THIS GAME IS INSANE!!!
I didn't sleep last night.Went to bed at 5:00.Slept for 4-5 hours and came back to the game!I bought the game because was cheap - 15 euro. Didn't expected much from it.But once installed and applying the patch couldn't serve my family for the day to day routine.
Took the Spanish for a whirl. By lunch time my king had a heir and two good alliances with English & French. Almohads came for an alliance but I refused them after killing their ambasador. In the afternoon I was marching victorious through Cordoba and the people of Valencia felt under the influnce of my bishops.Finishing my last beer I was attacking Granada and killing the all Almohads when they come to beg for my mercy.After I promise to my wife that I will not marry princess Maria with that ugly English prince I secured my next crate of beer since she went to the mall.She kept her word and came with the beer. By that time the princess was too old to marry someone.That's the adventure of life!But then the French king refuse princess Sancha and I was mad. Signed a treaty with the Italians with my greasy fingers (from the pizza slices) and I was attacking Toulouse.They felt under the swords of my Jinetes. Took few hours,2 beers and a pound of chips to march on the streets of Paris.Being bored I assasinate the German heir and they attacked me from Burgundia.My royal knights route'em all in 10 minutes.Then , a period of peace was starting due to the fact that I had to use extensivelly my toilet.When I came back,the English attacked the French.Those guys!They can't stand each other.So I had to choose!English or French since I was allied with both. Well,an assasin paid by me killed one of my daughters married with some heir of England and they blamed Italians for some reasons.So,I took French part but didn't used my troops to conquest Aquitania.
So here I am, ruler over half Europe and whole North Africa.Everybody wants alliances with me and I laugh at them.
Man,this game is INSANE! My wife she's hooked as well since she asked all the time how the princesses are doing and what they wear,to whom they fell in love. Is a good game and well spent 15 euros , what can I say.

And the expansion 'Vikings' is a must. Not only the new campaign is glorious, but they include Aragon, another important Spanish kingdom along with Castile. Without it, Spanish History wouldn't make sense. And many other features, new factions, adjustments, and many new units.

Have I told this game is also one of my favourites? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Medieval is the only other game I play with almost the same intensity as FB. Sometimes it can be too long! I`ve taken on great medieval battles that have lasted me 1 and 2 hours!

Also, there are many principles that are similar to flying and fighting. eg: Attack from high positon, coordinated strikes, judging the enemy strengths etc.... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

p.s Don`t forget Viking add-on, among other things it allows you to PREVIEW yours and enemy forces, if you have a spy before battle.

Picture from

Rome : Total trailer. Roman cohorts engage some barbarian infanrty charge. It`s a must have to see it in motion... like you were watching Braverheart, no kidding !

BTW, if you liked medieval, try out Shogun : TW too, it`s the direct precedessor, with feudal Japan... cool. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I played Praetorians earlier this year (and still a bit now and again). It's a Roman period based RTS game. I can't wait for Rome: Total War either ! However, do you think they moved the release date back a year so that home computing technology will be able to "push" this monster? If so, I hope my system will be able to play it /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
