Excerpt: Medieval is a game that will probably be overlooked by most gamers, due to its non-existent publicity and lack of marketing. However, the reason for this is not due to a poorly created game, but that the game is essentially created by one person with not enough money to advertise.
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.
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.
Conclusion: Overall though, Medieval: Total War is a masterfully done strategy management game, which furthers the excellent concepts that were introduced in Shogun: Total War. It is a well-conceived and intelligent game, which serves as evidence that a lot of careful deliberation has went into its development.
Pros: An excellent idea expanded, enhanced and polished. Addictive and intelligent;
Cons: Quirky unit management issues. When will my soldiers learn to face the enemy and not the nearby hillside?
Excerpt: Strategy, tactics, control, vision, those are some of the requirements (alongside a powerhouse machine) needed from a player to enjoy this terrific title brought to you by The Creative Assembly.
