    A massive expansion to already great Medieval 2 that is a steal at $30.

    Medieval II: Total War Kingdoms

    A massive expansion to already great Medieval 2 that is a steal at $30.

    This has to be one of the, if not the largest expansion ever made. It features not 1 new campaign, not 2 or 3, but 4 new campaigns. That’s a whole lot of hours of gameplay. Unlike expansions from the past the this one is... Read Full Review

    Medieval II: Total War

    Creative Assembly gets Medieval on your azz and its even better the second time around

    Medieval 2: Total War is the second time the Creative Assembly has made a game in this period. It is not really a sequal though and rather an updated and improved version of the last game, but more than enough so to warr... Read Full Review

    A decent RTS that doesn't do a whole lot to advance the RTS genre despite its claims otherwise.

    Supreme Commannder is the much hyped spiritual sequal to Total Anihilation. The game has been touted as being the next generation of RTS but in realtiy it is a step backwards from the strides made to the genre over the l... Read Full Review
