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
  • 60+ new territories across four new maps
  • 15 new multiplayer maps and scenarios
  • All-new 1v1 hotseat multiplayer campaign mode

If I am correct this is, or was atleast one of the first games I ever got on steam. It only needs a potato to run, and in my opinion is the best total war game I've ever played. The DLC's are all expansive, and consume just as much time as the base game. Good game.

If only they just built and updated the concept of this game instead of shifting the Total War games that they have in recent years to different styles like Attila Total War, etc. This is by far the best Total War game and includes alot of factors that the newer ones simply drowned out.

WARNING: ABOUT THE ISSUE WHERE THE GAME VANISHED FROM YOUR LIBRARY

The game is not gone, they simply merged it with Medieval II. To find it follow these steps:

-Install Medieval II
-Go to steam game library
-Right click on Medieval II
-Below the "Play Game" option there should be 4 new options about playing the 4 campaigns of Kingdoms.

Have fun! :)

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.

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.

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

Amazing game to play, especially after you've played Rome Total War. This game is even better with mods such as Stainless Steel. It is based upon Turn Based Strategy in the campaign map and Real Time in the battle map. I will warn you though, the turn time is different from Rome Total War. In Rome Total War, 1 turn was 6 months, while on this game, 1 turn is 2 years. I recommend you change it. There are guides on how to do that. It will give you more time to play, but scripted events such as the discovery of gun powder and the Timurid / Mongol invasion will take longer to get to, unfortunately.

A great expansion to an already great game. Highly recommended just for the mods alone, such as Third Age (a LoTR mod), Stainless Steel, and Broken Cresent. The expansions campagins are also really good, much more focused and I'd say faster paced than the originals Grand Campaign.

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.

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!
