Ratings and Reviews
Please give this a chance. You won’t regret it.
After waiting for years to get to play this game after it’s release, Ferel Interactive finally answers my prayers and delivers one of the greatest strategy games of all time. I did keep in mind of the warnings that the other reviewers gave regarding the dithering pace of the download time and the constant crashes that plagued the game. I want to assure all of you that the software update has not only fixed the major crash issues (I did experience only one crash after purchasing it, but nothing major), but online multiplayer has been included. If your mac has the latest update included (either Yosemite or El Capitan), it should only take between 2 to 3 hours to download, and afterwards it should be able to run smoothly. But please, be patient while the application downloads, and don’t pause it unless you’ve got between 2 to 3 hours to spare. I beseech this advice, out of experience, to those who are purchasing this game for the first time.
As for the game itself, it depends on what type of mac you use. If you want to expereince the thrill of a mega, epic-scale war (escpecially in multiplayer), then I advise you purchase a Mac computer that will sustain sharper graphics and large scale units. The game will play well on MacBook Pros and the latest laptops too, but it runs a bit slow. Nevertheless, after hours of battling English Knights and Saracens, I’d say that the updated version is worth the admission.
Waiting for this port to Mac for years!!!
This is by far the best Total War of all the series, but until tonight it has only been available on PC. I have yearned for a mac port of this classic since I switched from PC to mac. I have owned all of the series except for medieval 1 and napoleon, I recently bought Attila with Charlemagne expansion from a rival download company just to get a taste of what medieval II used to be on a PC- only now to find Medieval 2 just released for the Mac! The graphics are better than I remember on the PC (of course my current Mac is much more powerful than my 2009 PC). The cut scenes are fluid. Although this is version 1.0 of the port, so far its stable.
The newer TW series may be pretty but they have been terribly glitchy, and not fully developed at release. Medieval 2, though old is perfection in gameplay AI and tactics. No freaking in app purchases necessary like the newer releases, this is complete. Do yourself a favor and get this. Best of TW series, IMO #1 THIS, #2 Shogun 2, #3 Rome 1. If only creative could make the newer total wars as polished as this….
This is better than any of the other Total War titles available on the App Store. Adding religion to it makes controlling territory easier, but at the same time, creates the challenge of appeasing the Pope, and the possibility of dealing with a Pope from a faction that you are at war with (definitely not a good thing). I’ve had two instances where it has crashed while loading battles, but this hasn’t negatively affected my ability to enjoy it. I will say this to those who intend to purchase this title. It’s a BIG file, so make sure that you have a fast and steady internet connection before downloading it. Also, from what I’ve seen, most (if not all) of the negative reviews for this game are related not to gameplay or playability, but to download issues. Those who have been able to successfully download this title haven’t had much to say negatively about it. Most complaints are about downloads failing, so consider that.
