Medieval II Total War Full Patch Summary:
Medieval II Total War Full Patch: Medieval II: Total War, the indirect sequel to 2002’s Medieval: Total War and the fourth game in the Total War series from The Creative Assembly, is a game of turn-based strategic rounds and real-time tactically-oriented battles, released in November 2006. The game is set between the years 1080 and 1530. Like the original Medieval: Total War, it focuses on medieval warfare, religion and politics in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.The exclusive review was given to PC Gamer (US), which awarded it an “Editor’s Choice” 90%. In its December 2006 issue, PC Gamer (UK) reviewed the game, hailing it as the “new king of war games”. The graphics and depth of gameplay were highly praised and the game received a score of 94%. IGN gave the game 8.8/10, saying that the game was not as revolutionary as its predecessor, but still introduces some new ideas and builds on others from Rome: Total War, which would still be enough for anybody to buy it. GameSpot also rated the game 8.8/10, noting its “epic, engrossing gameplay” whilst criticising its “beefy system requirements”. The Australian magazine PC PowerPlay gave the game a rarely awarded perfect score of 10/10 due to the sheer amount of content the game contained and the next generation graphics. Hyper’s Anthony Fordham commends the game for its “incredible gameplay, both in battle and on the world map”. However, he criticised it for being “more a refinement of the series than a huge leap forward”.
