Medieval: Total War Gold Edition is the compilation of the critically-acclaimed Medieval: Total War and its official expansion pack - Total War Kingdoms. Set in the turbulent Middle Ages, Medieval puts you in command of your own empire as you crush neighboring kingdoms and unify all of Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East. Medieval: Total War Kingdoms features four entire campaigns centered on expanded maps of the British Isles, Teutonic Northern Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas. In Medieval II, you were only given a glimpse of South America, but in Kingdoms, vast tracts of land in both North and South America have been opened up for you to conquer. All-new factions from the New World are also now fully playable, including the Aztecs, Apaches, and Mayans. In both games, you rule all aspects of your kingdom throughout centuries of medieval warfare. Lay siege to mighty fortresses and command vast armies across the battlefields of Europe and North Africa. This is Total War.

In short absolutely engrossing and HUGE value for money!!
Instead, I'll say that as a veteran of other Total War games, I found this version offered relatively little that was new. Especially if you've played Rome TW. The first time I played this game it was on Hard/Hard. After that it was Very Hard/Very Hard no reloading and I never lost. So the challenge level isn't there if you are good at the games. It's really a race to expand to roughly 8-10 countries, and then after that the AI is never smart enough to launch a big enough attack that will threaten your kingdom unless you leave it open to attack. The different factions within the game are interesting, as they all have some unique strengths and units. The expansion packs follow that theme. The Americas was my favorite expansion pack. Crusades was fairly boring, Britannia was very similar, and Teutonic was much of the same. You do get good value in terms of single-player game time, but it's at the expense of deeper challenges as the AI is quite predictable and not nearly strategically ruthless enough. Diplomacy is slightly improved, but not enough to make it a strong solution in the game (it's Total War after all).
All in all then this is either a very fun introduction to the TW series, or it's an amusing, but not amazing, continuation of the series.
the middle earth completely mapped, with all nations and heroes in the books

This discs died on us already so we are unable to play any more. I think the discs were cheaply made because they malfunctioned pretty fast, but the game was good.Published 16 months ago by r
