Outlining perhaps the most influential time in European history, the game takes the player through a historically accurate experience to defeat enemy nations. Taking on the role of a medieval monarch, the player leads battles, controls national economy, suppresses rebellions, plans war strategy, and holds complete dominion over their lands. With thousands of trait-developed soldiers and diplomats, the player can face anything from assassination attempts to civil war in this incredible story of Europe over 900 years ago.

The Best Total War Game
5 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Some may wonder why I say this, but graphics are not everything. OK, so Mediaeval Total War and the expansion, and indeed its predecessors, Shogun and the Mongol Invasion, had poor graphics, but that isn't what makes a great game.

You can look at its successors and think 'Wow, great graphics, great campaign map and great gameplay'. I say, 'Yes it has great graphics', but that isn't what makes a great game, as I said before.

Mediaeval Total War and Viking Invasion makes you feel like a general, being able to move troops around on a Risk style map. Did you ever notice how Rome has so many siege battles? How unrealistic! Mediaeval has more battles out in the open than sieges, which makes the game more interesting, more engrossing and more realistic.

Also, the AI is better than Rome and its expansions and Mediaeval II and its expansion. In Rome the AI just charges, in Mediaeval II knights will charge at spikes and get themselves impaled. This is not all that realistic, unless you are fighting barbarians in Rome or the French at Agincourt in Mediaeval II. In the original Mediaeval the AI thinks, and can put up a pretty good challenge on Medium, Hard or Very Hard difficulty.

Mediaeval is a more challenging game, and I rate it, with its expansion, as the best turn-based strategy and real-time tactics game ever made on the PC. Overall, I also think it is the best game on PC ever, and it doesn't even have good graphics. If you have a low-spec machine, or just like strategy games you won't be disappointed if you buy this. This is the best game ever made! I would recommend it to anyone.
