This game is a must buy for a strategy gamer, the best Total War game to date imo. Ofcourse the game is quite old now, but it still looks quite good. It's pretty much a Rome Total War (award winning game), with better graphics and more features.

This game is so amazing, and I couldn't stop playing it. This is the best Total War in the series in my opinion. The amount of time you can play this game is staggering, considering the amount of time I have already played it. BUY THIS GAME!

If you love the time period and liked Rome Total War then this game is for you. I was not that happy with the game until I learned how to effectively charge knights. In Rome Total War you simply double clicked on what you wanted dead. In Medieval ll you have to keep your formation in line before attacking. This is accomplished be judging the ground between you and the enemy unit you want to decimate. When you are at a run with your knights and they are formed up in line hit the attack order (Double click). Hitting them head on is a must (unless they are pike men then hit them from the back) spearmen don't stand a chance when a formed charge hits them. The diplomacy in this game is involved and steeped in history. The different agents can help you do things like cement alliances with marriage or steal money from other nations with merchants. The pope has impact on your decisions when you are a catholic nation. The crusades are very fun and a good mini quest which will help you groom princes to become better kings. The family tree adds a personnel touch which makes you actually care about your generals. The availability of mods also makes this a great game for instance if you get tired of the same old game then you can download something like Stainless steel mod which overhauls the entire game.

In nomine patri et fili et spiritus sancti, Scotland will rule the world. Alba gu Bráth!!! Brutally great game. I highly recommend it to all TW series fans. Lots of fun with many playalbe nations, nice options to achieve victory and one BIG pain in the ♥♥♥, the Pope. It's nice to watch your country burn for heresy, or to turn into pagans by unkillable witch ... or If you are too bored get excommunicated ... I love to make real mess in medieval times ... and this game is made for that.
