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

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.

Its pretty good now go and buy it!

Pros :
-Great real time battles with thousands of soldiers mixed with great turn based empire management
-Fights look cool to watch
-Mods! (If you like Lord of the Rings I recomend Third Age Total War)
-A great variety of medieval civilizations to choose from
-Seige battles!

Cons:
-Graphics are a bit out dated but that does not really matter
-A bit buggy at times (Still better than Rome 2)

Overall I would rate this game at a 9.5/10
This game is a must own for any rts fan and in my opinion the best in the Total War series!

Total War is a great game for those who like to think their way out of porblems. (Though endless amounts of calvary get the trick done just as well) The hardest part about this game is not the stratigic battles, but rather managing your kingdoms. Good game, and would totally buy it again.

I only got this DLC for the mods such as Westeros Total War and A Game of Thrones or The Lord of the Rings mod. However, the Teutonic and Crusader campaigns are actually ok

Pre-Release Review
I am having the same issue others apparently have. The game just stopped showing up in my library. I tried to download it from visiting this page and it acts like it downloaded, but says 0MB/0MB so it didn't download anything and it says executable not found. What is the solution?

The shining paragon of the Total War franchise. Medieval II is one of those timeless games that you have spent and will spend countless number of hours on. Coupled with one of the best modding communities for any game, this is a must-buy for anyone in the rts sphere of gaming.

Kingdoms adds four wonderful, regional campaigns which create a fully enjoyable expansion, worth hours of gameplay.

Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms is a strategy game from Creative Assembly. Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms is an expansion pack to the previous game Medieval II: Total War.

This expansion adds about four new standalone campaign that focus on their own theater. There is the American campaign where you can play as the Spanish and try to conquer the new world or play as the native tribes such as the Aztecs and drive the Spanish invader back to the sea where they came from. There is also the Crusader campaign where you can play as the Crusader States or as Saladin. The rest are the England campaign and the Teutonic campaign. Each of these standalone campaign offer unique Total War experience as they are very focused on each campaign.

So overall, Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms is a good expansion pack. The campaign are more focused and make it more interesting. I recommend this.

Rating 8/10

Good to play, especially after you've played Rome Total War. This game is even better with mods. It is based upon Turn Based Strategy and Real Time Strategy. I will warn you though, the turn time is different from Rome Total War. In Rome Total War 1 turn was 6 months. On this game 1 turn is 2 years. I suggest you change it. There are guides on how to do that. It will give you more time to play the game and you won't be rushed with only 200 turns.

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.

The first thing you do when you have downloaded this baby is install the Stainless Steel mod.
But the original game was awesome back when I had played it for the first time. Back when CA made good games..

THE pinnacle of Total War "genre". It is by far the most well-done and entertaining game in the whole series, with nothing that came after it coming even close to its glory.

While of course it has its cons, such as lack of multi-core support, on recent rigs it handles battles up to ten thousand men with no problem.

However, what is the best about this title, is the modding community. You will find mods for everything, even vaguely medieval related: Call of Warhammer (Warhammer Fantasy), Third Age Total War (Lord of the Rings), Stainless Steel (Medieval Europe, basically M2TW how it should've been), Westeros Total War (Game of Thrones) and many others.

If you are a medieval warfare fan, this is a must-buy.


But, as I want to be fair to everyone who might be willing to buy this game, let me list the greatest cons game has:

- Without mods, it's "just" good.
- Steam Version contains a bugged, idiotic "launcher", that makes launching mods difficult
- AI is not the brightest at times
- Steam overlay tends to crash battles
- City battles are seriously lacklustre ( they are made enjoyable only recently in Rome 2 Total War )
- Crossbowmen will not fire from walls
- Without mods, there are a few quirks the game has (cavalry charge lacking "mass", AI stupider than it has to be, etc)



OVERALL, in my humble opinion, this is _THE_ grand strategy/battle game of choice. Don't be fooled by my hour count on steam, I have owned the game since its launch, and have clocked over two thousand hours in this... which, I think, shows just how good the game is.
