A great deal here for any Total War enthusiasts. For just £6.95 you can get hold of both Medieval 2 Total War and the Kingdoms Expansion from Amazon which is currently the lowest price this combined package has ever been. The next best deal comes in at £9.70 from Play.com whilst over at Game this deal will set you back no less than £14.99.
If, like me, you were a bit disappointed with Empire Total War – don’t get me wrong the sea battles looked cool, but the whole musket thing does get quite repetitive after a while – then you’ll have to agree that MWTW 2 and Kingdoms remain the best editions to the franchise so far.
Medieval 2 plunges you back into the turbulent 11th century just after the battle of Hastings – when war was at its best – with the whole of Europe is up for grabs. You can either wage war as one of the Western European Christian states, which can be a bit annoying as you always need the Pope’s permission to do anything, or else purge the Holy land of the infidels by playing as one of the Muslim states.
The Kingdoms expansion focuses on more localised and specific campaigns. You can fight over the British Isles during the time of William Wallace, the Vikings and Edward the Long shanks. You can conquer Eastern Europe as the Danes or the Teutonic Empire. Fight cannibalistic barbarians with Cortes and his small band of Spanish conquistadors or else take on Saladin as Richard the LionHeart in the crusader campaign. All in all, if you like strategy games, these are the best money can buy (just so long as your PC is up to it).
