About This Game

Medieval II: Total War Kingdoms is the official expansion to last year's award-winning Medieval II: Total War, presenting players with all-new territories to explore, troops to command, and enemies to conquer.
Kingdoms is the most content-rich expansion ever produced for a Total War game, with four new entire campaigns centered on expanded maps of the British Isles, Teutonic Northern Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas. In Medieval II, you were only given a tantalizing glimpse of South America, but in Kingdoms, vast tracts of land in both North and South America have been opened up for you to conquer. All-new factions from the New World are also now fully playable, including the Aztecs, Apaches, and Mayans.
Along with the new maps in the Britannia, Teutonic, Crusades, and New World Campaigns, there are 13 new factions to play, over 110 units to control, and 50 building types, adding up to 80 hours of new gameplay. Kingdoms also offers new multiplayer maps and hotseat multiplayer, a first for the Total War series, allowing you to play one-versus-one campaign games on the same computer.
  • Four new campaigns - Britannia, Teutonic, Crusades, and New World
  • 10 new units
  • 13 new factions
  • 9 new agents
  • 50 new buildings

Awesome game!! Not only will you spend hours on the vanilla game, but there's also loads of mods. If you're a Lord of the Rings fan, you're in luck. There's also mods that add to the vanilla game such as more settlements and units. This game is fantastic. I've only played about 60 hours, but I'd recommend this to anyone who likes strategy games. I use to play Civilization 5 all the time, but since I've bought this, Civilization 5 looks so borring now XD.

This is second to best TW game in my opinion, tied with Shogun 2: total war. IT IS A GREAT GAME. Four game modes. Britanna: who will rule the isles of Britian? The English, Welsh, Scots, Irish, or Vikings? You chose! Cursades: What will shine atop Jerusalem? The Cresent or Cross? Pick a side and ensure your religon wins this bloddy battle over the middle east. Tutanic: (Mispelled) Side with the Catholic Knights, and ensure that the Pagans of East Europe met only death, or Side with the Pagans, and make sure your people earn their freedom! Americas: (My favorite) Play as new Spain and conquer the Americas (What I did.) or dirve out the starngers from your homeland!

One of the best Total War entries to date. Be sure to check the Third Age mod for an epic campaign in Tolkien's Middle Earth.

I have fought many wars against the white devils. They come to our land and think they can simply take what they want because they have fire sticks and shiny metal armor. My people lived a happy life full of peace and prosperity before the white man came. Some of the white men told us that they were here only to explore and make peace with my people. Because we are a loving people we believed them and showed them our villages and shared with them our food and drink. That night the white men killed our warriors in their sleep and ♥♥♥♥♥ our buildings. They burned our women as well, it was a terrible sight. I saw the whole thing when I was only a child, and that day I swore I would have my revenge on the whites. I trained for many years and finally managed to become the chief of my people, I made many alliances with surrounding tribes and we fought a mighty war against the white devils. At first things went well, we won many initial battles and took many heads as trophies, the white men feared us, they thought us savages, when truly it was they who were the savages, they who came to our lands to destroy us. Suddenly a wind of change started, and many more white men arrived, more men and more fire sticks, they drove us back and took our coastal cities, burning every woman they came across, then all of my allies broke alliance with me, allied with the whites, and every city I had was surrounded by at least 3 spies burning all my buildings every turn until I ran out of money. That's the story of how I fought the good fight and in the end was suppressed by the man. 10/10, would die to the white devil again.

I've put over a thousand hours into this game due to the quality of the base game and truly superb mods made by the community. This game has two modes essentially, strategic where the player controls territory and moves armies on a map of Europe and Tactical, where you fight battles in 3D. Anyone who played Rom TW knows how this plays out excellently and creates the best experience in the genre of strategy games. The game can be unforgiving due to the complexity of the economy in this game on the main strategic map. Anyone who loves Tolkien, the Middle Ages, or military history will love this game because it truly immerses the player into this world.

167 hours of my life......... I marched upon the isles of Britinia with the armies of Ireland, I established a Rich and powerful Appache Empire in the Americas, I cleasned the heritics and infidels of Lithuania with my fellow Deutsche knights, and finally I preserved and re-expanded the Empire of Eastern Rome.... all of which is now for nothing because of the latest update. It doesn't even count the hours I have spent in this anymore, and crashes every time I try lauching it. Furthermore, the update was over 10 gigabites...... for something which is EIGHT years old.

If they could fix these things, I would most defintly recommend this, as the DLC itself is amazing.

Good addon but with a few flaws that are far overshadowed by the many things done very well.

It's hard to review this expansion as 1 big addon because it adds 4 extra separate campaigns so I will review each campaign individually.

First off, the Americas campaign:
The playable factions of the Americas campaign consists of Apachean Tribes • The Aztec Empire • Chichimec Tribes • The Mayans • New Spain • The Tarascans • The Tlaxcalans and the unplayable factions (usable in custom battles, not campaign) are • England • New France.
And now for the fun factor (the most important part,) the Americas campaign is a very fun one (and it takes a lot for me to say that -- normally i'm not a fan of the campaigns of the Total War series; I mostly do custom battles) also as far as new units go there are a lot of unique units among the assorted factions (unlike the base game *cough* the italian factions *cough*) so each faction feels unique.

My rating of the Americas campaign would be an 8 out of 10.

Now the Brittania (British Isles) campaign:
not a lot to say about this one the playable factions are England • Ireland • Norway • Scotland • Wales. the unplayable faction is (again, custom battles only) the Baron's Alliance.
Now the fun factor. Meh, it's an ok campaign but not great and the factions seem like CA just copy/pasted Scotland's (early period) unit roster into most of the factions (- England -- they got their own from the base game).

The rating I would give this campaign is a 6 out of 10. It's a fun campaign but it is easily forgotten and the factions are mostly the same unit-wise.

Now the Teutonic campaign:
The playable factions are Denmark • The Holy Roman Empire • Lithuania • Novgorod • Poland • The Teutonic Order, and the unplayable factions (again they can be used in custom battles) are Mongols • Norway.
The fun factor -- this is a good campaign as the factions are fairly unique (no carbon copies like in the Brittania campaign) as far as units go and the campaign map is a good size (again other then the brittania campaign.)
I would rate this one a 7 out of 10 -- better then the Brittania campaign but not as good as the Americas campaign.

Now the Crusades campaign:
The playable factions are Principality of Antioch • The Byzantine Empire • Egypt • Kingdom of Jerusalem • The Turks, and the unplayable factions (again they are playable in custom battles) are Mongols • Venice.
Fun factor -- this campaign is also good, except the factions are not quite as unique. The Byzantine Empire is basically The Byzantine Empire of the base campaign (other then the Greek firethrower, my favorite unit in the game.) The same is true for Egypt and the Turks. The Principality of Antioch and the Kingdom of Jerusalem are both very unique (mostly all unique units.)
I would rate this one a 7 out of 10. It's better then the Brittania campaign, about equal to the Teutonic campaign but not as good as the Americas campaign.

The overall rating I would give the full expansion is an 8 out of 10. All of the campaigns included are fun to play.

I would reccomend this to anyone who likes the base game.

Too much fun. I feel like a real king playing this game. Although there are some downsides like having a unit cap. I know you may like it but i dont. I want HUGE battles but that would probably crash my computer. It would be fun though. Im also sad that there is no naval battles :(
