    When the battles are this enjoyable and challenging, it's hard to fault Unicorn Games for not including more context for the fights, but it's simply impossible to avoid that criticism when the Total War games have such a hold on the same genre and setting as XIII Century.

    Think of it as an unofficial add-on. [July 2008, p.80]
  3. High on complexity, difficulty, tactics. Low on grand strategy. Will appeal to miniatures, table-top gamers and RTS players looking for a challenge.

    This game is amazing and underrated, not much advertisment on it, shame. Yes it can be compared to Medieval 2: Total War in general, howeverThis game is amazing and underrated, not much advertisment on it, shame. Yes it can be compared to Medieval 2: Total War in general, however the battle system is different, it needs more initial planning in order to win a battle, it can be considered as hardcore version of total war battles. The only con here that the game dosent have a campign map, only series of battles, but they are tight and needs a lot of strategy and planning, a battle can last much longer time comparing to total war games. The graphics are nice, better than Medieval 2, and comparable to Empire, while the sound and voice acting are average, the AI is decent, multiplayer is very enjoyable but usually its hard to find people online to play against. I am sure the next releases will be much better especially with campaign map. Full Review »
