Raise your banner in an age of chivalry and conflict.

Rally to the standard and light up the Dark Ages in this classic Total War game of real-time battles and turn-based strategy.

As a warrior king, expand your area of influence and consolidate power with an artful mix of diplomacy, commerce and war.

Rule wisely across the campaign map to build your empire’s infrastructure, cities and trade routes, then master the art of diplomacy to disarm enemies, empower allies and gain the favour of the Pope. On the battlefield, conduct siege warfare and lead your armies into epic clashes to bring entire kingdoms to their knees.
  • Embark on an empire-building mission of immense scale and ambition as you lead one of 17 factions through five centuries of Total War across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
  • Master sophisticated turn-based strategy as you enforce public order, deploy spies and assassins, make peace with your neighbours… or send your armies after them.
  • Embroil yourself in heady real-time clashes as you command infantry, cavalry and siege engines. Strategic placement of units, cunning use of geography, and exploitation of enemy weaknesses are key to victory.
  • Immerse yourself in the four campaigns of the Kingdoms expansion: colonise or defend in Discovery of the Americas, revolt or quell rebellion in Britannia, wage holy war in Crusades, and fight for Christianity or paganism in the Teutonic Campaign.
  • Revel in a classic Total War game rich in features beloved by fans of the series. Initially released in 2006 and containing all additional content, Medieval II: Total War - Collection is excellent value and runs well on older hardware.
  • Journey through Dark Ages, from the explosive invention of gunpowder and the spread of the plague to the monumental battles of Hastings and Agincourt.
  • Explore a rich medieval world teeming with diverse cultures, from Byzantium, to the Holy Roman Empire, to England, fresh from Norman conquest.

  3. "I've Tried Whipping Them, My LIege, But They're Too Tired to Advance!"
    by BefuddledTrooper, USA - Jan 25th 2016

    Wikipedia has a pretty good description of this game in the entry "Medieval II: Total War." The PC version was released in 2006, so this not a new game, and it has some shortcomings that seem to reflect an early design that was improved in later games. For example, when the game pops up a note on some historical development, like the invention of spectacles or gunpowder, the date is not shown, a rather strange omission for a game that is ostensibly based on real-world history. Medievel II even omits the display of the current year of play, such as "1234 AD," a standard feature of other games in the franchise (no doubt intended to maintain a link to real-world history). There is an option to set a time limit on battles, but the battle Window doesn't display the usual clock, ticking down to zero. Graphics are a bit rough and "cartoonish," compared to "Shogun 2," for example. And so on.

    This game is fun to play, up to a point: the settings, buildings, costumes, weapons and so on are pretty close to their historical equivalents; the battles are (as usual in Total War) fierce and unpredictable. City-building offers many more options in Medieval II than do others in the franchise, with everything from brothels to cathedrals available to build for your citizens, each with different costs and benefits. You may use Merchants to collect valuable trade items, Spies to discover your enemy's capabilities, and Assassins to take out an enemy general or two.

    Balance has always been the "Achilles' heel" of the Total War series, especially in the endgame of a campaign: once the player has developed a solid economy for his Empire, and a big standing army, how do you keep him from simply rolling over every remaining AI opponent, in a Final Conquest that is just too easy to be interesting?—The designers solved this problem in various ways for different games; in "Shogun 2," for example, you get the "Realm Divide" condition, where the remaining AI all turn on you at the same time.

    In Medieval II, this problem is addressed by imposing a strict limit on the number of units of each type that a city can produce: four armored knights, for example, or ten longbowmen. The result of these limits is that, for example, if you made the mistake of recklessly generating lots of knights to eliminate some pesky brigands in your expanding realm, and most of those knights were killed off during the campaign, you're in real trouble when a major foe invades with a whole army full of knights. No matter if you have ten times the cash NOW that you had BACK THEN, you can't get any more knights: you'll just have to make do with whatever other units you can dig up.

    In a game based on real-world history, a limitation like this just doesn't make sense. As a result this reviewer quickly lost interest in Medieval II.

  4. Epic Game
    by hunkster, Australia - Jan 25th 2016

    MTW II has been a long time coming to the Mac and it is the best of the Total War games in my opinion. Epic battles, great strategy, great looking units, this game will keep you entertained for hours.
