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.

So as my first campaign in this game i wanted to start small like in empire total war and went with Scotland thinking it was going to be an easy campaign, So this is what happened.

*Start as Scotland
*conquer rebel cities
*admires how good im doing at the game
*20 turns into the game England starts to siege my capital city
*destroys siege and tries a counter attack
*sends army to york which is an english castle
*tries to siege
*about 2-3 english armies start getting closer to york
*rethink battle plan
*send in the army again
*captures york and no sight of the other armies
*pope tells me to stop attacking or i get excomunicated
*i wait 4 turns to attack again
*i repeat that process about 6 times
*finally captures london and only thing im missing is a city to the west
*denmark appears
*maybe they are friendly
*they attack nottingham
*i stop the siege and kill the army
*maybe i can capture that city to the west
*or you know just kill another denmark army
*i kill the king of denmark about 4 times and fought like 20 armies
*still i dont have that city to the west
*denmark wants a cease fire
*i demand that they give me 7000 florins
*they say they can give me 170
*WELL ♥♥♥♥ YOU DENMARK
*i start killing more armies
*i go to them for a cease fire
*i demand those 7000 florins
*they dont even offer 170 florins YOU ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥S!!!!
*i accept the cease fire
*i go capture that city the west
*pope wants me to cease fire with england
*♥♥♥♥!!!
*i attack quickly before pope tells me to cease fire again
*i capture that city to the west and now officially own the entire uk
*SUCK ON THAT!!! ENGLAND!!!
*england after 210 turns finally wants london back and starts siege
*denmark starts to siege nottingham
*rage quit
*would try to fight for freedom and get punished for it 10/10
this is one of the best total war games i have ever played and enjoy it even more than empire or shogun 2.

- Played as Scotland.
- Became bros with England.
- Conquered Ireland.
- Norway declares war, pope tells not to fight or we get excommunicated.
- My ship and Norways's ship sit next to each other not able to attack.
- See German Papal favor is low, persuade pope to call crusade on them.
- Take multiple German cities.
- Help England conquer france.
- Denmark declares war, pope excommunicates him for attacking me.
- Send crusader army through Germany and into ships in Meditteranean.
- Send ships to Egypt.
- Take most of Egypt.
- Germany gets destroyed.

To this day the Scottish ships just stand next to the Norwegian ships, unable to attack.

My first game:

Play Danemark.
Reform Calmar Union, because Norway and Sweden are just stupid rebels.
Unholy Not-Roman Germanic Empire declare war.
Epic battle at Hambourg, 4/7, I still win.
Counterattack 2 turns later.
Wipe them out.
Start attacking new neighbours randomly.
Meet Russia attacking Poland while I was taking it for myself. <- Realism.
Pope say I'm a heretic, my king reaction: Meh.
Now I'm apparently on Satan's side, I don't need to hold back anymore.
Manage to take France, finifsh Russia. Huge invasion fleet destroyed by England. <- Realism.
Suddenly, Black Plague. Lost 2/3 of my people. Can't have armies anymore.
Suddenly, Mongols, not enough troops in the East, I retreat.
I take Rome and kill the prisonner pope. New one is British. He don't like me. Every other Christian Nation hate me, I'm apparently the Anti-Christ. I got Crusades.
I lost a lot of cities. Rebels everywhere. My kings are assassinated.

Europe is now at open war as some nations decide to keep for themselves the towns, original owner declare war.
Pope excomunicate everyone.
"Christian" Kingdoms wage war against each other.
Mongols laugh and go forward to the west.
Heresy, the whole world is plagued with Heretics. And Inquisitors too.
I manage to hold the Mongols away, but now I feel alone on Scandinavia.
Pope finnaly forgive me... 2 turns before he get killed my mongols.

Whole World speak mongol now. But I'm happy because I'm Christian again.

10/10 would plunge the world into chaos again.
