Having owned and thoroughly enjoyed the first 'Medieval Total War' my expectations were quite high for this edition. Some reviews had also made me a little worried about the progression in game play and concept, but this was all dispelled upon my first play. Rather than armies simply being moved from region to region, mountains and lakes have to be negotiated as armies shape their way through the terrain. These paths can also be used as important strategic strongholds, or ambush locations for other unsuspecting passing armies. The first edition lacked terrain on the main campaign map and this is perhaps the biggest change when first playing the game.

The main beauty of Total War II is how detailed both parts of the game are. For those who have not played the game, the game is broadly divided into two sections - firstly a map style campaign, similar to Civilization or the board game Risk and secondly individual battle scenarios. The game can therefore be played as both a strategy game and/or a battle one. Battles can be resolved automatically or commanded personally depending on how long or short you want the game to be.

In terms of playing time, the game does require a large amount of attention if you want to succeed as a ruler. Turns cannot simply be skipped in order to save money or for a building to be finished, as otherwise other `factions' will leave you in their wake. With experience and patience a huge European Empire can be under your grasp, but just when you think you have the game cracked, new and more powerful factions appear from the east, natural disasters strike cities, the plague sweeps through Europe and then America is discovered. Unlike many strategy games that become tedious and repetitive over time, these events help keep the game interesting.

Medieval II is the successor to 'Rome' and the original 'Medieval: Total War', combining the best of the two games while adding a lot of great new features to the gameplay.

It puts you in command as a Medieval King, Sultan or Emperor, where you must lead your armies to victory over Europe and Asia, while building and maintaining a sprawling empire. The game is essentially split in two, allowing you to command huge armies in real-time battles in one section, and a turn based empire-builder in another.

The graphics are truly stunning, and the game is easily the best looking RTS on the market. The battle animations are also a wonderful new addition, allowing you to see your soldiers pull off some nifty sword work on the battlefield. The artillery and cannon loading sequences are also pretty good. It's the little details like these that make the game worth buying.

The game itself is packed full of features. You have the ability to play a 'Grand Campaign' which puts you in control of a certain Medieval faction over the course of 450 years of warfare. The 'Kingdoms' expansion allows you to play through several historical scenarios such as the Spanish conquest of the Americas, the Crusades, the Teutonic Wars and the 13th century conquests in Britain. Each scenario allows you to play as various new factions, be it Ireland, Lithuania or the Aztecs etc.

You can also try your hand at winning a historical battle such as Hastings, Pavia, Otumba or Acre. This puts you in command as various historical personages such as Richard the Lionheart, William the Conqueror or Hernan Cortes. You can even design your own custom battles!

With so much features, it will take months of gameplay to go through it all.

I must say right now, before I go on, one minor detail: my computer isn't fast enough to play the actual battles, which is arguably the most important part of the game- my 1.8 GHz Intel computer can only play the campaign map, and that is all I can review at the moment.
Nevertheless, the campaign map is really quite entertaining. The cutscenes, oddly, play flawlessly on my computer, and they truly are amazing. There have been no budget cuts when it comes to voice acting, or synchronising the animations on screen with the sounds that you hear. And the game itself is far more tactical; factions won't enter war with you quite so lightly as they used to (i.e. in Rome Total War) and the options open to you have tripled in size.

To really enjoy the game, I would recommend a computer with at least 2GB RAM and 2.2GHz processor. Even on the lowest graphical settings, my 0.98 RAM computer cannot cope with the battles. If you can fulfil this game's requirements, however, then this is a companion that your computer quite simply should not be without.

I won't say anything about gameplay as the total war series is well known and if you have alread liked other editions of this series you will probably like this too.

I want to clarify 2 or 3 things that baffled me before buying this product so that it will be easier for the rest.

This edition (the gold edition) is already patched. this means that it is read updated and bugfixed so you dont have to look for updates from the official site or anything.

It includes 2 dvds; the first has the main game and the americas expansion on and the second the rest three expansions. When you install the game there is a small time gap after the end of the installation of each expansion and beginning of the next. (a prompt window pops up and asks you to press next) so while installing if you notice some inactivity dont worry it is probably because of that, it happens even to fast PCs.

It works with windows 7. I am playing the game in win 7 x64. No problem at all.

You will need at least directX 9. But you can find it on the first dvd of the game.
