  • Excerpt: Leonis Software has released a downloadable strategy guide for MedievalII: Total War called the Warboard. It says something about the Medieval II: Total War that such a product even exists. And that, in itself, speaks volumes of the quality of the Total War franchise's output over the last decade.

Medieval II Total War Kingdoms

  • Excerpt: The total war expansion pack is upon us and gives us 110 new units to take command of, as well as whopping 13 new factions, 27 new multi player maps and a few tools to keep things interesting for a long time to come. Speaking of the SDK tools, the designers are nice enough to give the player a few tools to bring their own twist on the game, those who are enterprising enough with their own creative spark now have the ability to create their own content or Mods.

Medieval Total War II

1 January 2007
  • Excerpt: The game is proof that a big name tacked onto a game does not necessarily guarantee a great game. It just seems like a game trying to ride on name recognition alone. Maybe Railroad or Sid Meier fans are all a gush and may actually enjoy the game. Maybe I am just tired of seeing yet another game that has the creators name in the title.  The game is a remake of Mr. Sid Meier's well loved railroad game from the early 90's. Looking at it, I had a feeling of dread.

Medieval II: Total War UK Review

IGN
8 November 2006
  • Conclusion: To be honest, Total War would have benefited hugely from a total overhaul, because the experience is getting too similar to its predecessors for anyone familiar with the series. The interface is beginning to show its limitations, and the more that’s added for the player to control the more cluttered it gets and the less refined it feels.

  • Conclusion: for diplomacy, presumably through well thought out arranged marriages, and priests that can help to spread your beliefs to neighboring lands. Interestingly, religion will play a prominent role in Medieval II , reflecting the sway that the Catholic Church held over Europe during the Middle Ages. The Pope will always be watching the various nations’ behavior, ensuring that their leaders’ policies are appropriately pious.

  • Conclusion: Quite simply breath taking. It just isn't possible to do the game justice in a review. Fans of Shogun or fans of strategy games in general owe it to themselves to own Medieval Total War.

Medieval: Total War

The Gamers Temple
27 June 2004
  • Excerpt: If you've played the game Shogun: Total War, then you'll find a lot familiar with Medieval: Total War.  Not that that's necessarily a bad thing - with Medieval: Total War you'll get the same strategic and tactical component, including the massive real-time battles for which the first game was known.  Medieval: Total War is not an expansion game, though; it is a complete game and stands on its own.
