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.

Medieval: Total War

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: Where oh where has the summer gone? Well, a lot of it, I admit, went into playing video games. And what does a videogame reviewer play when he’s not reviewing videogames? I’ll tell you. I continued playing Grand Theft Auto 3 after the review was over, and while it gets repetitive after a while, I still think it’s a brilliant game. I also stuck with Jedi Knight 2 as my 1st person shooter of choice.

Medieval: Total War

ActionTrip
29 August 2002
  • 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. The idea of total war is taken to another level, as Medieval: Total War clearly shows that total war is not all about brute force - quite the contrary.
  • 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?

Medieval

Game Over Online
18 August 1998
  • 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. Being a war simulation, the graphics are not spectacular and again most people won't give this game a chance because of this.

Ungewöhnliche Mischung aus Runden- und Echtzeitstrategie

  • Excerpt: Erst bei näherem Hinsehen ist erkennbar, dass die vielen Tausen Einheiten recht detailarm dargestellt werden. [Quelle: ] Europa im späten elften Jahrhundert. Papst Urban II ruft zum ersten Kreuzzug auf, die Feudalherren folgen ihm mit Freuden. Das Versprechen auf Vergebung der Sünden, die Aussicht auf ein ewiges Leben und nicht zuletzt die Hoffnung auf weltliche Reichtümer lassen das in zahlreiche Kleinstaaten zerfallene Europa nach Palästina marschieren.

Medieval : Total War

JeuxVideo.fr
31 December 2003
  • Excerpt: Après un Shogun Total War particulièrement réussi et un add-on pour faire durer le plaisir, les petits gars de Creative Assembly se sont remis au boulot tout en conservant un principe qui jusque-là a su séduire bon nombre d'amateurs de stratégie en temps réel, teintée de tactique façon jeu de plateau au tour par tour.

Medieval Total War Viking Invasion

30 December 2003
  • Excerpt: Vikingerne kommer! De vil med sikkerhed brænde vores kvinder ned, voldtage fårene og stjæle vores huse… eller noget i den stil i hvert fald. Det er øjeblikke som dette der gør en stolt af at være dansker, når man med nostalgi i stemmen kan sige: “Ja det var så mine forfædre, der brændte jeres landsby af… og jeg ville gøre det samme hvis du vil låne mig din lighter”.
