Its major strength is a firm footing in factual events of the past with actual footage from the History Channel. Perfect for gamers looking for an RPG strategy game with more historical bite, 8.2/10. (Now Gamer)

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job... 21 Nov 2010
By Griever
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
One person commented that they were let down because this is not an 'Age of Empires' type of game. It's not fair to rate this game one star for that reason. You control a good number of units (that is- all the units on the map- of the levels I have completed so far) and with those units, using simple controls, you out fight and out smart your enemy. Simple. You don't build civilizations or bases- you fight. What I thought was good is that you can form your own army (choosing what type of units to have, how many, and what equipment they will carry) paying for it all by 'winning victories' but you will have to grind for it as this has an RPG element to it, though I think for a game set during the 'Hundred Years War' a little grinding adds depth. Your army also gains experience from fighting.
Graphics aren't fantastic but fair. Menus and options feel basic but can't complain either. Like I said, does the job but while I enjoy it I wouldn't have paid full price for it. Bargain if you see it cheap.

It's not Civilization, it's not Age of Empires and it's not Command and Conquer- think Braveheart but without Mel Gibson winning every single battle. If you're not sure watch 'TIME COMMANDERS'. It's that but on console.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strategy buffs only 4 Mar 2011
By tenpole
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
If your expecting a "Total War" type game for the PS3 then forget it. This game is not as technical nor graphically beautiful like the total war series. Most of the time you will be zoomed out so you will not see great unit detail. As a strategy game it is ok but it looks more like a game from the PS1 era, the way the units move is reminiscent of battle games like Warhammer shadow of the horned rat. It is necessary to grin the sub missions continually to improve your units and gain cash. This does become a chore. There are easily obtainable trophies for this game so as well as strategy buffs this will be one for trophy hunters.
In game you will find the action is less from fluid like the total war games as you must constantly micro manage each unit to deal with the changing situations. All commands are issued on pause mode.
Some missions you can breeze through but others may take several attempts with grinding in between to improve your units.
The cut video scenes on starting each scenario of compaign mode are dull and grainy. Well done if you manage to watch them all before pressing the skip button.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 29 Jan 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the best strategy game on PS3, end of. Its brilliant. Its not Age of Empires, not building this and creating that, just you have x amount of soldiers and thats it, its very tactical, and excellently done. Graphically its no Crysis 2 but the gameplay more than makes up for it. Buy this if you like Total War.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Reasonable Game but a little Repetitive? 29 Oct 2010
By Bruce TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I do like Strategy games and really enjoyed things like Kessen? This one has a tie-in with the History Channel, but this seems to be just a Marketing/Commercial ploy?

So there are video cut-scenes from the TV channel - but they are murky and really "generic" - they could be about anything and don't really add to the gameplay.

I found the initial gameplay confusing and it is strange that you are controlling a very small force, while the majority just get on with it?

Eventually you get into controlling more troops - but often I found that unless you do exactly what was specified you lose badly and there is little flexibility?

It may be that as you progress ,you get more of this, but I found the gameplay so repetitive at this point that I could not be motivated to play more.

I think the game is good-loking and the ability to zoom in and out is very good - you can go from a map like overview to individuals very quickly.

It's just a shame that the gameplay does not draw you into this more and there are other games which are more fun - this is a competitive area now. I may go back to this and will revise my review if I feel it's needed - but for now, there are other games calling to me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Strategy game. 24 Mar 2014

PC style strategy war game. Kind of like Age of Empires. Play 16 missions as either England or France recruit units and use them in battle to gain experience. Some tough mission though.

Quite good and engaging obviously there are tweaks that could be implemented around navigating around the battlefield in play but I think it was a worthwhile game and look forward to the next instalment
