    Medieval Wars:Strategy&Tactics's review

    A realistic medieval strategy game

    • Easy to learn, hard to master
    • Different campaign and troops and scenarios
    • Everything's too static
    • An online asynchronous mode would have been welcomed

    "Deus le volt, God willing"

    From the creators of Strategy and Tactics: WW2 and Cold War, it was obvious that they would get advantage of their already depreciated engine to create new campaigns in other scenarios. Here's why Medieval Wars isn't a surprise at all, and we're sure that there will be many more to come. May we suggest Africa in advance, just for a change?

    Mechanics and rules haven't changed from the previous games, though the AI and overall experience seem a little bit smoother. On the other hand, a few inexplicable design fails (typewriter typography and a strictly icon-based menus) might devalue it all a little bit. In case you don't know, luck isn't involved in battles, it's just a game of numbers wherein troops win or lose according to how many troops you have and how supported are by other units nearby, similar to Risk or Diplomacy, but with upgradeable units.

    In addition to some campaigns, there's also an option to play against the AI or an awesome two players offline hotseat on the same device. Graphics are plain, and we'd love there were some animations, cutscenes or whatsoever, or some non logistic orders such as hostage exchange or treaties.

    Anyway, strategy lovers will love this as much as the previous ones. It's just a matter of taste between medieval chivalrous or XXth century warfare.
