It was an okay strategy game but is nothing compared to the total war games. Strategy games are just hard to make well on a console unfortunately!

This game was fun for about an hour and than became super repetitive. The history segments were enjoyable but other than that this isnt really worth a rent

An ok game, if you don't mind annoying controls.

Good game, though hard to get the hang of. Once you do, it's quite fun. Everything is underpowered, except for the knights armour. That's majorly OP. Eventually, as you progress through either the French or English campains, it gets way to hard and you never get past it, and the limit on squads you can get is stupid. And the many side battles eventually become 1 or 2, and then those get so hard and frustrating, you start to hate the game. Most battles won't even let you have your full army on the battle field. Commanding is also annoying. You select a squad, command them to move somewhere, and instead of retreating, they jump into annother battle. Even if you have the squad on defensive mode. Archers are a big help. They can usually weaken or even route all of the enemy before the battle even starts, if you have enough of them. Calvary is also a pain, almost useless once the enemy reaches your frontline, or if the enemy has either artillery or archers. Use them to lure the enemy towards your arches, and use them as decoys, but I recommend infantry since they have high defence and are great for keeping the enemy occupied while your archers pick off the enemy.
