Ok, so this might not be the prettiest game out there, especially on my horrible computer, but it was entertaining! I found myself playing this for a good 2-3 hr. period. The campaign can be super long, maybe even never-ending if you want to conquer the whole map, but it is extremely fun and well-thought out. Another fun addition to this game is the create battle edition, where you can make your own battles, choose your type of army, and have up to 250 soldiers on each side!
There are some cons however. I found that it takes a bit too long to get into the campaign to the point where your invading other castles and such, there's alot of talking and kissing up you have to do to the people in charge, and apparently you have to do a number of things to show that your a good fighter (I literally just killed 50 people in the arena and I still can't join your army?).
I originally wanted to play this game because I am a fan of the total war series, and this game makes me feel like I'm a soldier in a total war battle.
All in all, this game was up to my expectations, and I think it's worth a month of GameFly.
This has been the best game I've ever played. With the mods that can be added, it never gets old and the replaying is wonderful. With no magic or healing spells, it's' just you and your wits to get to the end of the game and become king of all you survey. Fantastic!
