About This Game

MEDIEVAL: Total War™ - Collection Edition is the compilation of the critically-acclaimed Medieval: Total War and its official expansion pack - Viking Invasion

About MEDIEVAL: Total War™



From the lush grasslands of Western Europe to the arid deserts of Northern Africa, and from the first Crusade to the fall of Constantinople, wage total war in order to expand your influence and secure your reign as you build a dynastic empire to stretch across four centuries.
Recruit and deploy armies, besiege settlements, fight naval battles and employ agents such as emissaries, spies and assassins to aid with diplomacy, offer alliances or bribes, or execute more clandestine actions.
A dramatic period of rebellion, civil war, and the birthing of nations provides the backdrop to your own scheme for ultimate power. Carve a niche for yourself through the crucible of battle and become the statesman and king the era demands.

• Fourteen playable factions from across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
• Up to 10,000 soldiers on-screen deliver incredible, epic battle scenes.
• New siege systems make the most of an era where formidable castles dotted the landscape.
• Valour, Vice and Virtues colour your faction’s characters, effecting how other treat them and the men they lead.

About MEDIEVAL: Total War™ - Viking Invasion



Set upon an extended map of the British Isles and western Scandinavia and taking place from 793 to 1066, Viking Invasion allows the player to assume the role of leader of the Viking faction as they raid, loot and pillage their way to supremacy.
Alternatively the player may take control of early Anglo-Saxon factions, such as Wessex and Mercia, with the aim of repelling the Viking invasion and ultimately controlling the British Isles in its entirety.

• Adds new Anglo-Saxon and Viking factions with additional units alongside the detailed new Campaign map.
• Also includes added functionality for the main game, such as flaming ammunition and three new factions with which to play through the original Grand Campaign.

Oh boy I remember this game! Well it is $2.50 and on sale! What a steal! Alright I just need to learn how to play again an-

It crashed... I remember this too, when Windows Vista/Windows 7 came out... I remember forgetting this game.

But now I remember. It cannot exist in this modern time. It cannot be played. It cannot be enjoyed as it once was.

Turn away. Or at least turn to Medieval 2/Shogun 2/ Rome 1

I love this game, in my opinion one of the GOAT games. However, this version through steam is super prone to crashing, and I have yet to play a campaign for more than 20 minutes without a crash. Sad that such a good game is plagued with these crashes.

updates broke it..
i would like to say "that's a first" but it likely isn't

i gotta admit i was stoked those first 30 hours though... somehow everything worked great and after steam released the updates i was never able to figure out how to get it working again.

naturally i'm hoping that another update will fix the issue but until then i will leave this as a negative review because the product doesn't function at all let alone as intended

I love this game. Its one of my favorites! The only problem is, it doesnt work. I played this all the time when I was a kid and to beable to own it but not play it is heartbreaking. It crashes for me before the menu screen. Im going to have to recommend that you dont buy this game. Maybe it's just my laptop though, who knows?

This is one of the 'classics' and the game that got me into the Total War franchise and definitely holds up as a game despite being a zillion years old.

However, and I implore you to keep this in mind, this game crashes a lot, it is not something new, and seems like something unadressed and will likely will only get worse with the inexirable advance of software and hardware. I strongly recommend buying this game only when it is on sale and worth a few pence for you might feel robbed otherwise.

Coming to the game itself, this is possibly one of the best games when it was made and certainly a landmark in the Total War franchise. It is still a strong game and different enough from other Total Wars to be worth playing because it combines some of that realm and vassal management, giving it that extra realism that was lacking in later games and the battles are in awesome 2-D, graphics aside it all holds up very well.
So I highly recommend this game but also caution you about the minefield of crashes that can occur when playing.

I hate to have to say this.. I honestly do. I have just experience the dreaded End Turn Crash. I was hopeful, I really was, that Steam would have fixed this problem, and that all the reviews were just old. No.. No that is certainly not the case. Nothing has been fixed, it crashes as soon as you end turn, and apparently, there is nothing you can do about it. I hate having to say I just wasted my money..but I did waste my money.

Saw a lone Swiss King hold off a 1000 strong army of mounted Holy Roman Imperial knights.
Killed the Pope with a catapult.
Launched a crusade against Paris.
Had a king terrified of bald, bearded men. Later, his attempted assassin was a bald, bearded man, whom he killed with a cooking spit.
Brought down the last king of Poland under a hail of musket fire.
Desperately needed heirs so forced my last prince to marry his sister.
Assassinated the Khan of the Golden Horde, causing his empire to collapse in its infancy.
As Egypt, bribed the garrison of Rome into betraying the Papacy and handing me the keys to the city.
Had a militia sergeant survive countless battles to become a one-man morale-14 powerhouse that could carve through an enemy spear formation like they were butter. He later became royal chancellor and governor of Ireland, married a princess and died aged 60. To my knowledge, he never did learn to read.

1000/1000 Best total war game to date.

My first TW game, I played it thousands of hours. The portraits, the soundtrack, the wargamish campaign, everything is perfect and the AI is very challenging. I kept a modified copy of the game on my hard drive since Win 7 was released. I can't say how happy I am to see my favorite game on steam. Best day ever !

I recomend this game as it is still very much worth playing even comp[ared to newer titles. It even gets some things right that the sequal Medieval 2 didn't such as cavalry can dismount before a battle, civil war mechanic, ship travel as in not taking a couple of decades to sail accross the mediterranean and the Glorious Achievements campaign victory conditions. Goes with out saying the ai can handle the risk style campaign map better than how it changed from Rome 1 onwards. The patched version we have on Steam now works perfectly on Win 8.1 64bit without issue. Now I don't have to use my old XP system with an old GPU to run this game. I don't play this game out of reasons of nostalgia but because it is a good game in it's own right.
