"A unique game for the series due to the castle and city mechanics. The campaigns are very fun and the units are very complex and unique for the factions"

About This Game

Take command of your army and expand your reign in Medieval II - the fourth installment of the award-winning Total War series of strategy games. Direct massive battles featuring up to 10,000 bloodthirsty troops on epic 3D battlefields, while presiding over some of the greatest Medieval nations of the Western and Middle Eastern world. Spanning the most turbulent era in Western history, your quest for territory and power takes you through Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, and even onto the shores of the New World.
You'll manage your empire with an iron fist, handling everything from building and improving cities to recruiting and training armies. Wield diplomacy to manipulate allies and enemies, outsmart the dreaded Inquisition, and influence the Pope. Lead the fight in the Crusades and bring victory to Islam or Christianity in the Holy War. Rewrite history and conquer the world. This is Total War!
  • Bigger and better real-time battles. Improved combat choreography, larger armies, quicker pace, and spectacular finishing moves make this the most visceral and exciting Total War ever.
  • New epic campaign. The ambitious single player campaign will span three continents and let players sail across to the Americas to confront the Aztecs on their home soil.
  • Greater accessibility. An enhanced user interface and optional shorter campaigns make the Total War experience faster and easier to enjoy than ever before.
  • Over 40 new features. An advanced terrain system, enhanced weather effects, and more will help you divide and conquer.
  • Intense Multiplayer Battles. Wage war against other players in 8-way multiplayer games across the Internet and LAN.

NOTE: Because the Kingdoms expansion uses core game elements from the Medieval II: Total War game, it is required that you use the same method for purchasing Kingdoms as you did in purchasing Medieval II: Total War. If you purchase Medieval II: Total War from Steam, then please use Steam to purchase Kingdoms.

This game has stood the test of time. In an age of decline and ruin in strategy gaming, one's mind wanders back to the glory of the past, and that glory is Medieval 2 Total War. Forget for a moment, the horror of poor optimization, leave behind the decadance of overpriced DLC, and remember the greatness of heroic men battling on fields of Medieval Europe. From the rocky crags of Scotland to the sands of Arabia, this game has it all. You ask for unique factions? Medieval 2 has many. Want a good campaign without horrible AI and bad diplomacy? This game delivers. Do you desire frenetic Free-for-all battles? This game has those too.

Now, take your mind back to the present. Total War is not what it once was. Mourn for our dying franchise, for there was greatness once. There once was a light in the civilized world, and this was it, this was our finest hour.

11/10. Master of Total War and High Emperor of Creative Assembly.

All true stories
====================================================
Sent a 17 year old English kid on a Crusade to Cairo with a peasant army, he was actually successful and gained the title "Toby the Crusader" but it took him 37 years to get back to Britian.

11/10 would waste youth and slaughter millions in the name of god again.
====================================================
I took over Bruges and lots of French women started loitering around it for no reason, they ended up blocking my troops.

11/10 would lose castle to French women again.
====================================================
King suddenly died 'peacefully' and the next in line for the throne was stuck behind enemy lines in France, he was King of England for a whole ten minutes.

12/10 would instantly lose throne again.
====================================================
Tryed to build the most powerful army in Total War history but the general rebelled and fled the country with all my troops.

11/10 would have my best men desert again.
