together and tossed out before it was polished.
Summary: Creative Assembly first came out with Shogun Total War - good game with interesting gameplay. Then they made Medieval Total War which was a wonderful, engrossing, educational, and fun game - with many hours at the keyboard. Then they made Rome Total War and decided to go in a different direction. Then they made this game and followed the Rome direction instead of staying with the original Medieval TW environment. Bad move, guys.
Summary: I say 50/50 because as i do like the new units,features and new mini campaigns i was not happy that the new units and features were not included in the original campaign.I also did not like the fact that as a European you have a starting point in the Americas instead of playing the Spanish,French or English in the original campaign and at some point sail over seas to form a colony.I feel the game makers just took to many short cuts on this expansion.This could have been...
Summary: Although the expansion game is everything advertised, I miss the strategic scope of Medieval Total War (I or II.) There are the four separate games, all on maps that are expanded fragments of the original scope of MTW2. It also updates the MTW2 basic game, and changes it in minor, annoying ways. I guess I was hoping for more new units from the expansion in an update.
Summary: I have more than got my money's worth from the original. Will I with this release? Perhaps. As others have noted, it really is a collection of mods - but then I don't do multiplayer anymore, so poor functionality in this respect doesn't bother me. I had a lot of difficulty installing. It kept on getting hung up trying to install patch 1.3 saying the patch 1.2 had "modified the files" (well DUH!). I tried doing a clean install of the original game and had the same result.
Summary: Ok la siguiente opinión la voy a hacer suponiendo que ya han jugado el Medieval II Total war, no voy a hondar en detalles técnicos ni voy a explicaros los distintos aspectos del juego, simplemente voy a deciros mi opinión final y mi comparación con el resto de la saga. Este es un juego de video , como ningun otro, el motor gráfico y la temática tienen madera para ser desarrollados de forma brillante, incluso me atrevería a decir que podría usarse como apoyo en los...
Pros: La enorme potencialidad del juego en cuestiones Políticas ,Religiosas y Militares
Cons: IA deja mucho que desear, bastante molesta, tonta y sin sentido .
