5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, addictive game let down only by occasionally awful AI, 18 May 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Medieval II: Total War - Gold Edition (PC DVD) (Video Game)
Looking at the screenshots for this I knew it was going to be good, even though my interests tend to lie in the earlier medieval period covered in Medieval I...The graphics are amazing, the game has probably unlimited replays as you have a fair few factions to begin with and in addition to these you unlock any you defeat in the campaign, with the exception of certain factions such as the Mongols which you can never play in a campaign unfortunately (there is probably a mod for this somewhere).

I stray away from map-based grand strategy games myself but the turn based map stuff in this is good fun, and a welcome lull in action, and is also great to look at (a lot more interesting than the maps in Medieval I and Shogun). My only criticism of the map gameplay is widely noticed pathfinding issues, though I believe there is a patch/mod for this as well...

You may have problems with lagging but after closing most programs I found no problem with the main game...Kingdoms, however, generally lags no matter what I alter or close, which is a shame, as otherwise it is a brilliant, huge expansion...Britannia seems somewhat similar to the main game but the other three campaigns in Kingdoms - Americas, Teutonic and Crusades - are all excellent and make it worth buying this excellent value for money gold edition.

In terms of history it all seems pretty accurate and realistic too...all in all a classic game that follows on from the equally brilliant Rome total war really well...
