What do these ratings mean?

Ook. This game is fun do not mistake that. BUT, for me. I for one did not play the first Total War. So...with that being said, this game had a really hard learning curve for me. I have played countless stragedy games and I normaly can sit down and just start playing and getting the hang of it. But this game made me go through the tatorial. There are so man different options you can do during battle. "and yes, its good options" that I was overwelmed. Is tarted by playing a few quick battles as where my goal was to take out the enemy inside a town. You can set all kinds of features, like snow, blizzard, rain, night, day, storming, you name it. And the wheather effects your battle as well as looks amazing. Your archers, you can chose to just shoot normal arrows which have good acurracy or set the arrows ablaze which cause them to lose accuracy but also put fear in your foes. It is truely awesome to be in a night battle and launching hundreds of burning arrows at your enemy who is hiding inside a small town. And did I mention that the buildings inside the game are destructable? Because they are. When a huge catapult launches a bigole rock into the sky anything it hits it destroys.

The only bad thing to me is, I always enjoyed creating my own town and destroying my opponents city. On Medeival II there are no building cities from the ground up. On single player it lets you manage a town and build a city from a maps perspective and stuff, but you do not actually go there and make workers build the building and so on. Online play has no building at all. It automatically sets one team inside a town and one out, "which is more realistic in sense, because no two enemies have there main cities right next to each other" but still, I like to build up and go after the other. And when you start a match, whatever army/units you chose at the selection screen is all you have ingame. So when there dead, its over. And that kinda made the battles cut and paste.

Online, omg. This game has the most elite stragedy players i have ever ran into. THey know exactly what troops to what. I was slaughtered over and over again. I felt pitifull. But loved every moment. Great game great design. Very nice to own.
