About This Game

As King, it is your duty to lead your people in their struggle to raise your kingdom from its humble beginnings to a position of power and prestige. War, diplomacy and a burgeoning economy are the means by which you increase your power and expand your influence. A unique Knight-management system will offer you brand new possibilities to enhance your personal strategy.
  • Loyal knights blessed with special skills stand true at your side. Use them wisely in the military, the administration of your lands and in diplomacy, and then use their hard-won experience to further develop their talents as you see fit.
  • Astute development of your estates and castles both satisfies your people and secures you decided strategic advantages. A suitable infrastructure can soon promote a flourishing economy. Exotic resources and relicts are spread over the game world and will reward your complete kingdom with special amenities.
  • Lead your hand picked troops into battle and conquer enemy realms. Storm massive fortresses or lay siege to them and starve your enemies out or even poison the water. Defend your own realms against invading forces and use your tactical skills wisely.
  • Use your feel for diplomacy when concluding trade agreements or entering into military alliances. Choose husbands for your daughters wisely, consolidating your power through marriage. Be ever on the watch for assassins and spies - and do not get caught yourself.

Played as Teutonic Order. Sent spy to Byzantium. Educated spy to the max level. Spy became Byzantine Emperor. Ordered him to give me the crown. Got whole Byzantium for myself.

10/10

Would be the most hated ruler for doing that again.

Those silly Byzantines...
Those silly English...
Those silly French...

They said... Ireland would never take England... They were wrong.

They said... Ireland would never take Western Europe... They were wrong.

They said... Africa could not be tamed... They were Wrong...

I kept the tradition of conquest... Like my Father did... We took Europe, and made it our own...

Because... We need more land to grow potatoes! :D

Now who wants some?

It doesn't seem we will ever see a sequel, which is a shame considering how advanced this game was for its time. Even by today's standards it is a very enjoyable grand-strategy title and features some of the best diplomacy in the genre. Sending a spy to infilitrate an opposing faction and watching him seize their lands for you, only to find out he has claimed the lands for himself and has usurped you, is just a taste of the possibilities the campaign gives you. Highly recommended and I would love to see features from this game introduced and evolved in future TW titles.

Wow.

This game is awesome.

This game, now on sale for $2 because of the Paradox sale, is worth at least 100. I'm not kidding.

There are games made nowadays that are only half as good as this thing.

This has...political intrigue...diplomacy...trade...real city development...simple yet effective society running...FULL RTS BATTLES and GOOD autoresolve...

This is THE Medieval Strategy game.

I'm sorry Paradox, but Black Sea Studios really should have made at least 5 more of these.

I think I was supremely wrong when I thought isometric RTS's were dead.

This is better than:

Age of Empires 1/2/3
Stronghold 1/Crusader/2/3/Legends/Crusader 2
Crusader Kings II
Europa Universalis III/IV
Medieval Total War 1/2
etc.

I thought Dragon Commander was a great game, this...is utterly perfect.

A+++

100/10

Etc. Etc. Etc.

WHY HASN'T A SEQUEL BEEN MADE???

This is the Skyrim of Medieval RTS's.

Old but solid!

Hire a cleric -> level up the cleric -> cleric got promoted to a pope -> try to excommunicate a country -> got excommunicated by your own cleric.

9/10
