Default Medieval Total War

Im a big fan of Medieval stuff, so much, that when i get into College, im majoring Archology, and historian, or w/e that is.

Anyways, when this game came out, i just had to buy it.


Great thing about this game is the massive amounts of units on the battle field. You can have 100-10000s of troops on the field.

You also can choose from 4 ages:

Vikings
Early
Mid
Late

Each one a bit different, in years of course.

This game is unbelievable accurate.

For example, when i was playing the English, i defeated all the French, but when Joan of Arc came around, i had big *** rebellions in provences, and had to reinforce and lost a few.

This game requires great tactics, such as flanks/charging/putting peasents in front.

Reason is:

If your flanking the enemy, and you have all there flanks cover, there status goes lower, to fear of flanks, and if you charge from all sides, they flee.

Another major thing is choosing allys and enemies.

I made the mistake of allying with too many people, so to get more land, i have to break almost all my allys.

Scoring

Graphics 4/5 Not the best, but great as is
Fun Factor 5/5 If you know tactics, and play this right, youll love it
Control 5/5 Simple controls, select unit, press enemy to attack
Multiplayer 2/5 Lacks it badly, but, then again, your basically playing a Multiplayer game

Overall: 5/5, if you like RTS/Empire Building, youll love Medieval Total War.
