    Re: Is it good?

    I don't care for most Steam reviews, because usually people's reasons there for liking games are very different to mine, and I don't care about metacritic. The folks here at TWC have a similar...

    Re: Is it good?

    Thanks for the detailed breakdown. It's pushed me over towards the getting it side. Just gotta wait for a sale ($80 is a bit too expensive for my gaming budget these days).

    Is it good?

    I'm not sure if I'm going to buy it or not. Want to know the consensus of the esteemed folks here if the game is good or not. I've not got much trust for Creative Assembly these days, and the things...

    Re: Expectations. Realistic or otherwise.

    These are all great ideas, but perhaps I'm a bit too jaded by Creative Assembly, because we'll probably not get any of them, or if we do, they'll be implemented poorly.

    Chariots in this period were relegated to command platforms. Cavalry (predominantly horse archers and some lancers) were already the norm for over 300 years at this point. Crossbows were common and...

    seems my method no longer works ever since Medieval 2 was updated on Steam. None of the methods on steam to get mods working will fix it either.
