This review is from: Medieval II: Total War - Gold Edition [Download] (Software Download)
If you enjoyed Sid Meir's Civilization, you are going to love this game. I was up into the wee hours of the morning playing the very first Civilization game 20 years ago so the micro-management type of SG is a hit with me. However, I am also a big fan of history. This game gives me all of it!

Sure, you get the feuding and war crafting of the middle ages but you also get the war of assassins and spies, you get the political intrigue, the war between merchants and trade, the war of religion and the war to discover all of the new technology.

Wrap all of that into an overall turn based strategy game and you have a recipe for just playing 1 more turn when you have to go to work or school in a few more hours. You could lose a girlfriend or a wife or your entire social life! This game is well made and very addicting.

The graphics are amazing. Watching a dozen trebuchets pound a castle with flaming projectiles is something else. The same goes for a few hundred flaming arrows on a night assault. Watching charging knights plow into the ranks of peasant militia is hysterical.

One con would be that there isn't much detail for naval warfare. You can have navies and block ports and transport any land units but having a battle on the seas is handled by AI and is, therefore, a numbers game. It still adds to the game but not as much as it could. Still, not a big deal to me. The game is so deep that I don't have time to think about it really.

The only other drawback is that I don't have more time to spend playing it. This game is phenomenal.
