very fun

i only played the demo but i still found a lot a lot of fun. couldn't stop playing the demo. there's so many things to do, like dress up your player with armor and weapons. horses(of corse) special abilities like charge or a special swing with a sword ect. starting a battle anyway anytime ending it anyway anytime. but to find the joy and awesomeness you need a lot of patience. and for those who don't like waiting this might not be the game for you. i don't have a lot of patience, but some how the game made me forget about the waiting with the battles and being able to sit back and just watch a battle from afar. the other thing that attracted me was i can sign my own missions. At the base your not assigned missions your offered invites to war. then in the war you make your onw missions up, for example: i see one of my enemy groups rushing my allies so i go find a group of horses, then race back at the HQ and charge though all the enemies then some way kill all of them. i call that mission RESCUE

Challenging, fun, accurate, and exasperating!

IMHO: This is one of my 3 favorite games of all time. It joins "Civilization: Revolution" and the original "Medal of Honor" as an acceptable (actually, preferred!) waste of time. The format is can be English or French and participate in some of the greatest campaigns of this illustrious conflict.
The graphics, though not realistic, are fun and the custumes are gorgeous! The actual game play (the guts of the gaming process) are simple. The risk/reward ratio is attainable but not easily so.
The only complaints: take the "fantasy" out of the game. Out of the weapons/armor, the characters, and the combat. Keep it real; the Hundred Years War is fascinating material and doesn't need the fluff.
Summation: I wish GF would offer this game for sale...I don't want to return it! Thanks.

Character graphics.
Character control and troop movement.
Battlefield effects and identification.
Attack and control selection.
Battlefield game play in general.

Magic, Mongol Horse Bowman and Spartan Phalanx then a story line of the French and English hundred years war? Pick a game story, historical or make believe!

A Skill Point system that forces you to spend equally on all attributes?

Weapons and armor are maybe a 2% factor versus Level Up?

The character interactions are pointless, historically speculative and boring.

Inventory and Equipment lists that can't be altered?

Pages and pages of Stories, People, gossip, history and blah ba efin blah...WHO CARES!
All of these are a stupid waist of game time and memory that could have gone to map size.

But, I still gave it a "7" because the game play did kick ars.

end of line
