Genialna gra z cyklu strategii "Total War" grałem w poprzednie części "Total War-a" więc dla mnie ta część nie powinna być niczym fantastycznym lecz muszę przyznać trochę ją "faworyzuje" :). Więc nie ważna jaka by była i tak dam dobrą ocenę :P.
No i przechodzimy do plusów i minusów :(.
+Nowe wojska
+Hexy (mi się podobają nie muszą wszystkim)
I minusy, ehh których jest niestety dużo :/
-Mało budynków
-Mimo że hexy lubie to w tej grze akurat mnie ekhem wkurwiają
-Jebana szarża wojsk
-Mało urozmaicona
-Ciągnie się i ciągnie (czyli mam na myśli to że po przejęciu kolejnego "sektoru" skupia się to tylko na tym że budujemy kolejny zamek a w około niego kolejne te same budowle i tak ciągle dopuki nie przejmiemy całej mapy)
Może moja opinia jest za bardzo krytyczna dla tej gry bo w sumie to jest za darmo to nie będziemy tu oczekiwać fabuły grafiki i różnorodności na miare Wiedźmina 3 , w którego też grałem polecam 9/10 ale wracając do tematu to chociaż mogli by się trochę bardziej postarać, tak czy owak gre polecam. Dziękuję do widzenia :).

This is actually a really lovely game. I like the base management - and the combat is actually the real total war mechanics - once you get past the suprise that you can't move you guys around yourself. I'm enjoying this a lot!

Good game so far as I've played. Combines strategic resource production and simple battle tactics for a fun game you can pick up and leave be as time permits. There are (as always) some elements where those willing to spend money will be sligtly ahead of the rest that are wont, but not so much as to make the game hard or frustrating to play.

DO NOT expect this game to be like a normal Total War game. But it's not suppose to be. Normal Total War games require pretty in-depth planning and careful execution, I can average 30-45 minutes per turn not to mention the 45min+ battles. This takes a simplified approach to the game, like I said above it allows you to pick it up play for 5 minutes and leave it be. Its not bad by any means, just don't expect a normal Total War game.

All in all I'd say 8/10 and considering it's free, I would highly recomend it.

For a free game it's not too bad. I can gather my resources and then leave for work and the game keeps going and that fits my lifestyle. Unfortunately, this game crashes all the time, usually during a battle.
Some of the features are poorly designed and you end up running out of things to do. It's like a sleepy Kingdome for the most part. I'll still play it, but it's not my favorite game.

It's a good game to pass the time but it should not be associated with the Total War franchise.

For a free to play game its not too bad, the real downside of it is how slow progression is without using its pay to play features, and as pointed out you dont have to pay to play, but as an example I have been playing for over 6 days now, and still have not been able to gain enough stone/silver to upgrade the castle to its second level.

Perhaps reading some build guides might have helped, but it is just such a slow moving game and because of that there is very little enjoyment when you consider you can buy some excellent games in the total war series for around £5/$7

overall opinion decent freebie but far to slow moving, id recommend other enjoyable games like Grepolis which although very time consuming offer far more involvement and enjoyment but that was ruined too by premium focus and pay to win features which ruined the original Grepo.1 builds.

This game is fine if you just want to log into it once or twice a day for a few mins to collect your resources, but as far as entertaining its just too slow going, unless once your kingdom is capable of producing the resource counts on a faster scale at higher levels it wont hold anybodys attention for the long haul. in my opinion.

As a long time fan of the Total War series & having been a sucker for spending a fortune on Stronghold Kingdoms this seemed like the ideal middle ground to have a look at, how wrong could I be?

Built a farm > 8s
Collect Wheat > 8hrs
Or Pay gold to complete instantly.


The end.

This game should've come out on April Fool's because this is a Complete Joke. This is my rant.

I've played for half and hour and I already feel like I never want to touch this again. The tutorial itself teaches you how to spend money.

Basically the game is designed around making the building as tedious as possible to entice the player to spend real money to skip absurd waiting times. I thought the '8 hours to collect wheat' must have been an exagguration but it's not. It's literally wait 8 hours or spend money.

The game isn't designed to be fun, it's designed to be tedious unless you spend money.

The battles are incredibly shallow. Three lanes of units move towards eachother without your control and you 'tap' them to 'charge' when prompted. You can tell archers to shoot (through a very cumbersome system that is clearly designed for your phone), and 'taunt' which is really the only way you can move between 'lanes'. It's utterly woeful.

Not to mention you can again, pay real money to buy better units and buff said units. You also need to spend money to heal units. And spend money to avoid more ridiculous waiting times to build more units.

Even on mobile phone, this game seems terrible. It's basically an excercise in tedium unless you pay money. They didn't want to make the game fun, rather they tried to make it as dull as possible unless you cough up money.

Avoid like the plague. This is an abomination of a game. Sega and Creative Assembly should be ashamed of themselves.

one word: Sh*t. 24 Minutes on this game was way too much for me. It is nothing like Total war and is made for the super casual mobile market. Oh yeah and there are micro stransactions! I love that sh*t

It was fun in the beggining.
You start with a small amount of gold.
Then after awhile everything started taking very long, and you start using your gold.
Then combat became to hard and you don't have any gold left.
It's a phone game not made for pc and it's close to impossible to have fun without paying microtransactions.
This is a disgrace to the Total War franchise and I woulnd't recomend it to anyone.
It's a "pay to win" game as you can get everything by simply paying.

I have to admit, for the time being CA seems to be focused on casual enjoyment.

You'd think this was your total war game in small scale, instead you have a game that teaches your mom how to terraform.

This game isn't ''Bad'', It's fine if you're sitting in a waiting room with a tablet PC.

For a PC game, though, i have to say collecting wheat and watching timers count down is not a sufficient total war experience. I can't recommend playing this for any serious entertainment quality.

Edit: Also, all customization and speedups, do, as expected, cost a currency that you must buy with real money. (Or farm in-game for a geological amount of time)

P.S. When your English christian soldiers win they sometimes shout ''Praise be to the gods''
They all use the recycled Roman/Barbarian voices from Rome 2, and it's random, so Picts can have posh roman voices.

P.S.S. The militia spear unit is literally peasants with pitchforks, you can slay mailed knights with them, you can also charge and kill half a unit with archers if you get the perfect timing.

This is terrible. I have never written a review for anything on steam before, but if somehow this helps keep 1 person from wasting their time it will have been worthwhile.

And I seriously tried to appreciate this game.
