Quite a good game, I haven't spent a penny on it. You can battle every 5-10 minutes after waiting for your troops to heal. You just have to be patient with building your kingdom.

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.

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.

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

April 1st, 2016: It's April Fool's... and this game is still a joke.

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.

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

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.

Just another money grabbing attempt. everything is geared to make you need more gold and the only way to make enough gold is to buy it. It would be better to just charge for the game and make gold opertunities available and equal for everyone.

A lot of fun.
Really wish there was a detailed tutoiral somewhere. I messed up my initial position because I did not quite get the synergy effects from nearby buildings.

Also caused a lot of accidental floods, etc. but it's still a whole lot of fun.

Played for 12 hours without buying any gold from market.

Obviously that's the way to get the best out of your troops via gear. but made it to level 20 lord with no problems other than building and terrain mistakes. And some tactics errors in battles. but it is a very fun medieval sim.

I like that the classic problems of resource management are factors. flooding, lack of funds, deforestation, really enjpying the challenges, and watching and managing the little towns that are built.

I think it is the right mix between tactics and a little bit of strategy, plus kingdom management. And the battles have the right level of command from the rear feel. A few simple commands, give your tropps the right formations, and trust to equipment and luck.

Even if the troops lose battles, they learn and get better. And armies can fight on without getting wiped out completely, lessons learned, go at it again, with better tactics.

Learning the battles and warfare as I go is a nice progression, building skills, makes it a semi RP game at a very low level.

And the graphics are really good and have a lot of flavor. But not too intensive. Playing from dialup on an old laptop, it's not a problem, unlike many other games on steam.

Great job, developers.

It's a simple, yet fun, way to play a 4X. You don't HAVE to pay, you can progress without gold, but the Starter Pack is a good option. It's not a clicker, the strategy is kinda fun, just wish there were more depth.
